Skip to comments.Bill O’Reilly Tears Into Brian Williams For Giving Obama A ‘Pass’ On Libya
Posted on 10/26/2012 6:12:55 PM PDT by markomalley
Bill OReilly opened his show tonight asking if recent events in Libya will lose the election for President Obama. OReilly appeared to be losing patience with how Obama keeps dodging questions about what happened in Libya and who told which administration officials what to say. OReilly also blamed the media, and Brian Williams in particular, for not actually bringing these issues up in interviews with the president.
OReilly brought up a report that said urgent requests for backup in the Benghazi consulate were not followed up on by the CIA. During a radio interview, Obama claimed that he was not personally aware of any security requests. OReilly sighed and criticized Obama for not being able to explain exactly what happened in Libya. He could not comprehend why the president is still unable to clarify the situation, considering how much misinformation was put out by his administration.
Of course, the media has not been very quick to hold Obamas feet to the fire on this one. OReilly brought up Williams interview of the president and how the NBC newsman took a pass on actually grilling Obama on what happened in Libya. After playing the video of Obama talking with Williams about Libya, OReilly sighed again and said the president is just regurgitating the same answer about Libya, criticizing Williams for not following up.
Instead of citing some inconsistencies from the administration about the Libyan attack, Mr. Williams dropped the subject, totally dropped it, after one misleading question [and] implied that American intelligence stands behind the theory that the Libyan attack was, quote, spontaneous. That was not a fact, but was presented as such by Brian Williams.
OReilly reiterated that the media needs to actually grill the Obama administration on what happened in Libya, instead of giving him a pass on a major foreign security issue. He said the most important question any journalist can ask Obama is
Watch the video below, courtesy of Fox News:

go to a gas station, or any place which sells papers and you will not see Libya mentioned , it;s as if Libya does not exist/
ABC is getting hammered about their bias and the other outlets too
First I’ve heard about them killing 80 terrorists. Was that reported or were you just theorizing or what?
BOR will always be a d-bag in my eyes. He gave dems a pass on his show so he could interview zero and gave him a pass. He has as much or as little integrity as zero. He just wants to be, once again, on the right side of this election.
I can’t believe anyone watches him anymore.
The next step Obama takes is to go on TV, look earnestly into the camera, and tall Americans to take a deep breath.
O’Really assured Americans that O’Muslim is not a radical and is loyal to America.
All these turds are brainwashed, treasonous globalists. They think America can not be broken by our enemies within and they don’t care if America is broken. They can pretend they are “citizens of the world” until they realize they have to live in the world created by human, freedom hating globalists. There is no escape once they bring down the US.
It has been reported during the day. On Fox just a while ago they were talking about the 30 people rescued from the area by the Seals. The battled raged for over 7 hours, the 2 seals disobeyed orders to NOT go there. Their actions allowed them to help about 30 people escape. The death toll on the terrorists that I have seen today ranges from 60-80, I chose the higher number. Those numbers were gleaned from articles posted here on FR.
BOR gave Obama a pass in his interview four years ago. Pathetic.
BOR still wont add it up. POTUS called the shot and decided to fold. Didnt want to risk a Carter/Iran failure.
Agree. O Reilly was “ shucked and jived” by Obama.
Now he wants to piggybacked on Katherine Herridges sources and work on this topic
Agree on your assessment . Barrynis the big fish in this whole issue.
this article mentions the 30 people.
Exactly! Who takes this pedophile protecting, sexual predator, book pushing lurch seriously? O’Reilly makes Geraldo look credible. This doofus thinks people fear him & his Trump wanna-be comb over. O’Reilly you were over four years ago. Find trump, hold his hand & both you frauds skip away into the sunset.
Thanks so much. I have not been watching any TV today and been tied up so welcome you taking the trouble to fill me in. Apparently a lot has been breaking just today.
O’Reilly missed the point about sending in military aircraft. The State Department flew an unarmed propellor driven World War Two era DC-3 into the Benghazi airport. The military needed more information? Ask the DC-3 pilot what the flak was like.
“Was it a tough approach into the Benghazi airport?”
“A little. The copilot dropped his pretzels and we didn’t want to mash them into the carpet.”
Right—but did you notice Gerald Rivers (real name) being a total a**wipe and Obozo lick-spittle?
I remember Williams saluting the turd, then bowing to him before an interview. Right. Like that is going to shed light on the real events.
Maybe you are right, as it would explain the otherwise inexplicable non action of the White House. That is the real question, why would they have behaved in the manner that they did, when it made no sense, and only served to hurt them?
So true, the Generals pledge an oath to the Constitution, not 0bama
