Iranian backlash feared after killing of top general
"President trump says the Iranian military commander killed by a U. S. airstrike in Iraq on Thursday was plotting to kill many Americans it was in a tweet marking his first comments on the targeted killing of general Qassem Soleimani the head of Iran's elite Quds force selling mainly made the deaths of innocent people is sick passion contributing to terrorist plots as far away as New Delhi in London today we remember and honor the victims of solemn manias many atrocities and we take comfort in knowing that his reign of terror is over solid Mady has been perpetrating acts of terror to destabilize the Middle East for the last twenty years what the United States did yesterday should have been done long ago you would be hard pressed to find any disagreement in this country that sold the money had the blood of Americans on his hands but there is plenty of discussion over whether the death is worth the escalation of tensions between the US and Iran we are in depth on the story and we start with CBS news intelligence contributor the former acting head of the CI a Michael morale at stark words on CBS this morning Qassem Soleimani was an evil genius he had a lot of American blood on his hands he was the mastermind behind a Ronnie and malign behaviour in the region the world is a better place without him the problem is that comes at a very high cost number one there will be dead Americans dead civilian Americans as a result of this possibly over the next few days in any place where a Ron has its proxies a rock is the most likely place but also Lebanon Bahrain other places in the Middle East number two this sets a precedent that that senior officials are fair game in this hybrid not yet at war kind of scenario that were in with Iran and that's a dangerous precedent to set number three this is like actually going to enable the hardliners strengthen the hardliners in Iran as we heard earlier Qassem Soleimani extremely popular in Iran and that is going to actually strengthen those people who follow him yes it's good that he's gone but it comes in an extraordinarily high price and that's why the bush administration and the Obama administration chose not to do something like this joining us now is CBS news face the nation moderator and our senior foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Brennan Iran is outraged they're showing some rare unity and some other circles in terms of wanting you know Americans out of the region and that sort of thing and I heard you use the word seismic this morning it absolutely does for president trump who has said he does not want wars in the Middle East assassinating we're targeting one of the top leaders of Iran's military one of the most influential people in Iran who is also considered by the U. S. to be a terrorist blood all over his hands of but taking Qassem Soleimani off the battlefield while he was in neighboring Iraq creates so many different domino's geo politically strategically and questions about okay what's next because this is arguably an act of war this is a really significant decision and we don't know yet no for the trump administration why they acted when they did their been believed in kind of mysterious references to threats and it imminent attacks but no details of what that was Qassem Soleimani he's been planning attacks for two and a half years pretty rapidly a decade before that but pretty pretty steady pace of attacks against US interests in the Middle East since he was pulled out of that nuclear deal so what happens next is such an open question it's got allies it's got adversaries verbas Russia calling it reckless there was some thought that I had to pass through my brain this morning you know in terms of ran threatening to strike back in and seeking revenge and we know they have operational capability not just in that region but they have assets around the world they can rely on they could strike just about anywhere there are powerful organization and and almost brought me back to the days of post nine eleven when your wondering what shoes were gonna drop next well there is this sense of how does this and does David Petraeus a former commander of US troops the Middle East raise then and with Sir only raise now Qassem Soleimani was an enemy of the United States he killed at least six hundred US service people from two thousand three on where he has thousands of dead up to his name across Syria Iraq Lebanon the entire Middle East he has been at odds with the United States no U. S. president has chosen to assassinate him or to execute him were to target him however you want to deny us because it is an act of war arguably this is different than taking out the leader of a terrorist group that isn't directly linked to a nation state Iran is a state whose nuclear program has been stalled because of this diplomatic deal that is in tatters but the rest of the world is still here too the question now is how does Iran respond to this do they restart that nuclear program are they cyber attacks are they retaliation in some way Iran is not a super power the way the United States is they are financially on the ropes the regime is certainly dealt a big blow by this but their desperation has not led to greater stability and that is the challenge with the trump administration's policy does decapitating the I. R. G. C. their revolutionary guard corps mean that they stop all this bad acting around the world or does it just mean somebody steps up to Sony's place we've seen reaction from Republicans like Lindsay Graham who say this guy was a bad actor we've been at war with Iran for years technically a you got Democrats are saying that no making your point that this is different this is like almost taking out a head of state if you will well look we knew that the U. S. was careening toward to national security crises at the same time one with Iran which has a a nascent nuclear program but that the remnants they can quickly start up if they want and then with North Korea which has nuclear weapons now and is quickly developing them this right this diplomatic effort so present from going into an election year has these two national security crises only increasing every candidate running to be the next commander in chief needs to be asked so what do you do the answer cannot just be let's go back to where we were because this has changed completely the atmosphere and the arguably the battleground in the in the

