We Must Remember the 9/11 War Lies

by Thom Hartmann

“Today is 9/11, the event that first brought America together and then was cynically exploited by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney to have a war against Iraq, followed by their illegal invasion of Afghanistan just a bit more than a year earlier. Yet the media today (so far, anyway) is curiously silent about Bush and Cheney’s lies. Given the costs of both these wars (and the current possibility of our being drawn deeper into conflict in both Ukraine and Taiwan) it’s an important moment to discuss our history of wars, both illegal and unnecessary, and those that are arguably essential to the survival of democracy in the world.” (09/11/23)
