Tim Robbins: "If You F**k Things Up You Can No Longer Be An Expert" [VIDEO]

Tim Robbins and Bill Maher clash with Cheney biographer Stephen Hayes about the rationale for the Iraq War.
On the first episode of this season of Real Time with Bill Maher, actor Tim Robbins and Bill Maher (joined by NPR's Michel Martin) totally obliterate Dick Cheney's number one fan, writer Stephen Hayes. Hayes still insists that there was a relationship between Al Qaeda and Iraq in spite of all the evidence. Maher has a great bit about how 9/11 actually changed nothing (taxes weren't raised, there was no draft etc..etc..). Meanwhile, Robbins makes a great point about how these people who are responsible for the deaths of thousands are still being allowed to determine public policy and he holds Hayes to account for perpetuating the lie about Saddam's involvement in 9/11. "The American people would have never sanctioned this war if they had the facts," says Robbins. It's going to be a great season. Check out the video to your right for more.
