Still we should note Washington. DC has also seen a huge show of force military police law enforcement officers from several federal agencies were. Were patrolling the city yesterday. A senior defense official told the AP At least twenty two hundred guard members were on the streets at the same time in FBI plane army, surveillance, plane and police helicopter were watching protesters from the air. Remember president trump has been talking about as he words it dominating the streets all week, so he's followed through on that promise, but it seems not everyone at the Pentagon is happy about that. Defense Secretary Mark Esperer told reporters. He does not want to use military forces for law enforcement. He said active duty troops should only be. Be Used in the most urgent and dire of situations, and he said that's not what's happening right now.

"In the winter of nineteen seventy six the six million dollar man. Tv show was filming in a haunted house in Long Beach. California when a crew member went to move a garish looking dummy to a different spot. The dummies arm broke off at the elbow. It was then that the crew member noticed the end of a human bone. Sticking out of the truncated limb. This wasn't a mannequin. This was elmer mccurdy a career criminal who died sixty five years earlier in Oklahoma. My Name's Moxy. And this is your brain on facts as forensic science slash true crime slash weird history buff of the first order. I almost didn't include mccurdy in today's episode of well-traveled corpses. Because his story makes all of these lists. But you know me. I like to be thorough. Elmer mccurdy was born January. First eighteen eighty two an unwed mother and adopted by his uncle and aunt. The first twenty years of his life were fairly unremarkable until a string of personal losses led him to say screw it. I'm ago Robson. Trains a brief stint in the army. Seen him trained to use nitroglycerine for demolition and he decided to blend the two careers the trouble was he tended to be heavy handed with the explosives once costing his gang ninety percent of the money in a safe he blew their remaining ten percent that they did get was in coins. That were melted together. Mccurdy's final robbery took place on October. Fourth Nineteen Eleven Niro Keys Oklahoma. When mccurdy and his men mistakenly stopped a passenger train instead of the one carrying four hundred thousand dollars that they were after the men were only able to steal about forty six dollars from the mail clerk some whiskey a pistol and the train conductors. Watch a newspaper account of the robbery called it quote. One of the smallest in the history of train robbery even still a two thousand dollar bounty was put on mccurdy and someone gave him up in the wee hours of October seventh. Apostasy of sheriff's tracked mccurdy to a Hacia using bloodhounds. Gunfire was exchanged for over an hour and in the end. Mccurdy was shot in the chest and killed mccurdy. Spotty was subsequently taken to the Johnson funeral home in Husk Oklahoma where it went on claimed Joseph Johnson the owner and undertaker embalmed body with an arsenic based preservative and stored it in the back of the funeral home refusing to bury the body or release it until he had been paid for his services. Johnson then decided if he was going to get any money out of this situation. He'd have to be more proactive. He dressed the corpse up in street. Clothes place to rifle and mccurdy's hands and stood up in the corner of the funeral home for a nickel apiece. Visitors could see the bandit who wouldn't give up. Mccurdy became a popular attraction at the funeral home and also drew the attention of carnival. Promoters though Johnson refused numerous offers to buy the mummified body in nineteen sixteen a man claiming to be elmer mccurdy's long lost brother got permission from the sheriff to take custody of the body and ship it to San Francisco for a proper burial. The following day Johnson released the body to this man and an accomplice who then put it on a train bound for Arkansas City Kansas. Then were in fact. James and Charles Patterson owners of the Great Patterson Carnival shows where mccurdy's corpse would be featured until nineteen twenty two when Paterson sold his operation to Louis. Sonny Sonny use mccurdy's corpse in his Traveling Museum of crime show which featured wax replicas famous outlaws such as Bill Doolan and Jesse James in Nineteen Twenty eight. The corpse was part of the official sideshow that accompanied the Trans American footrace. In thirty three it was acquired for a time. By director