sheer numbers of birds. it was an incredible sight to see them all take flight at once. (buck) here in the prairies of canada there's a lot of grain grown here that these birds thrive on. there's wheat, there's peas, there's canola, and a variety of other grain crops. these fatten these birds up and prepares them for their southern migration. here's an example of some of the grain that's grown here this is barley and after the framers cut these fields there's still quite a bit left over and we set up our decoys in these wheat and barley fields. as the birds come out in the morning and in the evening to feed we're laying in the weeds waiting for them. (buck vo) prairie rose outfitters use the can am commander in their hunting operation, so do i. paul took a

(paul) k what a great shoot we got going on here's a male mallard and we got a female pintail and we got a gadwall here so. (buck) yeah these ducks have been decoying absolutely perfectly. (paul) coming into this mojo here real beautiful for us what a great shoot we're having right now. (buck) they're wanting to land and set right in front of us at like 15 yards and we've gotten some incredible shooting there.
just a few hundred yards to the left of us. that'll pretty much wipe out any chance of us decoying anything. we've got no wind so our decoys are hanging slack and motionless while the mob pours in over there. thousands and thousands of geese, gotta love it. (buck vo) i've enjoyed some fabulous wing shoots in places like russia, mexico, and argentina, in my life. i'm making this shoot in saskatchewan among the best of them. for more info contact prairie rose outfitters at the following numbers i'm buck mcneely join me again next time
your free, lifetime e-membership. is also the chairman for the foundation of democracies, former director of the central intelligence agency. we want to learn more about that experience and what we can learn moving forward. obviously, your experience as a former cia director gives you lots of insights, things that
you cannot talk about, and things that you can. are there any surprises given your of access to secrecy, and maneuvers, and where we were in the world and the things that we saw that were coming? >> guest: well, i'm not involved in the agency's work anymore. but i think being in that job, and some others in the federal government can give you a bit of insight into what is taking place in such parts of the world. the thing that jumps out to me right now is that we've got three empires -- >> armstrong: hold the point about three empires. mr. woolsey also graduated from an incredible, university in england that place they call
and we will be back. >> armstrong: welcome back or honored guest james woolsey director of the central intelligence agency. as we were going to break, you were about to talk about those three empires. >> guest: ifortfirst of all affecting this part of the world, iran wants to rebuild its long lost empire and it is making progress in doing that. it has major control in parts, almost all in some countries, lebanon, syria, iraq, yemen, and isis is trying to expand its reach substantially. look at the huti rebels that its backing in yemen that are creating a very serious problem for stability on that peninsula with saudi air arabia and elsewhere.
empire, it's a religious one. i'd sake it's a theocratic genocidal cooperation, and each of those words have a substantive meaning with respect to iran and not just an exploit. you got the iranian problem, and on the suni side of the spectrum within islam, you have the -- you have isis working hard to establish what they call a calatfet which is agreeing empire, and they have -- they have something that is beginning to look like a state, and that is what they want, because they think it's going to be a lot easier to get people to immigrate whereemgriotemigratepeople where they want, if they have a state structure. that is the incipient empire, i would call it.
and the third one is russia which doing everything it can to expand its control in eastern europe by taking over part of ukraine, and georgia, by taking over part of georgia, and now by moving fire aircrafts into syria syria. it's got real ambitions. it doesn't have anything that it does usefully, economically except in the business world, except pump oil. and it needs a high price for oil, $100 a barrel, and for the rest of us the oil down $40, $50 even below, but at least down there is a lot better for our consumers, for our economies, and so we have a real interest, i think, that is at odds with the russian desire for control of the middle east and the russian and iranian desire for pumping up the price of oil.
