Glenn Beck Admits Liberals Were Right About Iraq War
June 18, 2014

Has there been a lunar eclipse lately? I know we one in April, but that was three months ago. We had a full moon five days ago, but I don't think Glenn Beck was bitten by a werewolf, do you? Either way, this is something I thought I'd never hear come out of his mouth. He actually admitted that liberals were right about about the Iraq war.

There are many things you'd never expect Glenn Beck to say: "Barack Obama is a great president," "the Affordable Care Act was a huge success," "amnesty for all undocumented immigrants!"

But "liberals, you were right" tops them all. And yet:

"From the beginning, most people on the left were against going into Iraq. I wasn’t.... Liberals, you were right. We shouldn’t have."

Beck made this surprising declaration on his radio show on Tuesday while discussing the widening rift between Republicans and Democrats. He urged both parties to come together to oppose another war in Iraq.

"Not one more life. Not one more life. Not one more dollar, not one more airplane, not one more bullet, not one more Marine, not one more arm or leg or eye. Not one more," he said. "This must end now. Now can't we come together on that?"

Listening to this rant called "Enough is enough," in the above video, he was all over the place. He also blamed not Fox News, AM talk radio, or conservative activists, but politicians for making Americans hate each other which is nonsense, but I guess he has to make himself feel better before telling the truth about Iraq.

That doesn't mean he's forgiven for warmongering and joining in the smearing of anyone who was against he war or take them off the hook for the scores of Americans and Iraqis that have died or have been wounded as a result of their fearmongering, but it is nice to hear. Much of the rest of the video is a bombastic attack to excuse himself from what he helped sow and reap.

Can you help us out?
