"Not been listed there by well about the missiles cracked there is at al Asad must be three years in Iraq yeah the the wire door near out alot al Saud is they used bait forty seven miles around and the population even whatever able to fully staffed the population was in very small parts of the body it's so you could you could say you get outside but you might be forty miles away for more people are or are not my brother not forty miles left of the developers with forty seven miles so you could probably five or six seven miles from where the people were and you could still declare you hit al-assad's but I mean I guess if that's what they were trying to do that's what they succeeded in doing as a whole and then letting out a word to the Iraqis by the way you might want to watch for some missiles of course they they would have had to know that somebody of of the Iraqi side we're going to tell the Americans I mean well that is there is there is something else that I have not heard anybody say is that al Saud I guess it would probably be old east out of out of a well thought there when I left there and I believe they're still there there is probably a five or ten thousand contagious three of Iraqi soldiers there when we were leaving had moved in the in crowd of Alice soft eight so I mean that you were putting they you know they were putting the Iraqi soldier any cannot much in danger as the Americans and the Americans there are there any notes in a drought we will buy the base is built in a broad river by if you look if you look fled across the base you really cannot see the base feels it's in the bottom of a river by elaborate river yeah I mean if if it yeah yes well being so they can say we hit our side right but I in the area real della flawed is not working near the brake fellas alright you dear bye right and like the other all up all of our other bases like Fallujah and liberty Chrysler all right your honor the population right with god it is mild yeah so I gather a pretty sparse and pretty pretty sparsely populated area Raleigh all right thanks for that perspective and therefore your services well here is a cliff in the Dothan Alabama hello cliff thanks for the call I think another raining apologist but I think your listeners may have forgotten that in nineteen eighty eight we mistakenly shot down an Iranian airliner leaving Tehran lease it was it was heading in our direction I mean this was was heading in the wrong direction I mean no mistake is good but at least that would add some bases of semi plausibility to it this has none well if you're correct we barely tried to contact him ten times they rainy and claim their squawking on I am a fan of we didn't pick it up we did everything we could and we unfortunately the US seven sounds had to take it down but mistakes happen and I just wanted first hello yeah and it's it's worth noting that in fact that was a mistake but that one as you know it was a plausible stake it was the outgoing object aiming at our direction the irony is in this case if in fact it was a missile that shot that down Amy had something that was leaving Iraqi their space from a variety of the airport it is not too likely that a Ukrainian airliner full of Canadians was going to be the basis for an attack on a rod as it departed from that are on the air base so again that's a little little tough to to follow their let's go to RG in the Ventura California good evening LRG well perhaps we don't have RG maybe we do baby weed out anyway let's go to they could Decatur Illinois next to Nick and welcome to the Jim Bohannon show hi Jim I do on my main point is something different so it's a little just say something real quick about the plane planes don't crash that often and for just so happen no crash in Tehran in the middle of hostilities this seems impossible you know it's it was probably shot down I don't know if it was on accident or purpose but you know and it's it's not too bad in a scenario in which anybody paying attention would mistake outgoing aircraft from Anna Ronnie an airport as an attack I mean that just defies well yeah and and if that if that were the case I mean there are more than a few jets that leave Iraqi airspace gonna why weren't there several dozen jets shot down that day I mean if it at any outgoing played was fair game I mean it's just a it's a little bizarre is all I'm saying probably a mistake with aids in during hostilities everybody you know what I'm going to get your opinion real quick for a kid my main thing I want to say is the Democrats Sir were up in arms a few months ago if you remember over from pulling its troops out of Syria Dr and it's like they you know you made a big deal out of that then and now when he takes out somewhat Saloni terrorist basically even former general Petraeus has said that this guy was worse than bin laden so why why are they trying to limit his war powers well I know that the here that's not gonna go anywhere but I don't know why Nancy's even doing that well is it because of the fact that you really care if the the underlying hypocrisy of inconsistency of the democratic position and that is very simply that the the Democrats are opposed anything Donald Trump does I mean I I I wish you were more complicated than that but it's not more to come we'll be back on the bull headed.

