"I know the mutual respect you two had for each other, but still it was getting information. Get me intelligence once the next attack coming, it's easy for us to say, Well, there was no major attack. There was no threat That's not true. Correct. It's not true at all. You know, the president felt, you know, And if he were talking to you right now, I think he would say this right? He felt he feels that the president's number one job is to protect the American people. I happen to agree with them. That is the president's number one job, and he thought he failed that day, right and On he you know, he was determined not to let that happen again. And what happened on 9 11 wasn't the only Al Qaeda plot to attack the homeland. There were multiple applause. There was so much threat reporting in the months after 9 11 that George Tenet and I, When we walked from his office in the old Executive office building across the wet West Executive Avenue into the West Wing. We would look at each other and we would literally say Brian, we would say is this the day we're going to get hit again? And it was not just Intelligence reporting about plans to attack the United States. There was intelligence reporting about Bin Laden trying to acquire a Pakistani nuclear weapons. Right and Al Qaeda working on biological weapons and chemical weapons. So you know that that that the context of the Times was you could not Create a more tense situation right for a president who had just suffered the worst attack. On the homeland in the history of the country. And here, his intelligence briefer every morning is bringing him these additional threats. The other thing you guys went out of the way to do is say this attack is not an old Muslims. You did a lot of reach outreach to Muslim communities. We're not going to make this a religious war. I remember that being very cognizant. You guys going out of your way to do that? In retrospect, Did you ever expect the Taliban to fall so quick? And was the original plan to get out quick. So the plan right? And this was a CIA plan. In fact, at the at Camp David on September, 15th Saturday after 9 11 only five days, doctors After 9 11. You know, there was a National Security Council meeting and the CIA was the only organization to bring a plan to the table. And it wasn't because we were that good. It was because Sandy Berger, and the last months of the Clinton administration had asked us for a plan, he said to us If you were unconstrained by resources, and if you were unconstrained by covert action authorities in other words, if you can do anything you wanted, what would you do to degrade this group? And so we put together this this Package that we call the Blue Sky Memo right if we could have everything we wanted. Um Clinton Administration ended before anybody could consider that. And then it shat on on the shelf for a while, but on 9 11, we pulled it out and dusted it off, and we study it. President Bush. Here it is. Here's the plan, and he thought about it for one day, and he said, You know, go. I want you guys to be the first end. And the plan was plan was really simple. The plan was to become the insurgents in Afghanistan. The plan was to work with a group called the Northern Alliance, which the Taliban had never been able to bring under control to work with them. They had a bit of a military and to work with them and drive south towards Kabul. And then in the southern part of the country to create an uprising among the tribes in the southern part of the country, and we did both of those things. So we came at Kabul from both directions, and I think The Taliban was surprised by the speed. They were surprised by the two fronts. They were surprised by American air power. So it wasn't just see a on the ground. It was U. S special forces who are with us who are calling in air strikes on Taliban positions? Yeah. So by the one of the ironies here is by the end of December early January. We had driven the Taliban from power. And all of the Al Qaeda guys in Afghanistan were either dead. Captured or they had escaped and gone off to various places, mostly to Pakistan. Showed by the end of December. Early gang are very Al Qaeda is no longer in Afghanistan. So you know that for me is round one. And we won round one and we want it quickly, um and convincingly. Um, you know the the goal change. Subsequently, as you know, and that's the war. We ended up losing. Almost by choice. I mean, you guys didn't win it. You know, afterwards they didn't win a lose a tactical battle. It was a matter of not stopping the outside sources that were fueling and sustaining the Taliban, which is Pakistan. And does that remain like Yeah. I mean, if you look at Pakistan right now, it's still is the problem. I mean, today there, leading the charge to wipe out what was left of what we might call the Northern Alliance. So this week so that they are the ones that got. Hani was complaining about Two now public transcript to Millie and Biden President Biden, saying the Pakistanis have helped bring in 10 to 15,000 terrorist groups is a full blown insurgency. Pakistan. Where was bin Laden? Pakistan? Yeah, let me take two things about this one is is, you know I went to visit our folks see a spokes in Afghanistan. It doesn't of times you know, I felt that was really important to go see them on the front lines..