Duane Esper- to promote his exploitation film narcotic with an exclamation point in a very William Castle style move. The corpse was placed in the lobby of the theater as a dead dope. Fiend by this time some twenty two years after death mccurdy's body had become fide. The skin was hard and the body had shriveled to the size of a child. Esperer claims that this deterioration was proof of the danger of drunks. Mccurdy's corpse would bounce between warehouses and movie sets for the next four decades damage from mishandling. Meant that the corpse was no longer all that lifelike which is how it found. Its Way to the left in the dark funhouse at the Pike in Long Beach. After it was discovered that he wasn't a mannequin mccurdy was sent to the La Coroner by this time. The body was essentially petrified and had been covered in wax and layers of paint. It weighed about fifty pounds or twenty three kilos and was sixty three inches or one hundred sixty centimeters tall. Some hair was still visible on the sides. And back of the head but mccurdy's ears big toes and many of his fingers. Were missing of all the clues that lead the coroner and accompanying historians to determine the mummy's identity. The most interesting was found in the courteous mouth. It had nothing to do with. His teeth was a nineteen twenty. Four penny and ticket stops to the one forty West Pike side show and the Louis Sunny Museum of crime. The discovery made national headlines and an actual distant relative came forward to claim mccurdy's body which was buried on April twenty second nineteen seventy seven in the boot hill section of the summit new cemetery in Guthrie Oklahoma next to the actual body of outlaw. Bill Doolan two feet of concrete were poured on top of the coffin to ensure that mccurdy's rambling days for over mccurdy. Hardly the only outlaw turned famous. Mummy take the case of one. Hazel Farris born in Kentucky in eighteen eighty orphaned as a child and later married to a man with whom she drank heavily and fought loudly. Her history is morphed into folklore but by all accounts on August Sixth Nineteen Five. The couple had an argument over Paris's desire to buy a new hat. If you've been in a relationship for any length of time you know that wasn't really what they were fighting about. The two came to blows and Farris ended up shooting. Her husband who died on the living room floor. Neighbors heard the gunshots summoned police. The situation did not improve upon their arrival because fairus shot and killed them to a passing. Deputy Sheriff heard. The Commotion Gained Entry. To the House and tried to restrain Farris during the scuffle. The deputy tripped on Ferris's husband's body accidentally firing his gun and shooting off. One of her fingers there is eventually broke free and fatally shot the deputy as well so she shot the sheriff and she did shoot the deputy with five murders under her belt and a five hundred dollar reward for her capture which I couldn't put into modern figures because the inflation calculators don't go back that far fairus fled to Bessemer Alabama to try to begin a new life. One version of her story has her posing as schoolmarm another as her working as a prostitute. Both agree that she drank excessively she took up with a new man and when they became engaged fairus confided in. Him who she really was. He immediately gave her up to police on December twentieth. Nineteen O six fairly certain. She wouldn't emerge victorious from a second shootout. He sulfurous committed suicide by drinking combination of Whiskey fuel. Oil and Arsenic Ferris's body was taken to Adams vermillion furniture which also sold caskets and as such functioned as the local funeral parlour. No one came forward to claim her body which was strangely mummifying rather than decomposing. There is speculation that it's because of the chemicals Ferris drink but I don't put a great deal of stock by that regardless of the reason the corpse had longevity and a certain renown Adams began charging curious visitors ten cents to see the notorious outlaw. After a time Ferris's body hit the road. When atoms loaned the corpse to various exhibitors including his brother and Tuscaloosa Palace of wonders sideshow operator Captain Harvey Leabeau's well and OC Brooks who featured the well preserved remains in his traveling show for forty years when he died brooks left Hazel to a nephew on the condition that any money raised from displaying her be donated to charity. As the story goes Brooks's nephew displayed. Ferris's mummy to raise money to build churches in Tennessee.
