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.

It has finally arrived! Part 1 on our three part on 9/11...where were you the day the world stopped turning? (The world doesn't turn but nice play on words by us from that country song) We all remember that day and we were taught to remember it. The psychological operation that was orchestrated on all Americans that day is a day that most of us won't forget. Children watched on their television screens at elementary schools as people leaped to their deaths and souls were crushed under the rumble of the collapsing towers. As Americans we used to say that we all would never forget but sadly a lot have...I can say that those of us in this movement and the Truth Hooligans will never forget...In part 1 Boia and Big-Country break down the official narrative of the events that took place that awful day. From the "hijackings" to the towers being struck, the first responders arriving on scene the towers collapsing and Bush reading a children's book upside down we dive deep into what the "official narrative" is and how there are many holes that will be blown open for parts two and three.

On this edition of Parallax Views, the great Scott Horton, an inspiration for Parallax Views, the host of The Scott Horton Show, and the author of both Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan and Enough Already: Time to End the War on Terror, joins us to provide a down-and-dirty history lesson on the War on Terror and how neoconservative war hawks played right into bin Laden's hands in the aftermath of 9/11. Bin Laden, Scott argues, wanted the U.S. to react to 9/11 by getting involved in an unwinnable war in Afghanistan. Afghanistan, Scott says, was a "Vietnam 2.0" that would inevitably end the same way the Soviet incursion into Afghanistan ended. Who were the architects of these wars? We delve into the neocons like Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, and Michael Ledeen and their enablers like Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney who gave us the decades long nightmare of the War on Terror in the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks. We talk George W. Bush, the waste of the War on Terror, why conservative, libertarians, and progressives should oppose wars and imperial hubris, the history of the neocons and their ex-Trotyskite roots, John Podhoretz, radical Islamists, Colin Powell, and much, much more!

RUSH: You know, I'm sitting here, folks, and I'm watching all this self-absorbed remembrances going on in the media today about 9/11, and I promise you we're not going to do that. I'm not going to bother telling you what I thought on 9/11. It wasn't about me. There's one thing that strikes me. It just hit me like a bolt of lightning this morning as I'm watching this stuff. There is one day a year where the Democratic Party and the American left admit that 9/11 happened, and it's 9/11, it's today. Now, what happened to the other 364 days of the year? They just pretend it never happened. But today, oh, yes, it happened. We're out there doing the mass mush walk, and it's interesting to note. Greetings, my friends, and welcome. Rush Limbaugh here behind the Golden EIB Microphone at the Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies. The telephone number today has not changed, ladies and gentlemen: 800-282-2882, and the e-mail address if you want to send an e-mail is Rush@eibnet.com. Got lots of great audio sound bites today. Dick Cheney yesterday, masterful on Meet the Press. Russert assumed the role of a prosecutor yesterday, and Cheney held up well. I watched The Path to 9/11 last night on the plane ride back home from Los Angeles. I wanted to watch the Manning bowl which was on at the same time. So I intended just to watch the parts of the movie I knew where there might be edits, and I couldn't tear myself away from it, even a second time, ladies and gentlemen. We'll talk about it in greater detail here in just a moment. But the edits were not that severe. They really weren't. https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2006/09/11/it_s_the_one_day_a_year_democrats_must_admit_that_9_11_actually_happened/ Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

In this week's very special episode, we take time to mourn, reflect, and work through our own feelings regarding the September 11 terrorist attacks. Twenty years removed from the tragedy, we discuss the ways in which it irrevocably informed our childhoods and adolescence, set the stage for our larger understanding of the world and the systems through which we view it, and parse what exactly a two decade anniversary "means" to us. Finally, we survey the numerous examples of film and television who themselves worked to place meaning on an event and its aftermath more infinitely inscrutable than easily digestible. Above all else, this episode is dedicated to the many brave men and women who not only lost their lives that day but for the living victims as well, whose scars are sometimes scarcely visible but no less traumatic or impactful. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2002/02/11/the-real-heroes-are-dead

