New Iranian general steps out of Soleimanis shadow.

"I'm Anthony Davis New Iranian general has stepped down to the shadows to lead the country could force becoming responsible for Tehran's proxies across the Middle East as the Islamic republic threatens the US with hauch revenge filling. Its previous head. Kazan Sulejmani while much still remains unknown about sixty two year old as male Ghani Western sanctions. Suggest he's long been in a position of power in the organization. One of his first US duties is likely to be overseeing whatever revenge Iran intends to seek for the US air strike early Friday that killed his longtime friend and Soleimani. It was the midway point if he's annual Christmas vacation where Donald Trump huddled at his Florida club with his top national security advisers who presented him with an array of options for responding to an earlier attack on a US Iraqi base including the most dramatic possible response taking ounce General Sulejmani the head of Iran's elite coulds force and the man responsible for hundreds of American deaths trump immediately wanted to talk so Lemani. It was a decision. He's predecessors had avoided and one that risked inflaming tensions with Tehran. Some advisers voiced concern about the legal legal justification for a strike without evidence of an imminent attack in the works against Americans his decision to authorize the drone strike has sent shockwaves throughout the Middle East and has dramatically escalated tensions between the US and Iran earlier that day trump was meeting with his political advisors about his reelection campaign when he was summoned to give the final go-ahead trump said he was eager to project global strength and replicate the message.

A Review of the U.S. Defense Department in 2019

"Let's take a closer look at the defense department in twenty nineteen correspondent David Martin joins us from the Pentagon David there were some tense moments when the U. S. said Iran attacked the world's largest oil processing plant in Saudi Arabia what happened well Iran court the US intelligence and the Saudis completely by surprise with that attack it was launch from an air base at the top of the Persian Gulf from Iranian territory it consisted of basically a swarm of drones and cruise missiles neither the US nor a Saudi Arabia saw it coming the US basically decided that it was going to let Saudi Arabia decide what should be done in response so there was no real military response from the United States and the Saudis who above all else do not want a war with Iran have not force the issue also in the Mideast that U. S. special forces attack on ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi in northern Syria that led to his death he was hit hard the way he should have been and I just want to say for all of our military were very proud of you I was something very special remind us how that played out well that was in the immediate aftermath of the decision to start pulling US troops out of surgery and it had been in the works for some time the US apparently had a spy inside Baghdad he's compound of who could tell them not only that he was there but tell them the lay out of the compound and so the raid was conducted using the delta force out of a a base in Iraq the mission was to cap sure or kill Baghdadi just as it was to capture or kill Osama bin laden back in two thousand eleven in this case Baghdad he tried to escape from the compound by going down the tunnel but he went down a dead end tunnel apparently with two or three of his children and when one of the war dogs that the delta force had brought with them started pursuing him down that tunnel he detonated a suicide vest he was wearing a killed himself and the two or three children the question remains now what what impact did his death have on ISIS and the opinion of most experts in the US government is that it will not mean the end of vices that at ISIS will recover find a new leader and continue to try to survive by creating sleeper cells that can outlast the presence of American troops in Syria finally David we also saw some changes at the leadership level of the Pentagon including a short lived acting secretary of defense well we're now in our third year of the the trump administration and we are on our third secretary of defense if you count Patrick Shanahan who never became officially the US secretary defense producer for about six months as the acting secretary of defense he was his name was never a sign up to be confirmed by the full Senate and it is a pattern that you see throughout the the trump administration of the original holder of the office of leaving either because he's of fire or be killed comes under criticism from Congress and then acting secretary is appointed and then that situation last for some indefinite amount of time and president trump is even said he prefers to have acting secretaries because they're easier to control and there was one secretary of the navy Richard Spencer who clashed with the president and he was forced out over the case of a navy seal who was tried for war crimes and it was missed by all the people who who have to pay attention to this on a daily basis at the Pentagon Richard Spencer was for a brief period the acting secretary of defense during the the shuffle between Patrick Shanahan and the current secretary of defense mark asper he ran into a buzz saw over the case of the navy seal Eddie Gallagher who was convicted of posing for a photo with the body of the dead isis fighter the president initially overturned the sentence that had been levied on Gallagher and then after that when the navy tried to take away his tried and pan which is the symbol of a navy seal the president intervened once again and ordered that Gallagher be allowed to keep his triton pain with Eddie Gallagher you know that story very well they wanted to take its been away and I said no you're not going to take it away he was a great fighter Izzy yeah one of the ultimate fighters tough guy he's a lot with people these are tough people and we're going to protect our war fighters in the middle that Spencer was negotiating with the White House over a way to satisfy the president without having him intervene secretary defense mark asper thought of Spencer Reid men going behind his back to try to cut this deal with the White House German Millie and I were completely caught off guard by this information and realized that it undermined everything we've been discussing with the president and so markets for fired Spencer although Spencer clearly had already written his resignation letter basically saying he could not in good conscience go along with the president's efforts to intervene in the Gallagher case CBS news national security correspondent David Martin at the Pentagon on a busy twenty

