You can find hunting warhead on. Cbc listen or wherever you get your podcasts. This is a cbc podcast. More than three years after isis was chased out of raka syria. The question of what to do with the families of isis fighters who have canadian citizenship has still not been answered. there are women and children's still detained in camps in northeastern syria. Last month canada's federal government provided travel documents for a four year old girl to enter this country but others including the girl's mother are still living a life in limbo margaret. Evans is a cbc senior correspondent. Based in london. She was at the al roj detention camp where she spoke with some of the canadian women. There including that girl's mother margaret history returned and joins me now from london margaret. Good morning. Hi matt what is life like inside this camp. Well it's It's dismal by all accounts to the to the women. We spoke to its. We weren't actually allowed to visit them in the tents that they're living in but it is as you might pick your any refugee camp You know behind barbed wire armed guards and There about twenty five hundred people in this particular camp that seven hundred eighty four families of suspected isis militants. The women we spoke to talk to you Basically the lock of horizon but also living in in a camp in these cramped conditions and they worried about money food Being able to to to have medicine for the kids that kind of thing permanent caribbeans are there. It's hard to tell precisely it. Estimates are that it's between thirty and thirty five with most of them being children and many of them kids under the age of six one of the canadian women. Who is there. As i mentioned is the mother of that four year old who was brought to canada in march. What can you tell us about her. Well when we spoke to. I should say i'm asked that. We not identify them so that it would protect the identity in particular of their children but they also wanted to guard their own identity. They're all aware that their place is not viewed with sympathy by a lot of canadians Have court cases pending. They have lawyers in canada acting on their behalf and they were all women who seemed really frightened. They were frightened of saying the wrong thing because they have lawyers acting on their behalf. They were frightened of speaking in front of their syrian kurdish jailers and they were frightened of being stuck in that camp forever in frightened for the future of their children's children. This young woman took the decision to basically get her child out even though she knew that she couldn't get out and so she with the help of a former. Us diplomat named peter. Galbraith actually managed to get this done Her he helped her sister traveled to northern iraq than across the border into this region of syria which is an autonomously run region by the syrian kurds. So state players can say it's a state was area. We can't go. That's canada. Also says but in any case you asked about this young woman. She's she's like any woman you might need. She was concerned about Her child she was friendly. She is not wearing a niqab the the uniform of many isis women. Of course she's now wearing tight black jeans. She had a ball cap sunglasses on. Says she's been going through a lot of change. She's worried about these changes. She's made because there are radicalized women in the camp there are still people who are very strongly supporting isis. And she says that that decision to change the way she looks puts her in danger. She's been labeled in prostate. Yeah and she felt again that the situation that they were facing in that camp was desperate enough that she would take this dramatic step of letting her daughter come to canada with her and being again. Peter galbraith is a former u. s. diplomat described it as a selfless act. And you know all of the women that we spoke to see it. Because i mean you're they're living in this camp and they're sort of part of each part of their identity is affected their mothers. She talked about having to pack bag of her daughter as she left you putting it in her favorite teddy bear rabbit and basically you know she called it sugar coating but you know saying to her daughter. You go ahead. i'll come come later. But and she talked birch sort of swinging between the hope that that might actually happen and despair but knowing that life in the camp is so miserable and and right now so without a horizon that was a chance for her daughter to half alive that she feels that she might not she might be denied. Hoover debate the realistically that they will be reunited. I think she does. I think that yeah. I think that there's still hope alive in in certainly the four women that i talked to. I mean like you said sort of swinging between despair and hope that you know she. She she talked about trying to make amends. She said she joined a de radicalization program. That's available in the camp in saying. She felt remorseful. Because i don't know what i can do to show people. How remorseful i am. You know every bit sort of sense that everybody makes mistakes she. She says i asked her. What were you like when you laugh like how did how did this happen she. She described herself as someone who was quite easily led that her circumstances were almost like she was being groomed. You as she met some money canada who introduced her to this to this earth.

