  • LELAND: A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT

  • HOW PEOPLE HERE AT HOME ARE

  • RESPONDING TO THE STRIKE.

  • TALK SHOW HOST FROM LOUISVILLE,

  • KENTUCKY, LELAND CONWAY.

  • GOOD TO SEE YOU, AS ALWAYS, MY

  • FRIEND.

  • WE'LL PUT THIS TWEET UP, WE GOT

  • THIS FROM ROSE McGOWAN

  • YESTERDAY.

  • DEAR IRAN, THE USA HAS

  • DISRESPECTED YOUR COUNTRY, YOUR

  • FLAG, YOUR PEOPLE.

  • 52% OF US HUMBLY APOLOGIZE.

  • WE WANT PEACE WITH YOUR NATION.

  • WE'RE BEING HELD HOSTAGE BY A

  • TERRORIST REGIME.

  • PLEASE DO NOT KILL US, HASHTAG

  • SULEMANI.

  • SHE HAS SINCE WALKED THAT BACK,

  • AS ONE MIGHT IMAGINE, WITH THIS

  • REPORTED BY THE DAILY MAIL.

  • QUOTE: I HAD A FLASHBACK TO

  • BEING AT THE UNITED NATIONS

  • CAFETERIA WITH MY FRIEND IF WHO

  • WAS A LAWYER THERE FOR THE U.N.,

  • AND IT WAS THE SAME DAY THAT

  • COLIN POWELL WAS DELIVERING HIS

  • FAKE WMD TESTIMONY AT THE U.N.

  • THIS IS WHAT SHE TOLD THE AP.

  • HOW THOSE TWO ARE RELATED OR

  • EXPLAINS THE TWEET, I DON'T

  • KNOW.

  • CAN YOU FIGURE IT OUT?

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • >> NO.

  • I MEAN, SERIOUSLY, I TURN TO

  • HOLLYWOOD FOR ALL OF MY

  • POLITICAL COMMENTARY THESE DAYS.

  • WHAT DO THEY ACTUALLY KNOW ABOUT

  • WHAT AVERAGE AMERICANS ARE

  • FACING?

  • BETTER YET, I COME FROM A STATE

  • WHO HAS 302,000 VETERANS OUT OF

  • 4 MILLION PEOPLE, ALMOST 10%

  • HAVE BEEN IN THE MILITARY AND

  • ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE ACTUALLY

  • SERVED IN THE IRAQ AND

  • AFGHANISTAN WAR AND HAVE FACED

  • THIS SITUATION.

  • I ALWAYS LOVE IT WHEN

  • CELEBRITIES LIKE TO WEIGH IN ON

  • THINGS LIKE POLITICS BECAUSE,

  • CLEARLY, SHE HAS A GOOD GRASP OF

  • HOW AMERICANS REACT.

  • I WAS RUSHING TO TRY TO WRITE

  • APOLOGIES TO IRAN FOR EVERYTHING

  • WE HAVE DONE TO THEM OVER THE

  • YEARS, IT'S RIDICULOUS.

  • LELAND: FORT CAMPBELL, KENTUCKY,

  • AMONG A LOT OF OTHER --

  • >> FORT KNOX.

  • LELAND: -- U.S. MILITARY

  • INSULATIONS.

  • YOUR LISTENERS, REASONABLE

  • PEOPLE CAN DISAGREE ON FOREIGN

  • POLICY DECISIONS.

  • WAS THERE A LOT OF DISAGREEMENT

  • YOU WERE GETTING ON THE AIR

  • YESTERDAY?

  • >> NO.

  • I THINK, I THINK, YOU KNOW, WHEN

  • YOU LISTEN TO SENATOR RAND PAUL

  • AND CONGRESSMAN THOMAS MASSIE

  • FROM KENTUCKY SPEAK, THEY

  • REPRESENT A PRETTY WIDE PORTION

  • OF THE PEOPLE IN THE STATE AND

  • ALSO IN MY LISTENER BASE.

  • THERE'S ACTUALLY A RECOGNITION

  • THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP JUST

  • RESPONDED TO IRAN CROSSING A RED

  • LINE.

  • THERE'S A RECOGNITION OF THAT,

  • AND THERE'S A SENSE OF RELIEF

  • THAT WE HAVE A PRESIDENT NOW

  • WHO'S ACTUALLY GOING TO DO WHAT

  • HE SAYS HE'S GOING TO DO.

