Bill O’Reilly gets burned October 19, 2011 – Tags:

 At a remote location in Afghanistan a Commander ordered a soldier to burn 20 copies of Bill O’Reilly’s book Pinheads and Patriots.

As one of the soldiers involved summed it up:

Some jerk sent us two boxes of this awful book (SPOILER ALERT: George Washington — Patriot; George Soros — Pinhead) instead of anything soldiers at a remote outpost in Afghanistan might need, like, say, food or soap. Just burned the whole lot of them on my Commander’s orders.

Acknowledging “people’s squeamishness about setting books ablaze.” the soldier went on to reiterate that they were stationed in an “extraordinarily remote location” and sending them back or making room to carry them was not an option.

How in the world they got there in the first place and more importantly who sent them are questions worth an answer.
