Christopher Stephens and three other Americans joining us now the senator.
-- -- senator good to have you with us.
Let's if you believe all -- -- be cut off right now 22 Libya.
Perhaps Egypt as well.
Yeah we have an amendment that would do just that there's a bill pending on the floor and I plan on introducing this amendment.
You know I think it's unconscionable.
That our ambassador would BS and assassinated.
Without protection from the host country we would never allow -- something like that happen and our country.
In Egypt there have been news reports that they warned our embassy that the -- was coming but they didn't send any troops to protect our embassy.
I think that's inexcusable.
It and president and is that inexcusable.
In your judgment that the United States the world's only superpower -- have to depend upon.
The host country of -- -- the security of our ambassadors for our consulate staffs are embassy staff.
Well we cannot and do -- I'm not -- -- fault that we have a certain limited about a Marines that are stationed in our embassies.
Well we don't plant and army in every country around our embassy.
Not Iraq we have because it was a war zone there still is a small army.
I think associated with the embassy in that maybe an overstatement but.
Think they're 171000.
People there in the Green Zone in Iraq.

Is unhappy about foreign aid being sent to countries that don't like us and disrespect it.
The other country out there right now that I began this about two months ago was Pakistan for imprisoning -- afridi.
He recently had an interview with your network that talked about being tortured at the hands of Pakistani security agency.
So yeah I'm forcing an issue I'm in the process of filibustering in stopping all motion on legislation appear to like get a vote on ending Pakistan -- And I would hope governor Romney would chime in on this because the American people are sick and tired of their money going to these.
