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

"Patrick Shanahan amid the earlier revelations this week has now stepped away completely from the Pentagon. Tell us about the latest. I mean it was really surprising to everyone in the building yesterday. Those tweets from President Trump basically saying that Shanahan needed to spend more time with family, and he was going to withdraw withdraw his name from the confirmation process. And so he named Mark Asper as the new acting Defense Secretary Mark Asper is currently the army secretary so he won't have to travel far to get into that new job. But just really surprising in that, that those tweets came at the same time that USA today in the Washington Post reporting very graphic details about some domestic violence incidents that had occurred about a decade ago O n Shanahan's family with his wife and son. And so it had he decided it was best knowing those stories we're going to be coming out that he not go through confirmation process Shanahan released a statement saying, he did want to put his kids through it again. But also kind of downplaying saying that the whole story is not out about what happened in two thousand ten. I think he probably knew that other other outlets may dig into this there court records that ABC obtained yesterday about the incident with his son who was arrested for hitting his mother with a baseball bat on. He has now, of course served some of the time for that, and his graduated from college. There was another incident machine. Hints now ex wife where she allegedly punched him in the face. Those charges were later dropped, so a lot of things happening within his family that led him to decide that it wasn't to go through the process here. We're talking to ABC news. Correspondent Elizabeth McLaughlin. So marquess for now comes in as the new acting secretary of defense. It sounds like from some of the statements you hear from Capitol Hill that this is a guy who could get confirmed, is he up for maybe the permanent gig? Trump said yesterday that it was likely he would nominate us perfect the job permanently. He's no stranger again to the department of defense. He's been the army secretary. He graduated from West Point, actually the same year as secretary of state Mike Pompeo served in the army for about a decade including deployment to the Gulf war. And he's a Ben in Washington for quite some time. He was a senior lobbyist for Raytheon ahead spent quite a bit of time on Capitol Hill. So a lot of these senators and congressmen know him personally, and I think he would have a pretty easy confirmation process should the president to nominate them for the job permanently now going in this direction or what getting this taking care of pretty quickly. Wouldn't you say is critical considering the instability with Iran and the tensions in other parts of the world. Oh, absolutely. I mean, we're, we're now over six months without a permanent Defense Secretary, and there is a, a major meeting of defense ministers in Brussels on Monday. And there was a period of time when Shanahan step down where a official didn't know who was going to represent the United States at that meeting. It now seems that Asper will travel to Brussels to represent the US there. But as you mentioned tensions with Iran continually increasing sending more troops to the Middle East and the acting defense chief isn't the only job that isn't filled permanently right now. So now with us for leaving you're going to have a an army secretary position, the secretary of the air force is unfilled right now, as well as the chief management officer, the deputy secretary of defense. So a lot of these top leadership positions either filled by someone in an acting role or not even names permanently. So some stability at the top in the Pentagon would be very critical. Thank you, so much for the insight, and we appreciate your time today. Have a good one. At the Pentagon. That's ABC news. Correspondent Elizabeth McLaughlin. Traffic.

"Patrick Shanahan is resigning. His acting Defense Secretary and is addressing reports of domestic violence in his family ABC's Andy Field joins us on the KOMO Newsline. And it just sounds like the scrutiny that he'd face in confirmation hearings and the wounds it might reopen prove too much for Mr. Shanahan. His family through this again, although it was never done publicly. It was privately in divorce proceedings and police records that apparently just recently came out, which astonishing came out when he was confirmed. He was confirmed by the Senate for deputy Defense Secretary before James Mattis left. And then he was going to push into the job when these stories came a domestic violence in this very clear, because this is what we know we know that his son who was seventeen at the time back in, I think, two thousand eleven got into some kind of very heated argument with his mother took a baseball bat and beat her with it. And she ended up in the hospital with injuries. We know because she was arrested that in the middle of the night, she came in and punched, at least according to Shanahan a Shanahan in the in the eye and nose. And he said he didn't fight back when police cover. The wife says he was hitting her, but there was no bruises marks or anything on her, and he's the one with the bloody nose and the. the black i ended up getting arrested and there's no official charges against him just accusations that she made in divorce proceedings now they've they've been divorced for quite some time if you remember he was a former boy executive and he was out i think in seattle at the time and she'd gotten cussing kids and moved away to understand all this and and if indeed the kids sought he was abusive they certainly didn't say anything they were there on the show support when he was confirmed as deputy defense secretary so it's very sad this is some families private agony that they went through but it was about to become public and shanahan said you know what that's what is this about the vetting process right now well we've seen this over and over again we saw this with the president's position he was nominated to run veterans affairs and almost zero administration experience to do this the fact that he was indeed in the military and and was a physician and then it came out that they were all kinds of problems with him and he had withdraws name we've seen A number of cabinet secretaries withdraw from conflicts of interest to spending taxpayers money when they shouldn't to adult types of things being kind of defies explanation, how all of these people either got into the jobs or didn't have the proper venting to make sure this kind of thing didn't happen. That's what venting his four before you even nominate someone. And now President Trump announcing that army secretary Mark Esper- will be the new acting secretary of defense. What do we know about him? He has been the secretary of the US army since twenty seventeen but he doesn't have this vast experience in terms of managing beyond the army, here, he was in charge of recruitment organization training equipment, and taking care of the one point four million active duty national guard. Reserve soldiers. Be Gregor's use military kademi in nineteen eighty six. The same year that secretary of state Mike Pompeo commissioned in the infantry served as active duty for over a decade served with one hundred first airborne division. So this is a guy who knows the military, specifically the army. But now he's going to be in charge of all the forces. And the other thing is that the president got probably less than a year and a half left in this term in office, the way conversations work, it's often three to six to eight months before you even get into officially, so it's not clear. He'll ever actually be confirmed as this person ABC's, Andy Field, joining us from Washington. Thank you, Andy. komo news time.

