David Rice Atchison: President For A Day?
"Rice was a democratic senator from the state of missouri. He served in the senate for twelve years from eighteen. Forty three to eighteen fifty five. He had a reputation for being extremely pro. Slavery he owned. Slaves supported all of the slave state issues in the run up to the civil war and when the war finally commenced he served in the confederate army as a brigadier general commanding missouri troops. So he's not the finest of people to sit in the upper chamber of congress. Quite frankly if it wasn't for the events that i'll be discussing this episode david. Rice atchison would probably be mostly forgotten to history i. I came across his name years ago and children's book of fun facts which said that he was the president of the united states for one day. This fact has been repeated on and off for over one hundred and fifty years in fact the words president of the united states for one day are on his tombstone in missouri as sort of a testament to his greatest achievement. So is this true. Was david rice. Atchison really the president of the united states for a single day to answer the question. We need to understand exactly what happened in the election of eighteen. Forty eight week party. Candidate zachary taylor comfortably. Defeated democrat lewis. Cass and free soil candidate. Martin van buren incoming president. James polka made a pledge to seek a single term in office and he honored that pledge by not. Running taylor was a career military man who had never expressed any political opinions prior to the election. And in fact he had never voted. He had a great deal of success as a general during the mexican american war which led to his popularity in calls for him to run for president. He wasn't fact recruited by both the whigs and the democrats. The two major political parties at the time to seek office prior to the passage of the twentieth amendment to the constitution the president and all members of congress would take office at noon on march fourth. This lengthy lame duck period made more sense when everyone had to travel by horseback. And that's why was eventually changed. Nonetheless march fourth was the date everyone took office in eighteen forty nine march fourth landed on a sunday. Zachary taylor being a devout man. Didn't want to have his inauguration ceremony. Take place on the sabbath so he postponed one day until monday. March fifth is vice. President millard fillmore also delayed his oath of office until march fifth according to the law at the time which was the presidential succession act of seventeen ninety to the next person in line to the presidency after the vice president was the president pro. Temporary of the united states senate. The vice president is technically the president of the senate. The president pro temporary is the person who presides over the senate when the vice president is not present. The president temporary was david rice. Atchison at the time the position was actually a competitive election today. The president pro temporary is just the senior ranking member of the majority party in the senate. So the argument is that because neither zachary taylor nor millard fillmore didn't take the oath of office on march fourth and waited until march fifth that they weren't president from noon on march fourth until noon on march fifth. That means that the next in line would have been the president pro. Temporary of the senate david rice. So is this true and does this argument. Hold water. The answer is pretty clear in the answer is no and there are a whole bunch of reasons. Why this is the case. I while the constitution does stipulate that the president and the vice president must take the oath of office it only says quote before he enters upon the execution of his office unquote. This is legal hair-splitting but it means before president can do anything presidential e- sign a law. Appoint officials signed a treaty etc. They must i take the oath of office however they can still be the president before taking the oath to illustrate the point. President kennedy was shot at twelve thirty pm on november. Twenty second nineteen sixty three. He was declared dead at one thirty three. Pm and lyndon johnson took the oath of office on air force one at two thirty eight pm. The moment president kennedy was dead. Or at least claire dead. Lyndon johnson became the president in the same way that someone becomes a king the moment the old king dead even if they haven't been coronated. The oath of office is just a way to legally unlock the powers of the presidency after becoming president. As i said this is legal hair-splitting and for all practical purposes it doesn't really matter but for the twenty four hour period before the oath of office zachary. Taylor was the president. If there was an emergency you could have quickly taken the oath of office in private and without a public ceremony and dealt with the crisis as president. The second argument as to why atkinson was never president is that he never took the oath of office. Either if taylor is in president. Because he didn't take the oath of office than atkinson also can't be president by the same logic. The third argument is that he officially wasn't the president pro. Tempore e of the senate. He was the president pro temporary during the previous session of congress. His term expired on march fourth at noon. Just like the presidential term. Did he needed to be reelected again. On march fifth which he was moreover. This wasn't the first time that this had happened in eighteen. Twenty one james monroe delay taking the oath by a day for the exact same reason yet known assumes that someone else was president for a day at johnson himself never claimed to be president at the time. No one seriously thought he was the president. And there's nothing in the congressional record to indicate that he was there are no constitutional scholars presidential historians or even atkinson's owned biographer. Who thinks that he was actually president at best. If you applied a very strict rule to the taking of the oath to become president then you could maybe say that there was a one day interregnum where there was no president but it doesn't follow that atkinson was president.

