“Mr. President. We always fight for our friends.”

Condi Rice to Mikhail Saakashvili during her last visit to Georgia.

Incredible, caught this video at Informed Comment. Fox News interviews a 12 year old girl and her aunt from south Ossetia who were there during the hostilities. The girl and the aunt blamed the Georgian government, and Georgia's president Mikhail Saakashvili who is McCain's, the Neo-cons, and Rice's darling, for civil casualties in Ossetia and for starting the war. The reporter on Fox could not take it. Watch the video...

Another Neo-con puppet bites the dust.
UPDATE: Thanks to Erdla, I was able to watch this video which shows Saakashvili not only biting the dust but also eating his tie. In this video there is at least some honest reporting on the conflict and it comes from the BBC.

This being live, they could not edit it; fortunately for the station, the commercial break managed to show these embarrassing witness to the door.

Great ladies; it must have taken some guts to tell the truth in a lie soaked environment.

At least that girl had a chance to get out and leave the area.

There are so many children who are killed over politics and war.

I want to know if Fox News paid her to say she was running from Georgian troops.

Wow Erdla, thanks. As you and I know this is rather an infantile gesture.

I simply couldn't believe my eyes - I sat there rubbing them before deciding to play the video again just to be sure.

Yes, very infantile indeed.

Off topic: We have a photostream up, Gorillas Guides' photostream. Even more off-topic could you leave a comment at our place - won't be published - as I have somehow managed to lose your email addy and would like to write.

Utterly Off Topic: I heard in a very roundabout way from Du who is apparently doing well.

My guess is the idiots at Fox News didn't even imagine that a 12-year-old girl and her aunt would have something political to say. I think they thought it would just be a human interest story--"bombs were falling, I was scared!" and that would be the end of it.
