"Protesters since at least July 14. Now you need probable cause to two arrested somebody. It's not clear whether these arrests are arrests or detentions. People have been released is not like the walking them up in Guantanamo Bay and leaving them there. There's probably if I had to suggest a theory here is my theory that the feds have been monitoring a group of anti protesters for a long time. They have tape of them, and then they're going on arresting them when they're violating her few at night. Personal accounts in multiple videos posted online for the officers driving up to people detaining individuals with no explanation why they're being arrested and driving off. A tactic appears to be another escalation in federal force deployed in Portland City streets as federal officers and President Donald Trump has said they plan to quell nightly protests outside the federal courthouse and Multnomah County Justice Center that have lasted for more than six weeks. Federal officers of charge at least 13 people with crimes related to the protest so far that crimes related to the protest Their crimes of looting and rioting and violating the law. Others have been arrested and released, including Pettibone. They also left one demonstrator hospitalized with skull fractures after shooting him in the face with so called less lethal munitions. On July 11th officers from the US Marshal Special Ops Group and Customs and Border Protection have been sent to Portland to protect federal property. But interviews conducted by OBP show officers are also detaining people in Portland Street aren't near federal property, Nor is it clear that all the people being arrested have engaged in criminal activity. Well, if they are detained, and then they're released. That does happen from time to time. And when the police detain you, and then they release you, that is not technically an arrest by Supreme Court jurisprudence. Now, what is it? What, exactly Why's all this happening? If you just read that piece, you think? Well, these are peaceful protesters writing. That's all that's happening is peaceful, Peaceful Protesting. Yeah, That's not exactly what has been happening. You have terrorists are attempting to turn. I mean, look at these saves and looking like the defacement of public property. You can see what's happening here. Get that they're having to use tear gas on protest. On quote unquote protesters and looters are flinging objects at the cops. They're firing fireworks, literally firing fireworks at federal buildings. I mean, this is this is not peaceful protest, ng acting th s secretary Chad Wolf said in a statement earlier this week. The city of Portland has been under siege for 47 straight days by a violent mob, while local political leaders refused to restore order to protect their city each night. Wallis anarchist, destroy and desecrate property, including the federal courthouse and attacked the brave law enforcement officers protecting it. Said. Instead of addressing violent criminals in their communities, local and state leaders are instead focusing on placing blame on law enforcement and requesting fewer officers in their community. This failed response has only embolden the violent mob is it escalates violence day after day? D. H s and released an extensive list of violence caused by leftist protesters since basically the end of May. We're talking about graffiti. We're talking about assault mean that there's tape of antifa dragging fencing over toward the federal courthouse to try and set up their own chop, Chazz. In in Portland. So why? Why exactly? I hear they are right. Here they are. They've faced the federal court building and now they're dragging fencing over there to prevent the cops from coming in. Idiot white kids. It's a bunch of moron moron woke white liberals. For engaging in this sort of activity. It's criminal activity. And the locals refused to do their job and arresting criminals. And so the feds are coming and they're doing it. Which is legal. Which is legal. So the media's response has been Trump's fashion. This is the overwhelming response literally. Trump is a fascist was trending on Twitter. So if Trump enforces the law, he's a fascist from doesn't take over all aspects of America's Lock down policies. Then he is an incompetent. You guys gonna have to pick one? We're gonna have to pick the other. But again, it all comes down to the cops are the bad guys. Except the cops aren't the bad guys. There's one black officer from Portland who I mean, this is pretty moving stuff. Talked about the situation in Portland, he said. Basically, I want have conversation with some of the people who are protesting, and these white woke jackasses keep coming between me and the people that I'm talking to. And then calling me racist names. There was this. This black police officer from Portland. His name is Jackson.

In Vietnam and how many people got involved and supported that sacrifice a few quite a few quite a few and the young man who when we aren't his a duty. from the Air Force to reach out to to save people in that again. There's all kinds of complications in the world today with our service overseas and other places there's just control from unchain places and you know military services, always a little bit unplanned, a not not not unplanned unsuspected things happening and And that was like this situation in our place in this part of the world, these men and women, these men in this squad. have been served in insurance for years. You know there is this activity. They probably were in. activity in Iraq Iran Afghanistan Pakistan. And now you know they're dealing with. Newcomers Green soldiers coming in, and you know there's this no news, no chances it's GonNa keep going and we're going to all get old out of here. No, that's why my son got sent back to where he had to go through like a re a retraining retraining program after all the years in the service humiliating but There's very strict rules and the special ops groups, and especially in the seal team, and there were requirements he had to do night like not papa guy for mouth off, even though he was in the right because he is devoted to a service knows. This is an unseen enemy, and it could be a problem for a while and unexpected things. Do Happen and keep. Like. My mom used to say all right. Put your big boy pants on. You know this. This incident led him to lead to be. Invited to teach because he has experienced and work at the base despite his devotion to is worked there and. And then he decides to because of the influence and the catalyst of old, and not an old, but a girlfriend from years earlier. Who is now running the bar that they used to visit? And and tells you know convince them to go visit his dad who he really doesn't want to. And doesn't have much good feelings about that and I play that. And you know we don't. We don't really want to deal with each other I've I'm losing my farm I've lost my wife. I'm not a happy guy. I find solace in the last few things that remain their voices, which only does convinced. Come out and visit me a horse kicking the heck out of me, not kicking me literally, but knock me down, not not listening to what I'm trying to tell him. And he sees this and he gets worried, but I do want to control a situation and because. And I do. This is this is. My support is the in my interplay with my life at this ranch. But he gets disappoint you against this point in insulting lease, and over the course of the next episode you see progress. Because I. DON'T WANNA fight with him and I see the growth in my son. And the difficulties. He has faced a kind of evident. He's going to have to deal with this life here. and He trice coming to maybe change his mind little bit with the help him his girlfriend. He tried to help me and I see. Maybe a change in my attitude, but I also see the growth in his character and I realized this devotion that he has. For the other men that he's with is grown