-- -- -- segment tonight what to do about Iran looks like Israel will not take any military action until after the presidential election but it's clear the Israelis and not gonna allow Ron.
To develop a nuclear weapon and will use military force against Iranians have necessary.
Meantime sanctions against Iran are hurting that country deeply as its currency is falling apart.
Actor Ben Affleck has -- -- a new film about Iran and I spoke with him yesterday.
So you make a movie about a time in history that a lot of people forget 1979.
Iran has American hostages in the right it's really heard the Carter administration is one of the reasons you lost to Ronald Reagan.
Why are you a guy wasn't even conscious at that time what do you wanna make a movie like this you know it was just a great story -- -- for one thing.
It's a thriller it's actually a comedy with the Hollywood satire it's a complicated CIA movie it's a political movie.
That's all true -- I'll see you why you wanted to make any entertainment though about a serious subject.
Rescuing Americans from.
A dictatorship Iraq I did -- and that the serious aspect of it was that this is really a tribute to the folks on our clandestine services.
And -- diplomats in the foreign service who are risking their lives over there tragic we've seen.
Examples of that very recently and and folks who are the what they give up to serve us and the sort of and it's the same people who Warner boarded the same people who rendition.
But that's -- -- liberal friends gonna say any -- I don't -- so much about what my liberal friends are gonna say you know to me I'm in a movie that night.
My friends are Democrats -- my -- Republicans can both watch artist not a politically -- created in a -- mine used to look -- glorifying some people who may be did bad things in the name of the country to protect I've been to the CIA I met General David Petraeus these are extraordinary.
Honorable people at the -- I make no mistake about it until the year are now.
Influence a presidential election because of the -- thing.
Well I'm worried about in the sense that woman is obviously trouble spot this is the same regime that is in my movie.
In 1979 with -- now -- dominates the same things -- based Islamist regime right now we're still dealing with them and if they got a bomb I think everybody thinks that would be trouble I'm just an amateur continent but.
My feeling about it is you know one.
When -- also be judicious frankly I don't think there's a lot of the what do you -- -- -- -- -- mean I mean look.
Here is a choice you strangle him with the sanctions which seems to be we're doing right now and all right history -- collapsing near -- currency there in bad trouble or a give Netanyahu the OK to go win if he reaches a certain point.
-- -- My understanding is that Netanyahu is not for Israel -- not entirely capable whacking them to be ecstatic if they need to be whacked.
And I wouldn't outsource US foreign policy to any other government.
I would do I would be judicious in the sense that the high percentage Americans don't wanna see another war and one I think ought to be quite careful before and engaged in war however.
We have to have a line we're beyond which we say this is not acceptable on Iran's all right so we've got -- line more crossed by Iran and they were very close you wouldn't oppose military action to stop their nuclear.
Program I wouldn't oppose military action but it it the question is where the -- -- -- and I would always in my way public I wouldn't be back sense of allies are right now.
You're Democrat big Obama -- this time around like tomorrow on the major issues I think Obama's not a good job I'm gonna vote farm if you had to point to one thing.
About -- Obama that he's accomplished.
That has impressed you will would.
Well -- main accomplishment is one -- tricky because he's advocated he's tried to do a number of things we've been stymied his major policy goal a changing the tax structure so the wealthy pay their fair share to me is it is -- mean.
But -- importance do you believe it and covering -- distribution do you believe -- -- or anything -- tax or doesn't as the streaking down a little maybe I don't know that I -- -- -- -- socialism that that's not talking no -- -- that the tax -- -- little bit but there is a philosophy along liberal Americans -- -- and higher fat -- -- 1% and he did all right so you know all the -- is what we'll have to look at -- they can pony up 4045%.
Of -- -- -- A -- spread around -- is -- return of the freed bush tax that -- but yes I'd be reunited.
I don't know you know what you're what you're not looks like but I I don't spend so much that I can't afford to pay a little bit more and taxes and I think that's important I think the stimulus was a good thing by and large I think it was absolutely necessary I think -- saved us from getting.
Deeper into recession but I'm not here you -- Obama talking points.
I was aware intercity and you and what you think last question if the president loses to Mitt Romney because your Massachusetts guy he's governor of the -- -- ended.
I don't around him -- and very pleasant guy rest so you're not gonna move out of the country of the I'm here I'm okay how about at the the bureaucrats at the leave the country.
I don't I don't think there's I think.
