Talk:Battle of the Bulge
Cut from end of article:
- The infamous massacre of American soldiers by Joachim Peiper's 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte occured during the Battle of the Bulge on December 17th. Taken prisoner by the panzer division near Malmedy, 71 men from Battery B of the 285th Field Artillery Observation Battalion were gunned down and clubbed to death in a nearby field. Twenty-one men survived to testify about the massacre by playing dead or escaping. The conservative talk-show host Bill O'Reilly has on two separate occasions stated on his show that it was American troops who had massacred German troops at Malmedy in his defense of American atrocities in Iraq.
ya I think that some of the statement should come out, not all of it. --Will N. 09:19, 4 May 2007 (EDT)
- The part that should be in, is the part about which soldiers were massacred and by whom. The part that's irrelevant is the political point which the ultra-liberal website 'Media Matters' wants to make. If they have a bone to pick with O'Reilly, and if we think it's important enough to describe that "bone" in this writing project, then we need to talk about that dispute on the appropriate page. --Ed Poor 09:25, 4 May 2007 (EDT)
