SHOULDN’T THIS BE FRONT PAGE NEWS EVERYWHERE?

Ought not the cable news purveyors– who seem to have trouble finding meaningful subjects with which to fill their 24-hour cycles– be hyping this monumental admission to death?

A large team of U.S. Department of Justice officials, drawn from its uppermost echelons, was there, including three of the principal architects of the legal policies for the war on terror. In not-for-attribution comments, one openly acknowledged that the war on terror was cast in the first instance as a political ploy and that it was a conceptual failure. It was now essential for the Americans to move on to something else, he argued. None of the others challenged that view; indeed, two of them said that they agreed with it. So even inside of the Bush Administration, the war on terror has been written off as a scam that served its limited political purpose and is finished.
(emphasis mine)

I guess the corporate media also don’t want to admit that their meal ticket for the past seven years has been a scam. Damn it.
