It's like watching a patient who has lost limbs and organs due to a surgeon's gross malpractice continue to return to that same surgeon for the next operation, while scoffing at the doctors who warned of the dangers.
Wow. What a way with words. Sigh. Daily reading, for sure.
Just to add my two cents worth, with respect to the question and answer Greenwald brings up of why, when "we had ample opportunity to adjust, change course, alter our objectives, or leave" we didn't. He states the "reason we didn't is because the country was continuously lied to by the most morally depraved people one can fathom, who were so afraid of admitting error regarding the wisdom of the invasion that they kept insisting to Americans that things were going great and that everything would be fixed very soon."
Let's not forget that finding WMD and removing a brutal dictator were merely the candles on the cake for the American public to blow out. The main reason we invaded Iraq was to set up those permanent bases and to take control of the oil. There was no plan after the invasion because the buttheads that ran the program believed everyone, including the Iraqis, would just wet their pants at the opportunity to privatize Iraqi resources, and sell them off to the highest bidder! And that is why there still is no plan to leave. As Bush has indicated, no one's leaving during his term in office.
