So the critics you know are casting some doubt on the president's priorities today because the commander in chief is gonna sit down with the ladies of the view old.
But he has told the Israeli prime minister Benjamin and Netanyahu that his schedule does not really allow for a meeting with him.
While he's in town for the UN general assembly OK so that's the background.
Texas GOP Michael McCall is a member of the foreign relations committee and he joins me now congress and walk on good morning to you.
Furthermore thanks for him what -- think about that.
I think it's.
-- comical when dangerous and it's very insulting to the prime minister of Israel.
Insulting -- greatest ally in the region and and and powers.
Iran with -- nuclear weapons facility.
And you know Martha at a time when we have such a crisis in the Middle East.
With the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda trying to fill the vacuum taking over our embassies killing our ambassadors.
And he has a chance to meet with the world leaders to discuss this very issue and he declines.
I just think it's unconscionable and and furthermore -- Why hasn't he responded to this crisis and he has yet to go on national television address the American people and the world.
To say that we are not gonna tolerate this kind of action to our embassies on American soul.
It's our our embassies have this ambassador was.
Let me he didn't do that red afterwards he he -- cannot make a statement but I think a lot of people agree with you that you know.
The more we learned about it and the deeper the problem appeared to be calm when -- Qaeda.
Looks to -- behind it we have not heard from him since since then on.
I think -- for radio silence.
You know and I think he needs to come forward and address the nation I hope it's more of for the United Nations but they'll take that opportunity by -- takes it.
A strong stance I hope is -- called the question.
Our alliance with Israel because of that -- emboldened engine Iran and these al-Qaeda Muslim Brotherhood forces -- and producers and states.
Let -- listen -- Robert Gibbs who was his former Press Secretary and now with the campaign on this with with that Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday.
They have telephones in the White House last week you talked to the president of Egypt to talk to the the leader in Libya.
We don't need a meeting in Washington.
Just to confer with leaders we've got but he does say that I'm due to bail out here the week we have a strong diplomatic I'm sure Houston had an interview with you on Fox -- you have no problem with that.
So he says me out a little later -- by telephone it's not as if there is in communication going -- What this is the largest attack not on American soldiers was an embassy.
Really since nine elevenths I remember President Bush getting on -- national television addressing the American people.
After that what what I get the viewer is a perception is that he's -- it.
And I think he needs to treat it more seriously.
And addresses there's no question they're having back channel conversations and I hope.
That he's using the -- of foreign aid.
With Egypt to say it like to know we did your military one point five billion dollars.
Where were they protecting our embassy when it -- storm and the fact is they were a law -- -- military was not there are so.
You know we need to condition this foreign -- with with certain -- -- strings to better protect our diplomats are -- Let me let me take you back to the Israel and Bibi Netanyahu top different for just a moment here B Netanyahu in a video -- -- -- -- -- moments ago.
Said wait you know wait for -- because he's very upset that he is being asked to sort of -- hold off.
-- and potentially on a strike back against the progress that Iran is making.
Towards nuclear weapons he believes that the meditation have a red -- and that if Iran crosses that red line.
That there would be -- some form of retaliation do you think that that pressure is the reason that that President Obama does not want to sit down with him at this point.
Well there's no question there's tension between the president of the United States to present Israel.
And I think that needs to be bridged.
But I've got to think that again that the you know I think we're Netanyahu is doing is waiting.
-- what he's been very patient so after the election to -- I -- is -- -- is window his window being able to defend himself is closing very rapidly.
In terms of what he continued -- -- that nuclear.
A facility in this is a very serious issue because of -- the strength of has won not only in the Middle East but also in the Western Hemisphere.
-- recently went down to South America tried border area of -- -- search for the blow up the Jewish community center and has both in the United States.
With this situation is not handled properly.
But we could see Hezbollah operatives lighting up all over.
Not only the Middle East but also this and hemisphere and the United States of America thinks there have Carson thank you very much congress not -- fancy -- and so the.
