"COVID-19 cases are rising nearly everywhere in the world. The WHO sass. By The Associated Press, Geneva. The number of new coronavirus cases rose by 18% in the last week, with more than 4.1 million cases reported globally, according to the World Health Organization. The UN health agency said in its latest weekly report on the pandemic that the worldwide number of deaths remained relatively similar to the week before, at about 8500. COVID related deaths increased in three regions. The Middle East, Southeast Asia, and the Americas. The biggest weekly rise in new COVID-19 cases was seen in the Middle East, where they increased by 47%, according to the report released late Wednesday. Infections rose by about 32% in Europe and Southeast Asia, and by about 14% in the Americas, WHO said. WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said cases were on the rise in 110 countries, mostly driven by the omicron variants BA four and BA 5. This pandemic is changing, but it's not over. Tetris said this week during a press briefing. He said the ability to track COVID-19's genetic evolution was under threat as countries relaxed surveillance and genetic sequencing efforts, warning that would make it more difficult to catch emerging and potentially dangerous new variants. He called for countries to immunize their most vulnerable populations, including health workers and people over 60, saying that hundreds of millions remain unvaccinated, and at risk of severe disease and death. Tedros said that while more than 1.2 billion COVID-19 vaccines have been administered globally, the average immunization rate in poor countries is about 13%. If rich countries are vaccinating children from as young as 6 months old and planning to do further rounds of vaccination, it is incomprehensible to suggest that lower income countries should not vaccinate and boost their most at risk people, he said. According to figures compiled by oxfam and the people's vaccine alliance, fewer than half of the 2.1 billion vaccines promised to poorer countries by the group of 7 large economies have been delivered. Earlier this month, the United States authorized COVID-19 vaccines for infants and preschoolers, rolling out a national immunization plan targeting 18 million of the youngest children. American regulators also recommended that some adults get updated boosters in the fall, that match the latest coronavirus variants.

"And human safety. This is AP news. I'm Rita foley. President Biden's talking about abortion, laws, Russia's war in Ukraine and a number of other things this morning. He just spoke to reporters as the NATO summit winds up in Madrid. We are going to support Ukraine as long as it takes. His prediction for how Russia's war in Ukraine ends. I don't know what how it's going to end, but it will not end with a Russian defeat of Ukraine in Ukraine. And on the controversial subject of abortion, now that the Supreme Court has overturned roe versus wade. I believe we have to codify roe V wade in the law and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that. And if the filibuster gets in the way, it's like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this. The president leaving the NATO summit now returning home. A new AP poll shows about half of Americans say former president Trump should be charged with a crime for his role in what happened on January 6th. The house January 6th committee subpoenaed pat cipollone, a top Trump era White House lawyer, the AP's Mike Gracia. The subpoena was issued one day after former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified that cipollone warned against then president Donald Trump going to the capitol with thousands of his supporters. We're going to get charges every crime imaginable if we make that movement happen. And do you remember which crimes mister cipollone was concerned with? In the days leading up to the 6, we had conversations about potentially obstructing justice or defrauding the electoral account. Cipollone gave the committee an informal interview on April 13th, but he has refused to provide on the record a testimony. Mike Gracia, Washington. It's more evidence that inflation is painfully high. A measure of inflation that's closely tracked by the fed rose 6.3% in May from a year earlier, this is a P news. The World Health Organization says the number of COVID cases is up around the world. The AP's Ben Thomas drills down on these numbers. The WHO says COVID cases were up 18% last week with more than 4.1 million new cases reported globally. The Middle East saw the biggest rise up by 47% infections rose by about 32% in Europe and Southeast Asia and by about 14% in the Americas. The number of deaths remained at about 8500 worldwide, but increased in three regions, again the Middle East, Southeast Asia and the Americas. The WHO says the rise is mostly driven by omicron variants, VA four and BA 5.

