Curveball Revealed on ”60 Minutes”


Even though we remain divided on the subject as to whether or not ”60 Minutes” actually jumped the shark with the brisk (and involuntary) exit of Don Hewitt, Bob Simon — he had us at ”The Ship Breakers of Bangladesh” — is a compelling reason to eschew a boozy lounge on a Sunday evening and watch the darn show. This Sunday — November 4th — is one of those nights. From CBSNews:

”60 Minutes has identified the man whose fabricated story of Iraqi biological weapons drove the U.S. argument for invading Iraq. It has also obtained video of ‘Curve Ball,’ as he was known in intelligence circles, and discovered he was not only a liar, but also a thief and a poor student instead of the chemical engineering whiz he claimed to be.”

It’s on … it’s on like Gray Poupon!
