“Air America” host Al Franken nails Washington Times editor Tony Blankley for misleading readers about an editorial he wrote on Richard Clarke and terrorism. Blankley can only sputter.
Crooks and Liars:
Tony was just asking for it. He makes this ridiculous argument to try and downplay the significance of the NIE and Matthews nails him on it before Franken even gets a shot. Tony says we shouldn’t expect to see results because we’re not “at the end of the war” and argues its only natural to see more enemies now. Franken reminds him that we were repeatedly told before the start of the war that this would be a quick in and out, greeted as liberators, etc.
