7:31 am
mayers are getting creative and how to curtail, especially in the cities who are choosing to reduce law enforcement budgets as well . we will tell you about one city who has decided that while crime can pay their, hoping the city can pay more over you this unorthodox approach and the chances of it actually working. i'm going to use these stories and more on today's news right here on our t america, let's get started. ah, well, the taliban is announcing a top leadership positions filling in post with veterans of the group who oversaw the 20 year fight against the united states. and many of the names involved are very familiar to the u. s. government ortiz, john had a, takes a closer look lead the new taliban government. pretty much same as the old taliban
7:32 am
government. hardliners and heavy weights who oversaw the fight against the united states in afghan. stan, some with ties to al qaeda are now in key leadership positions in the countries new caretaker government, 3 men stand out in particular in turn prime minister amolla mohammed has san kuhn considered a terrorist by the u. n. e u and u. k. and has been sanctioned by the un security council deputy prime minister moolah dog connie bars are a taliban founder and leader who reportedly met with c i a director william burns in august to discuss the u. s. is withdraw from afghanistan. molar you called the minister of defense and some of the late taliban founder mohammed omar whose refusal to hand over osama bin line. and after the attacks on $911.00 led to the us invasion of afghanistan. and sir, as you dean how connie acting interior minister, who's on the f. b i's most wanted list with a $10000000.00 bounty. on his head as head of the ha connie network,
7:33 am
a us designated tara group considered one of the most dangerous and violent in afghanistan. his uncle caliah has a $5000000.00 bounty on his head for his ties to al qaeda. he's now acting minister for refugees, for other men appointed to senior positions, were detained that guantanamo bay, and released as part of a prisoner swap for sergeant bo birdsall, in 2014, including neural la norry, acting ministers of borders and tribal affairs, and up to the high class seek acting intelligence minister, the list of taliban veterans goes on, including those who fought against both the united states and russia. but a taliban spokesman said the group is willing to work with any country that wants to help with afghanistan reconstruction. the only country the taliban said it is not willing to work with. israel was driving to this concerning new government and join me now for the 360 view is retired us army ranger, robin bureau and editorial writer and journalist jennifer massey. thank you so much
7:34 am
for joining me. camp. thank you jennifer. i want to start with you on this. you know, 2014 to think press. obama was a right and making the prisoner exchange deal. i mean, these are obviously 4 very important figures and the enemy that we were fighting exchange for one soldier who in fact improvement deserted his unit. yeah, i mean, anyone in 2014 was screaming. this is a bad idea. you know, the, the intel community and the u. s. military. he did not listen to meeting. obama did not listen to. and now we know our illustrious bo burned all was, you know, court martialed and guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. now he is trying to expunge his record from being dishonorably discharged. like people don't know his name already go metro obama for one second. it's arguably that he is arguably the he broke the law by making this decision before presenting congress with that. well, and that's a question, a lot of us, you know,
7:35 am
when i was happier time, or there was a couple people who were very upset over this robin. you think president obama realized how important these taliban soldiers were that he was exchanging? and if he didn't, why was he not told? he knew president obama knew full well how important these people were. and it's to the taliban and the taliban. i've got to disclose here some things. i in my capacity as the u. s. army ranger, i had a hand in this situation with both our goal, so i'm intimately familiar with this. there's a lot, but i can't disclose about this, but i am i, i am very, very familiar with this. i have great issue with it both our goal just earning his unit, of course, but of course the united states government was going to spare no expense trying to get one of our soldiers home, even though he did deserve his unit and was acting as a lone wolf with the taliban. we couldn't leave our guy over there. it's in the breed of every soldier,
7:36 am
every ranger. we're not going to leave anybody behind the bits fighting for us, even if they deserted us. but what it took to get there, scottie makes my sole hurt and fringe, which i think is a lot of the reason why the debate is happening over the last month of how we withdrew different robin on this issue. i do have to ask you, what is the difference between 2014 and having such a commitment that we will do whatever it takes, including giving for terrorist right back to the people we're fighting, as well as others that we release to get, get mo, compared to now currently where we left a whole group left hundreds, not only soldiers, but americans behind what had changed in how the military and how the united states government regard to those left in these types of situations. yes, to be clear, we didn't leave any soldiers behind. those are now home. i have footprints that were working on the evacuation. i interviewed one for my podcast just last week at w. w, w dot american discourse dot com. there's