"The world is now a much safer place donald trump his taking all the credit for this and the comparing himself to Barack Obama under whose leadership the Americans killed Osama bin Laden what did you make of Donald Trump's tone in that press Franson Sunday trump was clearly reveling in the moment he was almost gloating who's making claims that I'm not entirely convinced would be substantial wanted by the video type would have to be tight because there wasn't an idea he died after running into a dead end tunnel whimpering and crying and screaming all the way to say that Baghdadi was whimpering in a corner I think might be abusive listen we lost since there he he did seem to see you know him himself in a kind of a sheriff's role who had got the bad guy and while they're there is no doubt that the it it did represent Kuti achievement I think many may have been fronted by the tone and the tone was that this was him that Donald was not these security establishment or the CIA or or the tree whose leaders here at times impugned the decisions that have been taken under his name certainly in the last month in my view and in the view of analysts do not make the region a safe place trump has prematurely declared that the Islamic state has been defeated but my direction as command or in chief of the United States we obliterated his caliphate one hundred percent and the US canal pickup it's bags leave that's news to his allies certainly those who he's abandoned in Syria and it's it's threatening allies in the region in the north of Iraq route in Baghdad itself is a very strong view that Islamic state will use the the next months and years with the US depositing to regroup and to reorganize and to come back as a particularly violent insurgency which fades off the political disenfranchisement that has been fostered in the region the asking of Saddam and the vacuum that has followed particularly for the Sunni sect that Isis stood up and said well in the absence of any real political leadership you we've got your back that message despite all the chaos of the last a decade or so we'll continue to resonate with some and that remains gripe danger to regional security isis has acknowledged back daddy's death let's but what will it mean for them they will be demoralized in the short term and aim any momentum that they were feeling in recent months will probably be derailed for a short time while Isis is relatively organized them on the ground level that it has leaper cells in place it it can agitate an and can cause disturbances in Baghdad and elsewhere the leadership itself is new generation and just how potent a threat it will be in the future very much depends on them do you think this killing could bring consequence Zits for America and the West does no doubt that Isis will attempt to avenge this they have to be an attempt to cause some kind of a terrorist spectacular ella attack somewhere in the world I I would have thought that US interests would be a tempting target whether they have the capacity to Kara that often largely depends on how successful the interdiction attempts have been against a sleeper cells and and a attack plots in recent years Western intelligence certainly seems to feel it's in a better place than it was I guess it remains to be saying just just affected they have been inspired more than just a jihadist organization in the Middle East a worldwide terrorist movement. What do you think his legacy is he did tap into a sense of disenfranchisement in these Sunni Arab world particularly followed the US invasion in two thousand three he was decide to the Sunnis of the region that you have been stripped of your rights of your dignities not just Iraq but in Lebanon way this Sony patron was was sesame in two thousand and five and Syria the census Sunni disenfranchisement is a very potent one remains so but Baghdad has also been the shred state authority he's been able to show that these police states in Iraq and elsewhere were a paper tigers in many ways win sustained ideology goes up against them that they fold so the the power of the state has been chipped away in it's been shown that whether it be street protests and surgeon Z. or unrest it can significantly test authority here he's also been able to very that security in the West isn't as watertight as we thought it would be and that western societies themselves have issues that's feed resentment did fade disenfranchisement and in so much so that they can lead to violent acts being committed against them so no matter where you look Baghdadi's legacy is one of division chaos disruption and violence it is pitched civilizations against each other and and it will take a long long time for those who've been displaced or affected by the briefing terrible Ryan of offices to really recover from this experience.

IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead

"The place to start I think is the implication for Isis of al-Baghdadi demise I've read a number of commentaries over the past several days that argue that Al Baghdadi death is largely symbolic that it will have little effect on future vices because the group is prepared for this moment by diversifying itself by preparing other leaders to step up it's almost as if some people are saying and it really did not matter that we removed al-Baghdadi from the fight I could not disagree more Baghdadi and the thugs who follow him more responsible for some of the most brutal atrocities of our time his death marks a devastating blow for the remnants of Isis who are now deprived other inspiration leader following the destruction of physical caliphate earlier this year let's start with some context which is the bread and butter by the way of an intelligence analyst so as everyone knows isis lost the last piece of its Caliphate earlier this year that moment in March I think it was was culmination of a fight against Isis the gun by the Obama Administration and accelerated by the trump administration the caliphate the land hand held by Isis in Iraq and Syria had slowly shrunk in size over time until the point earlier this year when it was completely eliminated but the elimination one of the Caliphate did not mean the elimination of Isis in Iraq and Syria Isis fighters went underground and isis affiliates around the world of which there are are dozens and dozens of countries were little affected by the collapse of the caliphate and importantly despite the loss of its caliphate only ten months ago isis was already on the rebound in Iraq and Syria fighters were beginning as early as this bummer to coalesce to come together largely in the border area of northeastern Syria and northwestern Iraq the estimates on the number of those fires here's vary they range from anywhere from a low of ten thousand to as high as thirty thousand now bring al-Baghdadi back into this Asian into this discussion he was a leader on two different levels one he was the operational leader of Isis in Iraq and Syria where he was guiding the resurgence of the group and to he was the global movements inspirational an ideological leader show let's think about his death in the context of those two roles his death I think was a setback for the first role he of course is going to be placed in that role and it will perhaps I think be the death blow to the second role because it's going to be really hard to find a leader for the global movement who has his charisma who has his Gravitas who has his authority president trump said yesterday that Baghdad's Caliphate has been obliterated and true that Isis lost control of its loss remaining patch of territory in Syria in March but the Pentagon's watchdog says that Isis still has up to eighteen thousand members in Korea and Iraq what does our history with other terrorist groups tell us will happen in this case a couple of things I think one it will take time for any successor to learn the job to deal with any divisiveness any debates group to fully grab the means of power and to fully feel comfortable exercising authority the time it takes for that to happen the more time the better is a win for Ross secondly I think al-Baghdadi removal will create fear among the remaining leadership that maybe they are next to be targeted this gets them focused on their own security and it gets them to change how they do things perhaps leading to less effective operations it reduces their Chris on running the organization and planning this dynamic I think maybe the most important at the end of the day and we saw this dynamic play out with al Qaeda over a number of years after the US removed from the battlefield senior leader after senior leader in fact in the intelligence take from the bin Laden compound we aw an obsession on the part of Al Qaeda trying to figure out how the United States was targeting them with drones along the border it really consumed time and effort and focus and I think that's going to happen here too as people start worrying about their own security I think I should add here that in terms of these the two effects they can be significantly magnified by the removal of more Isis leaders the group has absolutely been damaged by the loss of Al Baghdadi and it can be damaged even more if we're able to follow up his death with either capturing or killing a number of other senior leaders that should be a huge focus for us right now and then finally on the implications front what does our history with terrorist groups say about the inspirational leadership role that Al Baghdadi played and and what will happen to it here I think we really only have one data point and that's Sama Bin Laden and in

