Fox News Middle East and terrorism.
Expert and serves as foreign policy senior advisor to governor Romney also the author of the book coming revolution struggle for freedom in the Middle East.
Also with us tonight Pulitzer -- -- -- Fox News contributor.
Judith Miller -- let me begin with few bumps in the road.
What in the world with the president have been saying.
And why would -- said such -- back.
Well he was speaking Lou as you know about the entire suite of what's happened -- -- actually Karen -- -- about the recent developments that was the question -- our recent relevant in the context of getting rid of dictators a lot of bad things are going to happen and it would have -- easier I think had the president -- and I misspoke or I didn't choose perhaps the most elegant words as governor Tom -- good word being bandied around that day -- -- -- that I.
I think everybody knows what he -- he did not mean.
That the death.
I'm an American ambassador and three other American officials was a -- and -- Only do you agree.
I do agree that he did not actually mean that the killing of our ambassador is what he said but those bumps in the road if you look close standing in the -- we have five.
Major ongoing crisis a product is that -- Libya the Muslim Brotherhood are transforming Egypt that is a bloody civil war in Syria.
Iraq is a -- directed by Iran and Iran is very close to the nuclear bomb would missiles -- that not bumps in the road I think.
-- let's go to -- -- to I mean we suddenly have foreign leaders speaking very publicly telling the United States.
In this case President Obama what to do.
-- Morse I mean that was -- the extraordinary.
Interview with the New York Times.
Basically the Pakistani minister suggesting.
-- both -- suggestion was simply abandon our culture our heritage our constitution.
Said the hell with all that we are and embrace what they are.
It looks like a very bad trade to me.
Well it seems to me -- that this might be why the president wants to spend more time with the women of the view -- with his fellow leaders you know last year.
He did thirteen buying flats that is these bilateral one on one look at each other in the face of four -- meetings.
At the UN this -- he's doing on why because he's running for president and he knows that foreign policy doesn't play well.
And it doesn't want to have to have the conversation.
About what these gentlemen and at time right now.
You'll have it later.
Isn't that his responsibility.
And -- let me ask you that I -- -- that is responsibility.
Well absolutely -- president is the chief had to get a the public.
He has to explain to the American public what -- -- reasons behind the killing of an ambassador and staffer.
It's not that movie -- -- al-Qaeda you have to explain.
What were not able to roll back the Iran in nuclear and missile program.
A lot of expectations about Syria he could go on for hours to expand but he chose probably not to do -- -- this one costs.
Well we we understand from the White House that the president tomorrow speaking to the general assembly.
Will RA extract expressed his rejection of the values and views -- the innocence of Muslims they.
The two bit amateurish.
That was put upon -- two.
The president of the United States will be making a second appearance.
On on the issue of this ignorant movie -- what in the world is going on.
Here now my and my understanding though is that he's also going to denounce the violence and say that no matter how offended people are by caricatures of the profit there is absolutely.
No justification for such violence but look.
He he has to protect he's commander in chief he must protect the 141900.
Foreign service officers and State Department officials are out in the field.
What he's trying to do right now is calm the waters while restating his commitment to American values and denouncing violence.
Is a delicate line to walk I think he's doing -- fairly good job that at the moment.
-- in your thoughts that president has suddenly engaging in such.
I don't know what one would call it.
What I think that the advice basically initially is to have the president sort of addressing the -- weren't directly at the United Nations but here again.
There's a medium that -- missing link -- the president of Egypt who should address and egyptians as the president of Libya who should addressing the Libyans and on and on and off.
These are people who are our allies -- funding a lot of these regimes.
They should be the one to defend and their own language that alliance with the United States.
-- thank you both very much only.
