"The Eric Erickson Show. That would be me. I'm glad to have you with me. The phone number is 877. 97 Eric 87797374 to 5. If you would like to be a part of the program, I have put it off until now. I have avoided Talking about it as best I could. But friends We need to talk about Afghanistan. I know everyone's ready to move on. Well, you know, the media is ready to move on. The media is ready to move on. It's just it's It's striking to me how rapidly the press chose to move on. When Joe Biden's polling began to crater because of Afghanistan. But just because the media doesn't cover, it doesn't mean it's not a problem. Just because the media doesn't cover. It doesn't mean there isn't a situation that necessitates our attention. And to the extent the media is avoiding covering it, they're avoiding covering it because it makes Job. I look bad. The Taliban. Have announced a government It will adhere to Sharia law. The radical interpretation of Islam. And At the same time. They are announcing they will form their new government. On September 11th. They are now flying. The Taliban flag at the American Embassy that we abandoned. And the American State Department. Listen to this. This is from the hill. Publication. I can't stand But the story is accurate. I don't like the hill because they lie on their social media to for Clickbait. They they make wild claims in their tweets, and when you click through the story, it turns out they misrepresent what actually happened, But I am reading the actual story, not the tweet. The State Department on Tuesday expressed concerns over the makeup of the new interim Afghan government announced by the Taliban. Including the lack of female leaders. And the past actions of some of those appointed to top posts. A State Department spokesperson said in a statement shared with the hill that although the Taliban has presented this as a caretaker Cabinet, the U. S will judge the Taliban bites actions, not words. We have made clear our expectations of the Afghan people deserve an inclusive government, the spokesperson added. The statement went on to note that the list of names announced by the Taliban earlier Tuesday consists exclusively of individuals who are members of the Taliban or their close associates and no women. Did you really think? They were going to do otherwise. Among the leaders announced. Is acting Interior Minister Chara, Junin Hakani. Who is currently wanted by the FBI in connection with the 2000 and eight attack on a Kabul hotel that left six people, including a U. S citizen dead. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid head move ahead, said the government would be led by Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akande, with group co founder Abdul Ghani Baradar, serving as the interim government deputy leader. Number of the people listed in the government ranks are people we let go from Afghan or from Gitmo as a trade for Bowe, Bergdahl And now our secretary of defense has the audacity to say this Well, there's no question that it will be More difficult to identify and engage threats that emanate from the region. But we're committed to making sure that That Threats are not allowed to develop. There isn't a scrap of earth. That we can't reach out and touch when we need to. We've demonstrated that time and time again and again. Our job is to make sure we stay vigilant and continue to develop capabilities. There is no question it will be harder to identify threats in Afghanistan, says the defense secretary. What is the secretary of state say without personnel on the ground? We can't verify the accuracy of manifests the identities of passengers, flight plans or radiation security protocols, So this is a challenge. So we we, We are having a hard time without personnel on the ground being able to unify people. Oh, wait, it gets better. Here's a little more from Anthony Blinken, Secretary of State. As of now, the Taliban are not permitting the charter flights to depart. They claim that some of the passengers do not have the required documentation. While there are limits to what we can do without personnel on the ground without an airport with normal security procedures in place. We are working to do everything in our power to support those flights and to get them off the ground. What did you think was going to happen? You imbecile source. What did you think was going to happen? You got out of Afghanistan. When everyone said you shouldn't do it, Mr. President. You did it anyway. You got out you left Americans behind after you said you would not leave Americans behind. What did you think was going to happen? You absolute embassy source. Idiots. What is this? The Taliban are not permitting charter flights departed without personnel on the ground. We're having a hard time getting people are what did you think would happen, you morons. I'm trying to avoid saying bad words. You can't gather intelligence. You can't rescue Americans. The Taliban are flying their flag over the American Embassy. They're going to form their new government. On September 11th. Mm. What do you what happened on September 11th that makes that day so significant to the Taliban wonder what happened that day. Oh, that's right. That's the day. Joe Biden said He wanted to get out of Afghanistan. Of course, they would set up their government on the day. Joe Biden said he wanted all Americans out of Afghanistan. Of course, that's what September 11th years. No other symbolism there. I'm sure I was talking to a prominent Biden supporter last night. Complaining that you know she supports supports the Biden administration. She supported him. Very vocally fund.

