Fox News' Dana Perino Remembers Colin Powell

"Dana perino, of course, served under George W Bush, new Colin Powell, shed the following on Fox News. But yes, I've long admired him. I remember all edge during the Gulf War. What this man is very impressive. And then the fact that I actually got to meet him and work with him, work under him, really, as the Secretary of State, it is just remarkable as ainsley as you were reading the statement and talking about his life in the previous segment in the previous interview. You realize that this man was such a man of consequence. And a consummate public servant, serving all of those years. And I was surprised to read. He was 84. Because in many ways, to me, he was ageless. In addition to all of the amazing work that he did as a military leader, one thing that people might not remember is he started an organization called America's promise. And that really encouraged civic engagement and volunteer work. And there was a little red wagon logo, and I'm a good friend as a race sale who had worked for president George H. W. Bush, then worked in his office and correspondence. And she would tell me such amazing stories about him. And then fast forward. I remember as a deputy press secretary standing in the back of the room, the east room one day and there was a, I believe it was Karzai, who achman Karzai from Afghanistan was giving a speech. And I was standing in the back of the room and Colin Powell just happened to be next to me. And I remember being very impressed by augment caramelized speech. And I said something to Colin Powell I said, wow. He is a very impressive. And Colin Powell gave me advice that I've lived with ever since, and he said, Dana, just beware of people who might be want to be dictators who speak very good English. And that was so interesting. But if you think about all the leaders that we've seen, come up through the ranks that America likes to support and then unfortunately turns out to be somebody that you question in the end. I would also say that he was a great stature. The way that he conducted himself, I really commend his books to people out there, young people who are looking to learn about leadership. He really was a consummate professional. Dana perino, who served in the Bush administration, reflected on the passing of general Colin

Servicemembers dad are setting up the first big congressional oversight probe off the current white house the by administration had been fielding questions from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle about the afghanistan withdrawal since the august thirty first deadline was set back in april but the requests for documents and testimony ratcheted up after the taliban took control of kabul on august fourteenth and intensified further after the deadly suicide bombing at the hamad karzai airport on august twenty. Sixth the push for accountability is coming from both political parties but differences in approach between democrats and republicans are already setting the stage for a pitched partisan battle for democrats. The fight will reveal whether their loyalties lie with party or with truth after they spent four years criticizing republicans for not conducting rigorous oversight of president donald trump for republicans. This moment marks an opportunity to attack. The biden administration after a series of decisions led to a speedy taliban takeover that put both us citizens and afghans endanger the congressional fight will be waged on both substance and process democrats control both chambers of congress so republicans don't have the power to issue subpoenas or call for testimony on their own and recent years.

In a stunning report published Sunday, the New York Slim's relay that roughly 600 students, staff and the relatives have been left stranded in a safe house in Kabul amid the Taliban's violet take over the country. There are hopes of evacuation debt. So let's assume 600 of them are citizens. Or dual citizens. Isn't 600 more than 250. Mr. It is. I think it is. Ladies and gentlemen.

You got to keep them separated. It's come out and play right. Well, so I thought, Okay, that's a good social distancing song. You do much to it, right? They didn't do that. They changed the lyric completely. And so instead of keep them separated is a you gotta go get vaccinated. Uh oh. This is really bad. Come on, number number one.

