Iraq all over again?

This is the very definition of irony and a self-fulfilling prophecy:

... the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threatens to attack the capital of Iraq. ISIS said it had executed 1,700 Iraqi soldiers, and posted photos online Sunday appearing to show some of the killings. [from CNN, The New York Times]

ISIS is what we wanted to prevent by invading Iraq. ISIS only exists because we invaded, removing the one man who prevented such a group from ever operating in the country. Be sure to thank Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Lewis Libby, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, George W. Bush, and company.

Now, is this reality in the news?

Nope. In fact, the people who called for and made the war a reality are at it again.

And they are all over the news.
