For those of you that did not catch this earlier, this is too rich not to share. I will try to find the entire clip and post, if able. Ari Fleischer visited Chris Matthews today.
I wished Chris would have pointed out that Saddam Hussein never attacked the United States a first time.
Ah. Here is the long version. This is why I like Matthews. WARNING Really long tubes ahead…but worth the time.
It worked for Reagan. It even worked for Nixon. Do you think if they lie long enough and hard enough, any of us will buy this? The sad truth is, maybe.
With even more bush/Cheney wackadoodleness, Jonny Alter reported on Countdown that during a forum with Seymour Hersh and Walter Mondale, Hersh let slip that he is writing a book that includes reporting on “Dick Cheney sponsored assassination rings”. He said that orders went around CIA chiefs abroad, using military personnel for assassinations. Alter suggests that what we may find out about Cheney will “curl our hair”. I wish I could project his inflection.
Never mind. See for yourself. The crazy Cheney shit starts around 5.40 minutes.
Did we actually just live through a John le Carre novel? I think I have asked this before. Perhaps the scary answer is that Dick Cheney is living in a le Carre novel, and the world paid the price for his delusions.
