Amid False Iraq War Story, NBC News Anchor ‘Lyin’”Brian Williams Cancelling Appearance with David Letterman

FUNNY WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE TRUTH IS MADE PUBLIC …

In the wake of the scandal and contravention that surrounds NBC News nightly news anchor Brian Williams, he has canceled his scheduled appearance with David Letterman. So, not only is Brian Willaims taking a hiadeous away from NBC News, he is also going into hiding from all public appearance. What’s the matter Lyin’ Brian Williams, you mean you are not going to appear on Letterman’s show and rehash the lie of your Iraq helicopter experience to make you look all big and important? You mean you are not going to interject yourself into the story as if you were ever in danger? Sorry, but in my eyes and to many, what you did in lying about what happened to have people think you were brave, is no different that someone wearing a military uniform and medals who have never served in the military just trying to get attention.

Brian Williams is backing out of his scheduled appearance on CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman,” citing the uncertainty about when he’ll be back at his anchor desk.

But until Sunday afternoon he was still scheduled to show up for his date with Letterman on Thursday.

The sudden change reflects the chaotic situation behind the scenes at NBC News and among Williams’ representatives.

On Sunday morning, a spokeswoman for the “Late Show” said there had been no change to the plans for Williams to appear on Letterman’s show.

 

WOW, this might be a first in all my years of blogging, never has Hot Air been more wrong and have I disagreed more … ‘Should we really be happy to see Brian Williams go’? The answer is “YES!!!” Sorry, when one steals honor from others, that is a big deal. When some one puts them-self falsely in the same danger as those who actually are put in danger, that is a big deal. And when it looks like Williams lied too about Hurricane Katrina, which was a concerted effort to make the GWB administration response look bad, that too is an issue. Williams was tasked with reporting the news, not making it up!

In the end, Williams’ lies seem to be more along the lines of your crazy, drunken Uncle Mel who shows up for holiday dinners and tells vastly expanded fishing tales. [...]

I’m not excusing what Williams did in any fashion. And if he falls, he clearly brought it on himself. I suppose all I’m saying here is that the mistakes Brian Williams made are more along the lines of self aggrandizement than some nefarious effort to hide or distort the actual news. It’s a human trait which more of us can likely relate to than other crimes, and I guess I’m just feeling a bit of sympathy for him this morning.

EXIT QUESTION: Over/Under … how many days does Brian Williams have left as Nightly News anchor at NBC News?

Gallup CEO Jim Clifton … The Official Obama 5.6% Unemployment Rate Amounts to a Big Lie … Tells CNBC He Might “Suddenly Disappear” for Telling the Truth About Unemployment Lie

Well, if Gallup CEO suddenly disappears we will know why …

Gallup CEO Jim Clifton says during an interview with CNBC that he is worried he might “suddenly disappear” and not make it home that evening if he disputed the accuracy of what the U.S. government is reporting as unemployed Americans. How sad is it that many would not put it past the Obama administration to actually retaliate against an American citizen for speaking the truth?

The CNBC interview came one day after Clifton had penned a gutsy opinion piece on Gallup’s web site, defiantly calling the government’s 5.6 percent unemployment figure “The Big Lie” in the article’s headline. His appearance on CNBC was apparently to walk back the “lie” part of the title and reframe the jobs data as just hopelessly deceptive.

Clifton stated the following on CNBC:

“I think that the number that comes out of BLS [Bureau of Labor Statistics] and the Department of Labor is very, very accurate. I need to make that very, very clear so that I don’t suddenly disappear. I need to make it home tonight.”

But after making that opening comment in case he suddenly goes missing, Jim Clifton went on to eviscerate the legitimacy of the cheerful spin given to the unemployment data by the Obama White House and liberal MSMS, stating to CNBC viewers that the percent of full time jobs in this country as a percent of the adult population “is the worst it’s been in 30 years.” Otherwise known as Obama’s Big Lie. Then again, hasn’t the entire Barack Obama presidency been one big lie and scandal after another?

Gallup CEO: 13 Million Jobs Lost – Only 3 Million Created Under Obama

Jim Clifton, Gallup CEO – The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment:

Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheer-leading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

Unemployment_The Big Lie1

Unemployment_The Big Lie2

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.

Embattled NBC News Anchor Brian Williams Taking Leave of Absence Amid Iraq Faux Helicopter Story … Is This the Beginning of the End?

