Why Is There No Congressional Committee on Afghanistan?

"I wanted to Get into a number of big issues here with you. First of all. We still have American citizens. Behind enemy lines. In the country now controlled by terrorists and backed by China and Russia. Have you noticed our elites? Now I say elites, not because they're superior to us elites because They claim control and power and superiority over us. Have you noticed our elites? Don't give a damn Is there a reason why we have a commission or a committee on January six, but we don't have a committee about Americans right now behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. Is the reason why the Democrat Party leadership Says nothing. Or if they say anything, they don't seem all I worked up about it. Is it amazing to you that General Mattis and General Kelly who were very outspoken about Lafayette Park, which was nothing Have nothing to say about any of this. Isn't it amazing to you? It's amazing to me. The Sunday shows to the extent it was mention, hit and run. Hit and run. And, of course, as you know, in addition to American citizens behind enemy lines, There are Afghans behind enemy lines. Who helped us fight the enemy helps save American lives. And they've been left to these terrorist butchers,

Caller Who Previously Served Under General Milley Says He's Not the Same Leader Now

"Of all. The question was not asked is well, really. What was your recommendation to the president? As to whether we should hold on to Bagram or not? And then if your recommendation is to let go of it or to let it go? How do you justify that from the military standpoint, especially considering you know, I I don't even think where you can argue or using the retrospective scope now, But in fact I think that's a reasonable question to ask, Um Regardless. And then finally, let me just ask you that, you know, General Milley had no problem John in front of a microphone, attacking Trump after Trump. Walked through Lafayette Park, and that seems really kind of trite to be complaining about that when you consider what's going on here. Yes, sir. I completely agree. I didn't think there was anything wrong with what he did. Uh, um To be honest with you. I mean, that was a show of that was a show of unity and for like, a better term force. Let me ask you this before we run out of time. How did you find you? You We worked with him What you reported to him when he was a colonel. How did you find him to be as a colonel? Um, he bright bright, Well read and very, very demanding. Um and very, very, uh, You don't You don't have any question about what he thinks released back then you didn't. Now I think that has changed dramatically. He's not He's not the same. He's not the same leader. He was back

"That's just not true that he didn't do that and he was presented in terms. That would have led you to believe he was a stop. Oh chief somewhere you know when this when this happened remember. The context is after george. Floyd was killed at the hands of police day weekend so forth. That was the violence Before they were there violence as you said at the square. The church was set on fire. That's why they were trying to secure the place in put up that fencing and it was all put on attorney general bar comp- completely falsely. There's no evidence that he had anything to do with this And yet there's been no apologies for that. That was a big big thing at the time. A group of parents from the catholic school that his daughters attended wrote an open letter. You know castigating Mr bar for this stuff and they just didn't have a leg to stand on so it is kind of a coincidence like you're talking about the fog it is. You can see how people might be led to assume this that The attorney general lead this because donald trump appeared at the same time. The park police were clearing the area For the contractor but people jump to a of conclusions they use that To to smear the attorney general and the president for that matter. We didn't do this. You know the idea. This was all done by the trump administration. So that that the president could get his little photo op and there's no evidence for it at all and someone may be should say they're sorry and then one final point here. The result of that it seems was that people in dc national guard in the pentagon and took the lesson Not to the that they had to treat. Protesters will kid gloves and the it was interesting. There's another report out from two senate committees this week on the january six capital riot and jason part of the message. There was that they were worried about optics. They were worried about having National guard barricade around the capital and the the result was a slower response than they than they might have otherwise had Had it not been for these events in the summer of twenty twenty. Yeah i think look you. You saw an attitude toward political violence completely changed. I mean When the these people sympathized with these protesters at lafayette park because of their cause but the fact is many of them. Violent and in front of the white house assaulting police on a large scale lighting things on fire lighting government property on fire..

