>> Jon: EXACTLY.

TEN YEARS OF CLINTON GLOBALINITIATIVE.

SO YOU HAVE THIS THING ALLPLANNED OUT. YOU'VE GOT

THESE TREMENDOUS SPEAKERS, ALLYOUR THINGS IN ORDER.

SOMETHING LIKE THIS EBOLAEPIDEMIC JUMPS UP -- IT PROBABLY

REPRESENTS THE CONFLUENCE OF ALLTHE VARIOUS THINGS THAT YOU CAN

DO AT CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE.

HOW AGILE CAN YOU BE WHENSOMETHING LIKE THAT ARISES AND

CAN YOU ADDRESS IT EVEN AT THISYEAR'S CONFERENCE?

>> YEAH, WE ARE.

>> HOW?

>> WE'RE GOING TO HAVE ALL THEPEOPLE FROM THE WORLD HEALTH

ORGANIZATION AND THE U.N. ANDTHE DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS,

PARTNERS IN HEALTH, ALL THESEPEOPLE ARE GONNA COME TOGETHER

AND TALK ABOUT IT.

THE UNITED STATES HAS DONE ALOT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S GOTTEN SOMEMONEY THROUGH CONGRESS AND THE

PENTAGON'S COMMITTED A GOOD BITOF MONEY AND RESOURCES.

LOOK, THIS IS AN EMERGENCYBECAUSE NOBODY KNOWS HOW TO CURE

THIS.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> WE KNOW THAT ALMOST 5,000PEOPLE HAVE BEEN INFECTED.

WE KNOW THAT MORE THAN 2,600HAVE DIED.

ALMOST CERTAINLY MORE THAN THATHAVE BEEN INFECTED.

THE PROBLEM IS, AS COMPARED WITHPREVIOUS OUTBREAKS OF EBOLA,

WHICH ARE IN THE REMOTE RURAL AREAS, THIS IS HIT IN SOME

URBAN AREAS, AND WHEN IT GOTINTO NIGERIA AND THE CONGO,

THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE THERE.>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> AND THERE ARE JUST SO MANY

BODIES BRUSHING UP AGAINST ONEANOTHER EVERY DAY,

IT INCREASES THE RISK.

YOU HAVE TO ISOLATE AND CAREFOR.

A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE CANSURVIVE IF THEY GET PROPER CARE

QUICKLY AND WE CAN STOP THEEPIDEMIC AND LET IT BURN ITSELF

OUT IF WE CAN ISOLATE EVERYBODYTHAT'S INFECTED BUT IT'S GONNA

TAKE A HURCULEAN EFFORT.

>> Jon: RIGHT. IS THE IDEA TO,SINCE YOU HAVE PEOPLE ON THE

GROUND, YOU KNOW, IFORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE NOT AS

FAMILIAR WITH THE LOCAL ANDPROVINCIAL AUTHORITIES DOWN

THERE, YOU KNOW, ONE OF THEBIG ISSUES IS TRUST.

THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES ARE VERYFRIGHTENED BY THIS,

JUSTIFIABLY SO. >> THEY SHOULD BE.

>> Jon: AND THEY MAY NOTNECESSARILY TRUST OUTSIDERS

COMING IN, THE UNITEDSTATES COMING IN.

HOW IS IT THAT, CAN YOURORGANIZATION BUILD THROUGH THOSE

MORE LOCAL AUTHORITIESAND BUILD THE TRUST

YOU'RE GOING TO NEED?

>> WELL, WE CAN IN LIBERIA WHEREWE'RE VERY ACTIVE...

>> Jon: RIGHT, RIGHT. >> AND HAVE BEEN THERE, YOU

KNOW, FROM THE BEGINNING OFPRESIDENT JOHNSON'S TENURE.

BUT IN OTHER COUNTRIES, THEYWILL HAVE TO WORK WITH THE LOCAL

HEALTH MINISTRIES, THEY'LLHAVE TO WORK WITH THE LOCAL

PEOPLE WHICH IS WHY IT'SENCOURAGING TO ME THAT WE MAY

HAVE AN AFRICAN COORDINATOR.>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> WHO WILL HAVE, I THINK, A LOTOF CREDIBILITY WORKING WITH THE

OVERALL U.N. COORDINATOR AND THEWORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION AND

EVERYBODY ELSE.

