Woof Woof
I've always loved Helen Thomas.

She's been holding Bush accountable since the beginning when they moved her to the back of the press room bus because of her "pointed" questions.

Well, tonight she was interviewed by Leslie "Wolf" Blitzer (yes, that's his name) wherein he she took wolfie to the woodshed:
For some strange reason Leslie [Wolf] asked Helen why she thought the US invaded Iraq. Helen gestured toward Les (is our boy Les a neocon?) and said, (paraphrase)

"Well because of the neocons at the Project for a New American Century (PNAC). Their plan was to invade first Iraq, then Syria, then Iran."

Les interrupted with some irrelevancy about all the 9/11 dead, and Helen leaned toward him and said,

"They had nothing to do with each other...."

Then Helen said to Leslie,

"Come home, you'll be welcomed."

But the best part was as she continued,

"You and I were at the WH together and you used to ask tough questions. You asked Clinton why he didn't resign."

Les was perturbed, cut her off and said,"That was a different time" and went to commercial.
You go Helen!
