Tucker Carlson had the chutzpah to insinuate to Dennis Kucinich that meeting with the Syrian leadership was unAmerican and cavorting with the enemy.
Tucker Carlson had the chutzpah to insinuate to Dennis Kucinich that meeting with the Syrian leadership was unAmerican and cavorting with the enemy. Nevermind that Congressman Kucinich was checking up on the over 1.5 million Iraqi refugees that our war-based-on-a-lie has placed firmly in the Syrian front yard. One point five million. No other country has taken in more Iraqi refugees, refugees from the direct result of our invasion, than Syria.
Be sure to catch the incredulity of the Syrian interviewer when she asks (at about 7:09)
Q: "So does George Bush actually not see himself as having failed in Iraq? Does he think he has done something right?"
A: [Obviously straining at choosing just the right words] "I would expect that... he probably believes... that he is doing the right thing."
Kudos, Mr. Kucinich, for reining in your desire to yell, "Well duh! The Preznit's a borderline dominionist neocon, what do you expect?" The congressman gives a nice slap to Halliburton in this one, too.
