Lileks on the "Bush Lied" Theme

The literati and glitterati like to dump on the plebs who listen to Limbaugh, Hannity, et al as sheep who live in an echo chamber. Was there ever an echo chamber more reality-denying than the MSM?

James Lileks takes their little world apart with fierce humor HERE:

Saddam was a secularist!

Saddam had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11

Prescott Bush’s Secret Nazi Past and the internationalist agenda “New World Order.”

Fletcher Prouty and Winston Churchill’s installation by a “cabal” as exemplified by the Military Industrial Complex

The war is wrong and illegal and it’s all about oil and we should have attacked Saudi Arabia

Saddam would not have been a threat to the US if allowed him to remain in power

We went into Iraq for no reason

We’re creating terrorists out of people who otherwise be utterly peaceful and friendly

Afghanistan is producing heroin

The entire history of the US and Iraq in the 90s, including the Clinton-era attacks, the no-fly zone violations, and the adoption of regime change as official US policy is not only irrelevant but it’s very annoying to bring up

No weapons of mass destruction, therefore it was all a lie.

This passes for wisdom – and truth – in the insulated bubble within which the ever shrinking MSM mavens live.

Their passing will not be missed.
