The Ignorant (or Revisionist?) Bill O’Reilly

Bill O’Reilly demonstrates a deliberate attempt to rewrite history:

Ignorance is Strength

So it looks like Bill O’Reilly is a moron when it comes to recent history or he is deliberately trying to make us look good.  While I do not think that the 9/11 attacks were justified, the Federal government does not have its hands clean when it comes to foreign policy.  The fact is, we were occupying Muslim nations before the Iraq or Afghanistan invasions and we were routinely flying over Iraq as part of the UN Resolutions after the first Gulf War.  The various trade embargoes imposed on Iraq meant that children were not able to receive medical treatments that would have saved their lives (on a side note, trade embargoes only affect the citizens and strengthen the dictators as it gives them something to rally around).  And let us not forget the time when President Bill Clinton bombed Iraq to distract the public of his ongoing oval office blowjob scandal.

And he wonders why Ron Paul will not go on his show….

  1. I wouldn't overplay the embargoes thing. Yeah, the U.S. had one, but Iraq still maintained healthy trade relations with Europe - France, Italy and Germany in particular.

    In this way, it's likely there was plenty of food and medicine available from them. I'm more inclined to believe - as it had been reported in the past - that Hussein restricted access to medicine on purpose to score political points. I think the UN scandal food for whatever program was involved and also steeped in astonishing corruption; it included Annan's son.

    I could be wrong of course.