"This report shows how exaggerated that was because there was real violence at lafayette park. There was The saint john's church which is adjacent to the park With saddam fire There was a treasury of part of the treasury treasury building that was set on fire. There were forty nine officers injured in the two nights before this They had bricks and bottles thrown at them and so on. One one was hospitalized. So there was real violence and arson happening. There were people reports of more Of people with you know s or perhaps more weapons around the park which is right in front of the white house so the the park police which controls. Dc's clark said we wanna put up a fence around this park and the contractor who was going to install the fence the the offense that people scale can climb over. They said well. You have to secure our our people our workers. You have to put them in a safe position if they're going. Install this fence so the The park police had this plan to do this. Based on the previous two days of violence inspector general says they were entitled to do that. They had the authority and discretion to do that to protect federal property and to protect their officers and they did and they didn't know That president trump was planning a visit when they started to plan to clear the park. So you know it turns out that. This narrative was just so exaggerated for for partisan effect. It's really remarkable when you read the report just basically says this was a legitimate operation and by the way you know after january sixth. We've all we all recognize the importance of suppressing political violence. Suppressing attacks on buildings. And that's exactly what was happening here and So so it's really a remarkable embarrassment for the media. One caveat i. I'm seeing this debate. Is that this. This investigators report only covers the actions of things under the purview of the interior department. So the us park police There is a mentioned in there about how at approximately six sixteen pm contrary the operational plan and before the us park police gave final dispersal warning. the secret service came out. And so there's some. I mean there's definitely still some fog of war here but to jason's point it does seem clear that the simple story In the media around this event was at least not entirely accurate or not the whole story and one thing that i think is important to point out is there were a lot of headlines talking. About how attorney. General bill barr had personally come out and ordered the protesters removed and read a piece of the interior department report here. It says the us park police operations commander as the attorney. General asked him are these. Are these people still going to be here when police meaning the president i'd states comes out the us park police operations. Commander told us he had not known until then that the president will be coming out of the white house And then it continues and says the park police operations commander denied that the attorney general order ordered him to clear lafayette park So bill i mean it is. I like i say i i it. It seems to me that there's still a lot of fog. Were here But a lot of the headlines. In retrospect from immediately after the event. Don't don't look quite accurate right. I i go further the jason. It was not just exaggerated. It was false if you go back to the headlines. The stories in the washington. Post the time line. The idea was that attorney. General bill barr personally ordered. The police come out. Remove these demonstrators in gas them and now we find out..

"It was a year ago on June 1st that we all saw the U. S. Park Police clear Black lives matter. Demonstrators out of Lafayette Park across from the White House followed a short time later by video of President Trump walking to the park for that famous photo op, holding a Bible in front of a church. Well. The official report on that incident was released yesterday and it concludes the decision to clear the demonstrators had nothing to do with the photo op. It was done so that the security fence could be installed. Timeline shows The plan to install defense was underway several hours before the park. Police knew the president was headed there and the park Police knew nothing about the Bible photo, so a big chunk of the media Thought that it was all Trump's fault. Got it wrong. Trump is vindicated. And on Fox Sean Hannity was triumphant as he slammed the now debunked headlines. Remember these fake news headlines last summer NPR Peaceful protesters tear gas to clear the way for Trump Church photo op. NEW YORK TOILET Paper Times quote How Trump's idea for a photo op led to havoc in a park and his guests tacos Mark Levin agreed completely that The New York Times just Lied outright. They covered up the Holocaust. Of course, they're going to lie about what took place in Lafayette Park, and he quoted with candidate Joe Biden said at the time when Americans peacefully protest outside the White House, this president tear guest and for a photo op. Liar. So there you have to conservatives. It doesn't get more conservative than Hannity and live in saying the mainstream media. Got it wrong and Biden got it wrong and who got it right? The impartial inspector general for the Department of the Interior. It occurs to me. This is the exact type of independent investigation that the House approved for the January 6th attack. This tells me there's a chance that it too might completely vindicate Trump. Imagine how much trouble the mainstream media would be. And then So here's my idea for getting Republicans to support that the inspector general who led the Lafayette Park investigation the investigation that left Hannity and live in deliriously joyful is a career official by the name of Mark Lee Green Black. He was appointed by Trump two years ago and confirmed it a voice vote utterly UN controversial. Put him in charge of the January 6th investigation. How could handle he be against that? How could trump be against that? He appointed the guy. So that's my idea. And if that doesn't get Republican support Then they must have something to hide. 7 38.

