Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has written several best-selling books. However, this time he believes his content may land him in jail.
O’Reilly just revealed he’s set to release a new book titled “Killing the Killers: The Secret War Against Terrorists” that the author claims contains “classified information” that could land him in jail, the Washington Examiner reported. This book is will be the twelfth in his “Killing” series of historical books.
“I just finished writing a book … full of classified information that nobody has seen,” O’Reilly told News Max hosts Lindsay Keith and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. “I was lucky enough to be able to get it,” O’Reilly said.
“I’ll probably wind up in prison for printing it,” he added. “But I think Americans need to know that we are safer, and the reason is technology,” O’Reilly concluded.
The publisher promises that the book “narrates America’s intense global war against extremists who planned and executed not only the 9/11 attacks, but hundreds of others in America and around the world, and who eventually destroyed entire nations in their relentless quest for power.” O’Reilly and co-author Martin Dugard “create an unstoppable account of the most important war of our era.”
Like his other books in the series, O’Reilly’s new work takes a fresh look at the historical event as he reveals the circumstances surrounding the terrorist attacks on 9/11 and the measures that have kept Americans safe since. This year marks the 20th anniversary of that horrific day even as there is renewed worry about another attack.
President Joe Biden abruptly pulled troops out of Afghanistan and essentially turned the country back over to the Taliban, Fox News reported. With Islamic extremists back in charge, even the Pentagon has admitted that losing the war has made it more difficult to identify threats making this new book as important as ever.
It’s unclear whether O’Reilly has broken any laws with his work, but it does hint at the kind of content the book reveals. What led up to 9/11 and how Americans have remained safe since is a story that must be preserved and retold — and there are few authors more qualified to do it than O’Reilly.
