Note to CBS: The election is over

CBS has posted a deeply dishonest account of David Martin’s interview with outgoing Marine Corps Commandant Michael Hagee that has been picked up by Drudge. According to CBS and Drudge, Hagee states that there was “No Plan for Post-Saddam Iraq.” Unfortunately, you have to watch the video of the interview that is posted with the story to see that Hagee says nothing of the kind. That’s David Martin doing the testifying, doing his damndest to put words in Hagee’s mouth through repetitive leading questions. Martin doesn’t succeed, but he has nevertheless written the story he set out to get. Disgusting. (Thanks to reader P. Nelson.)