Public transcript to Millie and Biden President Biden, saying the Pakistanis have helped bring in 10 to 15,000 terrorist groups is a full blown insurgency. Pakistan. Where was bin Laden? Pakistan? Yeah, let me say two things about this one is is, you know I went to visit our folks see a spokes in Afghanistan. It doesn't have times. You know, I thought that was really important to go see them on the front lines. And whenever I did, that I would see President Karzai and he would always raised with me Pakistan and what the Pakistanis were doing to help the Taliban. And he was absolutely right. Every time you raised it, he was absolutely right. He was deeply frustrated. The other thing, I'll tell you is I heard President Obama in the sitting room numerous times asked his generals. Um, you know, Al Qaeda is in Pakistan. Being protected by the Pakistanis. You know, we're in Afghanistan, right and Al Qaeda across the border in Pakistan. You know, this doesn't There's there's there's an income groups here right on the problem is Pakistan. The other thing I'll say here, though. Is that I think all of this is going to blow back on the Pakistanis in a huge way. So there's a group called the Pakistani Taliban. And the Pakistani Taliban. The Pakistanis. And they want to overthrow the Pakistani government. And when we had 100,000 troops in Afghanistan, they were in Pakistan, so they were easy for the packs to get at. Well, now they've moved. Into Afghanistan and their welcomes there, but the Taliban now they're coming across the border from Afghanistan into Pakistan, attacking the Pakistanis. And try to overthrow the Pakistani state. So I'm deeply concerned about the stability of Pakistan, right a country that's got nuclear weapons, right, So I think the Pakistanis are ultimately going to pay the price. For the 20 years of horrific policies that they have pursued. I hope so, Mike because there will be justice because they are diabolical and playing both ends. I know that Not all bad but man, they are very bad. Uh And I just don't know if that if that country will ever change, But you would know better, Mike your perspective, But we will today but also of yesterday, so final thought. I was just going to say, but at the end of the day, you don't want a extremist government in Islamabad with nuclear weapons, right? They don't want that. I hear you the ultimate disaster. I feel a lot better if you were back in the CIA, but you probably make it a lot more money now and you can sleep nights. Mike Morrell of former for acting deputy director of the CIA, best selling author and an analyst who serves as the president, daily briefer. George W. Bush on 9 11, 2000 and 1 20 years ago, Mike, Thank you. You're welcome, Brian. Great to be with you. Back in a moment. It's Brian Kilmeade. Helping others was important to co.

"This comes from the Arizona Republic. The music in the background is theirs as well. But this is a GOP chairwoman, AZ GOP chairwoman Kelli Ward. Hey, clans, it's Kelli Ward. I just talked to President Trump and he he would like me to talk to you. And also the if he didn't give you a call to discuss what's happening on the ground in America. Me a call back when you can't think like So that was Kelli Ward as a surrogate for the president. The United States and clinic. Men did not take a call from the White House and he was on CNN. They asked him Why would you not take a call at that time from the president? This is the most powerful office and the most powerful man in the land. And it would have been great to have a conversation of a different type. But After seeing what was going on in Georgia. As I said, clearly, if I'm not willing to tape a president, I'm not willing to talk to a president. I am chair. I was the chairman of a board that all of us had to make decisions on and I did not want Any of my colleagues thinking I was having export aid communications at all to frame a boat, So that's that's why I I avoided it. I will tell you that, Um, I've made no bones about the fact that I know Clint Hickman. We had lunch last week or the week before. And, uh, I've always thought the world of Clint Hickman and this is the part of this equation. That people don't know. Nor do they understand. Um you get a snapshot of something you make assumptions about someone or a group of people, and then you run with that because of the emotion of the situation. For everybody out there that believes that the election was stolen. I completely understand the passion and I've never made fun of anybody that believes that the election is stolen. It is the most important office in the world, In my opinion, is the president of the United States. We are still the world leader when it comes to the military in the economy and the