Lindsey Graham Defends Horseback Border Patrol Agents, Calls for 'Incompetent' Mayorkas to Resign

"You know they put. They put fences around capital but the borders wide open to the tune of two million criminal immigrants to this invasion thus far and as democrats report from the border but twenty five percent of them have the wuhan and they're not tested and they're just laughing at you knuckleheads putting on your man. Who put your mask ron. I'm going to the supermarket really a. Why don't you pretend the supermarkets the emmys or barack hussein's party or the border senator. Lindsey graham was talking with show favourite martha mccallum yesterday about the disasters of this administration. Play that clip. Give me real quick quick. So all i can say is what biden has done is he surrendered the border to drug cartels cody's and human smugglers. He surrendered afghanistan to terrace. The taliban and al qaeda in a major terrorist attack is gonna come our way because between the combination of allowing afghanistan to fall back into terrorist hands and have a completely open and broken border here in the united states is just a matter of time that the terrorists come through that border to kill a bunch of us. And here's what. I want to say to the american people. The man on horseback is there to protect your family. The people rushing our border have put us all under siege. And i think the most inhumane things going on right now in america is that the men and women of the border patrol of been completely abandoned. Them god's scapegoat and treated like dirt by elected officials in the democratic party and this administration. So i'm not unhappy. I am pissed secretary. Marcus needs to resign. He's completely incompetent. The border is not closed. It has been surrendered. A man senator. Lindsey graham and bali needs if if if the democrats have the lord and the constitution and the love of america may orcas would be out. He's not incompetent. He's doing what he's being ordered to do. It's you got gotta look up the chain. The handful of people controlling those strings on biden's ira- ira- iraq. You could practically his job moving. They need a little more.

The Taliban Must Deal With These Leaders to Avoid Civil War

"Jona goldberg wrote a great book. A couple years ago we talked about the big man theory. In every failed state big man emerges usually the guy with the most guns skinny teenagers and maybe out of that state grows. Do you expect a civil war in afghanistan admiral after a period of time when these tribes fall back to what these tribes have always done which fight each other when they don't fight the west certainly. That's the long in unfortunate history of afghanistan. The taliban are still you know two three weeks into this thing playing their version of taliban two point oh. I saw some shots yesterday of connie the minister of the interior. Who's who has between five and ten million dollar bounty on his head depending on who you talk to a pure terrorist. A dark figure yet. He's walking around kabul effectively handing out candy in the streets. He's being kind and charming and smiling. That's kind of the face of the taliban at the moment if they keep that up. I think they've got a shot at avoiding of major breakdown if they revert to their old practices. It's civil war right around the corner. Because the northern alliance's that big trips to the north. They don't want to be ruled by the pashtoons in the south Unfortunately i would suspect. That is the future of afghanistan. we ought to care for the reasons we just talked about you. Which are that leads to ungoverned spaces that leads to the rise of al qaeda that provides safehaven to slavic state That's what we need to avoid being surprised on all the more reason that we maintain an intelligence capability in afghanistan. As difficult as. that's going to be.

How Does Al Qaeda Compare to Other Terrorist Organizations?

"Don't have time to share the knowledge. You've accumulated in over a decade tracking this stuff. But i i want to be a value to those that. Have an interest especially given the decision in In kabul with regards to surrendering afghanistan. Talk to us. Give it a little bit of clarity on the biggest moving parts of the threat environment. Explain to us the difference. The relationship and the competing interests of al-qaeda. So where's al qaeda to day. And how it compares with isis and this isis k. And then where does the taliban fit in. Well it will leave. The shia will leave new shrine and iran for a second told us about the three big pieces of of of suny terrorism today. Yeah absolutely. I'm gonna just take a real quick second to take a broad look at this. When president biden said the threat has basically metastasized and spread to other areas. He's absolutely greg. This is the failure of our efforts. Post nine eleven. Because pre-nine eleven the taliban the taliban hosted al qaeda and that was the main base for al-qaeda that's where they operated openly and ran training camps and whatnot and the operated cellular level. Now it's spread out. And there's these insurgencies are the lifeblood of the jihad. They use this the safe haven that exist pre-nine eleven in afghanistan afghanistan today to take the fight to to they want to establish their local emirates. Build a caliph it and then take the fight to watch. That's all part of their strategy today. Today that's threat has metastasized across the globe. But that is the reason to surrender afghanistan and in afghanistan today now the taliban greens the country l. Qaeda is it's primarily al-qaeda played a major role in the taliban offensive. It's not advertised. But i i have to go into detail and spend do conversation on how al qaeda played a major role in this offensive behind the scenes. You'll just have to take my so so so. This is very important that al qaeda was was an important part of the taliban recapturing afghanistan. That's what you're saying. Well yeah absolutely. The misconception about al qaeda and even the islamic state is that there are solely focused on conducting attacks here in the united states. That's a tactic. that's something they hope to do. Something they wanna do to to break our will punish us. But how did they achieve that. At that by gathering recruits training because remember the real goes established global galvin.

