Well, a lot of people did say that Iraq would be another Vietnam. And they are the same, other than being, you know, completely different.

This clip is from Wednesday’s West Coast feed of the NBC Nightly News; Mitchell is talking about the State Dept’s mini-rebellion against assignments to Iraq. Iraq. Not Vietnam. Iraq.
Thanks to John Ziegler for catching it and sending it along.
