Kyle Seraphin: How the FBI Currently Classifies Terrorism Cases

"Was this about funding reclassifying a lot of domestic terror cases and using kind of J 6 As a way to get more funding or do you think it's ideological or is it sadly is it both Well here's what's funny The FBI has certain mandates that they have to fulfill There are funded mandates where Congress gives certain amount of dollars and says go do this with this money And then there's unfunded mandates where they tell them to do something and the FBI has to figure out how to do it And one of the funded mandates that the FBI has is terrorist investigations That's the reason why a lot of the money since 9 11 has been thrown into the FBI into the counter terrorism division But there are two branches of the tree of counter terrorism one is domestic right now which is obviously the favorable branch at the moment And the other is international but international is where the money comes in or at least a big chunk of it comes in from Congress And so what's really wild is I'm hearing from my buddies who work counter terrorism that they're getting briefed They have to go through their domestic terrorism cases and look for any connection to international terrorism So they're going to go and look at the so called white supremacists or whatever they've got January 6th people that were getting rowdy in the capitol and see if they can make a tie that they were in the same online forum or like the same post that someone in ISIS did because the FBI is looking to lose not gain but lose significant amount of their funding from Congress to the tune of a couple $100 million The number I heard was 300 million And the extent the unit chief out from the international terrorism division to go to the field office is to try to get these guys to find a connection from their domestic terrorist investigations because they've overdone them this year to try to tie them back to international terrorism so they don't lose that all with money which I think is kind of wild but it tells you that it's probably more ideological based

Darren Beattie: FBI Allegedly Tampered With Footage on Jan. 6 Bomber

"So let's get right to it Darren We covered this over probably an hour on yesterday's radio show and at least a half an hour on the podcast So the January 6 case as you well know only you and Julie Kelly seem to be doing anything about this We were told it was an insurrection worst thing since 9 11 We've heard all the hyperbole And yet there's this bomber out there who was supposed to have a left a bomb in front of the DNC and RNC and yet it's weird we don't hear anything about it yet as you indicate in the peace the FBI has 39,000 video files Why are we not hearing about it And why haven't we seen that video You know that's a great question because we consider the larger context they've been trying to shove this narrative down our throat that January 6th is the biggest terrorist event since 9 11 It's worse than 9 11 and so forth and so on And arguably the only or the most quote unquote terrorist like element of the January 6th story are these explosive devices that were planted at the RNC and DNC respectively And there's basically zero interest in finding out who this person is The FBI released surveillance footage allegedly of this pipe bomber but as revolver news showed in our last piece on the pipe bomb they're deliberately withholding critical footage of the actual money shot That is the case of the type armor actually planting the bomb Why did they withhold that image Which you mentioned We showed that there's a very very strong chance a very high probability that not only did they withhold critical footage but they tampered with the footage that they actually released Specifically they artificially reduced the frame rate of the surveillance footage in order to make it more difficult really next to impossible to identify who this person is

Can Republicans Move Quickly After Next Week's Wins?

"The Republicans realize they have to move quickly? Assume we get the Senate in the house. We don't get the Senate in the house. It'll be a long slog. But if we do, can they get together and do a reconciliation to a budget in two weeks? Is there isn't any reason after 9 11 we reorganized the government in two weeks? There's no reason the Republicans have to take forever. Will they move quickly? Yeah, I think that's what they're signaling with the commitment to America. I mean, they have a blueprint. We did with a contract with America and that's one of the advantages of that as you know what you're going to do, beginning on day one, and they're going to start off with energy because energy is energy costs are at the heart of inflation. And in addition, energy is as you know, a huge affordability and national security issue. It's probably the one issue that stands for all the other economic issues and they're going to move quickly on that. And that's exactly what we have to begin produce energy at producing energy. We do.