"At Jimbo talks More COVID what I know nobody wants to hear that But of course we've been going back and forth back and forth and back and forth on this pandemic And now Jackie Quinn reports that the United Nations health agency says there's been an increase in the number of coronavirus cases around the world for the first time since January but the death rate is dropping The World Health Organization says the number of coronavirus deaths worldwide is dropped by 17% in the last week to 43,000 but the number of new infections has increased about 8% to 11 million around the world The largest increase in cases comes in the western Pacific and Africa but there has been a 20% decline in COVID cases in the Middle East Southeast Asia and the Americas I'm Jackie Quinn All right so we'll talk about that tonight with your calls at one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 and with our guest repeat guest Peter Pitts former associate commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration He is the president cofounder of the center for medicine in the public interest and is the author of the book the next normal from the Lulu dot com more about which a bit later on Peter thank you for joining us tonight My pleasure good evening Jenny So we're hearing about more COVID cases and these are apparently less fatal Is that this latest variant that we've been hearing about In other words does this old news It is old news and it's good news The omicron variant is very contagious More people are catching it But fewer people are dying or suffering from serious manifestations And being hospitalized and that's due to a lot of reasons not the least of which is a relatively high vaccination rate in the West End and some of the regions that we just heard about from the report You know the goal here is not to eradicate COVID-19 from the map That's on how viruses work What happens is we succeed by moving from a pandemic to an endemic like the annual flu Every year it arrives every year we get we get sick and every year we survive So the good news is we've beaten this together We need to recognize that we've heard the privilege to among other things Take off our masks We should keep in mind too something else till we talk about the flu like it's always been around No it's been around for about a century and it is a direct outgrowth of the great pandemic of 1918 coming out of World War I which of course was effectively spread throughout the world by all of the troops returning to their various homes around the world but we should keep in mind that we just learned to live with it Even though I might point out that people die from the flu every single year and it's just that we've come to accept it I mean 30 40,000 people die from a car accident in this country every year And we've just come to accept it Are we reaching that point where every year the flu including a variant of COVID will be back around and some of us will die from it but we're not going to go panicky and running down the street screaming the sky is falling and will develop new vaccines like we do for the flu every year In other words we will simply accept what is a new burden that mother nature has imposed on us That's exactly right And the good news is that every year we'll have to take one additional shot It looks like there will be a dual shot both for a new flu strain and for COVID So one shot every year as we do right now and to teaching moments Jim also has to be importance of vaccines and especially getting the flu vaccine every year We've learned that it works We've learned that we can get it done We've learned that we need to get a thumb So I think good news all around if we can keep the politics out of it And we could assume that just because stop assuming that just because you can Google epidemiology that you have become an epidemiologist just your two cents worth on this whole notion of how mRNA vaccines are not real vaccines I would love a dollar for every time I've heard that on this program I wouldn't have to work in radio Your thoughts about their efficacy their efficiency and any inherent dangers they're in Well let me be straightforward here mRNA vaccines are safer to make their more effective and they're less expensive to manufacture So it's a triple win And they do work and they are FDA approved and they don't cause untoward side effects People talk about myocarditis you're more likely to get myocarditis from COVID-19 than you are from the COVID-19 vaccine So the vaccine can be considered protective in that respect And it's really time for people to stop messing around and stop being foolish with silly theories out there I want to be respectful of everybody's opinions go to the certain points you've got to follow the science and get with the program All right now then with that in mind here one of the principle things we were going to talk about tonight and we will do so right now with Peter Pitts former FDA commissioner is whether or not we're going to need yet another COVID-19 booster shot now a full disclosure I've had all my shots I've had the Moderna two shot series and the additional booster I have a somewhat compromised immune system so I got it on that fairly early And so are we talking about now a fourth shot at some point for me and then further down the road in the months and years that follow a 5th 6th 7th and 8th shots what are we talking about here Well it's important to be ahead of the curve in this conversation but it's not good to be ahead.

This guy's been at their, you know, whatever you want to call the palace, if you will. He's also very tight with the premiere over in Serbia. So, you know, these guys, they're entrenched, and they have powerful friends and allies. And they use that to exploit and to continue to conduct the business that they do. Well, we've got some friends in various places that are much more in the know than we are.