What is the Biden policy toward China? Stephen Yates, CEO of D.C. International Advisory and former advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney. @YatesDCIA Gordon Chang @GordonGChang Throughout much of the 2000s, the Bush campaign argued for a move away from of “constructive strategic partnership” of the Clinton Administration towards a more realistic “strategic competition” with China. Through the first eight months of the Bush Administration, a great deal of effort was invested in redefining and resetting US policy towards China, consistent with the campaign. It didn't happen immediately after 9/11, but soon thereafter the tone and content of Bush Administration dealings with China returned to the emphasis on cooperation over competition. As the Global War on Terror emerged as the dominant global priority, and counterproliferation challenges from North Korea to Pakistan to Iran leaped to top-tier concerns, the president and other national security principals argued that competition with China was a long-term reality but, in the immediate term, cooperation with China was essential to address pressing national security demands. Somewhat akin to “14 days to flatten the curve” with regard to COVID, the “immediate term” pursuit of cooperation from China on GWOT and counterproliferation stretched from the end of President Bush's first year in office all the way through the end of his presidency. https://www.cfr.org/timeline/us-relations-china

Retired Marine Lt. Colonel Robert Darling joins Tim to tell his story of what it was like in the White House bunker on 9/11, where the vice president and other administration officials gathered intel and made decisions minute by minute. Some of those decisions were not only life and death, but historically, never had to be made before. Robert gives an insider's story on how the nation's leadership responded to the most severe attack on America's homeland since the Civil War. This episode is part of our special series, "9/11: A Generation Removed." https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/shapingopinion/Inside_the_White_House_Bunker_at_20.mp3 As much as has been reported over the years about what happened on September 11th, 2001, outside of some of the leaders involved, you rarely get the chance to hear the story from an insider – someone who was both a participant and a witness to history, in that context. That's what you get when you hear the story of now retired Marine Lieutenant Colonel Robert J. Darling. Bob was a military liaison officer to the President. He was primarily responsible for planning air travel logistics for the President, the Vice President and the First Family. He was a pilot of Marine One, the helicopter that carries the President. He was a combat-hardened former Marine Cobra helicopter pilot. On September 11th, he found himself in direct support to Vice President Dick Cheney, the National Security Advisor, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, and others in the administration and in the nation's leadership apparatus. He was a critical communications link between those in the White House bunker and the chain of command outside of the bunker in national security, at the Pentagon, transportation, the Federal Aviation Administration, world leaders and others. When the terrorist attacks happened, the President was in Florida. The vice president was on site in the White House, along with other senior members of the administration. In the years before September 11th, much prepared him for what he'd see, what he'd hear and what he would have to do on that day. But as we find out, everyone who was with him in the White House bunker that day brought with them their own special histories and experiences that uniquely prepared them for the roles each would play, to make decisions that would affect the safety of millions and influence the future of the country they served. Links Robert J. Darling (website) 24 Hours Inside the White House Bunker, by Robert J. Darling (Barnes & Noble) Inside the White House Bunker on 9/11, West Point Center for Oral History About 9/11: A Generation Removed On September 11, 2021, America will mark the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the country that happened on September 11, 2001. In remembrance of the event, the Shaping Opinion podcast will release a series of nine distinct episodes centered on the 9/11 attacks, starting on Friday, September 3rd and culminating on the 20th Anniversary, September 11, 2021. The series, entitled, “9/11: A Generation Removed,” will feature six new and original episodes for 2021, and three encore episodes, all based on the personal experiences of guests and stories of people who were there in New York, in Washington, D.C., and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. About this Episode's Guest Robert J. Darling Lieutenant Colonel Robert J. Darling retired from the United States Marine Corps with just over twenty years of active duty service in October 2007. He flew Cobra attack helicopters in Desert Shield and Desert Storm during the first Gulf War and in Somalia, Africa in support of Operation Restore Hope. In June 1998, he was selected to fly as a presidential pilot with Marine Helicopter Squadron One and in October 2000, he was selected to work for The White House Military Office, Airlift Operations Department. It was in that capacity that, then Major Darling supported the President,

PAT LOEHER: Hi. I'm Pat Loeher. I'm director of the Centers of Global Oncology and Health Equity at Indiana University Melbourne and Bren Simon Cancer Center. DAVID JOHNSON: And good morning. I'm Dave Johnson. I'm professor of Internal Medicine Oncology at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas. We're really excited to be back with the second episode of our ASCO Educational Podcast Oncology, et cetera. And I don't know about you, but my arm's really sore from entering all the fan mail we got from the first episode. Either that or maybe it was that shingles shot I got last week I don't know. PAT LOEHER: No, I agree. I really appreciate Bev. Your wife just kept texting me how wonderful I was, and it was-- I enjoyed it. DAVID JOHNSON: Well, I'm glad you mentioned that, because I wanted to read this one fan mail. It says, dear, Dave. Thanks for carrying Pat [INAUDIBLE]. I don't know who that is, but I appreciate it. PAT LOEHER: Yeah, it