The Bush cabinet is working fast and furiously to re-write history. Since our citizens have selective memory, I’m sad to say that the whitewash will probably work.
Yes, Oceania has ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia. I mean Eurasia. No, I mean Eastasia. If you don’t believe me, look it up in the Memory Hole.
— George Orwell, paraphrased
Lies beget lies,and then they forget the truth. It is somuch easier to just tell the truth so you don’t have to remember all the lies. Unfortunately, one must first be capable of recognizing the truth and appreciating it for what it is. The Bush cabinet recognized the truth as something to be molded and manipulated. Remember, the three above were not the only ones involved in the rush to war, and should not be the only ones taken before the International Criminal Court.
