another way we're going on offense against this virus I want to thank the governor her support as secretary most of rising for everything that that she's done for their assistance in getting out some of the drug that's necessary to pursue the trials that you're gonna hear about today and from there I'll introduce governor known to make a couple comments and then our physicians Dr Allison Suttle cyclotron specifics thank you good morning everyone we're continuing to every single day across the state in South Dakota allowing science and facts to drive our decision making to fight covert nineteen throughout the state fortunately thanks to all of the people that live in the states we're doing well we've got to the spread has been slow down if we had taken no actions whatsoever the original modeling and projections had us speaking in the middle of April so what we've been able to do by putting in mitigation efforts limiting group sizes telling people to stay home focusing on hygiene and washing of hands we've been able to push that peek off and get it into a situation to our healthcare systems can deal with this virus and take care of people today we're very excited to have an announcement that talks about us going on offense against covert nineteen in our state we are going to be the first state in the nation to run a state wide clinical trial and hydrochloric when they will be used to fight culverted nineteen and the team behind me Sanford health health has helped lead this effort throughout the last week I've been in direct communication with the White House with president trump's team spoken with vice president pence Jered Kushner the chief of staff many within the task force on making sure that they knew what we wanted to do here in South Dakota that we had all of our health systems on board in partnering with us not only will Stanford be leading the effort but that a Vera and monument will be participating as well and that this would be the first ever state indoor state back to state wide clinical trial available in the United States to help take care of our people here that would not only treat patients but it would also give us the data we need to be prepared to fight this virus long into the future over the weekend we received the initial first doses of the drug and we will get this trial up and running and my understanding is that there may be some patients already receiving this today thanks to the leadership of Sanford health and are in these systems other medical teams and for every era and monument being willing to partner with us I'm I'm excited about what's ahead there's so many things today they can get discouraging we see increasing positive cases in the state of South Dakota we see new people and families being impacted yet we know that all of this has been expected for weeks we've been talking about the fact that we would see this virus com the science of the virus tells us we can't stop it but that we can slow it down and that we can take care of people while we're dealing with it and this today this announcement will make sure that we do that in the best way possible and we're going on offense to help every single person deal with this virus and be willing to fight it and get better and go home to their families our leaders here have collaborated with my administration throughout the fight and I'm just so proud that they're willing to respond in this unprecedented manner leading national research efforts as well so I'm going to let doctor settled I go into the details of the trial and how many people will be impacted and what this will benefit not just for our state for the country Dr subtle thanks governor so I'd like to thank the governor and secretary Paulson rise then this is an excellent opportunity and just a fabulous day I think I it's on unprecedented times that we face and it calls for unprecedented measures and getting all the health systems in one state together to come together with the support of the health department and the state we really have an option and we have hope for south Dakotans it's a it shows how public health in the state and community health systems can really come together that when there is truly a pandemic or when there is an emergency we put aside our differences and really come together to to help the communities that we serve it's not often that a physician faces an unknown illness it doesn't come around very much we know how to treat pneumonia we know how to treat sepsis we know how to treat influenza this is a new disease that our physicians have no treatment options for so it takes research and it takes a lot of information and data to determine what is a successful treatment what is the therapy that we can use for a patient with covert nineteen and by using research and by doing clinical trials we can determine if medications like Hydroxycut Laura Quinn can have an impact on the disease progression in it brings hope as a physician I want to know that what I'm prescribing is going to make a difference for that patient it's not going to do harm it's actually gonna help that patient there's going to be two different components to the clinical trials the first component is a registry trial and that's for patients who have called in nineteen disease they're positive for covert nineteen those patients will be inpatient or outpatient and they will have the option to receive hydroxy core quit in the inpatient setting that they can receive hydroxy core could with the is it for my son and on the outpatient setting they can receive the hydroxy Corcoran so now that the state has been able to get enough samples and enough of the medication every south Dakotan who has hurt who has called in nineteen can have that discussion with their physician am I a candidate in my good options received hydroxy Corcoran to help fight this disease the second side of the clinical trial is an actual clinical trial that is randomized and that's for patients that have been exposed to cold it nineteen that's health care workers that have been exposed that could either receive the placebo or receive hydroxy Corcoran the second part of that is those high risk individuals that we've all been talking about those with age greater than sixty those that have chronic medical conditions if