"Government mumble. A could i ask you to respond to what rafia has said The way in which women were used as a pretext for the us invasion and the fact that the advances that have been made in afghanistan four women have largely been a as a result of the aid economy. Could you could you Respond to that. I mean it's knocking is being a little bit unfair. I believe the situation. I know that there was That that happened in afghanistan. There's no doubt a balanced but at the same time it is not that you know only that this result of it is not that they women are prep ghanistan. Christopher from the point of view of education loan. I mean so many more girls right now that the they've gone to school graduated from schools and they are and they're ready to take their and and keep on going. There's so many in all the same wave teachers and doctors and nurses and engineers and and these are all because the universities will open because women would announce to go to a part of their higher education not necessarily took the united states of europe but to other countries in asia obser- to win and go and do their complete that education. So that whole thing really really changed was changing and if we were given we would be given a number more of a chance. I'm sure this would have taken a route in afghanistan and become that that the majority that that we need in order to really bring about a change and the whole life of the african woman i know did not happen that because it was cut short and then also but at the same time you know based kind of taking a part of what she's saying in her her beliefs To me also in a way. It is going to show me as as an afghan. And i hope to all of my sisters that they are here then afghanistan or the ones that they are outside for us to see how what you're going to do from here on because you see afghanistan is afghanistan. The are the educated women and that so far that they wanted to have been not all of them left afghanistan. not all of them can leave aghanistan so again it's going to be that that that Second in a category of people that they are educated than hopefully education is something that you'll fight for will continue. I think he had to interesting to see what they're going to be happening. Without the push of the of the of the west end the woman and many of the jews and all of that. I wanted to go to just this past july. When the former republican president george w bush of course responsible for the us invasion of ghanistan responded with a rare criticism of us policy in afghanistan today during an interview with the german news outlet h avella. This is what he said. I'm afraid afghan. Women and girls are going to suffer unspeakable harm. I'm sad and i spend a blur. And i spent a lot of time with afghan women and and they're scared so here. He refers to first lady. Laura bush and november of two thousand one right. After the invasion laura bush delivered the president's weekly radio address a first time first lady took over the president's weekly radio address. This is an excerpt. I'm laura bush and i'm delivering this week's radio address to kick off a worldwide effort to focus on the brutality against women and children by the al qaeda terrorist network and the regime. It's supports in afghanistan. The taliban and it wasn't just the first lady. Of course a republican in october of two thousand one democratic congresswoman carolyn maloney of new york were burqa during a two thousand one speech to congress on afghan women's rights. Anyone who was familiar prior to september eleventh with how the taliban treat women should have recognized that the taliban are capable of doing just about anything. The taliban controlled ninety percent of afghanistan since nineteen ninety six when they unilaterally declared an end to women's basic human rights the restrictions on women's freedoms in afghanistan are unfathomable to most americans. Women are banished from working. Girls are not allowed to attend school so That was carolyn. Maloney on the floor of the house wearing a full burqa. Her face covered as well. Reveres the courier you document this but if you can Talk about the significance of how the swiss used immediately as much or more than going after osama bin laden and the justification of the us invasion. And then what's happening as mahbouba sarraj says looking at today. What has to happen well. First of all. I'd like to you know correspond to something. Mehbooba said about This kind of thing. The education quote unquote will take root and ghana stan. I think that is the problem of the approaches. That it's a top down trickle down approach which was devised in by middle class western feminists and then kind of delivered to have gone stan as an export rather than an indigenous. Some of them in afghanistan. i think the the failure is that yes. I've gone to him and might be educated. But they don't have the political capacity to safeguard the rights that they have one in the past twenty days and that's the reason for that is this idea of empowerment as something. Excise from political radicals struggle. Will you know women and a on. Were never able to do that. In the past twenty years and we of twenty seconds okay so but in terms of the worker being those are the theatrics of the west right. It's it's this horrible equation that if you're wearing the burqa your oppressed if you suddenly take it off your free and you see.