Intelligence officials ask Congress not to hold threats hearings after angering Trump last year
"A year ago today. The president was so mad as he was watching. Those highlights. That sources told us. He was literally early screaming while watching people like Dan Coats. The former director of national intelligence talk about things like Iran North Korea. And the like because they were contradicting a lot of what you hear from the president publicly so now these intelligence officials have made this request thing. They don't WanNa have to testify about this publicly as you noted you can imagine why given what you were just talking about the Soleimani strike all these issues. Where you've seen this intelligence contradicting itself in recent these officials contradicting themselves in recent weeks? So while it's not the expectation take. This request is going to be granted. It hasn't been any kind of a formal request and we do still believe this report. This report that tells us the biggest threat essentially worldwide is still going to be public. Like you've seen these officials make clear is nothing they wanNA talk about publicly because essentially they are worried about angering president trump. All right CAITLIN. Thank you very much out front now. Ashu adopt a former. FBI special agent. Who knows a lot about these briefings obviously? FBI is involved in them and Republican congressman. Mike Turner Member of the House Intelligence Committee which would be holding one of those hearings hearings on the worldwide threat. Assessment Congressman is. We were talking about as you came out obviously committee has these hearings you get classified briefings behind closed doors but this is the one that the world sees the American public see it comes along with the document and you hear the reporting the top intelligence officials. Don't WanNa do this after last year when they did. You know president trump. Go back to school. It's wrong with you guys. It turned turned into a big A BIG FIASCO. Are you okay with them. Not Giving a public assessment will visit. There's a document that is the public assessment that is available for for the public and hate responding to things that are like one source or unnamed sources about what people are saying at the president might think or feel but I can tell you having served through three administration. There's a number of reasons reasons why the public portion is different than the classified portion that we receive and send sometimes many times administrations are reticent to do the public. I've actually sat through one word. Obama official in the public portion of a Russia threat assessment contradicted themselves than in the classified version because the threats are listening to and that's really the environment that they're in. It's not really. The president. United States is the audience the world is the audience our allies are listening to threats are listening and they also take from what this presentation is what they should do next and what. US policy's going to be so AIYSHA. The thing is though and I understand the point right. They've got different audiences and yet last year. And and this is our reporting. I know congressman. You always say what you just said there but this is reporting from multiple sources. It's bad at town. News organizations operate. They're saying that they don't want to do it because they're afraid of what trump will say they don't. I WANNA be belittled demeaned and humiliated after they say whatever it is. They're going to say. Is that a problem. Aisha that is a problem. Because it tells you off the bat that what they I would say would not align with what the president has been saying. Or what the president's thinking this is exactly why it makes them angry. And I think what you see. Here is basically easily an undermining of two fundamental pillars of democracy which is transparency and accountability transparency into. What do these intelligence heads think are threats threats directly from their mouths and accountability in terms of is the president responding to them effectively and for this president in particular particular? Is He telling the truth about them. So on this point okay. You got a closed door briefing on Iran. You were told that you were told. And you were reticent about it because it was classified presidents allowed to declassify hi which which he does? Sometimes there's no rhyme or reason he appeared to declassify or I don't know make I don't know all I know is he said there were four embassies. He's being targeted by Iran and his own National Security Advisor and secretary defense are unable to back that up. This this is what we're talking about. What are they going to say? Let me just play the president. And Ah play secretaries. ESPERER MR O'Brien I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies. I didn't see one with regard to four embassies I look. It's always difficult. Even with the exquisite intelligence that we have to know exactly what the targets are. Do you want to hear them publicly. Explain why he he said one thing and they have been unable publicly to even say he's right a couple of reasons and and I think it's not really an inconsistency one you have at the president is able to say things that they're not even if I had not correct once he says it is not in the version I have CanNot then be revealed but the second thing is is there's a number of sources of information there's even foreign intelligence sources that we receive those classified briefings at the president has at the Secretary of defense doesn't have That depending upon what the need is what the action is So the information that the president is receiving is much broader than all. The