Must-See Hardball Segment On Rove Case

While Hardball host Chris Matthews has made me angry at times over his positioning during interviews, I have found him to be, for the most part, fair in his presentation of the news. (He may have been the only journalist I saw truly hammer John O'Neill and the Swift Boat Liars during the 2004 presidential campaign.)

Last night was a good one and Crooks and Liars has an outstanding clip of Matthews, with a report from David Shuster, giving a very comprehensive breakdown of the lies of the Bush administration leading to the Iraq war and the White House outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame.

For any of your friends or relatives who have been confused by what it is that Karl Rove and Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff, Scooter Libby, did in revealing Plame's identity – and why – this 5 minute, 35 second clip has it all... Bush lying, Cheney deceiving and the whole ugly story behind the attempt to smear Ambassador Joe Wilson, who exposed the administration's biggest pre-war lie.

Please take a look.
