The inside story of the Iranian attack on Al Asad Airbase
"General Frank Mackenzie, commander of US forces in the Middle East, monitored the attack from his headquarters in Tampa, Florida. Walking into this small room off his main operation Center, where he could talk directly to the only two people above him in the chain of command. They bring in secretary defense and a little bit later they brought in the president to this conversation. We're listening to the reports of the missiles flying. You ever been on one like this? I've never been on one like this, where real missiles being fired at our forces and where I thought the risks were so high Iranian attack on al Assad was in retaliation for a stunning US operation. President Trump ordered six nights earlier, a drone strike, which killed Iran's most powerful general Qassim Suleimani. The blood of many Americans is on the hands of the same salamoni. He was this close to an indispensable man as you could find inside Iran, where he went violin. And death followed during the American occupation of Iraq. Sulamani had orchestrated attacks which killed more than 600. U. S troops and, according to Mackenzie, He was planning to do it again. We saw intelligence reports where the same cell Amani was moving various attacks, dreams forward against our forces in Iraq against our embassy and against other bases there. With the imminent perhaps an hour's, perhaps in days, probably not weeks. Until then, the USAID shied away from going after Sulamani for fear, killing such a high ranking government official. Would only provoke Mauritanian attacks. I never take killing anyone is a zone easy decision, but I think the risk of not acting in this case Outweigh the risks of acting So yes, I was good with the decision on January 3rd of last year on airport security camera recorded. Sulamani is arrival in Baghdad on a commercial flight from Damascus. Kensi was watching from a different angle. You have the drones overhead. Do you see him Healthy? Yes, yes. As soon Money's entourage pulled away from the plane. McKenzie gave the kill order to the commander controlling the drones. And then I said, Take your shot when you got it. Missile slammed into both vehicles simultaneously. There's no backslapping. There's no cheering because now I have to prepare to deal with the consequences. The action, General Mackenzie was sure Iran would retaliate, but he didn't know how and neither for awhile. Did the Iranians. I believe they went into a period of this organization because they had lost the officer. Who really spoke up and shaped everything up and told them what they were gonna do. So he's kind of ominous silence. It was a very ominous silence. And what was the first sign that Iran might really be thinking of her? Ballistic missile attack, they began to move their ballistic missiles. The attack was just hours away. When major Alan Johnson got the word. Iran's most powerful weapons were aiming for al Assad. My intelligence officer pulled me aside and Basically said, Sir, I've got some bad news for you. What's up? We have information that Iran is fueling 27 medium range ballistic missiles in their intention is the level this base And we may not survive. This was a completely different threat. Lieutenant Colonel Jim Garland commanded an army battalion at Al Asad. Sprawling air base about 120 miles west of Baghdad, where the U. S operated scores of helicopters, drones and other aircraft. Did the base have any defense against ballistic missiles now, sir? It was such a unprecedented threat. I don't think it was ever calculated. S o the capability to, uh, prevent a ballistic missile attack. It wasn't there. Did you have a plan for what to do? Way came up with the plan. The only real defense against ballistic missile attack is to get out of harm's way.

Nbc as well is that there was no reason for it. He doesn't really have a movie coming out today. He doesn't really have a standup special. That begins streaming. there's no book to talk about. It's just that we kinda live near each other. And he has taken up cross country skiing something. He has railed against in his standup act. In the past during this pandemic he's got his family up outside of new york city where they typically live for the last year or so to spread out and have some more space his wonderful wife jeannie and their five children living up in westchester county which is north of new york city and he decided to take up cross country skiing. I asked him why despite the fact he's claimed he doesn't like it and as you'll hear him explain it's because it gets him away from his family that no one else wants to go cross country skiing so he bought the skis. He's been doing it up in this park. And he said hey. Why don't you. And i go for a cross country ski and then we can. Just sit and talk so. That's exactly what we did. So what you'll hear it.

