Leadership Lessons from a US Army General Maj Gen John Gronski (retd) - burst 11

"A gunnery. Sergeant michael burkhart was the who was the explosive ordinance disposal team leader went down to that site with two young marines and they were going to conduct a post blast analysis to determine a tactics techniques procedures insurgents. Were using so we could try to prevent these attacks from happening again in the future and when gunny burkhardt got down there with two young rains was chaotic. The soldiers were cisterna. Seen the ad that a chaos there were two reporters from the omaha world herald newspaper there there were embedded reporter so anyway going burkhard gets down. There sees the destroyed up. Armored humvee sees a crater near that up armored humvee bow four feet in diameter a couple of feet deep makes an assumption that that's for that roadside bomb that destroyed that humvee was placed jumps down into crater. Take a closer look as soon as he did that. He realized he made a mistake because he could see in the dirt in front of him to artillery shells. Red detonation cord running in the nose was a roadside bomb. That an insurgent have placed their so. He took his k bar knife. Cut the red debt. Detonation cord to neutralize that roadside bomb. He didn't see a third artillery shell into dirt behind him in that crater. An insurgent was off in the distance. Hit a button. On a that nation device that artillery shell exploded not going burkhardt about fifteen feet into the air lands on the dirt road unconscious pants soaked with blood. Our soldiers call a medevac helicopter. Ride away go up tomb start. Cut his pants off. Start tending to his boons after few minutes burkhart regains consciousness. The soldiers couldn't believe that and and he's laying there and he asked the soldiers if he has both of his legs because they had no no sensation from the waist down. They sure to me had both of his legs. They continue to work on 'em couple minutes later. He gets a tingling sensation in his legs. He tells the soldiers he wants to stand up. Soldiers couldn't believe that this guy had just gotten blown up and so we struggles to his feet. He standing there to soldiers around him. The medevac helicopter comes in lands on the ground behind them. The soldiers point to the stretcher On the ground in front of the misogony. We've got you know. Gotta put you on a stretcher and carry you to that helicopter. He looks at the soldiers and he says i'm not going to have you carry me that helicopter on a stretcher. I'm going to walk there under my own power. Because i don't want the insurgents of the pleasure of seeing me being carried that helicopter and easy. He says that he raises his hand into the air and gives the insurgents which i will call a one finger salute reporter reported from the omaha world heritage takes a picture of him standing there Groin protector. you know. In in front of his private area there. No pants on finger thrown up into the air soldiers around him. You'd say the helicopter the background. That picture became an iconic picture of the iraq war but what is deleted Point of the story. And the reason i tell this story and the reason. I think it's important. The leadership point of this story is member told you. He had two young marines with them that day. He knew he was going to have to recover from his wounds. He knew what all the roadside bomb attacks were getting that those two young marines were going to have to be out there probably later on that day routes realizing roadside bombs. The reason he wanted to walk to that helicopter instead of being carried there had nothing at all to do with what he thought and surgeons for thinking. He wanted to walk to that helicopter so we would not shatter the confidence of those too young marines. Pseudo leadership point is even after getting blown up ten minutes earlier. His main concern was not with his own wounds. His bank concern was with those two young marines. Who he was leading an isn't that what leadership is all about. And we talked about that looking out for the welfare of those you lead rather than your own welfare and that's exactly what gandhi burkhardt exemplified that day. And that's why. I like to tell that story that i read read that story. I had to read it again. Because i was laughing because i could just see i. I have friends who are marines right by the way. There's no such thing as an ex marine okay. the just doesn't exist. I've been told that countless times by my friend there's just no such thing they they may be quote unquote have retired at the end of their name. But they're still all. And and and i just thinking about them go. That's exactly what jimmy would. That's exactly what he would have done. That's what bob would have done. He would have done the same thing. I i can. Just see it. I just great story but it was truly the surprise in that lesson was not. I thought it was going to be resiliency. It is but the point is that he cared so much about making sure that those other two young marines were their that their mental emotional state was not shaken. Yeah and you know jay that think about this as leaders we face adversity almost every day in whatever organization were leading the some degree and and sometimes things get tough honest and the point is as a leader. You can't be thinking. I'm an figuratively. I'll use this. You know you can't be thinking. I'm cold i i'm hungry. You know i. I'm shivering right. No you you've got to show those you're leading that you know what i've got the resiliency to overcome this. And because i do you have the resiliency to overcome. They might be called. I might be hungry. I might be weak. But i'm going to take care of you before i take care of myself. And that's the essence of leadership. We underestimate the modeling of behavior. Don't we when it comes to leadership absolutely. Yeah and you know what the other thing i learned in my forty years of leading soldiers also leading teams in the business sector. Is the people you lead are always watching you practice. You know you could. You could put down in writing. What your leadership philosophy is or you could verbally give some guidance about behaviors. You're looking for but those you lead are going to be watching to see you. Know how do you adhere your own guidance. Behaviors that you're looking for you. Exemplify those behaviors and your followers are always watching and your actions speak so much larger than larger louder than your words. Do

"Next question from chris. Miller chris miller from the air force academy jill. Raymond thanks her. Thanks for the discussion today. In addition to the technical and organizational things you've been doing. I think it's also worth worth noting that you're trying to create a new sort of organizational culture and i'm curious how you see the the name for his face force members guardians Both driving and directing that culture. And how how you see explaining what the space force does to to the public in the us. And and in the world service great to see again great sear. If you weeks ago when i was up at the kademi We work really hard on that name and when it was announced there was a lot of You know put all these stolen from guardians of the galaxy That's not the case at all We in air force base command back in one thousand nine hundred and that command was stood up there was a motto for the command that was adopted in it was guardians of the high frontier. Airforce base command published a magazine. I think it was quarterly was guardians of the high frontier And so as as we crowd source. This i mean we had seven hundred different inputs. Think hundred unique different names. We had linguists. Linguists is a couple of names and we looked at every possible option. We crowd source The top or focus group tested that the top ones that were that were identified and the people in the service and those that are outside the service ardian resonated. The most I i think it's appropriate for the work that we do I i think we The capabilities that we operate like the missile warning capabilities that provide the unblinking eye for our nation to detect against any threat. Either at home or as we saw with the the missile launches in In From iran iraq We provide that. Unblinking guy to be able to protect our nation to protect our operational forces as it relates to to to culture Its culture is not something that you can order on amazon amazon prime and get it overnight. It's gonna take some time to build us. I do think the name is important. We want to build a warfighting culture. We want to build a culture. That's that's innovative That is bold That can move at speed And i am really really pleased with how this is going that the kademi cadets you help grow into second lieutenants Both last year where we had eighty six that came into the service and then this year one hundred eighteen They're they're gonna really. They're going to be the ones along with the rotc cadets The otas graduates and the new recruits that we have coming in through basic training. They're going to be the ones that are going to help us build this culture and get it right. But i think the name that is appropriate. It's tied to our history. In a reflects the critical work that we do for for our nation and for join coalition forces. General i just been there and just you know we're talking about getting the the next generation involved in a chance. Chances any of them will fly. I remember back in the days. When you're force was going to have its own shuttled shuttle missions and they recruited astronauts that were wore. Blue suits Any chance they'll be one of these graduates near academy being orbit absolutely. There's there's fact that we've got to today We've got two astronauts That are assigned to nasa that are space force colonels corona keg Who was on the international space station. Two years ago Landed two years ago actually works here on my staff. He was the officer that help as a test pilot. Graduate in test spots will graduate in helped us designers testing infrastructure and then Colonel mike hopkins who just landed from the is s. He commanded the the the operational for True missing that went up to the international space station just landed a month ago or so. I here. Just recently that he while he was on orbit he transferred over into the space force So there's clearly dislike all other services. The space force will have astronauts that will that will be part of. I also think If you look at where the domain is headed You know we're building this service. Not just for today. But we're billing service for hundred years from now and just think what our air force is today compared to what it was in nineteen forty seven or what the navy is today compared to what it was it's beginning or or the army compared to what it was and so I really see Their their Maybe not in the next two years or five years maybe ten who knows when but his the as access to space continues to That are various access to space to continue to get lowered and more things go into space. More humans go into space. I could predict a future where the space force will be going into the domain as a space for not just as astronauts assigned to nasa. We'll see how that plays out is. The demand of us came next question. I'll take the next question from smith's thank you very much. It's very informative. D smith thus strategic insight group and Lozano long institute of latin american studies university of texas I had a question General about the air traffic control a role that the us plays for the world. How do you see that. Being affected by rising nationalism and and you know the the trend to To fragmentation that exists in the world will that still be respected and We we still have that role and related to that. What is the threat of The kinds of activities that might occur in conflict in terms of creating a Cascade of debris from attacks that were that were you might be mannered against us or other satellites. Thank you very much. Thank you on the on that space. Traffic control work back in two thousand and eight. Two satellites collided In a cost about three thousand pieces of debris and once that happened we started doing all the the conjunction analysis if you will on every object space against every other object in seeing When things might collide and then once We got indications that there was a potential collision. We would really track those objects refined that that analysis and then make warning to the world. We still do that today. the reason why we do that is. We want to keep the domain safe for all. My dad has a couple of years old. So i i'm i'm assuming still the case i don't quote me on this i we. I know it's the case today that that we warn the world and so if if somebody is about satellite or Is about to hit a piece of debris china 'cause when they blew up their own satellite in two thousand seventeen to three thousand pieces of debris. We will warn everybody against that. In fact we won't china that they're about to hit a piece of their own debris back then. This is the part that. I don't know if it's still accurate. But a couple of years ago that represented about ten percent of the of the conjunctions that we had that debris caused by that one event and so Debris forming event of any kind whether it's it's collision whether it's Satellites that break apart at the end of life or launches the litter the space domain with debris upon launch or purposeful destruction like we saw with china all of those are concerning though the way it keep debris from happening. Today is largely. Keep it from creating it in the first place And so you put in engineering standards so when things launch. It doesn't break up into pieces yet. Design satellites that they don't break apart you. You do the warning of the world. The space traffic control. If you will for the world so if things don't collide and you act responsibly. responsibly. The demand. And you don't Blow up satellites In the connecticut in the into thousands of pieces of debris and so That that work has become is becoming a time. Job keeping this domain safe because there's a lot more objects that are in space That's only going to continue in Were looking forward to being able to transfer the space traffic control piece of that missing to to Department of commerce Take that over and.

