Todd: omg I'm scared of terror!
Johnson: we have no specific crediblethreats to America
Todd: are you sure?
Johnson: we want people to
know we're vigilant
Todd: they shut down Brussels – does that
mean an attack is about to happen here?
Johnson: maybe – if you see something

inexpensive which scares me

they're all socialists anyway

civilians should shoot terrorists

Todd: why can't we just destroy ISIS?
Engel: Paris showed ISIS is a
Engel: ISIS is the most successful
terror group since al-qaeda
French guy: daesh leaves
al-qaeda in the dust!
Engel: they've attacked Russia and France
Putin: we will crush them!
Engel: the United States and Iran
are both attacking ISIS!
Expert: Turkey hates the Kurds
and Saudia Arabia hates Iranians

Todd welcome Leon
Panetta: hi Chuck
Todd: is Obama's plan working?
Panetta: we have the right mission
but we haven't done enough
Todd: oh really?
Panetta: we need to be
much more aggressive
Todd: do we need to what we're doing faster?
Panetta: ISIS is a clear and
present danger to America
Panetta: we need to unify all the
countries fighting ISIS
Todd: problem solved
Panetta: we to do more bombing
and arm the Sunnis
Panetta: frankly we need more
U.S. troops on the ground
Todd: should we have bombed Assad
and armed Syrian rebels?
Panetta: Assad is the primary villain and
so is Iran and also Hezbollah and also
Malaki and the U.S. should have created
a moderate force in Iraq
Brokaw: Obama is weak and Republicans
are crazy – what should we do?
Panetta: the U.S. has to lead!
Panetta: the U.S. should have stronger leadership!
Todd: U.S. should be strong!
Panetta: we're going to have put in
thousands of ground troops in Iraq and Syria
Todd: uh oh
Panetta: we have to invade and occupy
Iraq and Syria!
Cooper: do you really think we can
unify the U.S. and Russia and Iran?
Panetta: of course not
Panetta: we should invoke Article 5
of the NATO charter
Todd: was that in 50 Shades of Gray?
Panetta: we have the same team
we had in Libya
Todd: which went so well
Panetta: I don't trust Russia or Iran
Todd: what's worse – ISIS or Assad
Panetta: we should wage war on ISIS and
Assad at the same time – he's a war criminal
and they're unpleasant in the extreme
[ break ]
Todd: Obama is tone-deaf but
Republicans are lunatics
Trump: I want mass surveillance of Muslims!
Cruz: we're not attacked by Presbyterians!
Carson: refugees are rabid dogs!
Todd: It's not easy being a muslim is it?
Iftikhar: Muslims are snooped and
threatened all over America
Enetekar: that's par for the course since 9/11
Trump: in Jersey City thousands
cheered on 9/11
Bush: Islam is peace!
Rubio: all Muslims are like Nazis
Bush: there is no clash of civilizations
Carson: refugees are like rabid dogs!
Bush: we respect all faiths
Todd: please praise George W. Bush for me
Iftikhar: who cares – he would be
shouted out of the party now
Iftikhar: are they going to put Kareem
Abdul Jabbar and Muhammad Ali and
Dave Chapelle in this database?
Todd: is it a database of Most
Todd: oh too bad
Iftikhar: are they going make us
wear the Star of David?
Todd: probably not
Iftikhar: how about a crescent?
Todd: only if Trump becomes President
but that's like a one in four chance
Parker: why don't you ask them to
tone down the rhetoric?
Iftikhar: how about good decent
people speak out against this?
Parker: I'm just saying you should
meet with people who hate you
Todd: how a public forum like my show?
Iftikhar: will this forum take place
in Muslim internment camps?
Fournier: why don't people put the
flag of Mali in the twitter avatar?
Iftikhar: because Mali is full black people
so Americans don't give a shit
Fournier: but is it really just racism –
after I didn't do it and I can't be racist
Iftikhar: media let these weirdos go one
about rabid dogs and special IDs and Muslim
databases and then say 'both sides do it'
Brokaw: this is really Obama's fault for
not educating people about his faith
Cooper: there is no link between Syria refugees
and Paris and the
media doesn't report on that
Brokaw: they are orphans because
of Obama's bombs
Fournier: we are one domestic attack from
a total unraveling of this country
Iftikhar: 30% people think Islam
should be illegal! Wake the fuck up!
Todd: how do we combat that
kind of thinking?
Iftikhar: if only there was so medium
that could reach millions of people
Todd: oh I get it – you're talking
about the Internet
Todd: the US has taken in 120,000 Iraqi refugees and 785,000 refugees have
been admitted since 9/11 and only
a dozen were possible terrorists
Todd: The U.N. referred at 23,000 refugees and the U.S. interviewed 7,000 and took
only 2,000 Syria refugees
Todd: the real problem is visa waiver program –
basically anyone from Europe can
come in no question asked
Todd: all the 9/11 hijackers all
came in on a visa
Todd: welcome Governor Kasich
Todd: you want to promote judeo-christian values – do you hate other religions
Kasich: no I only mean respecting
life and women and freedom and
all that Christian stuff
Todd: I see
Kasich: you're clearly a stupid person Chuck
Todd: i've heard that
Kasich: we need to win the battle of ideas!
Kasich: Western civilization is under attack –
they want to destroy our way of life
Todd: that's not very nice
Kasich: science and women's rights
are under attack!
Todd: are we talking about ISIS
or the Republicans?
Kasich: we believe in life and they
believe in death
Todd: go on
Kasich: the west represents freedom
and progress and the East is a death cult
Todd: so it's a war of East vs West?
Kasich: Musims and Arabs used to believe
in science and now they believe in murder
Todd: at least it's an ethos
Kasich: we need to work with moderates
like the Saudis
Todd: good plan
Kasich: we have to stop the radicalization
of people and get them to embrace
civilization and the western ethic
Todd: what's wrong the GOP – I mean
with the talk about rabid dogs and
Kasich: I'm in a war with Donald Trump!
Kasich: I condemned him!
Todd: well he's beating you
Kasich: no he's not?
Kasich: I'm in a twitter war
with Donald Trump!
Todd: Bratton wants to stop people
from terror watch list buy a gun?
Kasich: we can't do that because
guns make you safe
[ break ]
Todd: so do we think of Kasich?
Brokaw: he doesn't hate Muslims
so he will be attacked by the right wing
Todd: that checks out
Brokaw: Indonesia has some very nice
Muslims and some lovely beaches
Todd: I've heard that
Brokaw: Donald Trump is lying about
thousands in Jersey City cheering the
towers falling down
Cruz: Mr. President insult me to my face!
Todd: that's batshit insane
Parker: that was a very smart move
Parker: it's playground swagger
Cooper: the whole fucking GOP primary
campaign is lies and childish swagger
Todd: omg a Democrat won the
Governor's race in Louisiana
Fournier: sure but he was pro-gun pro-life
veteran up against a guy
who went to hookers
Todd: good point Ron
Fournier: we as a people need to stop demonizing
each other and
also our leaders are bad
Brokaw: Paris shows we are at war!
Todd: it's like 1941 all over again!
Brokaw: we have going to have to re-invade and re-occupy Iraq and we're not going to get a lot of help from Europe this time
Todd: didn't France just declare war on ISIS?
Fournier: forget it he's tolling
Cooper: nobody leave al qaeda in a corner!
Parker: if we re-invade Iraq we're just
going to create more radicals in Paris
and not the cool kind with the
berets and fancy cigarettes
Fournier: should we draft young
people like we did in WWII?
Todd: and that's another
episode of Meet The Press
