Cronkite: Karl Rove "probably set up bin Laden to this thing"

(Hat tip: PoliPundit)

Walter Cronkite is a sad, sad man. Cronkite surmises that Karl Rove set up the whole tape to distract from al-Qaqaa.

Here's a transcript of his appearance on Larry King.

KING: OK, Walter. What do you make of this?

CRONKITE: Well, I make it out to be initially the reaction that it's a threat to us, that unless we make peace with him, in a sense, we can expect further attacks. He did not say that precisely, but it sounds like that when he says...

KING: The warning.

CRONKITE: What we just heard. So now the question is basically right now, how will this affect the election? And I have a feeling that it could tilt the election a bit. In fact, I'm a little inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing. The advantage to the Republican side is to get rid of, as a principal subject of the campaigns right now, get rid of the whole problem of the al Qaqaa explosive dump. Right now, that, the last couple of days, has, I think, upset the Republican campaign.

Larry King introduces Cronkite as "the legendary journalist and old friend, a great man in the history of broadcast journalists, and maybe the most revered person ever to go on camera."

Now that's a load of Qaqaa.
