Top US Commander in Europe Says Biden Failed to 'Deter' Putin
"To kind of finish this whole topic that we were talking about before we had Don Junior on from MXM news. Which is quote the head of the U.S. European command admits Biden's plan to stop Russia's invasion of Ukraine was worthless. Quote, I can't argue with your conclusions. So said general Todd Walters head of the United States, European command and NATO supreme allied commander in agreement with Joe Biden's threat of sanctions that deter Vladimir Putin from launching an invasion against Ukraine was a failure. Walters made the admission on Wednesday during testimony for the House armed services committee on a continuing war in Ukraine and its quote overarching effect on United States and NATO. The best way to have prevented an invasion and a war and with it, the refugees and with it all of the problems associated would have been to embrace American energy. The real victims here are the Ukrainian people. The Ukrainian people, millions of them. Are fleeing Ukraine to Poland and other neighboring countries. And they're unfortunately being used as pawns by this entire by the regime of both sides, by the way. Reports are suggesting that Russia has committed 70 to 75% of its entire military to the war. After failing to achieve its original agent objective, so there's one of two things that are happening either the western press is totally off base here not telling the truth or Russia's military is nowhere near as powerful. As it was, not even close as powerful as we thought it would be.

Esper defends use of National Guard in helping with civil unrest after George Floyd death
"Defense Secretary Mark Casper defended his decision to use National Guard soldiers in support of law enforcement agencies during the civil unrest triggered by the killing of George Floyd. Yesterday, he testified before the House Armed Services Committee. The guard did not advance on the crowd. At the guard did not shoot rubber bullets. At the guard did not employ chemical agents of any type. Under particular scrutiny is the handling of the situation at Lafayette Square June 1st when peaceful protesters were cleared of the area. Tens of thousands of troops were immobilized around the country to help with crowd control, including thousands from 11 states sent into the D C area and another 700 active duty troops who are stage in Maryland and Virginia in case of emergency
Esper And Milley Testify On Military's Role In Handling Recent Protests
"Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley were on Capitol Hill today. They testified about the recent deployment of the National Guard troops in D. C during protests. Esper said that guard members were only in the district in a supporting role. He also made a separate point to the House Armed Services Committee involving active duty men and women. I want to make very clear That no active duty military units engaged protestors or otherwise took part direct part in civilian law enforcement or federal protection missions in the District of Columbia. Jasper says lawmakers will soon get an after action report on what happened.

