Scottie McClellan: Bush so did NOT break that broken lamp
QUESTION: Thanks. Is it true that the President slapped Karl Rove upside the head a couple of years ago over the CIA leak?
SCOTT McCLELLAN: Are you referring to, what, a New York Daily News report? Two things: One, we’re not commenting on an ongoing investigation; two, and I would challenge the overall accuracy of that news account.
QUESTION: That’s a comment.
QUESTION: Which part of it?
QUESTION: Yes, that is.
QUESTION: Which facts —
SCOTT McCLELLAN: No, I’m just saying — no, I’m just trying to help you all.
QUESTION: So what facts are you challenging?
SCOTT McCLELLAN: Again, I’m not going to comment on an ongoing investigation.
QUESTION: You can’t say you’re challenging the facts and then not say which ones you’re challenging.
SCOTT McCLELLAN: Yes, I can. I just did. (Laughter.)
It goes on and on like that.
Scottie is just as nonsensical and self-serving concerning Iraq, only now it’s just tragic and sad:
Q Why were 18 children killed?
MR. McCLELLAN: Our military goes out of the way not to target innocent civilians.
Q I’m not saying they were targeted —
MR. McCLELLAN: Our military goes out of the way to target the enemy, and to —
Q Why did they say 18 children?
MR. McCLELLAN: — bring to justice the terrorists and those who are seeking to prevent democracy from taking hold, through violent means, to justice. And that’s what our military does. And they do —
Q Seventy people were killed by an air strike.
MR. McCLELLAN: Helen, please let me respond, because I think it’s important to point this out when you’re bringing up a question like this. We fully support our men and women in uniform. They’re doing an outstanding job to defend our freedoms and to help the Iraqi people move forward on a free —
Q I’m not saying — I’m saying why did they kill 70 people?
MR. McCLELLAN: — to move forward on a free and peaceful future…
Reminds me a lot of Clinton’s Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on 60 Minutes, discussing the horrific impact of a decade of U.S. sanctions on Iraq:
Lesley Stahl: We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?
Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price — we think the price is worth it.
