Neocon Deep State?

Why else would President Biden nominate the infamous war-criminal and Iran Contra conspirator Elliott Abrams to even a minor position in his government?

Perhaps it’s because Abrams is an experienced old hand at censoring the press, having gotten his start under the Reagan Administration brow beating the New York Times into reassigning the reporter who broke the story of the El Mozote Massacre to the financial desk.

In the decades since this debacle, two things have become obvious: The first is that the El Mozote massacre was even worse than the reporters were able to determine at the time, and the second is that the US officials at the time, including especially Enders and Abrams, were lying on behalf of the killers.
