Thank you to Alison Croggan, Australian poet and novelist, for directing me to this site: http://www.lrb.co.uk/v27/n03/wein01_.html
The article is a horrific indictment of the war in Iraq. It has long been said, The first casualty of war is Truth, but here we have a war manufactured by the manipulations of the facts and the 'public relations' work of one part of the American government not only against another country but to con and dupe their own people. How it is going to end I cannot imagine. There is only worse to come.
