Video: Hunter asks Blitzer, “Does CNN want America to win this thing?”

Hunter asked Rumsfeld on Friday to disembed CNN’s reporters as punishment for airing pointless jihadi snuff. Blitzer had him on today to talk things over.

A meeting of the minds was not in the cards.

I had to cut a lot, including Blitzer’s repeated assertions that CNN didn’t show the moment where the bullet went in, as though lead piercing skin and not the network’s intent in running the segment was the objectionable element here. In any case, they did show the soldier wounded (dying?) and slumped forward. See for yourself.

Update: Michael Ware, the CNN correspondent who took the video from the jihadis, has a history. Kesher Talk remembers.