"It was. It was generally assumed for many days that the head of the new cabinet would be Mullah Baradar with the deputy political leader of the Taliban. The man who has played a leading role in the political negotiations. He arrived to Kabul to take part of the to delete the talks about forming the government. But out of nowhere came the man couldn't founding member of the Taliban, who is regarded as a compromise candidate. Behind the scenes, then were their efforts as we waited for the Cabinet to resolve the rivalries around. Around people like Sirajuddin Haqqani, the minister of Interior Resume list, part of the so called Haqqani Network, blamed for some of the worst atrocities of of civilians and Mullah Baradar. Mullah Yaqoub, the eldest son of the two first Taliban, emir. Mullah Omar. So it seems as though that there was an effort to try to put aside at least to do to put aside for a while. These rivalries in this so called caretaker interim government and to have a compromised character and all elderly man from Canada. Kandahar, who's on the U. N terrorism list will lead it for some time. Was the Pakistani ISI chief involved in this. He arrived in Kabul days ago, saying to journalists. I'm only coming to see the Pakistani ambassador, but he's clearly been involved behind the scenes. The Qataris have been involved behind the scenes. So lo and behold, the Taliban have a leadership. They can represent them at the Geneva Conference on aid on Monday and can say to Afghans well, We have a government for now. It will be changed. Perhaps in the future. These do set joining us live from Kabul. Thanks. Before I came on air. We spoke to Fawzia Koofi First woman, deputy speaker of the Afghan Parliament. She's had to leave Afghanistan in the wake of the government falling her reaction on the makeup of the new interim government. Well, I think, um the Taliban were claiming to establish inclusive government because and only an inclusive government is a respond to the diversity of Afghanistan society Nowadays, however, I think their definition of inclusivity is inclusion of their different factions within Taliban. So you see that they have divided the power without you know, looking at the society and their needs within their own. In our circles so among her Panis and Mullah Omar and my brother, the key positions are divided, which, clearly there is a lack of from religious minorities, Inclusion and the woman which is in contradiction to what the people of Afghanistan demand this. It's a transformed nation. They want to be part of the decision. I do not think that any political establishment will survive without considering the society and it's um you know diversity as you say no women and no real reflection of the ethnic diversity of Afghanistan, 30 Pashtun in the in the Cabinet and two Tajiks and one Uzbek. I just wonder, though, what you make specifically about The individuals who we are seeing at the heart of this government. So the Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani, the head of the Haqqani network, What do you make of him? Months of the almost everyone who is in the cabinet. There are people who are in the sanction lists of the U. N. And there are people accused of, you know, um atrocities and society bombing planning suicide bombing in Afghanistan, killing a lot of civilians. Now, of course, in a transition where we move from war to peace. It's for the people of Afghanistan to pardon and we have been traveling into the past 23 years to bring us to a situation where people will have that say the victims of war will have a safe to pardon, But we know that it's now the Taliban, who have announced amnesty instead of the Actually, it's the people that should agree to an amnesty or not. I think from what I know from the social fabric of Afghanistan and from my experience of being in Afghanistan, and, uh throughout my life, but especially, you know, politically engaged in in the past 20 years, I think, if any government is not responsive to the social public of Afghanistan At no religious representation. They will face serious consequences. And we know that in the past 23 days or sell the Taliban actually took over militarily, Kabul and other cities. There have been a lot of protests, especially by one putting their rights at risk. So ah, this woman who have these people who have no knowledge and Experience of government and certainly have not changed to meet the need of the current Afghanistan. For them. It will be extremely challenging to rule. Um, I don't know. Who are they going to represent in the government? It indeed the Cabinet is led by Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, who is on a UN blacklist. And and her, uh Siraj. Haqqani is, of course, wanted by the by the FBI. When you say That you don't know who they represent and how they are going to govern. Do you envisage a continuation of demonstrations with whatever the consequences might be? We've seen We've seen many people yesterday in Kabul treated really very badly by the Taliban forces. What do you envisage in the in the short term, So I think this civil protests and resistance against the oppression Will continue and and my understanding is that it will actually become stronger like today in Badakshan woman actually protested. They were, of course, some dismantled through violence. I think this will continue, Although much of it depends on how the Taliban will treat these protesters. I know that they are very violent and probably they won't show so much violence now because they're in seek of international legitimacy. They want to