What about Bremer?

Matt Kelley of the APwrites:

A protester briefly disrupted Bremer's National Press Club speech.

"Bremer, you're a liar!" the man shouted before being hustled out of the room by a security guard.

"If he tried that in Iraq three months ago, he'd now be dead," Bremer said.

The point being? That in the US you can tell the truth? (Except for the odd smear campaign, of course).

All kidding aside, though—was the protester right? If he said "Bremer, you're a liar!" he would have been right, but is the same true of Bremer? Readers?
