Skip to comments.Fox’s Geraldo Rivera Caught In Crossfire Between Rebels And Gaddafi’s Snipers

Geraldo Rivera reporting from Libya truly demonstrates the great lengths he will go in order to report a story, as he found himself in the middle of crossfire between an unruly gang of Libyan rebels and the professional snipers from Gaddafis forces. Geraldo quickly ducks for cover, and the brave crew keeps the camera rolling.
Rivera described the chaotic experience:
It was a wild, wild scene. And I was as worried about getting shot in the back by the good guys, as I was about getting shot in the front by the Gaddafi forces.
Also with his on-the-ground knowledge, Rivera provides a startling assessment of the rebel army, suggesting they have the fire discipline of an L.A. street gang. As a result, Rivera advises against NATO or America arming the rebels, because if the rebels had more weapons, Geraldo predicts they would be a grave danger to themselves and others [since] they dont know how to use these weapons.

They must be awfully poor shots.
Hard to decide who I’m for.... HOLD IT!!.. will get back to you..
He thinks Al Queda is “the good guys”.
Geraldo should have just drawn a line in the sand!!!
Last time Geraldo pretended to be under fire he was actually back at the firebase, miles away from the shooting.
Looked staged to me. In the full length clip occasionally you see other people and they are showing little or no concern at all while Whoraldo crawls around on the ground playing make-believe.....
look at the Geraldo footage and picture where the cameraman was. He must have been fully exposed to take those shots.
Those goat humpers need to go back to the rifle range and get tuned up.
But the real question is.....is the Mustache ok?
They need to require hunting orange on him.
Did he draw a map in the sand for the cameras??
Naaaah, Horrendo Revolver would never stage anything.
I am surprised that the snipers have not hit his ego - that would be a difficult target to miss.
It’s tough for the media when both sides are the bad guys. I guess that confuses The Muslim Messiah and the RATs in Congress too.
I hope he knows Jesus.
Bump for a laugh tonight.
He should have brought a pink tutu and sang “give peace a chance”. That would cause them all to stop fighting and love each other.
If its Geraldo, he either a) staged it or b) got in way over his head on purpose, endangering his crew.
