"Tweeted a hart rudman commission review. All of national security spent three years in a really thorough first win since nineteen forty seven and when we reported it to the secretary of defense this was late in the clinton administration must of an either november or december but he turned us and he said we're going to get hit and he was so sober about it and so clear about it he said. I don't know what will happen. I don't know where oh happen for. There are too many people planning to many things. Well i don't know remember remembered it or not i do. Only because of the nine eleven commission read the speech that rumsfeld gave on the ten september two thousand one about the need to really you know root and branch changed the way. The pentagon is organized. I believe you're the one who said the pentagon these it becomes a square. There's a tremendous amount of bureaucracy inside that building. I think in full bird. Colonel over there has more staff and eisenhower. Did the day before overlord. If lloyd austin decides he wants to change the color of the coffee cups in the mess it'll take him bill full four years to get it done. I'm overstating the case. I know for a fact but it's very difficult to more people. You have participating in decision the harder it is to get a decision. Actually i think mcnamara when he was secretary of defense said trying to change the time in which people went to coffee was a major challenge inside the building owned by the way the rumsfeld speech. I'm using in a report. I'm doing on the need to profoundly overhaul the pentagon but the rumsfeld's speech of september tenth amazing. He'd asked me to his adviser back in. Oh i guess march and we'd been working on a bunch of stuff. I think had we not had nine eleven. The degree to which rumsfeld would have overhauled the pentagon would have been shocking and would've been a major contribution. I agree with that. Yeah and you remember the trouble. Chuck hagel god because he had said before he was nominated one things. He had to sort of unravel as he said. The bureaucracy at the pentagon is bloated. Get in trouble. He was criticized when he went before the armed services committee. For having said that all you have to do is walk through the building. One time with your eyes open and you see that the dead also goes back to your earlier point. There's a bipartisan comment. Congress both republican and democrat has had no ability to look at itself. He came after the intelligence committees were established after in seventy four seventy five. But if you're on the committee you should not be on any other committee that should be. They should have appropriation authority. Instead and the house committee has more authority than the senate committee we'd proposed equalizing. They did neither just to look at the record. I mean this is gonna sound a little partisan equalised in my second sentence. But i think congressman unions turned the committee into something other than was supposed to be. And then what is it. Become the democrats get the majority back at becomes peach but committee in both cases. It was a misuse of congressional oversight. Which is already in my view. I say grossly underperforming. It's tough business to do oversight and really difficult in a secret environment by the way. I think you were being too generous going to square. It probably ought to be a triangle triangle. I said if you could reduce the pentagon to a triangle and during the rest of it into a national museum of military affairs we would have a better defense system. You might actually wanna consider saying the problem is with the pentagon. It's closer to two lines. It never connect. The building was completed the year i was born. I'm now seventy eight. It was designed to be a manager of global war at a time when people had manual typewriters and carbon paper so twenty three thousand people were trying to keep track of a worldwide american commitment to day. We have laptops and smartphones. And all those things and you have to say to yourself. What's the relative efficiency of an ipad or a laptop compared to a manual typewriter with carbon paper and literally. You should be able to shrink the pentagon two at most a third of its current size. Same way with until also among the things. It's both a threat. It's the threat i would say. Technically the internet has made it much more difficult. Defend ourselves tickling cyber where. Somebody's sitting in a basement can basically come after you. But the iranians chinese north koreans russians. They're all coming after us. So that threat. I mean i can imagine a situation where the fifth leak is disabled in the persian gulf as a consequence of hacking the nature of the threat has dramatically changed since two thousand one as a consequence of thing. I'm holding right now. An iphone and other sorts of technological changes. That makes it really really difficult to go after somebody who looks like you and me. Well you know it's fast name is. We're doing a paper right now. Tick-tock tick-tock now has more hours of viewing than facebook. And it's a chinese system and they're gathering data and people are paying the chinese to allow them to gather data. You look at this and you think are we just totally nuts. Answer of course is yes. We are totally nuts and one of the examples. I have to ask you about 'cause it fits right back into the nine eleven commission. Report you all named khalid sheikh mohammed as the mastermind the principal architect of the nine eleven attacks as i understand it. He's now in pretrial. Twenty years later i mean. How can this possibly make any sense. Well his nephew is a maximum security prison. He's already been sentenced for the ninety three bombing. No it doesn't make any sense at all. The evidence is absolute non again. A lawyer will tell me. Oh no that all. His confessions have been compromised because they were delivered through enhanced interrogation. I doubt that that would hold up that accusation in any courtroom. Personally i think they should have brought him into court tried him. We got him on. Devoted rations did that. But they've made a terrible mistake and didn't call the mayor ahead of time. So they were starting to move him up brooklyn to try him over manhattan. You know and if you don't let the mayor no that's gonna happen. It makes it difficult to carry out plan but yet it's ridiculous. He's in pretrial. After twenty years they could have moved to civilian court when tottenham. Oh yeah they it on that as well. But i mean i'm sitting here is an american thinking my countries now so wrapped up in itself that twenty years afterwards and then. I'm told that the pre trial may literally run for another year and that the first step of the pretrial will be proving that the guy who's the judge is legitimate the judge he would either have been executed or be serving a life sentence right now if abroad him to federal court as did his nephew who planned the first attack on the world trade center. I completely agree with you. It's gone on way way too long. It must be agonizing for families. I know it was when the nine eleven commission all the way back then it was agonizing that we still hadn't done anything. Experience of withdraw from afghanistan around the twentieth anniversary must just be a further round of pain. Yeah i'm sure that's true so in your own mind. What should americans take out of twenty years.

