MSNBC’s short documentary titled “Why We Did It” that aired March 06th, 2014 was somewhat informative but mostly anticlimactic. The only people in this country who have never believed that these actions were about oil are either disingenuous for political reasons, or stupid.
The newly revealed documents and statements by insiders of the time are interesting but don’t really provide closure. Most people knew it was a scam that had something vaguely to do with oil from the beginning. Unfortunately, the picture, painted by these “new” details makes the Bush administration and particularly Dick Chaney look much more benign than they actually were.
