Political Analyst Juan Williams fired from NPR

Political analyst Juan Williams has been fired from National Public Radio for the remarks he made regarding Muslims. Juan Williams made controversial comments about Muslims on the Bill O'Reilly Fox Show.

Williams is quoted as saying on the show "I mean, look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous",.

While referring to suspected Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad, Juan Williams said, "He said the war with Muslims, America's war is just beginning, first drop of blood. I don't think there's any way to get away from these facts."

Williams has not commented on his impending dismissal.
