"Remember the Maine", the rallying cry for the Spanish American War, was commonly known as the lie that it was, but by the time it made it into modern day text books the truth was scrubbed from the story. And, I just heard on the radio the other day that there was finally unassailable proof that the Gulf of Tonkin was pure balderdash. *snicker* But I'd had that understanding since ... a long time ago, well over 10 years.
