The apotheosis of the 101st Fighting Keyboarders, Hugh Hewitt
(HH is Hewitt, HT is Helen Thomas)
HH: I’m asking, Helen, if you think Saddam was good for Iraq?
HT: Of course not.
HT: But I don’t think it was right to go in and to kill thousands of people.
HH: Do you think he would have killed even more…
HH: …and that there would have been any free elections?
HT: No, no. I think that we brought it on, and we have really killed thousands. And I don’t know how you can face that fact and look in the mirror.
HH: And what would have happened to the Oil For Food program if Saddam had not been removed?
HT: Look, are you…I’m talking about human beings. Why don’t you try to think of the people you’ve killed. All of us. It’s all on our hands.
HH: Helen, again, I think it was a good thing…
HT: I’m so sorry that you don’t care about people who’ve been slained, thousands and thousands. I mean, worry about them.
Thousands of Iraqi men, women, and children had to die to fulfill Hugh Hewitt’s dream of empire….and that makes Hugh happy.
