A ’60 Minutes’ Broadcast which Was Filled with Lies


From late 2001 until they left office in 2009, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney waged wars which were unwinnable in Afghanistan and Iraq. They decided that our military would not serve a single tour of duty in these failed military engagements; they served two, three, four, and even five tours of duty in these life threatening and horrific conflicts. 

No one who was not involved in these traumatic events can imagine the mental and physical damage which would change the lives of those men and women who were forced to experience these horrific and life threatening situations.

Last evening a television broadcast which I once respected attempted to cover-up the facts of these multiple deployments with a theory from one assumptive scientist. The facts prove that he was attempting to disguise another misleading effort by our nation’s government.

Multiple studies have proven that repeated deployments to war zones have created mental problems not experienced by any of our soldiers in the history of our nation’s involvement in the many wars approved by an ignorant government. No human can sustain a normal mental state after they have been repeatedly forced to experience the terrors of war.

Any attempts to explain the results of these experiences with physiological damage is misleading. The truth is that no human can survive multiple deployments in a war zone without suffering severe mental repercussions.

’60 Minutes’ attempted to cover-up the facts. George W. Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney destroyed the lives of thousands of our young men and women by exposing them to the horrors of war time and time again. I continue to believe that the Bush administration should be tried for war crimes.

I beg all of you who read this to pass this fact onto all of our nation’s people. We must end the lies our mainstream media accepts as fact. The American people have been lied to for decades, and the media has protected their falsehoods.

This is our country, and the enemies are our government, and the once respected fourth estate.

Stand up for yourselves and your country. Your are the United States of America. Your government is not part of the nation founded by the men who created our nation in 1776 and 1789. Let’s take our country back by voting for men and women who support the majority of all Americans. Encourage all Americans to vote on November 6, 2018.
