2675 - The Secret History of the War on Terror w/ Craig Whitlock

Sam and Emma host Craig Whitlock, investigative reporter at the Washington Post, to discuss his recent book The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War. Sam and Emma first touch upon the resounding victory for Gavin Newsom in the California recall election from last night, and discuss Newsom's nationalizing of the recall/pinning the results to the "shadow president" for the Republicans (Trump) as a telegraph of the political strategy going forward into 2022. Then Emma and Sam are joined by Craig, who starts out by discussing how him and the Washington Post obtained the Afghanistan Papers, the trove of documents the Post obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that serve as the basis for the book, and how the book timed up perfectly with Biden's announcement of the withdrawal of troops in August, as well as the context behind the "Lessons Learned" project run through a little known federal agency called the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) that was the source of the lion's share of the notes and transcripts that comprised the papers. Craig goes deeper into describing the testimony from the interview transcripts of "Lessons Learned", citing how many past, present, and current military officials considered the war in Afghanistan "much worse than you think", and that "we didn't know what we were doing" in terms of strategic goals in Afghanistan. Craig goes so far as to report that former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld had no appreciable strategy for the war in Afghanistan beyond "chasing terrorists". Sam and Emma dive deeper into the idea that these transcripts and notes were intentionally hidden by the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations, noting that the SIGAR reports that were publicly disclosed were significantly edited and sanitized. Craig then goes back to the early 2000's, stating that there was a pretty clear game plan for the first 60 days of the war, but that there was no recognizable strategy or timetable for what the United States was doing occupying Afghanistan, especially when George W. Bush made it clear that this was not a "nation-building" project to begin with. The emphasis was also very clearly on Iraq over Afghanistan, to the point where Rumsfeld asked Bush to meet with the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan as well as the commander in Iraq. Bush only wanted to meet with the Iraq commander, and didn't even know who the Afghanistan commander was, and didn't want to meet with him anyways. Craig then pivots to the Obama years, where the Administration very clearly wanted to continue the war without calling it a war, so as to not step on the toes of their allies whose presence in Afghanistan would violate some of their own war-making laws and practices if it was called a war by their allies. Not wanting to call it a war, but not being accurate enough to call it a "peacekeeping mission", the Obama administration landed on the clunky "non-conventional war effort" to split the difference. Afterwards, Craig discloses the combustible report that the Bush Administration furiously attempted to cover up, that former Vice President Dick Cheney was almost killed in a suicide bombing at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, and how this pattern of attempting to spin every negative outcome into a positive one throughout the war persisted across every presidential administration in the 21st century. They end on the warped and strange arc of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's career, how he was a widely respected military official until his full throated embrace of Trump and QAnon stifled that perception, as well as Craig hoping that previous, current, and future administrations will learn from the mistakes of the past 20 years, but doesn't have too much hope because, well, Bush and Rumsfeld didn't learn from the mistakes of Vietnam outlined in, you guessed it, another trove of documents that made clear how badly we were losing a protracted war: The Pentagon Papers. In the Fun Half, Sam gives a brief primer on the fight over taxation between the House and the Senate Dems in the reconciliation mockups going around the Hill, the crew checks in on the House and Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearings where in the House Ilhan Omar grills Secretary of State Blinken over the drone strike that may have killed a foreign aid worker instead of an ISIS-K operative, and in the Senate Idaho Senator Jim Risch gets to more pressing matters, namely: who the heck is pressing the button that controls when Biden talks? Then the crew check in on Ben Shapiro melting down over Cara Delevingne's "Peg the Patriarchy" look at the Met Gala, to which Ben feels the great need to describe what pegging means to him. And FINALLY the crew has the honor of dissecting Tucker Carlson's fascination with Nicki Minaj's cousin's friend's balls after his COVID vaccination (Tucker corrected the record to reflect it was Nicki's cousin's friend, not cousin), Tucker's quest to get him on the show, and we get a real time dispatch from the Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister over whether this dude's balls actually swelled post-vax.

Emaginos Inc. Announces Filing of a Provisional Patent for Game-Changing EdManage Analytics Platform

