Frank Gaffney Magical Mystery Tour Rolls Onward

I see Frank Gaffney is still as charmingly insane as ever. Here he is on Tucker Carlson's MSNBC show on Tuesday:

GAFFNEY: I think that it was necessary to go into Iraq. We now know that Saddam Hussein had hot production lines for biological and chemical agents.

CARLSON: You really believe that, that it was...

GAFFNEY: This is what the Iraq Survey Group determined, hot production lines, and plans to both ramp them up when sanctions came off and to put them into aerosol cans and perfume sprayers to send to the United States and Europe.

Does Tucker Carlson challenge Gaffney further on this? No. But in his defense, that would involve committing journalism, something his bosses at General Electric frown upon. And he has a pretty hefty mortgage to pay.

(Gaffney's appearance on Tucker was pointed out by a commenter at Glenn Greenwald's Salon blog.)

Since Frank's attempt to peddle his lies didn't fly so well on Colmes show, he had to find a more receptive audience. And they don't get more receptive than Tucker (with the possible exception of Hugh Hewitt).

Gaffney has always been a mad dog, it's well past time he was put down before he hurts anyone else
