"Two books in the studio with me here. One is simply called some church as in Fort Sumpter, November 18 62 June 18 61 by George Paris. That, of course, reminds me of the Democrats because Democrats you know the South Carolina militia fired on Fort Sumpter starting the civil wars so the Democrats could keep their 3/5 of a person as slaves and The war to prevent Southern independence, also by George George Paris and those are stories of the Democrats. Those are That's really the birth of today's Democrat Party was the civil war against the United States of America and the first Republican president who had Democrat than assassinated by shooting him at the head. It was just minding his own business, watching a nice play at the Ford's Theater. But never mind all that. Uh And I tell you what, why? I said to Michael during the break and two victories that well, why did he just notified China? And why was it just China, and Michael said that we know of So what other enemies of the United States? Did he call and notify and say, Listen, I'm with you. I'm going to clue you in. I'm going to let you know this is all coming from a new book. Which boys some promotion they're getting. They're getting a lot of lot of lot of promotion for their new book. But the book is by Bob Woodward of Watergate fame. I think it's going to say that on his tombstone, it will say, uh, Bob Woodward probably won't say Robert, it will say, because that's how he's known. Bob Bennett wants to be famous. You know, postmortem as well. It will, say Bob Woodward comma of Watergate fame. That's what I'm saying is Tim Stone and another type of for the DNC by the name of Robert Costa. Robert cast a long time Washington Post reporter, and they have a new book, which is getting more promotion than ever. Any book ever. It's called Peril Peril. P R I l Uh, peril like we're in great peril because this one riot at the Capitol which went on for about two hours, and there was some people that were misbehaving and should be held accountable. Many of them are still in jail being held without bail. Some say as political prisoners given all the rioters that were just cotton released, uh, like we do along the border. At the riots in New York and Chicago and Washington, D C and the siege of the White House, which went on for days and injured more than 100 and 10 police officers the billions of dollars in damage. How many of those rioters were held in jail ad nauseam for months and months and months without bail? That was January 6th, right? It's now September 15th. Many of these people from the capital January 6th event are still in jail without bail. And tell you all the lot of the rioters that attacked police and stuff were released without bail on their own recognizance and Democrat City after Democrat City only to go out and commit more felonies. And none of that is a big deal. No book about that by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. Fascinating because they're Democrats first last and always, that's the most important thing. I'm that's what's going on with them now. Let's say we do have a sound bite. Let's go Where we going? We have President Trump. We have a lot of good stuff on this. I, uh so the the book they've got some interesting quotes. From General Milley, and this is an important question. You remember when Alexander Vin demon who betrayed his commander in chief and stabbed him in the front and stabbed him in the sits back and stabbed him in the side wearing as U. S Army uniform. He's got his twin brother and the media loved them. They adored them. They fluffed them. And, uh, Veneman told all this terrible call he had with the Ukrainian president asking him to look into the corruption of the Biden family, which is flagrant and global. And the media was very, very upset that the president would ask the Ukrainian president, President Trump would ask the Ukrainian president about the Hey, How's that investigation going until all the corruption involving the Biden family which should be ongoing here, too? And maybe Woodward and cost a should be working on that? Because there's a lot of corruption in the Biden family, from Moscow to Kiev to Beijing and beyond. And then, of course, the art world the greatest scam in the history of scams. Isn't it amazing? But the the process turned up a transcript. You may recall of President Trump's conversation with the Ukrainian president whose name eludes me at the moment, and, um And we do we have a transcript of General Millie's call with with General Lee. All and also earlier I said Daisy Mae from the Dukes of Hazzard. I've got to admit I never actually watched the TV show The Dukes of has a few minutes, but you know, just for its Daisy Duke. It stays you do because any school child knows not Daisy Mae that's from a comic strip or something. But Daisy Duke, Catherine Bach. I think she used to live in Santa Barbara. When I lived in Santa Barbara did have a sightings every now and then, and there were noteworthy, but that's that's another discussion for another day. And yet Daisy Duke, because when General Milley calls his pal generally and China, you know this is what the phone sounds like. Sounds like Better than not done it. And I'm gonna, uh, hey, General Lee's on the phone. He's got a special ring tone for when General Lee calls It's like the hot line and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Office. Hey, there's General Lee say, That's how they know it's generally that's his his hotline with China. Apparently, he's got his own hotline, but I want to know if there's a transcript of this phone call the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and his buddy General Lee And I also want to know Michael Pearce. He raises the question. How do we know that he didn't call and we're talking about this this morning. How do we know he didn't call Putin or Putin's commanding general? Did he called Israel saying, you know? Hey, we're worried President Trump is going to nuclear ran Did that happen? Maybe he called Iran. Maybe he called the Ayatollahs. You know, I guess General Sulamani was dead by then. So he couldn't do that. Um, unless he's got a very special hotline because President Trump put a you know, A bomb up is Yang Yang very appropriately, and the Democrats were opposed to that. And Joe Biden was opposed that It's pretty much favor our enemies..

