GLENN: 888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK. Did you hear, Nancy Pelosi has finally admitted that progress has been made in Iraq. I never, ever thought I would see the day when she would admit that there was progress in Iraq, but she has and here's the audio.
PELOSI: Some of the success of the surge is at the goodwill of the Iranians. They decided in Basra when the fighting would end. They negotiated that cessation of hostilities.
GLENN: The goodwill of the Iranians? The goodwill of the Iranians. You mean the ones that have been killing our troops and making weapons and sneaking them across the border and blowing our troops up, that goodwill? You mean the goodwill from the people who have just yet again made another threat against Israel and said it was about time it vanished? I've never been one to get all hot and bothered about, you know, when Clinton was in, it wasn't the end of the world. He was bad, I thought it was really bad for the example that he set. I thought it was bad for us culturally. I thought it said -- he said more about us than about him. I learned more about us in the Nineties than I learned about congress and I learned about the President. This one, boy, I can't imagine. These people are so far left that they're talking -- she's talking about the goodwill of the Iranian leader.
Stu, how much goodwill do you think people have that take homosexuals and kill them?
STU: Generally not a -- they don't seem like a partying bunch.
GLENN: Wouldn't you think that Nancy Pelosi who represents the San Francisco area might have a problem with people who take homosexuals out into the street, flog them and kill them?
STU: Well, I don't know if actually you remember this. He did point out that there were no homosexuals in Iran.
GLENN: Oh, yeah, that's right. I don't understand. I really, I don't understand.
STU: It's an -- it is literally an unquenchable thirst to find negative about Iraq, to just not give credit and to try to make it nonpolitical.
GLENN: It's beyond that. I really don't understand that. Look, I'm willing to look at the facts. I'm willing to look at the facts that, okay, the facts were wrong when we went in. I'm willing to look at that. I'm willing to look at the fact that it was fought horribly, horribly not by the people on the ground but by Washington. It was fought horribly. We needed more boots on the ground. I'm willing to look at that. I'm willing to admit mistakes on that. I didn't do it but I'm willing to say we made mistakes. It's not just that they are looking to have us lose any way they can. It's who they're willing to throw in with. They are willing to throw in with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. You're kidding me, right? You're giving this guy goodwill? A religious zealot. Can you imagine. I mean, look how much heat that John Hagee gets. He's crazy because he says that maybe the end of the world is coming, Jesus is coming soon. Look how much they hate that guy. And yet a guy who stands at the UN and says, oh, Allah, help me hasten the return of the promised one. If you understood what he was talking about, you would understand that he's talking about, "Help me bring chaos to Earth because the faster we wash this Earth with blood, the faster the promised one will come." That's what his theology is. And they are so willing to get into bed with the worst people ever. They are willing to get into bed with Chavez. I don't understand it. It's so much more than just wanting to win here and win an election. This is a total view change of the United States. It is not just a different way to look at a problem. This is, a problem is the United States that the regime over in Iraq -- I'm sorry, in Iran has goodwill. They have been killing our soldiers! That Chavez makes some good points. He's a dictator. It goes back to what liberals will not admit to. They liked Mussolini before Mussolini threw in with Hitler. They liked him. He was the man of the year from Time magazine and it was in a good way. There were articles left and right in the New York Times and the New Yorker and everything elsewhere people said this is it, this is the new system, a benevolent guy who just is a strong arm and handles it all. It's craziness. Now they don't even care if it's a good guy. Now he can be as crazy as crazy town will allow you to be. He can be as evil as evil will allow you to be and they are still like, he's not that bad. He's better than us.