"In the meantime, one is Did we start? Did you just have a a session, a special session of the Scottish Parliament, and if so, why and was it all virtual end? What was the big deal? Why did everyone have to get called back in July? Well, you know we. We have a work ethic. Fortunately. Epidemic nobody believes that we should be a way for substantial periods of time. We are technically on recess, but we've. We've match. We're meeting. Three weekly cycles because the First Minister of the review, our regulations undercover takes three weeks, so she aggressive violent, and we deal with that and we do virtual question sessions because we believe that that you we should still be answerable to to the country to its representatives. We, I do quite a lot. Virtually I mean in where I'm sitting in my. In my door study looking over a local. I've done a parliamentary statements from here. I've answered questions in here appeared in front of parliamentary committees from here and brise by three hours by car different. Sue them for five occasions to do things. But we we, it's just not normal year, so are non. Patted, would-be, we would end the end of June. We would start again at the beginning of September We've finished at the end of June. We will start again on the eleventh of August when schools go back, schools have been since the twenty third of well being that since the twentieth, a much scores go back on the August and we will go back then but. I will be in Parliament on the twenty thousand nine hundred thirty s this month, and I will be doing a statement of some sort before, so we're we keep ourselves busy. We believe in seventy people. But there was no particular crisis this month, regarding London's negotiations on Brexit or anything well. Yeah I. Mean I think the reason I got to give a statement before the thirtieth will be expecting, which there will be a white paper new government. Tomorrow's as said on issues which we believe substantially undermined divorce settlement, so that will be part of it but you know the main issue is. An. Issue is making sure that we keep the Pompton people informed of that the first minister undertakes. Daily press conferences on Calvin at up until now. They've been five days a week I. think that will change shortly. But we still do the televised people you know that is open to press question for lengthy periods of time. and you know we we're very. The Kutai gave you an impact and and being honest with people is what we tried to follow, so we fight to make sure that people have all the information they need. I believe. Peter Galbraith has another question Peter. Thank you. and I wanted to just say I I was not being critical of of Scottish independence. When I was asking about the economic issue, it was the sense though that often in these circumstances where people feel they're in the case of Scotland dragged out quite what England did that that can overcome economic issues and I also think point out that countries often do very well after independence, a obviously the Baltic countries case in point of fact of Croatia, Slovenia, clearly, better without Yugoslavia my question as a events in Ireland Northern Ireland effect the Scottish situation I think the polls show. That there's. Majority now for United Ireland or at least very close There's a process. Perhaps you might explain for having a referendum there. You see that process going forward with Boris. Johnson government and I guess it would raise the question of if they are willing to do it in Ireland A. How could they say no to doing it in Scotland? Accepted a special situation in Ireland is recovering from a federation of Civil War essentially. It is, it is not like Scotland, and therefore we've always accepted. Special arrangements for another round have to be made in Rhode Island, and we've never dawn equivalences without, and wouldn't do so and is quite dangerous. Joy collinses, as you well know between national movements in various places there everything is different but there are some interesting issues in in northern. Ireland and the special settlements within Brexit is a particularly important one. There is a special protocol in West Role Agreement Maine and Northern Ireland will sit somewhere between you and the UK. It will have regulatory. Alignment with the EU and the border will therefore not be a border per se in terms of goods, and it will be treated in a special way. Our view is if that is possible for. It should have been possible got, and they should have been some special arrangements Scotland, and that was not reached. The question of of Irish reunification. They different one at you know. There are two in a number of players in there I think the new t shock in a in Ireland. Martin has made it clear that he doesn't think the time is right for a border poll and the border you can be called lives with with the consent of both sides, but I don't think that's likely to happen immediately. I think it's going to happen at some stage. But a lot of this is. The same issue and the issue is. BREXIT has precipitated. He'll change. That was underway in any age. Voted Against Brexit to.