 THE END MAY BE NEAR … NBC NEWS ANCHOR BRIAN WILLIAMS STEPPING ASIDE TEMPORARILY FROM NBC NIGHTLY NEWS …

Lying Brian Williams is said to be stepping aside from his anchor position at NBC’s Nightly News, but is this really just the beginning of the end? Williams’ fabricated and continually embellished Iraq helicopter story has gotten him in a world of trouble. even though he had been told to stop telling the faux news account by people who knew the story was made up and false, he did not. Williams wrote a memo to the NBC News staff, “As managing editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue.  Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us.”

UPON YOUR RETURN? Don’t count on it. It is beginning to sound like all Brian Williams does is make stuff up to a made for TV movie, rather than the truth of what actually happened. Helicopter hard landings in Iraq, taking enemy fire,  looking down the very tube of an RPG and even seeing floating bodies post Katrina, Williams may want to write Hollywood movie scripts, rather than report the news, because it would appear he had an issue reporting facts.

Brian Williams said Saturday that he will step aside as anchor of his nightly NBC News broadcast for “several days” as a result of the controversy generated by his comments about his reporting during the Iraq war and Hurricane Katrina.

With his troubles mounting by the day, Williams said he had decided to take himself off his signature newscast, “Nightly News with Brian Williams,” while NBC looks into statements he has made about his work in interviews stretching back more than a decade.

“As managing editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue,” Williams wrote in a memo to the NBC News staff that was made public by the network. “Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us.”

Williams, 55, has been under fire since Wednesday after he apologized to a group of Iraq war veterans for apparently exaggerating the danger he and an NBC News crew faced while covering the start of the war in 2003. Williams had described coming under rocket and gunfire while traveling with U.S. soldiers in a military helicopter that was damaged and forced to land. The soldiers disputed Williams’s account, saying his aircraft had not been fired upon, prompting Williams to recant the story.

From Ace of Spades comes the below VIDEO, Midnight Brian Williams Update: Williams Claimed to Have Looked Down the Very Tube of the RPG That Shot Down the Lead Copter in 2007. Williams may want to remember stories of credibility, not ones that make him sound like he is some brave soul that has escaped death. In the video below he goes on to spew more BS about all these people who died in the Super Dome following Hurricane Katrina. Hmm, I guess we can’t interview those folks to see if Williams is telling the truth, they are dead. Or so he says. Williams says, “We don’t have problems going to dangerous places, a lot of us consider that our jobs.” There lies the lie.

“It gets me to thinking, I’ve been very lucky the way my life has turned out, I’ve been very lucky to have survived a few things that I’ve been involved in, at a perception a few minutes ago, I was remembering something I tend to forget, the war with Hezballah in Israel, a few years back, where there were Katuyshka rockets passing just beneath the helicopter I was riding in. A few years before that, you go back to Iraq, and I looked down the tube of an RPG that had been fired at us and it hit the chopper in front of ours.”

Best article name, from the NY Times, ‘Anchors Aweigh’.

UPDATE I: Good grief, now there are questions whether Brian Williams reported stories following Hurricane Katrina truthfully. On Friday, NBC network officials said an internal review had been launched to vet Williams’s statements.  His comments about his work covering Hurricane Katrina in 2005 are also part of the review. It would appear Brian Williams was full of crap in his reporting on Katrina as well.

NBC News launched an internal investigation Friday into statements made by its lead anchor, Brian Williams, about his reporting from Iraq in 2003, as well as stories he told about his award-winning coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

The investigation, confirmed by NBC officials, represents a change in the network’s attitude toward its popular anchor only a day after senior managers appeared to have accepted his apology for misstating the facts surrounding his excursion on a military helicopter while reporting on the start of the Iraq war nearly 12 years ago.

Williams and NBC won a Peabody Award for reporting on Katrina’s impact on New Orleans and its surroundings. Williams had recently ascended to anchor, and he flew to report live on the Category 5 storm a few days before it struck Louisiana on Aug. 29, 2005. Williams reported daily from the city’s French Quarter and its convention center and Superdome, where residents sought shelter.

Tom Brokaw Wants Lying Brian Williams Fired from NBC

Can Lyin’ Brian survive?

As reported at the New York Post, the former NBC nightly news anchor who was at the helm when Brian Williams originally reported the fictions helicopter story taking fire, wants lying Brian Williams fired. Brian Williams was forced to apologize, but may have matters worse. According to accounts, Tom Brokaw and former NBC News President Steve Capus knew this was a false story for a long time and have been extremely uncomfortable with it. Obviously, Williams did not heed their warning and never stopped telling the lie as the fish tale got bigger and bigger. So let’s understand this, the media knew all along that Brian Williams lied about this story and did not do a damn thing? Is it any wonder why the MSM has zero credibility. Will NBC do anything to Williams, who knows? This is the same media company that has no issue hiring the likes of Al. Sharpton.