He's hiding from the Taliban with his wife and four Children. After trying for years to get out of Afghanistan to know about. He had 19 warnings. My God! One was on board, one of two Black Hawk helicopters. They made an emergency landing in a blinding snowstorm, writes the daily Mail. When the interpreter came to his rescue. Hello, Mr President, Save me and my family, Mohammed said. Going to the Wall Street Journal. Don't forget me here. Mohammed, going only by his first name for safety reasons is hiding from the Taliban. With his family. After trying for years to get out of Afghanistan, to no avail. And Mohammed, while working for the U. S Army had a key role in a story often repeated and embellished. By Biden himself. During his 2000 and eight run for vice president. As Senator Biden was on board, one of two Black Hawk helicopters. They made an emergency landing in a blinding snowstorm alongside then senators John Kerry and Chuck Hagel. Where the hell is Chuck Hagel. No. He likes to spend a lot of time in Florida eating grouper. Trashing Trump. And John Kerry. Where is he blow hard flying around the earth? About carbon dioxide. Mohammed is one of thousands of s I V applicants left behind that's interpreters or people who assisted our forces. There were 88,000 s ivy applicants. And as of last week only 6000 got out. Hello? That means over 80,000 had been left behind. There's going to be mass graves over there. It was frightening. There was somebody being interviewed on Fox and you can hear the gunshots in the background. Did you hear that Mr Producer? They're going house to house killing people. You could hear the shooting. I mean, it's one thing If your job buying and you have no morals, you have no conscious Six stupid, nasty old man. But then then dragged the whole country.

"But let me ask. I'll tell you what, Why don't we ask the interpreter that protected Joe Biden's senator Joe Biden's life in 2008 when he was in Afghanistan, an interpreter who has left behind like hundreds of Americans, Maybe thousands of Americans we don't know yet, and so many other thousands of Afghans Who were loyal to America who saved Americans from harm's way, and this president abandoned that man and so many others, and I think that's It's absolutely accurate. You know, there are moments in in time and and faith when those sorts of things conspire and the fact that both John Kerry and Joe Biden were on that helicopter they got straight in Afghanistan. Don't forget Chuck Hagel and and had had that interpreter not went and rescued him. The world might be a lot different in this day. And indeed, Greg, what did what did the Internet say? Well, wake of in the wake of Biden's speech after the speech was done, there had to be some Explosion and what what really shocked me was the Washington Post, which their head of their their slugline is, of course democracy dies in darkness they posted right after that. I saw that this is a moral disaster. One attributable not to the actions of the military diplomatic personnel in Kabul. It's all Biden and his administration. That's the Washington Post. And when the Washington Post when you're a Democrat, and you lose the Washington Post, obviously, you're in some some fairly deep trouble. I will say this the the slogan Of the post democracy dies in the darkness that used to be something to prevent. Now it's their mission statement. Yeah, Democracy dies in the darkness. Let's let's recognize and dark. The criticism is nice to see. I mean and again, you have some talking heads on some CNN, you have some editorial writers, some a few in the big newspapers, who are critical of Biden. But he didn't take any questions he abandoned Americans. There are reports that we knew about the suicide bombers, and yet we didn't blow them up. Well, the the absolute just stark failure, the the naked failure. Of what happened. If this happened under President Trump President Bush, Helland er President Obama. You still would have seen more questions, but they're they're just not Pushing. How did this happen? Where was Joe was? Was Joe asleep? Because, listen, this failure could very well be at the Pentagon. This failure could very well be not Joe Biden. He could have been on vacation or taking a nap. But I think that I think that the spin is to protect the fact that you're Biden was on vacation or taking a nap or having his afternoon ice cream. This is this shows not just a failure in Afghanistan. This shows an absolute failure of leadership of the White House who is in charge of this what you're saying. Is that what we're seeing a gross level of incompetence that now has been exposed to a to a far greater extent than it had been expressed up to this for four years, They turned the Trump Administration inside and out. Everybody was Raton on everybody. And and it was because what he had McDonald's or there was. There were actually the college football turn toward phone call, or or Tweeter and we had reports for days on this Joe Biden is M I A as again hundreds of Americans are just left behind now become hostages. And I will. Well. There was a report last week and a village goes the report middle last week, they talked about some of the Afghan citizens who worked for radio Free Europe and and, uh, the global media thing called US Global media that it's in essence friendly propagandists. And these are some of the people that the Taliban want to get their hands on the worst. 