Appearing on the May 25 edition of FOX News Channel's Hannity & Colmes to describe a trip to Iraq in February 2003 (shortly before the war began) that transformed him from an opponent to a supporter of the war, Assyrian Reverend Ken Joseph called for "a day of prayer to pray for Iraq" before the crucial handover of sovereignty -- only to be interrupted by the show's co-host, Sean Hannity.
From the May 25 edition of Hannity & Colmes:
JOSEPH: Well, we're asking people this Sunday, is the 30th, one month before the handover. We're just asking people to set aside a day of prayer to pray for Iraq, that somehow this handover will...
HANNITY: Can we pray for the reelection of George Bush?
JOSEPH: And then also pray -- pray for the Christians.
HANNITY: Were you a supporter of President Bush? Tell me honestly.