Just curious, how does some one sit at the NBC nightly news desk and have no credibility?

New York Post:

You know you’re in trouble when Tom Brokaw is out for your blood.

NBC’s most revered journalist is furious that Brian Williams is still in the anchor chair after he sheepishly admitted he hadn’t traveled on a helicopter hit by enemy fire.

“Brokaw wants Williams’ head on a platter,” an NBC source said. “He is making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report.”

According to the insider source, NBC brass hasn’t been talking to lower-level employees about the situation, leaving people in a panic.

NBC bosses don’t understand how serious this is. Nobody in a leadership position is talking to the troops. Nobody has addressed it,” the source said.

One longtime NBC employee who has worked with Williams on several occasions had a few dirty words to describe the celebrated anchor, calling him a “real pompous piece of s–t.”

“He’s an a–hole,” he fumed. “He’s not a journalist. He’s a reader.”

“Oh, the fireworks that are going off inside,” he said. “It’s embarrassing. He’s the face on NBC. He’s a liar.

“Everyone knew it.”

On Friday, Brokaw responded to reports that he wanted Williams axed.

UPDATE I: Tom Brokaw claims he did not call for Williams’ head.

Brokaw pushed back against a New York Post story claiming he wanted Williams fired, but notably didn’t offer his own statement of support.

“I have neither demanded nor suggested Brian be fired,” Brokaw said in an email to The Huffington Post. “His future is up to Brian and NBC News executive

Charles Krauthammer Blasts Obama’s 2015 Prayer Breakfast Remarks … President was ‘banal and offensive’

Watch Charles Krauthammer blasts Barack Hussein Obama for his 2015 Prayer Breakfast comments.

Krauthammer told Sean Hannity, “I was stunned that the president could say something so at once banal and offensive.”

Question: Why should we be stunned anymore as to what comes out of this president’s mouth? He is not doing so because he is stupid. Obama’s comments are calculated and purposeful. This is what he learned in the pews of Rev. Wrights black theology church, this is what he learned growing up as a child and this is what he learned from his radical, leftist, socialist mentors. This is the result of being a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ that taught Black liberation theology under the guidance of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, “God Damn America”.

Charles Krauthammer tonight slammed President Barack Obama’s remarks today at the National Prayer Breakfast, where Obama compared ISIS attacks to the violence committed by Christians in the Crusades.

“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ,” Obama said.

Krauthammer told Sean Hannity, “I was stunned that the president could say something so at once banal and offensive.”

Krauthammer noted that the speech came two days after a shocking act of barbarism, yet Obama’s message is to remember the Crusades. Krauthammer remarked that the story of the Crusades is over, and today’s story is of the overwhelming barbarism due to radical Islam.

“The present issue is Muslim radicalism and how to attack it,” he said.

VIDEO – Fox News

The Blaze:

Krauthammer was appalled by the comparison.

“I was stunned that the president could say something so at once banal and offensive,” he said.

The famed political analyst noted that the remarks came just days after the Islamic State released a video showing them burn a Jordanian pilot in a cage.

“The present issue is Muslim radicalism and how to attack it,” Krauthammer said.

NBC News Anchor Brian Williams Recants False War Iraq Story After Soldiers Protest … Apologizes for Misremembering Being in Helicopter that was “Forced down after being hit by an RPG”

Brian Williams, LIAR: THINGS YOU DON’T MISREMEMBER … YOUR WEDDING DAY, THE BIRTH OF A CHILD AND BEING SHOT DOWN IN IRAQ AFTER TAKING FIRE AND BEING HIT BY AN RPG …

NBC News anchor Brian Williams has egg on his face and lost much credibility after he was forced to recant his story that he’d been on a helicopter that was “forced down in Iraq after being hit by an RPG.” The incident was supposed to have happened on March 24, 2003. A Chinook helicopter was forced down by enemy fire. But one important fact was not true, Williams was not aboard. For years you have told this lie to make it appear like you were some brave individual who took fire in a time of war. I am sure Mr. Williams that it was great conversation at cocktail parties.

But servicemen who met Williams that day remember a completely different story.

They claim that Williams’ helicopter arrived an hour after a different Chinook helicopter was shot down by enemy fire. They confirm that NBC News’ helicopter was forced to land, but only because of an impending sandstorm.

Mike O’Keeffe, the door gunner on the downed helicopter, told military newspaper Stars and Stripes he remembered seeing Williams tell the false version of the story as far back in 2003. “Over the years it faded, and then to see it last week it was — I can’t believe he is still telling this false narrative.”

