White house with more let's bring in KT McFarland former deputy assistant secretary of defense and also a Fox News contributor ride the one of the statements and now we've just mentioned at the top of the show but the idea of justice being done that's what the president just talked about -- the next question will be.
How do we define that as a respond to this crisis in Libya.
Look the United States was attacked September 11 eleven years ago and the United States is attacked September 11 yesterday.
What what does that mean the United States territory embassy -- sacred ground that's American territory.
And it wasn't just Libya it was Egypt as well and those two attacks came within hours of each other.
Where they coordinated attacks when the president came out as he rightfully did and and ended grieve the loss of life of American diplomats particular American diplomats who were helping the Libyan people get their own freedom.
He should -- follow that by saying these attacks are not going to be tolerated we will hold the host governments responsible for this.
There's some indication even in Egypt that there was advanced warning that things were behind these attacks were coming which is why the Americans have gotten out of that embassy but the president has serious things to say that the leaders of those countries.
We are holding you responsible.
You have to protect our people you have to have better intelligence better.
Better protection of our people and if you don't do that and we are gonna reassess our relationship with you because if you don't stand strong right.
Now this is exactly what happened to Jimmy Carter and why my boss Ronald Reagan was elected -- because Jimmy Carter when Americans were taken hostage in Tehran didn't.
Do something strong he apologize.
Here on his hands he said let's try to negotiate and that's the kind of response I just heard from President Obama.
But back then didn't we -- have a better sense of who our enemies work with in the case of Libya -- the government within their all of these armed groups and rebel brigades and does the Libyan government.
Have you had any -- crawl out of about -- are they say they just liberated that kinda with with not a Libyan government didn't know an advance didn't stop it why not.
Must've known in advance because the jurors imposes -- that.
They knew and that's why -- -- has gotten out that in eighty jet with the Muslim they did not condemn the attacks -- patients some way -- Elected vague and -- -- Egypt right now the Muslim Brotherhood.
Did not condemn these attacks did not -- the united say did not if you -- he should have been standing there in front of the American Embassy to protect the Americans.
We -- these people billions of dollars we have little worried of these countries we have helped put these people in power and what is our response attacking the American Embassy which is an act of war.
Don't think -- let me go back comes gonna go back to the original question from on the try to sum it all up and see what -- Advocating for in terms of the idea justice being done what do you think we should actually deal.
I think -- the president -- states should say.
You are being held responsible you are the leaders of your countries.
You're responsible for the protection of the Americans effect that you either knew about it and didn't stand in the way or didn't know about it either way we're holding you responsible.
We're gonna reassess our situation relationship with you if you -- are people if you cannot protect our people we -- are people out and we by the way they separating all of.
Checks before we go -- in what's being lost in all of this.
Is that the heightened tensions between the White House.
And Israel absolutely and it add that into what happened in Egypt and Libya and KT what what are we facing -- that's.
Are coming off the trolley.
You know the president -- states having -- Israel has effectively told Israel you're on your own in dealing with a nuclear Iran.
What does that -- -- Israel that's got to have them think we'll see maybe we aren't around maybe we need to have some kind of a preemptive attack.
I think that the present has very badly handled all the -- the Arab Spring.
Which he helped usher -- and which he helped lead by pulling the rug out from under the leaders of those countries now is turning into an Arab winter.
I don't know what you make of this we've just been alerted to something came across the newswires -- the Egyptian president.
Bob and Marci Muller.
Alluded to he's asked the Egyptian embassy in Washington to take legal action in the United States.
Against the makers of this film swear this makers in this film that is in attacks the Prophet Mohamed and Muslim religion and all that that apparently angered some of these.
Even if you don't market this isn't a movie this is like some home video that may be twelve people -- watched.
This on the Internet.
That is is if that's an excuse they're using it because about -- all right to storm the American Embassy.
I think we should have a pretty fast phone conversation with mr.
-- -- will talk more about that does at all it will take of the -- covers how lucky we are probably those countries up financially.
We sure are and increasing -- amounted to Egypt kicked -- -- so -- and KT McFarland.
And we do.
