"Of niggled and I couldn't figure out what it was until the day I left. And it was that in all those ten days I didn't hear the call to prayer. Anytime you're in the Middle East you've got Istanbul and it's sort of overwhelming, right? You'll never miss it. And it certainly struck me that I hadn't heard it in all that time. I went back the next time I tried to find out why that was. And the reason was that as people sort of became disenchanted with the regime, they kind of, you know, identified that with the cult of prayer and the mullahs and so on. And they complained. And eventually the ministry for religion issued the fact by saying that except in certain very holy sites, like in very center of Tehran and so on, they were not allowed to amplify the cult of prayer. It's so striking because it gives you this idea of how long this disenchantment has been going on. They've managed to secularize society and Iran in a way that isn't true in most other Middle Eastern countries. I suppose one reason why most people in Iran have not risen up despite their own dissatisfaction is that the security forces are so efficient at enforcing these laws. And the regime makes very public the way in which they punish people torture and other forms of brutal punishment. What role does that play in both the ability of the regime to hang on despite discontent? And the unwillingness of people to rise up despite discontent. It plays a huge role. It becomes at a certain point, very, very dangerous to go out and protest. You're likely to be imprisoned. And at the same time, you can't really see how you're going to achieve your goal. So it becomes quite quickly dispiriting. We should really remember that these kinds of regimes, they tend to be able to survive long, long after they've lost popularity and legitimacy. And they can do so for as long as the security forces around them are willing to use violence to suppress. When you say one circumstance under which the government might fall, would be that they make a mistake on a scale so large that many more people rise up. Is that a case of them being able to overwhelm the security forces? Exactly what does it look like to overthrow that government? Well, at a certain point in the security force is just done enough because the crowds are just so large. Each country has its limit will be in a different place, but we haven't seen that reached in Iran yet

"Y C. I'm Alison Stewart are full bio conversation this month is with Peter Bergen, the author of the Rise and Fall of Osama bin Laden, a deeply researched account of how a delusional man became an international terrorist. Who would change the trajectory of US foreign policy and identity. While we are coming up to the 20th anniversary of the 9 11 terrorist attacks. There are several other anniversaries happening this year as well, including the 25th anniversary of bin Laden, official warning declaring war on the United States that happened in August, 1996 Well, a producer at CNN, Peter Bergen traveled to Afghanistan to interview bin Laden. We'll hear about that encounter in a moment. First I began this part of the conversation with a question about how Osama bin Laden found himself to be a man without a country in the early 19 nineties and how that led to his relationship with the Taliban, which sees Jalalabad and Kabul. 25 years ago this month. So in 1994. The Saudis revoked his citizenship. I mean, they'd already Made it into sort of affected the exiled him already. His family at the same time, cut off his money, So he was really kind of homeless and, Yeah, 1994. He was living in Sudan under considerable pressure from countries like Egypt and the United States. He was expelled by the Sudanese. Applies to Afghanistan, which at the time was The Taliban are beginning to take over. He didn't really know how the Taliban would react to him. That may have 96. When he flew to Afghanistan. He flew to eastern Afghanistan to Jalalabad, which was an area that was not controlled by the Taliban as yet, and he was Think there was some trepidation amongst bin Laden and his men and his man. Who had followed him to to Afghanistan about how the Taliban would kind of regard him and it turned out to be they didn't need to worry. The Taliban, you know, met with him, senior minister has said. You know, we we really Admire what you've done. They took him a ticket, and they they they, you know they really embraced him, however. Mullah Omar, the leader of the Taliban, Um Wasn't happy about all these belligerent interviews that bin Laden started giving to CNN, ABC News and others Because the Taliban were looking for international recognition, only three countries had recognize them in the pre 9 11 era. They certainly didn't want to sort of anger of the United States and so months I just hadn't point below. Omar visited bin Laden told him essentially, essentially, Can you just shut up or leave Afghanistan and Bin Laden, Um said, you know, basically made some religious arguments that to another Omar about why it was important for him to keep talking and keep emphasizing the issue of the U. S military presence in Saudi Arabia and Mullah Omar had a kind of ambivalent relationship to bin Laden. He kind of it was irritating to him that bin Laden was conducting effectively his own foreign policy. Mullah Omar started styled himself as the commander of the faithful, which means that in his own mind, he was the commander of all Muslims and bin Laden wasn't really kind of toeing the line. But on the other hand, you know whenever the big crisis came All that Omar would always kind of go along with bin Laden views that That you know, bin Laden was really following kind of proper Islam and And so you know, there was kind of this status quo where I've been long and continue to give these interviews continue to plot against United States. The the Taliban truck. You know that, you know, would meet with him occasionally and to try and tell him to sort of dial it back, and he would just ignore them. And and and there were quite a number of people in the Taliban, who Really? Was sick