Romney’s Defense

Mitt Romney’s staff attempts to defend the governor’s repeated claim that there were no inspectors in Iraq. Ezra Klein’s unconvinced: “Because Saddam did not welcome them with joy in his heart and transparency on his lips, they weren’t actually there. We then got into an argument over whether we should trust Dick Cheney’s judgment on the access offered to the IAEA inspectors or the IAEA inspectors’ judgment on their own access. All in all, a fruitful exchange.”
