In early 2003, Glick signed his name to an advertisement that protested United States-led military action in Afghanistan and compared the deaths from the September 11, 2001 attacks to fatalities incurred in prior U.S. military actions. Political pundit Bill O'Reilly invited Glick on his show, and the two engaged in a heated argument, in which O'Reilly repeatedly mentioned Glick's father, Port Authority worker Barry H. Glick, who had been killed in the attacks. Generally speaking, advertising is the paid promotion of goods, services, companies and ideas by an identified sponsor. ...

Appearance on The O'Reilly Factor

Glick began the interview speaking about his underlying beliefs with regard to the advertisement that he signed. O'Reilly responded stating “I don't think your father would be approving of this” and “I don't think he'd be equating this country as a terrorist nation as you are”. Glick responded “my father thought that Bush's presidency was illegitimate” and that he himself was not stating America was a terrorist nation. This article is becoming very long. ...

When Glick explained why he felt it was immoral to invade Afghanistan, O'Reilly stated, “I don't want to debate world politics with you”.

The following exchange then took place:

GLICK: The reason why you care is because you evoke 9/11…
O'REILLY: Here's why I care.
GLICK: …to rationalize…
O'REILLY: Here's why I care…
GLICK: Let me finish. You evoke 9/11 to rationalize everything from domestic plunder to imperialistic aggression worldwide.
O'REILLY: OK. That's a bunch…
GLICK: You evoke sympathy with the 9/11 families.
O'REILLY: That's a bunch of crap! I've done more for the 9/11 families by their own admission — I've done more for them than you will ever hope to do, so you keep your mouth shut.

O'Reilly told Glick that he had a “warped view of this world and a warped view of this country”. O'Reilly noted that Glick “did not support the war in Afghanistan[;] [he] was against it”. Glick said that he had no desire to “brutalize and further punish” the people of Afghanistan. O'Reilly finished “who killed your father! who killed your father!” to which Glick answered that the 9/11 hijackers killed his father, not the people of Afghanistan. When O'Reilly pointed out that “al-Qaeda people” were trained in Afghanistan, Glick responded by saying that their training was made possible by then Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) George H. W. Bush and that the United States was ultimately responsible. (As Media Matters for America noted, Glick was incorrect in his claim that George H.W. Bush was DCI when U.S. support was given to anti-Soviet Afghan forces. George H.W. Bush served under Gerald Ford — such support did not occur until the subsequent Carter administration, in which Stansfield Turner served as DCI.)[1]) Cecil Rhodes: Cape-Cairo railway project. ...

O'Reilly then stated, “Man, I hope your mom isn't watching this”; as Glick continued to speak, O'Reilly told him to “[s]hut up. Shut up.” Glick responded “Oh, please don't tell me to shut up.” O'Reilly then said that he was ending the discussion “in [sic] respect for your father, who was a Port Authority worker, a fine American, who got killed unnecessarily by barbarians…” Later on, O'Reilly ordered his staff to turn off Glick's microphone, terminating the interview.

Post-show controversy

According to Rolling Stone, Glick claims that O’Reilly said to him after the interview, “Get out of my studio before I tear you to fucking pieces.” Glick also claims to have insulted O’Reilly’s show off-camera.[2] After returning from the commercial break, O'Reilly stated to his audience, “I have to apologize. If I knew that guy Jeremy Glick was going to be like that, I never would have brought him in here, and I feel bad for his family. I really do.” This article is about the magazine. ...

O’Reilly has since stated on at least three occasions [1] that Glick remarked during the interview that George W. Bush orchestrated or had prior knowledge of the 9/11 attacks claiming “Glick was saying without a shred of evidence that President Bush, and Bush the elder, were directly responsible for 9/11” and “He came on this program and accused President Bush of knowing about 9/11 and murdering his own father.” Glick never accused Bush or anyone else specifically of having prior knowledge of or helping plan or execute the attacks.