to this place of character growth that he has now. And he has seen loss I'm sure whatever experience I've had with others or with myself and military service I know. This man. Music? Grown soul now coming home will be more difficult. Actually change now, and he has a commitment that has to be finished and he's got to go back. This takes a lot and be in a few seconds of takes to say. This is what we're going through here today in our country. We're having challenge and we can get more out of the conversations. We see between these guys in their squad. And the difficulties they face with each other, and also the support that's given even an anger and disappointment. They're having the loss of one of their own. And difficulty of their squad leader David Boreanaz to bring this thing together once in a while or just to carry the weight this service on his shoulder. And the you know the the transition of life at home. This this is what this young man is going to have to face, and he's getting that basic training inch in active duty. which made maybe more I've experienced this this myself with my dad? After about four or five years old and fifty, he's watching the spirit of men and their wives after the Second World War has a little boy, but it was evident all around the bringing like that out of. my GRANDPA's my GRANDPA. My Dad's cat back to our house, he. Respected him, but the man with died at the valley from alcohol, and he served in France lost over a thousand men, and his his his his a platoon, or whatever it was called. You know gas. Terrible terrible best by gas in. An area France and Americans their. Did a tremendous sacrifice. And the he you know he had, he lost. His wife left him, but he raised all the kids, my GRANDPA. And when they went off the Second World War he didn't want to really face that as I. Understand it coming back or not, so we went to the bowery to die. Now, these men in the second world. War that I saw were supportive to each other and supportive to the young men coming back from north, Vietnam a little boy I could. I get so much from that image? You know being taken to place where he had friends. Maybe who're service or a service not in the Pacific. He was in the core. Where he lost squad at Guadalcanal in your, my uncle served in Germany and other places. and. The baulch in these men meant something to each other, the desire to get back in the in the in the gear back gear and in American jobs may not have been available. This man I went to remember had a beginning of a restaurant. A little boy I wanted some pasta speed. Italian restaurant, looking forward to it. And one. Two tables. I think this is kind of new. You know. Restaurants. This was the beginning of something that grew over the years after that and his parents his parents here from Italy this man. started a new life in America as many people are doing all the time, and it's what we what we really should be proud of and support. Now today you know world today we're facing the unseen enemy. I get more out of the relationship, so these guys in their service, their difficulties between each other. Frustration and anger lost paying. than. Anybody challenges them. They will snap together second, and that's the way it is here. You know we're going to show changes and remember.

B. I. is that no no matter what you developers and expertise is probably a useful work whether a language specialist or you're a pilot or an accountant or an attorney or like me you know a guy that once worked undercover so what so I had a pretty good pretty good foundation you know when I first came into the peril it was the longest under cover role that you had well it was kind of an unfortunate situation and actually happened in Las Vegas and you'd actually went on for about three or four years but I was up fortune from the standpoint that I was able to routinely see my family and so forth which is my anchor and the you know what but ordinarily up you know there were a couple different levels of undercover operations at the to be gets involved in here there's the short term by bus gonna situation you show up you got the money he got the other guys got the dope or the guns he'd make the deal with the guy gets arrested and then there's another little bit longer thing that actually is called a group to operation and it's funded but doesn't have a lot of money to it and generally it last about six months and then the others the deep long term operations which IP got involved in many times and they can go on for years so so I got involved one that the last of the you know through four years it just seems like the most tense nail biting work an F. B. I. G. agent could do at any moment if you get discovered by the bad guys that's it well it it can't be it certainly can be but you know one of things I did you know you had mentioned that I really do I play the role of the scum bag but I really don't look like a scumbag I learned early on that in order to be effective you know this role what what I what I did and I think most successful undercover agents do you try to pattern you're undercover persona very much like your own personally in other words I wouldn't go in there and try to be a tough guy and you know that's sort of the same because I'm not but you know I would prefer tray myself as somebody that has some connections somebody that was a little smarter than the you know the average street thug you know in the mob's got a lot of street thugs who loves tough guys but they don't have a lot of smart guys so that's kind of where I sit in well I know you're being modest but you won a bronze star and a Purple Heart for valor I think he can be a tough guy would you need to well let's just say that I think will make sure to sag so well let's talk about white boy wreck I'm there a lot of cases that I want to cover and in the time that we have together but that might be that the highest profile case that the public might know about there's this film with Matthew McConaughey that came out there is a documentary that's a terrific documentary a you are a central figure in this whole thing could you tell me so you're in Detroit you're not under cover but you were there for twelve years and this had to be something you work on a long time well yeah so in nineteen eighty two the F. B. I. got concurrent jurisdiction with the Drug Enforcement Administration to work drugs and that was about the time that I arrived in Detroit from Pittsburgh and you know I did have some experience in that sort of thing so naturally I was put on the newly developed drug squad and we're anxious to kind of prove ourselves and so we're out there on the street beating the bushes and about the same time this stuff called crack hit the streets and the door was already up you know a violent city but when crack hit the streets it blew up like a bomb and up you know people were murdering each other gang members were rising and they were falling you know drive by shootings were extremely common and does so with a very very violent place so we had passed or informants and so forth to go out give us basic Intel trying to determine what was going on and one of those one of the informants that later with that was handed to me from another agent was a guy by the name of Richard Bushey and so it is so we wanted to introduce me to well this guy so I could do because another reason pot by the name of a great Schwartz and I had a we're copays agents on a major drug operation called the curry gang he and basically they were operating on the east side of Detroit they control the cocaine traffic on the side and so when a of like I'll never forget I you know I went into a McDonald's on the west side of Detroit and I walked in and I saw this guy there the introductions were made but he had this hello young freckle faced kid with a who looked to me like he was about fifteen years old and also and also a common you know sometimes importance to bring the kids I.