How the DHS Became the KGB

"An FBI official described to the intercept intercept being reassigned this year from the bureau's international terrorism division where they worked on things like Al-Qaeda and ISIS to the domestic terrorism division to investigate Americans. Their job involves penetrating online chat rooms and discussions to disrupt them. Now we are always talked about the famous we talked a lot about the famous disinformation governance board. When DHS announced and then quickly shut it down. But even though the board was shut down, its mission continues through other pernicious avenues. Immigration custom enforcement border patrol Secret Service they now all have their own anti disinformation components. The government using your taxpayer dollars without congressional oversight without congressional consent on a daily basis is no longer focused on ISIS or Al-Qaeda. No, they're using the terror apparatus that was built post 9 11 to go after you. Maga supporters, America first, conservatives, freedom lovers, this entire apparatus is for shredding the First Amendment, policing speech, and they are inserting and intervening into the distribution of information. How is this legal? And the answer is it really isn't.

Leaked Documents Outline DHS's Plans to Police Disinformation

"There was a massive story. That quite honestly, we should have covered yesterday. And we're going to lead with it. It is a story that should be dominating the entire news cycle. It's a story that thanks to the intercept, we have learned some incredibly consequential information about the Department of Homeland Security. So let's just kind of first set our terms. What is the Department of Homeland Security? DHS is a branch of government that was founded after 9 11. I believe completely unnecessarily. DHS was duplicative in some ways. TSA is under DHS border patrols under DHS. It was just another branch of government that at first was sold to us as being able to go after the terrorists. But in reality, DHS is actually here to go after us. So all of this new information that we have about Department of Homeland Security again, this should be the number one news story in the country. Not the Pelosi story, not even the polling story. This right here should make the midterms even more important than ever before. So the intercept, which is a rather effective website I have to say. They used a mixture of leaked documents and materials obtained through recent lawsuits found that the Department of Homeland Security is actively engaged in colluding with social media companies to police your speech. So now that the war on terror is over and is basically gone away, DHS doesn't close shop and fire their employees or go focus on something else. No, this is the permanent domestic surveillance industrial complex. You see, DHS has now pivoted to a new self appointed mission. Congress never gave them this mission. We never voted on it. This is the fourth branch of government just gone awry. Their self appointed mission of fighting toxic narratives online, assisted by the FBI. Now, the two have been holding by weekly meetings without any knowledge from Congress or other people, which makes really makes you wonder what is Congress doing all day long with media outlets. Since the 2020 election, that's right. The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security have been actively holding meetings with media companies.

The Ideology of Wilson and Obama

"The ideological roots of the book is about, well, there's a lot of Hegel in history. There's a lot of Lincoln in the founders. There's a lot of Woodrow Wilson and finally someone is explained it. Now, Jonah Goldberg has tried a few times. Fine writer, under the shell, no he's a friend of yours. He's tried a few times in big books that only people like me read to explain where this came from. You went back and tried to do it again. Would you explain to people why you think it's important that they get what Wilson was and why it matters and why the framers Lincoln and Reagan are different from that. I think it's important to understand the ideological roots of the decline in American sea all around them. As I said, Barack Obama is the most ideological president since Wilson. Now Barack Obama's are careful though to mask his ideology. Sometimes he let the mask slip like for instance when he was attending Jeremiah Wright's church for all those years. Jeremiah, I remember the infamous pastor who said 9 11 was America's chickens coming home to roost is that God wouldn't bless America but rather damn America. This is not some passing relationship. I mean, Barack Obama saw down his church satin skews for years, even had him officiate his wedding, Michelle Obama. Or when Barack Obama said that America wasn't an exceptional nation. What he wanted to say, we're going to fundamentally transform America view. Now, I don't know about you, but I don't know many people who think that if you love something, you should want to fundamentally transform it. I can't imagine the fetching this Hewitt would take too well if you said honey, I love you, but I want to fundamentally transform you. With Obama, though, it's somewhat rare that that ideological slips. With Wilson, you see it out in the open. The first openly, the first president who was openly hostile and opposed to our Declaration of Independence and our constitution. He said they were outdated. They were obsolete. They belonged to a Newtonian age of checks and balances, not a Darwinian age of evolution. He said that the moral basis of our nation, the natural, equality of mankind, that none of us as Jefferson said are born with saddles on our backs to be written or spurs on our heels to ride. Was outdated as well. He had this conception of history with a capital H that it was evolving and therefore mankind could be thankful that we could have heaven on earth that we could achieve. Utopia. The founders knew that this was all nonsense. They understood as Madison said in the federalist papers that government is the greatest of all reflections on human nature. And our nature, nature is that we're falling creatures.