rest of us are going to be saying. They didn't contradict. They said we don't have that information. I didn't see that information which again is Does not say that. They're they're they're convict him. But I want to say one thing with what you said the chance to just to get in on that so when trump says I can reveal. I believe it would've been four embassies. And his own secretary of defense who was responsible for ordering troops to launch a drone attack back. I didn't see one with regard to pharmacies. You don't see that as a contradiction I see it as a contradiction and I think that if the secretary of defense is not seeing the same information mation that the president of the United States is that is a problem in and of itself. I also think that from people who've been in these highly sensitive meetings that that would be almost impossible that the secretary of defense sees the presidential daily briefing. They are the ones advising him on the options that are available in this this particular case where the military strike so I feel like it. Would I mean I would hope that is congressman. You would be incredibly disturbed. Well as you know. You haven't had a classified briefing and fifteen years and even the time period did you did not have access to the type of information that goes into the policy decision making or even the world threats brief that we have to hear in the Intel. Or are you saying you want an answer to this question. You're fine with it being behind closed doors or you just. You're just fine without no. I think there are certainly as utility to having the public hearing but what I was going to say to ashes. Prior statement is that the public hearing the public representation of this information is not about the president night states. This is not about challenging the president's AIDS and what he said this is about people who choose unwanted to harm and so all of our questions with respect to national security and this probably threats briefing the world threats briefing. The classified portions should be. How do we make America say okay? That's true but I should also be aren't our elected leaders responsible for telling us the truth about what threats we face before we decide where we're go to war over them with the bottom line is if they're afraid to tell the truth. Then we have a fundamental issue on these pillars of democracy. That I mentioned before if they they any themselves are afraid to come forward because what they think will you know the president will retaliate against them or any other blowback. That is that is a big problem. We're going to see what happens with The Chairman Chef and his own the world report the world threats report of course is public itself so the transparency is you have the opportunity to read it and from that you can make your own conclusion about what the administration saying and the report so that no questions from our electric present but I see your point. Yes we will. We will get the pay all
Navy Secretary forced out after Trump's war crimes intervention causes division and chaos in military
"So this is right now. Probably the the world's most famous talk yesterday. President trump congratulated America's favorite member of the Armed Services Code Him. The dog help take out the leader of Isis. And we just gave Conan a metal plaque. And it's really uh and I actually think exactly what was going on the mall. That was all smiles. That is not the mood at the Pentagon right now because while Conan might have a job former Navy secretary Richard Spencer does not to wash now where the navy sector has been forced to resign resigned at odds with President trump and his Pentagon secretary over the handling of navy seal warcrimes case as we reported yesterday so I went back to president. Trump's defense of navy seal convicted deposing with the corpse of a prisoner a teenager. Spencer's boss defense. Secretary Mark S. Burt originally said this was all about not respecting the chain of command but yesterday we started hear from the president himself and exactly how this forced resignation went down. ABC's chief global affairs correspondent. Martha Raddatz is with us. So Martha I mean what have we learned over the last twenty four hours. Well the president clearly is the one who ordered the Pentagon to let Eddie Gallagher keep his seal Triton Pin with any gallagher. Did you know that story Mary. Well they wanted to take away and I said No. You're not gonNA take it away. He was a fighter. He was one of the ultimate fighters tough guy and secretary criterion Esperer. The defense secretary said okay. Basically I give up. We're not gonNA have this review where it was possible that he could have lost that Trident. Pin meaning his signifies. He's a seal but more than that his rank which provides benefits as well and I was going to confuse Martha because originally Mark Asper that defense secretary saying. Hey Guy Brand under me Richard Spencer Kinda went behind my back and talk to the White House about this deal but the deal was let gallagher. Keep us pain. which would from the words of Richard Spencer it really sounded like he is not on board with US Navy seal or what the White White House is doing it? It's all very confusing and secretary. Asper made clear that he and Mark Milley the chairman of the Joint Chiefs wanted. The process has to go forward. Wanted to allow the Navy to review gallagher and whether he deserved to keep that tried to pin and his rank doc and benefits defense secretary. espy says he fired Spencer for going around him. In dealing with the gallagher issue what happened according to Esber. Is that Secretary Spencer. The Navy Spencer who is a trump appointee was talking to someone at the White