tv The 11th Hour With Brian Williams MSNBC September 28, 2021 11:00pm-12:00am PDT
oath to testify about that chaotic and ultimately deadly exit just last month. early on in the nearly six hours of testimony the descended armed services committee, joint chief of staff chairman. general mark milley and send calm genel frank mckenzie acknowledge that they previously urged biden not to pull out all american troops. and secretary of the students austin said the white house was aware of their concerns. >> i've recommended that we maintain 2000 and 500 troops in afghanistan, and i also recommended earlier in the fall of 2020 that we will maintain 4000 at that time. i also have a view that the withdrawal of those forces would lead inevitably to the collapse of an afghan military forces, and eventually the afghan government. >> general milley i assume that you agree withhat in terms of the recommendaon of 2500? >> and do you agree with tt? . my assessmentoss back, the fa of 20 and rain constent throughout, we
ould keep a steady state of 2500, and it could bounce up to 3500, maybe something like that. in order to move towards a negotiated gated solution. >> i'm confident the president heard all of the recommendation. i listen to him very thoughtful. >> they're very input was received by the president, and considered by the president for sure. >> the problem today was that testimony by those three gentlemen, appeared to contradict what the president told georgetephanopoulos of abc news back on august 19th. >> so no one told your military advisers, no, we should just keep 2500 troops, it's been a stable situation for the last years, we should do, that we should continue to do that? >> no no one said that, to me not that i can recall. >> and as anticipated this afternoon the white house responded to mounting questions about what the president indeed was told. >> there was a range of viewpoints as evidence by the testimonies today that were presented to the president.
that were presented to the national security team. the welcome advice ultimately it's up to the commander-in-chief to make a decision. he made a decision to end a 20-year war. >> during today senate hearing the commanders also offered their assessment of the rapid research of the taliban. >> we all watched with alarm the images of afghans rushing the runway, in our aircraft. we all remember the scenes of confusion outside the airport. but within 48 hours our troops restored order. they in our commanders exceeded all expectations. they evacuated more than 124,00 >> it was a logistical six success, but a strategic failure. >> we absolutely failed the rapid 11 day collapse of the afghan military and the collapse of their government. >> we helped build a state, mister chairman, but we cannot help forge a nation. >> genel milley added that had u.s. forces not left by the august 31 deadline war with the
taliban would've been inevitable. >> milley also took time during his opening remarks to address reports about his actions during the final months of the trump presidency, which were of course detailed in this new book peril by bob woodward, and robert costa. the general recounted the frantic phone call with house speaker nancy pelosi two days after the january 6th capitol riot. he defended those calls to a chinese military leader, his counterpart. as being prompted by intelligence indicating beijing's concerned about a possible u.s. strike. >> i know i am rtain, at president trump did not intend to attack the chinese. andt was my directed responsibility by the secretary to convey that intent to the chinese. my task at that time was to de-escalate my message again was consistent. stay calm,steady, an de-escalate. we are not going to attack you.
