"Also in maryland. A law aimed at supporting resident experiencing a mental health crisis. Goes into effect today. The thomas bloom. Raskin act is named after congressman. Jamie raskin son who took his own life earlier this year. Wmu's maryland reporter dominique. Marie of an esi spoke with. Liz aparicio a professor of behavioral and community health with the university of maryland school of public health. It's glenn to expand that states to learn one crisis call center so that trained counselors will periodically check in with people who've pre registered to receive calls rather than waiting for that person who's struggling in the moment themselves to reach out while they're increases and hopefully this will lead to earlier intervention and referral to mental health treatment. And other supports congressman. Jimmy raskin has been very vocal about the issue of suicide What does it mean to have. An elected official talks candidly about it. I have been really proud of representative raskin for using his platform in the way that he has to raise awareness about suicide prevention and really to model how his family is handling the aftermath of his son's death by suicide earlier this year. It is just so important to be able to speak openly about suicide just as we would with any other public health issue so it can be addressed directly without judgment or shame as a preventable health issue. I think another thing that we see with the raskin family experiences. That suicide doesn't discriminate. You know there are multiple reasons why people become suicidal and die by suicide so it really lifts sat veil and shows the range of folks who can be affected and families that can be affected by suicide. Do you think those calls will continue to increase coming out of this pandemic as we try to get back to some semblance of prepaid endemic life. I think that they will. And i think we may actually see an uptick in calls as people are going through this next transition so anytime that there's a major change in our lives. There's an adjustment that has to happen to that. So even if it's something that's exciting. Perhaps like kids going back to school were returning to the workplace or being able to see friends again. Those are still changes that we have to adjust to and so we really need to Give ourselves that time and space for those adjustments and not to give ourselves a hard time. If we're not super happy all the time we want to know that the range of reactions that we may be having is normal though. I won't be surprised if thing's increased for a while they get more intense as we're coming out of the pin oven and then just finally. I wonder you know people hearing this. You know maybe going through struggles of their own. Do you have any advice for those struggling with mental health currently either from the pandemic or as they are getting back to some semblance of normalcy. There's just never been a more important time to recognize that really. It's okay to be okay. It's understandable on. This is the time to reach out and take care of one. Another to support one another's mental health as well as get support for ourselves really going to need to work on building and continuing to strengthen our social support structures so that we are not struggling through these times alone that was w used dominique array of an se interviewing liz aparicio an assistant professor of behavioral and community health with university of maryland school of public health.

"So long so long by trumbull wamba and those are some of the headlines. This is democracy now democracy now dot org the warrant piece report. I'm amy goodman in new. York joined by democracy. Now co hosts means shea. Hi nermeen amy. And welcome to our listeners and viewers around the country and around the world donald rumsfeld chief architect of the iraq war died wednesday at the age of eighty eight rumsfeld served under four presidents and was secretary of defense under both presidents george w bush and gerald ford. His critics say he presided over systemic torture. Massacres of civilians and illegal wars. As defense secretary rumsfeld was quick to advise president. Bush target iraq after the nine eleven terror attacks even though kedah had been sheltered by the taliban in afghanistan and iraqi leader saddam hussein had nothing to do with the attack this is rumsfeld speaking at a press briefing in two thousand and two about whether rock gave weapons of mass destruction terrorists. The message is that there are known knowns there are things we know that we know there are unknown unknowns. That is to say there are things that we now know. We don't know but there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we do not know. We don't know so when we do the best we can and we pull all this information together and and we then say well. That's basically what we see as the situation that is really only the known knowns and the known unknowns that was donald rumsfeld in two thousand and two as the war in iraq dragged on he faced intense questioning from troops in two thousand. Four soldier asked rumsfeld why vehicle armor was still in short supply. Three years in this was his response. Only our army you might want or which many critics including human rights groups in a bipartisan. Senate committee have said rumsfeld should have faced criminal charges for decisions. That led to the abuse of detainees at the abu ghraib prison near baghdad and at the guantanamo bay detention camp jameel jaffer director of the night first amendment institute at columbia university and former aco. Deputy director tweeted quote. Rumsfeld gave the orders that resulted in the abuse and torture of hundreds of personnel. Us custody in afghanistan iraq and guantanamo. Bay this should be at the top of every obituary more than one. Hundred prisoners died in the course of interrogation investigations were haphazard at best but the military itself concluded that some of the prisoners were tortured to death for more. We're joined by andrew base of president and co founder of the quincy institute for responsible statecraft. He's a retired. Colonel and vietnam war veteran base richest professor emeritus of international