Counted compared to the bridge get up here fast because this leak is -- get relaxed at the dignity we have -- and -- -- -- state is about to well.
But this is not the Starship Enterprise my friends this is the very -- -- -- -- us.
Louise Goldin the real Kirk is a bigger Kirk a more threatening Kirk or Kirk who still makes our enemies quake.
Because retired navy commander -- LeBeau has a habit of what big smiles -- their faces.
And fast and commander and by the way you've never edited -- like that so you can thank me later.
-- those those are -- alas we're getting from our enemies visited there laughing at us and the demands we were placing on on.
Forcing him to get bleaker back here they ignored us elected us.
Well you know what do you look at it is that a nation has to have capability and credibility on the world stage in order to be -- And right now while we have may have capability.
We certainly don't have any credibility with the way this president and his team are running foreign affairs otherwise she wouldn't have Russia.
China basically thumbed their nose that -- even Ecuador taking a cheap shot.
But really when you look at it in Russia he is in Russian territory right now.
And couldn't a man the president said I can work with him clearly is finding out otherwise.
You know the -- north and what came out of nowhere because I know.
You know they have -- -- there -- holed up in an embassy.
But there -- hardly it's free speech advocates themselves.
And they're going after -- saying that we denied free speech in this country leaving the irony of that decision.
And and that move on the part of the Ecuadorian since -- -- debt.
What does it say about how things are going here.
Well I think -- and -- what it's really coming down to is that our national security is slowly being eroded and chipped away yet.
Because we refuse to draw.
Firm lines with these nations and say we need them back.
We go to Italy India I feel better quit thinking that I would I would we have done it'd it'd be hard minutes.
We made it very clear -- -- this could have irreparable harm and do irreparable harm to our relations going forward.
-- -- I guess today possibility that we can get economically -- -- that maybe there could be trade sanctions.
I don't even now with -- I don't know what.
What lol what leverage we have -- but we don't have a leverage right we don't follow up.
I think we do have leverage -- we're just one willing to exercise it in a way either diplomatically economically to do it.
Clearly there's a number of things that we're doing with European partners over there that the Russians do not like they feel like we're encroaching on their borders.
So there are in fact some very subtle things that we could do.
To pull the tension down and get the Russians to cooperate.
But we don't lack the credibility that we're actually going to follow through and do -- and I think that's why we are discovering that these nations can thumb their nose at us on the public stage.
Great so they can do that the reality of it is at the end of the day will we get Snowden back I doubt we will but I certainly hope we do.
He is a traitor and he -- lovely -- how to breastfeed their commander may do we don't really want him back.
-- -- -- -- I think we do want -- back -- we cannot afford to let this type of behavior go unpunished and unaccountable on the world stage.
Quite frankly regardless of whether the damage is.
Major or whether it is truly significant the jeopardized our national security across the board.
That's something that I think that NSA and still they're digging into -- intelligence community who want the reality is and even with that investigation ongoing.
We cannot afford to allow people like him.
Other contractors or even government workers to think that they can steal this.
Information with impunity because they have a bigger view of the world.
They think that the world through their straw encompasses everything for that we need for our national security.
And can -- this -- it cannot be tolerated and those that do need to be brought back here go before our courts and held accountable and justice be served against.

A hell -- a lot more than we need them.
Right all we have to do stop buying Chinese products and I guarantee you eventually that bicycle turn on them because they needed for their economy and we've just seen in the last few days and how they've had to manipulate their currency system.
In order to get things going again.
Do you make a better commander Kirk Kirk.
