In response to Thomas Sowell's column of Dec. 29, Dan Rather and Ted Koppel are amateurs in the self-serving use of presumed "facts."
The real propagandists, and rightful winners of the Goebbels Award for 2005, are the president and his close associates, in their willful use of Weapons of Mass Deception (WMD) to serve the agendas of their military-industrial complex puppeteers. Sowell's column is sad testimony to the thoroughness of their collaborative efforts.
Please read President Eisenhower's farewell address of January 1961 (http://coursesa.matrix.msu.edu/~hst306/documents/indust.html) and pay particular attention to section IV.
And the losers? Families and friends of our dead soldiers, contractors, Iraqi civilians and the world. Our efforts and resources can and must be better spent.
