I recall one episode that illustrates a certain conceptual blindness, an ethical denial that such a major event as a war could be driven by sheer greed.

Well put.

I think it is a combination of sheer greed - the confluence of Big Oil and Big Money - and the ruthless pragmatism superbly illustrated from 1.10 to 1.40 by Cliff Robertson in this clip.

Great clip with Robertson's last taunt about the NYT. He's right. There are plenty of stories that don't make it for a variety of reasons, some good, some not.
