A few moments ago during Special Report’s Grapevine segment, Brian Wilson made note of recent comments made by Hardball’s Chris Mathews…
MSNBC host Chris Mathews says President Bush invaded Iraq because “he wanted a big bang on the War On Terror”. What’s more the Toronto Sun reports that during a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto, Mathews said The Administration shouldn’t demonize terrosist saying, “the person on the other side isn’t evil. They just have a different perspective.”
Methinks Mathews hasn’t heard the last of this…..
UPDATE: Powerline has comments from Mathews on this incident.
I told the students that the way to deal with terrorists is the way Golda Meir did after the attack on the Israeli Olympic athletes: hunt them down and kill them one at a time and be rough about it.
Every person in that room heard my say this. I don’t know why the reporter chose to conflate my remarks about our need to get behind the forces in the Muslim world into my approach on how to deal with terrorists.
Feel free to check with the University of Toronto students who invited me to speak.
Will FNC note Mathews comments to Powerline on this today?
