Listened today to Thom dispute the perception a fellow who happened to be in Iraq, I guess for the invasion. Thom brought up how Pres. Bush had turned down an offer to bring Osama BinLaden to justice to be tried. How GW felt the need to be a war president etc. Besides Thom's facts and the important fact brought up by an informed caller regarding one of the other reasons for invading Afghanistan, an oil pipeline, another significant reason we had no reason was that no Afghani or Iraqi were involved in the 9/11 attacks.

Years ago that expression was developed to make the point that the media often creates a drumbeat that leads to war. William Randolop Hearst reportedly told a photographer before Spanish-American War, "You give me the pictures, and I'll give you the war."
