Senate -- -- thank you Greta.
I -- little bit of a dust up between them the White House and some members hey -- it's -- -- about what to do about detainees who had some contact with al-Qaeda.
What do you want it.
Well we want to make sure that detaining anyone who is apprehended no matter where.
That is after a thorough investigation.
Is viewed as enemy combatant and that means that they are attempting.
Are conspiring to have inflict damage or.
Commit acts of espionage and the United States.
That it clear parameters that they are indeed members of al-Qaeda or affiliated organizations.
That they are not entitled to Miranda rights or civil trial.
And that child who makes that decision have been if you take -- differences.
The the guy and the plane the underwear bomber.
Is that out here at least took several days to -- tracked down what to be now the news already in US -- -- -- -- ran dies out so.
Yeah you know.
-- -- -- There's a thorough investigation conducted by the -- that's the FB IC IA and the military.
And -- determination is made after a thorough investigations of the circumstances.
Of the apprehension.
And also that individual has a right to have paid the -- if he's an American said he or she is an American citizen to go before court.
You know -- for -- in order that they may have be released but have no doubt the United States Supreme Court in Hamdan said there is no bar.
For the United States government.
And -- any of its citizens as an enemy combatant.
And that was the case in World War II with people like Tokyo rose.
It's been true throughout our history.
Of American citizens who engaged in activities that would inflict.
Harm or damage the United States of America.
I guess there's a little bit difference between into what situation -- the FBI was yanked an investigation profoundly people who listened to wiretaps and then make the plan in the -- movement an -- -- they make the Boston restaurant.
The other instance I guess is that is the one where you have the underwear bomber raced on a plane attempt to blow up the -- arrested right there.
And the investigation take several days and -- can't just you can't sit -- Brandeis and we can't just can't can't all of while that speed gotten.
You can hold them while they will who without recognizing in this -- -- suspicion there are a member of al-Qaeda or affiliated organization that would take about.
Five to 102 syndication and -- -- -- it was a person who wanted to inflict damage.
And actually blow up an airplane and kill a hundred or so people.
-- -- -- in favor of make sure the nation is really safe.
But the question of the Miranda rights.
And you do that investigation short -- and -- made to simulate but on that one.
OK let's think.
I think that your for -- -- -- should be held and ascertained as to whether -- member of al-Qaeda or affiliated organization.
And if they are not then obviously than they're given their Miranda rights and there.
The rights of every citizen.
But in our history for example Tokyo rose -- war to -- there have been.
And had numerous cases of American citizens who have aided and abetted the enemy.
And they have been treated as -- Enemy combatant but here's the -- promised that the Supreme Court says the -- -- in custody.
Out -- costing me as a person no longer believes he's created to go.
You must -- as a person you can't that he can't -- dollar -- a camera set this -- -- We're gonna go investigate to see whether it's al-Qaeda it's it it it has to be done concurrent with the -- Had no a person can -- -- there formally charged there can be an investigation period of investigation.
What the circumstances contain can.
Surrounding the alleged criminal act.
Well and it I would never -- on -- -- -- epic -- economists at -- Obama's economic policies have failed working Americans.
I take you agreement that senator.
-- -- I totally agree and the fact is that when you look at any indicator of things have gotten worse no matter whether it be.
Now homes underwater since he took since President Obama took office whether it -- unemployment whether it be any measurement.
That things have gotten worse since the president and I states took office few not to mention -- burgeoning debt and deficit.
He did it his idea was the estimates.
And studios that want.
And to like outbreak which Yahoo! at least I -- redouble our regulators would love -- -- saying -- really tired -- not -- when I wanna expand the biggest city.
He does his own -- bring -- present on the house and senate.
I think the house and senate are complicit but the fact is that.
The whole -- -- an argument for Dodd-Frank was one reason primarily and one reason alone.
That never again would in the institution.
Be too big to fail.
-- the -- require.
American taxpayers dollars to bail them out and keep them in business.
Now no one.
No no matter where you are -- put in that.
Believes that these institutions.
Are too big to fail they are too big to fail and they still -- and by the way this latest information about.
Billions of dollars we're given to these major financial institutions for free.
While they make record profits meanwhile our community banks sick like in my state of Arizona who really do the landing to the homeowners and small business people.
-- didn't get any money.
And they're going under and meanwhile record profits.
Declared by these major financial institute institutions.
On Wall Street.
And I understand why people are angry like Tea Party is angry -- other Americans are angry.
The Pakistan -- senior military army official.
Has made a statement he said that the the strike last weekend by NATO which -- six Pakistani soldiers were killed.
Busy deliberate act of aggression.
Of course that's.
Totally incorrect but our simplicity.
And our sorrow goes out to the families of those 24 Pakistani soldiers who were killed in this -- One call -- taxes -- situation.
And there have been many other -- who have lost their lives in areas near the Afghan border in fights with Tyler -- and other.
But the fact insults.
And this is must be a basis of our relationship with Pakistan.
That there are members of the ISI.
There intelligence services.
That are actively supporting.
The Taliban and al-Qaeda.
And other terrorist organizations.
In Afghanistan that are killing Americans what do we should know and I just trying to finish with -- when the point.
Among other things there are two major fertilizer factories.
That -- a result of their product he is.
Resulting in the production of IUDs.
That are in Afghanistan that are killing and wounding American soldiers that is unacceptable situation.
It is horrible it is getting worse -- having a relationship material let Ari back relationship and we had acted -- worse is even a bigger compress so what are we -- I think we have to gauge our support and we have sent billions to Pakistan.
Directly related to their degree of cooperation.
As far as the problems that I just outlined to you.
We -- nothing less -- American taxpayer certainly nothing less that and to the families.
The men and women who are serving over there in harm's way.
But for ten years we had no relations with Pakistan that didn't work out.
Pakistan is a nuclear as a country with nuclear inventory -- -- dangerous.
And also we are dependent to a large degree on the supply lines through Pakistan into Afghanistan.
For the supplies that are necessary to keep our fighting force.
All the -- very important.
And they also have to play in our determination.
So we have -- measured approach make sure the pakistanis know what we expected them set up guide posts and and goals that that we would expect them to -- And make judgments accordingly and it has to be done she.
Mean meaning we have a defense authorization bill on the floor.
We have a provision.
Basically to assess the situation.
As -- Pakistani corporations concerned.
And I think you're gonna see appropriations bills in the future.
Gauge that as well and look we just I.
When the hardest things that any of us do that members of congress is to call a family members of those who have -- lost their lives and Afghanistan and back.
This makes it even more tragic if those young people are the victim of something that was exported.
War killed by the racial -- that efforts.
Organizations such as that kind network that is supported by the Pakistan intelligence service.
