Laura Ingraham hosted former Vice-President Dick Cheney.
Cheney said the Bergdahl recovery has been outrageous and that the broader agenda for President Obama is to declare the war on terror is over, pointing to the withdrawal from the Middle East. He stated that this is exactly what Osama bin Laden wanted and that there has been a great increase in terrorist activity.
Cheney stated that it is our practice to bring our soldiers home, but the price paid for Bergdahl's release was way out of line with five top Taliban leaders being given over to Qatar. He agreed with Ingraham that previously a strong US was regarded as essential for peace and that President Obama has a different world view. Ingraham said there isn't a strong voice to speak out on the flouting of the rule of law on a host of issues.
Cheney expressed concern about the new EPA regulations that are aimed at reducing coal production. He said he hasn't seen the ENLIST Act, but feels citizens and legal immigrants should get priority for military service. He is also worried that only four brigades are combat ready which puts the US in danger. He said securing our borders isn't a priority to curb illegal immigration and to keep us safe. He said Reagan never hesitated and got to solving the problems at hand.
Cheney said we had ten divisions during the Cold War which we are nowhere close to today and that China and Russia see Obama as weak. He feels since Obama has only two more years in offfice that our ooponents will try to take what they can get.
