I have just watched all 3 parts of this interview.
It doesn't change the opinion I already had about these matters, it just corroborates it.
One other point is clear, though. Col. Wilkerson is a typical - and skilled - diplomat / politician who evades accepting resposibility for his own failures.
He says, in effect, "If 15 voices agree with what my boss wants me to believe, and there is only 1 voice of dissent, of course I'll go with those 15 voices and not bother to investigate that 1 voice of dissent." For someone involved in Intelligence at the highest level, given FIVE DAYS to prepare a policy that would decide his country's going to war or not - and cost more than 4000 lives ON HIS OWN SIDE - even if we discount the more than 1 million Iraqi lives estimated to have been lost as a direct result of this tactical "blunder", to make the claim that he "didn't have the time" to investigate a dissenting voice [and let's remember that this dissenting voice was that of another Intelligence EXPERT] is a case of CRIMINAL NEGLECT AND INCOMPETENCE!
Col. Wilkerson is no hero. To criticise his bosses and the infrastructure that he was working for YEARS after the fact - and at a time when PUBLIC OPINION was already beginning to swing against those decisions - is no great act of valour OR integrity.
What's the good of whistle-blowing long after the criminals have made their escape?
Interesting viewing, nonetheless...