It's probably less environmentally damaging or whatever and So we we just bump belong here and get to where we need to be. Which is talking with Peter Galbraith? I have been introducing you for a little bit here here. Peter thanks for joining Filibuster your gentleman and a scholar for joining us this morning from. You're you're in Switzerland right. I am and what are you. What are you doing Switzerland skiing good for you? I actually took that guess. I said I said he could just be skiing. He's in the middle of some international diplomatic intrigue over there but he could just be skiing so I'm glad to hear you're enjoying a little Vacation time over there. That's great so Tell me I'm sure you've also been following the news when you're doing your apres ski moments over there And and this attack by the United States. It's on the On the Iranian General Qassem Sulamani. The it's causing a lot of international upset and I know you've spent significant time in the Middle East refresh us on your Your your sort of give us a brief brief recap of the resume in connection with the Middle East. Well I've I've followed the this part of the world and specifically Iraq Iran Syria Since nineteen seventy nine since The Iran hostage crisis At that time I was working for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee where I was for fourteen years then. I had a a little diversion as ambassador to Croatia. But after that as a professor in the National Defense University and then has Somebody who is helping the Iraqi Kurds negotiate defacto independence and the Iraqi constitution as somebody who wrote extensively about Iraq Somebody who went to Iran in two thousand fifteen leading the first trip from Harvard University to the country as somebody who's made fifteen trips to Syria since since the war began Area I know fairly well. That's what we buy and does some some of the actors in many of the actors involved in office What do you think of the of the assertion by the president and his people that Qasim Sulamani was planning actively planning Some mm-hmm attack on the United States or its people or its interests that was Unusual enough to warrant this action. Action is the sexual assassination. Well I I. I don't know the evidence that trump may have had Tools made the decision if in fact they had had any evidence at all. Some of the press reporting suggests that the evidence was pretty thin The United States and Iran have been in hostile relations for a very long time. Although at times they've also cooperated operated They cooperated in in Afghanistan against the Taliban they cooperated most recently in the fight against the Islamic state and Costume Silva meaning so a major part of it now So many in the after the. US invasion of Iraq which brought to power Iran's allies allies US military then went after some of these rainy in allies including the cleric mcdonagh. All solder and Filippini came to their support and guess Wisconsin Wisconsin between Iranian forces or forces that were trained by the Iranians and and US forces all that It's a very big step from there. to the actual assassination the one of the most important figures in Iran. I mean it's a imagine that would be the equivalent of of Iranians assassinating the Secretary of defense the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Yeah Yeah I mean. It was a very provocative action And we have a a impulsive president Who is extremely dishonest? So we we can't really rely on his word now. It might be true but when you keep wanting People just can't rely on well. The president himself self has been very very skeptical. In many instances of the information that has been produced in recent years by the United States Intelligence Apparatus and obviously I would think that if he has any the evidence. That Sulamani was Involved in In planning some imminent attack on the United States where it's interest That that that would come from some of the same intelligence sources. The president has spent most of his Ten in terms of our pooh-poohing right. Well of course he. He steeply skeptical of the intelligence. That suggested that the Russians Played a significant role in his election. although that's the unanimous this conclusion of intelligence agencies he's Skeptical intelligences conclusions. He doesn't like he's also one who's never been reluctant to blurt out national secrets so it does make it a question as to why he isn't sharing the supposed to tell in this case And whether it exists or not It's a separate question for whether it's a wise thing to do to assassinate what one of the most important people in Iran. Obviously it's inviting retaliation I it's just could easily escalate into a full-scale war And then the Trump has gone ahead and made some absolutely extraordinary threats. He has threatened into destroy Iranian cultural site. These are protected by the nineteen fifty four. Hey Convention which makes it a war. Crime go to destroy cultural sites this convention that the United States has ratified. It goes against the Security Council resolution that ah the trump administration voted for on March twenty fourth nineteen two thousand seventeen which again condemned the destruction of cultural monuments and called for the prosecution of people? Who did he has also said after the expenditure of of several trillion dollars and the sacrifice of more than five thousand lives of American service? Men and women That if the Iraqis Ask us to leave. Which of course is their right? As a sovereign country that he will impose more severe sanctions on Iraq Than those that apply to Iran. For what for having a democratically asserted their rights as a sovereign nation a democratic system. Incidentally today's that the US has paid an enormous amount of five thousand flights two trillion dollars to bring it out. You know that that really strikes strikes me as as as something to think about here now when the when if the Iraqi parliament and by the way I guess there are some questions about about the vote in the Iraqi parliament in terms of I guess they had a quorum but they but they did not have the entire body there by any means from what from what we hear now but that's correct correct. They beat the Kurdish members of parliament. boycotted because they actually want the United States forces to remain You they in spite of trump's portrayal of the Kurds that we discussed last time They would like the