Ex CIA boss George Tenet tried to rewrite his own role in history by going on TV and calling the Iraq invasion "a national tragedy" that even he knew four years ago was unwarranted and unjustified.
On February 5, 2003, Colin Powell made the Bush regime's case for war at the U.N. Security Council, even (straight out of Jonny Quest) showing slides of cartoony drawings of mobile WMD labs racing across the Iraqi desert.
The next day, February 6, was the National Prayer Breakfast, where the blood lust was palpable.
Tenet spoke at the prayer breakfast... The CIA director walked to the podium and, with no introductory remarks, intoned his own cartoonish view of the world:
God teaches us to be resolute in the face of evil, using all of the weapons and armor that the word of God supplies.
In chapter six of Paul's letter to the Ephesians, we're told, Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stance against the devil's schemes.
Our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the principalities, against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore, put on the whole armor of God so that when the day of evil comes you may be able to stand your ground and after you have done everything to stand, stand firm then with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of justice in place and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes with the gospel of peace.
Take up the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God, and pray at all times.
Yes. I think that's clearly a dissenting voice. If only they had listened...