They'd be doing wheelies with their bikes in the street and he was at the mosque well and the second thing that you hear about him around. Adolescence is that he starts to be outspoken when he sees people around him who are in some way violating what he believes to be Islamic law he gets into a big fight with his next door neighbor when his next door neighbor gets a Tattoo Baghdadi was irate about that and he saw that as violation of Sharia Law and he let his name cornell he got bolder and bolder as he became older so in his later teenage years he started to even a braid and reprimand people the owner of the mosques that he attended this is somebody who was older than him and who was a mentor to but he went so far as to chastise that man when he began smoking telling him quote when you stand up and recite the prayer the smell of your breath will make the angels fly away it sounds like Baghdadi is getting more and more dogmatic is that right that's certainly seems to be what people around him are noticing but it's not yet at the point where it's really raising red flags so he graduates high school we were able to actually get his high school transcript and from that we gleaned that he was not a great student but even though he has his grades he manages to get into the University of Baghdad specifically in their Islam studies department and they're Sharia law department and he begins a religious education he doesn't have a lot of money and so he's supporting himself by teaching Koranic classes and her by becoming a preacher and an her mom at a local mosque and it's at this local mosque that another trait of Baghdadi comes to light people always described him as shy as reserved as taciturn but by this point he's now in his early twenties and these qualities that perhaps we're seeing as weaknesses when he was a child they're now being interpreted as a sign of discipline a sign of somebody who doesn't have a loose tongue who says only exactly what he has to say and nothing more it's around this time as well that he creates a soccer team but he becomes the coach off with his her coach he's a soccer coach and he was actually a pretty good player based on what other people said and I get that there's some dissonance their jihadist groups have in the past declared soccer to be something that was haram forbidden but there it was he was a good soccer player he enjoyed playing soccer but here's the twist I spoke to members of his soccer team and what's interesting is they said that they would play soccer and at the end of the practice he would call them altogether and at that point he would start handing out the flights that we're trying to propagate the tenets of hobby as long and one young man that I spoke two he was a teenager back when when this occurred he brought this pamphlet home to his family and parents flew into a rage pulled him from the soccer team because they saw this as as something inappropriate and as something that could be dangerous for their son so he was out of step I think with the culture around him and it also sounds like he was even then willing to take risks to be spreading these very hard line beliefs right more and more as he's becoming an adult you're seeing a man who is able to sit on the sidelines and just live his own faith in a private manner art he needs to co-opt people and turn them over to his interpretation of Islam and he feels the need to police the faith of others a need to tell others how to be good Muslims and a need to call out what he perceived as transgressions against that faith okay so what happens next in two thousand and three America begins an invasion of Iraq with its coalition partners people were dispersing nobody wanted to be in Baghdad at this point in time because they were expecting that there will be strikes and bombardments he goes back to Samara allegedly and less than a year later in early two thousand four he picked up influenza at the home of his brother-in-law who adopt point had picked up guns against the American occupation the way it's been described to me is that he was essentially picked up almost by mistake he was a hanger on to his brother-in-law who who had become radicalized so the first thing that happens according to his hello prisoners is that he was named the Emir of their tent at Camp Buka there were specific tents that had dozens of prisoners each and he gets named the Amir of his tent and under his Amir ship he very quickly starts to incite violence against Shia prisoners that are being held inside this compound to the point that she prisoners who were incarcerated there began to clamor out the gates asking the Americans to be moved once the she us were mostly removed from his tent he then turned his attention to his fellow Sunnis and he began actively police saying the way that they practice their faith why is your beard Sir Lord how many times did you pray today why don't you fast it's the middle of Ramadan and someone one anecdote that I was told is they caught somebody smoking in intent and Baghdadi gave the order that he needed to be held down and two of his fingers were cut off with a shank that had been made from the metal inside the air conditioning unit that they had in their tent while Ya and interestingly that punishment cutting off the two fingers was that held the cigarette that is a punishment that I later heard about in Mosul from people who are accused of smoking under Isis so that seems pretty extreme I mean how rare is this kind of behavior in the camp I think it's very extreme and I think that it points to an evolution that happened before he got Camp Buka because that's a pretty out there place to be to be doing that the thing in two thousand four in capital come how does he get out of this camp the Americans let him out and of two thousand four less than a year after they captured him unfortunately at that point in time the American led coalition had far bigger problems this has been tough weeks in that country coalition forces have encountered serious violence in some areas of Iraq our military commanders were Ford this violence is being instigated by three groups there was an insurgency that was exploding all over Iraq some remnants of Saddam's saints regime along with Islamic militants have attacked coalition forces in the city of volusia terrorists from other countries have infiltrated Iraq to incite and organize attacks suicide bombs going off hundreds of people were getting held and they were busy trying to contain the chaos that had been unleashed in this country and he's not even on their radar screen he's not on the radar screen and in fact he very much disappears from view this is kind of the black hole in Baghdadi's evolution where we know the least about this period but what is clear about this period when we look back and we start interviewing people who are members of the insurgency we realized that in fact he was working his way up the ranks organization all along I have spoken to members of the Islamic state of Iraq this is the group that preceded the Islamic state and already in two thousand six two thousand seven two thousand eight you are seeing him in the presence of senior leaders of the group that goes on to be reappears for coalition officials is in two thousand nine when they do a raid in the house of one of the leaders of the insurgency and they find a personnel Ross Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi and really just a year later in two thousand ten the penultimate leader of Isis is killed and back daddy is named leader.

