Who was doing a big on foot with the dog around the place around the whole compound to make sure no one escaped. He sought the tail and he didn't know they crashed either so he came over the radio. It said Be On alert. Geisler definitely ready for us. They have a training mockup. Super-secret our cops are in the front.

My favorite one is a die with tiger sharks without a cage and then the great whites off the coast of Guadeloupe because of some of the rules in Mexico Whites ruled the half the night with the cage. But you can go astray with great whites medication. Probably GonNa do that with the I got A. I got a buddy Andy Cassagranda. Who's one of the best underwater camera on the world and he needs to convince me to do that and yeah I mean there's nothing debts to me it it's an adrenaline right on. I'm good but sitting in the about to get in this beautiful water. Knowing there's tiger sharks that Trenton went to get down there. It's just it's just really cool and they're really they're really the I. I started using a weird word with these big apex. Predators is polite. They're polite animals and the The Tigers like to mess around with you like they're not gonNA bite you they. They've they WANNA play with you a little bit. And the way that Andy described to me before we got any said These tiger sharks kind of remind me of the Chubby tipsy fat cheerleaders in high school. I was GONNA say they vicious if you well. I wouldn't recommend it in the water with bull sharks. They're they're they're big they're honoree and I've heard they have more adrenaline in their bodies than a royal city heat and I've I've been in the water with them without a cage in shallow water like murky water and their mouths huge and these are their Their Grades and tigers are polite bulls are twitchy and I was even asking Andy So when when you move a hammerhead push them down in a way. Kind of the heisman with Tiger Sharks Anthony pushing the side. Where do you touch a Don't touch the bull shark. They hold a grudge. What if trump called you and asked you to go on the campaign trail forum or make an appearance or make a commercial? Would you do it? it's hard to say because I I mean even though I have political places I I support the president but I support every president. I support I. I work for for president. Clinton President Bush doesn't Obama. I Know Donald Trump had dinner with him. The White House And I I support America. It all depends on the situation. It all depends on what's been said lately. It's you know I it. Just it's odd because I am not as conservative as people thinking I'm also not as liberal Try to try to I try. I try to tell the truth when I can and I don't WanNa get on either side of it. Would've kimberly guildfoil last really trying to get him in trouble. Jerry there is a mass is your wife is awesome. January beautiful brilliant and eloquent speaker and what I mean it all depends on. We'll we'll see I I I do I do what's best for the country and it's just I had to have to hear more I need. I need ninety by Stop going to sleep all the time. Rob One of the things. One of the perks that you guys get sealed. Did you get to work with some amazing technology and some really cool thing? So I've read on some things as bad ass is like the Osprey machine and if you've ever had call in ghost rider and what kind of damage does that thing do i. I've heard some of these cool things but you've obviously got the first half of them. I've seen ospreys never been in them and those are just cool in Australia. The double prop the helicopter airplane That's pretty neat. And and and I have a lot of respect for the marines that use those because they've had a pretty bad track record of Windsor developing. That's that's a tough technology transformed from a helicopter to plane I have called in weapons before nothing to advance bin Laden pretty advanced up because we kinda give them the keys to the house but the coolest stuff I've worked with has been the people we talked about Conan airstrikes when I was in a really bad gunfight on the on the border of Pakistan before the Bin Laden raid and it took a long time to get any jets there. Because they just weren't ready for us and we got one there and we're trying to call him and there's a lot of technicalities that come along with bombs and the pilot was pilots are so cool the here on when you find an airline or anyone. How a monitoring their voices are execute. Everyone calm immoral to keep us calm. The first thing this is it was just talked to me. Like I'm a man and I I see where women find you attractive. And then we media. Do you ever see Bin Laden Dreams? No but I can Anytime I close my eyes I can see what happened if I want to. Then you know people ask about the nightmares about it's never about combat. It's usually about like being eaten by a dinosaur are shocked you Married a New England girl right. You got married in on Cape Cod. We did get married. Saturday Barzan Yeah. She was funny up. 'cause grow- growing up in in in in Boston when she did see Chino's winning like not like old school bus like the the pats the red sox the Celtics and Bruins So I was invited at fenway to throw out the first pitch and she being from near Boston I brought her out on the mound with me so we went out there and it's televised game nationally televised game and she was a little nervous and excited. And because I've got great advice that someone said you're never going to boot throwing over the catch so just try. So I'm on the mound at Fenway. And I'm like first of all I'm like okay. This has got to be the loneliest place in the world the And my wife on there associates tried to. She was nerves. I wasn't she said them. Don't rob no one's watching everybody's watching a televised and I said I'm not gonNA get nervous as long as my favorite player doesn't come out to catch up. Joy came out in like I. I'm a little nervous now. I gotta I gotTa do this. It works out well. It was a kind of lob it in there but I did call it a breaking ball. I was going to say we don't remember it. So that must have must have been good if it were really bad if it were like one of these like fifty cent through one or the gymnasts or the gymnast back slipped area. At least you didn't have been that bad. We would all remember it. Sounds like a pretty good life rubber. Neil's got a pretty good thing going. What's the only what's the worst part about being the guy who shot Bin Laden? Well it's it's the it's the unknown If if people WANNA do something they only need to be right once in awhile. I needed to make a lot of changes in life with with a lot of family members and certain security installments. That I don't I don't really get into its. I don't WanNA show my hand but added a lot of. I had my kids around a couple of times. So maybe so. That's it but I mean in person so far everyone everyone I meant. Curse has been great jobs. Not everyone on the on. The twitter feed is great. But but that's twitter. I guess we'll have to take that with a grain of salt. But it's been it's been it's been it's been good One of the most memorable conversations I have with a handshake was a guy. Came up to me in a in a airport bar or something and he said I wanted to let you know. I'm a practicing Muslim and I really WanNa thank you so what you did so really. Yeah it just really cool stuff like that like I said in person. People aren't as bad as as they as they seem like. They are on on television on Cable News in on long I think you. I think new connect all I can say in person and you didn't know who I was a care but you're you're great to everybody. People were bugging. You was at the Super Bowl and yet a lot of people trying to get a piece of you and you know you couldn't be nicer and I think I mean today. Fame is a weird thing today with the social media and everything else. They're people you see and you don't even know why they're famous. They're just famous like the old Kardashian thing or you know you see You know a deed. Whatever their Hadid women are people and you go or the the bachelor guys. What are they famous for again? What do they do? And they're famous for being famous and other people famous just because they were born famous like whatever the royal family and I think the KIPI anything better or more worthwhile than being famous for being famous for then what you're famous for..
