Bill O'Reilly On Location In Guantanamo

Reported by Deborah - June 6, 2006

O'Reilly announced his plans to travel to Gitmo this week during a segment tonight about the new Army Field Manual on interrogation which omits part of Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions forbidding "humiliating and degrading treatment". O'Reilly told Lt Bill Cowan and Sgt. Major Eric Haney that he planned to interview the Guantanamo interrogators.

Lt. Cowan pointed out that this war was going to continue for 30, 40, even 60 years and it would be better if we didn't proceed with our " hands tied behind our backs". Sgt. Major Haney argued that we shouldn't try to "out brutalize them" claiming , "It will not be a manual on torture."

O'Reilly did the dance of rationalization questioning what defined humiliating and degrading treatment wondering if it was something like "mocking a turban". He stressed that we need to do whatever is best for the country.

comment: We can all rest easy now that Bill O'Reilly is traveling down to Gitmo to get the real story. It will probably be the same kind of truth that Sean Hannity delivered about Terry Schiavo when he camped outside her hospice last year? This could get interesting.