and tired of bin Laden want to get rid of him. But at the end of the day, Muller Omar was the kind of the key because he was the commander of the faithful and other Omar never really pressured been lobbed to leave. He He just He? He kind of tolerated him and that Mullah Omar was a rather provincial guy. He It was a village mullahs. He never went. He very rarely went to Kabul, the capital city. You would stay in Kandahar in southern Afghanistan. His knowledge of the outside world was really very small. And bin Laden seemed to hold some kind of influence over him. Obviously, this year is the 20th anniversary of bin Laden attacks on the United States. But there are two other anniversaries that are interesting that I did not realize until I read your book. It was 25 years ago in August of 1996, the State Department identified bin Laden as quote one of the most significant financial sponsors of Islamic extremist activities in the world today and the first time the formation of Al Qaeda is mentioned. And it was also 25 years ago in 1996 that bin Laden issued his first public statement that he was quote at war with the United States. Had. Can I add Alison another anniversary, which please? So it's also the 20th anniversary of the assassination of Ackman. Char Massoud, the leader of the anti Taliban Resistance, who was one of the most significant military command of the 20th century was instrumental in the Soviets pulling out of Afghanistan. Fought off. The Taliban was never defeated by the Taliban. Now his son today, Artman Massoud is leading the anti Taliban resistance age 32 to history. It's kind of in a strange way of repeating itself. 20 years later, where You have Ahmed Shah Massoud son Massoud, leading the resistance of the Taliban, which now controls all of Afghanistan, or almost all of it. Um so And Massoud was killed by Al Qaeda two days before 9 11. It was really the curtain raiser for the 9 11 attacks because bin Laden knew that the attacks were coming, and he knew that they would cause a lot of problems for the Taliban..

"What happened on july twenty eighth. Can you guys think of anything. That happened on july twentieth. On july twenty eighth there was a new story that didn't get a lot of coverage kind of glossed over but the details of what happened on july. Twenty eighth are critical to know what just happened in kabul afghanistan. remember we are dealing with the true enemy. Here it's not the fifth century hurting perverts of the taliban it's the sophisticated billion plus solis godless atheistic militaristic anti-american nazi regime. That is the communist chinese party or the chinese communist party on july twenty eighth. Did you know that. China met with the taliban for the wall street journal.

President Trump Was Right to Threaten Revenge Against the Taliban
"Here play. Uh They cut one first. I want you to pay very close attention to this. This is Donald Trump on an interview with Hannity last night explaining exactly the Taliban leadership. What was going to happen when he was negotiating with them? If they attacked the United States, and I want you to listen very closely. Check this out. We had very strong conversation. I told him up front. I said, Look, before we start. Let me just tell you right now. But if anything bad happens to Americans or anybody else, or have you ever come over to our land? We will hit you with a force that no country has ever been hit with before a force so great that you won't even believe it and your village and we know where it is, and I named it. Will be the first one. Mr President. I want to interrupt right there. You said this to who? Yeah. Who did you? You said to to who? To Mullah Baradar. Who is probably the top person. Nobody really knows who that that person is. But I would say that's probably the top person and it seems to be that's the way it's rolling right now. But I had a very strong conversation. I also had a good conversation with him. We talked for a while after that. That was the primary point I was making and he understood it. You hear that? So President Trump when he was in office, was speaking with a member of the Taliban leadership again. You don't have to agree or disagree with that strategy. But it's clear that the other strategy of talking with them and then abandoning the country and just taking their word for it, that they were going to let people escape freely. While they're now beating people in the streets, and there's a horror unfolding. At Karzai airport in Kabul. It's obviously a failure. But President Trump understands full well that revenge is most definitely a

Since taking office he told american troops in the uk that the future of the world would hinge on restoring america's frayed ties with its european allies to the g seven the nato ministerial and then to meet with mr putin to let them know what i want him to know. And every point along the way we're going to make it clear that the united states is back and democracies of the world are standing together to tackle the toughest challenges and the issues that matter most to our future there were committed to lead with strength defending our values and delivery for people on thursday president biden meets with uk. Prime minister boris johnson. They're expected to talk about lifting travel restrictions between the two countries in place to stop the spread of covid nineteen. They're also expected to agree to a new atlantic charter. Updating the historic declaration made by fdr and winston churchill. a new pew research center global survey released. Thursday confirms president biden's assertion that the united states is back in the twelve countries surveyed both this year and last a median of seventy five percent of respondents expressed confidence in biden to quote. Do the right thing regarding world affairs. That's compared with seventeen percent for trump last year. Sixty two percent of respondents now have a favorable view of the united states is thirty. Four percent at the end of trump's presidency. The pew report reads the election of joe. Biden is president has led to a dramatic