GRETCHEN CARLSON: You know, I don't know if it's scary or there's another adjective to describe it, but Showtime has a show called Homeland. And one of their characters actually seems to sometimes know more about this war on terror and ISIS than possibly the administration. Listen to this.


CARLSON: So on that show, Lieutenant Colonel, they're talking about what needs to be done in Syria. I mean, should we be listening to Homeland?

BILL COWAN: Yeah, we probably ought to, Gretchen. I don't watch it. I know it's a wonderful show. But the fact of the matter is, we have rules of engagement set down by the administration that preclude us from actively and aggressively attacking ISIS thinkers, the headquarters, what have you.