7:37 am
a lot of information there. the people that are there, and then of course the state department is telling us that it's between 100 to 200 people. and some of these people were dual citizens, the citizens of afghanistan, some of them have family members there. i still think there's more to the story than we're necessarily getting it from the state department. i know that multiple attempts have been made to tell these people to get out and try and get them out. but if their dual citizens and their citizens of a canister and also and will not leave, i'm not so sure what we can do to get them out. i'm just concerned that we're not getting the full story here and that unfortunately it's something that has happened in history. hence why you probably have that fear. you know, jennifer, that being said this debate regarding giving prisoners i get a timely trial has been going on and i think it's real interesting. the timing. even those that were involved in 91120 years ago this week. granted cobra delighted a year are finally getting their days in court. however, does the fact that prisoners that we released or change our were highly involved in
7:38 am
the taliban after they left. that kind of justification for keeping these prisoners locked up rather than releasing them back into the battlefield, where we known in the past several of them went back to you to bite us soldiers. scotty, islamic extremism is a hell of a drug. you have to keep them locked up. they will always return to the battlefield even though obama said in 2014, he assured us that they would not return to the battlefield. it's actually not true . by 2018. the taliban 5 is used to call them held prominent positions in the exiled taliban. that was in guitar. so they went right back to them for years they found their way back to the battlefield. in fact, the newly confirmed minister of information and culture was just an ounce for the taliban. he was just part of the talks in moscow with, with the binding representative to discuss the withdraw from, from afghanistan. well, and that's the thought that you know, there's a lot of different things going back on as robin,
7:39 am
we're talking with taliban leadership. there's also a one, a terrorist here in the u. s. so the idea this is ministration is taking this tone and doing the taliban. a very positive tone, especially now the majority of people are out. you think that's actually reasonable . kenneth talent actually work with us, considering there's some pretty personal vendettas, you know, against the u. s. for maybe i don't know, 15 years been put and get mo you think they're actually legitimately wanting to work with the u. s. color me a skeptic. scotty. i was a skeptic when our former president met with the taliban and i didn't camp david's last january of 2018. i understand doing whatever it takes to try and work on relations here and keep our people face. but i don't trust the tell them at all for their word that it's been proven time and time again that we cannot trust them. so all i can say is that i'm glad that i'm, we're learning now that our soldiers are, has demolished a lot of the appointment that was sent over there and rendered inoperable bad news
7:40 am
that we just found out. but i'm still concerned about all of the equipment that we handed the african forces that is now in the hands of the child. that is not okay, but there's really nothing we can do about that. we work training their horses so that they could defend themselves. they just surrendered to the taliban. they really didn't. they didn't really put up any fight to be honest with. i think that's the thing that our intelligence probably warned. the president that you could see from the outside there was not going to stand up despite what this person continuously said. but i think that was what even trump even said when he was an office. bad, bad judge. and i think from the top, from the last year, the ministrations staffer i before, let's go, we're talking about these refugees that are coming over. there's a lot of concern about the vetting process and even other foreign leaders have said they're worried about isis. k actually being in these and other terrorist groups are actually making good on exploring the goodwill of countries towards refugees to use to gain access to the sleeper cells in the west. are you concerned about this vetting process? we did just see this past weekend in germany,
7:41 am
