A couple of days back, there was a Congressional hearing in which William Delahunt, D-MA (MA-10), interrogated David Addington, Chief of Staff and Former Counsel to Vice President Dick Cheney, on the subject of waterboarding by the CIA of Al Qaeda POW's. At some point during the hearing, Mr. Addington said that he could not go into details since "Al Qaeda may watch this thing."

This was Congressman William Delahunt's reply:

"Right, well..., I'm sure they are watching and I... I'm glad they... finally have a chance to... to see you, Mr. Addington."

A leftist would not be a leftist if he wasn't lying. Faced with the beginning of the outrage following his scandalous remark - I HOPE it's just the beginning - Delahunt's defense was:

Delahunt said he was just trying to express that he was glad to see Addington. Delahunt said he recalls saying "I," not "they," during the testimony – though the video, broadcast on C-SPAN, shows he was talking about Al Qaeda.

Right. He claims now that he was just saying that HE (Delahunt) was glad to see Addington. Hey, why don't you judge for yourself? Closely watch the following video, broadcast on C-SPAN. It comes near the end:

You Big, Fat, F*cking LIAR. You said you were glad that THEY, Al-Qaeda, had a chance to see Addington. Fox reports that Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said that Delahunt was "inciting Al Qaeda to violence," and suggested Delahunt should guard Addington’s family "until the war on terror is over." Delahunt's response was that King has "a good sense of humor" but "under no circumstances" was he implying during the hearing that Al Qaeda may target Addington. Oh yeah a$$hole? Well, watch that video again - especially the smirk on that traitor's visage when he faces Cheney's Chief of Staff with the prospect of an AQ visit. The very last sentence by Mr. Addington is "I'm sure you're pleased." Addington knew very well what Delahunt was implying.

Thanks a lot to CDR Salamander and RedState for blowing this thing wide open. RedState:

"If you do not call your Congressman today and demand the House of Representatives, at the very *least*, censure Congressman Delahunt, well damn us all. We have no right to carry on our fight. The number is 202-224-3121 and Congressman Delahunt's email address is

And some intrepid reporter should ask Mr. Obama what he thinks of this. After all, Mr. Delahunt was one of Mr. Obama's early supporters and is now an Obama superdelegate. Of course, you can ask Barack Obama yourself at (866) 675-2008.

When you call your Congressman, you should make sure he knows an apology from Mr. Delahunt will not suffice. Delahunt clearly is lying about and denying his statement. "I'm sorry" would just be more of the same."

Here's another Delahunt pic, taken at the occasion of a "deal" he closed with Chavez in November 2005 to "provide the poor in Massachusetts with cheap heating oil." The guy certainly knows how to choose his friends.

You just remember. William Delahunt is an Obama Superdelegate.