I. special ops groups that conducted surveillance of major terrorist cells and their associates he served in the infantry in Vietnam and was awarded the Purple Heart and bronze star for valor and he lives in Las Vegas here where are he and I are pals across a couple of times are going to get into that in just a moment thanks for being with us hi George it's it's a great honor to be on with the you know I followed your career for a number of years and up you know I personally know about the some of the great things you've done with your reporting exposing some corruption cases and so forth but I have I have a question I want to ask you and it is going to take long you know I go to bed at nine o'clock yeah I I don't know how to break this news stay at but I'd put on a pot of coffee you know right I'm ready let alone I saw today Donnie Brasco the movie Donnie press yeah Johnny Depp was on one of the cable channels and I thought you immediately because we're gonna have this interview tonight what's what's your connection explain the connection well it's it's you know it's a very thin connection but but nevertheless I do have a connection you know back when I first came into the girl prior to the bureau I've worked a lot of undercover stuff with the estate's attorney general's office in awhile and basically I was assigned to an organized crime unity and our job was to infiltrate the lower level organized crime operations gambling operations that sort of thing small amounts of drugs so when I came into the bureau already had that that's sort of a background so I naturally gravitated toward that so when I first got out of the FBI academy of suicide to Pittsburgh and I ended up down there now one of the largest cities in West Virginia and we had a huge corruption problem down there with the local law enforcement kind of on the take to protect gambling operations and so well we decided to set up a sting operation actually operate a night club and I was the guy that was running it in the back room we have a gambling operation so we're paying up the sure put some local authorities not to go and run that and also the same time the guy in charge is sick the the second in charge of the Pittsburgh office the end and he said the you know we have an operation is ongoing and Florida right now and gets to go on for sometime and these guys they're working under cover have faced basically every obstacle that you're probably going to encounter so what you're going to go down there and just hang out with and talk to a workable so I did and so I went down and end up with a being a night club they had been around for a few days and dealt with a a guy by the name of Joe Pistone and is under cover name was Donnie Brasco and I really didn't have any appreciation for you know the magnitude of the case at the time only when it came out and I was able to look back on and say wow you know I I guess I was there so that was my connection and Joan I occasionally talk of from time to time and he's doing well and got a little harsh form somewhere and good but so that's the Heidi is he hiding I'm not really hiding but he doesn't advertise you know worry is I mean if somebody really really really wanted to find out they certainly could but I think enough times gone now we're you know a lot of these guys that he put away deceased and I I think it's it's it's old history at this did you learn from him the the tricks of the trade some of the ropes of deep undercover well you know yeah yes I did the short answer is yes but you know I've already had a pretty good foundation for several years of working under cover and I'd worked on building my under cover identity for a number of years so I pretty well at that place and they just over the years I you know develop that much more and the book but yes I did learned quite a bit from the you had to essentially convince a lot of people that you were a scumbag that you're a criminal and you look like you don't look like a criminal I mean I know I understand how naive that is to say that that they come in all shapes and sizes but when did you figure out that you had a a talent for this because not everyone can do that I mean the sacrifices they go into long term under cover being in a role it's it's tough well you're exactly right a lot of people can't do that in the bureau but in all fairness you know I could sit down and doing accounting job in on a financial crime is just not my thing so you know the one of the unique things I think about the the F. B. I. is that no no matter what you developers and expertise is probably a use for whether a language specialist or you're a pilot or an accountant or an attorney or like me you know a guy that wants to work undercover so up so I had a pretty good pretty good foundation you know when I first came into the girl it was the longest under cover role that you had well it was kind of an unfortunate situation and actually happened in Las Vegas and it actually went on for about three or four years but I was a fortune from the standpoint that I was able to routinely see my family and so forth which is my anchor and the you know what but ordinarily up you know there are a couple different levels of undercover operations at the to be gets involved in here there's the short term by bus kind of situation you show up you got the money you got the other guys got the dope or the guns he'd make the deal with the guy gets arrested and then there's another little bit longer thing that actually is called a group to operation and it's funded but doesn't have a lot of money to it and generally it last about six months and then the other is the deep long term operations which IP got involved in many times and they can go on for years so so I got involved one that the last of the you know through four years it just seems like the most tense nail biting work an F. B. I. G. agent could do at any moment if you get discovered by the bad guys that's it well it can be it certainly can be but you know one of things I did you know you had mentioned that I really do I play the role of the scum bag but I really don't look like a scumbag I learned early on that in order to be effective you know this role what what I what I did and I think most successful undercover agents do you try to pattern you're undercover persona very much like your own personally in other words I wouldn't go in there and try to be a tough guy and you know that's sort of the same because I'm not but you know I would prefer trade myself as somebody that had some connections somebody that was a little smarter then you know the average street thug you know in the mob's got a lot of street thugs who loves tough guys but they don't have a lot of smart guys so that's kind of where I sit in well I know you're being modest but you won a bronze star and a Purple Heart for