-- McFarland national security analyst.
Here's of all of -- situation.
-- rose held national security posts.
In the Nixon who were glamorous dampened a bottle of -- yes and Nixon Ford and Reagan administrations.
And she joins us now on good morning McFarland and Morgan are you train.
So all of start -- -- restore.
We'll start with the president's statement about Libyan gonna.
It was a mistake to be what I -- was weak now -- this is his Jimmy Carter moment the president has to come out.
And I think whole -- of these leaders accountable.
You know did you know that these attacks are happening going to happen in Egypt and Libya if you didn't know why didn't you now if you did now why didn't you protect Americans.
And tend not do that to sound apologetic to sound hand -- to sound like we understand the problems that you're having.
What does that -- the minds of those leaders is they they look at the mom's on the street and they are sent -- have a lot more to fear from the mom's on the street.
Or President Obama -- for months on the street.
So then they're gonna just let those months on the street go wild but -- the press is not portraying net orders.
Well I'm not gonna speak for the mainstream media that's where you -- higher and again no but I -- about a one scientist.
But has not been portrayed downward primarily.
Because Romney issued a shot out in my view well I I think there should -- -- present time and -- -- Americans being killed.
You know that's maybe not the time to make a statement that -- was right to say that you have to make a strong statement now now why because eighteen months ago -- spring happened.
-- why did it happen because there are a lot of unemployed man -- -- Arab uprising that all it would happen in the -- and country after country after country.
Had uprisings want their culture Arab Spring -- -- of -- And the uprisings came about because in almost all these countries 75%.
Of the population is under the age of thirty and they don't have check ups so they wanted to -- -- Well flash forward to now.
The situation has gotten worse it hasn't gotten better.
And so those same mobs of young people who want jobs can easily be hijacked by Islamic extremists I think that's what's gonna happen.
Of course we get a vote agent drew billion dollars a year gap or convert to more monitors Israel -- And so long not basis along the should've expected more but then.
We got a different -- there now.
Well and here's -- thing and Egypt particularly you're about to run out of food.
And fuel oil.
And gasoline and we have a lot of leverage over Israel that's why we need to go to the president of this -- and advocate -- Israel Egypt and we need to go to the prince of Egypt and say.
Stock this you know what did you do when you were elected.
Every detail -- and made nice with CIA tallest.
We want you if you want American -- we want you to keep the peace in your country.
What's going on Yemen.
Yemen I think what happened in the Libya and.
Ships were planned attacks -- September 11 within hours of each other well organized well armed.
To the point in Egypt where we had evacuated the American personnel from the embassy there what's happening in Yemen.
Tunisia and I think and other parts of them and the Arab world is a lot of that will be copycats have and I think he gets worse and tomorrow.
You'll see a spike in violence because that's their holy day they'll go to mosques throughout the region now -- -- up by the moms and -- America to the streets.
Now documents morning.
And and he and he was on guard and -- got capital and Russia -- back to Robert for us.
Not to -- nor do right.
But it does your one.
-- one present time and I'm not an element of time what else would you wanna bring up an armed.
-- well where -- where was the protection for Libyan ambassador and his staff I mean how -- -- CIA -- some of this coming those those are two questions I'd like -- -- answered.
Now -- the customer is it American embassies around the world -- -- job is not to be military forces -- is their job is to be sort of protection forces.
-- it's my understanding that the order came out from.
The administration to say don't Ralph things -- you know don't don't interfered -- Do what you might otherwise do if you see people storm the embassy walls.
But in Ben Ghazi where the Libyan ambassador -- -- the killing was there apparently was very little security now why we didn't see September 11 coming.
One year after the anniversary of the bin Laden death I don't understand from our reserves and -- Beef up our security I didn't -- people remember we have not only diplomats in that part of the world we have.
People are teachers we have aid workers we have an awful lot of civilians who are in these countries who I think -- in our risk when we expect to happen.
I don't know I mean I can't.
Possibly imagine what this administration thought it was doing except that the example that you have before -- Jimmy Carter that's exactly what happened Jimmy Carter pull the rug out from under the Shah.
President Obama pull the rug out from under Mubarak of Egypt.
And in Iran we ended up with American diplomats being held hostage for over year and then my boss Ronald Reagan being elected as a result.
I would get -- I think the president is to make firm statements right now publicly and privately.
That in every one of these countries if you wanna cooperate with you -- -- if you want Americans this is going forward here's what we demand.
Who we're gonna hold you personally responsible for these these embassies and -- -- deaths of his men personally responsible means that we are gonna -- off your raid.
If you don't stop this stuff and if you don't common find out who did this stuff and break with the people who have done -- stuff that we're gonna have to reassess her relationship with him.