Trump's tax returns and related records turned over to New York district attorney
"I want to move on and talk a little bit about the tax issue and the tax returns. The court ruling could be handed over to the state of New York and and Cyrus Vance, the A G o. It was the prosecutor in this case. Looking into the President. Trump has taxes, his finances, etcetera, etcetera. You're working on that case. Look, I don't know anything about it. I've never seen his tax returns. But from knowing how businesses are run, I doubt there would ever be a billionaire, or frankly, any wealthy person whose taxes would look good. Unless there's a W two and unless somebody's an employee, and unless there are no no deductions available, I would imagine it would be more complicated than the average person's tax returns. Number one and number two. I would imagine that the president Then private citizen, Donald Trump probably hired the best accountants and lawyers available and they were the ones that filled out the taxes and not him. Well, I could tell you this I mean, 45th president. United States did not go down to meet with the local enough No disrespect, Agent or block. Actually, they do a lot of work, but he didn't go down to the local agent are blocking. Sit down and say here, my W two than he lets on my tax return. You're actually corrected. Tax returns are from a business and from his personal Work, which includes media real estate. Real estate tax returns are complicated by nature. He had expert CPS. He had expert tax counsel that prepared the returns. I'm not concerned about the returns we fought, we fought it. During while he was president. We did not think it was appropriate. To be able to seek those records. At least not unless they could show a special height. Need to justice is actually four justices would have agreed with us on height need. I suspected we had Amy Barrett. Now she probably would have to. I don't know that But it wouldn't matter because now the 45th president is the former president. But Come out strategy standpoint, I'm not gonna discuss trial strategy, and I don't think these are going to trial but from a litigation strategy or case strategy when you defend tax cases used the tax returns to defend your case. So this is not complicated. The tax returns may be complicated, but this is not a complicated defense. You know, the president does make a point. I mean, I'm not sure if you followed Merrick Garland's hearing yesterday, but he e mean seemed like he didn't know never picked up a newspaper to may and didn't knows much about anything and wasn't even willing to commit to keep in the dorm. Investigation. Ongoing. We now have a smoking gun email appear. James committed Jim Clapper and in that, he acknowledged, And this was the day that he signed the sex and second Fiza application. Is the first renewal application subsequently signed a third application three of the four and admitted that he was not able to verify The veracity and truthfulness of what we now know is the bunk, which is Hillary's bought and paid for dirty. Russian disinformation dossier, which raises the question of fraud before a FISA court in my mind that seems like a slam dunk. Am I wrong? No, I think I think you're right. I think Merrick Garland has a as a judge. It's a good reputation and former Justice Department official as well. I'm sure he's going to get confirmed. Hopefully, he will apply the law to the fax is that sky is that kind of reputation? He's not an Eric holder in my view at all and again, I think that this is Look, when you have an election go the way it went, however, it went there. The fact is they get to pick their nominees. And while there's already been some objections on others, I don't expect to be much objection. There will be a party line. Objection, but I don't think will be overwhelming. Yeah. You know all these legal issues that the president has dealt with the weed? You know, the president uses the term witch hunt in so many different ways. Look at what this country was dragged through. For three years. You were you were part of following this entire Russian witch hunt. You were involved in everything involving you. You lived for three years. You You lived the first impeachment trial. You know when a quid pro quo when it was only one fact witness Only one it was all based on not even a real whistle blower. But I hear, say, whistle blower, non whistle blower, and, you know everyone that testified was either an opinion witness. Or hearsay witness and nobody had any facts and the only real the only true witness said No, he didn't want to quit port pro or quo. Um at all. He said he wants nothing. He wants to make sure they're not gonna be corrupt and take that to the next level is thin. You got Joe bragging on tape that he leveraged a billion taxpayer dollars so they'd fire a prosecutor. That was investigating his son being paid millions with no experience. Yeah, well, look, I think the fact is that we beat back Bob Mueller. We beat back the first impeachment. We had good success and a lot of the Supreme Court cases. And the second impeachment, which we did not participate. And although we filed a brief with the Senate on the legality issue of whether you can teach the president no longer in office, which we took the position you cannot The president won these battles I He will win these other battles that he's as right now. But look they're trying to. I think it's pretty clear that the moves here are to try to disable him, so to speak. From being able to run again,

