BILL O'REILLY (HOST): You just can't snatch people up, and throw them in a dungeon, no matter if it's Guantanamo or anywhere else, forever, and -- because then you look like you are the oppressor. You know, it's got to be some kind of methodical way to go about this, and there hasn't been, and that's the weakness of it. Last word.

And I'll tell you, compare legacies, Lincoln freed the slaves, Obama freed the terrorists.