Who killed Mohsen Fakhrizadeh?
"We start with breaking news. And iran's defense ministry has confirmed that one of the country's top nuclear scientists has been assassinated two diff- of muslim fucker. Saudi is very much proving to be one of those stories in which people will see whatever confirmations of their own prejudices and suspicions they wished to it might reasonably be argued that this description applies in the online epoch in particular to pretty much every story but it is especially the case with stories set in the middle east and which may would depending wh one prefers to believe may not involve israel. So it's best to start with what we know for certain. We know that molson fucker. Zodda was a renowned nuclear physicist a senior engineering of iran's nuclear program and a brigadier general in iran's islamic revolution regard core. He is believed to have been deleted of what was known as project amid the program. Iran established in the late nineteen eighty s to explore the prospects of iranian nuclear weapon and closed in two thousand three according to the international atomic energy agency. We know that he was killed. Last friday near absorbed a small town seventy kilometers east of tehran. And that he was buried with full state on. Who's on sunday law. Main hobby lobby. No optic not that big van owen ruling to the questions of precisely how he was killed by whom there is a bewildering smorgasbord of answers. While it seems clear enough that Was shot dead as the car in which he was. Travelling was the object of an ambush. There are conflicting reports of this assassination being conducted by a posse of live operators. Some of whom may or may not have died at the scene and or by some species of remote controlled weapon monotony iran bit who we bid and me. The enemies of iran have to know that the iranian nation and the country's officials a brave and intrepid enough to respond to this criminal action. As on a has dan in dommage in our yet caught on era by-pass off pigs around as to who might have done it. Iranian officialdom and iranian media have been quick to blame either israel or the mujahedeen e. Cock a curious cultish iranian rebel group which has been a persistent irritant to the islamic republic. And who currently appear to be based between iraq. France and albania. The has also been an amount of copy pasted umbrage directed at the united states or as president hassan rohani of iran prefers to address it the global arrogance on record. Israeli sources have feigned bafflement though the new york times has quoted an unnamed senior. Israeli official is suggesting that the world should thank israel. Four reside is demise. The mujahideen have been reticent. As of this broadcast the iran has yet to present any concrete evidence of their assertions. And if and when they do it will likely be impossible for any independent observers to verify them and iran does reflexively blame israel for pretty much anything it is only a couple of years since former head of iran's military major general signed fear is a body accused of running a network of spy lizards. But it's not like there isn't something of a circumstantial case to answer this year. Several sites in iran which might or might not have been related to iran's nuclear program was struck by explosions which did not appear coincidental and at least four other iranian. Nuclear scientists have met violent ends since two thousand ten to killed by car bombs one by a motorcycle. Bomb one shot dead. In most instances iran blamed israel and israel denied involvement while also making it as clear as it could be regarded even the faintest prospect of a nuclear armed iran as intolerable almost ziff inviting tehran to take the hint and a is at least arguable. Most infact saudis college was marked in two thousand eighteen when israeli intelligence highsted from a warehouse in tehran thousands of files pertaining to iran's nuclear program when israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu announced his feet. He mentioned zadeh by name. A key. part of the plan was to form new organizations to continue the work. This is how dr moosa farkas the of project about put remember that name a day so along with the questions of who and how there is another why in particular wine now whoever killed most fuck resolve will have known that iran would feel obliged to retaliate or at least threatened to retaliate. And that this would make any kind of diplomacy with tehran difficult. Whoever killed muslims will also have understood that a window to such engagement might have been about to open interior. Vashon sean medicare dishman salvage assassination shows. The enemies are experiencing anxious weeks feeling. That the pressure's fading away. And the world circumstances a change a heart. The camby share shadow. It's johnny you're gonna with the swearing in of a new american president who has sounded keen on returning the us to the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal with iran out of which the current president flounced of the possible consequences.

