IF THE DRUG WAR isn't the only war producing liars "in a good cause." No surprise.

Both these wars remind me of the way the Catholic Church operated back when it was just "The Church." For centuries, the attitude was "Whatever promotes belief is the truth." Thus any amount of lies, forgery, and deception could be "true" as long as the dirty deeds fooled the rubes into giving their slavish obedience and their money promoted devotion among the masses. Maybe we don't need "drug czars" and "terror warriors" as much as -- let's be honest here -- we need a pope of politics.
