The Young Turks - 9.29.14: Obama, ISIS, Afghanistan, Police Shooting Update & Gay Rights Win CALI

Cenk hosts TYT today. President Obama told 60 Minutes that the intelligence department underestimated the ISIS threat as it built itself amongst the chaos of Iraq. He also said that we overestimated the willingness of Iraqis to fight. Obama outlines why we have to go in militarily to disrupt their networks in a video. Cenk is annoyed by Obama’s lack of clarity or understanding of how to do anything. Videos of Fox News’ Chris Wallace going after Obama spox Blinken over the Administration’s use of the authorization after they officially came out against the authorization to use force are also shown. In addition, Wallace grilled Blinken on Obama restarting the war after declaring the decade of war is over. Cenk points out that the past few Spox and advisors have similar names. Khorasan, the newly publicized terror group that we’re bombing in Syria has some usefulness for our scare tactics. New evidence shows that since we already declared that ISIS isn’t an imminent threat, we needed an immediate enemy threat that justifies our aggression, so we created this one in order to bomb targets connected to ISIS. A new president has been elected in Afghanistan and we’ve announced that we’ll be keeping 10K troops in the country indefinitely. Oddly enough, there was a suicide bomber near the location of the swearing in ceremony for the new president.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Update on the NM police shooting and killing a homeless man that was camping outside on public land. Video of the original video of the execution is played again. Audio of one of the shooting officers has surfaced that shows him talking about shooting the man in the penis, just a few hours before killing him. CA Gov. Jerry Brown has vetoed a bill that would force police to get a search warrant before using a drone to spy on citizens. Jerry Brown also signed legislation that outlaws the Gay Panic Defense, which is used to get lenient sentences for homophobes that attack or kill gay people they feel are hitting on them. Gov. Brown also signed the “Yes Means Yes” law into law as well. It changes the way college campuses approach rape cases.
