Bill O'Reilly, Historian ...

From the Oct. 23 edition of Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor:

HOST BILL O'REILLY: Isn't it interesting that Iraq now -- this Muslim country that 10 years ago nobody even heard of, all right, is now impacting on how we live in America.

FORMER HOUSE SPEAKER NEWT GINGRICH: Right.

Funny, the history most Americans remember includes the United States leading a coalition against Iraq in Operation Desert Storm in 1991.

Maybe O'Reilly thinks that Americans heard of Iraq 15 years ago, but then had collective amnesia 10 years ago?

He must have bought one of those online degrees from Dumfukistan U.

He's actually touching on a very uncomfortable truth, but it's not something a guy like O'Reilley would ever consciously accept.

In the normal scheme of things, the average American would never have even heard of Iraq- much less support the idea of invading it. And yet here we are, occupying a country that only a few Americans- oil industry people for the most part- have a keen interest in. No WMDs, no terrorism connections, and yet there we are. And the oil industry is raking in the cash.

It certainly *is* interesting, Bill.