"Welcome to words matter with Katie. Barlow and Joe Lockhart. This is the words matter. Library welcomed awards manner. Well thank you you describe. Have yourself as a history buff before we talk about American history tellers and your latest podcast. I wanted to just get a little bit from you of your background. How you got into this and why history? Sure how I got into this and my background have largely nothing to do with podcasts or history. I became a podcast or by accident. I've always been interested in audio mostly in the music space so you pick up guitar in high school and you get enamored with fit but quickly. I realized that I wasn't the greatest musician or fantastically suited to the stage. But I was in love with recording and so even from a very early age in college I was recording other bands and that passion continued still continues and so I had about me a bunch of recording equipment and prowess and experienced twiddling knobs that also led to composing and editing and then soon doing sound design enforce small projects here locally in Dallas and then that ultimately led to an attempted career attempted small business that focused on audio books but also so that we wanted to produce a podcast in our first podcast was called terms a Political Thriller Audio Drama. That caught the attention of wondering was written in two thousand fifteen about a popular businessman outsider ideologue who captures the White House and So like I said two thousand fifteen we wrote it. We had no idea the circus that we're about to embark on but it was top impression and wondering lighted and they picked it up and one of the best accidental decisions. I've ever made was deciding that me as as the creator of the show should do the ads right. It didn't didn't make any sense for the hero or villain to sell socks on a podcast run character so I wrote and read. The ads My background by Education Shen is marketing. So it Kinda fit. That decision was great because Hernan Lopez at wondering really liked my adds enough enough so that a year later he called me up and asked A. Hey we have this new podcast called dirty John. But it's hosted by journalist whose obligated not to do endorsements so would you write and read the ads and of course I said yes Very quickly thereafter. He asked me another question. Hey we we had this idea for a history podcast cast would you be the host and do the sound design and again I said yes and that was the trip into podcasting that I took all of a sudden American history tellers was born now. He knew that I was interested in history because terms was very political but mostly a study of government and in its own way a history lesson particularly of the twenty Fifth Amendment and so it was a natural fit. I was before business major a history major for a little awhile college and I've always been interested in government and history and politics and the philosophy surrounding them so I left enthusiastically into the space. Well it's interesting. You say that about getting into the ads because in addition to being a huge fan of history tellers American history tellers and it really leaving the first podcast I listen to faithfully and religiously I noticed your ad reading style and even things like when you had an ad for Ziprecruiter you talk about how hard it is to say ziprecruiter which I thought was just a really interesting about it but it's incredibly hard. I admonished them. For naming it that that we had ziprecruiter as well as a as a sponsor and I took that to heart and and wrote that in for our hosts as well Taking a page from yearbook so American history tellers. Let's talk about that. You launched in January of two thousand eighteen and you launched at number one which we we were fortunate we will launch. We made it all the way up to number three but oprah was still ahead of us you are you guys launched it number one. How surprised were you when you saw all that when you realized that this was something that people wanted to listen to? I was flabbergasted. I had no expectations. That would be a number one in the country podcast on cast. You know there's so many obstacles to it you would think one I was a nobody to one re was still very young three. It's about American history. History which seems academic and not a popular culture phenomenon. Not History tellers is a popular culture phenomenon but yet the surprise was I was real but so is the gratification of course of hitting number one but realizing that that there is a thirst for understanding more about about our country and you know from the very beginning that was the mission we wanted history tellers to be a story of the common man in in America throughout history to gain understanding and empathy for what it meant to be American van and hopefully what it means to be American