Colin Powel’s top analyst, Greg Thielmann, appeared on 60 Minutes II this past Wednesday.
As you may recall, Powell expressed the Administration’s rationale for going to war with Iraq in a major speech to the UN on February 5th.
Thielmann tells us the address was loaded with half truths and outright lies.
This is not news?
I have been looking for someone to mention it here, but a Bush apologist, no one has. It hasn’t been picked up by the media.
Well, Chris Matthews tried to lay it out on Hardball, but a Bush apologist, using nonstop bullshit, blunted the entire exercise. (It takes a lot of skill to thwart Matthews, but this woman stopped him in his tracks.)
And Maureen Dowd gave just a brief mention of the matter in her 10/16 NYT column.
Did anyone else see this episode of 60 Minutes II?