works both ways. Works both ways. So what have you been reading lately, Dave? DAVID JOHNSON: Well, as you know, I love to read. And actually what I'm reading right now is The Howe dynasty by Julie Flavell. It's about the brothers Howe that were involved in the Revolutionary War. But the book I finished just prior to the one I'm reading now is Adam Grant's Think Again, which I really enjoyed. It made me think again. What about you? PAT LOEHER: How many times have you read the book by the way? DAVID JOHNSON: Again. Twice. PAT LOEHER: Think again. Yeah. There was the book that's called The One Thing. I know if you saw that book which I read a while back. It took me, like, a year to do it, because I just kept doing other things while I was reading it. I felt so guilty about it. I did read the book Caste recently, and it was on Oprah Winfrey's list. Barack Obama picked it. And actually read that on my way to Kenya a couple of months ago and found it very fascinating actually. You know, the notion of the juxtaposing of Nazi Germany, of the caste system in India, and the racial struggles that was going on here in this country. And I thought it was a very well written book. DAVID JOHNSON: Yeah. You mentioned that book to me, and I finished reading it a couple of weeks ago. I agree with you. I enjoy it very much. I learned a lot. We want to introduce today's guest. We're really, really fortunate to have with us today Dr. Otis Brawley. Dr. Brawley Is the Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Oncology and Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University. He's a graduate of the University of Chicago School of Medicine. He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the University Hospitals in Cleveland Case Western Reserve and did a Fellowship in Medical Oncology at the National Cancer Institute, where he spent a good portion of his early career. In the 2000s, he relocated to Atlanta, where he became medical director of the Georgia Cancer Center for Excellence at Grady Memorial Hospital. One of the really most famous safety net hospitals in America. He was deputy director of Cancer Control at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. And then he moved on to really a significant role. He became the chief medical and scientific officer and executive vise president of the American Cancer Society from 2007 to 2018, and we'll have a chance to perhaps query him about that. Currently, he leads a broad interdisciplinary research program on cancer health disparities at the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. Dr. Brawley has received innumerable awards. It would take the whole podcast to list them all. But among them are the American Medical Association Distinguished Service Award, University of Chicago Alumni of Professional Achievement Award, and-- one that I think is particularly poignant for ASCO members-- the Martin D. Abeloff Award for Excellence in Public Health and Cancer Control. In 2015, Dr. Brawley was elected to the National Academy of Medicine and well deserved. So just welcome to oncology, et cetera. Thank you so much for taking the time to be with us today. OTIS BRAWLEY: Thank you for having me. It's a pleasure to be with you and Pat. DAVID JOHNSON: Well, it's great to have you. I can tell you that. So let's just start with just a little background. Why don't you tell us about yourself? Where are you from? Where did you grow up? OTIS BRAWLEY: I grew up in Detroit. I grew up in one of the automobile worker neighborhoods, a blue collar neighborhood, and went to the Catholic schools there. The nuns in grade school pushed me toward the Jesuit school for high school, and the Jesuits in high school taught me how to think and really propelled me. And indeed much of my career, much of my writings, my philosophy toward medicine was really influenced by early education with the Jesuits. DAVID JOHNSON: Wow. PAT LOEHER: Hey, Otis. I just want to throw in-- in terms of books that we've read, one of the other books that I want to give a shout out is the book you wrote called How We Do Harm, which was really a wonderful book. I think it was several years in the making. Would love to hear how you made that. But I do-- while you're talking about your background, speak a little bit about Edward McKnight Brawley and Benjamin. OTIS BRAWLEY: Oh, OK. Benjamin Brawley was my grandfather's brother, and Edward McKnight Brawley was my grandfather's father. They're both ministers in the Methodist Church, the AME Church. Benjamin Brawley was dean of Morehouse College back in the 1920s, and he was the first Brawley to graduate from the University of Chicago. He got a PhD from the University of Chicago back during the 19-teens. And those are just a couple of my relatives. If you go to Morehouse, you'll find that the English building is Benjamin Brawley Hall, and Edward McKnight Brawley was his father and was a free Black back before the Civil War, and a minister before, during, and after. PAT LOEHER: Incredible legacy. Incredible legacy. DAVID JOHNSON: Those were your relatives from the South from the Georgia area? OTIS BRAWLEY: Well, my father grew up in Northwestern Alabama. An area called Leighton, Alabama. It's near Muscle Shoals. So those of us who remember the Beverly Hillbillies. My mother is from the middle of Arkansas. She's from Pine Bluff, Arkansas. And they met in Detroit. They were part of that northern migration in the early 20th century, where a large number of Blacks left the rural South and went up North to get jobs primarily in the industrial North. My father arrived there right after World War II. He served in World War II, got discharged, and went to Detroit. My mother actually went to Detroit really early on during World War II and worked in an airplane