So this government why are you doing that to me? Why are you hopefully got spinal walls? His playlist I wire opening up the spinal tap. I know what kind of fun Uh, next segment. We will be Speaking of governors talking with Dr Scott Jensen, one of the gubernatorial candidates that has been declared 7 55 Today, tomorrow and Wednesday. We will be doing our gubernatorial segments, with all the declared candidates so far, at least. Switching gears. We are down to the the remaining hours in our ridiculous set withdrawal time of Afghanistan, so they have today and and tomorrow a lot of concern in the region. We apparently intercepted five different attempts to shoot down. Planes leaving the airport with our our anti missile. Uh, you know, a raise at the at the Hamad Karzai Airport. We had the U. S. Military conducted drone strike on Isis terrorists. UM Sunday in Kabul, eliminating an intimate through an an imminent threat to the airport. The strike was reportedly on a car carrying multiple suicide bombers who were en route to the airport, according to the reports. The strike comes hours after the State Department did send out an emergency alert during the early morning hours in Afghanistan on Sunday, warning US citizens to immediately leave the airport, which makes it very difficult to leave if you're told to leave the airport right due to the serious threat The strike on Sunday comes after the U. S. Military launched two separate attack on Isis terrorists Friday, killing tune terrorists that the administration described as simply high profile, although they declined to identify who the terrorists were and if they were even specifically and directly involved with the attack that killed 13 of the members of our armed forces earlier last week. U. S Central Command. CENTCOM issued a new statement late on Sunday evening regarding the strike that Isis the strike that was carried out earlier in the day against the target. That was purportedly involving an ISIS plot against the airport in Kabul. And they said, We are aware of reports of civilian casualties following our strike on a vehicle in Kabul. Today We are still assessing the results of the strike, which we know disrupted an imminent to Isis K threat to the airport. We know that there were substantial and powerful subsequent explosions resulting from the destruction of the vehicle, including a large amount of explosive material inside that may have caused Additional casualties. It goes on to say it's unclear what may have happened. We are investigating further, We would be deeply saddened by any potential loss of innocent life. He basically opened up another war front in our attempt to get out of there. Yeah, I am not a fan of these sort of indiscriminate drone strikes that were a hallmark of the Obama administration. It's very much on brand that you know, people have been saying this is The Biden administration so far very much looks like an Obama third term. So you know this would be quite on brand for that. If that were the case, you know, and this will be debated for a lot of years to come. And that is, you know. Our mission there our goal there the way it was to find initially one that ended up becoming the 20 years that we were there the relative peace that we were dealing with the status quo in the region. Whether or not that could have been maintained again will keep saying it we only had between 2500 and 3000 troops in the area. And in Afghanistan and in that moment in time Over a year and a half. We hadn't lost a single military life, and there's a lot of debate swirling around whether or not that would have continued to stay that way. Most people agree, though, and this is the point that I wanted to land on. Most people seem to agree that Biden didn't need to leave right now. He didn't have to follow. Any of what Trump laid out last year. He didn't follow what Trump's plan was with the Taliban. He didn't I'm tired of people saying, Oh, he's just following Trump saying this is Trump's plan. If you're upset about to blame Trump No, he did not follow Trump's plan at all. There were conditions attached to the withdrawal of American troops in Afghanistan that had been that had failed to have been met. And even if he did, just for the sake of argument To say Biden did you follow Trump's plan to which he didn't say that he did, And this resulted that still Biden's fault. She still had the plan in front of him. We still know he could change anything. He wanted to change. We know that, but just the fact that he is the president gives him the ability to do that. And he didn't do that. The other consensus we have is he didn't need to do it this way. You didn't need to do it now and the way that he has conducted this escape, and this withdrawal has been nothing but an abject failure that has cost American lives. US. Officials made clear at the time of the at the time that the agreement of the Trump administration with the Trump administration made with the Taliban was conditions based. And the failure of intra Afghan peace talks to reach a negotiated settlement would have nullified the requirement to withdraw one day before the dojo deal. A top aide to chief U. S negotiators. Army. Leela's ad said that the agreement was not irreversible that there was no obligation for the United States withdraw troops if the Afghan parties Are unable to reach agreement or if the Taliban show bad faith during negotiations. Those negotiations were intended to begin within a month of the deal being signed, but were delayed amid disputes between the Taliban and the Afghan governor amid fits and starts. The negotiations have not produced any outcome. By the time Biden announces withdrawal decision in April, nor have they done so since that right there tells you there was no binding. With this agreement whatsoever. There were conditions that were that were supposed to have been met before the United States started the withdrawal of troops. Those conditions were not met. So we had every opportunity to say no. We are not leaving right now. We are not going to. We're not doing this just so Joe Biden can get a photo op into a victory lap on 9 11. That's the reason why all this is happening. Guys don't let anybody tell you different. The mother of U. S..

