Giving new op -- this morning by Liz Cheney is blasting president Obama's handling of the deadly attacks overseas and in it she writes deaths.
The president appeared in the Rose Garden less than 24 hours later to condemn the Libya assault.
And failed even to mention the attack in Egypt the message sent to radicals throughout the region.
If you assaults and American embassy but don't tell anyone the US president won't complain.
-- the administration's performance in -- crisis was appalling it wasn't surprising.
It is a logical outcome of three and a half years of Obama foreign policy eyes and joining me now to respond to that.
Tim -- is -- national security advisor.
For the Obama campaign he is also the former ambassador.
To India has drama welcome good to have you here good to see you thank you mark good to see you against it you respond -- to what she says and the fact that.
He did not mention the scaling of the walls and Egypt in that statement in the Rose Garden.
Well -- Martha I've briefly -- -- -- cheneys piece in the Wall Street Journal this morning couple thoughts.
One she uses terms like apologizing.
Bill just read the piece on your news program it is the president of Yemen.
To the United States -- the people of Libya apologizing.
For what happened.
To the United States.
And it's President Obama that is effectively using the power of America military power special ops power.
To make friends around the world to exert our power and to make the world a safer place and let me give me a couple examples.
Ask bin Laden if he's better off today that he was four years ago.
The president used effectively American.
Power there and took bin Laden out for those 9/11 attacks and we he has effectively used drones to decimate al-Qaeda.
He has responsibly.
And honorably brought our troops come out of Iraq.
-- he has worked around the world -- example to promote jobs when I was in India.
To sell products around the world sustaining 25000.
New jobs or current jobs by selling things and India are on the -- back into -- doesn't happen out of her -- frankly is -- -- -- -- and they aren't the.
What -- -- them.
-- I don't OK I understood and that's why have you on today and I wanna go through it -- one more statement by her that answer brings up some of the issues that that you just mentioned.
So let's take a look at this and because directly to your point she says in too many parts of the world America is no longer viewed as a reliable ally.
Or an enemy to be feared.
Don't take my word for it she says just ask prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Even as his country faces an -- essential threat from Iran and he can't get a meeting.
With President Obama so it as you sit in your piece you know ask us on a lot -- he's better off for years later.
She's basically raising a similar point asked Benjamin Netanyahu if he feels that our relationship.
Is better off for years later.
Like the president has -- countless times with the prime minister of Israel we have a very good relationship with Israel.
In fact when -- met Rodney visited.
-- Israel on his recent trip that didn't go so well when he went to great Britain and Poland and Israel.
When he left Israel led the defense minister of Israel sad they haven't had a better friend for Israel in decades -- President Obama.
Oust Moammar Qaddafi.
How the United States uses its power effectively to get rid of tyrants.
It was let's try to for the most of the fittest -- -- so we have that is it is.
And you know there -- clearly addressed your question.
And and am and I'm going back to your response to the question which was that the relationship is good.
And yet many would say that that it is complicated that's very tense that Benjamin Netanyahu stood up the other day basically said wait we should wait.
What should we wait for.
With regard to Iran.
Many has seen a continuous march in Iran towards.
A nuclear weapons capability that brightens our good neighbor and ally in Israel and feel that not enough has done.
And perhaps in Israel's case they would say not enough -- -- to put a red line.
That if crossed would allow them to take some action on their own and and didn't you know -- -- -- we noticed there -- -- question behind.
So let's look at the relationship between the United States and Israel under the Obama administration.
Record levels of security assistance from the American people to Israel to.
Has even security seventy million in additional funding.
Above the record levels to help the Israeli people create.
Called iron down there.
A three we've worked very effectively with the international community.
Including some partners that don't.
Reliably work with us in a lot of ways to tighten sanctions on Iran the most difficult and effective sanctions I think.
Ever imposed on any state.
To try to make sure that they can't get that capability.
So across the board I think the president has articulated.
Both the United States security interest there with our relationship with Israel and Israeli security interest to -- thank you very much good to have you here today -- have -- thanks Martha thanks for having me as I get back we would like to thank you mark felt.
