Secure Freedom Minute: Lloyd Austin Must Go


This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. 

When I worked for Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger and President Reagan a lifetime ago, it would have been unimaginable for “Cap” to be AWOL in an ICU – or for any other reason – for even an hour, let alone as Lloyd Austin recently did for three days.
