Democratic Sen. to Ex-Bush Spox Ari Fleischer: ‘Maybe You Aren’t the Best Messenger’ to Say Iran Lied About WMDs
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a big speech today saying Iran has lied and that Israel has proof of “conclusive proof of the secret nuclear weapons program that Iran has been hiding for years from the international community.”
Bloomberg News’ Jennifer Jacobs reports this afternoon that a U.S. official confirmed Israel shared those Iranian files and “verified the material as authentic.”
Ari Fleischer praised Netanyahu’s speech and said it’s beyond clear Iran is lying:
This is one powerful presentation by @netanyahu.
Anyone who doesn’t think Iran was lying and still is lying doesn’t know Iran.

Senator Brian Schatz (D- HI), presumably referring to Fleischer’s tenure as George W. Bush/s press secretary in the run-up to the Iraq War, asked this in response:
Maybe you aren’t the best messenger for this? https://t.co/C7etd42ore
