"Military media analysts" and viewers duped on Iraq

This is a New York Times story that must be read by anyone who wants to know what the heck is going on when independent media observers reported that the Iraq war was a futile, ignorant, horrible conundrum that the Bush administration dragged the US into, while former military officers of good standing, supposedly experts on what's going on in Iraq, said we were succeeding, it wasn't going as badly as all those negative network nitwits were reporting?

Turns out they were taken on orchestrated tours and fed bogus information by the Bush administration and military Bush sychophants, in what they *believed* to be, in all honesty, what was actually happening - that it wasn't going all that badly, yadda yadda yadda.

Many of those "military media analysts" now feel duped, used and abused by the Bush administration and, like General Colin Powell, that they ended up lying - unintentionally - to the public to persuade us that those lies were the truth.

Read it for yourself. God bless real journalists.
