"Adam Smith is the chair of the House Armed Services Committee. He's been overseas as the situation in Afghanistan unfolded this morning. He spoke at length with GMOs Charlie harder. Smith has been visiting troops, including Washington National Guard members in Ukraine. It is a tragic outcome in Afghanistan. Without question. We tried for the better part of 20 years to create a viable alternative to the Taliban. Mean, our initial mission was clear. Get rid of Osama bin Laden. Um, you know, bring down the Taliban, who had allowed him safe haven and we had to do that, in my view to prevent another 9 11. I think it's pretty obvious and it was successful. Once we had done that the question arose. Well, if we just leave now, and the Taliban come a rolling back into power. What have we really accomplished? So we wanted to stay and try to create that alternative. Sadly, we were not able to do that. Um, there's a lot of different reasons for it. But ultimately the Afghan government there was too much corruption. Too much tribalism. Too much incompetence to create that reasonable alternative. The Taliban and this is the result. And my reaction to it is it's just tragic. It is a profound boss, um, that the Taliban are going to be back in charge of Afghanistan. Is there anything that could have been done differently? Of course, I mean, any situation there things that could have been done differently. Um, And you know, we've examined this question a lot on the armed Services Committee and will continue to examine it. I think the other big question right now is what do we do? Going forward? Um, you know, we have the U. S troops that are there now. How do we get as many Afghan supporters out of the country as possible? We're going to work on that. I'm working very closely with Chairman Millie and others at the Pentagon to try and get that done and then going forward. What is our plan to contain the terrorist threat coming out of South Asia? Now that the Taliban are back in charge, I think it is also very important to look at What happened with the withdrawal? I mean, I think it's clear that the Biden administration did not prepare as much as they should have for getting civilians out of Afghanistan. They did a great job getting military out. The Armed Services Committee. You know, we've We've been questioning the Pentagon about this, You know, for seven months now, what's the plan? And I don't think they planned as well as they should have for the reality of a Taliban takeover and the necessity of getting our supporters out. We're speaking with Washington Congressman Adam Smith, the chair of the House Armed Services Committee. Was this all worth? It was there at the time. We could have pulled out the U. S. For 20 years $2 trillion roughly and and lost thousands of lives with tens of thousands injured. I hope with this this tells our allies is us actually makes very strong commitments to our allies, even at great personal loss, But I don't I don't think the question was this worth It is fair. I mean, it's a very simple minded, you know, way of looking at this. That really, I think, undercuts what was going on. And there. Certainly it was worth it to make sure that Osama bin Laden with the support of the Taliban, was not able to attack the American homeland again. Then second when we had that happened as I mentioned, we didn't want the Taliban to simply roll back into power, so We needed an alternative. We needed a government that could stands of the Taliban wouldn't take it over. I think it was absolutely worth it to try and stand up that government. That effort was was noble. It was an effort to try to give people a better life. And I can't see how anyone could say that wasn't worth it. Even if ultimately it wasn't successful. Um, now along the way, was there a point at which we should have pulled out sooner? That's something we need to closely examine. And and maybe so, you know, back in 2000 and 8, 2000 and nine You could certainly make an argument that at that point, it was hopeless. Taliban takeover was inevitable. It was time to accept it. Understand that the effort to movement that was an effort to protect people an effort to give people a better life, and I think we have to respect that as Washington Congressman Adam Smith, the chair of the House Armed Services Committee, and Charlie Harder, Come on news your money at 20 and.

"house armed services committee" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio

"It came up at today's House Armed Services Committee here is that exchange In my previous discussions with service members and particularly officers, I would hear about complaints over parts not arriving on time, long deployments. And in my more recent discussions with those officers, the number one issue that they raised to me with concern, often unable to speak publicly for fear of the type of retribution that Lieutenant Colonel Lemire faced. They say that your stand down regarding extremism did not help. Our military and hurt the military. And I want to share with you that perspective that it caused service members to other eyes. One another, It impaired group cohesion and interesting to me is that I've heard those sentiments most frequently from units that are majority minority. That that this was not particularly helpful. So I wanted to give you the opportunity to maybe share with us more specificity regarding the definitions that seem to be a challenge. When Miss Hartzler was asking questions, how should the Department of Defense think about critical race theory? Could I make a comment? Six AM so I'm very limited on my time. General Miller. Well, I just want to make comment that the final but I've asked the question to secretary Officer I don't know what the with the issue of critical race theory is and what the relevant Here in with the department. We do not teach critical race theory. We don't We don't embrace critical race theory, and I think I think that's a spurious, uh, conversation and so we are focused on extremists behaviors and not not Ideology, not not people's thoughts, not people's, Um political orientation behaviors is what we're focused on. But in one final point, and thanks for your anecdotal input, But I would say that I have gotten 10 times that amount of input 50 times that amount of input on the other side that have said Hey, we're glad to have had the ability to have a conversation with ourselves and with our leadership, and that's what we need to make it again. Reclaiming my time, Mr Secretary. It may be that you're receiving that input in the ratios you describe because it was your directive. It may be that people are concerned about criticizing your decision because Lieutenant Colonel Lemire was not relieved of his command for his actions. He was not relieved of his command because of poor performance regard. His duties. He was relieved of his command precisely because of his thoughts. And because of his critique of critical race theory. It is particularly That from Congressman Net Gates, Republican of Florida and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. Also, he was joined by the chair of the Joint Chiefs General Mark Miller, Mark Milley, giving his own defense of open minus within the ranks during the House Armed Services hearing, He told lawmakers he is offended. It claims that efforts to undercut the military's mission and effective ists are in place. We're going to begin with questions from Democratic Congressman Christie Holen. Chair and thank you gentlemen for joining us today. I know my time is very precious. But I would like to yield some of my time to General Milley because I know that he had some comments that he wanted to make when representative Gates was talking as well as Mr Waltz about a similar subject of the stand down and race theory. Would you like a minute or so to comment on that? Do you remember what we were? Well, your line of questioning or thought was there? Um, sure, First of all, On the issue of critical race theory, etcetera. I'll obviously have to get much smarter on whatever the theory is, Um, but I do think it's important actually, for those of us in uniform to be open minded and be widely read, and the United States military Academy is a university and it is important that we train and we understand I want to understand white rage and I'm white and I want to understand it. So what is it that cause thousands of people? To assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America. What caused that? I want to find that out. I want to maintain an open mind here, and I do want to analyze it. It's important that we understand that because our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and guardians. They come from the American people. So it is important that the leaders now end in the future, do understand it. I've read mile say, tongue I've read. I've read Karl Marx. I've read Lenin That doesn't make me a communist. So what is wrong with understanding having some situational understanding about the country for which we are here to defend and I personally find it offensive. That we are accusing the United States military general officers are commissioned noncommissioned officers of being quote woke or something else because we're studying some theories that are out there that was started Harvard Law school years ago and proposed that there were laws in the United States anti Belem laws prior to the civil war that led to a power differential with African Americans. There were three quarters of a human being when this country was formed, and we had a Civil War Emancipation Proclamation. To change it, and we brought it up to the civil Rights Act. 1964 took another 100 years to change that. So look at I do want to know. And I respect your service. And you and I both green Berets, but I want to know And it matters to our military and the discipline and cohesion of this military. And I thank you for the opportunity to make a comment on that. Thank you, General that from General Mark Milley. He, of course, is the chair of the Joint Chiefs testifying before the House Armed Services Committee. It's available on our website at.

"I guess Americans to know that the Russian nuclear Inventory about 88% of it has been modernized about. None of ours has been modernized under the Biden proposed massive multi trillion dollars $6 trillion budget. The defense budget really goes negative because he doesn't even give enough of an increase to cover existing expenses. Correct. That is correct. President Biden budget, which will bankrupt America is actually a cut to our national defense budget because it doesn't keep pace with inflation. This is a really big win that President Trump delivered. We were in the process of rebuilding our national defense. Our military readiness. This is something that I work on on the House Armed Services Committee. When it comes to nuclear modernization. Democrats in Congress are very much opposed to making the critical investments we need when it comes to nuclear modernization. Yet adversaries like Russia to your point mark have made those investments and Putin's top priority was to get that five year extension for the new start treaty. Biden gave it away. Without delivering anything back to the United States.

But could his nomination face some trouble in the Senate and joining us live from Capitol Hill? Double d. T. O p. S Mitchell Miller. Mitch General Austin is very well respected. So why are there questions about whether the Senate would confirm it? Well, Shawn and Hillary. It goes back to the history of the defense secretary being in a civilian position, and the so called seven year rule that if a military officer is tapped for that position, they need to have been retired from the military for at least that long. Austin retired four years ago after a distinguished military career of more than 40 years and included a major command in Iraq. Tenure is the head of the U. S. Central Command. But several lawmakers say it's important to maintain a civilian in that position. The ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Rhode Island Jack Reed had given in on a waiver for General James Mattis under President. Trump said he wouldn't support one in the future. He is now wrestling with this. Others have said they'll oppose the waiver, including senators Elizabeth Warren Richard Blumenthal, who's on the Armed Services Committee and Jon Tester of Montana. But if the House and the Senate grant a waiver, which they both have to do, he'll likely still have plenty of votes to be confirmed. Hey, Mitch, who are the other potential candidates? Lawmakers might have preferred to Austin. Well, one of them would have been the first woman to serve as defense secretary Michelle Florida who's held various positions at the Pentagon and is very well respected. The House Armed Services Committee chair Adam Smith made it clear she was his first choice. Another candidate who had been talked about a lot was former Homeland Security Secretary Jay Johnson.