I THINK, BY AND LARGE, DOCTORSWITHOUT BORDERS DESERVES AN

ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF CREDIT.>> Jon: UNBELIEVABLE.

>> BECAUSE THEY HAVE PUT THEIR

LIVES AT RISK AND PUT EVERYTHINGINTO IT.

SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE GONE THERETO SERVE, AND NOW THAT PARTNERS

IN HEALTH IS GOING IN, THEPARTNERS IN HEALTH IS MY PARTNER

IN AFRICA AND THEY'VE DONE A LOTOF WORK IN AFRICA AND THEY HAVE

A VERY GOOD NAME.

WE'RE GOING TO, I THINK, SEE ABIG RAMP UP, AND I THINK, IN

LIBERIA, I SAW A NEWS STORYWHICH JUST INTERVIEWED PEOPLE ON

THE STREET...>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> WHO WERE REALLY THRILLEDTHAT THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND

THE MILITARY WERE GOINGTO INVEST IN DOING THIS.

WE HAVE BEEN WORKING INAFRICA WITH THE MILITARY SINCE I

WAS PRESIDENT.>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> AND THERE'S ANAFRICA COMMAND NOW AND THEY'RE

VERY WELL ORGANIZED. I EXPECTTHIS TO GET BETTER...

>> Jon: RIGHT. THE AFRICACOMMAND, THAT'S, WHAT, THAT'S,

HOW OLD IS THAT, 20YEARS? IS THAT?

>> WELL, WE FIRST OF ALLORGANIZED THE TRAINING PROGRAM

IN WEST AFRICA AND THEN, AFTER ILEFT OFFICE, THEY TURNED

IT INTO A SEPARATE COMMAND.

SO THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING ABOUT17 YEARS, I THINK.

>> Jon: RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT.UNBELIEVABLE.

WELL, IT'S NICE TO SEE THAT THEINFRASTRUCTURE PAYING OFF IN THE

FUTURE.

WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'RE GOINGTO FIGURE OUT HOW TO FIX THE

OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD THATARE BROKEN.

>>LET'S DO IT.>> Jon: WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: THERE WE GO!

WELCOME BACK!

PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)SO, I WILL OCCASIONALLY WATCH

THE NEWS --(LAUGHTER)

IT APPEARS, BY WATCHING IT, THATTHERE'S BEEN A DISINTEGRATION OF

THE WORLD ORDER, OF WHATEVERSORT OF STRUCTURES HAD BEEN

BUILT UP OVER THE LAST 20 OR 30YEARS.

IS THAT YOUR SENSE OF IT AS WELLOR IS IT AN EXAGGERATED SENSE OF

SOMETHING SPIRALING OUT OFCONTROL?

>> WELL, THERE IS ADISINTEGRATION, TO A CERTAIN

EXTENT, BUT IT'S EXAGGERATED INTHE SENSE THAT ALL THE NEWS IS

BAD, BUT THAT'S THE HEADLINES.

THE TRENDLINES ARE MORE GOODTHAN BAD.

AND LET ME EXPLAIN WHAT I MEAN.

THE EXPLOSION IN INFORMATIONTECHNOLOGY AND OTHER FACTORS

HAVE MADE POWER MORE DIFFUSE.

THE GOOD NEWS IS, WE CAN GIVECELL PHONES TO FISHERMEN IN

INDONESIA IN THE AFTERMATH OFTHE TSUNAMI, AND THEIR INCOME

GOES UP 30% BECAUSE FOR THEFIRST TIME IN THEIR LIVES THEY

KNOW WHAT THE REAL PRICE OF FISHIS.

THE BAD NEWS IS THE SAMETECHNOLOGY CAN GO TO I.S.I.S.