"Next question a gila. We'll take our next question from samuel business. Thank you thank you general raymond for your insightful comments. Today i'd be grateful for your thoughts about our growing dependence on non-government in commercial space systems. i think you're aware the blue origin is going to be putting up over thirty. Two hundred satellites. I think spacex already has over fourteen hundred up the goal architecture of twelve thousand. There is a discussion under way about the possibility of declaring space systems a new critical infrastructure sector. So grateful for your thoughts about what we can do in terms of recognizing the importance of space systems and not just dod and national security space. And whether there's a benefit to declaring them To be a sector of the nation's critical infrastructure. Thank you no. Thank you sir. I appreciate the question First of all. I think spaces gergo structure if you look at what it provides nation just look at. Gps can look at what it provides our nation of what it provides the world both from a navigation point in from timing point. I mean that is really critical infrastructure for for our country. You talked up front about the the commercial industry. I i'm really excited about what i'm seeing. I think that's probably the biggest opportunity that that we have is to partner with commercial industry in a way i've used the term before we have to have more of fused relationship with industry. And if you look at if you look at what. Nasa did has done here over the last year. They've launched u. s. astronauts from us soil from dod range on commercial rocket with civil Astronauts on board efforts of civil mission. That fused relationship is is is where we want ahead On the space foresight as well. We think there's a there's an opportunity to build an even tighter relationship I i i do think are i would bet on our commercial industry without hesitation if you look at all the advances that are being made in the innovation that's happening and i would not just launch but also would satellite constellations. I think there's a huge opportunity in and we're eager eager to capitalize on that and actually do the force design work in a way that allows us to leverage commercial industry to agree to an even greater Extent than than we have today and to build resiliency into that design next one. We'll take our next question from christina wags. Good morning general christine league vermont morgan stanley boys in thank you for taking my question I guess from from the problem that you've highlighted. My question is is two billion dollar increase in space force budget enough for you to be able to meet the mission requirements and also. How does that two billion compare with how much our adversaries like. China is increasing. Its spend so first of all Every taxpayer dollars press in. If you're from morgan.

"Deploying it taken years and you'll love the world's moved on so i think that's tremendous than we. I'm we're launch up. In matching orbit mendez. We've got a lot of work to do a lot of work to do in We have not. We've had a luxury of having time on our side. We didn't have to go fast if you will. And that's not the case. Today we have to It it would take if i wanted to today to to build a clone of a of a gps allied. It's about a five year process. That's not good enough and so With you know there's a couple of big opportunities with this with industry Doing what they're doing with technology advances with the barriers to entry to space being significantly reduced with allies and partners that are growing capabilities In plans for for more growth We have a huge opportunity ahead of us to change that dynamic in indigo fast. This is a first experiment. And i'm proud of the team. It was less than a year from when i gave him the the the challenge to a launch here in a couple of days Previously i think the fastest ever done was a couple of years and so we'd slash that Half we've got more to gotta go faster And everything that we're doing everything that we're doing. In this capability development process from forces dying requirements to acquisition of testing. Are all being done with being able to balance the being able to the mission to do it at speed and to do it. A at a cost point Where we can save some dollars. As an example we partnered with norway To put we had a requirement to put it to communications payloads salads onto orbit. Norway was already building satellites until rather than have us build satellites. We went to them and said could we put our payloads on your salix. They said yes. in a saved us Over nine hundred million dollars And we'll get onto orbit three years faster because we don't have to build the salads and so everything that we're doing whether it's international partnerships with its commercial partnerships. Weather's how do we designed the forces all getting about resilience speed at a cost. That's interesting that's fascinating and The other thing. I would just observed near launched a response. You're you're not stuck at one point on a plan to launch from any enough to wait for the earth in certain position to to get there so that that's huge norway's bought a lot of f thirty five think too so they they always want them that we have not had the international partnerships in the in the past in national security space on the space domains in and as this domain becomes is a demand becomes even more contested. It's very clear that we can't do this on our own we have to have those partnerships as great strength there As i mentioned in my opening comments probably the thing that i'm most proud of is how we've advanced us partnerships. It's been really really good. Look journal now. Skirted the time when Our members have the opportunity to ask questions. And i'm sure they'll be quite good. Let me turn it over to kayla to do the The necessary percent. Thanks for the conversation. We'll take the first question from jim's take life morning gentleman..

