"And the FOX Oakland dot com. It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelley, and I'm Ari Shapiro. President. Trump took aim again today at one of his favorite targets his own intelligence team, quote, the intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive. He tweeted in a follow up moments later, perhaps intelligence should go back to school. The president was talking about Iran, and what dangers that country may pose and what provoked him was this testimony yesterday before the Senate intelligence committee from the leaders of the CIA the FBI the national security agency. And this man, I'm here today with these exceptional people who I had the privilege to work with in making sure that we can do everything we possibly can to bring the intelligence necessary to our policymakers to this committee and others that would be director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, and despite his very pleasant sounding tone there on subject after subject from Iran to North Korea to ISIS testimony from coats and other. The US intelligence leaders contradicted. The president's stated views and policy. Let's bring into the conversation. Someone who has spent a lot of time navigating between presidents and the spy agencies that serve them from White House counterterrorism chief Richard Clarke, hey, there, it's good to be with you. Good to have you with us. Now, we should acknowledge that remarkably this is not new for President Trump to publicly insult his own intelligence chiefs. But what did you make of this back and forth yesterday? And then and then again today. Well, part of it. I thought was quite good. We have the director of national intelligence who is a former Republican Senator, and who doesn't have a lot of background in intelligence. Some of us were concerned. He wouldn't do a good job, and he liked politicized intelligence. In fact, he's done the exact opposite. He's protected the professional intelligence analytical community and given them the cover to stand up and do their job independent of policymakers Android a good report which they publicly released yesterday. So that's to the plus to the negative is, of course, the president attacking his intelligence community publicly. Look I've been on both sides of this. I've been an intelligence analyst. Villa policymaker out in this. There's a natural give and take between the two, and if the system works one usually upsets the other, but to do it publicly. Just under cuts the entire intelligence community. The morale they're standing there's no value to having a public feud. Of the numerous disconnects on on Iran on North Korea on ISIS. Was there one that looked at you? Yeah. I would add the Russian election interference to that list. So a Russian election interference around with Korea. Isis there's language in the report that obviously the administration wouldn't like but on all of those issues except for North Korea. They're factual statements. They're not value judgments Iran is in compliance with the nuclear agreement. Russia did interfere in the two thousand sixteen election. Isis does still quote command thousands of fighters and maintain over a dozen networks. The only value judgment is when they say North Korea is unlikely the intelligence communities judgment to give up WMD that's their judgment based on a lot of expertise and presumably intelligence, the president disagrees with that fine. But why do we have to have him do that publicly? I doubt these actually read this report the way when disconnect that struck me watching unless I missed it. Neither coats nor anybody else up there testifying pointed to the situation on the US Mexico border as a national security threat. No, how do we will? Because it's not a national security threat. And it's not a crisis. It's the dog that didn't bark here. It's not in the report because it's really not a crime. Very quickly. You have direct experience of working for a president who chose a path of action at odds with what the intelligence might suggest you were in the White House in the run-up to nine eleven. Did you see parallels? No, not really what's disturbing. Here is this attack across the board on the intelligence community, and he's really not using intelligence to shape policy. Former White House counterterrorism chief Richard Clarke, we will leave it there. Thanks so much for taking the time. Thank you. The US is trying to negotiate a peace deal between the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan. They hope that an agreement between these two groups could open the door for American forces to leave the country after seventeen years of war. Many Afghans have strong feelings about this tribe. Sharifi has been getting reaction from people around the country. He's the BBC's Kabul bureau chief, welcome to all things considered. Thank you are a deal between the Taliban, and the Afghan government is still a long ways off. But do most people that you've talked with view this possibility with more excitement or fear mixed feelings, particularly in the cities, but in rural areas because in the last seventeen years a lot of people in rural areas have had to deal with the tweet nonstop conflict. There's a hope not a mixed feeling. There's a hope that no matter. What happens at return f a return of the Taliban means an end to current conflict. It's a bake achievements. For those people. On the ground level. And then compare that with the attitudes in cities like the capital, Kabul where you live. What is the attitude there towards the possibility of peace deal between the government and the Taliban in the northern city of Mysore? I talked to female painter who has a shop in the city, and she's worried that under the Taliban regime, women were not allowed to go out of their homes without being accompanied by a mayor, and even painting was forbidden under the Taliban's. So for her return of the Taliban with the same strategies and approached the had twenty is back with mean immediate loss of her profession. And as she puts it imprisoned in the homes, so overall there's a feeling people are trying to digest that maybe the tall one has also transformed and in the last eighteen years people hope that tall, but understand that there have been a lot of progress in terms of education and human rights overall say it's hope that it is a new Taliban with a new approach with an m standing new realities in Afghanistan. You know, people who were born after the US invasion are almost adults at this point. And so there are people who don't remember life under the Taliban. How realistic is it that a power sharing agreement that included the Taliban today would be more accommodating to minority and women's rights than Taliban rule was twenty years ago, the Taliban a lot of manpower the fighting forces on the ground on not the Taliban who of quieting twenty years ago. They're all sue the new generation we found that that they were more keen on taking selfies and filming people the mobile phones. In fact, a female colleague of mine, and I talk to the Taliban. He didn't seem to mind and talk to her her face. Her was not covered. Her face was not coverage. He had a makeup. And this is the first time after eighteen years people saw the Taliban on the streets of Kabul. So somehow this new. Generation of Taliban. They have also been affected. Technological progress as well as overall progress in Afghanistan in the past eighteen years, as you know, there have been talks before and they've never led to an agreement. Do people in Afghanistan think this time might be different when yes, and this is not because the Toubon series. It's more because this time the American sorry of the table. This more serious to take the talks to a more practical results, and all of that is sort of shattered by that mixed feelings of what kind of a dean what sort of a deal, the two sides would agree on? And what would it mean for conflict as well? As food what this country has a in the last eighteen years Schwab, Sharifi of the BBC speaking with us on Skype from Kabul. Thank you very much. Thank you, very.