Israel and Sudan Will Push to Normalize Relations
"Get now to this month's news that Israel and Sudan will push to normalize relations that sounds like a huge diplomatic coup for Israel. Is that right? It is a massive diplomatic coup for Israel. it's a great thing. I think for Sudan as well A separate matter is how it was conducted however and that has to be said If you look at what's good for Sudan itself I think Any measure that strengthens Sudan's economy and at the same time strengthens the The the cohesion of the Democratic Forces that one would hope would emerge prevail in a sustainable way way up on elections for the down. The line is a good thing for Sudan Israel's role there Obviously is is one of Assisting and in having Sudan seen as a friendly country towards the West which which is the port of call for assistance in the development of Sudan And that was much the idea behind the the elements in the Sudanese governance structure. That looked for this meeting with with with Prime Minister Netanyahu The however There's a diversity of news of views among the civilian political constellation in in Sudan as to how and when to engage with Israel. And what's been announced by Netanyahu and and And General Borhan in compiler Is that copolymers. The capital of Uganda. That is intended to set up afterwards normalization of relationships. You know the other the other interests there. There are In in in this in this Development are to Wean Sudan from the potential influence of Iran. And that's the reason why in this meeting it is understood that there was a heavy involvement of the of of the Gulf Gulf powers especially the United Arab Emirates which presumably set it up where it's understood. Set it up after about three months of negotiations Negotiations with the military To Go back to your question about Israel and Sudan in the last few decades you may remember that there were reported bombings by Israel of convoys of arms and Sudan I it was understood at the time that that's that Sudan. was getting assistance from Iran to arm elements in the Gaza Strip. And that was the route that these ratings bombed The main obstacle that Sudan has right now economically is the fact that because Osama bin Laden was was hosted in Sudan enlarged in Sudan the US designated Sudan a state sponsor of terrorism and That designation stands in the way of Sudan enjoying the support of certain multilateral entities that are deemed to be indispensable for unblocking the hurdles towards development in Sudan and that was very much behind the the idea of the military elements that engage in this conversation with Netanyahu there are elements within the civilian spectrum in Sudan that are not particularly opposed to engaging with Israel but saw in the way this was conducted a trampling of the agreement that that he would be the council itself not one member of the counselor one element of the council that would develop foreign policy decision of this dimension and it was reported that the prime minister hadn't been even warned about this meeting and they learned about it through the press even though the military claim they told him a couple of days before So what I'm trying to say here is that while it's a wonderful development the way this is delivered Mccarey some risks because it could fray The or could exacerbate tensions between the civilian elements and military within Sudan from the Israeli point of view. We have to also realize that to the extent that this engagement has to do with brokering results from Sudan. If those results do not materialize you have to wonder how how Israel is going to be perceived on how engagement with Israel is going to be perceived a relationship like this though a warming thawing of ties. It doesn't come out of nowhere right. There's a lot of hard work that went into this. Certainly a lot of a lot of hard work has gone into this Their reports actually that Israel had engaged with Bush here as well in two thousand sixteen by sheer kind of had some nice things to say about about Israel at least relative to its neighbors. Right when the Syrian civil war was kind of ramping up but she said you know even if Israel had taken over Syria. We wouldn't be seeing something this terrible exactly which is mild statement as we would see it. It's not mile given the context in which it was made It's not uncommon for African countries and countries elsewhere. Really do think that the road To Washington go through Jerusalem and This is at play very much here. But it sounds vaguely anti Semitic you know. It isn't and yet if you see it. From the point of view of our ability to insert the values of democracy that Israel represents and the potential for engagement with neighbors that develop in that direction. I don't necessarily think it is so unfortunately though It is one of the main reasons Why many of these governments bother to engage because otherwise they're very focused on their own Takeout from from that engagement in certain carries risks I mean there's no shortage of radical Islamist movements in especially in this hell in Africa that threatened to destabilize governments upon engagement with Israel. So they have to be at sea benefit and the benefit. Gm oftentimes has to do with with acceding to Raising their profile of attention in America and in the mainstream world and they they do think that the Jewish community in America and and and Israel can can help in that direction and point of fact after this meeting in compiler the General General Received a call from Mike Pompeo inviting him to Washington so It was pretty explicit

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?
"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions. He doesn't like when he's walking along the White House grounds when he or one of his representatives representatives are standing behind a podium a controlled setting they must face the questions that require long substantive answers as opposed to the one or two short sentences that suffice in those informal formal settings let view essentially is shared by a group of thirteen former White House press secretary and Foreign Service and military officials who published an opinion in peace on. CNN's website in January of twenty twenty calling for trump to restore the regular briefings in their view. Having to prepare for briefings helps the government to run better letter. They wrote the sharing of information known. As official guidance among government officials and agencies helps ensure that an administration speaks with one voice telling one story however compelling it might be Lowthian also sees the apparent end the briefings as unfortunate. He said it's a valid criticism that some reporters others use briefings to showboat. However I think when covering the White House briefings aren't important function that allow the public and reporters to maintain daily connections? Sometimes it's routine information other times. An odd question from the back of the room can turn into the story of the day even so Lowthian says journalists who cover the the administration will find a way to get stories he said this new normal might be unfortunate but not paralyzing. Reporters are in the business of getting information whether it comes from the mouth of his spokesperson or sources all across the beltway.
House to vote on resolution limiting Trump war powers
"Shows and yes he blows the in the house Democrats accompanied by a couple of house Republicans are suggesting it's time to curb the executive branch's war making authority so they are now opposing the moves that box in Iran this is now the formal democratic position not that they have a general objection which might lead us to executive authority but they have a specific objection to what trump just did in Iran which is insane because this is the most successful foreign policy moved since really maybe the end of the Reagan administration that certainly since it was in school for one the the bottom line to this is that Ron was backed off of its aggression they were backed off and they lost their top commander they lost their top tier commander who was by all accounts the most effective person if Iran any or any and the Democrats are angry about it they're upset about it why again not because they believe that the congressional authority has been violated Brock about it routinely the reason they're upset is because Donald Trump gave the why to the Obama administration's life and now they've been exposed to here is Nancy Pelosi saying we're gonna vote on a war powers resolution speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi putting out a statement moments ago saying that a war powers resolution would be will be voted on in the house tomorrow war powers resolution she says to quote limit the president's military actions regarding our Ron and this legislation is going to the rules committee and she says will be voted on tomorrow in the house okay I know the world ignoring the fact that the Iranians tried to burn our embassy in Baghdad last week but imagine the kind of insanity it takes to hit from so much that the Iranians burn an American embassy and your first move is we've got to limit the president from Italian and we have to limit the president for responding again not coming from a place of principal opposition to executive use a commander in chief power but coming from we just don't like that trump has exposed our entire ideology on foreign policy and would let a car parts this is just ridiculous lawmakers from across the house democratic caucus left a closed door meeting with top from administration officials in a secure room in the capitol on Wednesday frustrated if not outright angry at what they described as a big justification for last week's deadly drone strike that killed Orion Major General Qasem Soleimani shortly after he arrived in Baghdad so they're angry we killed someone money they're angry at the justification which is that he was involved in the burning of the United States embassy last week this is what they are angry after seriously formula dry appalled I'm a credible Washington and co chair of the congressional progressive caucus which is is kind of an adjunct member of the squad she is there is no real evidence presented this was an imminent threat okay so he's only eight nonimmigrant meaning that I guess two weeks from now he was going to murder Americans but we didn't know if he's gonna murder Americans like specifically tomorrow here is dry appall announcing that trump recklessly assassinated solely money I mean this is doing the P. R. work of the Iranians this is the result of reckless actions by president trump of military brinksmanship president trump recklessly assassinated Qassem Soleimani he had no evidence of an imminent threat or attack and we say that coming from a classified briefing where again there was no raw evidence presented that there was an imminent threat again I'm gonna need to know whether any of these Democrats asked for the raw classified information that led to the virology what was the imminent threat from on we're all looking what was the imminent threat from Osama bin laden for that matter it turns out the killing terrorists is authorized under the authorization to use military force that is pretty much the only thing that is authorized under the AUMF has passed in the aftermath of nine eleven and what is really is about is Democrats being upset the Donald Trump did a thing that they don't like that expose their entire ideology is why and Gerry Connolly out there like this prison was entirely and convincing okay late again where were you when Barack Obama was declaring war in Libya without any congressional authorization then ignoring
