Welcome to foxnews.com.
Live -- Mike Tobin is -- first time we have ever done this webcast out of Chicago.
So it's very special that you're with us here today brought the subject matters a ran their progress on the nuclear Iran nuclear weapons -- progress and hold nuclear ambition.
What they are doing in other countries not just their neighboring countries but how they are extending their reach.
Two countries here in Mexico South America a secret flight they've got operating.
Allegedly anyway -- the reason we're doing -- out of Chicago is simply because I'm based out of Chicago I pitched the show and it's like cheaper for us to do show from Chicago.
That it is from anywhere else of that seems that we're talking about Iran from Chicago.
That's why we're doing it.
-- the first guy I wanna bring -- senator Mark Kirk from Illinois.
You may not know this about senator Mark Kirk you may pay a lot of attention to his work as a legislator.
But He has extensive military background in -- he's -- naval reserve intelligence commander.
The first member of congress I believe to serve -- an active combat zone or in the danger zone since 1942.
And I just got back from serving this summer in Afghanistan.
I believe for the third time and senator -- -- us.
What's great to have you on board here and I wanna get your.
As an intelligence officer from Iran -- from Afghanistan and I initially wanted to talk with you.
About Iran but something called might hear this afternoon the president.
When He was talking about Pakistan's.
I SI He said no doubt Pakistan intelligence services have connections with some individuals that the US finds.
Troubling and I marry that up with your speech in one -- -- pulled out of the last speech I read from you saying many Americans died in Afghanistan.
Because of Pakistan's.
Now that's a really bold statement.
Us explain what you recover oil what -- mean it.
Pakistan's ISI is the principal organizer.
And protector of a terrorist organization called the hi Connie network.
That Connie network is now built around the the son of the founder sir Roger Connie.
It's become the number one threat to to -- admitting women in uniform serving the United States and two Afghans.
And that conducts operations.
I'll cross that eastern Afghanistan.
Far more dangerous and far more numerous -- the -- So what is the hug Connie network all about a lot of times these -- -- just come up as gun runners and thugs.
They get -- up political connections in LA and not take off in that direction what's the goal of -- network.
It's based on a family in Miriam shocked.
They initially got their start -- Jihad during the anti Soviet operations.
They act in the -- occupied AM ambiguous positions I with the fall of the column bond.
-- now have become the number one opponents of America NATO and the Afghan government.
They're entirely protected by Pakistan's ISI.
Pakistan's civilian government has no control over this relationship.
And -- yes the ISI has decided to.
The throw Pakistan in with a terrorist organization and that terrorist organization is directly responsible for the murder of Americans.
And ironic get at best because the US taxpayer provided Pakistan with a look over a billion dollars in assistance last year and this time of deficits and debt I think we auto disgust.
Reducing military aid to Pakistan.
Now that's interesting that you say that because now we've heard you we've heard admiral Mullen and we've heard the president.
It come out publicly saying -- saying you better watch out you better control your ISI and we've known for a long time that the ISI metals they created the Taliban in the first place.
But -- my question to you.
Is why go public now are you trying to send a message to the Pakistan He said that we might just turn around and support support India your arch -- I think so I think first of all in times of deficits and debt.
I don't think we can afford substantial military aid to Pakistan anymore especially since they're -- -- side supports terrorist organization this directly involved in the deaths of Americans servicemen and women.
I think that unfortunately the S civilian government of Pakistan is not really in charge and has no really authority over this same group.
And third as the United States leaves Pakistan.
We have a tough choice to make.
Do we let every meeting -- at their lead Afghanistan to try as we leave Afghanistan do we do we let everything fall apart.
Do we let the ISI economy's turned it back into a terror base for Jihad.
Against Europeans and Americans.
Or do we enter into partnership with the rising superpower of the subcontinent India.
Who not only has the will but the finance -- -- means.
To support an Afghan government committed against terror.
And I think we say back to the ISI your worst nightmare is now coming true we are going to enter into military alliance with India.
Because we cannot afford to see used to create a terror state in Afghanistan.
That would threaten a second.
