We convinced the world that Iraq had WMD. They didn't.
We convinced the world that our currency was safe and secure. It wasn't.
We convinced the world that our mortgages were appraised, triple-A rated, and as good as gold. They weren't.
We convinced the world, post-Sarbanes-Oxley, that are CEO's were legit, and that their personal guarantee was on their companies' financial results. Instead, they were corrupt, the results were fiction, and there would be no prosecutions.
We convinced the world that we should be trusted and respected. Instead, we screwed them all.
So, are we now The Great Deceiver? Should the world ever trust us again? Will the world ever trust us again? And aren't you ashamed that the good name of America has now been destroyed?