600 of them just left him there. CF now. Thank thanks for your service. And and we'll move on. Yeah, you'll find the list, though, to find their address. And, you know, I'm sure you have a nice stern talking with them. Hello, Taliban outside the door. Come on. Always gonna have a conversation like the Mafia. I just want you to come on over for a couple of minutes. Talk things through me Ask you a different question. If if if Biden zords orders, let's let's make the assumption that he was orchestrating this. It is Order for withdrawal was so strategically flawed. Wouldn't the military people know how to properly withdraw and further if they were receiving orders that they knew were going to be disastrous? Why didn't anybody resigned? I mean, I'm not a military expert, but I thought that's what high ranking military people do. You get an order You can't follow. Can't morally follow it. You resign. I think one guy did. I don't know what I'm on the top of my head. I think you got you got pulled over his missiles. You get you get fired, resigned? He just spoke out. That's part of the reason why, and also, let's be honest ego prestige. These five star generals like to be five star generals. They like to be in the inner circle. They like to be invited to the D. C cocktail parties. They can disagree with Joe Biden, but since nothing will come of them, they won't get criticism outside of outlets like this one. No harm, no foul. I I just find it. Greg could be amazing that nobody at the Department of Defense Nobody in the senior military leadership of this country has paid any price up to this point with regard to taking some level of account, and that's got a really hack off a lot of people. And it's funny, even even like if you can think of Trump right now, how many people he just fired because they didn't follow through on what they were supposed to do. I mean, everybody's looking at it like Well, why aren't you firing these any of these people? And why would they resign in the first place? Well, that's just it. My understanding of of the military code of conduct is if you are somebody who receives an order from a superior that you cannot in good conscience carry out you resign. I mean, if you're an officer, that's that's the way it works..

Can Biden his people sell that to the American people to the point where they don't hold it against him Long term. Yeah, They think they can sell anything. They can sell delusion to America, and that's what America will have to buy. If they believe what Joe Biden told us last week. This was a successful exit. I use that word.

Us embassy is advising americans in afghanistan to leave the country immediately saying its ability to assist them is limited given the security threats posed by the expanding taliban insurgency a sobering reality is setting in just two and a half weeks before the us completely withdraws from afghanistan during twenty years of war against al qaeda and its backers falling the nine eleven terror attacks on us soil. Some twenty four hundred us military personnel have died more than twenty thousand have been wounded and civilian deaths in afghanistan. Number in the tens of thousands two decades after the taliban regime was toppled. The insurgency is quickly expanding. Today it got within one hundred miles of the capital kabul former defense secretary. Chuck hagel tells. Npr's here now the us is investments. Seems wasted. I mean what happened after twenty years as much investment as we put in there. How could this happen so fast and it just didn't happen over the last two years it's been happening. The corrupt government. We weren't pulling attention. Hagel says while the us did a lot of work good work. That may life better for some in afghanistan. U s forces were always seen as outsiders.

"From npr and wvu are. I'm robin young. And i'm tanya moseley. It's here now. President biden is back at the white house after his first foreign trip. Which included meeting with russian president vladimir putin the g. seven england and the nato summit in brussels and the war in afghanistan was a major topic biden repeated his pledge to end the war by september. Eleventh which is the twentieth anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Our troops are coming home. We agreed that our diplomatic economic humanitarian commitment to the afghan people and our support. For the afghan national defensive security forces will endure and that american withdrawal from afghanistan is now underway. Npr's tom bowman told us just yesterday. That all us troops could be home by mid july. Which is well ahead of schedule. Let's bring in former defense secretary. Chuck hagel for more and secretary hagel. Welcome back to the show. We actually haven't spoken to you. Since president biden announced his plan to end. The war is a good idea. It is a good idea. We've been there for twenty years. We've done a lot of good. But after twenty years i think we expect that the afghan government is strong enough independent enough. Do carry on without us. Now we're going to continue to support them diplomatically economically in every way. But we're not gonna continue the fight a war form. And i don't i don't think we should. There's no military resolution to this. It's going be decided by the people by the afghan people Diplomacy yes the military is part of it. But this can't continue to drag out. This is not two thousand and one. This is twenty years later. They're different threats. Certain to the united states in the world coming from all parts of the world so I think the reevaluation that president biden put into this is correct. I think is decision is correct secretary. You know the big worry though. Is that that this withdrawal will open the door wider to the taliban. They have not lived up to the peace agreement terms that they signed with the trump administration. Is this a concern for you. Well sure There are risks in every decision of president makes. And you've gotta decide where. America is going to place its resources. What are its priorities. And as i said after twenty years it would seem to me. And i think the american people would expect this to that win. Will the afghan government be strong enough to defend itself. I don't know what's going to happen there I suspect they'll be some compromise in how they a government. I don't know but there's risk and everything and i don't think you can as president be paralyzed by risks in going through a what. If what. if what. If scenario every day on every decision you gotta make a decision. I understand exactly what you're saying. It's been twenty years But do you have confidence that the the afghan government can stop the taliban at this stage from taking control of the whole country. They already control much of the rule areas. Yes well the taliban very strong but