valor I think he could be a tough guy would you need to well let's just say that I think will make sure to sag so well let's talk about white boy rack I go there a lot of cases that I want to cover and in the time that we have together but that might be that the highest profile case that the public might know about there's this film with Matthew McConaughey that came out there is a documentary that's a terrific documentary a you are a central figure in this whole thing could you tell me so you're in Detroit you're not under cover but you were there for twelve years and this had to be something you work on a long time well yeah so in nineteen eighty two the F. B. I. got concurrent jurisdiction with the Drug Enforcement Administration toward drugs and that was about the time that I arrived in Detroit from Pittsburgh and you know I did have some experience in that sort of thing so naturally I was put on the newly developed drug squad and we're anxious to kind of prove ourselves and so we're out there on the street beating the bushes and about the same time this stuff called crack hit the streets and the door was already up you know a violent city but when crack hit the streets it blew up like a bomb and you know people were murdering each other gang members were rising and they were falling you know drive by shootings were extremely common and does so with a very very violent place so we had passed or informants and so forth to go out into space again tell trying to determine what was going on and one of those one of the informants that leader who that was handed to me from another agent was a guy by the name of Richard Bushey and so it is so we wanted to introduce me to where this guy so I could do because another reason pot by the name of a gray shorts and I had a we're coal pace agents on a major drug operation called the curry gang and basically they were operating on the east side of Detroit they control the cocaine traffic on the side and so when I like I will never forget I you know I went into a McDonald's on the west side of Detroit and I walked in and I saw this guy there the introductions were made but he had this hello young freckle faced kid with a who looked to me like he was about fifteen years old and also and it's not uncommon sometimes importance to bring the kids I know sounds bizarre but they do and so we sit down have a Cup of coffee were to chatting getting acquainted so I start asking where she about you know basics you know about the Currys what kind of cars they drive where they hang out or they go who the friends are that sort of thing and I noticed that when I asked some of the more probing questions the father would turn to this kid to get an answer and after about ten minutes I realized know that the real source of the father's information actually came from the kid and I thought it yeah you know it's kind of bizarre and didn't feel real comfortable with it but the father was using his kid basically as a source of informants as a as an informant so that's when I first met him but I pretty much made a determination at that point that I really my comfort level wasn't even though I you know the father permitted it my comfort level at that point was enough to the you know to the where I would feel comfortable operating the kid as the point now the kid didn't do some some other work with some other agents prior to it'll be coming out of the scene I believe and also did some work with us I found out later on with the Detroit police department so but anyway we continued that relationship for a couple of years.

G. agent could do at any moment if you get discovered by the bad guys that's it well it can be it certainly can be but you know one of things I did you know you had mentioned that I really do not play the role of the scum bag but I really don't look like a scumbag I learned early on that in order to be effective you know this role what what I what I did and I think most successful undercover agents do you try to pattern you're undercover persona very much like your own personally in other words I wouldn't go in there and try to be a tough guy and you know that's sort of the same because I'm not but you know I would prefer train myself as somebody that has some connections somebody that was a little smarter and you know the average street thug you know in the mob's got a lot of street thugs who loves tough guys but they don't have a lot of smart guys so that's kind of where I sit in well I know you're being modest but you won a bronze star and a Purple Heart for valor I think you can be a tough guy would you need to well let's just say that I think when they showed his act so well let's talk about white boy Iraq either a lot of cases that I want to cover and in the time that we have together but that might be that the highest profile case that the public might know about there's this film with Matthew McConaughey that came out there is a documentary that's a terrific documentary a you are a central figure in this whole thing could you tell me so you're in Detroit you're not under cover but you were there for twelve years and this had to be something you work on a long time well yeah so in nineteen eighty two the F. B. I. got concurrent jurisdiction with the Drug Enforcement Administration to work drugs and that was about the time that I arrived in Detroit from Pittsburgh and you know I did have some experience in that sort of thing so naturally I was put on the newly developed drug squad and we're anxious to kind of prove ourselves and so we're out there on the street beating the bushes in about the same time this stuff called crack hit the streets and the door was already up you know a violent city but when crack hit the streets it blew up like a bomb and up you know people were murdering each other gang members were rising and they were falling you know drive by shootings were extremely common and does so with a very very violent place sold we had passed and so forth to go out give us basic Intel trying to determine what was going on and one of those one of the informants that later would that was handed to me from another agent was a guy by the name of Richard portion and so he is so we wanted to introduce me to where this guy so I could do because another reason pot by the name of a great Schwartz and I had a we're copays agents on a major drug operation called the curry gang and basically they were operating on the east side of Detroit they control the cocaine traffic on the side and so when I like I will never forget I you know I went into a McDonald's on the west side of Detroit and I walked in and I saw this guy there the introductions were made that he had this hello young freckle faced kid with a who looked to me like he was about fifteen years old and a soul and also a common you know sometimes informants to bring.