Compromise with iran will be less likely someone somewhere will be considering this a win win

The Bonus Army
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit crumb today the mystery of the Bonus Army July twenty eighth nineteen thirty two will mark the eighth anniversary of one of the most controversial protests in US history and yet it remains virtually unknown to most Americans. On, that day nineteen, thirty, two, five, hundred, US army infantrymen loaded rifles, fixed bayonets, gas grenades containing of vomited ingredient two, hundred cavalry, a machine gun squadron eight, hundred police and six M One, nine, thousand, nine, hundred seventeen army tanks prepared to attack seventeen hundred unarmed men plus thousands of their wives and children moments before the Assault General Douglas Smith Garth in charge of the operation turned. To police officers standing next to him and said, I will break the back of the enemy. The attack was ordered by President Herbert Hoover and commanded by General Macarthur Dwight D Eisenhower was MacArthur's aide and Major. General George. S, Patton led the tank unit after donning gas masks the tossed hundreds of tear-gas grenades into the encampment which started raging fires and the assault drove all but the. Occupants of the area in Kampman was then burned to the ground. This wasn't Cuba the Philippines or the Mexican border. But in Washington DC The camp nicknamed Hoover Ville occupied by World War One veterans who were living in tents and shanties across the country and they're also in their encampment in DC with crumbling buildings all around them along Pennsylvania Avenue near the capital if your education was anything like mine, there wasn't any mention of this event. In history class four, million vets had returned from the war. This is World War One was the war to end all wars and found that others had taken their jobs that are considerably higher wage than though one dollar per day soldiers pay an expected more help from the government in nineteen twenty four Congress promised World War One veterans a bonus payment. I'll dollar twenty five for each day of overseas service and a dollar for every day of. Home Service there would be a limit of six hundred, twenty five dollars for overseas service and five hundred for Home Service but the catch twenty two was that it could not be redeemed until nineteen forty five cash quickly dubbed at the tombstone bonus because many of them would be dead before collecting with the Great Depression deepening demands for making an immediate payment we're escalating finally bill was passed, but President Hoover vetoed it in response some three hundred. Veterans led by Ex Sergeant Walter waters boarded a freight train in Portland Oregon in early May nineteen, thirty, two and headed. For Washington DC. Soon, others began their pilgrimage the cat to the capital from across the country and dilapidated buses overcrowded pickup trucks by walking hitch-hiking the vets and their families were in desperate financial shape with overdue bills to pay hunger affections hanging over their heads. They demanded immediate payment of the bonus soon, known as a bonus. Between Seventeen Thousand and twenty five thousand trekkers began arriving on May twenty third nineteen, thirty, two, assuming their demands wouldn't be met anytime soon, they proceeded to set up a long-term presence in order fashion they mapped out streets named for states, Setup Library and post office, a barber shop and a military type sanitation approach appointed MP's to keep order publish their own cap newspaper and even organized evening. Vaudeville shows. Some ten thousand other vets occupied partially demolished government buildings that surrounded the main camp between the capital and the White House. Extremely Patriotic. That's insisted on American flag fly over every tent and Shanti further as Roy. Wilkins than a young reporter with a press pass road. There was only one absentee in the Cap James Crowe get it Jim Crow. The entire massive undertaking was one in which blacks applied shared everything. Together, during world, War One, the military was still segregated as was Anacostia Park when the marchers arrived the vets who had fought a war together deliberately decided to live side by side and set up in the black section of the park. This fact alone may have led some people to fear the movement General Macarthur's most trusted subordinate Brigadier General. George Van Horn Moseley portrayed black and white veterans living together. As proof that Negroes Jewish communist were planning a revolution in truth radicals and Communists were dismissed by the veterans and were never serious element in the movement. The veterans those were still alive didn't receive their bonuses until nineteen, forty five keep in mind that many. World War One vets had died by then and families were not eligible for the bonus. The ravages of the Great Depression continued until World War Two. Today. We have a confluence of factors including the federal government's failure to protect US citizens for the Cobra virus and pandemic machine fiscal austerity in the face of another great depression a newly transparent institutional racism that has provided an unparalleled opportunity to replicate the bonus army's action in the nation's capital this time on an unprecedented scale depth and breadth of

Ely Parker The Commissioner of Indian Affairs
