Too Good To Script

Saturday, May 06, 2006

Donald Rumsfeld in a 2003 interview with George Stephanopoulos:

"We know where they [WMD] are. They're in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south and north somewhat."

Now, Donald Rumsfeld in an exchange with some (for the time being) anonymous interlocutor:

interlocutor:"Why did you lie to get us into a war that caused these kind of casualties and was not necessary?"

Rumsfeld: "I did not lie,"

Interlocutor: "You said you knew where they were."

Rumsfeld: "I did not." "I said I knew where suspect sites were."

Interlocutor: "You
said you know where they were, near Tikrit, near Baghdad, and north,
east, south and west of there. Those are your words."
"I'd just like an honest answer. We're
talking about lies."

Here's the best part: the interlocutor was a retired CIA analyst, one who used to give the President daily briefings, Ray McGovern.

From generals to CIA analysts to the American public, we can all agree: the Bush administration flat-out lied about our reasons for invading Iraq.

That's all. NPH just wanted to point that out.