relations and history at boston university and author of several books. His most recent book just out is titled after the apocalypse. America's role in a world transformed in may. He wrote a piece for the boston globe headlined. My son was killed in iraq. Fourteen years ago. who's responsible. We welcome you back to democracy now. Professor basic Why don't you start off by talking about the legacy of rumsfeld. The newspapers referring to him as the most influential defense secretary robert mcnamara. Back in the nineteen sixties. I think that's appropriate action. He was like mcnamara In a specific sense. I think that he brought to office. Rumsfeld brought to authors certain convictions. about how the pentagon needed to change And from day one he set out to implement that vision what rumsfeld didn't anticipate Was nine eleven. Its aftermath specifically the iraq war. And you're right. I think to describe him as the principal architect of that war. He attempted to fight it consistent with his reform vision. That is to say the expectation that that superior american technology would bring about a quick and decisive victory. He got that wrong. He got that wrong because of his misunderstanding of war and his inability to appreciate the historical cultural sociological religious elements of war. And therefore what was supposed to be a quick and decisive victory ended up being a protracted ugly disaster and that's why iraq needs to be the most important item inscribed on his his headstone a disaster. Which as you've said He was considered the most powerful defense secretary since mcnamara but once it became clear that the iraq war was waged under false pretenses. In other words there were no weapons of mass destruction unlike mcnamara who issued an apology in the documentary of fog of war a donald rumsfeld on the contrary was the least a apologetic and affirmed The fact that the us should have a gone into iraq and that any premature withdrawal would be a mistake. Well i you know. I can't pretend to know peer into his soul. He is clearly was a stubborn man in a proud man. And i think you know unwilling to confront his own failings which became manifest When we come. Two thousand six the end of two thousand and six. When president george w bush decided to fire him His failure by then had become evident to just about everybody other than rumsfeld perhaps His his his friend vice president. Cheney many many historical figures with the passage of time find their their reputation is revised perhaps improve perhaps You know subjected to greater criticism. I don. I don't expect that there's going to be any revision of donald rumsfeld's a reputation in the future. He was a catastrophic nucle- bad and failed defense secretary who radically misinterpreted the necessary response to nine eleven and therefore caused almost immeasurable damage to our country to iraq to to the persian gulf. More broadly. and. I don't think there's any way to disguise that. I wanted to go to that. I clip that. We played which is You go to war with the army you have if you could comment on that And also the fact that you like. So many in the united states and in iraq lost a loved one in iraq and what that means what role donald rumsfeld played in that but not just rumsfeld if you could talk with this focus on rumsfeld about the responsibility of the man. He worked for president..

"In is not knowable if force will be is but if it is to be used it could last six days six weeks. I doubt six months. I doubt six months. Who's telling you that. A war in iraq might last six months hussein. I'll go that long. I'm donald rumsfeld. You can take it from me. Try six days. Donald rumsfeld was also a master at unusually specific lies about the most consequential things that led to that war that ultimately cost hundreds of thousands of lives. He told ab abc news for example after the invasion when he asked how come the weapons of mass destruction that you guaranteed were there. How come. they haven't been found he insisted. Abc news that not only were there. Weapons of mass destruction in iraq. That we're going to be found. But he knew where they were. He said quote. We know where they are there in the area around to create and baghdad and east west south and north somewhat donald rumsfeld has died today at the age of eighty eight. He did not die at his home at mount misery which was the slave breaking site of the life changing and world changing torture of frederick douglass place that he bought his a weekend retreat while serving as defense secretary he died instead in new mexico at a ranch. She had their in house. And donald rumsfeld's death comes on a day with about five weeks worth of news in it otherwise. We're covering a lot of different breaking news stories tonight tonight. The washington post was first to report. Nbc news has confirmed that. A grand jury in manhattan has filed criminal indictments today against the company former president donald trump and its longtime chief financial officer ellen weisselberg the post and nbc are both citing people familiar with the indictments again. This means the indictments have been handed down by the grand jury. They are at this point sealed. Nbc reported earlier. Today that the indictments are expected to be unsealed at a court proceeding at roughly two. Pm eastern time tomorrow whereupon will find out exactly what the charges are and whereupon whereupon the defendant or defendants are expected to be in court to face those charges now. There is not an expectation at this point that former president trump himself is going to be hit with criminal charges tomorrow although that apparently remains a possibility for some theoretical potential. Superseding indictment coming after this one. I'm not sure. I totally understand the legal world common wisdom. That's there very well. May be a superseding indictment beyond the one that comes tomorrow. But we're going to chase that a little bit tonight and try to get some perspective on why that seems to be the prevailing wisdom about how this case against. The president's company is likely to unfold. We'll have much more on that ahead tonight. But like i said it is a remarkable newsday today