John Zmirak: You Fight Where the Enemies Are Attacking

"John Z rack, we're talking about the articles you've written at stream dot org. We're talking about the nation. I still am astonished that most in the governing class, even the good guys have been silent about what happened on January 6th. It's though the pressure to be silent has never been stronger on anything. And that is precisely how you know this is where to fight. The Germans were pouring through the Ardennes forest. That's where the pressure was. That's where the French and British Army should have been in 1940. Instead, it was up in Belgium and the Netherlands accomplishing nothing. And that's how you ended up with the Dunkirk evacuation. When the enemy and let's be clear, they are our enemies. When our ruling class are enemies, wherever they are putting pressure, that is where you push back. When the Nazis are pouring in through the Ardennes, you go fight in the Ardent. Are Nazis here in America, are domestic Nazis who want to steal our rights, who want to like George W. Bush equate the January 6th peaceful protesters with the September 11th hijacking murderers when our enemies are pressing on January 6th. That is where we have to press back. You send your troops to fight, we're the Nazis are attacking you. You don't go fight where it's easiest where they're not fighting. You don't go man the Maginot line. You fight where they are attacking.

Robyn Pfaffman: GOP Senators Who Passed Omnibus Bill Need to Go

"President Trump coming out earlier today and he is fired up over these 18 Senate Republicans who voted for the massive omnibus and an in doing so tied the hands of McCarthy and the Republicans in the House. He says they all need to be primaried. They gotta go. Agree or disagree. Agree a 1000%. They all need to go again, they're rhinos, and they're part of the group think. And they just go along to get along. They're a part of what Trump famously calls the swamp and the swamp has a lot of creatures in it that are very ingrained in below the sea level, right? You don't want to stick your foot in the swamp because it might get bitten off. And these are the people that just go along to get along. You know, Todd, you and I know these people personally, some of them. And they are afraid to come out and speak their mind. They may think something differently privately when the door is closed, but they're going to go along with the crowd. And you know, you see this in all levels of life, you know, whether you're in elementary school or high school or a university student or in the workplace, where someone will say, well, what do you think and people are really afraid to voice what they think? And that's how you have these 18 Republicans who did what they did in the Senate. And it terrible. 87,000 IRS agents associated 7000 needs to be down at the border. And speaking of the border Todd, while we're talking because you know that's my number one issue, having been through September 11th and all these people that are creeping into our country that we have no accounting for. Yesterday was completely bogus. I was ashamed. It was shameful. It was just shameful. Robin,

"She is Judy Kelly and the site is American greatness. Julie, happy new year, welcome back to America first. Happy new year, sad, as always, thank you so much for having me and for continuing to cover this issue. Absolutely. That's why we are here very special day where we continue to bang the drum for the truth. It's weird, though, if president Trump will responsible for September 11th, why was this of that? I'm a little confused. Can you help me out, please? You mean the comparable 9 11 January 6th that he's responsible for allegedly for? Yes, exactly. You know, first, let's enjoy for a moment. The title former representative Liz Cheney. But look, what this whole report and what the entire committee crusade was about was another get Trump. Witch hunt. And what's interesting, Seb is that the final report that was delayed numerous times and then finally issued right before Christmas is under criticism, not just from our side, but also from Democrats and even publications like mother Jones on the left. Because it did not fulfill shockingly. It's legislative mission, which to your point is to get to the truth, get to the bottom of a really what happened on January 6th. You had 8 chapters that solely focused on Donald Trump and what he did in the months before on and after January 6th. Seth, the part about security, the security failures, which was part of the legislative mission, was buried in an appendix at the end of the report. This got the attention, as I said, of not just people on our side, which we were expecting this. But also people on the left, who somehow were diluted into believing this was a legitimate investigation. And not a cover up of January 6th. And another never Trump effort to take down Donald Trump.

Sacred sites see development on this week's AP Religion Roundup.

"Sacred sites see development on this week's AP religion roundup. A church reopens at ground zero and a Jordan River baptism site may soon see a new village. More than two decades after a tiny Greek Orthodox church in Lower Manhattan was destroyed in the September 11th attacks, that church is far grander replacement open to the public this week. Michael sorrows helped organize the new saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox church and shrine. The national shrine completes the Trinity at ground zero. You have the museum. You have the reflecting polls, but now faith has been restored to ground zero. Say Nicholas is in an elevated park overlooking the rebuilt trade centers memorial Plaza. Olga Pablo says it has been a long time coming. 21 years, a lot of hardships, a lot of ups and downs, but we finally made it. Meanwhile, another building project is being planned on the banks of the Jordan River near the traditional baptism side of Jesus. This is worried some who want to preserve the area's character. Samir murad tears the organization planning the development. The baptism site itself is a Unesco World Heritage protected site. And will remain in its pristine condition as it has done for the past 2000 years. The Jordanian government donated about 340 acres of land for the development of the area known as Bethany beyond the Jordan. Tradition says John the Baptist, baptized Jesus here in what became Christianity's third holiest site. Many modern day visitors Don white robes and immerse themselves in the sacred waters, the development work will kick off with a sustainable village near the historic site. Later stages will see the introduction of botanical gardens, a bird sanctuary, and a wellness center. Historian Ian torrhen says preservation in the midst of development is crucial. Part of the listing is to preserve the site in its wilderness state, not turn it into something which is over commercialized, but to retain its spirituality. I'm Walter ratliff.