bringing it home a little, and it's still impacted what we are discussing right now are the greatest threats to the united states, today, tomorrow and in the future? >> guest: i think one of the biggest is nuclear proliferation, and the potential use of nuclear weapons in the middle east. this agreement that has just gotten signed, and probably will not be disrupted -- >> armstrong: was it signed? >> guest: it was signed back in july, and it's now been submitted to a process of review in the congress. it was rigged at the beginning, so it could get approved with only one-third plus one of the senate supporting it rather than the two-thirds it should have been required, but since it's really a treaty what i think. it's something that not going to be effective in limiting iranian power or move toward nuclear
a case that iran already has a nuclear weapon. they have been working on this problem from their point of view for 25, 30 years, and cheating and lying and doing lots of things and so on. what is going to happen is that they have gotten closer and closer to demonstrating that they got a nuclear weapon. other countries in the region, saudi arabia, turkey, et cetera, are going to say we can't the only ones in this part of the world without a nuclear weapon, we need one two. the other next crisis five, ten years out, may have two or three countries involved in one way or another, with religious rivalries, hatred of us, but nuclear weapon equipped states. one of the really damaging possibilities here is that the iranians, and even the north
nuclear weapon into orbit in a simple satellite over -- at slight orbit that passes over the united states, detonate it up high, 20, kilometers, 200 kilometers, somewhere in between, and that could well substantially destroy our power grid. we have with an electromagnetic pulse. we have got in that circumstance 18 critical infrastructures in the country, food, water, transportation, banking, et cetera, all 17 of the others depend on the electricity. if the electric grid gets taken down for not just an hour or two, even a day, but weeks to months, you could have a disastrous situation in the u.s., and we have to keep iran or north korea who are the most dangerous countries, i think
along these lines in terms of their craze niece, inies, i think we have to do everything possible to keep them from using if they have one from using a nuclear weapon. >> james woosley is the chairman for the defense of democracies, and former cia. is there anything in the last 45 seconds, that gives people hope and it's not doom and gloom? >> guest: we've got to take action. and i hope i'm not advocating using military force quite yet, but our best friends on some of this are the people of the country, iran. we have a national alliance with the iranian people. it's their government that is crazy, not them. and i think we have, you know, opportunities to work with people in other countries, that
we stood back when the iranians rioted back in their stolen election not monitoring stealing the presidency and we didn't do anything about it. the iranians were carrying signs, obama, are you with us or with them? the united states needs to look at these issues like ronald reagan did. what is going to happen, we win they lose. >> armstrong: we will be back
with the refugees across the miles away. is there anything that we can do as americans to prevent this mass migration? >> guest: we have to deal with assad and the syrian war. that is what is generating a good deal of it at least generating a disruption that makes it possible, i think that isis is pushing to get as many of its people as possible into the flow of refugees, and we've got to, as i said, we've got to figure out a way to keep that from producing people coming into the united states that can commit terrorists acts. in terms of financial assistance in terms of temporary housing, we and the israelis do this more thoroughly and better than anybody else after disasters, earthquakes in haiti and so
forth, there's a lot that can be done, but the problem is that a lot of these people are, are really want to leave syria. they have given up on their somewhere else. the germans have been accepting a number, and -- but it's one thing to deal with a few tens of thousands of people or even a 100,000 or 200,000, but >> armstrong: that's a change -- i want to be a little more in your face. >> guest: okay. >> armstrong: you know, recently, about a week ago, president candidate donald trump was land blasted for not taking on the muslim question of whether the president was a muslim. i don't believe the president -- hey, listen the president has muslim in his dna, but many muslims believe that they defend
they don't like the terrorism. they don't like the iraqi deal, they think it's poisonous for their region. just because someone questioned whether the president is a muslim is not a a bad thing. his father is a muslim so he is in his dna. that is a fact. i think the real question that nobody wants to deal with, when someone asks a question like that, to get with the president according to dna but his policies many people question, who side is he really on? >> guest: well there's a certain tone that comes through around the speeches and middle east and when he went to care owe that care cairo that is saying, i'm a citizen of the world. there's good aspects in being a citizen of the world, there are
things we have to think in terms of the world's interests, but the instrumentality that we have to effect in the world, toward the cause of the rule of law and prosperity is the united states. and the government of the united states and what the u.s. can do which is amazing. we conquered three empires in the 20th century. we did a pretty good job. i think that this is a, a really, really hard situation. i remember president's wife said the first time she had ever been proud of the united states was when he was elected president. well, you know, most of us are proud of united states without having our spouse elected to the presidency, and that's -- it creates all of that a concern, i think on the part of people that none of us really has a great idea what to do about it. >> armstrong: let me tell you.