"Our navy seals and other special ops groups are great warriors who regularly put their lives on the line to protect our nation however it's apparently time to tighten things up a bit in our navy is doing just that. the families of two coast guardsmen were presented Purple Heart medals this month over a century after their relatives were killed when the cutter they were on was sunk by a German U. boat during World War one these men are truly the best of us said vice admiral Linda Fagan in Alameda California as she presented medals to the families of Edward Kelleher and our third DC who perished aboard the Coast Guard cutter Tampa in England's Bristol channel in September nineteen eighteen for the past two decades officials have been looking for surviving relatives of the one hundred fifteen crew members who perished aboard the Tampa they found nearly half of them the cutter sinking represented the single largest loss of life for the Coast Guard during World War one the cutter was one of six assigned to the navy during the war and was on convoy duty in the European theater. I'm glad we continue to search for relatives so we can properly honor those who serve our nation in combat. construction on the Pentagon funded portion of border fence began this month near Yuma Arizona just as federal officials revealed a list of defense department projects that will be cut to pay for the wall the thirty foot steel fences being built along the Colorado River in a section of border that had a big increase in migrant family crossings earlier this year but slowed to a trickle in recent weeks the exact details are unclear but it appears that will consist of about five miles of fencing the launch of construction this month coincided with the defense department outlining three point six billion dollars in military base projects that were being cut to pay for the wall developments that highlight the political dilemma for many members of Congress who are running for reelection next year on one hand they will have to answer for home state military projects being slashed but at the same time can rally the president's based on border security with the wall projects. our nation needs to be secure period we can't get the wall completed soon enough. lawmakers have scheduled a joint confirmation hearing next week for president trump's nominees to be the next civilian leaders of the army and Air Force the Senate Armed Services Committee plan to hear from both Ryan McCarthy and Barbara Berra this past week according to the committee's calendar however the White House has yet to send over their formal nominations trump announced in June that he planned to nominate McCarthy the current Under Secretary of the army to become the services secretary the president announced via Twitter in may that they're at a former diplomat and business woman was his pick to be the air force's twenty fifth secretary. our military people deserve good civilian leaders these two nominees are good leaders I expect the approval process will go smoothly. Air Force officials are investigating after an eight ten C. thunderbolt fighter jet on a training mission accidentally fired a rocket near Tucson Arizona officials at Davis Monthan Air Force base say that and one fifty six rocket landed in a remote desert wash near mount Graham there were no injuries damage or fires from the accidental launch of the white phosphorus projectile in the jackal military operations area. we train as we fight that means our training is dangerous that said the accidental firing of a rocket even with no resulting damage is unacceptable I'm sure airforce will handle it properly. our airforce won't meet the Pentagon's goal of boosting readiness across its fighter fleet before the fiscal year comes to a close this month lieutenant general mark Kelly deputy chief of staff for operations said that the only fighter that may make that eighty percent mission capable rate a standard set by then defense secretary Jim Mattis last year to achieve better aircraft performance is the F. sixteen fighting falcon during a panel on airforce prioritization general Kelly said quote the F. sixteen MC rate in our active duty units is above eighty percent end quote adding that the service is working with its guard components to reach the goal the F. twenty two raptor and F. thirty five a joint strike fighter fleets will come up short he says but for different reasons the F. twenty two's low observable skin which makes it stealthy has been demanding to maintain meanwhile the F. thirty five has seen a greater operational use even as bases are still standing up F. thirty five missions the Air Force recently deployed a contingent of about thirty five to the Middle East for the first time general Kelly said we learned a lot from this effort saying quote but we didn't do that during that time frame we actually flew more we've flown more every year since two thousand seventeen to get aviators more experience and have them more ready and quote general Mike homes had a fair combat command recently said quote we're looking at the longer term options for addressing low observable maintenance facilities and quote to fix the F. twenty two stealth coating this would help boost its mission capable rate in coming years. I'm glad our air forces moving forward on keeping our combat aircraft flyable they don't do any good they can't leave the ground. hundreds of strangers on a ninety seven year old World War two veteran from Oklahoma who died with no known surviving family motorcycles carrying US flags are part of the service for Herman white who died on August eleventh white was buried next to his wife and son in Perry sixty miles north of Oklahoma City the funeral director reached out to the community after learning that white had no known surviving relatives white married in nineteen forty one join the navy in nineteen forty five and served aboard the USS small fan in the Pacific he then returned to Oklahoma and worked in the oil and gas fields the couple had a son in nineteen fifty one whites wife died in nineteen ninety eight their son in nineteen ninety nine thank you America for honoring this World War two hero and that's the news. this is for any young coming up on from one to freedom or share comments by the colonel and then we'll enjoy.

