    It’s mightier than a sword! Therefore, manly! Or something.

    He’s counting the War on Christmas four times?

    He’s probably counting both sides of the Falkland Islands war and El Salvador, both of which he reported on…from Buenos Aires.

    I lasted until the 1’21″ mark where O’Reilly interrupted Weinstein’s answer to complain that Weinstein refused to answer the question!

    Cut him off. He’s a jerk.

    This clip is hilarious. Particularly when O’Reilly calls Weinstein a jerk. My jaw just fell open.

    Yes, but they were all rather small wars. Allowed to looked even smaller when seen from the great distance away that he maintained. Soldiers speak first hand of the sound of gunfire inches overhead. O’Reilly’s first hand experience of war is limited to the sound of jingoism and propaganda emerging from his mouth. Of course, even coming from his own mouth, much of it was over his head.

    “Inside Edition” covered four wars? He certainly never covered one while at Fox Nuisance.

    Even Sean “Inanity” Hannity got closer to a war zone than O’Reilly, and Hannity was wetting his pants on the flight into the Green Zone in Baghdad.

    You know, it just struck me that Mr. Bill’s statement, “I’ve covered four wars with a pen.” is actually about as cowardly a statement as he could make given his real history. He is trying to claim the bravery of reporters that were IN the war zone facing live fire, while he sat pontificating from his office in the US.

    As usual, Mr. Bill is a complete blowhard.

    It’s funny when the King of Bloviators uses that word against others.

    Bill-o isn’t fit to shine the shoes of Richard Engel. Unless, of course, the room service in his Buenos Aires hotel really sucked.

    And as far as bloviating goes, I’d say it takes one to know one but a) Mikey wasn’t bloviating and b) when all you ever do on the air is bloviate, I guess it’s harder to recognize.

    If he has one of those tri-color click pens does that count as an arsenal?