House White House folks and saying look just let the review go forward But in the end he'll keep his Trident Pin Navy Secretary Richard Spencer just issued a statement saying he quote cannot in good conscience obey in order he believes violates his sacred oath. What does this whole controversy mean for president trump then and his role as commander in chief? I listened closely to the President from the Oval Office US on Monday. I think what I'm doing sticking up for our armed forces and there's never been a president that's going to stick up for them and has like like I have including for him to say look. They wanted to take his pin away. And I said you're not going to take it away. He was great fighter. And then you have a system where these warriors with him get put in jail for twenty five years. I'm going to stick for our warrior. I will stick up for the warriors. Okay thank you very much. Everybody those I people in Special Warfare Community who are totally against gallagher keeping that trident say that is not what their culture promotes their culture promotes order and discipline that when the fighting gets tough no matter how mad you are and how angry at that Isis fighter in what all those horrible people stand for. You're a better person and I've been asked him. I mean you know people in the military how I mean. Did you have a ballpark idea of how many of them agree with the president. That guys like gallagher kind of get a bad rap and that our soldiers need more leeway in the fog of war with prisoners of war. I mean are there are a lot of voices like that. I have not really talked to anyone. No one is reached out. In any way saying gallagher was a great guy we are back with Fox News alert update in the case of Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher and he certainly says he has his supporters and we have seen them. I'm trying to encourage people to join the most elite forces. This is a perfect example of how you can destroy that recruitment but I I was in touch with someone I vastly vastly respect. WHO's been in the navy seals for decades and he said the leaders of the special warfare community will feel like they've been chopped off at the knees he's by having the president's Stop Dish Review the jury acquitted gallagher on the most serious charges but convicted him proposing an picture next the body of a teen Isis fighter? They've already taken away about a hundred and Fifty Trident since twenty eleven for lesser offenses. And this this community is so proud of how they got there what they do and what they stand for and there are many of them who do not believe leave that Eddie Gallagher stands for that anymore. The plan is for him to retire soon but he will retire with that pin on his
Turkey-Syria offensive continues; some US troops to stay
"As the ceasefire in Syria runs out today there are reports of skirmishes Lean Kurds and Turkish forces but the trump administration may be partially reversing course on a complete withdrawal of troops from Syria defense secretary mark experts said yesterday Dan yet trump ordered the original withdrawal despite objections from world leaders and bipartisan lawmakers NPR Pentagon reporter. Tom Bowman joins us now and Tom US troops left Syria in a hurry but now some might stay how many will remain in wear we'll Tony it looks like maybe a couple of hundred will stay as you say to protect those oilfields Esper- talked about it and actually president trump echoed that at a cabinet meeting he said if troops day it will be to protect the oil now the oil fields as asper said they want to keep them out of the hands of Isis and other groups and it's interesting to note that it wasn't isis it tried to grab the oil of fields last year when I was over there it was Russian mercenaries and they were pushed back by withering US your strikes of the five hundred that tried to grab oilfield about half of them were killed in those airstrikes so it's not just isis in frankly the Russians probably have more firepower in in Moore's fighters could actually roll in there and grab the oilfields but it's a it's a big concern they want to protect oilfields and also kind of use him as leverage wjr against the Syrian government against Russia to come to some sort of agreement in the country okay what have Pentagon officials told you about these plans are they coming straight from the Department of Defense or has the White House had anything to do with them well it's always a mixture of both of the White House course has say we know president trump has said he wants to to remove troops from places like Iraq and Syria and Afghanistan the Pentagon says more needs to be done isis has not been defeated in this case and we still have to stay the course now it's interesting this is the third time that president trump has tried to pull all the troops out of Korea when I was there in February of two thousand eighteen he announced all would be leaving the Pentagon talked him out of it and again in December of two thousand eighteen he said all two thousand troops would come out there was a compromise and they kept one thousand here we are October two thousand nineteen and he said has all one thousand out and now they're people are dragging their feet on that and saying it looks like you know maybe a couple of hundred will stay in Iraq how did Iraqis feel about more military. US military in their country will wreck officials would not all that happy about it when Defense Secretary Esperer announced that he said these troops will be going to western Iraq to continue the fight against Isis from there and the Iraqi officials said wait a minute you haven't received permission to come in and with those extra troops so he is talking to Iraqi