>> donald trump shifted focus dramatically last night appearing to blame hillary clinton for iran's execution of a nuclear scientist. trump did not provide any evidence. he tweeted "many people are saying that the iranians killed a scientist who helped the u.s. because of hillary clinton's hacked emails." iran's government announced sunday that sh sharam amiri was executed after spying for the u.s. amiri defected to america in 2009 but decided to retu iran the next year. spokesman said trump is lying saying many people are saying they are equals. i made this up. dozens of national security and foreign policy experts warn donald trump could be "the most reckless president in american history." the group of 50 republicans signed an open letter yesterday vowing not to vote for trump. they include former directors of the cia and national intelligence, plus two former homeland security secretaries. in a statement, trump called the group "nothing more than the
>> deputy director michael morell endorsed hillary clinton in friday's "new york times." the former cbs news contributor called trump "a threat to our national security." i spoke with morell last night on my pbs program. so tell me about why you felt compelled to change where you were, contributor to cbs, on public boar director and deputy director of the cia, a man who gained increasing respect for his voice, because of the access to media, to say i'm going in a different direction? >> two things, i think, brought me to the decision to write the op-ed. one was a growing belief that donald trump, mr. trump, i don't
to our national security as commander in chief. he has said things on the campaign trail that have assisted our adversaries, that have assisted vladimir putin, that have assisted isis, and then the second was, i've known hillary clinton a long time, and i felt that some of the perceptions that are out there about her are just not true, and so putting both of those reasons together, i decided to speak out. and one of the things, through this, and i was actually writing the op-ed and talking to people about my views is that there were many people who share my views. there are many people who share what i wrote, in that op-ed, but they're afraid to speak out. they're afraid of being attacked. they're afraid of the republican party not being with them down the road, right? i felt afraid of not speaking
consequences of not speaking out, and i think that serious republicans of which there are many need to think about the consequences of not speaking out. >> he also criticized trump's relationship with russia's president. >> here's what i would like to see him do. i would like to see him stand up tomorrow and denounce putin's military incursion into ukraine. i'd like to see him denounce putin's annexation of crimea. i'd like to see him denounce putin's assistance to the rebels in eastern ukraine that resulted in the shootdown of the malaysian airliner. i'd like to see him renounce what putin is doing in syria, supporting a butcher and a dictator. i'd like to see him just stand up and denounce putin, and i'll tell you that, at the end of the day, putin would have more respect for him than he does
russian federation. >> unwitting agent of the russian federation, recruited by putin. that's why he's taken the positions he's taken. >> morell talked about what he'd personally like to see on it do syria to end the civil war there. >> when we were in iraq, the iranians were giving weapons to the shia militia, who were killing american soldiers. the iranians were making us pay a a price in syria. we need to make the russians pay a price. the other thing i want to do, i want to go after those things that assad sees as his personal power base. i want to scare assad. i want to destroy his presidential aircraft on the ground. i want to destroy his presidential helicopters. i want to make him think we're coming after him, right >> i'm not advocating assassinating him. i'm not advocating that.
he thinks is his power base, right, and what he needs to survive. i want him to think about this is not going to end well for me. >> what he is saying there is that he would like to see this done on the ground by our allies, the people who are in opposition to the assad government, that they ought to be doing more to make the russians fear, the iranians fear and assad fear. >> i remember after reading michael the time bad ass because he has the credentials to back up all the things he said. >> it shows you someone involved with the cia the mind-think, the sense of how he sees the world and as he said, there are many others like him. >> you wonder how much that resonates with people out there when they hear from him. >> i think so, too. team usa begins day four of the rio games, after winning several more medals, go usa. the united states leads all countries with 19 overall

gwyneth paltrow and jennifer aniston. i thought what a bad case of chickenpox but it looks like it works. but what is it? >> cupping is a technique that's been around for thousands of years. it's documented in egypt. ancient egypt and greece and other civilization. it's now being used around the world. we're seeing it more in our western culture. basically it's taking cups that action like suction cups. placing them in the body, usually the back or stomach. it takes five to 20 minutes. either using heat or a pump. you create a suction and that pulls up the capillaries, the small blood vessels which dilate and even break and that's what causes the bruises that we see. the goal is to alleviate pain and treat a lot of other disorders. and in addition in chinese medicine it's to improve the
your life force. >> but does it work, help you to perform betsy. >> okay, well we don't have a lot of high-quality scientific evidence to prove it at all. in many cases it could be a placebo effect. first of all, you're creating localized inflammation. that can be the immune system. you're also system that could release pain or endorphins. and release toxins and help cell repair and emphatic flow. >> any other way to do this? >> well, if you like it, it's like a sensation on your skin. >> it's mostly considered --

and "the new york times" said the way to ease pedestrian traffic on the brooklyn britain. they've turned to times square in the sky. more than 13,000 pedestrians and cycles cross it on a typical day. building the old one is now being considered. we're approaching the 15th anniversary of the september 11th attacks. there has not been another one like that but the remaining. a poll taken in orlando found that two-thirds of americans feel a terror attack is very or somewhat likely in the next few months. author steven brill with an estimated trillion-dollar state built since 9/11 in a magazine of the atlantic entitled are we any safer. we'd like to welcome back steven brill back to studio 57.
