Heh, Hugh's intro was pretty funny. Scott Johnson, Lileks and the Elder joining Mitch Berg in the studio.

They lead with a clip from Hardball about how the August 6th PDB had no new information, at least, no new information that was correct.

Next Kristen Breitweiser's appearance also on Matthews's show. Good point by the Elder than the 9-11 widows are not qualified to talk about security procedures.

Steven Hayward on "The Real Jimmy Carter". Carter is the transition figure between the old Democrats and the modern Democrats. Rates Carter as the worst foreign policy president and perhaps the worst president overall. Comments that Carter is much worse as an ex-president than people think. Okay on Habitat for Humanity, but awful as a foreign policy envoy. Lileks asks about Iran. Could the shah have been saved--no. Could a better regime have been put in place--perhaps. Hayward says that the Ayatollah was considered as possibly another Gandhi. Andrew Young said he might be considered a saint. Carter tried to undermine the first Persian Gulf War. Got his Nobel Peace Prize as a slap against George W. Bush (it was even described that way at the time).

The Gorelick memo gets prominent mention in the next segment (missed the beginning due to a phone call). They point out that it's getting buried, except for the New York Times. Lileks mentions the movie Three Days of the Condor, in which the murder of a bunch of people was all a plot by the CIA. This shows how pervasive the anti-CIA attitude was in the late 1970s.

Claudia Rosette appearance. Oil for food program discussed (hope Roger Simon is listening). The UN is very secretive, and thus this story is not getting out. Should we turn over Iraq to the UN? Also is the UN structure correct? One country one vote sounds democratic, but the regimes with a vote are not themselves democratic. China/Syria/Libya. Northern Iraq is doing better than the South because Saddam didn't have the power in the North he did elsewhere. Lileks: Where did the money go? Claudia: Not known, we should try to find out.

Callers: Pearl Harbor/9-11 parallel. Believes in conspiracy. Talks about the John Toland book. Fred in Gardenia on Gorelick. Should we ask her to apologize because her memo was responsible. Did Clinton apologize for OKC?

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
