Leaked Iraq war files portray weak, divided nation – Yahoo! News

This is not surprising, even in an era in which the media supposedly sees and tells all. Our government, particularly the armed forces, routinely keep information from the American public under the guise of “national security.” During the Vietnam War General Westmoreland reported inflated body counts of dead Viet Cong in order to give us the impression that we were winning a war that no one wanted. Why is this? We are entitled to know the truth even if it is a harsh truth that some do not want to hear or just refuse to acknowledge. I want to know what’s going on and I have a right to know and form my own opinions based on the truth, not some bloated half truth that the government chooses to disclose to make themselves look good. What’s the moral of the story? Do not accept or believe everything our so called leaders choose to tell us. Ask questions, do some digging on your own. As a whole we are more intelligent than the people who are chosen to dictate American policy give us credit for.