"That i think one of the main areas where we The reason why we still a space force was we have to go fast. If you'd asked me what what keeps me awake at night or or what. What do i wish we had the thing that concerns me our ability to go fast and so everything that we're doing in in the space force is designed to allow us to move and speed and so i Challenged about a year ago. I challenge our our acquisition organization to develop a capability in tactical timelines be integrated onto a launch vehicle in let and and launch in. Let's see how fast we can do it. And so we stood up an organization called space safari model guide after what the air force has done with with their big safari program and in less than a year. They satellite components Off the shelf. Mary it up with a satellite bus. That was off the shelf. Put them together in its space. Domain awareness satellite They built that satellite. We kind of had it on the shelf with just gave them a twenty one day. Call up say get ready to launch and twenty one days They got a contract for a launch vehicle. Which is a a pegasus launch vehicle. That launches from wing of an aircraft They they made that rocket to the to the Airplane yesterday at vanderberg and on the thirteenth we're gonna launch an so. We're really driving to be able to develop capability and move. Its beat the other big area that that we needed to make shift on is we have to change. The design of architecture Are the design that we have. Today are small numbers of berry exquisite highly capable satellites. And we need to diversify that architecture and so we're doing a lot of work to redesign what that architecture should look like to build Resiliency into the inherent design of that of that architecture. That's a The most critical that we've got going on right now to make that ship general To me it's a key issue in i. I hope our members understand responsive space is more than just jorgen. It's at addresses. The issue of you know if something happens. How quickly can you get something up there that you need to inspect to adjust and you know exactly what you're talking getting the response time down. I mean you guys are not like the. Us navy where they ordered aircraft carrier this decade and may be derived next decade the traditional way of buying satellites..

The Real History of Memorial Day

"This on the history channel. This is the only reason by the way I keep subscribing to cable. The history Channel Memorial Day is observed the last day of May. Course that's coming up Monday honoring the men and women who died while serving in the military. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials. They hold family gatherings. They participate in parades unofficially as well. That marks the beginning of the summer season and the majority of us use. It is a three day weekend kick off the summer. Memorial Day as decoration Day gradually came to be known. Originally honored on Lee, those people lost while fighting in the Civil war. But then during World War one, the U. S found itself embroiled in another major conflict in the holiday evolved to commemorate American military personnel who died in all the wars. For decades. Memorial Day continue to be observed on May 30th. That was the date selected for the first decoration day. But in 1968 Congress passed the uniform Monday Holiday Act, which established Memorial Day is the last Monday in May. That was in order to create a three day weekend for federal employees. Because God cells they don't have enough time off, do they Change went into effect in 1971. That same law also declared Memorial Day of federal holiday. Now, if you're wondering really, how far back it goes on, may 5th 18 68.

With every passing day, the harder it'll be to reach vaccination targets

"There's been nearly three hundred thousand. Doses of coronavirus vaccine have been deleted across australia since the rollout began. But we heard from epidemiologist mary. Louise mclaughlin weeks ago that we would have to be vaccinating about one hundred and nine hundred thousand people a day to reach our targets and of course we haven't been vaccinating that many people a day for weeks now so presumably. We've gotta make up that shortfall and norman. What are these barriers at stopping us from from really ramping up this roll out to the stage that it needs to be at for us to actually make those targets well. One barrier is simple. Logistics is that we don't have the vaccine. We haven't had the vaccine in the country. We didn't get a batch of astro which was blocked by italy coming in it may well be in the future of the twenty million of doses. They may be delayed as well as if they get blocked by europe. Hopefully they won't be and so we've got a supply issue while our local supply comes on stream which is coming onstream now and that's going to be a good thing. But that's a million a week that supposedly coming on we've had more vaccine in the country we should have been able to distribute it more than we have. We haven't been able to do that. And it's been miscommunication which the federal government and general practice generates confused the communities confused and not enough. Vaccines are getting through to general practice. There are multiple issues here and of course the federal government is committed to doing this through general practice which is fine general. John apprentices wanted to do that has been success with the gp respiratory clinics and doing and we can actually see a ramp up there. But you're absolutely right. Teeing is that for every week. That goes by and you miss that target you. Just add on that target to the next week. And then you missed that target you add onto the next week. So you cumulatively are talking about much more than one hundred nine hundred thousand a day because you've got to catch up now what's going to have to happen down. The track is only going to be a limit to how much general practice can do. And we're going to have to include the state's not in the states to take over but the states can tool up. Imagine pretty quickly to provide services for large numbers of people in convention centers in football stadiums and other places independent hospitals people can get on with the regular job here and that would be for all comers. Once people immunize our high risk healthcare workers people in age care cetera. Then you could just say to people forget all this business turn up a local convention center will tell you what the waiting time is and just get it done. You don't have to make an appointment. Just turn up and anybody turn up. Who wants suits and you deliver it that way. In addition to general practice not instead of in addition. That's sort of uplift you're going to have to need and the you're going to need and the komo government will inevitably move in that direction. The only way they're going to achieve the target

I think it's a really cool program and I would encourage people you know, $15. I would encourage it, Tio. To log on and do what you can do. Colorado honor dot com is the name of the website or you can text on, or 2022 41444? Love this great great thing that you could dio And I learned a little something here reading this. Press release. Fort Logan is named after Union General John A. Logan. And he's the guy that started Memorial Day. I didn't realize that either. Could be a distant cousin of yours to uncle was my uncle, Uncle John. Maybe six. And I don't. I don't. I don't think there's a lot of Logan's right. Yeah. But that's I didn't know that. I wondered who they named that after now I know Pretty cool. Yeah, Yeah, It's a good thing. So 3037138585 is the number. We told you earlier that Shelby Harris has tested positive for covert 19 Benjamin Aubrey. On top of that story, so the Bronco defensive line Well, well again. Take a hit in an area that they've already taken hits this year. No, General Casey. Uh, no. Mike Purcell. So I mean, Shelby Harris. So those were the three starters in week one against the Tennessee Titans. None of which Two of the three are out for the season, and Shelby is out. We have. We have not yet found out exactly if a player test positive what the protocol is in terms of how many days they missed if a player comes in contact With somebody who test positive have to quarantine obviously, But there is a clause in the I guess understanding between the NFL and the players. That says If you have five consecutive days of negative tests, then you're able to at that point, the released from the quarantine. I don't know that that applies to somebody who actually test positive. I believe it's 10 days from what I can see. So he'll be out 10, which means he'll miss this game and should be available for the next game. Against the Dolphins. Here's the good part of this story. Always looking for the good is because shall be Reported that he was in contact with somebody. That had covert and then self quarantine. Hey, wasn't in the Broncos facility. He didn't play in the game Sunday. Imagine if he would have done that. You would have had a whole lot of positive tests. Probably on this Denver Broncos team was here yesterday. I don't think so. I don't get it would've been the first day back. I don't know if they had practice yesterday in the building. No, no. Tuesday's the players. They are OK. They did not have practice and he wasn't back on Monday. I don't think so. I mean, the players normally come in Mondays, and they get a lift on then they review film either individually or I mean, you know, some of the the rules differ from team to team. Okay, some some coaches want The entire defense to watch film in the entire offense. I know of a couple coaches that one of the whole team to watch film together, but nowadays and of course, that's all off with a Koven 19 thing, but Nowadays, there are coaches that allow players. If they win the team wins. Then you can come in and individually. Watch your film, okay? So it was a good thing. He did what he did. You know, he could have just kept it to himself. No, selfishly. Yeah, played in the game, and then we would have had probably a lot of Broncos right now, we'd had a mess from the 303475. Did Dave ever hear more from his colleague where his entire family was deemed positive without the whole family being tested? I have The whole family quarantined. Ah, and now they're they're fine. They're back in civilisation. But that story in case you were with us, and that was probably I don't know. Three weeks ago, time does run together. Um There was a family who the grandfather. Of the dad. The grant, the grandfather of the sun came and stayed with the family for a while The grandfather tested positive. So the dad and his son I went to go get tested. And when they went to go get tested. They ask them questions about Okay. What's going on? Well, you know, my dad is in town. He's tested positive, and at that point, they were told. Oh, You don't even need to test just quarantine you quarantine We're putting you down is positive. Now. I don't know any other circumstances. I don't know where he went. I didn't ask for none of my business. But that was a story that sort of grabs your attention. I guess they just thought if you're in the same house with somebody who test positive I guess they you know, I guess they conclude that you're going to test positive. I've seen examples of that. Not being true. But so be it. I have a question. I'd like to throw out there. Can you get these rapid test? Can you buy? Like, say, could I buy 10 Rapid test just to have of the Abbotts? Yes. I don't.

