– Watch Neocon Bill O’Reilly Get Schooled by Two Actual Military Men During His Show (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 28, 2013):
There aren’t many figures in U.S. media who have done more harm to the nation as a result of their incorrect, imbecilic and irrational platitudes than Fox News neocon fixture Bill O’Reilly. In case you forgot, Mr. O’Reilly was one of the most vocal supporters of the Iraq war, and was adamant in his conviction that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) as he beat the nightly war drums. The man is dangerous disgrace to his profession, the U.S. constitution and pretty much the human species. Only in America can a chicken-hawk like Mr. O’Reilly who has helped cause so much death and destruction still be on the air after having been so wrong on so many important issues.
First let’s remember this from 2004.
From the New York Daily News:
Fox News flamethrower Bill O’Reilly shocked fans and foes alike yesterday by apologizing for accepting President Bush’s claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. “I’m sorry,” O’Reilly said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in a stunning mea culpa. “I think all Americans should be concerned about this, for their families and themselves, that our intelligence isn’t as good as it should be,” he said. O’Reilly was one of the loudest voices calling for Saddam Hussein’s ouster at the “We report, You decide” network and called him a “killer with huge stocks of anthrax and other deadly weapons.
Fast forward a few years and apparently Bill has no problem accepting the claims of the current administration based on zero proof. The man simply never met a war he didn’t want to get involved in. Pretty easy when you never get your hands dirty.
