This is from the June 29, 2006 broadcast of Fox News Radio’s Brian & The Judge.
“...HAYWORTH: Well, E.D., I don’t know that we need an office of Censorship. What we do need to rediscover, if you will, is a notion that I guess was borne out in World War II. Stephen Ambrose, the late biographer of Dwight Eisenhower, writes very eloquently of a situation prior to D-Day, when Ike called together the war correspondents in — in England and said, “Fellas, just thought you ought to know, we’re going to go in early June.” And Ambrose, in that wonderful biography, says to a man, the war correspondents stopped writing, and one asked, “General, why did you tell us?” And Ike responded, “Because you’re good Americans and I know you will not jeopardize the lives of fellow Americans.”
We all need to rediscover that, especially those in journalism who have taken it upon themselves to become the arbiters of what should be national security and some who argue that no, they’re really not so much citizens of the United States, now they are citizens of the world, neutral observers of the scene. That’s a strange type of reasoning here and it’s certainly — I won’t call it politically correct. I think it’s nationally suicidal.
The left WANT AMERICA brought to her knees because they DETEST Bush so much!!!!
Man i need oxygen after reading that..Is that what Ambrose really wrote—what Ike said to the reporters?..because everything i have read about Ike says that the date of the D-Day invasion was known only to a very small circle of people, maybe 3 or 4 at most right up until just before the invasion date was set..
Agree with the rest of your good post..
