The devious neocons are retelling the Iraq War narrative to shift blame for the $1T (choke, trillion) catastrophe and the deaths of nearly 4,500 U.S. soldiers and countless disabled walking wounded and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis onto the POTUS 44. That dog won't hunt for The Deadline Poet and it won't hunt for this blogger either. If this is (fair & balanced) rejection of revisionism, so be it.
Radical Jihadists Gain Ground In Iraq
By The Deadline Poet (Calvin Trillin)
Tag Cloud of the following piece of writing
All the neocons said we must conquer Iraq;
It could harbor a terrorist crew.
So invade it we did, and because of that fact,
What they made up has really come true. Ω
