This clip is a Dick Cheney classic.
According to Cheney, he doesn't know anything about anything. He doesn't know who Ambassador Joseph Wilson is. He doesn't know who the CIA is. He must not know what a newspaper is either.
This is from the September 14, 2003 program of
Meet The Press, hosted by Tim Russert.
(Link goes to a
complete very incomplete transcript.)
Russert: "Were you briefed on his (Joseph Wilson's) findings of February-March of 2002?"
Cheney: "No. I don't know Joe Wilson. I've never met Joe Wilson...Joe Wilson? I don't know who sent Joe Wilson. He never submitted a report that I ever saw when he came back...I don't know Mr. Wilson. I probably shouldn't judge him...I have no idea who hired him."
Tim Russert: "The CIA did."
Cheney: "Yeah but who are 'the CIA?' I don't know."
