KT McFarland -- -- -- security posts in the Nixon Ford and Reagan administration she joins -- good evening Kasey Barbara.
I'm -- thought the -- watching the debate tonight -- each had different jobs to do.
And I think that one guy did it and the other guy didn't -- jabbing at three things he had a daily had to show that he knew enough about foreign policy to be the president.
He had to dispel any notion that he was a war -- is gonna take -- toward Middle East and then if there is that commander in chief test yeah the look and sound presidential I did all free.
Now what about -- I have to do he had one thing to do and that was to break the momentum.
And he didn't sell as a result doesn't really matter what they -- on the specifics of foreign policy I think it's a draw.
Which means Romney won now now one thing that I listen to -- Is what might change that momentum what might change things has been left to do no more debates are back there be any more statistics are events that occur.
Romney is Elvira is a commander chief and when he said we're going to bring those who did that to justice.
He's got one more I have to go one more rabbit upon a hat he -- have a strike against me.
Al-Qaeda cells and eastern Libya right before the election.
You know either couple things we know we run out time in these big news said but debates that -- -- is really not not enough time.
If there are some issues that I regretted weren't there for instance there was I don't -- -- hearing anything on the and they EEO and whatever happens with the EU's economic situation.
It could have profound impact on us back home which is a national security issue because we're off in his global economy were so dependent upon each other so I actually act and act she would hope that there are going to talk about how much we want to get involved.
In in that -- that -- -- -- I'm curious is there any sort of issues that you would serve -- regretted glad we didn't have time for to.
Well I -- that -- governor Romney got a little bit more into the Libya thing and not just what happened in the timeline -- why did he do a rescue mission why didn't.
After the fact why didn't President Obama don't punish the guys.
Who did or at least take out al-Qaeda training camps and the other thing is there was -- discussion about the reset with Russia.
I would I was surprised so little bit that they didn't get into more details about where is Russia going where -- Russia and the greater scheme in the Middle East.
But other than -- I think it was a pretty good debate.
But substantively I think they covered most of the major issues.
But the what they think they were talking about much or governor -- tried to do which is Latin America and that is going to be a big issue going for -- -- our relationship.
Do we have -- -- trade relationship that we can enhance.
And it does Latin America remain a friend as it has been for 200 years.
-- this just a parts of Africa that we didn't have time for -- one of the topics that has actually consume me would you Sudan and south Sudan Sudan has sensitive and fighting over oil so there's some international attention on a but you've got other problems where the president of Sudan president Bashir who is wanted for war crimes.
He recently traveled to Egypt where he left his own country should have been arrested on the excitement out of the ICC.
Instead because he's Muslim Brotherhood as is a new president Egypt Muslim Brotherhood he got a state visit he should have been arrested.
And so we've got this -- -- -- situation where where president dead this year was say here he gave home first to us.
To Osama bin lots of those -- there -- a lot of parts of the world that are really.
Dangerous parts of the world and we didn't get to those either right.
But I like Katie thank you very much thanks -- and up next.