What's Going on With the New York Governor's Race?

What's Going on With the New York Governor's Race?

"From New York Charlie, what's going with the New York governor's race? It sure seems like Lee zeldin is closing in, what do the latest polls show? So on September 11th, Kathy holker had a 6 point lead against Lee zeldin. Now remember the backstory here, Andrew Cuomo was a very popular Democrat governor until he became a problem for the regime, and they took him out. Kathy hochul took office, no one knew who she was. Crime in New York is way up, inflation is way up in New Yorkers are ready to give the middle finger to the Democrat party. Now there is a new poll from coefficient poll. Now, I've never heard of this polling agency coefficient poll. Can you guys tell me if it's, I don't know if it leans right or left? I don't know. But it shows Lee zeldin, Republican running for governor of New York in the lead. By one point. This is one of the deepest blue states in the country. And you see Lee zeldin up one point in the latest New York governor's poll. Why is this happening? Let's remind ourselves play cut a hundred New York City announces the beautiful. Luxurious. Well, tailored. Well funded centers for illegal criminals that march into your country and your city, they get treated better than our homeless vets. Play cut 100. When migrants first walk in after intake, they will see a recreational room set up with rows of couches, TVs, xboxes, and board games. There will also be a phone bank so migrants can connect with family in order to find more permanent housing. Next, there is a cafeteria that will provide migrants with three meals a day and snacks, coffee and tea will be available 24/7. Those meals are all culture appropriate. It is South American fare. The senselessness of the crime happening in New York City is remarkable. People getting shoved in front of subways on the platform. What is the point of that? They're not stealing money. No, they want to see other people suffer.

Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani Unpacks the Trauma of 9/11

"You know, it's amazing. You didn't have death by panic. Do you think of all these even things where it's only a thousand people trying to get out of a theater and ten people die of panic. You had thousands and thousands of people get out. Nobody jumped on each other and nobody jumped over each other. That's a credit to your firefighters and police officers. That's the kind of conversations I get, but it almost always begins with. Oh, I was, I was on vacation. I was on vacation in the mountains, and I didn't know about it for a day. It's so terrible I missed the whole first day or the or. One of my best Friends works at Fitzgerald and I was so worried and then I said, well, what happened to your friend? And sometimes they'll say, well, they made it out or sometimes they died and I said, I'm terribly sorry. But there's almost a compulsion to identify where you were on that day. And I remember in my parents generation. How often they told me over and over again, where they were on the day and the moment they found out about where my father was when my mother was a Friends would tell you where they were on Pearl Harbor. And then I think that happened with the Kennedy assassination too. So yeah, there's no question that it's one of the significant events that has shaped us in ways that I'm not sure. I don't think we know yet, exactly how we shaped us. I really do believe. I mean, a lot of people look back on the Kennedy assassination. And they think a lot of the disruption, a lot of the social disruption that took place in the 60s and the 70s, some of it was caused by that. I do think that some of what we're going through is caused by September 11th. So, you know, some of the very strange different ways our patterns have changed. And I think it's going to fix itself, but it's a traumatic experience. We're

"I'm hoping that the moment of silence helped us reflect on what happened in September 11th, I know that some people that are listening maybe a small fraction of people that listen wasn't even alive when the terrorist attacks on 9 11 happened, I think it was a pivotal moment in our country, it was a moment of sadness, a moment of devastation, many people lost their lives, and I also believe that from the ashes grew a yearning for unity and for our country to become greater and fight back together, and I think that it had some benefits. And when I say benefits, I think it encouraged us to work together and do better. I really do believe that that's what happened and unfortunately it took a scenario of chaos in order for our country to come together and stay strong. You know, there's a concept out here that wars are what cause America to come together because we find common ground and we celebrate our first responders and, you know, it causes us to come together in a way in which nothing can ever match.

You couldn't spend more than a couple of minutes on September 11th, 2001, we are forgetting September 11th. We are forgetting what those evildoers did to our country. We are teaching kids about everything but 9 11. And young people have absolutely zero appreciation for not only the destruction of 9 11, but how unified we were, we forgot what that felt like.

"Selena, you wrote a wonderful moving remembrance of shanksville. And the passengers that fought back into the hijacking on 9 11. It was really a marvelous column. First thing I posted, maybe one of the few things I posted about 9 11 because there's a lot of imagery, but I like people to read about it. How is the reaction to that? No, I received a lot of emails, a lot of direct messages. I really wanted to focus shanksville is not far from where I live. And it's the only place on September 11th outside of New York and Washington that was hit. But there was this makeshift memorial that began because I mean, I don't know this is a fast, but I assume this happened because the family members of the men and women that were on flight 93, each brought something on September 17th when they went to visit the site and they left it there. And all that was there was some mud and some hay that they put on top of this little mound of hell that overlooked the crash site. But within days, people started coming there, sort of like a pilgrimage almost. And they left a partisan themselves there. I'm