"Where this show is going to lead because that's the excitement of talk radio watching this morning. What's happening in Afghanistan is frightening. I don't know what the hell is going to happen. No one could have acted more incompetently. And the by administration with Camilla Harrison for those who say Hey, get rid of Joe Biden. Come on, ain't going to happen. Nobody would support that. It would admit that what they did in the selection process year ago was a fraud that Joe Biden is not mentally or physically capable of doing the job. He has no schedule that he keeps. He reads a teleprompter poorly. And he's in charge. He's the commander in chief. Which is even more frightening. We have nobody in charge, and Kamala Harris would become the president. Are you kidding me? The cackles enough to disqualifier and then behind her as Nancy Pelosi, and behind her is a Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont. So we want none of that to happen. We have to get through the next 41 months with this decision maker, not existing. And when the leaders of great Britain say that Joe Biden's decisions are imbecilic You know, it's serious. It's a problem. He has no clue what's going on. He says. Things that aren't accurate and he has no capability of leading anywhere. He ought to just come on TV with a teleprompter. Turn it around like you, and I read the teleprompter that he's reading. You can't answer questions. Hurricane Kamala Harris. So at this point, God, I just hope the Americans get out and our partners the Afghans can get out. Who assisted us for the last 20 years. You might recall in the last 20 months, not one American has been killed in Afghanistan in battle zero None. Have been some traffic accidents and there was a helicopter crash. Mechanical problems, but nonetheless after the conversation that Trumpster ahead with the Taliban when he almost invited them, the White House has, uh, still things the last 20 months, he told the Taliban. We know where you are right now. There's drones overhead. I could give the order and you all would get to the temperature of 1500 degrees in the next two or three seconds. In other words, we know where you are. We're going to kill you. And if you don't think I can do it talked to General Sulamani. The Iranian general. It was rolling around Iraq. They tracked him down. Traced him put a laser on him and he was dead. He got to 1500 degrees in about half a second. That's a bad temperature for a human being. So he's telling the Taliban If you mess with us, we're going to kill you. And arrange that meeting with those 72 vestal virgins in heaven for you, So we got a president now they can't do that doesn't know as is clueless. He reads a teleprompter, and that's it. And it was elected. We had a choice of bad tweets or bad policies. Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana. We voted for bad tweets. We wanted to keep the Trumpster. But then other states allegedly voted for Biden and we've got bad policy. I do blame the Trumpster a little bit. He could have played the game. He could have not insulted. So many people. It could have used better language didn't have to put out so many bad tweets. But, dammit! His policies have worked. They did work on the southern border. They work with job creation. They worked internationally. Hell, you might recall that Iranian shot down a drone and the generals you know the generals The Mark Millie's etcetera, the general said. Attack Iran attack Iran and the president gave preliminary go ahead, get it ready, and then I'll decide. So then they finally came to him. The president said. You know what? We're not gonna do that. We're not going to attack Iran. You know, he said nobody was dead. I don't want to go to another war. The generals are in the war business. What they want is endless wars such as an Afghanistan that general is one of us to attack, attack Iran and start a war with Iran. Mind and the Democrats were pushing Trump. You might recall at the time. Yeah, yeah, Attack Iran. We got words going in Iraq and Afghanistan. Go after Iran while you're at it. Are you kidding me? That's what the generals wanted. That's what the Democrats wanted. The president, Trump said. You know what? We're not gonna do that. We're not gonna do that. And so we were a relative peace. We were energy independent. We had a southern border admitting 11,000 illegals a month. Now it's 211,000 month. Will be two million this year, more than half have covid 19 or the Delta variant. We got all hell breaking loose everywhere. It's as bad we have no leadership. We got nothing. The generals demand war. You know, the generals are the ones who said Let's teacher CRT. We gotta teach CRT. We've got to go after critical race theory in the academy's stand down, you might recall the The president ordered the military about 67 months ago to stand down for 24 hours of indoctrination. We got to talk about climate change. Got talking about climate change, change, specialist and climate change. Mitigators and transgender question. Ask of General Milley. Are you ready for Marines who go from a woman to a man? To become pregnant. They become makes it become a birthing person, not a mother, but a birthing. And then the general went through all the steps in place when someone goes transgender, and they get pregnant as a man. That were it was a woman, the psychological and physical. I'm look at all this crap and I'm thinking Are you kidding me? You got to review what General Douglas MacArthur said in 1964. When he got says, say, a reward about duty, honor and country the role of the military. Right now. We don't win anything. We we fight wars. We have maybe a stalemate. If we're lucky, like in Korea, Otherwise we simply lose wars. Whether it's Vietnam, whether it's Iraq or whether it's Afghanistan. We fight and lose cost serious lives. Tens of thousands of American dead soldiers kill a couple of million of civilians. Now, at the end of day we simply come home happened in Afghanistan, 1975. Happen in Iraq. What's happening in Iraq now is a joke. And now now it's happened in Afghanistan. 