today also brought these shocking news that the conviction of bill cosby was overturned. By pennsylvania's supreme court cosby had served more than two years in prison after he was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. In two thousand eighteen he will never serve another day of the three to ten year sentence. He had initially been given after the court overturned that conviction today they overturned it on the grounds that a previous pennsylvania prosecutor who happens to be these shambolic bazaar trump impeachment lawyer. Bruce castor bruce castor when he was serving as a prosecutor in pennsylvania had apparently given bill cosby an unwritten unofficial though apparently binding assurance that he wouldn't be prosecuted and on the basis of that the supreme court today overturns his ultimate prosecution and deemed that he cannot be tried on those charges again. A bizarre turn in one of the highest profile prosecutions of the metoo. Eric today and bill cosby is tonight out of prison in his home in suburban philadelphia and that arrives just in this in this world wind of news. I mean amid everything else going on. Don't forget that tomorrow is the last day of the term for the united states supreme court this year and that means two very important things. I there's two really big cases left to be decided one about dark money undisclosed money and politics and another that frankly could put the final nail in the coffin of the already gutted. Voting rights act based on an arizona. Voting case of those decisions are expected from the supreme court tomorrow. Election reform and voting rights advocates bracing. For what's expected to not be great news on either of those fronts but we shall see. The court has been full of surprises this year. So then the substance. Tomorrow's being the last day of the tour matters in terms of what they're going to tell us with these cases but tomorrow also matters because it is the last day of the term and if justice steven brier or any of the other eighty something year-old justices on the court are going to retire from the court pass. Precedent would suggest that tomorrow could be the day which we will get that announcement in the vast majority of modern supreme court retirements. They are announced to either take effect at the end of a supreme court term or they are announced at the close of a supreme court term. So if you are planning on this being the summer in which we get a supreme court vacancy and a senate fight over who to put on the court we will likely tomorrow is the day. We will most likely learn that news. It all happens at once joining us. Now is my friend ron suskind. He's a pulitzer prize. Winning journalist and the author of many tell all and award winning books about us presidential administrations three of his bestselling books the price of loyalty the one percent doctrine and the way of the world all featured donald rumsfeld as a these central. If not starring character. I know nobody else. Who knows more about donald rumsfeld than ron suskind ron. It's really nice to be here tonight. Thank you for joining us your so. I did not give any sort of a holistic look at defense secretary. Rumsfeld's legacy i turn to you for that. I think i'm i'm still quite red. Red eye in every sense of the word about his legacy with the iraq war. How do you think that we should look at his legacy today.

Paul revere paul bunyan's body to he's pitching at a to fifty eight earned run average and is just crushing home runs. It's unbelievable yes. Slugging percentage of one point zero four nine. Which is like he. He's over one. It's rare that anybody just even simply right if you if you see that. If he's playing just watch him that bad because there's a good chance he's going to crush the fucking ball and then if he's then you can watch impeach real. It's just yeah. There's there's a like a new york times article that said is there such thing as too much shohei otani and i don't think there is because we're talking about. This is the thing that i think we've talked about too. Is i love when we get these like. There's an athlete out there who's just fucking it up so hard core that everyone's like i don't know man. Everyone watched this until this person showed up. And we're something very historic and even like aaron boone on the yankees like What he's doing is he say. Quote borderline impossible.

They can do that. And if you're good at bat you can do that. But the combination is just makes this shit so freaky. Yeah hasn't been done in one hundred years.

Six innings pitched one earned run june eighteenth. Two home runs. June nineteenth homerun twentieth homerun twenty-first. They were off okay twenty-second. He had a bad day. Zero went over three twenty third one earned run nine strikeouts twenty-fourth off again like he should still hit a home run. Even though they were off twenty fifth homerun twenty six went one. For three twenty seven homerun twenty eighth homerun twenty-ninth two home runs. Yeah like what did he has ever been in his own like this. That as long as i've been passively paying attention to baseball so it's pretty dope. People aren't like pitching strikes to them. They're just like afraid of him and he's still doing his finding he's finding so he's got twenty eight. What's the pace to to fuck it up home in for a single season. I don't know. I don't i actually don't know what what his paces. Yeah i wish. I not his paces a lot. I don't think. I think if he was on pace for like over sixty people write ups but like just being on pace to lead the league in home runs well also. Pitching extremely effectively is unbelievable. He's right now. People say the odds on favorite to be the mvp and this kind of came out of nowhere like he wasn't supposed to even be the best player on his team this season. Yeah i mean yeah when you're doing things mike. Trout can't do. Then that. That's something. But i mean i think the hope was always that this was possible like when he came to to the. Us was that he's a two way player and in japan he was proving it but everyone again is always like well. Let's see what he can do in the majors and you know what japanese people not to play baseball.

