Biden To Allow Some Separated Migrant Families To Reunite
"A new bite administration policy to allow Children who remain in the U. S s custody after being separated from their parents of the border to reunite with their parents in the United States or in their country of origin. Suzanne Potter reports. Under President Donald Trump. Parents were deported without their Children and hundreds of kids remain in U. S care. Debra Weinstein, with the coalition on Human needs, says the separations harmed Children and amounted to a shocking moral failure. What the Trump administration did enforcing Children and families apart was unspeakably cool, and it was contrary to our moral code into the rule of law. The Biden administration is taking unnecessary and inhumane step. Weinstein says the government should consider restitution and look at giving the family's a pathway to citizenship. It is unclear if families that already have been reunited abroad will be allowed to come to the US while they pursue their claims of asylum.

U.S. says Saudi crown prince approved Khashoggi killing, imposes visa restrictions on 76 Saudis
"It was just about two pages long but those pages carried the weight of the. Us government will not proven a summary of findings issued by us intelligence agency state that saudi arabia's crown prince approved two thousand eighteen killing of jamal. Khashoggi it's been long suspected that prince mohammed bin salman defacto leader ordered the murder but the release of the summary finding sends a clear signal. That president biden's taking tougher stand against the kingdom than his predecessor. Npr's jackie northam has been following developments and joins us. Jackie thanks so much for being with us morning. Scott hi please give us an overview of the main findings right well just to be clear. There's no smoking gun but you know. There's a lot of circumstantial evidence in this two page report. And let me just read you a line from it. If i could quote the crown prince has had absolute control of the kingdom security and intelligence organizations making it highly unlikely that saudi officials would have carried out an operation of this nature without the crown prince's authorization unquote and scott. It goes on to say that members of his close inner circle were involved. In the killing and dismemberment of kashogi and the crown prince has supported the use of violent methods to silence dissidents abroad. And you compare what's in this report to what president trump said when asked about whether the crown prince had any knowledge of the killing and he downplayed it saying maybe he did. Maybe he didn't and One of the things to keep in mind. You know this report is a summary and there's a lot more evidence that the cia has about khashoggi's death that remains classified this report summary note but Does seem to say pretty bluntly that. The saudi crown prince has blood on his hands What kind of potential impact Could this happen relations between the us and saudi arabia. Which after all has been a very close ally for decades right. yeah well. it's it's definitely bound to have an impact you know. The crown prince is likely to become king of saudi arabia. And we'll be around for a very long time and it'll be interesting to see how the us will deal with him both in the short term after this report and certainly in the long term once he becomes king. We don't know how that's gonna shake out yet but as you say. Saudi arabia is a longtime ally in a really strategically important area of the world. You know in an interview with npr. Yesterday admiral hanes the director of national intelligence. Said it was just too soon to tell if the relationship has been damaged by this. Let's have a listen. It is not surprising. I suppose to see a shift in the relationship in some ways with the new administration and a new position and the number of challenging issues that we face together. But i think there will be what he's to whether the various storms that we have in front of us and one other thing. The saudi foreign ministry said on friday that the kingdom has already jailed. Those responsible for kashoggi's killing and that while it completely rejects the reports findings it called. Us saudi relationships robust and enduring. Jackie calls from From many quarters Clothing members of congress Human rights organizations calling on president biden to to punish sanction of the crown prince For his role in khashoggi's death. How likely does that seem to be. Biden's stop short of severely punishing the crown prince. But he said on. Friday evening that from now on the kingdom is going to be held responsible for human rights abuses and he said that there would be more significant changes announced on monday. He didn't indicate what those might be. But you know the administration did take some other steps yesterday. It announced something called the kashogi ban which allows the state department to impose visa restrictions on anyone acting on behalf of a foreign government Who's threatening dissidents overseas and it's already imposes kashogi ban on seventy six saudis and their families. And you know secretary of state. Anthony blinken talked about these moves by the us yesterday. Here he is. So what we've done by the actions that we've taken Is really not to rupture the relationship. But to recalibrate to be more in line with our interests and our values but apparently this travel ban doesn't include the crown prince himself and administration officials said on background yesterday that as a matter of practice. The us doesn't apply sanctions on the highest leadership of countries with which it has diplomatic relations and already there are increasing calls for tougher action against the saudi crown print

White House to release new guidelines after Khashoggi intel report
"Covert deaths, a new declassified version of the U. S Intelligence report concluding that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Solomon often referred to his NBS approved of the 2018 killing of journalists, Jamal Kashiwagi, the officials saying that the report by the office of the Director of National Intelligence, Deanna In coordination with the CIA, concluding that the crown prince approved in likely erred erred, ordered the murder of Kashiwagi, who's washing post column had criticized the crown Prince CNN, NBC and Reuters are among those news organizations reporting that the group which had assassinated and dismembered this Saudi dissident, then flew to Istanbul on private jets owned by a company previously seized by the Middle Eastern kingdoms, Controversial MBS. But at the White House today, this question to press secretary Jen Psaki said. When they Talk that the president won't hold back. Will he be following up this talk with actions are sanctions on the table. E think there are a range of actions that are on the table. But the first step is the next step. I should say it's for the president to speak with the king. We expect that to happen very soon. As you know, we've committed to the release of an unclassified report that would come out from Deanna and not from the White House on. Of course, our administration is focused on recalibrating the relationship as we've talked about in here previously, and certainly there are areas where we will express concerns on and leave open the option of accountability. There also areas where we will continue to work with Saudi Arabia. Given the threats they face in the region. Well, hold up to the phone call. Is the king avoiding your calls? I don't think that's the characterization. The president has a busy schedule. The king. Obviously, I can't speak to his schedule. I'm not his spokesperson, but we expect the call to happen very soon. I think there was an inaccurate reporting about being confirmed when it wasn't a confirmed call. Yet if you have made clear that the president's gonna be speaking with his counterpart with it came with the Crown prince. But given the Crown princess role in the future of the kingdom, and that he is expected to be implicated here, why not speak to the person I expect to be responsible? Well, I think the president's conversation will cover a range of topics with the king. There's obviously A lot to discuss with Saudi Arabian with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, And as I noted, a previously noted the conferences have been engaged with his appropriate counterparts. The president will be engaged with his appropriate counterparts, and we're engaged at many levels with leaders in Saudi Arabia. So will the conferences counterparts here, But often he's teaching him about this issue that he spoke with him last week. They did a readout. I don't think I have anything more about their call from today's White House briefing. We should Point out during a September 2019 interview with CBS is Norah O'Donnell for 60 Minutes. Piece, the Saudi Crown prince denying any knowledge of Jamal cash. Augie's death his answers through a translator. The world wants the answer to this question. How did you not know about this operation about that? Some think that I should know what three million people working for the Saudi government do daily. It's impossible that the three million would send their daily reports to the leader or the second highest person in the Saudi government. Two of your closest advisors, who are accused of orchestrating this plot were fired by the king removed. From your inner circle. The question is, How could you not know if this was carried out by people who are close to you? The only doctors today the investigations are being carried out and once charges are proven against someone, regardless of their rank, it will be taken to court. No exception made. I've read what the Saudi prosecutor has said about those that are charged in this murder. And it's gruesome the details when you heard that people close to you and in your government carried out such a grisly murder, and that the American government thinks that you ordered it. What did you think I could be the godmother of Lord Coffee, Mother, Cutie. I believe what you mentioned is not correct. There isn't an official statement announced by the American government in this rig. Heart. There isn't clear information or evidence that someone close to me did something to that effect their charges and they're being investigated. But again, you cannot imagine the pain that we suffered, especially as the Saudi government from a crime such as this one. That from September of 2019 the interview available at CBS news dot com, and you heard the Saudi Crown Prince to a translator. Again the headline today a new declassified version of the U. S Intelligence report, concluding that the Saudi Crown prince did approve of the 2018 killing of

But I will say this. This is this is ah, moment of truth. I think for buying if if he wants to have a fundamentally different relationship with Saudi Arabia, I think it's a reflection that he thinks he can have a fundamentally different relationship with Iran. And I think That part of the premises. Incorrect. As long as the Ayatollahs are in tower. Nobody could don's the murder show. Nobody has any doubt that the Saudi government was involved in it. This is a this is a matter of realpolitik. In in that region way need the Saudis and they need us When I was in Moscow, once meeting with President Putin, he just he thought of his real humorous. Subject that we might turn away from the Saudis, and he said to me, Look, if you don't want to sell them weapons, That's fine. I'll sell them weapons. Now.

