-- -- -- Unfortunately lost this debate the issues foolishly got mobbed and -- Oxford's.
Or charter -- from current -- system and latest underwear bomber that terror plot there was sort of apparently it was a double agent -- militant.
-- as Saudi double agent our problem with the whole terrorist issue and dealing with intelligence gathering.
Is that unlike the Cold War where you knew who the enemy -- -- -- -- country you know he belonged to you know -- however as -- -- -- you -- -- -- satellites.
This kind of a conflict you don't know what he looks like you know and and most of the conflict situations are across the world across borders.
And the people doing that are part of tribes and families who can't penetrate -- you can't look at them you can't see inside us again arcade and Afghanistan with the satellite you need to get individuals and and you need to get credible and officials have now we don't have and we don't have many of -- the saudis do.
And so this was a joint intelligence operation with the saudis my problem with that is as we're talking too much because.
Personal relationships really mean a lot.
In dealing with al-Qaeda and the more we talk about brag about her personal relationships with fewer of them -- him.
Now's got on the outcome there much question.
-- December -- become available.
-- -- I think it's it's unclear there were leaks may come it's not clear who made the leaks it was presumably Americans out of Washington -- -- it was the government.
Where there is intelligence community -- there -- some guy bragging.
But the leaks actually started several weeks ago.
To a news organization the news organization kept it quiet for awhile now and then according to congressman Mike Rogers whose chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
The leaks came in the middle of the operations so that the operation wasn't completed there were other steps.
To be taken that were boarded because -- the leaks came out too -- and I find that a real problem.
You know we're if we're not gonna win this war if we don't have good intelligence and if we keep talking about it we're not gonna have got -- -- So lakes came from Washington.
-- because they remember that could give them -- About one million when they got Osama bin Laden and let all the board of follow all over themselves.
Out of -- -- -- -- to -- -- Yeah and patting themselves on the back -- not elect takes them being taken victory lap if you want -- don't endanger security operations and intelligence operations transferred because.
The key all this is getting intelligence from people who know its plan in.
What they're planning to do next and if you if you blow those covers some of that Saudi double agent you know he's ever gonna get back -- and work again he'll probably retire somewhere.
But you need to have more and more of those people you'll never see the next -- coming.
Long more no he's not gonna get back and they and that's only resemble an army in.
Just -- in this inexplicable to access information and did not -- -- -- was unhappy that they couldn't on the weather couldn't detect of the bomb you know.
Well that's the other problem with -- is that what we've seen as al-Qaeda is infinitely adaptable we do one thing and then they're very nimble.
They did have a work around the universe -- period of time so this is a bomb that presumably would not have made it through metal detectors.
-- we have more sophisticated.
Detector and detection in the United States but they don't if you're traveling from our receipts and that's the vulnerable point is that you get on an airplane somewhere in Africa somewhere in Europe -- in Asia.
Headed for the United States you don't have as this thorough security checks -- -- -- last.
The problem I have with -- -- TSA thing is we are checking a 100% of the people because for so politically correct.
-- we dealing with granny who's coming from Grand Rapids with the grandchildren on the way to Disney World and we're frisking her.
And we're giving her as much attention as we are sound young guy who's got multiple entry visas from North Waziristan.
And who's made the reservation the day before he's debated paid in cash -- is having a lot especially guy -- we out of silicon and I.
I'm the first summer subject and granting.
Bills -- level bomber pregnant restaurant consultant.
-- a programme that America Gotti is a little common sense that if we're spending all this money and we'll hear a 100% of the people we're now looking at anybody as as.
As it with a laser focus like we should be I know John eliminate 98% of the people and focus with laser like.
Scrutiny of the 2% that look suspicious I have no business.
I have no problem with the we're at the house and growl so don't amongst us Senator Clinton to act of god -- out there and it.
-- where our presence and this.
Sort of some pronouncement on gay marriage.
Now I just think -- should stay out of my bedroom out of my bathroom and out of my billfold and a -- -- why is this even an issue I think he's just diverting attention.
From the big issue in the country which is unemployment and a and an economy that's about to head off -- if you know -- sense of every dollar our government spends is borrowed.
Half -- that's borrowed from China at a certain point China's gonna say -- when -- -- -- money for Julia -- defer pension.
And then what's gonna happen -- and -- have to have a sudden.
Precipitous fall off a cliff.
What does support gay marriage -- gonna vote.
For Mitt Romney even knowing -- and idiotic position on it.
What's even bad about number -- -- an abundance.
Is -- I don't blunt I don't really -- -- you actually feels your daughter doesn't care.
Like most like our prime multiple -- But he's saying he -- student to appealed to the Natwest three wants to vote point which is worsened simply.
But it's not gonna change my -- I don't know how many people.
One nominee of people's vote Accenture.
Will all or it'll be decide on the economy should just port -- out.
Any of the economic statistics where it was -- -- only 8% and -- him it is 14% unemployment.
I think people are just forget the statistics are gonna vote on the basis of do you have a job to your spouse have a job -- your kids have a job that -- the only statistic you care about.
So what's going on and around.
What -- maxed -- out herbs are continuing to have I think fruitless negotiations with Iran are continuing their weapons program.
We cannot give -- there's no change there except Iran is getting closer and closer and closer and if Iran does get nuclear weapons everybody in the region -- nuclear weapons and and and now we have a world where a lot of countries have nuclear -- I don't advise the president to actually make that trip to Afghanistan.
-- sit down on the Oprah and -- you know Ahmed Karzai and elevated him drove slowly positioned -- presence there by Cyanamid board -- agreement women all levels all.
I think the president's looking for a way out the American public wants us out of Afghanistan he wants us out of Afghanistan why we have to give money at all.
-- -- -- you know how much are we given we get him hundreds of billions of dollars probably 500 billion dollars and why don't we say it looked.
-- -- -- we're out of here.
Or leaving in all of -- we're going home and some do and why -- why give them two billion dollars a year or whatever is going to be for ten years -- -- Irish government.
Can agree with Umar I think we ought to talk to do go to the -- -- right now are rationales no American president has had -- get out of a fight once you start of the fight.
And it isn't going well they just never know how to get out and so what they do is they keep fighting and they keep spending money they keep spending blood.
American blood and treasure on a fight that they can't we and we to Afghanistan.
Is such an important to a symbol once it's over -- I -- -- But I don't they're more money here's what we ought to do we are take bags of gold and we ought to go to ever tribal chieftain in Afghanistan.
That -- gold on the carpet and say -- your gold this month.
You whenever you with their college you can educate your children you can spend it on dancing girls you can do whatever you want with it.
We're gonna come back next month it would give it another -- -- gold.
The only conditions we have heard don't kill Americans and don't let al-Qaeda back.
And I think that's a firmer effective policy than giving it all to Karzai is probably.
He and his cronies are semi adult artists are on the minute we're out of their their on the next plane to Switzerland and there's --
