Republicans now pushing the president to provide more answers what's happening in -- in the rest of the Arab world and this time tomorrow.
President Obama will have the world stage to himself addressing the United Nations General Assembly so what does he need to say.
At the UN Republican senator John -- sort of Wyoming member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee with an announcer good morning to you.
Legitimate piece -- at Politico today you see the president of first must acknowledge that the war against terrorism is not over.
Why is that even an issue.
-- because earlier this year bill the president said that one of his.
Most proud achievements it was the fact that they've restored -- respect for America around the world and yet we see these very tragic events.
That have been happening in the Middle East we know that this is actually part of the war on terror.
The president wanted to blame it on on -- poorly put together a video that's not it this is something that was planned premeditated to a -- on September 11.
And the president should and doesn't shouldn't be.
Claiming that the American people are so naive that they would actually believe this is because of a video the second thing.
War the second thing you want to hear is clarifying where the United States stands with the country of Israel I heard you on another program earlier today.
Saying that this is the rockets relationship with Israel that you can remember.
-- -- Between the United States and Israel.
In maybe thirty years it's the rocky is a relationship with the president says -- the people of Israel we have your back.
I think that the president needs to tell the world what that actually.
A means to you know when the president came into office he said that he was -- -- open relations in discussions.
With Iran Iran is closer today to having nuclear weapon than ever before they may only be.
Months away and and the people in Israel and the people in America as well as all around the world need to know what the president actually means when he says.
Have you met your third point and this is a broad reaching explain exactly what your foreign policy here it's the president what what why is that not clear.
Almost four years and that's because the president talked about pressing the reset button with Russia and now what we know -- happened with with Russia is they've been blocking -- across.
The continent specifically at the United Nations with.
Sanctions against Assad of Syria and what is happening there with the just that this tragic.
It day by day.
Carnage that is happening in the streets of Syria and and Russia continues to block that.
We have sanctions against Iran we know that China is funneling money.
To Iran the president talked about a a new day with with with the Muslim world because of his background.
Yet we've seen nothing to that effect and I think actually relations are worse now than they were.
That when he became president so I know what the president promised.
Four years ago those are not things that we can believe there are not what is happened and then -- the tragedy.
In in Libya just two weeks ago.
Is something that you know his.
Has infuriated people all across the United States and understood let me get back to live in a moment disagreements in your first answer -- that went -- -- what why does that even matter.
What has spoken new way.
Well if it matters because people around the world.
Listen and the president is the commander in chief his words actually carry weight.
The American people and people everywhere listen to him when we need to know what the where America stands what our foreign policy.
Actually is when the president goes.
And and visits with the president of -- has just wait till I get reelected we're all have more flexibility.
I think the American people have a right to know before the election well what the implications of that are.
You know -- wonder if we're gonna hear more apologies about the video -- the seventy grand -- -- Pakistan.
Air commercials last week apologizing for -- the government had nothing to do with.
When ultimately do we hold those responsible.
And accountable and Libya.
For the killing of our US ambassador few I remember a time when -- when Marines were -- in Berlin in Qaddafi heard about it in Libya.
The -- -- it doesn't seem yet that this president is holding.
To the to the actions -- that that have been.
-- that they've done and you know what we've seen this we've had a briefing last week the so called top secret briefing with the secretary of state.
To me it seemed more like that either it was either cover up or it was incompetence on the part of this administration recover get to the bottom of this because they were not really.
With the members of the senate a cover -- you stand by that thought well I do you look what's look what does Secretary Rice to say.
She came out with information -- -- was the video.
What -- That this was just something that got out of hand.
People don't show up for a demonstration with you know go with -- rocket launchers for for grenades.
And the kind of heavy weaponry.
Bill that would of people showed up within in Libya at that embassy.
This was on 9/11.
This was coordinated I believe it was premeditated planned I don't know -- -- -- weeks -- months in advance but it was aimed at the United States -- on the anniversary of the September -- him -- answers we get -- large number -- -- thank you for your -- today its executives are.