And then the rest of his administration went wild because no one in their knows what the what to do. Following the taliban takeover in kabul us officials there gave the islamic extremist group. The names of american citizens green card holders and afghan allies so they could be allowed to enter the taliban control perimeter around hamid karzai international airport according to politico so all. The taliban did thank you. You came to us now. We don't have to search for you and we can kill you. This is the dumbest thing ever and then couple that with the fact that obviously americans are stuck there and i'm hearing reports that it's over ten thousand. Have this press. What's john kirby not The spokesperson for the The department of defense talking about there's a thousand people there or fifteen hundred americans. I'm hearing numbers. Reportedly that may be as high as ten times. That and the biding is prepared to leave. Americans behind for the sake of hopefully winning an election or In twenty twenty two instead of just using the troops that are there to take back the ballgame air force

A local health official said the attacks killed at least sixty afghan civilians and many more are still fighting for their lives. Our chief foreign affairs correspondent yaroslav trofimov says the blasts of added turmoil to what was already a highly tense evacuation with all these attacks these no access to the airport right now because the gates through which people have become mass murder scenes. We're talking about multiple multiple casualties there. It's really the carnage a lot of the european and other countries that were assisting the us in this effort Working together have already health evacuation flights from candidate to the netherlands to denmark and the us itself had warned. That doesn't there's not a lot of time left for this fights because the military needs to dismantle its infrastructure and joy on troops that are more than five thousand new troops on the airport ahead of that august thirty first deadline that president biden it sets the window of opportunity for people to leave was rapidly shrinking ahead of this explosion and now it's pretty much shut justice of people making out a digestive people leaving afghanistan on its flights are very slim and we're still have hundreds more than a thousand and probably the american citizens stranded in the country equal or larger number of european canadian citizens and then there are tens if not hundreds of thousands of afghans with valid reason too few of the taliban who will not make it.

"Pentagon had a press briefing a remarkable remarkable press briefing for what was not answered and the way that they actually skirted the real issues. This is a man who is a disgrace to the uniform. He wants war. He is the official press spokesman for the pentagon. Admiral john kirby who was telling us The state of america in afghanistan. Today video cut eleven. Play cops john who's guarding the. Us embassy right now who will guard after the us military pulls out. Are there any contingencies. I do you have an agreement with the taliban and in terms of the airport. Do you have an agreement with any nato allies to keep like the turks to keep the airport open after the us. Military pulse out. So i understand i know. There's no military assets guarding the embassy compound the us embassy is operating out of hamid karzai international airport as for the turks they are still on ground at the airport assisting in this security mission that we have there. I won't speak for their intentions one way or another going forward but there's not going to be when the mission is over and when we are leaving the airport the airport will not not be the united states our responsibility anymore so how it gets managed going forward will be something that that the taliban who are now in kabul we'll have to manage them on their own and i assume with with the international community but that won't be an american responsibility. How did that man get to be the the official press spokesperson for the pentagon. How did that man get to be an admiral. How on earth did he get to be an admiral in the us. Navy is the question. john.

