by Damozel | In an interview for Newsnight last week, the BBC's Kirstie Wark asked Scott McClellan if some of his current candor might perhaps have saved citizens of the US who were not shills for the Bush Administration a certain amount of war, devastating expense, corruption, outing of CIA agents, etc.? (Well, she didn't use exactly those words, but that was what I thinkshe meant.) McClellan said he didn't know, didn't understand, failed to put 2 and 2 together, and so forth. Further proof, I guess --- that is, if you believe him --- that neocons and those who support them just aren't that bright. How could McClellan, who was right on the scene, not know when even I knew? Even my 80-year old mother knew.
Anyway, he is now supposedly trying to make amends 'so that we don't make the same mistakes again.' Next on his to-do list: testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Valerie Plame leak.
