A dog flew. Yeah out what god actually it's it is our local pieces morning Chris Miller's reporting on. And no not here yet but if it's in taxes you know. Is probably going to be here release such with the experts like do you know if we can be captured from our goal that's a good question. He says do down no bit it's highly contagious. And affects the approach just about like it does humans. We will show. And keep an Ohio not you know I. I'd wander through would be too late a regular try to get a hold someone from the SEC. One over the too late to do vote you'd all of Lucia. I know probably doesn't mean that you better do that. Remains absent a dog issues miserable well with this so noisy you know Ian. Hate to see that happen absolutely thank you Dave the FSA you're. All I gotta ask you because there are others may wonder did you ever find out what happened to the cars is still being diagnosed it's being diagnosed they think. They think it's a timing chain and the way I understand I know nothing about cars okay. I think. I mean train is some that I think that is inside your engine. I want it pops. The guys you're done it's like a bad ball ball on the engines group or with ago yeah it it sounds like about one that he yes are you thank you Dave. All right. It's a thirteen minutes after 6 o'clock in just a couple of minutes we're going to. Start talking about of all things this time of the morning terrorism. It is amazing how the majority of Americans believe that we Americans are losing the battle. And the terrorist. Or winning we'll talk to you about that a viable force to secure a Lloyd's family and we have a very special guest to that's just the whole terrorist situation. Bob Mitchell in for Tommy Tucker at 613. A WWL. That's extra material on bomb went to look at comic like a feels nice outside of the command all of you actually side. Americans believe more than ever the terrorists to winning the war on terror in a brand new CNN poll. Just 18%. Of Americans surveyed said the US and allies. Were ahead of the terror for a while 40% now say the terrorist have the upper hand. The number of almost completely. Flop flip flop when the question was first Astra one month. Affluent the nine elevenths attacks and 42%. Said the US was winning the war on terror well of endorsements of the terrorist. Were dominating. The flight in our guest this morning is on Michael rule wouldn't resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Michael thank you for being on the show this morning. Who's winning this fight right. You know poppy it's it's agree question. But ultimately I understand where those polls are coming from because our greatest successes. Against terrorism has not been because of our actions but rather because the terrorists has stirred up and by that I mean underwear bomb on them. At Christmas several years ago not blowing up the plane over Detroit the car bomb has sling in Times Square. We claim success after each of those but the fact of the matter is those bombs and gotten through. Our basic problem with our counterterrorism. Is of course were always trying to defend. Against the last terrorist attack or the terrorists are trying to figure out the next. Is is there anything the average person can do you know we we had a situation on on the left tackle where. They watered to report. So little things going on and the neighborhood they thought things look suspicious they said this doesn't look right but they were afraid to. File reports because they did not want to be called racist. We know we can't. Sacrifice national security on the altar political correctness. One of the biggest cases in this case. The situation was before the shooting were actually. One meet our hot on colleagues had called them a ticking time bomb. And was punished for we have. Islamic advocacy organization like the Council On American Islamic Relations. Who will soon those who are classes and we need to say hey look. This is absolutely out of control if someone is suspicious. They can report we're not going after the police are investigating it and there's nothing there there's nothing there but at least investigate at bats quiet the tragic. That the police are being sued indium. That the taxes claw. Student case. Because the fact that matters foreign country and that may have looked like the and we need to be conscious. You know I remember I was on the air one the Fort Hood story broke and I still watch would watch what we're gonna find out as as we go to on the road we're gonna find out they knew a lot. But they didn't wanted to can replace. The officer they didn't wanna say anything because they weren't too concerned. It would offend the Muslim community and that's exactly what happened. About actually on an aircraft her in the person who called. It out Nadal on a ticking time bomb was. The senior medical officer he had been. Transferred there after having gone through that and after the shooting occurred certainly we have. Inspector generals come to try to talk to them to figure well one what went wrong 01 that he was punished. After raising the red flag and the problem is. We can again. We we can't consistently say this is all just. Suspiciously basis does nothing to do with his on the fact of the matter is. There is a battle interpretation on within Islam has been great deal my time in the Middle East in the Islamic world and irony. A sacrificing the armed security to political correctness. Is that the people who do the most dying in the hands of radical islamists are moderate Muslims themselves. We're not doing them any favors by pride basically biting her lower lip and keep side. Mike wanted to take a break in and hang on