let's evaluate that. Why are they strong. Well obviously a lot of people in afghanistan or them now. They have brutal tactics intimidate but they couldn't be as strong as they currently are without the people of afghanistan or stripling. A large portion of people have ghanistan supporting him and if the people are against government. I mean i served in vietnam. That's a good example of what can happen. The people turn against a government. And there's nothing united states can do you can drop or kinds of bombs. Spent twenty years in a lot of casualties on both sides. And we've taken a lot. Thousands of dead americans and wounded. And so again you gotta at some point come to a point as a leader in our national interest make a decision and it is uncertain but i think the decision for the right reasons been made. I wanna ask you about something something else secretary. It seems clear. Though that the focus is now turning away from the middle east and to china and russia do these two countries now pose in your view the the biggest national security threat to the us and broadly. How does the administration counter that threat. Well yes i think. They do represent the biggest threats to this country those two nations as any nations out there today. The answer the question that you just ask. How do you counter this. I think it's exactly what president biden has done this week. You start with your friends with your allies. With your partner strengthening alliances we have formed and built since world war two. You're much stronger as an alliance as a group of nations in dealing with adversaries democratically economically militarily intelligence. You're far far stronger. I think president biden is wise in strengthening those alliances especially before he met with president putin president xi in china china's watching this. That's the first step. The second step is to be very clear very direct. As a president biden. president putin's conversation was according to reports. You come at this from a position of strength not weakness but strength as president biden said you. You lay down rules of the road now. That doesn't mean that the other countries are gonna follow it. The main do necessarily trust the other countries. But i think you've got to clear the air you have to engage. You have to be direct. And i think that's that's where president biden is headed former defense secretary. Chuck hagel secretary. Thank you so much for speaking with us well. How hot is it in the western.

And that you know I can't just be hot air we need to put The money where where the work needs to go and work again with governors and mayors to make sure that regional development really takes off. Some people would say one of the biggest thing to do is they're electrified transportation electric cars. They're starting to take off more, and you were part of a deal in the last great the great recession, where's which restructured and bailed out the auto industry, the auto industry. Soon as Trump got elected. Some of them forgot about that. And said to relax those rules. How do you see now? You know, with the new president, engaging the auto industry, some of which have opposed climate action Recently. How do you see that? Playing out? Well, 1st 1st of all, I think my this is just a you know, the educated guess I get think which is they have their sort of two phases. Uh, thank God for California and the 17 states that associate themselves with California that, uh, rejected what what Trump was trying to do. They have the authority to basically have their own standards. They kept ah, bunch of the car companies at the table to move forward with, uh, The cafe standards that Obama had put in place through 2025. I think the Biden administration may go and try to do a deal that incorporates what Mary Nichols, who was the head of carb in California's a California regulator was able to do out there and a bunch of states have signed on to to make that a national program. And then in that 2025 to 2030 period, try to get actionable commitments to move towards electric vehicles. You know, a lot of them are making announcement. General Motors just before the new year was one of those companies by the way that was trying to reduce the Obama commitments, But they saw the light after the election. They pivoted pretty quickly made an announcement that they're investing $27 billion in electrification. Ford is coming out with an all electric F 1 50 all electric Mustang, these iconic vehicles of their brands. And I think the administration I think will probably not go to the hill. They'll go directly to the unions and the companies and say, You know what incentives You need toe to accelerate this process. And how are we gonna hold you accountable? You know, Let's get those commitments locked in early as as Obama did in 2000 and nine and then lets make them actionable s O that we see the movement towards new car sales being zero emission vehicles rapidly toward in the 2030 and California's announced that they will Not permit the sale except for zero emission vehicles after 2035. I think that's what the whole country needs to get moving towards on whether you know whether it's 2035 or 2037. It's got to be someplace in that timeframe, said that we have are all electrical. Service transportation system, and, you know, tracks are next. It's a little more challenging. There might be room for hydrogen and the solution set for certainly for fleet vehicles and maybe for heavy duty trucks rather than electrification, the marketplace of kind of sort that out Companies know that the people who are building new engines know that that they're gonna have to basically design engines for, uh, for every big market in the world, not just in the US but but in the U and Canada in in China. They're gonna have to rapidly move towards zero. Mission transportation. Some of these sectors are harder to de carbonized manufacturing, particularly ones that use a lot of heat steel cement. Glass, but their solutions there that I think and I can't get going and, you know, air travel, Marine travel Marine, you know, particularly moving goods.