"Times. Is it now edge six six times six six six six six six sixty six times. Sorry I had to just throw that in there. I loved John Candy Recipes and Anyway Cutter Investment Tori also bailed out Kushner's sixty six fifth avenue devil building right. So that is kind of the company of this Zuberi Guy. Zuberi was also already indicted On a bunch of other stuff related to donating a bunch of money to the Clinton campaign and the Obama campaign so this is one of those chameleon freeloaders by an access So this new structure of justice charged comes because you bury deleted emails between himself and others at the time of his nine hundred thousand dollar donation the trump inaugural including emails with a foreign donor. Who transferred five point eight million dollars to the berries account at the time he funded the donation mom boulevard neck? Seth Abramson knows does Then after prosecutors notified him that he intentionally deleted the emails he actually called his service provider like AOL to ask How how to make sure his his messages weren't stored on a server somewhere so like after they after the prosecutor said we know you deleted these emails Bro? He called up cost medications and was like. Can you delete delete. Delete my emails Costano and I just need you to wipe them off of whatever server there. He actually did that. He's already facing like I said previous charge. And that's in California. Because because he offered six million dollars to buy the silence of six witnesses in his case he acted as an unregistered agent for Turkey and Libya and he illegally sought to burnish the image of Sri Lanka with US officials shows including members of Congress. He's busy guy so this guy has just pled pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in the southern district of New York. I think and beans on this as part of the trump inaugural investigation and the subpoena that was launched by the Southern District New York back in February of this year. And that tells me that we might be seeing more indictments now like I feel like the case is ripe related to trumpet. Girl girl related to trump. Can you refresh my memory a little bit. What were the major issues if you will? That came out of trump girl. What we're what? What's the sort of what the media parts of this case? If you will. Well first of all they raised one hundred eight million dollars and they'd really kept no good records. Twenty six million went to one of Malania friends. That's right Wolf Cross that who always draft right on my fantasy mentally. I've been bringing her back up because of this. I didn't draft safari although he hasn't has been indicted yet and he hasn't entered a plea agreement so that was going to pick on him this week. He's Ripe Ripe. But this could be Jordan's week week for Barrick Right. That's what I'm GonNa do if she if I tell the story and she picked Zuberi. I'M GONNA pick bearing and barrack and so walk off was Maloney event. Planner honor that she pants on some money to embarrass was worked on the inaugural Berkeley non along with Rick Gates and my money is on. Rick Gates was assisting I've been saying this since February with the inaugural investigation southern district New York. That's why Rick Gates sentencing kept getting put off and put off and put off. So that's that's what I think. I wonder what they found out from him playing nicely. Yeah a lot more than they found out from. Flynn yeah that's for sure And I do you have a good news story at the end for Flynn but right now we're getting word that at least ten rockets have hit the Al.. Asad airbase in Iraq Where there are a lot of? US troops this is the base that trump was referring to when he said we aren't leaving Iran unless they pay us back for our expensive air base And he it's also where trump visited troops at Christmastime and twenty eighteen member shocked us all he went and visited. Troops rocket attacks are kind of the Mo for the PM for Shia militias in Iraq. Aronie Schimmel in Iraq over the last couple of months As this was breaking we didn't know much about it We didn't know basically if it was a one off attack from single militia show using short range rockets. Or if it was part of a larger Iranian retaliation for the killing of Sulejmani if it's part of a larger response it's coming very fast and very direct as we know the US S. has said Iran can escalate or negotiate leaving the ball in their court. Basically and trump has said he killed Sola money to de-escalate tensions people that you knew nothing about the region Killing so Amani would be the equivalent of like North Korea killing our chairman of the joint chiefs and we talked earlier about an advisor to the Iranian president saying they will target the American people. They wouldn't target the American people they would just target like trump and his properties or put out a list of properties. They didn't really explicitly say they would target them. But how many has said Iran will retaliate. And they will target US bases so is this attack part of that. Or is it something else we're getting the answers now. and also Iran's Iran's Revolutionary Guard is taking credit for the attack as beans listeners. Know or Mosey right listeners. Know Donald and Ivanko worked with