Josh Lederman just reported a lie on Alex Witt's MSNBC show

He said that former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s called the Biden administration’s response to this (the re-emergence of the Taliban) “IMBECILIC”.

When I heard it, it did not ring true to me that our ally would say that, so I looked up exactly what he said.

Here is what he really said:
In his online article, his first statement since Kabul fell to the Taliban last week, Mr Blair said the decision to withdraw was made "in obedience to an imbecilic political slogan about ending 'the forever wars'".


https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-58295384

So he thought the political slogan “forever wars” was imbecilic, not the Biden administration’s response.

Why is MSNBC doing this?

2. Ameliorates it a lot

Yeah I saw that this morning, was kind of disappointed to read/hear Tony Blair calling Joe Biden imbecilic, Blair a labourite.
Thanks for clearing it up, I feel a bit better with it. Ameliorates it a lot.
