- The Washington Times - Tuesday, November 17, 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 three of Monday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Tim Brown, one of two New York City firefighters to arrive first at the World Trade Center on 9/11: Having lost 93 friends on Sept. 11, 2001, including his firefighting partner, Mr. Brown blasted President Obama’s decision to prosecute five terrorism suspects, including the self-proclaimed mastermind of the attacks, in civil court in New York City. “I can’t believe I’m even having this conversation,” Mr. Brown said.

• Debra Burlingame, sister of hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 Capt. Charles “Chic” Burlingame III: Ms. Burlingame, a lawyer, burst into tears while recalling personal stories about her brother, whose plane crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11. She said the Obama administration will live to regret its decision to prosecute in New York City five detainees from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

• Sen. Jim DeMint, South Carolina Republican: Whereas Democrats blocked his amendment to ban Guantanamo detainees from being prosecuted on American soil, Mr. DeMint said there are still avenues to pursue toward that end, particulary amid such widespread outcry against the proposal.
