Now we're only days into the president's second term and already the Obama administration faces some tough foreign policy challenges.
There is secretary of state Clinton's grilling -- Ben Ghazi and also today a report that several militants who attacked an Algerian gas complex.
Also took part in the Ben -- attack.
But that's not all there is now growing controversy over the US sending F sixteens to Egypt former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich joins us -- -- Good evening.
Gotta start of these F sixteens to Egypt -- a deal that was struck in 2010 they're just being delivered now why are -- sending F sixteens.
Well we've -- had a very long military relationship with the egyptians but I think with the new president who clearly is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Somebody who has recently is -- two or three years ago said children should be taught to hate Jews.
The Jews are comparable to pigs and apes.
That -- I think that we should be reassessing.
The whole relationship but I.
-- I really am doubtful.
That more CN and they Muslim Brotherhood and senator had to be reliable allies and I am very concerned.
That we seem to have a policy that's on auto pilot so no matter what they do we continue to give them weapons and F sixteens.
Are primarily useful against Israel I don't I don't know of any other country.
That Egypt is going to use those aircraft against.
We talk about a reassessing it seems like that's almost night and being gotten that up for consideration and just to quote further what -- did saying 2010 is -- as he refers to -- -- blood -- -- attacked Palestinians.
As well as describe in his descendants of apes and pigs.
He also in September.
Just a few months after becoming president of Egypt.
Had the -- Sudan -- under indictment from the ICC he invited him to Egypt he should've been arrested.
Amnesty International -- the president Sudan arrested when he left the country and yet he gets a special visit and assists Sudan that is says help being -- that's helping Iran would their weapons program so why are we why we kept our eyeballs still helping Egypt.
Help these other countries.
Well -- drive my view would be -- be totally reevaluated.
And we should be considering cutting off the economic aid which is about a billion and a half dollars a year we should be considering cutting off.
Both the aircraft in the tanks.
Their primary use is going to be against Israel I don't know any other explanation -- what you need them for.
They're not -- -- know you do be effective anywhere else in the region.
And so I I'm very disturbed by that but -- -- a general pattern in your urge Secretary Clinton today say -- doesn't really matter.
What happened that Ben Ghazi what are -- going back and looking at what happened -- only.
Of course it matters.
This administration consistently.
To confront the reality of international terrorism.
Now they're gonna be shocked to discover that the Algerian event.
The country we did not think was gonna have an event.
The Algerian hostage crisis was in fact caused by people who are related to what happened women guys where he was shocked discovered -- at least admitted there's.
That the weapons from Libya and Syria are drifting all over the region so you're now gonna have better armed terrorist in more places.
Nobody six months ago knew -- my -- was now -- all of a sudden is in danger of becoming a terrorist.
Nobody in the administration wants to admit this is spiraling steadily worse and -- getting to be I think.
A bigger and bigger international problem which raises the question how can you know that an embassy is safe.
She talked about looking at high risk embassies I would argue we live in an era where every embassy is a high risk embassy -- the terrorists figure out.
That's the one which is -- believed to be attacked.
Remember that we used to look at Ed presidencies and chairman in terms of how many if they have how many countries -- Communists during the presidency.
Not what we're looking at at least in North Africa and West Africa in the past few months since he answered no I'll wash with terrorism and it and they're called al-Qaeda al-Qaeda related groups and it's spreading -- -- -- -- reference of Molly mean the whole place is just is turning into observer of a fertile.
Ground floor for the creation but -- out terrorism what are we doing what should we be doing.
Well we we need to have.
A very basic rethinking -- and terror strategy and frankly this goes all the way back to the Bush Administration.
Neither the Bush Administration nor the Obama administration.
Has wanted to confront the scale of international terrorism and the scale of the fanaticism which is driving it.
And you can argue that Obama is worse but but the elites in both parties have been trying to find some way to get it down to being a manageable problem.
It's a big problem and frankly.
Nobody in the US is covering the the problems in Pakistan's.
Which are very real Pakistan has probably building more nuclear weapons right now than any other country in the world.
We talk about it.
And Iranian bomb may be in the near future.
Over I think there over a hundred Pakistani nuclear weapons and it's a very fragile country.
I was very very deep problems Afghanistan is decaying us -- not getting better Iraq is decaying amount of violence in Iraq has gone up dramatically.
Syria is a -- Bahrain has a serious problem.
The Yemen is a mass Somalia is a mass start looking -- -- in -- relies.
There's a much more dangerous world out there then President Obama -- inaugural address -- secretary Clinton's testimony today would lead you to believe.
This is becoming just change the topic a little -- curious.
Who is live or -- of the Republican Party right now.
-- I don't think we have a leader right now to be Ryan's -- on Friday when he's reelected.
Chairman and that's the idea is like the Republican the national problem and I'm talking about Sarah who's set in I mean who does Republican Party looked to right now the Republican -- We will not have a single leader until we get a nominee in 2016.
That's just the nature of being the opposition party.
We have a lot of great governors a lot of very effective senators and house members.
I think there are a lot of folks who could emerge as leader.
But nobody's going to be -- to get that job until they win the nomination in 2016.
That's just the nature of politics in America.
And so how -- I.
I have to take a second place and -- -- 12 tell your audience Callista and I had a great opportunity today.
To go visibility grams library which is a remarkable place.
And then milligrams library.
-- last interview he did was with you three years ago and they show it to everybody comes through.
And it opens at him saying how thrilled he is the -- interviewing him and it's truly charming and harassing you deserve some credit.
For being a person who got his attention convince him to do an interview -- that's first will be done in many years and is a very very charming interview I just wanted to.
Report that to -- many viewers.
Well as very nice -- very lucky I'm his son and I've become very good friends Franklin Graham and I've become very good friends and so I was given the opportunity to -- interviews fathers -- -- -- very fortunate.
Always nice to see -- certain.
