Host: Martha Raddatz
Lt. Gen. Daniel Bolger (Ret.)
Antonio French – Ferguson Alderman
beheaded another American
Ross: he was a former Army Ranger
who converted to Islam and went back
to the middle east to help people
Ross: even al-Qaeda said he
should be released
Ross: he told his parents if he dies at
least he did it trying to help suffering people
Raddatz: why doesn't this tape show Kassig?
Olsen: maybe he wouldn't cooperate
with his captors
Olsen: the tape has direct
threats against US troops
Raddatz: are they capable of
coming to the homeland?!?
Olsen: well no but we have plenty
of crazy people in America already
Raddatz: who is this British terrorist?
Olsen: no one knows but they're
going to find him
Marquardt: General Dempsey went
to Iraq this week and called ISIS midgets
Marquardt: but ISIS is still attacking Kobani
even though the U.S. bombs ISIS everyday
Raddatz: General you say the U.S.
lost the war on terrorism
Bolger: yes sadly the U.S.
did it all wrong beginning in 2003
Bolger: the terrorists want U.S. troops there
– Iraqis must fight on there own
Ganyard: but we tried for ten years
to train Iraqis to shoot a gun and
they never learned how to do it
Raddatz: some are calling for more
U.S. troops but you call that insane
Bolger: indeed that is absolutely crazy
Raddatz: the military is action-oriented
– they need to fight
Ganyard: yes soldiers by their nature
want to fight but we have to reassess
our entire anti-terror strategy
Raddatz: thanks for coming

Raddatz: oh wow the Ferguson grand
jury is about to come down with
their decision not to indict!
Thomas: there are tensions with the
police in Ferguson and across America
like for example when a cop shot a guy
reaching for his wallet after the officer
ordered him to reach for his wallet
Raddatz: tough call there
Thomas: Blacks are more involved
in crimes as victims and perpetrators
Charles Ramsey: that doesn't justify bias
Raddatz: why is there tension
with communities and police?
French: we need cooperation
or it's bad for everyone
Thomas: police have to make split-second
decisions but they need training
to de-escalate situations
Raddatz: but look at the statistics –
how do you not conclude blacks
are more likely to be criminals
French: what happens with all this
profiling and stereotyping is that
innocent good citizens conclude the
government is not for them but against them
Raddatz: what will happen when
the grand jury decides not to indict?
French: we're asking the police not
to tear gas the entire community
Raddatz: what about outside agitators?
French: regardless we don't police to punish
all protesters for the actions of a few
Raddatz: omg the Keystone pipeline!
Karl: the GOP ran on building a giant
pipeline across America so Canada
could get rich selling oil to China
while polluting the U.S.
Karl: Sen. Mary Landrieu is desperate
to build this pipeline so Louisiana
can refine this Canadian oil
Raddatz: girl is this pipeline ever
going to get built?
Girling: yes we really need this pipeline
so America can refine this Canadian oil
Raddatz: the world is oversupplied
with cheap oil already
Girling: yes but Americans still need
to put gas in their cars and what better
place to get gas than Canada
which is a nice country
Raddatz: but President Obama says
this oil won't go to Americans
but the whole world
Girling: no all this oil will be delivered to the Gulf Coast
Raddatz: then what happens to it?
Girling: it creates 40,000 jobs
Raddatz: I've read it will only create 50 jobs
Girling: that's true
Raddatz: that's not very many jobs
Girling: yes but we will pay property taxes
Raddatz: well I should hope so
Girling: I'm just saying
Raddatz: that doesn't seem like a good
reason to build a massive pipeline
Girling: it's either that or ship by truck or rail
Raddatz: or refine it in Canada or not at all
Girling: that's commie talk
Raddatz: thanks for coming

Raddatz: the President lost in the midterms
but he still will act on immigration!
Obama: I won't have to act if
John Boehner would stop acting
like a dictator and hold a vote!
Avila: Obama may act soon to
let undocumented people stay in America
Boehner: this is wrong way to govern
– the right way is to refuse to hold votes!
Avila: Democrats point out
Regan and Bush granted amnesty
by executive action