factory during the war. Then the two of them met. My father was a janitor at the Veterans Hospital in Detroit, and my mother worked in the cafeteria there. And that's how they met. They had my older sister, who was 8 years older than me, who became an attorney. And my younger sister was a certified public accountant. PAT LOEHER: What a remarkable story for your parents. And tell us a little bit about your journey to become a physician. How did that happen? OTIS BRAWLEY: It was very interesting. In high school, I was very talkative. I was very interested in policy. I did debate. It was very not a sciencey kind of person. In college, I became very interested in Chemistry and for much of College. I was going to go to graduate school in Chemistry. And luckily, when I was in college, I came under the influence of an infectious disease doc named Elliot Kieff. And he and I became very good friends. He was chief of infectious disease at the University of Chicago at that time. And over about two years, Elliott convinced me to drop the Chemistry thing and go to Medical school. And I applied to Medical school late, because I was so late in making that decision. I got into the University of Chicago and stayed there because my support system was there. And then in Medical school came across another gentleman. I've been very fortunate to have good mentorship and good people. They influenced me over the years. John Altman, who was one of the original medical oncologists back in the 1950s when there was arguments about how we should be staging people. Should there be four stages or three stages, and that sort of thing is when John really cut his teeth in Oncology. He became a great lymphoma doc. John took me under his wing while I was in Medical school, and pretty much open the world up to me, and explained to me how the world rotates in Medicine. And that heavily influenced me. Told me to go into Oncology because I still had an interest in Policy. And he said there's going to be a lot of policy in oncology in the future, and the best way to get involved with it is to get your credentials as a medical oncologist. And in many respects, I think in the early 1980s, John was thinking I was going to be chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, which I obtained in 2007. PAT LOEHER: Wow. Yeah. We want to hear more about that. I just have to throw this in parenthetically that one of the things I did here is that I applied late to Medical school and got into the University of Chicago. I just wanted to know that I applied early, and there was a lesser known school in Chicago that sent me a rejection letter. And not only did they reject me, the last line of it says, good luck in whatever career you decide to go into, meaning that, if you can't get into our school, there's no way you'll be a physician. So I really admire you. DAVID JOHNSON: Yeah. I applied late too and-- PAT LOEHER: Got into Vanderbilt. DAVID JOHNSON: No. No. No, no. I didn't go to Vanderbilt. I only got into accepted to one medical school, and it was late. I was just like my career as a chief. And I was, like, the last person admitted to my class in med school. That's unbelievably interesting. Tell us, was John your influence to go to the NCI? Or what prompted you to choose the NCI for your medical oncology training? OTIS BRAWLEY: Actually, John was very influential in that decision. I told him I wanted to go into medical oncology when I was a resident in Cleveland. And he said, Otis, in his Austrian accent, I have been expecting this phone call. And he then told me where I was going to apply and gave me a list of nine places to apply. He told me I would get an interview at every one of those places. And as I was going place to place, I should rank them one, two, three, four. And so I called them with his ranking. And my first choice was not the National Cancer Institute. At which point he told me, if you go to that place, I will never speak to you again. PAT LOEHER: Oh wow. OTIS BRAWLEY: And I said, but you told me to go there to interview. He said, I wanted you to interview there, but I don't want you to train there. And I said, well, my first choice is the National Cancer Institute. And he said, fine. And a couple of days later, I got a phone call from the National Cancer Institute, and I got hired. And I will also tell you I called John up. And he says, Otis, I have been expecting this phone call. And then he said, now I want you to realize something. There is an old boys network, and your job is to get more Blacks and women into it. That's how you will thank me. PAT LOEHER: Wow. Wow. DAVID JOHNSON: So you were at the NCI at a period of time where many people would say it was the heyday of the NCI. I think it's still the heyday now, but tell us about your experiences there. What was it like? OTIS BRAWLEY: It was fascinating. It was when Vince DeVita was still the director. I was there for the transition. Eli Glatstein was the chair of Radiation Oncology. It was an amazing group of people. Dan Longo was there doing lymphoma. Marc Lippman was still there doing breast. It was just an amazing group of people when I applied, and interviewed, and when I first got there. And there was still a lot of excitement. We were still heavily involved in chemotherapy. Of course, I was up on the 12th and 13th floor building 10. Down on the second and third floor was Dr. Rosenberg doing his immunotherapy work, which of course, has now paid off dramatically. Some of the old monoclonal antibody work that led to a number of wonderful drugs was being started at that time in the mid to late 1980s. And so it was still a very, very exciting time at the National Cancer Institute. And in many respects, we were still on that burst of optimism that started with Nixon's war on