shift in america's international image. Another report was issued on wednesday. This one from the interior department's inspector general regarding the clearing of protesters from lafayette park on june. First of twenty twenty. Remember that well. This report found that police forced protesters out of the park next to the white house. So a contractor could install anti-scale security fencing not so that then president trump could walk to a nearby church for a stage photo op holding up a bible upside down. Oh by the way. The interior department's inspector general mark green blatt was appointed by the former guy. Donald trump. yeah of course of that. Report was immediately followed by one of trump's non twitter tweet styled statements which began. Thank you to the department of the interior inspector general for completely and totally exonerating the in the clearing lafayette park. Not so fast. Here's c. n. n.'s. Jim acosta. I was in the rose garden that day. When trump gave that speech. And said i'm going to go to this special place talking about the church and you could hear the park police and other federal forces dc police clearing that part. They were violently pummeling. Protesters teargassing protesters remember at the time. The white house was telling us. Oh we didn't use tear tear-gas the dc. Police were using tear-gas The other thing. That is not clear about all of this. Is you know what did the white house team no at this time. According to the inspector general's report they did not speak to senior white house officials. They did not speak to the secret service so the certainly raises more questions. And i have to say you know. When i read through this report it sounded as if this inspector general was auditioning to become the inspector general mar-a-lago because i mean this is almost a whitewash of what occurred on june first. These protesters were largely demonstrating peacefully. And we're violently clear from that park. It was just a huge blow to the first amendment. I think in this country. You can't have protesters pummeled by police officers. When they're trying to make a statement about racial justice in this country former white house counsel don mcgann testified behind closed doors last week before the house. Judiciary committee the transcript of that testimony was released on wednesday and it shed new light on the mola report judiciary committee chair. Jerry nadler said that mr mcgann provided the committee with substantial new evidence including firsthand accounts of trump's increasingly out of control behavior and insight into concerns that the former presidents conduct could expose both trump and mcgann to criminal liability in a statement. Nadler also wrote quote. Mr mcgann also confirmed that president trump lied when he denied the accuracy of the mullahs report and admitted that he was the source for a washington. Post report that confirmed trump's direction to mcgann to remove the special counsel moving on a big priority for us officials right now in the fight against covid. Nineteen is getting people both at home and abroad with that in mind. The biden administration announced plans to donate five hundred million doses of the pfizer vaccine worldwide. At the same time the us vaccination rate is slowing states are reporting that they have johnson and johnson vaccines set to expire before they'll get used and johnson and johnson and federal officials are looking at whether the shelf life can be extended or if those doses can be put to other use about two dozen states have now scaled back their daily tracking of covid nineteen data. Some experts called the move premature given the ongoing public health emergency and the risk of new variants. This was a long time coming. After years of stops and starts the keystone excel pipeline is officially dead the developer. Tc energy announced wednesday. That it is pulling the plug on the controversial project. After the biden administration revoked. Its permit in january. The pipeline which has been a political football for more than ten years would have carried oil from the tar sands of canada down into the us. The news comes as a disappointment for many in the oil and gas industry. But for environmentalists who have long argued the pipeline would worsen the climate crisis. It is a big and long awaited victory but talks between president biden and the republican senators regarding infrastructure collapsed. So a new group of bipartisan house. Members on wednesday unveiled a new one point five trillion dollar infrastructure plan with seven hundred sixty two billion dollars in new spending. It comes from the so-called problem solvers caucus. And they've said they've been in touch with another group of so-called centrist senators who were discussing their own plans but progressive democrat. Say it's time to work on passing an infrastructure package without republican support if necessary. I think it's necessary so yesterday. We told you about the propublica report on the nation's wealthiest paying virtually nothing in federal income tax. While today we turn to public citizen who also released a new report. This one called the price of zero and it shows that at least fifty five. Us corporations avoided paying any corporate income tax in twenty twenty on a combined pretax income of forty point five billion dollars the report notes quote had these companies paid a tax rate of twenty one percent the current federal rate they would've owed the federal government eight point five billion dollars not only did these companies not pay taxes but nearly all also got money back from the government receiving three point. Five billion dollars in tax rebates bringing the total twenty twenty tax giveaway for these fifty five companies to twelve billion dollars. According to data obtained from the center for responsive politics instead of paying taxes the companies invested a combined. Four hundred eight million dollars in lobbying and forty two million in campaign contributions over the past three election cycles. And that's just a bit of what's news for now.