"Secrecy with leaks kind of approached by the House intelligence committee came under a very sharp attack from Republicans group them stormed the secure facility. that is how it's done like let's say that even if you follow all of the forums and do all the protocols right and there is a quid pro quo but you if it's in the national interest and of course all presidents do believe that their own reelection is in the national interest in so I suppose you could split the baby that way or something but the this is this is team everyone it's like if this is normal business normal business is bad and corrupt and we need to blow it up it's you know this is the river first of my habitual what aboutism which is what about if everyone's bad all the time burn it all down Nick I hurt you going in there but maybe maybe you prefer to leave that I was just GonNa say that you know Lindsey Graham who is one of the most disturbing figures in American politics he's emblematic of you know the non-drug words of the nonentities who end up becoming very powerful in the Senate there's only one hundred senators in a most of them are so unexceptional it's you know it's it's staggering but he's introduced a resolution condemning the house impeachment inquiry forty for Republicans have signed on nine haven't you know trump has very strong support and I think again all of this relies on you were here hiring basically one side of the story and the way it is done and that's assuming that the facts will determine this case or not but you know it's it's so you know I find it as somebody who wants to detach from process in terms of you know so many things about about tone policing in DC and about a propriety and stuff like that just it it it is just a way to to divorce us from actually talking about things that matter I feel like almost everything that's going on impeachment it falls into that category right now because we don't know we don't even know what he'll be impeached four they've got to come up with specific articles and that's when senator is and other people will really start figuring am I am I gonNa vote with what I think is right or what I think is right for my party or you know what is right for my career what is right for the country it's you know at this point we're just throwing darts so I I will add I I WANNA complicate that just a little bit and I think You are right that if you had to make a bet today on what the outcome of this is it's that trump is impeached in the house and not removed in the Senate and that it's maybe not quite a party line vote but that most Republicans vote to keep trump and I but I would just say that it's it much less certain I think that that's what's going to happen then it was even six weeks ago and there are a couple of signs that Republican senators might actually flip and that trump might actually be removed out of this and most notably I would say that the two sons that stick out to me most are Mitch McConnell saying I'm definitely GONNA hold the trial and then doing a a very sort of dry presentation to senators saying look this is how it might work and this is how it might go and the end related -Ly also were Hordley telling senators look you guys have to figure out what you're going to do in your district's politically I'm not gonNA try and run a campaign on this centrally Mitch mcco donald is somebody who likes to defend Republicans Republican seats and he is not he is what he is doing is keeping his options open he is signaling to us that he has is not going to reflexively side with President trump at least not yet and and defend him at least not publicly at least not I mean at least not yet the other thing that he did that I thought was very small but was somewhat notable because he didn't have to do it was trump said something like why you know I talked about the Ukraine phone call I've talked about all this with Mitch McConnell it was a beautiful call the most wonderful perfect call ever Mitch McConnell agreed and of course reporters asked Mitch McConnell about this McConnell was We'll I have no recollection of that call and made a face like a turtle and that is that is a way of saying I'm not going to be I'm not automatically going to be coming to trump's defense and on his side here I'm keeping my options open and when Mitch McConnell is keeping his options open that means that there is a live possibility that Republicans enough republicans not all of them but enough Republicans might join with Democrats in the Senate to actually remove President Trump I'll bombed are we that our main mode of political discourse right now is close readings of Mitch McConnell quotes out shits really not helping yeah yeah and you know because I if we can like our interest I suspect that our interest in the impeachment south it's not whether or not Donald Trump is impeached and removed from office or not not as much as how do we use this to actually push an argument for limited government and all aspects of of our daily lives and no no that worrying about whether or not Mitch McConnell is you know is saying this or saying that gets us very close to that I agree with that but I would I would say you're a complaint which is I I feel a lot of like I agree with it in in many ways your complaint is that we're not talking about the issues that matter and what I always say and what I will say again is one of the biggest reasons not the only one but one of the biggest reasons we are not talking about the issues that matter is trump is that donald trump being in the White House L. triumph he doesn't scramble if he scrambling your brain you're leading your brain Scrambled