BBC April 9 2003: “Tonight [Blair] stands a larger man”

“BBC April 9 2003: “Tonight [Blair] stands a larger man”
Andrew Marr gave this piece to camera for BBC News outside 10 Downing Street April 9 2003, the day Baghdad was “liberated” by US troops. We all know now the hollowness of this triumphalists nonsense. We know about the atrocities committed by the “coalition of the willing” against Iraqi civilians, the indiscriminate usage of depleted uranium, the wanton and deliberate destruction of infrastructure. Above all we know about the web of lies that underpinned it all.

If the BBC and other outlets had been doing their job we might have found out more about the latter before it was too late. Lives would have been saved. The geopolitics of the Middle East might have been saved from chaos. But instead of objective reporting and investigation the BBC gave us Marr genuflecting and drooling and telling us Blair was “right” and revealed as a “larger man.”

Is it acceptable to see the same outlets – and even many of the same names – shilling just as brazenly today for the “humanitarian” invasion of Syria?”