Emaginos Incorporated, a company in the business of transforming K-12 public education, today announces it has filed a provisional patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its proprietary EdManage platform, an analytics platform that aggregates and analyzes all of a school district's data to deliver actionable information to users throughout the system. EdManage integrates all of the devices and applications within a school system that traditionally operate independently. The patent application, titled “Education Analytics Platform,” was filed with the USPTO on May 25, 2021.Quote. “Aristotle is frequently quoted as saying, 'The whole is greater than the sum of the parts' – with the clarification that this is only true when the whole emerges as something other than a heap of parts,” said Emaginos President Allan Jones. “If the parts are deliberately combined systematically into some new entity, then through synergy, the new entity emerges. Calling today's K-12 public education a ‘system' is a misnomer. It could better be described as a heap of components trying to collaborate in delivering quality education to the students. The components include everything from student handheld devices to the computer or cloud servers where the applications reside, including the network on which everything communicates. The parts do not magically morph into a smoothly functioning education system. They remain a heap of parts through which educators dig as they try to facilitate learning.“For each of the parts, years of usage have evolved them individually to perform their isolated tasks. End of story – until now.” End quote.The EdManage analytics platform systematically aggregates these individual parts, morphing them into a new entity that is truly greater than the sum of its parts. One reason this morphing does not currently exist within the educational system is the sources of the parts in the heap came from many different places – most of which operated independently, using application program interfaces and other standards to communicate when needed. EdManage changes everything! Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld pointed out, quote, “There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know.” End quote. Hidden in all their data, school districts have many unknown unknowns. A well-designed and implemented analytics platform provides alerts when an unknown unknown poses a threat or provides an opportunity. Therefore, there is a need to provide and implement such a platform to enhance the ability to efficiently educate children while comprehensively providing an integrated platform to coordinate all operational efforts of increasingly complex school districts.The EdManage analytics platform uses the latest technology to implement some of the world's oldest educational wisdom. About 2,500 years ago, Confucius taught, quote, “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” End quote. EdManage is a key component of the Emaginos Discovery Learning System, enabling constant opportunities to do and understand. The EdManage analytics platform aggregates and analyzes all of a district's data and then provides previously unattainable actionable information for optimizing every aspect of the district's operations.For more information about getting Emaginos in your school district, visit www.Emaginos.com Media Inquiries: press@emaginos.comFor additional information about Emaginos or to schedule an interview with Allan Jones, please contact Emaginos at (571) 921-4200.To learn more about investing in Emaginos, please visit: www.Emaginos.com*This audio content was produced by Stock Wave for Investor Brand Network.

On the podcast this week we examine whether shippers’ complaints that box lines are profiteering hold any water. We then turn to the results of the Lloyd’s List Decarbonisation Survey that we conducted late last year in search of some much-needed clarity regarding carbon reduction. xx ARE container lines profiteering? Well the short answer of course is if they are then they’re really not very good at it historically speaking. Nevertheless, shippers are not a happy bunch right now with Asia-Europe rates in excess of $4,000 per TEU. Complaints raised in China, Europe and the US have again raised questions over the performance and practices of container lines, so this week we deploy our own container kingpins – James Baker and Janet Porter to discuss whether sky high freight rates and congestion justify shippers’ ire. We follow that with a look at whether we have sufficient clarity over the details of decarbonisation. To borrow a favorite phrase from former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, shipping’s zero carbon project is still riddled with too many ‘known unknowns’ Which is why Lloyd’s list teamed up with classification society Lloyd’s Register to launch a regular Decarbonisation Survey late last year. And the results are in. We are joined this week by our very our climate change consultant to the industry, Anastassios Adamopoulos and the head of Lloyd’s Register’s recently launched Decarbonisation Hub, Charles Haskell to discuss the survey results and what they tell us about the industry’s readiness to invest in a cleaner future.

Be it gin making, gin producing, gin distilling, gin manufacturing, gin commercialising, gin tasting, gin, drinking gin, steeping, and everything else in between There are pivotal moments in everyone’s career where you’re presented with known options, and on occasion, something completely unexpected. Such occasions may be summed up by what former 2-time US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld once famously refer to as “unknown unknowns” Today's guest on the Distillers’ Voice came face to face with one such occasion in 2006 Jamie Baxter’s craft distilling foray was the product of remarkable circumstances and a willingness to take on something new, exciting, and most likely somewhat terrifying at the same time. Tyrrells Chips owner Will Chase sought Jamie’s help to build a muesli factory at his Herefordshire farm location, in England’s West Midlands. Jamie procured the kit required to get things underway and then took a pre-arranged holiday with his family some 6 weeks later. Upon his return to Herefordshire, Jamie had learnt that building a muesli plant was now off the table and the equipment orders he’d place were no longer required. But in true leadership fashion, Will Chase had other plans; he now wanted to build a distillery to make potato vodka and asked Jamie for help. An offer one would be unwise to refuse! Chase Distillery In 2006, the minimum size for a still was 1,800 litres and notion of craft distilling in its current form was illegal at that time. Interestingly, it became clear to both Jamie and Will that an 1,800 litre still with the supporting infrastructure required was not going to cut it, so they went big, very big; how about a beautifully crafted still with a 15m column and 42 bubble plates. And the rest as they say, is history Jamie and I chat about · 3 other craft distilling pioneers from the “Class of 2006” and the industry impact they still have today · What vodka, Jamie, Will Chase and rap legend P Diddy have in common · The importance of provenance and how rural and urban settings present this in their narratives · The Distillery of London and how its story reflects the area’s unrivalled gin heritage ·  Gin education with BDES in the US and Brew School in the UK · The phenomenon that is Pink Gin, and spirit definitions in the UK · Jamie’s top 5 tips for success So grab yourself a potato vodka or a gin with balanced citrus and enjoy today’s podcast with myself and The Artisan Distiller, Jamie Baxter Be bold.

