"We Are In Baghdad Now"

frontline: truth, war and consquences: introduction | PBS:

“When asked if he feels any unease or discomfort at the fact that some Americans feel the United States was suckered into a war under the false pretenses of disarming Saddam of weapons of mass destruction, Chalabi replies, ‘No. … We are in Baghdad now.'”

You’ve got to learn not to listen to anything they say, and look only at what they are actually doing. They are in Baghdad now.

Other examples – taxes on the rich greatly reduced, others like the estate tax just eliminated; the taxes the rest of us pay are going out as contracts and payments to campaign contributors; Medicare gone in a few years; legislation is now entirely one-party; the massive deficits mean that our Social Security is already gone; environmental laws decimated; the courts taken over by the Federalist Society… All the words are just smokescreens for what they are accomplishing.

They are in Baghdad now.