shortly after my call ended with generally, ipersonally formed both secretary of state pompeo, and white house chief of staff meadows, -- spear of t houseelosi called me to inquire about the presidents abili to launch nuclear weapons. i exained to her that the president is the sole nuclear launch authority, and he doesn't launch them alone. and that i am not qualified determine the mental health of the president of the united states. at no time was i attempting to chge or influence the press, insert authority, or insert myself in the chain of command. >> on the same topic of president trump mental's health, trump's own former press secretary with stephanie griffin, describes quot a temper besides othethings on her new memoir. new york timereports that
grisham. with >> trump's handlers designated an unarmed white house official known as the music man, to play him's favorite show tunes including mories from cats to pull him from the brink of rage well tonight the current president who tends to be more of a dog guy is ting to keep legislation based onis domestic agenda from falling apart. biden has canceled a trip to chicago tomorrow so he can stay in washington and continue negotiations with lawmakers in s own party. earlietoday he sat down with senator,tay with us joe manchin and christian kyrsten sinema whosay at the train a lftrillion dollar bent to connect is too expensive for them meanwhile speaker pelosi says that she plans to hold the vote thursd on the trillion dollar infrasuctureill. even though the liberal members of h - caucus are threatening to vote against it democrats are also racing to fund the government so idoesn't shut wnthursday at midnight
wee also trying tkeep t u.s.fromoing io defaul treasury secrety janet yid toldlawmakers th the gornment will essentially run out of money on october 18th, if the federal debt limit is not racist. with all of that, let's bring in our starting line on this tuesday night eugene daniels, white house correspondent for politico and coauthor of each day's addition of the political playbook. a. b. stoddard, vernon washing and -- real clear politics. and retired barry r mccaffrey, veteran of vietnam former battlefield commander in the gulf, and a former cabinet member of the national security uncil well. good eveni and welcome to you. all eugene daniels, i'd like to believe with you. what is the latest you are hearing from the white house tonight with these two bills? aka the president's agenda up in the yr. >> what we know is that they are getting a little concerned,
right? it's kind of rerkable where we are in the process, legislation is messy. we all know. th the democratic party has to make sure everybody is happy from bernie stand there's, to joe manchin's in order to pass legislation. but for months the focus has been about helen president it is for the democrats have been united. they were on this two track process and everyone had agreed, and then the wl started to fall off, and i think that the white house, a lot of the people in the white house were surprised by how quickly have. been saying that it had to have a system tragic pause, and now nancpelosihe speaker of the use essentially decoupling the two bills and taken the two ack almost off the table. so so much of that has changed, and so now as you see the president canceling that trip, they are working on tting a lot more involved. they have talked about over and over again, the calls that the president has made, they call them engagements. but we heard on playbook from folks on the hill, that the thing about the president to be
more involved. they wanted to put in thumb on the scale more, and be very clear more iortantly, when we want to see these votes. how high he wants these bills to. be and i think that is something that people on the hill have beensking for. so something that democrats have to start to shift on is that they're hoping is going to help is less focus on the number,? right you know progressives that have negotiating and concentrating on the policies. what is going to be in. it instead of the top line numbers. because that is the thing that people think about when they think about this reconciliation bill. the 3.5 trillion llars, which sounds like a lot of money, because it is. and now they're working on trying to figure out how to continue to sell what is in the actual bill. and not so much that top by number. think they are hoping that that is going to work. because what we've seen in polling, is th the actual policies in the reconciliation bill are actually really popular. >> we a. b. stoddard, comedy fans of anotr arab will remember and the kaufman, a the wrestling match.
why am i mentioning? that because it was performance art. so well done it left people both bewildered and tipping their hats. y do i mention all of it? because of this bid today. with a straight face from mitch mcconnell. >> so look it's time for democratic colleagues to stop dragging their heels. and get moving. >> a. b. stoddard so the democrats are dragging their heels, what's going on here? we >> will brian, as eugene laid out there are all these divisions where progressives are trying to blame senators manchin and kyrsten sinema we're blowing this up in the late hour. not being specific and caroling the nation credit and economy, and everything else. whereas all along two - things referred the democrat. they believe joe manchin and they believe mitch mcconnell
that he was going to have a problem with this. he would vote to proceed but he was never going to prove something this big. and mitch mcconnell made it clear that he is going to make its own rules, he doesn't care if this is about paying for debt, securing debt that was ranked up during the years that mitch mcconnell supported or not. he essentially is the minority leader, and saying that if you hold the cards and you hold the power than it is on you to do this. so democrats are knowing that all along they are going to do at this ceiling increase on their own, what they are trying to do is make a point. so there's a lot of performance as you highlighted where they're going to try and make it look bad that republicans are imperiling the nation's economy and bring us to the brink of default. even though they've known all along, and mitch mcconnell is deadly serious that he plays on his own set of rules and he really doesn't care about being