"This is just such a huge point in its a shame that so many people miss it. The January 6th was many, many times worse than 9 11, but for a totally different reason. This is where a political party was able to take all our three letter agencies set up all these misdirection, please on January 6th entrapment and a whole bunch of things. And then wine that into all kinds of abilities to go after everybody that was supporting the other political party Trump.

Why Didn't Any Democratic Senators Challenge the Ukraine Aid?

"You know, I grew up in the kind of early 2000s, my earlier memories were 9 11, the Iraq War, the Afghanistan war, and all the repeated foreign policy blunders of kind of the attempted Bush empire of invading sovereign countries and displacing leaders and then leaving them more soft than we found them and spending trillions of dollars and lots of American lives lost. As I got older, I got more and more vocal kind of against, what are we doing here? What is the purpose? And not being necessarily reflexively a dub. I think we should find terrorists and kill them if it makes sense, but nation building and far off distant lands is just so foolish and wrong and stupid and silly. You are always a leading voice on that and kind of Ron Paul in the 2008 1009 was a big voice on it. But kind of explain to me why is it that there is there was not a single Democrat senator that decided to challenge the vote, the idea of sending money to Ukraine. How is that possible? The Democrat party is firmly within the groups of the military industrial complex. You're right. There is no daylight or difference between the Democrat party and the Hillary Clinton George W. Bush neo lib neo con mindset and ambition. And this is this is something that is such a stark difference from what maybe not the entire Democrat party, but at least there were voices in the Democrat party traditionally who have been voices for peace who have been voices of reason saying, hey, we shouldn't be just, you know, writing blank checks out to the military industrial complex. We shouldn't be going and launching regime change wars around the world and trying to be the policemen of the world. That's changed. Like you said, both in the House and the Senate on that first big vote to send $40 billion to Ukraine that there wasn't a single Democrat that voted against it. Bernie

Many of them have died, violent deaths. But I'm just saying, just put that out of your mind. But when John's mirac raves and raves about someone, it's really not difficult to us for us to understand, we need to get this person. And so we're just really grateful to you for coming on. And tell my audience a little bit about yourself. I mentioned that you're the author of a brand new book called defenders of the west, the Christian heroes who stood against Islam. What is your own background? I know you have an Egyptian background as well. Yeah, so my family is the cops Coptic every time I say that word coughs have to people ask me what precincts I come from, but cops Coptic of course the indigenous Christians from Egypt so my parents immigrated to the United States in the mid 60s. I was born and raised here. Because of that background being coming from a Christian minority sect from the Middle East, surrounded by Islam. I was always interested in, of course, in those issues, but then in college, as you mentioned, Victor David saints and was my professor for many years and I'm proud to say a friend and mentor and so forth. I naturally gravitated towards history, military history, and then long story short in 2001 when I was writing my master's thesis with the Victor Davis as Victor David Sanchez my chair. It was actually about the first military encounter between Islam and the west for really Christianity, Christendom. And because I was employing the languages I was studying, Arabic and Greek and so forth. And anyway, long story short, and then that's when 9 11 happened and I went to Georgetown university, studied there for a little bit in their contemporary center for Arab studies, which is, as I later found out, it was very ideologically charged. And I left there. Despite stellar performance, I might add straight age, but I had to leave there just because of the political reasons and then I got a job at the Library of Congress in the near east section where I dealt with Arabic materials and other Middle Eastern languages. Sounds writings by Al-Qaeda in the early 2000s and long story short. That got translated into my first book, the Al-Qaeda reader,

You know, I get asked all the time. Is this a business? I got the thing. I got the name from my dad who nicknamed me that soon I was three days old. Is that true? Stuck. Why? It's true. And it's stuck, the only explanation I've ever had was that I looked like a little Dutchman and I couldn't begin to tell you what the looks like. It looks. You don't have time for that. But so what was it? What was your given name? William. William, all right. But I don't know, maybe was your dad a fan of Ronald Reagan, who was called Dutch? No, you know, I don't have any explanation. My mom tried to stick with Bill or William till I was 6 years old and she finally gave up. I've been Dutch ever since. After 9 11, I changed it as a part to a part of my legal name because I kept getting in trouble at airports because I'd signed Dutch sheets or show them something and, oh, your passport says, William, you know, anyway.