be the co organized but with the current Cabinet members now the question is, how will the world look at the future of relation its relationship with Afghanistan? I know that my request would be not to give blank checks to such a cabinet or to such a government where people have no space woman 55% of the population, religious minorities, which are part of our beauties of Afghanistan or not included. My request would be not to give blood checks. When you talk about the response by the international community and asking for people to pause before the Recognize the government or give them a blank check as you as you say, What do you make of the U. S State Department and their their caution their dismay. They say they're concerned by the affiliations and track records of some of the individuals that's must strike many people as very guarded. Given that Mr Haqqani is wanted by the FBI. Absolutely. I think a lot of people are actually in Afghanistan very, very disappointed with What the world actually and the superpowers, you know, kind of handle the whole thing. And, um I think it will be a surprise if we see a softer diplomatic approach from the U. S. People will completely lose trust. If that is the case, My hope is that we asked people of Afghanistan or in desperate need of help. Millions of people do not have job and income. Especially the families who actually dependent on women's income. A lot of women were breadwinners of the family. They do not even now have the ability to function as in the form of small business or whatever source of income, so the people need desperately humanitarian aid through international organizations. Because I feel I feel for my people. I have been part of all the ups and downs. My heart actually bleeds. I mean, I'm sorry for becoming so emotional, but in every moment of my contact with Afghanistan, I don't hear a positive news and and it feels as somebody who has been in those situations. You know how it feels. Last year, kufi there we will return to Afghanistan and here in American perspective on events in Kabul later in the program, you're listening to the BBC World Service. I'm Razia Iqbal. This is news hour. Mm hmm..

"As the Islamic emirate of Afghanistan. The new cabinet entirely male. Is made up of senior Taliban figures, some of whom are notorious for attacks on US forces over the last two decades. It will be led by Mullah Mohammad Hassan Hearkened, one of the movement's founders, who is on a U. N blacklist. Let's get an insight with Dr Habiba Sarabi, former minister of women's affairs in Afghanistan and now deputy chair of the High Peace Council. Joining us from Doha. Welcome to news day. Hello. Good morning. It's good. It's good to have you on the program. I mean, a very different makeup of government. We now as we were hearing earlier on the program, 33 colors. And and we now have no women involved at the highest level of government. How does that leave you feeling? Oh, it is something that, uh it was not unexpected from our side. It's not, uh, strange, because we we talk and we, uh, we believe that this is their mentality. This is their mentality, and the time that we were negotiating with them, it showed that, uh, their mentality is different. They don't believe to women's right. They don't believe to human rights. So that's right. They didn't bring any women and the anyone from minority so they they have to understand that they All the government government cannot run by or the the country cannot run by almallah and shift because a country needs expertise in professional that they have to Uh, to do the job. Of course, they are saying that that, uh, bureaucratic government was corrupt. Corruption is something and and this running by Almallah. There's something different. Unfortunately, this is their mentality. Well, we've done a whole 1 80 here, Haven't we? Because you were the first Afghan women to become a governor of any province in the country under former President Hamid Karzai and even though it wasn't a great surprise, has it surprised you to see women protesting in the way that they have been over the last couple of days, risking their lives, But it is women in the main Who were taking to the streets. Yes, This is again shouldn't be a big surprise because women are progressed a lot. Women know what to do. The Taliban should understand that we are not the same or women are not the same like nineties. So women want to have the advance and they don't want our oppressive so Taliban want to places them but they don't want this is a good reaction. The reaction of people is from the from the bottom. They want the justice. They want to have job job they want to go to. I mean their daughter want to go to school. Some of them They were very young women. They want to continue the life now. We were just like I did. City and inside cover. What is your message, then to the international community, who say They have changed. We believe what they are saying. Clearly, women in the country taken entirely different view. Um is it naive to think there could be The Taliban mark to that will be different from Taliban mark one. Oh, To be honest, it's they're really, uh, I don't have anything for international community to say, because they have done. Uh I mean, they are cheated. Uh, they were cheating guests. So it's a shame for us today. They they are criticizing that the car cabinet is not a kind of inclusive. They didn't know that when they wanted days list set together with Matlock brother and and signed the Agreement. They didn't know about that. They knew they knew. But I don't know that why? It