Trump reportedly called service members "losers" and "suckers"

"Again in the Atlantic and it sets the scene all the way back in two thousand eighteen when trump was in. Paris he was supposed to visit a cemetery for soldiers who died in war and if you'll remember he didn't actually end up going because he said the helicopter couldn't fly because it was raining. And there was a big deal about that obviously because he was afraid of a little rain. He also tried to claim that the secret service wouldn't drive but Jeffrey Goldberg says neither claim was true. In reality he says trump rejected the idea of visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain and because he did not believe it was important honor American war dead in that is according to four people with firsthand knowledge of discussion that day. He goes on to say in a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit. Trump said quote why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers. It continues in a separate conversation on the same trip trump referred to more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as quote suckers for getting killed. Bellawood was apparently consequential battle in American history I don't remember it off the top of my head, but I'm just reading what's in the article here. And it says that in that same trip talking about world war. One trump asked who are the good guys in this war? He also said that he didn't understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the allies. Now you'll remember he said this about John McCain back in two thousand fifteen but lost. So I, never liked him as much after that because I don't like interest. But but Frank Franklin. We get to He. He's war hero. He's a war. He's a war hero presumes capture. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. The article says that trump had remained fixated on McCain in that when he died back in August twenty, eighteen trump told his senior staff this time according to three sources with direct knowledge of quote we going to support that losers funeral end quote and that he became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff saying quote what the F. Are we doing that for guy was a f Ing Loser The White House denies this whole report by the way saying, then the Anti Yadda trump's supported the military more than any president. The article continues according to sources with knowledge of the president's views. He seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military on at least two occasions since becoming president according to three sources with direct knowledge of his views trump referred to former president George h.w Bush as a quote loser for being shot down by the Japanese. This is where it starts to really get cruel on memorial day twenty, seventeen trump went with then department of Homeland Security Secretary John, Kelly to Arlington Cemetery. The article says the two men were set to visit section sixty, the fourteen acre area of the cemetery that it is burial ground for those killed in America's most recent wars. Kelly son Robert is buried in section sixty according to sources with knowledge of this visit trump while standing by Robert Kelly's grave turned directly to John Kelly in said quote I don't get it what was in it for them. Kelly said he originally thought trump was making a ham handed reference to these selflessness of America's all volunteer force. But later he came to realize that trump simply does not understand non transactional life choices. This is coming from one of Kelly's friends who Goldberg says a retired four. Star General. This friend says quote he can't fathom the idea of doing something for someone other than himself. He just thinks that anyone who does anything when there's no direct personal gain to be had is a sucker. There's no money in serving the nation trump can't imagine anyone else's pain. That's why he would say this to the father of a fallen marine on Memorial Day in the cemetery where he's buried. It goes on to talk about how trump is basically used the military as props how he thinks they answer only to not the constitution as evidenced by his gassing of peaceful protesters in officer who had firsthand knowledge of trump's views says quote. He has a lot of fear. He doesn't see the heroism in fighting and then Goldberg says several observers told me that trump is deeply anxious about dying or being disfigured in this worry manifests itself as disgust for those who have suffered. Than it tells another story about how trump falsely claimed he called quote virtually all of the family members of service members who had died during his term, and then when family started speaking out and saying, no, you didn't trump had to begin rush shipping condolences to those families. Felt last paragraph ends on, which is actually pretty profound. I didn't expect you know something. So big to be saved for the end I thought would be the author's own thoughts but it says in a twenty eighteen White House planning meeting for such an event trump asked to staff not to include wounded veterans on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees quote nobody wants to see that end quote. I think to me the details really do add credibility and he says he's talking to three or four sources all the time. But it got really interesting here when the Associated Press confirmed his sources essentially this tweet from James Laporta an investigative reporter former marine infantryman. Now, obviously, with the Associated Press, the port a tweeted out yesterday a senior Defense Department official I just spoke with confirmed this story by Jeffrey. Goldberg in its entirety especially the graphs about late senator, John McCain and former Marine General John Kelly president. Donald Trump's former chief of staff. So before that, you had people trying to push out, wouldn't say this. Of course, he didn't say this this is false. Trump. Himself devoted three tweets to claiming that was just a hoax made up by the media who are hungry to You know and his political career. But yeah, that was definitely a big shock when she came out in essentially confirmed most of the story. Republicans are doing their usual remaining silent or denying that it's still true. and. I just don't know how you could say it's not true. He said this in public but. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like. It was right out there and this other tweet from just some random twitter account but it made me think the commander in chief was found guilty stealing money from kids. Cancer charity mocks disabled reporters, gases, protesters for photo ops over twenty thousand lies kills one hundred, ninety, thousand Americans violate civil rights, incites violence calls, fallen soldiers, losers, and suckers. Yeah I guess if you put it against everything, we know about trump name calling certainly seems to be in his wheelhouse. Mentioned surprised that this came to be a big story

"Men who died in uniform Losers, Atlantic Magazine says it's true Associated Press says it too, but the White House is not true. Welcome to wrestling Hunter Rob Hunter in solo today. Mike back with us on Tuesday is from an article called Trump. Americans who died in war are losers and suckers. He was pretty audacious. That man would say that about our war heroes. Let's give you a little background on this story. It goes back to 2018 Paris, You may remember the president was. There is veteran's day. Was going to go to a cemetery That's four hours away from Paris. It was, cloudy was overcast. Trump cancelled. From canceled because the secret Service says Marine one could not fly in the overcast skies and because it was raining. We could have taken a car, but it's four hours and it was apparently worries about his security along the route, so we decided not to go with the Behest of then Chief of Staff General John Kelly. Apparently with the Atlantic says, quoting a couple of anonymous or anonymous, anonymous talking like job I know here are not anonymous sources. That, he says. Why would I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers. Of course, everybody's all fired up about everybody's commenting. Joe Biden commented on it today. As did everybody else, including the White House.

DOJ won't reveal congressional candidate who asked for, received hacked info on their opponent