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.

"Komo forecast. For tomorrow. We expect rain high around forty five degrees currently in Seattle, forty four degrees. Komo news time four thirty six. President Trump was asked about whether he'll declare a national emergency to get the funding. He wants for the southern border. I may declare a national emergency defended their what's going to happen over the next few days. Washington democratic congressman Adam Smith, the new chair of the House Armed Services committee is talking about that and spoke with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. Let's get right to it does President Trump have the ability have the authority to declare a national -mergency have the military build his wall. The short answer is. Yes, there is a provision in law that says the president can declare an emergency. It's been done a number of times for primarily it's been done to build facilities in Afghanistan in Iraq. In this case. I think the president would be wide open to a court challenge saying, where's the emergency? You have to establish that in order to do this. But beyond that, this would be a terrible use of department of defense dollars, the president spends most of his time talking about how we're not spending enough our national security now he wants to take twenty billion dollars out of the defense budget to build a wall, which by the way is not going to improve our border security, the president seems unaware of this. But we've actually built a wall across much of the border and all border security experts that I talked to say where a wall makes sense. It's already been built we should have a conversation about national security are sorry about border security, but first we should reopen the government and start paying our border patrol agents and the other eight hundred. Employees who were furloughed. Let's talk about the broader agenda. You said you wanna hold hearings in the Armed Services Committee on President Trump's politicization of the military. What does that mean? Exactly. And who will you call? Well, we've what we've seen is when the president talks to Tribune has campaign rallies when when he's talking to troops. I don't think you should use the military to advance your agenda every other president before this when they worked with the military when they parked the troops. It's been about national security. It's been about their services their service. Sorry. But when President Trump talks, it's about his campaign about how bad the Democrats are. Yeah. We we need civilian control of the military, and we need to separate those things. But the main thing that I want to focus on in the hearings that we have coming up. Once we get our committee said is transparency and oversight. Why did the president send fifty six hundred troops active duty troops to the border? What was the purpose of it? What is his policy in Syria and Afghanistan is he's now talking about pulling out has been a lack of transparency in an explanation for what his national security strategy. Is that is Washington democratic congressman Adam Smith with ABC's George Stephanopoulos? Meanwhile, on Fox News Chris Wallace talked about border security with White House spokesperson, Sarah Sanders. The president talks about terrorists potentially coming across the border. And here's secretary of homeland security. Nielsen take a look. CPS stopped over three thousand what we call special interest aliens trying to come into the country in the southern border. Those are aliens who the Intel community has identified are of concern. Special interest aliens are just people who come from countries that have ever produced a terrorist or not terrorists themselves and the State Department says that there is quote their words, no credible. Evidence of any terrorists coming across the border from Mexico. We know that roughly nearly four thousand known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally. And we know that are most vulnerable point of entry statistic. I didn't know if you're gonna use it. But I studied up on this, you know, where those four thousand people come where they're captured airports, not.

