Asked if he wanted the US to win in Iraq, David Letterman (I’m a fan) at first hesitated, then waffled. Asked again (by Bill O’Reilly; I’m not a fan), Letterman made an idiot of himself:
O’Reilly: Let me ask you something. And this is a serious question. Do you want the United States to win in Iraq?
Letterman: Here is my position in the beginning … I sort of felt the way everybody did, we felt like we wanted to do something, because something terrible had been done to us. We did not understand exactly why; all we knew was something terrible, something heinous, something obscene had been done to us. So while it didn’t necessarily make sense to go into Iraq as it did perhaps to go into Afghanistan I, like most everybody else, felt like yes, we needed to do something. And as the weeks turned into months, years and one death became a dozen deaths and a hundred deaths and a thousand deaths, then we began to realize, “You know what? Maybe we’re causing more trouble over there than the whole effort has been worth.”
O’Reilly: Possible, but do you right now? Do you want the United States to win in Iraq? … It’s an easy question, if you don’t want the United States to win …
Letterman: It’s not easy for me because I’m thoughtful.
Letterman’s had three years to think about this … and still can’t decide if he’d prefer the US (fighting alongside Iraqi forces) to prevail. Sad.