Iran's Revolutionary Guard to build Trump tower in Baku John. It's the building looks like a giant Vulva and it helped that whole project helped shirk unions and protect Sulejmani from sanctions sanctions and the Iranian guard. Laundered money through that project As recently as twenty. Sixteen post-election so imagine you do a crime with a foreign friend and then kill that foreign friend and then his family blows up. Your house doesn't sound lobby at all. Right she says But we're just waiting to hear Well at the time that I wrote this we were waiting waiting to hear. If these were short. Range rockets launched from reinforces in Iraq. Or these were big boy missiles which would indicate a much larger problem and just in As we sat down to record the Pentagon is reporting according now that Iran has launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against US troops at two bases in Iraq Secretary of Defense has been in touch with Iraqi prime minister there. There are casualties Al Assad We don't know much but we are hearing that they are on the Iraqi side because it's a huge base. Yeah and and there are rocky forces there. Would American troops have already pulled out of these bases. We have no idea. I don't think so I. I am seeing right now from C. N. N. It says IRAN THREATENS TO ATTACK INSIDE AMERICA IF THE US response to these missile attacks in its telegram channel the Iranian Revolutionary Guard says the Pentagon reports that the US will respond respond to Iran's attacks. They then say this time we will respond to you in America. So that's the update as of five fifteen pm while there goes the whole. We aren't after Americans so yeah it's it's only January seventh. Ag Only January January seventh. Yeah somebody put out a meme like that escalated quickly writes about the two thousand twenty. Yeah right it was like AH Happy New Year Impeachment shells is still insane. Australia's on fire and are we at war with Iran. Yeah yeah and I haven't even started talking about what's going on in my the private life. I will soon but not today. Today is not that day but suffice to say some things all right. We're we'll come back to that story but I also wanted to let you guys guys know. It appears now Russian. trolls are targeting veterans. On social media. We actually knew this from the mole report but now there's a special report out. The trump administration is ignoring it for nearly two years. Now there's been mounting evidence that Russian trolls are deliberately targeting troops and veterans with disinformation and propaganda the social media manipulation is being weaponized too so social discord in veteran communities internees according to the Vietnam Veterans of America. Va that the vso the VSO's a veteran service organization and the VA veterans Vietnam. Veterans of America is a veteran service organizations if you hear me say Va.. That's Vietnam Veterans of America you music. Vso that's a veteran service organization of which V is what the VSO has warned born to va and the Department of Defense that way back in March of twenty eighteen. Not even last year But the agencies have done nothing Even though they were given evidence of this Vietnam Veterans of America also as trump to intervene this past December wrote him a letter And warned him of fraudulent activities ranging from identity theft to election interference but still oh no response from the administration and the has declined to discuss their inaction so when they were not just asked about the interference in the propaganda. They were asked about whether they aren't doing anything and and a veteran spokesperson Who I just? I can't even believe you know what here I'll just tell you what she said. Veterans are the targets of many of the same types of fraud as the rest of society. So that's kind of like saying. Oh well everyone in America's being targeted with propaganda so don't worry about it and also that veterans are proportionately disproportionately targeted Weiner respect the troops dude. Yeah and she's a spokesperson for the Department of Veterans Affairs Rod so most of his data what it does does a dozen formation does. It's that's germ or German. Oh my God. It's Russian. Disinformation in December Moncia Desa Most of it champions veterans and denigrates liberals and minorities and most carry a pro-trump message no one fake viva page about a quarter of a million followers. The House Veterans Affairs Committee House Veterans Affairs Not Senate held a hearing in November but the trump administration agencies. These are still sitting on their hands An example for the inter- Internet Research Agency. Russia bought at least one hundred thirteen. Ads aimed at veterans during the two thousand sixteen election. Page names includes vets for trump Also that was operated out of Macedonia so be vets trump out of Macedonia. There's being patriotic which made an appearance on the mole report. That's out of the Internet research agency in Russia and the common themes are memes. About how you. You hate veterans if you kneel at Colin Kaepernick so any anti Colin Kaepernick pro veteran meme. That's it's really okay. It's really shocking to me. How much of a sticking point the caller key thing is for so many people on the right A friend