Helen Thomas Rides Again - Update


Our Kid called on Helen Thomas this morning.

It's been three years.
HELEN THOMAS: I'd like to ask you, Mr. President, your decision to invade Iraq has caused the deaths of thousands of Americans and Iraqis, wounds of Americans and Iraqis for a lifetime.

Every reason given, publicly at least, has turned out not to be true.

My question is, why did you really want to go to war?

From the moment you stepped into the White House, from your Cabinet -- your Cabinet officers, intelligence people, and so forth -- what was your real reason? You have said it wasn't oil -- quest for oil, it hasn't been Israel, or anything else.

What was it?
Incredible TV.

Hopefully, Crooks & Liars will have the video soon: I'll keep checking for the transcript.

UPDATE: They do.

In the meantime, check out C & L's link to Kevin Phillip's appearance on Lou Dobbs:
PHILLIPS: One of the reasons I think we have kind of screwed up economic politician in some ways is that a lot of Americans have stopped worrying about the economy because they're waiting for the second coming.

DOBBS: And you mean this quite literally?

PHILLIPS: I mean it quite literally.
Good stuff, more soon...
