Lessons To Learn
Sean kicked off the show on Monday venting his frustrations surrounding the debate over enhanced interrogation techniques. “There’s something to be learned from all of this and the liberal media isn’t telling you,” a clearly frustrated Hannity shared with his audience, “That is the role of enhanced interrogation in finding Bin Laden.” Hannity continued, “If the President had his way, this success would never have happened, case closed.” Air Force General Mike Hayden claimed that the lead information on the death of Bin Laden came from CIA detainees who were subjected to enhanced interrogation. If you’ll recall last Wednesday’s show, Secretary Rumsfeld joined Sean to discuss General Hayden’s comments and just how important enhanced interrogations can be.

Speaker John Boehner
Speaker John Boehner joined Sean to give his thoughts on the economy and the future of the budget battles. “Many conservatives are hoping that the Republican majority gets major concessions for raising the debt ceiling if it’s raised at all,” pushed Hannity, “Where do you stand on that?” Boehner quickly offered his thoughts saying, “I believe that raising the debt ceiling is the responsible thing to do but I think it would be more irresponsible to increase the debt ceiling without meaningful action that shows we’re serious about fixing the debt.” Boehner continued, “It’s time for us as Americans to have a real adult conversation about what’s driving the debt.” Speaker Boehner is in New York talking to the Economic Club of New York on jobs, debt and gas prices.

Congressman Pete King
Sean spent some time with Congressman King talking about Osama Bin Laden’s death. Hitting the ground running, Sean pressed Congressman King, “Did enhanced interrogation techniques play a pivotal role in locating Osama Bin Laden?” “To put it very specifically, it was the water boarding of Khalid Sheik Mohamed and intense interrogation of Al-Libbi,” bluntly offered Congressman King, “That’s where we got the first information alerting us to the courier who was very close to Bin Laden.” For more on Congressman King’s stance, check out this video from Fox News.
