KILMEADE KONDENSED: 09/24/14
Former Congressman (R-FL) and Lt. Col. ALLEN WEST (Ret.) talked to Brian and called President Obama a political ideology who doesn't have the ability to lead a strong offensive. There is no one that is afraid of President Obama, he doesn't instil fear to our enemies or confidence in our allies. Colonel West also said that we have to stop claiming that ISIS is not Islamic because Islam has always been a religion that is not tolerant.
Former Ambassador DENNIS ROSS told Brian that we have to take on ISIS because we don't have a choice. The best way to deal with them is to inflict setbacks to them and attacking them wherever they are because we cannot allow them to have a safe haven from which to operate. He also explained that this won't be a short campaign because they have strong base of operations from Syria. Ambassador Ross also told Brian that it is very important that we have Arab nations as part of the coalition because they understand that this is a threat they are going to have to deal with and we need to show that the Sunni world is rejecting ISIS. You can't defeat an ideology from the outside, it has to be defeated and discredited from the inside.
Author of "The Bremer Detail: Protecting the Most Threatened Man in the World" FRANK GALLAGHER dropped by to talk about working for BlackWater to protect Paul Bremer.