"Hopefully stepped down some of these more aggressive people who keep threatening our Men and women who has saved just doing their jobs, just doing what they're supposed to do or what they were elected to do, and they shouldn't feel fear for their livelihood is in their lives and for their families. Which is what's happening right now. My guest today or Chuck Hagel, former Republican senator from Nebraska and secretary of defense under President Obama, and Christine Todd Whitman, former governor of New Jersey, who led the U. S EPA under the second President Bush. They're both board members of the American Security Project, a centrist group of senior government officials, military officers and business executives. Later in the program we'll hear from former White House chief of staff John Podesta, Governor Whitman, you tweeted that people will die because of an EPA rule that limits the use of scientific studies and crafting public health rules. We've seen the destruction of half a century of environmental productions. What's it going to take to restore the health of the U. S. C. P A. And what do you think of Biden's nominee to run the agency Michael Regan. I've had the only person I don't know personally that he has tapped to be involved with the environment and with climate change. Is that the incoming administrator of the EPA, I do not know him personally, but clearly his record just one of someone who believes in the issue who understands the mission of the agency, which is simply to protect public health and the environment. That's really all it's about. Obviously, What has to happen is you have to start to rebuild the budget. Because it's been shorn year after year, particularly by this administration. The incoming EPA administrator has to really I think one of the first things they ought to do is go have all hands meetings and then go to the various And entities within the division of Water, the division of air each and every one of those and to tell them that science matters now that EPA is back on track to protect human health and the environment. That's what it's about. That's what he's committed to doing. And then with the A number that all the things that President elect Biden has said all the people that he's appointed and their commitment to these various issues, science is once again going to become important and that is that's where we really have to rebuild. That's part of the institutional undermining that this president has done is he's not only undermined the public's confidence in any part of government, but particularly with the scientists, and we saw it with the Corona virus. I mean, We are where we are today because this administration wouldn't take it seriously wouldn't listen to the scientists and they kept denigrating the scientists and pushing him off to it. The side and particularly with the issue of climate That This administration has stopped and the scientists all across the government, not just to the EPA from attending conferences where climate change might be mentioned. You're not allowed to talk about climate change to have Noah. He told that they cannot factor in the impact of global warming on the seas as they try to project out The storm season's his mindless. We know that when the water's heat as they have in our oceans that that impacts climate and that impacts The frequency and severity of these storms that we've been seeing, and fortunately, the general public gets it. I mean better than 50% of Americans, and better than 50% of Republicans recognize that the climate is changing. It's having a bad impact. And that we need and can do something about it, and it's going to take that kind of commitment, but we have it finally on the top, and it's the administrator. The new administrator has to be Constant impounding that message that we believe in science that we're going to ensure that we are protective of human health and the environment because that's the job of the agency. Governor Whitman, What do you see as the low hanging fruit for bipartisan whether its infrastructure agreement around climate energy? Maybe it's not called climate is good. Doesn't have that loaded word, right? I would say infrastructure is going to be the easiest of those. But I this administration and this president elect has shown that he is absolutely committed to addressing the issue of climate because it affects everything it infects infrastructure. Where you gonna build. How do you build that infrastructure? How close? What do you do with states like mine and New Jersey? That our coastal states What do you rebuild? That's close to the ocean because you know what? That's not gonna be the same in another few years. It's gonna change and how you build your how you redo your infrastructure is going to be impacted by how climate might Change things around that wherever that infrastructure is so It's gonna be, uh, it's gonna be a challenge. It's gonna be harder to get people together on it. But what one of the things we have to do is we have to do so take some concrete steps here in the United States. Address the issue that show that we're serious about it. I mean, I agree getting back on the pride and the Paris climate accord is going to be important and the administration has shown it is going to do that the new incoming administration they're going to do that. And that's all well and good. But right now, our allies all those who signed it, looking as to say, Look, you guys negotiated this. We made changes in order to accommodate what you thought was important. And then you walk away from it. How can we trust you again? So until we take some steps around whether it's around energy And whether and putting real money into more renewable energy, more research and development on that, whatever those steps are, we need to do a couple things going to be difficult to get done. Probably We need to do them here before the rest of the world really takes us seriously and will negotiate with us and the same way that they did before. I mean, they need us Still, they want us. They want to set the table. We're still going to be important. Don't get me wrong, But there's a skepticism that is there because of our past behavior. The way we've gotten people right up to the cross to drink the water, and then we back away. So I do think that one of the things that's going to be important is that they see some real signal here. However, However, it's done whether it's a change in the way that the federal government itself. Contracts. How important it puts a climate change into the various contracts, energy conservation, water conservation, whatever they do, but we need to take some hard core steps here. In order to really get us back to a place where we can have the kind of influence we had before internationally. Secretary Hagel reporter abroad Less Garden recently wrote an alarming story in The New York Times Magazine titled How Russia Wins the Climate Crisis. The article says Warmer temperatures will increase Russia's agricultural production and transform Siberia into a more hospitable and productive region. John McCain once famously said Russia's a mob run gas station Do you agree that a global economy based on fossil fuels and this chaos we've seen benefits Russia Well, no question about it if that's where we were going, if that's where the world was going, but that the world's not going in that direction. I don't believe the reality is we can't continue. In that direction and the benefits benefits. Russia is clearly if we continue to rely on on fossil fuels for everything, but unfortunately, we're not going to go that direction. But it's it's gonna be difficult as we all know, um, you know, it's interesting and you all know the numbers on this, but I was reading over the weekend.