and not to come back and talk to your right we'll take a quick break there will be right by Michael Rubin resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. It's 641 and traffic time on WWL. And I'm Bob virtual WWL through waiting for finally Tucker our. Guest the for the remainder of the sent flowers Michael Rubin resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Michael Saeb rough a room and touch screen multi. Just like have their names right about all I don't care. If it was said that if we had been able to investigate. Her FaceBook page. That we might have been able to stopped this whole thing. Are we reaching the point is Americans. That we may just have to give up some of these privacy rights that we hold on to. If if we want. Looked at some of these people. Note I mean the first thing here rob is that anyone who's posting stuff on FaceBook shouldn't have. Any expectation of privacy whatsoever. They other issue that really drives me up the ball is when it comes to work at all and were totally. Despite his trying to position himself as a hero over America right through it no whistle blower whistle blower. Might expose wrongdoing might expose documented to not document dump millions. And then through all the investigation even by the craft not a single incident. RB US government overreach was discovered there are couple cases were National Security Agency folks. Had checked up on their girlfriends and they were fired or disciplined for that but what's really amazing is that checks and balances releasing be working for the notion. That somehow or giving up or civil liberties and support our work it took it right. I don't care about it checked my FaceBook page at all. Our. Another question that that hovered over over a long and in the show of just a little bit here. It'll Donald thought of course made the stomach look the statement that we have to keep no problems from coming into this. Country into week and a better quality of screening them than I've heard some Talking Heads on TV. Saying that that's not the nuts against the constitution. If you are not an American citizen was the constitution still protective. No it absolutely does not I mean. I'm what I'm hopeful that odious I find it counterproductive. When you look at constitutional scholars battalion that what you're saying actually it is unconstitutional in my opinion it's just bad policy and because the moderate Muslims are allies in this and it you're gonna win the battle interpretation. He got out moderates do the winning you can't throw them into the arms hardliners. And India when you read about the moderate Muslims that they are afraid. Very afraid of life is they're afraid that if everybody says boy you know more of the motto. Moderate Muslims those developments that looked. We are against us this is terrible you can do these things were against ices will do whatever we can that help you that they're afraid that something should happen to their of that list. Absolutely in this is that nature dictatorship and this is nature terrorism that's it the guys with the guns that we and it's it's not a ballot box situation. Which is why they need all the more support. But ultimately we need to recognize for fighting the same enemy here. Countering violent extremism by having conferences and throwing money at the State Department isn't gonna work. Ultimately just have to defeat some of these part liners he got that. Quote unquote removed them from the battlefield. Activate euphemistically. Michael got about a minute left what what your. Biggest recommendation be that the aid to fight these terrorist. Ultimately we do need to recognize that we simply aren't able to screen them we need to recognize that there can no be absolutely no say he'd been a wild. And we also have to recognize that the problem is increased inspection be negotiated away. It ideology you know some people say who work in the Middle East wouldn't be a problem. But in 1993 we didn't react to the World Trade Center bombing the first one. And we're here in 1998 in 2000 we didn't react to the USS Cole ever hit in 2001. We got to recognize when they say they want the lack batter the Islamic state flopping over the White House they're coming after when we like it or not got to take the fight to them. And and whether we believe it or not. This is a religious war they thing they they think there are rise in the is jihadist. What one thing and one thing only they wanted to go whether it's country that's Balco. And we have. We have to do if if the league. My personal clearly if I'll use a little a little bit by individual privacy to solve this problem I'm all for. Michael thank you so much for fully and as one of the great discussion of vigilance so much. All right that was Michael Rubin. The resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Now we're gonna throw on our folds open before we go to new and cool EU thing is winning the war on terrorism against terrorist. It is the Americans. And what. What would you be willing to give up what what what would you do if you were the commanders treatment everybody of reprisals Obama if you were the commander and chief. What would yield do.

So much better info we see the meaning the saints can go into Atlanta and kick the falcons and yet IA and I've been thinking about that and I think we can do what they're kind of downtrodden dollar and they've lost the playoff. Chance that they have it was Islam one but it's gone. And we beat them before obeyed him again and Drew Brees you you talk about courage award. We'll material I've had flashing lights that it is painful. It is time that we talked about this yesterday the only way. Two.

