Helen Thomas – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_Thomas

Nice to see I’m not the first to thumbs-up Helen Thomas, veteran White House Correspondant and old-school political journalist. She’s getting on in years, but between books and speeches, seems to be taking the next generation to task for their toothlessness. Let’s hope they learn from it.

On March 21, 2006, Thomas was called upon directly by President Bush for the first time in three years. Thomas asked Bush about Iraq:

“I’d like to ask you, Mr. President, your decision to invade Iraq has caused the deaths of thousands of Americans and Iraqis, wounds of Americans and Iraqis for a lifetime. Every reason given, publicly at least, has turned out not to be true. My question is: Why did you really want to go to war? From the moment you stepped into the White House, from your Cabinet — your Cabinet officers, intelligence people, and so forth — what was your real reason? You have said it wasn’t oil — quest for oil, it hasn’t been Israel, or anything else. What was it?