Former President Barack Obama criticizes President Trump

Former President Barack Obama criticizes President Trump

"Presidency and the vice-presidency is bigger than any of us. So i have instructed my team to work as hard as we can to make sure that this is a sex successful transition for the president elect president obama four years ago showing professionalism and class to an incoming president who offered very little of that in return so perhaps it's a fitting final contrast for everyone to see. Donald trump is incapable of meeting that standard. You could call it. The obama enter. You could also just call it the typical presidential transition standard if you want but it is one more reinforcement of these times. We're living in tumult revolt. Fear an america veering between presidents. That are so obviously different. Obama to trump to buy the former president waited deliberately until after the results to offer some more personal candor about all of this. Obama has intentionally held his long awaited presidential biography until after this race a choice that would of course keep the spotlight on the democratic nominee and the current president obama made that choice of course before he knew the nominee would ultimately reflect his own choice back in two thousand eight for who should be president if not him. Joe biden and as part of this new book tour. We are now hearing from obama for the first time about some extra donald trump as a severe aberration when donald trump won. I stayed up until two thirty in the morning. And i then called donald trump to congratulate him his margin of victory over. Hillary clinton wasn't greater than half. Joe by martin over him i think about john mccain calling george and laura bush welcoming you and michelle obama to the white house interest not have been more gracious. Everyone knows obama doesn't really take a lot of cheap shots if anything his own. Supporters have been frustrated sometimes now measure he can be he will look for any reasonable interpretation of opponents actions. He'll try to think through their views. He'll discuss that in public. I think those traits actually made him an excellent writer and lawyer by the way so it is notable that today and these new remarks obama does not even see any reasonable way to cut donald trump emotional or theoretical slack. Barack obama is not joining this odd snowflake chorus of enablers who say donald trump needs days and days of processing time that no other politician ever gets or the conservatives who suddenly think one man's delicate snowflake ary and narcissistic foolery should hold up the national security transition of this country. No no sir. Today in these two interviews barack obama hits the stakes and the costs of donald. Trump's failed to concede and active choice to fan misinformation. Which could hamper civic life for a long time to come. They appear to be motivated in part because the president doesn't like to lose and Never admits loss. If you're listening to some of the talk radio that trombone are listening to if you're watching fox news if you're getting these tweets. Those allegations are presented as facts. So you've got millions of people out there who think of there must be cheating because the president said so. Where do we go from here for. President obama is telling everyone it's bigger than trump addressed his top republicans abdicating their responsibility. They obviously didn't think there was any fraud going on because they didn't say anything about it for the first two days. But there's damage to this because what happens. Is that the peaceful transfer of power. The notion that any of us who attain unelected office whether it's dogcatcher or president are servants of the people. It's a temporary job. we're not above the rules. We're not above the law. That's the essence of our democracy. that's deep. The jobs are temporary. we are all temporary. What we're trying to build to on our best days democracy injustice. That's permanent.

Curtis Sittenfeld's New Novel Brings Her From Prep to Politics

"I guess. Today is the author of the Sunday Times Bestseller American wife in which she painted a picture of an ordinary American girl a thinly disguised Laura Bush who found herself married to a president. It was long listed for the Orange Prize. As was her debut novel. Prep her other books. Include the man of my dreams sustained eligible and the acclaimed short story collection. You think it I'll say it. Her stories of appeared in the New Yorker Esquire Oprah magazine and The New York Times magazine her latest collection of stories to be published in the UK is help yourself. She's also the guest editor for the Twenty Twenty Best American short stories anthology. She lives with her family in the American Midwest. A brand new novel is rotten. And it's been described as bombshell while I couldn't agree more. This is a book that will demand. Attention Curtis Sitton fell. Welcome to meet the rices. Thank you for having me. You'll novel begins in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine. Is Hillary Rodham Graduates College? And it brings us right up-to-date in Contemporary America. But I'd like to go back to Cincinnati in one thousand nine hundred seventy five when when you were can you tell us about the second stance surrounding you alive? Oh my goodness it's funny. I'm so much in the habit of of talking about Hillary's lay right now. You'll warm familiar with that than with my own will. I'm the second of four children. I have a sister. Who's less than two years older than I am. And I would say a have not led a very personally dramatic life which might be why I'm a fiction writer instead of a memoir rest but yeah I grew up in Cincinnati. My parents are both retired but still live in Cincinnati and I have two sisters one brother my brother is actually holds elected office in Cincinnati. He's the he's a member of the city council in his third term. So so I guess. Different members of my family are interested in in politics in in different ways but I was very lucky to go to excellent schools in Cincinnati elsewhere. And I would say my family Sort of obsessive readers like we didn't it's not like we. All six sat around each of US feverishly reading a book of our own but there were lots of books in the House. We did sometimes read is a family. My mother was a librarian for a long time for you know middle school or junior high students so ages twelve and thirteen and fourteen and that strong feminist streak. That comes to your writing that being influenced by her. That's an interesting question. My parents have almost opposite personalities. From each other where. My father is very great Gary in very opinionated and my mother is you know I think she has strong opinions and viewpoints. But she's. She's not a very assertive per cent. And she's not she's not she's a very private person even even by saying this should not be. I think she'd rather that like I never talk about her. Other than you know maybe acknowledging that she exists described as relatively progressive. But you know I think there are some families where the children grow up going to protest rallies in that was not my family You'll schooling was obviously a hugely influential. In fact your first book prep which is I. Think long list for the Orange Prize loosely based on that. Would you say so? I went to a boarding school in Massachusetts. When I was I had just turned fourteen and it was sort of strange given you know the area of the country where I grew up. Which is the mid west and it was a little bit unusual to go to a sort of fancier elite boarding school on the east coast just in the sense that a lot of students who go to that school are more from that region and also the other thing is that. I was the only one of my siblings who went which I think sometimes makes people think that I must have been the most academically talented in fact. I was the least academically and by my siblings. Were all you know much more. Well rounded students like. I did well in English but I definitely struggled with other subjects so those a little bit. I feel like I certainly. It was privileged but it was also a little bit random or arbitrary that I went to boarding school and talking about coming from a different at least geographical background from the rest of the students. The story is sort of more than coming of age. It's it's more perhaps one could say it was about a study of of social class. Was that something that you found was very apparent there that it did feel different. This whole kind of I mean I think the thing that we all have this horror of being a teenager comes across in dairy well a particular field and that you didn't fit in that. I think I felt at times that I didn't fit in. Certainly I mean I would say that. It wasn't the main character in prep. Leave your experiences going to boarding school as more of a sort of class shock than I would say I did. And you know class is sort of the air. We all breathe. It's maybe especially obvious. Una Boarding School campus. But you know I think it's it's obvious everywhere you know. You can have a sort of exchange with a person like delivering a package to your house and the two of you could probably like assess each other's voices are accents and no things about each other's class or like defied that one of you is in a house receiving a package one of US delivering. The package also says things about class in our society. You know doesn't necessarily say very good things but I think the To like one yet like I was aware of class. And I don't think I was quite as much of a fish out of water as my protagonist. Although certainly I'm like erotic person was even more neurotic as a teenage you write about teenagehood again in in your next book. And I think we'll come back to that because it will say impacts on on the subject matter of Rodham but you went off to Stanford then and you studied creative writing night. You wrote the College newspaper. You registered magazine. What's being a writer? Always the the obvious career choice. Well I think writing was always really important to me and it was like from a very young age for about six or seven. I spent a lot of time reading and writing because I wanted to. I think it helped me make sense of the world and it held my attention and there weren't as many options on net. Netflix back. Then so entertain yourself a little more so definitely writing always played a huge role in my life. I don't think I grew up with the expectation that I would be a full time novelist. I think sometimes I thought I won't be a lawyer or as I got older. I thought you know maybe a social worker or an English teacher or something. I always the closer my adulthood. I think the more it seems like I would do something writing adjacent. But I just don't think anyone can count on being a fulltime writer as you know how they pay their mortgage and I mean going to someone as you did to study at the Iowa. Writer's workshop is no guarantee of coming out. The other end is a fully-fledged writer. But that does give you a better chance than most doesn't it's a huge success rate. It's a it's a wonderful program and I like I loved being there. I learned a ton but the the thing that people don't necessarily realize is not only. Can you go to an excellent writing program the Iraqis and after that you know not have a stable writing career you can be a writer who has had multiple books published in that. Still not the way. You're supporting yourself. And in fact new writing is my full time job. But that's that's an incredible privilege and it's not. It's not something I take for granted. It's very I know that it's very unusual on special. I feel