officials trying to smooth things over and as he has said they want to continue the Isis it from Iraq but that's going to be very difficult you need troops on the ground to mount ineffective fight what they can do from Iraq if they're allowed to is surveillance. flights maybe some air strikes across border raids perhaps but you really need folks on the ground to go after Isis and we know that President Air Don met today with with Putin and we're learning about the outcome of that meeting with the ceasefire coming to an end very quickly happens next well likely much more fighting between Kurdish fighters and these Turkish backed militias prisoner of Turkey said there are still thirteen hundred fighters left in that safe zone they're trying to create so we'll see what happens but US military officials I talked with say expect a lot more fighting NPR Pentagon reporter. Tom Bowman thank you

What's actually going on so what's going on right now is that the US is pretty much making hasty withdrawal from Syria had about one thousand troops in northern Syria left a couple of weeks ago and after the president's decision to move troops from the border which essentially green lighted the Turkish invasion we've sped up or withdrawal so we have I believe there's the US troops are consolidating on in two two points in northern Syria one in the east and one in the West in the east they are now moving out by land by convoy and perhaps possibly helicopter to western Iraq and then over in the West Orleans area near Kabbani they're moving out by airlift so this is serve the end of almost the end of US presence in northern Syria although there was news last night that broke that the president is considering a plan which I believe with presented by Lindsey Graham Senator Lindsey Graham to leave a couple hundred maybe two hundred three hundred perhaps in northern Syria primarily to guard at the oilfields which are currently under Kurdish control from getting into president Syrian President Bashar Assad hands and then they would also have a counter isis mission though it's not clear to me what do you hundred troops can do against both Isis and Assad army okay well so let's see then you mentioned Senator Lindsey Graham let's listen to what he said yesterday on Fox News because of course for the past couple of weeks Senator Graham has it's been very vocally critical of president trump's decision to withdraw troops from Syria but here's what he said yesterday on Fox News as I am increasingly optimistic that we can have some historic solutions in Syria that have alluded us for years if we play our cards right so Laura I mean do we know what more grim is talking about why his sudden change of heart and that we can all of a sudden player cards right I think he's probably trying to ACA fine line between what the president wants which is obviously to get US troops home get them out of Syria I get them out of the Middle East and then securing US trust in Syria so we're actually leaving even before this latest plan we were we had been leaving a couple hundred maybe a hundred fifty troops in southern Syria at a small outpost cold Altaf which sort of acting as a buffer for Iran's presence interior it's a it's a very small garrison that's on the border with Jordan where we have the very small base of troops so that was always sort of in the cards and now we have a president trump making another kind of reversal designed to leave a couple of hundred troops in northern Syria. I think that what Lindsey Graham is trying to do is trying to on the one hand we the president and allow him to fulfill his campaign promises while on the other hand keeping residual force in Syria which is really critical to having a stable northern Syria. I mean the Kurds that are there are already civilians are dying for two hundred thousand I believe civilians have been displaced and if this security zone agreement with a Turkey holds it could be more and more people are displaced that area and you have so many interests players there you have Turkey coming in but you also have the Syrian army you also have the the therion rebels the free Syrian army and other Turkish back forces that have been wreaking havoc so it's a chaotic region right now and the presence of U. S. forces are going to be critical to state well I think it well so you mentioned that this cease fire that was brokered by the US last week I mean just let's listen to A moment to former ambassador William Burns who served as ambassador to Russia and as the US Deputy Secretary of state under the Obama Administration he was on CBS face the nation yesterday an he was critical of the trump administration's moves in the past couple of weeks saying that the administration's policy could they long lasting in the region I mean I think there was a smart way and a dumb way to deal with what was a very complicated situation which we had modest leverage in northeast Syria we chose the dunaway and one impulsive presidential phone call we in a sense gave away our leverage and then in a pretty hasty negotiated ceasefire we through the curve under the bus it's former ambassador William Burns on CBS's face the nation yesterday Laura so things seem to be moving so quickly that I just wonder if he might just help walk through whether or not the ceasefire actually was a cease-fire so as of Friday when she star was agreed it sir it was not a ceasefire there were reports all Friday and over the weekend that the Turkish back forces continued shelling the border city of Russia I and and in fact circled the city and would not let medical convoys come in which we're trying to come in and evacuate wounded civilians and I've been in touch with the Kurdish Red Crescent which is one of