MSNBC's Rachel Maddow slammed her colleagues in the media on Tuesday for inviting Iraq War hawks to discuss the current turmoil in the troubled state.
"It is very frustrating to see that this is the way we handle debates about foreign policy in this country," she said on her show. "We take people who were so provably, terribly wrong and bring them back and treat them like experts on the very subject they were wrong about. It is maddening."
Familiar faces from c. 2003 have been gracing American television screens of late, including former Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, among others. Judith Miller, the disgraced New York Times reporter, has also resurfaced on Fox News.
Maddow's advice to the media: "Hey Sunday shows! Hey op-ed pages! Hey cable news! Hey everybody! We know you are tempted to keep booking these yahoos on these subjects, but if you keep turning to the people who were famously wrong about Iraq to ask them about to do about Iraq, you at least will be laughed at. And you will be embarrassed that you did this. And you will eventually have to apologize or at least explain yourself for why you thought Bill Kristol should be explaining what to do now. We can see what you're doing, and it's funny, but not in a good way."
