Actually, you misunderstood. It wasn't Bill O'Reilly who claimed it was no big deal. It was his guest, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, who said it was no big deal.
But Lt. Col. Ralph Peters' opinion is well-respected and holds a lot of clout on the O'Reilly Factor as a regular contributor.
Bill O'Reilly was just fair and balanced in looking out for the folks. That's his job.
Well, I'm sure he does hold clout in his incestuous relationship!

Story developing in Chicago:
U.S. Attorney General presses to keep evidence secret in Adel Daoud case
October 28, 2013 (WLS)-- The ABC7 I-Team has learned of an unusual move by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in a Chicago terrorism case. The Attorney General is pressing to keep evidence gathered against a suburban teenager secret, claiming that to release it would do "grave damage" to national security.

In one corner we have U.S. officials trying to dodge the diplomatic blowback from spying on foreign leaders. In another corner, we have U.S. intelligence spying on a Chicago teenager, American Adel Daoud, who was later arrested and charged in a terrorism case here. And Monday night, against the backdrop of spies, leaks and espionage, the curious case of the Hillside teenager is attracting personal attention from U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Caught in the large net cast by U.S. intelligence agencies-- the same one that now has foreign leaders crying foul from corners of the world-- was information about a17-year-old high school student from west suburban Hillside.

Indicted in alleged Chicago terror plot
Adel Daoud has been in the federal lockup since being arrested more than a year ago on charges he tried to detonate what he thought was a car bomb in downtown Chicago. The bomb wasn't real and Daoud's accomplice was an FBI plant.
But since the teenager's arrest, prosecutors have revealed that the seed for the case against Mr. Daoud was found by national intelligence agents, and therefore much of the evidence gathered against him is confidential and cannot be provided even to his defense attorneys.

On Monday night, the I-Team has learned that Attorney General Holder has personally weighed in on the top secret case.

In an unusual addendum to this lengthy government filing in Chicago, is a blunt assessment of the "sensitive and classified information" collected on Daoud. Making it public would cause "serious damage...exceptionally grave damage" according to Attorney General Holder, and would "harm the national security."

In what some have described as a potentially precedent-setting case on how far the government can go in spying on its own people, whole pages of this public court filing are blocked out-- as "classified, material redacted."

Prosecutors have said that they do not plan to use evidence gathered by intelligence agencies at Daoud's trial, which is set for next spring. But that secret spy evidence was the way authorities found Mr. Daoud according to investigators, and that is why he and his attorneys want to see it and continue to make the case that they are entitled to it.

Then, how come every time you people post the premiums people are having to pay, you NEVER take into account any subsidy credits? You can't have it both ways. Either it's "other people's money" or it isn't. Make up your mind.

Odd in that the NSA surveillance was/is not limited to just other country's heads of state. How far down the leader hierarchy does it extend? Did it go as far down as the Dennis Kucinichs of the world?

New York doctors are treating ObamaCare like the plague, a new survey reveals.

A poll conducted by the New York State Medical Society finds that 44 percent of MDs said they are not participating in the nation’s new health-care plan.

Another 33 percent say they’re still not sure whether to become ObamaCare providers.

Only 23 percent of the 409 physicians queried said they’re taking patients who signed up through health exchanges.

“This is so poorly designed that a lot of doctors are afraid to participate,” said Dr. Sam Unterricht, president of the 29,000-member organization.“There’s a lot of resistance. Doctors don’t know what they’re going to get paid.”

Three out of four doctors who are participating in the program said they “had to participate” because of existing contractual obligations with an insurer or medical provider, not because they wanted to.

Only one in four “affirmatively” chose to sign up for the exchanges.

Nearly eight in 10 — 77 percent — said they had not been given a fee schedule to show much they’ll get paid if they sign up.

The survey invited doctors to anonymously share opinions about the new health care law, and many took time out of their busy days to vent.

“Obama Care wants to start right away, but who see all these new patients???? Not me,” e-mailed one doc.

Another said,“I plan to retire if this disaster is implemented. This is a train wreck.”

“I refuse to participate in the exchange plans! I am completely opposed to this new law,” said a third respondent.

One doctor recycled the mantra used to attack addictions:“The solution is simple: Just say no.”

One physician was so disgusted, he threatened to taken only cash patients going forward.

“I am seriously considering opting out of all insurance plans including Medicare because of [ObamaCare].”

Some physicians said the pressure on insurance carriers to control costs is leading to rationed care.

“OBAMACARE is a disaster. I have already seen denial of medication, denial of referrals,” one doc said.
