From Think Progress (no comment, this speaks for itself):
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.
So what would Foxâ€™s Bill Oâ€™Reilly do to fix the problem? Kill â€˜em all:
Oâ€™REILLY: I donâ€™t give them any protection. I donâ€™t feel sorry for them. In fact, I probably would have ordered their execution if I had the power. (Listen to Oâ€™Reilly here.)

It’s not only sad, but pathetically ironic that a guy whose network claims to be “fair and balanced” shows himself to be basically a fascist. And I don’t use that word as hyperbole. What else can you call a guy that says, “In fact, I probably would have ordered their execution if I had the power.” I fundamentally do not understand American Citizens like O’Reilly who would not extend the basic rights we demand (in this case Habeas Corupus) and our Revolution was fought for, to non-citizens. President Bush claims that the terrorists hate our freedom and we must fight for it and then denies that basic freedom and any ability to redress their plight to hundreds of people.
I donâ€™t feel sorry for them. In fact, I probably would have ordered their execution if I had the power.
That’s why you’re a talk show host and not in politics, Bill. You’re unelectable.
