- The Washington Times - Thursday, August 20, 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 just a few of Wednesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Megan Ortagus of the Institute for the Study of War: Ms. Ortagus spoke of being embedded recently with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan, taking issue with reports that the Taliban is gaining the upper hand in that war-torn country. She did note that violent attacks by the Taliban have increased by more than 30 percent of late.

• Rand Paul of Kentucky, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate: The physician son of Rep. Ron Paul of Texas spoke out against “Obamacare.” But to have a say in Congress, Dr. Paul said he will first have to win a tough Republican primary and then face a yet-to-be determined Democratic opponent.

• Jed Babbin, editor of Human Events: Mr. Babbin joined a chorus of Washington’s movers and shakers in paying tribute to Robert D. Novak, the legendary syndicated columnist and conservative pundit who died of brain cancer Tuesday at age of 78.