hypocritical about one cycle or one administration to the next. they really are wanting to put on a show where they say republicans are going to take us over a cliff and it's so terrible and have a lot of people playing clips of janet on television over and over again about the perils of this risk. but they know how this ends. and so they're doing their own performance. they also know how the infrastructure fight ends, which is that they've never had the math to do a bernie sanders wants to do. and in the end joe manchin and kyrsten sinema will prevail. and they will not waste a bill that 19 republicans have supported. they will not tanking. that will get past because they have to, it's essential. and then they will figure out the social welfare programs with the -- but they are not going to take us into the fold and they are not going to change joe biden's infrastructure bill and the
rest of these programs. >> bless you for that explanation. we may hold you to it. barry r mccaffrey, we get to come to you and what did you make of the disconnect on display during the testimony today from the advice that these three military men gave the president the advice that the president either says he did not receive, or did not taken. and then we concentrating on the wrong subject? would a 2500 troop contingent have just remain there for five or ten years with at sustainable? >> well my own view is ha we stayed beyond the 31st of august, the taliban uld have reengaged on the war we would've had toreinforce, not 2500, but probably ,000 need troops. we would've kept the afghan government in our force from
collapsing. would i do believe is that it wasa legitimate political decision by president biden. and trump. wh withdraw all forces to do it in a very short term. in addition mr. trump teed up the doha agreement which essentially completely through the afghan government under the bus and would clearly result in an eventual collapse. so i don't thinthat the fact that mr. biden may have slightly miss spoke and significant, i think biden coming in e long run to make the right decision. but right now he has to live wiin a hoific aftermath of a country gog back intoaos, and brutality. that is for sure, we eugene daniels plunge back into white hous politics. is it fair to say the white house has been caught off guard by the level and degree of infighting blue on blue among
democrats? >> i think so. i think that the thing that they expected was one. i think joe manchin has continued to be kind of a thorn in everyone side. i think he actually enjoys being that foil to the administration. to being a foiled to the amount of money that congress wants to spend. not that it does not something that he truly immediately, but he does enjoy that. and it's also important to remember that we talk about it a lot on this air that, joe manchin is always a boxy for another moderate democrats. and i think this white house often forgets that. just because it's just joe manchin that they know that is going to be upset, or doesn't want to spend this much money. it is also we sinema, and there are others that are quiet and allow the two moderate senators to take a lot of the key. so i think they were caught off guard. i think it's something that they had leaned on as president
biden's ability to twist arms to control -- because all of his decades of work on the hill and at this point it's not clear how much that has worked and as i said before there are people on the hill that are saying i think i should've got in a call considering how involved i am in this process. and i have been received one. not just that limber of the staff, that the white house and committee members of the staff at their office, but they are talking about high level conversations. those are the questions that are still raised about president biden's involvement, and obviously he's going to be doing a lot more of that here tomorrow. we a.b., the optics aren't great, the president, whose job is to sell everything to the american people is busy putting out fires in his own party. >> yeah. but as i pointed out before, this math was there from day one. they d not control -- they don't have a majority in the senate, they control the chamber. and they preside over iin a
50/50 senate, where they break ties on non-filibuster votes, with the tie breaking vote of the vicepresident. so they barely control the senate and they have a foresee margin in the use. they have known this all along. manchin has made clear through and through. first it was a pause, then ination, he continues t be on specific about his needs. this is not new to the white house. i believe nancy pelosi that knew it would come down to cutting loose a bipartisan bill ready to be signed into law, populawith 70% of americans. but she could not rub the progressives noses in it and start talking about putting it first and getting it over the finish lineithout shooting them. so she stuck to the two track promise as long as she could, because she broke it and that is the political reality. >> eugene, you get the last
word. i know you are an admirer of general milley's badge on his chest. shows the wider world he does not scare easily. do you think he did a good job of defending his actions, after january 6th, in explaining his phone calls and motives? >> brian, i've been touched by the senate many times over the years. and they are frequently character assassination hearings. this was relatively civil given the acrimony involved ithe withdrawal from afghanistan. i thought mark milley made a straightforward, completely honest presentation. that explain the situation that happened. did not delve into the craziness of trump's final days. and it was received, probably, with, well, we have nothing
else to say. we are fortunate we have this patriotic, talented combat veteran in this position in the last months of the trump administration. >> a proper final word to end this segment, with our thanks to our starting line, a. b. stoddard, eugene daniels and. we've heard that getting the vaccine to young kids could be the thing that gets the pandemic under control. is that finally about to happen? we will talk timeline here tonight coming up. and later, if i told you silvio dante's our guest, and you know who that is, that makes you are kind of you are. tonight we are joined by music lesson, the one and only stevie van zandt, he to talk about his new memoir out today. the 11th hour just getting underway on this tuesday evening. evening. it's a sunny day. nah, a stormy day.

