"It's late fall. Nineteen fifty two in washington dc inside a bar near the capital robert. Taft takes a sip of rye whisky as he flipped through newspaper. The drink burns as it goes down and half grimaces. but it's not the whiskey. That's giving him pain the headlines staring at right now just weeks ago. The nation went to the polls cast. Their votes results were unequivocal. They wanted republicans and power. White eisenhower won the presidency in a landslide. Republicans took control of both the house and the senate. This should be good. News for taft. Who's a republican senator from ohio because come january he'll be the new senate majority leader but asked half sinks deeper into a lather booth. He stares at the newspaper and comes face to face with his one remaining problem. Joseph mccarthy republican wisconsin senator who also won the election and who once again is dominating the headlines carthy is a serious liability somehow. Taft has to find a way to deal with taft places. Tumbler on the table and looks up from the paper. That's when he sees a friend approaching. George aken a powerful republican senator from vermont trim with messy fuzz. White hair he slides into the booth looking at bob. I'm sorry i'm late. don't apologize george. This is what's grinding me. Task slides the newspaper across the table and glances. All mccarthy says there will be no mercy in the fight against reds. Looks like joe's up to his old tricks george. They're more than tricks. Let's mccarthy is going to be a real problem for us despite his promise. He said he'd back off after he won reelection tampa down. It's only been a few weeks and he's added again. He can't help himself. He's just gotta be in the papers. How let them have it. No i don't think you understand george. I'm coming in a senate majority leader. This is our chance. We've got the white house. We've got both houses of congress. We need to be disciplined and organiz. But this guy. This guy is turning things into a circus. You know what they say. There's no business like show business georgia. I'm being serious here. We do not want or need a circus. We don't need his crusade against communists. I know i know it gets people to vote but it makes no sense to rail against communists in government not now and not when your own party controls. The government goodness gracious. Can't he see that. A waitress approaches and sets down. A couple of drinks ache and takes a sip of gin and looks back at taft bomb. You think we would have won both houses. If we didn't have mccarthy beyond beyond joel created a winning issue got people stirred up and they showed up showed up at the polls in droves which means we owe him. Yeah that's the way it works. Not but you don't see he's going to be a distraction. He's going to drag the party down. This is our chance to push big bold policy. We have the power of the lose that focused every time. There's a new headline about mccarthy some crazy accusation about speiser aa genzer secret dossiers. And and and that's not all of it. It's not just bad for the party. he's gonna do real harm to real people. Well that's that's the thing is well. We've got to find a way to neutralize them. Do that without crossing a hell. If i know you know the worst part is i probably have to make him a committee chair. Oh god yeah going to be the majority leader. Put him somewhere. He can cause any harm stroke ego but keep him powerless. Taft taps his fingers on the table as he thinks and he smiles powerless. s damn. Good idea what mccarthy's already senior republican on the government operations committee that it's a it's a natural chairmanship. Good title but government operations. You'll be stuck reading a report on how much we spend on paper clips. I had a boy bomb. See problem solved. It is so as drink to that..

"It's june ninth. Nine hundred and fifty in milwaukee wisconsin. Joseph mccarthy stands backstage and a large auditorium closes. his eyes he listens to the rumblings of thousands of people. they sound like a gathering storm cheering and chanting. All waiting for mccarthy to speak mccarthy tries to steady his mind he needs to focus shake off his nerves. The speech needs to go perfectly right now. Mccarthy is at the republican state convention for wisconsin. Thousands of voters have descended on milwaukee and all are waiting to hear mccarthy preach about the evils of communism and the existential threats that america's currently facing it's a political platform. That's one mccarthy international fame but it's also earned him a number of enemies just eight days ago one of his supposed. Republican allies spoke out against him in a fiery speech on the floor of the senate. The senators seemed proud of herself. Mccarthy couldn't help sneer at her false attempt to look like a patriot he knows what real patriotism looks like by going after people who are bent on destroying america still after the senator finished her speech mccarthy could tell she done real damage she had actually swayed some of her colleagues and now it seems mccarthy's