Trump administration to roll back restrictions on land mine use: report
"The trump administration is planning to loosen restrictions on the use of weapons that have been banned by more than a hundred and sixty countries land mines the new policy is set to be announced tomorrow and the state department has already informed its embassies and here's Michele Kelemen reports according to a diplomatic cable first reported by the news website vox the trump administration is re sending president Obama's two thousand fourteen directive on land mines that was a policy that came out of long discussions with the department of defense says Robert Shinseki who served on Obama's National Security Council DOT came to the position that other than with respect to very specific circumstances on the Korean peninsula they are not of military utility and and thus it agreed with what became the Obama administration policy which was not to use these weapons outside of Korea CNN reports that the trump administrations change in approach followed a Pentagon review the new policy is expected to allow the military to use land mines anywhere as long as they have a self destruct mechanism wyshynski says even those types of land mines are dangerous because there's no person involved to make a distinction between enemy fighters or child who thinks it's a toy like a rifle where there's a person deciding to pull the trigger or it's our own for that matter where there's someone watching the video feed and deciding whether to fire the weapon or not these are at the end of the day so called dom munitions even those that self destruct after after thirty days time a former commander of US army Europe lieutenant general Ben Hodges though says the US has to be realistic especially after Russia's military aggression in Ukraine so as you start thinking about the possibilities not the probabilities but the possibilities of a conflict with the Russian federation forces up along NATO's eastern flank the need for land mines they can stop large armored formations is still valid the U. S. is not a signatory of the treaty banning landmines the Obama administration didn't go that far Hodges now with the center for European policy analysis says the U. S. would need Russia and China on board for that I've seen nothing in the last in my study of Russian or Chinese history they give me any confidence that they would respect international also this is about being able to protect allies to protect our own troops the former Obama official Brzezinski doesn't buy that we've been engaged in two decades of persistent conflict and DO decently haven't used these weapons that's because they're not particularly useful on a modern military battlefield and land mines continue to be a danger to civilians around the globe Michele Kelemen NPR news the state

"And so when you spoke to kaitlin, what did she tell you about how exactly flare works? Why is it called Uber for ambulances? What fled? It was quite smart. Like Behr recruited all the private operators of ambulances that existed in Nairobi. And it's using location based information in order to help the person who needs an ambulance, identify the closest one to them and actually dispatching them so with the system you call a number. It's not nap. You call a number and flare knows where you are. And it can calculate where the nearest amulets is not just based on occasion, but also on traffic and dispatch it and who pays for it. Well the moment it's a private effort. And so it's a subscription based system until you're saying the big corporate to paying for it schools paying for it, and also individuals that, obviously ultimately. You would want system like this to cover all of the population so that has to be a question for the government really. And so is it making a difference already is is it clear that it works? Yeah, it's making an incredible difference. When I spoke to Kaelin she told me that the figures showed that they had reduced the time it takes for an ambulance to arrive from one hundred sixty two minutes to fifteen minutes. So, my favorite set on not is the fastest Kenyan marathon, runner can complete a marathon and a half before you would be able to get an ambulance, previously, and we've brought it down to fifteen minutes on scene, and you're in a hospital bed with physician in sixty nine minutes and not huge drop. His really down to the fact that they can just pick the nearest ambulance will what about other cities. What about cities in fact, in developed world or their or their lessons to be drawn here? Well, I think anywhere around the world where you have these fragmented. Emergency response systems should be looking at this case in Robie, and thinking about whether it can be adopted. It's fantastically useful. Even countries with more centralized systems. I think what the fla- system shows is the benefits of using geo location for mobile phones. One of the things Kaitlyn told me was that the NHS national health service here was built on a sort of landline. System initials needs to be able to identify where you're calling from. So all the systems are based on landline. Tech, meaning that your landline was registered to a specific address. So few picked up a phone call from an office building. They would say, I know that you're calling from, you know, eleven Charles street. Whereas once mobile phones were introduced, you could be roaming all around, you're not calling from a landline, you could be on a highway, and you're disoriented your panics. You have no idea and you're just yelling out. I'm on the highway. And so the biggest thing is that these systems need to be cloud based, they need to be integrated with today's technology and location, based is like I mean, that's the way of the future. I think this obsessive fish. Shinseki of being able to, like, hey, he pulled a boffon.

