More Starr

Is there a functioning brain in there anywhere?

It's a little hard to see how General Caldwell came up with "hype" per se, because it was a background military briefer over the weekend who indeed said that these shipments were tied to the highest levels of the Iranian government. Gen. Caldwell acknowledged that statement had been made, but what he tried to emphasize clearly was the message point of the day which was that no one is trying to attack the Iranian government. All of this is about force protection for US troops that are being killed by all of these weapons. We will see what President Bush has to say about all of this in a little while, but one can only expect, Tony, that he will agree with his Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

...Think Progress notes that Barbara Starr, ace reporter, is claiming things which even Tony Snow doesn't claim.
