Spread the love


STEVE: ALICE BEING IN OUR GUEST WHO SERVED TEN TOURS IN AFGHANISTAN AND HAS BEEN SO INFORMATIVE ABOUT THE WHOLE SITUATION. GREAT TO SEE YOU AGAIN. IT IS AN ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHING STORY WE HAVE SEEN IN THE “WASHINGTON POST” TODAY. THAT OUR MILITARY SO THEN IN DIRECT TALKS FROM THE TALIBAN IN DOHA, WE WERE OFFERED THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTROL ALL OF KABUL AND THE AIRPORT AND WE SAID NO.

IT’S OKAY.

YOU CONTROL THE CITY. WE WILL KEEP THE AIRPORT. WHAT IS GOING ON AT THE SENIOR LEVELS OF OUR MILITARY? >> I WILL TELL YOU WHAT IS GOING ON. TOTALLY COMPLETE AND UTTER INCOMPETENCE.

IT REMINDS ME OF DECEMBER 8, 2001, AND KANDAHAR OFFERED US A SMALL PORTION OF THE KANDAHAR CITY AND HE WOULD RETAIN THE ARREST. AND WE SAID NO IT IS YOUR UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER AND WE EXPECT YOU TO BE AT THIS LOCATION TO RENDER IT TO KARZAI AND IF YOU ARE NOT THERE WE WILL FIND YOU AND HANDLE IT A DIFFERENT WAY. HE WAS THERE AND SURRENDERED. KARZAI TOOK KANDAHAR AND THE REST IS HISTORY.

WE CANNOT GET CLOSE TO THE AIRFIELD WE WOULD HAVE THE 13 DEATHS OR KABUL, CITY THAT WAS THRIVING NOW AS AN UTTER CESSPOOL HUMANITARIAN PROPORTIONS IT WAS ACTUALLY UNCONSCIONABLE IF THAT WAS OFFERED AND THE DECISION WAS NOT TO ACCEPT THAT, THEN NOT ONLY INCOMPETENCE THAT ACTUALLY BAD MILITARY JUDGMENT.

STEVE: TURNING TO THE BORDER SITUATION. TO MAKE SURE WE GET ALL ALLIES OUT. THERE IS NO SHORT. AND THEN WE HAVE TO EXTEND IT AND THEN ANOTHER 6000 TROOPS THEN WE TAKE THE REGIONAL AIRFIELDS. THAT OBVIOUSLY WILL NOT HAPPEN.

BIDEN IS STICKING TO THE AIR PLAN – – THE PLAN DESPITE THAT. AND LEON PANETTA SAID WE HAVE TO GO BACK AND AT SOME POINT BECAUSE OF THE COMPLETE MASS THAT HAS BEEN MADE. TALKING ABOUT TERRORISM, OF COURSE. SO DESPITE WHAT BIDEN SAYS WE WILL HAVE TO GO BACK IN? >> ABSOLUTELY.

NOT ONLY AFGHANISTAN WILL REQUIRE US BECAUSE OF THE EXPANSION OF ISIS AND AL QAEDA AND JUST THE OPPORTUNITY OF THE UNGOVERNED SPACES LIKE WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN NORTH AFRICA AND ALL OF THE PLACES THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF UNGOVERNED SPACES, WE WILL HAVE TO GO BACK IN. SO LET’S EXTEND THE DEADLINE, GET ALL AMERICANS OUT, AND ONCE WE DO THAT, GO IN AND DESTROY THE TALIBAN AND AL QAEDA AND ISIS AND THEN WE CLAIM OUR CREDIBILITY IN THE WORLD.

WHAT DID IT TAKE? A LIEUTENANT COLONEL IN THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS TO SOUND OFF ON THE INCOMPETENCE. THEY FIRED HIM.

THAT’S A THEY DO TO PEOPLE THAT GIVE THEM THE RIGHT INFORMATION AND DECISIONS, THEY GET RID OF THEM. STEVE: EXACTLY. I JUST WANT TO SAY AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR YOUR CLARITY WITH ALL OF THIS AND THE STRENGTHEN THE CONVICTION. THIS IS WHAT WE EXPECT FROM OUR MILITARY. OF WHAT YOU HAVE OUTLINED.