and african refugee actually used a knife and went violent in an area and actually did bad damage and hurt some people. so do you think we're doing a responsibility to national security? the way that we're very nice, the refugees we're bringing in. absolutely there's, there's no way to that all down, especially how fast are doing it, even though some of them are in, you know, 3rd party countries before they come here. it's almost impossible. and they don't have papers their, their country just fell to the taliban. i don't know what kind of documents they have, but also with the state department sending out blank visas for a lot of people to fill out, you know, who is who, but also in the muslim faith, they do something called to kia, which is you can lie about anything to, to further advance, you know, mac space. so they're going to lie and they're going to scheme and they're going to get to the united states or other countries that they would like to get to in order to harm us. you cannot believe anything they say, which is unfortunate,
7:42 am
but that's where we are and there's no way of that them or believe them at the time . well, unfortunately, i feel like i've continues to be kind of in the face. all the veterans like yourself, robin, and those that were obviously victims of 911 who were focusing on this week as they continue to make moves like this. thank you so much for having a conversation. now the health care debate has not really been a priority in the united states, mainly because the government already has stepped in and i see the cost of most expenses related to the testing prevention and the treatment of covert 19. now that sounds like a small taste of what socialized healthcare would be like have are one country with socialized health care is decided they currently can't afford the bill and have announced a health and social care levy. 1.25 percent increase in the national insurance tax and the present and a separate tax on earned income, specifically for health and social care. all beginning in 2023. u. k prime minister born johnson says the funding will be used to tackle the national health care system backlog from the pandemic. but that's only at 1st and then it will roll over
7:43 am
to pay for new caps on individual contributions to social care. you actually think that tax would go away, never sort of give us a reaction and if the pandemic is going to be raising your taxes, we bringing hello hello rewards president the bridge american burn association. thanks for joining us. hillary pleasure to be back with you again. scottie ok, so chance a rick cynic said there's a backlog treatment for over 5000000 people currently in the u. k. give us this picture of what is current healthcare like the situation u. k. for entered into visuals, both in regards to cobra as well. everything else, people get sick with, right. you're right, so i'm sure that he's the charge of the extra cup. so he actually, you're right. he said there's a tremendous backlog. now if you want to get any other surgery, anything in the u. k, if you want knee surgery, for example, it's month to month a month, and in some cases it's years. there's a backlog that why? because they've run out of beds. now the only thing is i would say that's not unique to the u. k. this is across the world, so you can't just say, well it's,
7:44 am
it's just the u. k. problem because it is and, and in fact, as health care goes compared to european countries anyway, you're better off in the u. k than most other countries. it has been better wrong and don't forget the vaccination process over 90 percent of the u. k. public. what they call double jobs compared to the, the rest of the european union. so it's far more efficient than anywhere else in the, in the european union. so it's very well run and it's far more efficient. nevertheless, there is this backlog and that's why they've levied this tax boys. johnson has said he doesn't want to go into more debt in order to from the n h s, the national health service. so how to the british people, how people you can react when their government says, you know, we more money from taxing in the us. they don't take it to well, well they don't. but actually you golf poll has said that over 64 percent of the british public is in favor of this tax. why? the n h f actually in the u. k. is considered it sort of like in america, we call it pi mother and apple pie. it's very favorably looked upon because it is
7:45 am
so very well run and waiting for months for or yeah, because obviously what everybody went through the pandemic. and actually every night, at 7 o'clock in the u. k. people were going outside of the houses and they were banging their pots and pans in recognition of people that were serving and they dress. i know people in the u. s. i just tried to start something like that here because people were actually very impressed who, how the n h s. obviously went to work with serving the nation during this time. but i would say this, the, you gonna tow it very accurate. the people are very supportive, it's the tax also, even though it is a tax scotty and i know you, but if you and i are not like pro tax is only it is 1.25 percent, which is not in order. i wouldn't say that. so that's a huge tax, it is going to raise well over $12000000000.00, and that is what is needed to fund. so i think that it's a small tax, relatively also there's been no doubt this has gone through with forest johnson's government. he's not a government that has stood for taxes, he's not a government, the conservative government that has been pro this but his back benches even that was sort of somewhat opposed to this, had passed it. so i think that the british public is for it and it's gone for ok.
