Yes and you know going into this -- really at using he -- to accomplish one way you.
And then the American people are -- application.
For the world and American -- and it and backhand.
Actually slightly out there and that we hear that they disagree with partner it's quite that slightly differently and yet my mind I was early on.
There's a lot of luck records rhetoric.
There was a lot you know the usual mischaracterization.
Of Obama's record.
When it really change happen.
He was charged -- Laying out what what you actually -- here is actually.
It really it is.
Have they and it track a lot of what he's better at least let every packaging.
Obama has actually been there.
We keep caring for example from Republicans that the president.
Has not been a friend -- is really hasn't done enough for Israel and the fact actually don't comport with that.
I would ask the Israelis you have heard it you know and not prime minister and it accurate -- minister -- -- -- Thanking this administration.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's accurate security assistance that's higher than any final history.
The relationship between our military.
And ever there is no light between -- arm in terms of the here it is now.
And the Israelis themselves.
-- openly and publicly and repeatedly now.
Let's -- -- some of the other areas of the world for example when he talks about trying to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon he doesn't seem to credit the president with having.
More sanctions were crippling sanctions and have several we've ever seen before.
And the fact that according to Leon Panetta.
They are in fact quite a bit away from any.
Development that we would have to worry about immediately.
It -- estimate that an honest you know.
You know they airway.
Device and even more time if you look at what.
Ever that side that we do have.
The -- and together.
And are crippling sanctions ever any country.
We it I'm.
Not high like 50%.
Really hurting body.
In a way that we it could change her on her.
When you look at what -- bit on the page.
Well what do you think that there are doing that he -- this edition of well.
At the party and that -- at our options on the table.
Which segment that we -- would Michelle floor knowing former undersecretary of defense for policy in the Obama.
Also -- when we hear from Mitt Romney and his supporters of the president hasn't done enough to support emerging democracies.
He was the Bush Doctrine to help.
Move countries toward democracies which means that they get to vote for who they would like to see in power yet now they come under for example Egypt comes under.
Scrutiny because the Muslim Brotherhood in the president -- -- blamed.
Four -- democratic.
Movement in any -- -- that does make any sense.
You put your finger on something really important it is a great example where Romney.
-- -- he doesn't know what that was -- you know what he thinks that he can't which decides that he's made it that could take those that.
We haven't supported democracy in the and that's the part that action now we're dealing with Obama in the appearances the president.
Early on in the air -- -- -- right that he supported.
The people in here and there are -- basic human -- greater political participation.
The -- -- school and government well.
He also then work to try to make sure that the Egyptian military -- on the sidelines.
And so that you can.
Revolution in the end the much shorter and less bloody well -- did you know.
It again at the reds had a history and -- -- book.
And so you know I I'm not sure exactly what.
Governor Romney's team is here which is we have a profanity and our government.
And sharing -- our interest to protect them -- -- global war.
Was that a misstep for the administration to blame what happened in -- -- On a video.
You know I think that the administration was very open with the American people sharing what information they knew it -- time.
The initial assessment which we always know any situation usually.
Either rob or not the full picture initial I think our partners are here like the Pittsburgh -- after video.
And in the days that followed it became clear that there was involvement.
-- here if -- it.
Loosely with I think I think the investigation the president heads aren't.
Well -- they're ballot -- -- and -- let them out and get a Fuller picture the American people it it will also I think.
-- that can't and you know -- can't follow up on his pledge which is to hold whoever is accurate.
Accountable and I think you know.
-- -- a presence here I think given his pursuit of unbalanced.
I'll come you care that Americans.
This at a couple other trouble spots before we part company in Afghanistan the president -- -- of the -- quite funny fourteen.
I'm not there were Mitt Romney reduced in critical of that but won't -- -- stay -- longer would it be any reason to even stay in beyond that.
And it's hard to say it was against the Anaheim in any sport I'm I'm -- -- -- I'm kind of criticized here.
It's not against -- I think example.
He had not thought about -- air -- keep it here.
Which uses the president has put it on a transition at and it -- -- and -- -- you know as Afghan forces you know leave from more than 50%.
We're on a cat dragged down hardship that they -- apparent interest of the American people line.
What -- stop -- -- he had.
It and and and -- Afghanistan.
Convention speech which.
Was really -- first or.
Candidate running but and -- -- war.
And finally in Iraq as you pointed -- on news hour tonight.
The even if we wanted to stay in Iraq longer would remain -- -- our troops would have been vulnerable because they were not given.
I forgot how you put it in legal exemption from.
Culpability for example had they -- any atrocities been committed.
-- -- whenever we capture it in a foreign country we have.
An agreement with -- country -- legal agreement it says.
It is an American Europe the F car accident in Iraq now that American will repeat but -- that you -- breakup but not your luck.
Protection that -- safe and accurate.
Want our prime minister not that it's not about how accurate the idea of putting it and that's an American whatever that number -- there.
You know -- without this protection the unthinkable.
And it was against all of the recommendations.
And so we agreed that we would that relationship.
Through educational courses visiting -- training equipping and all of the things that we're currently doing.
In our strategic relationship -- But if it and that that wasn't not -- that was -- -- a lot you know.
