On Friday, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade defended Bill O'Reilly's recent Whoopi-walkout-inducing comments on "The View" ("Muslims killed us on 9/11") by explaining that "not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim." The remark generated enough uproar that Kilmeade felt it necessary to make this terse apology today:

On the show on Friday, I was talking about Bill O’Reilly appearance on "The View" and I said this: “Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims.” Well, I misspoke. I don’t believe all terrorists are Muslims. I’m sorry about that, if I offended or hurt anybody’s feelings. But that’s it.
