    William Sullivan writes for the American Thinker about the potentially devastating impact of recently released emails from Dr. Anthony Fauci.

  • On March 8, 2020, Dr. Fauci famously told Americans via 60 Minutes that there's no reason to be walking around with a mask. In fact, masks are likely even counterproductive, he said, because people don't wear them correctly, constantly touch their face when wearing them, and the mask may give a false sense of security to wearers that may lessen other practical precautions to avoid exposure, like washing hands or physical distancing.
  • Months later, he told us that he knew that masks actually would save countless lives, but he was lying to us in March about masks' effectiveness because wanted to protect the medical mask supply chains for hospital workers. And he had "no regrets" about telling this lie. ...
  • ... Fauci still lied to the American people, and that should be an unacceptable violation of the public trust for a federal health official. But many on the left, including some progressive friends of mine, still argued the fawning media's position that it was something of a "noble lie" meant to protect hospital workers. ...
  • ... Well, new email revelations prove that when he told Americans that masks didn't work, he truly didn't believe that the masks worked. He was recommending in private emails exactly what he told Americans in the 60 Minutes interview where he claims to have been lying to everyone. It wasn't until the end of March that the private emails seem to suggest that Fauci had "become more receptive to the idea of masking up."
  • In short, he was lying when he claimed that he had previously lied to us.
  • It's mind-boggling that the most prominent health official in the country would create and disseminate an audacious lie about his having conspired with the public health intelligentsia to deceive the entire country, believing that to be a better option than simply owning up to his having reacted to an evolving position on the matter over time and given new information.
