Quality as he -- the pain medication and -- not -- -- -- Aren't good government.
Ought to go there Batman and that's all we ever gonna get to low bottom -- what happened.
But that doesn't.
World just two parts of what happened -- -- the basic decisions about not providing more security and you know that's that's one thing we'd like to learn about the people who made the coal.
A provider of not to provide -- back up.
And then check the latest global quote -- quote talking points issue but it cannot chemical larger point I actually find been -- a bit of the distraction yeah.
In this little -- I don't mean to trivialize an American ambassador was killed and -- other Americans were killed.
Given all the stuff that's on the foreign policy played at the moment.
And you're given the fact that we did did this and it's gonna have to make all sorts of decisions potentially about a new national security cabinet.

Took so we -- the security lessens.
Is looming larger than arguably the truth.
And what overshadows -- Palestine and Egypt -- Select -- number everything from what's going on in Asia with China to.
Iran's nuclear quest.
I think it's only a question of time before Jordan becomes the next place in the Middle East where you're seeing real turbulent she you mentioned the Palestinian.
Is -- really -- that we do that it took a long list.
And the and boxes it is it's pretty difficult and it just seems to me.
Indeed if you're gonna talk about -- -- almost say let's talk about the lessons of the intervention in Libya and what are really -- that and what what what does this tell us about going into these countries and trying to remake of and all that look -- -- -- to trivialize what happened -- -- -- Americans -- -- -- -- -- -- But as a policy matter as a political matter -- seems to me it's picking up an awful lot of oxygen.
Example throughout our history and that there -- numbers don't work and Tucker and the doctor Richard also the council.
Formulations -- -- example.
When we have intervened and -- -- helicopters.
Soon to impose our system of government or at least try to.

Long term occupation what McArthur did in Japan but the United States and other.
Western powers student in Germany.
And lose quote -- quote occupations.
Real the really took him.
I think that what we've -- -- -- occupation but it's been a presence in South Korea has -- South Korea is going from talk the authoritarian -- to robust.
Democracy and there's been US troops there now for what sixty -- It's what -- here.
This afternoon so Saud Al Schwartz and a few places where which makes a central channel weren't ever word on.
Which it is a big mistake the -- I take from this is that all that's gotta -- Tip O'Neill meets foreign policy all politics is local and you've got to ask yourself.
Give us the local history and culture in the nature of the society and all that isn't likely to work and here we get into political correct planned real well.
But it seems to me and many of these countries in the Middle East I just fairly.
-- big questions.
About what the potential is for what we would call democracy or something that resembles -- taking taking root.
You know while this strike me as one of the things.
But remember you should've -- out of business saturation and -- of yeah.

A year or two ago was either -- in the streets another empower them the real question is are they willing to share what we're seeing in the justice what you might call majority -- -- rather than democracy.
And what they're trying to do was push through a degree of concentrated or consolidated political power.
I'm not sure they're prepared to accept what you and I might call -- and balances.
And even though he may have played or did play a fairly -- -- limited hand the other day with that Israeli Hamas.

And showed their job -- secretary of state increasingly seems to be someone who spent an awful lot of time on his or her bicycle going overseas.
And what happens -- the White House is at least if not more important but but the bottom line is of course that matters this is the person.
Represented the United States and -- situations it's it's one of the voices that the president here's what it comes to the making of national security policy.
And I think there is saying you know a difference whether it's John Kerry or -- -- -- or somebody else just given their background and expressed.

Not just in the senate but doing all sorts of diplomatic Overture was actually a fairly important firemen if you world.
For this president for this administration.
Indeed both the and the vice president Joseph Biden -- an awful lot of time complementing and somewhat with Hillary Clinton.
