C-Span Founder Brian Lamb retiring

This weekend, it was announced that Brian Lamb, the founder of non-profit Television network C-SPAN, was retiring.  Despite CSPAN's reputation as only showing the snoozeworthy U.S. Congress, the network has not been afraid to cover the more controversial side of American politics.  Here is a long and excellent interview conducted by Lamb.
      The sibject is Karen Kwiatkowski, an Air Force Lt. Col. who worked in the Pentagon as a Middle East analyst during the run up to the Iraq War.  Two days after the war began, she quit the Pentagon and went on to blow the whistle on the cooked up Iraq intelligence she had witnessed at the Defense Department, notably in the "Office of Special Plans."
