Fox on Iran: You Could be Nuked, oh, Tonight

Reported by Melanie - February 1, 2007 -

Yesterday the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies issued a report saying that Iran is 2 to 3 years away from having a nuclear weapon. In August, 2005, the U.S. National Intelligence Estimate judged Iran to be roughly ten years away from having a nuclear weapon. Yet the image presented on Fox News today (February 1, 2007) was of nuclear bombs going off over U.S. cities tonight.

In a segment captioned, "NY Times Says American is 'Bullying' Iran," based on today's Times editorial, Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis and radical radio talk show host, Paul McGuire were Cavuto's guests.

Their comments included:


It's Iran that's the bully here. Iran's causing untold problems in Iraq...so I think the New York Times has it just opposite. ... This is common sense. If you're being antagonized and attacked by a bully in that region, you're going to do what is reasonable.


Unfortunately Neil, I think we're approaching the inevitable and the inevitable is that the United States of America, in order to preserve its freedom and survival...and to protect nations like Israel, must consider very seriously a military strike against the nation of Iran. ... Unfortunately, I think the Times' policy is suicidal and Neil, my heart breaks because I would hate to see multiple nukes going off in U.S. cities because we're appeasing the new Adolph Hitler, which is the regime in Iran.

Comment: Neil Cavuto did not ask either of his guests to substantiate their claims.
