ABSTRACT
The author discusses the future of Iraq after the war. He says one thing one learned from the war in Iraq is that if a lie is repeated enough, it will someday become an accepted truth. He adds that while there are pundits and reporters who confessed that they wrongly supported the war, their regrets are only reserved for their blind faith in the war planners and their lack of inquisitiveness. He believes the U.S. government owes the Iraqi people an apology for what it has done.