was a kind of playing game with Afghanistan and also with uh with all the women and and people of Afghanistan. So unfortunately they they fulfill their agenda and went out. This is good we did. We don't didn't want that. The U. S and NATO can. You could stay in Afghanistan forever. But at least they could allow that political settlement could be happening After that. They could go, uh to their countries, so My message for all the globe. Not for the for the state for the people of the the world. Is that Afghanistan? A part of this, uh, a part of the globe. And they have to understand our sisters, uh, to the other world should understand that there are some one There are some some woman that they are under their suffering, and they are under oppressive. Thank you for joining us. Dr. Habiba Sarabi, former Minister of Women affairs in the Afghanistan government, and now deputy chair of the High Peace Council. She was talking to us from Doha Doha are, of course, one of the places where U. S Secretary of state Antony Blinken has been on tour of allies after the U. S pullout. He's in Germany. He is expected to convene a virtual meeting later today with more than 20 nations, who have a stake in relocating and settling Afghans. It's one task currently nearly impossible getting people out, but once they're out, where do they go? Jason Rich wine is a resident scholar at the Center for Immigration Studies in the US What Blinken and others are going to try to figure out is which countries will take them, and probably the United States will be taking the vast majority of them. And then the vetting happens. Where, because this has all been done too fast. In order to vet the arrivals in terms of placing them and so on. I suppose until they arrive in America, That's exactly right. It's going to be in the U. S. And the problem is that once the refugees arrive in the U. S. The chances that any will actually leave are very low. So what will happen is they will will attempt to police each refugee into a particular immigration category that they would qualify for whether it be an actual refugee. What we call a special immigrant visa in the US or a a priority immigrant who can get special parole into the United States. But at the end of the day, pretty much. Anyone who is going to get to U. S soil is going to be allowed to state because there just isn't the political will I believe to actually deport people back once they arrive in the United States, right? Even if they don't meet the criteria that are being applied, they will likely just be released and there will Probably have status similar to many other unauthorized aliens in the United States. Is there any point of comparison that one can make with, for example, the enormous effort which was eventually made To airlift and assimilate and and place Vietnamese Vietnamese boat people as they were called Vietnamese refugees or other recent conflicts, the arrival of Somali community and so on. Are there models that they can use. I mean, if we're going to describe this comparatively Do We know what this process is going to be like? Do they have any models to base it on? There is something unique about this. It's unique in that you had so many people arriving, getting on the plains in a situation where it's just impossible to really figure out who these people were and what was going on. The timeline was still very much compressed. And as I said, now, they're being flown to the military base is going to arrive in the United States. And I'm not sure we've seen something on the scale in recent history. There is certain databases. People can be checked against the idea that that's comprehensive is just not at all true. And if you look at the survey data, it's difficult to find two groups of people who have more different ideas, then Afghans and and Western Europeans and Americans 85% of Afghans want to stone adulterers, according to a recent Pew survey. And it's unfortunate that The NATO hasn't considered, uh, resettling refugees in the area. This would of course, take a lot of planning and diplomacy and funding..

"Resistance against the Taliban. We are not afraid of death. We are the young generation and will bring the body of freedom. Our voices will make history. Well, the Taliban broke up the demonstration involving hundreds of people by firing into the air. The protests were the biggest show defiance in the last few weeks, many at the rally avoided criticizing the Taliban directly. And aimed their anger at Pakistan, which they accused of supporting the Islamist group as you just heard, especially after the apparent help of Islamabad's military to fight the Afghan resistance forces recently in pan cheer, while Z. Zan Sala Udin is a senior research fellow at the Center for Research and Security Studies, who is currently in Islamabad welcome Two news day. Clearly, a lot of people at the demonstrations yesterday are concerned and point the finger of blame at Pakistan. Are they right? Thank you clear and thank you for having me on the program. Yes, of course. Frustrations are at an all time high. Despite their many promises of inclusivity and representative government, the recent news out of Kabul paints a very different picture. The Cabinet is composed entirely of the top brass of the Taliban. All males, and it is clearly not ethnically diverse. There have been protests in the past few weeks as the BBC itself has been reporting. By women demanding equal rights as promised by the Taliban. But actual implementation of these promises has been like generally speaking, I I'd say that you know the Taliban