Thanks but No Tanks

Bill Maher trashes the "think tanks" that got us into the Iraq war--but not for a few minutes. Watch what he says about their predictions, and Bill Krystal's new prediction that Iran will thank us for an invasion. Watch it to the end.

Update: Here's a transcript, courtesy of Crooks and Liars:

Maher: And finally, new rule in two parts: (A) You can't call yourself a think tank if all your ideas are stupid; and (B) If you're someone from one of these think tanks that dreamed up the Iraq War and who predicted that we'd be greeted as liberators, and that we wouldn't need a lot of troops, and that Iraqi oil would pay for the war, that the WMD's would be found, that the looting wasn't problematic, that the mission was accomplished, that the insurgency was in its last throes, that things would get better after the people voted, after the government was formed, after we got Saddam, after we got his kids, after we got Zarqawi, and that whole bloody mess wouldn't turn into a civil war, you have to stop making predictions.
