-- enemy of Saudi Arabia at that point Saudi Arabia to rest any -- -- relief aid.
So the new interim government the two top guys were very close to Saudi Arabia.
General CC spent time Saudi Arabia as a defense -- -- And the judge similar -- so I was fascinated to see the first countries that recognized the new interim government.

They now know how we go and do our intelligence and then finally what of Snowden -- let me opportunities and federally humiliate the United States you -- Obama saying they're going to be strong.
Consequences and repercussions if we don't gets -- back and then a few days later when I was very we're getting -- back.

The government itself the State Department the power of the executive has not been able to bring him.
Are or any other known.
Back to the United States.
The the United States do you have a sense that we're actually doing something -- vigorously to.
To bring this person back to to capture and to bring this person -- We're doing is making phone calls to countries to say don't you take him.
-- and it seems to be having a little bit of a fact but I would take a step back and look at all the things you just talked about what's happening in the Middle East -- -- when you look like helpless -- That's the -- It's -- -- -- thank you very much nothing helped us about today -- -- especially with us.
