The reported kidnapping of three American contractors in Baghdad puts the US
involvement in Iraq exactly where Washington doesn’t want it–on the front pages of the papers and here on KQV Radio in Pittsburgh a few minutes ago. We know the White House listens to our live broadcasts on Monday mornings, because President Obama practically quoted me in his State of the Union address:
“The Middle East is going through a transformation that will play out for a generation, rooted in conflicts that date back millennia…. Masses of fighters on the back of pickup trucks…do not threaten our national existence.”
In this 4-minute broadcast, we also talk about the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal and the curious response of critics who seem to want the deal to fail. The result of that would be a nuclear-armed Iran, and is it really worth that to be able to say, “I told you so”?