"With less than 100 days before the presidential election. U. S intelligence officials are warning that Russia and other adversaries are once again interfering in our democratic process. In 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his intelligence agencies to create chaos in our system, using a combination of social media manipulation, propaganda and other dirty tricks. President. Trump's Justice Department currently has at least two open cases against Russian citizens for disrupting the 2016 presidential and congressional elections. As we first reported last November, 12 Russian military officers are still at large, charged with breaking into the Democratic Party's computers in 2016. Stealing compromising information and selectively releasing it to undermine specific candidates. There's no evidence of similar operations against Republicans in 2016. With the 2020 election's just around the corner. Ah cautionary tale, the Russian hack. The Russians never left. I can guarantee you in 2016. After this all into news. They never left. They didn't stop doing what they're doing. This wasn't just a one time thing. No way. Russia doesn't do it that way. Robert Anderson should know. He spent 21 years inside the cloak and dagger world of spies and hackers overseeing the FBI's counterintelligence and cyber divisions. And tracking Moscow spy agencies, an alphabet of artifice, the FSB S V, R, and especially the G R U G. RU is military intelligence. So when we look at the attacks that happened during a presidential Races in 2016. You had military organisations inside of Russia attacking our infrastructure. So are the hackers or are the soldiers? So they're both on in most cases in most these units or not just hackers. They're probably some of the best mathematical minds in Russia. These air seasoned professionals that have worked away up the ranks to be in these units. To carry out the strategic attacks on behalf of that country. These are the hacker soldiers from G R U unit 26165, who, according to the Justice Department were responsible for breaking and entering into the Democratic Party's computers remotely from Moscow. Their names, ranks and faces are now on the FBI's most wanted list for stealing, among other things, the Democrats, strategic plans detailed targeting data and internal polling. G R U Colonel Alexander also joke commanded a separate unit. 744551 of his officers was in charge of spreading this stolen material to political operatives, bloggers and the media. Another hack state election boards. It wasn't some £400 guy in his parents Basement. No, this was a well choreographed military operation. With units that not only were set up specifically to hack into obtain information, but other units that were used for psychological warfare or weaponizing that this is not an operation that was just put together haphazardly. So that was the 26165 unit. The Justice Department's National security division is overseeing the Russian hacking case once they're doing that keystroke monitoring, Assistant Attorney General John Dimmers runs the division. Along with the deputies, Adam Hickey and Sean knew DOJ attorney Heather Al Pino worked with special counsel Mueller on the Russian indictments all have access to the underlying intelligence and have no doubt the rush. Shins interfered in the 2016 election. This really happened. Yes, that really happened. And we believe that if we had to, we could prove that in court tomorrow, using only admissible non classified evidence to 12 jurors. You ever expect to get the 12 Russian officials The trial. I would be surprised, But the purpose of the indictment isn't just that, although that's certainly one of the purposes, the purposes of this kind of indictment is even, uh, to educate the public. For a legal document. The 29 page indictment is a page Turner It. Details how U. S intelligence agencies tracked each defendant's actions, sometimes by the keystroke, revealing the fictitious names and phony emails used to infiltrate the Democrats, computers. And tracing the stolen data on its circuitous route from Washington, D. C. To Moscow. The information in the indictment is very detailed. You have descriptions of the Russian agents. Typing. Into their computers. Obviously, I can't go into too much detail because I don't want to reveal investigative methods. But the inside here is that behind every one of those Keyboard's is not night P address. It's a human being those indicted G R U agents. The U. S. Says one team, working out of a building in Moscow called the Tower created a website and a provocative character to disseminate this stolen material. Lucifer 2.0 So goose over 2.0 is a fictional online persona. It's all an effort. The Russian side to hide their involvement. And these guys are pretending to be one lone hacker. Correct, and that works. What it gives them is plausible deniability. Right. They don't need to work 100% as long as the Russians, Khun say. Wasn't us. Posing as goose A for 2.0. The Russians offered up stolen documents to Julian Assange, Jas wiki leaks and self proclaimed dirty trickster Roger Stone. It was all part of a broad campaign to disrupt the presidential election. But there was another less well known part of the Russian operation to undermine Democrats running for Congress. It started as large document dumps where goose for 2.0 was kind of taunting and saying, I have more Kelli Ward Burton was executive director of the D. Triple C. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. When the Russians hacked the committee's computers, these bullet points at the top are the summary for how we need to win. They swiped and dumped on the Internet material, she told us cost millions of dollars to produce. Battle plans for congressional races, demographic research on voters and extensive dossiers on the weaknesses of their own candidates. So when we deliberate internally about anything, you know that's not intended to be made public, and that's what makes this so important to understand these as stolen documents. It's not different than Watergate. It's not different than When Republicans came into the DNC and stole documents from the file cabinets. It's the cyber version of that they came into our office and they stole Our documents. Documents were never intended to be public. And then they used that in the election, even Democrat party bosses or questioning his character. Ward was shocked when Republicans used the stolen internal materials in this negative ad. We reach out to them and ask them, you know, we way, said We've been the victims of a cyber attack by a foreign adversary. Will you make a commitment not to use any of these stolen materials in In the campaigner in the 2016 election, and they wouldn't make a commitment to do so, she says. In the months leading up to the elections, Russian tactics evolved, the indiscriminate document dumps became more frequent and strategic. There would be thousands of documents that would show up on one day and then they got smarter and he started to really specific documents. Related to our specific races or documents that were in art most targeted states and are most targeted areas.

China says it will retaliate after US orders its Houston consulate to close

"With the Chinese. Let's deal with the hacking situation and the story that broke yesterday and even before this, we had heard that the Chinese were actively trying to steal intellectual property on Research for a Corona virus vaccine and it comes down to the Chinese know that this virus originated in Wuhan. The Chinese know that they misled the world. They misled the United States they misled. Originally, the World Health Organisation, which has become complicity with the Chinese. On multiple levels and the Chinese did a disservice to humanity. Let's look at it through the prism and the lenses of us here in the United States. That if they would have let us know in December Or early January what they knew and if the Chinese would have locked down Wuhan sooner, even just a week sooner. They didn't tell their own people between January 14th in the 21st and there was a massive spread and rule on at that point. They don't even tell their own people or they didn't move to lock things down. And again the Chinese Communist government completely to blame here for mishandling and mismanaging and lying to the world. And with that said the Chinese don't want Toby. Shown up that they don't want to be behind the eight ball. They want to also be the ones that say, Hey, we've got the best vaccine against Corona virus. Instead of all of the other pharmaceutical and research and institutions around the world that are working diligently and feverishly. On a vaccine whether it's German scientists whether it's French, whether it's what we're hearing out of Oxford in the UK Fizer here in the United States and, of course, their branches all around the world, Moderna. You know, that's just a fraction of who's working. Johnson and Johnson here in the United States is just a fraction of who's working on this vaccine. And the Chinese were we heard this two months ago. I talked about this on the program months ago that the Chinese were tryingto hack and steal data from all over the world so they could be first. Was saying, Hey, we got the vaccine. And now we have two Chinese hackers that have been formally charged with trying to steal research on the Corona virus vaccine. Trying to steal from private companies trying to steal from our government agencies as well. And this is what came down from the DOJ yesterday. And these two guys apparently work that the Chinese Ministry of State Security and the Gwang Dong State Security Department To lead a campaign, which the DOJ the assistant attorney General, John Demmer said was a sweeping global computer intrusion campaign. That's the nice way to say hacking intellectual property theft just going in and stealing. Chinese are very, very good at this. That's why they've gotten so far militarily. From a industrial standpoint, they stolen countless countless hundreds of billions or trillions. An intellectual property. Lee. Zhou Yu, 34 years old and dung. Jeez, I got zero J A Z a shot. G, uh 31. According to the reports, they targeted intellectual property and confidential business information. Held by Pharmaceutical companies and those that are steaming full speed ahead toward a corona virus treatment. Treatments. So the therapeutics the testing issues, the vaccines they were trying to rip off and bust into everything. And this is what the Chinese have done again. Defense contractors. Why do you think the latest generation of the Chinese fighter jet looks just like the F 35 Because they ripped off was the Lockheed Martin or north of Groman. They They controlled her back in the late to thousands like 8 4009 And they stole a whole lot of defence information on the F 35 ripped it off. So it's defense contractors. They rip off the pharmaceutical companies. A computer high tech medical device companies. The Chinese even have a history of busting into solar energy companies here in the United States video game development They're ripping off information. They're stealing codes. It's nonstop on what the Chinese do their absolute thieves. When it comes to intellectual property. According to the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago. And were ongoing as of the date of the indictment, according to AA de MERS. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets. Establishing themselves as a prolific threat to the U. S and foreign networks. And these charges from the feds. They say that these Chinese hackers tried to access the accounts of other organizations that we're not government organizations. They tried to bust also into dissident organizations or actual dissidents or clergy, human rights activists. Is it trying to get Intel and so they can punish and and go after anything that's a threat to the Chinese Communist. Regime. That's what this comes down to. Yeah, Lee and Dung they were working on high tech companies. That was their focus, but they had a whole team. They work of others, obviously, but Lee and Dung they were, they were focused on busting into high tech companies here in the United States, also in South Korea, and Sweden and Spain, Australia, Belgium, Britain. Germany, Japan, Lithuania Nothing about a stony and Latvia. But Lithuania and these indictments were filed in U. S District Court in Washington. And shows that Beijing is using fight cyber theft. In a worldwide campaign. To quote Robbe replicate and replace non Chinese companies in the global marketplace. And then there's also said that China is providing the safe haven for these criminals in order for the Chinese government to get all this information that these guys were Pretty much on the Chinese kami payroll. China has not taken its place alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals to exchange or in exchange for those criminals being on call toe work for the benefit of the state. Again to feed the Chinese Communist Party's insatiable hunger. For American and other non Chinese companies. And to steal their hard earned intellectual property, including covert 19 research, according to Des Murs, assistant attorney general It's a huge problem it has been, and that's why the Chinese are as far as they are. So on the heels of that now we go to the next chapter. And that's that the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, has been ordered closed and, you know he's got his finger on this pulse and is spot on and is not a great job and doesn't pull punches. Mince words. And that's Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio. He gets and has gotten the Chinese threat for a very long time. And what Marco Rubio said today in Fox Business interview is that the Chinese Consulate in Houston is a front for a massive spy organization. And the State Department has ordered that consulate in Houston. To shut down, he said. This consulate is basically a front. It's kind of the central node of a massive spy operation. Commercial espionage, defense espionage. Also influence agents try to influence Congress, according to Marco Rubio. And by the way, Senator Rubio is the acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And he said that this closure of the Houston Chinese consulate was long overdue. And he said the State Department Was completely right Team make this move, and the State Department says that this is absolutely necessary to protect intellectual property here in the United States and private information. And of course, the Chinese. They're going ballistic. They're saying that they could retaliate. That this is uncalled for. This is a gray GIs. We could retaliate. China China When you get there, try to get you to send another virus our way. Is that how you going to retaliate? And Rubio also predicted that China Would then retaliate by closing one of our diplomatic facilities. In China. And if you wanna get a snapshot of what we have in China, Of course, we have the official U. S embassy in Beijing, but we have five consulates around China. We have a consulate in Shanghai. We have a U. S consulate in Gwang Ju. We have a U. S consulate and Cheng do and Wuhan Great and in Shenyang, So we have apparently five other Consulates. On top of our embassy. So the expectation is the Chinese going to retaliate by shutting down one of our places. Hey, what about this fire? What about the Houston Fire Department being called to this embassy or this consulate? Has to shut down by end of business like 45 o'clock on Friday. So the Chinese have to shut this thing down and get out by the end of this week. By Friday afternoon, And last night, there was a fire at the embassy Smoke and Houston Fire department responded. What do you think happened? Where was the fire? What were they doing? Hold on to that thought, because we'll wrap up this whole story with that next. Here on Schmidt, I