"karzai" Discussed on What It Takes

"Hi it's alice. I had a different episode in the works for this week but then afghanistan happened. The stories of chaos and desperation are continuing to unfold there. And while we're not a news podcast. The academy of achievement has in its archives. Something we thought would interest you this week. It's a speech in an interview with hamid karzai. The man who vanquished the taliban twenty years ago and became president karzai spoke at the academy's international summit in june of two thousand two full of hope for a new peaceful democratic afghanistan. I'm very very very optimistic. I'm sure of ghanistan will do very well. Because the afghan people saw adamant to make it good for them. This quest for dignity. This quest for respect discuss for the identity of gaston is so strong in afghanistan. They were not allowed this country to go back the way toss as we watched thousands of afghans during the past week swarming the hamid karzai international airport desperately attempting to flee their country under taliban rule. We thought you might find karzai's words in two thousand two fascinating and heartbreaking. This is what it takes a podcast about passion vision and perseverance from the academy of achievement. I'm your host. Alex went clear at a main. This child is gifted. And i heard that enough that i started to believe if you have the opportunity not a perfect opportunity and you don't take it. You may never have another child it all so clear. It was just like the picture started to form itself. They knew which ally could prevail over the truth darkness over light there over life every day. I wake up and decide today. I'm going to love my life. Decide if they're going to break your leg or when you're gonna play stay out of there and then along companies differential experiences that you don't look for you. Don't plan for the boy. You better not miss him. When hamas cars. I was a young man. He worked to end the soviet occupation of afghanistan then a little more than a decade later with a motorcycle in a small band of men. He launched the movement to oust the taliban his own father who had served in the government in the nineteen sixties was assassinated by taliban members karzai appealed to the united states and the rest of the international community to help overthrow the taliban but it wasn't until the tax of nine eleven that that help arrived in the form of a us invasion hamad. Karzai was victorious as we know and hailed a hero at the time. He attended the academy of achievement summit in dublin to tell his dramatic story. He was serving as chairman of the interim administration a month after the summit. He was chosen as his country's interim president. By afghanistan's grand council called the loya jirga in two years. After that he was elected by democratic popular vote. He remained president until two thousand fourteen by that time though his relationship with the united states had soured badly each blamed the other for the corruption in the afghan government one american diplomat even suggested karzai had become a drug addict cars. I lost his next election to ashraf ghani. The president who just fled afghanistan last week as the taliban marched back into kabul after twenty years hamad karzai remains in afghanistan and he made news during the past week when he met with taliban leaders to try to bring about a peaceful transfer of power and spare the lives of civilians. It's another world from the one he described to the academy of achievement in dublin. Back in two thousand and two. I received the invitation to tom today. To this distinguished gathering some two and a half months ago one of the attractions real major one was that i would be here among the distinguished Been also seeing the young leaders that would be shaping the world tomorrow because in my own country of ghanistan it was precisely this generation of accounts that had nothing to do no indication nor life danger all around fleeing and simply zero opportunity for future for me. If there's anything that. I can remember as an accomplishment would be the fact that the young afghans have now pursuant to go to school and learn and ghanistan now all of that. It's now in afghanistan trombley three in the morning. So if i fall asleep wake me up and i traveled nine hours. I believe to be here. And i'm here just two days before the law. Jirga there's the grand council of ghanistan to decide the next government of ghanistan so for staying with to destroy aghanistan. I might lose some votes but this is so important.

America's Longest War: 20 Years of Missteps in Afghanistan

"Begin with the final fiasco the images. We've been getting all day. Tell the chaotic story. The us continues. Its chaotic. exodus out of afghanistan. The withdrawal from afghanistan is a poorly planned debacle. The collapse of afghanistan represents another catastrophic failure of our political establishment. President biden is apparently delusional about the disaster in afghanistan but at the heart of the criticism is a contradiction that nobody in the american media or foreign policy. Blob wants to grapple with and it's this the only way for there to have been an orderly transfer of power in the wake. The us departure was for the process to have been negotiated as a transfer of power and to negotiate a transfer of power required acknowledging. And here's the hard part for the. Us that power was actually transferring. Therein lies the contradiction an orderly exit required admitting defeat and negotiating the unthinkable surrender to the taliban instead the us preferred to maintain the fiction that it was handing over power to the afghan government. Whatever that was and two former president ashraf ghani we would rather risk the chaos. We witnessed that admit defeat after all. It's mostly not our lives on the line anymore. But rather the lives of afghans who helped us over the past twenty years and focusing on the chaotic scenes at hamad karzai airport also. Let's commentators avoid asking the bigger questions. How is it that twenty straight years of. Us lies about progress in afghanistan could be so starkly exposed in a single weekend. And there'd be so little interrogation of that. Failure

What was going to happen when he was negotiating with them? If they attacked the United States, and I want you to listen very closely. Check this out. We had very strong conversation. I told him up front. I said, Look, before we start. Let me just tell you right now. But if anything bad happens to Americans or anybody else, or have you ever come over to our land? We will hit you with a force that no country has ever been hit with before a force so great that you won't even believe it and your village and we know where it is, and I named it. Will be the first one. Mr President. I want to interrupt right there. You said this to who? Yeah. Who did you? You said to to who? To Mullah Baradar. Who is probably the top person. Nobody really knows who that that person is. But I would say that's probably the top person and it seems to be that's the way it's rolling right now. But I had a very strong conversation. I also had a good conversation with him. We talked for a while after that. That was the primary point I was making and he understood it. You hear that? So President Trump when he was in office, was speaking with a member of the Taliban leadership again. You don't have to agree or disagree with that strategy. But it's clear that the other strategy of talking with them and then abandoning the country and just taking their word for it, that they were going to let people escape freely. While they're now beating people in the streets, and there's a horror unfolding. At Karzai airport in Kabul. It's obviously a failure.