enemies are lining up against him. That's why today's speech is so important. If mccarthy wins over all these people who have the strength of solid voting base he won't have to worry about political enemies. Washington mccarthy takes another deep breath as a priest recites the pledge of allegiance the crowd applauds then mccarthy takes the stage right away. The applause turns into wild cheers and the audience comes out of their seats. Mccarthy waves and steps in front of a microphone. His likes fuel shaky. He's given lots of speeches like this one. But this feels especially monumental so. He braces himself and delivers the line. Like he knows the back of his hand. It's good to get away from washington and back here in the united. States crowd roars. N- all at once mccarthy knows he doesn't have to worry you launches into it viciously attacks margaret chase smith the senator who spoke out against him at the mere mention of her name. The crowd begins to boo mccarthy. Grins and says people like smith claimed that he's on a witch hunt that he smearing people but the truth is his. Critics are the ones on witch-hunt they're whining and moaning while he gets done. The real work of fighting communism. The audience again bursts into applause mccarthy decides to double down. He announces that. This isn't time for caution not when communists are taking over korea not when stalin is getting ready to launch a nuclear weapon carthy then pauses. He knows what he's about to say could be the biggest risk of the entire speech. His aides have told him to temper his accusations. Stop throwing out allegations. He can't back up. It said it could be his undoing. This time mccarthy knows there. There's a reason he's standing on stage and they are not so he pulls out. A briefcase grabs a handful of papers. He lifts the papers high and tells the crowd that he's holding new list a list of one hundred six state department employees who are loyal to the communist party and he says that the time has come to root them out. The crowd roars. Mccarthy feels like he's floating off the ground it's true he did just take big risk. There are no actual names on that list but for mccarthy that's beside the point he has no doubt that enemies have infiltrated the government and if he exposes them he'll not only make the country stronger and more secure but you gain an even bigger following following strong enough to protect him from even his most powerful opponents a year later on serene hurries through the us capitol as he makes his way to the senate chamber needs to find his boss. Joseph mccarthy before it's too late before mccarthy makes terrible mistake serena's a former fbi agent and he's been helping mccarthy as the senator looks communist and the us government for the most part. It's been good work even if mccarthy's often reckless with truth and while mccarthy has taken a lot of political risks non res- risky as the speech. He's planning to give today to worked on it together but serene realized it was mistake. That's why he has to stop. Mccarthy from giving speech serena arrives at the senate chamber walks out onto the senate floor. The senators desks are mostly empty. It seems that members of both parties have little appetite for joseph mccarthy or any of his big accusations serene spots mccarthy and hurries over to the senator as he walked over the car. he looks up seeming. Both surprise inherited. Him serene apologizes for bothering him right before. He's about to give a speech new orleans and closer whispers that he thinks mccarthy should seriously reconsider what he's about to say carter shakes his head and tell serene absolutely not. It's time to make a big splash. Serene lowers his voice and asks mccarthy realizes what he's about to do a matter of minutes. He's going to accuse george marshall and being a communist conspirator. George marshall the secretary of defense a five star general from world war two the author of the marshall plan a program many credit with saving europe at the end of the war. Mccarthy.

That is partly just un-american or anyway semi parisian sensibility that is all about the small pleasures of everyday life The french have a much more Much more complicated and less guilty relationship to their body beginning with eating. I mean not only the way they the pleasure that they take an eating. The american notion that food is medicine for example is totally repulsive to to the french and yet increasingly. I mean in america. I mean that's all you hear. I mean people eat as a function of what they think is good for them and nobody in france would eat strictly as a function of what good for i think really the heart of it was for me when i came here in. Nineteen fifty eight for the first time. Was they always the simple marketplace right in the heart of cowers sort of not far from where we are now remember. I used to go there and not every night but frequently and then around talking morning you would kind of go out on the streets in our which was a mark price and they used to bring all the flu.

