3. Because the media co-operated so much with Bushco. Otherwise, Bushco

never could have sold that war as it did.


And it was so obvious.

My recollection is that tv folk did a few seconds of something approaching a mea culpa at some point. The implication was that they had been too trusting, been played or whatever. Nothing said straight out, though.

But, if you asked any Arab over age 9 if there was any possiblity that Saddam had partnered with Bin Ladin, they would have been adamant that the two hated each other. As for Saddam's having acted alone, he knew he was a big frog in a small pond and he was not suicidal. He would never have taken on the U.S., let alone the U.S. and its allies. And, had he attacked the U.S., he would definitely have been at war with the U.S. and irs allies.

So, the two possiblilities are that media knew what every Arab knew and was complicit with Bushco anyway, or that our media didn't know and didn't bother to try to find out, what every Arab over the age of 9 knew and therefore has no business being our media.

Either way, they don't come out looking good.,
