While the British French and American squabble over the spoils of war the interim Libyan leader Mahmoud -- real is asserting that Libya -- set of its new government there.
And the next seven to ten days.
Well western powers turn and -- blinded by agreeing to corruption or worse in the rest in -- government here to discuss his newly retired.
Army lieutenant colonel Anthony -- colonel congratulations on your retirement.
And welcome back at their freedom to have her previous peak of last without those sensors from the defense finally.
All right so what really happened that I -- hand -- what the heck were we really doing their that the president didn't balance out.
Well judge we took sides the whole ostensible for shall -- what humanitarian support trying to protect the population.
You and I both know if that was the case of what was our standard protecting we would be in the middle Syria right now trying to protect the uprising there where we didn't do that.
This is all about oil this is oil and I don't understand why we just don't say it's about oil and the other fiction and you bought out of if you -- this or not but I got a world of of criticism from the army.
When I was on what they've -- on Bill O'Reilly show talking about boots on the ground look -- we've had boots on the ground.
It would be irresponsible for us to be launching weapons.
Into a country without understanding -- those weapons are hitting.
Right so we've had folks there we have a now.
My guys are telling me the reason we know about the WMD that's gone missing because we've had guys trying to figure out works out there which we should okay involve ourselves which should be.
Right there in the middle of -- K you're a civilian now -- your free to say to speak as you wish about our political leaders even -- your former and still the president.
Commander in chief President Obama.
Did He lie to the American people when He said there are not now boots on the ground and I don't attend on the put them put them on the ground and by the way were only there for humanitarian purposes.
-- -- when He said that.
Well the latter is.
Do the latter is easy to me it is patently clear that there was -- -- That the whole reason we're going and was for humanitarian reasons right now that we build -- the battle is not over you have elements which are quote unquote -- Qaddafi which really judge our tribes.
Who are anti the current regime witnessed here -- not really getting a new Libyan government you're getting elements.
Which don't like the Libyan that -- elements of that -- a lot.
The -- boots on the ground thing this -- the bottom line if he's US military member he's doing operations and Libya that would constitute in my judgment boots on the ground.
There was a lot whatsoever I don't know well yeah.
A little and the boots are wearing military uniforms or whether -- special ops.
Wearing local -- they are still troops that is boots on the ground.
That's right and how much for some -- continue to say there there there are.
Switching gears is there more information.
That continues to come out.
About 9/11 I mean yeah you you -- in your book heart of darkness about the Able Danger project and your efforts to bring.
To the attention of that 9/11 commission.
Of the of the fact that you guys found Mohammed -- -- eight or nine months before 9/11.
Is this general Lambert and what -- He try to tell the FBI.
And why did the army prevents him from telling the FBI about Mohamed -- threat before 9/11.
Or this is one of those grand irony is that that during the rejection the second -- action -- almost exactly a year ago.
One of things they sat on before was don't bring up certain names -- certain individuals one of the most significant is general Geoffrey Lambert.
Lambert by its own emissions was the guy who said no to passing the information to the FBI related to monitor tonic and -- this is that the whole issue but taught them adopted.
He wasn't in the databases are -- was in as -- yet.
He was -- one of his aliases so the whole thing has been thrown off by that at pentagon keeps and -- could find a top of course not He wasn't in database the time as the top.
So this so this is one of the things they cannot really hard on me and actually said it the same thing about Lambert or this other issue.
We will try to do something against you so obviously I've had to sit back and not say much about it but this is another.
Issue hidden in plain sight that needs to be looked at I actually recommended to him judge -- -- interview Lambert.
And he'll tell you the same thing I'm saying and they wouldn't do it I'm going to guess that -- never occurred.
Colonel -- again congratulations to you retirement come visit us in the -- it's a pleasure to have you.
Right thank you sir.
