I would say even you would admit it was not the optimal response at least to the American people as far as us all being on the same page -- -- you here's what I'll say yeah.
If -- Americans get killed it's not a right and we're gonna fix.
But I'm joined right now by -- excesses army veterans you know in the CEO of -- veterans for America and with humans and with dusty Russell the founder of that's for America.
Who helped hunt -- capture -- Saddam Hussein.
Both served in the military.
PD would take that.
Not not optical not acceptable I mean it that that's what it should be I know.
Jon Stewart used the words first but for him to repeat that and and and sort of insinuate that -- this is the preferable situation -- but we can manage it.
Are our representative in Libya is dead and those who can who who perpetrated it as you know -- have not been held responsible that's unacceptable that's not the America we know and and now we can't tolerate.
Now we know too that the guy who's most and who's accused of being involved in this at the hotel this Abu could top.
Was sipping -- you settle -- your hotel yesterday saying that they the Libyan national army is a bunch of chickens.
And he probably says he's commanded -- militia that's accuser perpetrated this Steve.
How important is sending a message to that guy mango -- the days of simply negligence by the poor over.
We can't sit around and apologize for films.
Not since 1979.
Have we lost an ambassador hearkens back to -- to Carter's days.
The man that -- disorders the man to not understand this part of the world is very dangerous and were wrong very very dangerous ground in this situation.
You might not have seen the whole testimony repeat as he's been a bunch of times but that would send the State Department made it clear that they were able to watch this attack in almost real time does -- emergency system kicked in him and these -- this these guys were pleading for.
Help will help get what we have for hours and hours and hours and -- knew it was clear early on that this is a coordinated attempt.
Which which means we got to keep finding out and asking more and more questions about -- five days later Susan Rice is talking about protests and Internet videos on the anniversary of 9/11.
That there's a cover up going on here there's more information -- play more its gonna come out and the worst part about something like this is always the cover up.
Not so we you know if they really -- column for help and people knew about it in real time there's.
There's someone's got to pay for that hacker -- -- it's foolish to even think on 9/11 that we would allow an ambassador in a country that's come apart it seems to be unsecure it's irresponsible -- to attacks in the spring over a hundred different incidents in the country over the past year.
This has to -- who -- who are looking at.
And we have troops in Italy that could have been scrambled to get there my right.
And if it takes it out if you -- eat our coordinated attack with a handful of people fighting -- in -- in a coordinated assault.
-- -- you have the default action has to be to action toward calling any assets you've got to support that American ambassador.
And you have a private firm that was hired for 750 million dollars from Wales that no one knows anything about.
That's when he came out of our miscellaneous budget for those who say we have the budget to protect him that's flat out wrong we have the wrong guys -- Flesch -- -- but bonds.
All right now let's move on to one of the things you hear today to talk about your kicking off -- we can do better tour more than just to military.
Absolutely more than just the military we think right now today with America's veterans and our country -- -- we can do better than me are.
And then we currently are our national debt sixteen trillion it has national security implications.
Admiral Mullen said -- it's the single largest it security threat that we face is the fact that we owe that money and at some point we'll have to pay it back but anything about it Ronald Reagan was the guy who built up our economy before it to be able to build up our military to send the Soviets a message yet.
Absolutely and but it's not just that it's our veterans claims backlog which is doubled since 2008 its military voting which -- gotten worse since 2008.
It's veterans' unemployment that still much higher than the population that we can do better in this country for veterans and the things we caravans go to C world.
-- -- we must do better -- America's veterans cannot come home from a decade of war deceive the nations slip into the hands of the vision lists that submissive in the self indulgent.
It's time that we rely.
On not only the American people but also veterans to help solve America's problems we need to get back to the things that we know we can do.
You know you -- used to solving problems getting missions in just getting it done -- just -- fall back.
Are you surprised that of all the segments of our society is having trouble linking up with the job it's the military what's going on there.
Well -- it the best of the places where we see that.
The solutions are when companies reach out and say we want to hire.
Veterans such a place like Home Depot that's -- -- initiative to reach out and say we talked yesterday yeah they've got a set of skills we we know they'll add value to what we do the next generation of march viewers the next generation of leaders a politician.
These -- these guys coming back we just need to make sure they've given every opportunity to make apple if a veteran can be there if while they're in uniform they console some of the nation's toughest tests that they -- When they come home if a company asked well what can you do it's like what you want us you.
Given the opportunity of those skills now -- you guys also do is got -- This is the tour bus that you guys gonna be on I assume -- -- the top -- yeah I think your.