House to vote on resolution limiting Trump war powers
"Right speaker Nancy Pelosi says the house will vote on Thursday on a war powers resolution and this would limit president trump's ability to use no Terry force in the future regarded by Iran and it's being put together by representative a lysis lock and she is a Democrat from Michigan but maybe more importantly she's got some skin in the game she's a former CIA and Pentagon analysts knows a little bit about the territory there Democrats say there's no way you should be using a seventeen year old authorization to use military force to go after or the rants top general Republicans on the other side say now this guy was a known terrorist he was a planning attacks against US interests in a rock and he was working and conspiring with other terrorist organizations they say all of that fits the legality of the two thousand two statute and they point out Steve that going after Osama bin laden and others president Obama used the same authorization and there's a debate over whether or not there can be defensive action without consulting Congress or whether or not this is just a declaration of war yeah that's right to Democrats say look Congress needs to be involved in this they point to the historic involvement of Congress but they acknowledge the fact that over the past twenty to thirty years when it comes to these types of things Congress has sort of been left on the sideline and they say it's kind of congress' fault for letting it happen but now they want to take the reins back they say look you should be able to just rush into war based on the decision of one man being the president of the United States they said you need to be able to have but at least the input of Congress have nothing else they say it slows the pace down a little bit to allow people to breed the and make rational decisions and that's something the Democrats say president trump any administration decidedly did not
Trump Addresses Nation After Iranian Strike
"No Americans were harmed in last night's attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties. All of our soldiers are safe and only minimal damage was sustained at our military basis. I great American forces prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down which is a good thing for all parties concerned at a very good thing for the world. Arabian forces had promised retaliation against the US following doing a drone strike assassination of Iranian military leader Kacem Sulejmani last week joining me now is Wall Street. Journal Washington editor Daniel Nassau so Daniel President trump did not signal any additional US military strikes and also said that Iran is backing down for more strikes or experts convinced that this marks ah lasting de-escalation of tensions. I would say round one is over for now Indeed the president did not signal that he was going to take any further military action against Iran and he did as you said note that Iran appears to be standing down which is a good thing for all the parties concerned and last night the Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said that Iran had taken and quote concluded proportionate Russian it measures in self defense which signals to me that Iran sees it struck back in measured manner. And we're done for now. No trump made the decision not to address the nation last night after news began to break that Iran had conducted these military strikes. And before you came out to speak to the nation today today high ranking members of the military walked out flanking him during his comments at the podium. What did you make of those objects? Well I think that the military terry brass and the White House are trying to show that they're on the same page of their reading of the intelligence and of their sense of where the conflict with Iran is right now now now I will note that when President Obama who is a very stylistically very different kind of president when he announced the killing of of Osama bin Laden he came out and addressed the nation on his own He was alone on the television screen during his comments. President trump also took a strong strong tone here in continuing to warn Ron especially against its nuclear ambitions. As long as I'm president of the United States Iran will never reveal out to have a nuclear weapon that has long been an issue especially after the US withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement which President it trump wants to scrap in favor of a new deal. How likely is it that he'll get international support for that? Well the other signatories to the the Iran nuclear deal the JCP. Have they've stuck with it. And I see no reason why China France Germany Russia Russia the United Kingdom would would pull out now Iran has said it suspending its compliance with the deal. But it has not said that it is Withdrawing from it so so I see no reason why at this point any of that should change and Daniel over the next couple of days and weeks. What are some of the through lines? You're going to be following here. Well of course we'll all be watching to see if indeed round one is over if Iran and the US directly attack. One another. But I in particular. I'm going to be watching the iranian-backed Shiite militias in Iraq. They often seem to take direction from Tehran. But can act independently gently so are they going to fling more rockets at US installations or they going to take a breather as

A Review of the U.S. Defense Department in 2019
"Let's take a closer look at the defense department in twenty nineteen correspondent David Martin joins us from the Pentagon David there were some tense moments when the U. S. said Iran attacked the world's largest oil processing plant in Saudi Arabia what happened well Iran court the US intelligence and the Saudis completely by surprise with that attack it was launch from an air base at the top of the Persian Gulf from Iranian territory it consisted of basically a swarm of drones and cruise missiles neither the US nor a Saudi Arabia saw it coming the US basically decided that it was going to let Saudi Arabia decide what should be done in response so there was no real military response from the United States and the Saudis who above all else do not want a war with Iran have not force the issue also in the Mideast that U. S. special forces attack on ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi in northern Syria that led to his death he was hit hard the way he should have been and I just want to say for all of our military were very proud of you I was something very special remind us how that played out well that was in the immediate aftermath of the decision to start pulling US troops out of surgery and it had been in the works for some time the US apparently had a spy inside Baghdad he's compound of who could tell them not only that he was there but tell them the lay out of the compound and so the raid was conducted using the delta force out of a a base in Iraq the mission was to cap sure or kill Baghdadi just as it was to capture or kill Osama bin laden back in two thousand eleven in this case Baghdad he tried to escape from the compound by going down the tunnel but he went down a dead end tunnel apparently with two or three of his children and when one of the war dogs that the delta force had brought with them started pursuing him down that tunnel he detonated a suicide vest he was wearing a killed himself and the two or three children the question remains now what what impact did his death have on ISIS and the opinion of most experts in the US government is that it will not mean the end of vices that at ISIS will recover find a new leader and continue to try to survive by creating sleeper cells that can outlast the presence of American troops in Syria finally David we also saw some changes at the leadership level of the Pentagon including a short lived acting secretary of defense well we're now in our third year of the the trump administration and we are on our third secretary of defense if you count Patrick Shanahan who never became officially the US secretary defense producer for about six months as the acting secretary of defense he was his name was never a sign up to be confirmed by the full Senate and it is a pattern that you see throughout the the trump administration of the original holder of the office of leaving either because he's of fire or be killed comes under criticism from Congress and then acting secretary is appointed and then that situation last for some indefinite amount of time and president trump is even said he prefers to have acting secretaries because they're easier to control and there was one secretary of the navy Richard Spencer who clashed with the president and he was forced out over the case of a navy seal who was tried for war crimes and it was missed by all the people who who have to pay attention to this on a daily basis at the Pentagon Richard Spencer was for a brief period the acting secretary of defense during the the shuffle between Patrick Shanahan and the current secretary of defense mark asper he ran into a buzz saw over the case of the navy seal Eddie Gallagher who was convicted of posing for a photo with the body of the dead isis fighter the president initially overturned the sentence that had been levied on Gallagher and then after that when the navy tried to take away his tried and pan which is the symbol of a navy seal the president intervened once again and ordered that Gallagher be allowed to keep his triton pain with Eddie Gallagher you know that story very well they wanted to take its been away and I said no you're not going to take it away he was a great fighter Izzy yeah one of the ultimate fighters tough guy he's a lot with people these are tough people and we're going to protect our war fighters in the middle that Spencer was negotiating with the White House over a way to satisfy the president without having him intervene secretary defense mark asper thought of Spencer Reid men going behind his back to try to cut this deal with the White House German Millie and I were completely caught off guard by this information and realized that it undermined everything we've been discussing with the president and so markets for fired Spencer although Spencer clearly had already written his resignation letter basically saying he could not in good conscience go along with the president's efforts to intervene in the Gallagher case CBS news national security correspondent David Martin at the Pentagon on a busy twenty
Documents show officials misled Americans about war in Afghanistan