So advantage of buddhism Muslim Brotherhood yeah and that's the problem you know with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt said they were not gonna -- people for parliament to have a majority of parliament they -- They ran a majority they -- -- -- Iraq and Iran -- president's presidential candidate they lied they ran a presidential candidate he -- They've answered -- are -- with the military they -- they got rid of the military leaders of that Muslim Brotherhood military leaders and and on and on so and then as I -- the first trip Morrissey the new president Muslim Brotherhood president Egypt may access to Tehran on.
So all us just say every say -- let's just say the administration -- To start revision.
Deadline it would cut off yeah but but not -- that they said -- standards this terrible.
But let's just say -- do you know.
And agents still doesn't align them more because there won't cut -- Well they should -- the -- -- the -- know.
Well I think congress has a bag -- -- of deciding vote on the aid to these countries and I think congress is reassessing and I'd add Pakistan that was -- Why we give money to countries which turn -- burn the American flag or -- donuts and summoned both born before.
Well -- -- foreign policy well we don't -- -- we don't get that much a dispersion analyze that don't Chirac -- for.
I don't know -- all supported prop up these dictators and -- there's just spots around the world.
Amish -- smaller -- happened Vietnam.
-- general money and.
On a groundswell I think we should demand something for them running and he had just the money -- has -- Her -- is their -- regression.
Henry Kissinger you worked foreign capitalists and the same time.
I've been saying the same thing of like a month for a well it's wrong because you do if you -- supporting these countries if -- propping these leaders have.
In country after country in the Middle East why are -- new leaders there is because we help them weather was a Libyan war whether it was.
In Egypt getting rid of the dictatorships whether it was in Yemen.
And what is our thanks for this I think we've got usurping a little tougher in -- -- Reagan didn't.
-- military Jim McFarland -- held national security impose amnesia.
Nixon Ford and on red and White House's is genomic Somoza impotent I have no personal knowledge of -- now.
I don't know what I'm here what was the -- around -- why -- -- -- their we really didn't have those kinds of discussions direct.
I'll bet you do that is -- -- -- O'Meara.
A better way of this embassies in a statement apologizing.
Readmit -- -- Bernard structure for the movies.
Was released before they attack.
I'm not sure -- -- was having written before the attack but forget that everybody living has nothing to do with -- -- that's just a convenient excuse bases just on -- -- think -- happen and it I think that it was September 11 -- we're looking for some to have happen and that that movie gave him a convenient excuse.
But it doesn't don't -- scuttle fastened to developers -- so now I'm and I looked apparent the movie is dopey it was -- -- sort of scam and paste on masks and beards and you know there there was not a cause to inflame the entire -- -- Well they're plotting.
Don't see any.
Realistic to positive.
Developments and our relationship.
Religion and I don't -- and how much held those.
Do these seasoned.
Foreign policy experts are supposed.
Administration people -- -- -- under the.
Why don't think they do and that's that's the problem is that you've got to demand identity crisis is perceived as weak or am happy I don't know where you shouldn't we should not be appeasing them because -- just take advantage of that.
Again look at what happened to Jimmy Carter and how he handled the fall of the Shah of Iran.
And where we out now and look at how Reagan handled the fall.
Of the Communists in Eastern Europe it was a very different approach and now you see now we're seeing the fruits of that Sean Hannity in my -- -- all the pros and away imposing.
Home I I just think it was a very foolish and weak statement at the absolutely the wrong time he was right.
To talk about the sacrifice of the American diplomats who were killed -- to follow that by saying and we are holding people accountable for -- -- and there will be.
There will be punishments there will be reprisals there'll be economic consequences.
When it -- -- about.
The biblical ambassador and a -- -- but he didn't even mention Egypt you know that it is tragic as Libya was -- -- not done -- united tanning -- Egypt is really they have the crux of this -- because that's where the broader Muslim Brotherhood is -- now controls the government.
Egypt is the biggest country is a country with the biggest history of the longest history.
It's the country that all the country's Muslim and Arab countries in the region look to and if Egypt is going in that direction.
And I think you can safely assume that others will follow.
I'm going to be charitable.
We have been deaths affect us prospect.
Certainly and company I think to market and and yet.
The economy is pretty much a disaster yeah.
And and this mess.
In spite -- Romney.
Super -- don't.
Me I'm gonna vote form nordic what are you gonna do in spite of all -- an important -- -- still.
-- -- -- -- what are people thinking about.
-- the polls because I think that -- -- -- of 8% unemployment what does that mean anybody.
Care whether you've got a -- lot of it -- out but to embed it in terms of how people are gonna make that decision American a look at the polls are not gonna look at the and unemployment numbers they're gonna look at their homes to live a job -- -- -- have a job.
To my kids have a job.
And that's what their decision will be based on -- Necessary again.
