Washington DC's National Cathedral Hosts Virtual Presidential Inaugural Prayer Service

"Joined in a clear call today for reform at the National Prayer Service for President Biden and Vice President Harris NPR's Tom Johnson says the service was held virtually and featured more than two dozen speakers. A prayer service for an incoming president has been a tradition since the days of George Washington. The idea is to ask divine blessing for the new administration. But this year service was sharper than those of the past, with a more urgent message and speakers addressing with the Reverend William Barber in his sermon called five interlocking injustices, systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, denial of health care. War economy and the false, distorted marred narrative of religious nationalism. The speakers were chosen by the Biden Presidential Inaugural Committee and the clergy of the National Cathedral.

The Trump Administration's Policies in Afghanistan and Africa

"The foundation for the Defense of Democracies. He's a senior fellow keeps the Long word journal with Tom Johnson and his colleagues. We go immediately to Afghanistan because here during the Republican convention We want to explicate what we can of the Republican intention if it is successful, winning a second term for President Trump and then to remark upon thee. Trump administration's policies in Africa, particularly when it comes to the kind of length organization Al Shabaab on the attack. Billa Very good evening to Afghanistan, you and Tom for many weeks and months now. Have illustrated that the trump policy from the first term was to make a deal with the Taliban and withdraw as much of the American presidents as possible. And hope for the best. I do not expect the Republicans toe have another direction is your sense bill that the military is quit with Afghanistan? As much as the political apparatus is quit, are there of two minds here? Good evening to you, Bill. Good evening, John. Yes. So I agree with you. The Trump Administration is not going to change policy in Afghanistan, Um, barring some type of major events. Um, it's it's just both sides of the aisle are pushing the end The endless wars narrative, which, of course is ridiculous, because the jihadists have a say, and they're going to keep fighting when we leave, of course. We could. You could say something like we wantto end our involvement in these wars. Fine, But the wars will continue our enemies get a vote, and they're nowhere near tired of fighting. The U. S. First the U. S military goes for Afghanistan. Give US military as a whole. Once out of Afghanistan, it's been a drain on their resource is on their energy. Um, I don't. I think they don't see an end. There. They feel again. I'm not speaking for the entire military. And this was the sense I get from millet, you know, from top military leaders. Who have basically signed on signed off on this policy. There's been no objection publicly to this policy of, uh, negotiating with the Taliban and cutting a deal with them, even though they support Al Qaeda. In the meantime, the Taliban and there is Taliban Afghanistan. In several iterations, there's Taliban, Pakistan and several generations the Taliban is preparing for Nearly triumph, but rule I follow from your posting at long word general that Tariq eat Taliban. Pakistan is congratulating the Muslim UMA in general and the Mujahideen in particular on the merger of the two main groups of jihad in Pakistan. Can we regard this as a temporary merger because and they'll be back to fighting over cities or is there some collective push now for the Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghanistan Taliban to work together? So I think there's a push for the Pakistani Taliban in the Afghan Taliban already work close together, Um they Pakistani Taliban fighters have refocused their efforts to Afghanistan. After Pakistani military operations against them. Remember the Pakistanis play a double game? You're You're a good jihadist If you fight in Afghanistan are cashmere, but you're bad jihadists in the fight against the Pakistani state. So this merger that came up really? I found a little surprising because I could point back to a statement in 2015, where the one of the two groups of it's called One of them's Hezbollah, Har. Um, you know, so it had announced that it already merged with the movement of the calibre, or should I say there were ties broken during the turmoil back in 14 4015 with Mullah Omar staffed and when Melissa was alone took over the Pakistani Taliban. Ah, lot of inside baseball, but I won't go into but they had already announced that they had reunited, so something has happened here. Within the last five years. I think this is really sort of There was probably some kind of personality dispute, and I think a lot of this is for propaganda anyway. Really, to just say, hey, look, we're all unified. We're all going to, you know, operate under the same command when I think essentially they were doing the same thing. I go to Africa because you are a U is a long word General have resource is to cover the story of Al Shabaab. We spoke recently of their surprisingly professional looking videos of their recruiting on their training. Now we have a report from long word general of Al Shabaab on the attack hotel military base suicide assault, reminding me that this is a very sophisticated outfit trained with Al Qaeda, Sze Ah complex attacks as Al Shabaab growing and strength to your measure, it does the next Trump administration need to pour more resource is or get out as well. Yes. Oh, Africa has always been fascinating, particularly Somalia. I think some outside of the Taliban Shabbab is the most effective jihadist insurgency in the world. They have They continually take the fight to the rump some Somali government they control 25% of the country despite the fact that you have the African Union and the US and what they could piece together the Somali military and police. To oppose them, and they're there have very good propaganda. As you noted, It's improved a lot over the years and there are very effective at conducting their attacks and keeping their their fighters. Trained and keeping them in the rank and file. Remember, there's been an attempt by the Islamic state to poach from Shabaab, but it's been largely unsuccessful. Not only did they have they conducted major attacks on military bases and hotels, yet another town this one outside of the town of Baidoa, which eyes in sorry the city. If I go, it's probably the second largest city in southern Somalia. Um they took over the town after the Somali military withdrew in the Somali military withdrew from that town because Shabaab was besieging it, so I think Um, I always reluctant to say they're growing in strength. Thes groups have sort of There's an Evan flow to the fighting, and sometimes particularly went outside groups. When the African Union and the US start piling on them. They have some issues, but they're able to await it out. That's the one thing these John, one of the several things that they have. To their advantage. They have the time. You know, that old saying goes, we have all the clocks, but they have all the time While they're very patient in their fight. They're very patient in their jihad. While we have men may have sophisticated military equipment, that's the clocks. They have the time and patients in the will to fight these battles, not enough terms of the US election cycles but in terms of decades Built in general. Now we're at the crossroads for another administration, either, Mr Trump second. Mr Biden's first. Is there any indication pattern worldwide that Al Qaeda is waiting for that decision, or are they staying on the offensive? Matt, no matter who wins. Yeah, I think there are on the offensive. No matter who wins. They do follow the political situation here, but I think they've come to the conclusion that this is just my opinion here. But I think they've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter again that end the endless wars narrative and and the actions by the U. S government over two successive administrations. Policies of withdrawn, scaled down and whatnot would look to us is withdrawing troops from Iraq. It just closed that the major based ontology or at least US personnel being at that base. Almost 2000 troops are coming out of there. Um, they see this all and nature there taking it all in, and they realized that the end of our fight in administration is not going to counter act. These measures. Bill Rocha