  • BUT THERE'S ALSO TREPIDATION,

  • AND THAT IS THAT BECAUSE WE DO

  • HAVE SO MANY VETERANS IN OUR

  • STATE, SO MANY PEOPLE IN OUR

  • STATE WHO HAVE SACRIFICED, SO

  • MANY WHO HAVE ACTUALLY GIVEN THE

  • ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, THERE'S A

  • QUESTION ABOUT WHAT'S THE PLAN

  • GOING FORWARD.

  • AND YOU HEAR SENATE RAND PAUL

  • TALKING ABOUT THAT AND

  • CONGRESSMAN MASSIE, AND HE

  • BROUGHT UP TO ME YESTERDAY ON MY

  • SHOW, CONGRESSMAN MASSEY DID,

  • THAT OUR EMBASSY IN IRAQ IS A

  • BILLION DOLLARS.

  • DOES THAT LOOK LIKE THE KIND OF

  • EMBASSY THAT ISN'T GOING TO BE

  • THERE VERY LONG IN TERMS OF JUST

  • THE SIZE, THE SCOPE AND SCALE --

  • LELAND: AND RAND PAUL SAYING,

  • ESSENTIALLY, THAT DIPLOMACY'S

  • DEAD BECAUSE OF THIS STRIKE.

  • IT'S IMPORTANT.

  • NOW WE LOOK FORWARD TO 20 AND

  • WHOEVER IS GOING TO BE -- 2020

  • AND WHOEVER IS GOING TO BE THE

  • DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE WILL PROBABLY

  • BE TALKING ABOUT JUST THIS ISSUE

  • IN TERMS OF FOREIGN POLICY AND

  • WHETHER OR NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP

  • KEPT HIS PROMISES OR NOT.

  • HERE WAS OUR PETER DOOCY

  • QUESTIONING JOE BIDEN YESTERDAY

  • ON THE TRAIL ABOUT WHETHER HE

  • WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE SAME ORDER.

  • TAKE A LISTEN.

  • >> AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF IF YOU

  • WERE EVER HANDED A PIECE OF

  • INTELLIGENCE THAT SAID YOU CAN

  • STOP AN IMMINENT ATTACK ON

  • AMERICANS BUT YOU HAVE TO USE AN

  • AIRSTRIKE TO TAKE OUT A TERROR

  • LEADER, WOULD YOU PULL THE

  • TRIGGER?

  • >> WELL, WE DID.

  • THE GUY'S NAME'S OSAMA bin

  • LADEN.

  • >> DIDN'T YOU TELL PRESIDENT

  • OBAMA NOT TO GO OUT --

  • >> [INAUDIBLE]

  • LELAND: AND NOW WE WILL RUN THE

  • TAPE FROM 2012 THAT PETER WAS

  • BASING THAT QUESTION WITH OFF

  • OF.

  • TAKE A LISTEN.

  • >> MR. PRESIDENT, MY SUGGESTION

  • IS DON'T GO.

  • WE HAVE TO DO TWO MORE THINGS TO

  • SEE IF HE'S THERE.

  • LELAND: THAT WAS BIDEN TALKING

  • ABOUT THE DECISION PROCESS INTO

  • THE bin LADEN RAID.

  • DOES THESE MOVES BY PRESIDENT

  • TRUMP IN SENDING 3,000 PLUS

  • TROOPS NOW TO THE REGION OPEN

  • HIM UP TO ATTACKS FROM BIND OR

  • FROM -- BIDEN OR ANYBODY ELSE

  • SAYING YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING

  • TO GET US OUT OF ENDLESS WARS,

  • AND YOU JUST PUT, MADE A MAJOR

  • MOVE IN THE MIDDLE EAST OF

  • POTENTIALLY STARTING ONE WITH

  • IRAN.

  • >> I THINK WHAT'S INTERESTING IS

  • LOOKING AT WHAT THE DEMOCRATS

  • HAVE DONE IN RESPONSE TO THIS.

  • AND BIDEN MAY BE IN A LITTLE BIT

  • DIFFERENT SITUATION HAVING BEEN

  • VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

  • STATES WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA MADE

  • PARTICULAR TYPES OF STRIKES.

  • BUT WHEN I HEAR THE DEMOCRATS

  • JUMPING UP AND DOWN AND SAYING,

  • YOU KNOW, WE WANT, WE WANT PROOF

  • OR WE WANT THE AUTHORITY AND ALL

  • OF THIS, THE DEMOCRATS IN A

  • SENSE HAVE BEEN A BIG PART --

  • CONGRESS ITSELF, BOTH

  • REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS --

  • HAVE GIVEN THE PRESIDENT THE

  • AUTHORITY TO DO STUFF THAT THEY

  • NOW CAN STAND BACK AND SORT OF
