Crocker Versus Klein

I’m not quite sure why there’s nothing about this on Swampland, but it seems that during his testimony yesterday, Ryan Crocker gave an “I do not recall saying that” when confronted with a quotation from a Time story in which Crocker told Joe Klein “The fall of the Maliki government, when it happens, might be a good thing.”

Klein says in response: “He said it. I’ve got it in my notes. He never denied it or asked for a correction after it appeared in print and was featured on Meet the Press. He may not remember it, but he said it.”
