Armitage speaks - who will listen?

By Libby

Crooks and Liars finds the video clip of the day.

What an amazingly refreshing and grown up admission from a former member of the Bush Administration. When shown a clip of Valerie Plame Wilson castigating him for revealing her identity to Robert Novak by Wolf Blitzer, former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage has really only one thing to say: She’s right.

If we could bottle that honesty and force feed it to Beltway bozos and their cheerleaders who are currently running our ship of state aground, we wouldn't be in this mess today. Even more startling is Armitage's take on the so-called war on terror. Here's the money quote.

The threat they pose to us is whether we in response to their activities will actually do harm to ourselves by changing our way of life, by suspending writs of habeas corpus and by engaging in such activities as torture.

Amen. Read the rest and watch the video at the link.
