Chris Matthews: I'm A Real Hard-Ass, Honestly

Moonbat One writes that Chris Matthews is claiming he didn't mean our enemies are "not evil -- they just have a different perspective."

Chris Matthews emailed Powerline, claiming whoever said we need to be more touchy-feely and understand of Al-Qaeda totally got him wrong. He says:

"I told the students that the way to deal with terrorists is the way Golda Meir did after the attack on the Israeli Olympic athletes: hunt them down and kill them one at a time and be rough about it.

Every person in that room heard my say this. I don't know why the reporter chose to conflate my remarks about our need to get behind the forces in the Muslim world into my approach on how to deal with terrorists.

Feel free to check with the University of Toronto students who invited me to speak."

That's from PowerLine.

Sorry, Chris, but you said something almost identical a year ago.

There is a possible resolution of this, which probably makes sense to Hissy-Fit Chris, given his politics on this. Which is:

Al Qaeda is a horrible enemy which must be hunted down like animals;

but

the "insurgents in Iraq" are "not evil-- they just have a different perspective" and these are not the same as Al Qaeda, despite the fact they call themselves "Al Qaeda in Iraq."

In fact, when Chris made his previous statement calling these people "rival[s]" who "just have a different perspective" he was, in fact, talking about the "insurgents" in Iraq, who are, I guess, in his mind different than "the terrorists."

Makes no sense, except to an idiot liberal like Matthews, but perhaps that's what he's driving at.