"donald rumsfeld" Discussed on KHVH 830AM
"Georgia line and all your favorite artists. Come on the show with Scotty Be on NewsRadio, 8 30 K h V H. The passing of Donald Rumsfeld at 88. Going to jump in with network news coverage over the course of those years. It's interesting to look back and see all of that This video that you're looking at from a Republican convention. I want to bring Ari Fleischer, who is joining us now former press secretary for President George W. Bush and Fox News contributor Ari your thoughts as we look at this man and this life, Donald Rumsfeld. Lost today at the age of 88. I was very fond of Donald Rumsfeld. I knew him very well. We worked together on a lot during the bush years, and you know, Martha the first time I ever met him. It was so fascinating. It was during the transition. George Bush has just named Donald Rumsfeld to return as secretary defense. I got a phone call from a reporter at a Chicago newspaper who had audiotapes of Richard Nixon as president, speaking in the Oval officer ranting and raging racist statements made by Nixon. As young Donald Rumsfeld sat there. And the reporter wanted to know what Rumsfeld's reaction was. So I got the audio tapes. I had to sit down with the former secretary of defense. I had never met him before and play Nixon audiotapes for him. Ask him what he remembered. And I remember being scared. I was thinking Well, Rumsfeld not getting to the cabinet. Now. Is this story going to say? Why did this young man sit there and not object to the president? It was fascinating to watch Donald Rumsfeld look at himself through that lens of audio taste of some 30 years earlier. Then I got to work with them regularly on so much because it was administration. We had two wars at the time, and I worked closely with Donald Rumsfeld on much of the messaging and communications. Gonna miss him. He was a a ride, man, Sharp man. And a very enjoyable man. I'm just curious. What was his reaction after you played the tape for him? You know, he didn't remember them. And that was the thing he just said, you know? I didn't even know there was a recording system that could be said a lot about Richard Nixon. Yeah. Any of it. He didn't know. No, nobody knew. So he got to hear that voice for the first time. So as we're just watching his face, it was just seeing this. Look on himself about. I had no idea that was even in there. I had no idea I was on these recordings. And the substance of it. He didn't remember Nixon's rant. I suppose Nixon has a few of them. Yeah, but the story was a very fair story that came out. It wasn't a gotcha story, and he went on to be confirmed as Secretary of defense. Interesting to look at the photos that we just saw in Brett's piece of the first time that Donald Rumsfeld was the secretary of defense, and he was also chief of staff for President Ford and who is there with him, but Richard Cheney, Dick Cheney, and then you see them working together again in the second round in George W. Bush's Administration where he really did bring back a lot of people who had advised his father who had advised former presidents into his administration, All right. And let me reset the table. Little because I think many of your viewers may remember the last years of the Bush administration, perhaps not the first, but the 1st 23 years. George W. Bush was tremendously popular, and so was Donald Rumsfeld. The war in Afghanistan was going extremely well. Iraq people supported the Iraq war until we learned there were no weapons of mass destruction. So so much of what Donald Rumsfeld initially did was widely supported, and I remember he would hold news conferences virtually every afternoon during both wars and one day in the Oval Office. President Bush was kind of kidding. Donald Trump's fell and he said You've become so popular with this afternoon news conference is your afternoon teen idol. And everybody in the global kind of laughed the hell could this old guy to teen Idol, the afternoon matinee teen idol? But he really was he captured So much of America. People wanted to tune in to listen to his take on what was happening with the war in Afghanistan and the war in Iraq and at that time again They were largely successful military operations and largely supported by the American people. And Donald Rumsfeld was very highly sort of at that time. It started to unwind after Abu grave and we didn't find the weapons of mass destruction. People should remember. A good sense of what Donald Rumsfeld also delivered for our country. It's interesting to listen to the biographer, uh, out for Donald Rumsfeld, One of the biographies of Donald Rumsfeld Talk about You know the fact that he was prescient in that understanding of the threat that was posed by terrorism and that he wanted to stop it over there to prevent it from coming here. And, of course, that became just the harshest imaginable reality on September 11th. Yep. And look at how that endures. Look, Joe Biden just ordered a military operation against Syria and Iran. You know, the fact that we have a forward defence was largely set up in the early years of the Bush administration, and it's been used now reliably. By not only President Bush, but President Obama, President Trump and President Biden. Donald Rumsfeld helped engineer that all right. Thank you very much. Alright. Fleischer, former press secretary, of course, and Great to have you with us today. Karl Rove is also with us former deputy Chief of staff to President George W. Bush and he joins us now on the phone. Carl Donald Rumsfeld would have turned 89 on this July July 9th. Your thoughts on this news this afternoon. Well, what a remarkable and long career people forget. He was elected to Congress when he was 30 years old..