A week ago, Kandahar was thought to be a place that Taliban would not be able to take. There's word today they've broken through the front lines.

But while all this is unfolding, there is a perception The world is standing by hoping the Afghan national forces can step in to fight them off.

I had the first one. And, uh, Got into an accident. They gave it total loss. And so I said, Let me by the last year and it's been a great truck. Great truck, solid truck. I'm having a little problem since I bought the truck. With a with the backup camera. And what happens is is when I brought the truck back. The back of camera wasn't working. And, um, when it rains, or when I washed the truck, the back of the truck, the camera comes on. This comes on. But when it's dry couple days later, they back up camera doesn't work. You got it. You got a bad connection somewhere in the water. Is completing your connection. Are you saying that? Are you saying the vehicle is off your washing the vehicle and that camera will just come on in the vehicle. No, no, you know, wash wash the truck and then let's say I put it in reverse. And then it works works so it I'm thinking of having to do something with maybe the ground or or you've got a short somewhere because Went without the water. Your circuits not being completed. Yeah, The water is actually completing the circuit, and that's not a good thing either. Is there on this screen when you look at it? Is there any water? Being retained in that camera, Or is it a good clear picture? No, it's it's a clear picture of perfectly still. So what? What I'm leaning towards there is some kind of short. Your car's been act. Yeah, there is come to some kind of short coming off it. Coming off the back of the camera because that camera has a plugged into a harness right there somewhere. So something is that's their tailgate. Maybe work. Yes, changes. Yes, Yes. Are you worry shorts when you clean your truck, your neighborhood your camera? No. Maybe the Russians at my camera VC of Ah, but, uh, that's what I'm leaning towards. I think I think there's something loose in the wire. The harnesses something my opinion seven years ago. They hadn't perfected the backup cameras yet. I mean, they weren't standard until 16. Yeah, 13. Not every card still had a backup camera. Listen, the quality of these new cars picture on those camera. Oh, yeah. New Karzai. New Forerunner. Yes. Yeah, my new Tundra, my cellar that backup camera. But, yeah, you got a short in there somewhere that is being you know the when you wash it, It's closing the circuit with the water. And you don't want that. That that could cause all kinds of problems backing up. And, Yeah, I get that get that looked at And he brought any any suggestions on where I should look at first, you know, taking down the the tailgate in that area there, or are you I would just follow. Would just follow the camera back. I mean, it's going to go into a harness somewhere and and that camera's gonna have a a plug very close to where that camera is, because when they assemble that vehicle Um, that that's what they do. It's it's not hard wired per se into a harness. There's a plugs. You just gotta follow it back. Either Get up underneath it somehow. Try to find it. I think it's going to be in that area. Right. And the other thing I want to ask you. Is it possible to change the camera and updated to a better camera? I'm sure there's cameras. Yeah, I'm sure There's little this whole micro cameras. Yeah, update the clarity. I do notice that my my cousin has a 2020 GMC Denali beautiful truck. And his camera is like you said, It's crystal clear these new cameras. There are unbelievable.

