Why do I turn to Bill Moyers after reading that neo-con hero Ahmed Chalabi apparently told Iran that the U.S. had broken their code? Recently Bill explained why he now wears a flag on his lapel, and it is because the likes of Richard Perle, Chalabi's number one supporter and the insider's insider, have captured the flag as their logo. "When I see flags sprouting on official lapels, I think of the time in China when I saw Mao's Little Red Book on every official's desk, omnipresent and unread."
Moyers went on: "Those with flags in their lapels...are people whose ardor for war grows disproportionately to their distance from the fighting."
Think about it. This country went to war because of Richard Perle, Chalabi, Newt Gingrich and Donald Rumsfeld. Now it is indisputable that they lied. Our soldiers died. They should, at a minimum, remove the flag from their lapels.
