O'Reilly Observes Parallel Between Obama and Bin Laden True

Reported by Deborah - October 14, 2008 -

Last night,10/13, after O'Reilly delivered another toxic TPM defending McCain's dirty campaign tactics, he made an exceptionally vile observation about Barack Obama and Osama Bin Laden. Mary Katherine Ham and Juan Williams had their regular speculation session about Obama throwing around the usual negative stuff until O'Reilly took it to a new level. with video

BOR asked Williams about the "guy" in Virginia pretending that he had no real details. Williams, also without details, offered a vague explanation that he " Barack Obama and Osama Bin Laden on the same team".

TIME reported this past weekend that a McCain campaign organizer Jeffery Fredericks while giving volunteers their talking points offered this diddy about comparing Obama to Bin Laden "Both have friends that bombed the Pentagon," he said. "That is scary."

O'Reilly played dumb about the details because he didn't want to reveal that the McCain campaign is prepping their volunteers with such filfth. When Williams started to criticize the comment O'Reilly interrupted him with this observation.

" You guys are too theoretical tonight. OK, so the guy says in Virginia there's a parallel between Barack Obama and Osama Bin Laden because they both associated with terrorists who bombed the Pentagon. OK, historically if you want to parse it, that's true."

When Williams objected O'Reilly used the excuse that Ayers is "unrepentant" making the charge against Obama somehow fine. McCain's campaign was finally forced to disavow the comment but Frederick stands by it and is probably still using it in his volunteer training sessions.
