NBC's The Today Show isn't too happy with Prince Harry's recents comment about killing Taliban fighters. Yesterday guests on the program criticized the Prince for "antagonizing" the Taliban and for playing video games before talking about "oh my God we killed people."
"I thought he jumped the shark when he was shown playing video games and then it was, 'Oh my God, we killed people.'" Co-host Matt Lauer sparked the exchange by wondering: "He talks about his missions, the missions he went on where he was fired upon by the Taliban and returned fire, killing some members of the Taliban. And he takes it kind of matter-of-factly....What do you think about it? Is it okay?"
In part, the Prince told reporters: "Yes, we fire when we have to, take a life to save a life, but essentially we're more of a deterrent than anything else. If there's people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we'll take them out of the game, I suppose."
Yes Today, Prince Harry did kill people, the same people who want to kill you and the same people who shot at him and his fellow soldiers during their time in Afghanistan.