"Today's episode is about a boy named Jim Henson whose life was changed when his family got their first TV. He saw those shows the actors on them and the stories they told and decided that he wanted to be on television himself someday. Jim Henson was born in September nineteen, thirty, six in Mississippi. His family love jokes and laughing Jim spent a lot of time with his grandparents who helped him create amazing art projects. He also loved to go to the theater and watch movies and especially loved Westerns and movies that took place in far off places. He and his friends would spend their playtime dressing up and acting out the movies they saw using homemade props and they're big imaginations. Jim also grew up listening to radio broadcasts shows and his favourite performer was Edgar Bergen Ventriloquist of entr. ill-equipped is someone who can talk without moving his lips or mouth. Jim saw this and thought it was amazing. Later his family moved in Maryland and they purchased their first. TV when Jim was just thirteen years old jim watched a show called Kuka friend and. which featured puppet performers he loved the way. The puppets appeared to be real creatures that people could laugh with share stories with and be friends with. The puppets were alive in a way and that was magical. Jim Dreamed about being on television himself. As soon as Jim turned sixteen, he started looking for a job in television with all the local stations. Sadly, they all said No. This was hard for Jim. He didn't give up. He later heard that one of the stations was looking for a puppeteer. So checked out some books on puppetry built some puppets and applied for the job. He got the job building puppets for a Saturday morning. Children's program called the morning show with hard work practice and determination he was accomplishing his goal. Jim Henson.

The puppets in the show or early versions of what would later become the muppets including a prototype or version of kermit the. FROG. Jim worked on the show he invented new puppetry and filming methods that are still in use today such as allowing the puppeteer to work off camera by using the frame defined by the camera shot. At this time, most puppets were made from wood and we're not very expensive. Instead Jim used fabric covered foam rubber to give his puppets greater ability to express emotion. Instead of strings he is rods to manipulate the puppets also increase the range of expression of the puppets. While Jim was working on the salmon friends show he met and worked with Jane Neville another student at the university they would later begin dating eventually got married in Nineteen fifty-nine. The success of Salmon Friends led the Henson's puppets appearing on talk shows like the Steve Allen show the Jackpot program and the Ed Sullivan Show. These are similar to Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy. Kimmel, shows in our day. Henson's puppets also became famous when they were used in TV commercials such as the Wilkin Coffee Company commercial in Washington DC.

I've challenged my audience a lot. You know gone off on these tangents in my life and my creative career and stuff. And left of scratching their heads while I develop a new limb to bring back to the tree you know but but it's it's it's happened that way. No. I've been able to explore all these different areas like this. This is such new ground for me man this is writing a novel is just an extraordinary accomplishment for anybody. That for myself because I'm only half responsible for this. You know the book is is a is a ton of blood sweat and tears and in. A ton of fun. I feel like there are moments in the in the book because you're talking about Jim Carey and Jim? Carey's living. Jim. Carey's life in the book. Bears a lot of similarity to your own life, and then there insane departures. There are just a crazy departure from it, but there are truths in there like the pressure. Jim. Carey in the book is getting to stay relevant from powerful industry types and you need to make this movie and that stuff you keep wanting to go and make this incredibly artistic project where you play Chairman Mao and and people are people are saying. Of, course, the studios don't want that and they want you in the hungry hungry hippos movie. And you know I have to say managers as well. There are like, yeah we made the box, the box works. Inside the box when you're describing it first of all first of all I know that you and. Dana vashon created this. The flip side to the artistic project is the Hungry Hungry Hippos movie, which is already presold and guaranteed to make a billion dollars and everyone wants it and they want you and so you're getting all this pressure to do it and you don't WanNa do it. So you clearly have loathing for that project when he was reading the book I thought this sounds like a good movie I think I would go see it never makes me which makes me a moron. You spin off I was interested that VAT felt like that's true like I'm sure that you've had pressure before for sharing this constant constant. Decision make to be weighed against like artistically selling out is this cool to be doing. You know then you get your people, you WanNa take care of you. There's a whole consideration that goes on with every everything. I generally find myself a lot flying in the face of what's expected or an east delving into new territory that. That is risky. And and and that that to me is life that to me is what makes life worth living then it's like jok cousteau does soften the tide pools man he keeps exploring. Well, he doesn't anymore he's dead as a yeah he died he died because he he went he went to deep.