"I just can not believe that this headline is true.

Now I'm going to read the article to you. It says what happened when a high school biological female speaks up and says that she's not comfortable with biological male, a biological male changing with her in a locker room. In this case, a Vermont high school, the local school officials reportedly decided that they'll settle the issue by banning the use of the locker room. According to WCA ex and Burlington Vermont, it owes a drama erupt this season as a biological as biological females from the Randolph high school volleyball team when a biological male made inappropriate comments while changing with the biological females. If the station reported that parents and athletes raised concern with the school and that when the wheels and that's when the wheels of the transgender movement begin to roll. I'll continue to read the biological females were the problem according to the school policy.

"So when driving through Colorado and the cocaine, we had a little bit less at that point as you can imagine. And it was in a baggie. And there we are on route 80. And a state trooper pulls behind us, and he's following us now. Now, like I said, we had God bless America taped to the back of the windshield. But still, a couple of dark skinned guys with Baldi's and a yorkie, driving through Colorado, that would be enough for a cop to at least follow us for a while. And he's been behind us for a good several miles now. He's not moving off our ants. That'll make you shit a brick when you're carrying a lot of dirty stuff. So suddenly Neil says to me, you know what, I think that I know there's a gas station and a car wash up here very soon. I've passed it and I've stopped here a number of times because gumballs made that drive before. That was my first trip. I said, wherever it is, bro, find it and let's go there. So he says, you know what? I'm going to point to the car wash. Hand me the code. I said, no, no, no, I got it. Just do what you got. He was hand me the Coke asshole. You're famous. You have a TV show. You can't hold this or you'll lose everything. You know what? He had a point. So I handed it to him. And he drives into the car wash, but before he stops the car, he says, go into the store and get us some sodas and get us some shit to eat some candy and meet me when I'm done with the car wash. This is sure. And wouldn't you know the cop pulls into the fucking car wash as well? And he stops right behind gumbo. But he isn't going to car wash. He stops and goes in the store. Now he's looking at me up and down and I got the dog in my hand. So after the wash, I hop back in the car and the cop is following us again. And I say, Jesus Christ deal it's curtains. I said, where is it? He says, don't worry. Just look straight ahead. I see where's the bad rose? Just don't fucking move. Just look straight ahead. Stay calm. A few minutes later, the cop puts his siren on. I'm thinking, we're fucking dead. We're going to jail in 9 11. And he speeds past us. Even gave us a little nod. Like, got to go, boys. I mean, I breathed a sigh of relief like you can't imagine. I go holy shit. All right, where's this stuff? Give it to me. He says, hold the wheel. And when I do, Neil leads to his left and fish is in the back of his pants and pulls the bag of Coke out of his crack. Now that's what Friends and family do for famous people. Okay?

Revolver.News' Darren Beattie Discusses Manufactured White Supremacy

"Joining us now is Darren Beatty from revolver dot news. Darren, welcome back to the program. Excellent to be back as always. So Darren, thank you. So I want to talk to you about this one particular story. Is it true that the federal beer investigation is misrepresenting what might be considered white supremacy arrests or incidents in their reports to make it seem as if there's a bigger problem than they're actually is. Walk us through this story. Well, it certainly seems that way on the basis of whistleblower accounts. And just to contextualize all of this, this alleged national security threat posed by white supremacy dates back to really the Trump presidency where the DHS, the Department of Homeland Security, which is a national security bureaucracy set up in the aftermath of 9 11 to protect us against foreign terrorism, declared that white supremacy was the number one threat and since the DHS declared this a number of other national security institutions have followed suit. Now evidently, the FBI is getting on board. And the problem with white supremacy is there's just not the supply to meet the demand. And so it has to be manufactured. And it can be manufactured the kind of laborious way of actually setting up entrapment schemes like what we see the FBI did in the Michigan Whitmer case. But the easier way to do it is just cook the books and manufacture the numbers and count certain things as white supremacist terror when they really have nothing to do with it to feed into the desired narrative.

