Bill O’Reilly doesn’t think there are "many" homeless veterans sleeping on the streets of America. His comments, which were captured by the website BillwasWrong.org, came as he disparaged Democratic Presidential candidate John Edwards, who’s made the indignity of at least 200,000 homeless veterans part of his daily stump speech.

In fact, studies show that nearly 1 out of every four homeless people in America are veterans. Close to 200,000 vets are homeless on any given night --- a whopping 495,000 American veterans lived homeless on the street for at least part of last year.