Guest Host Grant Stinchfield Shares a Story About 9/11

"Not believe that we are going to be now 21 years from the September 11th attacks. These attacks had such an effect on my wife. I grew up in New York. I was working for WNBC at the time. I was one of the first to ground zero, and let me just tell you a quick story. I had taken pictures of one of those disposable cameras from my time in and around ground zero, interviewing victims family members. I had all kinds of pictures. I put that camera in my briefcase. You know I never developed the photos. And I thought as long as I have that camera, I will never forget because I've got the photos. And if I start to feel myself forget, I could just develop the photos. And I could develop. Can you imagine we were really 21 years to come a long way, developing photos. Well, that briefcase, I left at a former office and had to have it sent to me in Dallas with the camera in it. Gets lost. My briefcase gets lost. It was a nice briefcase. I didn't care about that. I cared about the camera with my photos of September 11th. It was a huge loss for me, but I will tell you this. I realized very quickly, I was never going to forget. I didn't need the photos. One reason why I never forget is because of the people that were affected by that. I met a man named rob fazio. He was there with his brother and his other family members looking for his father, Ronald fazio, who was on the 99th floor of the south tower and managed to get his whole office out. When the first plane hit, the other building, he said, I want you all out of the building. Go, go home. Loudspeakers going off. Go back upstairs, go back upstairs. No. Back down. Go home. He gets out of the building. He's holding the door for others. The next plane hits. Ron senior's gone.

Jim Serger on Life's Pivotal, Uniting Moments

"You sense from your rotting of this book that maybe this was an interest that hopefully there'll be a remembrance because right now, you know, someone who served in Congress, someone who's been around we're divided right now and whether people want to admit it, not admit it, whatever we're divided. What about these stories? Do you think maybe could help some of the younger people who didn't have a member so that unity coming together? And also for some of us who are older to remind us of this. That's funny you should say that because I interviewed a college student. He is 20 years old. Oh, wow. And I said, what does 9 11 mean to you? He said, in the day, I was in a crib that my parents house. So I have any recollection of 2001. He said, but when I entered kindergarten, first grade second grade, I remember saying the Pledge of Allegiance, I remember saying a prayer for them, all the fallen soldiers, first responders. So in his story, it wasn't about the day, it was about what happened the years on September 11th after that that he remembers as a young man growing up. And that's funny you touch base on that because my daughter is a senior in high school. As a matter of fact, I was talking with somebody yesterday that's a little bit older than her. Maybe a little bit younger than your daughter. And she thinks that COVID was kind of like that because she remembered going to work and then all of a sudden the next day they said, don't come to work. We are shut down out of the clear blue. And she's like, what am I doing? And so she correlated that day when America's shut down to maybe this day. Is it the same? Absolutely not. But it's the same thing for them. It's something that resonates with them. So the older generation, you know, my father used to talk about Pearl Harbor from his dad. Right. And whatever my grandpa communicated to my dad is what my dad communicated to me. Right. And then Kennedy was assassinated just like you referred to. I have to hear that first thought from my dad because that was 1963. I wasn't even born yet. My dad remembers going home. They were all dismissed from the Catholic school hearing from Cincinnati. So everybody went home. And back then, you all walked, so it didn't matter if you had school buses back then. Everybody trudged through snow on November 22nd anyway. So it didn't really matter. But he remembers where it was. And then the challenger explosion that happened when I was a freshman in high school, I remember being in that moment. So everybody has those pivotal moments in their lives as Americans that unites us or makes us open up the communication airways more.

That was a day that it was interestingly enough in my life. I had set aside that I was going to spend the day, my wife was a teacher, the kids were all in school and I was just going to spend the day at home, you know, and really quiet solitude prayer and I was thinking about the future. Never did I know that that day would call from a friend would say, turn on your TV, in my life really, I think like a lot of our lives were frozen in time for a moment. This is the day that we look back on. It's the day that I think we draw can draw strength from, but it's also a day in which we remind us about role in the world, but also a remembrance of what was going on during that time.

Byron York: Presidential Job Approval Is a Good Indicator on Midterms

"Back. Byron York was on Fox News talking about Biden's epically horrible job approval numbers. And what that means for the midterm election. Now, this is conventional political wisdom, but I want to share with you anyway. I think presidential job approval is one of the main indicators. Predictors of how his party will do in midterm elections. And first of all, president first term presidents usually lose seats in the House in their first midterms. They just almost always do. We've had a couple of exceptions. One was in 2002 when the country was at wartime after September 11th with George W. Bush and Bush actually picked up some seats. The other was just four years earlier in 1998 during the Lewinsky scandal in which Republicans were impeaching president Bill Clinton and the public did not like that. Clinton had a very high approval rating and his party actually picked up seats. Every other time in decades and decades, the president's party loses seats and especially when the president's job approval is low, below 50%. Joe Biden is about 41, 42% right now. That's a little better than it was a couple of month or two ago when it got down to 37 or so. But still, that is really the range of job approval that leads to a big loss midterm election. And now, Byron, York is one of the best in the business. So he suggests it's as bad as it could get for Democrats.