"A very interesting case the as you say, the government sued him over and over again and Coda, kind of never stopped being a monopoly until it was undone by technological change there's a significant school of thought that all of those actions against Kodak weren't really that effective and it's a poster child for those who think that antitrust itself is kind of. Guided. It's only one of many companies that fall into that category and it definitely I. Mean I'm a believer antitrust I'd like to see the government bring this law back to life but that case the cases against Kodak and the cases against any number of other big. American. Firms definitely exposed some serious problems in having competition policy at all another Tech Company these days has gone well beyond tech. It's Amazon. It's more a platform now and a a merchant of everything. It's also been the subject of many antitrust probes here and in the European Union. The e alleges Amazon has stifled competition by using data collected from third party merchants who sell on its platform to boost its own product offerings. What is the case against Amazon and is it going? Excellent question in Amazon is a very interesting company because it illustrates I think one of the enduring in tensions of competition policy and one of the things that makes it very difficult to have an effective competition policy. The tension is that on one hand, it seems like the company has done a lot of good for society. It seems that way at least many people. In. It seems moreover that it has gotten big or has succeeded only by doing the things that companies are supposed to do, which is provide a better product or sell it more cheaply. Amazon at least to some degree has certainly done that it's It's given products and services to people at at low prices and with good service and It has succeeded accordingly. The problem is Amazon is also a very aggressive company I. Don't think there's meaningful doubt at this point that it's engaged in quite a lot of very sharp elbowed conduct and I humbly think the case seems plenty strong that Amazon may have violated the mattress laws in getting as big as it did. What the case going to be in the United States the antitrust case we'll be monopolisation case I think I mean Amazon did anything illegal it has done what we describe as engaged in anticompetitive unilateral action or monopolization meaning that it hasn't engaged in agreements with its competitors acted unilaterally, but it's done it with monopoly power and it has done it through anti-competitive mean. So it has worked to exclude competitors. So if there's a case against Amazon I think government is going to say. There was unilateral action here that allowed onto us its market position to exclude competitors that means the government is going to have to prove a couple of things. The government will have to show that Amazon. First of all has some very large market share in some relevant arket once you get a big market share and enrollment market if it's big enough to demonstrate what we describe as. Monopoly power. Then there are a number of things that you can't do. You can't engage in unilateral actions in number specific ways that other firms are permitted to do firms without monopoly power. So the government's I going to have to show a monopoly position in some relevant market in then it's going to have to show that Amazon engaged in some of these prohibited actions when taken by monopolist. Is a nice little example that you described and There's a lot of evidence of an Amazon appears to be doing various things to compete unfairly with its own sellers, its own suppliers on its it's platform. As you say, one persistent allegation is that Amazon watches the sellers third party sellers on its marketplace, and it waits to see which products become successful in Amazon Russia's Outta a store band product to compete with it and uses the whatever Dad's collected to its advantage I. Humbly personally think that we Amazon does those things not so much because it wants to kill off those competitors, but because it wants to get some leverage over them to force. THEM TO SORTA, pony up and pay various fees and marketing by marketing services and so on. The dams on provides I mean it's a pretty good business model if you own the store and you can force everybody who wants to sell through your store to pay you essentially a bribe to stock their products on your shelves it's kind of a protection racket and I think there's probably a pretty good case. Amazon's been involved in that and a good case that it ought to be illegal into the anti trust laws well, just wanted to to continue this discussion of the tension in antitrust law maybe outside the scope of Amazon, I'll play devil's advocate for a moment. Certainly Rockefeller and as for that matter was notorious not just for a ruthless tactics but but a devotion to efficiency his empire was built on scale but that's scale was accomplished namely by undercutting competitors forcing them to compete on price and taking losses. So why aren't low prices good for consumers isn't an erratic -ation of inefficiency good for the market ultimately in aren't these tactics. The same that would be themselves celebrated later by the vanguard corporate strategists with concepts like the experience curve and growth share matrix things that pushed most companies to better profits and higher efficiencies. Yeah. Absolutely. That is emphatically the fundamental tension. My basic answer is we ought to try to deal with the problems that it causes by finding the right medicine or by addressing the right illness. A lot of agitation. These days is based on the idea that competition itself as the culprit like unbridled capitalism is is the culprit and you know when you use the the business guru speak like growth distribution matrix or whatever it is that you mentioned I mean it makes people stomach turn and mine too in. It makes it seem like wild competition really is gross. It's just a way for the rich to get. Richer and therefore the prescriptions that a lot of people come up with. So for example, you know the left wing of the American Democratic Party. Right now I think would like to do various things to address real problems by limiting competition itself by protecting some firms from the furthest reaches of Competitive Vigor. My sense is I certainly understand that, but it probably isn't the right medicine and it's not the right disease. I think that we ought to let competition do what it does and kind of get out of the way, and that means figuring out how to produce industry products and do innovation words needed. But then fix the problems that it causes the bad side effects. With policies that would actually work instead of just make things worse or have no effect at all in that means having progressive fiscal policy and social welfare programs Chris.

Those boats and boats like them to escape to Yemen. Yes I've lost three very good friends. On one of his friends had his child and Losing your vote with his wife. He knew how to swim but he could not swim. Because his John Lewis you know he was trying to to save his jail and his wife and then they were caught up in the sea shocks. There were not the only ones who died there. Seventy five other Somalis were killed in that journey on. That has changed nothing about our decision. That dozen Skara Salah at all we know is there ever times op de point to take one of those boats but he had trouble getting the money together and eventually his mom talked him out of it so instead he escaped across the border to Kenya Smith. Kenya next to each other Abdi moved to Nairobi. Enrolled in a university tried twice for a student. Visa or America was denied both times if he hadn't gotten lucky that day in the cybercafe cafe he said he would have been looking again getting on a boat. Yeah if I had not won this lottery.