the only I think medical convoys medical humanitarian groups that is still on the ground there it's just simply too dangerous for most international groups I've been in touch with them and they we're trying to get in all weekend and they told me that many people in fact died due to loss of blood and how am I getting the help that they needed I I'm told that just in yesterday I believe there was another group an American group that was able to get in and evacuate some of the civilians there but in general it's just a horrible nations I think in the last twenty four hours fighting has ceased a little bit although there are still reports of some fighting there is not as much shelling or bombing So I I I have hope right now that the ceasefire is is going to hold and that will allow some time for the Kurdish forces away PG militia to pull back doc which is there they have agreed to do under the ceasefire agreement but but I am still very concerned about all the civilians that have been caught up in this there were reports faces and Torsos these are children and it looks like the Turkish back proxies are are using white phosphorus and potentially other chemicals against the billion so these war crimes are being committed atrocities are happening and it's just an awful situation chemical weapons attacks you're saying on on civilians and children technically white phosphorus is not accountable weapon there's a lot of legalities in that term in fact it's it's not banned in military use but it is a war crime if you said against civilians so lots of technicalities there but if if you're a person who has been burned with white phosphorus I think that the technicalities don't really matter and so then I mean you talked about you talked about the the Syrian forces the Kurdish forces I mean where is there what group if any is ostensibly protecting the civilians as you said some four hundred thousand being or having already been displaced so so recently partnered with the United States to defeat Isis this group it it's very complicated lots of webs of interconnections in this region but but this abyss primarily led by the way PG militia which has links to the PKK which is a terrorist organisation in Turkey that has been waging insurgency in Turkey for the last couple decades so it's it's certainly fair for Turkey TC the PK as a terrorist threat and so that their view of the white PG AF but the the reality on the ground is that the SDS the Syrian why PG the Syrian militia has not weighed aged any attacks on Turkey from Syria in fact what they've been doing is protecting civilians protecting US forces frankly in Syria we've lost I think four. US soldiers in total in the last since two thousand fourteen in Syria compare that to Afghanistan where blue on green attacks are common and the the SDS has been really good ally in the region so it's complicated but the SPF as as they keep saying they are not terrorists and I think they would they would object to that to that appearance we see but I've seen from your reporting Laura that the president end of the Syrian Democratic Council made an emergency trip to Washington very recently to meet with US officials

It's a Pentagon cloud specific cloud or this is yes so rather than every contract rolling their own. They will be required to use Jeddah which means all the people accessing it will need to work a according to the security policies of Djeddai so I in theory it a really good idea. It's I've talked to security pros who work in the defense sector around the area and this is something they all want because in addition to technical considerations you've outlined it also makes it easier for people to understand security and to into work in a way where they reduce the risk of human error in the security process. It keeps people from doing something like hey you know that file you need for the next design drop. Here's the link downloaded that stuff happens at least up to now it was going to be awarded sometime in the next few weeks now the new Defense Secretary Mark Esperer and the president of said that <hes> they want investigate perhaps start over reese you know scuttle the process and come down to the same vendors it really is it also depends on how many more <hes> congressional reps decide to get involved in this fight one way or the other because I can't imagine that anybody who reps northern Virginia is going to sit on the side Ron Johnson Marco Rubio also written letters to the Pentagon raising concerns it is it is a shame when when you start to politicize stuff technical stuff like this on the same at the same token. I think it should be fair. Tech is inherently political and a lot of ways because it can it can introduce perpetuate or exacerbate power imbalances that are there already or economic imbalances that are there already. We had a really good comment in the chat room earlier when we were talking about apple pay and things saying that look a cashless life is in many ways an economic privilege <hes> because not everybody has access to the tech. The infrastructure is right so so again tech is inherently political. What the question should be right now is when the U._S.? Government starts looking at anti-trust cases or anti-competitiveness cases what are the motivations for bringing those cases to in the investigatory stage. What are they hoping to get out of it and WHO's driving us while they drive? There is pressure from <hes> Congress to also move forward on jet I including for G._O._P.. <hes> members hours of the House Armed Services Committee <hes> the committee are this is Texas representative Mac thornberry who wrote a letter to the president urging him to Merv move forward as quickly as possible with the award.