"I'm John that Sir Tom Johnson the foundation for the defense of democracy is here in discussing Afghanistan because of the assumption that the US and its allies are stepping back from the long conflict against Taliban how about Syria then Syria is a threat to Israel our ally to Jordan are along to Lebanon a broken country to Turkey a member of NATO which is and and and them at the moment in a conflict over Moscow and Washington competing weapons systems and Iraq so that Syria is the darkness visible the holes in the story we have talked about Iran's commitment to Syria to Assad and Russia's commitment to Iran and Syria but what about al Qaeda in Syria Tom do we have knowledge of our cat as many years ago the Obama administration made much to do about bombing outside in Syria are they still there they're very much there John they are in fact over the last couple weeks one of the main okay groups in Syria has been very active in fighting Assad forces in la Tapia and Hama those two provinces which are flying in the province was sort of the central hub for the jobless another and insurgents or clinical rebels in Syria including some non Jodhi still but the bottom line is that the card is very active in you can see just the torrent of content and okay so Graham channels advertise in the fighting the a major fund raising campaigns going on right now to to sort of keep fueling the fight and they're trying to slow the presumed pending assault on it live province by basically taking the fight to aside in the flint sort of flanking areas and some of the images of been put out by al Qaeda from the sporting a very graphic showing taking out dozens of Assad's forces in different rates in both those provinces Syria is a pawn of larger forces I'm thinking of Russia and Iran I'm also thinking of China's commitments to Syria does al Qaeda have a different plan for Syria than it does for those threatened central Asian and south Asian states well you know it's a great question John in fact one of the big controversies in all kind of circles has been the degree to which jockeys can cooperate with Turkey because obviously Turkey has been a very offered a permissive environment for the job throughout much of the Syrian war not always but much of the time and of course you have seen your ISIS officials of flood there and been operating event in a five by the US treasury department as operating from inside Turkey you have you have very sophisticated outside actors who have operated there as well but one of the big arguments that has emerged is that some parts of all guys some all kind of guys basically disagree with others who other jockeys who are working more closely with Turkey mainly because they think the Turkey alternately sell them out because it's a NATO part of NATO and then has a relationship with the U. S. B. ultimately think you can't trust Turkey but the damage that's been made especially in the province by some of Johnny's is that Hey look we what they're saying is we need Turkey order protect us we don't have we don't stand a chance against Russia and the side mirror on if they decide to pound a lid province into submission and so it's a it's a gambit that has had some success I would say but it remains to be seen how successful you tell me that there's a your poll as statements about the threat out of Syria how does it cover Tom you know it's amazing you're polling June announces major bust of al Qaeda organization and all that organization Spain there was raising cash for all kind of most of what they describe as okay terrace malicious in it let the northwestern province of their lives and you know that Americans the taping it stands out to me described this all kind of organization this is the worst in Europe on now as part of a huge international clandestine structure with the aim of attacking western economic system as a form of terrorism now I feel as words ending well that's that's a pretty heavy or weedy statement from Europe all talking about these these buster they basically busted these illegal businesses are busy there were legal to using illegal means to generate cash well kinda and this thing is this is part of a huge international clandestine system that all clad is running the operations through it makes you really wonder you know after all these years that you know a lot of Americans I think are probably tired of hearing about ida surely the policy Quinn quarter leads are they don't want to deal with this but yet you get things like this in your poll just last month telling you wait a minute there still some there's still looming threat there and al Qaeda is it boasting about its plans in Europe where is this all around the edges Tom we have thirty seconds Europe is like add your posting it says its clandestine most of what's happening in Europe is under the radar right now by design but for all kinds he's not making videos about it or make writing letters about his plans in your no no it's not Tom Johnson of the foundation for the defense of democracy al Qaeda.