7:46 am
how does the business community respond? i saw there's several or step up and said this is going to cost job. yeah. you know, i think they said that, but you know what? it's gone through and i don't think it's going to break them. no, i think they say that right now, but it's not going to be a back breakout. no. okay, well then the other thing that bore strong thinking around. so this is only a tax, mainly the majority of a 50 percent going to come from 14 percent does show that there is an unequal wealth distribution in the u. k. like somewhat, what we see here in the u. s. is always going to be on even it's not, not, in fact actually what some people said is that you're handing this over to the label. get to the labor government. i don't think that you're going to see that. i think of it is 1.25 percent isn't going to break anybody. whereas as we said in the us, you know what the board business has always do. business is always pass on expenses to the consumer. that always happens. but 1.25 percent scotty isn't going to break anybody's back. and so you're not going to find anything drastic. that's going to happen. i think actually a far greater concern in the u. k. right now,
7:47 am
is the supply chain, the semiconductor issue and the closing of manufacturing plant for call manufacturing is far greater of an issue. and the labor shortage is a far greater issue. and the semi conductor issue is far greater of a problem than this 1.25 percent tax. well, there is no doubt that it health care is going to major costs. are governments across the world. is there any other countries right now? so you can already see on the rise and are going to have to follow that same protocol and raise taxes all because of the health care expenses incurred to the past year and a half. i don't know, john, germany has seen major issues through this and that also because they took a lot of immigrants in so it might follow in germany and you may see the netherlands and maybe also sweden. it was basically the countries that took a lot of immigrants in, they're probably the ones that are going to fall next. and i think that's where people have the problem with it. they're going to raise money if it's going to actually come back and help like teachers in the classroom. it says, are we, are we able to bring in other people that we can afford right now? barely on our own. i think that's a question when you will, and you get to see a lot of pressure here too. right. and that's, and that's where i think this is kind of showing right now. do you feel like that here in the us, a pandemic has helped or hurt that debate regarding, socialized,
7:48 am
possible in the future more government control of health care, socialized medicine? i mean, i mean obviously we're going to have to do something here too because you've had so the hospital beds have been hospitals across the us have been absolutely inundated with this. but the gracious pretty of all. where is a discussion about immune systems? where is the discussion about eating properly? where was the discussion about eating less junk food? and where was the discussion about taking care of yourself? instead of talking about mosque, why don't we talk about what you should eat and how you should take care of yourself? that is the problem. the government isn't going to come in and say right, less junk food. and why don't you lower your weight because it's the obese people and the people that are high risk, the people haven't taken care of themselves and the government isn't stepping in to talk about that smoking. is it doing factors of that size that got me? i knew years maybe they only talk about not doing that kind of things. right? that's all we'll get it. so we've got a team as how are thank you so much for setting light on this. when we return, can you pay out a criminal knock that a client in california town is going to try,
7:49 am
but well, it actually work will tell you after the break. ah, the war on drugs started as a way to come back. a great problem. what's the war on? it's part of the attitude of the nation, not just of north dakota, and it got to be something that you could get elected. this time, the fight against drugs took a tragic, told us that andrew was a competent short term. this is way too dangerous for him to be doing. clearly they put him in harm's way. a rural college student does interest get shot in the head and found in a river like something else to be happening. the
7:50 am
way the u. s. government funded is through the issuance of treasury bond and they pay the interest on those bonds by collecting taxes who owns most of those bonds? virtually all those bonds, the top 110th of one percent. so the government simply becomes a pastor mechanism for people to pay money from their pockets through something called taxes that are just a thickly that hides the transmission mechanism of your money through the government, into those who own these bonds in the pacific leg around the world. expedition by 1000 miles round the clock and the dead. calm miss wilson in every country close
7:51 am