"During his campaign, President elect Joe Biden pledged to hit the ground running with plans to fight climate change, and he's assembled a team of heavy hitters to put his climate plan into action. But recent events such as the continuing covert pandemic, the violent insurrection of the nation's capital, and the second impeachment of President Donald Trump could prove a distraction during that all important 1st 100 days. Can Biden bring the country together and move it forward? On today's program, the club's climate one host, Greg Dalton, speaks with former Cabinet secretaries and a former White House climate advisor on what's ahead for Biden's whole government approach to climate action. Christine Todd Whitman is the former governor of New Jersey. She served as head of the Environmental Protection Agency under President George W. Bush. Chuck Hagel is a former Republican senator from Nebraska and was secretary of defense under President Obama. Both Whitman and Hagel, Our board members of the American Security Project, a centrist group of senior government officials, military officers and business executives. When they spoke, the nation was still reeling from the attack on the capital by Trump supporters who were attempting to prevent Congress from certifying the election of Joe Biden and Camilla Harris. Secretary Hagel Azad Vietnam veteran into term U S. Senator, How do you see the violent occupation of the U. S Capitol? And what should the consequences be for members of Congress who voted after the riot? To overturn the election. Well, I think every American Believes what they saw last week was disgraceful. Was shameful. Um As to what should be the consequences of those who perpetrated this and who took part in this insurrection. An invasion and destruction the capital. There should be severe consequences. Um, certainly those who participated And who crashed into the capital and did violence to other people. As you know, five people lost their lives during this time. But also those who were responsible for inciting it. And I have to say, I think that includes the president, United States. I'm very sad to say that has an American Who has served this country and had the privilege of serving this country in many capacities, the have to say that the president of the United States was involved in the Insurrection of what we saw last week in our nation's capital. He needs to be held accountable just as those who invaded and did damage Uh to our capital. If you were in the Senate today, would you vote to remove him from office? I would And how about your former colleagues? Ted Cruz? I don't think Josh Hollywood think the Senate when you were there. What about senators who supported this? I can't think of a more irresponsible That, uh, that could have been done by any of my colleagues. I've never seen a more here responsible. Act by any of my colleagues. When I was in the Senate as this to witness what they witnessed, they were there they underwent. Um, all the protections that Capitol Hills police gave him and whisking them off the Senate floor. They saw it. They were right there but still carry forward. They're preposterous. Notions and what the president has talked about since the election actually before the election that the collection was fraudulent and was stolen when there's no evidence whatsoever, 60 lawsuits were thrown out by courts at every level, two of them by the Supreme Court. Um, uh, show that there was nothing to it, but yet they went forward to ingratiate themselves with the Trump political base. I suspect looking at their own political interest. In being the presidential Republican presidential candidate 2024. I don't ever ascribe motives to people, but it seems to me that has to be pretty clear Azzam motive as to why they did it because there was no evidence To show that anything was fraudulent. In this election, Governor Whitman you worked for Donald Rumsfeld during the next administration and have been recently kind of estranged from your your party. You've praised Lisa Murkowski Rip Mitt Romney, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, who you see now who are voices of conviction and courage on down on the Republican Party. Well, those would be the ones I'd start with. Without question. I mean, there are others unfortunate about Romney's been very quiet. So he was quiet on the sixties from quiet since Lisa Murkowski's the one that stood up and said things You know there. There are a number of the senators who didn't get the message from what happened on the stakes because when you started the process of counting the electoral ballots, there were 14 senators that we're going to object after the riots After they got back to doing it. They were six, maybe seven, who still objected, and I agree with Secretary Hagel. They should face the same kind of punishment that the president should Face, but probably that will be in the ballot box. And then it'll be up to us to remind people of what this has led to because we're going to see more of this. There are Republicans who Got the message. There are Republicans who never were on that side. They will be. Hopefully the leaders there is the problem solvers focus in both houses where you have an equal number of Republicans and Democrats who have worked together and will continue to work together. And with the Congress being as close as it is in both houses, I think you're going to see that they're going Tol have more influence in before and that's good and hopefully enough of the rest of them. Were shaken up enough by what happened and their part in it and how they lived through it that they will step back and recognize that we got big problems in this country with the Corona Corona virus, which I would argue is climate related, and we until we get that under control, we can't get the economy growing back to where it needs to go, so There's a lot of work to be done, and both sides should be able to agree that those are issues that need to be addressed and then start moving forward on them. Governor Women Joe Biden and comma Harris will soon be inaugurated. How will the right of the capital impact their ability to get serious about the pandemic, heal the economy and restart efforts to confront climate change? I think the big challenge is gonna be those still 15 million people who believe this election was stolen. Because approach very strong base is not gonna go away, and they are going to keep pressure on their elected representatives not to be helpful not to work across the aisle not to Enable Joe Biden to get this country back on track..