Ely Parker | Part 2 | The Civil War

"Hello and welcome to Iroquois history and legends. I'm Caleb. I am Andrew we are continuing with our series on the lustrous Mr L. E. S. Parker last episode we talked about his early life is education his diplomacy with the United States and his job as a civil engineer, and where he finds himself, now is in between jobs, and at the brink of the civil war in the United States breaking out, and I'm GonNa sum this up. Up What had happened was we saw all these native American peoples being removed from their land and forced to move west across the Mississippi and into the Oklahoma territory with all these native peoples depopulated from the eastern United States that left all kinds of area that opened up for agriculture and farming, and this led to more tension between the northern and southern states, because you had people joining to rush into the southern and western states. And, they wanted to make sure that slavery was instituted these places because then they could keep their balance of power higher in the US Congress were they could get more senators or members of the House of Representatives to make policies that would guarantee the rights of the southern territories and states, so that's where we find ourselves in and states are rushing around to be declared slave or free, and then a Abraham Lincoln gets elected president, and all heck breaks loose now you may think hey, Parker. He became a captain in the New York. State militia right so he's probably getting ready for war to. But no, he wasn't called upon for his services in engineering in the military or anything so after he finished his contracts in. Illinois he moved back to the tunnel, Wanda reservation and began farming. He quickly became very bored Andrew farming was not the life for a man like him. Many of the Seneca were gearing up for war, looking to join the United States Army Parker went and spoke to his father. Who as you recall from last episode was a veteran from the war of eighteen twelve, and he received his blessing to take up the war, Pat, but Parker. He wasn't. GonNa go as grunt. He wanted to go as a commission soldier. You'd already been. been a captain in the New York militia, so he asked the governor of New York for a commission like a real commission is apparently the militia commissions didn't really count the governor of New York declined so then what did he do when things fail in New York do what everybody else does. Go to a different state. I'm just kidding, but he did. bypass New York state and try to go directly to the federal government. You know. He had some friends in high places in Washington at this point, so he said Hey. Captain in the New York State militia civil engineer. How about a commission? declined. He got a letter from the Secretary of war Edwin Stanton. Quote. Parker this is a quarrel between white men, in which you Indians are not concerned, unquote. Another federal official that he wrote to told him quote. Unquote and I'm sure. They said it just as condescendingly. Some people may have made departure that his lack of US citizenship. Maybe what's holding him back from getting this commission? Because this is the same time that we see, he actually applied for citizenship. Oh, how'd that work out for him? Mile had a lot like everything else to the government. He was turned it down again. So from eighteen, sixty, one to eighteen, sixty two, he worked on his farm, and he also worked for the Indians on the reservation. He penned one letter to an old militia General John Martindale where he jokes about being a bad farmer and eating a wife, he asked the general quote. If, he knew any strong, healthy, double breasted woman that would want to be a farmer's wife. Can you say that again? That strong. HOW DOUBLE BREASTED WOMAN! So I thought you said? Did you think double breasted? Okay then we're just. This is a family home to show after all so. We'll just leave it at that. I don't know it seems like pretty good things to look for in a woman. Was His. With a lot of single I'm. You were saying. Parker has been farming for about two years now any starting to think that he's never gonNA. Get his chance. But he did still have a few friends looking out for me and you. And they were a couple of friends that were becoming pretty influential in the war, and Parker didn't even think the contact them. One of them was the jeweler in Gallina, and the other was the grocer. They are now being known as General John. Smith and General Ulysses S grant. They actually said to themselves. You know who we could use right now is parker. Parker was joined to the General Staff with the rank of captain in May twenty, fifth, eighteen, sixty three, but you'll never guess Andrew. He found another complication and this one is coming from a different. Place than you would think. If you remember Parker was made a what. Saito in say tim was a life appointment. Holding has shown checks and balances aspect of the government. Say Chimps were the political leaders. And they could not go to war right? You would have a war chief appointed, and you would have your say. And you'll have your clan. Mothers Each end so now he wants to go to war, but he's a saint shown so Ariza. Wait a minute. Can you legally legally from the? WHO NEEDS schone standpoint? Can you legally go to war? So a meeting was held, and they decided that sense he would be a captain fighting in the war of the whites. You would not be violating the checks and balances protocol.