20 years we were there. And we tried to impose and Mr Rogers in the neighborhood approach Friends TV series to Afghanistan. We tried it in Vietnam. And we tried it in Iraq. All of it. None of it worked. We don't win anything. If you're the communist, Red Chinese, and you take a look at what we did in Afghanistan. Do you fear the American military after that? We got a bunch of seventh century illiterate goat herders that stood down the United States military and they won. No. They were telling us now on 9 11. They're going to have a celebration. Make sure the Al Qaeda and the Taliban flag is waving over air Force bases, American Air Force bases and over the consulate. The embassy In Kabul and they're going to celebrate 20 years that the infidel has been defeated. That's what they're after, so we're going to go home. I'm looking last night at the Marine Times, a publication in the United States Marine Corps. And they have Taliban. Criminals wearing American military uniforms simulating The raising of the American flag and and Hiroshima. Mount Sarah Bacci..

"To the New week on the big Show Our Big three stories. The article of Impeachment against Donald Trump will be sent from the house to the Senate today. The trial, though, will not begin until February, the knife and if you're wondering why he's being Impeached Well, we'll leave that to Chuck Schumer. Senators will have to decide If they believe Donald, John Donald John Trump. Incited the erection. Well, that's an important thing to the side and hopefully the red it up the flagpole, and that's what killed the son. Also in the Big Three. What else is new Tom Brady's in the Super Bowl for the 10th time. This one is a member of Tampa Bay, and the game is in Tampa Bay. That's never happened before. The Buccaneers will be hosting the champion Kansas City Chiefs in two weeks and rounding out the Big Three We lost a couple of legends 87 year old broadcaster Larry King. Larry had been hospitalized with covert. And one of baseball's all time great players and people. Hank Aaron, he was 86. No cause of death was given well. Ironically, he had taken the covert vaccine a few weeks ago. So People are hoping there's no connection there. But sad, Michael, you know, I knew both of them and you have the lights go out one by one, and you know, it's just you wake up and you say Well, Who's next? I mean, they've been 10 Baseball Hall of Famer since April, some big names like Tom Seaver and Whitey Ford and Bob Gibson. And I know all these people. I was just this. It really hurts. It really does. While I lost another friend over the weekend, Bob Avian, who co created a chorus line with Michael Bennett, and he choreographed Sunset Boulevard and a whole bunch of Broadway shows great guy Terrific guy on guy. He's gone now, too. So what's happened? All right. Let's welcome into the show. Jeffrey, look been the colorful defense attorney always speaks. What's on his mind? I have a new rule. Jeffrey. You wanna hear my new rule? Do I have to know? I guess I do not come on the show. So yes, of course. Yes. Good morning. Here. Here's my rule. You can't go off on your little jokes about. Biden has dementia. By needs oatmeal. Biden is cognitively impaired. I mean, you really have to come up with some new material. I just don't think that's fair. He doesn't eat oatmeal. He has oatmeal for brains, but go ahead. I don't want this. I want to straighten that out. All right. So what do you think of the administration so far, Jeff? Well, you know, I think that once you're in charge, I think all of a sudden it becomes a little harder to throw. You know, with rocks from the side, and I think Biden is learning that now The supporters are He comes in and says, Look, I've got a plan to handle this virus. I've got a plan and trump dozens, and then he comes in. And what is his plan? Where a mask for 100 days He tells us that There's nothing he can do to change the trajectory of the covert virus, which is exactly the opposite of what he told us. He was running for president. He then told us that he would have 100 million Americans vaccinated. 100 days. Well, guess what the day before he became president. 1.6 million Americans got the first jab. So he's saying things that all of a sudden don't make a lot of sense. And I think that The American public. All of a sudden is realizing well, you know Trump was a complete and utter lunatic and a disaster in so many ways, But there's a reason why Joe by and ran for president. Seemingly every election cycle since, like 1948, and never really had any traction. There's a reason and now they're starting to understand why so, look, I'm open. Giving him a shot because I think all Americans have two regardless of the party. I know that's painful, but just look, we can't just hope for the guy to fail. Because then we become in my mind. We become the far left who are actually openly rooting for Iran against America. So you know they do They do. Oh, absolutely that you don't think they do. Lend. You don't think that the far left roots for you Don't think they were pissed. When General Sulamani was assassinated. They were seriously No. Okay, well, they might wrote Well, they might not have liked the tactics, but they're not rooting for Iran to beat the United States. That's slander. Lana, Jeff, Lynne and Jeffrey, I think you're gonna agree with agree with me on this one. What they're rooting for land is for Iran to bomb the crap out of Israel because they despise Israel. Course. Well, it's not even a question about that. Maybe I'll just shoot him for the next segment, because this is just the silly stuff. But no, it's Z good stuff. One is a reason why people love this segment, and it's because I'm telling the truth,.