now. This country is his in a tumultuous period. And I think history tellers in particular wanted to look back and feel more about being American is and it seemed resonated. Well I think that you very much succeeded in telling those stories through the eyes of every day Americans and it was one of the things that surprised rised delighted me when I first tuned into your first episode about the Cold War because as somebody who went through undergraduate as a history major we went through graduate school my master's degree and I took some time off to work in a political office thinking I'm going to do that between my master's my PhD. And I got sucked into politics and and never left but even somebody who has studied these subjects in the cold. War was one of the things that I had studied fairly extensively written papers on it and at a minor focus on it I learned things listening to you and your podcast and listening to it through the eyes as you say of everyday Americans Americans talk about how you guys decided as a team. That was the way you were going to tell the story and just a little bit about those stories because you put a lot of detail in them at the very beginning. Yeah certainly so. Like I mentioned her non Lopez the head of one very approach me with this concept. It was a bit nascent when he did but he had the title. The idea and the direction in very much wanted it to be in the style of a few other podcasts on his network wondering a one was Mark Ramsey's inside series which looks at Hollywood movies like inside Psycho Geico inside jaws or Star Wars and tells these kind of production line stories and then also historian Patrick winans show tides of history history which also brings the sweep of the fall of the Roman Empire and the The rise of modern civilisation in Europe down to an individual level of the soldier soldier the peasants the clergyman these are all very evocative and effective and was the impetus for history tellers in the Cold War in particular. That was our debut series because was an interesting period for me. I lived through the tail end of it and I had studied it and it felt in that moment of two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen that we were hearing very loud reverberations of it at the moment right yes Putin had just finished annexing. The Ukraine was horrible rumblings in bad relations with that country meanwhile North Korea. We've got nuclear tensions it. It just seemed very cold war to me so if we were to try and remind Americans that we've been here before it seemed like the Cold War was the first place to go back and look to but you're right. I learned so much more about it in a fantastic way. I mean I'm still haunted by the baby tooth survey right and I learned about about wild doing this series and I'm the father of a five year old in it's shocking to me to imagine myself saving my my daughter's first tooth and then sending it away to some lab to be ground down and analyzed a mass spectrometer to see how much radio-activity my daughter has absorbed and that was the real thing and it proved that these kids of the fifties were absorbing a lot of radioactivity. It's it's shocking. It's frightening and it inside very very personal personal and understandable you start off that particular series on the Cold War with the neighbor getting visit from the FBI. Let's take a listen and Magin that it's nineteen fifty one. You live in Rosebank a leafy section of North Baltimore About Three Miles North Johns Hopkins University one Friday morning. You're at home having your Second Cup of coffee when there's a knock at the door open it and a man in a black suit flashes a badge. Hello Sir I'm from the FBI. Mind if I come in and ask you a couple of questions about your neighbor the biologist. Oh just the university. Of course the two of you sit down you know your neighbor occasionally worked for the government so this all feels routine. How long have you known him? The agent starts off with softballs a couple of years. What's his family lying? We're not particularly close. But he's respectable quiet. Keeps himself teaches Sunday school at Baptist church around the corner in fact His his parents were missionaries. He was born in China. Oh China does he speak Chinese. You don't know but Cincinnati and opening agent gets a little more aggressive the FBI has reason to believe that your neighbor has had contact with communist organizations six years ago. It seems he was the faculty sponsor for a student dance organized by American Youth for Democracy which is a well no communist front. Can you think of any other times. Your neighbor has associated with communists. This is ridiculous ridiculous. He's a staunch and loyal American citizen. He has no use whatsoever for communism or any other form ideology. Are you sure how do you know how can you know the interview ends. And you show the agent out and sit back down for a few minutes to collect your thoughts truth be told you don't really know your neighbor all that. Well I mean you like him but he does sometimes expresses views slightly left of center. You remember during the war. He wants ask you to sign a petition protesting segregation in the military and in the newspapers. You've read that. The civil rights movement is riddled with Communists. You Finish your coffee and think about your cousin's son who's fighting the communist somewhere in the mountains of Korea. Your mind wanders a bit back to when you took your daughter to the movies last week. newsreel before the matinee should streams of eastern European Refugees Fujii's fleeing to the West abandoning everything for a chance at freedom.