twenty seventeen way just give us an example announcer started in January twenty seventeen on a trip to Palo alto and we were doing some work in his hotel after his hotel room after work hours he asked me to stay behind we went over and covered some stuff for the next day engagements at Stanford and then as I was leaving he actually stopped me on my way out the door hold my hand to his growing and had an erect **** and I was very shocked and confused like I don't understand what that meant I was mortified and he I just turned around and he gave me a sort of a face that was very disconcerting like he thought I would like that he didn't say anything I'd said I did basically don't say anything I left and that was the first encounter I thought it could have been a mistake or an accident and you you've said that these advances continued off and on through twenty seventeen and then in December something more serious happened well I would say in June something more serious happened a in June in Washington DC and we made a lot of trips in DC this is another time where we were actually going over some work for the next day to prepare for some engagements in DC and he asked me to stay and go over some work and that it was in his hotel suite it was after the duty hour but it wasn't very late and he stood over my shoulder he grabbed my breasts and turning around he started kissing me passionately and I'll push him off and said this is not going to happen like what are you doing and he said hi I just want to see how that felt I thought you would like it and I like it in like a war would you think that is right well I thought you liked me and I was like do like you but not like that he's like well why not I'm like you're married you're my boss and you're not my type and so yes we like what my type was and I said someone not marry someone not my boss and I prefer men of color and he made a snarky remark about that's why I myself and his former a got along so well because he was an African American guy we proceeded to have a conversation that was very argumentative he got upset a he actually sat down on on the couch and actually started crying and I was very confused and shocked at that he's a he's a very emotional guy but now I'm sort of in a position where he did something incredibly wrong to me and I don't really know what to do but I got really upset and really angry and mad that you continue to work with him and I did so I thought he got one of seven ointment like that it you know it can never happen again and then in December you were on another travel yeah there were some small incidents in between there but yes we were at the Reagan security for the diff different in California and he asked to he showed up at your hotel room outside the door and you let him in yeah so now it was it was after the dinner that it was a great event the whole the whole form went really really well and so as I was preparing to go to sleep for the evening I was putting on face cream and I get a knock on the door and I thought well it's funny the aid or the com or the security detail and it was him and he just walked in my room and I'm like thinking something was wrong like did did something happen that I screw up did I not meet the standard or something for that day is like nine I just want to talk he had come in my room will work fine and she's like I just wanna talk and I'm like okay so he sat on the bed and he has to sit next to and I was really confused and I was like oh this is sort of weird but I don't know what's going to

"General John Allen, former allied commander in Afghanistan this event hosted by the Washington Post it took place Wednesday. All right. I'm back. Again, I'm Fred hi at the editorial page editor here at the post. We're fortunate to have Wendy Sherman. Former under secretary of state and. Malcolm is a former naval intelligence officer, Malcolm Nance, and author and expert on. Encroachments of authoritarianism into our society and bookings institution senior fellow and Washington Post contributing columnist forever. Thank you all for coming. Let me start with you, Wendy. Because you were a senior diplomat during the last administration, traveling the world. And so I'm sure you heard frequently the Chinese argument that authoritarianism works better. And. They're building. High speed rail were giving up after spending a few billion dollars somewhere in Fresno. And. How how attractive is that in the world? And how true is it? First of all terrific to be here with you, Fred and to be here with Malcolm in and with Bob, first of all, I think Bob wrote a brilliant essay. And the reason that it it's an important essay is that it helps us understand that what we're experiencing now is not brand new, and it's not specific to the United States that this phenomena of liberal democracies? Clash with our -tarian ISM is happening all over the world. That's why we have Brexit three just asking for three months extension in hopes of getting something done. It's why we have a lot of dissension around the world. And although the Chinese as you say say that yes. Indeed. A we can get better transportation, we can reduce poverty in our country, which they have done as you. Well know nonetheless, it is a thorough -tarian ISM for whom it's certainly isn't the consent of the governed which. As part of our constitution and part of our declaration. It's certainly not about human rights because we know we are tremendously not only disenfranchised, but undergo hers in China. We know that it may not be a system that is hysterical over time except without big control. One of the big points in Bob's essay. That's very important is China is now going to be the owner of so much data about its people so much control through the internet so much control through technology that one of the great really talented, as we all have is wrapping our arms around technology because technology has been part of the disenfranchisement of people of folks feeling like they don't get their fair share of the world, and we need to master that. And make sure the technology is used as a democratic tool. Not as totalitarian tool. I think that's a huge point. And I wanna come back to it. But I want to take a slightly different aspect on technology and ask you a question bomb. I think a lot of people assumed I certainly did that authoritarians could take their country up to a certain point to middle income. They could Stalin could wrench. No matter of. Agriculture into building. Big steel factories by at some point if you wanted to really become a modern prosperous country. You had to have free needed a rule of law you needed to let your university students express their creativity you need people need to talk to each other and have newspapers. Was that wrong? Or is it wasn't right? But now it's wrong because somehow technology has changed the equation and allowed China to be both totalitarian and prosperous. I think I think it was hokey men who said about the French revolution. It's too soon to tell. I don't know. Whether we know yet, the only thing that we can be confident of is that expectations that for instance, in China, which we had I think ever since the sort of opening that Deng Xiaoping lead. We assumed that this opening would. The sort of interaction between politics and economics would gradually open up China, and eventually that may be true. But what we've seen actually has has not confirmed that that judgment and China has moved up the ladder of production. Very successfully they clearly have some of the best minds in the world working. They are competing with us on artificial intelligence, very effectively in what has increasingly closed political system. I mean, Xi Jinping has moved things in the other direction. So the only thing I can be confident of is that the faith that we use to have the sort of iron law that we believed existed in the relationship between liberal politics, and liberal economics is something that we can't have any faith in right now. Whether it eventually proves true, we just we'll just we'll find out. Don't count on it as an inevitable process. Well, and the other question, of course, is what happens in the interim. You know, it may be that one hundred years from now it will prove true. But what happens in those hundred years if we have an increasingly powerful, including economically, powerful and technologically powerful China still run by a very rigid. Kind of autocracy comments from Robert Kagan Brookings Institution foreign policy, senior fellow so still on the technology piece. And I think a lot of us also assumed and had a lot of wrong assumptions, obviously that the internet was going to be a force for freedom and would undermine dictators. Now as described in this article, it's it's being used for the perfection of dictatorship, and every authoritarian government. Has asked for may have aspirations to use social media to become a totalitarian government is that inevitable process. How can still possible? The technology could be a force for good. And how do you push back against that? I started with a hard question. No. I think that's an excellent question and the phrase there is force for good. When when Facebook and social media organizations like Twitter started out, they didn't intend to be evil. Right. But then again, you know, gunpowder wasn't intended to be evil either outcome NATs, former naval intelligence, I just moved that way until it perfected itself in dynamite and bullets social media as it was launched in those first waves in the Middle East in the revolution in Tunisia. Twenty ten and twenty seven in Egypt where Facebook and Twitter where these. Organizational and information dissemination tools, which allowed, you know, people who wanted democracy who wanted to spread the word of freedom and lot was really really powerful. And as you say, dictators, they're not fools. They pay attention to this as well. And in these dictatorships, they also saw that they themselves could identify all of their foes right down to the individual whether opponents down to the individual they could manipulate information to the point where as we saw on the twenty sixteen election. We saw organizations Mary netting as we call it in in the cyber warfare community where we're fake entities were actually pulling the puppet strings of individuals in making them organize for a purpose that they didn't intend to so they had no idea who they had no idea who was pulling the publishing I actually had an assassination. What we call an assassination bought come after myself. And MSNBC's host joy Reid. And pretend to be a US citizen in Denver in on an internet forum in San Diego, claiming that they should come to Pasadena to watch us be killed, but originated in Saint Petersburg Russia. When all was said and done autocrats as you say, and dictators, they know how to manipulate information. They know how to use intelligence, and they know how to break the will of individuals, and though we've taken this technology to express ourselves the freedom of speech itself is now a weapon system in the cyber war. It is no different than a cruise missile to certain to a certain extent. And it's the battle damage effects as we would call it in real warfare. Are that it smashes the psyche in two thousand sixteen? It wasn't the Democratic National Committee that was hacked. It was the mindset of the American public to the point where people who saw these platforms as hammers and anvils managed to forge a new alternate reality for one third of the population of the United States, and it is proven duro. So how can we defend against that? Well, for the most part, I think we're going to actually like the Washington Post transparency and awareness is easily the most the best anaesthetic for this. And and the best way to wipe up this mess, but then you have an adaptive enemy who's going to take that technology and move around. We've seen the Russians for example, have moved away from Boston this election cycle to humans to where they have task teams who will take that internet and actually interact on a real time. So. Let me pick up on and talking about the response to the cyber war. Are wearing is of this started while you were still in office. Of course, I think the answer that the best defense is to subscribe to the Washington Post is very. But beyond that. Are we what would we be doing? Now if we were responding as actively as we should. Maybe we are. And what's what defenses there? I think there's a whole cast a things that we ought to be doing and let me say in full disclosure. I did some work for one of the technology companies. That's trying to create cyber norms around the world. I think that the Obama administration certainly the Trump administration which seems to not be focused on this except by setting up a new command structure, but not really setting the rules of the road for cyber those rules of the road are quite critical. I think we need to start with civic education in our classrooms. We just heard general Allen talk about the importance of the constitution and the declaration. There's a reason why Hamilton the musical was so popular because it made real for people the possibility and the optimism and the the trajectory of who we are. And what we are about people are hungry for that. So I believe in civic education, cyber education, good, cyber hygiene, knowing what we. We do to protect ourselves. What we expect of our governments in terms of creating cyber norms and living by them working in alliances. I know that's a strange concept of these days to actually work with our friends and partners around the world to tackle these issues. But it does help us get to the right place. One of the I now as I said to you Fred teach at Harvard. I'm director of the center for public leadership, and we're trying to get young people to understand what it means to be an effective principal public leader and cyber and technology and the right? Use of technology is certainly part of that one last point Chris rubber show who teaches about ethics at Harvard. Kennedy School a wrote a piece some time ago about how liberal democracy needs a salesman. And if you go back to the declaration, which the general was talking about it says we hold these truths to be self evident. And we need to remain. Member that we believe these truths are self evident and former ambassador Wendy Sherman to claim them and fight for them. And make sure that we fight on behalf of all of the people in our country. Not just the one percent. On the response. I can see part of the message of your I read it is. These liberal values. Haven't always been self evident to everybody in any kind of goes, waxes and wanes and there have been other periods. When people lost confidence in them. And you don't offer much of a Mahar. We're gonna get out of that. Or how could it turn around? I mean, I guess last time was World War Two. But after a couple of decades of lack of confidence. How? How would a more confident country or confidential values be responding now? And do you see any possibility of how do you regain that momentum? I wrote ten thousand words, I couldn't ten thousand words on maybe trying to come up with some answers..

