- The Washington Times - Thursday, December 3, 2009

In case you didn’t tune in to 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 four of Wednesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

c Sen. Richard M. Burr, North Carolina Republican: Mr. Burr applauded President Obama’s order for 30,000 additional troops to be deployed to Afghanistan but disagreed with the president’s issuing an exact timetable for withdrawal from the embattled country.

- Tom Cotton, U.S. Army infantry officer: Mr. Cotton, who returned from Afghanistan in July, called attention to widespread “misperceptions” about the war in Afghanistan, among them that the fight against the Taliban cannot be won. The contrary is true, he said.

- Charles Goyette, author of “The Dollar Meltdown: Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis With Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments”: Mr. Goyette said he sees “no light” at the end of the tunnel that is the current economic crisis.

- John J. Miller, author of “The First Assassin”: In his fictitious crime thriller, Mr. Miller said John Wilkes Booth was not the first would-be assassin of Abraham Lincoln to prowl a nervous Washington in 1861.