cancer in 1971. It was still felt almost 20 years later at the National Cancer Institute. DAVID JOHNSON: And you linked up with an old friend of mine from the old Southeast Cancer City, a gentleman by the name of Barry Kramer? OTIS BRAWLEY: Yes. DAVID JOHNSON: What a wonderful relationship. So how influential was Barry in your involvement? OTIS BRAWLEY: Barry was incredibly influential. As I said, I have been very fortunate that along the way I have come under the influence of some amazing physicians, and I've had amazing mentorship. And that's actually, I think, important for all of us in oncology. Barry and I got to work together for quite a long while. Barry influenced me and literally taught me epidemiology. Got me some major opportunities at the National Cancer Institute and really was influential in promoting me and boosting my career. PAT LOEHER: I want to move you a little bit longer in your career and talk about the ACS and a little bit your experience there, Otis. And then with that, actually, maybe the secondary question is, a commentary on the leaders over the years that you have had-- the aspects of good things about leadership and the poor things. And obviously, you have certainly much to share on that. OTIS BRAWLEY: Yeah. Well, as I devote my career at the National Cancer Institute, I went to the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. Under Barry, learned a lot of epidemiology, and learned a lot about screening, learned a lot about treatment outcomes, got very involved with some of the disparities or minority health issues. And then I was very fortunate to be detailed to work in the surgeon general's office and work with David Satcher when he was surgeon general. He's the one who started using the words, health disparities. Prior to that, we called it minority health or special populations. He used health disparities. And I was able to use some of my epidemiologic talents to develop some of those arguments using science to show. And actually some of the things that we had to show, believe it or not, was we had to show that equal treatment yields equal outcome amongst equal patients, because a lot of people, especially the politicians we need to deal with, were really hung up. And we still see this to this day that people are hung up that Black biology is different from white biology. Even in breast cancer today I hear that even though I like to point out there are now six states where the Black death rate for breast cancer is the same as the white death rate for breast cancer. And there are 12 states in the United States where white women have a higher risk of death from breast cancer than Black women in Massachusetts. But anyway, we got into this biology thing. And so I was very fortunate again to work for David Satcher and had some exposure to Tuskegee syphilis trial and the president's apology for that. So I was really involved with a number of things. And then the Jesuits still back there-- always think, always be contemplative, always reflect on what you're doing, always question what you're doing. Father Pawlikowski's maxims, which Dick Cheney sort of preferred is a few years later. And that is there are things you know, things you don't know, things you believe. Question what you know more so than anything else. And so that's really how I develop my concerns about orthodox use of Medicine. And using the science and applying it in a very Orthodox way, I started realizing that a lot of the disparities were due to wasted resources with people being non-scientific especially in the era of the 1990s, where everybody was doing prostate cancer screening, and there was not a single trial to show that prostate cancer screening saved lives. Yet all the resources were going into that, and people were literally-- I was able to go to various safety net hospitals and see all the resources being diverted away. People would shut down cervical cancer screening programs to do prostate cancer, which just didn't make sense. So I got very interested in how you practice medicine. Went to the Emory in 2001, because I wanted some practical experience outside of government. And had a wonderful opportunity to go there. Work at Emory. Work at one of the largest safety net hospitals in the country. Learn a little bit about the practical application of Medicine and some of the problems that people at safety net hospitals encounter. Worked with the School of Public Health and folks who did health education to learn how to convey messages. And then I was very fortunate. You know, the American Cancer Society is right down the street from Emory University. And I had met the chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, Harmon Eyre, back in the 1990s when I was at the National Cancer Institute. And again this sort of mentoring thing comes up again. Harmon called me up one morning and said, why don't we go to lunch? And so we went to one of the student cafeterias at Emory and had lunch. And he essentially said, you know, I'm 67 years old. I've had this job for 20 years. I'm tired of it. Why don't you take it? PAT LOEHER: Wow. OTIS BRAWLEY: And so I applied to be chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society and got to know John Safran, who, at that time, was the CEO, who was a wonderful man with incredible vision. Again, this mentorship thing comes up again. PAT LOEHER: Well, Dave we had a lot of information here. We're going to carry this over. This concludes the first part of our two-part interview with Dr. Brawley. And our next episode will air on October 5. We'll talk a little bit more about Dr. Brawley's life experiences and particularly his work with the American Cancer Society NCI. He's been an incredible individual, and we look forward to finishing up this conversation.

