-- in the meantime some critics are raising questions about.
With the lack of cooperation on Snowden says about American influence abroad.
We have extradition treaties we have relationships we should -- relationships and if we're not able to convince our allies or for other countries.
Help us with this if it does is being very well to to how we're viewed being viewed in the world -- has been very -- -- -- credibility.
And if we try to leverage our credibility and we are not successful that does not help our -- whatsoever.
In the meantime serious concerns linger about what intelligence snowed in still -- -- those two.
Might -- -- escape -- T McFarland of the heart -- national security analyst joins us live from DC said -- just posted appeasement foxnews.com just went up a few minutes ago.
And you say that this is the turning point in the president's.
In any presidency there's a point which you look back at and you say you know after that point.
-- but nothing ever was the same again sometimes it's when a president then goes on to greatness.
But in the case it's Jimmy Carter for example if the point at which you say you know nothing was ever the same again I think Obama's there are now.
With this known about why.
Because -- -- from here on -- Obama's not gonna get a break he's been shown by the Chinese last weekend by the Russians this week.
That he may request something his administration may ask for something.
But those two countries are two greatest competitors have no problem with doing the equivalent of a diplomatic slap in the face which is what.
This is and went from Russians say the -- -- show that the Russian foreign minister you know the paperwork wasn't spelled out he has an and a transit zone -- the Chinese last week saying.
Well you know you didn't -- in the right -- those excuses there right up there with the dog ate my homework.
This is this clearly -- the Chinese and the Russians are sending to the United States should complete all you want okay are so what's the counterpunch.
-- your parents should be that the United States comes back instead of just looking helpless and all this which is how for example Jimmy Carter look.
After the US diplomats were taken hostage in Tehran.
In the late 1970s United States has some real things it can do to put pressure on the Russians -- just been on.
Unwilling to use those levers we have for example the Russians -- direct foreign investment.
To help their company they need American technology to develop -- -- -- in the eastern Siberia.
Those are things we can withhold from them we can also say -- then you know that missile shield.
And Poland and the Czech Republic that we canceled as a goodwill gesture a couple of years ago the one that you didn't reciprocate will rethink that we may actually.
That missile shield back and that part of the world.
And so I think that -- that all of the efforts Jana that this administration has made to quote reset relations with the Russians.
Have been a failure so not only yeah.
And we we see his comments coming from prudent and -- keeping and I -- looking down and seeing if anything new on and apparently the Russian president is speaking about this during a news conference.
On a visit to Finland so we can follow that the bouncing ball on that -- that's what the Russian president is doing today.
Our president is making a speech about global warming and climate change today.
And a point was raised on our show yesterday that I like your thoughts on TT that perhaps there's a lot happening in the background yes the president has cut hasn't come out like the Russian president.
And talked about this but perhaps there's a lot going on in the background and there's a reason not to be so public about it with your experience in government what do you think about that.
Now I don't think that's I have -- all because otherwise put in a foreign minister Russian firm answer wouldn't come out the statements they've just made the Chinese last week.
Wouldn't come out with the statements they've made.
You know -- the question goes to these countries are a couple of things happening and why he's got a price of admission what's she doing he's probably turning over highly classified information.
I think that's why a week ago you saw on the Chinese media accusations.
That the United States was hacking.
The Chinese I was in shine a month ago Jana.
And I talk to the vice foreign minister is another major issue between us is hacking cyber hacking cyber theft cyber espionage you're doing that to us bristled.
Any say you know -- now America's doing that to the Chinese.
Well I tell -- visit there was no proof of that.
So -- -- giving them information that they want and are resolved I think they're feeling very emboldened.
The big you don't slack the United States around whoever they -- is -- at the lead here but quick thought there's a lot of time being spent talking about our enemies.
But where are friends.
Where are allies.
Who else is speaking out on our behalf.
Nobody is why because they think the Russians and the Chinese can just do that intimidate and humiliate us they're gonna stay quiet on the sidelines how does this turn out.
Because if Russia and China do this now who's gonna do this next Russia's.
Ally may be why does this next -- as well and then eventually you have countries like Cuba and Ecuador.
They think it's open season on the United States they've got the president's number and they're willing to exploit it went to make of the silence of our friends.
As a topic we should talk a lot more about K yeah he -- well thank you so much for your time today to urge our viewers to check Aaron -- and foxnews.com thank you.