and the influence So I understand the passion I absolutely do. But when Clint Hickman and I'm saying specifically him, but other members as well, But Clint Hickman was hammered for something that he didn't deserve to be hammered for, Um Clinton, Hickman has been and forget the politics of conservatism versus liberalism. He's just a good guy that the Hickman family has done so much in this state of Arizona. Why would they become traders? Why would a Republican Board of Supervisors president all of a sudden become traders? Um, family does very well in the business that they're in. Um, you know, they've been a farm chicken egg farmers for generations, So it's not like they're hurting for money. All these things that play into this where people make these things up out of whole cloth, they fed balance the chickens and all this other stuff. Clinton Hickman's family, the charitable work that I've done with them, and I haven't done very much, But when I would go to events they would be there. Um, we fed families from the National Guard one year All of that was the doing of Clinton, Hickman and his family getting food growers in Arizona to put that together. I did a motors a ride. One day It was a ride for Special Olympics. I believe Not only did they show up just to, you know, deliver eggs for breakfast that morning. The Hickman family was cooking breakfast that morning for all the people there for the ride free of charge, by the way that we're not charging for the breakfast. Um my point is the snapshot that people have of Clinton. Hickman and his family. Now by extension is a false narrative, and it's happening because of politics. It's happening because people want to make assumptions that Clint Hickman didn't take a call from the president of United States. Therefore, he's a traitor. He was trying to do his job after what was going on in Georgia. He didn't think it was the right thing to do as the president of the board, and everybody ought to be able to respect that. Matter Of fact he talks about was he stonewalling the president? I got a phone call from the White House switchboard. I might have to say him all of these people that they called me. It wasn't stonewalling. We weren't in litigation at all These points. It was getting hard to keep track of. I believe. At one point, there were eight cases being litigated and Maricopa County was finding themselves in the courtroom. Uh, just, uh, you know, at all times, so I wanted to make sure that I was not having conversations outside of that. So that was a guy just trying to do his job. We've got more voice mails. Rudy Giuliani left a voicemail for Bill Gates. Um, the White House operator. Well, you'll hear that one of the leading a voicemail for Clinton Hickman. So what they were trying to do was avoid a conflict after what happened in Georgia and in other places, and I don't blame them and whether or not you believe the election was stolen. People still have a job to do, and I've said this before, I'll say it again. If it were the other way around, and the other political party from the ones who believe that this election was stolen were the ones that.

"And we all know I mean, we all went to school and we didn't go to M I T but went to school, and we learned that the main ingredient in papers, wood pulp, but longer is couldn't go out and cut down trees. I mean, and you can social distance when you're cutting down a tree. That's a defeat. I I mean, I just I think you can, you know, um, but this this is the kind of stuff that Pennsylvanians you're tired of their tired of, of one person making these decisions and particularly Tom Wolfe, who again thinks he is smarter. Then the people that he works for and I think you forgot that. I think you forgot who works for him. Congressman Fred Keller. He was in the Legislature for a long time. So he knows quite a bit about the events in Harrisburg, too. But let me ask you about sort of an interesting maybe kind of unknown issued to a lot of us who don't follow racing. I'm reading this headline that you're backing a bill to protect Pennsylvania Motor sports. I'm not really familiar with the issue. Can you bring me up to speed? It's when you're looking at motor sports and particularly racing, and we have a lot of great great entertainment. Family entertainment feels gross Speedway. Um Clinton County Speedway. Beaver Springs, Dragway Port Royal, So we got a lot of run of Lot of entertainment, and that's exactly a lot of local revenue into those municipalities. But would that include, like the Pocono Speedway? Yeah, because what racecourses recourse do is is where will people raised you is they might modify the engines for for performance and you know so on and the wants to make that illegal that to modify those