SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Colonel Peters, just like they won't release the video of the night of Benghazi, they scrubbed “Sharia,” they scrubbed “radical Islam” but more importantly they put Americans at risk by scrubbing the names of Muslims with radical ties, just like they're putting us at risk by taking in refugees when we know ISIS will infiltrate that population.
