My friend over on Rachel Maddow’s show, Mike Yarvitz, produced these two segments last night with Phillip Zelikow, Condi’s former deputy at the State Dept.   Zelikow is the guy Rice sent over to Iraq to see what was going on after the invasion (Bob Woodward details this in State of Denial).  Zelikow, outraged by the mess he saw in Iraq came back to Washington and blew the whistle. He says he was basically silenced by Cheney and Rumsfeld.

Zelikow also says he saw the torture memos back in 2005 and wrote his own memos slamming the legal analysis from inside the DOJ. He distributed his own memo, but when the Bush WH read it, they tried to collect all the copies that were floating around and destroy them. Great segment…Nice job Yarvitz! And here’s a link to Part 2
