Glenn Beck: 17 Afghan Soldiers AWOL in America

The Overton Window, coming Tuesday, June 15

GLENN: This country is out of control. A nationwide alert has been issued for 17 members of the Afghan military who have gone AWOL from an Air Force base in Texas (update). I believe it's Lakeland Air Force base. They are pilots that we have been training and we have been teaching them to speak English. We brought them over here. 17 of them have gone AWOL. Here's the best part. These enlisted men have security badges that give them access to secure U.S. defense installations all across the country. They're missing this morning.

PAT: That seems like a smart move, bring them over here, give them access to whatever they want to have access to.

GLENN: Yeah, you'd think.

PAT: And then, you know, not even keep an eye on them really. Yeah, whatever. Let's just teach them English. That's the inclusive, diverse thing to do. That's a good idea.

GLENN: Chief of public affairs — oh, it's Lackland Air Force base. "I can confirm that 17 have gone missing from the Defense Language Institute. They disappeared over the course of the last..." are you ready?

PAT: Is it even worse?

STU: Uh oh.

GLENN: Are you ready?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They have disappeared over the course of the last two years.

PAT: Oh, and we're just finding out about it now.

GLENN: We're just finding out about this now.

PAT: So we bring them, somebody disappears. We bring more, they disappear.

GLENN: So we have 17 of them, yes.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

STU: It does go on to say towards the end, the official further said that an unspecified number of the 17 have been caught, which could be zero because it's unspecified, but it is an unspecified number. So don't worry.

GLENN: Visa issued to these personnel have been revoked or are in the process of being revoked.

PAT: That's a little hasty.

GLENN: Oh, if they're in the process.

PAT: That's a little hasty. We don't know that there's anything wrong going on.

STU: I hope we didn't ask them for their identification when they come.

PAT: No, because that would be profiling.

STU: Because that would be terrible. Profiling.

PAT: That would be evil.

STU: Profiling Afghanis for no reason. They are just here to work.

PAT: That's exactly right.

STU: They are just here to learn the language and work.

PAT: What kind of country are we?

GLENN: The real intention is to get these people to the U.S. and help them start a new life.

PAT: Oh, good.

GLENN: It's not completely rare for this kind of thing to happen. Excuse me? Although we are vigilant, need to work towards not allowing this to happen, it should not necessarily, not necessarily described as a national security threat, more of a, "Hey, these guys violated our laws and we need to find them," end quote.

PAT: What law did they violate?

STU: Not one that we enforce.

PAT: No. I mean, if it's just that they're here or their visa expired or they're here without papers, so what.

GLENN: So what.

PAT: That's not illegal. I mean, in Arizona they just made that illegal and they're racist, you know, xenophobes. So I wonder what the problem is with them wondering around the country ?

STU: It's just Afghan military members.

PAT: Whatever.

STU: Just trying to work hard for their families.

PAT: That's all. Look, family values —

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I just want to see you on 8/28. I just, I just want to be around a lot of sane people. I just, I want to be around a lot of people that understand how much trouble we're in and understand that there's going to be a core of people that fix it. Yesterday I spent some time with a historian and we were talking and she said, Glenn, you're right on the money on so much of what you talk about and the fact that we cannot be expected to survive, especially with added pressure, if we don't know our own history, if we don't know who we are.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