C. T. we both do the same thing when it comes to controlling nurse right see see do you have the additional duty of during Ford air traffic control so they're charged with using airfields going in and bring in and the first aircraft to to set up the Forder base yeah I want to get into that when we we talk about when you guys came into a rack and set up an airfield in in in our work things like something like that going back to da Dan I'm going to ask if you could give us a little background a little bit more on what isis is or was and how can a we left Iraq in two thousand and eleven so how did we get pulled back in I guess is was with one from the remnants of the old I'll cry in Iraq that US forces really beat as a part of the surge in two thousand seven tell US forces left Iraq in two thousand eleven most of al Qaeda in Iraq in Iraq was or H. you why it was called back then was was on the run but during the pre assigned at the U. S. US forces left it really gave H. you why some breathing space and telling they were able to reconstitute until extent and helped to form this large organization on his arm and I was with ensign which part of the opposition groups to the Syrian president president Bashar Assad in fact they were like over twelve hundred different groups that were posing and when I was in Jordan in two thousand thirteen were monitoring all sorts of groups and one of our guys but ISIS quickly became one of the most dangerous and most organized both legal and won a larger organizations they thought not only is our son but also with determined to fight the Shia led government in Iraq so I should begin to grow in and twelve twelve two thousand thirteen and then first it kind of weird said in early two thousand fourteen by taking collision most observers at the time thought okay directly on the can handle them and then when in June June ninth two thousand fourteen they attacked into more so turn northern northeastern Iraq northwestern Iraq because a lot of concern because he took over Iraq's second largest city of Mosel and they were a very barbaric group the had or use sure yeah as far as their law sharia law and they've been big building claimed the formation of the caliphate which for many Muslims in the Middle East that resonated to over a thousand years ago when there was a caliphate in that area right so that actually resonate with people and actually people even moderate initially in some ways supported on and tell their you know barbaric behavior how they were and treating anybody took over if you want falling their version of Islam they would give you a choice to convert or show you and they were doing all sorts of barbaric things beheading people what they did to the city's up in northern Iraq was was very close to genocide right you were we're talking with that damn petard in and west Bryant the authors of hunting the caliphate actually which is America's war on ISIS and the dawn of the strike cell which will get into a little bit if you want to get in on the conversation out there you can give us a call here on veterans radio at seven three four eight two to sixteen hundred I wanted to talk a little bit about what you what you just mentioned general of about the genocide in in northern Iraq because that seem to be one of the big motivators to get us re involved in fact the genocide against knowing he is hitting but also many of the Kurds in northern Iraq it was around mount Sinjar and or some door mountain so the first airstrikes against hi this is Walter white's by president Obama sectors of pre designed it in the book between June of two thousand fourteen and August two thousand fourteen about a six week period were rivers crush free because we wanted to start executing airstrikes against ISIS as soon as possible but that time we were not authorized to do that for many reasons and then again does come out the book also right it was some mistakes of ISIS that helped us helped us to actually be able to create the opportunity to have those airstrikes and one was the manager in operations center around mount Sinjar when well over twenty thousand using these and Kurds were trapped on mountain and your which was surrounded by ISIS fighters able to bring in air strikes to support them and then ISIS then turn around and made another should you care and that was to attack the Kurds take over the capital the peel in August two thousand fourteen and that's when the air strikes began at four west point really came into it's gonna spring and and and Wes about that could you tell us you know we've heard all of these things about drones and so forth but we've never really witnessed what you used to both you gentlemen did well especially with the killing of those those eighty people are requesting you to describe what was going on when you first got there well what what happened was Obama it set up this force called the craft we refer to it as a crip it's actually acronym for the crisis response force that consisted of seals green berets airforce special operators unfortunately not the marines the marines definitely you know have their their place in our fights but under the special operations command the marines at that time were not aligning with the crest well I should point out to our listeners that that that this was not and a ground force in are you guys weren't going in there with the troops in going in there Intel full bore in and taking him on that way this is this was almost an entirely an airforce their war for for you especially west and well yeah it's interesting you say that when we first went in no one knew what what it was gonna be at all in fact my unit is this in the book to you as you know what we were getting ready to go to our standard rotation which was mostly concentrating Afghanistan little bit of some operations in Africa as well so I was actually getting ready to go to Afghanistan with much of the other guys we have been getting Intel updates on isis for a couple weeks and we just thought it was this kind of friends group okay you know nothing will come of it and suddenly it just blew up and you know I remember I got a call from my a superintendent saying Hey show up tomorrow your missions change I go in you know the next day and get real they kind of split our team I've got to go in Afghanistan verses purses now this new thing with isis and read a whole bunch of other guys from other units because we're not even the cover a whole nother theater and we weren't told much not because it was it was secretive because nobody knew so it was hate you're going and the only thing we knew was going to the crystals going into secure Baghdad specifically the embassy in the US embassy and the two capital of Baghdad Iraq being the capital of Iraq and then usually referred bill as the northern capital of Kurdistan and really that was it from there it was a lot of chaos for quite a few weeks what well the whole special operations component as well as Jennifer towards command component there in the embassy was really all trying to figure out what we would end up doing on top of what isis was about how strong they were.

"Oh for sure. So my my number one my number one, the ugly. The worst film of the year, we talked with the editing. This movie has the editing. I have ever seen in my life ever. Yes. Mild twenty mile. But I've heard so much about my God. Like, so WWE women's champion. We're gonna get me just both gonna talk about this. Because my number one. Okay. So rocketfire. One of the greatest living. I will preface this one of the greatest living cinema. Martial artists in EKO ice. Yeah. Like he is phenomenal the rate. I'm not in my head like he he has a legitimate martial artists like real real martial artists. And especially on film. It works it blends similar to like on Bach. You know, we have Tony jaw who developed martial arts a little bit later in life when he got into it. But on Fillmore like this guy knows exactly is doing it works. This movie is so embarrassingly offensive to his martial arts ability and not just that like you take. And there's a clip, and Tim and I both shared it on Twitter where he is in a labora-, not even a Haas. Yeah. We don't get as a hospital. No because they're at like a thumb like consulate place. Right. So. An embassy. But yet somehow there's a hospital down there. This this three minute. Fight scene. Literally has a cut every three seconds every five seconds where he will go to like swing part of the bed, and we'll go from a camera shot looking at him swing mid swing. It cuts three different times to what he is actually hitting. And it is embarrassing. Listen, I don't mind the cuts that sequence. Oh, cool. The most frustrating part of the sequence is he breaks guys lake. Oh, yeah. How you see it break? Right com factor. Then he gets don't the window. And then we see the guy get up and like he's on his feet again my God. And I was like, well, wait a minute. And they just you break his leg. But now, he's only two people in the room. He's fighting and there's both fighting again, I'm like oh. So you just shot a bunch of stuff. We're going to throw this other and make it work. There is a scene is probably the phrase this set a lot when describing this film retailers. Can I just I just want to set the stage for listening? I am sitting essentially at the top of a triangle, and both John and Tim have turned. And they're almost trying to sell me like time. Yeah. How bad this is eating all of this. Oh, okay. Continue to tell you about this timeshare. Yes. We call it mile twenty two years. There's there's the keep cutting back to whatever interview that that that Mark Wahlberg characters having it a non linear storytelling. Tries to be not really verbal diarrhea. The just right talking fast and being Wahlberg. And none of it makes any sense. Why are we and it keeps doing that? And so there's a big spoil this movie. There's a guilty in that this woman wants revenge for this hit this thing that have the beginning of the movie, right? Okay. Does intelligence group? They should find out that this woman is like some Russian whatever the right? How do they not like nothing's how would you not know because this whole movies you guys getting intelligence and being like the special ops group? But yet that's something that you just over everyone overlooked no-one found this. No that she's this thing they know everything about the interior of the house. They know everything about the thing that they're doing in the house. They like nothing about the people now. But apparently. Yeah, Mark Wahlberg kill somebody who cares and it just line of duty. And then they're like, but wait who was that, man? He killed. So you're not idea the people in the house there's seen in this movie where the main guy is like he's just following Walberg around. Oh, he would tell. Everybody's got like a Thanos style. Just popping up. Really? Oh, yeah. Always there at the end of the movie.

