Not true if you consider it valid, but illicit.  I know that is not what I originally suggested, but I think I see the NO more like I see the Orthodox Church's liturgy. The OC liturgy may be valid, but it is illegitimate.  I think this would better express my latest feelings about it.

Also, no one has answered my question up-thread:

WHY were any of these sacraments tampered with in the first place?  Was there something deficient in the Old Rites? Has the Church ever had a real answer for the necessity of the New (and improved...cough cough) Mass/sacraments? 

The Pope has certain authority over the Sacraments.  The Sacraments themselves were not tampered with.  There are certain things that remain the same about them, such as form and matter, but make no mistake....there is no new Sacrament in the Church since Vatican II, they are the same seven Sacraments that Jesus Christ gave the Church.
