"O’Reilly: I Would Execute Everyone At Gitmo"

The United States is holding more than 500 foreign detainees at the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. These men have been deprived of basic legal and civil rights, and reports of abuse, torture and grotesque mistreatment are rampant. Many, if not most, of the detainees have been there nearly four years, yet in all that time, only four have been accused of any crime. And even then, military prosecutors recently charged the military trials against those four have been rigged.

The entire mess is playing into the hands of the terrorists, who now use Guantanamo Bay as a recruiting tool.

So what would Fox’s Bill O’Reilly do to fix the problem? Kill ‘em all:

O’REILLY: I don’t give them any protection. I don’t feel sorry for them. In fact, I probably would have ordered their execution if I had the power. (Listen to O’Reilly here.)

UPDATE: Crooks and Liars has the video.
