Iraqi Woman to John Bolton: Who are you fooling? [VIDEO]

... and Bolton laughed at on the Daily Show... A double feature!

An Iraqi woman in the audience of a recent BBC program absolutely rips into John Bolton -- and his flimsy talking point arguments on Iraq -- telling him that she's lost more relatives during the 4 year American invasion than during the 30 years of Saddam's rule.

Panelist Tony Benn of the Stop the War Coalition artfully employs both statistic and passionate plea, leaving a red-faced Bolton with American Revolution jokes as his only recourse. Revolution humor being very big in the UK.

"The only good news is that the American people, whom i love, defeated Bush in the midterm elections. That was really really good news..."

Watch all the way through for Benn's emotional recollection of his days in the war and the optimistic beginnings of the UN.

BONUS!! John Stewart makes mincemeat of Bolton, stopping to laugh at his attempt to avoid the obvious with regard to the Plame case...