"Talking about his need and has promised to get out of Syria, Afghanistan and stop being the world's policeman. He sat down with Margaret Brennan on CBS last night as is tradition. The president sits down with the network with the Super Bowl. They talked about all those things and more. But I always go to guy like embassador Ryan Crocker, if I want to know the reality on the ground and with the with the stakes or because instead of sitting on the sideline in teaching and academic course or working at think tank. He got his hands dirty big time. And when the rack was at his worse ambassador Crocker was at his best Hilo. Geno, portray as Americans helped poll do do the impossible. And that's had the surge work diplomatically and militarily, and it's some sensational work with a very tough guy and Hamid Karzai in Afghanistan and ambassador, thanks so much for joining us today. Well, Bryan, thanks for having me Besser first off. I noticed what you said you said. I'm concerned not about the canister was stand war ending. But how it seems to be ending? Why? The. The hard truth is, Brian you you don't you don't end or by pulling your forces on the battlefield, I think President Obama's approved that in Iraq. Pull everybody out. And then we got Iran in the eastern Islamic state in the west President Trump seems to be talking about doing the same thing in Afghanistan. And in Afghanistan, we've seen that movie. If we go the Taliban's coming back, and they're gonna bring with him. And that's the team that brought us nine eleven and by the way embassador crackers diplomat in residence at Princeton University. So you're close enough to come into studio ambassador. I hope to see you soon. Here's a little. Yeah. Here's a little with the president said cut three. And we'll see what happens with the Taliban. They want peace. They're tired. Everybody's tired. We'd like to have. I don't like endless wars this war. What we're doing? Is gotta stop at. Well, he's right. It's gotta stop at some point. Do you believe the Taliban are tired? No, they're not. They're not tired. They have they've been fighting this war for eighteen years now, and they'll keep right on fighting it, you know, brand negotiation one on one says don't negotiate from a position of weakness. And and that's kind of where we are. We've already telegraphed worn out. That's why it reminds me of the Peres peace. Talks nineteen Seventy-three hell in Vietnam surrender was already established. It was just a question of terms. Vietnam. Didn't have a legacy the way Afghanistan. Does you can either to fight over there with minimum casualties and a minimum commitment? I was there in Kabul. We had over one hundred thousand troops today. We got fourteen thousand. That's not too heavy of a commitment. And it's a good insurance policy to be sure these guys don't come at us again where we live now. Besser I agree with you. But I'm going to take the other side to move this phone because a lot of people don't agree with me. And don't agree with you that listen to the show and our fans of the president, and they are tired. They see this war for seventeen years and say we're supposed to be in and out what happened we've trained three hundred thousand security forces. They now have an air force. Why don't they why don't they control the country? Afghanistan is historically hard to control. He could argue that no government in Afghanistan, at least for the last hundred years have had fully controlled it. But you don't need to they they the government holds all population centers, every provincial capital. They hold most of the main roads, there's a phrase Afghanistan. Good enough. That might be where we are right now. It's not what we would be is. We decided we just don't wanna do it anymore. Would you also agree that we get some of the finest minds together talk about what's next most people. And no one knows this better than you say they're allowed to train and have a safe space in Pakistan as long as we leave that we're always going to have a problem. How do we end that by by staying with for the long haul? One of the things that Pakistanis are doing here is hedging their bets. They washed us walk away after the Soviet defeat to Afghanistan in nineteen eighty nine and our way out the door we slapped sanctions on Pakistan. So they they fuse come. They've seen as go. And as long as they think we're gonna go again, they're not going to turn the Taliban to a mortal enemy of there is I gotta live in that neighborhood. Right. If you want this to get to a better place, stay the course that the price now is one we can afford and a whole lot cheaper than rebuilding Manhattan. Here's what the president said to that question. Cut for. By your intelligence chiefs, though is that you could in that vacuum. See a resurgence of ISIS. See a resurgence in. We'll come back. We have to have very faster plans. We have very good cargo planes. We can come back very quickly. And I'm not leaving. We have a base in Iraq and the basis a fantastic edifice. I was there recently. And I couldn't believe the money that was spent on these massive runways, and these every I've rarely seen anything like it. And it's there, and we'll be there, and frankly, we're hitting the caliphate from Iraq, and as we slowly withdraw from Syria. Yeah. And he also talked about Afghanistan on there. What about going back? What's wrong with point out and just going back because we'd have a presence in Iraq? What's what's the problem when it comes to Syria? Well, look, yeah. Brian retired in two different things here. I've kenniston obviously, we're talking about Syria there. It's it's the same thing. You wanna come back after you? Let