LIONEL PODCAST: When Politicians Lie People Die.

So what! Big deal. He lied, fibbed, whatever. Fine. Big deal! Stars and Stripes reported “NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.” Hillary Clinton “misspoke” about being targeted by sniper fire in Bosnia. So what! Are you suggesting that this surprises you? Tell me you’re not seriously saying that. Look, BW handled this miserably. True, he should have never said this. Fine. But with all of the lies that we’re immersed in daily and continuously by the government, this little whopper is de minimis to say the least. So what. He’s not an elected official. Not POTUS. No one died over his lies and misrepresentation. It was malignant puffery, wild exaggeration, so what. It’s Thursday, by tomorrow night, it’ll be over. America has the attention span of a gnat.

His lies never killed anyone. He should have been more up front and not alleged “mistake.” This wasn’t an oops moment. No slip of the tongue. It was contrived and manufactured and repeated and so what! Brian Williams never lied about

  • the role of Iraq and Afghanistan in 9/11
  • there being no doubt that Saddam Hussein has WMDs
  • the safety of GMOs
  • yellowcake from Niger
  • Benghazi
  • “[n]obody in our government, at least, and I don’t think the prior government, could envision flying airplanes into buildings on such a massive scale.”
  • having “ha(d) no hard evidence connecting” 9/11 to bin Laden as the FBI admitted
  • Americans on hit lists
  • vaccination research and data
  • actual unemployment numbers

  • American military torturing “enemy combatants”
  • Saudi Arabia’s complicity in 9/11
  • 9/11 first responders being told it was safe to enter the area that was a witches brew of deadly contamination
  • promising to stop using signing statements
  • the militarization of the police via 1033 programs
  • Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch
  • those responsible for the assassination of JFK
  • the Gulf of Tonkin incident

  • NSA spying and mass surveillance

  • personally witnessing Iraqi soldiers invade Kuwaiti hospitals and taking newborns out of their incubators and throwing them onto the cold floor to freeze to death.

Your anger is misdirected. Stop the contrived Sturm und Drang, gnashing of teeth. No one died. It’s the presstitute media. Animate teleprompters. Be angry over the complicity of media as administration apparatchiks who bleat and howl and clap like barking seals over wars that kill brave American men and women. Leave Brian Williams alone.
