Weekly Video Roundup
Posted on Jan 12, 2007
This week, our collection of Truthdig-flavored videos includes GOP senators grilling Condi on Bush’s troop escalation plan; a brutally ironic film reminding us that Saddam Hussein was a 40-year CIA asset; and “The Simpsons” on global warming.
No. 1: Senators Grill Condi on “Surge”
Republican senators smell so much BS in Condi’s defense of Bush’s troop escalation plan that MSNBC correspondent David Shuster practically hyperventilates in pointing it out.
No. 2: Keith Takes Bush to the Cleaners
Olbermann’s critique of Bush’s troop escalation plan climaxes with a devastating takedown of “The President Who Cried Wolf.”
No. 3: The Life and Death of a 40-Year CIA Asset
This quick, brutally ironic movie reminds us that America was for Saddam long before we were against him. What’s more, we were apparently for his invasion of Kuwait before we were against it.
No. 4: “Inconvenient” Simpsons
As usual, “The Simpsons” cuts to the quick of the global warming “debate.”
