Rudy Atallah on Evacuating Americans From Afghanistan
"Is he so cold and callous in stubborn. I found the answer today. I think it was reported by richard. Holbrooke it was in. Richard holbrook's diary. He was the special envoy to afghanistan into pakistan and the obama administration. The atlantic reported a revelation from his diary about joe biden. This was back in two thousand ten. According to holbrooke diary when he was asked about he asked about. American obligations to afghans like the girls and the kabul school biden replied with a history lesson. Saying this f. that we don't have to worry about that. We did in vietnam nixon and kissinger got away with it. This is from a credible person. In the obama administration that was two thousand ten and now these remarks we hear until twenty twenty unacceptable. The late richard hall Saying that biden back then said f those people we can just screw them over like we did. In in in in vietnam between eleven and forty thousand american stock in afghanistan. And we're being told by the retired fullest. I'll general who happens to be the secretary of defense that we don't have the capabilities to evacuate them when at the same time rudy. We're hearing that the british with a much smaller armed force a much smaller army is actually rescuing not only their own citizens rudy there. Rescuing the irish citizen to stop there. So can you give us. I'm not talking about politics. Can you give us some factual basis for one. America can cannot do. I mean we. We can definitely evacuate all these people. It's it's the. The problem is as a priority normally. When you do noncombatant evacuations or nieto's. I've done several of them You you delegate. Dod and you give them the free license to to set up and stage for for the box And we've got enough knowledge of afghanistan of dirt fields. runways locations threats. All that stuff is out there for us and we can. We can definitely leverage our capabilities And do it. The problem we have with this current administration is instead of giving dot the priority to do the evacuation. They've turned that priority over to the state department which is not equipped at all to essentially run a neo. And that's why we're having this discombobulated evacuation it's

"That was making the rounds yesterday. That is shocking zip picture of man's legs from underneath the wheel well of a plane. Sabina american jet. Hey they're above the cloud line. There are thousands of feet high. This person grabbed onto the wheel. Well of plane and attempt to escape. We already know going politico. That one man. His body was found mangled in the wheel. Well of an american c seventeen eight. Okay and desperation takes in order to do that. Some pretty significant desperation. The taliban has been shooting at afghans near the airports. Anybody who is attempting to escape taliban shooting. Joe biden decided. It'd be a good idea in the country back over to these people visit. This would be a great idea. All it took was maintaining a bare bones. True presents two thousand five hundred troops in a support capacity fixing airplanes and he decided not worth it. Let's leave these barbarians in charge of a country of thirty eight million people. Probably that will provide no threat to the united states in terms of an uptick in terror threat and by the way subjecting thirty eight million people to the predations of some of the worst people on planet earth. There was a time by the way. When joe biden who's now ardently against nation building. He said there was an alternative to nation building. Since two thousand three in some parts administration nation building is still a dirty phrase but the alternative nation building is chaos chaos said churns out bloodthirsty warlords drug traffickers and terrorist. And we have. We've seen it happened in afghanistan. Before and i am quite frank fearful. It may happen again. Just stem yeah. Well he's changed his tune somewhat by two thousand ten by the way this is. What's amazing when you look to your politicians for empathy. You're looking in the wrong place. You're looking in their own place. It is stupid to look to your politicians for empathy. I don't first of all. I don't think the politicians should operate on the basis of empathy. I think they should operate on the basis of rational calculation. I don't think joe biden either. I don't he operates on the basis of empathy or on the basis of rational calculation. But just to remind you for all those people who believe that joe biden is a kindly old grandfather figure. Here's what joe biden. Had to say in two thousand ten about pulling out of afghanistan. So richard holbrooke had richard holbrooke was special envoy from the obama administration to afghanistan and pakistan and holbrooke ask biden about america's to maintain presence in afghanistan to protect vulnerable civilians. And here is what biden responded f that we'll have to worry about that we didn't in vietnam nixon and kissinger got away with it. F- that well men is true to his word. F that an f. Those people by the way again our weaponries now in the hands of these barbarians. According to jake sullivan the national security adviser who did just a cataclysmic lee bad performance yesterday in front of the press. I mean this is just a catastrophe in terms of public relations. National security advisor. Jake sullivan rhodes scholar genius. All the way around obama holdover he says oh. Yeah by the way. Billions of dollars. Our weaponry is now. In the hands of the taliban millions of dollars worth of the left and alabama. We don't have a complete picture. Obviously of where every article defense materials has gone but certainly a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the taliban and Obviously we don't have a sense that they are going to readily handed over to us at the airport..

