Base turn to follow. 159 00:11:58,682 --> 00:12:02,016 - You got the reaction time of a foetus. - Whoa! 160 00:12:02,102 --> 00:12:04,723 - There we go. - Friendly skies. 161 00:12:04,813 --> 00:12:07,351 How can you be more afraid of clouds than bullets? 162 00:12:07,441 --> 00:12:10,110 Cos I'd rather take a bullet than a fall. 163 00:12:10,193 --> 00:12:12,316 You think you fast? 164 00:12:19,243 --> 00:12:23,407 This is a very high-minded goal you've set for yourselves. 165 00:12:23,498 --> 00:12:26,415 But this goal for the future of Afghanistan 166 00:12:26,500 --> 00:12:30,201 is just a lot of hot air unless we solve the military problem first. 167 00:12:30,296 --> 00:12:33,546 Our Special Forces soldiers are going to take the high ground 168 00:12:33,632 --> 00:12:38,009 in key positions throughout Afghanistan before the snow thaws. 169 00:12:38,095 --> 00:12:41,012 And the military part has to come first why? 170 00:12:41,098 --> 00:12:43,636 Because only after we've eradicated the enemy 171 00:12:43,725 --> 00:12:47,770 can we then get down to the true work of keeping this new democracy breathing. 172 00:12:47,854 --> 00:12:51,768 - So it's basically kill people to help people. - No. That's not what I said. 173 00:12:51,858 --> 00:12:54,527 I said "the enemy". Don't take that out of context. 174 00:12:54,611 --> 00:12:57,149 Sorry. I was just trying to boil it down. 175 00:12:57,238 --> 00:12:59,646 In 2002, I remember you said something like: 176 00:12:59,741 --> 00:13:02,907 "The Taliban's back is forever broken", then big applause. 177 00:13:02,994 --> 00:13:06,778 "Mission accomplished." Writ small. 178 00:13:06,872 --> 00:13:08,532 - Mistake. - Mistake? 179 00:13:08,624 --> 00:13:11,958 Because we now know the enemy with broken backs can still crawl 180 00:13:12,044 --> 00:13:16,207 and we know that the enemy learned their lesson from that first backbreaking. 181 00:13:16,298 --> 00:13:20,082 So you're taking it for granted there's gonna be a second backbreaking. 182 00:13:20,177 --> 00:13:22,549 Would we be having this meeting if I didn't? 183 00:13:22,638 --> 00:13:25,093 Is this how the rest of the hour's gonna go? 184 00:13:25,182 --> 00:13:28,882 I'm just asking questions. Senator, can you just give me one example 185 00:13:28,977 --> 00:13:31,385 of the enemy having learned a lesson? 186 00:13:31,479 --> 00:13:35,097 They've woken up to the fact that we're fighting on two fronts. 187 00:13:35,191 --> 00:13:38,192 And history does tend to punish that kind of hubris. 188 00:13:38,278 --> 00:13:43,023 So we're launching this new strategy using the military as the opening punch. 189 00:13:43,116 --> 00:13:45,737 Now, taking the high ground is key. 190 00:13:45,827 --> 00:13:49,077 Whoever takes it owns the ability to observe, 191 00:13:49,163 --> 00:13:53,410 the prerogative to attack, and the opportunity to preside. 192 00:13:53,501 --> 00:13:56,454 - So... preside? - It's why the Romans built forts. 193 00:13:56,545 --> 00:13:59,831 Establish a constant presence or you have constant violence. 194 00:13:59,923 --> 00:14:03,588 So we're gonna be there for good, like Romans? 195 00:14:05,053 --> 00:14:07,924 I said "constant", not "permanent". 196 00:14:08,473 --> 00:14:13,633 We have to have the same determination as these insurgents or they'll outlast us. 197 00:14:13,728 --> 00:14:16,729 This security allows us to build schools and clinics... 198 00:14:16,815 --> 00:14:20,230 - But where is NATO in all this? - Good question. Where are they? 199 00:14:20,318 --> 00:14:24,814 We can't wait for them to decide, so we put this new strategy into motion now. 200 00:14:24,906 --> 00:14:28,606 And why now? Why not a year ago? Two years? Three years? 