A Cronkite moment

As long as you repackage "cut and run" as The Crazy People Underestimation it's okay. In other words, couched as thinly-veiled racism, Bill O'Reilly is essentially calling for U.S. withdrawal from Iraq.

Sam Gill writes:


Bill O'Reilly suggested that the United States "hand over everything to the Iraqis as fast as humanly possible" because "[t]here are so many nuts in the country -- so many crazies -- that we can't control them."
As recently as November, according to Gill, "O'Reilly... called those advocating immediate withdrawal from Iraq 'pinheads' and compared them to Hitler appeasers."

If he had either to speak of, I'd say we'd lost O'Reilly's heart and mind... (MediaMatters)
