Why the Military Lies
TRANSCEND VIDEOS, 7 Dec 2020
17 Nov 2020 – Lt. Col. Danny Davis was a hero on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. Our army hero then became a whistleblowing legend by exposing the chronic monumental lies the military has told and continues to peddle about achieving victory in those convulsed and splintered nations. The costs of the military’s prevarications have been steep: trillions of dollars squandered on fool’s errands; the killing, maiming or displacement of millions; and the awakening of hatreds or revenge against the United States that make all citizens potential targets.