"Hello and welcome to era KOI history and legends. I'm Andrew. And I am Caleb, and welcome back to our third installment on Ellie Parker. In May of eighteen, sixty, five, ely parker returned to Washington. DC, and he and grant met with the president again. President Johnson this time Parker was still very angry about the death of Lincoln and is said to have said at a military parade. He white men are Christians, and you may forgive murder. The I'm of a race never forgives the murder of a friend which I find this quote kind of interesting because he was a Christian. He his father was a preacher, and he was a member of a of an Anglican church later in his life. So that I think it's the point is getting across that he really harbored some bitterness towards the the confederates. If you remember from our. Our last episode couple of weeks before this when Abraham Lincoln is talking to him on how he wants to help his people think Parker was really excited to have a president that actually cared about the Indians, and I think he believed honesty when he said that this must have been a you know on top of him considering Abraham Lincoln a friend, but also all of a sudden. His plans for the future for his people have just been crushed with the death of Abraham Lincoln, and we don't know what would have been head Lincoln been able to finish his second term. Lincoln definitely had some very. Questionable tactics dealing with a Western tribes during the civil war. He or some people to do some some bad stuff that being said I think that Lincoln really did have an appreciation for the the Iroquois nations, and really did want to to help them in the following months Parker remained at grant side, he helped shield him from the the masses for a word. We would use today. The Paparazzi the general was the hero of the war. He's the one that got lead to surrender. Everywhere. He went. People mobbed him. They literally had to beat people away when grant was trying to get some sleep on a train. People were breaking windows. Just try to get in and shake his hand. They said the grants hand was. Crippled because so many people wanted to shake in talk to them as they toured the North Grant, and his family came to Niagara Falls to rest and recuperate and Parker said I'll take your kids, and which is always great when somebody offers to do that, he just takes the kids and take some to the tunnel under reservation for some days to stay at his sister's house. In the fall of that year he was appointed to a commission to serve on a board to help with negotiating with a dozen or so native American nations that adjoined the confederates. We even have a chance to talk about this, but there were all these indigenous nations in the south. Many of them head slaves as well, and they were really sympathetic to the southern 'cause they were intertwined. and politically so here's a little history tidbit fact for Caleb. Do you know who the last general to surrender in the confederacy was? No idea neither did I, but I put it in the notes so I would remember. He was a Cherokee brigadier general named stand. Wadey must be the southward a little more lenient with their commissions. Yeah really, but he he commanded hundreds of troops and lead people around on a wild goose chase, refusing to surrender, even after the confederacy had surrendered, but like this is June twenty third. This is a full two or three months after a everything has wound down, it also kind of sets the stage for you know because we all know about like the the Indian wars in. In the eighteen eighties and stuff like that in the old western kind of see how a Lotta that this conflict never really ended this Cherokee general with America like eventually make some sort of peace, but you can tell it. It's GONNA be a shallow peace, and that will be trouble for the next several decades in eighteen, sixty, six one of grant's top officers colonel, bowers. was killed tragically by train, and why it's so tragic is he was a close friend of Parker in grand. You know he's one of the general. Staff and they were all on a train and grant got on the train and realized he left something back at the hotel. Something completely, not important handkerchief a book, a letter from his mom something like that. and. He just said Oh darn. I accidentally left that back there. Oh well. And bowers without saying anything to grant slipped away, and he was gonNA. Run back and grab it. Is. He was trying to be a good a good friend and a good underlying to the general in doing so he ended up. If you can picture, all these train tracks with all the trains going every which way he got trapped in between trains going different directions than he was killed crushed. So grant talks to this man a couple of minutes before, and then you know, he slips away. Grant never told him to go back and get it, and then people say a man was killed on tracks. He says Oh. That's terrible, and then it comes in that. It was his friend. It had fought with him through the whole civil war, and he was dead, just like that grant was so depressed that he told Parker that he was not going to be able to attend the funeral. Lots of people say things like that, and then the funeral date comes and guess who is there. A Grant Parker and all the staff were there for Colonel Bowers and his family

the son of the lost soldier I could not believe I actually cannot believe senator produ the Nancy Pelosi tore up a speech that honor to Tuskegee airmen and all those other heroes well it just shows their their don't care about the future American I want power and we see it and everything this purely partisan political process I just ran in this impeachment process speech tons about that they don't want the truth they just want power and Schumer talk about it all the time you talk about on your show I mean what they want to do with America is taken and regressed back to what has been proven to fail around the world of the last century really I got to play for you a few quotes about what was said last night this is Chris Matthews on MSNBC Democrat cut forty three Chris Matthews I think he wore I came from the like the speech tonight I think regular people well not with us see the Smalls the corny this still see it but don't like it because it's all good stuff whatever purpose it had and I look at something about I watched closely because I really respect like most Mister I was very the way she held me to win the stand when to apply it was almost a normal almost entirely the tributes to people to individual people she always felt that was the right thing to do especially the one quite out I'm right there one why don't this is van Jones on CNN another hard left person cut number forty four