okay I understand why he scrambles republic Pinson Democrats he doesn't have to scramble everything else possible that I'm cracking like an egg every morning but he is scrambling brains of so many people I think that's just very clear that that he drives people crazy in in a somewhat unique way and while I don't know that removing him or getting past him will get us the discussions we need to have a I think it is at least unnecessary step and again that's not to say that I support or or impeachment or think that it is warranted in this case eh but it's going to be very hard to have a better political and policy discussions while Donald Trump remains in the White House and and in past him might be a step not all the steps but a step that helps that helps change the and this is the thing that we've been talking about on this podcast and at reason since the the beginning of trump's candidacy which is that he's post ideological right like we cannot have principal discussions about the correct policy proposals if there is nothing to fit them into and right now there is nothing to fit our ideology into there is no socket to plug are thing into sorry Matt with but if you get one of those two hundred and forty volts adapters the this is I think why the metaphor is coming to my mind because those adapters kind of Shitty they don't quite work and and meanwhile Democrats are doing a big ideological thing on their side so R- Republicans it's the opposite of our thing I mean Republicans are conservatives are pushing their pushing national conservativism they're pushing foreign fringe yeah now I really think that's like I I guess holding us bad enough are nothing is holding us back from from pursuing you know in articulating a libertarian yeah it doesn't have to go through rand Paul's doing that thing but that's of course true and we are doing that thing but at the same time there is there is it feels to me like because of this thing that Peter is describing because of the the post ideological brain scramble that is happening on both the left and the right due to trump it is harder than unusual to get purchase with the consistent vision of a free society that we have long peddled and I think that's genuinely to let the record show Oh that's a while for the past ten minutes while you sons a bitches have been complaining that we can't have conversations I've been trying to shift this conversation towards the deficit damn you people this is a big metaphor it's all a big metaphor last week on Friday the Treasury Department announced that the official federal deficit fiscal twenty nine thousand nine which ended in September as they tend to do those fiscal years a was nine hundred and eighty four billion dollars means that in his three years office trump has added more or more has been added to the the over national debt under his watch then president I w Bush did in his entire two terms although I don't know if that has been adjusted for inflation up Peter's sermon a Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the data showed that President Trump's economic agenda is working talking very specifically Peter as the resident actuary here this going to come a moment when we longer have economic expansion it's going to be very difficult in that moment to pay the old age entitlement the bills that are due to a lot of ah can necessarily say is is coming it's GonNa it's GonNa come a temporary pause in economic expansion is gonNA come at some point but hopefully the economic the the economic expansion does not appear in any of our lifetimes or our children's lifetime or really ever at all but guess what even if it doesn't come even if we are in a permanent expansion for the first time in human history and all of us all of us see only four percent growth or three three or four percent growth for the of our lives which is not what's going to happen the Medicare Hospital Insurance Trust Fund is still going to run out now might not run out in twenty twenty six which is it's currently projected might run out in twenty twenty eight or twenty thirty and then what happens what happens is they're going to be running on a cash flow basis so it doesn't mean that the have zero money what it means is they have not enough money it is insolvent and right now it's scheduled to be insolvent starting twenty twenty six which means it's only gonNA be able to pay about ninety percent of its bills in the net numbers going to dip down to about seventy percent over the in the decades after that and when that happens that's like not very long from now I just want to you know sort of well on the timeline here when that happens there is going to be a reckoning because we have tens of millions of seniors who rely on Medicare to get their healthcare and we have all these hospitals and doctors and jobs a huge percentage of the economy bound up in healthcare a big part not just medicare but government spending accounts for half or a little more of all health care spending in the United States and that's today even before we get a public option the pair or whatever the Hell Joe Biden Pizza to judge you know Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders come up with in the next six or eight years and so when that happens politics is going to have to revert to talking about it there's not going to be an option to just continue continue on because people are going to be owed things and there's not gonna be money to pay them in somebody's going to have to decide well what are we going to do about that because because people's pocketbooks and health coverage are going to be affected and it's just it just.