201 00:14:28,701 --> 00:14:32,745 Two reasons. First reason, the satellites and drones 202 00:14:32,830 --> 00:14:35,784 are not nearly as omniscient as they're marketed to be. 203 00:14:35,875 --> 00:14:38,330 Anybody knows that. You just Google "Predator". 204 00:14:38,419 --> 00:14:42,831 - The second reason's ugly. - Ugly? Is that code for "off the record"? 205 00:14:42,923 --> 00:14:44,962 For the time being, yeah. 206 00:14:47,260 --> 00:14:48,671 OK. 207 00:14:49,346 --> 00:14:52,097 - Iran. - Iran? What are they doing now? 208 00:14:52,182 --> 00:14:55,385 Outside of building nuclear weapons, talking to North Korea, 209 00:14:55,477 --> 00:14:59,688 and telling Israel they don't know what a real holocaust looks like? 210 00:14:59,772 --> 00:15:03,817 They're allowing Wahhabi insurgents to hike from Iraq to Afghanistan 211 00:15:03,901 --> 00:15:09,108 - using the most direct route possible. - Across the countryside of Iran. 212 00:15:11,450 --> 00:15:13,692 - Is that confirmed? - By their denials. 213 00:15:13,786 --> 00:15:17,618 - Proof there truly is a new axis of evil. - Oh, wow. 214 00:15:17,706 --> 00:15:21,953 1300 years of murder between the Sunnis and Shiahs getting back-burnered now 215 00:15:22,044 --> 00:15:24,582 so they can kill more Americans in more places. 216 00:15:24,671 --> 00:15:28,716 Are we still off the record? Because this really is... this is a story. 217 00:15:28,800 --> 00:15:31,587 That's negotiable. Do you see what I'm saying? 218 00:15:31,678 --> 00:15:34,632 These radicals are uniting against us. 219 00:15:34,723 --> 00:15:38,056 We need to remind the American people who their enemies are. 220 00:15:38,143 --> 00:15:43,137 You have proof they are uniting against us, or are you saying there may be potential...? 221 00:15:43,231 --> 00:15:46,600 Don't underestimate how frightening a development this is. 222 00:15:46,692 --> 00:15:52,316 This is a significant threat to the security of our nation and you can quote me on this. 223 00:15:52,406 --> 00:15:55,857 Now that Iran has nuclear potential, we simply cannot... 224 00:15:55,951 --> 00:15:59,735 When you say "nuclear", it sounds like the same kind of fear-mongering... 225 00:15:59,830 --> 00:16:04,077 Your position affords you the luxury of that opinion. Mine does not. 226 00:16:04,168 --> 00:16:09,707 It is my responsibility, it's part of my job description to protect the American people, 227 00:16:09,798 --> 00:16:13,630 and that is why we put this new strategy into motion now. 228 00:16:13,718 --> 00:16:16,090 So when does it start? 229 00:16:17,806 --> 00:16:20,047 Ten minutes ago. 230 00:16:23,811 --> 00:16:26,349 Copy that.

That's what. 968 01:11:00,161 --> 01:11:03,447 It's the Vietnam-era thinking and they just repackaged. 969 01:11:03,540 --> 01:11:08,083 They're gonna send out small platoons, these kids, as bait. It's the same... 970 01:11:08,169 --> 01:11:12,036 No, no. That is speculation. We do not air speculation, OK? 971 01:11:12,131 --> 01:11:16,460 No, no. It's these guys.

No. 975 01:11:30,023 --> 01:11:34,353 I mean, he'll croon about hearts and minds, but it's all helicopters and marines. 976 01:11:34,444 --> 01:11:39,320 That's what... Jesus. Anyway, he couldn't care less about the soft stuff. 977 01:11:39,407 --> 01:11:44,698 This whole thing is a strategic... it's a lubricant to get him into the White House. 978 01:11:44,788 --> 01:11:47,113 So what? So the guy's ambitious. 979 01:11:47,207 --> 01:11:51,952 So what? Wait.