"The big story at this hour however is the release of the so called Afghanistan paper so this is supposed to parallel the release of the of the Pentagon papers back during the Vietnam War that showed that the American government was having trouble in Vietnam a new is having trouble in Vietnam and then revealed to the American people that was having trouble in Vietnam and now you have released a similar papers with regard to the bush administration Obama administration and trump administration with regard to Afghanistan Craig what lock writing in The Washington Post at war with the truth US officials constantly said they're making progress they were not and they knew it a confidential trouble government documents obtained by The Washington Post reveals that senior US officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the eighteen year campaign making Rosie pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence that the war had become unwinnable well the biggest problem with the Afghanistan war is that it was nearly impossible to determine what winning look like because winning in the end really look like stopping another nine eleven that's what that's what the war in Afghanistan was fought for remember was only launched in the aftermath of nine eleven when mullah Omar who's the head of the Taliban refused to turn over Osama bin laden and United States went in and we destroyed the Taliban and ever since it's been a bastion of tribal warfare presided over by a series of corruption ridden governments with the help of the United States attempting to tamp down have local terrorist insurgencies that's been the situation Afghanistan for a very long time and I think that tell understand Afghanistan like understanding rock we we sort of have to understand less less on Iraq and Afghanistan Afghanistan is incredibly travel place so rock is like less trouble they actually had a functioning central government even that was in a horrible dictatorship is a functioning central government in Iraq for for a long time that was not true in Afghanistan and so the prospect of something more closely resembling a national government Iraq the makings were there the makings just were not there in Afghanistan in the first place but to understand what's happening in Afghanistan what has happened yes I understand that American foreign policy basically since the Gulf War and certainly since the Cold War has been a series of attempts to muddle through it's very rare in modern political history for there to be a clear objective in a war so in the original Kuwait war the clear objective was Pushin I'm missing out of Kuwait that was done the war is over when it came to the Cold War the the war was designed to contain the Soviets push that a particular areas but in wars we didn't have a great definition of what it was that we wanted to accomplish the Vietnam War where we were not allowed to just go in and destroy the Viet Cong wholesale in North Vietnam it became very difficult to win a victory because the end goal was not clear the same thing was true in the Korean War which ended up basically being a stalemate the re establishment of the parallel that allowed for the creation of South Korea there is there is there is arguments over whether the war should have been about the liberation of all of Korean whether that would necessitated a full on war with China shortly after the war that we just fought in World War two one Afghanistan very often so much of American policy because it's not just a battle with state sponsored soldiers becomes a matter of modeling to remember we defeated the state government of Afghanistan in three weeks can military took out mullah Omar in the Taliban inside of three weeks the problem was there was nobody to clean up the mess and every time to clean up the mess has failed so there are certain theorist Angela Clodia comes to mind from Claremont institute he suggested that basically once we deposed mullah Omar our job that was done we should just come home and maybe there's truth to that maybe should have when we basically did try to install strong man and how many cars I who's going to preside over some sort of liberalization but also a centralized government the problem was there was no pre existing centralized government mullah Omar the Taliban that is a radical government there wasn't a government that really had control over all the tribes in Afghanistan the first place so when it comes to a series of interior papers saying we don't know what we're doing over there it seems like that was fairly obvious from the beginning of all the talk about the American people being lied to in Afghanistan it's been pretty clear to everybody since about three weeks in this whole thing has been a series of questions about modeling broke and if you listen to general David Petraeus was in charge over there for several years the train says it's not as though we have much choice this is why Barack Obama came into office on the pledge that he was gonna get out of get out of Afghanistan and didn't that's why I don't trust him and often the pledge is gonna get out of Afghanistan and didn't is why every candidate who says they will get out of Afghanistan and I probably will not why because if you do get out of Afghanistan you do risk the rise of terror groups like al Qaeda again in Afghanistan because again with the original goal lest we forget was not to make Afghanistan a better place to make it a a land of wine and roses United States have you tried that back in the nineteen fifties to a certain degree of success before abandoning the effort but that was never the original color the original goal here was to stop nine eleven from happening again that did happen but has it caused an enormous amount of American blood and treasure absolutely absolutely in the best you can hope for over there is a certain baseline level of security so I these papers supposed to dramatically we shift our thinking about Afghanistan nobody even knows a victory looks like over there no president has even suggested what victory looks like over there so the attempt to compare this to Vietnam where victory was very much a possibility all the United States had to do by nineteen seventy three was basically continue to fund the south Vietnamese government and maintain a trigger force in Vietnam and south Vietnamese as South Vietnam would now be along the lines of South Korea that is not the case in Afghanistan there is no victory it's not like there's a certain bulwark of securing Afghanistan they can be spread outward talk to anybody serving in Afghanistan and effectively a chaotic situation and has been for twenty years so the Washington post is the bomb shells about how people in in inside the defense department are confused about what exactly they're supposed to be doing and what they're supposed to be conveying a certain extent I am not fully on board with this idea that V. it that it's good for the American people to know every internal deliberation on foreign policy I think that the American people should be able to judge whether or not we are achieving goals the American president should be held accountable for what those goals are obviously of lying is going on that's not appropriate but the goal in any foreign policy conflict is that there have to be some documents under cover me if you want any level of honesty and transparency inside the defense department for example you can't be spelling the stuff out in the public view every so often that does Kerry within nature not only to America's foreign soldiers that foreign allies our our soldiers abroad right so how much of this was lying and how much of the shading the truth is a real question for positive always existed Washington post as US government tried to shield the identities of the vast majority of those interviewed for the project and conceal nearly all of their remarks the documents were generated by a federal project examining the root failures of the longest time conflict in American history include more than two thousand pages of previously unpublished notes of interviews with people who played a direct role in the war from generals and diplomats to aid workers and Afghan officials in the interviews more than four hundred insiders offered unrestrained criticism of what went wrong in Afghanistan and how the United States became mired in nearly two decades of warfare with bluntness rarely expressed in public the interviews lay their pent up complaints frustrations and confessions along with second guessing and backbiting so is it really great that the American people and now been made privy to second guessing backbiting and the blunt expressions that are necessary behind closed doors if you're in a business or you work in a business would you want everything that is said in corporate hallways bust out on the front page of The New York Times probably not much looking corporation is answerable to the American people these folks are presumably but I I do wonder if the coverage of the Afghanistan papers is nuanced enough to really merit the coverage that is receiving

The Washington Post faces backlash for headline calling ISIS terrorist 'austere religious scholar'
"About this disgusting behavior I mean and the Washington post took owner this ISIS leader calling him a religious scholar in an obituary that they did now they got so much backlash that the immediately changed the headline but the Washington post in our precious United States of America this beautiful obituary for bad Dadi deeming him this one minute religious scholar the left is sick the left is quite dangerous the left has to be stopped how get your details to your voting booth get involved get involved in the campaigns get involved with your elected officials because friends if you're going to tell me that the left isn't insane then you tell me what you make of the Washington post say these very things you tell me why Susan rice basically saying that the president did extend common courtesy they don't bother to call and congratulate president trump no and I remember back in the day when bomber plane that Osama bin laden was taken out then private citizen Donald Trump called an extended his congratulations but instead of getting the graduations were the world is now safer not only here in America the flower L. Weiss from this evil terrorist the left is attacking the president and they're making even a further case for impeachment all the president lacks scruples the president lacks common decency did you hear the way the president announced the gory details do
Booing The President, What Goes Around Comes Around Politics And al-Baghdadi's death
"Trump was at the game last night where he was greeted with boos when his attendance was announced during the game accord the Washington Post the crowds sustained booing hit almost one hundred decibels and was followed by chance of lock him up impeach trump when he was introduced after the third inning he good morning and welcome to morning Joe it is Monday October twenty eight and with us we have MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle White House reporter for the Associated Press Jonathan Lemere president of the Council on Foreign Relations and author of the bulk a world in disarray Richard Haass columnist and Associate the Washington Post David Ignatius and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Retired Four-star Navy Admiral James to Rita's he's chief international security and diplomacy analyst for NBC News and Msnbc it was sort of startling and sad to hear those chance of lock him up Saturday from the crowd I do no pleasure in that it really was there have been many traditions that have been brought about Donald trump and his supporters and people around that are UNAMERICAN of even fascist like a chance of lock her up the sent her back but the lock lock her up about Hillary Clinton repeatedly has become a centerpiece and that's what that's what dictators they take over and then they start talking about imprisoning others and it's un-american it's it's here here playing chant here aw that's that's unfortunately it's been fad to America's political system through Donald Trump and last night it was turned against him it but again it's it's it's un-american and the people in the stands that were doing it last night shouldn't have done it in fact they learned they have learned from Donald Trump that's what you do to political opponents I hope that Donald Trump after saying that he could be facing this entire campaign will cut it out we'll cut it up because this is I remember when Barack Obama was leaving office a lot of liberals wanted George W Bush tried by some international tribunal. I remember saying don't do it because it will be you on the other