Their presence there over the last twelve years has been a source of enormous difficulty -- friendly government.
It's been a huge recruiting device for -- Qaeda in fact.
If you look at -- long one of his principal grievances was -- presence of so called crusader forces on the holy land Mecca and the idea what do you make of that quote.
Well that's happened.
A lot of people agree with that and that and in 1953 Iran poll points out we went into the Middle East and we -- out democratically elected prime minister -- -- And we come back sixty years later in ways we come with war.

You look at Egypt and you mentioned Egypt and that's a good example abundant unintended consequences that doctor.
Paul talks about their thirteen million Christians in Egypt including the large Coptic Christian community.
That could be slaughtered now with the change of government there with the Muslim Brotherhood taking over was -- real law and you look back on the war and I Iraq who -- After we've left directly now the Christian community's been wiped out of church a thousand years old in Mosul.
As Armani -- used to -- results aren't used constant what I need some work for George W.

I've co authored books with presidents I've interviewed six or seven of the president's and first ladies and nineteen of their children and I -- served in the White House for one present an advisor to two presidents and I have never served anyone that.
Then Ron Paul I sleep better at night because he's a principled person who believes in the constitution.
And that -- -- sometimes some groups this group or the other group.
But it's so wonderful document and there's nothing extreme.
There's nothing dangerous there's nothing wrong with the US constitution.