"After four nights virtually the Republican National Convention is now Actual History Donald Trump. As you heard formally accepted his party's nomination before a crowd of about fifteen hundred people on the White House lawn they were there and in place for hours a scene unlike anything witnessed in modern. US. History the gathering evoked the pre cova trump rallies few people masked no attempt at social distancing and during the event, the death toll in our country grew as all of it was going on hundreds of protesters gathered in Lafayette Park across the street from the white. House. The White House compound now heavily fortified. Final night comes as our nation grapples with crises on multiple fronts, and the messaging was often at odds with reality of spreading pandemic. Unrest and economic devastation while trump offered up the past three plus years and making his case for four more. The night was also devoted to unrelenting and largely unfounded attacks on Joe Biden warnings about a country at risk descending into violent chaos. If the former vice president should win in November, you won't be safe is the quote about Joe Biden's.

Coronavirus task force holds first briefing in months as cases hit record high

"The United States about to hit forty thousand new corona virus cases today. The first time that we've had that many one day, the death toll in the United States closing in on one hundred twenty five thousand people, but if all you did was listened to the president and vice president today, you would be absolutely stunned here what I just said because this is what they said. Today? All fifty states and territories across this country are are opening up safely and responsibly. Well, that's incorrect. It's factually incorrect. They're not I mean eleven. States are currently on pause. Some of them are actually backtracking and closing some things down on plans to reopen Texas and Florida specifically. They are rolling back reopening plans governors of the other nine states. They are not moving forward with the next phase of reopening. So that was incorrect, and then the vice president went on to make this claim. The truth is we did slow the spread. We flattened the curve. So he says we flattened curve, so let me just show you America's curve. So you see, the surge right and then in in March and then you see the plateau. And then you see. The jump there at the end where we are now getting to fifty forty thousand cases today. That was a plateau, and it's on its way back up and I want you to compare the graph to these other graphs. These are countries around the world right? They have that surge at the beginning the UK Germany France Italy Japan South Korea European countries measured in thousands of cases Asian in hundreds, but look what happens at the bottom. They go all the way back down and stay that way. Ours never went down right, and now it's going back up currently with the same steepness of slope as it did at the beginning. And yet the vice president was taking a victory lap during today's briefing and he made sure to credit person number one. Under the leadership of President, trump is the president's made clear credit I believe to our president of the president made that decision. So, where was the president during this briefing while he was somewhere in the vicinity, but he was on twitter, talking about confederate statues, tweeting this image of people suspected of trying to vandalize statue of Andrew Jackson and what he was writing was that many people in custody with many others being sought for vandalisation of federal property in Lafayette Park Ten year prison sentences. It was hours later that the president did finally say something about the pandemic. That's amazing raging right now in the United States like nowhere else here he s. We have work to do that. We'll get it done. while. That's an understatement it. We are learning tonight that people traveling from the United States most likely will not be allowed to even enter the European Union. Banned, because the United States has gotten the virus under control Kaitlan Collins is out front. She's live outside. The White House Tonight Caitlyn. No briefings for eight weeks the White House. Felt like they had to do something here, but then they came out and said everything's opening you safely and responsibly opening fifty states. When that's just you know factually untrue. Yeah. It wasn't the message that some people were expecting the vice president to project from that briefing today after Wednesday's coronavirus task force briefing, and after you're seeing these numbers from this week including yesterday setting a record high of cases per day since the month of April, of course, which is the last time that they had these coronavirus briefings now you would that they would have. have taken more questions. The