Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said on Wednesday night that President Obama had “nothing to do” with the 2011 killing of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
O’Reilly made the remarks on “The O’Reilly Factor” after daring guest Jessica Ehrlich, a Democratic strategist, to name “one accomplishment” of Obama’s “that has made this country better overseas.”
“Well, let’s say Osama bin Laden — the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden,” Ehrlich replied.
“He had nothing to do with that!” O’Reilly exploded. “That was US intel and the Navy SEALs taking him out. He just said ‘Do it.'”
“It happened under his watch,” Ehrlich said.
“C’mon. So what?” O’Reilly said. “If that’s what he’s got after six years, that’s dismal.”
