Curveball Admits He Lied About Iraq's WMD's And... Crickets On Fox News

Reported by Ellen - February 16, 2011 -

A bombshell was dropped by The Guardian yesterday when it reported, "The defector who convinced the White House that Iraq had a secret biological weapons programme has admitted for the first time that he lied about his story, then watched in shock as it was used to justify the war." Can there be any doubt that there would be wall-to-wall coverage of this on Fox News if it had been President Barack Obama? But I heard nothing about it during three hours of prime time viewing last night (O'Reilly Factor, Hannity and On The Record) or during snatches of America Live.

Meanwhile, Fox & Friends, which I believe aired before the Guardian report, aired a two-part softball interview with Donald Rumsfeld in which they egged him on to criticize the Obama administration's handling of the Middle East and asked not a question about about those missing WMD's. It was Rumsfeld, himself, who brought up Abu Ghraib.