Iraqi Kurds would like the. US troops troops to remain. They they they while they can't really trust Trump is reliable. They they see that that the US is their only real partner to enable them to survive better than nothing right. But it's quite possible that this will lead to American troops redeployed to Kurdistan and and then possibly the the break up of Iraq. Also the sunny members of parliament largely didn't show up so this was a decision taken by the Shiite members who are about sixty percent of the the population about sixty percent of the members parliament. Okay so it assuming that that we have a legitimate vote in the Iraqi Iraqi parliament saying Hey United States You know we've been entertaining you as guests for a long time now and we would like you to leave. The party is over in the United States. Chooses not to leave it. Are we in affected. That point an occupying force. Well we certainly would be Acting contrary to international law I think the one complication is would be a part of the country notably the autonomous Kurdish region where to ask the US to say in the US where to go there and and that probably is a an action that would then lead to the implementation. Tation the decision of the Kurdish people in a referendum on September twenty fifth twenty seventeen to vote for independence. Yeah that would clearly partition Kurdistan. It would that would now be the I guess effectively if not a danger if they factor of not jury a separate a separate state that would be then hosting a large. US military presence. Is that Right is already defacto. A separate separate state and it does host a significant US military presence If it were to declare independence and and of course if the US were directing now. I said then as a legal matter the US forces could continue to stay there since it would be a decision by sovereign independent. Kurdish staff guided. Niger okay all. This underscores the really very unpredictable ways. In which the story obey develop now. Yeah I mean that's what is One of the striking aspects here is that there's you know people talk about an insufficient planning for say how to end the war after you start one. That's why that may be why we're in Iraq and Afghanistan going on two decades here but Leaving that aside even It seems as though this particular situation with the Sulejmani killing Got Less planning than certainly most. US military actions is that fair. That seems to be fair that that that that nobody has anticipated what the consequences are It it it seems. Is that what what happened. Here was that The the Pentagon behave the way bureaucrats to Henry Kissenger once described the way you get the choice you want is a present the president with three options Unconditional surrender This option a option. NBA The one you want an option. C. Is a total nuclear war. So obviously the president's GONNA choose the option want in this case the killing of Sola Mamie any was the option C. and Trump went ahead and chose that at and then it doesn't appear that there were people in the national national security apparatus who've been largely purged by trump who had purged up to him and to explain to insist on explaining what the consequences consequences would be. an extrordinary. Ignorance here Again I come back to the threat to to destroy cultural monuments which incidentally are not just Iranian but these are the monuments of human civilization on the there are many of them are long pre Islamic. I mean there is a place of Alexander the Great And so you make a threat to destroy them. Nobody seems just to brief the president to say this as a war crime And of course now it's been pointed out and instead of backing down he's doubled out doubled down on saying yeah. That's what he's GonNa do the Secretary of State Who really is not doing his job? He needs to be speaking strongly about this instead. He stuck in the question. Incidentally what people need to understand is that trump is putting American servicemen and women in great danger danger because if if I if trump orders the destruction of monuments which is a war crime MHM that is being illegal order and those who carry out and illegal water order are themselves responsible for the crime. And so you've got put American servicemen and women then in the position of having to choose between an order from their commander in chief and they'll bang the law. Yeah that that is a the Obviously sort of the classic difficult position into which to put anybody in a military situation you know and a- and what is your expectation dare. Do you think that there would be some kind of a a rebellion at that point among the troops. Well this of course would presumably in order to to to The Air Force to carry out bombing raids on these monuments young cultural monuments sprayed very Whether there would be resumed. I hope there would be resistance or refusal so from the top leaders of the military and out the air force and from the pilots. You have to imagine you know supposed to You had a presidential order to to gun down a hundred children would would a soldier actually carry that out. I I don't think so I I mean I. I think the training that we have indicates while the the president's the commander in chief that he is he does not have the power to make an illegal order and this is clearly clearly something that's illegal. Yeah boy that would that. and to hear the the president's rhetoric about this as well Sulamani killed some people and therefore you know I mean it sounds like these are just you know religious icons or whatever the is housed in various cultural locations. Shins that he's talking about here as in they're they're they're less important but But but that that that really does raise some very the very Tricky issues and and I just wonder I mean again. Nobody knows how this is GonNa go play Apple. Let me ask you about one possible. We'll scenario I'm not saying it's a strong possiblity but Brighton. Quite frankly one that I think a lot of us would prefer which is that. Iran looks at the situation. Now and says You know they've poked sticking our I we are going to Stand down because we don't want to mess with this immense military power that the united any state possesses and they don't really retaliate Any chance of that. There's a chance of it. The the smart strategy for the Iranians would be to to to appear to be be reasonable party against the unreasonable unreasonable..