Indeed, I visited a frontline that the commander. I talked to another local police they engaged the Taliban every single day. He told me he lost fifty soldiers in the last few weeks. And he was saying that the Taliban on the app beat highs pace of fighting just like there's some operations. That's the BBC's Shoaib Sharifi in Kabul.

There are also the policymakers Andrew base, which is a retired US army officer any teaches international relations at Boston University. We call them up today to get his take on President Trump apparently taking a step toward withdrawal from Afghanistan. Two points in the first one is let us keep in mind that President Trump has a record making bold statements that he subsequently retreats from. So we've got a bold statement of pulling US troops on Syria. Another one reducing the US troops. Strengthen if ghanistan I think it very much remains to be seen whether or not he's going to follow through on this, especially given the amount of opposition. That is developing from the foreign policy establishment. The second point has to do with even if he follows through what comes next he ran for the presidency proclaiming that US wars in the Middle East are misguided. I agree with that sentiment. But there is a need for a policy that looks beyond simply getting out. We've made a mess. We have a responsibility to try to fix the mess that requires a policy in simply withdrawing u s forces is not a policy. Trump also have a record of saying things many actually happened from the Paris climate agreement to the Iran nuclear deal in getting out of both those two deregulation of a bunch of things on the environment. That's true. No, I it is a mixed record in. I it may well be that he will follow through on this. But the fact that the Syria decision led directly to the resignation of secretary of defense Mattis, I think is indicative of the extent to which the establishment is going. To push back against us. What do you may be on this occasion? He'll hold firm. Frankly, I'm waiting to see how things develop and what do you make of the process a process that is apparently ignored the Pentagon, the Afghans and our coalition partners or anything except what the president's gut tells them to do. Well, I think, you know, this is this is the Trump style in your use of the word process. I think is is exactly right in general with previous administrations there is a process that culminates in the president making a decision. There are consultations. There's meetings their staff papers, there's the assessment of alternatives is an attempt to to divine consequences. This guy doesn't believe in this guy thinks that he can go with his gut and that is going to provide the basis for a sound outcomes. I have my doubts. I. I have real doubts about whether the process is informed by the the prevailing assumptions of the foreign policy. Establishment doubts the daily to sound policy. But I'm equally doubtful that they go with your gut president who frankly doesn't know much about foreign policy. I am doubtful. The death could lead to positive outcomes. What do you think is America's moral obligation here? Well, that's an excellent question. And it's a question is very difficult to provide a sort of a fifteen second answer to that. We have we do have a profound moral obligation to Afghans and to Iraqis and two Syrians and two Kurds and the list goes on we can take the list all the way back to a moral obligation to the people of Southie..

"First though, we want to dig into a major foreign policy shift this week the decision by Trump to pull US troops, not just out of Syria, but also out of Afghanistan. The administration has reportedly ordered the military to start withdrawing seven thousand American troops. That's about half the number of U S forces in Afghanistan. Afghan officials were said to be taken by surprise. And don't forget, this is all happening as talks with the Taliban are underway show shy. Sharifi is falling all of this carefully. He's e Kabul bureau chief for a partners at the BBC. The media local people. I talked to in Kabul today, they are asking wall in how although the member is not significant, but he's saying so this decision must have been taken based on a progress. But we do not see a progress situation is terrible and literally in every province of Afghanistan. So what does it mean for day to day life in Kabul in Afghanistan? I if half of these US troops leave seven thousand troops packing up and going what's that going to imply Markle? I just came from northern Afghanistan where I visited frontline and also face where people experience fighting every day. I didn't see that the news would have affected the mood of already troubled people in those areas because we had over handed in sixty thousand forces in on a stone. And the casualty rate of Alfred security forces were already high. So the. One thousand could not even blanket a province. But the political message has worried rather than the military physical military presence on the ground. So I would say overall people haven't been worried on the ground as the numbers, but the Avalon security forces are heavily relying on he was air power. Is that follows reduction in air power or the Avalon security forces that will be really alarming that will affect the morale of our own security forces. Is there a sense of betrayal? Amongst the Afghan national army not yet. It's too early to judge that, but yeah, among Savon officials. They didn't like it to learn from the media about this surprise announcement of redaction from their close ally the Americans if that's only as signal somehow. To come down, the Taliban and sin the positive signals that he was as prepared to meet that demand of full redress from Evanston, and that would mean Taliban, reducing fighting that could be interpreted as something positive, but they are like the African government didn't like it was apprised and a worried that what comes next.