B. I. gotta be meet in a garage with an employee with a reporter that's not the you know that sort of violates the FBI code because it seems like you're now no longer independent the whole idea she wanted to preserve it the F. B. I.'s independence and now it's gonna look like if anybody knew it looks like he's not independent because he's talking to a reporter and the reason I was talking to reporters explained was a very good reason was to keep the bureau incorruptible so the sort of thing the funny thing about that the the what do you what have you because I'm searching for the right word what but in so doing he would look like he's not being it and so he was very upset the Woodward email with that character so in his own heart of hearts he thought what he did was right he might tell Holbrooke but at the same time he would very strongly denied anything everybody brought it up for thirty years until I saw you strongly denied to his family every time that he was the hero and his family did not think he was deep throat until I started questioning that day and they saw him so the light up as it were or I would say milk when I started talking about the heroism of the throat that's when the first new so he was very much divided character on that because of the F. B. I.'s image now in that regard he did not give what whatever permission out mark when he died that's something that would work came up with so one of the things I told mark was what mark you better come out now while you're alive because Woodbridge RD told everybody but he's going to help you when you're dead now do you wanna help me tell you that tell the story your story while you're alive pretty well over to tell when you're dead how about that in in other words I did not know what the deal was frankly and I go through this in my book because mark can't remember the deal I didn't know if he had been paid by would work for the ability to portray in this deep throat I did not know that I just knew that he was it and and a lot of this from what we're told book but he was very upset when we're trying to get him to come out so so it's a very interesting situation is all I will say that and yeah he was very happy at the end of the day that he came out he he was able to enjoy this time with his family and get some public public adulation for the one of the major premises of the book post gate how The Washington Post betray Deep Throat covered up Watergate and began today's partisan advocacy journalism The Washington Post covered up Watergate explain well done as you and I've talked before Watergate was a very interesting exciting sensational one ring circus we're we talked about the White House covering up cover up of recovery and that's what the Senate investigation focused on with what we're reporting the post reported yep this I note in my book it was really a three ring circus circus in the post with with help from its reading audience get concealed suppressed many important facts much evidence that the court of public opinion should've heard so that the public could will briefly see what happened here was a very much more interesting and intriguing tail then simply somebody stupidly eavesdropping on their electoral opponents which was the story but that wasn't the story at all and I explained it in my book it made no sense it never makes sense at the time in people of always come up with the silly reasons as to why Nixon look one of wire tapping the Watergate he didn't he didn't know about it John Mitchell please note this was going on some lower level guys did but as I talk about the book this is basically the CIA operation if the poster revealed what he knew about the CIA sort of invade the wing White House lieutenants into doing this stupid thing they also would have outed the DNC because what they were really listening to when I go through in the book they were listening to shall we say not a talk between men and women out of town then the president that the entry or heard down the street to the nice young ladies who like to go out with men with money and that's what they were listening the C. I. A. had a long history of doing this however yeah in other words wiretapping important people who work in the throes of sex for extortion purposes and also for their mind control research they've been doing it for years they did it here in San Francisco starting in the fifties they had a an apartment right near an apartment I used to live in where they would bring in prostitutes and and then somebody would walk through two way mirror it recording they might drug but unfortunately everything the C.

