Average -- our top story tonight as widespread protests erupt around the world.
The United Nations General Assembly meeting here in New York City in its second day.
A hot button issue taking center stage terrorism.
And how President Obama is handling those threats earlier he addressed the UN about the -- government's pursuit of nuclear arms take a listen to what the president had to say.
-- running government continues to prop up a dictator in Damascus and supports terrorist groups abroad.
Time and again it has failed to take the opportunity to demonstrate that its nuclear program is peaceful.
And to meet its obligations to the United Nations so let me be clear America wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy.
And we believe that there is still time and space to do so.
Citi does this help the president persuade the world that he's tough on terror let's ask someone who definitely is that's former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani what did you -- about.
Well I thought that was President Obama pursuing his.
Basically failed policies that he -- from the -- got into office and he was telling us that four years ago.
That we were gonna pursue diplomacy in that four year period Iran has proceeded.
To agree -- -- and three times more than when President Obama came into office there on the verge of becoming a nuclear power.
President pointed out.
They're the biggest sponsor terrorism in the world what happens when the biggest sponsor terrorism in the world.
Has nuclear materials to give the terrorists that a disaster for the entire world you know he says -- -- on terror I got I got a lot of yeah -- well that's not about it.
What what you see how tough he is on terrace short shouldn't dissuade the people and Egypt from the protest they engage in didn't stop the people -- Libya for killing.
An American ambassador the first one kill since Jimmy Carter.
President describes it on sixty minutes is just a bump in the road yeah -- the next -- about just a bump in the road and ambassador killed.
Another diplomat killed two Navy SEALs killed.
Dozens of people Syria killed demonstrations all over the world that he considers that a bump in the road -- serious trouble.
Yes in fact you know we have a sound -- where he addressed that in his speech -- was at the UN let me play back -- your reaction on the other side.
I know there's some who asked why don't we just -- such a video.
The answer is enshrined in our loss.
Our constitution protects the right to practice free speech.
Here in the United States countless publications provoke -- -- Like -- the majority of Americans are Christian and yet we do not bad blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs.
See that I was sort of ripping my hair -- -- I was like do we really think that was about the movie and here he is sort of legitimizing that -- UN saying that all this had to do with the movie for small do you believe that life is exactly on our ambassador has emerged.
President Obama was a law professor he would describe that as a red Herring.
You know I mean that's a that's a totally irrelevant.
Concerned that takes the -- -- administration kind of off the hook.
For how they missed the ball on this this was a planned attack -- he had his GUN ambassador on them what we can half ago saying this is a spontaneous attack.
That's -- ridiculous statement.
These -- These were.
Grenades that were propelled.
In a massive way these were massive arms people don't bring these things break to to spontaneous demonstrations and now all this evidence is coming out.
That the ambassador himself.
Had it had had had a a diary in which.
He was worried about exactly this kind of attack a week before.
So why he put the emphasis on this video project -- the video because people aren't asking the questions with the other compliant media.
Had he taken his eye off the ball when he captured bin Laden.
Theoretically from his point of view really drove al-Qaeda back when they -- they convince themselves they had a much bigger victory that was in fact the case.
And of the president of victory lap over gave a lot of material the Hollywood to make and so -- superhero.
But what I believe is they weren't paying attention enough to Islamic -- terrorism -- gonna decide to look to Asia.
Things were under control we pulled out of Iraq we pulled out of Afghanistan or we have a date to pull out of Afghanistan.
Things look like they're worse than they've been -- very very long time in the middle.
Yeah I mean what is the danger to Americans around the world that we have a president who's standing in front of the UN and is saying is talking about this movie and essentially blaming it on the movie went.
Most people with information believed that this the movie is like use at a red Herring and is not the cost what happened I'd have more more of a tendency of women on September 11 meaning the rate they I don't believe in coincidences may be too many years of investigating -- Gets -- to the point or don't believe in coincidences I don't believe that this was.
About the movie I believe this is about doing a terrorist act on September 11 slaughtering an American ambassador.
Killing an American diplomat killing two seals creating Havoc in twenty countries throughout the world.
It's not just about this video and for us to be constantly talking about this video.
Gives the impression that we don't really have a good a good and good sense of what's going on there and they were caught flat footed.
That the that ambassador should've had a lot more security -- he had the embassy should have had a lot more security than they had it indicates to me.
That they were kind of moving on to the next subject and not paying enough attention.
To Islamic extremist terrorism which would which would fit for a president who doesn't wanna say the words Islamic extremist terrorism doesn't -- -- use the expression war on terror.
Who used the expression war on women but he won't use the expression war on -- this is -- president of won't meet with Netanyahu who go on the view.
But he won't meet with the prime minister of Israel.
-- doesn't -- -- get pinned down on some kind of red line test for when he's gonna act militarily.
And I I'd never heard him use the words.
I'm gonna I'm gonna take military action.
And if I get to the point of having to stop you and I'm gonna take massive military action though the words we have to hear from the president.
I guess -- one more question before you go where we are here in new York and we are hosting the UN once again this happens every year.
-- -- and this cost the whole I read it over to New York I was mayor -- had eight years old who live here.
Do what -- get out of it isn't worth it from your respect what we lose a lot of money.
On the federal government only reimburses are used to get -- to check -- -- Bloomberg now only reimburse me before five million other.
Fifteen to twenty million that used to cost the city.
What we get out of it is being an international city the great international city capital world I'm sure.
We get a great deal out of it but this is not -- for free and has cost us a lot of money.
-- thank you for thank you know we always appreciate your time.
I'm gonna follow your your cars home tonight so I get I don't cast you mind hanging around for a little idled some -- -- I sure do I think I think so much.
