He thinks he can whore and pretend it's not whoring. On MSNBC's Up, he got into it with Amy Holmes as he insisted it's okay when Barack Obama wants war on Iraq.
David Corn has been, at best, an apologist for the CIA. He has the blood of Gary Webb on his hands and that blood will never wash off.
He's at the end of his career and he's really too creepy for TV.
But that the man who whined constantly about the Iraq War -- it was whining, he attacked A.N.S.W.E.R. and assorted others who were actually doing things to try to stop the Iraq War -- now wants to insist that a US mission is needed in Iraq?
Well, why is that David?
What made a US mission necessary?
Could it be the complete and utter failure of Barack Obama?
Maybe next time, when you know Nouri tortures, you don't insist he gets a second term as prime minister when he loses the election.
That's what Barack did in 2010.
Here's another thing you don't do, run through ambassadors.
Iraq needed stability.
An idiot like Chris Hill was never going to provide it.
But Chris is only one of four US Ambassadors to Iraq under Barack.
And the fourth is coming in during all this conflict. (Which is why Ambassador Stephen Beecroft hasn't already left for Egypt, which is where he's supposed to be currently having been confirmed as the ambassador to that country.)
David tries to work up 'moral' outrage to defend his position -- because there is no logical defense for it -- and only ends up coming off like the worst neocons of the '00s.
