Two US generals under attack.
Not by al-Qaeda but by members of congress.
The generals are hired to assess the danger at the US Mexico border they were called on congress to report their findings to Texas congressman apparently -- light the general's assessment of the scene down the border so the -- who went to their plan B.
Attacked the generals.
Look to -- record.
All -- -- was anecdotal.
I think if I -- done my dissertation or a report.
I got an -- don't you think anybody that would -- this is a Ph.D.
would have done an -- from the report.
Well not all of it out -- PH He had -- six books about 300 scholarly articles so I know a little bit about how to write.
Now that's not how we did it -- wash and to.
These -- is that 23 were here in Washington.
What you call Washington DC a war some.
Well that's just a yes -- no.
It did questions -- never answered with yes from what I guess I'm asking you just I'm not gonna answer quite we have no I think what we're -- okay thanks for everything that we're talking might -- you -- 80000 dollars.
Former military -- taxpayer dollars to make this report is that correct.
We had five people work for months on this report and I assure you you know when He -- -- -- sir I'm sorry I believe I can assure you general it was -- respect general -- -- a -- gentleman -- -- -- and I do think these these -- respected -- -- we -- -- and I respect.
And allow them to answer the question okay let me ask -- -- again.
Were you paid 80000 dollars yes or no bill let me ask you are you suggesting.
That this -- had political or monetary motivation.
If you are sure that is a shame let me let me let me say -- a good general -- -- general husband might current general location of this country was -- on 32 years of service general.
Major general Bob scales joins us and let me be the first to a -- that's.
I -- act and says take yeah I'm really.
Actually ain't and we and yeah I know I know you grew I know general McCaffrey very well.
And -- called -- give information about your report and and it's scandalous -- treated.
-- and I've served over eighty years in the military we've both been shot at many times and so this -- usually expect the you know.
But but in in this case that the shots were more verbal I think that the congressman was.
Really took it took the took a personal attack on both of us and and impugn our integrity and our motive and I think that's what very and I got most upset about if you want to argue -- -- -- -- they even -- -- I'm embarrassed.
You know our music you know what this is you know you guys did a report.
You outfitted tell the report -- it's fair to ask -- questions about it and -- said they had basically submit -- for sale as it did for money -- -- -- that I know -- -- union I've -- a million times and not all about your background.
Leo and for him to talk about an half an -- -- -- -- -- Yeah -- did it was embarrassing and what we wanted to do was to do was to get our message across we didn't -- to go to some.
Sparring contest with congress and then unfortunately that's what -- sort of devolved into we wanted to tell -- tell the tale about.
Mexican narco terrorists who have extended their reach into the United States who have.
Gang member infantryman in a thousand different cities in this country who are.
Who are making somewhere between 28 and 36 billion dollars a year off of this.
And a terrorist groups that are beginning to act less like criminals and more like insurgents military insurgents and this is a very big problem out.
You know we have been down there I've been warned guys down -- by the police found their -- an earlier in the media weren't south Texas and how I -- I don't know how much is exaggerated by the elect people tell us what government but it's hard not to believe that it is a serious problem and open border unknown civil war going on down there the latest set of terrorism plainly that Iraq Iran -- we heard about last week is it.
You know there's something in there I -- the magnitude but to show the disrespect to of two people who had gone down and study with others is just extraordinary yeah.
We had one guy who testified with us doctor Mike Vickers who was a veterinarian a -- of only 7000 citizens and over the years he's -- autopsied -- discovered over 600.
Dead people in -- county.
This is not just incidental these are these are homicides these are people who were left in the desert to die.
Many of them women who are sexually abused I mean this is not just incidental.
Conflict and this is a very very serious affair and most of -- is occurring in the -- populated counties along the Texas border in those empty areas where the narco terrorists are still to be able to invade our country.
I think to congressman who who worm I think it's unbelievably rude -- -- Laredo -- and help passing up.
-- do that to thank exclusive happy.
Harvest chamber of commerce speech you know they wanted to emphasize that the crime is not so bad inner cities and that's not.
Because of the narco terrorists are going into the empty spaces rather go into the -- senator Sharon that would make sense you in the military always go to where the enemy's weakest and in this case it's it's in the it's in those empty spaces between the cities not in the cities and that's the point we try to make them during the hearing so maybe ignorance is a moment.
Could be an image that well wasn't it I'm terribly sorry I know your reputation I know you and I know in general my craft -- -- Jason refs aren't thank you say -- Straight ahead.