Ex-CIA officer charged with massive leak to WikiLeaks

"Now charged with this massive leaked to wikileaks joshua schultz is just twenty nine right but he's been charged in this new grand jury indictment and i guess he just had a treasure trove of us government stuff that he turned over to wikileaks that was pretty damaging kate i mean this is one of the major leaks of our time and he was an engineer and he has this this leak the grand jury of courses in dieting and it's to wikileaks and you know what amazes me most about this how on earth are you know these contractors or these employees whether it's the cia nsa private contractor like eric snowden how can they get this passed amount of information out to people and this was now they found out there was a child porn case it was revealed in court that shows this this man was a target of the investigation into wikileaks and then of course the release of the collection was known as bald number seven so it must be a treasure trove of information that has now gotten out there wait and see what happens with that but man that's boyd's gets crazy and that changed of course some of the policies of how they were doubling up on who they're hiring these contractors all that kind of stuff i mean kind of rippling all the way through the and some of the people that they contract out with some of the big companies right right in this is not the only one last june they had an actual security agency contractor reality winner was arrested on charges of leaking online publications in march they had one in minneapolis terry albery was charged with the leak to the interceptor the fbi's procedures i mean and then james wolfensohn so this is the fourth in a row i can't imagine how they're going to continue to let this go on i mean there are electric ways to you know sort of prevent this type of thing from happening yeah absolutely another big story today and this is one i say that america tonight people are talking about this former first lady laura bush she could self she spoke out on sunday night about separating families on the border it was in the washington post has pumped out all over the place she said it was cruel and immoral she said she lives in a border state she appreciates the need to enforce them protect the boundaries but this is hero tolerance policies just cruel it's immoral it's awful you know in two thousand fifteen george bush started this what they call it like a streamlining process brock obama did it and that was to allow for actual prosecution of people so it allowed the government to say you're coming in we can't prosecute you and at least that was a maybe a way to keep less people here or to deal with people especially if they had a criminal background but at that point in time they didn't split families now there's two things that why this is going on two different directions one is that president trump and this is a i think awkward to say the least said well this is a wedge to be using the democrats to get immigration reform if he does this with the families but the second reason and and nobody really is talking about this case too much the second reason is to send the message to people out in mexico that are trying to come across if you come here we're going to separate you from your family's and then in the latino community mexican community families are a big deal and so some people may be maybe dissuaded from coming here if they hear that now again is this is way to say that this is our policy but that's another reason they're doing it yeah speaking of that the house plans to vote on immigration bills this week tell us about it well one of them even on life support it's it's going right straight to the graveyard that's the conservative version that one's done the second one is a compromise the president likes it and right now most people on the democratic side don't like it and and really conservative do not like it so i think that one's on life support i can't imagine we're anything's going to come out of there and of course this is.
