More on Elliot Abrams’ Censorship of Leverett
The Last Hurrah has imagined the content of Flynt Leverett’s squashed opinion piece on Iran, based on his past pronouncements on the matter.
Thanks to Daily Kos for taking up the issue of the quashed Leverett memo/petition and my call for people to write their representatives and senators demanding that Elliot Abrams leave the National Security Council.
Steve Clemons points out that White House spokesman Tony Snow replied first that he knew nothing about the issue and then that the White House had not intervened. Clemons also gives a link to Flynt’s remarks on Monday.
The Financial Times says that Flynt is not the only former official forbidden by the CIA/ White House from saying things already in the public record.