It was them in. My eyes were brown people. I knew that lives would be lost. Just based upon the anger and the fear of patriots. I didn't feel good. I didn't iron browse watching one like cnbc or cnn town hall meeting there was a A they was interviewing first responders in folks in law enforcement. There was a gentleman who was who was quite shaken up by the events of the day for he was in law enforcement in in. I believe i can remember correctly. Had lost some his colleagues in in brothers and sisters in the september eleventh tragedy today before this may like a couple of days afterwards but he was angry in quite frankly he had a right to be but i watched as his anger spilled over and the interview took return as he went on to say that. We're going to get those towel heads. Who did this in. Some people were silent. Some people clapped in the audience. I was hurt. I grew up in a community that we have a whole lot of at least in my eyes. I didn't know. I didn't know a whole lot of people of the islam. Faith off the top. I i knew a couple but when you're in a small town in a red state in a very conservative small town. I'm not even sure we've had a mosque in springfield. I doubt we did my friends who are muslim. My brothers and sisters who are muslim even as a christian. I didn't really speak too much about the faith. I knew their faith was different. I remember being conflicted about their faith. Only from this aspect and basketball game. Lord's prayer in the lord's prayer is aligned with the christian faith and i remember thinking of seventh grade. Like why are we saying. The lord's prayer if my basketball teammates don't believe in christianity desk conflict for.

I set. I've been sitting for the national anthem for years. Even prior to the protests in recent years in colin kaepernick I've said in high school for the national anthem the national anthem.

Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, say people who have not been vaccinated against Covid 19 are much more likely to get sick and die from the disease from member station WSB in Atlanta, Sam Whitehead has more on a new report from the agency looking at infections and more than a dozen states of major cities. CDC researchers looked at more than 600,000 cases from early April through mid July. Agency head Doctor Rochelle will Inskeep says that timeline means the study captures some of the current wave driven by the Delta variant. Those who were vaccinated were about 4.5 times. More likely to get covid 19/10 times more likely to be hospitalized and 11 times more likely to die from the disease, Wolinski says. The study adds to many before it that showed the vaccination offers good protection against the coronavirus. This week, the Biden administration launched a new initiative to boost the U. S vaccination rate. For NPR NEWS. I'm Sam Whitehead in Atlanta man who threatened to shoot House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has pleaded guilty in federal court in Washington, D. C.

The following day, he sent a relative a text message in which he threatened to shoot Nancy Pelosi in the head on Live TV. The relative contacted MEREDITH's mother, and she got in touch with the FBI. Soon after agents located MEREDITH in a downtown D C hotel and found a handgun rifle in 2500 rounds of ammunition in his possession. MEREDITH Sentencing hearing is scheduled for December.

It's one of the earliest memories that i have and it's it really changed your perspective on things realizing that young like how vulnerable one really is. Thank you monica. Thank you for sharing your story. And it is remarkable to think about that being one of child's earliest memories. I appreciate you bringing that. I share. Bring that perspective. I think we have denied jim now of boston. University's party school. Are you there denisha. So tell us what you remember from september eleventh. Where were you when you found out about that first tower and what went through your head. Oh i was. I was shaving Getting ready to go to the university. And i remember i wife shouting out From from from the other room to come come in. I remember sort of running training out talking about things at home. And so two seeing the television right there Good sort of this shaving foam hof on my face. And i do remember because i've written about this. I my i actually hit. I hit the ball Just sort of this animal passion or whatever at what was happening so you know by like many people i my. My first image of it was an image on the television screen And those images that have since become sort of ingrained in in our in our mind The other thing ingrained in my mind was i'd right. They're thinking. Oh god don't don't don't don't don't let this fear muslim Doing this as a muslim myself and sort of was also sort of stacked that way personal. Maybe very personal if you will but But but it was. It wasn't a immediate understanding of not that what was happening horrendously on the television screen. Something even more horrendous than what was happening on the television screen. I feel like there's an hour for us that we don't have to talk about that moment. That feeling that thought. And then what ensued in the days in the weeks after. And so i i mean no disrespect when i ask you a summary thought but i'm going to ask you a summary thought when you look back on that now i mean what an incredible twenty years since. Then how do you think about it now. It is an incredible twenty years. It is an incredibly twenty years. And my my head and levity is that it's not just and just start only a twenty year that's incredible I don't think the the fires of of nine eleven have yet died nbc that in the world. I see that. In my life. I i teach as a school of international affairs. It's a daily story That that unfolds around the world without us always even recognizing it. But if i might one thing that that also remember which is important to the story is not just that moment but the many moments right after that and It does i think somewhat difficult to remember. Now that's right often that there was also a debate. Not just what had happened but about what needed to happen because of what had happened and this i think is the burden of all of us. Who lived through it that what happened because it was also not inevitable The right there on your station you know. Some many of my early appearances on this radio station would during those two or three weeks right after that as the word in this country sort of grappling with what had happened and try to chart out the what what was going to happen and dad was not inevitable and one does wonder Did you have to always have everything going forward as it. Did you have no way of knowing what other ways. It could have unfolded. But i think that is also the burden of history that we all carry. That is a deal. Najam dean of boston. University's party school of global studies. Will you come back and talk with us. More dean berkeley. certainly all. Thank you appreciate it mitch to return to you for. We've just a couple of minutes here before we go to a break. And i think i want to close with you by asking you. I feel like dna jim. Just captured. zeitgeist is not the right word. But it's the only word sitting for me right this moment of that time and the tensions and the conversations there were so many choices that were choices then that our history now can you just a few sentences. Reflect on that for me. It's such an important point. And i'm so glad he made it in you picked up on. It is lee. Were faced with An endless number of opportunities believe it or not as terrible as it was in that moment. How do you respond to a crisis of this this size. Do ask chris out for personal sacrifice you ask people to come together and do what's right for each other and for the world Or do you go to afghanistan with an eye toward iraq Do you cut taxes at a time when it wasn't necessary All those things. That's why a deal nauseam in the gym is is making such an important point. That's what he does every day at a party. School is review this and ask. How could we better as we do need to be better. There were mistakes made that we need to learn from with that in mind and with the history of the last twenty years and i understand that we're focusing on that day today but what's the next book that needs to be written about that time about about that time i you know i think afghanistan papers book that just came out Is exactly the right book for the moment. it's a book that people i don't think appreciated until now I think there's a story from nine eleven to one six i. That's what i would call the book Of of how we reacted as a as a society to nine eleven and how it links to What happened on one six. I think that's a book looking forward to reading.

