george patton and we all sort of thought about that, 1970s biopic about the world war ii general. here's a clip and we'll talk on the other side. >> all real americans love the sting of battle. americans love a winner. and will not tolerate a loser. americans play to win all the time. i wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost. >> what do you make of that comparison? i see you smiling. >> it's a terrible comparison, brooke. first of all, the entry to the movie "patton" with george c. scott that you just showed, that's the opening scene, is a compilation of a lot of speeches that patton gave to his soldiers prior to the invasion. so it's cupid of a summary of a lot of things that patton did and sometimes generals and leaders have to be theatrical when they're talking to soldiers and get them fired up when they're going into tough combat. that's what was portrayed by george c. scott. mattis is certainly theatrical at times. he uses different means to impress upon his soldiers but he's very much like patton, very much a from teeng i can thinker as well but that doesn't define

to you was, how long was he in the dark? >> what we learned today was president george w. bush didn't receive a full detailed briefing on these harsh interrogation techniques until 2006, more than four years after the program had been ongoing. now, bush knew some of the details and had to approve some of the techniques. but according to the cia, actually, the white house staff intentionally kept him from knowing all of these details and stopped cia directors george tenet from briefing him directly. now we know they weren't fully in the loop. >> but before we get to them defending it because, you know, president bush was on with candy crowley over the week. i want to play that. but in a second, why were they kept in the dark? was it fears of media leaks? what's the explanation? >> right. susan rice and dick cheney according to the cia documents told the cia they were afraid of press releases, but the truth is that the cia believed they didn't want the president to know. and not only the president, senate intelligence leaders weren't briefed until 2006. the full senate intelligen

know what's interesting for me, brooke? i worked for president george w. bush in his first term. and it sounds very familiar to what president bush was talking about near the end of his first term where he say everybody -- everybody -- he's considered a moderate and a centrist on immigration. everybody who is here legally had to go home, fill out paperwork, demonstrate they can get a job, that they had proficiency in english and fill out all their paperwork. and then they could come back with some kind ever status after they were approved. people think this is very harsh rhetoric. it is actually very consistent with where a lot of republicans have been for a long time. >> but for those undocumented immigrants who have not broken the law and who have been here for years and years, what happens to them? i think that's where some of the confusion is coming. >> right. all i'm saying is what president george w. bush said in the early 2000s is everybody -- everybody -- who is here illegally had to go home. they called it a touch-back. you had to demonstrate to the american people that