"This'd is this Saturday morning Update on W m A l We are at 7 36, and we're joined by Lieutenant Colonel Tony Schaper. He is the president of the London Center for Policy Research and Is also the author of Operation Dark Heart, Tony. Good Morning. Hey, Good morning, Rick. Great to be on. Thanks for having me. Alright, good to have you with us now. During the holiday week we dispatched B 52 bombers over Iran and Iran responded by saying it was a pretext for war. And then there was some disturbing news this morning. That's being associate ID being reported by The Associated Press about some developments with the Iranian Nuclear program. And if you could run down what we're hearing this morning and what it means, so the Iranians have essential leaked a memo saying they're going to the continue to expect end and they're making her program to include raising the enrichment levels. 20%, which is not quite weapons grade, but getting much closer. Let's talk about doing in a place called proto, which is also by chance of character in the Star Wars universe, which is bizarre, But it is also the name of the town. The facility where they're doing this in Iran, and what we know based on their own admission is that they feel that this is broken a big finger on the trigger. This is their bellicose language, not ours. Talking about how they feel obligated to cook will continue develop their nuclear program and direction of essentially creating use these enrichments for purposes of weaponization. So it's Zumba that President Trump has talked about the Iranians want to do. And I think that's reason. Last week we saw the uptick in military action, the show of force. We did to make sure that they understood that there's things like this, that the United States air going to be very reluctant to accept and then anything else they may do regarding terrorist actions or the provocative actions within the region. So that's That's kind of a situation is visit at this moment. And we're just about on the one year anniversary of the death of General Sulamani when we took him out last year. Typically, we were concerned about retaliatory actions they terrorists seemed to Take anniversaries and kind of work with anniversaries. We concerned about any possible initiation from Iran on that. Absolutely. I think that's another reason for the show of force, You know, B 50 two's in the region and other things that we've done to raise our military posture there and after right after the event after the ceremony attack while he was in Iraq, not in Iran, Iran during the attack, that's where anyone is supposed to be there. There was concern right after that there would be a service of attacks and terror incidents from by the Iranians it has not did not happen with that said there's always a dip possibility. They may be planning something now. So at this point, I think the United States posture allied as much higher than normal in the region, anticipation of them attempting something. And what would you tell somebody on the Biden transition team on the national Security side? What would you warn them right now about Iran? Well, it's clear that the Iranians have very isn't very clear goal of establishing a nuclear weapons program. One that I would argue they've never stepped away from even when they signed on to the quote unquote Iran Nuclear deal, Esso. I think the Vibe administration would do well to continue the president Trump effort to seek Bilateral agreements with the Iranians. Having I'm sorry with the Israelis and our Arab allies and make sure that the Iranians air continued to be observed readily for purposes of Nuclear program, and I'll say this is going to get me in trouble. But I think we shouldn't continue to encourage that. The true democracy movement, the green movement within Iran, I would argue record a democracy run by Persian people aversion people would be a lot less act apt to be a question to to Redl competitors. You're working on something at the London center that I think very important, and people may not kind of realize what's going on here. You're working on avatars and avatar means a lot of different things to a lot of different people and primarily the film. But what does it mean for us and what you're working on? So Yeah, Ambassador and Cooper, one of our board members on your fellow just working with us on a number of issues relating to technology. Now you may think this is a bit weird, but we're looking at bulk power at look. Electromagnetic pulse and how our entire society right now is linked to the Internet. Everything is digitized. And when you look at digitization one step further. You start looking at the fact that he bei Amazon. All these large corporations collect huge amounts of data on every individual and they use this Rick for purposes of Creating essentially a virtual you would have it. Or if you will, that they maintain. They use that avatar to get you to, you know, to buy things If you're talking about lyric, Haven's caverns, your technology over here is the next thing. You know you're getting ads for literary caverns on your phone. People do this all the time. But what we don't understand is what Data, what they what they actually have and what they use with that used for that beyond simply trying to market to you. And this is what we're concerned about. The Europeans have much better laws regarding the requirement of disclosure of information they have these big corporations have on you and are concerned. Very simple is this If the company's air