51 state department career diplomats critical critique of his syria policy. they advocated for more military force. the president has ruled out any direct u.s. military involvement on the groupd despite saying the assad regime in syria must go. all this happens while the pentagon just con if i weres russian fighter jet bombed rebels in southern syria. that prompted this reaction yesterday from ash carter, who told reporters an attack on forces, no members of the terrorist network, isis. let's bring in general jack dean. he's also a fox news analyst and someone we go to for all things
9:44 am
related to isis and military involvement. i want to ask ask you fist and foremost, mistorically, how have we dealt with russia in the past and how are we toling with them now on the heels of the news that russia b fighter jets have bombed some forces in southern syria. not necessarily targeting isis members at all. >> sure. for almost 50 years, we dealt with russia and the soviet ewan yn. democratic or republican president. didn't back down with them. what we've done since russia is attempting to reemerge and become a world power and the leerd of russia somewhat of a bully and a thug. >> saw that with ukraine and others. >> likes to throw his weight around. the reality is though that this president and those who advise him, have always been paralyzed by the fear of adverse consequences. so as a result of it, this is a
9:45 am
fear escalation. they fear reaction. they do nothing. thus didn't even help the ukrainians, all they wanted was weapons to help. and putin said if you do that, i'm going to escalate and we did nothing. when they came in to syria with their military intervention, limited military intervention, 30 something airplanes, nothing comparable to united states military power. even in the region. the first bombs they dropped were against syrian monitors that were supported by the united states. that was intentional. we should have cratered that runway and tell them there will be no attacks on our forces again. and if so we'll stroi the aircraft sitting on the -- we did not do that. we used rhetoric. we continue to use rhetoric and they continue to bomb and kill the monitors that our cia are armeded. that force by the way, the reason they describe it is
9:46 am
because they've been somewhat effective. >> you talk about criticism, rhetoric as opposed to action. we saw this week that 51 within the state department have gave really a scathing review of the president's directive and involvement in syria or lack there have. what surprised you about hering not only the critique, but the sheer number who spoke out against the president and the administration's reaction because they said on friday and i'm reading a part, that the president has always been clear that he does not see a military solution to the crisis in syria and that maremains the case. doubling down on his stance. >> it's also a false choice about this military solution. i know for a fact, necessary action to enhance his diplomatic play he needs to make. in other words, we have run out of diplomatic options and you can use military power and
9:47 am
action to get that lip dipmatic solution. i know this for a fact because he asked me back in january 2014, what are some options that i could propose within the confines of the white house and national security team. most of those were all rejected. i think this has been festering in the department of state among career professionals for some time. why? 500,000 dead now. 11 million people displaced from homes. these numbers just roll off our mouth. but in terms of dimension, there's four million syrian refugees outside of the country. contributinging to the migration kn flow. when will this stop? i think that's what's happened here. the number is is significant. 51 career professionals. this is not one lert of dedissent and obviously, just o fed up and they know that if you take some limited military action, it's possible, not
9:48 am
definite, but you could get a settlement in syria and stop this human carnage that's taking place. >> yeah, you look at that reaction at the same time, you hear from john brennan, the cia director, who has a completely different vantage point of how we're fighting isis and it really gives you pause with what's going to happen with the rest of the president's term. thauk so much for joining us. really interesting. >> always good talking. >> great conversation. coming up, speaking of russia, there's putin. he's responding to its track and field athlete who banned from the summer olympics in rio. imagine his response. and zero gravity and back to earth after some time on the international space station. ♪ good to be back home again real cheese people know

international olympic officials say they welcome a sweeping ban on russia's track and field athletes from the upcoming summer games in brazil. this is amid a growing scandal over widespread doping in sports specifically among the russian teams but leaders in moscow have vowed to fight what they call an injustice. just because they got caught or because they were doing it in the first place? >> injustice because they say more people are being punished than need to, at least that's what they're officially saying. never before has an entire nation of olympic delegation in a sport been outright banned because of doping. that is exactly what has happened. all of russia's track and field athletes will be banned from the 2016 olympics in rio de janeiro as a result of an unprecedented

9:55 am
>> there is a possibility clean russian athletes will be allowed to participate in rio individually, meaning not for russia or wearing russia's colors. the usa track and field say while they support the decision saying quote, that the continued suspension of the russian federation came after a thorough and fair process, it is the only proper course of action given the compelling and powerful evidence presented to counsel. ultimately counsel chose to act to help rebuild the integrity of the sport and the public trust. there you have it. russia is expected to find some way to appeal or is going to try to. the ioc meets tuesday and hinted more far-reaching punishment could be on the way. >> pretty rich when you hear putin talk about justice and fairness. thanks, brian. still to come, donald