those individuals have been exposed let's say they live in a household of someone with cold at nineteen they could receive the hydroxy Corcoran or the placebo the way the hydroxy Corcoran works is that you take it similar to is the pack you take a loading dose and then you take it for about four or five days but it stays in your body for up to fifty days for anywhere from thirty to fifty days so it it will help those individuals that might be exposed to potentially fight the elements we know the hydroxyl or couldn't R. has the potential to worker we are learning that it has the potential to work by preventing the virus from entering the cell that prevents the virus from spreading the only way of virus works as it can affect another person and another person another person so if we prevent the virus from entering the human cell we can stop the virus from spreading we also think that address the core could might work by preventing inflammatory response so what we hope to do today by having these clinical trials by offering this medication to all of those that might be impacted by cove it is to really provide a treatment to provide hope to increase the information that we know all about medications and to learn what works this virus will be with us for a while and if we can learn today what works and what doesn't then we will have a treatment in the future thank you let's open it up for questions yes doctor archer sorry about that doctor archer would you like to make a few comments that be great thank you president of the the governor and the and the state department of health for this opportunity were hopeful and like Alice and I share the hope demonstrates an impact on this only a couple miles currently running U. S. so this transportation your participate really as potentially groundbreaking or us our our clinical research department of monument health will lead our collaboration with the state Sanford and Avera we look forward to this opportunity yes and Dr Ericsson would you like to share as well thank you governor yes and I'd like to share my thanks to the governor and secretary for the work they've done and I appreciate the opportunity to join virtually as doctor archer and I are attending virtually today also want to thank god my colleagues Dr archer and doctors all over the work and things they've done on this we're very supportive of this clinical trial and I think it's a great opportunity to do statewide research I think we have much to learn about the virus and the disease and the various treatment opportunities so the fact that we can put this in a clinical trial in your research really will help move some of this former I think we still need to practice all the things the governor you share every day at social distancing physical distancing stay home hand hygiene it's certainly clean services devices because we don't have a vaccine or clear treatment at.

"So I guess I just would caution the American. People like why is John Bolton? Don Trump, so interested in war with Iran, when it really does nothing for them or the American people. Well, Don, thank you so much for your call rule. Mark wrecked. Would you like to respond to him? Yeah. I mean, I think there is a broad consensus in Washington on both the democratic and Republican side than if you could snap your fingers and have regime change in the Islamic Republic, you would do it. I lord. I've had happy conversations about the collapse of the clerical regime would German officials, who are the most pests civic of our European allies. So the issue is, you know what would you want to do? You think you can engage in sums actions that would be helpful in that direction. Or do you believe an engagement in that capitalism commerce consumed the savage beast? I mean, I think it's fair to say that the administration is quite dubious on the notion of engagement that giving the Islamic Republic billions of dollars is not going to moderate, the Islamic Republic. It's just going to make it stronger. The, you know, the there's a lot about the Iran policy of this administration that. Doesn't make a lot of sense. And part of that is because it is unwilling to do certain things. Most of those things would have to do with applying pressure to the Islamic republic's aggression, regionally. So you're not going to have a type of containment strategy that say you had against the Soviet Union during the Cold War. You're just going to have I think the use of sanctions and probably not that much else. Well, we are talking about Heskey leading tensions between Washington and Tehran.

"There's like this massive organization of thugs who come and beat people up basically who are in support of the Islamic Republic. And so what gave people the courage to come out on mass like that in spite of that threat. I think more than anything the felt betrayed by the system because among those people in the street in two thousand nine you also had a lot of people who are supporting the system. This system is very it's a very strange system. It's not a dictatorship. Like like a typical dictatorship. You would see in the Iraq of Saddam Hussein or Libya of Kadhafi. It's neither a democracy. It's kind of in between I would say sort of like an authoritarian theocracy which allows I mean, you have a super meter who is the big boss in Iran, but it still gives space for elections because in Iran, you go, and you vote you vote for the parliament you vote for the local elections and you vote for the president. So it gives you the space of choice. Even if the candidates are pre-selected, it still allows a possibility of choosing someone who's not the worst. Let's say so that's what happened in nine hundred ninety seven when Hutton he got elected. Yes, he was part of the system. Yes. It would never challenge the supreme leader. But he was someone who wanted to open up support a reform inside the system, but what happened in two thousand nine is that people were like. Wait a minute. So you gave us this right to vote. Okay. We went to we went to the polling stations. But you're stealing our vote. You're making Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. You're the winner. Why we think that's what they used to say? We think it's his main rival mirrow San Moussavi who is the winner..