side of the presence he didn't have to worry about retribution from person that you follow yeah of course you don't you never think Mike Barnicle nobody everything's said anybody's ever going to follow them as president the United States when they first get in just like Donald Trump it's never he's never imagined it but live by the sword die by the sword and sure enough now you have donald trump having bar conduct an outrageous an outrageous investigation against Barack Obama and Donald Trump even calling the forty fourth president United States treasonous it's like this guy is just not smart enough to figure out that it goes around comes around and what he dishes out to others will be dished out to him that's why everybody has to tone it down stop chance stop with fat stop with fascists like tactics and the rhetoric it's just on I'm American and it's just not right yeah Joe and you know if you know this I mean most people know this what of people in this country just want the entire situation calmed down they want the country to come down they want candidates to come down be tough to have the crowd last night come down because really into it unfortunately but I think it's important going forward especially today as we talk about the events that occurred over the weekend that we take the time and the fought to separate it donald trump and whatever you feel about Donald trump to separate him and how he behaves in how he speaks from the actions of the Delta Force team the special operation now flew in and conducted that mission is to separate things and the best of the best of who we are and what we do around world's in why so much of the world still relies on this was in operation over the weekend Jonathan Lemaire you can speak to that but also last night yeah I mean it is certainly an American tradition to boo politicians who go to baseball games there's there's a rich history of the American president seeing the American pastime William Howard Taft was the first president throwing the first pitch I remember the Barco was there and every president since has at some point this accident has not yet not since taking office but he went last night I think the people around him we're hoping it could be part of the victory lap after announcing the death of album Dotty earlier in the day that of course was not the case but let's remember he's deeply deeply unpopular in the district of Columbia itself received about four percent of the vote there in two thousand sixteen obviously it's a little bit of a different crowd last night the world series it's more out-of-towners more corporate types still he was going to get booed and he was but certainly it comes at the end of what his administration feels like a a a significant watershed day for him to be able to make this announcement of the death as Mar Mike said you could separate the president and feelings towards him with what happened the day before in Syria this leader of Isis killed this is just gives president an image he thinks to put alongside President Obama's announcement of the death of Sama Bin Laden and it certainly comes at exactly the right time his people feel for it's an undeniable triumph to happen during the midst of the impeachment inquiry and it allows him to defend his Bryant C. and Syria just somebody Republican senators critical we know we're here we can we get we're GonNa get to that right now get Sewri obviously just follow pro Jonathan said there is a very long enrich fish presence it sporting events most of them do all different but now but again I speak to the lock him up chance again I it's just un-american it started with Donald trump in fact he's made it the centerpiece of his campaign rallies we find it sickening when it happened rallies Kinda sickening it's we we are Americans and we do not do that we do not want the world hearing has chant lock him up to that he created this president or any president that's all I'm saying let's hope is move forward maybe this one US fascist tactic he and his supporters us during chance that you were going to actually imprison your political opponents so let's evatt behind and just I don't we'll see we'll see if the astros possible going to finish it off in Houston I don't know if Max can pitch game seventy it's possible that's what she will tell me before we came but I said President Trump yesterday confirmed the death of Isis later Abu Baqer al-Baghdadi following a raid this weekend in northwestern Syria by US special operations forces president trump tease the announcement in the tweet on Saturday night writing quote something very big has happened God I know by the way they had not confirmed it happened at the time as the Washington clown show post points out the White House script on the death of brutal terrorist Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi was short but president trump turned a somber announcement into a vivid forty minute news conference that included bravado detailed descriptions of military option rations questionable statements and self promotion from the first day I came to office and now we're getting close to three years I would say doc where's al-Baghdadi I want al-Baghdadi and we would kill terrorist leaders but they were names I never heard of they would names it weren't recognizable and they weren't the big names some good won some important ones but they weren't the big name I kept saying where's Al Baghdadi and a couple of weeks ago they were able to scope amount you know these people are very smart than not into the use of cell phones more than not they're very technically brilliant you know they use the Internet better than almost anybody in the world perhaps other than Donald Trump but they use the Internet incredibly well and what they've done with the Internet through recruiting and everything and that's why he died like a dog he died like a coward he who is screaming and crying and frankly I think it's something that should be brought out so that his followers and all of these young kids WANNA leave various countries including the United States they should see how he died now Admiral S- Ravidas ah yeah we'll we'll see we'll get to the the strategic importance of what we get to but again just underlining un-american language and and the sound of tyrants again he died like a dog died like a coward upbringing screaming it's just can you please explain to maybe three of Donald Trump supporters who fist when they hear that the downside of that ny the forty four American presidents who preceded him did not talk about casualties on the ward even if they were the most heinous casualties like Osama bin Laden are are are you name it or Japanese opponents at war are not cease why we we didn't talk that way or Qaddafi in Libya for example In every case Joe the problem here is there's is that internal desire to kind of take victory lap but it's counterproductive it comes across as unprofessional it's spiking the ball in the end zone and here's the real problem it's motivational for the other side make an argument that it's a deterrent I don't think so I think that that tape will be played particularly that image of the dog in the Arab world is well known as as an extremely negative and that'll become a recruiting tool that the Islamic state uses on the Internet and for the record I'd say they're better than Donald Trump there managing apparently to conduct a global operations without owning a shred of territory in Easter after we took away the caliphate from them which was another good accomplishment they still conducted a massive attack in Sri Lanka using the Internet to recruit proselytizing conduct the operation they will use this footage to motivate their followers to recruit more. It's really not how we WANNA play the Yes it is it is actually a much smaller level it's what you call basically press clippings from from locker from for locker uh-huh where somebody on the other side said something you cut out the press clippings you put it up and you used to inspire other people in something we don't want here let's let's let's let's go Richard Haass go to and talk about the impact of the death and we'll we'll get into some of the other things I obviously I remember us being celebrating at least most Americans Saar cow was killed I believe it was in two thousand six two thousand seven thinking that the guy that really was the inspiration for Isis and of course that just lead to more silence splinter groups we of course all celebrated we had our on the deck of the Missouri moment a little bit when Osama bin Laden was killed and two thousand eleven we're all cheering but of course out of that came the rise of Isis and so I'm wondering it's we see very important death but do we make the same one man is going to end the movement that he was so successful in spreading the short answer is yes there's no such thing as decapitation when comes to dealing with terrorists because whether you call them networks of movements they're not narrow organizations that are highly structured we're getting rid of the leadership essentially Abel's all the fighters they'll they'll reform they may splinter and so forth decentralisation there in formality in some ways is is a degree of strain so I think we've got to keep the accomplishment as meaningful as it is in perspective and more important justice important you've got to take steps back and say are we putting ourselves in a position where we can do this sort of thing again and again as we will need to do and there I think the jury's out or you've got to say it's going to become much more difficult we're not gonNA have the forces on the ground collecting the intelligence we're not gonNA have partners like the Syrian Kurds and other Kurds doing so much there's still questions about the willingness of this administration to work closely with its own intelligence community so again yesterday was an important day but we shouldn't exaggerate it and I'm really worried about going forward whether we're going to be able to repeat this because we're going
"osama bin laden" Discussed on WBBM Newsradio
"Of Osama bin laden was killed in Afghanistan Pakistan area. this was originally reported back in July you've been briefed what can you tell us well he he has been killed it good riddance I think this is someone of great symbolic value to all kind of someone else I can go into the specifics more than what the White House has disclosed but it shows they have the knowledge that this was an act pack region it shows the continuing importance of that region to Qaeda it also shows the importance of the region to us in terms of our security that we need to maintain some foot print or some guarantee that they'll kind of won't research in the area but he was not the I think a leader current leader of al Qaida in an operational sense so I think if his name wasn't bin laden it would not have the same impact but none the less an important step in terms of taking more of the leadership of al Qaeda off the battlefield should the present continue negotiating with the Taliban the president should I don't think the negotiation should have been called off because of ill planned to prepare a summit and and falling apart at the end of the day there's only gonna be one way to resolve the conflict in Afghanistan that's three to go she ation but we should secure more than Taliban promises in that negotiation in exchange for a broad round of American troops we ought to insist on at least a partial ceasefire so that we can see that the Taliban are both. willing but also able to control their own elements I want to ask you about some work you're doing here at home which was eight you issued a subpoena.
