Mokhiber: Ari, yesterday on C-Span, Congressman (Bob) Filner and Congress (Joe) Wilson got into it on the war in Iraq. Congressman Filner said that Saddam Hussein, during the Iran/Iraq war, obtained biological and chemical weapons technology from the United States. Congressman Wilson then accused Filner of hating America and being viscerally anti-American. I'm wondering if you believe that people who oppose this war are in any sense anti-American or hate America.

Ari Fleisher: Russell, I appreciate your giving me the opportunity to referee somebody else's dispute. But as I said, the President is going to continue to work with Democrats and Republicans alike and respects the opinions who agree with him and tend to vote for him and respects the opinions of those who disagree with him and may vote against him.

Mokhiber: If I could follow-up. . .(Ari moves on)
