O’Reilly Says It’s Time to Leave Iraq
Posted on Feb 23, 2006
Media Matters: During the February 20 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Bill O’Reilly suggested that the United States “hand over everything to the Iraqis as fast as humanly possible” because “[t]here are so many nuts in the country—so many crazies—that we can’t control them.” O’Reilly then claimed that the “big mistake” was actually “the crazy-people underestimation.”
As Media Matters for America has documented, during a November 30, 2005, appearance on NBC’s Today, O’Reilly called those advocating immediate withdrawal from Iraq “pinheads” and compared them to Hitler appeasers.
