BRIAN'S QUOTE OF THE DAY
You know what the story should be? Three years in the making, Obamacare is finally in play, almost full-force, and they are totally incapable and inept. They have no idea what they are doing. The WSJ hired a firm to look at the software put out by the Obama Administration. It turns out the software is fundamentally flawed. There's glitches everywhere because it is a sloppy software foundation. They said it was hastily constructed. It may not have been able to withstand online demands that were half of what they experienced last week!
Brian got the latest information on the raids that took place over the weekend in Libya and Somalia from Lt. Col. Oliver North & Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer! COL. NORTH said the Administration keeps calling al-Shabab the core of Al Qaeda. North explained we have to stop talking like that because what we really have is radical jihadist Islam which has franchised itself out into dozens of different named groups. LT. COL. SHAFFER weighed in on President Obama's change in tactics when fighting terror. He said from what he is hearing, you basically have to sell your first born in order to get a drone strike approved.
"The Book the NFL Does Not Want You to Read:" ESPN investigative reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Steve Fainaru, authors of 'League of Denial: The NFL, Concussions and the Battle for Truth, ' reveal how the NFL, over a period of nearly two decades, sought to cover up and deny mounting evidence of the connection between football and brain damage. They discussed the fates of players like Mike Webster and Junior Seau, whose diseased brain became the target of a scientific battle between researchers and the NFL.
PBS/Frontline is also releasing a documentary called "League of Denial" which debuts tonight at 9pm (ET) ON PBS. The authors also addressed the controversial move by ESPN to be removed from the documentary; many speculated that it had to due with the network's contract with the NFL.
Fmr Amb JOHN BOLTON, & FOX's JENNIFER GRIFFIN joined Kilmeade and Friends and offered up their expert insight and analysis on the capture of al-Libi. Jenn revealed that she wants to know if anybody is getting the $5 million bounty that was on al-Libi's head! She went on to explain that al-Libi wrote the book on how to evade interrogation by Western forces. The Manchester Manuel was found in his apartment back in the 90's. Continuing the discussion on al-Libi's interrogation, Amb Bolton said if he were president he would suspend al-Libi's indictment so that we could continue to interrogate him for as long as necessary.
Brian and his co-author DonYaeger revealed the fascinating story and inspiration behind 'George Washington's Secret Six: The Spy Ring That Saved the American Revolution. Don Yaeger, author of several best-selling books, explained what attracted him to the project, seeing as this was out of his "space" and "not a book he would have traditionally looked to have told." He told Brian, "listening to your enthusiasm and passion for the story, I couldn't wait to get involved." Brian also revealed what inspired him to begin the investigation into The Culper Ring.
