After arriving back in D.C. from a long, but deeply gratifying week in California, it was time to get back to work.
Monday morning I interviewed former Vice-President Dick Cheney, alongwith my co-host John McCaslin.
I asked Mr. Cheney whether the Obama administration is withdrawing from the battlefield too soon, or whether the Iraqis are ready to assume the leadership in providing safety and security for their country.
Cheney expressed deep concern and the Washington times reports.
"...Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Monday said he is concerned about U.S. forces withdrawing from Iraqi cities within 24 hours.
Mr. Cheney told The Washington Times' "America's Morning News" radio show that he is a strong believer in Gen. Ray Odierno, commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, and that the general is doing what needs to be done.
"But what he says concerns me: That there is still a continuing problem. One might speculate that insurgents are waiting as soon as they get an opportunity to launch more attacks."
More than 250 people have died in Iraq during the past week in attacks and bombings, which appear designed to shake the government's confidence and reignite sectarian fighting.
Much of the violence is in northeastern Baghdad, where hostile acts have occurred about once every other day. "
Later, CNN's liberal commentator Paul Begala attacked the Vice-President for appearing on America's Morning News, my new syndicated radio program heard across the United States.
Outrageously, Begala suggested that Cheney demeaned himself by answering our questions, and then accused him of practically murdering 4,000 American servicemen and women who died fighting the war in Iraq.
It appears that the liberal elite media is getting nervous that America's Morning News is making, breaking and driving the news cycle- just as we promised when we debuted over a week ago.
