Bill Ayers and Me
My interview with Bill Ayers is getting some attention, not all of it positive. One blogger uses the occasion to attack my appearance and calls me a “liberal whore” simply for interviewing him. Another says he doesn’t like my style and, besides, “Ayers is a terrorist.” I didn’t realize that interviews are only to be conducted with members of society that meets their approval.
Drudge, however, has some of the highlights, part of a much larger interview which will be presented in its full form in the days to come.
Ayers on President Obama sending 17,000 additional troops to Afghanistan:
“It’s a mistake. It’s a colossal mistake. And, you know, we’ve seen this happen before, Alan. We’ve seen a hopeful presidency, Lyndon Johnson’s presidency, burn up in the furnace of war.”
“I fear that this brilliant young man, this hopeful new administration, could easily burn their prospect of a great presidency in the war in Afghanistan or elsewhere.”
On setting bombs as part of the Weather Underground:
“I don’t regret anything I did it to oppose the war. It was — I did it to oppose the war. I don’t regret it.”
“I don’t look back on those things and regret them, but I’m willing to rethink them. And there are many things which I’m going to rethink.