And thank you. Thank you for listening and thank you for reading. Your support helps make possible everything we do. Now it's impossible to calculate all the many consequences of september eleventh to our lives to foreign and domestic policy into the shape of the country. But certainly the most immediate policy consequence was the united states is invasion of afghanistan. It began just weeks after the attacks and that long and bloody episode has now just ended the taliban which had sheltered al qaeda's leaders are fully in charge of that country once again. So what now the non. Hi hi how are you good thanks. You're in qatar. now i'm in panther. Yeah contributor unongo. Paul was in route to afghanistan. When i spoke with him. Kepala has reported extensively on the taliban and very few western journalists has spent so much time with its members and on many of the young taliban members who recently surged into kabul and into cities and towns all over afghanistan. They weren't even born when nine eleven happened. I wonder when they talk about nine. Eleven when they think about nine eleven this is an event that fundamentally shape their lives and they have no memory of it. How do they talk about it. Well david the remarkable thing. Is that most of them. Don't even know about nine eleven and many of them have no conception or the foggiest notion of it You know they'll say yeah. There was some attacks in the usa. But they don't really link nine eleven to what's happened in their country for the last twenty years. Why do they think. The united states came to afghanistan invaded afghanistan in the first place. You know it's interesting. I often ask taliban members and non members. Why do you think the. Us is here and they give all sorts of reasons from you know we have minerals here and you know the soviets wanted our precious metals and now the the us does to you know they just hate our way of life which always struck me as interesting because that was the frame that we were using on nine. Eleven here in the us. Of course it's different. When you get to the edge you know the sort of more elite taliban who who follow the news. But i'm talking about the rank and file taliban really don't see their conflict or their their struggle as having anything to do with september eleventh. Now here we are in late summer. Twenty twenty one and a taliban spokesman recently told the new york times we want to build a future and forget what happened in the past now having spent so much time in areas that are controlled by the taliban. What would you say is the likelihood of all that happening earlier this week. We saw the taliban use forced to break up a women's rights demonstration in kabul. And and while they speak of a kind of new policy whether it's about women or education or any number of other things how much is the taliban changed yeah. I think we should be very skeptical of these sorts of claims from the taliban leadership. I mean if you look at the point of view of your typical rank and file taliban member these are people who've really never left their village or their district. They've mostly seen or and violence if anybody's under the of twenty one who's into taliban that's all that known is fighting and war and you can imagine from their perspective. There's a number of family members who've been killed there's friends and comrades have been killed and what they're thirsting for revenge first of all secondly from their perspective. They say we won this war. We've marched into kabul. We took this outright. We don't need to concede anything to anybody and so from that milieu. There's really a sense. That taliban should be trying to return to the one thousand nine hundred eighty s and reinstate that government. I was there in the nineteen nineties without sharing power without making any concessions towards women's rights. And i'm afraid that that probably that element is the majority of the movement. There's a minority of the movement who say all the things who are a little bit more polished who spent time outside the country but they don't really have the power on the ground in other words. These were the people that spent time. In you know the ritz carlton of the world making agreements and a diplomatic meetings with with all kinds of western countries. But the people on the ground who are gonna make policy are not much different. Well i'm literally right now. A ritz-carlton waiting to interview officials so yes in doha. So exactly these are people. I mean i was thinking as as walking through the corridors of this hotel today if any taliban members on the ground in helmand could see the complete splendor. These there officials are living under. You know you'd wonder if the movement would even hold together. The taliban just named a number of people to top government posts and among them the head of the connie network was named acting minister of interior. What do you read into these kinds of appointments. Well i think it was looking at the ministry of the list of cabinet members. And what's striking about them. Is it almost every single. One had held a position in the nineteen ninety s government. Many of them have had experienced dealing with international community. So there's a lot of the taliban sort of network that was in doha that was negotiating with the us. A lot of them have ended up in ministerial positions. The same with the connie's connie network. They're very close to the pakistanis into the isi. This is pakistani intelligence. Pucks intelligence exactly. They're they're all the taliban factions. They're the closest to intelligence. But what's interesting about. This ministry list. Is that the most powerful members of the taliban the ones who are really running the insurgency for the last twenty years aren't on it which leads me to think that there's a this is kind of a shadow. Government is going to be behind this government. It's going to be the real power behind the throne as it were and this is kind of a government on paper. What kind of leverage does the united states have any longer in in in afghanistan among the taliban afghanistan is what political scientists call ren ta state. It's a state that gets almost all of its revenue from from abroad. So that's where the leverage exists. The problem of course is that that current alabama's only one current. There's also the other current that says well. We won this war in the nineties. Nobody recognized us. We had no support the international community. And you know we. We're going to do the same thing again. What does the future of the relations between the two countries. The united states in afghanistan with taliban charge will the us senate ambassador. Will we recognize the taliban. Should we recognize them. Can we negotiate with taliban any effective way. I think given that there are different kinds of the taliban The extent to which the international community tries to engage with pragmatic current he could empower that impr- pragmatic current against the hardliners. The real danger. Is that afghanistan's isolated. That is going to feed into the discourse of the hardliners. And then we're going to see. I think a much worse. Turn than what we've already seen. And i think the us recognizes this. I mean the problem right now is of course. This has been a pretty catastrophic defeat for the us and to rush to recognize the taliban. Now i think politically would not make sense. But there are back channel continuing backchannel contacts between the state department and the white house and the taliban leadership and there is a few days a conference being called by the united nations to look at how to deal with continuing aid to the country because it's a recognition that if aid is cut off we'll see a complete economic collapse a massive property crisis beyond which we've already seen and You know spiral downwards we hear talk of potential civil war yet again in in afghanistan. What is the potential for that and if it happens would the lineup be what we would decides be so you know. The taliban is very different today than it was in the ninety s where in the ninety s was really like this hard core. Click of melas are religious clerics from kandahar and helmand these southern provinces and it's really broadened and diversified in the last twenty years so it includes who's -beck's and even some hazaras and other ethnic groups. It's really a coalition today of tribes and clans and villages and what really held that coalition together over. The last twenty years is that they all felt in one way or another that they were marginalized from the post two thousand one order for various reasons so that was kind of coherent factor but now that factors gone because now they're in government so now they actually have to do a much harder thing which is to actually govern to distribute revenue fairly among these various groups to distribute ministerial post and patronage among these groups. And i think that is where the fault lines are probably going to emerge where there's groups that said okay. We were opposed to the previous afghan government. But now we're joined this government we don't want to be dominated by people from kandahar pushtoons from kandahar for example so there are real faultlines. They're they're already some signs at some of the ethic minority groups within the taliban are disaffected. So this is one potential way in which the taliban could could break apart on one point that your article makes crystal clear is that members of the afghan army afghan militias that we supported for a long time and armed. We're responsible for arbitrary killings and all kinds of horrendous human rights abuses and the united states itself is responsible for the deaths of many many afghan civilians is. They're likely to be any form of accountability for this. Where should it come from. You know one of the kind of tragedies of what happened with the evacuation for example is that there's thousands of off guns who are just translators or who even were american citizens do american citizens and afghans who were not able to get on to the evacuation flights but then those who had the most blood on their hands who work directly with militias that were under the control of the cia. Been able to get out of the country. Many of them are now already in the united states. And so i think unfortunately. It's unlikely that there's going to be an accountability for for any of this. Is there any way to predict what. Afghanistan is going to look like ten fifteen years from now not very bitter predictions. He's hard to say i. I would be very surprised if there was a taliban government in power ten fifteen years from now i just don't think the movement has a broad enough social base or enough experience in administering modern.