 

NBC Brian Williams Liar

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.

Williams repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters, a game to which Williams accompanied him. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry.

The admission came after crew members on the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook that was hit by two rockets and small arms fire told Stars and Stripes that the NBC anchor was nowhere near that aircraft or two other Chinooks flying in the formation that took fire. Williams arrived in the area about an hour later on another helicopter after the other three had made an emergency landing, the crew members said.

“I would not have chosen to make this mistake,” Williams said. “I don’t know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another.”

Williams told his Nightly News audience that the erroneous claim was part of a “bungled attempt” to thank soldiers who helped protect him in Iraq in 2003. “I made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago,” Williams said. “I want to apologize.”

The sick and pathetic aspect of this entire story is that individuals Command Sgt. Major Tim Terpak are heroes, not for fictitiously, saving the lives of liars like Brian Williams and the MSM who feel the need to interject themselves in war, when they were not. No one needs to embellish what men and women did and still do in our military who served in war wherever they may have served. Command Sgt. Major Tim Terpak is a hero, you Brian Williams are a zero. Idiots like Brian Williams do a disservice to our brave military.

WATCH BELOW THE BRIAN WILLIAMS LIE

UPDATE I: NBC News’ Brian Williams admits he wasn’t on aircraft in Iraq.

In a comment on NBC Nightly News’ Facebook page, under the video of Williams’ coverage of the tribute, Flight Engineer Lance Reynolds wrote “Sorry dude, I don’t remember you being on my aircraft. I do remember you walking up about an hour after we had landed to ask me what had happened. Then I remember you guys taking back off in a different flight of Chinooks from another unit and heading to Kuwait to report your ‘war story’ to the Nightly News. The whole time we were still stuck in Iraq trying to repair the aircraft and pulling our own Security.”

Reynolds told Stars and Stripes, “It was something personal for us that was kind of life-changing for me. I’ve know how lucky I was to survive it. It felt like a personal experience that someone else wanted to participate in and didn’t deserve to participate in.”

UPDATE II: It would appear that even in his apology, Brian Williams is Still lying.

Nationwide 2015 Super Bowl Commercial, Make Safe Happen – Maybe One of the Darkest, Inappropriate Super Bowl Commercials Ever (VIDEO)

MAYBE ALL PR REALLY ISN’T GOOD PR … Nationwide Insurance delivered a gut-punch to all those watching Super Bowl commercials.

Although this is an important message and something all parents need to be mindful of when it comes to their children, the Super Bowl was not the place to show this commercial. The powers that be at Nationwide decided on the the following to be their 2015 Super Bowl Commercial, ‘Make Safe Happen’ . YIKES! It maybe one of the darkest, inappropriate Super Bowl commercials ever. There is nothing like “DEATH” to break the mood of people trying to enjoy their Super Bowl Sunday. If those who thought GoDaddy’s spoof dog commercial was inappropriate, which was pulled, I could only imagine the uproar over this one.

A Nationwide commercial for the 2015 Super Bowl was called “dark and depressing” and drew a ton of negative online reaction Sunday night.

The spot started off in a whimsical way, with a boy riding his three-wheeler: ”I’ll never learn to ride a bike,” he said.

Daily Mail:

Nationwide Insurance has sparked outrage after showing a ‘dark’ and ‘depressing’ commercial about a young boy who died in a preventable accident during the Super Bowl XLIX.

In the advert, the cherub-faced child talks about all the milestones he will miss out on after dying in an accident, including learning to ride a bike, receiving ‘cooties’ from a girl and getting married.

In a voice brimming with hope and potential, he says: ‘I’ll never learn to ride a bike or get cooties. I’ll never learn to fly or travel the world with my best friend. And I won’t ever get married.’

Speaking directly to the camera, he finishes: ‘I couldn’t grow up. Because I died from an accident.’

UPDATE I: Nationwide defends Super Bowl ad about child deaths.

In a press statement, the Columbus, Ohio-based company defended its ad, stating its intent was to inform the public about the prevalence of preventable accidents.

“The sole purpose of this message was to start a conversation, not sell insurance. We want to build awareness of an issue that is near and dear to all of us — the safety and well-being of our children,” the statement said.

“We knew the ad would spur a variety of reactions. In fact, thousands of people visited MakeSafeHappen.com, a new website to help educate parents and caregivers with information and resources in an effort to make their homes safer and avoid a potential injury or death. Nationwide has been working with experts for more than 60 years to make homes safer.