We will look at a series of smaller questions when you think of the problem of america and guns. How actually solvable is because by most best guesses. There's about four hundred million guns that large in the united states. You're not going to get all of them. So with the best will in the world and with all the political capital you might want what kind of impact could realistically be made. Nearly one hundred percent actually and takes is really the political will to has some pretty basic laws.

Most Americans want to break up Big Tech
"Americans may be more divided by politics than ever. It feels that way but it also turns out there's one thing that most republicans and democrats can actually agree on and that is breaking up big tech. That's according to a new poll from vox and data progress. Vox pulled over a thousand voters this january for their thoughts on the big tech companies and recode. Ronnie mullah is you're talking about it. Hey ronnie hey tiny so. Give me the quick skinny on this poll. What did we ask and we find. We asked a lot of questions about people's opinions about big tech companies And turns out most americans tech companies the amount of power they have in the economy is a problem and also think that it would be a good idea to break up these tech companies. You know have facebook spinoff. What's apper or instagram. Make amazon not able to be both a marketplace and a seller on that marketplace. Okay so there are two questions question. One is is big tech too powerful or is it a problem for us economy. Is it a problem. And we've got Fifty nine percent of democrats seventy percent. Republicans think yet and then on the second question about whether we should break up big tax or the solution. We've got fifty five percent. Democrats saying that sixty one percent republicans saying so right and this is just so rare. This day and age to have bipartisan consensus on anything. Yeah it's interesting in this poll. That republicans are more anti-big tack than democrats on both questions. They are Both republicans and democrats are anti-big tech but for kind of different and almost opposing reasons. It has to do with their opinions of about speech. Democrats seem to think that these platforms aren't doing enough and then republicans are thinking that there's too much censorship on these platforms Okay so different reasons. Same solution. Yeah so this is starting to not just be a theoretical construct right. We have google and facebook being sued by the states or the ftc or the justice department. Nothing exist in a vacuum right. There are public opinion pressures. I wonder what this polling means four policy outcomes. I mean not. It's not as if the justice department. The ftc in the states are going to do something just because people wanted but you get more public officials that are elected based on advocating for this type of stuff There is a way in which the politics of this can affect policy outcomes. No right. i think it's just politically popular and this poll shows it. Surani you as a couple other questions to Talk to me about the question. You guys about banning trump on twitter and what democrats and republicans about them. So is one where we're back to normal and democrats and republicans had completely different responses republicans. Think it was a terrible idea that twitter band trump and democrats thought was good idea And obviously That's more normal Super fascinating poll has a lot of implications. This question is not pulled that much right. I mean. I haven't seen anything like this before we did a couple years ago and This is already once lawmakers. Were like looking into these antitrust actions. It's interesting there hasn't been antitrust action against the tech company for you know twenty years since microsoft so this hasn't really been on our minds now. There's five different antitrust actions against facebook and google alone so it's definitely on the public consciousness.

COVID-19 vaccine distribution faces logistical challenges
"Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew mullah my guests today sarah wheaton and dr arthur caplan sarah wheaton chief policy correspondent for politico europe. She joins us from brussels.

