Robert Greenwald Destroys Neocon Nutcase Frank Gaffney [VIDEO]

Frank Gaffney is the kind of person who in a sane media environment would never be allowed in front of a camera again.

Not only is he a moron who agitated for this insane war in Iraq and made it seem like it would be a walk in the park--and is now doing the same with Iran--but he also accused those of wanting to debate the validity of our involvment there of "treason" claiming "it should be a hanging offense."

In other words, he is a lunatic even for a Neocon. But additionally, his think tank--The Center For Security Policy--is funded by you guessed it, defense contractors. I'm sure that doesn't affect his opinion on wanting to fight wars where other people's kids die, well, forever.

So it was nice to see Robert remind him on Hardball today, that executives at places like Blackwater and Halliburton are indeed war profiteers, and these mercs who get paid well in excess of our military men and women, hurt morale.

Robert had a number of other great points. To which Gaffney could only respond, twice mind you, "gobbledygook." Yes, I wish I were kidding.

Watch the video and enjoy Robert's beatdown of this emissary of misery.
