On guys but I want to go to something else for just a moment we report this all morning -- track and the president.
This morning -- about an hour ago he stopped by engine 54 -- having lunch with some firefighters there this is the firehouse.
That lost fifteen of their men.
On September 11 Adam Shapiro.
Is downtown at ground zero for us right now the president due to arrive at just over an hour from now understanding of the special guest out of.
A very special guest one of the fifty people is gonna meet with the president after he lays a wreath at ground zero Debra Burlingame joins us now her brother was the pilot.
Of the aircraft that crashed into the Pentagon on September 11 2001.
And we appreciate your being -- us.
You're one of a few people are gonna be able to meet with the president a couple of questions first is what do you think of all of this is this.
The appropriate thing for the president to do now that Osama bin Laden is dead.
I I have been a very mixed feelings about it I think that this is certainly a victory lap for President Obama and -- to be credited for allowing me.
A joint a special operations to go forward.
But it does -- -- the bitter taste in people's mouths when he's hand picked people and he's disappoint a lot of family members who thought he actually was going to be meeting with Sam is at ground zero we're going to be -- a couple blocks over there in a little room away from where he lays -- -- and gets -- that a lot.
Let me guess you could see you've said you've shared with me that you believe this is also up political stunt that the president is is about to take part and and why do you think -- -- -- people are pointing out to disagree with you that he's not making his speech is not -- -- a formal discussion.
A lucky for him that he's not making a speech because at -- times he.
He gets in front of the press that this story on what actually happened keeps changing and it's it's -- a little body for him so.
And I think he's meeting perhaps with families in -- under -- you know and in of them.
In a location without the press so that he can't be accused of politicizing but I guess I put that money is gonna have a White House photographer there those pictures.
I gonna be delivered a lot faster than they Osama bin Laden had shot.
Let me wrap up with you Tom what would you ask the president if you could ask him one question.
I would ask him if he's going to be honest with the American people and give credit to the unsung heroes that is the CIA interrogators who got the critical information that led to.
The location of summit bin Laden in enhanced interrogations at gitmo and secret sites.
And whether he is going to encourage his attorney general.
To sand down the special prosecutor who is as -- -- there.
Looking into possible criminal prosecution of those very see it CIA interrogators.
Who got that information.
That led to -- on -- I think that is.
Pretty much an outrageous travesty in those that those those guys are heroes and they should get to enjoy in this party to.
