BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And that's what happens when a 21,000-pound bomb explodes in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, where at least 36 ISIS fighters have lost their life.
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Geraldo, that video's black and white.
GERALDO RIVERA: Good morning.
EARHARDT: But that is what freedom looks like. That's the red, white and blue.
RIVERA: Well one of my favorite things in the 16 years I've been here at Fox News is watching bombs drop on bad guys. And I have some experience in that exact part of Afghanistan going back to December 2001, the first of my 11 assignments in that country, where we dropped what was the forerunner, maybe you call it the father of the "mother of all bombs," the Daisy Cutter, Daisy Cutter 15,000 pounds of explosive. This is 22,000 pounds of explosive. Like then, now, we've had a successful hit. Almost two dozen, or more actually, three dozen bad guys killed. It's not going to win the war, but it certainly sends a message.
