Sean sat down earlier this week with Congressman Peter King to discuss ongoing Congressional investigations into the terrorist attacks on the American Consulate in Libya. “Why didn’t we have extra security at our embassies,” began Hannity, “That is malpractice as far as I’m concerned.” “As far as Egypt goes, the embassy was warned,” offered King, “President Morsi, even though he gets $1.6 billion in funding, he did nothing to protect us.” “High-ranking Libyan officials have said they gave direct warning to the United States,” retorted Hannity, “And we did nothing.” “The reason that the Obama Administration doesn’t want to admit this is a terrorist attack is because that shows their policies have failed,” continued Congressman King, “Obama says Bin Laden is dead because of his policies and that Al Qaeda is no longer a force so, for them to admit that AL Qae da led these attacks on our consulate…” “Is a failure,” interrupted Hannity sternly. The truth is that our intelligence is only as valuable as our willingness to act on it and it’s fairly clear that mistakes were made here.

Politics vs Security
Sean was joined by former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino, who’s currently involved in a heated Senate campaign in Maryland, to talk about President Obama’s foreign policy. “The threat assessments may have been downplayed by this administration to avoid evacuating the Libyan consulate,” offered Bongino, “To evacuate the consulate would be admitting a failure in foreign policy before the election.” When pressed on our relationships with Israel, Bongino offered, “We have abandoned our only true ally in the region to appeal to the far left wing of the Democratic Party and we’ve done so at the expense of both our national security and that of Israel’s.” “I’ve worked with Israeli security many times and they live in an ‘existential threat’ environment,” continued Bongino, “I’d guess they are more than likely disgusted with our current Administration’s fecklessness.” For more on Bongino including a great speech he made on the future of America, click here.

Doing What IS Right, Not What Feels Right
Sean was joined by Michelle Malkin and Erica Payne to discuss the heated November election battles. Erica Payne was the creative person who’s responsible for the now infamous commercial with Paul Ryan throwing an elderly woman over a cliff. “ Do you think Paul Ryan wants to kill Grandma,” sarcastically asked Hannity of Payne, “I thought he wanted to save Medicare” “I believe that Paul Ryan fundamentally doesn’t agree with Medicare and by defunding it will adversely impact the health of many of our elderly,” replied Payne. “Help me out Michelle, who cut Medicare by $716 billion dollars,” laughed Hannity, “I believe it was the President.” “Do you feel Republicans are more likely to take care of the elderly than the Democrats,” asked Payne bluntly. “I sure do,” replied Malkin, “The thing is that Democrats are sabotaging the elderly’s ability to choose for themselves.&r dquo; “I do as well,” shot back Hannity, “Republicans are saving the system from bankruptcy.” The point that Sean has made continually is that it seems that Romney and Ryan are determined to do what's right and not what feels right.
