8:13 pm

8:14 pm
full account of what to lease here for another 24 hours -- took place here for another 24 hours. the level of chaos is unimaginable. among the european countries, i would say the french are best prepared to deal with something like this. their intelligence services are probably the best terms of being on top of terrorism, and yet this has occurred. it is going to take time, and is going to take the settling down of situation -- it is going to take the settling down of this situation to look at the casserley numbers, the forensics -- casualty numbers, the forensics. isis seems to be the perpetrator. the fingerprints look that way. we need here from someone in the terrorist world about what happened. i say we having other 24 hours before the facts come in. cory: how you figure out, pieced
8:15 pm
together what has happened? you have been involved in many times in the past in trying to piece this together. i know you were involved in the sordid attempt to down plane over detroit -- thwa rted attempt to down a plane over detroit. how do you deal with what happened? mclaughlin: you look at this and faces. -- in phases. people look at everything they can see and collect at this moment. people look back at their files and what they can archive on the intelligence side. sometimes, you learn a lot by looking back and finding things, that now that you know that this has happened, you feel relief, and you start to fill in the picture and see information that
8:16 pm
did not seem significant at the time. chances are they have been following people in france, surveilling them. they will go through all of that here andat did we miss among the things that we know, what do we know? referring back to the city i to, that was an attempt figure out-- it took us a good three months of, i would say archaeological work, going back through all the files, talking to dozens of people who had seen materials. all of that takes place. i would say, within, that is the long term. within, four or five days, the
8:17 pm
french will have a good idea of what happened here. alix: also joining us is ian bremmer. ian, the next question, what happens in the next 24 hours? an: the biggest thing, as we unpacked, and the french people mourn, i expect an enormous international outpouring of sympathy. president obama has not spoken with francois hollande because they are in crisis mode. they have failed states across the middle east greeting millions of refugees, only 6% of syrian refugees have made their way to europe. they have overly found isis members hidden on boats coming over. cannot look at the economic
8:18 pm
growth you are seeing, you cannot see the complete absence of any solution to respond to the environment that these people are experiencing, both in europe and outside, and not recognize that this is not coincidence. there will be more violence in these countries. there will be more backlash. we have already seen, there has there are regional .lections in december they will not delay them. not just in france, but in other countries.
8:19 pm
yes, you look at how they could've had attacks like this, and without it -- without any advanced awareness, that is greatly disturbing. the broad question we have to ask is what does the european union look like? what does it stand for? what kind of governments or they can have -- are they going to have? how democratic are they? alix: ian bremmer. by the way, back in january of 2015, when he published his top list for 2015, he listed the politics of europe as the number one risk facing the globe. i turned a mark crumpton who has the headlines in a recap of everything that's happened up to this point. mark: we like to update our audience around the world and on