Taking Stock of the Boeing Crash and Iran Missile Attack
"So that was an interesting eighteen or so hours in the global markets. Wasn't it no sooner. Had we finished up an explainer on how the markets can price things in if if it knows those things are coming then something came that. The market's somehow were not expecting there was the missile attack last night they not really too who belligerent statement from President Trump is morning and somehow everything was fine. We've called the. Amy Myers Jaffe for some context on this. She is a longtime Middle East analyst. Also now a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations Amy Walkman program. Thank you for having me. Let's do a quick gut check. You heard this news last night. I'm sure you as as I and many other people check the futures market. What was your? What was your initial reaction? Well I think that it makes sense that the markets calmed down afterwards. Of course wars were were hoping for a peaceful outcome for conflict resolution. But I think the markets may be a little optimistic in the sense that there's a long road a Ho. Oh here on a very long stubborn conflict in the Middle East so maybe people are a little too optimistic. This is if I could if I could go to my Donald Donald Rumsfeld dictionary. This is the very definition of unknown unknowns right yes. The president was moderately diplomatic today. But there's so much yet to come There's a lot of water that needs to be crossed and I think the markets reflect that in the price of gold now of course. Gold is also strong because these were expecting a U. S. China trade deal and we're expecting a weaker dollar but in the end. I do think that that hefty gold price reflects the sentiment that we're not out of the woods yet talk to me about oil for a second. Would you kind of make sense that. It's down hard today. long-term though I know that all the analysts are saying long-term down for oil but my feeling is there still a lot of geopolitical risk to be had we still have tremendous unrest on the ground if the Iraqi population is unhappy with the way things go you know you could see oil. Workers decide that they're going to join the anti-government protesters protesters or if there's a breakdown in negotiations between the United States are ran in Iraq and the United States quote unquote. Okay gets kicked out. You could see sanctions on Iraq soil because Iraq has been doing these swaps with Iran these energy swaps with Iran. And that would be a logical next step if things break down or you condo by the fact that the United States is such a major producer of oil now that helps me from the point of view of worrying thing about the US economy if the price of oil goes way up there many states that benefit now because we have so many states that are producing the didn't used to the oil producing and of course our trade deficit isn't as badly hurt. The problem is you know you and I we might not take a road trip this summer. Summer oil prices are very high and also we know from past oil shocks that American. Stop buying cars when the price of gasoline is going up and of course that would be very bad for the economy because that's a big part of the GDP of the United States. Okay so short-to-medium-term. What are you watching? Well I'm watching sort of how it plays out of course in the Middle East. I think that's a very major risk. I want to see that the U. S. China trade deal comes forward and what form and then I think the markets you know The Eurasia group which is a geopolitical risk organization says the United States is the number one geopolitical risk in the world. Today so I do think the US election depending on which way it swings it could be a major feature in financial markets. So I think we have to watch that very closely.
