Radio Buzz: Occupy Wall Street Protesters – What Do They Want? 10 Years Since Start of Op. Enduring Freedom

The Radio Buzz. The top talk radio stories of the day.

Audio clip:

Occupy Wall Street protests are sweeping the nation.

And in New York, it's getting costly!

"Millions in dollars. Two million dollars in overtime that the taxpayers are having to foot the bill."

So what do the protesters want?

"In all seriousness that is the concern here, is that there's no end game to this."

We'll have to wait and see if they really come up with any demands. I heard one protester mention that she didn't want to eat ramen noodles any more.

Buzzing right along.

Ten years since Operation Enduring Freedom was launched in Afghanistan.

"Well, you know certainly we went in there 10 years ago with two intents. One: to end the rule of the radical Islamic Taliban, and two: to keep them from providing safe haven to al Qaeda."

That was Pentagon Senior Strategist and National Security and Foreign Affairs Analyst Lt. Col Bob Maginnis speaking with Amy and Ed at KFBK in Sacramento.

Since then, we've seen some progress.

"Since that time of course, we've killed a lot of al Qaeda. Al Qaeda has not struck our country. There have been some I think some reasonably good outcomes. You know the economy there, there is one. There wasn't one before. The Taliban is incredibly unpopular. There are a host of other things that are on the upbeat."

The goal of the White House is to withdraw 10,000 troops at the end of this year, and an additional 23,000 by the summer of 2012. That's not too far from now, Bob.

"But on the down side, which is really trending into I think a stalemate is that you don't have a legitimate government in spite of the half trillion dollars we've spent over there. So if we're going to leave in two years Ed, you want to turn it over to some people that are adults about this and can control the situation. But even our erstwhile ally Pakistan isn't cooperating so it is a very tenuous situation."

This war is officially our longest war, exceeding the Vietnam War.
