• O'REILLY: Our intelligence communities will find him.

    KELLY: So far, so bad.

    O'REILLY: Well, I believe they will. They'll find him. And then they ask the government where he's living, wherever he is living. And once he goes to Tora Bora with our friend Osama, OK?

    KELLY: Right. To extradite him here.

    O'REILLY: To extradite him here. That's the way to do it.

    KELLY: Well, I think that's right, because what we could do in that instance if we got our hands on him and arrested him wherever he may be, is we would exert our political pressure on that country to --

    O'REILLY: Absolutely.

    KELLY: -- to send him back to the United States.

    O'REILLY: Right.

    KELLY: But, you know, you don't know what the policies are going to be. It's presumably since it's not a death penalty charge, there wouldn't be a huge issue in sending him to the United States. But it's going to be a tough thing to track the guy down and then --

    O'REILLY: But let's let that play out. I mean, I want the process --

    KELLY: Well, I think they are. They are. For the first time, it sounds like they are.

    Listen, Julian Assange has not been a mystery to our government. He - - as of August --

    O'REILLY: Well, why wasn't he indicted the last time?

    KELLY: Well, they have been looking at it.

    O'REILLY: Oh, they're looking at it. See, this is what bothers me. I'm not being partisan here and I want everybody to understand it. And you tell me if you think I'm being partisan, OK?

    I'm just talking as an American. The guy does it in the spring, all right?

    KELLY: Right.

    O'REILLY: OK. What you're saying is they could have convened a grand jury then, presented their evidence, got an indictment, all right? Then, they don't do it. Then he does it again now at a much bigger level.

    KELLY: Yes.

    O'REILLY: All right? Embarrassing the country because going forward, who is going to trust the United States State Department?

    KELLY: That's the problem.

    O'REILLY: No one.

    KELLY: That's exactly the problem.

    O'REILLY: Because whatever they say, it's going to find itself on a website.


    KELLY: Wind up on the front page of the "New York Times."

    O'REILLY: OK. So, Holder once again, doesn't do his job, in my opinion.

    KELLY: Well, what they say, and listen, I don't -- we don't know all the back channels, but what I read online is that they have been working with foreign governments to try to find this guy. Sweden is one that named him --

    O'REILLY: So, they don't know where he is.

    KELLY: -- trying to put some pressure. No.

    O'REILLY: I can't believe my pal Leon Panetta, the head of the CIA, can't find him.

    KELLY: He's very well-protected. He's very well-protected.

    O'REILLY: I can't -- I can't just believe they can't find him.

    All right. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Now, the guy who allegedly leaked the first one, Manning --

    KELLY: Yes, Manning.

    O'REILLY: -- he is in deep, deep trouble.

    KELLY: I think he is in trouble.

    O'REILLY: But I'll submit to you it's not just him. There's got to be other people leaking this stuff.