front today for younger children specifically. pfizer has headed its data to the fda on their vaccine for kids aged 5 to 11, i dose they say is safe and effective. fda is expected to take at least several weeks to analyze it. back with us is doctor irwin redlener, founding director of columbia's national center for disaster preparedness. also professor of pediatrics at albert einstein college of medicine. so doctor, would else should we know about the data on this pfizer shot for 5 to 11 year olds, when can we expect it to start going into small arms? >> hi brn. the data has been submied by visor. and at data shows that, according to pfizer, that that data is safe and effective for children and5 to 11 your age range. furthermore, it shows that they
probably do not needs hiatus as we are giving to adults. they wilprobably get something like one half the dose, which wi give them excellent immunity. so it seems that the initial data shows that bryant, and i think we will t to see that happen in the next couple of weeks. >> let's talk about the new figures out today, as published by the new york times, which i'm not smart enough to process. new cases are down 33%. a full third. dehs are up 12%. what does that mean f us going forward and going into winter? >> well, i guess all of us are concerned, brian, that the possibility of overwhelming our hospitals once again, although cases are dropping, if we are seeing the big elevations, a number of people admitted to the hospital, and not surviving, that is a real concern. in fact, we have some ominous possibilities of reaching new landmarks, with covid
fatalities in the u.s., that are coming up. includin, reaching 700,000 deaths by the end of the weekend, brian. >> all the landmarks have been tragic alo the way, especially the ones can predict and anticipates. what we are reading about this new pill asn al treatment for the virus, at some point in the futu. is it okay to get our hopes up for such a micine? and what can you tell us about this? >> i think so. i am thinking uncharacteristically opmistically about this piece, because we ow we have anti viral limits, including something called tamiflu, that work very well, that many of us have tak for influenza. so we have several big manufacturers, including pfizer and merck, that are working on such a pale. and it would work like this,
you are not feeling well, you go to the doctor, you t tested for covid, and the doctor will write you a prescription. and that prescription you start taking right away. and if luck holds, we will see a pill that actually stopped the covid virus dead in its tracks. and that is potentially one piece of really good game changing news, brian, that we are looking at in the near term. in the next couple of months. >> we like game-changers around here. we will hold you to that. doctor irwin redlener has been our guest, taking our questions. always a pleasure, doctor, thank you for being with us. coming up for us, the man who does it all, is here to talk about his new memoir today. his indelible mark on television and his great american life. american life. add olay retinol24 to your nighttime skincare routine.

tony soprano in the sopranos. about music he writes this quote >> the beetle showed us a new world, the rolling stones inviting us. in it was the spark that would ignite a new way of thinking for. me a world without rules without limitations. the beatles stones exact a would change everything. my religion had gone from catholic to baptist to rock and roll pagan. society has never recovered and neither have i. we >> are so pleased to welcome my friend stevie van zandt, now author of the new memoir which again is called unrequited effectually shuns. it is now available. what a treat and a pleasure to have you on. i have now read it twice cover to cover and what emerges is a life spent reaching to brass rings that you don't get. and we understand that that's a kind of the ceases, a theme in the lling, and in the writing. and yet the reader, and i think the author if i' right by the
end of the story you realize, you came down with a lot of gold rings along theway. >> s, i think going back and reliving it really was helpful, i must say. because i don't really think about the past very often. and i really went back and tried to be in those moments. and yes, you realize that while everyone has a bit of disappointment in their lives, and a bit of frustration it's what you do with that that matters, you know. and i don't want to sound in any way ungrateful about my amazing success with the band or with the sopranos, really hammer, or even sun city which was a big success. but the personal part of my work that has not reached an audience, it can sometimes be a
little bit frustrating. and i think that's probably common for anyone that goes through life who eventually has some disappointments. and that's not the point. the point ishat you do after that. what hapns after the disappointment? what do you do with it. >> let's run through some of the gold rings, husband of maureen, father to 80 the dog importantly. your years with bruce and the street band. you made such a huge contribution to the dismantling of apartheid the freeing of mandela through sin city in your activism, first dedicated music channel on sirius xm, you were the guy first streaming series ever on netflix. when they were just mailing out cdc and paper on the loaves tour houses. and you are a founding father, let's not forget of a sub genre of rock and roll with, the jersey shore's town instantly recognizable of that-less.
