Quite an interesting interview to watch. Although too bad they didn't talk about how the original draft stated that the Neocons needed a Helpful Pearl Harbour for their goals.

Its a clip from the Colbert Report.

Its not an interview, its a comedy peice.

so what is your personal opinion of what a interview should be?

Fox news interviews. CNN? White house press conferences?

Just because Colbert/Stewart are comical in their approach to news, it shouldnt change the fact they are interviewers, and ask tougher questions than anyone at FOX or CNN, and are more unbiased than most 'mainsteam' news anchors

Mr. Crowley,

The document you refer to, "Rebuilding America's Defenses," is available for download in .pdf format at www.newamericancentury.org.... In it, you will find that the "Pearl Harbor" reference you mention is not in the least the "sinister" prediction that so many whackos on the web proclaim it to be.

This Pearl Harbor reference, which you seem to be implying was only in the "original draft," regards the time frame involved in (imagine, an on-topic topic!) rebuilding America's defenses. The phrase comes up in part of the paper where the PNC concedes that a complete overhaul of the defense structure could take decades, absent a pearl Harbor-like event, which event resulted in (there it is again) a rebuilding of America's defenses on a massive scale and in an unprecedented timeframe.

IOW, this completely innocent remark has absolutely nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks. The attacks of 9/11 have not resulted in a complete and speedy overhaul of our defensive capabilities, structure and weaponry, which was the subject of (believe it or not) "Rebuilding America's Defenses."

Typically, and I could be wrong, it is (to say the least) useful for a person to actually read a document before attempting criticism of that document.

How about not part of a fictional entertainment show??

Fox news interviews. CNN? White house press conferences?
yes that's right, if I don't accept the daily show and colbert report as a source for news, I must be a 'sheep' who only listens to official government sources or something.



Just because Colbert/Stewart are comical in their approach to news,

No. They are a comedy show that makes hysterical and topical jokes.

The Daily Show is not a news show.



it shouldnt change the fact they are interviewers, and ask tougher questions than anyone at FOX or CNN

What tough questions did Colbert ask? He talked about PNAS, and made some jokes about it. He didn't make any hard hitting questions. its not a hard hitting news show, its a comedy show, it softballs questions to people on the show.