creating copies of you virtual copies. Why don't you know why don't we have access to whatever that Davis and there's a lot of this gets buried in those user agreements. We all sign inadvertently when we signed up to things, but the problem is, if we still don't know we don't know what could be done. By a foreign adversary or a month domestic adversary If they want to use these avatars to not market to you, but manipulation to use psychological operations standard psychological operations on you. This is something we're gonna be looking at as of London center this coming here, So we have like HIPPA laws to protect medical information, And that's that's a different element. But at the same time there are privacy laws. Out there. What would it take? And A T. This point is, is the barn door really open? And would it matter at this point, even if they did crack down? Well, I think it's more about what they have and how they use it again..

The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell

Trump was reportedly given a 'menu' of options for the Iran strike that included ships, missile facilities, and militia groups

"Have woken up to a more dangerous work. That is what a French government official told The Washington Post about president. Trump's trump's choice of the most extreme option presented to him to deal with Iran's aggressions in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East that extreme option was of course the killing of Iran's top military commander journal Sulejmani last week a team of New York Times reports using sources inside the trump administration reported on on the options presented to the president. This way the options included strikes on Iranian ships or missile facilities or against iranian-backed militia groups in Iraq the Pentagon also oh tacked on the choice of targeting General Sulamani mainly to make other options seem reasonable when Mr Trump chose the option of killing killing General Sulamani top military officials flabbergasted. Were immediately alarmed about the prospect of Iranian retaliatory strikes on American troops in the region The Times reports that the execution of the plan to kill the general depended entirely on who might greet the general when he arrived at Baghdad or airport. If General Sulejmani had been met by an Iraqi government official or someone else who the United States was unwilling to kill General Sulejmani would be alive today. Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo was not one of the trump administration officials who was flabbergasted. By the President's decision to kill General Sulejmani The Washington Post reports that Mike Pompeo had been urging the president to kill General Sulejmani for months. Sanitary Pompeo did a victory lap. On Sunday morning. Television television saying quote we took a bad guy off the battlefield. We made the right decision. I'm proud of the effort that president trump undertook. Someone else who wasn't wasn't flabbergasted is Donald Trump's former national security adviser John Bolton. He tweeted his congratulations. Congratulations on the killing of General Selemani. But unlike Mike Pompeo John Bolton refused to name president trump as the person responsible for the killing John. Bolton's tweet simply said congratulations to all involved in eliminating some Sola money. Hope this is the first step in regime change in Tehran. Warhawks hawks like John Bolton frequently. Try to avoid the real language of what they advocate so they like to use words like eliminating when they mean killing and regime change when they mean all out war. No one is more aggressive toward Iran than John Bolton and it may be the John Bolton is now so confident that Donald Donald Trump has now put the United States on an irreversible path to all war with Iran the John Bolton no longer needs Donald trump in the White House especially with the Washington Post reporting that Vice President Mike Pence was also urging the killing of General Sulejmani along with Secretary the State Pompeo because today of all days as the situation got worse and worse for the United States in Iraq with the Iraqi parliament having voted one hundred seventy two zero to expel the American military and American government officials from Iraq. Today of all days is the day that John Bolton decided added to publicly announce in writing on his website that he is ready willing and able to testify in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump in the United States set quote. I have concluded that if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony I am prepared to testify now. You can believe in in coincidence cements. We've all seen instances of it in our own lives. John Bolton doesn't do coincidence John Bolton does calculation and John Bolton calculated the worst thing he could possibly do to Donald Trump. Today is say I am prepared to testify and John Bolton and did that no one has dreamed of war with Iran and regime change in Iran more fervently John Bolton and the reward the the John Bolton gave the present today who has brought us closer to that war than any previous president was the announcement. I am prepared to testify testify in the impeachment trial of that president. Does that mean now. That war with Iran is simmering. John Bolton wants the steady steady your hand of Mike Pence at the controls John Bolton doesn't want a rerun of the time when president trump called off an attack on Iran ten minutes before scheduled. It'll take place. John Bolton doesn't WanNa President