My last question a secretary now. Your time is limited taiwan ukraine and pakistan. These are the immediate consequence nations from our collapse. I think it's a very dangerous moment for the first two countries and i am disgusted with the third what ought to be the consequences for pakistan. And what should we be doing for taiwan ukraine on the front lines of america's enemy. I said yesterday to a group of folks. I was with that What what could we do to begin to restore america's credibility in the world. I think a really good start would be to begin delivering significant weapons systems to taiwa just as absolute show that the united states is going to continue to be with them and make clear to the chinese communist party. That what happened in afghanistan is not going to happen type thing. Whatever that america's not gonna abandon a longtime foe in the face of a timeout sparty. Yes exactly that. That could have been an ally in the face of a threat from the chinese communist party ukraine. The same. i talked about the fact that it would be really good time to send a high-level mission to ukraine and a team that was prepared to engage in economic activity. You could still make the decision to close down. The nordstrom pipeline bolstering the ukrainian people. Those are the kinds of things that a leader could do today to demonstrate to our allies rather every country from the middle east southeast asia to demonstrate to them that america will continue to stand with its friends in the face of challenges from our adversary. What happened here. hugh is clear. The taliban pushed violated the agreement for sure but they pushed on. America at america withdrew when that happened in the trump administration when our adversaries pushed on america america responded with real force would cost them some money threaten americans we took down that threat when al baghdadi and has isis caliphate threaten america. We took down that threat. This administration has taken precisely opposite response and it calls for american leadership to demonstrate. Today that we're still going to be with our friends in tough times. Mr eckerd i know your time is limited. Thank you for joining me. Come back often and thank you appreciate it. Thank you have a good morning sir. I i've got to say the president of the united states. I hope the is listening. Needs to take questions today. Like mike pompeo just took questions and took questions from reporters throughout his tenure. As secretary of state as trump took precedent. President trump took questions every day.

"And welcome to the inquisitors podcast. Have you ever noticed that the more dangerous something is the more we are interested in it. Take snakes for example cobras are fascinating and dangerous group of snakes today. We are talking about several features that distinguish them from other snakes first of all. They are all venomous. They use venom. For killing prey and for defense a cobra can bite and invalidate a person or animal if they feel threatened or cornered they are a- lapid that means they have short hollow feigns in the front of their mouths there. Things are not very big but their venom is strong when they bite their venom flows through the hollow fangs and into the victim cobra. venom is neuro toxic. It affects the victim's nervous system. The victim loses the ability to swallow speak goes blind experiences muscle weakness and is in terrible pain. A small animal will die quickly but some cobras have enough venom to kill even a large animal. Doctors have anti-venom to treat people with cobra bites but it has to be given quickly before too much. Nerve damage is done. Cobras have an excellent sense of smell and good night vision these features make them stealthy hunters. Their coloring helps too because it works as camouflage cobras can be reddish yellow black brown speckled or abandoned. Their coloring helps them hide wherever they live in the grasses or sand or forest like all snakes cobras are death but they can sense vibrations through the ground. cobras are not picky eaters. They are carnivores and they are happy to eat birds. Small mammals lizards eggs other snakes and animals. They find that are already dead. They have a slow metabolism so they can go weeks or even months between meals. Cobras are good mothers. They lay up to forty eggs at a time and incubate them for two or three months. The mother will stay near her nest and defend her eggs. Wild-boar and mongoose are the cobra's main enemies. Mongoose are a small mammal that has very thick furred designed to protect them against cobra. Bites mongoose are super fast and can buy a cobra on the neck before the snake can attack them and they love to eat snake. Eggs cobras are native to the eastern hemisphere. They live in africa. India the middle east southeast asia and indonesia. They like hot tropical areas but they are just as happy in grassland as they are in a forest cobras will climb trees and hide underground to they can be anywhere. The true cobras are members of the genus najah but we include other snakes cobras who can raise a hood on their neck when they feel cornered or irritated cobras can spread the ribs on their neck to form a flat wide section which makes them look larger and let's animals and people know that they should back away. Cobras will also stand. They can lift the front third of their bodies off the ground. This is a good attack position and very intimidating. some cobras can spit venom through their fengs. They aim for their victims is and their venom can cause blindness not all cobras can spit cobras are generally large snakes the smallest that mozambique spitting cobra is about four feet long the largest venomous snake in the world is the king cobra they can grow to eighteen feet. These snakes are shy and they avoid people when they can like lots of snakes. They are vulnerable because humans are cutting down their habitat. King cobras need forest to live in and space to live away from humans as people move into their territories. The snakes are endanger because people are afraid to live near them. I would be too. Lots of zoos. Have cobra's reptile houses. Where we can see them and admire their beautiful colors safely. Next time you're at the zoo. Say hello to a beautiful cobra..

