We have with this a talking about aside and you have seen of course are.
Our our interview they came on the last night where -- spoke with this considers Fox News contributor and of course great power comes in the room as well -- joining smoke -- -- Robert O'Brien he's a former.
US -- and he is here to talk about.
The whole issue -- -- -- chemical weapons the chemical -- that responded you haven't seen the interview last night.
I did it was impressive that fox ran the whole hour -- -- erupted that something you don't see and that was a it was it was great to put this guy and and show how cold blooded he has in front of the American people on filtered.
On filtered Anderson before we have actually clip on a plane a second a first of all on filter in -- way however.
With the solace so interesting I think and for those people who maybe have not followed him and his history history of the Stanley and in for that matter Syria.
Here's a man who Wear the suit he wears a tie.
He's soft spoken.
At least that's the persona he puts out there and this interview it.
In some respects it is he working.
The media I mean is he trying to get a different image of him out there as not being the madman who -- on people.
He's definitely trying to -- trying to put -- rational face on the brutality of the Syrian war machine.
And this opportunities been afforded to mom why -- the our Russian initiative the Russians have taken the lead on this they're putting -- -- -- as some sort of international negotiating partner.
And he's rehabilitated himself rehabilitating the regime that's a failure of American policy and -- a failure of the west because.
This -- butchered over a 100000 -- on people his dad did the same thing.
These are not nice people whether they Wear a -- or not.
Right when you -- US trip to the UN.
Most perception of aside back back at that point.
-- the Bush Administration which I served tried to isolate aside because keep in mind it was a -- who was helping.
Forces in Iraq that -- kill an American soldiers.
He was Iran and is a -- number one ally in the region.
And these are very -- is a very brutal dictator.
There was a different perception in the Obama administration you'll remember secretary Kerry had dinner with the -- famously five times Secretary Clinton called -- -- reformer.
Pres Obama sent our ambassador back they thought they could do business with them.
That turned out not to be the case and and yet hairy he's still there so he's.
-- he's taken advantage of every opportunity candidate to remain a an international player -- this thing control on Syria.
Yeah let's take a listen do part of the interview last night in -- for an hour on Fox News here's a here's a clip from.
Aside speaking to Fox -- great -- -- -- in my colleague our colleague was in the room take a listen to this.
We know that President Obama and secretary Kerry have said in the past that you -- now that's their words not mine.
When you said that you didn't have any chemical weapons a few days ago in an interview with Russia challenge when he four.
You admitted -- chemical weapons stockpiles.
Now I just can't make sure we're clear before we go forward.
Do you or do -- not -- chemical weapons.
First of portability what Obama and Kennedy stated idea of empathy that would -- -- know once we -- that the mean you know stagnant and the -- we -- -- now we never -- no we never fit yes.
Can do anything yet but we -- -- if -- if -- the fight -- who we don't have to discuss -- and -- want to -- quote that we think if and it means you can you may have it.
You've been up so that's his.
They can and none of David can you tell us now do you have chemical weapons that don't you both -- -- -- -- When we joined.
Treaty last week it means that we haven't fit within that there's hope to think -- anymore.
Was again a side doing his best there too.
Do his best impersonation of -- US politician no no chances -- answer that question is very simple.
Do you have a Marty you're not and we all know he has them and that's been documented.
And he's still wouldn't even you know the he still would even admit that he had -- weapons or are officially deny he had the weapons and the -- classified issues baloney.
But you heard his voice you heard -- know how he comes across.
Western so to speak wearing a suit and tie in a reason -- that's not normally.
Tire you would see on an everyday basis.
When you heard that right there what would you thing.
Well the first thing I I thought about is that.
Where's the referral from the Security Council we can talk about this with respect to the Russians.
Here's a guy who's got chemical weapons illegally whose use chemical weapons on his own people.
And he's been caught red handed.
And yet he's trying to play the role of this international statesman submitting -- the chemical weapons.
Convention I if.
It's -- part of -- is so preposterous that because he's soft spoken and speak English speaks English and and wears a coat and tie.
That he is somebody that we can do do business with.
We we've ignored the entire record in his father's regime his regime and and the tens of thousands of people who they've collectively killed by may it.
It's just preposterous.
If prospers I know I know there's some issues.
With the most recent attack there.
Anderson you'll say that we don't have we know the exact evidence showing that the regime did it is visible saying it that it.
The some of the rebels -- there's at least eighteen major rebel groups in Syria.
I've also been found with some traces of some of these weapons was it hard to believe when -- do you -- -- They had a number of stock -- all over that that country.
But you mentioned Russia and China of course and Iran also involved in all -- -- they're not cracking down through the UN.
So this interview in some respects he's kind of given an indication the American people what we're dealing with and we had a guy won't admit that he saw the cookies in the cookie jar when his hand was -- inside.
Well -- and that ties together with what the Russians are doing because they took the diplomatic initiative here couldn't.
Pushed himself back on the world stage.
Took control with Syria that the Syrian crisis away from the administration away from Carrie and and present Obama and and -- power the UN.
He is now taking control it's going to be stall delay.
Protect decide their ally Iran is now -- and buy him more time and and meanwhile the people and Syria that were subjected to these gas attacks.
Can have no assurance that there won't be another gas attack.
Or they are that there won't be further attacks using conventional weapons on on women and children and civilians it's a very difficult situation.
And we've made it more difficult through really inept diplomacy which is a -- Right Robert C O'Brien former US servers and into the U editor George Bush appreciate you joining us from Los Angeles and I'm sure we'll have you back talking more about the situation with aside as this continues to unfold.
Thanks for if you if you.