and and the thing about it is and I think that we we got to wake up folks do the whole bubble thing that goes on with the will he said **** nations there for all but you will get him forever that ain't necessarily so and I think what you're gonna see him do is say I you like my rhetoric the look at my results look at my record to black people now this is Jake tapper on CNN cut forty five okay we've never really seen a scholarship given which is what the president did with the with the young girl from Philadelphia we've seen the type of thing where a war hero like the Tuskegee airmen brigadier general McGee we seen that honored and it was a lovely moment to have a one hundred year old does he here's Chris Cuomo on CNN four wheeling poignant moments that came I don't know if you saw them but you should go online and look and I'm gonna talk to you about it more later on the president in that speech tonight celebrated with this country is about from one set of moments are finally Claire McCaskill on your former colleague senator produ on MSNBC cut number fifty of course the flow state tearing up the street I can argue that that maybe wasn't the best idea it you know I think America once everyone to get along and get things done but what you know when I can play a montage of left left left left left and they're all applauding the president you know we had a home run senator produ I'm shocked I mean I really am but what he did was historic I say it again I mean he did mention impeachment once he rose above that he showed great disappoint he showed vision for America but here's the difference American people we built America because everybody out there in the real world view like you and others know how to get results the political partisanship here is not focused on results and president trump is trying to break through that that's why I think he's going to do extremely well this fall at Lana is the home of some great talk radio Neal Bortz had many disagreements over the years but he's a friend we visited with President Bush in the oval one time is phone went off one of the funniest moments I've ever seen a withering look from the president at Neil Sean Hannity had a lot of great years in Atlanta you know Rush Limbaugh personally I say he built the mall in which the rest of us live in I hope you stood in a plot in one rush got that last night I couldn't see last night but it was moving it was emotional every family in America that struggles with cancer saluted him what did you think of that moment well I had dinner with him a few weeks ago in Florida and I was in what would this be to that was a total surprise last night to me I think that homeowners a great American hero he did go out first and blaze a trail to tell the truth and that's what you and many others are doing now and that's what's gonna win today just look at the numbers of conservative talk radio out there and their numbers are going up in the liberal left numbers are going down so I mean I think the middle part of America is leading and showing how California New York Illinois have totally failed their governance and now they want to export that to the federal government I think most people in America see what trump is doing and they certainly recognizes result this present you said on the top he's done more for the Arab American community and in America any other president since Lincoln I think Britt slough editor of the National Review discuss the state of the union while on Chicago's morning answer with Salem stand problem Amy Jacobson that will settle somewhere then people are safe and she's the woman of the hour and she just couldn't find any truth than from say the union address that's why if you threw a tantrum yeah well the whole thing about Nancy Pelosi she's popular supposedly this calm cool calculating presence to his genius is getting under trump skin and she showed her deep irritation last night does incredibly test headed yesterday I think trump said of shook her hand at the beginning I like grace notes but they're ripping up the the speech yeah he should have known this moment was gonna come when she started to impeach shop in the first place that eventually he'd be acquitted or be near quit all and he'd be this majestic setting and she'd have to sit by back there like a prop and behave herself and she and she couldn't handle it they were routine they were rooting against America I mean when they talked about alone unemployment numbers for African Americans and minorities why not stand up and clap for that because they they can't abide anything this president says even when it's things that normally everyone would welcome and that's one thing I think it's it's really notable about the speech the ratio of outrage it caused among the opposition you know on Twitter on cable TV and in the hall and the way most people receive it I think it's a vast you know because I'm sitting there is conservative once the limit limit government event basketball on those sort of things there's almost nothing for me is a very center of speech right planting trees going to Mars you know the research to support extremely premature babies and that was a really moving moment I'm among many from the gallery and so most people that the second strike in this on reasonable as striking as entirely reasonable or welcome so they can deal why did the speaker house can happen rip up the speech this is what we have one listener described trump this way after the St unit rasta Nancy pollicis little snack and I thought this was pretty good he he's like human so the impact the fall he he brings out in people who they truly are in sort of a remarkable way they can't even help themselves and as you're describing Nancy Pelosi this cool calm collected this passionate you know Jeff feel general and but then he throws a temper tantrum and then she doubles down on explaining the temper tantrum in a way that portrayed her as venal and petty in about her where you just said the president give a speech about you in this country and its future and that's not a pretty good contra that's not a very good contrast for the Democrats yeah and it just when when people try and think they're reacting to trump intro and a champion way