That was very much very New York in the sense of the tables right up next to each other and it was a good amount of noise in there but not enough in my mind that when I opened my my laptop. A movie was playing. Should it be a pornographic movie was playing a scene if you will. And the actors in this scene. Were towards the the third act if you will the climax of the scene and it was so loud. And a quickly shut it. But it I don't know why fates decided that a laptop does not stop sound when you shut.

I was turning beat red and so I tried to open it like a clam just enough to get my hand inside of it to turn. To turn the sound off or do whatever I could.

Its new act every while so it's but I think there is this you craft a persona craft a persona and you will it's point of view and the reality is people change their point of view. I'm not saying that you'RE GONNA go back to drinking. I'm saying that you're going to evolve you. In ten years might have different opinions and which goes back to from my point that this arrogance that humans think that we have it all figured out when our views evolve hopefully yeah chain yeah as himself. It's not necessarily for better or worse. It's just different but but do you feel like whereas a normal person never has to contemplate whether or not their audience is going to join them on this evolution. You would be irresponsible not to wonder Is this new direction I'm going in. I'M GONNA alienate. Here's the thing what makes your friendship or your relationship with your wife so dynamic. It's that you're challenging each other. There's there's still some mystery. There's some surprise there's and the her approval of me is not a foregone conclusion devalue that by the way it's probably harder to acquire yeah and so the thing about stand up the comedian with the audience. It's you have to challenge them like I have a friend todd glass who occasionally will open for me and he's like you're always purifying your audience like you'll elsa out. You'll have a joke in there. That will say hey. This is who I am. I think that we live in this age of this exhibitionist voyeuristic era where you have to reveal something which by the way is why podcasts are so popular is because people are revealing things in blur funny. Authenticity Tissot is so cherished so but my point with the stand up is that you have to challenge like the great friends who have they will challenge and you and they'll say d really believe that you know that's bullshit tax hit. You don't really believe that and you might go fuck you but then you're like you know what yeah maybe you're right so oh like having you know on my seven special or touring into city like Atlantic City for the thirteenth year in a row. Oh with new material is that that audience knows that I'm GonNa be funny. There's also an expectation that I'm going to surprise them. A little uh-huh. Maybe I'M NOT GONNA. I'm not GONNA do magic tricks but I'm going to talk with. You and I'm GonNa talk about something that makes them uncomfortable but maybe opens up a little bit yeah now. It sounds like I'm over promising just saying like you have to evolve. I think the best example of it is stern. It's like if you compare the show today to twenty five years. You can't even compare the two and I think so many people argue with about stern. They're arguing from when he was entre stroh radio the last time they heard them twenty years ago. We don't like that Guy Right. He threw Baloney girls asses and I'm like I can't defend that but it's it's been a long time through Baloney. It's the way it's an he's also somebody that has a teflon ability like if you lined up his crimes uh-huh oh sure sure sure I tell you what the whole thing is. We're just really I think drawn to hypocrisy so he's never purported to be some pillar of morality eighty. We're not tearing the rogue off of him. You know what I'm saying. It's like he's owned his his shadiness in a way that there's no story there well. I think there that might be true but I think that there's an additional teflon ability that if things don't stick to him they are things. Don't stick to him and it's a a very unique person. I'm not complimenting it or criticizing it. I'm just saying you're away with murder. Oh sure you're and other people they're like look at that Shirt Day war. I are Never GonNa forget absolutely okay so you have a bunch of stuff coming me