engines. Uh, yes, they want do that. It's called the rpm and it is protecting motor sports is really what it's doing on duh we want there's a lot of people that love the sport of racing. And we should have a government saying you can't do that. Out of curiosity. I'm not. I'm not a race fan, so I don't really know. But I know people who love it. It's it's a passion that's deep with the advent of the electric car. Well, you know, I wonder if the left sees a day when there will be no more motor sports as we traditionally know them or if there will be racist. They'll all be electric and everything will be humming quietly. Doesn't have the experience the noise. That is a lot of this one. I did tell you what I have friends that a sprint car drivers. In fact, my campaign advertises on a streetcar paella places down in Selinsgrove and I love going to the races. You you're here in the pitch. You see the work of the people do you know it's getting the car's ready and I mean, there is so much calculation in what they're doing. There's a lot of talk about a new industry that takes a lot of Thought in math and different stuff. I mean, they measure the size of that gun Sprint course. The one tires Larger diameter than the inside tire because when they're going around the curves, it helps for steering going around the race track and it's pretty cool. I mean, you're measuring this stuff and in figuring things out, it's really a fascinating sport. And I have a lot of friends in streams, sport. I mean, they have you on the racetrack in you see families, they're enjoying themselves. You see the community they're enjoying themselves and I you know, T o do something to try and eliminate One whole piece of entertainment is nothing wrong. That's going to be interesting. Issue I did get does. It doesn't have support in Congress. I assume the Democrats would would kill in the effort. You're trying to make it to be helpful in motor sports right now, Right? Well, I think that they probably, uh There is support. I mean, we've we've got. You know, there's this co sponsors on the bill, and I don't think I'm a co sponsor. It's not. I'm not the original sponsor. But, you know, look looking at the bill. No, that's there's people like I could pull it up and see everybody that's on it. But we've got a good cross section of people from different parts of the country. Congressman Fred Keller, Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional district. Always a pleasure. Thanks for spending some Friday morning with US Oh, I appreciate Chris. And one thing I want people to remember is continued. T stand up for what's right. Pennsylvania is the birthplace of America.

If you really want to know what's going on in the Middle East during Jimmy Carter's administration is the one good thing he did, and I know I've mentioned this. But it but it bears repeating. Jimmy Carter. Got on Anwar Sadat of Egypt and Menachem Bagan of Did you hear? I said, That's any mom Bagan when I used to listen to public radio.

There's a famous picture of them on the White House lawn there, shaking hands and Jimmy Carter has his hand on top of there, shaking. Is a great moment. But you know what? Anwar Sadat had signed his death warrant at that point, because Islamic extremists in his country Assassinated him. He was doing a review of a military parade. And, um armed military members in the parade jumped out and shot him and others on the reviewing stand opened fire on them, killing them. Look it up. This is this is the interesting part. The individuals who did that who masterminded it were locked up. They were the people who worked with Osama bin Laden to create Al Qaeda. The number two Al Qaeda guy. What's his name? Dr. I can't think of his name. I believe he's still at large. He was one of the people who coordinated this. What did they do? Sadat signed the peace deal. And they killed him. They assassinated him now you know the Israelis and the Egyptians have been at war. Killed him. So Yes. What? There's ah! There's the Palestinian who looks like Ringo Starr. Yeah, And he's with Um Clinton and they've got the, uh, the peace deal. And yes, there are a fact was probably thinking about what happened to Anwar Sadat, and he said, I'm not signing this. I'm not getting bumped off. No way. He eventually died of natural causes. Although in the Arab world this is conspiracy theory that the Israelis poisoned him. I don't believe it. As they found some They claim they found some radioactive isotope in his urine from a pair of his underwear that he was wearing when he died. That's a long story. It's a distraction. They're not going to sign a peace deal. As long as the terrorists are in charge, and the terrorists don't want Israel to exist. Speaking of terrorists.