"You are. I'm Robin young. I'm Jeremy Hobson it's here now in this is the seventeenth day of the government shutdown. If it's still going on at the end of the week, it'll be the longest in history, and that looks more likely after an announcement today. The President Trump will spend Thursday visiting the border to make the case for his wall. Which is at the center of the shutdown fight this morning. President Trump again talked on Twitter about declaring an emergency at the border. So you can act unilaterally and build a wall without Congress's approval. But he said, let's get our deal done in congress and pure White House correspondent or Keith joins us now. Hi tam. Hi. So first of all, let's just get to the latest of what's going on here. The president going to the border on Thursday. And there are now reports that he may be asking some TV networks to do a primetime address tomorrow to talk about this, right? And I have not independently confirmed those reports, but it it seems pretty safe to say that the president feels like he needs to tell his own story here, you know, leading into the shutdown. He said he would be proud to shut the government down. That's what's still hanging out there. Even though he's done a press conference in he's he's stopped to talk to reporters as he's gone off to Marine One sort of the the White House and the president have not done a great job of yet making their case will what about the idea that he could do this himself. He could declare a state of emergency and build the wall. This is the democratic chair of the House Armed Services committee, Adam Smith on ABC's this week. There is a provision in law that says the president can declare an emergency. It's been done a number of times, but primarily it's been done to build facilities in Afghanistan in Iraq in this. Case I think the president would be wide open to a court challenge. Sag where's the emergency? Now, the president partially quoted that statement on Twitter today. Leaving out the skepticism there, thereby whether it would work, but how seriously is the president looking at this option. Well, he has not just in that tweet. But also in statements to reporters has has mentioned it usually by the time, it gets to the point of the president sort of teasing something, they're they're the wheels have been turning at least somewhat behind the scenes, we don't know whether it will happen there. There are a lot of disagreements among legal scholars about how this would go down. Whether he had fully has the authority, and whether it would create a crisis sort of a constitutional crisis or not I spoke with Smith as well. A congressman Smith chairman Smith earlier today, and and he said that the way he feels you know, the president does have the legal authority. Sure, it will be challenged in court. But he. At this point. He needs to make a political case in a policy case that, you know, building a wall taking money from the military to build the wall would be bad, politics and bad policy will end the White House seems to be saying that they're making concessions to Democrats by saying, well, maybe not a wall, but offense, let's listen here to the acting chief of staff of the White House. Mick Mulvaney, who is on an NBC's meet the press with Chuck Todd and said that the president was willing to compromise areas. He was willing to agree to take a concrete wall off the table because again, what's driving. This is the president's desire to change the conditions at the border, and if he has to give a concrete wall replace it with a steel fence in order to do that. So that Democrats can say see he's not building a wall anymore. So that should help us to be the president no longer wants a wall. That'd be wants a fence. The president is going to secure the border with a barrier. Timber. Does that make any difference to Democrats whether it's a wall or fence? Well, and and let's. Just be clear that this is not a massive concession. The president has been talking about a wall that you can see through which is oddly like definition only offense for more than a year. So so that the change here isn't really a change. They're just trying to make hay out of something. Democrats are not persuaded it their issue is with a physical barrier..

"And start listening to Sean Hannity and changed his mind. We should open the government up it can happen immediately. And that's continue these negotiations to do this in a responsible way, not in the reckless fashion that it's plain out. So so congressman the president today when he did that unprecedented going to the podium and speaking spoke about why he wants a wall, right? Not just border security a wall or a barrier. He said, whatever you wanna call it. But he wants his wall here. He is. Having a drone fly overhead. And I think nobody knows much more about technology, this type of technology, certainly than I do having drones and various other former of sensors they're all fine. But they're not going to stop the problems that this country has. Says nobody knows more about drone technology than he does. Do you think that is true? I absolutely do not believe that's true. Just this last week President Trump proclaimed that he knows more than the generals within the department offense in the armed services. It's untrue. Look, I was down antelope wells, just after we lost young Jacqueline the seven year old who was the first child that we learned about who lost her life. And then now young Philippa what I was down in antelope wells at one of the port of entries. They didn't even have access to water the water was contaminated. It was not drinkable. They could not cook with it. They could not bait with it and not just for those that are seeking asylum or for the agents themselves, the president should understand the infrastructure investments that are needed at the port and not just on the southern border with Mexico. The ports in Canada and the water ports as well. That's where these dollars should be going as opposed to this reckless ridiculous wall that the president continues to advocate for I don't know if he'd just. Ben, ferguson. But you know, he was echoing what many think who support Trump right, which is that now that you Democrats have the power you are going to use it to try to oust the president from office prematurely, congressman Adam Smith, who's taking over the House Armed Services committee talked about impeachment today. And here's what he said. It's not too soon to be talking about. We'll have to decide whether or not it's the correct course of action, but certainly we should be discussing it. Asking those questions and figuring out what the best course of action is he says it's not too soon to be talking about impeachment. Do you agree? I personally believe that we need to ensure that the special counsel Mr. Mueller is able to conduct his investigation is able to complete his work, and I would hope Mr. Ferguson would agree that he should be able to conduct his investigation unimpeded and present the facts, not just to the congress, but Merican people and only then we'll find out where those facts leads. So that's my position on this. And I fully support making sure that the special counsel can conclude his investigation present his facts. And then we'll have a conversation and see where those facts lead us on. I appreciate your time. Thanks so much. Thanks for having the air. All right, next, the United States debt two trillion dollars higher tonight. Then when president Donald J Trump took office what happened to his promise? We'd have to start paying down debt. We have a lot of debt. Limit start paying down debt. Plus can Robert Muller? Indict Trump Wylie's president Nancy Pelosi today opening the door to that being possible. But if she right.