A religion of peace and saying these attacks had nothing to do with jihad and nothing to do with islam. That was a lie that he maintain all through his eight years in office.

Taliban Announces Formation of New Afghan Government

"The taliban announced a new government in afghanistan. that's not likely to get a lot of support from western nations. It does not include any women or members from the last afghan government's leadership instead. This new interim government is stacked with taliban veterans who were in charge of the hardline government. Twenty years ago. Several of them are listed by the us and united nations as global terrorists. For example. the key post of interior minister was given to a man. Who's on the fbi's most wanted list. He led a network. That's blamed for many deadly attacks and kidnappings and he's believed is still holding at least one american hostage besides him. Other cabinet members used to be inmates at guantanamo detention camp and at least one of the leaders is said to have ties to the al qaeda terror group that was responsible for the attacks on nine eleven. The taliban says these appointments are temporary but they have not said how long the last who is going to take over next or if there might be elections for now. The taliban is also urging foreign diplomats embassies consulates and humanitarian organisations to come back to afghanistan all western nations left when. Us troops withdrew last month. The us and other countries also froze afghanistan's funding. That's desperately needed as much as eighty percent of the country's budget comes from the international community but global leaders in lenders say they're waiting to see how the taliban will treat the opposition women and minorities before they send money

But but jim kalki normalize relations with the taliban. Here's the problem with trying to do that. Is is what you're doing is empowering and legitimizing them and what that will do is speed the the degree to which they will become a threat their relationship with al qaeda and the network and as you know the connie were were the people that originally insisted that the taliban invite bin laden to come to afghanistan they they span afghanistan and pakistan. They have a relationship with pakistani intelligence services these are or religious zealots and the taliban may not have the perfect relationship with it but they can't give them up explain why al qaeda and connie have to go back to afghanistan have to reconstitute their basis. Why is the twentieth anniversary. September the eleventh so important. What is there that goal right now and this gets to the key point. Why the administration's course of action is so incredibly dangerous that it is it is it is actually the beginning of the most dangerous phase of this crisis not the end of the crisis but the start of the really big scary crisis because once alka and they've already done this the day they touch back on afghan soil.

"al qaeda" Discussed on WBUR

"Known as Al Qaeda, plotted the attacks from Afghanistan. Michael says a few years before 9 11 happened. The U. S was already concerned about Al Qaeda is growing presence and its links to the Taliban, which had been in power there for five years. But this terror strike was a significant political turning point. There was very much a sense that the United States had to find a way to protect itself. And it involved muscular response to the attack that 9 11 represented. But it also involved recalibration in the rethinking of how the United States worked overseas. With allies and in response to threats, And so if we take a look at the last 20 years of American foreign policy, so much of it is through the prism. Of what First President George Bush called the Global War on terrorism George W. Bush. She was only a few months into his first term when it happened. So what was his strategy for responding to the attack? The decision was made to issue the ultimatum to the Taliban government in Kabul at the time turnover. Everybody in Al Qaeda who's in the country and allow us to verify that there are no more terrorist spaces in Afghanistan, or there will be consequences. Taliban turned that down. And the United States moved truly very swiftly into military action against the Taliban government so that by sometime in December of 2000 and one Taliban government had fallen U. S action in Afghanistan had widespread support across America, even across political divides, and much further than that in our congress in our public Very much a sense that it was essential that the United States respond quickly, effectively and successfully, and certainly, by the end of 2000 and one and it's going into 2000 and two there was a sense that the mission had been carried out successfully. And there was plenty to support that view. The Taliban have been toppled. Some of its leaders fled to Pakistan. Al Qaeda was weakened..

