Actors -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think she's got a very good job of presenting -- interest -- -- -- travels on to replace I don't think she's been a terribly effective member of the cabinet.
Because I don't think Obama listens -- or think you listen to this group in the White House it's very politicized.
It's not foreign policy experts as much as people who are looking after the political main -- When you listen to Biden.
Now making this is that a guy you know the guys in the White House and a -- all the more political people.
It is apparent political people for several the National Security Council which is normally -- -- Someone like Henry Kissinger -- real experts.
And the Obama administration they've been political people without any -- professional expertise and I think frankly that's where they've had a lot of really dumb mistakes that.
Wonder we know one her advice.
-- -- would be Washington.
How well we just -- hasn't figured and stuff like I'm Afghanistan policy.
She spent a lot of time Africa's -- or Asia.
Middle -- not sometimes the -- Direct do we know what she thinks ought to be done in Afghanistan for example no we don't -- But I don't think that in a farewell so.
If they don't want -- I think is interesting is the -- whole thing about them Ghazi and the ambassador and how she testified.
What I would always struck me as very weird that Hillary Clinton who is responsible for embassies around the world.
Didn't testify and didn't go go for a let's talk shows so I checked her schedule that day she is available.
She just didn't -- -- I've got to since she was way too Smart.
To go out and say something that they waters say it was -- -- -- so do you think just Susan rise.
-- veteran and.
I think Susan Rice just saluted -- -- -- she wants a job she wants a secretary of state the administration came to her seven got a big job for you in Russia to go out all the talk shows.
And say that there was nothing to do with terrorism that it was all about spontaneous.
Flash mob -- got out of control so no mention about -- Well I sent dumb lady I think she just -- -- in order to do and at that point.
I was nobody when I -- are gonna have to derivatives and -- the question McConnell I don't want abort your.
Through its mission that let you think -- no matter.
Probably more -- You better but -- -- think it didn't get into the -- administration came and and they decided everything bush it was wrong so they're gonna during differently.
Bush let from the fresh -- from behind bush sent in ground troops in Afghanistan and Iraq elder from the air and -- Bush had a provisional government in Iraq we're not gonna do -- -- bush -- contractors in Iraq to provide security.
We're gonna use the Libyans to provide security but it -- a 180 degrees away from that's a song that's.
You think Douglas.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Situation when the administration.
Is gonna develop into Watergate like -- I think that nobody paid much attention to it except fox.
And talent -- him a sex scandals and turns and that everybody wanted to take a second look at it.
At the end of the day I'm not sure that anybody pays a whole lot of attention to it the longer further away from me again.
Well they should that they won't I don't think -- I do think.
That there -- a whole lot of unanswered questions and our bodies so confused we're wanted to get much attention to -- Not it's -- them.
Until it -- -- the president -- Clara that.
Number administration lied about it.
And of course managed about the differences I was in the White House during Watergate and the difference is that the mainstream media -- -- the press never liked Nixon and so.
I think depressed and doggedly pursue that story with Obama he's got a press that's very very favorable anything he says so -- -- -- and -- I was in the White House situation room violent and everyday I was eighteen years old and -- -- the president's daily brief also liked him and some one else.
-- -- was gone around drunk talking now.
Now -- was very embarrassed I would be MM Oval Office every day.
You know to accept America and south and he was just very just and fair amount not a political guide -- unless politicians serve for our cameras page -- And Nixon was never like that but he was actually -- -- -- -- And a -- my current owners could spread present value as a sentence and except it was cycle of a lot about it but.
There were reports in the waning days there.
That he was strong going around -- -- volatile portraits of you know.
-- president's you know.
And just in Jerusalem and order is it was a them as was Al Haig who have been really netstat.
Who was the chief of staff and a added that the White House is there is like a ghost town that point because.
After Watergate -- during Watergate.
One after another people were being fired were were were -- their office so.
It was like going through an office building where -- lots of empty desks and empty offices and the only people remaining in the White House which isn't his office.
And our staff a few people in the press office -- and then Al -- And his deputy general Georgetown.
What did you think was gonna happen desert was sense of impending doom -- You know I think that people left in the White House kept trying to believed in value -- it sounds like believing in -- you want it to be true.
And even now mounting evidence that there was something very run under run you kept believing.
And then for me it was a Saturday night -- works in the White House that day was driving home.
And I heard on the radio that Nixon had fired everybody and fired the special prosecutor in the attorney general.
I just pulled over this -- -- -- -- -- She's just been ones in line.
And at that point.
We knew that Nixon would be would resign within a few days and so them quickly where our are separate they wanted to action.
To try to do briefing books and to prepare then vice president forward for -- presence.
-- -- -- -- -- Well can you mansion -- and here -- gagged and these him seem accomplishments in foreign policy.

And how else.
Well anyway that's remains our -- until there are some back to -- A loss is related.
Development and humble start to those from -- of the start.
You know ever cavaliers Hamas a lot a couple of missiles over Israel and -- or wax and act amendments -- -- at the beginning at this time it's very very different.
Why because this time it's all about Iran.
Hamas started it.
But then Israel did -- you know like that Clinton definitely go ahead make my day -- and so Israel -- decided it counterpunch and Israel's objective is to destroy.
All the missiles.
The 101000 or more missiles and there's some 10100 or so long range missiles capable of reaching their population centers.
And to destroy them now because six months from now if Israel decides it wants it to a preemptive attack against Iran's nuclear sites.
Iran would retaliate by unleashing those missiles Seles is think of it is like a preemptive attack -- preemptive attack so legitimate no she's foreign.
Well you know again it's all about Iran Israel is ready for a cease -- think they've achieved their objective is destroyed those missiles now but Iran but Hamas.
You know there's impala and -- and the Gaza Strip sonic one guys in -- -- must may be ready.
For a cease fire but there's this group called a Palestinian Islamic Jihad are closely aligned with Iran.
They may act and they could keep the -- you have 99.9.
Percent of people who want a peace deal and a small group who says I'm gonna sabotage in the Gaza.

Portland is trying to do I think she's trying to dark she's kind of tried a couple -- get -- agreed to cease fire and then -- and then to have for a set -- And so what needs air it's easy for everybody's sake let's have a cease fire.
What's hard is the day after how do you make sure that it's in forest.
And who enforces it and that's the -- console we're been talking about a substance entered before way before women talking about this for 2000 years -- ridiculous amount.
Kissinger underserved talent and at the time -- again and out I was in the White House 1973 Kissinger did the shuttle diplomacy he always said.
The only time people actually agreed to a cease fire and to stop fighting.
Is when they both have gotten their objectives -- -- on -- objective I think Hamas hands of the question is does Iraq Iran would be thrilled.
If there's a big air Israeli war because and Israel's preoccupied dealing with its neighbors in Iran can go ahead and -- -- and their weapons.
