Bill O'Reilly In Surprise Afghanistan Trip


Bill O'Reilly Pops In For Afghanistan Visit


In a move sure to infuriate his deranged enemies on the left (because everything he does drives them crazy), cable talk king Bill O'Reilly has made a surprise visit to Afghanistan, according to embedded blogger Matt Sanchez and Hot Air.

Paging Keith Olbermann: it's time to find some random reason to name Bill "The Worst Person In The World". Surely, there's got to be some way to demonize O'Reilly here, unless the writers strike has shut down the vitriol factory for the time being.

According to Sanchez, who runs an excellent embed site, Big O didn't appear to ask for any special treatment, receiving standard- issue items upon arrival.

We'll be watching Bill's lefty friends to see how they will manage to find some kind of fault with this.


O'Reilly Visits Troops in Afghanistan

AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) - Bill O'Reilly thinks American troops aren't getting enough support _ from the USO.

After a surreptitious trip to Afghanistan last weekend, the cantankerous Fox News Channel commentator told The Associated Press that he's disappointed that the United Service Organizations "doesn't put anybody out there (in Afghanistan)."

"I went to thank these guys on behalf of me and my audience," he said in an interview from Istanbul, Turkey. "As far as I know, the only famous people in the past year were (country music singer) Toby Keith and me."

The USO _ the organization that famously brought Bob Hope to Vietnam and Marilyn Monroe to Korea _ did not immediately return calls seeking comment. The group has been active sending comedians and professional golfers on entertainment tours to bases in the Persian Gulf.

O'Reilly, who flew to Afghanistan on Friday to visit Camp Eggers in Kabul and Bagram Air Base, has long been upbeat about the U.S. mission there. He has also been an impassioned supporter of the troops, unwilling to recognize any shades of gray when it comes to expressing opinion on the Armed Forces.

O'Reilly said he we went to Afghanistan to get an impression of the state of affairs there, but it was unclear whether he moved about the country without military escort or spent any time outside of the U.S. bases. [...]

  • There IS no such thing as an "excellent embed site" is like saying a "delicious fat-free ice cream" or an "amazingly honest politician"...such an animal does not exist.

    Speaking of animals, hopefully that idiot O'Reilly will find a way to put himself in harm's way. At least then, his propagandist channel could fill his spots with someone that can think and blather at the same time...

    In the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday, I implore any soldiers of conscience (ha!), renegade mercenaries, even any passing "Islamofascists" to stick a fork in HIS arse, because he's BEEN done...

    Just another punk from Long Island.

  • Ohhh I see Bill Oriley is serving again..... hysterical

    Im sure Oriley will cover in detail how 85% of the worlds heroin is comming from Afghanistan, while we are still deeply involved in Afghanistan.

    Is the heroin a sign of victory????

    or is it what I have said all along, more evidence of the conservative drug policy, make sure the drugs get to America, so we can arrest the poor.

    Why have we not done a thing to stop the heroin, if we are such an "anti-drug nation"?????

    Will Oriley go near that topic?

    What you will get is spin like you have never seen before

    he's not sticking anything to the left, we will be laughing our asses off as Bill O'riley spins Afghanistan into a victory!!!!!

  • USO has responded, saying it sent nearly a dozen tours in the past two years -- including one with Al Franken!

    So Brian, is USO a lefty attack machine? Or is O'Reilly simply wrong again?
