On March 16, conservative pundit Dick Morris told Sean Hannity things were going better than people thought in Iraq, arguing “what is going on is not a civil war.”

Now, Morris believes that there is civil war in Iraq but argues that it’s a good thing. Appearing on the O’Reilly Factor last night, Morris said “a civil war is progress, because it means it’s no longer a war against us.” Watch it:

A recent U.N. report found that over 14,000 civilians have been killed in Iraq during the first half of this year.

Transcript:

O’REILLY: It also knocked Iraq off the front page.

MORRIS: Yeah, well, that’s true. But you know in Iraq, the casualties are dropping, the U.S. casualties are dropping.

O’REILLY: U.S. casualties, right. Civilians – because it’s now a civil war. After Zarqawi was killed, the insurgency fell down.

MORRIS: What we don’t understand is in Iraq, a civil war is progress, because it means it’s no longer a war against us.

O’REILLY: I don’t know, it’s such a mess in there.
