I Blame The Freemasons.
"Here's hoping that Holbrooke's apparent death bed admission will be a tipping point for public understanding that the war is unwinnable. . . why did big Canadian media outlets not even make mention of this in their reports on his death?"
Could it be the Bilderbergers? The Jesuits? Alien reptiles in human form? Or could it be. . . oh, wait a minute: "It used to takes decades for legends about the supposed last words of famous people to seep into the culture and morph through constant repetition, until some enterprising scholar would look for hard evidence and soberly conclude that the well-known observation was most likely a myth or misunderstanding. In the case of Richard C. Holbrooke, the hard-charging diplomat who died on Monday, in the Internet age, that process took less than 24 hours."
I still blame the Masons.