"Senate confirmation hearing scheduled for today for several members of the President elect's Cabinet. The nominees to have the State Department, the Pentagon, Homeland Security and Treasury Department are among those appearing before Senate committees. Treasury nominee Janet Yellen is testifying before the Senate Finance Committee at this hour and April. Haynes, nominated as director of National Intelligence, is answering questions from the Senate Intelligence Committee. Virginia U. S. Senator Mark Warner, the vice chair of that committee, said this morning that President Trump has done a lot of damage to the intelligence community. Our intelligence professionals have been unfairly maligned. Their expertise, knowledge and analysis has often been ignored, or even sometimes ridiculed. By a president who seems oftentimes UN interested in facts have confirmed Haines would be the first female Deanna a job that was created following the 9 11 attacks. The nominees are unlikely to be confirmed, though, by inauguration Day tomorrow, but they could get a vote within the next few days to a week. However, for Lloyd Austin, the retired four Army four star Army general who's nominated as defense secretary, a waiver is also required from Congress. That's because he's only been out of uniform for four years. A federal law Requires anyone who leads the Pentagon to have been out of the military for at least seven years. While a group of 15 former Defense Department officials support the waiver for Austin, the hill reporting they sent a letter to the Senate Armed Services Committee, which is holding that hearing on his nomination today. Among those who signed it former secretaries of defense, including Chuck Hagel and Leon Panetta, As well as former deputies and secretaries of armed service branches. They say the country needs an experienced, competent, organized and respected secretary of defense. Three Democrats on the Armed Services Committee opposed the waiver as too many Republicans up ahead.

It's not the party that I joined many, many years ago. So it's just gonna be an issue The Republican Party.

And both parties. I think you're in a state of turmoil. That's former senator and former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. Thank you for your time. Thank you. The last week of December was the deadliest yet for people in nursing homes with more than 6400 deaths. More than a third of all covert 19 deaths are now linked to long term care Corona virus. Vaccines are reaching more and more facilities, but many worry they won't come soon enough. To stave off a lot more deaths Will stone reports Terry Robertson had no interest in waiting till the second week of January to start vaccinating the residents and staff of the long term care community he runs north of Seattle. We got notice from CVS January 9 was our first date. Not that that doesn't work. So Robertson switch to another pharmacy. One that was able to bring the first doses to Josephine. Caring community much sooner. Just a few days after Christmas, you know, I just catch me and my dreaming is the nightmare over. I'm just like, Wow, this thing could really be over. In the late fall. The Corona virus was rampant in this northwest corner of Washington state. Eventually it got a foothold and Josephine residents just had so many sex positive and we're doing everything we can. By early December, more than 170 people had been infected. Some died. And it's the same story in nursing homes and assisted living communities in dozens of states. Unfortunately, even though we've been at this for so many months, not that much has changed. That's tomorrow Cadets ska professor who studies long term care at the University of Chicago, She says the research is clear. Even the best run nursing homes are not impervious to outbreaks. When there's a reservoir of disease in surrounding city or town all along. It's just been delusional that we could have these areas with high community spread and somehow protect long term care residents. It just doesn't work Staff come and go. Some work at multiple places and residents move in and out to the vaccine is a key turning point. But Connecticut says it's not a magic bullet. I think it'll dramatically reduce the number of deaths that we see. But will it eliminate the problem? Not yet there will need to be multiple rounds of vaccination to deal with the churn of staff and residents. In Pennsylvania and many states. At least half of all covert deaths are linked to long term care. Zach Shamberg leads an industry group in the state, He says nursing homes, which have struggled to get Peopie remained desperate since day one of the pandemic We have fought for one thing, and that's prioritization. And it's no different now than it was 10 or 11 months ago. Some of Samberg's members aren't scheduled to get the vaccine until late January, or even early February. Elaine Ryan with AARP says there just hasn't been enough transparency about nursing home outbreaks and now vaccines. It is an American tragedy. It's a national disaster. It's not that we don't know how there is a lack of accountability. Some states, including West Virginia in Connecticut, are doing well with vaccinating. So, says Mark Parkinson, with the American Health Care Association. Every week that the vaccine is delayed in long term care facilities will mean at least an additional 4 to 6000 deaths.

"We're gonna start with this fact the U. S military has no role in the electoral process. Yet President Trump and his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, have suggested that armed forces could be used to help the president overturn the results of the election that he lost and the speculation around their interests in this false notion, so concerned all 10 living former secretaries of defense, they felt the need to band together to remind the American public that Trump lost and that the military does not involve itself in U. S elections. Among the authors of the Washington Post op Ed is former defense secretary Chuck Hagel. He joins us now welcome back to all things considered. Now I understand this idea originated with former Vice President Dick Cheney. But was there a particular moment comment something from the president or his allies in recent weeks that caused you distress and caused you to sign on. Well, I I think I can speak for all the former secretaries. When I answered the question this way, yes. When we all learned of the loose Irresponsible, erratic conversation in the White House about imposing Martial law through the Insurrection Act, getting the military involved with overturning the elections and holding new elections and then in light of the tape that came out yesterday. President browbeating essentially threatening the secretary of state that Republican Secretary of State of Georgia the the constant inflaming of this issue that the president Continues. Tonto put forth with his tweets about the election being stolen fraudulent January 6 now Wednesday, there will be an effort to overturn the electors. Certification of the election is not gonna go anywhere. It's folly, but all those things added up to a real concern. We all had The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley has dismissed this idea. But my question is, if this was an