But rand Paul is I wouldn't say he's an isolationist. But he leans that way. For sure. In principle. I agree on many levels. We should not be the world's police force, especially using our military. The way we do we send our soldiers, and we send our troops. I should just say soldiers whether it's marines sending airmen sending a sending our navy our sailors in to combat zones to be a police force is not the way they're built in what they should be used for necessarily. But we understand post World War Two. We still have a presence in Europe. Japan. All these years later, we still have military presence in those countries.

I don't know about that. Either. Isn't that a question? We look at the military minds of this world, many of them saying that this is an of all people, not a military mind, but Lindsey Graham saying that this is an insurance policy that the the small footprint of troops that we have in serious and insurance policy. Going backwards is not something I want to see there are two things here that concern me one the background. My family has losing a brother and then watching Iraq fall apart years after my brother was killed in Iraq. It felt to me personally like everything and he had been a part of working for was being decimated. It was devastating to many military families. Because the only thing you have to hold onto is that feeling that it wasn't for nothing. Well, if everything we had gained is lost. Then it feels like it was for nothing. I don't want any family to feel that way. I don't want any family to feel like it was for nothing. Additionally. We send men and women into harm's way. They sign up to do the job. But when we send them to do that job. They have to feel like they have the support of the American people are the American people just tired. It sounds silly. But are they just tired of war? Our enemies going to say that they've outlasted us. Because I believe this is going to be a recruiting tool. There's no doubt that they are going to play this up as a victory. For them. So I'm not I am not a big fan of sending men and women into combat zones without the equipment and without them. The orders to go and win. But are we going are we setting ourselves up for failure? Are we setting ourselves up for for going back? I speak in high schools right used to quite a bit in Arizona.

I didn't give a speech in high school kids. Don't want to hear a fifty one year old guy speak. I would let them ask questions to do. My best to answer them and high school kids at least where I'm from are concerned about the same things we're concerned about jobs terrorist attacks.

And why I was still supportive of us being in some of the countries we were in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria. And I looked at these kids on a Friday. So a bunch of the boys were wearing football uniforms and some of the girls wearing cheerleading uniform.

Whether it's it's exile imprisonment or death. We could have played a part in allowing them to fight their own battles. But helping them hindsight's twenty twenty.

