Was also a member of the commission that investigated the 9/11 attacks.
Joins us on the Don thank you so much for being here.
What would you change.
What would you fix they -- what you know right now.
Well first of all.
There's one big fundamental elephant in the room here that it underlies all of these.
I have we -- -- big numbers of terrorist attack.
Major Don -- -- but it and so forth and that one big elephant in the room.
Is this administration has fundamentally change the approach.
To counter terrorism.
21 of law enforcement.
In this -- statement on this the most recent one.
We won't rest until we bring these people suggested.
This administration views everything as if it's it's purely -- course.
And that -- the way we the people want no fly list.
You can't put someone on that -- I listed these because they had the Islamist extremists.
You have to have evidence that bad is evidentiary test.
And that could be enforced in the court of law -- -- -- simply.
As putting somebody on a no fly let.
And of course now John we have a situation where the guy responsible for this is lawyering up and -- apparently.
Our attempts to get information which it first we're somewhat successful are now being negated because a guy's got -- telling him to shut up.
Yeah I mean this is sure a third and it just shows a huge night -- -- On the part this administration and the political -- -- They did not want.

Or close it is it's Alice in Wonderland abuses lunacy.
Or John close Guantanamo Bay and bring the prisoners to Illinois and then shipped some detainees back to Yemen.
On that note does that mean -- think that during this administration's term that nothing will change and we it should expect.
To see more events like mess.
I would hope.
Dead dead there enough people in this administration.
That are not sure ideologues so that they'll come to their senses and city.
That they have embarked it is country.
On a wrote to catastrophe was spared the radical change in.
Counterterrorism policy which really.
-- sports moral right to the terrorists then to our own people I mean if it Kenyans that could you believe it is that there.
Currently court marshaling or Navy SEALs because that they had to punch.
-- they capture terrorists well they were capturing him.
And so -- here being court martial in the meantime.
Khalid Sheikh Mohamed if it gets more right -- that he'll do.
But to have a bolt up the civil trial criminal trial in New York City.
