BRIAN’S OPENING THOUGHTS
Brian is shocked at the stupidity of the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s three friends, who instead of calling the police upon entering Tsarnaev’s apartment, decided to hide crucial evidence. He looks at the unraveling details, and sees how this will affect immigration reform.
FOX News Correspondent Adam Housley talked to Brian about how he got the exclusive interview about the Benghazi terror attack with the unnamed Special Ops whistleblower. He explained that the whistleblower was more frightened to talk to Housley than by anything he had done overseas at his job. “These guys are afraid that they’re going to be punished. Some of them had been threatened directly that I know of. Others have been indirectly threatened with demotion or worse, so these guys are worried,” Housley said.
Brian’s co-host on FOX & Friends, Steve Doocy, weighed in on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s three friends that hid evidence in the young terrorist’s apartment and were arrested last night. Doocy is also curious to see how much of a decline in admission UMass Dartmouth is going to have next year.
FOX News Sunday host Chris Wallace talked to Brian about what he makes of the three new arrests coming out of the Boston bombing. Wallace also weighed in on the President’s press conference this week and on the Benghazi whistleblower Adam Housley interviewed.
Ken Blanchard, co-author of Trust Works! Four Keys to Building Lasting Relationships, talked to Brian about why he decided to write his latest book on trust. “People are talking about that so often,” Blanchard said. He went on to explain his co-author’s “ABCD trust model.” “The first area that people have a sense of trust with you is your ability. Do you have the skills and experience to do what you’ve been asked to do?” ‘B,’ he explained stands for “Believable”; ‘C’ stands for “Connectedness”; and ‘D’ stands for “Dependability.”
Mark Lijek, one of the six rescued by the Argo mission in 1979, talked to Brian about the special Argo episode of the Nat Geo series Locked Up Abroad. He also talked about his experience in Iran and compared it to the Academy Award-winning film. “It’s a great film, I love it. It’s a lot scarier; fortunately what we lived was not as scary as the movie. I don’t know that I would have survived the movie if it actually had been that bad,” Lijek said.
Dallas Green, a senior advisor to the general manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, talked to Brian about his book The Mouth that Roared: My Six Outspoken Decades in Baseball. “I just wanted to have my grandkids understand… my business and what I had done in my life and that was really the thrust of the book,” Green explained. He also talked about his childhood and his father, an alcoholic who eventually lost his business. “It was just one of those things. He got hooked on the booze and lost his business and was always a smoker,” Green said.
