Michael Morrell, former acting director, CIA said that was the most significant, um, targeting operations since taken down bin Laden. So that was a big deal. But this is in the news because where the president is talking about removing Our troops from Afghanistan and Iraq and the question I think that our voters need to think about is well, is that going? That forward presence is that there's some value to that, Um In terms of detecting and preempting threats before they're visited on on our shores or not, And that's that's something I think I'd like to hear from both candidates about their own their calculus about that.

"The united what'd States is moving quickly apparently to end the ongoing war in Afghanistan this week Secretary State Mike Pompeo reached an agreement with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to accelerate efforts but a former deputy director of the CIA says U._S. talks with the Taliban our charade raid aimed at easing the trump administration's exit from the conflict where we're joined now on the line by Paul Rogers professor of Peace Studies at Bradford University. Pull it off NICCI. Thanks for being with us. <hes> Michael Morrell said that this is about saving face for the U._S.. Your face saving way to extricate itself from Afghanistan. I guess it's fairly obese but what what does he mean by that. Exactly I think this is about American politics Michael Morell and how to long period and service with the way he was deputy director towards at the end of the Obama period in fact acting director of occasions when he retired he joined beacon global strategies in Washington <hes> quite well funded group that basically provides strategic advice for big business banks on the rest. It tends to be Democrat leading it also runs this intelligence matters blog so essentially he's very much person you would say on this slightly more progressive side of American politics and pound of this. I think is is really trying to put phone with the idea that trump wants <unk> out basically because it will help him get reelection basically getting the United States out of a war which is don't them for wasn't eighteen plus years <hes> would be popular at home in a sense <hes> trump isn't to both about high does it and so what morale is saying that in reality <hes> negotiating way out with the Taliban and saying you're going to get peace is not really on the cards and the fact is the Taliban are not in any way going to give up an morale what content the actor control much more Afghanistan <hes> than most people sube so I think the American politics built up into this but the reality is that the Taliban do have far more control than is normally knowledge in fact on the American aside. You don't get so cheesy figures now's a year or two ago <hes> on the reality though politically as trump does want out not at any price visit almost any price in the short term. He's not being backward about saying that really since he came to officer. Can you give us a sense may be about how the actual U._S.. Involvement on the ground in Afghanistan has shifted if it's all under the trump administration well in fact it's somewhat increased. I mean Obama decided you know did the huge surge back in two thousand ten which was wrong muddled on McCain done if he'd won in two thousand eight the key difference between a bomber McCain was that he accepted the need to reinforce troops to try to negotiate from a real position of strength and you find hype about two thousand eleven and twelve something like one hundred forty thousand foreign troops in Afghanistan hundred thousand Americans A- Bama's people born gave up on that took it right down so currently we have about fifteen. Maybe sixteen thousand foreign troops including building a plus caught a number of private security people of the majority of those fifteen sixteen thousand American in fact trump is actually allowed to increase slightly in in in the last year or two but that really is on the adviser of his security..

"We are live in the Mercedes Benz plano news center. Well, the president's state of the union address last night highlighted several of his foreign policy priorities, including a second summit with North Korean leader, Kim Jong UN at the end of the month. CBS national security contributor, Michael Morrell. Who is the former deputy and acting director of the CIA till CBS this morning North Korea must agree to get rid of its nuclear weapons for the second summit to mean, anything sink, the president serves credit for getting us into negotiations. That's important. But look at what's happened since the first summit, right? They've stopped nuclear missile testing. But they've made no move at all towards denuclearization. In fact, we know that they continue to do activities on the ground to examine their program. And sanctions have weakened as other nations have loosened the restrictions on because things are looking better. And most importantly, Kim has a seat on the stage. So what the president has to do with the second summit is has to incentivize or or or make clear to Kim that he's got to move towards negotiations or he's not gonna get another. So you concern that President Trump will promise to formerly declare an end to the Korean war. My biggest concern is that he will cut a deal with Kim on ICBM's. Right. Let's get rid of the ICBM's that threaten the United States. And let's not worry so much about the nuclear weapons that threaten the rest of the region. That's my biggest concern seeking of weapons the president hinted that he'd be open to negotiate a nuclear arms trading with Russia after pulling out of the recent one what should one look like this is an important agreement because people are more likely to use short range nuclear weapons than they are long range an important agreement. The Russians have been in violation of it for some time. I think it was the right thing to do for us to pull out of it to force a new negotiation to bring the Russians back in. And to bring the Chinese, and that's very important because the Chinese are doing things that are in violation of the agreement that they're not part of so new agreement with the Russians that includes the Chinese right thing to do. He also says that because of the work of the president and his administration that ISIS is effectively over we don't have to worry about that anymore. You think that's true the intelligence community made very clear at the worldwide threat testimony last week that ISIS has not been defeated in Syria. Then he said, then thousands of them. But then the president said, well, my people told me that there words were taken out of context on those words are on paper. You can look at them and more importantly yesterday, the commander of the US central command. General Joe hotel said not only do they remain a threat. But if we leave there's a real chance that there will be an ISIS resurgence. It's seven forty four.

