- The Washington Times - Thursday, July 2, 2009


If you didn’t tune into The Washington Times’ nationally syndicated radio show - “America’s Morning News” - here’s what just a few of Wednesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

c Roger Noriega, former U.S. ambassador to the Organization of American States: Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was the victim of a military coup last week because he all but shredded his Latin American country’s constitution in his bid to seek a forbidden second term, Mr. Noriega said.

cDavid Pryce-Jones, senior editor of National Review and author of “The Closed Circle: An Interpretation of the Arabs”: Despite Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad insisting his re-election “victory” is being celebrated by Iranians, the population will become so “angry” in the coming months that whatever new term he attempts to serve will be rife with swelling unrest and controversy, said Mr. Pryce-Jones, speaking from London.

c Iain Murray, climate expert and senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI): The CEI has learned that the Environmental Protection Agency did not release an internal audit report dissenting from the conclusion that carbon emissions are a cause of global warming, Mr. Murray said.

The author of the report, which has been kept under wraps by the federal agency, has since been “silenced,” Mr. Murray said, reiterating that the planet continues its decade-long trend of cooling.

c Retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, host of the Fox News Channel’s “War Stories With Oliver North”: Having scored a major victory in Iraq, U.S. troops should be feted with ticker-tape parades upon their return to the United States, but that is unlikely to happen under the Obama administration, Mr. North said.