"I would bomb out of him. Darker secret place with Brian suits on KFI AM, six forty. More stimulating talk is our number two that are secret place. Brian she'd sit here until midnight. It was this week in nineteen eighty thirty eight years ago that the attempted rescue of American citizens American hostages being held in the US embassy in Tehran came to a burning abortive end in a desolate piece of desert, south of Tehran, Iran, the Islamic Republic of Iran, code-named desert one in the army, we have a process called the after action review, and what we do is. We take the mission that we were given and we start with what was the mission. What went right? And then what went wrong, and how can we sustain the good stuff? And how can we solve for the bad stuff? So. Applying that process, let's do that for operation eagle claw. As it was called by the Carter administration in nineteen eighty. November fourth nineteen Seventy-nine a group of Iranian students and I'm doing air fingers. Here stormed the US embassy in Tehran, taking more than sixty American hostages. It was not the first time in nineteen seventy nine. The American embassy had been overrun it had happened a few months earlier, and it only happened for a few hours and the Iranian government, the newly installed Islamic revolutionary Iranian government. Very quickly controlled the students and this pretty much put to rest anyone's question about whether the students were organically demonstrating or whether or not they actually were organized by the new Iranian government, the very very very anti-american government or if or not anyway, they were for the Islamic revolutionary guard corps. The elite of the newly installed regime. They observed and this was a test in the months before November to see how the Americans would respond. Well, the American president Jimmy Carter responded as he would become legendary for and that would be a feckless limp emasculated way. He made protestations through our embassy in Tehran and made made strong statements that they they knew that he would not actually follow up on. And so the Iranians cleared the students out, but they learned their lesson about Jimmy Carter that they could get whatever they wanted Adam Jimmy Carter. So November fourth nineteen Seventy-nine. This time thousands of students very well equipped and armed. Very with very detailed maps and briefings about where to go in the sprawling American embassy compound quickly overran, the embassy and rounded up all but a handful of American diplomats famously there were a half dozen or more who were outside the embassy when this happened and being smart enough not to go back to the embassy. They were taking him by the Canadians, and if you've seen the movie Argo. Which is a pretty good depiction of how they were taken out of Iran. One one gigantic oversight in that movie is the role of the Canadians played the Canadians had a far more active role than that that movie and Ben Affleck showed you, but regardless it, it looks good. The period clothing and everything Argo is a terrific movie. There's never been a movie done about the hostage crisis a four hundred forty four total total day hostage crisis. So. The mission was this. And I don't wanna get into any of the background about the Shah Mohammed razor palavi or his father who was deposed by the British Soviets in World War Two or the nineteen Fifty-three coup by the CIA. None of that crap. If you're wearing a uniform and your mission in one thousand nine hundred eighty was to come up with a plan to account for every single one of those hostages and bring them safely, humbly US you really don't care about any of the cultural. Baggage baggage any of that crap. So that is not a planning consideration for us. All we know is it's a non permissive environment on the ground as we say, and the people there f hate us. Oh, well, that's how it works. Generally when America goes to war. So the mission is. Go into the embassy compound and safely. Remove all the American citizens and their dependents who were there and guarantee their safe exit out of Iran to whatever landing zone, you want in Turkey and Saudi Arabia, whatever just get them out. If you have time a secondary mission is to destroy sensitive parts of the embassy to avoid any sort of embarrassing revelations or whatever, but that that really is not your primary mission your primary mission is to get those hostages home. Because this thing is dragging on that makes America look impotent, and it's an election year. And Jimmy Carter wants to be elected. So come up with a plan practice the plan trained for the plan equipped for the plan and standby, hopefully, we don't need the plan that. Is your mission? You are general vodka. Or your Charlie Beckwith, Colonel Charlie Beckwith, head of delta force. Dell. The forest was newly organized special forces operational detachment. Delta had been put together in the mid and. Mid seventies. Mid to late seventies to mimic, the British Special Air services. SAS British SAS are to this day. The most legendary special force organizing World War Two and from the fifties. Sixties to the m the the embassy raid in nineteen eighty to this day. The SAS are still considered some of the best special forces on earth. Well, the United States army wanted to mimic right down to the organization of the SAS that is in troops and squadrons instead of companies and battalions the Rangers are in companies and battalions of the ranger regiment. The special forces green berets are in operational detachments who are parts of companies