“While some did not care for the ad, we hope it served to begin a dialogue to make safe happen for children everywhere.”

Nationwide Responds to Super Bowl Reaction

February 01, 2015

Columbus, Ohio – Preventable injuries around the home are the leading cause of childhood deaths in America. Most people don’t know that. Nationwide ran an ad during the Super Bowl that started a fierce conversation. The sole purpose of this message was to start a conversation, not sell insurance. We want to build awareness of an issue that is near and dear to all of us—the safety and well being of our children. We knew the ad would spur a variety of reactions. In fact, thousands of people visited MakeSafeHappen.com, a new website to help educate parents and caregivers with information and resources in an effort to make their homes safer and avoid a potential injury or death.

NBC Sports: Super Bowl XLIX Between Patriots and Seahawks Delivers Highest Overnight TV Rating Ever at 49.7

As they say in South Boston, Super Bowl XLIX gets highest Super Bowl TV rating, EVAH!!!

NBC Sports has reported that Super Bowl XLIX delivered the highest overnight TV rating in Super Bowl history. The 49.7 rating between the New England Patriots and defending champion Seattle Seahawks went down to the last seconds before a victor was determined. In the end, the Patriots won their 4th Super Bowl 28-24 in one of the most thrilling comebacks, nail-biting drives and bizarre endings ever.

It was reported on ESPN’s MiKe & Mike this morning that 78% of the TV’s that were on during the Super Bowl were tuned into the game. 89% of TV’s in Seattle were tuned into the Super Bowl.

NBC Sports

The early numbers are in, and the Super Bowl was a huge hit on TV.

NBC Sports PR has announced that the Patriots’ Super Bowl XLIX victory over the Seahawks delivered a 49.7 overnight rating, the highest in Super Bowl history.

Last year’s Super Bowl overnight rating was a 47.6 for the Seahawks’ blowout win over the Broncos. Closer games generally deliver higher ratings; the previous year’s nail-biter between the Ravens and 49ers got a 48.1 overnight rating, which was the record until now.

Super Bowl Ratings Hit All-Time High With Patriots’ Win on NBC.

In the metered-market overnights, the Patriots’ 28-24 victory earned a 49.7 household rating/72 share, eclipsing the previous high of 48.1/71 set two years ago when Baltimore defeated San Francisco on CBS; that game ended up averaging 108.41 million viewers in the nationals.

NBC’s Super Bowl XLIX overnight topped a 50 rating in each half hour from 8 p.m. ET to the game’s conclusion, peaking with a 52.9/73 from 10 to 10:15 p.m. ET.

Sen. John McCain Defends ‘Low-Life Scum’ Remark to Code Pink Protesters … If the Low-Life Scum Fits, Wear It

HEY TOOTS, IF THE SCUM FITS, WEAR IT!

Sen. John McCain appeared on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ Sunday morning and defended his comments calling the Code Pink protesters low-life scum. The CNN host asked McCain if that was the way he would handle it again. McCain responded with the following:

“These people were physically threatening. I am used to people popping up at these hearings and yelling and escorted out. That’s at least some version of free speech. These people rushed up. They were right next to Henry Kissinger, waving handcuffs at him. He’s a 91-year-old man with a broken shoulder who was willing to come down and testify before Congress, to give us the benefit of his many years of wisdom. Of course I was outraged and I am still outraged. Its one thing to stand up and protest, its something else to physically threaten an individual, particularly an individual who has served so much for his country, whether you agree with him or not.”

But the CNN host just could not let it go, she said, but you called them scum. As if that was the end of the world. Forget the fact that this out of control mob tried to physically threaten a 91 year old man, he concern was someone’s word. McCain responded by saying, “I think they are terrible people. Okay, I think they are terrible people that would do that to a 91 year old man with a broken shoulder, to physically threaten him. That is beyond any norm of behavior that I have ever observed. They literally surrounded him and were physically so in such close proximity to him that he was in danger of being harmed.”

He said the protesters — one of whom held handcuffs above Kissinger’s head — put him “in danger of being harmed.”

“These people were physically threatening Henry Kissinger,” McCain told CNN’s Dana Bash Sunday on “State of the Union” as he defended his comments.

“I’m used to people popping up at these hearings and yelling, and then they’re escorted out — that’s at least some version of free speech,” he said. “These people rushed up. They were right next to Henry Kissinger, waving handcuffs at him. He’s a 91-year-old man with a broken shoulder who was willing to come down and testify before Congress, to give us the benefit of his many years of wisdom. Of course I was outraged, and I’m still outraged.”