"Number one move out of here. That would be spike Lee's black klansman, which is the true story of a guy who a black police officer who joined the KKK and actually got a card to prove it, and and and had to work with a white police officers pretend to be him in order to actually do personal meanings that actually interacted with David Duke and everything it's relevant movie. Even though it takes place in the seventies. A very well done easily. Spike Lee's best film since Malcolm X, it's one that doesn't come to mind for me. I'm assuming it was released nationally, and it was everywhere. Yeah. It came up this summer. It was another one that you're not seeing in the theaters right now because I think it was a June relief. And I'm glad that some award. Are keeping it in mind. It's showing up there on academy. It's going to show up an Academy Awards as well. Okay. We're talking to Kevin car one of the guys at the movies the best and worst movies of the year. Let's talk about the worst movies of the year. Your number three worst movie of the year. Well, I'm gonna have to say that would be strangers pray at night, I'm a huge fan of horror movies. Just not this one. It was a sequel to the strangers from two thousand eight and it's just sort of nihilistic of. Knock a home invasion because it takes place in the campground. It's just it's it's a terrible. Even the first strangers wasn't that good into huge come down from that the second worst movie of the year. Here's one that people probably forgot came out this year, and that would be fifty shades freed, and that is the latest and last thank God. Shades of grey movie. And it's it's such a terrible story that the terrorists by the time. You get to the end the movie sunk as well. It's it's this is a terrible franchise. And I'm glad to see it's over. Okay. We're up to the worst movie of the year. And what was your criteria that made this movie the worst movies that hit the top of the worst list for me are the ones that I it squirm in the seat? And I can't wait to get out of. And and I have to say, I'm actually this is a tie between two movies. That are totally completely similar came out months apart mild twenty two with Mark Wahlberg as as a as a sort of an elite special ops group that is not a nice people at all. And then Denna thieves which came out like in January with Gerard Butler as dirty cops. So you had these two. Easy. Disgusting groups of people being heroes in movies, and it book end of the year. And that's why they both get the top spot from me. Kevin car fat guys at the movie, I'm going to put you on the spot one final question big movie for twenty nineteen. What are you? What are you waiting for? What what do you anticipate and what your favorite this coming year? Well, of course, I can't wait to see avengers endgame. I I'm waiting to see how that ends. Also, the new Star Wars movie. There's a lot of stuff that I'm looking forward to in two thousand nineteen but it's all the big blockbuster stuff. Kevin thanks for all you did this past year.

"Wyler Honda dot com. Sherry preston. With us from ABC news this morning in New York. It's okay. For me to do some couch surfing today. Not exactly you get up and change the channels like they used to back in the fifties count that may count. Yeah. The department of health and human services that with new guidelines for physical activity for all Americans is first one published in ten years, and what the the influx of all these fitness trackers and smartphones has done it's got them to realize that if we just exercise them little tiny bits like maybe walking walking in the far end of the WalMart parking lot and walking up to the store accounts is something the thing we need one hundred. Fifty minutes of moderate exercise a week or seventy five of aerobic exercise, really the, but they say, honestly, if you can just get up and move, you know, it could be sit less and move more slam. So you can think of that way, I just sort of made that up helping human services. So if you want that you can use it slam. I mean just think about that just park further away and that count walk a little bit more get up off the couch just do more. All right. And is it on a daily basis or three times a week or do? They know what they're saying. Is it doesn't they want to get more people to do even just a little bit rather than the people who already exercise getting them to do more or to keep doing that? If people can just do a little bit. Because twenty percent of Americans is all it is that get this amount of exercise. Okay. In a week a hundred and fifty minutes of moderate exercise, just walking you know, what I mean just. Grocery shopping, just you know, what I mean working in your garden that count hundred and fifty minutes a week about twenty minutes a day. Just doing it. Simple. Taking the steps. Instead of the elevator to your car at night. Taking the steps upstairs from the third floor. You know, it's not that far of a walk third floor. And sometimes you're amazed. Like you look at your phone. You're like, oh my gosh. I've only walked six hundred steps today. What kind of a slob? Am I and then you go? Well, you know, I can walk a little bit further. I can you know, like when you go to see. Someplace like, WalMart, and you're going to store and your like, you'll get the parking lot. You spend your time. How much time do you spend looking for that very closest space when you just talked a little fritter away. It'd be better for your heart to walk it. And you know, you get the health benefits, and you know, you it's okay. Car might not get hit eater walking from the couch to the fridge to get another beer. Does that count? I say, yes. The weekend. I say, yes, Sherry Preston. Thanks so much. Okay. Take care, Sherry Preston. ABC news with us this morning on New Year's day. Steve Hawkins in here. Kevin car will have the best and worst movies of the year next. But first up though, we've got Ricky chino in here. Covering the six o'clock news lot shootings. Yeah. Cincinnati police telling our partners at channel nine that. It's been a chaotic night after a pretty busy day yesterday. First off the there were two shootings yesterday. One in Evanston, police were called to Hewitt, dear Walden avenue