Arianna Talks About Misplaced Priorities In Fighting Terrorism (VIDEO)

Keith Olbermann invited Arianna onto his first show back after the holidays to discuss the way terrorism has become a political football. Following Richard Wolffe's analysis that our first line of defense is our intelligence system, Arianna pointed out that systemic failures are exacerbated because we are distracted by the wrong war at the wrong time in Afghanistan.

Keith and Arianna also discussed how the GOP has tried to exploit the terror threat without acknowledging things that happened under their watch. "The media need to hold Dick Cheney accountable," said Arianna, pointing out that the former vice president has been lobbing political grenades via press releases instead of interviews where he might be held accountable by the media.
