The Obama administration insists that the murder of our ambassador to Libya was the result of a spontaneous.
Demonstration that got out of hand.
And the facts witnesses and the Libyan government suggests exactly the opposite that -- al-Qaeda perhaps.
Was behind what was an organized attack on our consulate in -- Gaza.
Fox News national security analysts KT McFarland -- held national security posts under president.
Nixon Ford and Reagan joins us cents dollars former US ambassador to the United Nations Fox News contributor John Bolton thank you both for being here.
-- let me ask you talking earlier -- with Paul Wolfowitz.
This is a peculiar and it it best debate.
On the administration insisting against the statements of the president of Libya.
Eyewitnesses and intelligence sources that this was a planned coordinated attack.
Why would they -- the UN ambassador -- to say something that was so patently untrue.
I think it's because they're scared they know that their middle east policy is about to go up and planes and they wanna get in front of it and say it wasn't our fault.
It was the movie it was a spontaneous demonstration is I think they -- that there will be more demonstrations to come and they don't want take Iraq or before election.
But let's turn to investor rice's predecessor John Bolton what in the world is going on here.
Well I think the Obama administration recognizes.
That its claims that the war on terrorism is fundamentally over.
You know General Motors is alive and Osama bin Laden is dead.
Has just disappeared in this tragedy in Libya and it is an effort to say that that somehow or another it was just a bunch of rambunctious demonstrators.
Who got out of hand I I think the facts are gonna demonstrate that that's wrong I think -- the even worse than these claims about.
How it happened was the state department's attempt they'll walk down any discussion of this.
On Friday by saying well there's an FBI investigation going on.
We're not gonna comment on it any further that that lasted all the way until.
Sunday but I I think really reporters have -- now Sundays through here when Susan Rice made her appearance on the -- on -- -- Reporters have an obligation to find out what went on here we've got embassies all over the region that are jeopardy we've got tens of thousands of private citizens are in jeopardy we need to know what the facts are there.
There is something going on here that is peculiar.
Right and that is -- a White House that seems to be.
The United States and facts abroad.
That are not facts at all and in fact are tortured by the witnesses.
In but Ghazi by intelligence sources.
There isn't a single.
Source as far as I know erratic corroborates.
What a United Nations ambassador is telling the American people.
And -- -- White House is telling the American.
Well also if it's all because of this silly movie on YouTube we're just Hartley moving it's a bunch a guys who have glued on beards and discounts on their heads.
Pretending that there elementary.
And let me just corroborate -- sent if you have not seen in this.
It's harder -- to move.
It is amateurish to the point of being a car -- now it is.
-- and to suggest that anyone anyone of any intelligence.
I would give it credence in any way.
Even to take offense at it wouldn't it is -- look.
To comprehend well let's have a very unique position because there's a bin Laden movie coming out a few months and it's one that the administration has collaborated -- And been very much to sponsor out now how is that going to be received by the Muslim world -- the -- Pakistan is going to like it when they see bin Laden killed by American sales.
If there's a problem with this YouTube amateur video breaking out with demonstrations all over the Muslim world what on earth is gonna happen when the bin Laden movie comes out.
Let me ask both Hugh and John what school.
What fool would think.
That these demonstrations.
These terrorist attacks and been Ghazi all would take care did take place.
Without coordination with -- relationship.
-- you have to really have the IQ of -- -- And to accept that do you not ambassador.
Well I think that's probably about right but you know it is it is -- of a peace with the idea.
That simply having Barack Obama as president is going to change the reputation of the United States.
Around the world the polls you discussed with governor Sununu earlier I think put the lot of that.
So Obama has failed by his own metric but I wanna say I think it's the wrong metric I don't think public opinion polls.
It should dictate American foreign policy and and the notion that we're trying to be like rather than respected has cost us it is -- our reputation is gotten is neither faction.
Please let -- share with our audience again that poll by the pew research this is polling over.
The thirteenth of September through the sixteenth of September.
About the perception of the United States in the countries of Jordan.
Pakistan and Egypt and issues see they have worsened considerably.
Since the president stepped into office in 2009.
And man who had said he was going to change that negative perception of the United States he's changed it but for the worth -- -- is if you look at the entire from the Atlantic Ocean to Afghanistan Pakistan where is American foreign policy.
The Arab Spring has been hijacked by Islamic extremists Egypt is being run by an anti American Muslim Brotherhood serious -- -- civil war to 20000 people have been slaughtered.
Iraq which are supposed to be our allies now puppet of Iran Iran is getting closer to nuclear weapons Afghanistan we're gonna have to shoot our way out of there and Pakistan.
23 billion dollars later thinks that -- public enemy number one.
And imagine that.
And it is -- In three days three incidents of in signed.
Attacks against our troops and more deaths eight deaths over that period time it is as I say it is hard for an.
Thank you for being anything and we appreciate an investor thank you so much.
