Unsurprising News from Mohammed El Baradei

Via Yahoo:

"NEW YORK – Former chief U.N. nuclear inspector Mohamed ElBaradei suggests in a new memoir that Bush administration officials should face international criminal investigation for the "shame of a needless war" in Iraq.

Freer to speak now than he was as an international civil servant, the Nobel-winning Egyptian accuses U.S. leaders of "grotesque distortion" in the run-up to the 2003 Iraq invasion, when then-President George W. Bush and his lieutenants claimed Iraq possessed doomsday weapons despite contrary evidence collected by ElBaradei's and other arms inspectors inside the country."

Do you think that the needless murder of a million people in a mindless war of aggression will receive as much attention from the American press in the next few weeks as the issue of whether Bill Ayers really wrote Obama's autobiography?

One more reason our country is now hurtling toward dictatorship.

The media will cover this story no more that they they've covered climate change and global warming.