by like the crew, gavin's food and water and to go to chat. louis also moved on little, i know i got everybody locked down or almost no food and no one really getting them up. so somebody stuck up in the cove. it you're living like the female of old, but in the 21st century, ah ah, u. k. government is threatening to withhold millions of pounds promised her friends in order to help confront the migrant crisis. united kingdom accuses paris not
7:52 am
pulling its weight as a record number of people continued to arrive on u. k. beaches after leaving from northern france. harrison returned call the accusation, a serious loss of trust, shot in adverse gosti has the story from london, baton and french count parts i yes. again in the middle of a war of words and it's all about the escalating crisis on the english channel. it comes as just yesterday alone, 800 people cross the english channel, one of the worlds of busiest shipping line. so today, pre capital hosted a meeting with the french interior minister off the preacher patel threatened to cut the 54000000 pounds pledge, a funding pledge to assist in the french operations over across the channel, unless small boats intercepted now that didn't go down to well with the french or
7:53 am
flora to many people, in fact quite furious across the english channel saying this is not a tool they signed up for the conditions of the funds. when you go, she did indeed with the british, and it was never on condition of specific targets. that broach would translate into a serious loss of trust in our corporation. well, it's been a bit of a tit for tat between the 2 nations for quite some time. now, the french have always said that this is a british problem and that they should be dealing with the issue out source. i. e, are the very countries in which refugees are headed towards you are particularly this heightened time. as we know, the crisis and catastrophe in afghanistan has seen some millions of people being displaced, many of which are trying to head to the united kingdom. so the french are saying it's a british problem. the british are saying it's a french problem and they should actually be trying to intercept these, but it's and turn them back to france. now campaign is here in the united kingdom.
7:54 am
they've long. * been saying the answer to all of this is neither what the french nope, are to say. but actually to try and see safer and legal passages for asylum seekers so that they don't have to risk their lives trying to cross the english channel. but the u. k. guffman says is working to target people smugglers to try and alleviate the crisis. we remain determined to fix the broken asylum system and break the business model of people smugglers who put lives at risk and welcome people through safe and legal routes. while they see a record, 13500 asylum seekers have crossed the english channel in small, but it's just a 1000 in the last 2 days. now. conservative and peace here in the united kingdom, that cooling for the home secretary to even break international law. and send all of the assign him because back to france, if they've traveled terror legally by boat. now, francais, if the u. k, does that there will be serious consequences. and then it's doing all it can to try
7:55 am
and prevent these crossings. they face in january, they've intercepted 10000 and brought them back to the french shores. despite the french authorities having to do with a wall amount of space to police on the beach is over and france. the fact is we've got 302400 kilometers of shore to monitor every day and every night. and it's quite impossible to have place offices every 100 meters because of the length of the shore cloud. here in the united kingdom, the home secretary in particular has had some rather robust rhetoric over the years, particularly aimed at asylum seekers headed to the united kingdom. in fact, free to patel has now got the reputation of the credit to bill and the immigration system for what many people would argue is particularly hostile. we have to look at the beginning of her 10 years. she said the crossings would be an infrequent phenomenon. that loftier she promised to shut off the route entirely. and this d, as she's pushing through an immigration bill making crossings,
7:56 am
a legal meaning that anybody that does head to the united kingdom by boat could be seen to go even to be jailed in fact. but no matter how hostile printed tiles, policies or comments are, it's not stopping asylum seekers headed to the united kingdom. it seems that the u . k. is still a fall safe haven either the countries that they are fleeing from. hence, this latest influx of asylum seekers here in the united kingdom, but perhaps now the home secretary should change tact, considering the numbers are not going down. any program in san francisco wants to pay a small group of people not to commit crimes. our critics call it giving cash to criminals, but other say it's a pass horse preventing can violence. our correspondent natasha suite explains for the human rights commission in san francisco is launching in pilot programs that take effect next month. well heading out money really help quite crime and gun