Is the world safer now than it was ten years ago. I don't think many people believe that it is. I think we're safer from ISIS. I do believe they've been decimated. Have they been beaten? I don't know about that. Either. Isn't that a question? We look at the military minds of this world, many of them saying that this is an of all people, not a military mind, but Lindsey Graham saying that this is an insurance policy that the the small footprint of troops that we have in serious and insurance policy. Going backwards is not something I want to see there are two things here that concern me one the background. My family has losing a brother and then watching Iraq fall apart years after my brother was killed in Iraq. It felt to me personally like everything and he had been a part of working for was being decimated. It was devastating to many military families. Because the only thing you have to hold onto is that feeling that it wasn't for nothing. We'll have everything we had gained is lost. Then it feels like it was for nothing. I don't want any family to feel that way. I don't want any family to feel like it was for nothing. Additionally. We send men and women into harm's way. They sign up to do the job. But when we send them to do that job. They have to feel like they have the support of the American people are the American people just tired. It sounds silly. But are they just tired of war? Our enemies going to say that they've outlasted us. Because I believe this is going to be a recruiting tool. There's no doubt that they are going to play this up as a victory. For them. So I'm not I am not a big fan of sending men and women into combat zones without the equipment and without them. The orders to go and win. But are we going are we setting ourselves up for failure? Are we setting ourselves up for for going back? I speak in high schools right used to quite a bit in Arizona. I would ask to go to speak to social studies groups are, you know, the classes would all come together in an assembly, and I would always handle it more as a question and answer. I didn't give a speech in high school kids. Don't want to hear a fifty one year old guy speak. I would let them ask questions to do. My best to answer them and high school kids at least where I'm from are concerned about the same things we're concerned about jobs terrorist attacks. Are we safe at the time nuclear war with with the North Koreans, and I had someone asked me about because of my unique situation having lost a brother how I felt about the different wars. And why I was still supportive of us being in some of the countries we were in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria. And I looked at these kids on a Friday. So a bunch of the boys were wearing football uniforms and some of the girls wearing cheerleading uniform. And I said to them some of you are seniors which means next year or the year after some of you will be trading in those football and cheerleading uniforms for military uniforms, and what's been going on since two thousand three March of old three was the invasion into Baghdad. What's been going on all of these years and not been solved in the Middle East as long as the Afghantistan war has been going on our involvement there across North Africa. Now where we have troops in harms way, dying as we speak. And. The idea that we as a generation. Didn't do it. We didn't fix it. We didn't take the gloves off and finished the job the way, we should have. We pulled out of Iraq way too soon. We should've hindsight's twenty twenty but we should have done something about Syria years ago. We could have knocked down the air capabilities of Bashar Assad at least level the playing field for the free Syrian army to give them a fighting chance to take their country back without a big military footprint years ago and saved millions of lives being devastated lost or changed. Whether it's it's exile imprisonment or death. We could have played a part in allowing them to fight their own battles. But helping them hindsight's twenty twenty. But you look in the face of an eighteen year old, and you say to them this has been going on since. Oh, three. Many of these kids were not born or infants when this happened. We haven't finished the job. And because of that many of you will Don the uniform of the United States military and go on a deployment to the Middle East. I have four grandsons the oldest of which is seven years old. Less than fifteen years. Now, what's he gonna do? If he decides he's going to join the military where will we be in the world. So this serious situation is more than politics, and it's more than just about twenty two hundred troops being pulled out of a region. What are the after effects in the long term effects of this? What generation how many people is it going to affect go? Look at your kids. You got kids that are fifteen years old. How will this affect them five years from now when they're twenty? How many of your sons our daughters have said I want to join the military where will they be in the world and will this what's happening now with the pull out of Syria have an effect on them. The commander in chief makes very serious decisions. And before I had a knee jerk reaction one way or the other to denounce what the president did or say, it was the right thing to do. I wanted to be a bit more educated on the wise, the people that I know are saying that this could be a big mistake. That this could come back to bite the president because if ISIS or another group, it you change the name. Al Qaeda, the Taliban. Isis. What would be the next group? Is this going to fester into something else where we are going to be sending men and women a couple of years from now back into a region because of the uprising of terrorism because we didn't leave a footprint behind? And it's more of a thoughtful question than it is a political question. And is this going to be that mistake every president makes one or more is this going to be that huge mistake that ends up costing this president. And the American people. Mortar discuss on this topic. Of course, the shutdown. That's affecting everyone in the exact places that it's affecting and the people that it's affecting a lot more still coming up on the show.

"Yeah. President Trump clearly not happy with James Mattis. And the fact that he said he was going to leave. So he's not you know, what I'm just going to go ahead and let you go a couple of months ahead of time. So even though you would play an ongoing two months from now nap out and the deputy secretary of defense Patrick Shanahan. He's in. First of all, I doubt Mattis is very upset. Probably not now. No. And then I guess there's some controversy in some circles about Shanahan being acting Defense Secretary because he also well he spent like three decades with Boeing he was an executive at Boeing, so we certainly knows contracting. Right. I guess he knows airplanes and all that. And then he became Madison's deputy last year, but he's more of a like. Like running. He's like running everything on a day-to-day basis except military strategy and foreign policy concerns on the other hand, he's only acting. So we don't know how long he'll be.
