S did what it set out to do in Afghanistan, he told reporters. It's time to stop sending another generation of Americans to war with no expectation of a different outcome. We did not go to Afghanistan to nation Bill. And it's the right and the responsibility of Afghan people alone to decide their future and how they want to run their country. Longtime foreign policy analyst Aaron David Miller is with us now. Good morning. Good morning. Now where do you stand on the U. S withdrawal? Um, you know, it's a 20 year old year old war where the standard for victory in My judgment was never could we win. But when would we leave and what would would leave behind? And, frankly, um, extrication believing? Is not the standard by which you want to judge the political and military performance of probably the most consequential, uh, actor on Earth. The United States. I mean, this is the boldest and potentially riskiest foreign policy decision. Of the Biden presidency so far, and one that none of his three predecessors clearly we're prepared to take. He is prepared to take it. I just think, post withdrawal and nobody should be celebrating here but post withdrawal Is going to be a very ugly, um, picture to say the least. Let's talk about that. What do you mean, when you say ugly picture? What do you expect Afghanistan to look like after the United States or promised under several administrations quite a lot. It promised reconstruction. It promised women's rights it promised. Degree of economic dynamism for the country justice for the 9 11 Attackers. And the promotion of democracy. Most of that, with the exception of killing Osama bin Laden and weakening Al Qaeda have all fallen flat. And the majority of the country. Afghans remain poor and disenfranchised. You have a kleptocratic elite. That scrambled to salvage its privilege and to maintain itself in power, So I think most of those goals will be revealed. As not a temple. Uh, you're going to have a high degree of domestic turmoil and violence whether Kabul falls quickly. We're in six months or not at all. It's just not the picture that Americans hope to see, and it's going to remain a poster child for the president. Highly politicized, warm, I suspect, um largely by Republicans and critics of the president. As to why we should not have withdrawn. There are also a lot of Afghans who bought into these ideas that the Americans brought with them that the country should be more democratic that the country should be freer, particularly women who have gained rights over the last couple decades. What does the United States so two Afghan civilians who had like women who had no rights under the Taliban? You know, it's it's a moral hazard, and the president yesterday in his remarks delivered some pretty hard truths. He said he would continued it speak up about the rights. Of of Afghan women, but he also made it unmistakably clear that future of women Democracy. Human rights in Afghanistan is largely a measure for the Afghans to decide so Broken promises to be sure, and a lot of a lot of hard and bloody truth yet to be delivered.

Following the collapse of the 12 storey condominium in Surfside, Florida, Local governments are cracking down on buildings that are behind on their required inspections and repairs in Miami Beach alone, more than 500 buildings are undergoing emergency inspections. Danny Rivero of member Station W. L R N has the story of how one Condo board is struggling to meet the deadline since the Champ Lane Tower South condo collapse in Surfside. Katia Essen has been obsessively reading the news about what led up to it. It also feels very familiar, the inspection reports. Communication problems with the town of Surfside, the bickering on the condo board that delayed decision making and the pushback from residents to pay for needed repairs. Our condo is much, much smaller, but we have the same Issues, basically, and I mean, we're going through exactly you know, the 40 year re certifications Right now, this building the previous sports have not done anything I would really say for like 20 years. Nothing was done in this building, and now we're facing everything. Things like roof repairs, an upgrade to the electrical system and patching up the concrete. Essen is on the condo board at the Shore Apartments building in Miami Beach. The pastel pink three story building is right on the water. It was built in the 19 forties and his historically protected Essence says everything about maintaining it has been a struggle. It is just every step is a nightmare.

You've Schakowsky joined the condo board because she was passionate about preserving the property. I dream of the day where I could just resigned from the board and never think about it again. Um, for now, I'm volunteering. Because I feel that it's needed. And it's kind of attitude. If not me, then who the power and dynamics of condo boards are in the spotlight after the Surfside collapse. In Florida, the agency that regulates condo boards has a tiny budget $7.5 million in a state with about 4.5 million condo units. It's ridiculous, and I've said it since the first day that I got elected. It's ridiculous. Democratic State Senator Jason Pizzo, whose district includes Surfside, Says the level of government oversight for condo boards has to be fixed. It's basically something where Florida has just for so long bent over backwards to incentivize development. To be completely subservient to Sort of go it alone and property rights as opposed to. I'm not a huge fan of overregulation, but we're talking about life safety issues. Condo boards do have existing legal obligations under Florida law. If there are safety problems, they must address them, and that's what concerns catch us in at the shore apartments. Condo boards don't always know what they're doing, she says. And they need help. Especially after the tragedy at Champlain Tower South and Surfside. If I would have been on that board, you know what would I've done? Different would I would. I've understood the warnings correctly would have known. You know what? The engineer what they're telling me would I would have been able to push quickly enough, You know, but then also our experience here. Things go so slow. I can understand why things took so long.