"Former technology and Emily Chang in San Francisco. The New York Stock Exchange says it will delist three Chinese companies to comply with President Trump's executive order, which bars American investments in China based firms that are affiliated with Military this as China cracks down on its own tech giants, including an antitrust probe into Ali Baba and tightened regulations in the Fintech space, which scuttled and financials $35 billion. I P o plan. Joining us now to discuss. How would you like a professor of management and innovation at the International Institute for Management Development, Howard thank you so much for joining us. So first of all, what do you make of China's seemingly sudden crackdown on its own tech giants that it worked for so many years to build up? And protect I mean, the big phenomenon here is all of a sudden we start to see Chinese regulator begins to clam down all these tax giant. Historically, people seemed the best national champion. They pioneered new business model They have great technologies is really pried off the country. What we're seeing now is regulated, wakes up all of a sudden and discover these tax China becoming so big. They are creating this systemic risk to the financial sector or to the industry environment in general that they begins to put up regulation trying to rein in the power. Just like anything in China development in terms of speed and attitude is enormous. And we're seeing this wave of regulation coming in now. So how does the Chinese government then walk this type rope or manage this balancing act whereby they're cracking down on their own companies, but wanting to show and tell the world that China is still a good place to do business? This is really fascinating, right? Because in a way China is facing this transition from the sort of traditional manufacturing economy into much more knowledge base, our Indy research development intensive economy. This is the ambition and in many ways, these tech giant does represent that dream. But fundamentally, if you're looking at these Tak company, what is Ali Baba or tens and JD dot com and companies that are hot on this stack? What you're seeing is in terms of the international revenue. They're tiny In comparison to domestic revenue. So here's the thing what we have seen in the past, not just China, but Japan and South Korea. These country when they try to develop the industrial base. They encourage these company to go abroad. And somehow you judge by that, yeah, stick these tech Jinan. China, in fact, have failed, disappoint the Beijing government in terms off revenue abroad international businesses So I think there is this combination between disappointment as well. A systemic risk that these regulator on now given a green light to step up and rain be rainy in this tech companies. Now we have to talk about what's happening with Jack Ma, who hasn't appeared in public for the last several weeks. He didn't appear at the taping off his own television show. He's basically vanished from public view since the cancelation of ants, type O, which coincided with with a speech he gave being quite critical of the lack of economic reform. In China. What do you make? Off this, given that he is perhaps the most famous entrepreneur and tech figure coming out of China. We're in China. We have this old saying proverb they're friends of mine would tell me when the tree getting too big. The tracks win and certainly Jack, marred by his behavior is definitely an outline His extremely charismatic and employees really take on his mission in driving growth for the organization. And I think what it will happen. Time will tell whether this incident is going to send a deep seismic shift in terms of the intra preneurs real activity in China, but no doubt what this is a signaling that in China, there's nothing is too big to fail. And if organization their agenda are not aligned with national agenda. Than their competitors, Vantage would get eroded right away. I mean, the sort of phenomena we seeing there's a mirror in Europe or in us as well. That regulator stepping up before sure. In China, the development we see off a magnitude we don't see elsewhere. It is absolutely fascinating. What do you think the impact of all of this will be on financial itself? It was supposed to be one of the biggest. I pose ever will that I p o happen. Will this impact The future of Ali Baba. Yes. So I am the business school. We always tracked a development all financial sector. How does intact disruption is going to change the way People bank and how this business is work. And if you take on the Ali Baba playbook at the very core is this idea of taking data advantage? The fact that they can expense so quickly across all these things related sector is not just because they're bankers, arm or small. That others in everything is on Alberta. But everything is done. Based on data. They have your purchase behavior. They have your online search behavior or these aggregate to give them a competitive, parallel, unparalleled advantage. What we're seeing is society in China Regulators are not happy about that advantage in the U. S or Western Europe is about the likeability off that this tack company sinking so low people having adverse reaction. So I think the implication fulfilling tap is for innovation to take whole going forward. Not only that innovation needs to be great. The product needs to be great. But the organization in Western Europe would be the likability is high in China. Perhaps it needs to be completely comply with the regulator in terms of rules of the game. So I think executive needs to think broader in terms of the regulator regime as well. That is as the reputation off their organization. So what happens to China US relations after Joe Biden takes office given that Clearly the delisting of some of these Chinese companies in the United States is tied to an executive order from President Trump. Does Biden continue? This'll more aggressive policy or does he pull back? Well, I think that you whether it's tak war, economic rivalries simply going to get intensified going forward because if you take thinking about his tack companies in China if they were to survive, the only way is to grow internationally to bring in foreign moneys back to China as a way to demonstrate their value add to the government if that's the case, which means that the international competition What is in the Middle East, Southeast Asia or Latin America. These would be the frontier market. U. S firms as well..

