Panetta Expects Iraq to Extend U.S. Presence

The Wall Street Journal reports that the U.S. government will extend military presence in Iraq, almost a year after Rachel Maddow declared the war’s end:

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta voiced confidence Friday that Iraq would agree to some continued U.S. military presence beyond the official American withdrawal at the end of the year. Mr. Panetta and top U.S. commanders have been pressing Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and other leaders for months to make up their minds about whether to ask the U.S. to keep forces in Iraq beyond Dec. 31.

Since Judith Miller and New York Times’ collusion with the Bush Administration to fool the country into war, corporate media and its brand of “journalism” has become a mere mouthpiece for the state.

Some statistics:

That Rachel Maddow and her fellow “journalists” retain any credibility is a symptom of Americans’ willful ignorance of the truth:  We are still at war.
