-- -- a presidential candidates hitting all the issues including Iraq Afghanistan.
And of course the most talked about issue right now the attack on our consulate in Libya.
Now -- respect to Libya as I indicated in the last debate.
When we receive that phone call.
I immediately make sure that number one we did everything we could to secure those.
Americans were still in harm's way number two that we would investigate exactly what happened a number three most importantly that we would go after those.
Who killed Americans and we would bring them to justice and that's exactly what we're gonna do what.
We're gonna have to put in place a very comprehensive and robust strategy.
To help that the the world of Islam and and other parts of the world reject this radical violent extremism which is it certainly -- on the run.
It certainly not.
Heidi that this is a group that is now involved in ten -- are twelve countries.
And it presents an enormous threat to our friends to the world.
To America long term and we must have a comprehensive strategy to help project this kind of extremism.
-- -- you keep on trying to.
Help airbrushed history -- you were very clear.
That you would not provide.
To the US auto companies.
Even if they went through bankruptcy you said that they could get it in the private marketplace that wasn't true.
They would have gone through -- -- -- -- I I don't know why I'm not a wrong I am not gonna look at and right people will look at up.
We're talking about the Middle East and how to help the Middle East reject the kind of terrorism we're -- and the rising tide of Tom Moulton and confusion.
And an attacking me is not agenda.
Attacking me is not talking about how we're gonna deal with the challenges that exist in the Middle East and take advantage of the opportunity there and stem the tide of this violence.
So we've been through tough times but we always bounce back because of our -- because we pull together.
And if I have the privilege of being your president for another four years I promise you I won't always listen your voices I will fight for your families.
And I won't work every single day to make sure that America continues to be the greatest nation on -- America's gonna come back and for that to happen we're gonna have to have a president who can work across the -- I was in a state where my legislature was 87% Democrat.
I learned how to get along on the other side of the -- we've got to do that it washed and Washington is broken I know what it takes to get this country back and we'll work with good Democrats and good Republicans to do that.
Well there were several moments in the debates where President Obama and governor Romney did not agree on the facts so good thing we have Fox's Chris Wallace he is fact checking the candidates.
On three issues brought up last night let's take a listen.
The first -- on which they disagreed had to do with this question as to whether or not the president -- Mitt Romney wanted to keep troops in Iraq.
After they were -- them vast majority were pulled out let's play the Clinton.
You and I agreed I believe that there should have been a status of forces agreement.
Did you group or you didn't even want -- status of twelve what I what I would not.
-- have done is left 101000 troops in Iraq that would tie us down and that's certainly would not help us.
In the Middle East I'm sorry you actually there was a there was an effort on the part of the president to have a status of forces in -- -- Well in fact I think you have to give the points to -- Romney on that and provided as part of the troop withdrawal by George W.
Bush and and a deal with the Iraqi prime minister is that there would be a status of forces agreement and that there would be.
A residual force there was talk of that is as little as 5000 the military.
-- a closer to 20000 the person put in charge -- that was Joseph Biden the vice president.
And at one point he is and I'll -- you might vice presidency Maliki the Iraqi prime minister will extend this -- status of forces agreement.
But it all fell apart they never got it but it's clear out Romney was right Obama was wrong.
Obama want head and -- to -- status of forces agreement the other thing and we talked about this before this very cutting moment when.
Obama -- brother Romney was talking about how Obama was -- got the military.
And Obama said -- you don't understand what the military is today let's play dot.
I think governor Romney -- hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military works you -- you mentioned the may be for example and we have.
Fewer ships than we did in 1960.
Well governor we also have fewer horses and -- and that's.
Because the nature of our -- -- we have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on the we have.
These ships they go underwater nuclear submarines.
Well as it turns out in the middle of the debate after he heard this submarine pleaded Fox News and said.
The Marines still -- is back and that so it may be not be clear -- doesn't understand what the military currently uses finally very briefly on the auto bailout.
