Has now doctor Wally Ferris Fox News Middle Eastern affairs analyst Fox News national security analysts KT McFarland.
Over national security post under presidents Nixon Ford and Reagan former US ambassador to the United Nations -- news contributor John Bolton.
What mean began if -- -- with UKP.
But let's first go to.
What appears to be a complete intelligence failure that these.
These actions should have been carried out by radical islamists in Egypt and Libya.
-- without the knowledge.
Well and the question is -- think that the country is founded the leaders of Israel Egypt -- -- the leaders of within -- anything new way and this happened they didn't know why didn't you know.
Now this is a situation.
Where within hours of each other there were two I think coordinated attacks against US embassy personnel -- us embassy -- that's act of war.
At this at act of war because -- -- embassies overseas are like attacking the United States and we've been attacked twice now on September 11 once eleven years ago and once that's.
In Libya there's a perversion however and that is that you were asked -- -- forces -- on Libya long before they killed our ambassador.
And three other Americans and injured others and Stromberg embassy.
It is a peculiar perversion.
Of history and -- -- if you will.
The expectation that this would be an act of war many Libyans would say they have been at war with the United States.
Why in this is the problem when the United States gets in the middle of somebody else's civil war -- we own it we got recently where in the middle of the Libyan war we're not in the Syrian work.
When it protesters went out on the streets in Iran we turn the other way when they went -- the Egypt we pull the rug out from under the dictator so what's happened now is there's chaos throughout the region.
While in Europe parts.
Is to what the US response -- should be.
First before my concern is about the current response by demonstrations specifically know.
The narrative I mean we heard secretary of state other high ranking officials talking about notions of it's surprising.
Was not expected to happen.
That means that these strategic analysis of the administration does not consider that there is a threat.
In Egypt and in Libya they do not basically define the selloff -- jihadist as the allies of al-Qaeda.
Therefore when they are shocked that this is going to happen it means that we have -- fate of an analysis.
And -- -- through -- -- to our viewers that there which are looking up there in the picture.
Video is live picture live pictures outside the US embassy in -- Cairo.
John Bolton this is in administration that chose to ignore what it happened in Egypt perhaps understandably in the minds of some.
While addressing the murder of our ambassador in Libya.
But on two occasions in which the administration put forward -- official statement.
They ignored what had occurred in Egypt.
What is -- go behind force the reasoning there.
Well there isn't any reasoning this is a complete breakdown of American policy the statements by the embassy apparently not cleared by Washington in my view were not very much distinguishable from the statements made in Washington today.
For this film.
-- nobody's seen the film that I know overall talking about it but it was supreme -- I've seen I've seen.
About ten minutes it was it was a pretext -- best this was planned in advance it didn't happen on September the eleventh by coincidence and let's get to the real.
The government of Egypt could have stopped those people from penetrating the embassy if they had security guards -- military around the perimeter we knew enough that this demonstration was coming.
That our embassy employees were sent home and the government of Egypt must've known to they let it -- the government of Egypt and I think I worry.
The government of Libya were complicit in the isn't incidence.
And these charges and complicity.
Knowledge of plans that obviously.
Resulted in the events of September 11 and Cairo and the Gaza.
Up the United States as the world's only superpower.
To be laughed depended upon.
The good wishes of the Muslim Brotherhood which now owns if you will the government of Egypt.
And the and they chaotic and and still.
Does organized so called government of Libya -- issue here it seems to me at least.
Madness on the part of the US government -- we have a higher responsibility to both our interest and our personnel.
And serving in the state to.
Permit them back absolutely and this -- -- this is president promising her moment and he failed.
Help push the shot -- run out of 19781979.
And then when Americans were taken hostage apologized try to negotiate -- you know one -- hands.
That is not how you deal with part of the world you act firmly.
And don't apologize and you demand and explanation and the president did not do any of that what does that -- gonna happen next they'll be more evidence.
They've now succeeded in what they wanted to do I think it is highly likely we'll see more Americans attacked.
You'll see more demonstrations.
That are somebody else's fault but in fact government.
These are two into Arabic language newspapers one.
From Egypt and one of the principal Arab language newspapers.
There reporting on the events and again using referring to the movie this Mohamed -- some pretext we're gonna take that up.
Our distinguished panel investor Bolten Molly and -- us he -- upon will be joining us up later in the broadcast through to go in depth.
On the issues that are now confronting the United States all three joining us here later stay with us -- coming right.