now. You've been a very busy beaver. Yes you have a movie on August second called them that follow. I was right to guess that it's a little bit dark ark. It's darn it's it's about a religious call. It's a pentecostal snake healing church in Appalachia APPALACHIA. I'm going to mispronounce it high and I play the husband of Olivia. Colman career seems to be going all right and Walton. Walton is done at playing the minister and so it's a pretty soon amazing castle. There's so many amazing people in that comes out in L. A. On August second can't National August ninth and then August sixteenth is Amazon. You have a comedy special and it's their first comedy special versus comedy special. It's called quality time quality time okay now now. The big thing is American Dreamer on September twentieth. Yes it's the movie that I want directors and producers to see if they can go. Oh Wow he can act yes yes. That is what I want to happen. Who Do you play in that? I play a rideshare driver in Norfolk Virginia who is kind of down on his luck and who ends up driving around around a drug dealer. Some people are rideshare drivers. It's kind of like a side hustle or whatever and then there's some rideshare drivers that are crazy so so I'm more of the latter okay. I'm this Guy Cam so it is it's a it's a larger look at entitlement when in late entitlement and stuff like that and so there's a lot of heavy heavy stuff that happens in it. That's one of the topics I'm most fascinated by yeah. It's the white male entitlement. It's really interesting because playing this guy you know I I mean acting particularly where you're playing this character later that is so complex and you sit there and go. I want people on board for the first twenty minutes and then I want to plant the seed. It's in the script but you WANNA plan to see wait a minute. Maybe this should I be rooting for this guy and then the last act you're like. I can't believe I ever liked this guy. You know the driving force of this character actor is he can't believe he has to deal with this stuff right which is just that encompasses entitlement yeah well. If you grow grow up hearing your whole life you could be president in you. You know there's some kind of expectation yeah that when not met its skies can't even understand it incomprehensible yeah. I'm not supposed to be in by the way it's in you know it's weird also portraying someone like this. You have have to not have any doubts about his decision making process so it's so fun to shoot it and then you get done in someone's it's like I can't believe your character did that. In your mind you're going. That's only could do really start defending. Were so like I'm so crazy. I'm like what's wrong with that. Yes you end up. Defending this insane behavior will in order to play this as well worn. Everyone knows but yeah to play a serial the real killer successfully you can't be in judgment of the serious issue dimensional yeah. No serial killer thinks they're a bad guy. They think they're they're a great guy. Look when I read it. I was like this is a an amazing opportunity because no one's GonNa think that I'm going to go there right one it screened at the La Film Festival. What's it like see people kind of like just kind of like physically turning like why would you do that right you know what I mean and then also horrendous things happening and then he just Kinda goes on because by the way that's what happens in life? Life is what happens in life is horrible things happen and the world continues to Spin Will Jim. We're going to see all the things we're going to see them that follow. WE'RE GONNA watch quality time on Amazon and then we're going to go to movie theater need some popcorn on September twentieth and watch American Dreamer.

Unfortunately it's a major loss of time time suck but let's picking stocks in answering machine and and then I went to Goldman. Sachs meeting and Goldman hired me and it was not easy. I had to go ten times before I got the job so lawyer. Goma sacks. Tell me the lessons you learned are going to say oh you know what they did was. They shifted me from water. Sales and trading lessons were rigor. Okay the rigor. The rigor that you needed was incredible a just to get the job. One time they call me. Down is a twelve o'clock.

I did with a company. But how did you lose one hundred twenty five mil easily walk me through that well. What happens is that?
