Failure to Protect the Borders Led to Deaths

O'Reilly Factor -- Fox News  

    O'Reilly Talking Points (7/22/08): ...Now how many times do we have to go through this? How many? Mayor Newsom is partly responsible for the deaths of those three men. So are the city supervisors so are the folks who continue to support Newsom and his far-left cadre. But we the people are also responsible for not demanding that the government protect us from harm.
    There's no way on this earth that millions of people should enter this country illegally. That is insane. Danielle Bologna is us. She's an American. Her life and the lives of her husband and sons were valuable and should have been protected, but they were not, and no one is taking responsibility. And that's the memo.
O'Reilly Talking Points (6/13/08): ...Homeland security chief Michael Chertoff has done a good job on the border so we'll take him at his word.
    ...Talking points is happy to report the success in the fight against immigration chaos.
American Patrol Comment: Bill O'Reilly should accept part of the responsibility..
