Saakashvili--In His Own Words

This interview with Charlie Rose took place just after Saakasvili came into office about four years ago. His comments are eery. When speaking about Shevardnardze, he complains that Shev refused to listen to the people when they said they wanted a change in government.

[Shevardnardze squandered] "a great opportunity to be a founding father of a new nation..."

And he goes on to say this: "So what happened to Shevardnardze. His reputation is ruined. It's a very terrible end to a person who had such brilliant conditions.... and it's a good lesson, also for us."