"Trump national security adviser john. Bolton trump didn't really understand the nature of the middle east. he didn't understand the range of threats that we saw and he didn't particularly care to learn what they were. I think you have to understand the things that he says. As relating not to coherent international policies or domestic policies but relating to the political future of donald trump from the beginning hit talked tough. He aimed his decisions at his political base reporter. David muir to prison. Ucla mr president you told me during one of the debates that you would bring back waterboarding and a hell of a lot worse tired. I want to keep our country safe while he railed against his predecessors embraced the dark side methods of vice president dick cheney as far as i'm concerned we have to fire with fire. I have spoken as recently as twenty four hours ago with people at the highest level of intelligence. And i asked them the question. Does it work does torture work. And the answer was yes absolutely. He ordered gitmo to remain open. Dramatically accelerated the boom strikes air strikes targeted killing and he ordered a raid the to the death of the leader of isis. He will never again harm. Another innocent man woman or child died like a dog. He died like a coward and trump wanted something more. They sent the secretary of state to negotiate with america's longtime enemy the taliban he couldn't end the war on his watch. Osnos after four years donald trump had discovered something like what predecessors had discovered. Which is that. It's very easy to announce that you're going to be able to get out of these wars but it's very difficult to actually do it. And he found himself still embroiled in this war in afghanistan still contending with remnants of isis and the wars in syria and iraq and it was in its own way grinding on.

Peter bergen president obama maybe the first person to accept the nobel peace prize And use it as an opportunity to lay out his philosophy of war. I cannot stand idle in the face of threats to the american people for make no mistake. Evil does exist in the world. A non violent movement could not have halted. Hitler's armies negotiations cannot convince al qaeda's leaders to lay down their arms to honey cobb in terms of nobel speeches this is probably the most belligerent speech that you have as a nobel prize acceptance and talking about the fact. There's sometimes you have to wage war. It was the most non pacifist peace prize acceptance that we've we've ever seen. President obama came to office facing two wars inheriting was left by the bush administration. On all the magic he can muster solving problems. He's inheriting facing two wars. He knew it was a huge at deadly explosion in afghanistan. Tonight at eighteen robinson's washington past obama's global analysis of the situation was bad. Afghanistan was the right war and iraq.

The i knew the culprit told the president. It was saudi extremist osama bin laden the founder of the islamic militant group al qaeda director. We had been projecting a spectacular attack by al qaeda was. We had the names of some of the people involved that we recognize they were al qaeda bin laden was operating out of afghanistan.

There was before nine eleven and there was an after nine eleven after nine. Eleven gloves come off. Garry shrill and cia officer my last meeting with cofer. Basically to me your job is to find bin. Laden killing can bring his head back on ice. And i said well that's the but the clearest direct direct order i've ever received as officer i i'll do my best. We'll we'll try to get the job done two weeks after the nine eleven attack small. Cia strikeforce arrived in afghanistan. They needed to deal with the extremists.

The american dollars bought the cooperation of the talibans economies rival militias and warlords washington post reporter. Susan glasser. I remember immediately realizing the horrific choice that was being made. We got into business right away with the warlords who had been running and ruining afghanistan for many years we're brutal killers and they were up against the taliban which were also brutal killer. South devastating american air bombardments did their part to weaken the taliban in washington post reporter not tender second. We drop these massive bombs called daisy cutters on taliban troop positions in the northern part of the country essentially let afghan forces to rise up in different parts of the country And push out that. The taliban regime within weeks the taliban had been driven from the capital city. Kabul as jubilation assumes we've liberated and the sooner al-qaeda's brought to justice the center afghanistan will return to normal but for all the celebrate. The truth was that the primary target bin laden had vanished. The mastermind of nine eleven was believed to be hiding in the mountain stronghold of tora bora a small contingent of american forces joined afghan fighters. There those of us on the ground a few dozen international reporters we far outnumbered the number of american Special forces ncaa who were on the ground there. There was a bigger journalistic contention at tora bora than there was american fighting force. Us and allied forces bombs tora bora but couldn't get bin laden. The team leader wanted hundreds of us special forces on the ground. Gary berntsen cia. I ask for ground support. And i knew that we needed. Us rangers the longer we waited the further. He fell back to the border. The military did not send in reinforcements was a catastrophic mistake because of miscommunication some bureaucratic infighting the most elite of us troops weren't dispatched there.