after a man showed up at UC medical saying that that's where he was shot in the torso. He was then admitted is in critical condition following surgery. Meanwhile, another shooting in under investigation in east. Westwood police say the twenty nine year old Sean Phillips was fatally shot on McHenry near Baltimore. Then after the ball dropped three people were hurt in two other shootings. Two men shot in the eight hundred block of Hermosa avenue in west price hill, one remains in critical condition at UC medical the other is stable, and then a juvenile was shot in the five hundred block of hickory street in Avondale and taken to children's hospital. No suspects in any of these cases, so far so police stretch then to start off twenty nineteen so far, and if you can help in any of these cases, call crime stoppers the three five to thirty forty people. This is no way to start come on. Yeah. We were hoping these were fireworks. What's going on at six federal workers are now suing the Trump administration over the partial shutdown. We'll have those details coming up a Kevin car. One of our fat guys at the movies with us. Hey, good morning and happy new year. Happy new year to you. How are you doing today? Good. Good. Good. Good good. I thought we we always talk about movies. Every time we talk to you. I wanna talk about your favorite and least favorite movies. The best movies of the year. I will do number three. What do you think? Well, number three, I'm to pick as a Iowa dogs, which were they stop motion animated film by by Wes Anderson. It is a out of the boxing came out actually earlier in the year, and it it's about these sort of this alternate reality where in Japan, the had a dog flu, and they put all the dogs onto an island told from the dog's point of view is they're trying to get back on back to the island and sort of revitalize themselves out of the box. It's different. It's not a kids movie because it is a little bit harsh at times. But it's it's unlike anything you're going to see what it seen it all this year. So that's my number three number two movie of the year. This is another animated film. I absolutely love animation kinda came as a big surprise. It came at the end of the year. And that would be Spiderman into the spider verse really in a year of superhero movies with everything from Black Panther to eventers 0, Warren deadpool two, and it was the Spiderman animated film that I thought was kissed inner. Innovative in different. And and and really brought the comic books to life before a more than anything else. I've seen before to get on your best list. Is it innovation and being different? Is that what you're looking for? I usually have a bunch of animation on my on my top ten list, some some years not. But yeah, I do love animation. But there's other things, and let's talk about number one because it's not an animated film. Number one moved out here. That would be spike Lee's black klansman, which is the true story of a guy who a black officer who joined the KKK and actually got a card to prove it, and and had to work with a white police officers pretend to be him in order to actually do personal meanings that actually interacted with David Duke and everything it's a relevant movie. Even though it takes place in the seventies. A very well done easily. Spike Lee's best film since Malcolm X, it's one that doesn't come to mind for me. I'm assuming it was released nationally, and it was everywhere. Yeah. It came up to summer. It was another one that you're not seeing in the theaters right now because I think it was a June relief. And I'm glad that some award. Burra groups are keeping in mind. It's showing up there on academy. It's gonna show up any kademi awards as well. Okay. We're talking to Kevin car one of the guys at the movies the best and worst movies of the year. Let's talk about the worst movies of the year. Your number three worst movie of the year. Well, I'm gonna have to say that would be strangers pray at night, I'm a huge fan of horror movies. Just not this one. It was a sequel to the strangers from two thousand eight and it's just sort of nihilistic of not a home invasion because it takes place in a campground. It's just it's it's a terrible. Even the first strangers wasn't that good. And it's a huge come down the second worst movie of the year. Here's one that people probably got came out this year, and that would be fifty shades freed, and that is the latest and last thank God. A great movie. And it's it's such a terrible story deteriorates by the time. You get to the end the movie sunk as well. It's it's this is a terrible franchise. And I'm glad to see it's over. Okay. We're up to the worst movie of the year. And what what was your criteria that made this movie the worst movies that hit the top of the worst list for me are the ones that I it squirm in the seat? And I can't wait to get out of. And and I have to say, I'm actually this is a tie between two movies. That are totally completely similar came out months apart mild twenty two with Mark Wahlberg as as a as a sort of a leap special ops group that is not a a nice people at all. And then Denna thieves which came out like in January with Gerard Butler as dirty cops. So you had these two just easy disgusting groups of people being heroes in movies, and it book end of the year. And that's why they both get the top spot for me. All right. Kevin Kerr fat guys at the movie, I'm going to put you on the spot one final question big movie for twenty nineteen. What are you? What are you waiting for? What what are you anticipating? What's your favorite this coming year? Well, of course, I can't wait to see avengers and game. I'm waiting to see how that ends. Also, the new Star Wars movie. There's a lot of stuff that I'm looking forward to in two thousand nineteen but it's all the big blockbuster stuff. Kevin thanks for all you did this past year. We look forward to hearing more movies in two thousand nine hundred man hour. We'll talk to you later. Kevin Carfax is at the movies with us on New Year's day. I've got your nine I warning weather forecast in sixty seconds. Cincinnati. Welcome to save yourself with gyco. You say goodbye to somebody. But then unfortunately, you both walk in the same.