of mine was just home for Christmas with her trump's affording father and she said that he brought it up like three or four times of course of her being there for less than a week. Well he has been now. He's probably targeted and brainwashed. by Russian disinformation right or Macedonian if Another very popular meam Is Basically when you you know when they use resources. It's about using resources. Sources for veterans at the cost of immigrant refuge. Meaning like how can we give. Immigrants Healthcare when veterans are going hungry. Those are also that one specifically from the research agency. It's the next time you see one of those means. Call it out as foreign propaganda report it. It's not real. Yeah and none of the information is true. Anyway I spent a Lotta time fighting on those means to somebody put that out and I believe this has nothing to do with the other Blah Blah Blah. Wasting my time because I'm actually drawing attention now to that mean So don't battle it don't fight it. Don't argue it just say this is propaganda and report it I think it's important that we do that Especially for you know because we knew in the in the mole report that they were specifically targeting groups like black lives matter and gun rights groups and religious groups making a mockery And the thing is well. Is that with out facebook themselves taking a real stance on this making a real effort as we go into the twenty twenty election as we all hoped that they they would It's on us because it's platform y'all still use as our mo- social media platforms. None of them are owned by great people. You know So it's on it's on us. It's on each other to educate and to report and if we're going to be on these platforms to try to make someone difference. I suppose. Yeah but arguing is not necessarily the way it isn't And especially especially. Don't re tweet it or re post it with your own thoughts yet. Because you're just you're giving your amplifying it And I think trump just recently said he had dinner with Zuckerberg Berg like recently So Nice Yeah I mean they're not I mean th th the remember the grilling by a few months ago. Yeah Yeah I mean she was essentially saying so. You're it's okay with you if I lie in your platform then yeah that's fine with you. Yeah you know. And he didn't have an answer for that in and I'm I'm I remember. Once upon a time thinking that Mark Zuckerberg I mean. I didn't think I'd ever thought that he was like a progressive here or anything but I thought that he had some fucking scruples now but he doesn't give a shit about democracy now so many It's up to us to give a shit yes cool.

Al Asad airbase and in Erbil according to the military These ballistic missiles were fired from from Iranian sovereign territory. This is video Iran claimed shows the missiles Coming in to the Al Asad airbase in Iraq. Now we're not able to independently confirmed affirmed that's what this video is nonetheless. This is what they are broadcasting and they are saying that is exactly what you are watching. We are now learning the secretary of state. Mike Pompeo the Defense Secretary Mark Esperer or have just arrived at the White House. President now meeting with his National Security Team Kaitlan Collins is out front at the White House Caitlyn. The question here is a president who earlier today said he would talk talk attack Iran in retribution. If they struck back and who earlier said in a tweet he could strike and perhaps a disproportionate manner is now facing attack from Iran Iran. which is a game changer in and of itself with ballistic missiles targeting? US troops Any understanding here on what they're talking about In terms of response well Erin and we know the president almost specifically preview. This happening saying that if Iran did strike an airbase that had American troops at it that the United States would respond. And of course. You're right the question is going to be. How are they going to respond a little over under an hour ago? The White House said the president was consulting with his national security team constantly being briefed updated on these attacks. We now know that's happening in person because it's not just the defense secretary as per here arriving as you saw him carrying that big bag with him. The Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is also so seen arriving just a few moments before he was seen sitting in the back seat of his car pulling up. That's right outside.

Aides are now inside the West Wing. Would the president is. They are going over this and we're waiting to see how it is. They're going to respond now. The president is pretty familiar with one of these airbases because he visited it in two thousand eighteen and then the vice president Mike Pence was also been on the phone tonight with Democrats on Capitol Hill was just a few months ago in November when he visited the troops at Thanksgiving. So we're still waiting to see what it is that the How the president is going to respond bond but he has been foreshadowing that he would respond and like you said maybe in a manner that was not proportionate to their attack? All right. Thank you very much CAITLYN COLLINS I want to go live to Baghdad now are Damon is out front there are what are you learning.

