1. I heard it, too
while doing something in another room. I listened for Chris to point out the mistake but he said nothing, he just let the guy go on and on.

damn, it makes me so mad when popular misconceptions gain credibility because of these asses in the media!

2. That's the only part I saw
and I was sickened by it. Am I to believe that the guy doesn't believe the official version (19 hijackers-none were Iraqi-ALL DEAD!). What revenge is there to be had on suicidal terrorists?

3. Here's the transcript:
:grr: :grr: :grr: :grr:

MCCARTNEY: Just like the old saying, Chris, water rolls downhill.

And it has to start somewhere, so it started at the top.

MATTHEWS: Yes. So you think its inspired by the people higher up who are trying to get the intelligence out of those prisoners?

MCCARTNEY: Yes, sir. Peoplewe have a short memory. They do those things for a reason over there. What about the twin towers?

If we could have got more information about that had there beenhad this war been earlier, something else might have come up about that and we could have prevented a whole lot of casualties.

MATTHEWS: Jim Robey, is that a general view, that we have to be tough with prisoners, period, because we have to get the intelligence out of them because theyre terrorists?

ROBEY: Well, a lot of people are certainly saying it, not only in this community, but I do hear people around the country saying just that, that this, again, this kind of thing to an extent will happen in prisons here in this country. But certainly in a situation of war, if were trying to get information that could prevent a bombing or an attack or an ambush, many people say, so what?

MATTHEWS: Yes, I know. I think a lot of people think like that.
