Dick Cheney: tethered to reality?
From Hardball 11/08/05
Remember when Dick Cheney said it was pretty well confirmed before he didn't?
In '01, Cheney said this on MTP: CHENEY: Its been pretty well confirmed that he did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service in Czechoslovakia last April.
on 6/19/04 CNBC, he said:
GLORIA BORGER, TV SHOW HOST: You have said in the past that it was, quote, pretty well confirmed.
CHENEY: No, I never said that. BORGER: OK.
CHENEY: I never said that. BORGER: I think that is...
CHENEY: Absolutely not.
This clip shows the real Dr. Evil. He knows exactly what he said in 01', and as Mikey says: Although I have to say I just was struck watching that Gloria Borger interview juxtaposed with the Meet the Press comment.---I mean, it justit does raise questions about the tether to reality here, which I think is at the heart of much of the controversy about his prewar statements and the role he played in the run-up to war.