Most of my brain was taken up with the slow motion car crash of the end of my marriage. But every so often I check in on Omar On the story that once upon a time I had worked so hard to get and then one day after the separation from my wife was final. I decided that what I needed to do to get my life back on. on-track was to get the story back. Even if I only had to vegas idea what I meant by that so I sent a message to Omar. I told him about my separation. I told him to economy can hear you. My way of dealing with Omar had always been to open up to him and hope that it would make him be open with me but on that call call my dials. Were all cranked. Way Too high did so I'm like I'm still married but I think I'm getting divorced. Told Omar things things. I hadn't told a lot of my closest friends. It's fucked up. It's terrible I mean that's why I've been distracted. These guys like three months because it's just been like all I can think about. But Omar told me not to worry that I was a catch. Were plenty of fish in the sea. Six years I had my whole life. Adamy no okay. No kids I did ask. Some of the questions journalist was supposed to ask but on that call. I just didn't care about al-shabaab is relationship to al Qaeda. Data the fuck are you GonNa do man like I mean you've got this five million dollar bounty on your head. Omar thought about are you just gonNa live life as normal or do you think the end is in sight soon. I just wanted to know if he thought he was safe. You're saying you're not. You're not concerned or scared right now. For more than a year Omar's mother. Deborah had been calling me once a week or so at first to see if there was any news about Omar then sometimes times just to check in on me. She called me again a week after that. Call with Omar. She asked if I'd been on twitter if I knew what had happened. I got off the phone and open my laptop on Omar's twitter account.

"Was a three month period period. The beginning of two thousand thirteen when I didn't communicate with Omar at all no phone calls no emails or direct messages. While part of me was relieved not to have the responsibility for tracking Omar's rollercoaster story anymore. Another part of me was frankly jealous that this source sites spent months cultivating was now just out there in the open. Ready to talk to whoever bothered to send him a tweet and so you would see a lot of journalists. I thought sort of fall in love with Omar on the twitter conversations. Forget like oh he did confess to killing people will they would forget that part because you see the person as somebody you know now and I thought that was an interesting dynamic to watch even when they're not being recruited but they're being sucked in a little bit to the fact that he is normal in a lot of senses on top of that one says to anyone who was paying attention whose hard to miss. How Rough Omar's life had gotten? He especially noticed it in the photos are posted. You could tell he was very hungry. He was putting on a good masquerade publicly. But I knew if you're in the woods of inner Somalia trying to survive your hunting you're surviving off the land. It's insanely hot like you're suffering. Clint Watts hamburger had started watching Omar and then going back and forth with him for reasons that were in a lot of ways pretty different from mine but but in the end they ended up in a similar place. I've always been one to think about terrorists as being human. They're people and there's one thing to understand that and integrate that into your work and it's another thing to sort of have that experience of talking somebody day in and day out because what happened was he just became part of my daily life from the people. I talk to every day and it was weird because we weren't friends who we had real obstacles between us and At the same time there there was this weird. I don't know I guess Report for you know for a while. This is my way to get through my day and I think for Omar a lot of ways as twitter was his way to get through his day when he was like super isolated and we're we're on totally different parallels but it is interesting like how many times I'll be like oh man I I think the sky is suffering too and he's just in his own way suffering. I did try encourage him to to come in. I try to encourage them to give himself up and and try and make some kind of deal. I couldn't guarantee anything. I don't have those kinds of contacts in the government but I had enough context that you know I was like look. If you want to try and surrendering get out of this alive I can put you in touch with somebody. You're probably not going to get out of this. You Know Scott Free. You're not gonNA like you. You go go live freely in the United States somewhere else to do some jail time but you'll be alive in your family will be alive and you'd be able to see them some day and you know he just wasn't he will do it. He was too committed to to what he was doing. Even when it was clearly a lost cause he said I appreciate the compassion. But I'm not I'm not interested..

