7:33 am
>> that's one of the fundamental challenges of how we've approached afghanistan is this idea timelines. the everybody wants to talk bout timeline the taliban will wait us out but the challenge s the timeline is also there for the afghan government and so the afghan government will also wait us out if we don't have a timeline. we are pouring billions of dollars in the kabul. we have shown and the president reiterated last night that u.s. military is going to take the lead in fighting enemies of the united states. so long as we stepped that message, what incentive does the afghan government, what incentive does the afghan national security forces have to stand and start taking the fight on their own. >> on the flip side of that, you needed kabul, you need afghanistan to work with you because essentially they're the ones that are going to be doing this. >> right. >> and a lot of the heavy lift there. what do they need from us that we need to make sure we keep that relationship going and don't fracture that relationship? >> well, theodicy need some american military

here in how we give them support and whether or not we're actually training them. these additional three to 4,000 advisers i'll tell will you make no significant difference in standing up a sustainable independent afghan capability. we'll push air power, our intel, and other assets out forward, and that's going to be very effective in beating back the taliban but those forces are not enough to help the afghans in essence replicate the military that we have. >> i think that's the big question with this particular strategy, if you go in, if you eradicate the taliban the best that you can, now the president says he doesn't want nation building, he doesn't want to leave that vacuum where terror groups could come back began like what we saw with isis in iraq. how is that really different from what we've done in the p past? >> if one take away from last night's speech this was really an endorsement of the status quo. it sounded more aggressive but it's really we're here, we're staying, and you really highlighted the key point missing, whic

actually acceptable for us in terms of the structure of the afghan government such that we sake you know, you've got this, you're on your own? >> we haven't really gotten to that at all over the last eight years. we keep saying we want an afghan government that's going got functioning bureaucracy, rule of law, adheres to democratic norms much that's long project it's clear at least i don't think that the president wants to stay there that long but to not do so will require him to be very specific about hard choices about what we're willing to take in the afghan government. >> question comes back around to this is a president whose made it very clear he wants to win. he doesn't want to leave somewhere without winning after 17 years how much longer do you give this before you either declare victory or just you don't? >> it's really hard question. >> do you redefine victory? >> i think, one, you have to define victory such that what's actually achievable. we have been reluctant and even this president has now shown he's reluctant to say

satisfied with something short of permanent piece in afghanistan. so long as we don't have anybody with moral courage to state that, and say this is what we're actually going to live with, then we're there for another generation. >> the one thing that we have seen from this president that people he does seem to listen are the generals and it seems like by some of the statements he is at least telling the american people he's giving these military leaders more room to run essentially. is that different from what we've seen before, we just didn't hear it said that way? >> i don't see it at all. it really is kind of a continuation of the status quo in some ways it puts more responsibility on these military leaders. but it's a tough one, because the military has also fought this many ways if it's a sh short-term fight. we rotate people in and out constantly because we want to protect the military personnel system to fight bigger wars. >> right. >> i guess one thing that might be good out of thi
