Lyng Through His Teeth

A Democrat, William Delahunt, made the following comments-

Delahunt asked repeatedly whether the topic of waterboarding, a controversial interrogation technique that simulates drowning, ever came up.

Addington replied that he could not discuss that because “al Qaeda may watch C-SPAN.”

“Right,” Delahunt responded. “Well, I’m sure they are watching, and I’m glad they finally have the chance to see you, Mr. Addington.”

“Yeah, I’m sure you’re pleased,” Addington shot back.

On the Mark Levin show he tried to weasel out of the situation by claiming that he meant to say that he was glad to see Mr Addington, not that Al Qaeda could see him.

Lamest. Excuse. Ever.

I find it hard to believe that an elected member of Congress has publicly stated that he's glad that Al Qaeda, an organisation America is at war with, are able to identify the Vice-President's chief of staff. It's disgusting and a disgrace.

I don't know what's worse- that he said it or that it will most likely be condoned by those with the power to discipline him over these malicious words.
