O’Reilly Defends Marines, Attacks Murtha

In this clip from ‘The O’Reilly factor,’ O’Reilly debates General Wesley Clark regarding the recent allegations that marines in Iraq slaughtered innocent civilians. O’Reilly chalks the alleged incidents up to stress, and attacks Congressman Murtha for “indicting” the military on national television. At the beginning of the clip, O’Reilly even goes so far as to speculate that maybe Murtha is acting outraged and speaking out as an “I told you so” because he never agreed with the war in the first place.
