Bill O'Reilly: Kidnap Harry Reid And Nancy Pelosi, And Waterboard Pelosi

Bill O'Reilly suggested that the CIA should kidnap Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and perhaps even waterboard Pelosi, at a stop on his "Bold & Fresh" speaking tour on Saturday.

From Media Matters' exclusive audio of the Fox News pundit's comments:

If [President Obama] did hire me... Don't tell anybody, okay, I said this please? But I'd get Leon [Panetta] in... And I'd say, Leon, look... You gotta kidnap Pelosi and Reid. Don't hurt them. Don't hurt them, okay? But take them to an undisclosed location. No waterboarding, well maybe with Nancy.

O'Reilly's banter was received with laughs by an audience that paid to see him and Glenn Beck on stage together on their nationwide tour.

"You gotta get [Pelosi and Reid] out of here, okay?" O'Reilly quipped. "So that's what I would do, I'd kidnap Reid and Pelosi. Do you think that would be impeachment, do you think?"
