Dark we're waiting in a congress.
For the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak it was president Obama's comment about peace the Middle East that now.
Is in the cross hairs of the Israeli prime minister Netanyahu said to address this joint meeting of congress to outline his vision for secure.
Israeli not Palestinian peace but that does not his -- certainly -- include a return to the borders.
Bret Baier Fox News the host of special report joins us now.
From DC so this is a special meeting or a joint meeting of congress that a joint session but Netanyahu speak yet what has been quite a trip I guess.
A lot of people think the president kind of upstaged -- got -- out ahead of him.
With his speech before he got here but I think we'll hear from the Israeli prime minister today -- Who -- I think he will try to.
Depicts what he believes would be the way forward for a two state solution.
What a Palestinian state would look like.
He will tell lawmakers were told.
Israel wants to move forward -- bold steps to enable a peace process to move forward but.
As has been talked about over recent days cannot move forward back to those 1967.
Create essentially a small waist in the middle.
The body of -- Israel basically eight to nine miles that.
Is essentially in.
Indefensible according to the Israelis right also -- make clear.
And the president I should point out made clear as well at APEC that.
If this union between Hamas said -- top actually happens.
That they -- not going to be able to sit down with an organization that's still is bent on destroying Israel.
But let's talk a little bit about this and look at a shot of the House of Representatives -- we -- that prime minister Netanyahu speech to take place there today.
The the White House strategy bread and all of this because a lot was made about the president using the language that suggests we could go back to the pre 1967.
Borders but then.
You know you heard the White House and the president.
Don't backtracking is the right word or clarifying is probably the word they would use.
Using negotiated land swaps and saying that basically take any border -- would be negotiated between the two sides -- that doesn't seem to have been enough.
For the Israelis wasn't.
Sure you know it's very interesting how this whole speech on Thursday last Thursday came together for President Obama and what exactly was behind the scenes were told from various reports that there was a lot of give and take him back and forth about the use of 1967.
Borders that those two work stated the date and the border.
Come and they're very loaded and they come with them a lot of understanding a lot of meaning.
The White House is now saying that the emphasis was taken away from the land swaps part of the speech and that they were misunderstood.
The problem is is that in anything.
And this has been going back years and years and years everyone knows that all of this language is loaded and that when you say you say it with a mean.
And so you're still trying to figure out I think many analysts here in Washington are still trying to figure out the -- the original purpose of the speech.
Because one would think that all of the attention.
And then -- clarification of a -- over the weekend.
Really wasn't what this White House wanted to do.
Well yeah it is it's very very.
Interest -- because you're right any time this and -- one of these issues that diplomat a just a normal person looking at it might not recognize the quote unquote diplomatic language that's so important these types of things.
Bret thank you very much -- it's great to see -- you.
And we'll watch you tonight and every night special report Fox News Channel 6 PM eastern time.