what are you proudest of? >> well i think the both of them are going to live beyond me, both of them are going to live beyond the country. i think they're both extremely important formats, which include the best of the old and the best of the new. we have introduced over 1000 new bans in addition to playing all the cool stuff from 1951 and on. all 70 years of rock and soul. i think i'm also very proud of what we did in south africa, with the four of us, the four musketeers, me danny schachter, arthur baker, and 50 artists and including the united nations, it was a big movement and it wasn't as big in america at the. time we kind of lit the fuse for that one. and i think my music history
curriculum is probably going to be my most important contribution. i think that it will also be important and completely revolutionize the education system by integrating the arts into every single discipline. not just as an extra class or after school class. but integrating the arts literally into every single discipline, turning stem, science technology, matt, it's a steam in adding the arts into the middle of that. and i think that will change the way kids learn if we can get that distributed. and they're doing quite well with. that >> i hope people who read the book concentrate on that portion, 40,000 teachers have signed up across the country and this has been a huge passion of stevens. also reading the book what occurs to me is that you have, i don't think i'm missing anyone, you have met all of your heroes. what has that been like? and have you ever been disappointed?
>> [laughs] i had a ve unpleasant experience early on life which i talk about in the books. regarding an autograph which i wasn't even interested in. my friends talked me into. i never since then, i have never wanted to meet one of my heroes. i try to avoid my heroes as much as i can. and ironically i end up recording and producing 50 of them on the sensitive records. and meeting pretty much as you said, pretty much meeting all my heroes slowly through the years. but i try to avoid it because, you know, if they turn out to be unpleasant in any way it's going to really affect my ability to enjoy the music. so i try to avoid that stuff if i can. >> i'll tiptoe up to this next topic by noting that political activism has been a huge part of your life. i am tempted knowing something about your politics to ask you, what you make of the democrats
and how they are living with the power they have been having, they've been handed. i'm also tempted to ask you, have there ever been a time that you have been more pessimistic about your country? anyone who follows you on social media would know this about you. >> i have to admit, it is a little depressing at the moment. a little frustrating. i don't know how youdo this every night brian. keeping yoself subtle humor intact. and believe me you really do help. i'm rooting for joe biden every single day. i really am. i have just got this tolerable feeling, and i've had this for a long time that we are in a war that only one side is fighting in. and i have been feeling that for decades. and it's really coming to
very serious place now. where we might lose our democracy because of it. and i am just not happy with what's going on. i'm not happy with our attorney general. i would have preferred malcolm nance to be attorney general we don't really need the attorney part, but we do need a general. we need -- i just keep asking where the tough good guys? and i just can't find them bryan. and we need them, we needhem now, we need the general paton 's. i'll take teddy roosevelt, give me somebody. give me someone who's got a little courage and a little strength and realizes that we are in a war. andwe just don't seem to have the people with the right frame of mind, and as i say, i keep rooting for joe. but you know the benedict arnold twins are not helping
matters. and i hope they come around, i don't know, i don't wanna see mention on tv ever again. i'm sick of his face. and i don't understand, i mean you tell me, there was a few republicans that voted for impeachment, right? on both sides. in the house. i wonr if they can be converted. could maybe convert to be democrats. is that legal? you would know better than me. >> i think you need to get on amtrak and go down to washington. i'm going to nicely avoid that question by holding up this book, telling you and our audience that we are going to fit in a break, and we are goingto continue our discussion on the other side. we are going to talk about some characters from new jersey folks may know pretty well.
