On the March 15 edition of "The View," Rosie O’Donnell brought up the news of Khalid Sheik Mohammed’s many confessions. Rosie, who believes radical Christianity is just as dangerous as radical Islam, was more outraged on unproven allegations of torture than the horrific atrocities Mohammed confessed to. On her latest rant she also demonstrated her lack of knowledge on the extensive al Qaeda network.
O’DONNELL: I think the man has been in custody of the American government, in secret CIA torture prisons in Guantanamo Bay, where torture is accepted and allowed, and he finally is the guy who admits to doing everything. They finally found the guy. It's not that guy bin Laden. It's this guy they've had since ‘93. And look, this is the picture they released of him. Doesn’t, he look healthy?
Token non-liberal Elisabeth Hasselbeck was unusually assertive through the course of the discussion, and even exposed how shallow Rosie’s opinions are. Just as Rosie did not answer whether or not she wanted the United States to win in Iraq, she did not answer what she would do with the detained terrorists.
HASSELBECK: What do think should happen? What do you think should happen?
O’DONNELL: We should uphold the standards of the Geneva Convention and lead the free world in democracy.
HASSELBECK: I believe that. But what, specifically, if there was someone, say, who had been plotting an attack, how do you think they should be interrogated? What methods do you think would be fair?
O’DONNELL: I don't think the United States should ever, ever, ever torture other people.
Rosie, who claimed terrorists are mothers and fathers, was concerned about robbing the "humanity" of terrorists.
O’DONNELL: Because you don't think terrorists, you don’t think terrorists- you think that robs them of their humanity. That name "terrorist" makes them not human any more? They don’t-
While giving the full benefit of the doubt to a known terror leader, Rosie asserted without doubt, and without any hard evidence to prove, that the United States tortured this information out of the al Qaeda leader.
O’DONNELL: But I think this man, for whatever he did or didn’t do, he is not the be-all and end-all of terrorism in America and our government has not found the answer and this one thing –
BEHAR: One thing: He does, he does-
HASSELBECK: But he said he was.
O’DONNELL: After hood on his head and beaten to death.
HASSELBECK: Do you know that a hood was on his head that he was beaten?
O’DONNELL: Oh dear God, Elisabeth.
HASSELBECK: He’s still alive.
O’DONNELL: Why, since March 2003 has he not admitted it until now?
