it might not be a conspiracy but it was quite unprofessional of her.

From Salon.com--the snippet I got was from the War Room.

What happened was that both NBC and Fox News were using Jordanian television facilities for back-to-back Powell interviews. Russert was allotted 10 minutes, and was asked to wrap when he went over by about two minutes. He said "Finally, Mr. Secretary," but abruptly lost his guest.

Russert was still puzzled afterward. "A taxpayer-paid employee interrupted an interview," he said. "Not in the United States of America, that's not supposed to go on. This is attempted news management gone berserk. Secretary Powell was really stand-up. He was a general and took charge." Powell later called the NBC anchor from his plane to apologize for the glitch."

Looks like Republican aid tried to stop Powell from speaking out??? That's what I read, anyway. WEIRD!!! Good for Powell for staying on and Russert for keeping the interview going.

I have it from a source that the aid can read minds and knew that powell was about to say something naughty....

I think the phrase was verifiably disarm...
