In 2003, Saddam Hussein did an interview with the media where he stated he had no weapons of mass destruction and the US knew this and was propagating a lie to instigate regime change. Nobody believed Saddam, and we were outraged that he could lie about something “everyone knew” so obviously to be true.
Fast forward about 9 years, to what’s happening in Libya. Gaddafi is claiming that the United States is lying, using fanatical and over-exaggerated media claims, to go to war with Libya. Nobody believes Gaddafi.
The question is: why do we trust CNN, Fox, and all others who previously lied to us?