"Americans and I think that there was a resulting difference in the reactions on Sunday versus the reactions to the death of bin Laden But as Ramini says this is the most significant events since the death of bin Laden's I'm not trying to under sell it. I think it's just the president was trying to perhaps Overdramatize what happened in order to impress the American audience and an audience around the world. You Know He. He went out there with with the Washington Post. That was nine hundred. Words speech ended up saying about eight thousand words It was good to see him answering questions and providing more information but as always with this president. You do wonder about how much he's exaggerating. hydrating or trying to oversell his own stories and I think it's GonNa take days to find out more about that background and of course the other context here is the impeachment inquiry. You know this is. The highs is in the loads of the trump presidency where it's pretty clear now. Impeachment is inevitable in the house then the president announces this incredible. US military victory and yet all the alleged abuses of power that were investigated two days ago are still just as relevant today. I think that's the box. The President finds himself in curious as to get both of your thoughts. Brian I'll get you in the mini. I'd like to hear from you because generally only when we see presidents make these announcements including what happened with with Osama bin Laden. It's the president. He comes out he addresses the nation. And then you may see a subsequent addressed us by military leaders by White House press corps. You know who are taking questions more. Formerly that didn't happen here. The president was basically left on his own. As you said Ed from a nine hundred words speech to an eight thousand word press conference and he felt pretty unprepared or just kind of free wheeling so Brian. I'm curious to hear your thoughts. Certainly the only thing We we saw follow up afterwards. Defense Secretary Mark Espera who gave a couple of inter a few interviews and in the interviews. He acknowledged a couple of perhaps disparities or differences. Says he's ever example. He could not confirm that Baghdadi was crying or whimpering in his last moments the way the president trump described There may be in these cases Discomfort from government agencies about speaking after the president speaks. Because you're going to be asked to verify just said look many your An expert in this space. What were your thoughts on what the president said in that press conference In terms of the veracity but also just how he presented this information to the the American public. Well back to the box that Brian described that the president of finds himself in. I would add that in addition to imp impeachment each month inquiry. The other contexts happening here is that this announcement is happening on the heels of the catastrophic decisions that the president has made in northeastern Syria regarding the betrayal of an American ally. The Kurtz an area that used to be somewhat stable in northeastern Syria that was being held down by an American American ally has been thrown into chaos by the president's decision. So I think that's part of the context here and trying to make trying to trying to put a positive spin on a situation that is that is pretty negative recording the veracity of what he said. I know that he is most likely not telling the truth. About one. Specific thing in the press conference. The president said that they knew of Baghdad's whereabouts as of a couple of weeks ago. I know for a fact that they knew his whereabouts in at least July. I was contacted contacted by by sources at that point in time to to WHO said to me that they knew where he was and that emission was Was was being put into motion regarding the whimpering. God knows it seems. It seems farfetched to me that if a terrorist leader is hiding in a tunnel and this is a group of people that we know I used explosives and suicide belts. It seems farfetched to me to think that American forces would be so close to him that they would that they would hear him crying or whimpering Bernie do we see this as the potential for An Isis recruitment tool it. The death of Aalborg Daddy here. Is there some sort of or do we expect some sort of retaliation from Isis. Or what remains advice right now. I think that I think that first of all just like the modern are led to revenge attacks tax. We expect that we will see the same with with Baghdadi but I have to say that in the last hour since the announcement isis channels that I'm monitoring monitoring on the APP telegram has been relatively muted. There's not a lot of chatter now. This could be that the group is just in shock and is trying to decide what what to make of this. It could be that the themselves have not confirmed his death but I was expecting something more and and so far. I haven't seen that Romania. Color Machi is the terrorism terrorism correspondent for the New York Times. Many thanks for being with us. It's my pleasure. Take Brian Lots to talk about. You've been tweeting about this and about other journalists who may have known about the raid and we'll report waiting to report on it. What lessons should journalists be taking away from how to report on this right now? And in the era of enemy of the people rhetoric. I think it's worth noting. What happened behind the scenes on Saturday when James Laporta of Newsweek and other journalists were aware that raid was unfolding a raid that was targeting Baghdadi But chose not to report for at least several hours until US forces were out of harm's way now. These are pretty common choices that are made in these situations these. His toys have been made for decades by news organizations. But I in this era where the president is demonizing the media. I think it's worth noting when there are those kinds of daily patriotic acts by journalists. And of course you know the other. The other layer of this is the verification element It took hours to be have confirmed that I'll buy daddy was the target. And that and that he was killed in this raid and president. Trump's teaser was so interesting the way he came out and did something very big just happened but way to twelve hours to tell. Tell us what you know in in a different circumstance that would be very troubling of for example if the US stock markets have been open. I wonder what the reaction would have been also the president. What I thought was was really interesting was how he said you know it? It felt like he was in a movie watching this unfold in the situation room and a lot of the descriptions a lot of the language to use also sounded like he was describing a movie not in actual Rate of the significance. I mean what are you. Take away from that. He mentioned more than once He said quote I got got to watch so he was able to watch this rate unfold. Presumably that's through aerial drones or other aerial imagery The indication from the New York Times overnight is that there wasn't a live feed from a body camera that yes these special forces units do wear body cameras but they bring the video back for it to be digested later. So if the president is able to watch Gotcha a drone sort of video feed. He was able to see some detail but not perhaps the gruesome detail that he was he was later describing. He may have been briefed on that later. It it does strike me as that on the same week when The new call of duty video game comes out. This is the new edition of the game. It's called modern warfare. It it actually. It includes events like suicide bombings and others It's described as a more mature version of a a war video game. Developers talked about how the players of these Games have lived in an environment of endless war. And so these games have had to grow up that unfortunately the game and movie version of war has been merging