-- the follow the money out Arab ball into the most.
The world's most dangerous terrorists are dead tonight and the Blogosphere is still with the usual liberal soul searching over whether or not the killings were justified ought to bad.
I only have one question.
Should we have killed them both or -- boarded them first figure was the FOX & Friends Gretchen Carlson this morning.
Let me ask you this would you be in the camp of having a rather captured him.
Rather than killed him we talked to -- lieutenant colonel earlier who would've liked to have captured him to trying get more information.
But then I brought up the fact that under this administration it seems that we don't.
Prosecutor asked the same questions that we might have under the Bush Administration so what -- we get anything out of them anyway if we captured -- Good and now is former CIA operatives officer mr.
Peter brooks and computer there's there's a lot of discussion all day long going back and forth.
You know this -- this new drone strike -- intelligence followed by drone strikes.
Our we're killing the bad guys actually killing the bag -- but are we losing the opportunity get morning Intel before.
Or -- not killing -- guys.
There's a lot of questions here obviously the operational planning aspect is.
You know do you know where He is can you capture him is He changing locations every hour I mean this may have been an opera an opportunity window of opportunity to get rid of him He may be -- act had bid to have just been thinking about or be involved and operational plan that He was going to hat and this was our last opportunity so there's a lot of things that we don't know right now out of the Pentagon intelligence community about why they decided to take the shot today or yesterday so there's that -- easy to decide that of course if you get -- hold them there are other questions you know once again you may there are risks of going into a foreign country perhaps in hurting counterintelligence.
Counterintelligence and counterterrorism cooperation with forever you know so there's a lot of things got -- -- this -- explain to our audience the difference between counter terror.
-- -- terrorism is obviously directed towards the terrorists.
Counterinsurgency could include terrorists but it also could include some sort of armed force that is uprising against the government so when you're talking about and in al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
In many cases you talking about a carry -- an insurgent force that is operating against -- government but is also using terrorist tactics and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is certainly terrorist organization but they're also involved in trying to bring down the government's -- some ways they're both count -- insurgents and they are terrorists.
Our take a listen to the overall this morning that same interview that Gretchen Carlson.
Do -- and in Kilmeade where we're involved with this morning with -- Not one of dead -- he's out now you want to do a -- in a dead -- come amid -- that total -- -- will kill them.
And then let them pick someone else and let him tremble every -- here's the drone engine up in the sky.
This approach to tell us -- CIA.
It was likely the the operations head of this -- what does this this.
Whereas the CIA and they told just to go -- get these guys have better -- give him give him out of our way.
Well this probably Cheney command that there involved with first -- have to get the intelligence on him.
Is this on while lock key is He moving in this direction is the in this car you -- do we they probably wanna make sure that they're going after the right people.
Then there's probably some fall back to two Langley Virginia to say hey we think we've got out while locking in a car convoy can we take him out.
And then they may even actually call the White House situation room and maybe go up to the president.
So that it's not quite clear exactly how this was executed but it probably wasn't just a you know at the top at the tactical level.
That they decided this even though He was.
Certainly somebody we really wanted to get so I imagine it probably was some coordination back through Washington -- that's Peter Brookes former CIA operations officer thank you very much sir.