"Try science fiction title if you normally read science fiction than try thriller and so on. Just you know try new genre and then try something new after that. I love starting simple like that Or you can send more sweeping goal. So if you're already reading outside a genre or an author that you, you really love then. Maybe a goal like reading across geographical boundaries books that are set in Europe, the Middle East Southeast Asia. You know that does that does more than just introduce you to different characters. You also get cultures, races, religions. You see how different nationalities live their lives and raise their kids their view on vacation. Then you can compare this experience with your own as well as other anglophone. An anglophone is a new word for me. It means it's as it's written in. English. but other anglophone books that you've read historically English books are very narrowly focused and so two to read something that is set. and. Another geographical area or by another ethnicity of the author of different ethnicity is wonderful. Wonderful idea. And there are few ground rules to keep in mind it's okay. Not Immediately.

So you know what the hot books are and one thing that I didn't realize. I found this out when I was doing research for this episode, many authors on their website or an interviews they've given. Tale of authors who have inspired them. And that never really occurred to me, and of course, you ask a famous guitar player who inspired you to play this wonderful Blues Guitar. But for some reason, I didn't cross that Bridge to authors, and of course, they had authors that inspired them. So last but not least, a good book club with a diverse membership is always a great way to read books you would not normally choose. Buzzer, great tips on how discover. New titles, new books and when you've I cut the. That the title out here for this episode, I was like, well, I, I never read anything out of my comfort zone really, and then I had to go back and look and actually had the one of the first ones I've read and it was kind of a young reader book, but it was the hate us gifts. By Angie Thomas and it was really good in it was about a sixteen year old star Carter. Who Kinda lived in two worlds, her uncle is. A police officer and she goes to a prep school. So she's black girl who's in almost an all white school. She doesn't fit in there, but she's not really fitting in with her group back in her neighborhood. But this is also on the Mamie cry because within the I think the first or second chapter something awful happens there was a fatal shooting of her best friend Colle- at the hands of a police officer while no, my goodness and it wished it's an amazing story of how Shima's. Through that whole situation with family friends police who she is as a black young black woman. Connie living in two worlds, and that was really interesting. The other book that I just read for black history month. This year was the nickel boys by Colson Whitehead. That is just an outright amazing story. Is based on a true story of A. Quotation 's a young man school in Florida where judges would send children there instead to the prisons it was mainly all black and then there was white too so. It was still segregated and just wet. Had these children suffered at the school and is based on true store. There is a school there in Tallahassee which they did. You know find bones graveyard is just a really sad story but is really interesting. It's just a lovely story about this. Friendship, in how these young men boys continued to live their life after the school and then there's a surprise ending at the end. I'm not given that away. Will. You know our Olsen Whitehead is is hot hot hot right now especially after winning the Pulitzer two years in a row for him he this was a really really good book. It's IT'S A to be read book you.

"Radio days. A huge Bible get yet in this involved some changes in the rural areas. They will find that you get a church with 200 members and you want to find 1/5 and With one Bible. So you can say that changes the ratio is 1 to 200. Wow. The ratio is 1 to 200 of how many Bibles to Christians are in some of these churches. That is a young pastor that the Bible League has been working with for sometime. Only small eyes. His name Michael Woolworth's Back with us. We are discussing the need for Bibles across the globe, and when I say across the globe, I am not kidding. Africa, India, the Middle East, Southeast Asia Asia Proper China Latin America, Central America, South America, India that you there are Bibles that are needed everywhere and Michael they. The reason that there needed is for a variety of reasons. It's not the same in any two countries. Could be a combination of problems that keep him out of one and maybe only one problem or or one economic condition in another place, But the one thing they have all in common is that Bibles are too expensive and too hard to get. And in many cases, just flat out outlawed. Yeah, You know, that's the case in Africa, where you see the influence of Islam of the influence of animism all the spiritually darkness. That's they're often the government says No, We're not going to allow the Bible in here. But again, we're doing Kingdom business Do they don't undersell the value of what's happening today. We're providing for these believers what they cannot do for themselves, and that's put Bibles into their hearts into their hands. And that's why this is so important today. Yeah. Can I take your listeners to Ah to Africa? Lee's Ooh Yeah, Let's let's go to Tanzania, Africa. It was Super Bowl week when I visited this part of the world Not too long ago. Where is a Tanzanian? Not far from a Mount Kilimanjaro? The sarin Getty. It's absolutely beautiful. Everything you've seen. In National Geographic about Tanzania and, well, it's it's there. I can tell you it's absolutely beautiful, but the village we were in was very, very remote. It took us hours to go through the Rift Valley to finally reach this remote village. We were there for a very specific person of purpose Government that was to give Bibles to about 200 new believers in a very small church again, a very remote village. And it was 110 degree Day course. It always is in Africa, Right? Remember, it was Super Bowl Week course. Here. We're celebrating. One thing's the Patriots and the Eagles that year. Perhaps, I don't know. I could tell you what I remember about this story. I'll never forget. So every name was read. Write. Some of these people had never seen their names on certificates. They come through Project Philip, the Bible study that we use all over the world in name by name. We're We're talking about people that had come to faith in Christ. They'd left animism. They've left Islam all the ISMs that the plague that part of the world And we came to a woman by the name of Mabel..

