Ted Koppel on Iraq

Dan Riehl has a video segment of former ABC Nightline anchor Ted Koppel, who appeared yesterday on NBC’s Meet the Press with Tim Russert.

In his appearance, he talked about how a premature withdrawal from Iraq would be disastrous for the region and noted that the war on terror was going on long before GWB was ever elected. The transcript for the show starts here and goes on for a couple of pages. For a quicker version, Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters has the relevant parts of the transcript here.

It’s been nice the last couple of days to see people in MediaLand who actually understand what’s at stake here, who will acknowledge what all too few in the MSM are willing to.