illegal order, right wouldn't million. Other officials hear it as illegal and therefore refused to follow it. Well, that's the question in our op Ed. You might recall that we talk about when our military every person in the military, every person. Who is in our government. We all take an oath of office to the Constitution, not to a president not to a commander in chief, not to a political party. But to the Constitution. We follow the law and if there is an illegal Order given by the commander in chief to a general, whether it's chairman of Joint chiefs or whomever he has every right To not follow through with that command, and we just wanted to remind the citizens of this country that we are a nation of laws. That's what we've always done. That's why they do the citizens need reminding, Or is this a message to those at the Pentagon? Well, it's both. I think the citizens because citizens are in charge of this country. The generals aren't nobody at the Pentagon. It's the citizen. And, yes, the citizens need to be reminded. But this was a message also to the professionals at at the Pentagon. I have every confidence And their integrity and their honesty and their forthrightness to do the right thing for this country. Absolutely. But do you have that same sort of sense for acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller? Well, Chris Miller is not a confirmed secretary of defense. I don't know him. I do know that the entire top management stress of a in top management structure of the Pentagon. Has been wiped out by the Trump appointees, putting in people who had no experience no background in these areas. And they're unconfirmed. We don't know a lot about him other than their factor the trump people, So yes, I have some concern about them. I think all of us do but we would assume That they would do the right thing for this country and follow the law. Since you're also former Republican senator, having represented Nebraska in the early two thousands. We want to ask you your reaction to Republican Senator Ted Cruz and others saying that they're going to vote against seating electors for Biden. I know you said this is folly. Why do you think they're doing it? Well, I don't know exactly their intentions. But I assume they're doing it, uh, to try to develop an allegiance to the Trump base that Donald Trump is leaving behind. Has he leaves office? And they've all made no secret of the fact that all of them cruise and others that they would like to be the nominee of the Republican Party for president in 2024. I suspect there's there's very much of a political reason for doing this. They know it can't go anywhere. They know it's folly. They know there's no return on this. Except to prolong things for a couple of days it and it just incites the trump people more. They're going to be demonstrations in Washington on Wednesday, there might be violence. I hope not. Probably around the country, So it's you said the trump people, And that sort of reminds me that this is a little bit of an intraparty civil war that we're seeing right between traditional Republicans and Trump loyalists. How could this be prepared? Or is this a point of no return for the party? Well, I think this is going to be an ongoing issue for the Republican Party. Certainly the next four years, but really the next two years as we've got a a new midterm election coming up in 2022, who is going to lead the party? What is the party stand for? I think the Republican Party has lost its bearing its compass..

I think the Republican Party has lost its bearing its compass. It's North star. It's become a truck party and the party is bigger than a president or any individual and I I'm not sure what they stand for anymore. It's not the party that I joined. Many, many years ago. So this is going to be an issue the Republican Party. I mean Biden's gonna have some management issues as well in his own party with his left wing, but I've always said it's not the left wing of the right wing of American politics. That that government and it's the center left seven right center right that govern this country and both parties. I think you're in a state of turmoil. That's former senator and former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. Thank you for your time. Thank you. The last week of December was the deadliest yet for people in nursing homes with more than 6400 deaths. More than a third of all covert 19 deaths are now linked to long term care Corona virus. Vaccines are reaching more and more facilities, but many worry they won't come soon enough. To stave off a lot more deaths Will stone reports Terry Robertson had no interest in waiting till the second week of January to start vaccinating the residents and staff of the long term care community he runs north of Seattle. We got notice from CVS January 9 was our first date method that doesn't work. So Robertson switch to another pharmacy. One that was able to bring the first doses to Josephine. Caring community much sooner. Just a few days after Christmas, you know, I just catch me and my dream is the nightmare over. I'm just like, Wow, this thing could really be over. In the late fall. The Corona virus was rampant in this northwest corner of Washington state. Eventually it got a foothold and Josephine residents just had so many sex positive and we're doing everything we can. By early December, more than 170 people had been infected. Some died. And it's the same story in nursing homes and assisted living communities in dozens of states. Unfortunately, even though we've been at this for so many months, not that much has changed. That's tomorrow. Connecticut professor who studies long term care at the University of Chicago, she says the research is clear. Even the best run nursing homes are not impervious to outbreaks. When there's a reservoir of disease in the surrounding city or town all along. It's just been delusional that we could have these areas with high community spread and somehow protect long term care residents. It just doesn't work Staff come and go. Some work at multiple places and residents move in and out to the vaccine is a key turning point. But Connecticut says it's not a magic bullet. I think it'll dramatically reduce the number of deaths that we see. But will it eliminate the problem? Not yet there will need to be multiple rounds of vaccination to deal with the churn of staff and residents. In Pennsylvania and many states. At least half of all covert deaths are linked to long term care. Zach Shamberg leads an industry group in the state, he says nursing homes, which have struggled to get Peopie remained desperate since day one of the pandemic. We have fought for one thing, and that's prioritization, and it's no different now than it was 10 or 11 months ago..

The hospital beds of stretched people are running out of beds running out of trained personnel who are exhausted right now. That's real. That's not fake. That's real. From the pulp from a public health perspective. I have no reason to doubt those numbers, and I think people need to be very aware that it's not just about the death as we talked about earlier. It's about the hospitalizations the capacity. These cases are having an impact in an array of ways, and people need to understand that there's a finish line in sight.