vice president instead of Aaron only took a handful of them, but before he started taking questions, you saw him arguing saying that he doesn't want the American people to think that because of these new surging infections that the United States where it was two months ago, even though the case numbers per day or mirroring that or beating it and. And of course, the vice president went on to talk about what precautions Americans should be taking. He ticked off a list of things that the CDC has recommended. But Aaron he notably left out wearing a mask when a reporter asked about the fact, that mask have become this political issue. He then only told people that they should be following local or state guidance ignoring the. The fact that the CDC a Federal Agency of course, has recommended that people wear masks when they are out in public, and within the vicinity of other people. He also defended those rallies that he and the president have been holding and encouraging their supporters to come to where thousands of people are put indoors with very little social distancing errand by saying that it was people's. People's right to the first amendment characterizing it more as a personal decision than something that they're organizing and urging people to come in to attend, but I do want to note to striking things that came out of that briefing today was the vice president offering a pretty rosy assessment of these numbers, and then Dr Falcon getting up there and having a very sobering warning. What's to? To come and personal responsibility and this, but also Aaron the vice president saying he believed it's an arguable that the reason that there are more cases in the united. States because there's more testing Dr. burks got up and she was going through these slides and one of the ones she pointed to was Texas where it showed in May as they were increasing testing their positive. Positive test rates were going down in the last two and a half weeks they continue to increase testing, but now those positive test rates Aaron are going up, and that completely refutes with the president and the vice president have been telling people and governors for the last several weeks. All right, thank you very much. CAITLIN absolutely makes the crucial point. Right the percent test rate. Rate is what they're looking at twenty percent of them. Positive that that's that's the relevant point. It's not the absolute number and Caitlyn I. Appreciate Your Time, so let me go now to Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Dr Jonathan Reiner. Who Advise the White House medical team under president? George W Bush currently in Cardiac Cath lab at Gw so so sanjay the vice president today. Came out and presented an alternate reality. he said all fifty states and territories. This country are opening up safely and responsibly. That is quote obviously the have double digit states halting stepping back. They're reopening all together big steps back. Yeah I mean. I. Don't even know where to begin with this particular briefing. You know you think two months. We haven't had a briefing. There's obviously some real trouble spots in the country and I'm. Saying that almost euphemistically I thought there was going to be an acknowledgement that look. We have some problems. Significant ones in here is our plan to address them. Here's what we're GonNa do we're convening the coronavirus task force to to address this? We didn't see that at all. I mean there's the last task force briefing. You can see what the numbers were at that point and obviously just see how the numbers have grown even over the last few weeks. Weeks, so it it it was it was a real concern, and there were a lot of things that were said that were just basically a whitewash of what's actually happening in the country, and that's what I think. Worries me. How are you GonNa fix the problem. If you don't even acknowledge it right well, that's the thing. If you're in complete denial about it, then you obviously don't have a plan to fix it because you don't believe it's their. Running when the president actually gave a nod to this this afternoon, his comment was making a lot of progress with the whole situation, but we have a lot of work to do but he did not attend the briefing instead he was treating about those confederate Mon. Monuments So, you know in the vice president. There was talking about all the encouraging news again. His words talking about Krona virus so. What do you make of this and I guess specifically the president's refusal to be there. Yeah the president. In a tweet about the monument seems to be more interested in protecting long dead confederate traitors. He is in protecting Americans right now. Yeah, I was really appalled. When the vice president today said well, we've all heard the encouraging news you encouraging news, really