"That was an interesting eighteen or so hours in the global markets wasn't it no sooner had we finished up an explainer on how the markets can price things in it if it knows those things are calm and then something came at the markets somehow we're not expecting there was a missile attack last night they may not really too belligerent statement from president from this morning and somehow everything was fine we've called Amy Myers Jaffe for some context on this she is a long time Middle East analyst also now a senior fellow at the council on foreign relations Amy walking program thank you for having me let's do a quick got check your this news last night I'm sure you as I and many other people check the futures market what was your what was your initial reaction well I think that it makes sense that the markets calm down afterwards of course were were hoping for a peaceful I'll come up for conflict resolution but I think the markets may be a little optimistic in the sense that there's a long row to hoe here on a very long and stubborn conflict in the Middle East so maybe people are a little too optimistic this is if I could if I could go to my Donald Rumsfeld dictionary this is the very definition of unknown unknowns right yes the president was moderately diplomatic today but there's so much yet to come there's a lot of water that needs to be crossed and I think the markets reflect that in the price of gold now course gold is also strong because we're expecting a US China trade deal and we're expecting a weaker dollar but in the end I do think that that hefty gold price art reflects the sentiment that we're not out of the woods yet talk to me about oil for a second would you kind of make sense it is down hard today long term now I know that all the analysts are saying long term down for oil but my feeling is there still a lot of geo political risks to be had we still have tremendous on rest on the ground if the Iraqi population is unhappy with the way things go you know you could see or workers decide that they're going to join the anti government protesters armed or if there's a breakdown in negotiations between the United States around in Iraq and the United States quote unquote gets kicked out you could see sanctions on Iraq's oil because Iraq has been doing these swaps with Iran these energy swaps with Iran and that would be in a logical next step of things break down are you called at all by the fact that the United States is such a major producer of oil now that helps me from the point of view of worrying about the US economy if the price of oil goes way up there many states the benefit now because we have so many states that are oil producing the didn't used to be oil producing and of course our trade deficit isn't as badly hurt the problem is you know you want a high we might not take a road trip this summer for oil prices are very high and also we know from past oil shocks that American stop buying cars when the price of gasoline is going up in the course that would be very bad for the economy because that's a big part of the GDP of the United States okay so short to medium term what are you watching well I'm more watching sort of how it plays out of course in the Middle East I think that's a very major risk I want to see on that that US China trade deal comes forward and and what form and then I think the markets you know the Eurasia group which is eight geopolitical risk organization says the United States is the number one geo political risk in the world today so I do think the U. S. selection depending on which way it swings could be a major feature in financial markets also I think we have to watch that very closely your age group for co founder Ian Bremmer question your marketplace morning report all the time Amy Meyers Jeffery she's at the council of foreign relations in New York Amy thanks a lot appreciate your time your thoughts thank you
Joseph Maguire, Acting DNI, Faced Congress after whistleblower report
"Yuvan of it to Benjamin Sunland if you the people who become household names of the impeachment drama has played out with the house vote now behind us we wanted to catch up with another central character from the very beginning a man who occupies at least for the moment one of the most critical perches in the US government our story begins late on Friday the thirteenth of September which is when Adam Schiff chairman of the house intelligence committee released a cryptic letter we're gonna let our co host Mary Louise Kelley pick it up from here the letter runs four pages on official stationery the big CEO of the intelligence committee on top it is signed sincerely Adam B. Schiff it is addressed to this guy now here I am sitting before you as the acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire that's him testifying before Congress end of September he had received chefs letter which contained very few details but which marked the first public mention of the whistle blower complaint the letter accused McGuire of improperly withholding that complaint from Congress and subpoenaed him to testify now we heard McGuire say there he's the acting director of national intelligence and talk about timing threat to acquire what was your first day on the job my first day on the job was Friday the sixteenth of August and I think I set a new record in the administration for the anticipated before yeah yeah yeah that you had a heck of a first week didn't have much going for the Sir the questions there from New York Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney driving home the point that McGwire took over the job of running U. S. intelligence just four days after the whistle blower a US intelligence official filed the complaint McGuire suggested this was not the way he did version the job going either way Sir if I may my life would have been a heck of a lot simpler without becoming the most famous man in the United don't have settled debatable whether Joseph acquire was then or now the most famous man in the United States but if it felt that way it speaks to the extraordinarily awkward position the acting di and I found himself in caught between a White House looking for loyalty and lawmakers looking for answers since his appearance before the house intelligence committee McGuire has kept an exceedingly low profile no interviews we asked for one we're gonna spend these next minutes looking closely at the DNR job whether it matters that we are now past four months and counting with an acting director at the home the longest period without a Senate confirmed permanent leader of US intelligence since