The best way to catch “bad guys” in covert operations is of course to go on TV and announce everything you know about them, and what you’re planning to do to catch them.
Today this is the anniversary of the D -Day invasion. Folks in the public, and press, might think about how successful that operation would have been had Ike gone on radio to announce all the plans say, oh, six weeks before the operation. Yep, pointing out the “lie” that all those cardboard tanks and military equipment were fake to the German high command would have made things run so much better.
Of course comparing the two Rice stories, the WMDs and “mushroom shaped cloud”, vs the “mob reacting to a movie” isn’t well , comparable. The outright lies, to Congress to blackmail them, and the public to con them, regarding those non-existent WMDs was a lie that got thousands killed. Susan Rice was reading text to divert attention from the search for real culprits to an event that had already happened with four deaths.
“Right wing stupid” is the order of the day in Payne’s world.
