O’Reilly on His Visit to Afghanistan

By Chris Ariens 

The AP‘s Jeremy Herron caught up with FNC’s Bill O’Reilly in Istanbul today. O’Reilly is on his way home from Afghanistan where he met with troops over the weekend.

Herron writes, “the cantankerous Fox News Channel commentator told The Associated Press that he’s disappointed that the United Service Organizations ‘doesn’t put anybody out there (in Afghanistan).'”

“I went to thank these guys on behalf of me and my audience,” said O’Reilly. “As far as I know, the only famous people in the past year were (country music singer) Toby Keith and me.”

A Fox News spokesperson tells TVNewser the troop interviews O’Reilly conducted will air at a later date.