The responsibilities and duties and possibilities are in terms of vaccinations and how domestic governments go about organizing them the second part of the show. We'll talk more about the global picture. But sarah i'll start with you not withstanding the united kingdom which is actually proceeding with the vaccinations at a reasonably impressive clip. The non uk european countries. Actually being too slow by half they'd seemed to have got off to a very sluggish. Start indeed and it's causing quite a bit of domestic problems around the block and as well it's also calling into question european union's unity in fact. There's a huge blame. Brussels faction basically saying that the eu was too slow to buy doses compared to the united states and the united kingdom on the other hand. You also see that many countries including germany. Which has been one of the most vocal in criticizing. Brussels is not doing a very good job of getting the doses out that they have. is it. just a question of polaroid if you will if we focus on one specific example you look at a country like the netherlands which would appear to have every imaginable advantage. Where doing something like. This is concerned. It is geographically tiny eddies rich. It is well organized you would think vaccinating. The netherlands would be relatively straightforward. Is these things go and yet one. They have barely started and to the government has picked this moment to resign on mass over. Something else entirely right. I think it's really fascinating if you look at the databases that lay out. How countries have been doing with their vaccination. There are some things that show number of doses administered per one hundred. And there's not an obvious pattern so again sort of make sense that you can. Denmark are doing very well but then you have italy. You have spain. You have slovenia and lithuania in the top ten whereas you have big wealthy countries like germany and france and the netherlands as you mentioned doing quite poorly and each country is a precious snowflake with a health system and the value said that really drive this so one of the factors in the netherlands. The case in many countries is at one point. It looked like the astra zeneca vaccine was the front runner that was both the cheapest and the most logistically simple. It doesn't need kind of special freezing transportation so i think the netherlands was a country where they were more banking on that particular shot being the one that was available so they didn't think as much about how they were going to be doing the logistics for a more complicated marnie vaccine in germany. They say actually part of the issue is that germany has many different health insurance systems. And so the data about who actually qualifies for this vaccine is not consistently available whereas in countries like spain and italy. You may be due in certainly in the united kingdom where you have the national health service you have various centralized data system author another thing that countries have had a long time to think about is the order in which they roll the vaccines out. Obviously who gets it i. You can't vaccinate everybody the same week. Does it strike you that. There's much in the way of interesting or indicative divergence in in who is prioritizing. What here in the uk of call us where credit where it's due to the government as we were saying they're doing quite well. They started out with old people. Care homes people with chronic illnesses which might make them more vulnerable. Is that the smart thing to do. I wonder myself with a more thought. Should be given to vaccinating. People like retail workers bus drivers refuse collectors. Delivery people the ones who have to interact with the public and the ones without whom society really would grind to a halt. Yes well we spent an announcement of time in the us arguing over who should go first. Who should go second new should go third lots of categories federal advice flying around about prioritization. But we learned a couple of things once. The vaccine went to the states. They all decided their own priorities. So in some parts of the us prisons and prison staff are being vaccinated in other states. The governors have said no. We're not doing that because they don't like prisoners basically even though that's a high risk population and could be a place where the virus easily spreads back to the community. I've talked to a lot of people who run group homes for intellectually disabled people in nursing homes or care homes but out in the community. They're getting no supply they got forgotten. So i'm lis- despite lots and lots of arguing if you had a clientele of down syndrome individuals. Their death rates are six seven eight times as high as everybody else but somehow the prioritization list so we did spend a lot of time arguing but now we have fifty states with fifty different policies. We've seen a little cheating as a result because when you don't have consistency people start to say that. I'm not gonna follow the rules. So we have people who are rich. Flying to florida to get in line to get vaccinated. Florida per usual doesn't seem to care exactly who's supposed to be a priority. The lord help us to even vaccinating canadians. Their her down there snowbirds so that's causing tension among the locals. But here's the take on less than than i learned. It's great to have these arguments. About who goes i. If your logistics don't work it doesn't matter what your list is if you can't get supply out to the meat packers of the delivery. People are wherever if what we do. Is we send the supply to hospitals and nursing homes or care homes as we've done here that's where the vaccinations occur and those institutions will just vaccinate their employees high risk. Or not is. That's where the refrigerator is. As sarah said it's hard to handle stuff. They're not gonna go running down the street looking for the next category person to give it to so logistics as much as ethics or laying out priority groups drives distribution

