RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number two — did you see over the weekend that the war in Afghanistan’s over? (interruption) Yeah. Yeah. I remember on Friday, if you recall, if you were here, you might not have been because it’s a big travel weekend, but I want to revisit something. Grab sound bite number one. Let’s go ahead and play audio of me last Friday as we headed into the Memorial Day weekend, ’cause this sets up this Afghanistan comment.
RUSH ARCHIVE: This, to me, is one of the most important Memorial Days, and they’re all important, even that little characterization should give you an idea how tough this one is to talk about. This particular Memorial Day with everything going on in Iraq and the Middle East and ISIS now just running out of control and our leadership seemingly unconcerned, the Iranians nuking up, but Iraq and what’s happening there has got to make this Memorial Day a real challenge for a lot of American families. Those who had family members who served in Iraq, who were injured and wounded in Iraq, or died in Iraq. I mean, they might legitimately be asking themselves this weekend, this Memorial Day, why, what was the point, was it worth it? And you wouldn’t blame ’em if they did. It’s a toughie. It still needs to be acknowledged.