 The US Army that began the Second Seminole War was a small one. Congress distrusted large standing armies and disliked the cost for funding them even more. As former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld famous remarked about a later conflict: “You go to war with the army you have, not the army you might want or wish to have at a later time.” Fortunately, the U.S. Army did not fight unaided.The US Government saw fit to send in the Marines to assist. Tradition says that the Marine Corps Commandant, Colonel Archibald Henderson, pinned a note to his door: "Gone to Florida to fight the Indians. Will be back when the war is over.” Joining us today to discuss the historic part that the U.S. Marine Corps played in the Second Seminole War is Dave Eckardt, author of the first book on their mobilization, aptly titled, The U.S. Marines in the Second Creek and Seminole Wars. He is also a Marine re-enactor, seen below sporting the summer uniform, during an event at Fort Foster in Florida, and above in the winter uniform at an exhibition event.  Host Patrick Swan is a board member with the Seminole Wars Foundation. He is a combat veteran and of the U.S. Army, serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Kosovo, and at the Pentagon after 9/11. A military historian, he holds masters degrees in Public History, Communication, and Homeland Security, and is a graduate of the US Army War College with an advanced degree in strategic studies.

On Monday, the Washington Post released the fruits of a three-year investigative effort: the "Afghanistan Papers," a once-secret internal government history of a deadly, costly, and ultimately futile entanglement. The hundreds of frank, explosive interviews — along with a new tranche of memos written by the former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld — revealed the extent to which American leaders misled the public on their efforts to hunt down Osama Bin Laden, rout the Taliban, expel Al Qaeda, install democracy, and undo corruption. In this podcast extra, investigative reporter Craig Whitlock tells Bob about the monumental story that the Post uncovered — and the extraordinary effort it took to report it out.

Is the Lack of Free Play Endangering our Democracy?

Free play, also known as child-directed play, is becoming more and more restricted for American kids. We’ve talked on PlayGrounding many times about the importance of free play, how it’s where many children first encounter risk and freedom. It’s where they first begin to encounter “otherness,” where they find ways to work together with kids of various ages and backgrounds in an undefined arena. Play helps us cope in the realm of personal relationships, helps us develop innovative minds and healthy bodies. But today we’re taking a step back from the benefits of play to us as individuals and diving into what it could mean for our society, for the health of our democracy, when we restrict free play in the lives of our children. Pratik Chougule, an executive editor at The American Conservative, wrote an article entitled Is American Childhood Creating an Authoritarian Society? I was immediately fascinated by the idea that there could be political implications to a lack of free play. In this episode, we’ll discuss studies showing possible connections between child rearing practices and the likelihood that those children will tolerate authoritarian forms of government. We’ll also talk about how free play helps us learn to handle opposing ideas and work toward consensus. I hope you enjoy the episode and as always, please feel free to submit your own ideas in the comments or by contacting me to keep the conversation going. Pratik Chougule is an executive editor at The American Conservative. He was previously the managing editor at The National Interest and served as the policy coordinator on the 2016 presidential campaign of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. Chougule has contributed to projects for the Trilateral Commission, International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, and Baron Public Affairs. He has assisted a number of senior officials with their memoirs, including former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the United Nations Zalmay Khalilzad and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. From 2008-2009, Chougule was a Bush appointee at the State Department in the Office of the Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security. Chougule graduated from Phi Beta Kappa from Brown University and holds a J.D. from Yale Law School.

Points of View with Jillian Keiley

In this Points of View Podcast Associate Artistic Director Sarah Garton Stanley interviews director David Ferry and Rosemary Thompson for Stuff Happens. “Stuff happens… and it's untidy, and freedom's untidy, and free people are free to make mistakes and commit crimes and do bad things.” ~ U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on April 11, 2003, following the looting and pillaging of Baghdad History in the making. Stuff Happens is dramatic dynamite, a provocative political drama starring a president, a prime minister, and a crowd of high-level decision-makers. Should the U.S. lead a war against Iraq? Are there indeed weapons of mass destruction or just words of mass distraction? A spellbinding blend of documented details, public-record information, and theatrical invention, Hare's fusing of historical narrative with human drama exposes the relentless politicking behind the 2003 invasion. Stuff Happens is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, INC. Did you know? Stuff Happens premiered at the National Theatre in London in 2004 and has subsequently been performed across the globe, including in Washington, DC.
