“We’ve killed over 400,000 of their citizens.” That’s what actor Tim Robbins thinks U.S. troops have been doing in Iraq. He made the claim last week in an appearance on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher.
He’s wrong, of course. American soldiers have not been slaughtering 300 Iraqis a day for the last four years. Even for one of Hollywood’s most feculent personalities, this is an appalling slander of U.S. troops.
And then the stupid De Palma movie:
Most Americans who read about this brutal crime probably understood that most soldiers don’t behave this way. DePalma does not.