Here's how to support and celebrate Seattle's first-ever Black Restaurant Week
"There Seattle restaurant week and how this works is hundreds of restaurants in the city participate. They have a special three course menu with a set price, And this is all designed to lower diners in But this week is Black Restaurant Week, which is also a marketing campaign to encourage people to eat and black owned rest. Drawn. But the founders of Black Restaurant week which they're based in Houston, actually, but they have expanded out to the whole country, said that a lot of restaurants that are owned by black people don't have these fancy menus and three course menus, so they were always being left out. So I spoke with Reginald Robinson. He owns Alphas, Louisiana, Cajun seasoning and spices in tents, and he decided to open his Alien store because he's from New Orleans. And he couldn't find any of the foods and products that he misses. Red beans and rice are greens, Po boys, catfish, We have alligator. We have the stuff called Boo Dan. We have crawfish and everything in our story is have that Louisiana brand to it. Gonna top sellers is familiar at being because you know, everybody On Mondays they cooked red beings down in Louisiana just to start. Thing they do. Sometimes we even bring blueberry ice cream here. Anyone down south Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, your eyes light up. People be like, Oh, my God, you have bluebell. So Fallon Farrell, who is one of the founders of Black Restaurant week, she says, Because it's systemic racism, it could be harder for a black person to get a bank loan when they're opening a restaurant. The issued in our community is that a lot of businesses a started with people's personal savings credit cards. Usually when they do get loans. They have higher interest rates, so they just don't have that financial will go room. It's really sustained major hits to a business and so you know, a lot of them really weren't able to get the first round of P P p loans and She says, because of the marketing that happens when they do black restaurant week. They really do bring new customers. And I think last year the average ourselves increases about 30% most businesses. CIA, increasing their social media following us well And then when we talk about ongoing business opportunities, people call us all the time. They because all the time about like, Hey, we're hosting a food truck festival. Give me your list of black on food trucks, You know, so it just creates ongoing business opportunity. So the cool thing is, we kind of talked businesses like Welcome to the network because we're always able to push back our opportunities for you. So I thought to Reginald about if he wants to be identified as a black owned business, you know, at this point, there are a lot of women who say I don't want to be the best female stuff. Can I just be the best chef and I wondered if Reginald just wanted to be a business. Until people realized that you know everybody's equal. You may have to do that so we can get attention. But my whole dream is that you just treat black restaurants just like you a tree. Another restaurant. People don't believe it. But as black owned business, you have to go that extra mile. Just to prove what other people don't have to go through, and that's my dream and hopes one day did. We don't have to do that. It is black History month. That's why I thought that it would be a great opportunity to do this story. I don't have it online yet. But in about an hour if listeners go to my northwest dot com slash Rachel Bell, you can find a directory of black businesses in the region on Deacon Go. We don't support local businesses because they all need your money right now.

"How has food. Tv changed over time. And how has it changed us. All not just us gastropod. That's right. you're listening to gastropod the podcast. That looks at food through the lens of science and history. I'm cynthia graber. And i'm nicola twilley and this episode. We're taking a spin around the dial which sounds medieval but believe us when we say. Tv's used to not have remotes. You had to literally spin odile. Even i barely remember those wild and wonderful days. This episode is supported in part by cabot. Creamery cabot is a co-op of new england and new york dairy farmers who make award winning cheeses with pure rich milk straight from family farms their specialty cheeses include unique flavors like roasted garlic cheddar and their team of cheese graders indirect with every batch to ensure award-winning quality.

You'll also find pairings how to videos and delicious comfort food recipes like the best mac and cheese and more the first thing to know about the very earliest food. Tv wasn't actually on tv. It was on the radio almost as soon as a radio came into being in the nineteen twenties in the us food radio came into being. It was a really easy way for programs to be created because they were easy and cheap. They were obvious outlets for advertising for sponsorship for food products and appliances. So that's where we saw food before. Tv was even a twinkle in the eye. Kathleen collins is a librarian and professor at john jay college of criminal justice and she's the author of the book watching what we eat. The evolution of television cooking shows the stars of these very first food shows. Were hardly stars in today's cents. These radio shows were unglamorous. It was all teaching housewives. How to economize and optimize and generally do all their chores. Better one of the not remotely. Glamorous stars was a woman named and sammy who we can only imagine was supposed to be the wife of uncle sam which is kind of disturbing. She wasn't actually a person. It was a program delivered by an arm of the. Usda and the she was not just one person but several different actors around the country. Adopting regional accents similarly a figure. That's much more well known was betty crocker. She actually started on the radio and like aunt. Sammy was played by many different actresses and she was one of the first we. Could i guess call her one of the first cooking teachers in broadcasting And we have some fun you one for. You are cooking lessons. This week is on some new christmas cookies. And besides that with sending seven ethically recipes to order numbers of schools who had indicated that they want the wednesday menu ambassador. I hope you'll be sure to watch for them on. Sammy's show was called housekeepers. Chat and betty crocker's was the slightly more enticing cooking school of the air. That sounds as though it was all about meringues and souffles and all things fluffy which it decidedly was not and then the very first television station came into being in the nineteen twenties though at the time the technology was still super experimental and people did not have. Tv's in their homes yet. Even as late as nineteen fifty only nine percent of american homes had a tv set. Foot made the jump to tv before. Tv even made the jump to people's living rooms so more megan was thirst. Tv shafran her snapple titled Tv show was called suggestions for dishes to be prepared and cooked in fifteen minutes and that demonstrated single ring. Cookery back in hundred thirty six. This is julie smith. She's a food writer. And podcast and the author of a new book called taste and the tv chef and she's british so i will translate for her single ring. Cookery means the kind of thing you can make on just one burner in your bed. Sit which is british for a studio apartment. Thanks for the cross pen translation of my uses as well as my bizarre accident. True also interesting. Megan was doing this. Fifteen minute meal about eighty years. Before jamie oliver's tv show and book of the same title. We have a picture of her filming her show dressed in. What looks like a raincoat on our website. Glamour personified where was i but by the nineteen forties food. Tv show started showing up for real in the us to the shows were cheap to produce and they were sponsored by kitchen and food companies and they were pretty boring. It was a very practical probably rather dry and yet a lot of the airtime was filled with these programs in different markets around the country. These shows obviously targeted at women most. Tv's at the time. Were actually in public places rather than homes especially bars where there weren't a lot of housewives. There was a show actually the first national televised. Tv show was james beard and it started in the mid nineteen forties and despite everything i just said about how most of the tv shows and the radio shows were led by home. Economists james beard was not a home economist. He was a gourmet and he was really all about the food and so it was a little strange to have this show on. Tv in a bar being watched by men james beard was kind of a one off for a long time but still here we go right off the bat you can see a gender divide in food tv women were the ones who were proper and teaching viewers had cook the man a ormond. Just appreciate food for food. Food was a chore for women and a pleasure for men until the only lucas came along. So diani lucas. Like james beard was a bit of an anachronism. She was a cordon bleu trained chef. Who was born in. Britain came from a very artistically oriented family. Do you only had a restaurant and cooking school in new york and she treated the kitchen as her art studio. it was her serious creative outlet. Her recipes were complex and mostly french. And they took a lot of time to make she was also kind of a taskmaster her british accent and her scraped back hair and she did not cut corners. But kathleen says the. Tony did occasionally have a little sparkle in her eye. Like when she told viewers to use as much rama's they liked or needed in their cribs. Suzanne that show was on the evening and prime time and it ran from nineteen forty seven until nineteen fifty-six but she was kind of ahead of her time. I would not be surprised if many of your listeners have never heard of the oni lucas. She just came along at the wrong time for the public. Viewing audience at diani did have a big influence on one particularly important person. Julia child the french chef. I'm doolittle she was a california girl. She was not a spy for the cia before being cooking show guru as many people think she was a research assistant at the oh s the precursor to the cia but she was really one of these happy accidents. She married paul child who had a foreign service assignment. in france. They moved to france and she fell in love with food. And she got herself trained. You know at the core blows school which was really challenging as a woman and she just became. You know a master in nineteen sixty one. Julia published a book with two other. Women called mastering the art of french. Cooking it is eight home and that seven hundred fifty. Two page book provided the kick. That landed julia in front of millions of viewers happen was. Julia was doing the rounds promoting her book and she'd been invited onto a book show hosted by a local professor on w. g. b. h. Which is the boston public. Tv station and she decided she didn't want to just talk with the professor. She wanted to cook. She wanted to teach him how to make a proper french omelette. The professor wasn't a particularly skilled cook in this live tv cooking class but people wrote into the show after it aired. They called julia a hoot and the producer thought. Julia was incredibly well-spoken so gbh gave her her own show. It would eventually become the french chef. The show was a huge hit. It was on national. Tv for three decades and it not only made julia household name but it also kind of launched the modern era of food

"cia" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Let's get back to terry's interview with stephen kinzer about his book. Poisoner in chief. Sidney gottlieb and the cia searched for mind control. It's now out in paperback. In the fifties and early sixties gottlieb headed the secret. Cia program m. k. ultra which conducted experiments. To see of lsd and other drugs could be weaponized as a form of mind control godly. Also the cia as chief chemist creating poisons and unusual ways of surreptitiously administering them. Should they be needed to kill enemies including world leaders. Anti headed the program that created high tech gadgets for spies. Now what are the uses gottlieb envisioned for lsd. Was you could slip into an unfriendly. World leader and their behavior would be so erratic and weird that they'd lose popularity or they'd be thrown out of office because they would appear to not be able to function normally anymore you're right so godly was the chief. Cia chemist in that capacity. He was also the chief poison maker so he made the poisons to kill joanne lie. Fidel castro patrice lumumba. But he wasn't only involved in making poisons to kill people he was also interested in making toxins that would affect their behavior in various ways He made a list of the ways. You thought he thought drugs could be used to affect behavior. Could you find a drug that would alter personality structure in a way that would allow the operator to take control of another person's behavior could you produce shock and confusion or physical disablement. At one point. He came up with the idea of using a spray. Can full of lsd to pollute. The studio in which feed l. castro was going to give a radio speech then. Presumably castro would become disoriented. And as you say lose popularity and fall from power. This is the level of bizarre plots. The he became involved with when he was hired as part of a separate aspect of his job besides k. Ultra to be the person who devised toxins and psychoactive substances to be used in covert operations by seattle officers around the world. So this is just a little sidebar. That i found very interesting as somebody who listens to a lot of jazz. The people who sidney gottlieb hired included george hunter white who directed a lot..
"cia" Discussed on Juicy Scoop with Heather McDonald
"So I'm husband after I left. Fbi Okay yes. Why did you choose to leave the FBI to say that I was sexually harassed would be in understatements? Can you share a little bit about that? Yes so I think it really starts. Adamy asked the Letter writing process that had to do And so one of the first things you do. They have like different. Weeks have different trading sections to them and the first thing you do is interview you learn how to interview subjects or victims And so they asked where students though. I were assumed that I had were many times at the many people that no one ever seems to have like a problem with it was pulled aside afterwards and told that my soups made my interview instructive. Different instructors for different things Quote uncomfortable I'm guessing that means Horny. I'm not one hundred dollars inch and it was just like an Ann Taylor clip suit. What was it? I think it was from Nordstrom? Yeah it was I mean look I do tend to. I like high fashion. That's true but I'm never somewhat inappropriate in my body ever if I remember being a really cute black suits with a jacket. And he's kind of red pinstripes. Mary feat that went through and so they asked that. I write him a letter apologizing for how I looked in the suit and so I go through different versions of like the letter I wanted to write and then the letter ultimately right row. Is You know an apology letter until I drove down to a Walmart. Which is that was the closest thing in Quantico and I bought suits I think at the time it was like a two or four and I bought seats in Twelve and it was really funny because my mom at recently had to go through old pictures some media of my graduation from FBI Academy and I have a picture myself in a leading by my parents in the crotch. Suit is literally two my shins. My mom is sorry. That was one instance. Yeah I thought maybe you know. Stay at the academy kind of ride out all this stuff and maybe things will get better in my office And they definitely did not so you get into that in the book to. Oh Yes yes. Oh that's good and then as far as that horizon was ever like you know like a physical thing of like you know. Do this and this will happen for you or anything like that. No never no. I don't remember anything like that I do remember hearing that my boss had said I make a good agent on my knees under his desk. Yeah and I think that was sort of the straw that broke the camel's back for me My parents you know. Their baby boomers were born in the forties. And they've sort of been which I appreciate it. We'll just get through. We're not gonNA fight your battles for you makes you stronger but I remember going home and tell him my dad that comment and he was like. Where can we find in a jury? That was the first time that he flew off the handle right. And so what did you do? That was just your reason to lease or did you ever finally it. I did file complaints For the time being why they're like fleshing out my complaint. Their solution to the problem was to move to an office about three hours away. And that's not I should not have upper my whole life for like you need to figure out a different solution. And they wouldn't and so. I laughed and I would like to tell you that like things have changed but I was contacted by a group about seventeen women last year. Who launched a class action lawsuit against the FBI for Bender Discrimination? So unfortunately it hasn't changed or maybe with them and your book. It will change people aware so your husband wants his he do. He's an orthodontist. Okay your teeth. Look Nice and I'm watching you on zoom now like one of my questions that I had is it a good salary. Cia and FBI. I mean pins rightly like the level I entered in at its government scale right so like when I entered in entry bat time with the scale of a gs one to like fifteen. So I answered in a believe in AIDS address. Aides 'em when I left I was GS twelve. Which is like pre management. So I do remember Not Salary remember my permit with my friend who I'm still friends with and US sitting there in wikileaks I've ourselves like. Hey we just like came back from a war zone where like we could have died. Mccain even afford to go to the movies right now you just like being kind of crabby about that now at the FBI pay was a little bit better because you get with Cologne horsemen hazard. Pay because you you carry a gun so it was a little better there so you had gun training like an and some physical training right Fbi as far as like how to like. Throw someone over your shoulder at Quantico would have to pass P. T. tests for different times while you were there and then you have obviously a ton of Tana gun training And then you have you know. He enhanced combat training and things like that. So do you still own a gun today? Like in your home I do not. I don't because I have a four and a half year old right which I think is great. I've never what's interesting about my dad is We never had a gun in our house. He never wanted to get in the house for the reason where he's like that guy is going to be used on someone in this house if we have this either someone's GonNa come in and steal it or someone within our household is going to crazy news it and you know it's just it's interesting you.

"Have. Chapo engage in a bit of fun. Funny Funny Stop People. Digits Corny. One liners they're are two types of PITA. `SMS there's one that's like almost like a joke if an. Ai told the joke and that is when she says things like the community that from We care less about the Nasdaq more about building a coat rack. It will be something like something resembling like gets worse. Where I'm from. We care less about the schools Montessori and more about raising our son Corey and that's like that's like almost like the least evil type of Peter's because it's like the robot wants to be part of humanity kind of like a spiritual yearning and you wish you could update who knows the human a huma. You wish you could update his invidious settings to get that done and we wouldn't have to go through this whole thing because you know he kind of feels pain. Oh yeah he definitely does pay in that. Little Arthur fifty makes there's fans that was Felix. That CLIP IS TRAP. House added most appealing. It's funny smart and sharp. They're mocking a rival for his style and his pretension clearly satire. But this next part where they talk about. Buddha judge being in the CIA was not satire. So when you begin to assemble these facts are like go down these various rabbit holes or look at the bigger picture you will never ever get and this is what Tom O'Neil said to us. That's very important you will never ever ever get to a point of capital. T. Journalistic Truth. That can be published in the New York Times. Oh It's Not New York Times truth. What would their strict definitions of things that are true? Then Virgil issued this disclaimer. Oh and by the way very very quickly anyone out there who's a reporter for New York magazine Politico The New Yorker The New York Times watching anything like that. This is off the record. Okay so is it a joke. Is it not a joke? It is a joke because people laughed. And of course you can't go off the record on a publicly available podcast but it shows. Chapo knows what they're doing. They understand the uses and purposes of propaganda and they also know what they're about to do in their extremely influential and popular podcast. There are about to smear Bernie Sanders biggest rival to date with a bat. Shit insane conspiracy theory so here is Chapel member Matt Christmas and making the case that Pete Buddha j.j active CIA asset he began by signing two thousand eight New York Times. Op Ed. That Buddha Jude wrote about Somaliland the enclave of Somalia that was seeking independence at the same time that the US government was making inroads to attempt to establish military bases there with the connivance of the local leadership. Pete British and his friend from Harvard his friend from Harvard. A guy whose name is oh could Lord Nathaniel Meyers. This is a guy who works for the US aid for International Development Organization which has been for forty years a known CIA FRONT USA is actually the largest government sponsored agency in the world half of all US foreign aid flows through the guys continue to trace Buddha judges career then he joins naval intelligence and goes Afghanistan. The navy famously necessary to get in the landlocked Afghanistan. Navy's really good at mountain guessing where he has admitted his books that he spent time in. Cia SAFE HOUSES. A Guy who has glowing portrait of this guy talked about how in his study. He has maps of mineral resources of Afghanistan. Airmiles fucking house. He's a he's a cartography. Bus loves maps. He's a dampener. So this is the guy who's entire career before he becomes mayor is pure intelligence. Absolutely there is not a single thing he did it. He's a little McKinsey or with the military that does not indicate that he was doing at the very least like high end drifting McKinley. Shit or at the worst like project Phoenix like targeted assassinations. Lgbtq CIA. Joke that someone else's show you know project. Phoenix was the bad program during the Vietnam War. That was credited if you WANNA use that word with killing tens of thousands of Viet Cong sympathizers many if not most of them neutral civilians not to be fair to Chapo killing tens of thousands of innocent Vietnamese or a similar venture was at the upper bounds of what they say that Pete booted was doing right before being elected mayor of South Bend Indiana and they described his morality this way and then he and then he comes mayor of South Bend where he becomes. The most media savvy most media connected guy in this piss ant town of one hundred thousand people where his job is basically just to ethnically cleanse the black people out of the neighborhood so they could be gentrified by the way how this small town mayor become a presidential candidate. Perhaps I mean the way I figured is that maybe saw him like a lot of voters did and said. Ooh I like this guy like say I like how he says it his temperament and his story perhaps viewed and say that you know someone who did or find a plausible that. There's a reason why unreasonable person might like Buddha judge. No you're wrong it's not. It's so then he gets to run and as I said. He's running against one of the biggest fields. They've ever had governors senators every half of them. Just trying to run the Obama playbook all of them fall away and he's the last one left and he is the one that the media is willing to go to bat for and lie on behalf of after he stole Iowa so at this point. I suppose it's incumbent upon me to deny being a member of Project MOCKINGBIRD Mockingbird to catching fire guests. That's the updated program though denying being in the employ of the CIA is exactly what someone in the employee of the CIA would say. Well putting aside this unfalsifiable premise. Let us continue to do Langley's bidding as I play you. More of the unhinged conspiratorial ramblings of the number one Bernie Sanders podcast in America Co hosted by the New York Times bestselling authors and their pal amber alert frost by the way frost was a contributor to the Columbia Journalism Review. She wrote the ninth most popular article there last year the tone in that article was tailored to the CJ our audience not CIA see Jr Columbia Journalism Review for the Chapo audience. Frost took a different tone one embraced conspiracy but also told the true believers fueled by the truths that were revealed that they must not give away the game when trying to convince others to oppose Buddha. Judge is actually really important that we don't look Gracie Matt played it less close to the vest fucking bear. Pete is at the nexus of every black ops. Cia fucking thing in the last thirty fucking years so since he was eight. This is the point in their podcast where the hosts both embraced the depths of their theories and offered a fig-leaf of deniability using phrases. Like you can believe all of this. You believe none of it. The end result equals the same thing. Which is that you need to know. Powerful forces oppose Bernie Sanders. They advise the audience. On the best way to take this knowledge this special knowledge that they imparted and to use it when dealing with members of the public who might not be as informed as they are and I remember early on the show when we were making fun of Pete by calling him agent Pete or saying he's up and of course I was half kidding then am I have kidding now I will leave it to you. The audience to judge for yourself. This is some Glenn Beck. Alex Jones nine eleven truth or type technique right there. So ask yourself. Is The difference. That those conspiracies are wrong and the Buddha judges a CIA cat's paw right. Is that the difference or the difference that Pete Booed Aeges. Working BLACK OPS THEORY. Is that different from birtherism because one is in service of a bad outcome and the other fuels are righteous fire. I think it's a lot like birtherism in that. The crazy private inaccurate theory really inspires the congregation and they know when they interact with the public. Who Don't think like they do. They know how to put on a more plausible public face. Oh well no matter what you think about that. You have to really be concerned with his executive overreach with the DACA program. But privately they're going out there and saying this with such fervor because they know he was really born in Kenya the Chapo guys do say version of. Hey believe it. Or don't believe it but they definitely think that it's important enough to put out in their podcast. Which is listened to by one hundred to two hundred thousand listeners? Because they know that even if it's not true if their fellow sanders supporters believe. It's true. Then it's all to the good in. There is what I say is that allies ally and propaganda is propaganda. And that's why it's useful for me to surface this horse shit so we could say that it's horse shit. You WanNA say universal healthcare. That's a great idea. Just realized this. Okay maybe it is in a bag with worship if universal healthcare and Free. College are the right goals. What does it say that we have to use? Horsh it as a means to achieve these goals. Does it say? You can't have anything good unless you embrace insane fictions to get there. I'm trying to be fair to Bernie Sanders himself. The person the candidate he never said any of this. There's no evidence he believes it again. The part about there being no evidence. I think that's important. And also every good leader has some bonkers followers or followers who spout bonkers notions and every minute but Bernie Sanders. The candidacy is premised on a political revolution. The coming revolution. So if you throw in with him maybe you should ask yourself. How many of your fellow revolutionaries will be motivated by beliefs like this by thinking like this or even by tactics like pretending to believe theories like this or throwing lies out there just in case they inspire others who they can use to achieve. What they say is a righteous goal. Anyway that's the update about what's going on over there. Chapa thought you should know. And that's it for today show. Priscilla lobby is the associate producer of the jets. She's working out the theory that lives. Warren is Massad Massad to the core Daniel. Schrader produces the gist. He knows trump might be working with the Russians but he thinks we dodged a bullet with John Casick who might be in the pocket of Nefarious Levin Factions. The Gist. I take it.

"cia" Discussed on Intercepted with Jeremy Scahill
"Have you read the report. And what do you think. And he said I've read it and now I don't know what the facts are. It's very disturbing. You know. It sounds ZIP. He's echoing. I'm with you your report. Meant something and I'm guessing. Senators were thinking. Maybe John Brennan's the guy who can make CIA reckon with the use of torture. Of course he wasn't. I think it bears repeating what happened as you were investigating this for the Senate what the CIA did on domestic mastic soil to the investigator from the very body set up to oversee the CIA under a democratic administration with a Democratic nominee of director so caroline rolling crafts is nominated to be the general counsel the CIA during that nomination hearing a real mind. Mark Udall senator from Colorado acknowledges acknowledges for the first time publicly about this internal. CIA review called the Panetta Review. Senator Udall opened up his statement. This way saying the CIA as is leaking information in newspapers saying that the Senate report is factually inaccurate. It's never going to be released. Because of all the factual errors and he says. I don't think that's true true because hey I've gone through the records I've gone through the documents but also I've seen your internal review and it appears this review which which was initiated by former director. Panetta is consistent with intelligent committee's report but amazingly it conflicts with the official CIA response response to the committee's report in if this is true it raises fundamental questions. About why a review the conducted internally years ago and never are provided to. The committee is so different from the sea is formal written response to the committee study. I think you can. You can see the disconnect there and it sent shockwaves through the agency that we had this internal review see I had conducted and we knew what they had found the CIA freaks out and they decide to go through through the Senate's computers to find out. How many versions of this document existed? They went through our emails. There's evidence that they entered the room. This is spying on Americans and the argument is well. We had to protect our computer system. Will this was the Senate computer system. Eventually the inspector general finds out about this the sky's own internal watchdog finds out about it and within. I WanNa say it's within twenty four hours. They make a criminal referral to the Department of Justice saying we believe the CIA. I has violated the law by searching these computers and going into computers. Unlawfully this is response is to make a criminal them over for all against the Senate staff saying Oh no it's not us who broke the law. It's the Senate staff and basically accused us of hacking into the CIA has computers to obtain this Panetta Review and they maintain this is perhaps the most laughable argument John Brennan maintains that we were never authorized authorized to have that document it was a draft document. We requested every document in the sea is possession related the detention interrogation program. What could be more relevant? Haven't to a Senate investigation. Then the sea is own internal investigation into the same program. Second argument is that it's a draft document so therefore we should have it. You may remember. We were talking earlier about the briefings that were scheduled for the president. One of the most effective tools for understanding what was going on was to see one document. Two hundred drafts of that document. How it changed right Bush was going to be told about the waterboard? They'd limited that. I mean of those six point three million pages maybe half or more where draft draft documents. And let's not forget. What dependent review is? It's a damning argument against the size torture program that identifies it as ineffective that identify. CIA officers misleading the Bush administration. That's what they're trying to suppress. What's it like for you when you see John Brennan on TV as a commentator about about the lawlessness of the trump administration? You know people are both good and bad and make good decisions and bad decisions. So that's one there but I'm appalled at John Brennan Mike Morale Porter Goss any of these individuals. Phil Mudd are on television. Talking about the intelligence agence community and people view them Michael Hayden right people view them as upstanding citizens who we can trust. There's an entire pedic's to the executive summary. The report of Michael Hayden have his testimony to the committee on the left hand. Side is what he says on the right hand side is the truth when Michael Hayden is told this is a really important part of the Senate report when he is told. We've got a problem. We've told the Department of Justice the White House and Congress that we've never had more than one hundred detainees. Somebody comes to Michael. Hayden says. Listen we found more. There's at least one hundred twelve probably a ton more than that. What should we do? Michael Hayden says we've always had less than one hundred detainees. Pick a date when this program began. We've always had less Michael Hayden's on television as it does an anti-trump or whatever he's a darling. Erling of these These television stations as if he is a guy that with integrity I do believe integrity is a scarce resource and when you fail to show integrity. There is some accountability accountability in that. Accountability is sorry. Can't be commentator on television anymore as someone who provides truthful answers to the American people unless you explain what was happening back then and none of them have confronted allies. They've told the American people or the President Department justice or Congress. Is it your sense that the best way to prevent this this from happening again would have been to hold those who were directing it and carrying it out accountable including through criminal prosecution Russian under threat of imprisonment. I think people should have lost their jobs at the very least. Maybe you're not nominated to be director but maybe you're now in charge of the parking rush to CIA right. There needs to be some form of accountability. And let me be clear. This is a massive CIA problem. But I think it's also a massive societal program. The same Senate Intelligence Committee Committee that produced this report that fought tooth and nail to get it released and said this must never happen again. The same Senate Intelligence Committee that did that confirmed confirmed Gina Hospital director. Who knows better about this program then that committee and they went ahead and confirmed genus? Bill to me that's inexcusable. I'm no longer in the Senate so I can say that. But the fact that you'd have members who voted for that report who knew the details and then years later say okay. You've said you'll never do it again. What do you mean you'll never duty? It was found to be ineffective unlawful. And that you lied to the White House Department Justin Congress about it. Of course you're never going to do it again. Danny Jones. I WanNa just as as a person in this country I want to thank you for not giving up and for everything that you did and I hope one day that we all can read those seven thousand pages that you and your colleagues worked so hard to produce so that the truth would be known. Thank you thank you. Daniel Jones was the lead investigator for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. And Its probe into this as a program. His work on this still classified seven thousand page report is the subject of the new feature film. The report directed by Scott Z burns. That film is now on Amazon and it was produced in part by topic studios which is part of the intercepts parent company. I looked media. Daniel Jones is now the president of the Penn quarter group be on the lookout for an extended version of this interview with Daniel Jones on an upcoming special bonus episode of intercepted it while.

"Sir. David Addington being misled by the CIA on details so if David Addington is being misled by the CIA. They're certainly going to mislead the chair and Vice Chair. Share of the intelligence committees on both sides on the issue of winded Bush. No and you know. When did Cheney no and now you're talking about Addington being misled? Do you know no that. It's not that they're just smarter than you that they didn't put the stuff on paper. Look these guys. Were were masters at their craft in a lot of ways to is it possible that Cheney was actually very involved and was like listen. None of this goes on any paper while we were doing this investigation. One of the stories from the agency he was. Hey we are just following orders. Right this is an art program and we asked the agency if if this is the case find us the record somewhere. where's the email now? There's not even an email discussion among people saying we were with Cheney today and he told us we have to do this it does not exist. We asked for it. It was in the sea is interest to produce it because that was part of their narrative which is just following orders with the records. Indicate is that this was a CIA program. Voice did upon the bush-cheney White House not the other way round named the figures who were running this program. All that is largely redacted. What is the role of Jose? Rodriguez for those aid. Regas was the head of the counterterrorism center. He is in the report. He played a major role his chief of staff was now the currency. I director Gina Hospital in November of two thousand five. The Senate voted to you. Basically look at all detained treatment across the US government. There had been rumors of abuse right. And the voters of course and that vote failed felt it was led by Senator Carl Levin from Michigan he thought it was really important understand what dod was doing and with the CIA was doing detainees the very next day EH. Jose Rodriguez and his chief staff. Send a cable to a offsite location to destroy the interrogation videotapes of Abu Zubaydah. Waited which were done And a man named Abdallah regime on a sheree. But you're done two thousand two and what's really important to know is after two thousand to the. CIA was actively actively seeking to destroy those tapes and they went to the CIA director at the time this Tenet and then it was Porter Goss and they said we want to get rid of these tapes. Both tenant and Gaza Says No. You can't do it. John Rizzo who was acting general counsel the CIA said. You cannot destroy these tapes. But I'll go to the White House and I'll ask them. I'll go to the Department of Justice and ask them and the message always came back. You cannot destroy these tapes so after that vote in the Senate. Jose Rodriguez asked his chief of staff to drive a cable. And just screw it. We're going to do what we want. And they sent a cable to this off site for destruction those tapes and what was unique about this cable is typically. I mean if you're in the office environment and you're you're announcing policy decision you have a two line to four or five people and then you're CC. Line is all the lawyers all the policy people. There's forty people in the email same thing with CIA cables in this case it was just too that detention site and it wasn't until a cable came back from the site that said the ninety plus videotapes of torture have been destroyed now. Those people seed everyone appropriate all the lawyers all the higher ups ups. And that's when the general counsel of the CIA learns that they're destroyed and they go crazy because they know the Bush Whitehouse and Department of Justice. Said you cannot destroy these tapes. So what are they do they cover it up until Mark Mazzetti of the New York Times writes a front page article in December of two thousand seven which says the CIA destroyed torture. Tapes launches our investigation of the Senate. It launches a criminal investigation by Michael Mukasey at the Department of Justice. This is the Bush Department of Justice. They launch a criminal probe of the CIS destruction tapes. Eventually they put a guy named John. Durham in charge of that. Durham's investigation goes all the way to August August. Two thousand twelve right just months before we submit are largely our final draft of the report. And they don't bring any criminal charges and they say they looked at ninety ninety nine detainees. Of course we found there was at least one hundred nineteen and what we are GonNa do is we're going to recommend that the CIA hold to individuals accountable. There's two people the a most culpable for destruction. These tapes and those people are Jose Rodriguez and Gina Hospital at the time. There's a man at the CIA named Mike like morale who becomes acting director. At one point he was also in charge of the CI's response to the Senate. He is tasked by the CIA director to create an Accountability Accountability Board for Gina. has-been Jose Rodriguez and Mike Morell said. I'm not going to set up an accountability board for Genus. Jose Rodriguez. I'm GonNa do this myself. And he takes. Jose Rodriguez out for a beer and describes how this is going to go down. Jose Rodriguez gets a letter in his file. Continues to work for the agency and Gina. Hospital is let off absolutely free win. According to the documents that you've that you reviewed winded the program. And the last detainee we have records for was a detaining named Mohammed Rahim in two thousand seven Muhammad Rahim team is captured and brought to CIA custody is entire time NCAA custody Mohammed Rahim produced zero zero intelligence reports. Not One. It's hard to imagine not getting one piece of intelligence and Mohammad Rahim went through multiple rounds of of these enhanced interrogation techniques so two weeks on nothing and then additional two weeks and they kept trying to theorize on ways they could get muhammed regime to talk using these torture tactics and eventually Mama team says you know you can kill me. I'm just not going to talk to you right and in fact I want you to kill me and at this point. It's two thousand seven. The agency says we should probably take a look at this program. This is the first time to see. I conducted a real internal review of the program and N.. Data side that basically. There's no evidence that these torture techniques worked and that there's a lot of evidence that they produced false answers and her basically ineffective active and they make a recommendation to the by the way these are. CIA officers senior officers. And they say we should use report building techniques because that seems like the most effective in our review of records and we should ask other. US government agencies how they interrogate people and we should go to our allies and friends and ask them. What do you find most effective when you detain someone? This is the end of the program the very last detainee and this is still under the Bush administration do you. Actually I find it plausible that Bush didn't know about this until September of two thousand six. What was April to them? Six sorry when he and when he got a briefing he expressed discomfort of detainees chained to the ceiling. Going to the bathroom on themselves. That's the quote and it freaks me out because they know chained chained to the ceiling going into bathrooms elves. That's the least we do but what we know is what the CIA knows right. This is six point. Three million records of his own records regardless of what Bush knows the themselves thought Bush did not know couple data points. We have memos that were written for Bush that was going to talk about waterboarding and techniques. We see all the drafts of the memo. First waterboarding taken out by the lawyers saying this not talk about that. And then we see the other terra Gatien techniques taken out of the next draft of the memo and then we see another memo written. which is we do really tough techniques? Were still harder than law enforcement. But they're legal. Don't don't worry and then the next decision is they'll be no briefing of the president. None of those drafts get to the president. Condoleeza Rice is told there will be no briefing George Tenant is interviewed by his own inspector general and tenant says he has never spoken to the president about this program porter. Goss says I have never never spoken to the President about this program. Now of course President Bush's book says that he did know about the Interrogation tactics and that he personally personally approved them. What's really interesting? Is John Rizzo. Who was the acting director? Then later wrote a book himself and he calls President Bush. A Real stand-up guy. And this it tells you everything you need to know about the CIA by the way and he says President Bush is a real stand up guy because he didn't know anything about what we were doing in that program and yet he took responsibility for it and he defended the agency. Barack Obama wins the election in two thousand eight and he names Leon Panetta Aneta as his first CIA director. What are the first moves Leon? Panetta makes well. It's clear at this point that there is going to be an expansive investigation of the size detention interrogation program. We the Senate Intelligence Committee had launched an investigation two thousand seven in the destruction tapes. Leon Panetta does what I think any director would do. He's new to this. He wasn't at the agency during the interrogation program. President Obama ends the program within days of coming into office and this Senate. Intelligence investigation is gearing up to be one of the largest investigations in the I ever and Leon Panetta doesn't want to be surprised. Christ so he sets up his own internal study group right. He does a parallel investigation into the documents that the Senate is receiving these six point. Three million pages of records Kurds. He sets up a parallel group of officers of highly decorated. Ci obsers to go through the same records to write a report for him on what the Senate might eight find. And what's important about the Panetta Review which we call this is it came largely to the same conclusions as the Senate investigation in some ways. It's far more harsh. As as I mentioned the Senate was very conservative but what we included in that report. We couldn't find multiple documents if we weren't one hundred percent. Sure the facts. It did not go in that seven thousand page report but but I always thought you know Panetta and the agency was smart they would have put out that review ahead of the Senate and said this program happened. We've learned lessons. This is what we're going to do to make sure it never happens again. And and I don't know what the Senate student over there but we gotta control of her own ship instead. They bury their internal report and they attack. Ours is being factually inaccurate. Describe the way that the Obama Administration treated you viewed your investigation. Did they help it. They hinder it first of all. Let's let's talk about the August. Two Thousand Fourteen speech by President Obama August twenty. Fourteen is when A redacted version of our report was provided back to the Senate for Release Ace and the White House believed that the Senate was just going to accept whatever they redacted and release it. Was That Day With the anticipation that the Senate would release ridiculously ridiculously blacked out and report. That Obama said we tortured some folks. We tortured some folks and a lot of people will remember that speech largely for that statement. But what people don't remember is the next few lines. which is you know I? It's important for us not to Feel too you sanctimonious. In retrospect about the tough job that those folks at and a lot of those Were working hard under enormous pressure and are real patriots and to me that was this the biggest Gut Punch not only to the Senate who was on a bipartisan basis. Working to get the truth out of this program. It was a punch in the gut to all the C. I.. Officers who left the CIA who left this program program who went through appropriate channels. Who went to the zone inspector general and said the CIA is engaged in war crimes and of course the White House was always always a basically standing in front of us on the last two years of trying to complete that report and get it out they let the agency go out there and make false claims about the report itself and then they fought the Senate tooth and nail again on a bipartisan basis? To fight the release this report. What relationship to John Brennan have to the torture program and the CIA? During that Era John Brennan held some very senior leadership roles during the primaries executive director of the agency during during the program and certainly was aware of it. That's the number three guy at at. Ci and Brian Maintains that he objected to the program. But we had six point three million pages of records and and we looked for that right. We look for some sign of could be text message people saying Hey John Brennan said today. He's against this program could be an email. John Brennan sent. We couldn't find find any evidence and we really wanted to find it. I just wanted to confirm that. And in fact he was Slated to be Obama. CIA Director Right off the bat in that first term but his nomination was effectively killed by Democrats in the Senate not the Republicans but by Democrats in the Senate and the central concern. Concern was Brennan and the question of torture and the CIA. Absolutely am that time the Senate thought it would be a terrible idea to reward award somebody who has knowledge of this torture program and elevate them to be. CIA Director and for Obama to nominate them just just seemed a crazy but of course John Brennan stays in the White House in a non Senate confirmed position where he becomes the overlord. And and Ryan is the guy who has shepherding in the new era of expanded drone drone strikes. So he does his time there in the Non Senate confirmed position and then things settled down a bit and the next time around Obama puts him up and he largely we just sales through his confirmation and become director at that point a draft of the Senate report had been provided to the CIA and John Brennan was asked very pointedly..

"I'm Jeremy Scahill coming from the offices of the intercept in New York City and this is episode one ten of intercepted Democrats crazy and you know what they have to be careful because when the shoes the other foot and some day hopefully in a very long distant future you'll have the Democrat president a Republican House and they'll do the same thing because somebody picked in our refrigerator and you don't like it so let's excellent so that's not the way our country is supposed to be run as the impeachment hearings investigating. Donald Trump are continuing with the House Judiciary Dish Airy Committee picking up from the Intelligence Committee. It's pretty clear that trump did what he keeps screaming that he didn't do. He abused the powers of office. It is clear that trump has done all sorts of stuff that justify impeaching him and criminally prosecuting him at the same time. It's really hard to get passionately. Nationally worked up about the specific facts of the Democrats impeachment efforts when you look at the vast array of presidential crimes that go completely unpunished and are actually often celebrated. I'm talking about war. Crimes crimes of economic terror like all of his predecessors Donald Trump is authorizing. The operation is regularly that knowingly. Kill civilians just look at the most recent drone strike in Afghanistan a US drone strike killed five people after it struck a car that was rushing mother to the hospital after she experienced complications from a home birth. The strike kill the twenty five year. Old Mother Milana three correlative. Send the car's driver in southeastern Afghanistan while Barack Obama who presided over the massive expansion of US drone strikes would publicly express remorse morse for the killing of civilians. While also continuing to kill civilians. Trump has taken a different approach. He celebrates war criminals he pardons them or restores restores their ranks over the objections of senior career. Military officers just look at the recent cases of navy seals who did heinous acts while all in us uniform the whole trump Ukraine affair in its technical and mundane details has had this unintended impact of unmasking the the hypocrisy and overwhelming power of the state and its minions to define what real crimes actually look like. Trump is using the office so the presidency to wage a dirty war against a political opponent. That's a real crime trump using the office of the Presidency to kill maim or starve civilians. Well that's just foreign policy. There is absolutely no story in recent. US history. That better illustrates this brutal reality of what American American exceptionalism really means than the post nine eleven CIA torture program and the ways in which both the Bush and Obama administrations did everything everything possible to ensure that no one would ever be held accountable and that the full truth of what was done under this program would not see the light of day the new feature film from Amazon Studios.

"Tell me about the story that you had been reporting out a few months ago my colleague Adam Goldman. I started doing some reporting about a key. CIA asset who had been offered exfiltration from Russia by the CIA and we knew that this source was the main Ayn person who told the C. I. Who told the entire intelligence community that Vladimir Putin interfered in the election in favor donald trump so so this person was really important and what happened to this person was a little bit of a mystery Julian Barnes covers national security times anytime. You're trying to report about sensitive intelligence. It's extremely slow going. I had one conversation with a person who as I was asking the question. He said stop. I do not want to hear that question. I want you to ask me that question so it's very painstaking work but last week as I was doing reporting according I learned that a cable network was onto one of the stories I was working on Friday and I was nervous but I let that go cross your fingers and went home for the day. Cross your fingers go home and Monday morning. I got a call aw that. CNN was going to report the story good morning. Jim Shudo in New York and I'm poppy harlow. We're so glad you're with us this Monday morning and we do begin with a really significant. CNN exclusive exclusive Jim Jim this is your reporting you have learned about a highly secretive intelligence operation by the United States. Try Poppy be a multiple trump administration officials with direct knowledge. Tell me that in a previously undisclosed secret mission in two thousand seventeen the US successfully extracted from Russia one one of its highest level covert sources inside the Russian government and knowledge then what happens silver so it was not long after CNN broke the news that Russia apparently released the spies name. We have not confirmed the name of the spine nor will we repeat the name. The Russians revealed at first when this happens you think oh it's Russian disinformation but then you start a quick google search and looks like this guy was a diplomat looks like this guy was a diplomat in the United States at some point and Lo and behold. There's a deed for a house in the Virginia suburbs. You just google the name of this spy oddly enough an address. POPs up for what appears to be a senior Russian official working with the US. What do you actually do with that information so it's sort of shocking to find that it's just profoundly weird like this is not how it's supposed to work like. Russia's not supposed to release the name aim of the spy like you're not supposed to Google the spy in your backyard but what you do with that information as you drive out and pay a visit so the next morning I the family car was in use so I rented a car two go. Which is very small all smart car? Would you're not supposed to take on the highway but I discovered you can can achieve speeds of sixty five miles an hour with a very very small smart car here in that classic spy thriller car and you know it's not like you're sneaking up when you drive in basically a clown car but I needn't thought right as I was weaving through the curvy roads of Virginia subdivisions that I was going to surprise anyone because when I arrived at the house there it was a half dozen other reporters there so I parked my car said hello to my arrival at the Washington Post and then I walked up the driveway. I'm walking down to the cul. De Sac where you can see. The House has a big porch. The three stories very large house. I just remember being like surprised like these are huge. The house's pretty good to be a spy. Guess Lawn has been freshly mowed. The cuttings are still on the driveway here so I walked up to the house lot of windows right here on the porch. You know someone has been in here and has drawn the shutters. I I walked up earlier and you could see inside inside and now they've drawn the drapes. Children's toys visible in the backyard wading pool. There's cars ars from another reporter left in the door. I'm GonNa ring the Bell and then without thinking I put my hand on the doorknob and then I just instantly they thought Oh man Russia is known for going after spies by coating doorknobs with nerve agents and you just touch the doorknob and I just touch the DOORKNOB but of course you're fine. I'm fine momentary scare. The GARBAGE BIN is left out front front. The neighbors had said that there was a dog behind the sheriff was supposed to come look but nobody was home but I I wanted to figure out what happened so I walked down. The driveway crossed the cul de sac and tried to meet some of the neighbors I I'm with the New York Times on Julian Barnes. I'm doing some reporting about the neighbor okay I don't know if you saw the press reports or whatnot but broke out in my paper and CNN yesterday about the informant who told about mentally and Russian media Russian government is reporting. It is your neighbor and what did they know. Well you know when you're reporting about somebody. In talking to neighbors the classic journalistic joke was was they were very quiet a new neighbors we hadn't even met him. The main to get over didn't get over and of course stereotypically and you know we heard they were very quiet but one of the neighbors describe were shooting off fireworks crap. There's a neighbor of the wife and the kids sitting on the porch out over inviting them over for the fourth of July fireworks. I went over and vitamin she. She said he say she didn't speak English. So your husband came out and said that they would just watched from the steps. The interactions were a little bit few and far between that was the only interaction with him other than just go even when we passed on the street and walking the dog Rodway Volney Lar- I did stop and his wife was walking the dog and I doc said hi how you doing. She just she out this student. She said fine fine fine as a guy like the house in the neighborhood and she's like fine fine fine fine. That was the only time I've ever talked to eat it but you know the details they did provide really seemed seemed to confirm that. This was our guy that this was the spot is a Russian couple. In the I remember to a taller boy they may even carry the the family moved in June of twenty eighteen. They were vague about where they came from. Just saying they had meaning from northern Virginia it was at least one little kid and then the other was of US junior high school. The husband was friendly but spoken. What everyone knew was a heavy Russian accent. He was a diplomat for many years. So I presume he's English was pretty good was that your accent and one of the neighbors told me that they had been whisked away the night before. A van came up loaded them up and took them to a location unknown. Did these numbers eight we're talking to you seem shocked by this seeming spy in their midst you know oddly. They didn't a little bit spy novelist. It's how the world works so. I mean you know we do it to them. They do to us. One person was like we live near Washington. There are a lot of spies around here. It's it's government so you know it's it's every government and they seem to very quickly process that this neighborhood. They didn't know very well that he had been a spy. A and one of the neighbors was pretty outspoken and turned out to be pretty proud of his neighbor and said my only concern is our side favors. This guy was doing important work for America and you know he had really risk his own life to do good for our country so we didn't know our neighbor was a spy five but now that we know he was a spy for us for the good guys rah-rah exactly which is a pretty quick mental somersault to do. I think but yeah that's what happened. They quickly thought all right. He's on our side. Let's rally around the flag for them. so then what happens after a few hours the postman drives lives up and he's immediately mobbed by six reporters and then. I just look at that scene and I think the postman doesn't know anything this is over so I got back into my car and I headed back to the New York Times Washington bureau to keep reporting and presumably they drop off your car to go at its cargo place. You can just leave them anywhere in the District of Columbia.

"So you have that statutory baseline for a lot of these protections, a really critical, one for us is one of those executive orders executive order, twelve triple three executive order twelve three really defines the role of each of the intelligence community elements. Right it, what's the fines, the CIA and the FBI the FBI and also determines, what scope is going to be for each of those agencies and really critical to my work says that if there's if you're an agency as the CIA does that is going to in any way collect or retain or share where we would often uses disseminate Americans information. US person information is the technical term you have to have a set. Of rules that are approved by your director, and by the attorney general, so we referred to these to the as the Torney general guidelines is a horrible roles that were kind of reverse the pirates of the Caribbean. They are not guidelines. They are in fact rules, but they are referred to as attorney general guidelines, and they govern those things about that collection. The retention the dissemination of the US person information, so we very substantially revised ours. Pretty recently, we released those in the past two years. And we did a couple of things the first thing is actually the release. Right. So we had had these rules since the eighties before we had once released them under a foia. I'm going to say somewhat evill redacted, and that, that was our only kind of public communication about those. So one of the things that we want to do in very much did with our US person rules as we revamp them, we rewrote them and we did. So in a way where we can. Did release them entirely to the public. So these rules that govern how we collect information how we retain it. How we disseminate, it are entirely unclassified were released by the there on our website right now and everything in tired of the rules. It isn't these rules, plus a classified appendix. Right. You're looking at the whole rule set that was very revolutionary for us, and it really actually required us to rewrite the rules from the ground up to be able to do that. But we thought it was critically important that we'd be able to communicate with folks about that. I'll explain a bit about why later, we thought that was important, but that wasn't the only reason that we realized rules. The reason we revise rules is because our operational environment had fundamentally changed. We had a great set of rules if you're going to get a sheaf of papers in some darkened alley about military intelligence, and you could look through them and figure out, what was the foreign intelligence information would send that back to Washington. And if there was Americans information that was irrelevant. It was just left on the cutting room floor right Ben, and I don't want to suggest that we don't still do that, right. We do, and we still have rules that allow us to really just get rid of Americans information, right there on the front ends, if it's irrelevant share it, if it is relevant. That is something that we absolutely do the change in the operational environment is the change for all of us, right? We are living in a digital space. So if you think about that rule set and then try to apply it to a different scenario. Let's say you have a foreign adversaries foreign hacker. And the CIA is able to obtain in an authorized way, the hard drive of that foreign adversaries hacking hacking ride their hard drive. So that's going to be gigabytes gigabytes of information, and it's going to have lots of information about the hacker in how they did what they did. It's also most likely going to have the fruits of some of that hacking, right? If they are targeting Americans, there's going to be some pretty sensitive person information on there, potentially. So what? Do you do with that, right? At some level, you need to acquire that information you need to know what was compromised.

"How hold so i see this from very complicated perk so i i see your argument but then i imagine some host of fox and friends being named cit director and you have this compliance senate pushing them through in like i don't know i wonder if we wouldn't benefit from someone that at least is professional i don't know i think i would vote against her because of the legacy of torture and because of what an enormous stain it was on our history but at the very least i see it as being really complicated torture and then and then destroying of the evidence and the tapes as well time i hear everything you're saying and you're saying okay well can we make an argument that somehow she might have evolved that like that okay there was one moment in time where you might have done something that you do you have regret over i don't know have you involved in any way will the record doesn't suggest that whatsoever you know three or four years later you're actively trying to hunt down the tapes and destroy them you send the cable saying to people in thailand destroy all those ninety two tapes you got over there of all the evidence she's lobbying the cia general counsel john rizzo to can we please destroy these things and then years later when the senate is producing a torture report she amongst many cia staffer lobbying the white house lobbying dennis mcdonough directly and saying please for the love of god do not let our names be known we cannot be outed in this manner i see all that conduct as you learned nothing you were not held accountable you've just been essentially rewarded i would argue it's even worse than that to argue it's worse because institution the cia is refusing to declassify information to this day at this moment about her record about where she worked.

"Final cia director john brennan who also worked at the cia during that period as a role called deputy executive director i worked john the white house i talked with him about these issues a lot he said he had knowledge of harsh interrogation tactics being used than verbally opposed them at the time but wasn't in a job where he could stop them from happening right he wasn't like a seat at the table in a policy role you also later then helped ban the practice but i know that the aclu strongly opposed john's nomination at that time and i raise him because i'm curious where you think we should draw the lines in terms of who was permanently tainted by their association with the cia at that time is it anyone who worked on these programs is it just folks who did the interrogating oversaw is at ci leadership i mean how do you think we should think about you know accountability when it comes to these torture program i think that there needs to be a level of accounting for your own self in the sense that he we need to make clear what you believe in what you don't believe in and i can understand john brennan's argument that okay well i didn't have a direct role so i should be tainted by it and then i i would argue that then there's an incumbent responsibility on himself to condemn that which he was not part of and to say that it will not occur again i i hear you on that as he came into office he did help take actions that made clear that torture should happen on our watch i think as i look at gina hassle she's a very very different category than john brennan she was the person who had policy control who had directional control over this and i guess to your you know dear from john brennan who i who i think has a remarkable career and government service and as somebody you know better than i serious and a professional person i think there's many who have relationships with gina hassle in that because of those relationships feel compromised in a moral way out argue that they are willing to look pal.