Trump's State of the Union draws sharp reaction
"Let's talk about last night's state of the union address and all the drama that ensued both before and afterwards anyone who takes teleprompter trump to seriously has been paying attention for the past four years what rally trump and Twitter trump say is what matters that's the real trump but overall I thought it was more of a campaign speech than anything else with some truly incredible viral moments mixed in I mean the man knows how to put on a show dealing missing was cone in the hero dog who took down ISIS leader al Baghdadi I'm actually a little surprised that the job was in there because basically he did everything else that was the only thing missing well not he said that I'm that I now right from highlighting one hundred year old brigadier general Charles McGee a former to ski airmen to having the First Lady surprise Rush Limbaugh pride presenting him the presidential medal of freedom right there on the spot to the reunion of sergeant first class towns in Williams with his family after he been deployed in Afghanistan for the past seven months his fourth tour in the region I mean there were some jaw dropping emotional moments I did not think they were literally going to award rush right the medal of freedom right there during the state of the union there were rumors that it was going to happen that the president wanted to give a medal of freedom but like
A Helcopter View Of The Menacing Taal Volcano In The Philippines
"Volcano in the Philippines is still spitting out ash steam and lava hundreds of thousands of people have been evacuated and scientists say the ground is rumbling which means magma is shifting underneath the volcano so they're warning that a violent eruption is still possible and here's Julie McCarthy is just back from a tour of the volcano on board a Philippine Air Force helicopter he truly hi there what did you see from up there well the views were extraordinary no well there are acres and acres of undisturbed ash and it looks like someone has thrown up a cashmere blanket over the slopes it has the smooth almost on real appearance except for these tiny little track marks it looks like some obviously some animals scurried across his big sheet of babies color and then you break around the other side of the island and that surfaces streaked with Fisher's openings in the earth and there's no life left the the trees the shrubs the brush their stripped there motionless in it in it looks like the vestiges of an atomic bomb and on this flyover are also saw hundreds of fish cages busted up along the shores of taal lake in which this volcano sets the agriculture department announced today look towel fishes safe for consumption of it's called alive few days ago the health department was saying just the opposite so we're getting confusing messages I would be confusing messages out for people who are already in a state of disarray I mean many thousands of people have been evacuated how are they doing well a hundred and seventy one thousand of them and counting have gone to evacuation centers and the world ninety four thousand are outside those centers they went to relatives but many of them are showing up at shelters to eat and they're starting to get turned away now imagine you're one of them scrounging around for food all you can think about is is getting back home but the authorities have imposed a strict walk out of the towns within the danger zone of the volcano brigadier general Marciano T.

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish. And I'm Mary Louise Kelley, although President Trump is pulling the US military out of Syria, the US troops next door in Iraq or expected to stay put there are about five thousand of them, and they keep a relatively low profile mostly sticking to US bases. In fact, it has been years since an American general strolled around downtown Baghdad well that change today and NPR's Jane Arraf was invited along for the walk. She joins us now from Baghdad. Hey, jane. Hi, mary. Louise, so how significant is it for US commander to be out and about walking the streets of Baghdad Email? It's pretty significant because really it hasn't happened for very long time, this particular commander was Brigadier General Austin Ren, I and he's deputy commander of U S forces in Iraq. So he was taking along by his rank he counterpart to three star general named Jalil by now. Iraq for the past three years. It's been busy fighting ISIS. So it hasn't been really as safe as it is now and also, you know, the Iraqis aren't so keen to have US generals walking around the streets because they're Iranian-backed groups that think all the US troops should leave. There's the legacy of the war. So to help him walking around amid thousands and thousands of people was kind of a big deal. And did he have a huge security entourage with them? I mean how how is he being protected? He did have security entourage. He had a personal security detail, and they were armed, and they were certainly keeping watch. But you know, at one point we were having tea on this kind of raised platform in the middle of the street. And there were literally thousands of people who were jammed into these narrow alleys doing their shopping going to the pet market. He himself was wearing a marine uniform. No body armor, very relaxed Foulis kind of the most surprise. Sizing thing that in the midst of all this chaos, which you would normally think would be potentially dangerous. They didn't seem to feel. There was much of a threat. And you got to talk to Michelle we're out and about walking. What did he say about what he was seeing? And how he felt about it. So we have to remember that. This is a guy who has been through Volusia, you know, the battle for bluejean two thousand and four which was absolutely horrific. This is not his first time around. Here's a little bit of what he had to say to.
