When it comes to the Iraq War, Americans aren't quite remembering things right. Although a poll in 2003 revealed that a strong majority of the public supported sending troops to Iraq, only a minority of Americans today remember being in favor of the Iraq War. Is it that Americans are simply failing to remember correctly, or are they changing their responses to reflect the current public opinion of the Iraq War?

This information is somewhat reflective of what we are seeing currently with politicians being asked the same question.

If the news sources keep on parading chicken hawks and backroom arms merchants for their "informed" opinions, what do you expect. If folks keep on listening to the same unreliable sources, what do you expect. If citizens refuse to take their civic duty of reading beyond the headline... Change the information source and you change your mind. Change your mind and you change your world.

At the end of the day, we need to worry about the future. Can't change the past - what's done is done. How do we learn from our mistakes? How do we replicate our accomplishments?