"osama bin laden" Discussed on Opie Radio
"To be there by the time she was getting frustrated because the day we met her. She's like one hundred percent third-floor this building. Why aren't we going now. Wow why are we here and I and you and they knew that he was leaving to know if she thought he was leaving a few months but I mean I. I doing daily stuffed. No he doesn't leave the house so he barely left that. Ruben walk around the he would leave a stairwell. I guess that he would take downstairs and he would they saw a guy that they named him the Pacer and that's how she knew it was him because taller dude wearing different clothes and he's walking around the same spot never leaving the house and anytime anyone was doing any manual labor with the animals or planting anything he would stop and say hello but he never helped so. He's he's a shake. What did she get for for the Intel. She didn't even get a how does she afterwards. What did she get afterwards. Sr later here in New York and she said I didn't get a parking spot. She's the one that knew it right. Nobody believed her and soon as we get them. Everybody wants an award. She military knocked. She was one of the three letter agencies right. She got nothing a bonus anything. I don't think so trip to Cancun something. You think you'd give her something. She was awesome. Those the the the depiction of that woman zero dark thirty is really this job with her very cool and she's a bats so now your helicopter lands so we will yeah we're. GonNa go to the roof but the the the helicopter lifted up and went back down so Atlanta's right back where slammed the other guys because that pilot saw the other pilot crash exactly if he can't hover there. I'm not going to try to hover above the house. I don't want to crash to put us down and you guys were prepared for the I remember thinking I remember just one of those snapshots in life where my right foot hits the ground and I said I guess we're just going to start the war from here brickell and up till the one we'll bring some humor into it till the one funny thing that one of the Navy seals set said guys we have to be careful when we got into the House so we tried to blow up the we knew there was a a double hinged door off to our left facing as the compass the northeast side of the compound so we went put a a huge seven foot charges see six. This is a monster and it blew the door open but there's a brick wall behind it so the bridge it back just just kind of kind of going through muscle memory. You say okay failed breach meeting. We didn't get any goes. He was this bad man. I remember saying this is good. That's a fake door. He's in there. No one puts a fake door under house right so we go now. We thought the other helicopter. I'm getting to that point Mike. We thought that the other helicopter was still flying so we told them fail fail breach northeast corner now. We're going to blow the carport meaning. That's the one we have seen open the cargo in and out and they said no no don't blow it. We'll just open it and then the door opens and a thumbs comes out so we're looking at the thumb and then another situation in life where it doesn't matter how we got here. I don't need to know how we're just here. We'll talk about it later. I didn't know how guys got dinner and so we finally get another gunfire going off. At this point they killed abroad and the guest house. One of my guys just shot to the people bottom. That's when I got in there so now there's women and children kind and moving around and a long hallway and you don't WanNa stand in a hallway 'cause guy bad guys will put a gun on a whole bunch of spray so I actually saw another navy seals grabbing children we're obviously startled and putting them with women like so they don't need to be they can be with as little amount of fear as possible which al-Qaeda would not do that to argue and of course the good guys right back into the room and I remember looking up for explosives because they'll go hanging from the ceiling and that's what's going to take the whole house on top you and kill you. Don't I don't see that I'm watching my guys work. They're just working and I remember being so proud of how cool these guys are because I have a front row seat to the best mission in modern history. I'm watching my guys because I got nothing to do so I'm standing there and that's when one of my guys said helicopter crashed. He whispered helicopter helicopter crash now. I'm thinking like like I mentioned those other seals that were on the chinooks big ones forty five minutes behind us. I'm thinking they got spotted and they got shot down. We just lost sixty guys and I go oh my God what what helicopter crash and he goes SPRO. Our helicopter crashed in the front yard. You walked right past. It just didn't register now at this point. Though the timing was important the timing was impeccable at this point one of our snipers who had the dog and the dog handler they were running around the entire perimeter to make sure no one escape through whatever ever kind of escape tunnel yeah and that's what he saw the the tail of the helicopter over the famous part where eventually fell down and he I came over the radio and said all right guys be on alert. They are definitely ready for us. They have a training mockup of our super secret helicopter in the front yard and that's where his minded because he was on my helicopter and then here the boss frustrated he goes no you Jack Ass. That's ours we crashed and then the snipers back with yeah that that makes a lot more sense carry on and I'm talking about. We gotta go get him. On this turns. These are the conversations that are being as we're trying to get up. It's turning into an SNL skit. decided it s one question these guys that have the dogs you know and you get so attached to that animal and animal animal equal as part of a pack. So how then do you leave the service and leave the dog behind. They take the dog with them. They do yeah they were talking about this Cairo Cairo he he had been shot with an AK47 and chest twice before this mission and lift when we heard we have we would say as an eagle. WFAN wounded naturally callers eagles. He W we're trying to answer a call sign so we know who we never say a name and they said well. It's canine so the Cairo well dog get get shot and the dog dies. It's a little I mean compared to human. Ak47 they don't have body armor and Cairo lift and then he went on the bin. Laden Raid Wow he Cairo has two silver stars. I I have two silver. Stars just still alive No Cairo did die just old but he was. He was funny too because there's so much bowl to came out of his mission. One of the MRS was we had like this twenty thousand dollar titanium teeth that we put in Cairo's mouth not the case. Cairo had one tooth because he had gum disease. He just was there for his nose so so this is something today. have one of those funerals where everyone's trying. I don't know what they did with Cairo. He was he was retired and some of those some of those police dogs when they die in the funerals and everybody's Ryan China will just bring it to your well the guy that can handle them. He retired with them and live with him and he he said he was he had put him down and he said he was holding Cairo's hand. As is he died in which is just an I hope book about history. We're we're trying to get his the vast at Cairo war in Bin Laden on Andrei to the memorial right down the street all right so now. We're in the house yeah now. We're in the guys are working and I'm just Joan. I'm not that I know that. No one got her. Are you start to think I don't have anything else to do. Well Yeah Yeah. I'm like this house is GonNa be looking ahead of me yeah. I'm not endanger this this. This is secure I got. I got to wait for them to to reach that door. The hallways barricaded. That's obviously where the stairwells I'm not missing and then they breach it it opens and then they start moving up when I leave my thing and go behind him and I'm like eight guys back so there's seven seals or so in front of me and the woman that found bin. Laden said I don't know what the House looks like on the inside but there will be a stairwell and and when you get to that stairwell you're going to run into Khalid bin Laden Osama bin last year old son he will be armed and here's this woman what she said that's his last line of defense. You take care of him. You can get a shot at the big guy well. That's cool so we got to the stairwell. How does she know that I don't know. How does she know that that she knew somehow through intercepted phone calls Cleveland on the second floor? He's going to hear the commotion downstairs. He'll be waiting stairwell with the AK47. Wow so she's I mean just an analyst very very smart woman woman so we start going up the stairs. He wasn't he jump behind a banister and he was armed and I'm watching and I'm looking upstairs with you. Know six seven guys in front yeah and at this point. I've been in urban environments and gunfights you WanNa. Take as many guys. You can't away from that situation. Let the first two or three handle because if you chuck a grenade just goes downhill and but probably going to die anyway and this is GonNa be awesome. I got to see how this goes. I don't have a shot but I'm gonNA. Watch does pin the corner quickly. Try to get a shadow to grab them trying to beat them. and it was dark and it was quite and here's how good of an operator he was. He just whispered cleaning Khalid Delta Russia to come here or something like come here in two different languages he knew Khalid spoke and he said his name twice and that confused Khalid so he leaned his head over the bastards at what is it. That's the coolest thing so now. There's no one in the way now now. We don't know we just think they're suicide bombers. Maybe okay so we get through that we get to the second floor and then in that's when everyone other than the guy in front peeled off because you wanna clear the areas open spaces close basis unknowns before you go up so oh but I'm the last guy so I can't leave the point alone so I put my hand on his shoulder so I'm he's GonNa look forward and up. He's looking up stairs. Curtain the curtains at the end of the stairwell. I'm waiting for more guys. Once I get more guys. I know that this areas cleared. We can go up but he started seeing people moving. He assumed they're putting on vests so he's hit the way his my sort of working as we can beat them to it. If we go now we gotta go now. He started talking and you never talk. We don't talk to each other. He's like we gotta go. He knows he's got a guy but we go and that's what I thought to myself well. Let's get it over with. I gave them a squeeze. I wanted more guys but we just had we were so thin so I- squeezed him he the stairs push the curtain and tackle the tackle the turn out to be women like we were talking about earlier to absorb the blast with the guy behind. We talked about it later and he said that guy. I tackled the women just assuming they were going to sue me. They're going to blow up if you could get change the angle of the blasts because they're shooting. BBC's yeah maybe the guy behind him will live and get the shot. He's GonNa the dust and that's what he did. I mean this. This story will be told this guy should get a medal of honor at some point and robbed. The one thing that you said to me that really resonated with me was when you said you didn't care about your life at that that point but once he said Khalid Khalid and actually killed him. You said this story needs to be told he just might have changed history of Khalil's. Everybody movie movie sprays. Everybody got. You're getting them right. Pakistanis get so yes so he did that and then he did that which this like my Brits Dolinsky was awarded the Medal.