tweeting that he will commit war crimes by bombing non military sites in Iran including cultural sites. John Bolton wants war with with Iran done right. If it's going to be done he wants it. Done Pompeo and pence style and the Obama White House. Susan Rice was the president's National National Security Adviser the same job John Bolton hat and the trump White House and op ed piece for the New York Times. She writes Donald. Trump's action against around quote now locks our two countries in dangerous escalatory cycle but will likely lead to wider warfare. Americans are not safer. American citizens are at greater risk of attack across a far wider battlefield than before. It's hard to envision how this ends ends short of war leading off our discussion tonight. Is Susan Rice. Who served as President Obama's national security advisor after serving as President Alabama's ambassador to the United Nations? She used the author of tough love. My story of things worth fighting for Susan Rice. Thank you very much for joining us. Really appreciate it it I want to go first of all to this tweet. That the president put out where he basically said basically committed the United States committing war-crimes attacking cultural sites saying there are fifty two targets and that number was chosen simply for symbolic purposes Not necessarily military tactical purposes of your in. Mike Pompeo now trying to walk that back and say we won't do that. Administration officials saying. We won't do that. The commander in chief has said we will well Lawrence. It's very disconcerting to say the least when the president of the United States is publicly and recklessly threatening to commit war crimes and I should hope that saying our heads would prevail that in in the State Department certainly in the Defense Department that they understand what the laws of war are what our domestic law also requires and and would refuse to execute an order that was in stark violation of international and domestic law. War So I'm mm is hard as it is to swallow some of the the rank craziness that comes out of the president's twitter feed their. At least I think it would be a very difficult thing for the president to execute assuming that the leadership that that is even now in the Pentagon has its its own. Say What would you be looking for. I know the OP ed piece. You wrote is not autumn optimistic one But if you were looking for signs of that. The trump administration is capable of steering away from war. Here her. What would you need to see them do? Well I think. In the first instance we would need actually to see efforts by the administration ministration to de-escalate you had mike pompeo blanket. The Sunday shows and claim that this was all about deescalation. And you had the president earlier. You're saying this was about stopping the war. And in the same moment the president you know issues as extraordinary threat to retaliate against fifty two sites including cultural sites. He's now threatened Iraq with sanctions which is even more mind. Boggling in some ways because the Iraqis are threatening to throw the United States out of Iraqi territory and so frankly eh you know. It's very hard to understand what to expect out of this This crew I want to go to the announcement that Iran made aide about the nuclear deal. What they're what they now intend to do in that arena? It seems a little more complicated than is generally being recorded. I want to read the the near the Washington Post text on this says Iran announced over the weekend that it would no longer respect limits set. On how many centrifuges it can use to enrich uranium Iranian. Foreign Minister said the move was a remedial step but taken within the framework of the nuclear deal and he said that it could and be reversed I heard of commenters on the BBC Today. Also being more optimistic British observers more. We're optimistic about the possibility of salvaging the deal of especially for example if a new president is inaugurated a year from now. Well I'm not L.. optimimistic I think this really might have been the the last blow to the Iran nuclear deal but it was an interestingly crafted statement on the part of the Iranians Arabians. It said they would no longer be constrained by any of the restrictions that they adhered to in the context of the nuclear program and that can be interpreted win and then a number of ways and they said that would sanctions be removed and the United States come back into compliance that they would be prepared themselves to come back into compliance so that could be construed as a potential off ramp but given everything else. That's going on given president. Trump's extraordinary INARI disdain for the nuclear deal given the crippling sanctions that have been imposed in now this latest escalation by killing Sulamani. It's it's hard hard to see how that happens in the near term of course is very hard to in this world. Is You know to have any prediction about where we'll be a year from now and so I'm not I'm not gonNA jump off that cliff of the New York Times kind of backstage reporting at the White House indicates that the options that were given the president in this case case included the options of killing the general only to make the other options. Look better and look more reasonable. Did you present options is to President Obama that way and include one that you firmly believed should not be an option but did it just to steer him in another direction no lawrence. I didn't and I don't believe the Pentagon did you know.
