Michael Ware Denies Heckling McCain: "When I Raised My Hand To Ask A Question, The Press Conference Abruptly Ended."
Michael Ware just said on Your World that he did not heckle John McCain and Lindsay Graham in Baghdad as was reported by Drudge, Ware said he didn't even ask a single question during the press conference. He says go to the tape and see for yourself...
O'BRIEN: Let me ask you a question. There was a report that said you were heckling and you were laughing during the senator's press conference. Is that true?
WARE: Well, let's bear in mind that this is a report that was leaked by an unnamed official of some kind to a blog, to somewhere on the Internet. No one has gone and put their name forward. We certainly haven't heard Senator McCain say anything about it or any of his staff have come forward to say anything about it.
I did not heckle the senator. Indeed, I didn't say a word. I didn't even ask a question. In fact, when I raised my hand to ask a question, the press conference abruptly ended.
So what I would suggest is that anyone who has any queries about whether I heckled, watch the videotape of the press conference. Soledad.
Raw Story has the McCain presser...No heckling there...Once again Drudge is proved to be a fool...
GORANI: And lastly, I've got to ask you about a report there that said that you were heckling and laughing during Senator McCain's news conference in Baghdad. Is there any truth to that?
WARE: No, there is not, Hala. I didn't heckle. Indeed, it's been accused that I asked mocking questions. And as you'll see, I never even asked a question. In fact, I sat there silently.
This has been a political brouhaha that started last week.
Unfortunately, Senator McCain has had one of the strongest Iraq policies that most reflects the realities here on the ground, but last week he made one gaffe. And when corrected on that, it's now brought his entire Iraq policy into question, and he seems to have backed himself into a corner and invested everything on his so-called Baghdad walk yesterday, even though it was enveloped in such a blanket of security
Just another Drudge smear people---move along.
