Jim Moran: American Troops Practice Genocide

In case we forgot Harry Reid's fantasy of al-Qaeda "civil war" in Iraq from yesterday, Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) reminds us why Democrats have gone out of their minds on the Iraq debate. Moran tells Congress during the funding debate that American troops "ethnically cleansed" Baghdad. No kidding (via The Corner):

"Sure, there's less violence, but that's because we've ethnically cleansed most of Baghdad."

The UN and most of the rest of the world define ethnic cleansing as a form of genocide. Moran believes that American troops have conducted that crime in Baghdad as part of a pacification program. His words have no other meaning.

Of course, such an allegation is absurd on its face. Refugees streaming back to the capital put lie to such a scurrilous charge. In the next breath, Moran notes that the Sunnis stopped fighting us and started fighting al-Qaeda. Would they have likely made a choice to support the side committing genocide -- or did they recognize who the real genocidal maniacs are?

The overall conduct of our military has been upright, honorable, and has given great credit to the nation. Unfortunately, despicable public servants such as Moran have no problem slandering them in order to score political points.
