BillO won't cover the violence in Iraq because he thinks it's not relevant to the discussion of the Iraq war. You know those insurgent types are just mugging for the cameras. Will Bill O'Reilly be able to wash the blood out of his hands this time? After all, what's another thousand dead soldiers and a couple more F.U.'s to O'Reilly? And, let's not forget this whopper too. So with that my good C&Lers---I give you another O'Reilly Hall of Shame moment.
O'Reilly: My feeling is that we should allow General Petraeus the resources he needs within a year's time. After that, the Iraqi army must step up and provide their own security with a few American battalions in support. For the future of both the USA and Iraq, that is probably the best course of action in a truly painful situation.
And I agree with emailer Bill who sent in the video and says: O'Reilly: Give Petraeus 1,000 More Dead Soldiers To See If The Surge Will Work
O'Reilly says himself that even though "the USA is likely to lose another thousand killed in the process" we should give Petraeus "the resources he needs within a year's time..." Two more F.U.s and a thousand more dead soldiers, give or take a couple hundred, that's all Bush needs to be able to pass this catastroph*ck onto the next President.
Right before U.S. forces invaded Iraq, O'Reilly made a bold promise on ABC about Iraq's WMDs: "If the Americans go in and overthrow Saddam Hussein and it's clean, he has nothing, I will apologize to the nation, and I will not trust the Bush Administration again, all right?"
Nuff said! Email Bill and call his show (1-877-9-NO-SPIN noon to 2 PM ET, but be polite) and ask him if he ever apologized and will he apologize to the Iraqi people and the American troops when his plan plays out and the Iraqi government is still in shambles. Tell him I sent you.
