-- story Muslim violence against the USA on Wednesday President Obama said this about Egypt.
I don't think that we would consider them an -- but we don't consider them an enemy that there are new government that is trying to find its way.
They were democratically elected.
But yesterday the State Department changed that story.
You're saying that the administration is that important still regard Egypt as a major non NATO -- of the stool.
-- recipient of all the crew of the privileges that that -- Yes.
Right here now general Wesley Clark former NATO supreme allied commander Egypt and ally.
Yes they're considered a major non NATO ally you're not an ally a NATO is -- like Japan or South Korea but words there's no mutual defense treaty.
But we -- -- with a very closely there's a partnership fair to literally get out of Egypt right now because I -- the Muslim Brotherhood obviously doesn't like us.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- No I think there's a certain amount corporations are going on the military's -- motors in school in the United States they speak English.
We share information and perspectives on the region -- it's useful.
We don't make an enemy of history what we have to send them some kind of message though because that was it -- we have sent a message and what president called and he's a moderate -- -- sit -- very tough to them you know.
You wouldn't I TI dot com three months well here's why wouldn't do because actually what you've got there is a little bit of internal power struggle between.
Very very radical elements that are in the -- lists that are associated and the more moderate most of people region would have nothing to do with these with these people that are demonstrated stormed the embassy they -- and everything to do with them.
Attacking the government you you weaken the government.
In the eyes of the people I ask a lot newest public believes -- -- office this is so office play.
Yeah gain power and embarrass the government.
But I think you have to give the government an incentive.
To protect Americans I think you have to -- look.
It's like a kid it's like they're -- a million dollars a year from his belt they've got a big incentive yet -- that you die if you -- three months of that and you say you do it again it's going.
Then you give them incentive to cooperate because as we all know they didn't do that but.
They were complicit in that attack on the embassy and that's a disgrace that is a disgrace it's an outrage in violation of international law you won't know that there were complicit in this -- -- -- them.
Yet he's the -- -- -- fine because they don't.
You'll lose that.
An animal we will resume and be on January 1 because we wanna have good relations but don't do it again we gonna -- at all we don't know what the president.
Did say more -- probably was very very tough with them but here's the thing when you say they're complicit.
There are always people in these countries who are not sympathetic to the United States and some -- and security forces.
And what we have to do is we have to bring these countries more course are aligned with the west.
And it has to sensitive articles soft power doesn't want to talk -- Obama's been very sort -- -- -- here it's very I have power with all respect I haven't seen any tough power directed by President Obama at any Muslim nations including Iran he's definitely the drone attacks in -- -- against.
That's against terrorists are -- whole night against the government's it was definitely against the -- public opinion and Pakistani was a very tough stance.
And it cause as cause a lot of friction with the governor percent of possibly do look a bit what I -- I'm glad you -- that's that's one of the areas patties -- -- let let let's get a better look at this seal raid.
It took out a -- and I always have in the -- -- -- incredible an -- but Pakistan puts the guy who made the rain possible.
The doctor all right in prison for 33 years that -- in -- -- what do we do about that nothing while you don't know what we've -- about their pieces.
-- very general dollar loss on there a lot of issues behind the scene.
And under the table were I know that always is true and -- that what is -- like an X rays are pockets -- So there's lots -- portion and -- that you don't see and there's lots of action going back and forth across that border.
So we have a disagreement you and me I don't believe the Obama administration has been tough enough on the government's I think they've done a good job on al-Qaeda.
And did the terrorists but I don't think they've sent -- proper message.
Last question I believe bush and Cheney were much more feared.
By these governments.
Which -- and Afghanistan again that is unbelievable things from us then.
The Obama administration am -- wrong.
Well I don't think it's mercurial I don't know if you're right or wrong but they didn't respond to any better to bush and -- and I have.
To the United States -- -- -- -- us more trouble now than they don't article not at all not at all no in fact they re started.
They hold Calabar movement under President Bush after it was almost defeated in 2001 and 2002 and pushed in -- -- you don't see any by 2005 they thumbed their nose that is in -- that last question do you think there is a Muslim problem in the world I mean I think the you know not most Muslims are good people we've always said that.
But there's a substantial minority that hates us and they continue to cause trouble.
-- I think that there are elements in a lot of there are a lot of factions that don't like the United States.
Two or Islamic there's no doubt about it.
They used the United States is a symbol.
In their own internal power struggles to divert attention away from themselves -- -- to embarrass the governments that are trying to work with us.
