I cannot speak to the veracity or the lineage of this report, but if true it is one of those speeches that must be read……..
It is somewhat long, but in my view important. And you won’t read about this or any of the related major issues in our “press” due to its fascination with Tailgunner Joe Wilson.
He’s right, it is important. It is important.even if somebody felt a need to invent this speech for a non-existent Vladislav Surkov.
In a similar vein see this post at Captain’s Quarters:
