Why Does Mark Milley Have More Medals Than Dwight D. Eisenhower?
"Mark milley who is a traitor to the united states and should be court-martialed but he won't be he will be promoted. Given book deals treated very seriously look at how many medals he has. When i play this on the livestream on rumbled dot com. Dwight eisenhower the greatest. One of the greatest generals in american history had like two medals in one world war two alongside the sacrifice the blood and and the commitment of so many heroes. What does mark milley ever done as useful overseeing the destruction of the greatest military in the history of the planet play cut thirty-three. It is clear it is obvious. The worn afghantistan did not end the terms. We wanted with the taliban now in power in kabul and we must remember that the taliban was and remains a terrorist organization and they still have not broken ties with al qaeda. I have no illusions who we are dealing with. It remains to be seen whether or not the taliban can consolidate power or if the country were further fracture into civil war. So why did you give them weapons. Then so why did you give them. Blackhawk helicopters mark. Milley mind. You give them rifles. Why did you give them grenades. Why did you give them eighty five billion dollars of our best weapons if they're an enemy and make no mistake. I know who they are. Why did you work with the taliban toback channel to try to all of a sudden give up bomber base
Joe Biden Is America's Greatest National Security Threat
"It has been twenty years yesterday. The anniversary of nine eleven which is a moment's a day in history that i think changed all of our lives instead assan. Maybe even a different trajectory in life and it was difficult to look back on twenty years and certainly it made it even more difficult with the way that we were led out of afghanistan over the last month by the biden administration. Our first question is for mark levin and sad. We'd like you dr. Sebastian gorka to be our one responder mark. What is our greatest national security threat today. joe biden. i'm not cleaning. I am not kidding. The people he is surrounded himself with a disaster. He's got a secretary of defense that helped create the isis caliphate. He's got a sector stay. Who comes out of the ivy league. Schools really doesn't know a damn thing same with his national security adviser so when you look among those people it's absolutely a disaster. The idea that we've american citizens in enemy territory the idea that we would leave afghan patriots. Who fought with us in enemy territory. The idea that twenty years after nine eleven the taliban will be stronger and bigger control the entire country about ghanistan with the backing of al-qaeda and china and russia iran sees this north korea sees is all of our enemies see this we are in dire dire
Lindsey Graham Defends Horseback Border Patrol Agents, Calls for 'Incompetent' Mayorkas to Resign
"You know they put. They put fences around capital but the borders wide open to the tune of two million criminal immigrants to this invasion thus far and as democrats report from the border but twenty five percent of them have the wuhan and they're not tested and they're just laughing at you knuckleheads putting on your man. Who put your mask ron. I'm going to the supermarket really a. Why don't you pretend the supermarkets the emmys or barack hussein's party or the border senator. Lindsey graham was talking with show favourite martha mccallum yesterday about the disasters of this administration. Play that clip. Give me real quick quick. So all i can say is what biden has done is he surrendered the border to drug cartels cody's and human smugglers. He surrendered afghanistan to terrace. The taliban and al qaeda in a major terrorist attack is gonna come our way because between the combination of allowing afghanistan to fall back into terrorist hands and have a completely open and broken border here in the united states is just a matter of time that the terrorists come through that border to kill a bunch of us. And here's what. I want to say to the american people. The man on horseback is there to protect your family. The people rushing our border have put us all under siege. And i think the most inhumane things going on right now in america is that the men and women of the border patrol of been completely abandoned. Them god's scapegoat and treated like dirt by elected officials in the democratic party and this administration. So i'm not unhappy. I am pissed secretary. Marcus needs to resign. He's completely incompetent. The border is not closed. It has been surrendered. A man senator. Lindsey graham and bali needs if if if the democrats have the lord and the constitution and the love of america may orcas would be out. He's not incompetent. He's doing what he's being ordered to do. It's you got gotta look up the chain. The handful of people controlling those strings on biden's ira- ira- iraq. You could practically his job moving. They need a little more. Wd forty that jaw just like a puppet. Now
The Taliban Must Deal With These Leaders to Avoid Civil War
"Jona goldberg wrote a great book. A couple years ago we talked about the big man theory. In every failed state big man emerges usually the guy with the most guns skinny teenagers and maybe out of that state grows. Do you expect a civil war in afghanistan admiral after a period of time when these tribes fall back to what these tribes have always done which fight each other when they don't fight the west certainly. That's the long in unfortunate history of afghanistan. The taliban are still you know two three weeks into this thing playing their version of taliban two point oh. I saw some shots yesterday of connie the minister of the interior. Who's who has between five and ten million dollar bounty on his head depending on who you talk to a pure terrorist. A dark figure yet. He's walking around kabul effectively handing out candy in the streets. He's being kind and charming and smiling. That's kind of the face of the taliban at the moment if they keep that up. I think they've got a shot at avoiding of major breakdown if they revert to their old practices. It's civil war right around the corner. Because the northern alliance's that big trips to the north. They don't want to be ruled by the pashtoons in the south Unfortunately i would suspect. That is the future of afghanistan. we ought to care for the reasons we just talked about you. Which are that leads to ungoverned spaces that leads to the rise of al qaeda that provides safehaven to slavic state That's what we need to avoid being surprised on all the more reason that we maintain an intelligence capability in afghanistan. As difficult as. that's going to be.
According to the Taliban, They Defeated the United States
"Talk about afghanistan. God fa- sekine piece of real estate. it's never functioned. As a modern westphalian nation ever even under the monarchy the nation. That was home to bin laden and his al-qaeda training camps now twenty years after september eleventh is again under the control of our friends let of corrupt politicians that want to play nice with the west like qatar cy but under the control of people who want to kill you yes. The taliban quote unquote the students. The tally ban the students of islam fundamentalists. They don't hate isis. The same breed is. I says isis may want to be in control but they're all fundamentalists jihadis along with al qaeda. Now they have eighty three billion dollars worth of equipment and training that you pay for. And how are they sending that across the muslim world arab and non-arab. We defeated america. We didn't just defeat the ruthless murderous soviet union with its helicopter gunships and landmines shaped like toys to main children. We defeated the greatest station. I'm seth that's how they're selling it than jihadis are flooding back into this
How Does Al Qaeda Compare to Other Terrorist Organizations?
"Don't have time to share the knowledge. You've accumulated in over a decade tracking this stuff. But i i want to be a value to those that. Have an interest especially given the decision in In kabul with regards to surrendering afghanistan. Talk to us. Give it a little bit of clarity on the biggest moving parts of the threat environment. Explain to us the difference. The relationship and the competing interests of al-qaeda. So where's al qaeda to day. And how it compares with isis and this isis k. And then where does the taliban fit in. Well it will leave. The shia will leave new shrine and iran for a second told us about the three big pieces of of of suny terrorism today. Yeah absolutely. I'm gonna just take a real quick second to take a broad look at this. When president biden said the threat has basically metastasized and spread to other areas. He's absolutely greg. This is the failure of our efforts. Post nine eleven. Because pre-nine eleven the taliban the taliban hosted al qaeda and that was the main base for al-qaeda that's where they operated openly and ran training camps and whatnot and the operated cellular level. Now it's spread out. And there's these insurgencies are the lifeblood of the jihad. They use this the safe haven that exist pre-nine eleven in afghanistan afghanistan today to take the fight to to they want to establish their local emirates. Build a caliph it and then take the fight to watch. That's all part of their strategy today. Today that's threat has metastasized across the globe. But that is the reason to surrender afghanistan and in afghanistan today now the taliban greens the country l. Qaeda is it's primarily al-qaeda played a major role in the taliban offensive. It's not advertised. But i i have to go into detail and spend do conversation on how al qaeda played a major role in this offensive behind the scenes. You'll just have to take my so so so. This is very important that al qaeda was was an important part of the taliban recapturing afghanistan. That's what you're saying. Well yeah absolutely. The misconception about al qaeda and even the islamic state is that there are solely focused on conducting attacks here in the united states. That's a tactic. that's something they hope to do. Something they wanna do to to break our will punish us. But how did they achieve that. At that by gathering recruits training because remember the real goes established global galvin. That's what they want.
"al qaeda" Discussed on KLIF 570 AM
"Is Al Qaeda Gone? Are they still around? There's still around a little bit there, you know. For the last 10 years, the US military has assessed that there's fewer than 100 Al Qaeda fighters or sympathisers in all of Afghanistan. It any given time. So that's compared to say, 60 or 70, or 80,000 fighters for the Taliban. It's a very small presence, Uh, we really again Al Qaeda had been kicked out of Afghanistan or killed or destroyed. Not long after we went in in 2000, and one of the big worry now is with the Taliban in charge of the whole country and having controlled the entire territory. Would this allow Al Qaeda to come back in with the offer them a refuge again and This is of course is a question. Nobody knows the answer to. Why did they offer them our refuge in the beginning? Could they just not get them out? Well, I think they were friendly with them. They Qaida had Summits leaders, including bin Laden, had helped the mujahideen the holy Warriors, as we did to that their trade and helped us fight the Soviets, so the Taliban leaders were friendly with Al Qaeda. They saw them as allies in that regard. At the same time. I think it is important to point out that you know there were no Afghans involved in the 9 11 attacks. It was actually mostly Saudis in this was an Al Qaeda operation. And there's no indication that the Taliban knew about it. I don't want to separate them entirely from Al Qaeda, because certainly there's sympathetic to each other and the Taliban had offered Al Qaeda refuge and You know, there's no sign yet that they would swear them off. You know, That's the big worry. Can Al Qaeda come back? And China, of course, is going to walk right in the door in Afghanistan, aren't they? Well so far. The signs are that the Taliban is pretty friendly with China. I think they see them as a source of income source of aid, their neighbor and part of Afghanistan. But what's interesting is the Taliban doesn't seem to mind too much. China's, uh, brutal human rights record with Muslims and some of its provinces. That seems to be something that the Taliban It's sort of dismissing, and they would rather have support from some outside power. They know they're not going to get it from the United States, so they're turning to China and frankly, they're going to turn to Russia to what did the Soviet Union at the time want within Afghanistan? Why they even go in there? They wanted to install the Communist government, one that would essentially they could control as a puppet, and they were concerned that Afghanistan was wiggling loose from its sphere of influence, so to speak, so they went in in 1975. After Cuda try and install their own strong men in Afghanistan I had written rubbed, read a poem by Roger Kipling after we had evacuated Afghanistan, and it was that short little poem about a British soldier. Lying on the fields of Afghanistan and in in the poem, and I'm paraphrasing it. Kipling rights When the women come to tear out your body parts, roll to your rifle and go to your God. And what about that little poem told me that every nation has tried to occupy Afghanistan, and none has been successful. That's right. I think this is something again. United States failed to learn the lessons of history, even though they were staring us right in the face that I mean the fact that we kept US troops here for 20 years. Even Afghans who were inclined to support the United States. They still would see us as occupying forces. Uh, you know, they saw this is the foreign infidels in some regards, and so You know, try as we might to get the Afghan people on our side and to support the Afghan government. There's still a tremendous amount of resentment because you know this war had been continuing for 20 years. The Afghan People suffered terribly under this now. Certainly the Taliban bears the biggest portion the blame for that. But a lot of Afghans just resented having foreign troops there for 20 years because You know, before us, Of course, the Soviets had been there. So really, they see the past 30 years as a big, long, unbroken string of foreign occupation and war And I think Understandably, they're just tired of all that on an A, B, c, D or E. What grade? Would you give George Bush for his handling of Afghanistan? Well, I'd give him an A for the first few months, then a C and then an F. In the end, I mean, he failed to stabilize the country. He won the war at first. But then he stopped paying attention and shifted his attention to Iraq and That that let the whole thing slipped through our grasp. How about Barack Obama? What would you give him? Well, not much better. I mean, he had promised. Also, like Bush that we would prevail in Afghanistan. He sent far more forces spent far more money in Afghanistan, trying to build it up. Trying to create this Afghan army and police force. But, you know, In retrospect, that was a failure to because we have nothing to show for it. Donald Trump. Same thing. I mean, he wasn't responsible as long as Bush or Obama for the war, but he also promised victory. He tried to negotiate with the Taliban to negotiate a peaceful end. But Again in the end, that didn't work, either. I mean, none of these presidents can claim that the strategies they endorsed to the American people worked in the end in any fashion. And how about Joe Biden? What would he get? Well, I'm going to be careful about handing out grades I think with mine will have to see right. I mean, he promised to leave Afghanistan so so far whether you know it was certainly a mess the way it happened, but he kept his promise. But we're going to have to wait and see what the consequences are in the coming years. With the Taliban being in charge. I think what they should have done was evacuated first before they took the troops out. That would've been the smart thing to do. But like you said, I don't think they anticipated the country collapsing overnight. They clearly didn't. Uh, that said, I think they were concerned that if they started to evacuate Afghans who had helped us during the war This would trigger a panic. So no question. It was between Iraq and a hard place if they trigger that panic. Uh then things might get bad, but because they didn't evacuate people early enough. You know, it just looked even worse. So they just didn't have a clear cut plan for what happened, Craig, what lessons have we learned? If we have learned anything about this situation? I think the biggest lesson for the documents I came for my book was Believe it or not, the mission was never really spelled out. There wasn't a clear objective or goal of what we're trying to accomplish in Afghanistan. First, there was when we thought we were going to Afghanistan to eliminate Al Qaeda. But as we discussed, George That happened within a few months. But then the mission got really blurry and mission creep set in, and it was unclear what we were trying to do there and At what point could we leave? We never really spelled out under Bush, Obama or Trump what we had to actually do in order to leave. It was all sort of vague that we were building up the Afghan government..

A religion of peace and saying these attacks had nothing to do with jihad and nothing to do with islam. That was a lie that he maintain all through his eight years in office.

"al qaeda" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"About far right extremists committing violence in America. They don't exist, but they do exist all over the world. As Isis every single day. And Al Qaeda and the other jihadists kill people Massacre people, civilians. So the conflating of a far right threat that small at this point, and it is With a massive jihadist threat. Is not, in my opinion, intellectually honest. Now I put in a call to President Bush. I know him pretty well. I hope youll come on and discuss it with me. I doubt he will. It's a shame because that needs to be discussed. Now President Obama and Clinton. They didn't make any public comments. Which I found Not strange, but on usual. How about that? Donald Trump. No, he did not go because he wouldn't be welcomed. Uh, in the New York City. Formal Formal presentation. Um, because New York City is run by radical leftists. And Bush knows he wouldn't be. Giuliani was shunned. By the Blasio administration. Giuliani's a hero. At 9 11. He was shot. So Donald Trump instead went to police agencies and fire agencies in New York City and at one of the police events..

"Now, What about Afghanistan tomorrow? Do you think that the president will make any reference to it? Or do you think he's just trying to ignore it? It seems to be is the message.

Taliban Announces Formation of New Afghan Government
"The taliban announced a new government in afghanistan. that's not likely to get a lot of support from western nations. It does not include any women or members from the last afghan government's leadership instead. This new interim government is stacked with taliban veterans who were in charge of the hardline government. Twenty years ago. Several of them are listed by the us and united nations as global terrorists. For example. the key post of interior minister was given to a man. Who's on the fbi's most wanted list. He led a network. That's blamed for many deadly attacks and kidnappings and he's believed is still holding at least one american hostage besides him. Other cabinet members used to be inmates at guantanamo detention camp and at least one of the leaders is said to have ties to the al qaeda terror group that was responsible for the attacks on nine eleven. The taliban says these appointments are temporary but they have not said how long the last who is going to take over next or if there might be elections for now. The taliban is also urging foreign diplomats embassies consulates and humanitarian organisations to come back to afghanistan all western nations left when. Us troops withdrew last month. The us and other countries also froze afghanistan's funding. That's desperately needed as much as eighty percent of the country's budget comes from the international community but global leaders in lenders say they're waiting to see how the taliban will treat the opposition women and minorities before they send money

"al qaeda" Discussed on News 96.5 WDBO
"With respect to Al Qaeda. Right now. Our intelligence community does not believe that Al Qaeda in Afghanistan represents a threat to the United States homeland, he has pointed out. That we have been able to deal with and suppress terrorist threats in other countries that do have attack capabilities against America without a permanent military presence on the ground. We intend to do the same thing when it comes to Afghanistan. Okay, So he's Yep. Yeah, why? First of all The terrain in Afghanistan is very, very difficult. It's not like Syria and Yemen, where you can do overflights and track a lot of stuff in Afghanistan. You need human sources. The reason why we haven't been hit in the homeland is because We were out there on the front line, detecting those al Qaida terrorist threats and preempting them, um and ending them before they could hurt us in the region and beyond. Uh Secondly, the guy who's running security for Kabul is Khalil Haqqani, the uncle of Sirajuddin Haqqani. He is a terrorist designated as such by our State Department, his whole economy network. They have allowed Al Qaeda to homestead on their territory. Dare we reminded by an administration that the leader of Al Qaeda Ayman al Zawahiri, is at large in Afghanistan Pakistan region but most likely in Afghanistan. Uh there are Al Qaeda fighters, and they are now going to Travel to this region, knowing that they have a welcome host and the Taliban, so we don't have the intelligence capability any longer to really detect those threats. This administration like to have near certainty before launching kinetic strikes. Good luck with that. So, lastly, I understand over the weekend it got reported to me and I think the situation been solved the CIA guys since they dissolving their bases that we didn't know much about, and I'm glad we didn't Uh, they've been left exposed and out there and there's been an unresponsive White house to help them. Did you hear anything about this? And you and I heard the situation has been solved. If so, did you hear the same thing? Well, I've heard, um more harrowing news than that that many of our Afghan partners Um, fought to the death against the Taliban. And these were guys who were fighting the Taliban alongside of keeping us safe collecting intelligence on our behalf so that we could Find fix and finish Al Qaeda threats. We had a long standing partnership with With Afghan Brave Afghan paramilitary units and Heaven knows what what, what Their faith was, But I know in some circumstances, uh, they went down fighting against the Taliban and You know that that history will be written. Frankly, there will be a lot of testimony in the Congress. Some of it will be open for our citizens to listen to, and some of it will be behind closed doors. I hope we get a lot of it because we really need to accurately to understand what went wrong here. Um, so that Maybe in the future. Another administration can pick up the pieces and once again focus on keeping our nation safe properly and just do as an American has done what you've done. What does it do to you? Knowing that life was going on this weekend, there was a huge fundraiser with the speaker of the house running in California, and then you have the majority leader of the Senate dancing at a concert. How can you do that and call yourself an American leader with what's happening in Afghanistan? I mean, this is a somber time. Um, as we approach the 20th anniversary of 9 11 And You know, I have a very dear friend of mine who was there in New York in Manhattan. Um, I was working for CIA and happened to be there at the World Trade Center and saw people jumping to their deaths. He went and served three tours in Afghanistan, including as our station chief, Um, he and I have talked a lot in the past few weeks in the past few days. Um, we're just isn't a somber time to reflect on that day 20 years ago. And also for all of us to be cognizant that look, Afghanistan is more of a clear and present danger today than it's ever been. And our citizens are less safe today than they were yesterday. And I can tell you that the CIA in U. S military and State Department focused on on our national security and keeping our people safe. But they've just been dealt a wicked hand and it's going to be extraordinarily difficult to do so. The president has just written it. Check. That's going to be hard for us to cash, frankly. And their leaders of the State Department, Anthony Blinken and Austin. They have to be fired there if they did not put down and turning their their IEDs after being told to do this. Then that means they're complicit and they should be fired. They embarrassed this country at a level I didn't think was possible. Daniel. Thanks so much.

"Are back with the author of future jihad and more recently. They're lost spring an expert on jihadi ideology on the middle east and thread groups like al qaeda isis and the taliban were lead farris Let's finish off the last thought before we jump onto the next one pakistan has always wanted. Afghanistan is it's re- echelon it's it's retreat area in a war with india. It has been friendly. The isi the military have been friendly with the taliban. Today's events in afghanistan can do nothing but heightened tensions between the two nuclear nations of pakistan and india correct. Absolutely they are already if you read a pakistani and indian media presence. That's what you see and you know. We work on on projecting into the future within weeks or months if the international community led by the united states led by this administration. Don't do anything significant to address what happened and frankly set for the first time. I don't know what to advise because mistakes are so large that i don't know how we're gonna handle but if we don't address the situation between india and pakistan we are having to something much larger and bigger than any conflict in the middle east. And let's look at the map projecting into the future. Let let let's look at what this administration has already said its priorities. Aw instead of finding jihadist instead of saying china is the issue that we have a very very strange man at the top of the department of defense. His name is lloyd austin and this is what he said. His priorities are as the new secretary of defense into real ranks of racist and extremist and to create a climate where everyone fit and willing as the opportunity to serve this country with dignity. The job of the department of defense is to keep america safe from our enemies. But we can't do that if some of those enemies lie within our own ranks so looking for enemies and the us military as opposed to enemies abroad Doesn't that make the Theo theo kratz in islamabad intact. Crown and now in kabul smile dr faddis. Oh a fairly long white smile professor. You and i know more than many around us. Because you talk to the military for many years and i did for twenty years. We know very well that there is no so-called deep racism embedded in. Us armed forces. I mean the american forces are the ones who defeated. fascism Landed in normandy and when through and of course the italian fascist japanese militaristic This this accusation to The forces of the united states that they are harboring Racist and other extremist should have been done doing the obama years against jihadist. I guess those who try to penetrate major hasan's of this world those who penetrate our our forces in our basis. So i am deeply disturbed by the fact that the energy that we should have to uproot radical ideologies like jihadism has been transformed into into a image that really doesn't exist in reality and that is very very very bad for us The book is future jihad.

"al qaeda" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"We are back with the author of future jihad former foreign policy and national security advisor to candidate donald trump. He is professor lead. Fattest follow him on twitter at w. a. l. i. d. p. h. a. r. e. s. He is an expert for all things when it comes to global jihad and i wanna talk about this threat specifically and the consequences of the events. We are witnessing today in afghanistan. Professor is i was in afghanistan in two thousand six. I've spent twenty years plus Looking at the ideology of the fundamentalist like isis like al qaeda like al newsra And and one thing that struck me way back when with regards to the taliban to the afghans jihadists is that their ideology. Various reasons was very provincial. They said that we we've created a caliphate but then caliphate was a small part of afghanistan. And they didn't have any ambitions or rather they didn't have any capabilities to protect project that ideology to a broader geog geography they. They weren't about taking over a multiple countries and they didn't have the capacity to do so that could have all changed in the last few years. Couldn't it if you look at the capacities. They have now captured. This could be a far far more ambitious taliban than we have ever seen. You are strategically right. The new talk ban. we are going to be. Witnessing are the superpower bat or she had this on steroid they have now the experiences not just al-qaeda everywhere around the world they will obtain the experience of daish isis. They of course aren't taking advantage of the teachings of the muslim brotherhood. Remember they Have been successful and the discussions in qatar even with with with our people Through the support of the brotherhood but more importantly as also on tv life. The tiny band have seized a lot of american made weapons. You have tony band humvee style. You have tony band with m16's but more important. You have tommy ban. Who had been able and we'll be able to learn Our military tactics and secrets from units from the afghan army surrendered to them. So what you are saying. Professor is absolutely true terrifying. But let me go one inch beyond that. Those taliban are not going to abide by any agreement. They sign because you know jihadist ideology. You could do i. You call it. And then when you control the land when you control the power then you unveil who you really are they going to do is they're going to bring back all card neil al-qaeda they already have sections of isis that was even under your occupation. So i do project like you do that. Afghanistan is going to be the real core of the caliphate. It wasn't emirates now. They're going to call it emirates but so to be they will declare it as the launching for the caliphate. They lost syria and iraq. So let's put this all into the amazing context of everything that you've taught to us as as the expert your book future jihad is is a seminal work. We had the muslim brotherhood. That was the grandfather of it. All a founded just four years after mustapha attitude. Dissolve the first caliphate with the express mission of reestablishing a theocratic caliphate. So that was the progenitor of all martin v if the aircraft jihadi groups eventually under bin laden Al qaeda the base for the propagation of holy war against jews and crusaders which is the full name of al-qaeda. Nobody ever says that except people like yourself that became that that the the most well known the most famous deadly version of that ideology to be superseded. Eventually after obama pulled out of iraq by isis. Could it be. Could it be that now. This new emirate whatever other name it takes but the taliban emirate in afghanistan could be now the success it to both al qaeda and isis and be the new global brand of jihad professor. You named it. This is it. This is the ultimate metamorphoses branch off the jihadist ideology. And exactly as you said it started in the mid or early twenties would be iguana muslim brotherhood. They were the ones who reactivated with the collapse of the caliphate. The ottoman caliphate. So there is no more authority somewhere in the region. That was a state like the ottoman so the caliphate is the goal has been the goal will continue to be the goal. These organizations are just tools to get there and they get through stages through different countries. And yes after the gone. And after hamas and after all these mutations there was al qaeda we defeated al qaeda and now after that you had isis daish and indeed what we are witnessing right now and we'll see it in few months and i will discuss it the reestablishment of that trend towards the caliphate. They already gave it a name now. The islamic emirates of aghanistan. Why because they're going to establish a news lama cameras in every country they will be able to control and the role of pakistan. Now that the the they're friends the the fund the friends of the fundamentalists in in pakistan the sign in the military have retaken afghanistan They will be working hand in glove with this new islamic emirate. Will they not. That's my great concern and to tell you the truth. I've been spending hours now. Trying to get some inside information from pakistan because as i said earlier they are an element. Secular would be parties in pakistan but in the opposition. My concerns me. What concerns me are the taliban and the jihadists and the salafi of pakistan who have deep influence in the armed forces officials ambassadors. Always tell me no. There is an elite that controls everything. But we've heard that story before. I mean that elite could be overrun by these harris and pakistan is.

"Is the John Batchelor show. Congressman Devin Nunes, representing Fresno. And the San Joaquin valley. Twenty two California has a podcast that I pay close attention to and this because he's right in house intelligence having served as chair of house intelligence these last year. He turns to the question about Qaeda, an existential threat to the United States and his conversation with Tom Joscelyn, a senior fellow at the foundation for the defensive democracies and a colleague of both of ours. We've talked to him over the years. Congressman Devin, a very good evening to you your conversation with Tom is especially helpful for people who are coming to the story. Not having lived through the last nineteen years, and Tom is very careful to expedite where al-qaeda came from the leadership. What do you take from Tom's remarks? Do you believe the American people are keenly aware of the scale of this threat or they've been diverted by say Russia and ISIS last year is good evening Thanks, john. And Tom Joscelyn is a regular to your show as you know, and I'm a big fan of his he does a great job at the long war journal. And really, there's no better expert on Al Qaeda and their affiliates, and even ISIS and other terrorist groups anywhere around the world. But he he just a top notch guy and one of the things that that I do on my podcast is different than yours. You're you're more current events. You're doing the events of the day. I like to do things that are a little more historical. And so what I asked Tom to do is walk the basic person through that maybe has never heard anything ever about Al Qaeda, walked them through the beginnings. And let's do a whole couple shows teaching people about what Al Qaeda was how it formed what it became all the things that they did. And then of course, where they're at today. So that was all we had part one last Friday is very very well done and part two. Welby posted tomorrow, the Al Qaeda threat, your measure, the scale of it is it contain now or is it larger than ever? It really is. It's contained growing and some dangerous parts we had the obviously, you know ISIS. We're really was was came out of Al Qaeda, and so you had essentially for for lack of a better definition. You had an explosion that turned into ISIS, as you know, we've spent now the last few years cleaning that mess up kicking them out of their caliphate. The problem is is that they still simmer in places. And and they grow into a lot of other spots around the globe, including many parts of Africa sub Saharan Africa. Demogra- and also in western Africa. And so those are simmering growing. Small affiliate affiliates starting here and there, but the bottom line is, you know, these guys at at some point there will be a terrorist attack again, which is why we and our allies have to remain vigilant and tracking down this radical Islamic threat, one of the mysteries of Al Qaeda. Not just where it came from because it had its origins with a franchise idea that bin Laden a well educated and extremely plush life in Saudi Arabia had back in Afghanistan when the Soviets were the invaders and the US through the was aiding the resistance, they are early resistance the mujahedeen. However, we turn to the story of Somalia much in the news because new member of congress from this Amalia delegation. That transferred to America during those years of the twentieth century, Somalia and Mogadishu remembered as a pretty good combat movie Black Hawk Down and a sad story of the Clinton administration. Your measure congressman did the did the United States and the Clinton administration recognize Al Qaeda that early after the Mogadishu tragedy. Well, you're you're giving away from what was on a podcast last week, John. And I it sounds like you might have learned something as I did. Yes. I did. I did not know I was not aware of those clear connections to al-qaeda that Tom Joscelyn is tracked down and talks about on last week's podcast. It was very very interesting to me. And because we missed that signal. It reminds me that there have been a lot of myths signals over the years. Out two thousand and one is a notable Al Qaeda hit us, and we knew that there was going to be an attack. That's just a note would be in New York City in Washington. So what I take from Tom's recitation is that Al Qaeda is never going to be where we're looking for it. And there will be signals, but it's in the nature of the US government. I guess that we miss we miss signals, and you only have to miss one for for catastrophe. That's right. Which is why we have to remain vigilant. And and where they're they're all these pockets, we have to use our counter terrorism capabilities that we have built up over the last twenty years that are actually are very very good very capable. I just have to make sure that we use them against terrorist radical Islamic terrorists in any other terrorist versus turning them onto political camping Afghanistan. Afghanistan was a staging of bin Laden moved there after small after Somalia at not after Somalia after he was kicked out of Sudan. He moved there and Afghanistan now is a winding down phase. We're told their various words used by the Trump administration following the Obama administration following the Bush administration. We're always winding down in Afghanistan. But it's Tom Joscelyn and his colleagues, Bill Roggio has opinion and their colleagues that al-qaeda remains a potent threat, and is based either in Pakistan or AFC. Ghanistan and Devon I don't think that Tom or Bill or any of them have a solution for this other than vigilance. Yeah. That that's the challenge. Right. So I I don't believe that the Trump administration is is moving in the right direction. Here. I do not believe that we should be working with the Taliban at all. But you know, look, I tried it Bush tried it. So this is not just this is dot Trump's fault. It just just looked up the bottom line is there's no solution. What we've done there for the last eighteen years is not is not working something new needs to be tried. You know, I would prefer them to try something else other than negotiating with the Taliban. But now they're going back through the, you know, the so-called experts handbook that existed at the State Department and with the our intelligence agencies and they're going through the same chapter again. And they're going to try it again, my vice to has been to the White House to just skip that chapter and go and try something new that hasn't been tried yet. Because this is this has been tried, and and it will not work at the close of part one of your conversation with Tom Joscelyn. You mentioned that Tom's tweets he uses Twitter that long war journal, which is where Tom and Bill. Joe and others file uses tweets. But that Tom Joscelyn's tweets never contained any content, and it's puzzling to Tom and to you what what does that mean? Devon. Well, it's this has been going on for a couple of years where Tom Joscelyn who's not political at all. He doesn't talk about Republicans or Democrats yet, he talks about Al Qaeda at radical Islam, and it's just a it's just another ridiculous example of how Tom's off lead. Who is a it was an expert on counterterrorism is trying to get out. Good information. But you know, his thoughts and at his historical background doesn't jive with what some algorithm that was created by left-winger subway or within the Twitter sphere working for Twitter working for the Twitter police and they've been policing his tweets for two years. Tommy, positive, Devon. It's a total puzzle. It wasn't until you brought it up to Tom that it occurred to me I've been looking at that for two years and not ask why? Why why why would you? Why would anybody want to censor? Tom Joscelyn who's doing their hard work of analyzing what the US is challenged with in Afghanistan, and Pakistan, and Sudan and Syria. That's what he does. It's it's it's totally ridiculous. And it's the admit it's a great argument for what I'm sure many of your listeners are aware of that. I'm taking a Twitter to court for this for censorship. Yeah. We give Twitter and Facebook, and these other social media companies think a lot of people don't realize they get special deals. They're not treated like your company, John that you worked for Cumulus. And they're not treated like, Fox News. And and the major newspapers they had a special. Special deal where they're supposedly treated as a public square. And in fact, they're not they're censoring conservatives, they're censoring people like Tom Joscelyn because he writes about things at the left doesn't want out there. So they are clearly in bed with the laugh. Whoever is drawing up their algorithms that are running the Twitter police, they're they're they're a danger to our society because they're controlling what content people can receive just imagine over the last two years had Tom Joscelyn and Bill Roggio and others. If Americans would have been able to read their information, but unfortunately, they're censored, and instead we get garbage that we are like we can't say the term radical Islamic terrorists.

His sentencing was postponed until the government could assess the quality of his cooperation confined to prison, Venus spent eight years leading more than one hundred times with prosecutors, and the FBI Venus changed the way we thought about how al-qaeda recruits and who al-qaeda recruits, Andrew McCabe was the head of FBI counterterrorism and oversaw the Venus case. This was before McCain became better known for opening to investigations of President Trump held valuable was by Venus to the FBI incredibly valuable through his testimony through his debriefings identifying people teaching us how he had walked this pathway from Long Island, New York into Al Qaeda. You didn't know that stuff before learning about his experience? Completely broke the mold from the way that we thought business was happening prior to Venus the idea that any American ca just head to Pakistan, go seek out al-qaeda and affiliate with that group. But something we thought couldn't be done. He was a game changer for the FBI in terms of Al Qaeda. I would say so yes information as stopped more attacks than you can even conceive of Steve's e a defense lawyer with a top security clearance. He's represented several terrorism suspects, including Brian Venus. I have reviewed both classified and unclassified information, and the government's submissions to the court make it unequivocally clear that his information stopped attacks.

Did Tom what's going on? What I do on your bones around. Yes, sir. Your man there. Do the drilling for a lot of these is around here. And we're under a pretty strict. Deadline to shoot before three or four o'clock every day. Yeah. Unless, you know happening before then well, plus rock quarries always get a bad rap because rock quarries you're generally out in the middle of nowhere. And then somebody builds a housing development next to him and then people in the housing development Compal. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. The hand over their role there if if the air wasn't just right color. Couple four me talking about this called him. Birch in the sound will bounce off cold air fast. And it causes a lot of grief for them guys over there off thoroughly wrote. In your opinion, sir with your experience would and abandoned rock quarry be a good place to house the secret jihadi training facility. No because they get down into the damn thing. They'd be trapped. And you know, you can pick them off one by one. Good point. Yeah. But then you wouldn't be able to see them really easy. So they're mostly flooded. So good place to die for people that. Okay. Well, maybe we should encourage it then. Absolutely. Okay. All right. Very good. So Tom says get Al Qaeda and the whole and shovel right on top of them. I'm good with that, Michael. Yes. Inflatable green waving men invading living invade sure they protect. But you never know. Hey, I was gonna happen. Well, that's true. They don't really have the ability to move other than upward. You know what I'm saying? I hear you. I've never seen one chasing anybody. I've seen it people. They're taunting. Jumped at the same time. That's good point. Okay. All right. Well, we'll keep it in theory bucket. Okay. Good. Good. All right Ross. You've heard a lot of theories anything stand out to you. As a maybe it could be the VC digging tunnels underneath North Carolina. So it's been the long in the long con. But they came over here. That's a good point. Yeah. Finish the fight. I'll that goes in the bucket as well. That up by the way, I was just reviewing good point reviewing your root cellar here. And right now, it appears to not only traverse underneath the gold depository. But it then veers under the diamond exchange. No. Uh-huh. That's. It's a really weird. Most of those things are square or rectangular mind your own business. Yours is very tunneling. Just saying, yes. Tammy what's up. Good morning. I'm calling from Virginia..
"al qaeda" Discussed on Today, Explained
"Right. Like, we're kind of sketching out like the first part adrift. Yes. Basically, the Taliban has agreed to this thing that we have been asking them forever. Which is to promise that they won't let groups like al-qaeda an ISIS operate from their territory safely. Right. So that's the whole reason we invaded Afghanistan. Right. Because they let Al Qaeda just like party in their territory plan attacks against us. They haven't wanted to do that for really long time. Some senior leaders have because they're like, yeah. Supporting al-qaeda and letting them hang out here pretty much. The worst thing we ever did. Strategically because you know, that brought down the might of US military on them when they did that. But some of the more like rank and file fighters, and the Taliban are probably a lot more sympathetic to some of those groups, and so there's been like kind of a rift within the leadership like well. We don't wanna totally agree to that with the US, but I guess the Taliban basically sees like that they can probably bring their fighters along at this point. That's like the basic framework right now is their chance that there's sort of a nudge, nudge, wink, wink, situation going on where it's like, let's just say, we'll police ISIS, whatever it is get the US out of here. And then we get to do whatever we want again. Yeah. So that's like a big question. Mark, right. How do you check that? Right. And what do you do if they go back on their word you just like reinvade Afghanistan? This isn't like nuclear inspections where you can send in like an international agency to verify nuclear storage facilities. Like, there's a lot of questions still to be worked out. So whether or not the United. Dates can guarantee anything the two things. They're they're talking about are the Taliban policing terrorism and the US Lieven. Yeah. But there are other things too that they haven't agreed to yet. Right. So the US also wants the Taliban to sit down face to face with the Afghan government in which so far the Taliban has flat refused to do ever. Because they don't recognize the legitimacy of that government. The Americans also want the Taliban to agree to a ceasefire. Could you guys maybe just stopped shooting and bombing each other the Taliban has so far refused to do that as well. Taliban officials have basically told reporters and diplomats look one of the reasons is if we let all of our fighters, go home and tell them to lay down arms stop fighting for a while we're worried that maybe if we have to start fighting again like they won't rarely we might lose. Attrition. People are gonna go back, home and get jobs. Right. But there seems to be a little bit of movement even. On those things. with all three of these major parties hoping to get a deal is it just super likely one happens. I mean, it's not super likely at all. It's definitely looking positive, right? Like, I'm a really big cynic when it comes to the conflict in Afghanistan ending. But this is really the closest we've gotten and because like you said all three sides actually have incentives to get this done the foundations or there that it could potentially turn out to be the actual Peacedale. Could potentially end the worn Afghantistan. Jen Williams is a foreign editor at thoughts. Coming up today. Explained a peace deal might bring some peace of mind to the United States but not necessarily Afghanistan.

Right. You can make the case in line to the American public about the Iran deal and then put those two together. And then put those two together what nation is a bigger sponsor of international terrorism than Iran, and the reason that you don't and the reason the FBI doesn't do that as we explained earlier, and the reason there wasn't a call for it for the president for Obama was because the president himself gets to decide what is national security, and what is best for the United States.
