Former pentagon official Fox -- national security analyst KT McFarland.
And the former US -- -- to the United Nations Fox News contributor John Bolton thank you both for being here.
-- let's begin with you this is.
Astonished that the man is.
The son in law of Osama bin Laden snuck in to New York City and the administration's style formally preparing -- -- -- civilian trial.
A for a terrorist it's crazy for three reasons first of all.
We are missing out on a lot of intelligence the right to remain -- this guy's been around for ten years he can talk to us about the relationship between al-Qaeda and Iran Intel's with.
-- -- -- The feathery thing that's really crazy to do bands is because.
What kind of to have -- security we have a New York City.
Now the Justice Department fed will be able to protect the terrorists for the rest stop but what about the lone wolf terrorist.
Who's got at this time this is his moment.
To really have -- his waist strap on some.
-- backpack or suicide -- and head down to the subway system the whole world is watching these trials.
And the third thing which is continue -- -- found me.
Is liberals bank if we show our great American jury judicial system and we take terrorism but the minute.
Civilian crime -- civilian trials that somehow they're gonna love us are gonna really respect -- if you don't respect -- assistant parent they want Sharia law.
They think that it doesn't look like strength it looks -- We.
Invest -- -- do you agree.
Outlook the fundamental problem here is a conceptual problem the Obama administration has believed for ideological reasons from the get go that we ought to take.
It and we ought to treat international terrorism like -- criminal syndicate like it's knocking over the local 7-Eleven.
As opposed to people committing acts of war against the United States.
So the debate here is an overdue we Tryon in New York -- do we -- -- -- gitmo the issue is whether.
We're waging a war against terrorism or whether we're racking.
Criminal prosecution awards and and the fact is this approach.
Left America more insecure -- after the 1990s and led to the first two -- September 11 2001.
And if pursued over course of years here as we are we'll leave us more in.
Secure in the future and I'd like to share of the audience the comments by Mayor Bloomberg.
-- -- back in 2010 had this to say in regard to the Obama administration's desire to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York City.
It would be great if the federal government could find a site that didn't cost a billion dollars -- using downtown will.
It's going to cost an awful lot of money and disturb an awful lot of people.
I mean the suggestion of a military base is probably a reasonably good -- And -- that the Obama administration changed its mind in 2010 KG right.
He does not the good mayor want to in any -- disturbed the tranquility of the Obama administration this time.
Well if if it -- -- going to be a problem of -- -- -- it's going to be a problem with respect you and all the of the security issues the expense of it.
The vulnerability of new York and particularly -- we -- told time and time again -- latest rap is not al-Qaeda in Pakistan.
It's not al-Qaeda even in -- the united says it's the lone wolf.
And that's the guy you never see coming and that's the guy that's gonna have to Manhattan.
Wanna -- your Hugo Chavez.
Who the funeral in Venezuela today.
The US delegation led by congressman Gregory Meeks former congressman bill bell on.
Rock and roll Castro there are brand -- -- Sean Penn of course and and Jesse Jackson Jackson giving the eulogy.
Your thoughts ambassador on.
The representation the United States.
In and as well.
Well I would not have sent.
A delegation from Washington that's what you have a staff at the embassy in Caracas for -- they can be there with the rest of the diplomatic corps.
But this this was a gathering of left wingers and anti Americans and why the Obama administration would choose to send anybody official from Washington.
Is absolutely beyond.
What do you think if you.
Well look this isn't guy where are happier that he has moved beyond the question is what happens to -- -- -- -- -- -- Venezuela gonna continue with the oil or six months from now as the music of America around and stuff.
In North Korea.
Talk about public hostility.
Can -- all is.
He is really having quite beside himself and threatening nuclear devastation.
Visiting -- upon the United States.
Your thoughts about otherwise how could react the White House is -- no real.
We'll we'll handle your -- -- threat thank you very.
Making record reassured saying well if -- -- -- in -- -- you're gonna have nuclear weapons via might launch a matter but don't worry about -- what a terrible.
But we would be laughing at this -- for all the antics that he's had between Dennis Rodman between the music videos.
But the fact is he's getting his hands on their weapons and what's going to happen is that they'll be proliferation in South Korea Japan.
They'll sell his nukes to Iran you'll see more news in the region.
In five years we could have five more nuclear from.
And investors 30000 of our troops on the DMZ.
-- in South Korea isn't it about time that we remove those troops because they are clearly in harm's way.
Well the plan is to bring the troops back away from the EMC toward.
The southern part of the peninsula so that they can actually be more effective if North Korea attacks across the DMZ or they can be more readily.
Moved to other places in Asia but it underlines the central point here that the neither the Bush Administration nor the Obama administration.
There's got to be successful in talking North Korea out of its nuclear weapons program we need to go to the Chinese and say it's time to end this artificial division in the Korean Peninsula.
We need your help you're gonna be better off.
In the long term.
-- without a North Korea with nuclear weapons now again over this idea that it's useful buffer state let's get this baggage onto the ash heap of history and reunify the peninsula.
And in terms of the things that this country can accomplish with its own policy rather than depending on the Chinese.
Amongst them would be to remove those 30000 of our troops -- as you just set it back clearly in harm's way and exposed and vulnerable.
Two -- North Korean.
Threat ambassador thanks as always investor John Bolton -- -- and -- thank you and.
