Liz Cheney To Bill O’reilly: What Would You Have Done In Iraq? Talked To Saddam?
New York Times reporter John F. Burns, April 10, 2003:
“Saddam Hussein’s rule collapsed in a matter of hours today across much of this capital city as ordinary Iraqis took to the streets in their thousands to topple Mr. Hussein’s statues, loot government ministries and interrogation centers and to give a cheering, often tearful welcome to advancing American troops.
In the following segment O’Reilly swallows the lame stream media’s position that we were not greeted as liberators in Iraq, which is incorrect. O’Reilly argues that only a few hundred celebrated, he must have missed the thousands who took to the streets to cheer the Americans. However, as the second video explains, the celebration was delayed because the people feared for their lives.
Clifford May explains: There were secret police who warned the people to NOT celebrate or even wave to the Americans or they would be killed. One old woman did wave and she was hung in the public square. Another man had his tongue cut out and was left to bleed to death. But once the people felt safe they did celebrate.