"You wanna hear my nine eleven story. Yeah me neither. Because what i want to talk about is what happened the day after and every day after that a new podcast miniseries is called nine twelve. It's about how nine eleven the day became nine eleven. The idea each episode of nine twelve looks at how september eleventh was used how it became a tool and a joke a horror franchise and a story that we just couldn't let go. You'll meet the amateur filmmaker whose conspiracy theory spread around the globe and the rollerblading tour guide. Who tried to take him down. A pakistani business owner who finds hundreds of his neighbors have disappeared overnight. There are famous. Hollywood writers and directors secretly enlisted by the cia to stop the next attack and a drug dealing former dead head who becomes a radical jihadist. I'm about to play you a preview of nine twelve. I hope you like it. Be sure to follow nine. Twelve wherever you get your podcasts or you can binge all seven episodes right now free on amazon music or with one plus in the days after nine eleven it really did feel like nothing would ever be funny again. Welcome to the late show. This is our first show on the air. Sense of new york and washington were attacked. Even the men on late night had abandoned their post. Then shuffled back. One by one cowed by their lack of words to describe what had happened. Letterman came. I watching all of this. I wasn't sure of that. I should be doing a television show because for for twenty years we've been in in the city making fun of everything making fun of the city making fun of my hair making fun of paul well. Conan came the next night. I will be very honest with you. I have no idea how to do what we've been doing. I know i have no idea how we're going to get back to doing this again. That's how we all feel. And then jon stewart two nights later. I was a producer on the daily show. Then standing just offstage with the rest of the staff feeling like someone had pulled the parking brake at full speed. Our senses of humor had dropped right out of the bottom of the car. So we're we're gonna take a break. And i'm going to stop slobbering myself in the desk and we're going to get back to this and it's gonna be fun and funny and it's going to be the same as it was and i thank you. We'll be right back. I just assumed well. We can't do humor todd. Hanson was the head writer at the satirical newspaper the onion at the time. Everyone on the staff assumed that and so we cancelled it and we just went dark and of course who cares. It's just comedy right. But here's the problem the onion isn't just a scrappy. College comedy thing anymore. They have financial backers they have payroll. They have add biased fulfil hell. They still have to pay. They might be giants. They can't just stop printing whenever they want. They have to put there next issue. A whole newspaper full of topical humor by the news of the day jokes about whatever everyone is talking about right now. You see the dilemma here. I don't recall at the time thinking we stand on. The cusp of history. Gentlemen are jokes will determine humor for it wasn't like that onion writer. John cruzan it was. It was listen. I know it's been a week. But i just want to go home and curl up in a ball son more todd hanson the head writer and so we just assumed well. We'll just have to come up with material that has nothing to do with the current events it's just like observational humor about life or something but even saying that. We'll just not talk about. It felt absurd. I mean what else was anyone thinking of writer. Carol kolb i mean. Obviously you're not thinking of anything else so if you're sitting down to write something you're writing about this. We decided to do was come up with ideas and so we were getting anywhere and decide from there. So as the nation mourns and new york still smolders literally. Ten writers show up at the offices to tell each other nine eleven jokes to see if it's even possible to to this at all. There's just like a bunch of stinky unkempt writers you know with the little notebooks. Everyone wrote just a mountain of stuff. Staffer mike low. And then you do your onion meeting where you know you pick your stuff and you pitch in the form of headline pitching in the form of headlines. That's right no caveats. You know you can't be like now. I'm thinking maybe with this one. We do kind of knob. Just gimme the headline. because that's what the reader gets right and you do it in front of the group so you either get a laugh and everyone builds on the joke or or silence and it's pretty clear and you move onto the next one and as it begins they can see what a challenge threading. This needle is going to be. I remember at the time that there was a particularly good. Structurally good joke written by tim. Herod one of the staff writers then and it was america stronger than ever say quadra. Gone officials we. We didn't use it because it's at the expense of the pentagon and and all those people had died and so you know even though that was normally what the the onions tone would be. It just didn't feel right for that issue. Does that make sense quadra. But you just can't do it. We had lost our bite. We had lost all sense of ironic detachment. We had become sincere and that becomes the way forward..

