I Was Going to Leave Eason Jordan Alone...
In that interview, Eason reasserts his position that he was simply trying to distinguish between "collateral" and and other kinds of unintended damage.
"I was trying to make a distinction between 'collateral damage' and people who got killed in other ways,"
Well, why didn't he just say so to begin with? As I posted yesterday, the military makes a distinction between "collateral" and "unintended" damage, but also admits that it is a distinction without a significant difference, except in the planning stages of a mission.
Mr. Jordan, if you were just trying to make this distinction, why don't you just apologize for the offensive manner in which you expressed yourself and we will move on.
