Again, the urgent need for the contest is to re-normalize the needed 'strong horse' type of American leadership that manifested with Operation Iraqi Freedom. Currently, the needed 'strong horse' type of American leadership has been disqualified by a taboo premised on a stigma derived from a false narrative of OIF.

As such, the most important "stuff for an effective counter-narrative" is professors and pundits such as you endeavoring to set the record straight on the 'why' of OIF at the premise level of the zeitgeist in order to break the taboo that's withholding the needed 'strong horse' type of American leadership. For that purpose, OIF must be de-stigmatized and the needed 'strong horse' type of American leadership that manifested with OIF must be re-normalized, so that Americans will once again understand that America is right to stop ISIS' terrorist threat in the same way America was right to stop Saddam's terrorist threat.
