Skip to comments.Colmes Says Murtha was Right About "Cold Blooded Murder"
Posted on 02/09/2007 8:32:46 PM PST by Chickenhawk Warmonger
Tonight's Hannity and Colmes featured an interview with Col. Oliver North about the media coverage of Iraq and the William Arkin slam against our soldiers. During the course of the interview, Alan Colmes claimed that Rep. John Murtha was right when Murtha accused our Marines of killing innocent civilians in Haditha in cold blood. Col. North immediately reminded Colmes that the Marines had yet to face a trial therefore they were innocent until proven guilty. Colmes replied "there were confessions".
Here's my personal transcript of that portion of the interview... Colmes: Murtha turned out to have correct information. Dick Durbin was talking about treatment gitmo specifically. Col North: Alan, let's deal with these one at a time. Colmes: We don't have a lot of time but let's deal with them. Col. North: There is no proof of what Mr. Murtha said because those trials have not taken place yet. And you believe, as i do. Colmes: There have been convictions. Col. North: Innocent until proven guilty. Colmes: There have been confessions
Colmes was grossly mistaken. There have been no confessions from any of the Marines accused in the Haditha incident. There has yet to be a hearing for these Marines ergo no convictions. Like all American citizens, the Marines are innocent until proven guilty.
Colmes owes these Marines an apology and an on-air correction. John Murtha and the media have done their best to convict these Marines in the court of public opinion. Our soldiers deserve so much better than this.
My correction is we should give our troops 72 hours to evacuate that whole entire area, leave everything behind, and just go Manhattan project on that entire bug infested cesspool. It`s humanity that has failed miserably. Erase the slate and start again.
I do not miss Fox News Channel (except for Brit's show).
When idiots like this are foisted on us as savvy, it's time to pack it in and move deep into the mountains and bark at the moon.
Colmes, like most idiotic leftists, is confused about the cases.
Murtha is a disgrace.
Yep! thats right.
Colmes is a liar. Greta Van Cesspool's soap operas are a waste of oxygen, and Juan The Moron is... a moron.
Colmes is a idiotic lame a$$ leftie. But alot of Americans are of the same caliber.
Murtha is insane.
Colmes is actaully one of the more reasonable of that species. Tells ya something, huh?
Just wishful thinking on Colmes' part. Yes, he wants them to be guilty.
Honestly, I have not watched FNC for at least 2 years.
And no, I do not watch any other cable news channel.
Colmes is such an idiot I can't stand to watch that show any more ... unless ann Couleter is on. Even then he ruins it with his asinine questions.
Let jazusamo or me know if you want on the Haditha Marine Ping List.
I wonder if Fox is aware of how many viewers they have lost with their "fair and balanced" schtick?
Then again, maybe their ratings are as high as ever.
Folks, we badly need a truly conservative national television channel.
Thanks for posting this thread, CW. That sounds like it's exactly what that mealy mouthed Colmes would say, he's as despicable as Murtha.
