Katie Couric Comes Clean
Katie Couric makes up for disappointing her fans while in Iraq…
Today’s Examiner report on a speech by CBS “Evening News” anchor Katie Couric, of course, follows the admission earlier this week that The New York Times gives discounts to antiwar liberal democratic groups.
Katie spouted off about every liberal talking point in the book during her speech at the National Press Club Tuesday evening:
“Everyone in this room would agree that people in this country were misled in terms of the rationale of this war,” said Couric, adding that it is “pretty much accepted” that the war in Iraq was a mistake.
“I’ve never understood why [invading Iraq] was so high on the administration’s agenda when terrorism was going on in Afghanistan and Pakistan and that [Iraq] had no true connection with al Qaeda.”
Further, Couric said the Bush administration botched the war effort, calling it “accepted truths” that it erred by“disbanding the Iraq military, and leaving 100,000 Sunni men feeling marginalized and angry…[and] whether there were enough boots on the ground, the feeling that we’d be welcomed as liberators and didn’t need to focus as much on security.” She added “I’d feel totally comfortable saying any of that at some point, if required, on television.”
“…The whole culture of wearing flags on our lapel and saying ‘we’ when referring to the United States and, even the ‘shock and awe’ of the initial stages, it was just too jubilant and just a little uncomfortable. And I remember feeling, when I was anchoring the ‘Today’ show, this inevitable march towards war and kind of feeling like, ‘Will anybody put the brakes on this?’ And is this really being properly challenged by the right people? And I think, at the time, anyone who questioned the administration was considered unpatriotic and it was a very difficult position to be in.”
Here’s another look at Katie’s Botched War effort:
Only a liberal could make this war look like a failure at the expense of the nation.
It’s just too bad “everyone in this room would agree” that the liberals control the American media.

UPDATE: As if the ugly mainstream media could not get more twisted- they are now playing gotcha games with dead soldiers.
