I Hear the Words But I Can't Believe Who's Saying Them

Kudos to C&L, because if it wasn't a video from an interview on Imus, I wouldn't believe this at all. If you haven't seen this already, I'm betting you can't figure out who said all of the following (and more) before you click on the link...
"Well I am just going to stick to this point that the president led us in there with the background music of American culture. Everybody was led to believe that we were getting payback, we were avenging what happened on 9/11 and that we are going to get them. Vice President Cheney said we are going to attack terrorism at its base. Over and over the language was, this is where it came from, in fact most recently the President suggested that it was always the hot pursuit, like a new York police chase, we chased them back into their country. We pursued the terrorists back to Iraq and it's all nonsense. The reason there are terrorists in Iraq today like Zarqawi is we created the opening by blowing the country apart.

From the beginning it's been not true. Now you can't prove motive and you can't prove somebody lies, but from the beginning everything about how they've got WMD's, they are a threat to us, they are going to bomb us with a nuclear weapon, this country is going to be an easy liberate, it's going to be a cake walk. As Cheney said as recently as ten months ago the insurgents are in their last throws. Everything that is said is not true. And right to the end here, here we are now and it's not a civil war and when Allawi the prime Minster is saying it is a civil war and here is the president quoting his own people that it's not a civil war. I mean the denial has been continuous. So you really can't count on the administration to tell you what is going on. That is just the fact. You've got to check it out.

By the way, the president said this week that he wants the whole truth about what is going on in Iraq, the whole truth and that the media isn't telling the whole story. I'll tell you what we are not telling. We are not showing pictures of the twenty five hundred bodies coming back because they won't let us show the pictures. They don't want the whole truth out and that's the fact."
Ok, now I'm left with a ton of questions.

Is this how he really feels? If so, why can't he say any of this on his show? Did he even know he was on the air? Do they drug him with koolaid before he goes on every weeknight? Or, did he just get really drunk the night before and forget what he was supposed to say in an alcohol-laden sleep deprived stupor, then go back to sleep? That's what I'm guessing most likely happened. Will he even remember he said that?