The chaotic withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and rapid fall of Kabul to the Taliban brought back in sharp focus the misguided policies of the George W. Bush administration that led the US into the War on Terror. In “To Start a War: How the Bush Administration Took America into Iraq,” Robert Draper, a writer at large for the New York Times Magazine and the author of several books tells the story of the Bush Administration's misguided invasion of Iraq in 2003. Draper delves into the relationships between the President, his key advisors, and the US intelligence community while painting a vivid picture of the misguided decision-making process that led to groupthink and a colossal intelligence failure. The popular narrative on the invasion of Iraq points to the politicization of intelligence on the question of Iraq's possession of weapons of mass destruction. Draper's book delves into this question, revealing in intimate detail the intense pressure piled onto the agency by Vice President Dick Cheney and his chief of staff Lewis Libby. While Draper tells the story of the invasion of Iraq with remarkable impartiality and fair-mindedness, he also presents an especially unflattering portrayal of CIA Director George Tenet and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Draper reveals, for instance, that the Defense Secretary was privy to authoritative intelligence in September 2002 – a full seven months before the invasion of Iraq was launched – that it was highly unlikely that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction. “Rumsfeld was uniquely in possession of an argument not to go to war, and he sat on it,” Draper concludes. The United States continues to suffer from the consequences of the decisions made in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001. Draper's book should serve as a warning and a guide about the dangers of executive decision making gone wrong and the disastrous consequences that can result.
With the Capitol under attack, the President on Air Force One, and the Defense Secretary missing, Vice President Dick Cheney was the most powerful man in the country on the morning of 9/11. From a bunker beneath the White House, he gave fighter pilots flying above the Capitol permission to shoot down hijacked commercial planes.But did Cheney actually have the authority to issue this order? Did he and President Bush connect before or after Cheney ordered the fighters into battle? And was the U.S. even ready to shoot down any hijacked flights?

Director Abby Ginzberg is giving us life in episode 602 of the podcast. Abby is the director of the upcoming documentary Barbara Lee: Speaking Truth To Power and the film couldn't come at a better time. Barbara Lee is a force to be reckon with - she was fighting for human rights as early as high school when she fought for herself and others, while working with the NAACP, to be considered for the cheerleading squad - not just the white, blue-eyed, blonde girls. As a single mother Congresswoman Barbara Lee attended Mills College in Oakland, Ca. and received her Masters of Social Work from University of California, Berkeley - all the while volunteering with the Black Panther party and then working on Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm's historic presidential campaign. As timely as it is right now, Congresswoman Barbara Lee was the lone NO vote to authorize the President the use of military force in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Barbara Lee believed that the authorization would become a blank check for an endless war - HAVE YOU READ THE NEWS THIS WEEK?! Congresswoman Lee's moral character and values have led her impeccable career in U.S. politics and we're so inspired by her story. We're glad that Abby pursued this story of Barbara Lee and hope you see Barbara Lee: Speaking Truth To Power when it comes out in theaters and streaming platforms August 20. Support women in film.

After a week off for travel and for Steve to recover from the pummeling he took at the hands of “Lucretia” in our last episode two weeks ago, the 3WHH is back with some fresh malts and fresh looks at the news of the week. We start with what appears to be the White House cat fight between First Doctor Jill Biden and Veep Kaaaaammmaaala Harris, and then proceed to examine the special House January 6 committee and contrast the salutary role Dick Cheney filled in the Iran-Contra congressional committee “investigation” in 1987 and the role Liz Cheney—the only Republican who will be on the committee—looks to play in this “investigation.” One question we’re sure the committee won’t “investigate”—who shot Ashli Babbitt? We’re at day 177, and there are some new theories leaking out. From there we read the easily readable tea leaves of the announcement that the trustees of the University of North Carolina crumpled under pressure and awarded Nicole Hannah-Jones full tenure after all in the UNC “journalism” school. If the Republican-appointed trustees in a conservative state can’t stand up to the academic left, it suggests there really is no hope of fixing or reforming our rotten universities. And that led to a discussion of the Fourth of July holiday, in which we mix founding principle alongside our beef grilling plans. Cheers!
