Round 2: Megyn Kelly Asks Ward Churchill If U.S. Deserves to Be Bombed Again

Megyn Kelly tonight aired part two of her big interview with Professor Ward Churchill. And perhaps the biggest question of the night was this from Kelly: “Do you believe the United States ought to be bombed?”

Kelly challenged Churchill’s assertions about the supposed genocide of Native Americans, citing historians who have accused him of fabricating facts. Churchill told Kelly she doesn’t know what she’s talking about and said the university committee that leveled that charge was found to have done so in response to his remarks about 9/11.

Kelly also pressed him on his claim that the World Trade Center was a fair target, by the U.S.’ own standards, for terrorists to hit on 9/11, because there were CIA offices in the building. But Kelly pointed out the CIA offices were in WTC 7, which was not directly attacked, just taken down by debris. Churchill sidestepped and said it’s just as accurate as U.S. targeting.

And on the question of whether the U.S. deserves to be bombed again, Kelly repeatedly pushed him and said, “Why can’t you have the courage to just answer honestly? Yes or no?” Churchill answered, “If you open yourself up under rule of law for reciprocation in kind, it’s quite likely going to happen.”
