Is there a way to delete/remove issues that are closed that dont have a resolution?

When Jira/Greenhopper was first installed, there were a significant number of issues that were being closed without a resolution attached to them. They offer us no historical value and mess up the results of issue searches. Can we delete these somehow without opening them all and then deleting them?

Do a jql search with

status in (Closed, Resolved) and resolution is EMPTY

then bulk change > delete as Timothy suggested.

Alternatively enable editing of closed issues and bulk edit them to add a resolution

That'd be great but you cant edit closed issues I thought...

just updated it with instructions on editing closed issues.
