CNN Accuses Military Of Deliberately Killing Journalists

From the National Review, I found this bit of sheer idiocy at the Davos forum:

During one of the discussions about the number of journalists killed in the Iraq War, Eason Jordan asserted that he knew of 12 journalists who had not only been killed by US troops in Iraq, but they had in fact been targeted. He repeated the assertion a few times, which seemed to win favor in parts of the audience (the anti-US crowd) and cause great strain on others.

In case you didn't know, Eason Jordan is the EVP and Chief News Executive of CNN. Let's continue:

His statements, his reaction, and the reaction of all in attendance left me perplexed and confused. Many in the crowd, especially those from Arab nations, applauded what he said and called him a "very brave man" for speaking up against the U.S. in a public way amongst a crowd ready to hear anti-US sentiments. I am quite sure that somewhere in the Middle East, right now, his remarks are being printed up in Arab language newspapers as proof that the U.S. is an evil and corrupt nation. That is a real nightmare, because the Arab world is taking something said by a credible leader of the media (CNN!) as the gospel, or koranic truth.

This is unbelievable. Again you see a leftist doing his utmost to undermine the US in front of an anti-American audience, joining a long list that includes morons like Michael Moore and Jimmy Carter. Why on earth does this idiot believe this is appropriate? Why undermine our military? If you have evidence, present it. But don't speculate. Jackass.

The left has been attacking our military since the 1960s. And they are still trying to undermine it. But then these same leftists cannot understand why few trust them on foreign policy and national security matters. And please, whatever you do, don't say they are unpatriotic. That would be out of bounds.