We'd be a lot better off that way and up and listen why I am Mike. I want you to hang on for one because I have a question for you. I'm trying to. I'm trying to balance the the interest interest of the United States in going to war in other words. There's gotta be some upside for somebody and how Rama was just saying. It's big upside for military contractors actors and weapons manufacturers who get to sell their stuff and make money and and and what people don't remember is the downside talk about. I mean you say you say Agent Orange has done you in And obviously you know a lot of people point to Vietnam as a model of the kind of war that was mainly about You know pumping up the military industrial complex and didn't really accomplish much et CETERA. But but the you know when you think about the downside for individuals like you and and as you mentioned burn pits and how sick people have gotten as reload of chemical exposures there It's it's really Just I I think people people need to focus more on the costs and it's difficult to convince the majority of people that because not everybody knows somebody who has lived with the effects of Agent Orange through the subsequent forum awful. Yeah tell it tell me about that. I mean what is what is what have been the health effects in your life of that exposure about eleven or twelve years ago I came down with diabetes. No have neuropathy and I are I've always had tonight us from the artillery and stuff. Yeah hear me I have hearing loss. I I've got Several different things all caused from basically from eight and orange. Yeah and and I mean you know obviously asleep This impulse to want to thank you for your service. I doubt that would even really resonate with you very much. Because certainly your services cost you just so much more than than most Americans are are aware of her or really know about or frankly I think cases care about and that's and that's one of the things that makes this too easy to isn't it doesn't it kind of the fact that most of the public is is is unaware of what you and your thousands of fellow veterans suffer after coming back from on these wars. That does make it easier. Doesn't it when I go down to the Va.. And I talked to. Other guys are affected by Agent Orange. And now these new guys The younger generation affected burn pets.

But I do think if you're talking about political effectiveness that that there are ways of expressing oneself that that maybe are more likely to result in in in actual chief. I agree with you. I think every indication is that she's obviously incredibly talented and diligent, and she'll you know absorb it. And I think also not only strategically but legitimately. I think she's. Actually, clearly, very empathetic person who's interested and engaged. And I will all say, you know, I didn't think I would contribute money to anybody. Besides Bernie Sanders, and it wasn't much, but it felt very satisfying to to contribute money to her congressional committee. And I hope everybody else will do the same because she needs. I think I mean, this is a a flaring. But I mean ongoingly she's going to need to she's going to need an enormous amount of solidarity and support the fight back against all of just the lies and base bigotry that will be targeted at her. Yeah. Well, the other thing to say, though, is that what she's done is. I think enormously useful. Yes. In the sense that the Nancy Pelosi's think, they're progressive and have never done anything at all. For for the the the oppressed Palestinians who are stateless right and in some instances under siege. In in other instances are actively having their. Property and the right stolen from the abide by armed Israeli squatters on their land and Pelosi won't admit this has never admitted it goes to a pack and talks about how the alliance with Israel is essential to being American which is exactly the kind of thing that L Hano mart was complaining about and the democratic establishment has to come to terms with the reality of the occupation. Which is not going away, which is going to produce more and more crises in my nightmare. Is that some some way somehow the Israeli fire, right? We'll find a way to destroy the dome of the rock and the most up some osc. And and and I have I think they have no idea what that's going to produce in the greater Muslim world because you know, in Iraq the. The Peter Galbraith. So that the most successful act of terrorism in Iraq killed no one which was the the blowing up of the Samara golden dome, which was sacred to Shiites, and they kicked off in two thousand six massive civil war in Iraq and people care about these religious symbols in ways that I think secular pundits don't understand. So there are lots of things about the occupation that could produce further conflict and very dire conflict. But that's the one that's for most in my mind. And so the, you know, the idea that we, you know, Mitt Romney and twenty twelve is asked about the was really then he said we'll just have to kick the can down the road.
