Update On Matthews: He Meant What We Thought He Did, That Terrorists "Just Have A Different Perspective"... He's Said As Much Before

More Than Loans remembered this post I did way back last November. It pretty much settles the question of what Chris Matthews meant in his latest outburst.

I was pretty much the only guy, as far as I know, to catch Chris Matthews making this statement a year ago; I transcribed his words directly from his show. It's a perfect translation; I remember going back and forth on the DVR to catch every word.

MATTHEWS: Well let me ask you about this. If this were on the other side, and we were watching an enemy soldier-- a rival, I mean, they're not bad guys especially, they're just people who disagree with you; they are in fact the insurgents fighting us in their country -- if we saw one of them do what we saw our guy did to that guy [i.e., shooting the playing-dead terrorist], would that be worthy of a war-crime charge?

Emphasis added, but then, Hissy-Fit Chris kinda talks in bold-face italics, doesn't he?

More Than Loans has more links on Matthews, too.