let me know the other night that he's been playing both sides of the fence with new york. >> burt? >> measures were taken. >> i never saw myself as that kind of guy. i'm more behind the scenes. advice, strategy. >> so chair me up. i >> just when i thought i was out, they pulled me back in. >> some great stuff there, some great stuff. silvio, with steve's real life maureen. silvio doing pochettino, worlds colliding, stevie van zandt remains with us. stephen, do i have this right, you are not an actor. david chased cold calls you and says, we are putting together this series on hbo about the mob. you read through the part of tony soprano, both sides think better of it, you developed the
character of the consigliere, even the name silvio dante. do i have that about right? >> yes, it sounds ridiculous, but yes. you gotit right. [laughs] yeah. he had been in tv a long time. this was going to be, i think, his last tv show. he wanted to start making movies. david chase was talking about. he wanted new faces, he wanted to break all the rules. and he did break all the rules. he did not kw he would be revolutionizing television when doing so. but he broke all the rules. and after hbo said, what are you, crazy? we are not going to cast the guy who never acted before as the lead, cooler heads prevail and he said, what do you want to do? and now that i think about it, i feel guilty about it, taking an actress job, i know they have to go through, my wife is a real actor, goes to classes
all the time, off broadway. and they said, okay, you are not going to take another actors job, we will write you in a part. what do you want to do? and so i said, i have this treatment of another monster, like at the copacabana, he romanticize the mobs past and he had a 50s look. and all the five families had their tables in the club and big bands and comics and dancing girls. basically it was like a mob version of casablanca, basically. and i said, well, that sounds interesting. and he said, well, we can't afford it but we will make it a strip club. and you will run a strip club for the family. so we started there. and then, you know, i had written a bit of a biography of the guy.
saying we were best friends with tony soprano, not thinking i was 20 years older than him. since then 25 in my head all the time. enand slowly, me and jimmy actually bonded on the set. i think because he was more of a character actor and so was i. i was more of a side man. and we both did not have aspirations to be the front guy, to be the star. so we kind of bonded on that level very quickly. and i think david chase picked up on that. and slowly, by the end of the first season, i kind of had become the under boss and the consigliere, sometimes two different guys, sometimes one guy. that's an important role in a mob family that actually wasn't there. so i fill the vacuum that did not exist, really. >> yeah, i was just going to say -- >> go ahead. >> i was going to say, the current string of repeats that
hbo is airing, in praration for a release of the movie, only makes us more wistful for the series, for those days, and of course for jimmy, who is no longer with us. >> absolutely. and, you know, the prequel is great, by the way. so anyway, i just fell into that role and then realized, wait a minute, this is similar to my relationship with bruce springsteen all those years. and so suddenly, i felt very, very comfortable, and i knew with those dynamics -- you know, how that works. you are the one guy that the boss trusts. you are the only guy that doesn't want to be away from the boss. you are the only guy who can bring him bad news, because you are the only guy who does not fear the boss. and that really started to click on the set. and in the rioters mind, and in david chases mind, so he very
naturally started to incorporate that into scripts. i was very cfortable with that because i knew you had to do that. i had been doing in my whole life. you know? >> so help me out with something. you and i grew up, what's, a mile and a half apart, same town, i want to go to your high school, i will leave names out of it. my mother says, you are not going to that drugged in, that relegated me to four years of a catholic high school right near your house. so we were both raised by classic republican military veterans. similar households. but looking back, i was raised in a proper new york giants household, where there was talk of names like gifford and robust steadily. i'm curious, steve, what would happen to you, why do you root for the eagles? we in giants nation invite you to come over and invite you to join us in embracing the sock.
>> [laughs] first of all, i have a valid excuse, in that my father was a big follower of norm than brock him. you can sense the van thing in common, the dutchman? >> yeah. >> what's team which he with, brian? >> okay, that was a long time ago. so is concrete shirley. the giants lose more often now. >> [laughs] [inaudible] >> steve, i've got to go. i'm going to save you from traveling. eagles nation be proud that you have stevie van zandt living and dying -- it was a rough weekend for my friend steve. the pride of our hometown of middle town new jersey, stevie van zandt has been our guest tonight, with our thanks of course, again, the book is right here. it's called unrequited infatuations,a memoir.