"The I heart radio app. Uh, and, uh, tomorrow's Christmas and I'm going through the year because I'm not back until the first Monday in January. So for me today is the last day of the year. Certainly in terms of Sitting behind the microphone here, one of the big stories that we are covering the presidential pardons. The president now is up to 27 pardons, Friends supporters. No surprise. We're expecting that and the pardons are going to come flying like crazy and the tremendous controversy with a horrible human being. He is. Well, you know, this is not only not a surprise. We're expecting it, but also he's not alone. This is what presidents do. Especially their last days. And if you go back in history, I mean, this is just as relatively little small potatoes compared to the pardons that we have had even up to recent days. So let me give you a little handle History of pardons. 18 58. There was a little pardon, James Buchanan issued a blanket pardon for over Mormons in the country. And the deal. Woz. Um they accepted US authority over Utah. They decided to become a state and in Return. Uh, the Mormons who actually had fought the United States and therefore we're guilty of treason. Insurrections edition, etcetera done. Mormons. Urine give a polygamy except the United States and you are hereby forgiven. 18 65 after the Civil War. Johnson president Andrew Johnson, who of course, followed Abraham Lincoln, Pardon all the Confederate soldiers. Lincoln would have done the same clearly, but that's a big pardon. Because these Confederate soldiers were had were treasonous. They had fought against the United State, take up arms against the country and see what happens to you. It's it's treason. Now. Moving into the modern era. And this is the one that we've lived through. For those of us that were there during Clinton years and Richard Nixon years I was really young at that time, obviously. Uh, Clinton, Pardon Patty Hearst and the weatherman, the weatherman outright terrorists. Domestic terrorists. Lincoln Clinton pardons them and then Patty Hearst, which was a real weird one, because she was the one that was the Simeon Lee Symbian Liberation RB Symbionese Liberation Army, and she was William Randolph Hearst, granddaughter. And it was anyway she became a terrorist. Um Clinton pardons his half brother. So for those of you that are upset about Donald Trump pardoning Jared Kushner's dad. Even though it was long long ago he had gone to prison for it. On has now full pardon. Clinton pardons his half brother, Roger Clinton, who was convicted of cocaine trafficking and for no other reason that his last name was Clinton. So hey, don't nail Donald Trump any more than you would have nailed any other president Obama right. Freeze Chelsea manning the wiki least source. What the United States at huge risk. Literally put the United States security at risk and Obama pardons him. Hey, actually computes the 35 year prison sentence as being Oh, That's way too much. The guy was a traitor. So also, Manning is now a transgender. And what can I tell you? I don't know if that was part of it. Probably not. Richard Nixon freed Lieutenant William Calley. Remember my lay where you had the 1968 massacre of Villagers. And the massacre. Woz in fact, done by US soldiers. Callie was the on Lee. One convicted In the entire war of the war crimes that happen in Vietnam, and there were plenty of them. But he's the one that was a scapegoat, even though he was clearly in charge, so there were plenty of other at fault. Hey, received broad public sympathy and Nixon free him. All right, so You know, that was controversial. You had Clinton in 1999 and 2017. Well, the FAA Ellen terrorists, 1999. Offered prison computations assist 16 members of a Puerto Rican and terrorist group 100 bombs. In the seventies and eighties, and he gave them pardons. Ford pardons Richard Nixon in 1974 remember being so upset about that, because Why is Nixon above the law? Any one of us who obstructed justice like this. Why would have received a prison sentence? And the whole concept of Watergate was nobody is above the law except the president. Including the president. And, uh, Gerald Ford pardons him. Well, it turned out probably to be a good move. The country needed to heal and move forward. Incidentally, that costs Gerald Ford his election Clinton, let's go back to Clinton. He was gonna tell you. Clinton's pardons were kind of bizarre. Here was the one that's probably most controversial, and I think the most disgusting he pardons Marc Rich. This is a billionaire who stole hundreds of millions of dollars on and all kinds of tax evasion, so he runs His wife is pitching Bill Clinton to pardon him so rich could come back to United States of Freeman. He and his wife had given millions of dollars to Democratic campaigns.

So as upset as you may be on, I'm right there in terms of the pardons that are flying out of the White House. Hey, there's plenty more That happened recently. And this is where presidents I think sort of lose it in the last few minutes. Add to throw away. I'm out of office anyway. Coming up. Handle on.