Our condo is much, much smaller, but we have the same Issues Basically that I mean, we're going through exactly you know, the 40 year re certifications Right now, this building the previous ports have not done anything I would really say for like 20 years. Nothing was done in this building, and now we're facing everything. Things like roof repairs, an upgrade to the electrical system and patching up the concrete. Essen is on the condo board at the Shore Apartments building in Miami Beach. The pastel pink three story building is right on the water. It was built in the 19 forties and his historically protected Essence says everything about maintaining it has been a struggle. It is just every step is a nightmare. The shore apartments is more than a year behind on its recertification. Basically verifying that it's safe. Buildings need to do this once they reach 40 years old in Miami Dade County. And once every 10 years after that, you Katrina you've Schakowsky joined the condo board because she was passionate about preserving the property. I dream of the day where I could just resigned from the board and never think about it again. For now, I'm volunteering because I feel that it's needed. And it's kind of attitude. It's not me, then who the power and dynamics of condo boards are in the spotlight after the Surfside collapse. In Florida, the agency that regulates condo boards has a tiny budget $7.5 million in a state with about 4.5 million condo units. It's ridiculous, and I've said it since the first day that I got elected. It's ridiculous. Democratic State Senator Jason Pizzo, whose district includes Surfside, Says the level of government oversight for condo boards has to be fixed. It's basically something where Florida has just for so long bent over backwards to incentivize development. To be completely subservient to Sort of go it alone and property rights as opposed to..

We're working with our local community partners to offer some free emotional and psychological resiliency training. Regional disaster officer Ryan that, Logan says these courses actually help residents assess themselves recognized trauma and the families and speak to kids about what's going on with this tragedy. They are working to finalize some locations where the training will be held and at 605, residents of the 12 Storey condo and Surfside, which collapse were allegedly told that the complex was safe. Despite reports said it had major structural damage. Dan Shechtman reports in an April letter the condo board president writing when you can visually see the concrete cracking, that means the rebar, holding it together is rusting and deteriorating beneath the surface. The board recommending repairs totalling more than $16 million Champlain Towers South was built in 1981 and was undergoing a roof replacement when half the building came down early last Thursday morning. Now. This collapse could lead to a major overhaul of building regulations at the state level. North Miami Beach State Senator Jason Pizzo said he'll file legislation to ensure the safety of older buildings, especially high rise beachfront condos. Aventura State representative Joe Gallagher tells USA today that Pizarro's effort will likely meet resistance. But if anything is ever going to get done, it better be done now.