"So of finding that out. My uncle was part of this unfolding. National tragedies suddenly my experiences it in my guess my role in it changed released significantly in you know. I had grown up in the generation. Who had heard about school shootings and bombings of public places. But the idea of knowing someone individually who is a victim of a tragedy. An attack was something that i just. I didn't know how to how to of process or how to how to exist in that state. Was your family able to talk to him. I understand he was in a tower. So my uncle worked for a on of an insurance corporation and he was on the hundred and fifth floor of the second tower and when the planes hit he i wanted to evacuate the building by they were told to stay in the in the second tower but throughout my uncle was trying to get in touch with my aunt at first he left Voicemail messages or messages on her answering machine and there's one where he says there's a plane that flew into world trade center one in. He said it's awful eventually. My aunt went home from her work. And then he got through to her and so At first us going to try to make his way to the roof There is a lot of confusion about whether it would be possible to rescue people from there but The conditions of like fire conditions in the building were such that it was just not possible to keep going to keep getting up there so At one point he stopped. He was still on the phone with my aunt. He said that he loved her. Of was the you know. They were able to connected. Say goodbye of it that she was on with him with tower collapse in some ways. Even though that that's very tragic it also meant that. She had that she knew of. She knew that he was gone that that gave her a sensitive piece. It gave her sense of of of calm of knowing leader. Learning waiter that there were so many people in new york city who just couldn't get in touch with their loved ones who had no idea if they were alive or dead. I'm glad had that piece. Yeah so you're your aunt became involved in activism after that day including helping form. What's called in shorthand. The nine eleven commission which was the bipartisan committee. Tasked with investigating those attacks on nine eleven. I'm interested in that activism. And if you think it helped your aunt he'll if that's even possible d- did her service. She feel it helped others. He'll absolutely so my thoughts about this in my reflection on this have kind of changed a little bit overtime just to appreciate the nuances of what's involved. I think absolutely activism was a way to deal with in process grief and turn it into good and i think how my understood her role after this along you know in concert with many other families who also kind of took these actions was there. Were things that happened. That went wrong..

