In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

Invasion: War Diaries From Iraq

A multimedia exhibit featuring a Marine's war diary, using text, photos and video to explore the invasion of Iraq and its aftermath
Feb 4, 2013 - Our exhibit explores the Iraq war in an original, genre-busting way. Timed to the 10th anniversary of the invasion, the exhibit centers around large-format reprints of a searingly honest diary written by Lt. Tim McLaughlin, who was at the Pentagon on 9/11, whose battalion spearheaded the Iraq invasion, and whose American flag was placed over a famous statue of Saddam Hussein in Baghdad's Firdos Square. The exhibit will include the iconic flag, which Tim kept in a safe deposit box when he returned home from Iraq. It will also feature photos of the invasion by Gary Knight and texts by Peter Maass.

The diaries contain drawings, maps, pictures and descriptions of battle--not just from Iraq, but from inside the Pentagon after it was attacked. The entries are raw and brutal, though occasionally absurd and humorous; this is how war diaries have always been. As the diaries were written by hand, Tim's thoughts and deeds are not flattened by the look of an impersonal computer font. His emotions--anger, exhaustion, confusion, boredom, lust--are visible in the handwriting. A unique mix of art and text and witness, the diaries tell in a remarkable way the story of a Marine's violent and poignant journey through America in wartime. They show, without the usual filters of the media or politicians, the hard lives and difficult choices of the men and women who fight our wars. read more>>>