Richard simmons running from cops and most recently the line is new show is called nine twelve and the series is about what happened the day after september eleventh and every day since nine twelve is about how nine eleven. The day became nine eleven. The idea and how that idea has shaped the world or culture and ourselves for the past twenty years you'll meet the teenager whose conspiracy theories spread around the globe and the rollerblading tour guide. Who tried to take him down. You'll follow the staffers. For the satirical newspaper. The onion who woke up the morning after nine eleven and realized they had to do the impossible. Right jokes hilarious headlines about the news of the day now on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. We finally have enough distance. Maybe to see some things that we couldn't see before and to learn some lessons that have gone unlearn for the past twenty years. I'm about to play you a preview of nine twelve while you're listening be sure to follow nine twelve wherever you get your podcast or you can binge all seven episodes right now on amazon music or with wendy plus in the days after nine eleven it really did feel like nothing would ever be funny again. Welcome to the late show. This is our first show on the air. Sense of new york and washington were attacked. Even the men on late night had abandoned their post. Then shuffled back. One by one cowed by their lack of words to describe what had happened. Letterman came. I watching all of this. I wasn't sure of that. I should be doing a television show because for twenty years we've been in in the city making fun of everything making fun of the city making fun of my hair making fun of paul well. Conan came the next night. I will be very honest with you. I have no idea to do what we've been doing. I know i have no idea how we're going to get back to doing this again. That's how we all feel. And then jon stewart two nights later. I was a producer on the daily show. Then standing just offstage with the rest of the staff feeling like someone had pulled the parking brake at full speed. Our senses of humor had dropped right out of the bottom of the car. So we're we're gonna take a break. And i'm going to stop slobbering on myself in the desk and we're going to get back to this and it's gonna be fun and funny and it's going to be the same as it was and i thank you. We'll be right back. I just assumed well. We can't do humor todd. Hanson was the head writer at the satirical newspaper the onion at the time everyone on the staff assume that and so we cancelled it and we just went dark and of course who cares. It's just comedy right. But here's the problem the onion isn't just a scrappy. College comedy thing anymore. They have financial backers they have payroll. They have add biased fulfil hell. They still have to pay. They might be giants. They can't just stop printing whenever they want. They have to put out there next issue. A whole newspaper full of topical humor about the news of the day jokes about whatever everyone is talking about right now. You see the dilemma here. I don't recall at the time thinking we stand on. The cusp of history. Gentlemen are jokes will determine humor for it wasn't like that onion writer. John cruzan it was. It was listen. I know it's been a week. But i just want to go home and curl up in a ball some todd hanson head writer and so we just assumed well. We'll just have to come up with material that has nothing to do with the current events. It's just like observational humor about life or something but even saying that. We'll just not talk about it. It felt absurd. I mean what else was anyone. Thinking of writer kolb. I mean. obviously you're not thinking of anything else so if you're sitting down to write something you're writing about this. We decided to do was come up with ideas and we were getting anywhere and decide from there. So as the nation mourns and new york still smolders literally. Ten writers show up at the onion offices to tell each other nine eleven jokes to see. If it's even possible to this at all there was just like a bunch of like stinky unkempt writers. You know with their little notebooks. Everyone wrote just a mountain of stuff. Staffer mike low. And then you do your onion meeting where you know you pick your stuff and you pitch in the form of headline pitch in the form of headlines. That's right no caveats. You know you can't be like now. I'm thinking maybe what this one we do. Kind of knob. Just gimme the headline. because that's what the reader gets right and you do it in front of the group so you either get a laugh and everyone builds on the joke or or silence and it's pretty clear and you move onto the next one and as it begins they can see what a challenge threading. This needle is going to be. I remember at the time that there was a particularly good. Structurally good joke written by tim. Herod one of the staff writers then and it was america stronger than ever say quadra. Gone officials we. We didn't use it because it's at the expense of the pentagon and and and all those people had died and so you know even though that was normally what the the onions tone would be. It just didn't feel right for that issue. Does that make sense quadra.

