-- is more my interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney.
He did say about governor Romney that you felt he was somebody that could lead through an unanticipated.
Crisis like 9/11.
You know oftentimes we focus on one issue and it campaign -- campaign is obviously very focused on the economy rightly so.
But the next president you never know.
His biggest challenge may be -- Nash.
Security issues that's what happened your administration do.
It it's almost a law.
Every administration nearly every administration certainly who face crisis than ever -- -- they'll have to deal with situation that has has developed sometimes -- Got themselves into that -- but.
I remembered for years we were there try to do with the aftermath of Watergate and -- probably the worst constitutional crisis since the civil war.
Gerry Ford never expect that -- never expected -- So -- every administrations -- regulators face with nature to.
-- course in our case it wasn't an eleven in the aftermath.
And I think you -- you look at what Barack Obama's.
He's basically walked away from refused to deal with things like for example the debt crisis.
It's right there for everybody to see -- look at.
I never hear him talk effectively about what's gonna happen we don't -- this issue and oversee any evidence that'll be serious about -- You said that the you know he's trying to pretend that we're not at war.
That's pretty serious charge of me literally it's it's important though because before -- we looked -- terrorist attacks against the United States is the law enforcement problem.
What we learned on 9/11 was 3000 Americans that's not awkward moments of act of war.
And what you move into recognizing.
That it is an act of war then you can bring to bear on.
Resource the United States wouldn't otherwise get applies -- law enforcement for you dealers -- bring the military there your intelligence capabilities and so forth.
That's why it's important that have.
A firm understanding of what the word war -- we just have a law enforcement problem clearly I think with respect to -- the 9/11 -- potential attacks we are at war and.
Let me ask you about that what I view as the rise of radical islamists DC it is now happening.
They got a totally wrong on Egypt.
And the new president more -- there.
You know here's a -- Muslim Brotherhood who now have the Muslim Brotherhood delegation go to the White House.
In July we had another militant group.
Leader invited to the White House Janet Apollo -- that others will follow.
The Muslim Brotherhood.
Organization as a terrorist organization.
It's certainly respond a lot of terrorism and look at people al-Qaeda like the so here.
-- to -- and -- -- It's now it's problem number one in al-Qaeda originally came out of the Muslim Brotherhood these.
Com so it's it's certainly -- spawning ground.
For that kind of radical view of this long that is has been.
Intellectual foundation if you will for groups like cut so I think it's it's very serious proposition.
Lot of people talk about the Arab Spring on the other hand.
I don't think we're going to be that happy -- -- -- what emerges from all as a whole series of nations across the Middle -- that now govern.
By the Muslim Brothers I think that would be both ready has certainly damaged and to our interest well you look at what's happening in those various nations and look what's happening in Egypt.
I think to -- president Morrissey said the Israelis of vampires the Israelis are killers.
The Muslim brotherhood of parliaments and prepare for war with Israel.
-- said the Koran is our constitution -- -- is our guide.
Set of the Bush Administration.
The world's terrorist leader.
He goes on the say we will never forget.
In the future had a hate America.
We're giving one point five billion taxpayer dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood and now leads Egypt is that a mistake.
I'd want to qualify.
Your statement about the one point five billion an awful lot of those of the Egyptian military.
And I think the and I know field Marshal to -- known for years from defense secretaries of the same time we're going.
Closely in the gulf war but -- -- An end to the extent there has been significant US assistant -- these awful lot of that has been.
To into the Egyptian military side I'd keep that mind I think the Egyptian military is one force politically.
Capable of operating in Egypt today and and that counter balance if you will with the Muslim Brotherhood movement was try to do so I would automatically -- --