"I think we'll we'll subtitle this first segment oil oil everywhere and not a drop to drink it is Holbrooke you know I've traded stocks for twenty five years been training students for the last eleven or twelve in this Monday was yeah all about oil something I had never ever ever seen before and that's when the basically to make contracts for those that were looking to purchase oil mate went from oil being asset to the end of the trading day it was a liability to the point people were paying other people to come and get this oil off my hands thank heaven junk in the front yard you gotta call the judge people still get only two hundred got got got it that is exactly what it was please come and take a step away from me in the reserve bank I mean we globally your Gary Jeff we were using a hundred million barrels a day you know basically round numbers were down to twenty eight twenty nine million a day right now so when you see that kind of precipitous drop in the production level cuts have been very slow it is easy to see why we filled up every storage container ships off the coast that they're paying what a hundred grand a day to park and just to be sitting there with fuel as far as oil it's it's it's everywhere and that's one of the reasons that you know the gas prices are dropping and you're seeing so many things around the world and also one of the reasons the economy is hurting as it is yeah well I and I was thinking to and and I did this as a service because I thought this would be a great public service of more people had joined me today and taken my ride on because this is Earth Day all right and I I heard earth earth day today so I thought you know no better way to celebrate Earth Day then getting out in my car for some asphalt therapy intake and meaningless ride just to burn some fossil fuels and increase my carbon footprint I feel like I was doing my best to help Jack those prices back up but I think if more people were really not only eco friendly but also economy friendly they would take it now that the price is so cheap on gas I mean it's really not going to blow your budget if you go out and drive for an hour or two not at all factors think the best headline I saw was the one as it barrels of oil are going to show up at the convenience stores next to the potato chips and that may be the case with the way things are going but it's also the reason I get so I shouldn't be ticked off I shouldn't be surprised but when when we have you know representative Alexander Cortez tweeting immediately on Monday that you know okay doing doing a happy dance all my gosh she says that she absolutely loves to see it and I'm thinking you don't don't you know that there's millions of jobs connected with this industry and the third livelihoods that are being lost we you know professionally because of this in here like dancing on somebody's grave it just you know it shouldn't surprise me when she does what she does but it still surprises me because I would think even in that moment somebody around you would tell you to keep your mouth shut well when you come from such a privileged background as she did she pretend she's Jenny from the block when she's sandy because the from Westchester who went to like I said a a meaningless private liberal arts college college and got a meaningless degree except that she was adept at being a politically savvy I guess right place right time low voter turnout I mean if people actually knew how a leaders her background was they would just laugh at everything she says they they they work absolutely and it you know they have when we were going through the the stuff that we had it Monday into Tuesday we have a lot of emails I was getting was asking Hey you know I I thought we were seeing production cuts from OPEC and others and and my reply was we'll recognize how upset a lot of these countries and regions of the world war when we turn the corner became energy dependence we have the oil shale we had so many different things being produced we were at a point right then were we were exporting more oil than we are importing and that really bothered a lot of people around the world so when this happens in our economy basically get shut down thank you if we start seeing this surplus of oil because you know the airline industry shut down ninety six percent or so their operation and all the businesses across the country and all the people connected with it yeah hi there in absolutely no hurry Saudi Arabia Russia and others to really cut the production levels too much because they know this is hurting American academy and they recognize there's gonna be a lot of oil related companies that are not gonna be able survive this the smaller ones especially it is a result of them Russia Saudi Arabian others are gonna come out stronger on the other side of this then a lot of American companies and my friend just said that to one of the many low the growing list of casualties because of this account economic shutdown right and it's it's going to take literally months for an industry like the airlines and hotels any kind of hospitality and the oil industry to recover from this a well packed delta airlines said today when their earnings came out they were ugly that it's going to take them two to three years to recover well we'll crisis in the past have led to a lot of the smaller guys being cut out of the business so I guess it's just another example of you know if you're Exxon Mobil it hurts a lot but if you were a wildcatter or if you're somebody who is a a smaller oil company this is this is like a death knell for you I mean how are you going to make it and it's get all the other question is people are saying Hey you know airlines or oil stocks would be great to jump into well the airline industry can take a while so I'd be really really patient about chasing an airline stocks and really last month around the fifteenth sixteenth of March was kind of a time to jump into an Exxon or chevron because Exxon you know it was trading at a point where he was down about half from seventy to eighty dollars to the forty two it's abnormality dropped all the way to thirty so there's a lot of oil prices actually been recovering over the last several weeks but I suspect that they they could see another dip because again it oil the oil related companies are only going to respond