or parts of battalions, but delta force imitated SAS, the British SAS, delta force organiz. In troops and squadrons. Their first commander charging Charlie Beckwith, actually went through SAS selection. And then he actually did a liaison to an exchange tour where he actually commanded an SAS troop for for a year or two. So he was the ideal guy to organize delta force and organiz it's early selection process, and the whole thing so by nineteen Seventy-nine these guys had been selected they've been trained they had one of the largest small arms budget and the entire US military. They were in many cases guys who were not even unconventional enough for special forces. But there were a lot of them. It was clear that they were good. And that if anybody was going to be handed this mission to take the US embassy hostages out. It would be delta force. But delta force was not a standalone force. They had no planes. They didn't have vehicles. They didn't have submarines they didn't have satellites. They were just a bunch of guys at Fort Bragg North Carolina under a new thing called so calm special operations command. So your mission is get these sixty or so people out of hostile territory, a little enormous city a sprawling city of four to five million over a mile high in the winter in November possibly and get them out without a gigantic firefight, killing hundreds of Iranian civilians, and probably resulting in many dozens of of your people's deaths. So that's your mission. So what should this look like what is right? Look like before we get to what happened. Let's talk about what was supposed to happen. So what was operation eagle claw supposed to look like on April twenty fourth nineteen eighty right after this. It is a dark secret place. Bryan suits in here.

"Factor dot com studio inside of the beltway, happy Labor Day to you. I know you're stuck in traffic. I know some of you got a late start. And you're listening to the podcast. Have you tried to get an early start? And you're listening to the broadcast live, but welcome I've got a special show for you on Labor Day, and it revolves around the turn in American Paul's that occurred when Donald Trump became president vis-a-vis, the Islamic Republic of Iran in particular, the turn taken under secretary of state, Mike Pompeo and his previous director of policy now special envoy for Ron Brian hook. And I want to focus on what the Islamic Republic of Iran means to us as you're driving as you're thinking about why am I doing that it's because of the threat assessment, and because I sat down with secretary of state Pompeo early in the summer of two thousand eighteen and had this exchange about Iran. Boy, I sure hope not I hope the Ayatollah and solo Monte the prime drivers of Iranian threat posture. I hope they recognize that whatever decision other countries make about staying in the JCP away or however they proceed I hope he they understand that if they begin to wrap up their nuclear program the wrath of the entire world will follow up on them. And so it is not in their practical best interest to begin that, whatever happens to the JCP away. I think the Iranians understand that. It would it would be wholly separate from whether they spent a couple of extra centrifuges if they began to move towards a weapons program. This'll be something the entire world would find unacceptable, and we ended up down a path that I don't think is in the best interests of Iran other actors in the Middle East or indeed the world you when you say the wrath of the entire world. I think of the new entente, and I'm talking then for the benefit of the audience, not just of Israel. But if Bahrain of Egypt Jordan of Iraq of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates are great friends in in the Middle East, would they support that wrath descending on Iran in the form of American military action if they moved? Yeah, when I say wrath don't confuse that for military action. Those are when I when I say wrath. I mean, the the moral opprobrium and economic power that fell upon them that that's what I'm speaking to. I'm not talking to military action here. I just I truly hope that's never the case is not in anyone's best interest for that. But make no mistake. Trump's have been very clear. Iran will not get a nuclear weapon nor start its weapons program on this president's watch. And I've heard some say that we've, you know, we've separated from our allies on this issue of of Iran. I don't think that's the case when I talked to my my Arab friends Israelis all of those in the region, they are right alongside us. And even when I speak to the Europeans with whom we have a difference about the JCP away. They to understand the threat that Iran presents whether it's malign activity with with Hezbollah or in Yemen when Siri on Iraq or its missile program that is watching missiles into airports that westerners travel through. There is a unified understanding of Iran's malevolent behaviour, and it will be will be incredibly United world should Iran. Choose to head down. On a nuclear weapons bath, you mentioned, Gerald. So the money they only understand for sometimes you're trying to move into Syria where they put the revolutionary guard that could force again. But you're saying we'll just understand if necessary the United States is prepared to do whatever it has to do to stop them from having a nuclear weapon. President Trump's been unambiguous about in his statements that says that Iran will not be able to obtain a nuclear weapon that remember to Hugh, it's important to remind your viewers.