"Out front tonight. The breaking news Iran tonight taking credit for an attack on an airbase in Iraq. Where American troops are? Tonight they are based there and this is according to Iran's state run press television the Al Asad airbase that is the one we were talking about. it is about one hundred and twenty miles west of Baghdad. Hit by ten rockets. According to what we understand a state TV in Iran saying tens of rockets obviously we are trying to get the details in the information and according to the White House at this moment. The president has been briefed on this counterstrike. We have a team of reporters standing by I From around the world. We are live in Baghdad in Tehran at the Pentagon and the White House. We are going to be going to our reporters for the latest. Here as this snooze is literally developing moment by moment so i WanNa start with Arwa Damon. She is out front. She is in a Baghdad. Obviously very near this al Asad airbase are what are you learning on the ground. Well at this stage all we are really able to confirm and this is from a Sydney member of a paramilitary force that is based race. Not Too far away from itself is at ten rockets. Did hit the base. We don't know if any casualties were caused. Just yet brought given the heightened tensions that exist here there is a lot of speculation as to whether or not this is just a warning to the. US who you'll remember at this stage is not yet said that they will be withdrawing. Despite the fact that the Iraqi government did pass vote through parliament that is meant to be setting the course for the Americans and other foreign forces to leave here. This happens against the backdrop of a significantly heightened threat from any number of iranian-backed doc. Proxies you operate on the ground in Iraq and most certainly have significant capabilities and also worth noting that the US military here had not suspended. Its Anti Isis operations had suspended its training missions to be able to focus on force protection. Airbase is a massive sprawling a complex the largest I believe in Iraq that houses not only US forces but Iraqi security forces as well it is potentially potentially any number of targets that Iran or its proxies in Iraq could have had in its sights but at this stage still really trying to get more details details as to exactly what was fired. Where was it fired from? And what sort of damage did it. 'cause all right Arwa. Thank you very much as I said Arwa Arwa in Baghdad as she gets more information from on the ground She's going to bring that to us. I want to go now to the White House. So where Kaitlan Collins is standing by and Caitlyn Obviously we know the president has been briefed. What are you hearing from the White House? Yeah he's been briefed. The White House says they're aware of these attacks. Aaron they're not confirming any details about them and essentially. What Stephanie Grogan told US tonight is the president is going to continue to monitor these attacks and the updates about them with his national security team? We know the secretary of State. Mike Pompeo was here at the White House earlier but but we did see him leave earlier today. I do want to point you to a tweet. We are just now getting from speaker. Pelosi's office one of her aides. Her Deputy Chief of staff saying that she did speak with Vice President. Mike Pence tonight just moments ago Around six thirty four. PM They say in this tweet and they said that the vice president breached the speaker. All these attacks on these these facilities that are housing. US troops in Iraq. Now Erin we still have a lot to learn as Barbara Starr was saying from the Pentagon just a few moments ago about these attacks and what's going on but let's also also remind our viewers about that threat from the president just two days ago where he said that if Iran did retaliate for the strike that general that was killed and if they did retaliated hey by attacking an American airbase he said and I'm quoting him now. We will be sending some of that brand new beautiful equipment their way and without hesitation making a reference to recently purchased military equipment so the President essentially previewing. What could happen if this was the type of attack that Iran was going to go with? We're still learning more though and we'll keep you updated on what the president is doing what he has to say about these attacks. All right thank you very much Kaitlyn. And as the White House has been silent thus far We are hearing more for From Iranian state television and from the International Revolutionary Guard Corps itself which is taking credit for this strike. Fried Bacon is in Tehran. At this moment able to monitor senator that and monitor those signals. That you're seeing Fred. What are they saying? They're obviously saying that. The the Revolutionary Guard Corps is the ones who are behind this attack on this airbase they tens of rockets and missiles have been fired at that base in fact on the Farce News Network which is one of the state run news agencies here in Iran. There is some video purporting to show one of those missiles hitting the base. They are seeing that. I was a ballistic missile hitting leading the Al Asad airbase. I'm just seeing this. We're obviously not able to independently verify that but that obviously Aaron would be an absolutely significant turn of events because one of the things that we've seen seen so far with these attacks on American bases inside of Iraq. Some of them. By pro-iranian proxy forces is that they've often used lower tech a shorter range rockets if this was indeed a ballistic missile a short range even medium or longer range ballistic missile. Then it would be the Revolutionary Guard Corps not just showing that it's lashing back out at the US or taking seeking revenge at the US as they put it for the killing of Qassams money but then also showcasing some of their military capabilities. Essentially saying they don't just have have proxy forces that can