Diana West joined me on Freedom Radio to discuss her just released book American Betrayal; The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character.
“American Betrayal is America’s lost history, a chronicle that pits Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight David Eisenhower, and other American icons who shielded overlapping Communist conspiracies against the investigators, politicians, defectors, and others (including Senator Joseph McCarthy) who tried to tell the American people the truth.”
Coleman Ruiz of Carry the Load deployed 10 times as a U.S. Navy SEAL. I spoke with him on Freedom Radio this morning as he walked from midtown Manhattan to Ground Zero on the second day of a 2,000-mile national relay. Listen up and remember those who have sacrificed so much for our Nation.

John Rosenthal joined me on Freedom Radio to discuss his book, The Jihadist Plot; The Untold Story of Al-Qaeda and the Libyan Rebellion. In it, he describes how the Obama administration and NATO “changed sides in the War on Terror” in Libya.
Mr. Rosenthal documents the clear evidence of top rebel leaders who trained with and fought alongside al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Iraq, had ties to the Madrid train bombings and both the fertilizer plot and London subway bombings, and had been detained by the U.S. “Indeed, there is strong reason to believe that Ansar al-Sharia is not so much a distinct militia as a movement cutting across virtually all the Eastern Libya militias, including Libya Shield.” Not only did the head of Libya Shield in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 previously fight against U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, the forces he led at the decisive battle for Sirte fought under the flag of al Qaeda.
John Rosenthal is a European-based journalist and political analyst who specializes in EU politics and transatlantic security issues. He has been a regular contributor to National Review Online, Policy Review magazine, The Weekly Standard, World Affairs journal, and leading European publications.
The Jihadist Plot; The Untold Story of Al-Qaeda and the Libyan Rebellion is now on sale in paperback at Amazon, on Kindle, and at Barnes & Noble on Nook.
At 12:17 PM, on February 26, 1993, Islamic terrorists detonated a 1,300-pound bomb in the parking garage beneath the World Trade Center. Ed Smith joined me on Freedom Radio this morning in remembrance of his wife Monica. She and their soon to be born first child, a son they planned to name Eddie, were killed that day.

CIA officer Jose Rodriguez oversaw the enhanced interrogations of captured al Qaeda detainees until his retirement in 2007. He served as a station chief four times, to include for all of Latin America, prior to becoming the head of the Counterterrorism Center in May 2002 and, later, Director of the National Clandestine Service. Along with former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow, he co-authored ‘Hard Measures; How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives’.
Mr. Rodriguez joined me on Freedom Radio to discuss the destruction of much of al Qaeda’s organization. Mr. Rodriguez says, “Enhanced interrogations techniques led to the demise of bin Laden.” In the clip below, he explains how and sets the record straight for CIA Director-nominee John Brennan (and Senators Levin, Feinstein, and McCain) on courier Ahmed al-Kuwaiti. *

Note: Ahmed al-Kuwaiti was also known as Shaykh Abu Ahmed, Arshad Khan, Mohammed Arshad, and Sheikh Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti.
This morning, I interviewed Richard Thompson, the President of the Thomas More Law Center. He is representing a highly decorated soldier in a fight to defend himself against accusations of anti-Muslim bigotry. I asked Mr. Thompson to confirm when the course was started and how LTC Dooley came to instruct ‘Perspectives of Islam and Islamic Radicalization’ at the DOD’s Joint Forces Staff College. In part, he replied:
“It was a 2004 course, when it started. They asked him [in 2011] to step in as an instructor. He took his position and did, as you indicated, an outstanding job based upon the evaluation he got from a Brigadier General. The guest lecturers that he brought in were all approved prior to him even coming into that course [emphasis added his] as an instructor. The class syllabus was all approved. There was nothing extraordinary about the content of his class.
“But one individual — who never really attended a lecture by LTC Dooley — got upset, reported it outside of the chain-of-command, it got into the Department of Defense political operations, and that’s what started it all.
“And the concern I have is this: once we indicated our representation of LTC Dooley, we have gotten several other officers who indicate the same thing happened to them. They disciplined a Muslim soldier, that soldier made a complaint, and that was the end of the officer’s career. … We should have learned our lesson in 2009 with the Fort Hood massacre.”
Please listen to the full interview and read all about it.
All Muslims do not wish to subjugate others or attack non-believers. Yet America’s decades-long enemy reads and gets its ideology from the same book. Many Islamists use or aide violence to achieve their goal, a world caliphate. Millions wage political, economic, and cultural warfare against the United States and western civilization.
It is national suicide for the American people to not understand the ideology driving the Islamists, why they seek the destruction of our liberty through the implementation of sharia law. And it is a form of fratricide to deny our war fighters the knowledge they need to identify the enemy we send them to face and fight on the battlefield.

Ryan Mauro of RadicalIslam.org and WorldThreats.com was my guest yesterday on Freedom Radio. We discussed Iran, Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Benghazi.
I asked Ryan about media reporting on the crazy and threatening comments made by Iranian President Ahmadinejad. In part, he replied:
“The President of Egypt Mohammed Morsi will say the same things and no one covers it and no one freaks out. He’s still just a moderate according to the media and the so-called experts in the Obama administration.”
Here’s the audio of the interview:
Liz Cheney was my guest yesterday on Freedom Radio.
As part of our discussion of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, I asked her about the attacks upon our embassies in Benghazi and Cairo. In part, Ms. Cheney said:
“At a minimum, you’ve got to say that it was highly irresponsible — and I would say untruthful — for our ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, to go on television on Sunday morning and assure the American people that “We’re confident everything that’s going on across the region is spontaneous. What happened in Benghazi is a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islam film.” She could not have known that. … I think the American people deserve to know the whole truth here, and I suspect we will once this investigation is completed.”

Reports by Fox News here, here and here, along with reports by Tom Joscelyn at The Weekly Standard and Bill Roggio at The Long War Journal, show the wheels are fast falling off the Obama administration’s cart, the one carrying water for Islamist propaganda.