the job was created fifteen years ago today I'm asking Congress to create the position of the national intelligence director George W. bush in the White House rose garden two thousand four over in Congress they were listening we were breaking for the August recess and not I decided to call our committee back into session and we began the hearings Republicans Susan Collins of Maine she chaired the Senate governmental affairs committee I felt a sense of urgency because this was already two thousand for the terrorists attacks had happened on nine eleven two thousand one and the nine eleven commission had just released its final report it zoomed in on a failure to connect the dots that the CIA the FBI and others weren't sharing what they knew the report had ideas for how to prevent anything like nine eleven from ever happening again the central crowning recommendation a new position someone who could force intelligence agencies to talk to each other so Collins and Joe Lieberman then the committee's top Democrat got to work I remember you couldn't figure out what you were going to call this position to start with it was the need for a little while I was going to say and for awhile it was the Ned and I remember Joe Lieberman saying we can't call it the no that sounds too much like the net yeah it has to be the D. N. I. doesn't sound in power exactly what to call it was the least of their problems senator Collins told me the turf battles were in once it was vehemently opposed by not only the CIA but particularly the secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld because his department was going to lose considerable power over the intelligence community's budget which was funneled through the department of defense but as you heard his boss President Bush was on board and in December two thousand four Congress passed the most sweeping intelligence overhaul in nearly sixty years by the following February bush was announcing his pick for the nation's first director of national intelligence vesting these are stories in a single official who reports directly to me will make our intelligence efforts better coordinated more efficient and more effective the director of the CIA will report to John John was John Negroponte at the time he was US ambassador to Iraq I tracked him down here in Washington this week and asked about that last bit of the president's remarks that the head of the CIA would report to him that's correct there were gathering no it did but you know it it it took some socializing and some explain simply socialite water like a devoted some water had to go under the bridge in the fifteen years that that water's been flowing under the bridge the office of the D. N. I. has expanded to a staff of thousands the exact numbers classified as we can quarters building is gone up in northern Virginia so has all this worked has having India nine made us safer again the sponsor of the original legislation senator Collins I do believe that it has been successful but it's not perfect I I do hear a criticism bet they demand nice office has grown too big too bureaucratic so I'm not saying that we got it perfect leave right but compared to where we were we have come and the norm this way I heard a similar view from Mike moral who was among those who required some socializing two years Negroponte's word moral serve more than thirty years at the CIA he was president bush's briefer on nine eleven and ended up the agency's deputy director moral opposed creating video and I thought the more obvious solution was to bulk up the authorities of the head of the CIA botch I evolved over time significantly so by the time I left government in two thousand thirteen the last week that I was deputy director I actually got in my car and drove to Capitol Hill and met with senator Collins and senator Lieberman it actually thank them so I was I started out in one place and I ended up in a completely different place pressed as to why morale who now hosts the intelligence matters podcast pointed to his former gang delivering the president's daily brief in the old days he says it was pretty much only CIA material that made the cut whereas now with a D. and I overseeing everything the president's likely to hear from shore the CIA but also the state department's intelligence branch or the Pentagon's defense intelligence agency the deer so when CIA wrote a piece say on a China issue and de I a had a different view it would actually say at the bottom of the page de I a has a different view here it is here's why they have a different view and here Mister president is why this matters to you this difference matters to you so and and I think that makes for better intelligence support for the president John Negroponte the original GNI has mixed feelings about the job he once held here we are fifteen years later mmhm as an experiment has it worked I would say it hasn't failed I'm not sure it's worked fully I think it's still a work in progress on the positive side ambassador Negroponte points to changes he helped put in motion such as integrating the F. B. I. more closely into the broader intelligence community then he pauses and adds mistakes still get made obviously we see that from the inspector general's report just now with respect Carter page and all that I was an egregious seems to have been an egregious mistake of some kind which shows that those problems of coordination don't just go away because you say they should the reference there to the DOJ inspector general who just last week delivered a report documenting all kinds of errors in the F. B. I.'s application to surveil one time trump campaign aide Carter page now can we draw a direct line between the D. and I roll and the F. B. I. **** ups know what is fact is last week so president trump tweeting the FBI is quote badly broken which brings us back up to this moment the president attacking what he has come to call the deep state the house voting to impeach the president following an inquiry originally put in motion by a US intelligence community whistle blower the usual array of national security threats on the radar from Iran to China to North Korea and no sign of a nomination for the top job in US intelligence it is definitely a problem that I had the president has not nominated a permanent Senate confirmed Deanna Republican senator Susan Collins if the people in the intelligence community do not know whether the acting D. N. night is going to be there next week they are going to be less responsive to his concerns to his directives and bad is a problem so I would urge the president to make a choice my put her argument to someone with firsthand experience Michael moral can I was acting director of CIA twice so I know what I'm talking about here you don't feel as empowered as you would if you are Senate confirmed because you know you're not gonna be there that long just how awkward position then does Joseph McGuire find himself in four months and four days after being named acting director of national intelligence world points out that requires a navy Vice Admiral thirty six years in uniform this is a guy has actually been shot at right in combat this is a guy who's who's injured a lot but I think what he's learning is that the political fire is often more challenging than actual weapons fire navigating impeachment era Donald Trump dominated Washington in other words it's a different game morale as I hope he's learning