Wage low scale warfare but they also can use some more conventional weapons like these ballistic missiles. Of course the ballistic missile programs has been a huge concern not just of the trump administration but many administrations before that and indeed of the international community. But I want to say a key thing that I've been hearing from senior Iranian commanders. Here over the past couple of days. They've told me they were obviously absolutely enraged by the killing of money they said unequivocally there would be a military reaction military retaliation. They said that military retaliation would be against military targets. So this certainly does seem seem to fit that bill now. The Iranians are saying or have been saying through various channels. They don't want this to escalate into a wider conflict. They don't want this to turn to award. They said they wants to retaliate. And they want it to end there but it's not clear how long retaliation is going to last. And how big that retaliation is going to be the head of the Revolutionary Illusionary Guard Corps came out and said Aaron that there would be eight strategic retaliation that that strategic retaliation would happen over a wide geography though that seems to indicate indicate that this could just be the beginning not the end and that it would happen over a longer period of time. Erin all right thank you very much. We're going to be going back to fried throughout the hour. Obviously he is hearing from people on the ground there commanders on the ground in Tehran and also able to monitor what they are seeing and obviously there Television network is not broadcasting in what they say is the the actual strike itself of what they claim are ballistic missiles I want to go now to Democratic Senator Doug Jones. Here's our reporters continue to Scramble all this information together He sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee. Senator I appreciate your time tonight. This is not what we expected to be talking about. I'm sorry that it is but nonetheless here we are. We understand understand. At least ten rockets have hit that American airbase. US forces are there. We don't yet know anything about the the the the scale of the damage or any possible casualties. We do know. Iran is taking credit for direct personal credit. What is your initial reaction? Well I think we see what's going on. I think one of the things that we have to make sure we do is we. We've got a briefing set tomorrow and I'm hoping to get more information right now. We're picking up the same information as senators that you are in the media and what we know is is that the president and the administration with killing of solemn ceremony is put Americans at risk. And what I want to know is what are we doing now. We can go back and we can revisit.

"And just keep you commonsense opinion on current events is what I do your top stories Donald Trump yesterday the president in his first trip to a war zone as president along. With the first lady so Malania was with him in the national security adviser John Bolton they made an unannounced. Visit to some of the five thousand troops in Iraq. The president went to Al Asad airbase in an and bar province of western Iraq. The president think troops for their service and defend. Ended his decisions to withdraw US forces from Syria where they've been where they've been aiding in the fight against ISIS. The president went on and said that the US commitment cannot be open ended and that other seriously wealthy countries should help pay for rebuilding Syria. It president also said I just don't want America to be the suckers of the world. The president said that there are no plans to withdraw troops from Iraq. More on that in sixty seconds yesterday, a major bounce back and some and then then some on the stock exchanges. It was a historic day yesterday as the stock exchanges all sectors bounce back yesterday. Now, the president yesterday went to Iraq. And it was on announced last night. I saw a video clip of him at a press conference in Iraq. And they asked him were you scared about flying into Iraq? And he said, of course, we are. We're flying indoors on he said, but I gotta tell ya flying in an Air Force One with all the lights off, nor the landing gear often, everything totally dark and all the window shades pulled so nobody could see us night thought really do you really have to announce that Mr President? I don't need to know that how about not telling that, let's not advertise that goes against totally what you're representing in that as keep people guessing, you just hope people partially how you get in and out of those places. So that that stuck out to me? The other thing that stuck out is the president said, you know, what other seriously wealthy countries should help pay for rebuilding Syria. And I agree with that. I think it's just common sense to me. It's common sense. One of the things he's talked about as we are not the world's police force in. It's interesting to me is I watch talking heads on television talking about that. Many of those talking heads are saying wait a minute, especially those on the left. No, we can't pull out. We gotta be there. Don't listen. We're gonna leave a vacuum there. If that's the case. But this is the point where I think from negotiation standpoint, the president is basically saying, you know, what step up it's not just on the American people so could be a negotiation tactic. We'll have to see where that goes. But in the end, the Syrian pullout time will tell what happens and in the end, the president United States is making that call. He's lost some staff over it. But it looked to me like the troops were very supportive of that. And at the end of the day what we need is. We need a world of force like NATO to get involved. We need strengthened countries to manage some of the world's problems like that. It can't just be the United States. It can't just be us. We need help from others. Speaking to help.