If your logistics don't work it doesn't matter what your list is if you can't get supply out to the meat packers of the delivery. People are wherever if what we do. Is we send the supply to hospitals and nursing homes or care homes as we've done here that's where the vaccinations occur and those institutions will just vaccinate their employees high risk. Or not is. That's where the refrigerator is. As sarah said it's hard to handle stuff. They're not gonna go running down the street looking for the next category person to give it to so logistics as much as ethics or laying out priority groups drives distribution
"mullahs" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"So we I think what's going to happen is is going to be a mass exodus of tech engineers frustrated with what's going on following their conscience, giving up their livelihood. I think that's the only thing that will change these things. We have to shock the people. And hold them hold their feet to the fire by exposing what they're saying and doing inside Twitter and Facebook and Google. Now, the last time we checked, the Ayatollah, one of the Mullah's in Iran was out there is their Twitter accounts up and have Communist Chinese with propaganda tweets up there. I mean, they still up. You know, tweeting threats that Israel cause I didn't notice that And by the way, I could go through Twitter on any given day and see the most horrific things said about me and I've never once thought my life that I'd want Twitter to take them down or silence. Any Democrat that hates my guts. And and even makes false, libelous slander against me. I just It's never crossed my mind, James. I just I'm like, Actually, some of the attacks are funny. Well, the, uh, the double standards or are if there wasn't for double standards, there wouldn't be any standards at all. And that's the tale of all this time and media bias. And I'm we have been so much money. They took away $200,000 from our account last week, and we gained another 50,000 yesterday. So well, another irony. Is that this by the way, I'm surprised they haven't taken you down. The only reason I'm not Down. Um as is in large part because we just don't even have access to any of my accounts haven't for ages and I don't even and we just post new stories and clips of the shows, But I guess they some of them have been edited. We still banned from Facebook. Linda, I don't even know anymore. What? Yeah, democratized. This story was trending on Twitter Guys yesterday number six on twitter dot com. I think the reason they haven't banned us because we do stories like this, and it would make this story even bigger. It's a strikes hand effect. It is odd. They have not banned us. I'm prepared to be banned. My my strategy is to Have everyone download the clip and distribute them into their own social media. If they ban us, and we think we could pull that off effectively, because I think content, the video clips of what they're saying and doing is more powerful than the platform itself. I believe that strongly and that's why they won't stop Project Veritas. Quick break more with project Veritas is James O'Keefe on the other side. Also your calls coming up and John Solomon at the bottom of this hour. 809 41 Shawn is our number. Listen, I want to talk about our friends at 1 800 Accountant. Alright, listen. Talking about massive tax increases. Massive 1 800 accountant there, the nation's leading virtual accounting firm for small business, independent contractors. Um and you're going to need access. Oh, and.

The Trump Administration's Policies in Afghanistan and Africa
"The foundation for the Defense of Democracies. He's a senior fellow keeps the Long word journal with Tom Johnson and his colleagues. We go immediately to Afghanistan because here during the Republican convention We want to explicate what we can of the Republican intention if it is successful, winning a second term for President Trump and then to remark upon thee. Trump administration's policies in Africa, particularly when it comes to the kind of length organization Al Shabaab on the attack. Billa Very good evening to Afghanistan, you and Tom for many weeks and months now. Have illustrated that the trump policy from the first term was to make a deal with the Taliban and withdraw as much of the American presidents as possible. And hope for the best. I do not expect the Republicans toe have another direction is your sense bill that the military is quit with Afghanistan? As much as the political apparatus is quit, are there of two minds here? Good evening to you, Bill. Good evening, John. Yes. So I agree with you. The Trump Administration is not going to change policy in Afghanistan, Um, barring some type of major events. Um, it's it's just both sides of the aisle are pushing the end The endless wars narrative, which, of course is ridiculous, because the jihadists have a say, and they're going to keep fighting when we leave, of course. We could. You could say something like we wantto end our involvement in these wars. Fine, But the wars will continue our enemies get a vote, and they're nowhere near tired of fighting. The U. S. First the U. S military goes for Afghanistan. Give US military as a whole. Once out of Afghanistan, it's been a drain on their resource is on their energy. Um, I don't. I think they don't see an end. There. They feel again. I'm not speaking for the entire military. And this was the sense I