"after 9 11" Discussed on The Red Box Politics Podcast

"Adult. It however difficult it would be this must breast in addressing the whole range of mesh and its remaining to do this. Ni- or with new would not be something easy. It would not simple and it may well be. The threat could not be eradicated. But they have to be addressed out to be recognized. And that's what i was. I was saying. I remember now so clearly. The feelings i happen to feeding so many people. The something dreadful has half. There was the shock of the murder the mass murder so many people. It had been all caniza organized by people who are committed to their own ideologists who were influencing others around the world very intentional and the trestle though the response to nevis simple solution would never be simple. Never be complete and it also what's happened. Not that was not repeated on that scale. Terrorism forms of course continued and has to be addressed in the hill range of ways. So bernard jenkin search. Mp watching the video back from as you're sitting right behind in dunkin's methods been officially leader of the opposition for what about twenty hours to the shutter defend newly-installed shouted defense secretary. Then what was your. What's your memories of that time. How do you prepare a new leader of the opposition response to such an extraordinary event in some respects and was quite well prepared himself because he'd been shuttered event secretary before becoming leader and he was. He had good contacts with the american administration. The bush administration and in fact probably much better context. The boss majority of government. Mp's labor government ten peas and he had A very clear view. The americans are thinking and was very confident that we could support the prime minister. If the prime minister gave his support to the americans there were labor. Mp's will be very windy by this and You would be surprised. How quickly iraq. And into the conversation. I mean within days because the Iraq was unresolved problem rogue state developing weapons of mass destruction. And something they we were. We had to reassess every kind of threat and iraq was perceived a right wrongly as a much greater threat off. I let it had been beforehand and The a course. Two years later it led to the invasion of iraq But i the atmosphere. I mean everyone was in a complete state of shock. I remember the day it happened. I was having lunch and my friend went. Somebody said In my office. I think better come back to the office. There's something gay all you need. Snap is I went back to my office and Initially picked up the soda twin tower one of the towers on fire. There's just picking up the phone and during in because it wasn't actually leader at that point. The leadership was going to be pulling day. I'm watched the second hour. Go into the second I got hold of it. And then i said. Do you know what's going on. And he said yes and you'll be shuttered defense secretary So it was very helpful. Lever I'm good an enormous of mind to read and it became very evident very quickly what we should have known This event was predicted unpredictable in many respects By people who had not had sufficient exposure to decision because And we had a lot of private meetings with the uk intelligence services minister defense foreign office and that sort of fan. it very quickly became. I mean the one thing. That this really underlined brilliant Security services are an how well world advised the prime minister and the leader the position. Safe quick to there was so quickly on top of it. They knew that this was al-qaeda almost from the get go and They knew that Al qaeda was based in afghanistan and it became it was surprising. Actually how long it took the full any military action to be taken. And i think there's also reflected the fact that Actually the united states didn't sort of lash out and the way that Clinton had al qaeda bombing basis in deserts. There was no reaction of that sort. It was a much more considered strategic reaction. My goodness through mistakes in that reaction In spent quite a bit of time trying to persuade the prime minister that we shouldn't. I've stayed the taliban from From from from from afghanistan. We should be looking for moderate taliban moderate push to Who would murder omar regime because For students with the majority in afghanistan that would never be a credible government in afghanistan if it didn't include the pushtoon which means which meant including the taliban and we need to recognize that the town of something different from al-qaeda but there was complete blindness about blasio and Conversation feels very very familiar. Now as as well. I've just wanted to see talking that but at the extraordinary circumstances to become a leader of a political become a leader of the opposition in the middle of what is clearly an enormous global political diplomatic Security crisis whether it's a parallel a bit to what keven has been through the past eighteen months and how as a leader of the opposition politics and how you impact when frankly nobody cares what the leader the opposition's saying all doing to a large extent because this hugh single huge thing is dominating so much dude sort of the fight was sealed a bit of dhaka smith's leadership just because he nobody ever. I only country that was essentially conservative policy. That Actually the policy was lucky to have chosen into space. Addition was very familiar with with the with the with the with the self. I mean other thing was. We knew that the labor party was going to be a big problem for tiny blah backing american military action yes therefore the role of the opposition was absolutely crucial and giving confidence to tiny and the americans with the brakes would and The there was no vote about gains down. Stop but the There was it was not necessary the stages but the But the important thing is if if the official.