"Knee will on CBS this morning contributor, and former deputy director of the CIA Michael Morrell who for time served as the acting Syria director said well, the Turks finally gaining access to the consulate alongside Saudi officials is significant he said, he wouldn't expect a lot adding their narratives are so in contrast in terms of the US response to Saudi Arabia. There was this exchange on CBS this morning. There's a lot of pressure for the US to react how long can investigation like this go on for. That's a that's a great question as the information flows in the analysts will start to make judgments, but along with that judgment will be a confidence level. So they could start out by saying, you know, we believe the Saudis killed him inside the consulate, but we only have low confidence in that. And over a period of a week to two weeks that confidence level could rise. Is. So there's really two pieces the judgment and the confidence level, and I would say once the analysts have the information. It could be seven ten fourteen days before they come down with a firm conclusion, you know, the president seemed very reluctant Mike to end the business deal the arms business deal with Saudi Arabia. If this is true. Is there any way that we should still do business with Saudi Arabia? He pointed out, it's awful lot of money Gail. I think there's a there's three different buckets of things the United States could do if indeed the Saudis were involved in his disappearance in his death. One at at at the low end of the spectrum would be limited sanctions against those individuals and those entities who were specifically involved in the murder in the middle would be a delay in arms sales, and at the far end would be sort of broad sanctions against Saudi Arabia in general that analysis from a Michael Morell on CBS this morning. The former deputy director of the CIA. Meanwhile, the Washington Post is reporting the J P Morgan Chase. Ceo, Jamie, Dimon the latest in a series of media and business executives now. Skipping an investment conference in Saudi Arabia at the moment. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is still scheduled to be in attendance occurs next week October twenty third through the twenty fifth and earlier today, we talked to gene Waylon she is global business reporter for the Washington Post to explain what she has learned. Sure. So it's a nickname Dabo's in the desert the official name is future investment initiative. And it was this is going to be the second inaugural conference in each time in Saudi Arabia in Riyadh. The first one started last year, and it was the Saudi Crown prince is a big effort to try to open the Saudi economy to the outside world to try to attract more foreign investment to the country to try to aid his push. To diversify. So he's economy away from oil and protected in the future when perhaps oil revenue won't be as robust as it is today. And of course, the list continues to grow those individuals not attending this canceling their plans to attend including Jamie diamond the chief executive of J P Morgan Chase. Is that significant? It is significant Jamie diamond probably is so far the most high profile business leader tobacco of the conference. He his Bank TV Morgan has a lot of business with the Saudis and is hoping to gain even more business like like, oh, western banks are Saudi Arabia is awash in oil money and has a lot of money to spend. Banks are vying to help the kingdom issue bonds to help the kingdom sell some of its state owned companies on the markets. Saudi Arabia has considered for quite a while. Now privatizing part of Saudi Aramco, the state owned oil company and banks all want to help. Win that business to privatize it to have an initial public offering for which they would make very big fees. The officers. Finance companies want to attract Saudi money to invest in their funds and their projects. And so it was probably a very hard decision for a large Bank like JP Morgan to take a stand on this some of the other. He's he was one of the first from the finance field tobacco out last week. Some of the earlier executives tobacco were from the pack and media and entertainment industries, which the Saudis don't have as many dealings with but have been trying to do to try to help. Set up. More of the tech sector in Saudi Arabia. It set up more of an entertainment sector in Saudi Arabia. They've they've hoped to develop their own TV and film content. Saudi Arabia, again, all is part of crown prince Mohammad bin Salman efforts to make make the Saudi economy about something more than oil and last night on sixty minutes to the president's point. He basically said if we don't do business with Saudi Arabia other countries will will take in wherever there's a void. So to that point is this potentially. Would this have an impact on US businesses? Yes. Yes. It would. It's as I say Saudi Arabia has a lot of money. It's the largest country. I believe in the Middle East with a very large young population. So it's a big market for investing in it has a lot of money for to attract to all kinds of investments overseas. And so, you know, as Trump is pointed out, we sell quite a lot of arms to the Saudis. So yes, I think censoring Saudi Arabia does carry some risk Christian businesses, which is why some of them probably. Were deliberating quite intensely internally before coming out and backing out of this conference. So as of now the status of this conference is what it's still happening. As far as I know they some bankers and. Finance officials have said they're still going some consulting companies. Haven't said one way or another which leads me to assume they are still going there were dozens and dozens of people listed on the conference's website as confirmed speakers for the conference, including McKinsey, and Deloitte, and some other consulting companies who are also sponsoring the conference. So as far as I know, it's still happening. And we'll we'll see what other business leaders decide in the next week or two gene Waylon global business reporter for the Washington Post.