"Of punctuations and different times intermittently at some signs of hope into the First daylight hours, they were still hearing a voice of a woman and firefighters were were speaking to her and trying to continue to communicate until they no longer heard the voice through the first full day. Car alarm went off, and it wasn't like like a short, continuing pattern. That was that was the game. So there was a real hope in that one because it was sort of intermittent and random patterns And then it was found out when guys jumped in there to go see what it was in the parking garage was actually just water trickling back and forth and causing a short There's been some other really sort of eerie situations. We have one of the one of the victims daughters that struggled with a couple times. She keeps getting phone calls from the landline of her mother's unit. Now her mother's areas completely destroyed. There was obviously a shorter and from the call box or something. You may be offside or remote. But I mean, how does that not tug of your heartstrings? When you see mom's number? Come up on your phone, and she keeps getting them. And I after you know, if you would like me to Steve Dry, you get him turned off you. Honestly? No, I don't You know to me, That's Some sort of hope. I'm joined by Florida State Senator Jason Pizzo, who serves the Surfside area in South Florida. And we're talking about the continued fallout from the condo collapse there. The search and rescue operators I know they've been going 24 7 trying their best to find any signs of life. How are they holding up? There's obviously you know, was of Manhattan resident during 9 11 2 uncles are fire fighters, one of whom was actually a 9 11 responder. You know, I'm seeing the same kind of, um, to look on their faces the former prosecutor here in Miami Dade to handle shootings and homicides, and it wears on you. Um and when, when we're talking about a of other Tremendous, you know, amount of people and lives and families and stories. It's just, you know, it's it's exponentially greater than then sometimes seen that has one or two victims and Brian, I'll tell you the really the big difference of all the sort of crime scenes I've been to in places that have, you know, had disaster occurring. There is no immediate villain. Right now. There's no bad guy. There's no terrorism that you know, there's nothing immediately nefarious that happened, you know. And the bittersweet part of this whole thing is that everybody sort of working together people that we attack and fight with on Twitter, holding games and putting their arms around each other myself included. It definitely seems like, especially when it comes to the politics down there. There is very much an atmosphere of bipartisan cooperation. Just whatever the people of Surfside, whatever the family members and friends of those who are missing whatever they need, that everyone is there for them, and also to ultimately get answers as to how something like this could possibly happen here in the United States. And it's it's likely to be, you know, a combination of factors. It's not only the design and construction materials used, but we need to be really mindful. And you know when colleagues call from the Senate and the House In the state Legislature and asking what can I do? What can I do? You know, after they asked twice, I said, keep an open mind and please don't have a short term memory. We need to take a hard look at the structures that Were built in a time that perhaps best practices, you know, then avail themselves. This building was built the exact same calendar year as another condo collapsed. Catastrophe happened in Brevard County in couple Beach, March, 27th 1981. And there was an extensive reporting findings afterwards about designing construction failure. So for me, it's not just the building in a vacuum standing alone and also its placement and location, the geography of it If you're in an area sitting on Facebook and top of beach with the high water table in a city like this that has recurring flooding all the time. For whatever reason, um and has salt water intrusion in corrosive elements. You have to imagine that the the structure itself the integrity is is going to, you know, have accelerated deterioration as compared to something that's built 30 miles inland somewhere high and dry. How concerned are other residents in Surfside and and maybe even in surrounding towns and cities, counties about their high rise potentially being At risk. Are you hearing that from your constituents? We are mean we are. You know, I probably represents 15 cities like you know, and I have all of Miami Beach. I have all of Surfside. I have all of Sunny Isles Beach. They Harbour Island, South Harbor, North Bay Village. Real condo intense and have the majority of my district or condo structures. I live in a condo with, you know, with my family. Um, but, you know, we're really trying to impress upon people is not to be, uh, you know, we don't want to create survey hysteria. Now you have to balance it politically. I think the mayor I think county Mayor has done a very good job of saying we're immediately going to be addressing buildings are the same. Age and height and so on and so forth at the same time, not trying to face to Syria. If you're in a building that was built the last 25 30 years completely different construction schedule because Hurricane Andrew itself in 92 also change the Florida building code extensively. So you know there was a voluntary evacuation, even though the sister building you know if you're living in that building like this can happen here as well. However. The superintendent of the building for many years. That collapse told a local reporter that there was always water intrusion. He's always constantly, you know, trying to maintain and replace pumps to get the water out of the out of the parking space with sort of bubble. However, his counterpart at the sister building said he was always your phone drive. So you know, Mother nature underneath climate change, You know, whatever the contributing factors. You know, people should not. It's not be hysterical. Obviously, it's very easy to say that, but what we are hearing is, you know and what headlines for the media. Sometimes it's my building safe. You know, there are a number of issues. I'll tell you that the climate that we're in a building collapsing like this is an extraordinary event. I'm the good way, obviously, but you know, there are more appreciated factors. Whether it's mold or mildew, or, you know things collapsing inside of the unit is far more of a danger right now, the people's health and life safety. I'm joined by Florida State Senator Jason Pizzo.

