Sending A Message
A pumped up Sean took the national “Hannity” airwaves this afternoon full of admiration and gratitude towards our brave men and women in uniform who killed one of the most evil men in history - Osama bin Laden. “We sent a message to the rest of the world. If you kill our brothers and sisters, our fellow Americans, you are going to pay for it with your life. It may takes weeks, years or almost a decade – but we are going to hunt you down, we’re going to find you and we are going to kill you. The spontaneous eruption of celebration around the world was just a joy to see,” Sean said reflecting on the past twenty-four hours. “Bin Laden attacked our citizens in an act of massive, evil cruelty – and took great delight in it. To learn of his violent death after he brought so much pain, suffering and sorrow to people – it inspires sober satisfaction for me. What happened in Pakistan was taking care of unfinished business, i n just the right way, buy just the right people,” said Sean.

Donald Rumsfeld On The Death Of Bin Laden
Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld joined Sean and weighed-in on the death of Osama bin Laden. “This has been a long time coming,” Rumsfeld said. “Bin Laden was the one to issue the fatwa (an Islamic religious ruling) saying it was the responsibility of Muslims to kill Americans. He was the one back in the 80’s and 90’s after the Cole bombing and first attack on the World Trade Center said that America was a ‘paper tiger’ and wouldn’t strike back.” The former secretary also explained that several years ago there was intelligence that Osama’s death might spark a violent attack on Americans. Naturally, the heightened response seen around the country did not surprise Rumsfeld and in fact he was glad to see that the security level had immediately increased. Rumsfeld cautioned that while it was a huge victory to eliminate Bin Laden it by no means eliminates the threat of terrorism. “It’s import ant to take away the face of radical Islamism, but there may well be a successor. There are people out there who have been trained and financed to kill innocent men, women and children and they’re not going to go away simply because Osama bin Laden is off the scene.” To listen to Sean’s complete interview with Rumsfeld please click here.
The Terrorist Next Door
Erick Stakelbeck, author of “The Terrorist Next Door” joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline to discuss his new book. Stakelbeck, who is an investigative reporter, exposes the staggering truth about our national security: the Obama administration is concealing the enormous terrorist threat growing right here within America’s borders. Many believe terrorism is only a problem for other countries, but Stakelbeck’s on-the-ground reporting will open your eyes. He has been inside America’s radical mosques, visited U.S.-based Islamic enclaves, and learned about our enemies by going straight to the source - interviewing al-Qaeda-linked terrorists themselves. The Terrorist Next Door blows the whistle on how the same reckless, open-borders policies of the U.S. continue to aid and abet jihadi-sympathizers from Somalia and elsewhere.