AND THEY CAN BECOME A DROID ONTHE SOCIAL MEDIA AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN YOU SEE TWO AUSTRIANTEENAGE GIRLS PICKED UP AT THE

AIRPORT TRYING TO GO THERE ANDBLOW PEOPLE UP FOR THEM.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> SO POWER IS MORE DIFFUSE, ANDYOU'VE GOT TO BE, THEREFORE,

MORE INCLUSIVE TO EXERCISE IT.

SO THE REASON I THINK THAT THEPRESIDENT'S STRATEGY TO COMBAT

I.S.I.S. HAS A CHANCE TO SUCCEEDIS THAT THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT

FINALLY INCLUDES SUNNIS WHOWERE REPRESENTING THOSE TRIBAL

LEADERS WHO ARE MODERATE ANDWITHOUT WHOM I.S.I.S. CANNOT BE

DEFEATED. I MEAN,WE CAN GIVE THEM INTELLIGENCE

AND WE CAN DO BOMBING AND WE

HAVE TO DO THAT TO SEND A SIGNALTO THEM THAT THERE'S A PRICE FOR

DECAPITATING THOSE TWO PEOPLE.

>> Jon: MM-HMM.

>> YOU CAN'T LET PEOPLE GET AWAYWITH THAT, THAT'S A TERRIBLE

SIGNAL TO THE WORLD. BUT WECAN'T WIN A LAND WAR IN IRAQ.

WE PROVED THAT.

BUT THEY CAN ANDWE CAN HELP THEM WIN IT.

AND THAT'S GOT TO BE WHAT WE'RETRYING TO DO. SO, IF YOU WANT

TO HAVE A GOVERNMENT THATWORKS THAT'S EFFECTIVE, IT HAS

TO BE INCLUSIVE, OTHERWISE, ORIT CAN BE AUTHORITARIAN AND JUST

GET RID OF EVERYBODY THEYDISAGREE WITH.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> SO, THERE'S BASICALLY THREEMODELS GRIPPING THE WORLD.

THERE'S THE ENTREPRENEURIALNON-GOVERNMENTAL MODEL WHICH IS

GREAT IF IT'S THE GATESFOUNDATION.

>> Jon: RIGHT. NOT SO GREAT IFIT'S I.S.I.S.

>> OR WHAT WE TRY TO DO. ANDTERRIBLE IF IT'S I.S.I.S.

>> Jon: RIGHT.>> THERE'S THE AUTHORITARIANISM

CAPITALISM MODEL WHICH IS RUSSIAAND IN A

DIFFERENT WAY CHINA AND HAS SOMEAPPEAL LIKE THE HUNGARIAN PRIME

MINISTER, THEY OWE A LOT TOAMERICA, HE JUST SAYS HE LIKED

AUTHORITARIAN CAPITALISM, BUTHE'S JUST SAYING I DON'T WANT TO

EVER LEAVE POWER.>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> USUALLY THOSE GUYS JUST WANTTO STAY FOREVER AND MAKE MONEY.

BUT, AND THEN THERE'S THEDEMOCRACY MODEL.

IF THE DEMOCRACY MODEL IS GOINGTO WORK, IT HAS TO BE INCLUSIVE.

THE ONLY THING THAT REALLY WORKSIN THE MODERN WORLD IS

COOPERATION AND GETTINGDIFFERENT KINDS OF PEOPLE

TOGETHER, BRINGING THEIR SKILLSTOGETHER.

THAT'S WHY THE CLINTON GLOBALINITIATIVE HELPED 400 MILLION

PEOPLE IN 180 COUNTRIES BECAUSEWE HAVE THESE NETWORKS OF

COOPERATION AND THEY JUST GROWAND GROW.

(APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: DOES THE UNITED STATESTHOUGH,

DOES THE UNITED STATES HAVE TOREADJUST IT'S MODEL THEN

FOR PROJECTING POWER IN THIS NEWMORE INCLUSIVE WORLD?

DO WE HAVE TO ACCEPT A LESSSTRENUOUS VERSION OF A

PROJECTION OF AMERICAN POWER ANDALSO ACCEPT IT'S NOT GOING TO BE

PERFECT? YOU CAN'TERADICATE IDEOLOGIES BECAUSE

THINGS LIKE 9/11 WERE PLANNEDIN A THREE-BEDROOM APARTMENT

IN MUNICH. YOU CAN'T...

>> WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THE FACTTHAT WE MAY NOT WIN EVERY

BATTLE.

WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THE FACT THATWE BASICALLY ARE IN WHAT IS

PROBABLY -- WE'RE PROBABLY ABOUTHALFWAY THROUGH SINCE THE END OF

THE COLD WAR.

A 50-YEAR STRUGGLE TO DEFINE THETERMS OF OUR INTER-DEPENDENCE.

BUT WE KNOW WE AREINTER- DEPENDENT.

>> Jon: RIGHT.>> THAT IS,

ALL THE BORDERS OF THE WORLDLOOK MORE LIKE NETS THAN WALLS.

PEOPLE ARE WORRIED ABOUT THISBORDER PROBLEM WE HAD RECENTLY

WITH THE CENTRAL AMERICAN KIDSSHOWING UP.

THEY MOSTLY WERE RUNNING AWAYFROM GANG VIOLENCE AND

NARCOTRAFFICKERS.>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> BUT WE ACTUALLYHAVE FAR FEWER ILLEGALS CROSSING

THIS BORDER NOW THAN WHEN I WASPRESIDENT AND THE ECONOMY WAS

BOOMING AND WE HAD TO BUILD UPTHE DEFENSES THERE.

WE'RE ACTUALLY NOT DOING NEARLYAS BAD AS PEOPLE SEE BECAUSE WE

CONFUSE THE HEADLINES WITH THETRENDLINES.

EXTREME POVERTY IS DOWN.

MATERNAL MORTALITY IS DOWN.

KIDS ARE LIVING LONGER.

>> Jon: MIDDLE CLASS IS RISINGAROUND THE WORLD, JUST NOT HERE.

>> YES. WELL, THAT'S A DIFFERENTSTORY.

WE'VE GOT TO HAVE A DIFFERENTSTRATEGY IN AMERICA.

BUT THE EXTREME POVERTY HASDROPPED DRAMATICALLY AROUND THE

WORLD.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> IN TINY RWANDA, THEGOVERNMENT CREATED ALL THESE NEW

VILLAGES SO THAT PEOPLE WOULDHAVE DECENT HOUSING AND CREATED

STALLS FOR MILK COWS AND PLACESTO STORE THE MILK TO KEEP IT

FROM BEING DESTROYED.

THAT ONE THING, GIVING A MILKCOW TO EVERY RURAL FAMILY TOOK

670,000 PEOPLE OUT OF EXTREMEPOVERTY...

>> Jon: WOW.

>> INTO THE MIDDLE CLASS, THEGLOBAL MIDDLE CLASS.

SO WE CAN DO THESE THINGS, BUTWE'VE GOT TO HAVE PATIENCE AND

WE CAN'T BE ARROGANT AND WE'VEGOT TO REALIZE INCLUSION WORKS

AND UNILATERALISM DOESN'T.

>> Jon: RIGHT. YOU'VE GOT --YOU'RE GONNA GIVE ME FIVE OR TEN

MORE MINUTES, AREN'T YOU?

>> YEAH.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT. YOU'RE A NICEMAN.

WE'LL BE BACK ON THE WEB.

PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Jon: THAT'S OUR SHOW.

JOIN US HERE NEXT WEEK AT 11:00.HERE IT IS, YOUR MOMENT OF ZEN.

>> THIS IS NOT GOING TO BETHE UNITED STATES AGAINST

I.S.I.L. THIS WILL BETHE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

INCLUDING THE MUSLIM WORLDAGAINST THESE EXTREMISTS.

>> LIKE SAUDIA ARABIA IS GOINGTO HAVE SOME BOOTS OVER THERE.

>> SO THAT'S THE FIRSTTHING.

>> JORDAN.

>> I'LL LET THE INDIVIDUALMEMBERS OF THE COALITION

ANNOUNCE THE COMMITMENTS THATTHEY ARE PREPARED TO MAKE.

>> THERE WILL BE NO COMMITMENTSFROM THOSE TWO ON THIS.

I WILL BET EVERY PENNY I WILLEVER MAKE AT THIS NETWORK.