Mitchell wants to put the times on legal notice that they're violating the law by possessing publishing, the papers Nixon finally agrees as far as the concern their enemies. I think we just ought to do it in any way as rosy told me and Pentagon papers whistleblower, Daniel Ellsberg, the times was about to learn that they had the White House's full. Attention Monday stories came out and got some more attention, but the exploded when the Attorney General John Mitchell asked the times, not to publish how did he ask the it was a brief telegram in those days, and I happen to be in the room. We're all this stuff came in and teletype machine clocked. It's telex to punch Sulzberger telegram, basically, requesting ceasing publication because of national security and that was on Monday. If you go back and look at the third the one sorta ripped it off and ran happened to be there. I ran down to the foreign desk. This set off one of the fiercest debate that has probably ever happened inside a newsroom should the time. Stop or should they defy the attorney general of the United States. They needed to consult with publisher punch Sulzberger. But at that moment, he was on a plane to London all the editors went up to his office and kept the line open. And I was literally in the room because I had to hold the phone, which we're publish office on the eleventh floor at the time because they were waiting to see what he would do when you're actually there. Yeah. She's in the room and. Hearing this incredible discussion around what to do you? Remember anything is discussion. What I recall was a very intense argument. And I kept sitting there going. I can't believe I'm sitting here. I was twenty two years old. And I'm listening to listening to every day. And it was it was hot again and intense. The editors and the papers lawyers went back and forth. The attorney general's notes that they were violating the espionage act. That's serious stuff. We have the right to publish classified documents. What good is freedom of the press? We can't do this. Well, what good is freedom of the press at the FBI shuts us down. Are we going to take a financial hit? How much will it cost a fight this? What about our reputation is this worth it is the only time I've ever seen seeing that was out of the movies because they had to stop the, you know, wasn't clear what would happen. So they literally stopped the press. They did stuff. Well, they hadn't started. But they delayed them. Yeah. The paper's London bureau chief Tony Lewis was on the other end from a phone booth at the airport waiting snag the publisher as soon as he got in. And that's where one of the most important decisions in the history of journalism got made inside a phone booth at Heathrow, and they were waiting as the publisher what he wanted to do. And and he ordered. He said, that's publish the editors crowded into an elevator with Rosie to go. Tell the newsroom the times top editor with Abe Rosenthal. Who's no relation to Rosie Rosenthal. But Rosie's father who was a prominent journalism professor had actually gotten aid his first newspaper job and he's in the elevator. And he turns around and he looks at me. And he pokes me in the chest. And he goes don't ever repeat a word you heard tonight to a living person, not even your father. And and then he came down into the newsroom, and it was quite dramatic. And he put his hand up and said, we're gonna publish and there was literally a cheer. On Tuesday, Attorney General John Mitchell was done asking he went to court and got a temporary restraining order. The times was now officially banned from publishing the papers until a judge could decide on the case. The times announced they would abide by the temporary order and stopped publication. But Ellsberg now very much a wanted man wasn't done nothing in a temporary order said, another newspaper, couldn't publish the papers. So he leaked them. Again. This time to the Washington Post..

Are you able to make an interception and identification of a certain interest? I thought immediately it must be an SR seventy one otherwise he would have mentioned it. But at the time, I didn't know as the blackboard lacquered US Air Force, Major General John Williams salutes, the others the caption whence. The Swedish pilots intercepted the damage s are seventy one that is to render support to the aircraft by if defending it from potential third party aircraft that might have tried to threaten it according to the air the air medal citation.

However, he recorded message what which was played to those in attendance. And here's a quote, your obvious skills and judgment were definitely demonstrated on this. Are that fateful day many years ago? Wanna thank you for your actions Noll said, and it goes on. But anyway, very interesting story, and that's one of those things in the world of military aviation that a lot of the stuff that goes on is classified.

"So that they can fulfil their critical round the clock mission to protect the American people. I very much. Appreciate this opportunity to serve the nation and our men and women in uniform signed. General John Mattis? James mattis. Sorry, john. This is not this is not a departure that I think anybody's going to think is good idea. Well, maybe some people will. Mattis was one of those figures in the administration that people look to and said there's a steady hand there and somebody who really knows the job now. There are two point one five million service members. There are a lot of people out there with military skills and experience in this country and strategic wisdom knowledge that would be fantastic secretaries of defense. No question about it. And I have a lot of faith that President Trump for this role in particular will be sure to find someone who is an excellent pick. But this does come at a time when the opponents of this administration are going to pounce on this and say see even Mattis wasn't willing to stick it out. Even Mattis had had enough and that will cause some damage to the administration. It's not it's going to be something that I don't think stretches on for that long. But gave the political sensitivity of the moment right now with the shut down the wall, and they're Muller investigation grinding on. This is not a particularly helpful. Story for the administration that said I do have to just know as an aside that to do this to decide that you can no longer in good. You know? You know in good faith, align yourself with the policy the president. And just say I'm just going to step down, Mr President. Thank you so much for the honor and opportunity, and I'm gonna make sure there's a smooth transition to resign in this way is the honorable thing to do. And I can't remember the last time a spate cabinet level. Official. Did this? Began remember maybe with a with a scandal, but just just to offer resignation in this way because they disagree with the policy administration. So you know, Madison's a man of honor. And this was the honorable thing. He felt for him to do in the circumstances. Where does this go next? We'll have to see. But now the Syria decision has even more pressure on it. I'll go into detail about the pluses and minuses of pulling troops out of Siri in the next hour bureau pack, take.