"You may recall the president of the United States decided to revoke the security clearance of the, former director the CIA, John Brennan apparently because you didn't like some of the things that John Brennan was saying. About him so joining us now is Michael Morrell served as deputy director for the CIA as well as the acting director twice I in twenty eleven then from twenty twelve to thirteen also podcast called the. Intelligence matters so you signed onto a letter supporting. John Brennan that's been getting a lot of. Attention a why did you sign on So I just didn't sign I played a role in making a letter happen, and the the group, of us came together I'm really extraordinary group of of former directors and deputy directors from. From both sides of the aisle and has served serve both both kinds of presidents and we did it for two reasons one because we thought John's integrity John Brennan integrity was being researched we don't think. This was about John at all John is a. True patriot he has dedicated and committed his. Life to protecting his nation I happen to know firsthand that there are Americans were alive today because. Of the work that John did on counterterrorism at this was not this? Was not about national security this was political and so we wanted to we wanted. To speak up for John. In that regard but we also wanted to make the point that the use of national security. Tools in this case the granting and the revocation of security clearances for political purposes is unprecedented in our country is is dangerous in our country and. Needs to stop so those are the two reasons that the group of, us came together do you have. Any sense of what the morale is within the. CIA I'm presuming that you. Still have friends and acquaintances former colleagues remain in touch with It's great question it's actually pretty good. You know I think that that is a. Bit surprising we'll be a bit surprising to people I think when the president I came to office and you know a lot of words. Were thrown around including calling the. Intelligence community Nazis morale was pretty bad but. Overtime Mike Pompeo who was then the director of CIA. And now the secretary of state really rebuilt morale he got access to the president. He made it, has a good relationship with the president so he got the intelligence community and CIA into the Oval Office every day they spend a half hour. To forty five minutes with the president he asked questions it's interactive so. The morale there is pretty good a lot of times politics doesn't doesn't? Influence the place doesn't infect the place I was actually in their today for retirement Ceremony and believe it. Or not not a, single person, raised with, me the revocation of John's clearances or a letter that that I signed last night it. Never came up and you know. It's a place that that people leave their politics interviews. In their cars and they come in and they and they work. Their butts. Off for their country there was worried that this would have a. Chilling effect the, pulling of. The clearance if you disagree with the. President's you say things he doesn't like he's going to, take punitive action against. You that's or does it rally everybody together Yes so I do think I do think it's different for former officials right and I do think what the president is trying to do is he's trying to intimidate, four former officials for speaking out. And there's really two groups of former officials one are former senior officials like me and my cayden and John Brennan and this is not going to get. Us to stop speaking out. Right we have we have a lot of confidence we're going to continue to speak out we did so last night I did so today I'm doing so right this minute it's the next group. Down that I worry about those people, who who rely on their clearances to work at the fence contractors and, contractors for the intelligence community who do write op EDS who do speak to the. Media it's that group of people who I worry about that may be intimidated here. Because they need those clearances to put food on their table of their families I do worry about them what, should the American public make whole this I think, they? Should see. This as another example of where. The president has broken a norm which. Is nobody. Before in history that I. Know of has ever years the revocation have. A security clearance as a political tool never happened this is unprecedented so this is the 'nother breaking of a norm and I think the breaking norms political orange in this country is one, of the most dangerous things that's. Happening because once has broken other people will follow suit and and that's what's dangerous here will this has been broken wants to get broken again there's the. List of the other names. It is said to be being looked at Absolutely and one of the things that I'm I'm I'm concerned about. Here is pretty clear to me that for the president this is as much about the Russia investigation as it is, about John speaking out there now he has his he has.