Absolutely, positively willing to give it a shot, if you know, anything, can you help me out, please eight three three Tony Twitter. Tony cats. I greatly greatly. Appreciate it. The story of Gallagher. Okay. This, this is like a made for TV movie. This should be on lifetime. It's so completely insane. As to be believed, we're talking about a US navy seal Ming Edward Gallagher. And Edward Gallagher. Is accused. Of killing an ISIS prisoner. That's the accusation there have been people who say you know he's be treated unfairly meaning the navy seal. He should be pardoned a lot, a lot of conversation. Well, there's a trial. There is a trial that takes place. And at the trial. On the stand. Is special warfare operator? First class Cory Scott. Takes the stand. Not only is he first class special warfare operator, Corey Scott, he is also. The medic and he was working on this prisoner. He's working on the prisoner. He's there too. Help him if you well injured, whatever it is. He's a prisoner. Take care of him and he's on the stand. And he is asked Scott is asked. Did chief Gallagher this navy seal kill this terrorist and Scott replies. No, I did. He then goes on to claim that he is fixated, the prisoner. That there was a breathing tube. He held his thumb over the breathing tube. And when asked why did you kill him Scott replied, because I knew he was going to die anyway. I wanted to save him from what was going to happen to him next. Navy seal Edward Gallagher has pled not guilty to meditate in bird aggravated assault. From this. Scott also told defense counsel that during his time serving overseas, hit witnessed the Iraqi emergency response division, torture rape and murder prisoners. Part of the story that you need to know that makes it all come into the category. If you're not already there. Is that Scott? This medic. Has immunity. So here's a navy seals Gallagher. Who's on trial for his life. Here comes another. Here comes the seal team seven medic special operator. First class Cory Scott with unity onto the stand to say. Yeah. He didn't do it. I did it. After testifies. Gallagher, and his wife were seeing in the hallway hugging and laughing together. Dude. Whole thing stinks to holy high heaven. Stinks to holy high heaven. I am not one of those guys, if you tell me that during the course of war children were shot and killed. I will tell you. Yes that can happen. If you tell me, you have a prisoner, and there are rules of engagement, and there are guys not following the rules in just killing prisoners. I will tell you throw them in, whatever it is. You throw them in Briggs or stockade take your pick. The difference being that when we are at war nothing gets in the way. You might not know that I'm a guy who completely opposes the idea of counterinsurgency strategy. I don't believe that in certain parts of the globe, with certain ideologies, you can win the hearts and minds. It can't be done. I don't believe in any of any conflict in Iraq or Afghanistan, or Syria, or, or you can. I don't think those areas you can win hearts and minds. I also don't believe in the concept of pinpoint war, which is to say, I don't believe that you avoid the churches. I don't believe you avoid the mosques. I don't believe you avoid the hospitals. I don't believe you avoid the schools. I am not a war monger, what I'm telling you is, if we are going to engage, I want to fully engage until the enemy is destroyed. I keep saying this, it, it's so amazing to me that this isn't the standard said is in places that people look at me like I am nuts. I am not nuts. I know how to end the problem. It's told blooded war is cold blooded producer Ari. I don't want to play around the edges. I don't wanna go to war for later changing causes. I don't wanna have little bombing missions here and there, I don't wanna have little skirmishes here and there, I want to be left alone. If we need to go to War, I wanted to play a war. I want the country to be behind it, or at least congress to approve it, and then I want to kill the enemy until they beg me to stop. And then I will decide twin to stop at by leisure. I don't know why this is so difficult tough. The world is not at times nice in. I am not interested in being told that I have to be nice. I think I have to leave people. I think I have to let them do their thing I can show by example of better way for things to be done. But I am not about to force myself upon somebody. But if you bomb American citizens if you go after American things if you kill somebody. I think we have the right to completely annihilate not decimate decimates only ten percent. I want to annihilate but what I, I wanted to be left alone. But we're talking about these these seals here. Someone's a prisoner their prisoner, and there are rules to prisoners you follow the rules, 'cause I don't like the idea of a military where the rules, don't get followed. That's supposed to be the whole damn point. I did not serve. And I did not serve because certainly at the time I would have been an absolutely horrific soldier. They own depression, getting in the way, never mind. I don't think I would have been someone in my early twenties who could have understood what it must be like to go through bootcamp those first couple of days. Those first hours you ever watch those videos? It's it is amazing. And. Insane. But I sure so understand, and I need. No reminders. Thank you. That the purpose of the military is to kill people and break things and the purpose of the military, or at least the rules of the military matter that everything is done for a reason, and that the chain of command has value. And when you have any soldier anywhere going about doing things on their own. Well, you create a problem. You create a problem that can lead to other problems that can lead to damage of the unit or worse, which is why I don't accept it. I refuse to accept it. Why are they killing prisoners? It's a question that is okay to ask. It doesn't mean I'm anti military. I'm very pro. Doesn't mean I'm okay with this general Shinseki was leading the VA under President Obama and it was under his administration that we learned that the VA in Arizona in Phoenix was keeping two sets of books, the books that they showed the VA brass of the patients, they were seeing, and then the real books of how long those patients waited and they died. Veterans died waiting. I think that for Shinseki should have been fired and worse. President Obama allowed him to resign. Shouldn't have been allowed to resign. He should have been fired publicly to his nose and then sent packing. Because there has to be responsibility for these things. Has to be responsibility for these things. This Gallagher trial stinks high heaven. Stinks to high heaven. You killed him. So he wouldn't fall to the hands of the Iraqi security forces. I'm supposed to take that as that was the loving maneuver. I have a.

