Russert's Bizarre Interview with Peter Pace

Daou Report: "On Meet the Press, Tim Russert gingerly questions Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Peter Pace about the situation in Iraq. Lo and behold, we discover that things are going great and that the reason two-thirds of Americans think it's a mess is because the press simply isn't reporting all the wonderful things happening there. I'm not sure which aspect of this interview is more bizarre: Pace's outlandish claims (he thinks William F. Buckley should wander the streets of Baghdad) or Russert's demeanor."

Media Matters: "On the March 5 broadcast of NBC's Meet the Press, host Tim Russert failed to challenge several misleading claims made by Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in support of his assertion that the Iraq war is "going very, very well."

Actually the real truth is a lot of both. Our military is operating in a similar way that it did in Vietnam, i.e., not enough troops, and piss poor leadership. The news shows, i.e., CNN, Fox, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, etc only show the things that get ratings, regardless if they are true or not. In other words they show Blood and Guts and nothing else.

Tim Russert's recent homebound trip from Italy, sugests only one causative event to me: pulmonary embolism as a result of DVT. Should autopsy prove this to be the case, it will draw attention to working the leg muscle-pump during long distance flights. I recently lost a 60 year old female confidant a day after a flight from London Heathrow to MMIA in Lagos, Nigeria...Agbalagba (Dr Buki Morgam)