as quickly as is the Conyers turned around now if efforts like George and others around the country allow us to start seeing some of the economic engine fire back up you know I I suspect you know barring a god forbid some sort of a second round that moral ordered into our homes again that you know we could start seeing the recovery sooner than later yeah I think probably the thing that I find the most ironic about all of this is that the president's president trump he's not had shall we say the most favorable outlook compare chairman Jerome Powell they they have their their moment fourth he tweets zero Mr pals you know the gentleman is he if he just doesn't seem to respond too much but the fed chair through all of this crisis has come out with some things that not only have never been thought of before but I've never been tried before and it when you think about this the way that the drone pal who comes from a hedge fund or a a business background versus all the other dentures for the last thirty years there were the intellectual eggheads from universities in different you know the training it drunk pals doing some incredible things if this works and I'm telling you if it does start to work it's going to speed up this economic recovery in how ironic would it be if Jerome Powell you know who's who's been on the tweeting side of the president help this economy fire back up sooner than later so that by the summer or early fall this economy starting to get healthy and fast thanks to the work of the the fed chair I have not been a big fan of the fed for a lot of years but I do recognize I once said they fired all the bullets again I was wrong because the muscles and things are really helped get a lot of money into the business hands of small and large businesses and making things available that before we just in half and that may help this economy recover sooner than later nobody nobody knew that they could dig out of a concentration camp for a prisoner of war camp until we know the.

"Jane Whaley was not satisfied with being a pastor's wife she believed god had bigger plans for her so she pushed against all the norms that kept her from the pulpit and found the church and spend their North Carolina called the word of faith fellowship the church's website shows people singing and smiling Jane Whaley at center stage from the outside it looks like a community of pious believers but some former members say the dangerous cult these people believe that Jane Whaley was their path to salvation and that if they did anything that went against her wishes they would get cancer and die or they would become drug addicts these are things that Jane way we would tell them it was Holbrook more he and Mitch Weiss a fellow AP reporter have been looking into abuse allegations within the church for years our colleague Rachel Martin spoke with them about their new book broken faith and just a note here the story does include descriptions of that alleged abuse there is two sides Jayme wellies yours that's sweet southern grandmotherly type and then there's the Jane that nobody sees except church members the one who screaming at the top of a longs congregants warning them that the devils have to come out it's like the Jekyll and Hyde right Holbrooke can you describe what people saw in her what was bringing them to this church I think that in the beginning when people would go to the church they were selling a lot of love yeah the members of this church they live in nice homes they drive nice cars the children are well mannered they have a Christian school so I think when a lot of families first go there everything seems great but over time Janeway Lee and her other ministers they take more and more control of your lives in fact a lot of times they'll remove children from their families home it and place them with ministers to be raised and what that does is over time sometimes those kids care more about the minister's than their own parents so it makes it difficult for families to leave so it's not a quick thing where you just walk in the door and they say Hey come on in you can come in you can never leave we're gonna take your television magazines radio all that away from you an institute all these rules it's a slow progressive thing and Mitch she when the other church leadership they would use family members against one another I mean hobar talked about how they would separate children sometimes as leverage but they got family members to serve as informants almost absolutely you have to realize they believe that Jane well it was a profit that god spoke to her and everything she said was the gospel and one of the techniques that she used what she had everybody informed on each other it was in a way she would have them tell her their deepest darkest secrets and then she kept the file of those secrets and if they threatened to leave or did something wrong she had all the evidence she needed there to keep them in line so it it was a range of emotional and psychological abuse but from interviews you did with a hundred or so former members you were able to reconstruct a pattern of a violent physical abuse can you just a lay out for us some of those more extreme examples of that yes it was something that that really got worse over time and you have to understand what her philosophy is the doctrine is is really pretty simple doubles a real and if you're a drug addict it's because you have this drug gavel if you know your alcoholic the same if you're having an affair it's the same thing there are there lawful devils and so what she would do is it was called devils and deliverance where they would have people surround you and scream at you at to get the devils out get out double yeah and and it will go on and on and on perfect example is with the baby if babies cry it wasn't because they were hungry or they had a dirty diaper it was because it was a devil inside them that was making them cry so you would have groups of people surrounding a you know in a fan and screaming until that baby would just get tired and finally you know go to sleep and not to scream it just it just to be specific this method call blasting they are they're right in front of the subject's face right there screaming into the baby's ears enter a like inches from her face exactly and that's how she started at the beginning with