Afghanistan is it's re- echelon it's it's retreat area in a war with india. It has been friendly. The isi the military have been friendly with the taliban. Today's events in afghanistan can do nothing but heightened tensions between the two nuclear nations of pakistan and india correct. Absolutely they are already if you read a pakistani and indian media presence. That's what you see and you know. We work on on projecting into the future within weeks or months if the international community led by the united states led by this administration. Don't do anything significant to address what happened and frankly set for the first time. I don't know what to advise because mistakes are so large that i don't know how we're gonna handle but if we don't address the situation between india and pakistan we are having to something much larger and bigger than any conflict in the middle east. And let's look at the map projecting into the future. Let let let's look at what this administration has already said its priorities.

His priorities are as the new secretary of defense into real ranks of racist and extremist and to create a climate where everyone fit and willing as the opportunity to serve this country with dignity. The job of the department of defense is to keep america safe from our enemies. But we can't do that if some of those enemies lie within our own ranks so looking for enemies and the us military as opposed to enemies abroad Doesn't that make the Theo theo kratz in islamabad intact. Crown and now in kabul smile dr faddis. Oh a fairly long white smile professor. You and i know more than many around us. Because you talk to the military for many years and i did for twenty years. We know very well that there is no so-called deep racism embedded in. Us armed forces. I mean the american forces are the ones who defeated. fascism Landed in normandy and when through and of course the italian fascist japanese militaristic This this accusation to The forces of the united states that they are harboring Racist and other extremist should have been done doing the obama years against jihadist. I guess those who try to penetrate major hasan's of this world those who penetrate our our forces in our basis. So i am deeply disturbed by the fact that the energy that we should have to uproot radical ideologies like jihadism has been transformed into into a image that really doesn't exist in reality and that is very very very bad for us The book is future jihad.

You can make a great point that letting those al-qaeda leaders go back and become part of the power base again against the United States is against US national security and should start a counterintelligence investigation. Right. You can make the case in line to the American public about the Iran deal and then put those two together. And then put those two together what nation is a bigger sponsor of international terrorism than Iran, and the reason that you don't and the reason the FBI doesn't do that as we explained earlier, and the reason there wasn't a call for it for the president for Obama was because the president himself gets to decide what is national security, and what is best for the United States.

You know, the whole free Syrian army which is basically like fifteen thousand militia groups of radical Islamists. So after we decided decided to arm the Jihadist to overthrow bazaar I'll Assad well, it turned out to Charlotte side had some tricks up his sleeve, and he not, you know, he has an army, so he used his army to fight against them. He also solicited help from the Iranians and from Hezbollah and he brought in the Russians Vladimir Putin said, no, no, no, I'll come help you out. We're not gonna let this fuck and army of jihadists takeover Syria. Ladimir Putin. And the Russians have also had some problems with the jihadists and from their perspective, I think because. Vladimir Putin said as much when he was being interviewed by Oliver Stone. He basically looks at like al-qaeda works for America. That's that's his point of view. I mean, he basically said that when he was being interviewed by Oliver Stone, he was just like, look everywhere. Al Qaeda is they're always fighting the war that America wants to fight. So Al Qaeda was fighting against the Soviets in Afghanistan. If you remember all the way back al-qaeda and the Soviets, they don't have a good track record, right? So the Russians don't get along with bin Laden as they were the ones occupying Afghantistan at the time. And we supported this pretty Al Qaeda, but it was the key figures of some bin Laden cleaned Shaykh, Muhammad, the Mujuhedeen in Afghanistan, right? So we supported them and they were fighting that war. And as far as Amir Putin's concerned, it's the same. God damn thing that's going on in Syria right now.

