We have received a message from Chris Matthews, apparently in response to Paul’s post “Chris Matthews in Canada.” Here is the message in its entirety:
I told the students that the way to deal with terrorists is the way Golda Meir did after the attack on the Israeli Olympic athletes: hunt them down and kill them one at a time and be rough about it.
Every person in that room heard my say this. I don’t know why the reporter chose to conflate my remarks about our need to get behind the forces in the Muslim world into my approach on how to deal with terrorists.
Feel free to check with the University of Toronto students who invited me to speak.
