- The Washington Times - Wednesday, September 2, 2009


In case you didn’t tune into The Washington Times’ nationally syndicated radio show “America’s Morning News” - heard in Washington on WTNT-AM 570 and coast-to-coast via the Talk Radio Network - here’s what several of Tuesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Former Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales: Mr. Gonzales said morale will suffer at the CIA now that his successor, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., has appointed a special prosecutor to pursue criminal charges against CIA employees who used enhanced interrogation techniques on terrorism suspects.

• Former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge: After blasting the Obama administration-led probe of CIA interrogators, Mr. Ridge told listeners not to become complacent, warning that terrorists could strike on U.S. soil at any time.

• Lanny Davis, former counsel to President Clinton: Mr. Davis fondly recalled Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat who was interred Saturday at Arlington National Cemetery alongside his brothers - John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy.

• Steven Hayward, author of “The Age of Reagan: The Conservative Counterrevolution 1980-1989”: Totaling almost 800 pages, this is the author’s long-awaited second tome on President Reagan, his first being “The Age of Reagan: The Fall of the Old Liberal Order, 1964-1980.” Both books took him a total of 10 years to write.

On Thursday, Washington Times radio host Rick Amato will call “America’s Morning News” at 8:30 a.m. as he broadcasts from a zeppelin over Southern California for a special report called “The Golden State From Above.” His hourlong show will air on wsRadio.com from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.

The special broadcast will mark the launch of wsRadioDC, which will feature diverse people and groups hosting their own one-hour weekly, interactive talk shows on the Web. Produced by wsRadio.com, the shows will be archived and podcast on iTunes.