"Deal with the challenge of rising hostile states. Ultimately, all kind of manage to stabilize the American-led international order without accomplishing any of its specific objectives that itself wanted. It helped other people, but not self right. But I think if the fundamental question that we started out this episode with was has all kind of one, that's a no right. You don't win a war by getting someone else to be successful and you're destroyed. That's that's not the definition of winning any way shape or force. So maybe there's two things right? There's did the nine eleven attacks work. I think. Yes. Did al-qaeda win in the sense of getting what they ultimately wanted? Absolutely not, but you can put it this way like in the middle of war. For example, if you drop bombs on things, you didn't hit exactly what you wanted, but you still took out some tanks and some basis or whatever. Right. You're gonna be fine with that. Tactically speaking, you still have you still did something right, al-qaeda in this case, you know they didn't hit exactly what they wanted in terms of the strategy, but they still did a lot of damn it right to themselves though, but we'll sure I mean the US economy literally in quarter two just had like its strongest growth in four years. So we're not even bleeding economically like, yes, we spent a lot of money on these wars, but we're back to pre recession levels of like US advocated. Actually, there's. There's is pretty compelling case from some scholars that the Iraq war played a significant role in causing the great recession. But before we get into, I'm not thinking about it. For that one of give them credit for not yet not gonna. Give them credit. I'm gonna. I'm gonna, say like credit. Default swaps would housing crisis. Maybe a little more than bin Laden would what's clear about this is that there's still a lot of history left to play out and as the famous potentially apocryphal quote from Deng Xiaoping on the French revolution was asking whether it's a mistake. He said, it's still too early to tell same thing, maybe true about the nine eleven attacks only seventeen years later we're going to break afterwards.

"So that strikes me as very strong case that the attacks worked and Okita one, but Jen, you have a different take that came up before. We were planning the episode. Talk to me while you think they did not win, right. So if you actually look at the point of the attacks, right, we talked about it wasn't just to provoke this mass military tack or to provoke the United States to become release Lama phobic, right? They had explicit stated strategic goals. They were clear on this starting nineteen ninety eight when they declared officially, they issued a letter declaring jihad on America signed by just bin Laden. But why hurry at a whole bunch of other kind of jihad leaders, the issue this ruling saying it is incumbent upon every Muslim to fight against America intil. Specifically the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem is liberated until the holy mosque in mecca is liberated from their grip and until their armies withdraw from the land of Islam, right? It wasn't. We don't want you to be like meddling and having a strong, you know, deep water navy in China, right? It wasn't saying we want NATO to collapse. We want the US back from the Liberal International order, right? It wasn't saying we want the US economy collapse just for its own sake. It was specifically saying we want the US to stop supporting dictators in Saudi Arabia, which is what they mean and they're talking about controlling mecca. So so they're really explicit that was nineteen ninety eight right? Right after nine eleven couple years after nine eleven over and over. They explicitly say America Americans, if you want this bloodshed to stop, if you want this war to stop, if you want this jihad against you to stop, then get out of these specific Lantz get out of Muslim lands, get out of the Arabian peninsula. Stop supporting our. Staters. They said, hey, why don't you tax Weeden America? Did you ever ask yourself that why we're not attacking Sweden? It's because we're attacking us specifically because you were the ones who are doing this in Muslim lands, you are killing Muslims, you were supporting, you know, all of these dictators now, in some cases they were correct. We were doing that in some cases, they just wildly misread history and said that we're killing Muslims, especially in places where we were literally at war to protect Muslims in some cases. But the point is they had very explicit specific goals and they have not accomplished any of those. Let's drill into that point because as much as Alex, we're just talking about the f. kenniston war being quagmire. That's cost a lot of money in the US losing that were was devastating for all of not only did they not accomplish their goals of toppling various different to cater ships and replacing them with a with a theocracy or even forcing the US to stop backing those countries, which is the first step towards that. They got crushed. Enough ghanistan Osama bin Laden is dead. The organization is far weaker in its home base in the Afghanistan Pakistan region than it was before. Drone strikes have killed, huge numbers of their leaders and personnel. Like it seems like not only did they fail, but the the American reaction succeeded in weakening. I'll Qaeda's organization, right? And we are actually now literally today way more supportive of the government in Saudi Arabia than we have been in decades. Let's focus on that for a second. Why do they hate American support for the Saudis in the election so much because since the nineteen seventies the nineteen eighties, they have literally these groups that all kind of eventually came together to be Al Qaeda have been fighting against the government. So I'm an hurry who is the current leader of al-qaeda who was number two and then Lodden was killed and he took over his job. He has been fighting to topple the government and install an Islamic state essentially as his government for. Basically his entire adult life. He was imprisoned in his twenties. He was tortured. He has been doing this forever. And what happened in specifically Egyptian cases really telling for how it shaped Qaeda's views going forward, especially towards America..

