A very alert reader, Larwyn, tipped me to this terrorist sympathizing appearance of former Ambassador to Iraq, Ed Peck, on Fox’s Dayside this afternoon. Ian Schwartz has the video and a partial transcript. You really have to see it to believe it. Peck not only said that Hezbollah is not a terrorist organization, but rather an organization with “objectives to which we object very strongly,” but he also compared Hezbollah to our troops in WWII.
Yesterday I blogged about CNN correspondent Tom Foreman’s inability to define Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. There seems to be an epidemic of those who argue there is no difference between Israel and Hezbollah or between the U.S. and the terrorists. What is it going to take to make the distinction? Hopefully it will not take another 9/11. At this point, I fear that might not even be enough to make some understand the difference.
