Howard Coble questions Scott McClellan

The Congressman from NC's 6th District was questioning Scott McClellan during a committee meeting this morning. It won't come as any shock to most of you, but Coble made a few statements that really call into question his information gathering abilities. From the dailykos live blog of the meeting:

"I still believe there were WMDs and Hussein was a terrorist." Trying to justify rush to war.

Cobal - R-NC (8+ / 0-)

talks about how he still believes Iraq had WMD..still has doubts as to whether Scooter should have been prosecuted.

Sigh.

Old guy: "Should more have been done to [go after] Richard Armitage..what was your reaction?"

SM: Talks about how t would have been best for full disclosre as quickly about it. Notes that the WH promised to talk fully about this when it was behind us, and how they have refused to do so.

Old guy: Goes backk to "post-entry strategy"

Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right...

Woah, Leslie

That's almost hard to believe even for Coble.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

I know.

It is hard to believe. We have a Congressman in NC who is a bonafide member of the "Iraq-had-WMDs-and-Donald-Rumsfeld-still-knows-where-they-are" crowd? Feels like the twilight zone. Makes me anxious to get home and watch the C-Span video.

You mean "Cobal"

How powerless has he been that MSNBC can't even spell his name right. He really made a fool out of himself and NC with that rigmarole.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

I guess it's "Lie Day" as...

BraveNew Films called it today. lol.

At least McClellan spoke the truth when he said that the White House is still concealing info on this:

This matter continues to be investigated by Congress because of what the White House has chosen to conceal from the public," McClellan told the House Judiciary Committee. "Despite assurances that the administration would discuss the matter once the special counsel had completed his work, the White House has sought to avoid public scrutiny and accountability."