"You're listening to Chicago's afternoon news here on 7 20. W G, and I was telling you about this story that I was reading in the from the Center for Illinois Politics. A contributing editor is Jeremy Gantz and he's wrote The story called Behind Illinois's Blue Facade. Growing Partisan Polarization. Jamie are Jeremy. Welcome to W. G. N Thanks for having me. Yeah, I love this story. I mean, I've been I've been here since 1984. I was just talking about the results from Don Clark nets and Jim Edgar with the crew here a little bit earlier. Um, but I have to tell you, I mean, I'm surprised by what I read. It's sort of like the boiling frog. Maybe because It's been happening slowly. And you know, I mean, I can go back to the days when Republican presidential candidates could contend and win when there were Republican candidates who could contend and win and cook County. Not very many of them. And when they were down state Democrats, but it looks as if that's all gone. Yeah, And what I want to do with this piece was really kind of look back over the last decade and try toe suss out trends that maybe you're a little behind the big headline numbers. I mean, Hey, Illinois has this clear reputation of the blue state and for good reason that the last three presidential elections going back to 2012 or one by a Democrat by 17 points, But if you look behind that Number. You don't actually see some real ships going on geographically, you know, across the state from basically The north northern half with Cook County in the collar collar town. He's going bluer, deeper shade of blue and then the southern half of the state getting redder and redder and I was really struck by out. How it was seems like that. Wait in the deep south part of the state south of Champagne. Toni, it's It's almost an accelerating trend since 2012 If you look at it at a county like Gallatin, you know they went 50% for Mitt Romney in 2012. Now Trump just won that county with 76%. Yeah, and I was talking earlier with the crowd about the fact that that's the only County that Jim Edgar lost 1994 which was reviewing it a surprise to me, I just would have assumed that next was able to win Cook County, but she did not. Um and so, but, you know, that would have been these. This talk of Seceding from the state or splitting the state up. You know what? I kind of laugh at that stuff because it's kind of ridiculous or silly. It's not serious, but when you when you look at these Numbers and how truly divided the state is. It's a little more logical than I was giving it credit for. Yeah, It's really striking the geographical divide, and I just didn't realize how. How dramatic it is. Um, it seems like you know, I think in that way. What? We're seeing them on the way over. These last couple of cycles really mirrors What Seems to be happening with the GOP nationally that it's becoming more of a of a rural party. You know, it used to have more suburban support, at least among some voters, and that that seems to be Declining and that trend. I think it's important to note three dates. Trump, you know, I guess. There was a part of me that maybe thought, Well, you you wouldn't see the continued trend of these looks more Southerner like County's quite so dramatically in the red column, but you know 2016 verses 2020 20, but it seems to be a priest steady. At least in terms of the presidential results. There used to be that southern Illinois. I've lost the congressman's name. Now. I remember talking to him so many times he ran against George Ryan for governor. Um, shoot Kong Democratic Congressman Far southern Illinois. I'll come up with it. Pollard know Glenn Poshard, right? Glenn Poshard and but he represented far Southern Illinois. He was a Democrat. I mean, he was so far south. He told me he would fly. Out of Memphis when he had to go to Washington. But again, a Democratic representative, that's just not gonna happen today. Right, And I think that speaks to you know, I think wait out in some of the Southern counties you had you had any more union households back when there's more mind going on. Obviously, that's still in terms of the Union of this is still part of the democratic coalition. But, um with they think that shift, um economic shifts going on down there? Um, people, and I think we've had started even during sort of the Reagan Democrat aura That seems to be really picking up people who maybe would have been in the Democratic Party 30 years ago. 35 years of power. You seem to be training really more toward becoming loyal GOP voters. So you think that's where the flip started with Reagan in 1980? Well, I think I think in terms of the national the trends of the presidential politics Yeah. I mean, I think that Reagan was pretty good at picking off the union households and Uh, you know, frankly, Trump has has been able to do that to people. That kind of disaffected from the with the status quo. And maybe the Democratic Party. Uh and, uh, yeah, I think that you know, over the same period time you've just seen the labor movement shrank. So, uh, people who are maybe you're not doing so well, economically are you know, ending up more likely to vote for the GOP? It's what Biden said before the 2016 convention, he said, You know, the Democrats Aren't speaking to the regular people these days of the people who are out of work or the people who, you know, have machine jobs and things like that. So you said that Northern Illinois tends to be blue, but it's really more the Northeast quarter of the state right at best, what's happening in the northwest quarter of the state? Yeah, that was finished. Rubio, who? I guess sometimes with us Well, and I'm still kind of crossing through this. But basically, you know, in 2012, which is when Barack Obama was re elected, he won most of the counties in northwest Illinois. So basically the all the counties come around. Was where the quad cities are stretching up to the Wisconsin Porter can, um, over the last two cycles in 2016 and 2020. Um Clinton and brighten really only 11 of those counties and, um, the county that actually contains the quad city there. Um so I'm not sure it seems like that probably had to do with the kind of Obama hometown advantage. Looks that annoying except, um, but I feel like I also totally had to do with the sort of increasingly in a rural urban divide the party. So, um I'm sorry. Don't mean to interrupt your me Yeah, I feel okay s.