"There's a story that Omar's father Shafique told me about Omar's a young man. Omar had just turned twenty. He and Shafii. You could been locked in a long-running argument about how dogmatic Omar had become about Islam. Since his conversion as a way to mend fences they agreed to travel together to Syria to visit relatives loves. It didn't work out the way we hoped. We were in a resort area on the Mediterranean with friends and families. There you and somehow he broke loose from us and he went to Internet cafe. He's just had to be Uh on the Internet Omar had become obsessed with fundamentalist Islamic forums online forums that the security services in Syria kept a close eye on so apparently drew through the attention of the secret. Police is true they stopped them and then they'll don't put him in jail. She feek managed to smooth things things over but he knew that Omar wasn't content to keep his head down. Omar talked openly about his plan to move on from Syria to Yemen. Despite the fact that there are the beginnings of a civil war there a new at the time it was wasn't glazed to be I mean there was chaos Yemen always in chaos. Omar said he wanted to go study study there but his dad hated the idea of how to stop him. So I took the passport and hid. Shafique lied Omar told him the secret police had taken it. It was defiant. He he was. Why what would I do WanNa doing that for Shafique? The story is about Omar's Americanise. She could threaten his son with the most frightening thing. He knew. off the Syrian secret police and Omar didn't care. He wants to challenge the secret police in Syria. Can you get any more provocative than this. It's the sense of superiority instilled in every American so carelessness and feeling like we. You can do whatever you want to me though the stories actually about Shafique about this desperate step he took when he realized how far his son was willing to go for what he believed in about. How powerless Shafique was change? Mars mind it was a feeling Omar wooden site and a lot of people. I'm Christoph Puzzle and this is America haughty episodes six Abu Am American when Omar called me while I was at the Christmas party the one where I was surrounded by former CIA and State Department officials officials. It turned out. He wanted to alert me to yet. One more turn things had taken in his feud with Al Shabaab. I got off the phone with him before he gave me any details and I didn't answer any any of his calls after that so I learned about what was happening the same way. The rest of the world did on twitter on its official account. al-shabaab tweeted out a statement about Omar. The Video Omar had posted the one where he called on the leaders of al Qaeda intervening al-shabaab. That was the last Straw. al-shabaab publicly disavowed Omar saying he didn't represent the group and that is complaints quote stemmed purely from a narcissistic pursuit of fame for the next three months. A bizarre and very public fight played laid out online and Omar's audience expanded way beyond me and started to include some very different folks people like former. FBI Agent Clint Watts. My was doing in social media tracking Mostly terrorists because I was Kinda just bored. Watts was living in Boston with his wife and young daughter and working as a consultant to keep one foot in the counter-terrorism world. He started a blog and it gave me away when I had to work a job that I didn't want to be working in a town that I didn't want to be in and so the blog was my outlet to like still be in my field and somewhat relevant in early January. What saw a new tweet? From Mars Account Abu am-american Shabaab make official announcement in front of 'em Ricky. Drop your weapon before fifteen days or be killed. It's on after after that Omar went nuts. It was mind boggling for me to watch the same Omar who had insisted on only communicating with me under encryption was now putting all of Al Shabaab dirty laundry up on twitter over the course of two days. He posted fifty three separate times. He compared the leaders to Nazis. Omar publicly accused Abdi Ghedini the leader of Al Shabaab of being responsible for a series of assassinations of fighters. WHO deposed him? Clint Watts could hardly believe it. Amami reveal the things that were critical. One that go. Donnie was having a coup and was bringing together all the power under him by creating a formal mole relationship with al Qaeda central and to that Donna was achieving his goal by eliminating anyone who might have served as an intermediary between him and Al Qaeda all the old al-Qaeda hands inside Somalia were being killed off. He'll edges by the emir of Shabaab. That is by Gadani a friend of Watts. What's another terrorism analyst named Jam? Burger was also following Omar. He says what was interesting. Wasn't just what Omar was saying but the response it got there were a bunch of people from al-shabaab we're getting on in tweeting. Things like you know the hyenas are going to be eating your bones. Your there's a Lotta Hyenas in there for some reason each time. A new account tweeted it. Omar Tacoma liar wire or trader or dead man. Burger could Adam to his list of potential. Al Shabaab members for Burger was a gold mine most of the activity jihad a sexy align had taken place place in these closed. Message Board forums where you had to have a password to get in and somebody had devout for you before he could get a password. This was a huge game changer. Just really put but these guys out in front of Analysts in a way that was you know the Golden Age of what we call open source intelligence you know we were just able to create incredible trails to document their activity and this included Omar was boom boom boom boom boom so key in on those conversations and watch everything that was being said. Nobody had ever seen anything like this before. We're seeing this civil war in al-shabaab that was suddenly playing out