"The hooligans and hoodlums and punks and thugs and antifa **** were tearing down a Andrew Jackson statue in Lafayette park last night the president has responded with an order to arrest we shouldn't need presidential orders to arrest anyone who's vandalizing public or private property but we'll get to all of that in a moment I wanted to start the show talking about where we are with corona virus because I think that's going to take over the public discussion again now this is a really interesting look in to our lives in America today because I think we're going to now focus for a few days on coronavirus what's interesting about this is that doesn't mean that there won't be people with bull horns out in the street screaming it doesn't mean we won't have riots doesn't mean they won't be tearing down monuments doesn't mean they won't be demanding that the police be de funded all that will still be going on it means that the media's coverage is now going to move back to coronavirus and when the media's coverage changes about ninety five percent of the public's response the issue that matters to most Americans is determined by news directors especially when they do it in concert so people that hadn't thought about monuments whether they be to teddy Roosevelt Ulysses S. grant or Robert E. Lee or Thomas Jefferson or George Washington people hadn't thought about those monuments in decades were all of a sudden thinking about them people haven't thought about those individuals we're suddenly defending the legacy of those individuals it's quite interesting actually and now that'll be gonna wear then we were on to the next thing and the next thing the next thing and it should make you wonder why do we let the left decide what's the most important thing for us to talk about armed but it seems imagine that your company if you had a monthly meeting when you came in you talked about how your doing improvements you need to make but instead of your monthly meeting were you focused on what makes the company profitable if instead you had a guy who worked in the mail room and he was really mad at the shoes he was wearing how they keep tearing apart and he stood up at the beginning of the meeting and said thank god I don't like under armour shoes I want that you choose and everybody said but under armour is good and he's like he's bad news but the whole meeting on that and then you left would would what shoes he wears have anything to do with the effectiveness of this company not one bit but he would have dominated the floor he would have chosen the agenda about which you all talk about now the problem with that is when you're talking about X. you're not talking about Y. Z. a B. C. D. E. F. the ability to control what topic we're going to discuss is the ability to control the narrative in we have ceded that it's very unhealthy we're about to begin the calls for the second lockdown so between me too black lives matter NT four Confederate statues I'm sure mail in voting the left is going to find fifty don't you crane Russia they're going to find fifty different ways to try to take down Donald Trump the next one is they didn't quite topple the economy they tore down some monuments they didn't quite topple the economy now they've they've cost a lot of people their jobs but the unemployment checks are flowing so they don't realize so this morning I was reading the comments of a doctor named Dr David Samadi and there's a certain confirmation bias he was riding the kinds of things that I actually believe it I haven't seen a lot of other people say especially not doctors and so I reached out to ME practices in in Manhattan and I decided I wanted you to hear his perspective on a second lock down in this whole covert thing our guest is Dr David Samadi formerly of the fox news medical A. team he is a newsmax contributor you can find out more at prostate cancer non one one dot com he posted a tweet that caught my attention that I thought was very interesting he wrote if you we will if we want to true analysis on the effective code nineteen we need to accurately count people who died from cove it not simply people who died with covert for example George Floyd died in Wisco ID but he clearly did not die of the code we need to examine how we count deaths you know there's been several people who made this point lately that we need to go back and recount the deaths and that we need to be more accurate in that but what is your belief as a doctor as to why that's important look I think it at every level from the beginning of this journey you have to look and see like where we were about five months ago five six months ago life was beautiful the economy was doing just incredibly well everybody was like flying high and there was never any issues the economy was great people were working and it doesn't matter whether you were part of the Latino African American a white everybody was prospering from this all of a sudden we have this pandemic that comes to us an older designs on older models it doesn't matter what university you got these models from there were a hundred percent wrong it wasn't even close to the numbers that we were we are seeing today they were talking about over two million deaths then he became over a million death then you remember that weekend that they came they said this is going to be our Pearl Harbor yeah we're gonna have nine eleven this week we're going to see two hundred forty thousand deaths body back that bags out there and so it's a nightmare now obviously every life matters you know we don't want to lose as a physician I fight for my patients to save one life so even a hundred and twenty thousand is is a lot but the question is who are these patients Howard the taken care of how does the death certificate is being taken care of unfortunately I'm not bidding conspiracy and I'm not but bringing any accusation against anybody I'm just trying to like open a conversation that the incentive sometimes in the hospitals and the payments from the government is that if you dig put on ventilator or somehow they cannot save them and put them on a ventilator the reversal will be more and soon fortunately you know there were a lot of questions that came up is whether they're doing full course code or not etcetera so when the death certificate is done if somebody is having a massive heart attack and they die from a heart attack and they happen to have corporate nineteen there are possibilities that someone would call them as a Colby death which is really not the case so it would be good to have transparency and we're I'm not accusing anyone or any hospitals but I'm just saying that it would be great to have a third party to look at this and say like what's called the real ideology and cause of death in patient access or patient X. died from a massive brain bleeding or hemorrhage and happened to be positive because of it that makes sense to you thanks absolute sense not I think it's important more people are honest about that we've had folks who keep records of medical system say look the hospital has an incentive to do this all right Dr Samadi I'm gonna stop you right there more with Dr David Samadi coming up.