her congregants over time it became more and more violent it wasn't enough just to screen to scare the devils out of people now you had to punch people you had to hold them down to restrain them you had to choke them you had to do everything possible to get rid of that devil and that's when it became extremely violent that's where the people who who recounted their stories would break down to us they would tell us about their injuries and they couldn't go to doctors they couldn't be treated because they knew what would happen so they had to keep it secret but it's those beatings that that really it's still seared into their planes now they can't get rid of those images those nightmares there is a lot of suspense in this tale but it's it's not fiction I mean this is this is a real life accounting of how the church destroyed these lives but you're you're so specific I mean it reads like fiction though you could you've you're recreating dialogue how did you do that we tried to talk to as many people as we could about any particular incident that we wanted to write about let's not often interviewed him together multiple times over a period of five years really we look for please reports department social services child welfare investigation documents we have recordings from inside the church videos so we just tried to to use all the resources that we could find to tell this story in the most compelling way that we could several lawsuits have been brought against the church and its members over the years has anyone been held accountable for the abuse there are five people currently charged with assaulting a former member of the church Matthew Fenner he says that he was beaten to expel his homosexual demons back in two thousand thirteen but so far nobody's been

"The Richard Holbrooke professor in the department of political science at the Watson institute for public and international affairs at Brown University where his research focuses on international order especially as related to energy and the environment he's the author of petrol aggression when oil courses war any has an article in The Washington quarterly three visions of international order welcome to background briefing Jeff Colgan thanks so much for having me on well thank you for joining us in the stream of visions or the three camps if you will all of US foreign policy the centrist holding on to the liberal order the populist nationalist revolt and the progressive counter revolt so and taking them in that order the liberal order need a quote Vladimir Putin recently declared the liberal order dead let's begin them yes of their you know for roughly seventy years the United States has promoted this liberal order underpinned by institutions like NATO at the World Trade Organization the World Bank the IMF that promote a certain you know vision and for half the world and it's done a great deal of good in the world I would argue but it has become I think distorted in the sense that the benefits of globalization have accrued mostly to either the very rich around World War kind of the you know lower middle classes in developing countries and not to the the working and middle classes in the United States and in Europe primarily and the populist nationalist revolt that is clearly what we're seeing with brags at Karaj trump Stephen man yes and so that their their capital anything I think in part on the frustration with the way the globalization and the benefits from it have been distributed of course there's lots more going on there's there's an element of racism there's an element of lots of other things but one part that's feeding into this narrative is the fact that the working classes especially people without a full college education their incomes have been stagnating for the last thirty or forty years which is an awfully long time in real terms meaning inflation adjusted terms household incomes for people without any college education at all has actually declined by about twenty percent over that time period and so understandably people really frustrated and looking for alternatives and people like Donald Trump and Nigel for ours and others are offering them one and that's become attractive of course but from a foreign policy perspective I think these guys are not really problematic in addition to being quite nativist and and racist there also my off background in the sense that they're not seeing how to address global challenges and chiefly things like climate change but also even how to manage peace among major powers like China Russia the United States and preserving those that peace has been one of the great accomplishments of the the liberal order that came before them and then the progressive counter revolved to describe that in and who's going to propel it absolutely and so this kind of populist nationalist revolt and to the extent that it had and any good it is a sort of inspired some real rethinking on the laughter and particularly by people like senator Elizabeth Warren and senator Bernie Sanders and others and this vision is is not perfect either none of these three versions are perfect invite the progressive alternatives and gets a lot of things right in terms of wanting to re commits to alliances to address climate change to we work with our Ron they actually want to or wanted to maybe in the past tense wanted to reinstate the U. S. Iran nuclear deal which may now be totally invisible but they have also wanted to see a series of economic changes including giving labor a seat at the table and when trade deals or other economic integration deals are being negotiated also providing greater transparency about you know kind of hidden assets and tax havens in the Cayman Islands and and elsewhere all around the world and you know re committing to nuclear nonproliferation these sorts of things and so this vision offers I think a great deal of good but it also falls down and in particular ways and one of the ways it does that is that progressive leaders have been largely silent on the issue of immigration which of course is a key issue and there's a lot of waffling about that because the progressive coalition wants different things right that in different parts of the progressive listen in coalition wants different things on immigration you've got some folks who are advocating loudly to abolish ice right