urging with actual war in terms of how it is perceived and viewed. And that does a disservice to members of the military that are actually living this every day and of course now the president saying ain't he might want to put out some of the video of the raid and of course that may be his prerogative but I do wonder if that would be in the best interests of people are not after all. It was isis propaganda videos of journalists and other Americans being killed the provided fuel to the ISIS fire. Five years ago. And there's also the question of government you know sensitivity here too. You know the classified defied documents and information and what The American public should and shouldn't see I want to turn a little bit to what the reaction has been in the media. We saw a nate eight silver tweeted a fivethirtyeight tweeted that you know. Essentially and I'm paraphrasing here but about the quote unquote the libs not giving trump a pass for a good day. I I mean is is it. You know anyone's job to give the president a pass or is it just a question of reporting what is happening right now. I mean he's going on at once there. There are a lot of journalists is trying to find out what actually happened and how significant this will be To terrorism going forward and then there are partisans on the left and right that are that are making hay of this story story Certainly there are some Democrats or anti-trump voices who Barely wanted to give the president credit for this and said this is really a credit to the armed forces. Which of course is true? Give the most credit to the people on the tip of the spear regardless of WHO's in office regardless of whether it's a Democrat or Republican. I think we're going to see today. Is We're going to see this this backlash to the backlash where pro-trump voices are going to say. You're not giving the president of credit where the media is not giving the president of credit. You know these are the most boring predictable addictive sorts of fights that happened in partisan media Where we're tribe show their allegiances and I find it personally very tiresome Thought that The president going to nationals park and being booed by thousands of people on Sunday night was revealing about where we are right now The president was in a little bit of safe-space with a bunch Republican Congress re representatives He was in a luxury suite at nationals park. He was being cheered by his fans. There inside the sweet sweet but then you know all throughout the rest of the stadium you had this booing and I think it was perhaps a good thing for the president to be out there in public to be reminded that not everybody is on his side he rarely is in those environments because he's watching Fox he's hearing from his fans and he's meeting with his abortion and this wasn't a rally like city rallies where he can control all the crowd where he knows. The crowd is supportive. This was a public event That happened really on the heels of some people are saying you know this This military military action might have been his ace. I mean you know. He's under impeachment inquiry. This was the big draw. And it's he's still got booed and I think that is I'm curious first of all. Here's crazy how he reacts Second I'm curious about the reactions. Where where people were chanting? Lock him up and whether it's ever appropriate To be chanting lock someone up about a political official of course the counter. That is if the politician has committed crimes than lock him up. So there's that debate that we're GONNA have this Meta conversation today about that. I'm but to nate silver's point certainly there are some folks who do not want to give trump an inch. I think that that's always been true in our in our politics but it's so much more true now because country is so much more polarized I and I always think back to the approval. Rating charts graph the president's approval rating for the past three years almost three years. It looks like we've been in a really boring news environment. It looks Komo things right because only gone from about you know forty five to thirty five. He lives in this zone and never really rises or falls more than a couple of points. You would think nothing interesting. Has It's happened just speaks to how hard the opinions are. And that is why I do not think that even the news about Baghdadi will will change the presence damning I I agree and I wonder I. Let's talk a little bit about what we do here was we. The media tend to be Criticized a lot for moving onto quickly. Is the media going. Is this going to distract the media from other controversies. I e the impeachment inquiry and beyond or are we going to be able to do multiple things at once. They're out there are outstanding questions about the future of Isis us And about what exactly the significance of this raid was and those will play out in the days to come But I think the even in the wake of the bin Laden.

Brian Welcome back to the show thank you ruth. This is a significant development. I would say that Baghdadi is death is the most SA- a kind of cult of personality around himself whereby people who carried out attacks you a handwritten message audio recording specifically pledging slum extent I do think that this is a significant blow however I don't think it should be overstated is there about how significant this is president trump appeared very eager to claim credit for the raid this you in a session where he sometimes strayed from the facts and exaggerated his own he's almost moved into that sort of Zone I think this is one of those new dividing lines the truth and frankly unfortunately that's an open question whether some of those details will actually check out or the veracity of those claims and about those alliances so far we know for the the Kurds in the last couple of weeks by giving a green light to Turkey to invade their territory tha that was given regarding Turkey and Russia I am skeptical of those were confirmed as far back as July July for several months he wasn't an area his whereabouts there and of course you mentioned earlier opinion that a lot of experts are are saying including instead that al Qaeda continue to grow what's your sense for what may happen to the in the wake of his death when Osama Bin Laden was killed there was a clear number two I'm unlike bin Laden and really unlike any other terrorist leader before Him Baghdadi claimed their reading of scripture in order to be callous you need to show an ancestry the next person intends to also be Caliph of this imagined caliphate morning at nine am nine fifteen am it was preceded by cryptic tweet made in the media how do you compare that to what we saw yesterday I think in some ways the president was wants it to be seen you know bin Laden was always far more familiar and more fearsome in the says the most significant events since the death of bin Laden's I'm not trying to under sell it I think it's just nine hundred words speech ended up saying about eight thousand words It was good to see him answering questions background and of course the other context here is the impeachment inquiry you know this is the highs investigated two days ago are still just as relevant today I think that's the box the president finds himself and it's the president he comes out he addresses the nation and then you may see a subsequent addressed Ed from a nine hundred words speech to an eight thousand word press conference and he felt pretty news and in the interviews he acknowledged a couple of perhaps disparities or differences discomfort from government agencies about speaking after the president speaks in terms of the veracity but also just how he presented this information to the each month inquiry the other contexts happening here is that this announcement is happening on he had that used to be somewhat stable in northeastern Syria that was being held down by an American spin.