To improve this deepens two out of three years have been the worst defense here is there a kind of fell I'm gonna conduct of. They today of your all right so let me get to a couple of touch buses were talking about. So what do you think's what in the war on terrorism but terrorist. War America most Americans think we're losing. Mean just 18%. Isn't as terrible to 18% of Americans surveyed. So as the U both of us allies or Russia all the terrorist would use. 260170. Text via its 7870. All. Bunch of lines open right now if you control right and and when it comes to the president of Troy writes. Which candidate. Would you think would be the best the fight terrorism because after the third gonna have to do. No one Obama go all week and continue to blame it on Obama I've got on the text message writer that says. It's obvious our president is doing not plain and he's telling the American people that wanted to hear truly believe V. Isn't careful I don't believe our president isn't fair I don't. Nobody is doing in the a novel obviously I'd like to see him do more but of the presidential candidates. That are running right now. Which one do you think would be the best to lead our fight against the terrorist. Protect investors about bubbly with that front of those. If you're willing to sacrifice liberty for security that you deserve. Neither Williams the birth to citizens should not have to give up any of our freedoms on this flight once they're gone they never come back. What we're talking about though is that you post something on FaceBook. I'd think that you have. You've given up your right or that that no one has Droid is the other night I I believe we should have the right to do that. I have nothing to hide. On my FaceBook page I have nothing to hide anywhere and at that means a lot of the government to look at these things and weaken it helps some of these attacks. Odd personally and all port to a six year old Waleed seventy. 866. Well we have a number anymore. Right a doubles gold along to some of those in the brain this keeps thinking that way you'd intensity and 87870. Bob excellent for probably talked. Bobbitt delivered Tommy Tucker is its 646 look at who oppose in less than a minute put a lot of read a couple of what text messages. We are definitely winning the war. Okay. Good morning mr. Mitchell Ted crews would be a great president in the fight against Islamic terrorist Obama's just killing time. The path on to the next president. Bob if this is the right Bob. You won't. Not personal back to backs now. Let's see. Obligates levee project where opinion poll question. More Americans and everything we're losing the war on terror what do you think. WWL dot com 29% say America is winning 71% tariffs are willing to go through. Randy Randy who's footing the war on on terrorist right now do you remember you know. Our error word. Okay what makes you say that. I know you're old enough remember the seventies and the eighties when there were black border to terrorist attacks a year and now we got to do remember that week. On and we're gonna lead the onlooker. The next 500 year. Wonder if what if anything in out more could be done. We need to regain a willingness to try Berry. Here Harry Truman were alive today and did what he did. And it won't work do and defeated Japan and Germany. Problem they would try him for war arms. We need to and the political correctness. Column. We enter in what were to leave fire bomb Germany. Multiple times to kill hundreds of thousands of civilians when men women and children. And after earlier that there is that necessary to end the war. On. The upper terror in modern age for a suicide bomber. Neither historical facts undeniable. But the Japanese comma cart because. Right they look they were cracked and airplanes and tore ship in the Pacific. And the best they are not terribly sad what it would cost the mayor and a million children that we had to grade. So used and we should not worry so much about collateral that. Well give me example when we had to Afghanistan. And they'll come across the packet can't answer in Pakistan Afghanistan border killing. What they're growers what we shared the same thing we did in Korea North Korea South Korea we reported deal right now. Until they get farm out you can't call and hear anybody around six months still to vacate. Awe and then in January its deal. Cotchery and appreciate your input thank you because go to Darryl little George Daryl what's your thought who do you think his winning the war on terrorism and week out. Us. Well populated. Them.

Well here's what I was Peters when I was afraid of what's going to happen after all that support him on us that watch. Some other team is going to offer him a job and we gonna have to make him pay him more money indicate that well that we thought that was my biggest fear. The need to do as well and let him run it like. It. And went back Q you know. And then it's excellent signature and Internet. All right dale appreciate who wrote what text message you should not have. You should have zero expectations of privacy on FaceBook the very. Fabric of FaceBook is built around privacy and FaceBook has been criticized for not having an up privacy. Resulted in various changes while. I've been drastic times are beginning to call for drastic measures. And if that means they can go check your FaceBook page and see what you posted and they can catch you doing something you shouldn't be doing.