So he he or she can rule on both items that he has he has possession of those and he can hear them during a of travel board hearing. So you create this kind of a rope a dope situation. They don't realize that you've thrown this evidence in there. And they think it's over having to do with the queue, so the ignore it and laugh, then you file stuff mental and all of a sudden three. Three becomes a probe into the document with respect to the five twenty six b now they're gonna nor this Bs ING probably gonna even issue a denial on it and the week or ten days and laugh and think that's funny. But by line is is the gal has must multiple sclerosis. She's already lost the use of upper and lower right. Extremities doubts as the L all by itself. Now, you'll see up there on that blog. I put up about the radio show. There's decision. They're called Brenna, sir. Okay. Brand laser hinges. A lot of you. If you're familiar with Buea versus Shinseki, they start arguing about the order in which you get something. And and there shouldn't be any difference. If you get PTSD retroactive the nineteen ninety seven for hundred percent that should subsume another rating that occurred in two thousand four so that you get us MCS from two thousand. And four on you can trade them around. One hundred percent scheduler is is interchangeable with the TD. I you and if one occurs earlier than the other one would be more financially advantageous to you. So there is no rhyme or reason to the order of your awards if you can rearrange them come up with their better one. I slang this straight. Maybe also had a flush, you know, K where do you wanna play it as a straight or flush or or street floor? Right. Right. So. Okay. So here's what Brandis are. Doesn't hinge like Ford waters separate tool your toolbox. Just as I explained. But first of all Brennan, sir is a situation where Mr. Brennan us use of his lawyer extremities, and they gave him SEM C L the first step for that's loss. Usa large.

Well, that's against the law. You can't get you can't pyramid. You can't say, okay. I lost my legs. So now I needed and tendons that has the Aden.

"What grade do you give the performance of that agency under his stewardship? Well, you know, I think that he's he's he's done an F. I gave him an f rating when it comes to many of the folks in the China's hard as they can. But when you don't have a CIO, you can't overhaul that computer system. Let me ask you. So they just haven't is that a is that a Senate confirmed position? Or is that just a political appointment? It's Senate confirmed political appointment until they haven't nominated someone they have a nominated anyone two years. Yeah. Yeah. To be the chief information officer for the VA at a time when they're trying to integrate the VA and DOD's 'electronic medical record system, and they've left these eighty thousand veterans out there with no terms of payment. You know, something similar happened. When we first put in the GI Bill to live in GI Bill when I was Abba myself during the Obama administration under secretion Seki and the computer system, there was a glitch then but cigarettes Shinseki just basically blew up at the CIO at the time. It said, you know, what I don't care we're gonna fix it. And we're going to cut checks. Tomorrow. And so he went out, and we cut checks on those veterans who are not getting their payments. This president just leaving these guys get thrown out onto the streets. They can fix it can do emergency payments, all of these veterans to make sure that they get the money to pay their rent and their housing for their dormitories. And they're not doing it. Let me ask you final question about the representation this congress. You're someone who comes from a different background than a lot of your fellow senators, obviously, you you're you're a veteran. You're a woman of color. You have seven bumble daughter who you you are mothering right now as you in the capital, there's a whole wave of new folks are going to be taking office to new women who will be joining you as democratic colleagues in the Senate, dozens of women who've been elected in the house. How does that change the atmosphere and the leadership structures and representation on Capitol Hill where we need more women in leadership positions all across this nation. Not just here in Capitol Hill, but in board rooms as well all across America. Remember, we also lost two women. We lost a clever. Mccaskill and Heidi Heitkamp. So in the Senate, at least on the democratic side. We haven't gained any more women. And I've you recall Afghanistan, their parliament has twenty five percent female representation, and we're sitting at twenty two in the United States. So we're not doing this. While this ghanistan is and that says something about how much more we have to do. And how much longer we have to go until we get fifty percent of the Senate occupied by women. We're not true at equal representation of the American people. All right L, annoy centers, Tammy Duckworth. Thank you so much for making some time. Thank you. All right. I want to thank everyone that already bought tickets to our first ever live recording of why this happening our weekly podcast, which is out Tuesday's that event is now sold out.