now referring to the immigration and customs enforcement agency and so there's a hole in a hash tag abolish ice campaign on social media and while I agree that the ice and agencies desperately in need of reform it gives the impression this idea of abolishing eyes gives the impression to voters that progresses wants you know completely open immigration with no limits at all and other progressives want more sensible limits but that message gets drowned out by that the kind of looks farther left wing of the progressive coalition so there's that problem and there's also I think a little bit of vagueness or even incoherence on trade where different parts of the progressive coalition have very different stances about what they want to see atoms trade deals whether they want free trade or something more managed that are and so then that creates a problem I think for each of these three visions each one of them fails to deliver on what we would want as a kind of politically sustainable long term sustainable international order in terms of the work you've done on oil closing war we are literally in a situation where at any moment and the straits of Hormuz could be shut down and we get a shooting war between the United States and Iran could break out and of course to illustrate the incoherence of the populace nationalist revolt the brakes at ten trump status guess who would be the the big winner if a third of the oil supply was shut off in the Gulf at let me put in so to me that it is a perfect example of the incoherence of these populist nationalist and even though there are some questions as to whether denounced trump and we certainly know that ban and has some peculiar ideological comfort zone that he shares with Vladimir Putin of a the white Christian culture standing up against the idea of you know white genocide at the hands of hordes of Muslim immigrants that's right and I I mean I think the the point you're making about the kind of incoherence of the populace nationalist approach to foreign affairs and this is not just trump but also as you say Boris Johnson Nigel Farrar's marine le pen yeah you you get these very strong stance is to try to show toughness and yet when you actually look at how what the messages these things are sending they're not good ones right so and trump is on the one hand cozying up to Kim Jong un in North Korea and and apparently making moves towards kind of a recognition some sort of deal living with and north Korea's nuclear arsenal yet at the same time trying to ratchet up you know so called maximum pressure on a run for and pursuing it yeah a nuclear at the turn of their own and you have to imagine if you're all runs leader is looking at the situation what's the lesson here right you've seen United States topple regimes in Iraq and in Libya over the last fifteen years and so you know and and now you're seeing North Korea successfully kind of re integrate into the international community having obtained nuclear weapons the C. R. India having done so a few years back and if so why would a run not want to pursue nuclear weapons seeing as it seems to be the only thing that can kind of guarantee its own defense and and you know what's worse is that of course were throwing away and deal that offered them a path to have being security without pursuing nuclear weapons and instead we're doing something you know just completely opposite and to that and it's it's really frustrating I think for foreign policy professionals to watch this kind of amateur blundering around the world and in the name of protecting toughness for the United States so let's see I think there's not a lot more to be said about the liberal order which of course let me put in recently declared is over and that was a little disingenuous picky when he talked about how immigration is upsetting if not undermining Europe he of course along with Assad in Syria engineered the vast exodus of Muslim immigrants into Europe shortly after the Russians deployed in in Syria that's when you know millions were driven out of Syria by Assad and Russians basically saying you've got so much time you got to get a few days to get out of town otherwise he will exterminate you Sir needless to say that vast flood went into Turkey and then on through grace and into the rest of your wind and leading the head of the NATO at the time to say that to put in had weaponized migration so he's not exactly the best source on that but I think your point about winners and losers in globalization is the main one that the neo liberal order is pretty much discredited in that regard but the one area that I think our audience might like us to talk about in terms of optimism is the progressive counter revolution my sense Jeff Colgan is that the sweet spot in U. S. all it takes is that you can be an idealist on domestic issues but you can also be a realist on foreign policy and I'm not sure I think that Elizabeth Warren definitely would fit that category and because I'm not showing that there's much difference between her and Benny sent as a lot of critics of Sanders suggested he may be a little sentimental in terms of having stood against the horrible history of US intervention in the Cold War I mean this is the tragedy of the American left and I get so much hate mail from people saying why you you know you're going after Putin the end is that the answer to that is why are you making excuses for him the American left took a very heroic and principled stand against the horrible death squads in in El Salvador and the contras in Nicaragua etcetera and when human rights really meant something now they're making excuses for this narco kleptocracy in Venezuela that has destroyed the country and they make excuses for Putin so I think that there's a middle ground between the trumps to America Festus and the laughs America worst the info reflexive idea that uncle Sam's away from which I don't know that you can not only anti American life but certainly my left wing critics definitely are making excuses for food and and Madeira eccentric and I don't you know and send a list with one is really since I was a bad way Benny Sanders also I think a realist in the sense that he he's no apologist for food and all Maduro so what's then is that they could take it I was just in in the last couple of minutes the critique of trump of pop and.

