If you move that to the top of the list, essentially answering Cindy Sheehan's question, "What noble cause?" you effectively do two a couple of things:
- You make the lies about the causes look that much more embarrassing and hollow
- You show that they have failed at even their own agenda

- Most importantly, you have innoculated the public against the propaganda for the next war.
You can get the real goal down to a sentence: As the world's oil supply begins to decline, they wanted to make sure American companies control the spigot.
