Video: King says Baghdad is Just Like Manhattan

A friend of King Watch and a recipient of one of Kings many nasty letters caught King in his most delusional state.

The transcript from Think Progress...
"As we go through the city of Baghdad, it was like being in Manhattan. I mean, I’m talking about bumper to bumper traffic, talking about shopping centers, talking about restaurants, talking about video stores, talking about guys selling (inaudible) on the street corner, talking about major hotels.

And so, at that moment, people must be (inaudible) resilient and you would never know that there was a war going on. Now, car bomb goes off, and that street or those streets for that hour and people will (inaudible) but the rest of the country is functioning.

Up in Mosul, I remember seeing news reports about roller coasters? Where you had two or three parking lots filled with their cars on a Sunday afternoon. Again, that’s not something you’d see on television, and at any given time a suicide bomber can walk into an amusement center, but the point I’m making is that the situation is more stable than you think."

Yes, completely delusional. Latest study conducted by Johns Hopkins approximates 600,000 dead Iraqis. That coupled with flickering power, no jobs, no safety or security or police force, sure, sounds just like Manhattan????
