This is from the New York Daily News;

Tora Bora vet
at war with Geraldo


Geraldo Rivera should be glad he got out of Iraq without a broken nose, according to a former Green Beret who says the Fox News star has a history of jeopardizing military operations.
Ex-Army commando Keith (Jack) Idema isn't surprised that military officials accused Rivera of leaking their positions on the air. Idema tells us that, when he served as an adviser to Northern Alliance forces in Afghanistan, he was ready to "punch out"

Rivera for allegedly putting his coalition comrades at risk with his newsgathering.

Idema, who figures prominently in Robin Moore's best seller "The Hunt for Bin Laden," was retired when he flew to Afghanistan in December 2001 to help Gen. Hazrat Ali.

"We had two- and three-man sniper teams hiding out in the mountains" of Tora Bora, recalls Idema. "Geraldo found out about it from the [anti-Taliban] mujahedeen soldiers. We were paying them between $25 and $100 a month. Geraldo put the word out that he would pay any Afghan who deserted the U.S. Army $100 a day to point out where the snipers were so he could get pictures of them."

Not surprisingly, Idema says, it wasn't hard to find volunteers. "Here are a couple of snipers hidden in this cave, and Geraldo comes prancing up.

Of course, now everybody knows where they are.

"One of my muj told me about him. I got into my damn car, drove to the hill where the media was camped to find Geraldo. He'd just left. Several of us were drawing straws about who would knock him out and escort him out of the place."

Rivera also caught heat in Afghanistan when he erroneously claimed to be standing on "hallowed ground" where U.S. soldiers had been killed by friendly fire.

A spokesman for Fox said the newsman couldn't be reached for comment. Maybe we'll hear from him once he's settled into his new digs in Kuwait.

Geraldo thinks it's all about him, not about the war. Maybe he's trying to win a Pulitzer or something by reporting military movements beforehand, rather that what he should be doing....reporting the story after it happens. Idiot.

Wait... Geraldo Rivera, a hack? About as far as you can get from "journalist" without working for a newspaper that posts pictures of Satan's face in rainclouds?

There were people who didn't know this?

Er, aside from Geraldo himself, of course.

I just thought that the sniper thing was stupid even for him...

I don't blame Geraldo. He is what he is. I blame FoxNews for giving him a mic and a press pass. Once again, Rupurt Murdoch's media empire demonstrates it cares more about personalities and sensationalism than about responsible journalism and objectivity.

I am the only one who finds it incredibely ironic that the channel that is always talking about how other channels are defeatist and end up helping the Iraqis is the only one that ACTUALLY ended up helping the Iraqis?

Geraldo is a fraud now, he was a fraud in the 80's during the Al Capone vault crap, and he was a fraud in the 90's when he would give verbal BJ's nightly to Clinton on his CNBC show.

You know, I'm surprised this bastard's still alive. My father, two of my cousins and three friends of mine are Rangers. Had Geraldo walked up to ANY of them during a mission, he'd have had his throat cut and been buried in a shallow grave before he blew their positions.

I sympathise with their views. Damn the ROE, damn the president wanting positive relations with the media. You endanger my team in any way, you die.



Two hours later they decided to stop at a diner
Because they loved the smell of eggs and coffee
I just had to smoke a cigarette and wear a hat
By the time that they set off again, the sun was starting to set
It made the sky look red like a nuclear ray
One of them said "what do you want more than anything
in this whole wide world
Do you want money, do you want sex, or do you want all that success?"
I thought about that one myself
(Then they came upon the thing)

For some strange reason, if the military blew Geraldo's head off, it would mostly be media members leading the parade.

I cannot say how happy I am to find something that we all, on some level, agree on.... if only that chair would have hit him a little harder.

No fucking shit. This asshole is endangering the lives of some of the most badass soldiers on this earth. They showed REMARKABLE restraint. I probably would have busted his teeth out and hogtied him naked for the Taliban to find.

OK, now you are threatening him. Flame away



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