C. outside of the White House you heard on the news enjoyable as home home his main concern with all this craziness going on this mission gosh is he wants the demonstrators before they start because you know they have start times different places around the city to get a corona virus test and have the temperature take they should look I mean we're still in the middle of a crisis caused by president trump's failure to stop this thing from coming the United States so we have to be very careful but if you put that aside one check how do you do this you know it looks like a gun they're pointing at your head when you're taking the temperature you think he's demonstrated some of them have the mounted unit do it will be just you know they can fly by having you want to get those mountains out there so this would be a good yourself all right so now because the one you think they still wear the mounted unit every week with the phone would you I'm telling you it's very old idea wait I think it's the that once there is some sorry boys so I'm on the air whites are younger I'm sorry because he can't deal with your right arm no no not that boy was one of our voices you can't make it out till now good did not like him stop stop stop stop okay there we go let's go to Lafayette park yes the president had his press conference to the nation in the west wing who's right before rose garden actually right right before the start of curfew she could hear the demonstrators outside they had the chance lockdown and curfew was said if I remember correctly eight o'clock right I think we seven o'clock in DC or at day and then all of a sudden the crowd was one you got to clear out the president wanted to walk across the street right through the park to the chapel that had been destroyed in one of the protest and they cleared a path for him and I know these people like yourself with totally bent out of shape down completely bent out of shape by it I think it's the worst thing he's done in his presidency I mean he used force against bate these were not writers do not looters diesel people chanting a park exercising their first amendment right and the president to get a photo op a ridiculous photo op or held a Bible upside down you should open the Bible read it read the book of Matthew always helping those usually what whatever gas people to walk around the Bible not once no no he just said not once he just sent bombs into the Sudan in order to have yeah Jim again there is nothing Bill Clinton did or any president at least in my lifetime has done including Nixon that is as bad as this I mean Nixon sent the troops into Ohio at Kent state and that was before my time but it but this is a killer people they kill people getting their hands they did and that's a horrible thing to have done demonstrated he killed these people should not have been gas the police office should not have been beating up cops about a warning police officers they were on marked whatever thugs from the bureau of prisons yeah those are the guys going on I'm sorry I'm sorry in the United States of America if you're exercising police power you need to have a badge in an idea of where you're working even you wear your jacket and your beret so people know you're the guardian angels and if there's a problem they come after the guardian angels these people were on mark we do not have a secret police in the United States of America with the president did on Monday was by far the worst thing he's done you don't realize it will be he look people across this country are outraged by it it is not just liberals there are many conservatives who are outraged by this use of force this is the kind of thing that all the second and the people were freed up a president using force to stifle free speech where are they now they're on the side of the president because he never really cared about free speech they never really cared about the constitution they wanted that Fallis in their hands to over compensate for all the little things and doesn't mean time you have the looters and the people who are vandalizing property mixed in amongst those them not a hold on it in Lafayette there was a peaceful demonstration I don't think that that was the night before we're talking about different that mold different Devon that moment when the president of the United States decided to use force for his photo op it was a peaceful demonstration in front of the White House there have been demonstrations in Lafayette park for as long as I've been alive probably as long as you've been allowed to remember that's a laughing instruction by veterans it was Herbert Hoover who sent in general McCall and I was horrible general Eisenhower general Patton Herbert Hoover didn't get reelected and you know well shown this president's not gonna get reelected military men across this country general Mattis general Powell general Kelly have denounced this use of force and then the president threatened threatening to use the insurrection act in our city so he's gonna roll tanks in New York City she's talking about the American battlespace use me are you kidding me you forget the Rodney king riots bush forty one and the governor sent federal troops an act the request of the governor of California through the National Guard which is what we do in this country as if the