You can follow him on Twitter. He's done just a fantastic job updating the community and everyone really on what's happening down in Surfside at S E N pizzo again. That's his Twitter handle when it comes to this particular building that collapsed. Did you ever hear anything about issues with that building? Are you hearing from constituents and residents or former residents? That maybe there were more red flags than perhaps we've known over the years are realized. One of the one of the issues in the dynamics that play with association with board members, especially is kind of self policing it away, and they don't have a heightened duty or obligation that extends beyond the basic by the history obligation. It's sort of like a mutual company, so to speak. You know if there's a lawsuit, the resident you know, sometimes saying lawsuit there's little incentive outside of having general concern of reporting these things. But we have not done a very good job of establishing a structure where notice. You know, Certified or actual notice, uh, to another government entity itself. Remember, these are volunteers. All association doesn't matter. Super luxury, or you know, or, you know, lower income. Whatever it is. These are voluntary position. There really is no sort of public duty like there is for elected officials and a lot of the stuff that we filed on as it relates to condos over the past couple years Legislature Seeks to heighten sort of duty and obligation. Now, most of the complaints we get we get complaints every single day by email by text by boat Ball to our office is used typically related to the production of records or finances or election issues. I left up Inside of associations. Now, if you have an association that wants to retain their position, you know almost in perpetuity until the Legislature the wisdom to put caps on over 10 years, But if you want these people to remain in these people want to remain in position. They're going to artificially suppressed association. I'll give you a perfect example. You have the time. A couple of years ago we had yet again It looked like it was a perennial thing, but I was fairly new. But the issue came up of the retro fitting and installation of what sprinkler system in older buildings over a certain height. You know they were just not compliant or the code at the time didn't require it. And there was for life safety issues. What seemed like a legitimate push to to mandate that you retrofit buildings with sprinkler system because certain ladders can't reach that high people are building, however. You have to balance that with Well, you had associations that you know, sort of artificially like I said, Suppressed association peace for so long. They were not fiscally responsible. They did not put enough away in reserves and when estimates came out in the middle of session as to what this would cost The average condo person looking at 10 $12,000. And you have the elderly, You know, constituents on fixed income and all of a sudden you get settled at assessment. It's like, all right, I have to Legitimately ask myself Do I want to be the legislator? That both? No on this bill, and then doctor did someone's grandmother dies in an apartment fire? You know you don't wanna be in that position. However, the the more realistic and instant kind of detriment is going to be the thousands of people who it's cost prohibitive to go ahead and retrofit the building and what seems more sort of realistic and the practical result of of making a mandate like that is going to be displacing people out of phones they can no longer afford. In the effort of saving somebody. Now, nobody ever wants to go through that balancing tricks. So Brian when I'm really looking at for all of these things, whether it's a tightening of sort of re certifications of making it more comprehensive, accelerating the timeline from 40 years 20 years Right now. This re certification process is only applicable to Miami Dade and Broward County, not to the 65 other counties, especially the coastal ones, which are most concerned, but the actuary Add insurance company who ensure these buildings. It is nourished to their benefit to really know the physical plant the structure of the buildings that they're ensuring and if they if they believe At these inspections, you know, you know warrants either having to raise the premium there. Actuaries and engineers tell them you know their fatal flaws and buildings and stuff like that. That.

"I'm Ryan Gorman with me this evening, James Berland er on the board. We've got a packed show for you tonight, and we're going to spend a lot of time to start the show on the horrific situation down in South Florida. The collapse of that condo building in Surfside Because we really haven't had time to spend on it over the past few days Friday, we didn't have a show yesterday, We were live at Emily Arena for Game one of the Stanley Cup finals. So I want to dive into that. This evening. We're to talk to former state and federal prosecutor David Weinstein about some potential lawsuits that could come as a result of that condo collapse. We're going to talk to a military reporter for the Washington Post about the challenges of these kinds of search and rescue missions. He talked to a number of individuals who have been involved in these missions around the World, so we'll get a sense of what that's like, and we'll talk about the politics of all of this, of course, with the publisher of Florida politics Peter Schorsch right now, let's go to the high line and let me bring in Florida State Senator Jason Pizzo, who represents the people of Surfside, who's been down there on the scene for days now, Senator Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us. I know things are really busy, so we do Appreciate it. And I guess the place I want to start is when you first arrived on the scene. We've all seen the pictures. We've seen the horrific video of the condo collapsing. But when you're there when you first see the aftermath