get from millet, you know, from top military leaders. Who have basically signed on signed off on this policy. There's been no objection publicly to this policy of, uh, negotiating with the Taliban and cutting a deal with them, even though they support Al Qaeda. In the meantime, the Taliban and there is Taliban Afghanistan. In several iterations, there's Taliban, Pakistan and several generations the Taliban is preparing for Nearly triumph, but rule I follow from your posting at long word general that Tariq eat Taliban. Pakistan is congratulating the Muslim UMA in general and the Mujahideen in particular on the merger of the two main groups of jihad in Pakistan. Can we regard this as a temporary merger because and they'll be back to fighting over cities or is there some collective push now for the Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghanistan Taliban to work together? So I think there's a push for the Pakistani Taliban in the Afghan Taliban already work close together, Um they Pakistani Taliban fighters have refocused their efforts to Afghanistan. After Pakistani military operations against them. Remember the Pakistanis play a double game? You're You're a good jihadist If you fight in Afghanistan are cashmere, but you're bad jihadists in the fight against the Pakistani state. So this merger that came up really? I found a little surprising because I could point back to a statement in 2015, where the one of the two groups of it's called One of them's Hezbollah, Har. Um, you know, so it had announced that it already merged with the movement of the calibre, or should I say there were ties broken during the turmoil back in 14 4015 with Mullah Omar staffed and when Melissa was alone took over the Pakistani Taliban. Ah, lot of inside baseball, but I won't go into but they had already announced that they had reunited, so something has happened here. Within the last five years. I think this is really sort of There was probably some kind of personality dispute, and I think a lot of this is for propaganda anyway. Really, to just say, hey, look, we're all unified. We're all going to, you know, operate under the same command when I think essentially they were doing the same thing. I go to Africa because you are a U is a long word General have resource is to cover the story of Al Shabaab. We spoke recently of their surprisingly professional looking videos of their recruiting on their training. Now we have a report from long word general of Al Shabaab on the attack hotel military base suicide assault, reminding me that this is a very sophisticated outfit trained with Al Qaeda, Sze Ah complex attacks as Al Shabaab growing and strength to your measure, it does the next Trump administration need to pour more resource is or get out as well. Yes. Oh, Africa has always been fascinating, particularly Somalia. I think some outside of the Taliban Shabbab is the most effective jihadist insurgency in the world. They have They continually take the fight to the rump some Somali government they control 25% of the country despite the fact that you have the African Union and the US and what they could piece together the Somali military and police. To oppose them, and they're there have very good propaganda. As you noted, It's improved a lot over the years and there are very effective at conducting their attacks and keeping their their fighters. Trained and keeping them in the rank and file. Remember, there's been an attempt by the Islamic state to poach from Shabaab, but it's been largely unsuccessful. Not only did they have they conducted major attacks on military bases and hotels, yet another town this one outside of the town of Baidoa, which eyes in sorry the city. If I go, it's probably the second largest city in southern Somalia. Um they took over the town after the Somali military withdrew in the Somali military withdrew from that town because Shabaab was besieging it, so I think Um, I always reluctant to say they're growing in strength. Thes groups have sort of There's an Evan flow to the fighting, and sometimes particularly went outside groups. When the African Union and the US start piling on them. They have some issues, but they're able to await it out. That's the one thing these John, one of the several things that they have. To their advantage. They have the time. You know, that old saying goes, we have all the clocks, but they have all the time While they're very patient in their fight. They're very patient in their jihad. While we have men may have sophisticated military equipment, that's the clocks. They have the time and patients in the will to fight these battles, not enough terms of the US election cycles but in terms of decades Built in general. Now we're at the crossroads for another administration, either, Mr Trump second. Mr Biden's first. Is there any indication pattern worldwide that Al Qaeda is waiting for that decision, or are they staying on the offensive? Matt, no matter who wins. Yeah, I think there are on the offensive. No matter who wins. They do follow the political situation here, but I think they've come to the conclusion that this is just my opinion here. But I think they've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter again that end the endless wars narrative and and the actions by the U. S government over two successive administrations. Policies of withdrawn, scaled down and whatnot would look to us is withdrawing troops from Iraq. It just closed that the major based ontology or at least US personnel being at that base. Almost 2000 troops are coming out of there. Um, they see this all and nature there taking it all in, and they realized that the end of our fight in administration is not going to counter act. These measures. Bill Rocha
