-- -- I'm joined now by former US ambassador to the United Nations Fox News contributor John Bolton Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and Fox News contributor.
Let's let's go first to the issue of what is happening in.
And by and Ghazi.
-- hopefully it will be contained there.
The storming of the embassy the burning of -- consulate.
This is not the stuff above Arab Spring -- -- this this is.
Radical Islamic wave.
Cresting in in the Middle East and I think anybody who remembers the takeover of our embassy in Tehran in 1979.
Has to be channeled -- the picture of people standing on top of the walls of our embassy.
In Cairo and reports that that fire has damaged or destroyed the consulate in -- guys it.
You know we'd better be prepared for something worse coming in the next several days at a minimum I think it's time to tell the government of Egypt.
Their security forces could've prevented this and we expect them to be prepared the next time -- Richard I'm.
I'm afraid I do agree with Jon and often -- we disagree that on this they're -- genres that.
There can be absolutely.
No dispute that that is an attack on American soil the egyptians have an obligation to protect the embassy.
Justice they had an obligation to protect the Israeli embassy which they also did not do.
This more -- government if Mohamed worse he wants to be considered a serious -- If he wants the United States to reduce Egypt's debt -- -- billion dollars which we promised them we would do.
I think we have to be very clear that this country looks like your daughter not be -- at tolerated which looks.
-- utter madness right now well it's very foolish I mean let's let's remembered the Muslim Brotherhood official position is that 9/11.
Was an effort by the American government help stimulate.
The economy back in 2001 I think Mohamed -- he should be called upon to repudiate that position.
That the coincidence if that's what it is it stuff coming across our steel -- on 9/11 is just unbelievable.
-- upsetting is all of this is perhaps more upsetting to many Americans is the fact that the Obama administration it's the State Department.
To the very radical islamists who were demonstrating.
On behalf of -- The makers of a film are questioning Mohamed.
Eight and setting aside there are.
Our constitutional rights.
And and culture and heritage -- free speech to say.
That they had abused our freedom.
In hurting the feelings of Muslims Judy did this the strikes some.
And particularly me if I may be candid about this as utterly IE and he's just disgusting.
I think an endorsement to free speech is something that could have been issued and should've been issued on the tenth of September but not as protesters are climbing.
Via walls of the American Embassy -- moreover it's unclear what film there are they were protesting that it seems to be.
A film that was put out online by Kurt builders who the last time I checked is not American but a Dutch citizen politician.
This is just a pretext.
For staging and noisy rockets nasty dangerous -- Protest on the day of 9/11.
And with Netanyahu asking for a meeting.
It -- Israel is -- small -- six and a half million people.
The president United States is in charge of -- superpower.
Israel is our principal -- care and the issues are for Israel extant.
They are all about whether or not Israel survive but it's a bad day for America and -- -- friends that the essence of free speech is the government doesn't deal with substance the government has no role in commenting on the substance of speech.
That that statement by the embassy was appeasement this is worse -- the stock colds this syndrome at least then people are already hostage this is a pre constant statement.
And on Israel first for Obama not to meet with Netanyahu at a time of the Iran in nuclear weapons program.
Reaching a climax is just inexplicable.
It just take a look.
If the statement issued by the US State Department the embassy.
If we could put -- up.
The embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by miss guided individual -- To hurt the religious feelings of Muslims as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.
And goes on to say today the eleventh anniversary of September 11 2001.
Terrorist attacks on the United States Americans are honoring our patriots.
And those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy.
And with that we are.
I mean what are their investors should fall on -- -- over this when this is an embarrassment to the United States it's an embarrassment to Barack Obama and if he doesn't repudiated soon it will be something Americans consider in November.
And more than that I think it reflects the lack of a coherent policy towards Egypt what we're going to do with respect to the Muslim Brotherhood.
To safeguarding American interests and American it's just disastrous just -- it -- Leave -- at this there there are foreigners on the walls of our embassy in Cairo.
And we need a strong American response where they'll be there again and not just on the walls but over the walls next time.
This is from these strange moment.
In our history.
It's a strange.
And bent on a day that in which we commemorate those we lost in those attacks.
In this administration has taken a posture.
That they have to -- first rouble is wrong they have to understand that and politically if this could we have -- it politically.
It is absolutely damaging to his reelection effort depends on how you feel about Israel and I think this is a real market where the president really is for precisely the reason you say that politically you'd think he'd say of course I'll see.
Prime minister Netanyahu and yet he's rejecting even that that shows the depth of the the -- that he holds for that country very quickly we Netanyahu was talking very strongly ago.
Talk talking about red lines and I -- tell you.
Netanyahu needs to mind his manners and very very.
And I figure that's what the administration was responding to my understanding is Ehud Barak is coming here next week to smooth things over well let's -- he does because this is the wrong message -- the Iranians right now I.
I believe that both of you are exactly right.
This administration to -- the the request by Netanyahu is an insult slap in the face its.
-- It's incomprehensible.
-- for Netanyahu to behave as he is doing now.
These were there were if there were typical time if Sarah nukes building point eight your backyard you do worry about red lines to are.
But his own government let me let me say -- -- that that if you're existence depends on the good.
They're good our offices of the United States you would if I'm -- I'm going to leave this.
You would be we've all their respect Jon -- You would be I think a police respectful of the nation in the office.
That that Barack Obama --
