"Hindsight is always 20/20. Most political activists don't understand this concept."
More bullshit. How many times do people have to read this kind of nonsense before they wake up? Let's see - the Bush administration was warned by people in the CIA, the State Department, UN inspectors and individuals in other governments that there was no evidence Hussein was either working with Al Qaida or possessed weapons of mass destruction. Bush ignored all this advice and sought only that which supported his desire for war.
As for the Reagan administration, it KNEW its allies in countries like El Salvador and Guatemala were murdering hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians - and it worked hard to COVER UP that knowledge, so American aid - and the killings - could continue.
Mass murder is mass murder, whether committed in the name of anti-communism, or Christianity, or Islam or anything else. There is no excuse for it.
So drop this "hindsight" bullshit. It isn't hindsight if you knew about it AT THE TIME. Jesus fucking Christ - how clueless can you guys be?