well, we're not safer, we've done a lot of things to make us safer. there are tens of thousands of men and women who make up every morning in the last 15 years doing yeoman's work to try to keep us safer. but the kinds of threats that we faced on 9/11 have expanded and have multiplied. in part because we went into iraq and -- you know -- >> let's talk about the threat and what we can do to make us safer. >> well, the kind of orchestrated threat that i write about the bio terror threat. the threat of a dirty bomb where someone can go into a hospital and fuel some radiological material very easily and mix it with a stand explosive, and create a bomb that causes radiation contamination that will scare people. and scare the country so much that we may evacuate -- have to
something like that. that's the kind of orchestrated threat. lone wolf who can go into a gun store, uniquely, in this country, and buy an assault rival and then shoot up a shopping mall or theater. and if he yells out an impression, in arabic, we assume that's a terror attack. and itca than what has sadly become the attack that happens in this country with assault weapons. >> that's what will be borne out that more people will be killed by assault weapons than they will by terrorism? >> but terrorism is about fear. >> right. >> and that's what makes it such a force in this country. and such a force to contend with. and it makes the politics of terror dangerous for anybody.
number one, it's 20,000 words, you did a lot of work on this piece. but what's pass mafascinating t me is how you compared september 10th 2001 and after that. you said john ashcroft had -- >> the attorney general had rejected a request from the fbi to increase their antiterror branches. and the fbi officials testified in congrth biggest terrorism threat in the united states was from animal life activists. >> that's peta? >> right. >> and on september 11th, you'll remember, the president was reading to school children in an elementary children in florida. and ashcroft was on his way reading to school children in milwaukee. so that was a different time. this is now 15 years of what i call the september 12th era. and it's been a difficult time.
hats off to the people who wake up every day. the department of homeland security. and the tsa who, you know, we love to ridicule and make fun of who have been obsessed with keeping us safe. and the only time we notice them is if there's an attack or if they do something stupid. >> you're very complimentary about job. the bush administration and obama administration did a good job, from that day, september 10th when we were all asleep. >> you've all written this idea of never again which makes people feel safe is not realistic? >> right. it's a promise that donald trump is making. it's a promise that president bush made after 9/11.
the president would want to reassure the country of that but it's totally unrealistic. but the idea that somebody can say i'm running for president and i'm going to declare war on islam. and the day i take office all of this is going to stop, it's just ridiculous. it's exactly what a terrorist want us to say. >> we assume efforts have been made and they've been thwarted >> and the second question comes up in terms of the future. what is it that we need to do, or not do? >> we need to deal with bio terrorist threats. dirty bomb threats. >> how do we get to it is my question? >> to deal with a dirty bomb is actually easy. it doesn't cost anything. what that entails the president of the united states getting on
bomb is scarier than it is. >> you're saying the reaction? >> yeah, the reaction. the other thing we have to do, is we have to accept the fact that never again is a fallacy. we seem to be okay with accepting the fact that people can be mentally ill do these things but we don't accept it for terrorists. >> in a political year, you talk about an o >> right. i think that is a real possibility in part because, i don't want to engage on the price of politics, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the terrorists would love to have someone like a donald trump be the president of the united states because he is willing to declare war on all muslims. and that's the way they have framed the issue since september 11.
and president obama refused to take that bait. he campaigns on that. >> an article that's very frightening, i think there are a lot of lessons to be learned there. you say we've spent billions of dollars and it's always money well spent. >> we're on a beanbag, we kind of got that as business as usual. >> very usual, steven brill. thank you. we're going to take a turn to a lighter topic. take a glance in our toyota green room if you this may attest like meat, may
