The brain-washing efforts by the Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld propaganda machine may not be believed by 65 percent of the citizens at this point, but they have the media minds quaking in fear of being exterminated as happened to Valerie Plame (for her husband's big mouth), Richard Clark, Paul, O'Neill, and Hans Blix.
In a pre-war column (8/6/02) that undercuts the current notion that everyone got the WMD story wrong, Scheer wrote that “a consensus of experts” told the Senate that Iraq’s chemical and biological arsenals were “almost totally destroyed during eight years of inspections.” Shortly after George W.
Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech, and well ahead of the pack, Scheer (6/3/03) called White House pretexts for war a “big lie.” Scheer was also one of the first columnists to call for withdrawal from Iraq, in a November 4, 2003 column that presaged shifting public opinion on the issue--though his position is still hard to find among his fellow pundits. More than 1,700 U.S. soldiers and tens of thousands of Iraqis have died since Scheer’s call for withdrawal was published.
