To be fair, if you lie and then retract it's a lie.
If you repeat the lie often enough, it becomes a version of the truth.
If the ends justify the means, then it becomes truth.

The truth about the truth is that nobody cares for it.
WMD, is the outrage still burning? Nope
American dropped two nukes on civilians, do we care? Nah, in fact it was humane as it ended the war early.
Do we care that the West armed the Taliban, Iraq and ISIS... Nah, it's all good.