"I did not think it was a great movie. I thought it was a pretty good movie with great performance, those performances. I mean, Vail, I wasn't crazy though. But the other thing though, I did not like Steve Carell is Donald Rumsfeld. I just didn't think he's like him. But it seemed like an casting choice. It just didn't feel I bought it. And I and I'm resistant to Steve Carell because I think he's just over exposed. I didn't that that jarred. Not that I expect everybody to be imitating the way that may bail is imitating Cheney. I don't think everybody, you know, you don't have to impersonate someone to to do a good performance. But I don't know this this this movie did not work for me at all except for the bail. The bail thing is. And he well, you know, she was fine. But again, I think the whole setting her up is Lady Macbeth, you know, that kind of they lean so far into these things. This down were they quoting MacBeth in bed or was it? Richard the third. I thought it was the third. But when I googled it. I couldn't even find that quote. So maybe it wasn't. There is a there's a Shakespearean. I he served I wife and leader well or something like that. And if anybody can call in or Email. That restaurant might have even been his own. So because. Therion? Yeah. I sure couldn't find it anywhere. Shakespearean ready to? Exactly. But yeah, he just leans and there was a clever sequence. I must say. That my other critique of the film, it doesn't know when to end it just keeps kind of coming back. You one of those endings? I'm not gonna go any further than that. There isn't ending the really clever. Very funny. Really, really? And so there I don't wanna say there aren't moments that that hit. But I dunno it does portray him as a caring father. Yes. And that is true. So that is true. So I think good and great performances amazing. That performance is really one for the ages Oscar worthy for sure he'll be nominated. Yeah.

"Were pushing the city it's all your favorites brooke hits a handful of republican defense officials from the reagan and george w bush administration people like richard perle pablo fluids but the really big leaders were these kind of elbow patched academe ix mostly based in washington dc and new york and they didn't really have a constituency but after the nineteen ninety six election newt gingrich's kind of the party leader he's really desperate for some way to show that the gop is still the party of ideas and i think he was less concerned with the policy implications of those ideas than whether they were ideas enough to kind of rebrand the party as the brilliant intelligent party so here's this ideology out of the academy and it works great as well politically because at this point saddam hussein is being very difficult with the united states about weapons inspections and he's kind of like thumbing his nose at the americans left and right which we know now was because he feared domestic unrest and felt like he needed to make a big show of toughness in order to avoid a coup but the republicans were able to seize on this to embarrass bill clinton and to say you know look at this dictator is humiliating our country and this was in the midst of the lewinsky scandal so he's particularly vulnerable right that is committed to peace in the region which i think to a lot of people at the time probably including republican lawmakers including the clinton white house this kind of just look like an empty gesture for the neo conservatives who actually wrote the act this was the culmination of sending they had fought for for years we all know what happens next george w bush is elected and he brings a stable of neo cons and fellow travelers like paul wolfowitz and donald rumsfeld and dick cheney into his administration then comes nine eleven and then so if you're george w bush and this thing happens you probably respond the way that most of us do which is to be just totally baffled neo conservatism presents a fully formed complete footnoted ideology and worldview for understanding the september eleven attack that's the reason that this happened the reason that there's extremism really anywhere.

"Different approach that to some is surprises donald rumsfeld this was last night on fox question who is a bigger threat to us russia or china it depends on whose in the saddle in those countries in which one is more likely to make a mistake my personal view is that the fact that trump i don't know president trump i've never met him that i can recall but i certainly think that his demeanor in the presidency is a deterrent for those countries he's not tucked the end and worried and cautious he's a bold leader and he speaks his mind it seems to me that sitting in the kremlin in in in beijing seeing that are probably respectful of the fact that is not in their interest to engage in things that are decision advantages to the united states this is big rumsfeld admits he's never met trump rumsfeld many would think would be of the crowd that would condemn trump because he's not on establishment guy he doesn't speak and diplomatic ways but it's just the exact opposite bold demeanor not talk dan were read carshield's he's boldy speaks his mind than he leaves no doubt where the united states they hands like mike pompeyo who is the cia director some somebody in the media that tried to get him to admit that trump's tweets you're a problem and pompeyo said no trump's tweets have actually helped us learn vital intelligence what what what are you read while trump will tweet something out about somebody is wackos around the world and now react to it and when they react we learn more about them than we knew i'm telling you trump has got that town turned upside down in a lot of ways of our people on able to deal with that.
