2. It will air on Monday night

Cheney will probably croak half way through the documentary.

insiders on the record exposing the hoax.

5. It was about the oil

After all. We knew it then, everyone knows it, now. I hope they come right out and document it.

6. I love Rachel again.

She, along with most of the MSNBCer were in my 'bad books' ever since that stupid First Debate Performances They Had.

But what she is doing with Hubris, makes me like her all over again. I'm sure she will hit a lot of nails right in their fricken heads.

yay! about time, this is real journalism again. I hope! Yes, she will.

Seeing as McCain and the rest of the felons want to rewrite the history of that illegal war, this is great timing. Unless they heard of this show in progress and wanted to offset it by being assholes about Hagel's appointment as he was against the war.

Interestin'!

7. Part of me really wants to watch it, because I know it will be an awesome show and spot on.

Another part knows all the rage I felt during that time will resurface. I dread experiencing those horrible emotions again. So glad the * reign of terror is over!

9. Reliving that rage is important

it's like the pleasure I get watching election night and that Roe melt down orRmoney's 47% clip. These things keep us going.

12. I just love that stuff too!

But what still makes me so mad is that those sociopath * war criminals will never face justice, at least not in this world.

Anyway, I will probably at least try to watch the show. If my bp starts going through the roof, might turn it off and wait for the DU commentary.

13. Take it from me Cheney's near death over the holidays

is justice. That heartless water boarding fucker of a war criminal is terrified eery minute of the day. The laws of nature do work. What's more Pinochet also thought he would escape.

15. Generals in Argentina and Chile are still paying

We may not live to see justice it but these fuckers do pay eventually.
Think about it everyone of them is terrified to leave to US fearing arrest in other parts of the world.

10. With every promo for this show, she has added the caveat that heads will likely explode!


I can only imagine the meetings that took place over the making of this documentary and the reaction to it was likely at the top of their list of things to talk about.

This is a boil that has needed lancing for 10 years. A lot of what we'll see will not necessarily be new information, although some of it will be. What will be "new" will be laying it all out to a logical conclusion of what was done to us by the Bush Administration to convince us that we "needed" to go to war in Iraq. Most Americans were duped into it because they listened to Bush/Cheney and their henchmen and the lies they told us were accepted as truth. The few people who actually said aloud that it was BS were ignored and were labeled as "tin foil hatters". And no one wanted to believe that our own government would do this to us. But they did. And this documentary is going to show how they did it.

I think part of her ultimate goal in doing this is to make the case that it REALLY happened, it was not just a theory unbolstered by facts. There are plenty of facts to show that it was a willful and deliberate deception of the American people. And the second thing is to try to help instill a healthy dose of skepticism in the American people to NEVER AGAIN have blind trust, especially when there are others pleading for transparency and openness to the facts. Maybe once it's all out there, people will begin to understand that things like this don't just happen somewhere else, but can happen HERE and right under our noses.

My fondest wish would be for those who pulled this off to be prosecuted for their lies and deceptions. Not holding my breath, but just the fact that this documentary spells it all out helps. At least the people who do not want to believe it will have a harder time defending what happened. I do not think the comments made by Cheney in the past few days just "happened" to have been released. They are deliberate attempts to rewrite history and blunt the impact of this documentary. I hope the American people are smart enough to see through his lies and continued distortions.

And yes, I think a few heads will explode Monday night at 9 p.m. (Eastern) on MSNBC.

23. One correction:

Thank you Grammy23 for expounding this so well. I need to make one correction if I may, and with great respect and deference to your wise words, madam: "The few people who actually said aloud that it was BS were ignored and were labeled as "tin foil hatters""

No. We were called traitors.

and what you say is true but that doesn't mean we shouldn't have a documentary exposing the hoax.

18. MSNBC has evolved a lot since that time.

To wit, the hiring of Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz as major commentators.

21. you are right, of course.

but Rachel didn't have her show back then.

She might have been a weasel like all of her colleagues and help The Lie, but we can't know.

but yah, I feel what you say. Fuck all those enabling killers. Those big shitshots that think they know everything, like the Brokaws and the Rathers and all the hefties that were panting with orgasmic pleasure whiling being 'patriotic' to the President and country.

fucking fuck fuck liar stupid people.

That about sums it up for me.

MSNBC has such a big audience now that I have a feeling all those Iraq War revisionists will be watching. John McCain seems especially desperate to defend the war these days. I hope something comes of this documentary, and it doesn't just fade into oblivion, unseen by anyone outside the Progressive community.