are not good for women. They're not good for minorities. They're not good for Afghanistan. The events of the last few weeks, especially in the ongoing fighting in bunch here have also warned than any semblance of patients Afghan may have had box on, of course, is a very easy scape good because of its proximity and its its history. But many forget that Pakistan has been at the forefront of the humanitarian effort in Afghanistan has built roads University. I'm just going to say that we heard about protester they're saying Pakistan. Gave the Taliban its ideology. We have a country in Afghanistan now that that has been free, you know, for women to come on for minorities to come on in the last 20 years. So is she right? Has the Pakistani influence On the Taliban bin bin that direct Yeah. The problem here is that we often forget the 42 years of history that go into this. There's a historical precedent here. Pakistan has been involved in Afghanistan and has been involved since the Soviet invasion in 1979. And of course, during the war on terror when the world was told that you're either with us or against us, Um and therefore there's a narrative that has been built over the course of time at the very individuals that the U. S. Signed a peace deal with back in February. That the U. S left behind as in charge of Kabul and the same individuals that were put in place after the the departure of the Soviets back in the late eighties, Um, are now and are now in charge, but Pakistan somehow is responsible for what has happened to them. The other thing that people normally forget is that there's an estimated 3.5 million Afghan refugees that still live in Pakistan. And let's not forget that Pakistan has its own version of the Taliban in the form of the G D P, a group that has killed tens of thousands of Pakistanis. As recently as just three days ago. So while I don't necessarily agree that Pakistan is entirely responsible for it, history and proximity of Pakistan do make it an easy scapegoat. What needs to happen, then going forward. I mean, clearly there's lots of women on the streets and they are protesting and there's a debate going on in Qatar. At the moment, the international community does Pakistan need to be involved. In all of this, then given that people inside Afghanistan now and and the involvement with the Pakistani forces as well in the fight against the resistance, they're saying Well, Pakistan is as as involved with the Taliban Now we need to get Pakistan involved. In these talks. Absolutely, And that's precisely the point here. Um, As I said earlier, the Taliban's promises have not been kept its a regime that is not necessarily good for women. It's not good for minorities. It seems that they're not going to move forward with the idea of inclusively that we had box son's involvement needs very much to be limited to the idea of putting pressure as a regional bloc. Which may include China, which may include Russia, Iran, the cars countries to try and pressurize the Taliban to create a system of governance that protects minorities that celebrates women and that serves the people. But it's also worth mentioning here that a big component of a lot of this news that is turning out of Kabul has. I'm sorry. I didn't say anything but listen, we're going to have to leave it there. Thank you so much for joining us. These and Saleh Houdin, senior research fellow at the Center for Research and Security Studies, is currently in Islamabad. We will be speaking later in the program to Doctor Habiba Sarabi, former minister of women affairs in the previous Afghanistan, the government and let's get more on the new Taliban government, which been announced the U.

But it's not just there has to be also some level of ideological diversity, and that's certainly lacking and I don't think that Today's Afghanistan's surely will not see themselves reflected in this government.

"Afghans. But behind them is Pakistan. They gave them This ideology. We demand freedom of speech, democracy, national resistance against the Taliban. We are not afraid of death. We have the young generation and will bring the butt of freedom. Our voices will make history. Well, the Taliban broke up the demonstration involving hundreds of people by firing into the air. The protests were the biggest show defiance in the last few weeks, many at the rally avoided criticizing the Taliban directly. And aimed their anger at Pakistan, which they accused of supporting the Islamist group as you just heard, especially after the apparent help of Islamabad's military to fight the Afghan resistance forces recently in pan cheer, while Z Zan Saladin is a senior research fellow at the Center for Research and Security Studies, who is currently in Islamabad. Welcome to Newsday's. Clearly A lot of people at the demonstrations yesterday are concerned and point the finger of blame at Pakistan, are they right? Thank you, Clara. And thank you for having me on the program. Yes, of course. Frustrations are at an all time high. Despite their many promises of inclusivity and representative government. The recent news out of Kabul paints a very different picture. The Cabinet is composed entirely of the top brass of the Taliban. All males, and it is clearly not ethnically diverse. There have been protests in the past few weeks as the BBC itself has been reporting by women demanding equal rights has promised by the Taliban. But actual implementation of these promises has been like generally speaking, I'd say, but you know the Taliban are not good for women. They're not good for minorities. They're not good for