"holbrooke" Discussed on PRI's The World
"I mean, how did he do it? He pushed the three Balkan leaders from Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia to begin to negotiate with. Each other. And the real turning point was when he applied diplomatic pressure to force them to talk and at the same time military pressure by getting NATO to finally begin a serious bombing campaign against the Serb positions around Sarajevo, and that combined diplomacy and force were in perfect balance at that moment and finally ended a war that had defeated many leading diplomats of the day. Holbrooke was the one who got it done. And he got it done, partly by being a pain in the ass as you said earlier by never taking no for an answer. He just didn't give up. He was persistent, and that was a kind of customer service that could be really difficult to deal with in private life. But that ended the war in Bosnia throughout the book. You we've the personal and political with a real emphasis on the women in Holbrook's life, his wives as well as girlfriends and Paramore's what was the point there? Well, he's a man in full. And I am not just. Interested in Holbrook as a diplomat at or Holbrooke as a historical figure and Holbrooke would not have been interested in Hobart, just as a diplomat. He was interested in human beings and had a real effect on people men and women, but the women in his life were particularly important because I think he was only himself around them. And it's through his relations with women that I think we really get to the heart of Holbrook much closer than with men. So if I I'd ignored those relationships, I think we would have lost sight of who he really was both for better and for worse. It's hard to separate Holbrooke the man from his career because well into the two thousands. He died in two thousand ten he still behaving like a kind of brilliant. But hapless man, I mean barely able to tie shoes. But always flirting cajoling persuading admonishing. He needs to be waited on cater to. I mean, we're well well into different relationships between the sexes. And it was just depressing to read that he could be this kind of man. In two thousand ten well, first of all, I think they're plenty of men out there who are not that different from Hct. They just have maybe gone undercover. In the last few years. Let's second he couldn't see himself. And this was maybe his basic flaw. He could be a brilliant judge of other people, for example. He would give great analysis of Barack Obama as a president. But when a friend would ask him, how do you think you affect Obama? He didn't have a clue and the truth was he was having a very bad effect on Obama for some of the reasons you've been suggesting you is make sure to describe all the women in Holbrook's life. There looks whether they were sexier dowdy. I mean, part of your description of Kati Marton Holbrooke third wife, some of the things you say about her was she was indisputably beautiful breasts larger than he expected. He liked that to her beauty wasn't the kind that sat back and waited to be unveiled. I mean, all we get about Holbrooke is that he had food stains on his clothes and a pot belly at times it I've read a lot of your writing. And these descriptions of women they don't sound like. Your usual textured and three-dimensional pros sounds more like a bodice-ripper. Why did you do that? I don't think you're reading it correctly because his great deal about Kati Marton and about Liddy Holbrook and about Madeleine Albright and Hillary Clinton that talks about their ideas, their views their inner life, even you've taken a few lines and turn it into an entire book, which is not fair. But that's how Holbrooke saw women to some extent. And it would be dishonest for me to pretend otherwise for the sake of appearing to be you know, somehow above it. And I think if you found some other passages to read you would have to acknowledge that these women get an a portrait that's as full as the portrait of the men in his life. Absolutely. That's one of the contradictions about Holbrooke. He liked and nurtured smart women. He was a mentor as a writer. It was a weird choice to me because the book precisely is very balanced in depth..
