God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

Who, what, huh? Levin must have lost his "talking points" flash cards before that "Hardball" interview. He's gonna be in trouble...Harry Reid will kick his ass. At least it was on MSNBC so it got the least amount of exposure possible for cable news.

From NewsMax.com:

Iraq war critic, Sen. Carl Levin made a startling admission Monday night - confessing that he believed the Bush administration was not wrong when they claimed Saddam Hussein posed a nuclear threat.

"Look, there was plenty of evidence that Saddam had nuclear weapons," Levin told MSNBC's "Hardball." "That is not in dispute. There is plenty of evidence of that."

Unfortunately, the White House's nuclear claims are in dispute - and by none other than Sen. Levin himself.

"When they said that the aluminum tubes that Saddam Hussein was seeking could only be used to make nuclear material, that was not true," the Michigan Democrat told the Senate the same day. "There is a pattern of exaggeration, distortion, misleading statements by the administration prior to the war."

We tend to think Levin's "plenty of evidence" statement is closer to the truth - especially given the fact that Saddam had 500-tons of uranium at his disposal and centrifuge parts and blueprints stored away for a rainy day.

In the meantime, it might be a good idea for Sen. Levin to get his story straight before excoriating the White House any further.
