6. This is a great editorial, even 2 years late
What I want to know is how the junta managed to fool every journalist in this country, when they didn't manage to fool US?

Maybe they need to approach Washington press releases with a Chinese proverb: "To be uncertain is to be uncomfortable, but to be certain is to be ridiculous."

My guess is that they bought the lies because everybody in an official position was telling the same lies, and they were all so CERTAIN. I think that's why Congress bought the lies. Only those of us with fully operational bullshit detectors didn't buy them, like Dean, Kucinich, the Greens, the far left, and other marginalized people who have learned the hard way to mistrust the morally certain.
