Read Backwards From Here

Bob Cesca's Robert Parry's forensic audit of the Washington Post's state of Continuous Fail (Why the Washington Post’s Fred Hiatt Should Be Fired) ends as follows:
The other costs from the Iraq War included 4,486 U.S. soldiers dead along with hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. The final price tag for U.S. taxpayers is estimated to exceed $1 trillion.

Iraq today remains a violently divided society where the Shiite and Sunni communities are deeply estranged and where the former Sunni authoritarian regime has been replaced by an authoritarian Shiite regime. Whereas Saddam Hussein’s Iraq was considered a bulwark against Iran, the current Iraqi government is an ally of Iran.

Except for some retirements and deaths (including Michael Kelly who died in a vehicle crash in Iraq), the editorial pages of the Washington Post and the roster of star columnists remain remarkably similar to what it was a decade ago. Fred Hiatt is still the editor in charge.
Which is why you should probably start at the beginning and read the whole thing.

Thank god it's Robert Pary since Cesca is the absolute worst of all O-bot hacks. The man cannot be taken seriously. He will never ever doubt Obama's motives even light of obvious criminal defects.

Gosh, I remember when Robert Parry and ConsortiumNews were considered conspiracy theorists by respectable liberals. How times change.
