Hello I'm Charles -- NN tonight for Neil Cavuto well 2009 winding down but national security ramping up.
It's our calls -- -- after the president himself called for a fifth what happened on Christmas Day systematic failure.
But all the right people place in the right folks around right now and could fix these lapses or really do heads roll.
We'll see -- that the author of how capitalism will save us is also ahead of a media empire and former presidential candidate.
Who knows a thing it to about dealing with difficult situation -- welcome to the show could -- -- this crisis management that is you know at its height.
We think so for how to -- perform.
Up -- -- -- failure and that's why he did what he did yesterday's acknowledging that there are systemic failures there.
-- have a zone a secretary of Homeland Security go on TV and say initially.
The system work when it was just the courage but the people on that plane that preventative disaster and the -- not being able to work quickly enough that.
-- it was was.
-- public relations so systematic failures put someone is probably gonna take the fall Janet upon a Tel -- just refer to one -- -- talk shows.
Said initially that the system worked -- she -- -- be the -- person on this thing.
Could very well be in the presence also learning a very valuable lesson it's not enough to say something this is the policy.
He also up to get in the nitty gritty of the people around you -- know how to get in the -- -- to make sure.
There's actual whopper ration between agencies how do you follow through to make sure these things are being done.
Well if you were in the president's place how would you handle this here I mean obviously I think waiting the three days also I mean just that the silence was deafening.
It potentially for me silence was deafening and then to say alleged act as he did the president did in his first statement.
People picked up on that one of the charitable way to say -- don't Harvard Law School.
Now he's commander in chief.
And one of the things -- has to do Charles is acknowledged this is a war on terrorism on extremism Islam extremism.
Stop this trying to get around using language and George Bush used.
He's in charge he's got to mobilize the American people and makes a difference in terms of how you govern these bureaucracies -- they think.
You take this with intense seriousness one think he should -- should do.
Should be good PR this call first session with Rudy Giuliani who know something about dealing with terrorism.
So I don't know if you've got -- -- that's important but.
So -- have to roll.
Who who besides Rudy Giuliani within the administration do you think it's up to the task.
Well providers anyone you know he's had to bring in somebody from from the outside the attorney general who still talks about trying these terrorists is there is that there are two common criminals.
In New York City and elsewhere no that's not gonna work Eric -- is not the one.
So we can go outside and why not pick a Republican -- may not get Rudy Giuliani but show that this is a bipartisan thing.
We're not gonna happen politics get in the way of security and show that he serious about it one of -- things that he did this summer when he did these seemingly apology speech -- At -- give people the sense that he doesn't take the threat seriously he can wipe the slate clean now.
We'll talk about wiping the slate clean -- you know you talked about perhaps going back at some of the things he's been doing before.
A lot of experts as saying this is a great opportunity now to reverse its decision on gitmo.
That gitmo works by the way that's a major gitmo connection particularly with the and that the fact that that he goes back on a promise the fact that he admits he's wrong show she's strong.
That OK something doesn't work we're gonna try something else that he's not gonna stick to something just -- a stubborn pride.
-- popularity -- go up on that.
OK so that the year turns around comes around.
The longer he waits the worse this becomes and is -- like the Tiger Woods.
Analysts think -- really -- at eight today that he does that say something on this thing even after the vehicle yet today which great you know was the most -- -- -- form.
To your point they are starting that use the word terrorists and terrorism a little bit more.
But still is in the clock ticking -- some decisive action.
Yes in terms of both personnel and why not have a meeting come back from Hawaii give up the vacation -- unit commander in chief for.
For four years or eight years the clock is -- going to be your -- not your friend.
And -- call a meeting of your -- a top security people head of the CIA and a half have a meeting on why National Security Agency didn't go according -- to step up.
Stuff up and bring in some former security people if not Rudy Giuliani somebody else.
The show that he's reaching out and trying to get on top of this thing and let's say goes that -- how much of that should be transparent we heard about transparency of course health care bills done mostly behind closed doors.
How much of this though for the American public's confidence should be transparent now in the open.
Well in terms of announcing birdied everybody together -- past the -- figure this thing that people would understand that you do behind closed doors you don't want to give and certainly secrets or something that would help the enemy.
But the fact you have the meeting and the cameras clicking away you have this meeting -- gonna take it seriously.
And then bring in some people have another meeting bring in some intelligence people from overseas.
He does not to be -- the had that meeting but B Darren show that this guy takes this seriously he's in charge he's making things happen.
We'll do him and the country world good get a taste it I guess it's -- out -- was a lot easier to criticize when you're sitting in -- seat and actually happens and that's a lonely position is elected -- headlights so far thanks a lot by the way happy new year happy new year Charles I really appreciate.