"The world and I want all of us tonight I can report report to the American people and to the world the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden the leader of Al Qaeda a terrorist terrorist who's responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men women and children and because the extraordinary bravery of the men and women who where this nation's uniform and the outstanding work of our intelligence agencies Osama bill nod. We'll never again threaten the United States now. Here's your host Greg Greg us so before you go on the mission couple things. I've found fascinating when I talked to last time was the fact that you were convinced. You aren't going to survive survive it which I had. I had the last meal right. My kids that they didn't know was the last meal one of my daughters were so young I actually she took her to chick-fil-a right and she met a girl her age and they went playing in the ball pit and that little girls with her grandmother and I sat there talking to a grandmother thinking this woman. It has no idea who she's talking to. I'm going to die trying to kill bin Laden tonight. How do you wrap your head around that nine eleven the conversation that we had because we talked about this like if we know we're GonNa die I mean why are we going right the best way to put it in perspective. Is We're not going for fame. We're going for the single mom who dropped her the kids off at elementary school on a beautiful Tuesday morning and forty five minutes later. She jumped death out of a skyscraper because that believe it or not it was a better alternative than what's going on inside at twenty five hundred degrees Fahrenheit Fahrenheit and the last thing she did her last gesture of human decency was to hold her skirt down some of your underwear as she committed suicide and she was not supposed to she didn't WanNa do any of that and she's not supposed to fight. We're here to fight. That's where we talked about this. I get all that obviously but now as a father now you're gonNA leave your kids without a father now so I I wrap your head around and I ask the question again. I wrote a letter to all and just explained like the one daughter that's always in the story was seven when we went after she was one when we rescued the lone survivor she was four when we rescued. Captain Richard Phillips now she's seven now but I didn't write a letter to the several I wrote a letter to the twenty seven year old woman explaining planning how I'm sorry I missed her wedding and I know she was beautiful and thanks for taking care of your sisters and what we did was noble and here's why I mean one of my regrets in life as soon as I got back shredded a letter because he wrote. You can't even give it to your best friend because he's going to die too right. You got to find someone you trust. That doesn't know what you're doing with instructions on what to do. If if you see me tomorrow Morrogh give him back. What if you don't do this. Why did you share the letter. I don't know I just didn't WanNA. Read them again. I don't WanNa relive that and I wish I would have kept him now. Well no I understand in a way because that's that's pretty heavy and you want in the moment because at the moment the day we got back is the best day of our lives and we are going to be best friends forever. There's GonNa be no controversy right. We're all friends but you could have pulled that letter out when your kids are misbehaving serious listen. Here's some tissues. Stay the sacrifice. I was going to do for our country to your homework. I mean it was a very emotional time and I even bought going away presence that they get they got. They don't know why they got them where they. I don't even remember but I bought myself product sunglasses because I I saw them a nice. I thought that I couldn't I. I can't afford them on their two hundred forty bucks but I'm going to be dead next week. I've got an American Americans press carpet and I actually brought them with me on the carried in my pocket wow because what if we do live through the night and have to steal a car and drive four hours to Islamabad where we have embassies if it comes to that two sons going to be up and I'm going to need sunglasses and I'm wearing product. I guaranteed guaranteed the right back. You put those sunglasses on safe place and what was the probability that you guys were not. GonNa make it. I thought I thought I thought one hundred percent we were going to kill him but I thought about ninety five percent. We're going to die ninety five percent that the house is going to blow up and we at the last set of stairs. I had one guy in front of me and I actually he jumped on people. He thought were suicide. Bomb Yeah and I turned to the right and there's bin Laden and when I when I wanted to stairs I didn't it. It's not like hey brave navy seal movie it was. I'm tired of thinking about it. Let's get it over with. Let's get this explosion over when you lock it did on my tips is with him for the first thing you want to jump right to that. There's so much other stuff God. I'm just kind of these other guys understand. How do you grow to time spent listening with these podcasts. You don't give away the money shot for ten minutes into the amazing what you just said you know one of your fellow comrades jumps on these suicide potential suicide bombers to protect you tip sit down and I am like sit down way more so it wasn't to protect me it was it was the blast of the guy behind him to get a shot at Bin Laden. He didn't even know it was Komo News. One of those guys yeah we can tell also yeah so yeah it's fine. I like to jumping around actually so yeah you're right the letters and now it's go time and yeah yeah was neat because we went over to we've. We've pre staged. We went to Afghanistan Jalalabad airfield whether it was already a seal team from our same seal team and they were the ultimate professional professional. Could you imagine being over there deployed and they bring another team in to do the job that you should be doing that happened at a rescuing us really cool anyone on the stealthily cops they run the other ones so liked if they're going to get checked out but we got there and we're we're a couple days early. We hadn't been given the green light yeah. There was still a few options but we wanted to be as close to Pakistan's sounds we could in case it said go now how many hours that by helicopter at this point from Jalalabad to his house was ninety minutes ninety minutes so it's interesting because we all accept that something bad could happen catastrophic like desert one when they when they lost so many trying to rescue Iranian hostages so it was interesting. 'cause we played poker would work out. I remember watching the draft the NFL draft and I'm a Redskins Fan I'm thinking I I wonder if they're gonNA take a right tackle or the left. They're going to ally and I remember thinking wasn't matter now. I'm going to be a couple of days so you're sitting there. Just okay with the fact that you're most likely going to done okay with it. It was almost like what if they do a missile strike I mean I want to go on the mission but may live right and you kind of torn between that but then you gotta go because if I what if we don't go I mean imagine being seventy years old thinking gee. We had a chance to get them on because we hit him with a missile they're never going to be. He's dead yeah. He's a new problem because then people like no he didn't conspiracy theories would start up to dialysis thing that was yeah. He wasn't sick yeah. We made it up so we know people relying right when they say hey we found bin. Laden I saw him. We saw the dialysis. When like isn't that great. Hey by the way I do want to jump in and say that's why about all military guys because I can't. I still can't wrap my head around thinking that way and it takes and with us where we worked as a tier. You're one seal team. We're we didn't have the most dangerous job think about the marines that are out there walking through minefields right and they and they get hit right and watch your buddies get blown and a half and the soldiers and sailors airman. There's people out there with the way more Dr Driving Route Irish in Baghdad. Yeah like there's some we gotta find a night on our terms we could see in the enemy can't so I mean obviously the bin. Laden mission accepting death but it was not like we were There are guys out there. They don't get the credit so weird so you're ninety minutes away. Did you throw on a party tapers up to the people. That's a common question. I forgot about that. Don't you want to tell them about how you picked up your first podcasting uh-huh yeah. I gotta I gotTa ask what the last song I listen to it was it was red nation by Lil Wayne and the game oh no kidding and TMZ he asked me that once and I told them and then even like someone like the game tweeted advocate thanking yes sounds like a kick ass song about you know killing Satan and blood in the blood on the ground right cool and Soza game. What do you got Mike on the plane going there. You were seeing the same thing over and over again well. I was counting we were talking earlier about if something could happen but you worrying about it's not going to affect it. There's stop worrying about it and one of my favorite life advice is get over it. Just get over it yeah so stop thinking about so guys did that and it was interesting. There were guys asleep on the right to Osama uh-huh. How how awesome is that? That is amazing yeah. I I was counting rights counting just zero to one thousand thousand zero a long time ago in in Kosovo. They set us senate snipe snipers more armed observers atrocities are happening so you're up there pretty serious mountain vegetation but to sit there and stare through spotting scope four hours on four hours off. You just just get you'll lose your mind so you count. Just keep reminding working. It's so that's what I was doing but Mike was saying. I am as Hollywood as it sounds. I have the tattooed approve it as soon as somehow somehow eighty minutes into the flight when back to the South I was like five fifty six fifty seven freedom itself was attacked this morning by faceless coward and Freedom will be defended that go to hell and I it was Bush kept saying that over and over and then I sort of stopped. I'm like I'm on this mission. The door opens and you're looking at a city city. It's a resort town in Pakistan. You know there's a golf course right over there and they don't overcome it and that's it the counting and reciting that quote. That's that's very meditative. After you meditate non would then I would on just even counting sort of clear the clear the head and get you focus back and then the sleeping thing. Do you know what it takes to get me to sleep. A good night and these guys are snoozing on the way to kill Osama bin Laden. That's a real man yeah so now you're you're you see the compound and you're getting close well yeah and then we didn't know the. Damn helicopter crash the other one. What what what they said was. They don't tell you this well. There's a little bit of chaos involved and we're not talking a lot but what they said. They told us because they were dashed one. We were dashed to simple sounds they. It was dash one. We thought we heard was DASHON. Going around dash one going around meaning they just took fire and they're going to racetrack but what they were saying was dash down dash one going down and that's when crash so our pilot we were going to drop snipers and the dog and an interpreter outside then we're. GonNa fly my team to the roof of the Mons House. The plan was I get on the roof jumped onto the third deck gunfire through the glass. That's him because the woman that found him told us that's where he would be and she turned out to be one hundred percent right on everything. She told us all she knew to the minute that he was still going.

