Fox News pundits appear to find controversies of the Bush era less upsetting than those of the Obama administration. (3:45)

AND, WHEN THE BUSHADMINISTRATION

PLANTED A STORY ABOUT SADDAMHUSSEIN BUYING ALUMINUM TUBES IN

THE "NEW YORK TIMES" SO THAT THESAME DAY THE VICE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES, THE SECRETARYOF STATE AND THE NATIONAL

SECURITY ADVISOR COULD GO ON TVAND SAY THIS.

>> THERE'S A STORY IN THE "NEWYORK TIMES" THIS MORNING.

REPORTING JUST THIS MORNING.

>> HIGH QUALITY ALUMINUM TUBESTHAT ARE ONLY REALLY SUITED FOR

NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAMS.

>> Jon: THEY KNEW A YEAR INADVANCE THAT WHAT THEY WERE

SAYING ON THE SHOW THAT DAY WASNOT TRUE.

WHERE WAS THAT OUTRAGE?

>> WHERE IS THE APOLOGY FROM THEADMINISTRATION FOR THIS?

>> WHY SHOULD THERE BE ANAPOLOGY.

HINDSIGHT IS ALWAYS 20/20.

>> OF COURSE THEY'S GOING TO BEA DISSENTER. AND SAYING

ALUMINUM TUBES AREN'TNUCLEAR MATERIAL AND THEN

EIGHT OTHERS ARE SAYING IT IS.YOU MAKE A JUDGMENT.

>> IT'S A MATTER OF ASSUMPTION.

>> BUT NOT A QUESTION OF LYING.

>> Jon: NO, IT'S NOT AQUESTION OF LYING. IT'S A

STATEMENT OF LYING.

IT'S NOT AN ASSUMPTIONBECAUSE -- NO, LET ME EXPLAIN,

WHEN YOU ASSUME --[ APPLAUSE ]

-- ALL I KNOW IS WHEN YOU ASSUMEIT MAKES AN ASS OUT OF -- THEY

WERE LYING AND THEY KNEW THEYWERE LYING WHEN THEY SAID THAT.

BUT NOW BENGHAZI AND THE STATEDEPARTMENT AND THE C.I.A. HAD

INFORMATION THAT THINGS WEREDANGEROUS.

SHOULD HAVE HAD MOREPERFECTION. THAT IS

TRUE. MORE PROTECTION. I MEAN,IMAGINE THAT WOULD BE LIKE

SENDING SOLDIERS TO THE FRONTLINES IN A WAR OF CHOICE

WITHOUT PROPERLYUPARMORRED VEHICLES AND NOT ONLY

TAKING WAY TOO LONG TO FIXTHE PROBLEM BUT ANSWERING A

SOLDIER'S QUESTION ABOUT THATPROBLEM LIKE THIS.

>> AS YOU KNOW YOU GO TO WARWITH THE ARMY YOU HAVE AND NOT

THE ARMY YOU MIGHT WANT.

>> Jon: ZING.

I FORGOT JUST HOW MUCH CATCHPHRASES CAME OUT OF IRAQ.

I TELL YOU, THAT THING WAS THELIKE STEVE ERKEL OF WARS. SO,

IF YOU WERE UPSET ABOUT BENGHAZITHAT RUMSFELD THING MUST HAVE

REALLY MASSAGED YOUR O SPOT. YOUKNOW WHAT I MEAN?

YOUR OUTRAGE SPOT WHICH TOTALLYDOESN'T EXIST.

>> THEY WANT TO JUMP ON THEMILITARY, THEY WANT TO JUMP ON

DON RUMSFELD, THEY WANT TO JUMPON THE ADMINISTRATION.

IT WAS A PLANT, IT WAS A PLANTBY THE MEDIA.

>> Jon: YEAH, THAT'S THE REALOUTRAGE OF THAT RUMSFELD QUOTE

THE MEDIA BASTARDS. I MEAN,

WHY WOULD A GUY IN THEFRONTLINES IN IRAQ EVEN BE

CONCERNED ABOUT NOT HAVING APROPERLY UPARMORRED VEHICLE.

DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

WAKE UP SHEEP-PLE.

BUT, THAT'S JUST FOX NEWS. I'MSURE OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS

LIKE YOUR LINDSEY GRAHAMS THERE,SEEMINGLY DEDICATED THE REST OF

HIS CAREER TO KEEPING ALIVE THEMEMORY OF THE FOUR WE LOST IN

BENGHAZI WAS JUST AS OUTRAGEDAND EAGER AT THIS FLAGRANT

INABILITY TO PROVIDE FORAMERICANS IN HARM'S WAY.

>> LET'S GET THE PEOPLEWHAT THEY NEED. LET'S

PRESS ON AND LEARN FROM OURPAST MISTAKES.

I DON'T WANT TO PAY POLITICSWITH THIS.

>> Jon: I WOULD MUCH RATHER PLAYA NICE GAME OF PINNACLE. RATHER

THAN PLAY POLITICS,I WOULD RATHER PASS THIS

LOVELY SOUTHERN AFTERNOON BEFORECOLONEL BEUREGARD ARRIVES TO

ESCORT ME TO A BALL AT OURMANOR. I DO DECLARE.

IF I MAY SAY, YOUR HYPOCRITICALOUTRAGE AND SANCTAMONY ASIDE,

THE REASON IT'S HARD FOREVERYONE TO GET OUTRAGED

BY THIS TERRIBLY TRAGIC ANDULTIMATELY PREVENTABLE DISASTER

THAT WAS BENGHAZI, IS THATEVERYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY

HAS SEEN THIS MOVIE BEFORE ONLYTHAT MOVIE WAS ON AN IMAX.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