I want to go onto a few other things before he does the peer Nick, salmon. Remember, Nick, salmon, Covington Catholic teenager. Remember, how he was defamed by various media outlets. And they sued the Washington compost. They've soon the constipated news network now they're suing NBC. Attorneys for nNcholas salmon rights, the Washington Times filed a two hundred seventy five million dollar lawsuit against NBC universal over its coverage of the Kentucky teen accusing the network at creating a false narrative driven by its anti Trump agenda, the lawsuit that third filed by the salmon attorneys against major media outlets allege that NBC targeted the Covington Catholic high school student. It's reporting on his January eighteen counter with native American activists, Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial. Here's more example of unfreedom of the press. And by the way, this is an example, it's in the book to NBC universal created a false narrative by portraying the confrontation as a hate crime kit minute by nNcholas said the complaint district court for the eastern district of Kentucky. The lawsuit alleged. The teen was an easy target for NBC universal to advance its anti Trump agenda because he was a sixteen year old white Catholic student who had attended the right to life March that day, I was wearing a maga- cap at the time of the incident, which he had purchased earlier in the day as a souvenir. Salmon attorney l Lin Wood of Atlanta and Todd V mcmurtry of fort Mitchell Kentucky have also sued the Washington Post for two hundred fifty million CNN for two hundred seventy five million over their coverage of the episode. I noticed that the White House correspondents dinner. None of this came up. None of this came up. Because the new side of cable and the new side of our newspapers, you can't really tell the difference in many of these news outlets. While they're out to get people. The post filed last month the motion to dismiss the lawsuit. Argon the newspaper's coverage at nNcholas was not only accurate. It was ultimately favorable to him. Wow. What a bunch of fen galleys.

Attorney General William Barr testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee
"Attorney general William bar has taken his seat before the Senate Judiciary committee where he will testify about the Muller report. And how he responded to it are Juliet Papa has more now in this live report from the ten ten wins newsroom. And Larry Republican Senate judiciary, chairman Lindsay. Graham, making opening statements before the attorney general testifies he admits he did not read the whole Mullah report he held it up some four hundred plus pages says it was very clear as to what it did did not happen. There was no collusion. No evidence suggests President Trump had any intent to obstruct investigations after all this time and all this money, Mr. Muller and his team concluded there was no collusion. I didn't know like many of you here on the Republican side. We all agreed that Mr. Muller should be allowed to do his job. Without interference Graham says we've got a lot of work to do to protect the country against bad actors. He says he'll introduce legislation to protect the country in the elective process since Russian actively, hacked and interfere with that process. William bar took is seat at the table photographers gathered round as he sipped water prior to the hearing congressman Adam Schiff suggested that bar mischaracterized. The Muller reports. And what we were seeing. I think is that anyone that gets close to Donald Trump becomes tainted by that experience, and the the fundamental conundrum is how ethically serve a deeply unethical president, and as we are seeing with Bill bar, and I think as we saw with rod Rosenstein, you can't the Senate committee will ask attorney general bar about the actions. He took to summarize the Muller report. And why he took them Muller wrote a letter Tim bar just days ago, saying he misconstrued the report on the issue of whether the president obstructed investigations into Russian
Graham says Barr committed to letting Mueller probe continue
"Just as deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein is preparing to exit to talk through the changes at Justice and what they mean for the Russia investigation. NPR's Terry Johnson's here in the studio with us. I carry hey are what kind of reception did. William forget from senators today, mostly a warm one Bill Barr met with Republican lawmakers, including Lindsey Graham, the incoming chairman of the judiciary committee, Lindsay Graham told reporters he asked bar a lot of questions about the Russia investigation in the man leading it special counsel, Robert Muller bar and Muller are apparently good friends. Miller attended the weddings of bars. Children and Lindsey Graham says bar told him Muller is not on a witch hunt bar said he would make sure Muller can finish the job. And according to Graham bar also said he would quote, lean on the side of transparency. In terms of releasing any public report that Muller prepares all this new information, maybe coming out now to make bars nomination more attractive to democrat. Okay. So it's clear what the central tension point in this confirmation fight will be given that the Justice department is changing leaders in the middle of this contentious investigation, while