"At Large w/ Geraldo Rivera: Explosives at al-QaQaa Are Now Killing Our Servicemen
At Large with Geraldo Rivera on FOXNews Channel | 10/30/2004 | Pirate21

Posted on 10/30/2004 7:44:38 PM PDT by Pirate21

Geraldo just interviewed Col. David Hunt and allowed him to allege that the al-QaQaa explosives are now killing our servicemen!*&!

Perhaps this segment was pre-recorded, but then FOXNews needs to make an announcement and not broadcast the word "Live" in the corner.

The explosives we destroyed or the explosives the Russians took?

Absolutely NO proof of that.

If we hadn't waited fourteen damn months to go in, maybe we would have been able to secure/destroy the explosives before they were spirited away.

I saw that - Hunt was way out of line. He knows that these IEDs are made from artillery shells and garage door openers, not RDX.

What in the world did terrorists use to blow things up before this ? Is it their premise that we would not be sufering casualties if these weapons never existed ?

How bad could it be? Saddam convinced the IAEA back in 1995 it wasn't harmful and was used to build roads, right?

It takes a lot of time for logistics to be in place. I steamed about it too. And, we had to give the UN enough time to clean out the Iraqi banks.

Hunt is too ridiculous. Do all weapons injuring our soldiers have "Made in Al QaQa" stamped on the bottom?

I just posted this same subject over on the chat board. It seems that Col Hunt has done a 180 degree turn away from Presidet Bush. He use to be such a strong supporter.

I absolutely refuse to watch one second of Whorealdo after hearing him, the other night, talk about the Swift Boat baloney.

Whorealdo sucks.

What's with Hunt? I'd expect this from Rivera but not Hunt. Rivera must have asked him a leading question he went with without thinking. That's Geraldo's style. He thought he found WNDs in Afghanistan that the US military had missed. I didn't see it. I switched to O'Neill on CSPAN, where he was called a liar again by the DIM he's on with (Smith, author of 'Unfit Commander').

Not watching, but I don't think Col Hunt would ever say that. He is one of the staunchest backers of our troops and the President. Geraldo, on the other hand, drew the map in the sand of our troops assault on Bagdad. I.m sure he was just showing us where Capone was.

actually, Geraldo himself said in his opening statement that what he saw when he was embedded, was alot of attention to these ammo dumps by the troops. Then, Geraldo went into a segment with Jonathan Hunt, chasing El Baredi down a street in Manhattan asking him if he released this report this week to damage Bush politically. El Baredi gave some evasive answers - then Jonathan Hunt said El Baredi ran off, and called Colin Powell to complain about the questions!

Geraldo is a tremendous supporter of US troops in both Afghanistan and Iraq.

I saw it and he said it. He also said that the planning for the peace has been poor and they need many more troops and personnel in Iraq.

Geraldo is a black hole of death on TV. Why did FOX hire him? Why as anyone ever given this man a job. He should be on the block, selling used cars.

I will give the Col. a pass until I see the exact context and exchange between the two.

There are SO MANY enough munitions STILL in Iraq, unaccounted for, to keep the locals well supplied for years. We need to wipe Falluja off the map.

Sort it out later.

I'm not watching , so this is a guess: Maybe he meant that some of the munitions that were taken out of Al QuaQa before the invasion were now being used against the coalition forces. That would make more sense. Anybody?

No. He said there were many more weapons/explosives that are missing and are being used again the troops. He said it was because of poor planning.

Un-freking-believable. Co Hunt has been one of my heroes throughout. I wish he hadn't said it. But, the lib Geraldo, will say anything against Bush. That's the way I see it. Thanks for the slap to get me back to reality!

If he said it, he should take it up with active commanders in the military, not President Bush! For him to be as politically naive as others are suggesting, means he should slow down, listen to himself, and realize he needs a break. When I hear stuff like this, I think even the best intentioned conservatives get an ego complex.

Watch or tape the re-broadcast at 1:00am (Eastern), and you can hear it for yourself. You may be as stunned as I was to hear this spewing forth from the mouth of Col. Hunt. [Also, see posts 7 and 18.]

Strange how ammo allegedly missing for 18 months, is now killing our troops. What the hell were they using before, the great election eve revelation by the Kerry kissing Bush bashing, rectums associated with the UN? Spit balls?

No, that is Kerry who dreams of wars fought with spit balls, isn't it?

I heard him say it too. He was not talking about Al caca specifically but I was still puzzled why he said it. We have destroyed over 400,000 tons of ammo. There was ammo stashed into every nook and cranny in Iraq and he acted like we should have secured all of it within hours of invasion. What a joke.

and Geraldo may well have been the first person on FNC to say point blank that this Al Qa Qa story was released by El Baredi to hurt Bush politically.

I think he's pissed about Falujah. He wanted it taken down a long time ago. I remember him saying it needed to be flattened.