"That's necessarily true. There's so many other places we can go to. they can go to but again. I think the hope. Let's just say the hope is probably wildly optimistic. But the hope is that The taliban have inherited a very different afghanistan when they inherited from the rush they. They've inherited in afghanistan where four on twenty years. We've been doing state-building education A finance infrastructure in hopes that you would have a decent government there that could keep the place under control. how much of that penetrated into afghan society. I i had no idea. I don't think very much maybe the people in most penetrated. We've already taken out but you have to hope that the taliban will be so consumed now their responsibility of making the plumbing work and the electricity that and will need there for outside help. They will make a different calculation. I would make no prediction the case but that has to be the hope. Took the the. I guess we have troops. You've heard of this. We have troops in south korea. Still we have troops in germany. Still the two thousand that were in afghanistan. What would that do you think that we should have just exited just to finally get out with a clean break or is there something to the argument that we could've left that we're doing pretty well. We had you know a little bit of help for the the afghan forces. And we could've stayed. Are you glad. I guess that's one question my other question is you know. You're an expert on the mideast and and you know everything. Did you criticize leaving equipment there in the way that we exited with with You know not closing bag all the stuff that you hear on maybe from the other side of where you stand on things but did you see. Would you criticize way. This was handled it all by by president biden. Look let's let's go to your first question joke. I don't stay with a small footprint or lead up. Let's remember president. Trump is decided. We're not gonna do that that we're going to change a lot of things. President trump did tom. He's he's done a lot. I could've eaten. He has very me. Finish that trump. Daddy did things guy all right. Yes so so were you out there saying yes he should reverse this process. That trump started number one number. Two biden said i would certainly say and i so wrote the way we left was was terribly chaotic manner. There's just no question about. It's not the way you'd want it. What was the problem. What why did that happen joe. It happened because the afghan government that we stood up for billions and billions of dollars collapse. Their president left and once that government collapsed there was no interface a between us and the taliban anybody else and so you're going to get a mess I don't think there's a nice way to lose a war whether you should have stayed whether that was a price worth continuing to pay. Let's remember the taliban This forget what trump did. Let's take that off the table that trump at done a peace agreement with them release. Five thousand prisoners should bind reverse legitimate question. I don't i don't know the answer. All i know is for all the success. Supposedly bit country folded up like in a second. And that's because the afghan military knew they were fighting for a paycheck not a country and working for an incredibly corrupt regime. And so i. I find myself Really torn frankly between the two. I can see both arguments time. Maybe that gets us back to one of your early point says that there aren't any really good decisions here. There's a lot of bad decisions and a lot of trying to decide what you can live with and what you turn a blind eye to again. I think the bat years at the taliban will be consumed by needed to govern the country and need resources. The argument against that is that Look who they are. And who's now in power. And i don't have much faith in that but becky think about israel and and and and the way it's dealt with the mini version so i say decided for regime. James invaded lebanon. Let didn't work and actually triggered his boat And then you know they. They they got out of They tried to sort of the softer approach and big out hamas basically but they've decided not to Reoccupy gaza they basically do what they called mowing the lawn. You know they have a war with a moss every three or four years And that may be the approach that we we have to adopt an saying war but there may be these different kinds of surgical interventions or whatever special forces where we see threats emerging that aren't being taken care of by the region but the underlying problem of joe's question to yours you know and this is what's motivated me from the very beginning unless this arab muslim world finds its way to pluralism Education pluralism religious pluralism ultimately political pluralism idea pluralism information pluralism. It's going to fall off the face of the earth because there are just too many people out there or be educated on a on on still on bad ideas. And we've that's the dilemma. We face and to the extent that we can get out of there by not being dependent on their oil. That's a good thing and to extent that we can by the power of our own example Encourage people to Take adopt that kind of pluralism. That's a great thing. But i think this is a chronic problem that has to be managed and to joe's question it gets more dangerous because basically people can smaller and smaller weapons That can be bigger. And bigger destruction on visit bigger bigger destruction on us and on and and one of them could get through the net. Miraculously nothi the has in the last one years. But we have a dilemma. There is no perfect answer. One thing you you just said kind of struck me. Just the idea. That us. Not being as reliant on them for oil is a good thing i it seems like we made a lot of progress on that. And maybe we've taken a few steps back the last few years. And now you've got president biden..