his confirmation really be that easy. You know, there are a few complicating factors here. Whether or not these guys socialize with each other bar has been critical of some parts of this Russia probe. Democrats have been asking Bill barter recuse himself from overseeing it that's because he wrote a memo last year to the Justice department arguing that obstruction of Justice should be out of bounds. When it comes to Trump's firing a former FBI director, Jim Komi in that memo. Bill Barham, essentially said the firing was within the president's power not a crime, but bar has not agreed to recuse himself. In fact, it's hard to imagine why he would do that. And take this job. Remember, President Trump had a vendetta against the guy who used to be attorney general Jeff Sessions for recusing himself and leaving the. Russia probe in the hands of the deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, and there is news about rod Rosenstein future. Today, Tulsa latest there. NPR's confirmed Rosenstein plans to leave the Justice department sometime after Bill bar is confirmed by that time Rosenstein will open on the job nearly two years. That's a long tenure for a deputy AG. It's probably the hardest job in the department in normal times. These are not normal times. I'm told Rosen signs leaving on his own terms. He's not being post, even though the writing's kind of been on the wall since the New York Times reported last year at one point he had discussed wiring, President Trump Rosenstein sides he was being sarcastic. They never went ahead with that idea as long as you're in the studio, I want to ask you about a development in the case against President Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, this looks like some self inflicted damage

Is that they've already declared the FBI investigation to be inadequate. They are going to want to extend it until next year sometime special counsel two and a half years later. It's not about getting to the truth. It's just not about getting to the truth. And all they haven't interviewed Kevin on Ford.

When the vote finally comes up later this week. Now, they're talking about jumping the gun and a little learning is a dangerous thing. They've declared. I guess the FBI investigation to be over because they read something that said that it might have ended as soon as Tuesday afternoon or Tuesday evening. The FBI has not indicated that it's over.

"Talked about the day the night that you've described in the summer of nineteen eighty-two. Thank you for being willing to do that. I know it's difficult. I'd like to shift gears and discuss the last several background Lindsey Graham is trying to get Grassley lease attention. I think he's saying I'm gonna do this. Yeah. Well, you know, he tried to pipe up there. He he got on Mike for a little bit than somebody turned the Mike soft because the ideas that you can't let everybody talk when you're right Lindsay Graham is trying to assert himself. He knows I'm better at this than everybody here, including her let me talk, which I don't know if he's going to be able to or not. In your statement. You said that on July sixth you had a quote sense of urgency to relate the information to the Senate and the president did you contact either the Senate or the president honorable before July sixth? No, I did not live coverage Cavanaugh Ford testimony here on the Armstrong and Getty show. Six had you spoken to any member of congress. And when I say congress, I mean, the Senate or the house of representatives or any congressional staff members about your alligators. No. Why did you contact the Washington Post that on July sixth? So I was panicking because I knew the time line was sort for the decision. And people were giving me advice on the beach people who don't know about. The processes that. They were giving me a base and many people told me he need to hire a lawyer. And I didn't do that. I didn't understand why would need a lawyer. Somebody said call the New York Times, call the Washington Post put an anonymous tip go to your congress person. And when I weighed those options I felt like the best option was to try to do the civic route, which is to go shit. My congress person who happens to be an issue. So I called her office. I also put in the anonymous tip to the Washington Post and neither unfortunately, neither got back to me. I'm getting a better sense of who she is. And what she's like in that that makes sense to me the kind of person she is the sort of person that needs to put another front door in her house because her claustrophobia variety of other things. She's not a calculating to me. She is not a calculating political actor, no right now, she's got a number of issues, which doesn't mean she wasn't sexually assaulted all those years ago. In fact, I think she probably was just don't know if it was Mike Cavanaugh back to the prosecutor selection of the nominee. You testified that congresswoman issues office contacted you on July ninth is that right? They contacted me the date that the nominee was announced. So that seems like likely how'd you talk to about your allegations? With anyone in her office before the date of July nine. I told the receptionist on the phone. On July ten to you texted the Washington Post again, which was really the third time. Is that right? Second date. Third time. Let's.