"To staying in northern Syria yeah I think it and and it's important that the president apparently has decided that we will maintain some questions in eastern Syria around the oil fields so that does several things one prevent ISIS or sod from getting the oil revenue but it it also gives us a platform from which to continue to watch and pressure isis so one of the things that happened in the last seventeen eighteen years is ISIS in particular even more than al Qaida has spread a network around the world and we have a handful of special operation folks also around the world who are watching them keeping track and can take action when necessary but we again and we can only do that with partners whether it's Africa Middle East Southeast Asia we will our partners to help gather that information and when necessary act on it I'm one of the other things we learned about ISIS in the last couple weeks is according to a gym Jeffrey the special envoy to Syria and for the global coalition to defeat ISIS there have been a number of ISIS terrorists that have gotten free since the president's announcement of the U. with all US forces from northern Syria so this is obviously a great achievement in the fight against ISIS all my Daddy was the the founder of the spiritual leader at all of our vices but they're also this this new threat of a hundred plus ISIS terrorists out there senator Bob Menendez who is the ranking Democrat on the Senate foreign relations committee he says that the release of these ISIS prisoners is a clear and present danger to the United States you agree well we need to have more information about exactly who they were so there are top rated very dangerous isis operatives who had been prisoner there also lower wrong kind of soldiers they are much less dangerous but again it goes back to the point it was important not to pull all the way out of Syria having some presence there gives us a greater ability through intelligence gathering to keep track of these individuals in other ISIS operatives because as as you pointed out it's a big deal to get Baghdadi and I think the president deserves a lot of credit for for authorizing the the rate if it had gone bad he would have gotten the blind but that does not mean hi sis is defeated any more than getting bin laden and al Qaeda was defeated we've taken something valuable way but you still have these networks you still have people who will take the place of anybody we remove and they continue to work to to attack America one other point there was a lot of comment about we wouldn't expect like Betty to be in it live because we thought al Qaeda was there right what happens in some places is terrorist organizations that you think are rivals can actually cooperate in certain situations that would happen here or yeah well in in that area there were signs of al Qaeda and ISIS cooperating in a way we have not seen before I did I just mention that to highlight the danger to terrorism we're not done with this threat just returned from Afghanistan a week ago there are dangerous terrorists still in Afghanistan plotting against our homeland cleaning ISIS including our system especially ice so we've got to keep the pressure on this is a big deal but we got to keep the pressure on and lastly what you make of the president's we painted a very vivid picture of al Baghdadi dying a very cowardly death which I don't doubt for one second a lot of these terror our cal arts but it was it was very vivid he talked about him crying and whining detonating suicide vest killing his own three children while he did so again I don't I don't doubt that that's that's how he died or that he killed his own children these people are monsters but I wonder if there's any part of you that's a little concerned because now there is of course a question about what is ISIS going to do in response to this move in response to perhaps the president's president's rhetoric does that concern you at all in terms of galvanizing or motivating ISIS terrorists it probably makes me a little uncomfortable to your present talking that way but again Baghdadi it was the inspirational leader for ISIS network across the world from Africa Southeast Asia if you can take a little of the glamour off him if you can make him less inspirational then there's a value to that for all of these folks who were on their computers or in these networks looking to attack but you're exactly right ISIS will seek to do something to show we're still here we're we're still relevant so the United States is going to be tested in the days to come in as you know one of my big concerns is we've only funded the military for about twenty five more days we don't do the dysfunction in Washington yeah it is translating and to doing real damage to our military who we depend on and are so proud of for things like this and the men women at the tip of the spear they deserve better that comes from my father thank you so much for your time we really appreciate your being here we have much more on our breaking news coverage we're gonna take a quick break we'll be right back in instead of the union it continues what about the state of the union and the exam.