"Of September 11th and just a little bit ago, two more victims of the 9 11 World Trade Center attacks were identified through DNA. Think about this. It's been almost 20 years. And they have just identified two more victims. One of them, uh, indeed is a woman. She's an insurance broker. The other one is an unidentified person at this point, but they do know that they are remains of an individual and hopefully that will bring some closure to some families. Think about it has been so much time. And you know what? I was astounded to learn that 40% of the victims still remain unaccounted for. Isn't that staggering that over 1100 people Because of the conditions that happened down there are ground zero. You know, Of course, the jet fuel the fire, the water, the sunlight. All these conditions. Made it very, very difficult. And needless to say, um, just the devastation and they found 22,000 remains and are still in the process of identifying they think some new technology will help lead them to answers and let's pray that they will give it To some families who deserve obviously, whatever sort of, you know information. We can give them again After now, almost 20 years. Um, by the way tonight we have a really special interview coming up at 10 45. We are going to be joined by Howard Lutnick. He is the chairman and CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald. And they suffered more losses than any other company on 9 11. It was absolutely devastating. They lost 658 employees, including his own brother. And Howard Lutnick is going to be joining us to talk about his view of what he thinks. Now. Here we are 20 years later what His thoughts are on this anniversary on this very somber anniversary and also Talk about an inspiring story because we know what happened to that company. It was just devastated. I mean, the offices there five floors there in the tower in the north tower. And of course, we know what happened to the North tower. We all know what happened to the South tower. And that plane. It was American Airlines flight. 11 slammed into the building of that north tower and just destroyed his company, and he literally rolled up his sleeves and said, We are going to turn this around. And now the Cantor Fitzgerald relief fund has raised more than $350 million. Think about that. Towards so many different charities and so many different organizations and has just given back not only the employees there Cantor Fitzgerald and their families, um, but also just inspired. I think a nation in the world and we're going to be talking to the great CEO Howard Lutnick and just about little over half an hour or so, here on the Rita Cosby Show as we look toward obviously all our special programming here as we head to the 20th anniversary of 9 11. Now. Meantime, I couldn't believe it Today When I heard that the Taliban government in Afghanistan is going to be swearing in their new government leaders on 9 11 to me it was astounding. Here it is 9 11. It is obviously such a somber day for all of us. And it is such a powerful day for all of us and for the world, and you would think that this new government if they're trying to put a good impression on that they wouldn't be doing some big ceremony with cheers and whistles and you know, and uniforms and also American tanks and American weaponry, But that is indeed what they are going to be doing. They're going to be swearing in and doing festivities they have announced on 9 11 and I cannot believe that they would spend 9 11 doing that to me. That is just such a slap in the face. It is so disappointing and not that I'm surprised in any shape or form because if you see who's in their government It is basically just a whole bunch of terrorists and terroristic leaders. And just a few hours ago, the DHS secretary, the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas was asked about the threat level as we are heading into this 20th anniversary of 9 11. And of course, everybody is concerned. You know, because a lot of these terrorists they like symbolism. Clearly the Taliban has not reformed its ways. And clearly Afghanistan is now just a Hornets nest for an a breeding ground. I think in so many ways for so many terrorists, I want to hear your thoughts about your concerns. If you have any for 9 11. I'm concerned again because of the symbolism because I feel like a lot of these people who wish to do us harm. They think of symbolism. They think of like anniversaries they think of dates. And I just feel like it is a tempting holiday, not just for Taliban or Isis or Al Qaeda. But even other people, Lone Wolfs and other people to um and I think everybody in the administration knows that Democrat Republican you look at everybody and Congress. Everybody is a little bit on edge, worried about what's going to happen, and this is what the Department of Homeland Security secretary Mayorkas said. Just a few hours ago about his concern and the state of alert. So are you concerned about domestic violent extremist doing something on 9 11 surrounding the anniversary? It is our job to be concerned every day. To be vigilant to share information. So am I concerned? Yes, I'm concerned today. I'm concerned tomorrow and I was concerned yesterday. So what are your thoughts as we head into the 20th anniversary of 9 11? What keeps you up at night and how big of a threat do you think it is? Whether it's someone domestically whether you think it's Um, someone with Isis Al Qaeda? Whether it's Taliban, whether it's something coming through the border. I mean, who knows? 1 808 489 to 2 to 1 808 489222. How concerned are you? I'll tell you That I am deeply concerned. Um and I do worry. Because again, I feel like terrorists. Look at these symbols. They look at the dates and they go. Oh, boy, Would it be tempting if we could do X? Just like they sadly took a strike on our brave men and women right outside the gates there at the Kabul International Airport. They knew we were pulling out. We had announced the date of the pull out. It was very tempting for them, and for that reason they did a strike. Um And they said OK, let's take advantage. Let's try to show that you know that our enemy that America is vulnerable and I am deeply concerned. Listen, I pray that nothing happens for sure. I think we have the greatest police the greatest men and women in the world. But all of us have to be on the lookout. Indeed, it is definitely a main main topic of concern and should be A main topic of concern. What are your thoughts? And what are you most worried about? As we head into the 20th anniversary of 9 11, What do you think we should be most concerned about. Do you think it's somebody coming from? Afghanistan. Do you think it is somewhere else? Do you think that they could even be here? Like what happened on 9 11? Or do you think that security is so great? And I do think we are really, really great. Um and they definitely are prepared and watching everything. Um do you think that it will go smoothly and let's pray that indeed it does. But I do think we have to be careful..