"house armed services committee" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Elsa Chang, The House Armed Services Committee had a host of questions today for Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley. Questions covered what the role was of the National Guard during recent protests, and they covered reports of Russia paying bounties for the Taliban to kill Americans. NPR. Pentagon correspondent Tom Bowman joins us with details. Hey, Tom, also All right, So let's start the national Guard. I mean, there have been lingering questions over how they were used on June 1st in Lafayette Square in Washington, D. C. What did Esper and really say about the role of the guard that day? Will. They defended the role of the National Guard. The same guard troops were there to support civilian law enforcement and we're in what they called a static position. They didn't take part in clearing the park of peaceful protesters, Guard troops, they said. Are used to dealing with any civil unrest, supporting local authorities on a variety of for a variety of reasons, and they said, is a better alternative than using active duty forces as president. Trump had threatened. And is it clear who was actually calling the shots that day? You know it's not clear else, And that's really surprising neither as for normally knew, who gave the order to clear the park. But again, the guard was working in support of civil authorities. Justice Department as well as the Park police were apparently someone within those organizations gave the order. Now the Pentagon is doing what it calls an after action report on the guards rule in D C and also elsewhere around the country, including Training and equipment. Now. One issue in D. C was also a guard helicopter flew low over protesters in the wash from the blades swept them up in debris even tour some limbs from treason. The report's expect to determine why that happened. Okay, well, the other story I want to ask you about is reports of a bounty program in Afghanistan, where Russia was reportedly offering up cash sums to Taliban fighters to kill Americans. Why don't we know about this so far? Well, it did come up. Both Esper and Milly said the Pentagon has not corroborated reports of the bony program from the intelligence community, principally the CIA. The Pentagon is still looking into that, and they see no evidence that any Americans were killed. As a result of this supposed program. But general, Milley pointed out, and he's done multiple tours in Afghanistan that it's long been known that Russia was aiding the Taliban with training and equipment. Or deported meddling since 2013 or so. And also this is something I saw in the ground myself. When I was in Helmand province a few years back with my producer, Monica s Stati, Ava. Thing is, Milly did go on to say the American troops there are at the highest level of force protection, and he said, there's not much more they can do at the ground level. This issue of Russian bounties is MME or something for top political leaders. Let's listen. The issue is higher than that The issue is at the strategic level. What should or could we be doing at the strategic level is their diplomatic and informational and economic of the sanctions of the dead marshes. Are their phone calls, other pressure those sorts of things, and I could tell you that some of that is done. Are we doing as much as we could, or should? Perhaps not interesting. He's saying that we probably are not doing as much as we could or should. So is that language? Actually being echoed by the White House at the moment, Absolutely not. The White House criticized in New York Times, which broke the story about the supposed bounties. He's criticized him for revealing classified information in the president just dismissed the whole story as a hoax, and he said it was on ly to damage me in the Republican Party. But the Pentagon again Is looking into this taking it very seriously. And clearly, as you just heard, General Milley was much more forceful on Russia than anything we've heard recently from the White House. And if it's true, these bounties Millie said he would be an outraged general. That is NPR's Tom Bowman. Thank you so much time. You're welcome. Also. Scientists say they have identified an enzyme that could help explain how exercise Khun slow or even reverse some signs of aging in the brain. Exercising a bottle is not around the corner, but it's not out of the question, either. NPR science correspondent Richard Harris took a break from reporting about the Corona virus to look into this intriguing suggestion. Scientists were surprised to discover a few years ago that brain function doesn't have to get worse. And worse as we age solve. A lady's research was inspired in part by a finding that parts of the brain can actually re grow even in older people. Just because you have an old brand doesn't have to stay that way. One of the best known interventions that has a benefit on the brain is exercise. The problem is that the elderly are frail. Many of them can't physically do. The exercise for Leda and his colleagues at UC San Francisco have been on the hunt for factors in the blood that air boosted by exercise and that Khun Improve mental performance. Can we actually then transfer the benefits of exercise without actually having to do the physical component of the exercise itself? They now report in science magazine that they think they have a great lead. My sou exercise produced lots of a liver in time called G P l D one. And when the researchers revved up production of this protein in mice, nerves grew in part of their brains and the animals perform better on mental tasks in a maze exercise causes this protein to be produced in the liver goes into the blood that sort of damp in certain aspects of inflammation. And then the result of that is that you actually have improvement. In cognitive function in these older mice. The research team also looked at a group of older people who exercise more and there again, they found more of this enzyme. So the same thing is true Inhumans. If you're more active, you're producing more of this protein, and it's sort of circulating your blood. Now both aging and exercise are extremely complicated systems involving all sorts of components that interact in complicated ways. So Valente had to think hard about whether a single protein could really have a big effect. I was definitely surprised that one protein could could have that much effect. But when I started thinking about it, Okay, it's one approaching. But really, it's changing. You know these other 100 protein, so I think that's why scientists are nowhere near understanding the complex relationship between all these interacting parts. Bradley Wise is at the National Institute on Aging. There's a long step Between identifying this enzyme and making me a pill out of that This is one piece of the puzzle. But the team at UC San Francisco is eager to see if they can find their way to making a medication out of there now patented Discovery. Elena says the discovery at least suggests a path forward. We don't have that, you know, exercise pill right now. You know, this lets us know that that I think is a is a viable thing to pursue. We're not there yet. You know, my mom gets really excited. She was like, Oh, exercise that about us like we're on our way. But we're not. We're not there yet. I wouldn't rush out to make GPL d one and give it to people Bill Freeman, researchers aging at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation and at the VA in Oklahoma City. He's excited about the new findings, but cautions that almost nothing is known about the potential downside of tinkering with this enzyme and the complicated system. It effects. There's a lot more research done, and in the meantime one of the things that we can all do. Is exercise we can we have that within our own power and exercise has all sorts of health benefits beyond the brain. So if this ever does become a medication, it would be most helpful for people who through injury or old age simply can't exercise on their own. Richard Harris. NPR news And this is WN my C. You're listening to all things considered. There's more just ahead.

Congressman Thornberry. Thank you very much for joining us. Tell us what are they saying at the White House about these reports? Well, our briefing today was of the classified intelligence information, which is the basis for these concerns about Russians encouraging. Attacks against U. S troops. And so we dug down deeper into the information like a lot of intelligence questions. It's not completely clear cut. There are pieces of information and some of it contradictory and you have to try to put it all together to understand what's really happening. And so that's what we're focused on. So, as you know, The New York Times and now, other news organizations are reporting that the Russians did offer bounty paid bounty to the Taliban to kill. American troops. That's pretty direct s. So you're saying what you heard today was that this is not true. Or that it could be true. There are pieces of information that supported their maybe pieces that give a somewhat different view. But I think most of us would agree. If there's any hint of truth or any prospect of truth in the idea that Russia or any other country would put bounties on the head of U. S service members. We have to treat it very seriously and pursue every lead and make sure our people are protected. And so I think that's got to be the mindset moving forward. And what were you told with regard to whether President Trump was informed about this intelligence. We were told that he was not informed about the intelligence..
