Rumsfeld Heckled?


Is it really "heckling" someone when a former CIA analyst stands up and asks Rumsfeld tough questions?

According to the AP, it sure seems like it.

They also only include one question Ray McGovern he asked ("Why did you lie to get us into a war that caused these kind of casualties and was not necessary?").

They did not include the part where McGovern threw Rummy's own words from '03 when he said they knew where the WMD's were and he proceeded to lie and say he never said that.

How is that heckling?
That's when a guy goofs on a comedian for telling bad jokes (hmm, maybe there's something to it after all), not when someone asks tough questions.

Check out the War Room over at Salon and you can see all the questions and their reaction as well.

I saw the"highlights" of this one and was so happy to see people putting him on the spot better than the press has as of late.
