"... with anyone expressing the least bit of skepticism, critical  
thinking, etc. being labeled a 'left-wing extremist' ..."

By whom? 


The propaganda machine seems to have gotten to the Iraqis themselves:

"More than 20 Iraqis of different sects and ethnicities said in
interviews across the country that they viewed the report favorably
because it - or, at least the parts shown on television in Iraq -
portrayed the situation accurately."

You would think a propagandist this good would be able to wring more
support for the war out of Americans but it doesn't really seem to be
working very well.