S. hypocrisy criticizing for example the Chinese in response to protests in Hong Kong with police brutality here in the United States and so obviously those are very different those are very different issues in the killing of Mr Floyd and what's happening in Hong Kong those are different issues but what we see what we're seeing is that these governments are making rhetorical points against the United States and that's having an impact in the near term I think long term John the real issue is is that you know in the United States throughout our history we have had as a people a remarkable ability to self correct and when I look when I look at those protests happening in our own country east coast west coast and everywhere in between most of those protests are peaceful and what that reminds I think should remind us is that you know there's the promise implicit in those protests for change I think at the end of the day what we do is a people over time will will will that's what matters most even globally and diplomatically around the world so the story remains to be written and that's I think that the that the most important point today global affairs expert Mario mand queue so you can follow Merial on Twitter admin queue so online police are investigating a shooting that left an eighteen year old dead in northeast DC officers responded just before five PM Saturday to Brentwood road and found marquise Harriet of southeast DC suffering from multiple gunshot wounds a reward of up to twenty five thousand dollars is being offered for information now eight fifteen sports at fifteen and forty five powered by Red River technology decisions aren't black and white pink red here's Christiane in the main event of UFC two fifty eight dominating performance by Amanda Nunez over her opponent Felicia Spencer the line as became the first of the four fighters in UFC history who have held two titles simultaneously to defend both titles during reign as champion the thirty two year old from Brazil is both the bantamweight and featherweight champion and there were times near the end of the fight were it looked like Spencer's corner should have thrown in the towel especially when human Toma appeared on Felicia said Joe Rogan a newness talked about that post fight we use a prize at any point in time to the referee didn't stop the fight I'm not surprised I know she's voted off I see I say my all interviews we can I know I. she giggled I studied her very well I know she stopped it have to be shopping he said if I have to go five.

"Shot of the White House. Here is a secret service agent who is getting his picture taken by tourists. Can we take picture with you? Needless to say, there's a police presence. Because of where the park is Michael Isikoff walked through Lafayette Park. All the time back in one thousand nine hundred nine he worked a few blocks away at the Washington Post. He was a reporter there, and he covered the president's speech about the baggy of crack. I was watching it on TV and reporting on it because I was drug reporter for Mike knowing what he knew about Lafayette Park, the constant police presence the tourists. He kept coming back to this question. How did that crack come to be there? That's not a natural place where you would expect to see drug deal. Mike started digging one of the first calls he made was to the US park. Police who patrolled Lafayette Park. He asked him. Have you had a lot of crack dealing in Lafayette Park. And the answer. I got was no. We don't consider that a problem area. There's too much activity going on there for drug dealers. There's always a uniform police presence there. In fact, the commander of criminal investigations told Mike there hadn't been any crack arrests in Lafayette Park, ever until this one. That led to the crack that was in the president's speech, and that and that got my attention. So Mike starts calling his sources DA he talks to William McMullen, the assistant special agent in charge of the Washington DC field office who told me this remarkable story. And the story McMullan told him was this a few days before the president's speech McMullan had gotten a call from the executive assistant to the head of the DA who told him that the White House speechwriters had ridden this line in to the president's speech and came up with the idea of using a bag of crack as a prop and could DA oblige by doing a drug bust around the White House and McMullen says older isn't really a lot of crack dealing around the White House McMullan explained there were plenty of other parts of DC.
