Well just yesterday we learned a -- Ronnie an attack on an unmanned US drone flying in the Persian gulf but the attack happened over a week ago.
Former navy hero and congressman -- -- -- is with us now admiral suspect -- -- administration.
-- -- news for a week why do you think it took so long for that tell the American people about it.
I don't know I think it's fair question.
I think transparency in government is one of the things the American people want to have in the media -- -- find out about this in Manhattan.
People talk about something from the government that's unclassified they did tell some Republican lawmakers about it.
But I think.
More rapid you can get information out there in politics be damn that's when it should be about and this issue by the way is not unimportant.
We are developing and I ran with every listening and watching device that we have out there we have to continue to do that because.
We've got to see if they're approaching that red line Sheryl where they might begin.
Designing and because the warhead and enriching material to 90% that we -- immaterial which is that red line for us.
And that's what we're trying to stop and they have not military option is there on the back to the table but that's -- votes for us in the future and what we're trying to do out there.
Iliescu this does a former congressman.
This suspect do you think that it wouldn't change that the dialogue going into the election -- that this news had come out prior.
To -- I don't know I mean I can give you my opinion that I don't think it would have.
I think it -- occurred earlier.
In conjunction with -- some was asserting about being Ghazi that those two together with weeks before might have been able to have a thread of a different type of dialogue out there.
But -- about a week to go I don't think that's the immediate concern of Americans in this election they really were looking domestically.
Particularly about the middle class and that's what the election kind of came out about.
I do think however.
That you're gonna see this -- -- crisis be at the forefront particularly by next spring because the Iranian government is gonna have a change in its own presidency Dan.
And that's when decision time really comes about this red line.
Now that's give us something else that we've -- falling on is about as the -- situation with bank -- in Libya there's there's talk about secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
Potentially testify in Washington I'm curious if you think.
That that wolf further discussion or do you think that her coming on actually saying here's what happened we'll let you the American public Newmont.
For what happened in Libya.
I think absolutely there should be.
That's you know way dialogue on this investigation everything on the open including the secretary testifying looked in the military would only lose an aircraft and I lost one when I had.
Commend my carry about a group for the war over there.
We haven't two investigations one you have immunity the right it's a legal investigation -- everybody's rights are protected but that we have another investigation safety investigation loss of that aircraft where nobody.
It doesn't have does have -- -- this one because we want to find out what happened we -- four men.
-- State Department personnel we lost and there's enough out there to say that we didn't provide for sufficient security when it was requested before.
We should find out what happened so we can prevent it from happening again into -- overarching point the sooner this is done and not taken -- political context to better is for are now thirty interest.
Obviously got a lot more problems the Middle East then just then as they've got the situation between Iran in his -- you've got Syria.
Turkey everything is is frankly heading for destabilization it's it's pretty frightening admiral just suspect thank you very much a former congressman as well thanks for -- I think her.
