What about New York Times Tom Friedman morning mr.
Freeman -- -- -- electoral apologized.
Virginia on light I'm -- rhetoric policy and you know I -- to read your column odd dollars and Huntsville Texas -- And I as a trying to get -- code.
On the motels like to get my I had to work hard to read your column -- and I couldn't brokers or what's right about dumbed.
Wrote about basically.
But -- Telecom was called the world were were actually -- and good point that's been trying to make Don is that.
-- I really believe something really really important happened in the last ten years -- these two huge inflection points.
But it's been disguised by this of Great Recession.
And -- Post nine elevenths and what is that I think we've actually gone from -- caught connected world to really hyper connected world.
-- from an interconnected world -- in inter dependent world so what does that mean in terms of foreign policy.
If you think about the world today whether what happens in the world -- this kind of interdependent these social your friends can kill you.
Much easier than your enemies -- greets collapses tomorrow.
Or you know falter after the European Union.
You know your savings in mind won't be fundamentally impacted by that -- -- Marlene how we -- -- mutual defense street you increased.
In the interdependent world you're you're liable.
Collapse things can be as dangerous as -- -- -- China's growth goes from 8% to 0%.
We are our economy will get absolutely hammered.
And in this interdependent world one knuckle head with the YouTube you know -- month on the on the Prophet Mohamed.
Can can have a bigger impact around the world than a billion dollar propaganda campaign of a superpower.
And so it's a common -- trying to describe and explain.
What this kind of interdependent world means going forward we think about this doesn't know -- to Romney's.
Top priority is our top form -- positions are one that on his first day in office he would declare China currency manipulator.
And the second he declared Russia are our number one geo political -- and the same time he's doing that the chamber of commerce.
It'll -- against declaring China a currency manipulator and -- actually lobbying to get.
Cold War trade restrictions on Russia lifted and -- -- kind of crazy intertwined all this is.
-- foreign policy up.
I -- -- -- -- -- they attack on our amazulu avail wasn't orchestrated.
From al-Qaeda and all that and yet -- of the administration's -- almost.
That it was so over result all the children -- and the YouTube film also there appears to be.
-- as a cover up -- strongly word.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What what we knew about the threat at the time.
Arm band what kind of security was in place you you get the feeling revealed what you posted a big story -- -- we -- a big story in addition we have excellent this morning.
Bomb and you get the sense that.
-- you have this may be too strong I don't know but.
Still the kind of -- correlated that we would that feel we are ready Gaddafi we do all from the air Libyans had elections.
Good guys kind of -- And we thought it was over and I think what it is we forgot that we've I've talked about this a long time ago during the Libya incident but.
You'll -- during the Iraq court the head of the Iraq War they're very US military did a study.
-- who was -- suicide bombers coming to Iraq.
And I believe the number one source of them -- Saudi Arabia and number two was big -- -- Libya.
So clearly there is some kind of sell there but I think there's -- so maybe we should be asking those questions MD and I know the administration's announce that they have they arm to law internal investigation going on the Q what they say number one.
But number two I think we have to really just even a bigger question -- you see what's going on in Iraq this morning -- -- -- -- 26 killed and another al-Qaeda attack you know.
I mean is there a bigger war going on here than than we are talking about appreciating should we be talking about it more.
-- of those -- the questions I'm really trying to sort out myself.
Right now polio and shares -- loss of nearly.
For a jump opened on -- killed Osama bin Laden.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Because I don't.
If you put something bigger is going on now double -- bomb and then when used the more you learn about this Libya attack I'm -- from -- -- -- -- the paper just like you are.
But the more seems like this was a very big operation done on the basis -- a lot of locally collected intelligence about the nature of the American presence and -- go to the movements of our officials.
And I think it's gonna require broke -- administration's gonna have to come up with some better answers about you know what they did and why.
But I think even the bigger question we have to ask is you know yeah we kill bin Laden but it and I'm I want this to myself this question like.
What is this -- -- who runs -- how it it's still running do we really know are we still really at war with Sam and Walter Russell -- this story and are committed good piece and so on his blog -- -- them just just raising the point does that.
You know -- want to call it what bush called it the good global war on terrorism you know we -- -- think it's behind this is done bush is gone that was so artifact of his administration.
But I think we really do left -- is -- something bigger going on here now.
If we say yes there -- maybe this is the best we can do against -- the best we should do against it but.
I think we need to know a lot more about this Libya thing I think it is a legitimate.
Question -- to be asking right now the administration.
You don't a headline on your comments there is some of that is that there's a -- 13 Pulitzer prizes student riots of the New York -- -- -- travels all over the world.
You don't know more anymore above anything under.
Where you read in the paper and completely out of the loop and start by technological long record we have you ought to be don't noted that.
Correct -- looks to be on the grounds.
Albeit Libya that's fifty duty evidence right now -- I was in trying to 200 US duo is going on that I can tell you.
I you know I wonder I digress -- if -- wants the same things on TV.
I entered you're watching -- football.
-- have so I'm argued on the -- Minnesota -- like -- Shia holiday do yesterday they want because right -- that it.
I guess that patriots fan too but Durham look look at those two what do you what do you football you know we never talk football I was in Texas and I can't back the science global sentiment.
But -- -- tell -- recent actions by James -- bigger they are awesome team they could go a long way this year.
America is like go to -- ever couple -- And other right now they're about 65 miles away.
And missile that's what.
So that's what I was -- Did you want to show Arnold Schwarzenegger on sixty minutes.
I did not I read about it before -- excerpt from madame before he went on but I -- watch him.
Oh my god it was bad I'll let you -- -- of the -- you're watching and make sure that -- It's such it's such disappoint investors now buy it you know.
-- in the Academy Award of disappointed behavior by a public figure you know in one year the two deftly got the austerity no remorse or international.
But expected to -- about.
You know armed.
I feel like Romney's been through obviously this really bad patches last couple weeks there is -- -- yin and Yang of these things he's he's gonna primed for a comeback.
And so we are I wouldn't be surprised if if -- does reasonably well if you -- Libya thing is gonna give him some purchase.
This the other of this -- the economy will yeah I just don't know what people already made up their minds that digest that that's where I think it's really know the key questions.
Well -- the last two weeks square Romney just the old -- 47% thirty SO put him behind the eight ball in the swing states he can't he can't make it up but who knows.
-- -- Martha MacCallum Fox News on which -- we have mark somebody -- while the average federal decision everybody likes our.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Tom Friedman nobody likes.
To work because -- -- different but it was a very good -- parents come January you're charming.
And gracious about me being a late senator you're no problem which is doing this for awhile saw like satellites and you know go to an open period it's -- to Tom Friedman -- -- All of missile.