But the only way to be sure the other guy never presses. His button is to be ready to press yours. I even though you would never do it. I know this system has actually worked pretty well. Except for the two times the buttons were almost pressed, but do we really want to continue this?

"osama bin laden" Discussed on The News & Why It Matters
"Don't give a crap about democracy. There is Llamas, there's a lot of and they wanna create a caliphates. Oh, okay. All right. Never heard. Okay. I've heard it from. No, but so there is Llamas, so they're very bad guys, but it just so happens to and this is something I didn't mention on Ray. We're talking about this radio, but I actually believe that the reason why we're our intelligence services are backing this little. Releasing this because I actually think that Khashoggi was US acid. At this point. He was living in the United States. He's got a history that goes back to the nineteen eighties nineteen nineties of actually being employed by the Saudis to make connections with Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. So this guy, he there's laundry, not if he knows all the dirty laundry between the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the government and al-qaeda bin Laden. He knows it all and the Saudis know that. So when this when this journalist came to United States and became a resident was living here, they were like, oh my gosh, what is this guy saying? He's over there. So that's one thing. I actually think he was one of I think he was an asset of ours. I think we were using, which would we would not find out in the public at least at this point that something that we all know the Saudis were involved with nine eleven, right. Yeah. And also and this is where this is where I was hitting that before that the media for ever since two thousand two thousand eleven or whatever. They've basically gone all in on the Muslim Brotherhood like, oh yeah, they're great. They're not bad, they're, they're largely secular, largely sexy. They're all they're all about democracy. That's about spring is a good thing. Well, this guy Khashoggi he wanted to make a Muslim Brotherhood party in Saudi Arabia. He was one of the main opposition groups. I mean, they hated this guy. So basically he wanted to take the Saudi out of Saudi Arabia. Where is the story go? Where do we get the part of the story where he was good friends with the prince, and then it just kinda all went bad. I don't. I don't know where that even came from because he, unless unless the request equating how he was helpful to them back in the eighties and nineties when they were all trying to distance themselves from from Osama bin Laden and how they were trying to explore that, maybe that's what they mean. So here's the real problem with this story. We are once again in the position of this guy was probably a bad guy or press will not recognize him as a bad guy because they don't see the problem with the Muslim Brotherhood nor the caliphate, and so they won't recognize him as a bad guy. We may have had relationship with a bad guy who had kind of started to turn information over to us, which is always dicey, and we're now in the position of we're arming state and involved in a proxy war with a state that is not. Is is not in lockstep with any kind of human rights that we understand the estate. That's basically what the kingdom of a mafia state. But again, that's why everyone's been saying, this is great. You know the new crown prince, you know, he's doing all these liberal, you know, like progressive things. Women can drive now all the studies and take them into the next into into the next level. No, the only reason he's doing that things doing those things because he fears social unrest. So he's doing this thing for the appearance. But at the same time, people are disappearing in mass inside. Let me let me give you another perspective on that. He is a mafia state. He's a mafioso because that's the only way you can keep control while you change something like that. So we're stuck in the middle of going. All right. Here's a new Mobarak. Yes, he's got tortured prisoners. Prisons in these torturing people. But he's actually doing some good things and trying to keep the bad guys at bay, we don't want to lose him. So what do we do? We're right back to where we always are and the Saudi things interesting to you. Another story better than I do Jason, but like it's not just like flick opponents and journalists that are opposing them that they're getting beat up by this..

"This kind of is similar to what we were just talking about about how the news, media picks and chooses not only what. They're gonna cover but how they're, going to cover it, and, when, you talk about journalism you journalists, will say. Well I I want to be. A journalist I wanna I. Want to find the truth I. Wanna. Make a difference I want to. Impact the community okay you want to impact the community do you? Want to do it on behalf of your political party then you should get a talk show or you should be in politics or be a spokesperson or. A press agent or any number of things or, lobbyists but if you want to move the political dial maybe. Trying to be an objective journalist would be. A conflict I would. Have a difficult time doing it I. Would have a difficult time hiding my beliefs Not speaking about my support for Trump since the very beginning at my continued support for Trump and how I think America is exceptional and and the greatest country on. Earth and how I. Think the constitution is genius I couldn't hide that so so that would make it difficult for me, to to interact with people like the the idiot, who was comparing, he's running for congress in Illinois he was comparing President Trump to Osama bin Laden, I would have a hard time I would I would have a tough time interviewing him I would say what are you a moron, so it'd be tough for me to say oh yeah I understand exactly what you're. Saying we'll be right. Back so I couldn't do that and that's what's so disingenuous about what's happening there's a story that, proves this point very well and it's the story, of whooping cough Now for people who. Know this is life threatening childhood illness disappeared? In the forties after the vaccine was developed and the bottom line the news media did not want to focus on it because. It came back it kind of started to. There was a resurgence of whooping cough in. Two thousand twelve, and two thousand fourteen and? It corresponded and this I know for sure, because I, know people that work in certain. Areas of the government and off the record but. Did you know that in twenty twelve the. United States had the highest number of whooping cough. Cases in more than half a century Twenty dead forty eight thousand cases now I could. See that it corresponded to. Illegal immigration my neighbors could see it. A lot of people could see it why wasn't it talked about remember when all the children were coming in on the train and Nancy Pelosi. Was trying to register them to vote and Obama was saying that everybody's welcome here, and and governor Jerry Brown. Was saying come on. Into our state it's a sanctuary state nobody was talking about quarantine tents. At the border where children and families we're coming in with diseases whooping cough among. Them that we hadn't seen in decades it's an issue and I knew it was an issue just by the way. People covered it or didn't cover it so I went back and. I found a couple of. Different stories one jumped. Out at me this is from, NPR this is from National Public, Radio and even they had to admit, and this is. What Isn't it funny that we have. To use this as an indicator I always check National Public Radio or PBS and I always run through the facts. And I'm thinking if they caved in and said it it must. Really be bad and I'm. Going through the story. That National Public Radio did on, it and they said the majority, of the whooping cough Patients are Latino and then I read further and. It said the.