your adversary game the high ground and the low ground for that matter. Well, that's a whole lot harder and a whole lot more costly. And we'll also cost lies at a much greater level than if we just stay tight. You know, here's the thing. I've been years the Middle East middle easterners, our adversaries and our allies look at the same thing. Our adversaries don't think we have staying power. They don't think we have commitment. They think they can outlast our allies fear the same thing. So I don't wanna make my allies frayed, especially don't wanna make my adversaries happy, which is pulling out pulling out does. But that's very true. But if you look at the fact that we've been there seventeen years, doesn't that show people that we're not gonna pull out, and if the fact that we went back in and do in Iraq, and you witnesses we didn't take their natural resources. We didn't take over their oil wells. We didn't make them. We didn't put in a puppet government. We let them have elections. And when we did what we said doesn't that gives credibility in that region? If you then compromise that credibility by saying, okay? Our mission accomplished we're done here. That's the message. You're going to get that the Americans pulled out. That's what they do. So all we gotta do is outlasted and that is not. That's just not a good place to be if we do stay in Afghanistan longer. What has to change? I mean, people I've seen to be very happy with the president's change of rules of engagement. The General Mattis said did a good job changing the focus in lifting up morale. But what would you have you have sources that almost nobody else has what are they saying? We're not doing that could expedite the process. In terms of Afghanistan. Yeah. It it really requires that strategic patience that is. So so so hard so very hard to come by in this country. I mean impatience is a virtue for us. That's how we built our country. You know, let's get on with it. Let's get her done. Well, other parts of the world. You can't quite get her done. Sometimes you manage manager problem if you can't fix it right now. I think we need to be in problem management. We've got a force level that I think is a sustainable clearly we have NATO allies in there also providing forces we pull they pool. So it's you know, there's nothing quick coming out of the box no assembly needed. If we had that we wouldn't be here eighteen years on, but we can we can manage this. And again, it's a pretty cheap insurance policy against the prospect of another nine eleven style. Attack. The ones that are left. Are you know, they're hard? They're tough. Wait. We may decide to give up their not the best Ryan Crocker with us. Now, he was in Basseterre Iraq in Afghanistan, and he definitely is personally staked as as we all should be making sure this is an outcome. The keeps America safe. I say this is a lot harder now of during the Obama years the Russians were allowed to come in. We we sat on our hands when Syria fell apart and the Russian saw an opening got nervous about losing a port, and they're now a player for the first time. I believe since the seventies. How much harder is it? Now. Well. The less were there the harder. It gets. You know, the Russians came in they needed to prop up their guy. And in they came now, the Russians are there were there. Probably time for a conversation on what happens next in Syria. But Syria isn't Afghanistan Syria has not come after us where we live at home Afghanistan has as I said, Brian we've already seen this movie. The same actors are all set to back on center stage, and that would be telephone and Al Qaeda. Do we think they're kinder and gentler that that's not? So so this is dangerous stuff. We we need to stop saying, we're tired of it. And we need to talk about what we're gonna do with our allies to ensure that that environment doesn't once. Again, breed a second set of nine eleven you also pointed out something else that bothers you. And since you described it it bothers me we are dealing number one one on one with the Taliban, and where's Ghani's government? Where's the legitimate Afghanistan government? They don't want to deal with that. Because that will g demise at government. So you have a problem with the fact that we're dealing with them one on one Basser, Colorado who I know you like. Yeah. Look, the the thing the Taliban want more than just about anything is to de legitimize the Afghan government after years of saying we would not meet their request which was to talk to us directly without the Afghan government. Now, we are. And now, it appears we're gonna be talking to or the Taliban is going to be talking to Afghan opposition in brokered by our friends the Russians. The one thing. We don't want to do is what we seem to be doing de legitimizing the government. You only reason to do that. Again, if we if we decided we surrender. Maybe that makes sense. If you wanna keep Afghanistan under control, it makes no sense, whatsoever and ambassador, how long did it take for the Russian place the Soviet government of Afghanistan to collapse after the Soviets pulled out. Let's see interesting one of the interesting points, Brian they didn't collapse immediately. They they fought on. In spite of losses for the next couple of years. The army didn't come apart in till they stopped being paid about three years into it has a post Soviet. Europe. So the Afghans will fight they're tough guys. Either side of the line. Well, that's just why why I think we needed to stay at a minimum level where we are. Now, provide them some support some enablers, namely the sense that they're not on their own and continued manages ambassador. I hope he calls you..