forty eight minutes right the United States brought the world's number one terrorist leader to justice Abu Bakar al Baghdadi is dead he was the founder and leader of ISIS the most ruthless and violent terror organization anywhere in the world the United States has been searching for Baghdadi for many years capturing or killing Baghdadi has been the top national security priority of my administration US special operations forces executed a dangerous and daring nighttime raid in northwestern Syria and accomplished their mission in grand style the US personnel were incredible I got to watch much of it no personnel were lost in the operation well a large number of Baghdad these fighters and companions were killed with him he died after running into a dead end title whimpering and crying and screaming all the way the compound had been cleared by this time with people either surrendering or being shot and killed eleven young children were moved out of the house and our own injured the only ones remaining were Baghdadi in the tunnel and he had dragged three of his young children with him they were led to certain death he reached the end of the tunnel as our dogs chase him down he ignited his vest killing himself and the three children his body was mutilated by the blast the total had caved in on it in addition but test results gave certain immediate and totally positive identification it was him the thugs who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear in total panic and dread fired of the American forces bearing down on him we were in the compound for approximately two hours and after the mission was accomplished we took highly sensitive material and information from the raid much having to do with isis origins future plans things that we very much want Baghdad is the my eyes demonstrates Americans relentless pursuit of terrorist leaders and our commitment to the in during and total defeat of isis and other terrorist organizations our reach is very long as you know last month we announced that we recently killed Hamzah bin laden the very violent son of Osama bin laden who is saying very bad things about people about our country about the world he was the heir apparent to al Qaeda terrorists to oppress and murder innocent people should never sleep soundly knowing that we will completely destroy them the savage monsters will not escape their fate and they will not escape the final judgment of god Baghdadi has been on the run for many years long before I took office but in my direction as commander in chief of the United States we obliterated his caliphate one hundred percent in March of this year today's events are another reminder that we will continue to pursue the remaining ISIS terrorists to their brutal end that also goes for other first organizations they are like wise in our sites Baghdadi and the losers who worked for him and losers they are they had no idea what they were getting into in some cases they were very frightened poppies in other cases they were hard core killers but they killed many many people their murder of innocent Americans James Foley Steven Sotloff Peter kassig and Kayla Mueller were especially heinous the shocking publicized murder of Jordanian pilot a wonderful young man spoke to the king of Jordan they all know when they all love to he was burned alive in a cage for all to see I the execution of tions in Libya and Egypt as well as the genocidal mass murder of your CD's rank ice is among the most depraved organizations the history of our world the forced religious conversions the are in suits prior to so many beheadings all of which were openly displayed for the world to see this was all that Abu Bakar of the got a this is what he wanted this is what he was proud of he was a sick and depraved man and now he's got Baghdadi was vicious and violent and he died in a vicious and violent way as a coward running and crying this raid was impeccable I could only have taken place with the acknowledgement and help of certain other nations and people I want to thank the nations of Russia Turkey Syria and Iraq and I also want to thank the Syrian Kurds for certain support they were able to give us she was a very very dangerous mission thank you as well to the great intelligence professionals who helped make this very successful journey possible I want to thank the soldiers and sailors airmen and marines involved in last night's operation you are the very best there is anywhere in the world no matter where you go there is nobody even close I want to thank general mark Millie and our joint chiefs of staff and I also want to thank our professionals who work in other agencies of the United States government and were critical to the missions unbelievable success last night was a great night for the United States and for the world a brutal killer one who is because so much hardship and death has violently been eliminated he will never again harm another innocent man woman or child he died like a dog he died like a coward the world is now a much safer place god bless America thank you any questions operation is are we had it under surveillance for a couple of weeks we knew a little bit about where he was going where he was heading we had very good information that he was going to another location he didn't go two or three efforts were canceled because he decided to change his mind constantly changing his mind and finally we saw that he was here held up here we knew something about the compound we knew it had titles of the tunnels were dead and for the most part there was one we think that wasn't but we have that covered too just in case the level of intelligence the level of work was was pretty amazing when we landed with eight helicopters a large crew of brilliant fighters ran out of those helicopters and blew holes into the side of the building not wanting to go through the main door because that was booby trapped and the there was something there was something really amazing to see I got to watch it along with a general Millie vice president pence others in the situation room and we watched it so clearly have you watched what I don't want to say how but we had absolutely perfect as though you are watching a movie it was that was that at the technology there alone is is really great a big part of the trip that was of great danger was the it was approximately an hour and ten minutes flight I we're flying over very very dangerous territory in fact some of our leaders said that that could be the most dangerous flying in and flying out and that's why last night we were so quiet about it we didn't say anything and I didn't make my remark on till after they had landed safely in a certain area but the the flight and the flight out was a very very dangerous part there was a chance that we would have met unbelievable fire Russia treated us great they opened up we had a fly over certain rush areas Russia held areas Russia was great Iraq was excellent we really had the great cooperation and you have to understand they didn't know what we were doing and where we were going exactly but the ISIS fighters are hated as much by Russia and some of these other countries as they are by us and that's why I say they should start doing a lot of the fighting now and they'll be able to I really believe they'll be able to yes Jennifer they gave us not as a military role at all but they gave us some information that turned out to be helpful the Kurds Turkey we dealt with them if they know we were going in we flew over some territory they were terrific no problem they were not problem you know they could start shooting and then we will take him out but a lot of bad things can happen plus he was a very secret mission we flew very very low and very very fast but it was a big it was a very dangerous part of the mission getting in and getting out to equal we wanted an identical we took an identical route we met with gunfire coming in but it was local gun fire that gunfire was immediately terminated these people are amazing they had the the gunfire terminated immediately meeting they were shot from the air ships in the tiny.
