heather: only two months after the tragic death of americans to a suicide bomber in syria alleged terrorists who may be linked to the attack of been captured. rob: this after the surrender 3000 isis fighters in syria. are these signs that the war on terror has been working. here to weigh in is aaron cohen of special operations counter terrorists. this is a huge development. they have written these guys into a small sliver of land in the euphrates river and seems like it is about to end here. don't you think? >> i do. what we are seeing is the systematic shutdown of isis.
2:13 am
this administration with the policies crafted for counterterror operations are working. we are seeing less territory held by isis, they are down to a tiny little slice of land, who knows how long they will have it before they are eradicated out of that space and disappear back into the crowd which is what terrorists do and we have to keep squeezing the last pieces of the bumble. it is a significant to almost 0 reduction of isis which is a extremely positive step operation. heather: down to a little slice of land and these maps show that. you can see this is syrian territory under isis a couple days ago and under isis today, there you have it. i'm curious what you think.
2:14 am
when donald trump announced this, isis was defeated, a lot of people did not agree with that decision. he came back and said we are going to leave a small group. do you think that was the right move? >> the reason why is donald trump pulling out of troops out of syria didn't mean he was going to completely pool out of syria. the small number of troops he is leaving was a special operations contingent of advisors and mentors building up the military defense forces that were working against isis. those highly trained pockets of green berets and navy seals and delta force operators know how to operate and get much more done, and promise unconventional warfare and those unconventional warfare operations bolster the forces on the ground being led
2:15 am

2:16 am
isis? >> that is the million-dollar question. when you take out the armed wing of the terror organization they go into the clouds and what we are seeing, green beret and intelligence assets, these are military personnel, this is a military terror attack against us -- with regards to militants who start disappearing and these numbers, 20,000 which is pretty accurate, special forces command oh, providing real-time information and then really well-trained american mentors on
2:17 am
the ground with the syrian defense forces. to create so much fear in those neighborhoods similar to israel and certain parts of the west bank and gaza. it becomes a game of fear and our job is to put so much fear in those crowds, they better be careful. heather: we want your opinion. iran is calling the sanctions a crime against humanity, building two new nuke sites, what do you think of that? >> only the iranian's comfort into sewers and expect to go anywhere. for some reason, i give him credit but the president of iran thinks they can push this into international courts. and controlled by those in iran,
2:18 am
the islamic controlled state. it is laughable and the reason why, trying to develop two nuclear sites. crimes against humanity focus from the international courts that iran and multiple countries, 160 counties including the un and nato, never going to happen. and taking tools away. and nuclear facilities, used against -- >> proving the administration right in the decision to remove the iranian -- 18 minutes after the hour. after 17 years behind bars former american taliban fighter john walker supports extremists so why is he about to be set free? the dangerous precedent this could set. jillian: alexandria ocasio cortez in a bit of hot water, the quiet move that could mean

>> alexandria ocasio cortez is the face of the democratic party. rob: what does it mean is 2020 approaches? thank you for coming on. you hear a lot of aoc. is she the resulting vote? >> definitely. if you spend time on college campuses as it is not a huge surprise the young people favor socialism more than power players like nancy pelosi. especially since 2016 a lot of young professor voters feel disenfranchised by how the dnc treated bernie sanders and that divide has grown more stark since 2016 which makes conditions perfect for the socialist takeover of the democratic party. jillian: is it because of the policies? do you think young people like socialism or do you think they just find a young person in aoc that they feel they can listen to versus nancy pelosi who has been around the block for a while? >> it is a little bit of both. aoc has the power to generate

rob: donald trump was an answer to people's frustrations with politics in general and congress can't get anything done and i think there is a popularity people like aoc, the same thing, watch the standard issue politicians not get a lot done for the last 25 or 30 years. >> exactly. young people are dissatisfied with the status quo in the democratic party just like people were dissatisfied with the status quo of republicans and that is how we got trump. a recent poll said 49% of young people would prefer to live in a socialist country and it seems a lot of democrats especially moving into 2020 are racing to the left to see who can be more left, more democratic socialist than the other but what is going to be the challenge is once they get that democratic nomination for president they are going to have to sway moderate voters to their own side and away from trump and that will be a real challenge after moving so far to the left in these primaries.
