O'Reilly: Iraq Violence, Border Chaos Part of a 'Bad Spring for America'
"A bad spring for America" was the subject of Bill O'Reilly's Talking Points memo tonight, as The Factor host laid out the various missteps by the Obama administration. O'Reilly noted that it started with President Obama declining to do anything when Russia seized Crimea.
It got worse with the shocking reports about the lack of medical care for our nation's veterans, and then Obama handed terrorists a "huge victory" by handing over five Taliban leaders in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
He then called out Hillary Clinton for "inexplicably" saying the Taliban commanders do not pose a threat to America.
And now, "Iraq is going down the drain and it's happening on President Obama's watch."
O'Reilly criticized the president for refusing to support the Iraqi government with airstrikes against advancing Islamic militants.
"Now we're seeing the results of the president's decision to get out totally. To be fair, most Americans wanted out as well. But you can't run foreign policy based on the whims of the public," said O'Reilly.
Finally, he wrapped up by pointing out "another disaster" at the Mexican border, as a huge influx of children is overwhelming the Border Patrol. He said families are sending children across because they believe "if they can get here, they can stay here."
"Weren't we told the border is secure? Wasn't that the basis to go forward with comprehensive immigration reform? The border is not secure. It's still chaotic 13 years after 9/11. It's unbelievable," said O'Reilly.