"The shell pennzoil performance line including our guy legs quick note though before we get to legs yeah we just had joey chestnut on world recordholder now and so many things but when the hotdog eating contest he sounded rough no doubt about it he said in about a week he's next competition is pizza eating competition so we thought we give you a little bit of context for that the world he does not hold the world record who does for pizza eating it's jeffrey esperer just if you want to try this someday gang ten minutes eighty three slices get outta here eighty three slices ten minutes that's your world record that's joey chestnut doing it about a week after seventy four hot legs talk to us how much pizza could you possibly eat man i for some reason i'm a pretty good eater but i i when it comes to pizza two three slices man i'm i'm good eighty three brother eighty understand if you have a pizza that's an eight slicer you're eating ten pizzas so you can pizzas in ten minutes i mean these kinds of competitions get me a little bit nauseous ticker we we we saw the the footage of joe he's got crown how many dogs did you inhale yesterday i had three yesterday there you go two different who in two different settings had a couple of cheeseburgers two that was basically lunch and dinner there you go good call i like that yeah i like that network's okay so it was a good day for you because you didn't have seventy four everybody is going nuts in the nba over the signing a boogie cousins what's your takeaway on the idea that he's joining the scene because some people are losing their minds yeah i don't know why people are losing their minds because i think we're we're so far past that point of being surprised by these kinds of things and i think for demarcus cousins actually i really felt sick to my stomach for him when he went down because you know you can you feel about boogie cousins love them hate them you can't stand the metal stops you name it the way he plays even maybe bothersome people the bottom line is the guy put up numbers in this league consistent with making huge money in the free agent market and that's what he was playing toward any went down and the market dried up very strange market out there right now for free agents and to see a guy now waiting his whole career to have this big summer and then he takes his injury and then everybody's very skeptical about signing and he's got really very little options left in fact new orleans did offer them a contract i mean i think for what i can gather it's not true when he said they didn't offer something but to stick a team option on the second year and it wasn't a lot of money i can see how you would take that as you know out of just basically loyalty for what i did for year and a half i deserve better than that i certainly don't want to be stuck with a team option well if i play great i come back from this injury then you guys give me at bargain basement price in the second year of it so i understand why that that turned them off so they looked around and said well then this might be the best move for me i'm gonna go play meaningful games for two months in in the playoffs by then i should be fully healthy and i can basically hit the reset button on free agency for summer twenty nineteen so i kind of get what his thinking was and as far as great players joining other great players i'm way past that point that ship sailed it's been a decade of this now so none of this stuff really surprises me you know as far as boogie cousins my thought is you gotta six eleven two hundred and seventy pounder who plays with an attitude and now is a chip on his shoulder trying to make as money in a year that's a win i think it's going to be pretty much as long as he's healthy we'll have to wait and see going to the lakers and you know we'll talk about lebron being there and who they're signing and this.