in real time on our screens for Watson Burger it. It wasn't just that they got to learn the inside scoop on terrorist organization. It was that it was Al Shabaab former poster boy. Who's the one telling people how bad things had gotten? We were happy to have that information nation. Be Out there because it highlighted the dangers of joining these organizations people don't want to join a terrorist group of the terrorist. Group is going to turn on him and kill him so I just wanted him to keep talking the highlight of the you know. They're not always what they seem that the you know you go and be part of something great and then they decide. They're sick of you and they're going to kill you now as a pretty. Hey good message. For Counterterrorism Omar appeared to thrive with a new attention. He was receiving on twitter. He finally had the platform for Ford's voice to be heard he had a vision of himself as being somebody who was special thin he really saw himself as someone. Who could? We play a really important role in in both al-shabaab specifically and in the jihadist movement generally and occasionally he would try and be like a profit Ryan he would post his Arabic thing hanging manifestos and he and I come on man like you're not really the next bin Laden was just calm down right. He sort of thought of himself is that he was aspiring to be more like Anwar Lackey. WHO's in American cleric? Who became the most miserable voice of al-Qaeda? Really one of their chief ideologues logs in the English language I think that's what he wanted for himself. He wanted to be an ideologue. He wanted to be an inspirational figure that suited his his narcissistic tendencies. It didn't take long for her to become aware that it wasn't just other jihadists. who were following him on twitter and he was more than happy to engage with them? Even even folks like Burger. We were all pretty hesitant about giving him a lot of oxygen. We didn't want him to you. Know become famous thanks to his interactions actions with us and so I kept trying to push him into more private conversations because I wanted to hear what he had say. I just didn't want to make a big show of it. Watts took a more direct. Direct approach. Intentionally baiting are on his blog. I remember I would set up my laptop and I feed my daughter Oatmeal and then I see he is. I like tweet in the morning and then and I would post and shoot it out because I knew I had his attention and he would ping right back usually within ten minutes always wanting to correct you about something that you had wrong which he didn't realize I would deliberately put things wrong in there so that he would respond back to me and then I would you know. Try to keep the dialogue going with that when other analysts questioned whether the twitter account don't really belong to Omar. Watts got to help improve that it did people like you're an idiot. That's not him and so I've deliberately wrote a blog post. I was like maybe we don't need to listen any of this because it could just be some kid like in his basement or something to that effect. I was like so this is a waste of time. I knew that would drive crazy and so that was the next day. He said Something like Clint Watts. No one's providing you the information and then he posted the picture and it's January eleven twenty thirteen in the photo. Omar stood next to three. Other foreign fighters here's squinting at the Sun Holding Handwritten sign with today's date. And then that's when everybody's like no shit. That is Omar Hamami right lake. He was validating as identity in some reason was so important. Fortnum to say like this is me this is me. Romar was very focused on trying to protect his operational security but he it wasn't really that good at it so he dropped a lot of breadcrumbs. Sometimes Watson Burger would even work together to trick Omar and to give him clues we would send him links to click on the only I click on them and we'd get his Ip address and we get a little bit of information there he would make what I thought were dumb stakes about location. You know at times he would be like. I'm on a car and we got to have ice today and I was like we just told everybody you're within a thirty minute ride of an ice machine. How many of those do you think there aren't so they're smaller right? He tweet tweet about there had been caught in a rainstorm and so we went to the maps and looked at Somalia. Because it's you know. His big chance of smalley. Were not necessarily raining slowly but surely we developed a pretty good map of of his activities. Omar's carelessness opened up to real risk in March of two thousand thirteen eighteen. Three months and Omar's tirade on twitter. The US government announced that it would offer five million dollars for any information leading to his capture. matchbooks and posters posters were distributed with Omar's picture and information and Somali about how to collect the reward around that time Omar posted a picture of his own on twitter twitter. It's a family portrait of Omar kneeling on a blanket. Next to one of his wives and one of his daughters both covered in full burqas so that only their eyes are showing behind them. The Somali Bush and a small dome tent covered in tarps. Omar smiles for the camera. That is an American family picnic picture like we go for picnic. Got The blanket out and we take a picture to watts. The picture was proof of the fault. Line that ran right down the middle of Omar's identity then like wow he to the end was trying to live in two worlds right. He was trying to live in this world where he was this kid in Alabama. And he's taking this picture as if he's at a picnic right and at the same point he's got the AK47 like he's you know the next bin Laden and he's out in the hinterlands of Somalia and just was remarkable to me like the point he navigated himself into right. He's on the hunt from all directions. Ray He really out.