"I lucky because we shut down in New Orleans and the times picayune which is the big paper that they had moved to another building and they and they left this place. Empty was completely empty. So we got the just dress it and make it look like, you know, like the night Ritter offices, but we, we could never built that. It's too expensive. You know, you don't have that the budget and input in recreating Afghanistan Iraq. Yeah, you know, it's like I did this movie balk at list years ago and you know the Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman go to the pyramids and they go to, you know, they jump out of, they go everywhere. You know, they're in Africa. They on top of a mountain with with the with the with the snow. We never left the parking lot in. You know that place the lot that's across the street from the Formosa cafe. We shot at all on this. This love that's parking lot. You can see you put everything in and you just build a little thing where they are and everything around that, you know. So we did that. You know, we, we had ghanistan. It was a, it was a parking lot at in Orleans in order to set those shots up. Did you have someone storyboards for you? So you can know. Okay, here the shots we're gonna need for these. A lot of times they liked the story. They, you know, they said they will story. I never use the storyboards though because I'll look at them, but then I will just say, wait a minute. I know generally what they can cover. What I'll do is rather than storeboard I'll work with the CGI guy and I'll say, just tell me where I can shoot gimme the angle, just the areas that I can shoot and what you can do and put in. For instance, like when the the transport, you know, caravan is moving, you know, that was shot, you know, in a place where there was a junkyard and it was like a lot. Stuff. We just painted out and you make it look like a desert. And he tells me, well, you can shoot sixty. I just it's going to cost this much. As long as I know I can shoot three sixty then I can put the camera anywhere. We use drones, you know, we had some drone shots for that. What was in? This is our last question. 'cause unfortunately have to leave. What was the toughest scene for you as you reflect on this movie now? The toughest. Let's see. I don't know. I mean, th they, they all seem to work. Okay. I mean, the hardest is shooting in DC because it's crowded now and there's more security than there's ever been. You know, after nine eleven. There's been so much more security. It's hard to get streets and get them cleared, but also you're working with the capitol police, the federal government, and there are certain places you can go into thing and that was that was difficult. You are allowed a certain amount of time. I remember when I did LBJ we had to go to Daley plaza and it took, you know, they said, okay, you can have like six hours and I had to recreate the whole Kennedy assassination, six hours so that when I really did plan every single shot at four cameras and I move around, but anything in DC is is hard. It's. Yes, yes. See what stick Cheney's response to the film. So I don't know, man, I don't know. But I mean he he's still stands by and said it was still the right thing to do, you know. But here's something interesting we showed us. We had a screening there in DC and and general Shinseki who was at the time. If you remember, he testified and said, if you're going to invade Iraq, you're gonna need at least three to four hundred thousand troops to hold his place for a period of time..

The what I found out when we're doing an audit on. Actually auditing the g reports and one of my team members. This is going back a couple of years ago, we discovered I had to go back five years in a just every reports. And this is one of my team members who doesn't like the talk to people so shoes great at doing this up. And I said I want you to go through. And there's I want you to find a couple of different things I stuff I want you to find every report in five years that they found wrongdoing that they actually found like criminal or even just malfeasance fi find all of them. And the other thing I wanted her to find ways where they had 'cause he doesn't just do investigations. They do audits and things like that. I said I want you to go through and find the numbers for the suicide reports because they get those reports, and that's who's actually pushing the number of suicides. That's he's actually. Doing the reporting vehic. That's where we all get this twenty two. What we discovered was that v is pushing this number and then lowered that number twenty after Shinseki made that thing we're gonna we're gonna end homeless. We're almost veterans. We're gonna end veteran suicide all these things. I mean, it was out for I. Yeah, I'm still waiting. The VA has one hundred fifty seven medical sodas around the nation. And they all have their supposed to all reports. They go any veteran death and the manner of now we all know, and I come from a family of guttering going back to the revolution. I can tell you when veteran dies the medical examiner knows about it pretty darn quick. So they also will report it to via and we found out that only twenty two date or twenty one states. We're reporting to the VA. Not all fifty plus four. Territories. Twenty one states. So if we were reporting twenty two day from twenty one states. The extrapolated math is like third grade level. What we're looking at is a much higher number. If we actually got all the real numbers from across the nation from all VA and not doesn't include as I a quarter veto wome. Well, that's and the territories we have America's moa and the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico and those places, but then we also have the ones as I pointed out that are. Accident is men are death. Listen, for whatever reason and most of them are for privacy and dignity. So let's talk about the real number..