"Welcome to worldly part of the vox media podcast network. It's me that Beecham with Jen Williams and outward. Hi everybody. So this week is you probably know was the seventeenth anniversary of the nine eleven attacks. There's been a ton of coverage and a lot of it's been very good, but we really thought a lot about this one articles in foreign policy that looked back at what's happened since the attacks came to a surprising conclusion, al-qaeda one. When we started talking about it ourselves, we found that we can disagree both with the article and with each other. So we thought that we'd spend the episode laying out the case for both sides of the argument that Al Qaeda got what it wanted out at the attacks and the attacks didn't accomplish their objectives that they didn't work. Now, let's sort of some basic background about this gives a quick refresh on what's going on with and how they were thinking about these attacks. So Al Qaeda when they launched the nine eleven attacks the entire goal and their entire strategy kind of in general was to attack the United States and basically make the cost of US support for dictators and US involvement in general in the Middle East so high that we would eventually decide to pull out and stop supporting these dictators. Right? So they had this strategies the near enemy versus the far enemy. And basically the United States is the far enemy they wanted to attack. Us first because we back all these dictators in the Middle East, they wanna topple those dictators so right and replace them with an Islamic state. Right, exactly. And so you know, Saudi Arabia, Egypt all over the place, and they realize basically over the years, they couldn't really do that while the US was still backing these groups by the US was still backing these governments. So the idea was okay. Well, then we'll convince the United States stop backing these governments, right? So then they'll be less powerful than we can topple these governments and to do that. They decided to carry out the nine eleven attack right and understood nine eleven's role in all of this. You have to understand their strategy for making the cost too high for the United States. So Alex, what was the what was the immediate intent of the attacks? Like? What did they want the United States to do afterwards or want to happen to the United States? Because the goal isn't just kill three thousand people in America will leave, which obviously didn't happen. There was more thought into it than that. Right. Why think one of the grander goals here was to cause almost an internal implosion of the United States to lead us to. Over extend to think too much about terrorism to spend too much money trying to defeat terrorism throughout the world on on causing an internal. They're trying to create a nervous breakdown in the United States. And if you look at what's happened since nine eleven. And this is the argument in these al-qaeda one pieces that vision came to fruition, right, right. I mean, well, let's look at what happened after nine. Eleven, right. First of all, we went into Afghanistan like the the next month knocked-over two thousand one. We fought there. We thought we were just gonna kick out Al Qaeda and the Taliban, and we'll go after bin Laden. And then we didn't think we would stay there too long. And it's been seventeen years since we've been there. We also started a war in Iraq, which was we use nine eleven is a pretext. We are now in multiple countries around the world Amalia Libya Pakistan Yemen just so many western Africa so many places right now to defeat terrorism and this is a massive over extension. I mean, obviously it's just a couple hundred troops elsewhere, but. That takes time and attention and resources away from a whole bunch of other issues we could be working on and just putting it out there when you listen to Donald Trump is he kinda hits on the steam, right? We've just been everywhere for so long. Why haven't we been focusing on the United States mostly and frankly, he's his kind of comes out of the what happened after nine. Eleven, we'll. The Trump point is a good one because it will Strates the more subtle and clever part of the strategy..
