Medea Benjamin on O'Reilly Factor: I put my life on the line for Afghan women
Wednesday, October 7, 2009 | Kristinn

Posted on 10/07/2009 5:38:23 PM PDT by kristinn

Bill O'Reilly carried on his love affair with Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin on The Factor tonight with a smoochy discussion with her about her recent trip to Afghanistan.

Benjamin spewed her talking points about how bad America's involvement in Afghanistan is, with O'Reilly cooing to Medea how "sincere" but misguided he thinks she is. Even when Benjamin said she "put her life on the line" for Afghan women by making the trip to Kabul last week, O'Reilly didn't say a word to her about her outrageous mockery of our troops who truly put their lives on the line there.

Benjamin, who has allied herself with al Qaeda in Iraq, Hamas and Hezbollah and state sponsors of terrorism Saddam Hussein, Cuba and Iran against America, Israel, and the freedom-seeking peoples of Iraq and Afghanistan, surely had nothing to fear from terrorists on her trip.

However, Benjamin and Code Pink got tripped up in Afghanistan by the public pronouncements of Afghan women who were adament that they want American troops to stay and finish the job because they fear a takeover by the Taliban.

Code Pink has been forced to modify their position on the war to take in to account their public spanking by the Afghan women.

Even when being critical of Benjamin, such as saying he wouuld take Gen. McChrystal's views on the war over Medea's, O'Reilly was so sweet about it with her it makes one wonder if there's a little David Letterman action going on here. How else does one explain O'Reilly's sweetheart treatment of someone who has the blood of our soldiers on her hands.

That’s why I don’t watch O’Reilly. That is also the reason Beck is gaining ground into O’Reilly’s turf.

O’Reilly: “And why should we believe you instead of a military general?”

Pinko: “Because I said so. You know, me. *I* said it.”

As usual it’s about them. They don’t want to know the truth even when it’s right before them. Nothing to see here.

BOR probably got his ‘memo’ from this ‘Administration’ awhile ago.

The Deathcare ‘legislation’
THe ‘unknown’ decision on Afghanistan
The Axelrod meeting with Ailes
Rove’s Twitter account going out for a while
DC telecon lines down various places yesterday
Rush’s phones going dead for a few minutes yesterday
The move ‘toward’ funding Afghanistan funding
The CBO ‘lowered’ estimate of costs
Now, word about the GOP ‘folding’
BOR folds

Its a good thing that Benjamin is a woman with an apparatus. If it were not for that, she’d be absolutely worthless. I’ve seen smarter dogs than Ms. Benjamin. A brain eating zombie would starve to death if he tried to use her brain for energy.

The woman looks like a basset hound, a naive one at that.
The bounds of her ignorance is startling!

I thought he did too hercuroc. He counted off the points on his fingers and told her why she was wrong, asked her if she though she knew more than the General, told her she was wrong about Iraq, how the Talaban would come back and terrorize women, etc.

Perhaps some don’t like him being polite while doing all that??

Good evening. I hope you are doing well.

It was sooo difficult to watch Medea Benjamin. Imho she should not be ridiculed, because I believe she has a disease. I believe it's called cranium rectumist.

Medusa Benjamin is not a woman. I don’t know what that thing is, but it’s not female. It’s some other kind of specie still to be determined by science.

Put that POS in the middle of the war and let her find her way out.

He treats her with kid gloves when he ‘corrects’ her. He’s never gone after her for being allied with terrorist groups and state sponsors of terrorism. He once cut off the mic of a Democrat in opposition to Medea and then praised Medea as one of his favorite guests.

[then praised Medea as one of his favorite guests.]

Hmm, I didn’t see that. Perhaps she is a personal friend of his family, who knows. I was just saying that he did dispute her but was polite about it. I think that is true.
I’m certainly not ‘for her’, lol.

O’reilly only asks tough questions of conservatives. Leftie nutjobs like medea get the kid gloves.

unbelievable that ‘they’ allowed this cretin in country

unbelievable if they provided it with any security

Soldiers need to remember that there IS an enemy
at home and who they are .
This is one of the biggest.

Medea is no different than the ones that provided
for an NVA / KR win in SEA

I'm very close to someone who keeps wondering about the Letterman action between those two, or at least he would like some Letterman action. Any way you go about it he looks like a fool when he has Medea on there. I cringe when I hear that she is being interviewed by O’Reilly or Hannity.
