Tim Russert Revises History

September 20, 2006 at 11:27 am | Posted in Revising History | Leave a comment

I was just sitting eating my breakfast, watching NBC’s Today show….just moments ago. They had Tim Russert on the show to give “analysis” of the two speeches yesterday by Ahmadinejad and Bush at the UN. Russert said something that I think most Americans would agree with, but is false. In describing Iran, he said that Iran was trying to overtake Iraq in the 80s. What?!?!?! Maybe I’m one of few Americans who doesn’t have a short attention span, but I am quite sure that it was actually Iraq that tried to overtake Iran back in the 80s, and found Iran to be so formidable that Iraq had to resort to chemical weapons to keep the hundreds of thousands of Iranians at bay. It was Saddam that was the aggressor. It was Saddam that tried to invade Iran and take over Iran, not the other way around. Boy, the revision of history in America is intolerable. What are you doing, Mr. Russert?

I’ll get a transcript of this later. This was just on five minutes ago.
