According to MSNBC, the Bush White House is calling Scott McClellan a “traitor” for his new book:
Oâ€™DONNEL: Quickly Kevin, a White House staffer said to you on background â€” they used the word â€œtraitorâ€?
CORKE: â€œTraitor.â€ Absolutely. And I raised my eyebrows, and he said, It is what it is.
In every country on earth, when the governing junta accuses someone of “treason,” they are actually accusing them of “telling the truth.” So I like to keep track of examples of this. For instance, Hussein Kamel (Iraq), Mohammad al-Khilewi (Saudi Arabia), Anthoy Zinni (United States) and Mordechai Vanunu (Israel) all turned out to be traitors in the standard sense. Details are here. Now McClellan has joined their treasonous company.