Afghanistan. The events of the last few weeks, especially in the ongoing fighting in Banshee here have also warned than any semblance of patients. Afghan may have had box and, of course, is a very easy scape good because of its proximity and its its history. But many forget that Pakistan has been at the forefront of the humanitarian effort in Afghanistan. Both Rhodes University Yeah, I'm just going to say that we heard about protester they're saying Pakistan Gave the Taliban ideology We have a country in Afghanistan. Now that that has been free, you know, for women to come on for minorities to come on in the last 20 years. So is she right? Has the Pakistani influence On the Taliban bin bin that direct The problem here is that we often forget the 42 years of history that go into this. There's a historical precedent here. Pakistan has been involved in Afghanistan and has been involved since the Soviet invasion in 1979. And of course, during the war on terror when the world was told that you're either with us or against us, Um and therefore there's a narrative that has been built over the course of time that the very individuals that the U. S signed a peace deal with back in February. That the U. S left behind as in charge of Kabul and the same individuals that were put in place after the the departure of the Soviets back in the late eighties. Um, are now uh, are now in charge, but Pakistan somehow is responsible for what has happened to them. The other thing that people normally forget is that there's an estimated 3.5 million Afghan refugees that still live in Pakistan. And let's not forget that Pakistan has its own version of the Taliban in the form of the Tpp, a group that has killed tens of thousands of Pakistanis. As recently as just three days ago. So while I don't necessarily agree that Pakistan is entirely responsible for it, history and proximity of Pakistan do make it an easy scapegoat. What needs to happen, then going forward. I mean, clearly there's lots of women on the streets and they are protesting and there's a debate going on in Qatar. At the moment, the international community does Pakistan need to be involved. In all of this, then given that people inside Afghanistan now and and the involvement with the Pakistani forces as well in the fight against the resistance, they're saying Well, Pakistan is as as involved with the Taliban Now we need to get Pakistan involved. In these talks. Absolutely, And that's precisely the point here. Um uh, As I said earlier, the Taliban's promises have not been kept its a regime that is not necessarily good for women. It's not good for minorities. It seems that they're not going to move forward with the idea of inclusively that we had. Pakistan's involvement needs very much to be limited to the idea of putting pressure as a regional bloc. Which may include China, which may include Russia, Iran, the cars countries to try and pressurize the Taliban to create a system of governance that protects minorities that celebrates women and that serves the people. And it's also worth mentioning here that a big component of a lot of this news that is turning out of Kabul has. I'm sorry. I didn't say anything but listen, we're going to have to leave it there. Thank you so much for joining us. These and Sala Udin, senior research fellow at the Center for Research and Security Studies, is currently in Islamabad. We will be speaking later in the program to Dr Habiba Sarabi, former Minister of Women affairs in the previous Afghanistan, the government and let's get more on the new Taliban government, which been announced the U.

"And Isa open and be able to analyze and take a very quick decisions. Also, how politics around the pandemic have stigmatized Covid 19 deaths in certain communities. I've heard people were there just like I just don't want to have covid listed on the death certificate, and I don't want to hear that Covid had anything to do with my father's death, and first lady Jill Biden heads back to teaching in her classroom today. First, these news headlines. Live from NPR news. I'm Janine Herbst. President Biden is visiting communities in New York City and New Jersey that are recovering from last week's flooding triggered by what was once hurricane Ida. As NPR's Hansi Lo Wang reports, Several people are still missing. At least 50 people are confirmed dead in the area from the storm. President Biden's motorcade passed by heaps of garbage bags and damaged furniture thrown out by flooded residents in North central New Jersey while meeting with local officials, Biden said the destruction caused by what was once hurricane Ida is another sign of the climate crisis. We're now living in real time. What the country is going to look like and if we don't do so we can't turn it back very much, but we can prevent it from getting worse. New York City officials say they're tracking a rainstorm that's forecast to reach the city Wednesday night. The mayor says if needed, the city may put in place travel bans and try to evacuate people living in basement apartments. Hansi Lo Wang NPR news and NPR's Mara Liasson has more on how Biden could use the aftermath of the storm to push his infrastructure bill forward. There's a lot of money in that bill to increase hurricane resiliency. There's even more money for climate change projects in the reconciliation bill, the big budget bill, But in terms of the infrastructure bill, it is a bipartisan bill. And there are a lot of Republicans who otherwise would have voted against it. Reflexively are now saying, Hey, there's money in there for my my state like Louisiana.