in person What was it that was going through your mind? Um, it was a mix of emotions, um, also familiar with crime scenes. But this is not like that. It's completely somber, Um, their massive piles of concrete slab rebar in it, and hurricane windows and doors and Railings and balconies in furniture and personal items, and it's just it's completely from first sight and they're getting better now, but it was just completely pancaked and to see Look up at what remains the number of stories that remain realize that's only like one third of what's actually in the pile from the entire building structure and to see the pile compact it so tightly successfully as each four goes closer together. Um it's devastating. How? Having been there on the ground for the past couple of days? What has the mood been like? Is it still somewhat hopeful that we might see a miracle that a survivor could be pulled out of that rubble or as time goes on? Is that hope starting to wane a bit Of the few 1000 cubic yards of debris has been removed. Nothing is substantially changed really, to the bottom most position of the pile, But I mean by that is You know, there was a young boy that was saved Mother initially as well. She later died. Stacey. Thanks. Um, And then I waited through it the first night until the first body was recovered and recovered from near a top floor sort of situation. On top of the pile. The body was intact, but but seemingly crushed, suffering severe trauma. And then you know you wonder to yourself. Well, that's an area that have the greatest spacing between Floors on the pile, and they successfully get smaller. I mean, Ryan, there's there's You know, Floors seven through five that you can see There's no space and really at all. And you know the entire apartment furnishings are compacted, so Violently that the slabs are together. So yes, there's been sort of punctuations and different times intermittently of some signs of hope into the First, um, daylight hours. They were still hearing a voice of a woman and firefighters were speaking to her and trying to continue to communicate until they no longer heard the voice. Through the first full day.

The president is reportedly going to propose a major tax increase on the most wealthy and wealthy investors. The White House isn't talking about the details or specifics just yet. They say this is all still in flux. But they're stressing the president's commitment not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000 a year. Yeah, I mean it. It's all an interesting dynamic, right? I mean, how many times have we had proposed tax increases and then other proposed tax increases and the one that is the most offensive is attacks on investment? There should be a zero rate of tax on any investment. Zero. You go. Well, why would that be? What is money invested drive from Have you not already earned that money and in the process of earning that money? Have you not already paid taxes on it? So then, when you invest that money, and you have risk that's associated with it. Is that not a disincentive when you tax it further, is it not a greater disincentive as that tax rate goes higher. Relative to risk That ultimately becomes the question now, yesterday Mark has got hit a bit on this today. The markets are rebounding earning season has been phenomenal. So you get some of this stuff going on to kill of silver, the editor in chief of investor PD, a is joining us now the kind of talk about this for things out. Especially we have a capital gains right? That goes close to 40%. What that might look like. At Caleb Silver on Twitter. All right, Caleb. So your your thoughts about raising the tax on investment, potentially the 39.6%. The rumor is for those that earn a million or more. Right. So this is attacks directed squarely at the top 1% of the 1% of really the point over 3% of the top 1% folks that urn that have income over a million dollars or more its attacks on their capital gains. So just on the asset that they sell their stocks or other hard ass is that they sell. That would be a huge increase from about 20% to about 40%. Actually, 43% of you had 3.4% kicker to fund Obama care. So it be a big race and the biggest race since those taxes went down to 20% in 2000 and three But again, this is just a fraction of some of the highest earning people in America and these people. They all happen to own about 90%, the top 10% of all about 90% of the stock market so people will feel it across the higher income spectrum. The idea is that it would pay for some of these social services that Biden has been promising since he was on the campaign trail. Yeah. I mean, it doesn't come close description this for physical literally confiscate 100% of the everything that's earned by the top 1% and not cover deficit. So it is, uh, it is no doubt. I mean, you know, frame that way, but certainly in terms of achieving that objective, it's It's not plausible, Caleb the impact that you think it could have on the market in particular. Get the word to pass. Yeah, So I think a lot of investors have been sitting on a very big gains for a very long time. As I said the capital gains tax rate spending 20% since President books put it there and 4003 to help us get out of the September 11 cause recessions. So it's been there, And in that time we've had a couple of bear markets. But the stock market has been an absolute beast. People have made a ton of money. And now we have more millionaires than we've ever had more billionaires than we've ever had. So it'd definitely produce him. Well, too, I think will be a massive sell up. Yeah, I do think that you'll see some long term investors start to release some of those gains. That they've been holding onto in anticipation of this at the same time. Where else are you going to find yield, But the stock market so I don't see a massive sell off here, and also so many people have piled into the stock market in the past few years, especially in the past year that I don't see a mass exodus from it.
