Late last week, CNNís The Situation Room, starring Wolf Blitzer, reported on what Blitzer described as ďan ominous new warning coming in from the Pentagon: Iranís missiles are getting more accurate, apparently getting more deadly as well.Ē He then called on CNNís Pentagon correspondent, Chris Lawrence (ďWhat are you learning, Chris?Ē), and a truly brilliant line was unveiled:
CHRIS LAWRENCE, CNN PENTAGON CORRESPONDENT: Well, Wolf, Iranís missiles are getting more accurate, but they may not have to be because they are also getting more deadly. By that I mean theyíre developing a new payload system that spreads out the destruction over a wider area than a solid warhead. . . .Iíd like to repeat that: ďIran already has a missile that could reach the U.S.Ē!!!! (ďif it could it put on a ship and move it to within 600 miles of the American coastlineĒ). As Asíad AbuKhalil observed about these frightening Iranian missiles:†ĒThey can also reach the moon if they can put it on a rocket and get closer to the moon.Ē Indeed, Iím excited to announce that Iím writing today from within walking distance to the peak of Mount Everest! (if someone transports me and my laptop by jet and then helicopter to within 500 yards or so of the top of that mountain).
