“The O’Reilly Factor” has received a number of letters from military families whose loved ones were killed or wounded in Iraq, asking why we sacrificed so much if Iraq is going to become a terror state.
Tonight, Bill O’Reilly said that the militants who seized parts of Iraq are part of a nationwide terror movement, with an al Qaeda affiliate striking in Kenya this weekend.
“These people are hell-bent on imposing a fanatical strain of Islam on the entire world,” he said.

While Iraq has been poorly managed since President Barack Obama pulled out all U.S. troops, O’Reilly said “our initial sacrifice was not in vain, in fact, it was noble.”
O’Reilly said the U.S. defeated Saddam Hussein, the embodiment of evil. In Afghanistan, he said we are giving the people a chance to throw off oppression of the Taliban. During the Vietnam War, he said we fought communists who murdered millions of people once the U.S. left Southeast Asia.
