-- President Obama has already Roger the United Nations to -- -- foreign counterparts at the General Assembly any moment meantime.
An explosive new book -- -- Bob Woodward suggests that the president he said he Mets -- vestiges of the world on the war on terror.
So you're world leader who deals -- terrorism in your own backyard.
What do you make of this -- out with -- -- now another president president of Georgia McConnell the sockets is it Mr.
President good to have you.
Good to have good to be on your show back its old Muslim feels like home here it's very good that is our armed.
There are some concerns that the president has sent mixed messages on terror do you think he's.
He's serious and consistent.
Well you know we are.
In Afghanistan we have we have the highest per capita contributed to this that this operation in Afghanistan we have both soldiers in south bill Dennis and he held Monday -- combat troops.
-- no caveats.
Like some other -- -- standard that no talk of pulling out yet and actually we've taken some casualties but I think it's very important that.
Our people and especially what really is trailing -- -- you know all.
For me it's we'll it's it's also very very very you know in some ways -- have a policy experience that you independence of the people who got wounded or killed.
They've taken such a dignified manner that whole thing in the you know.
It bought it should be taken building and it should I mean we cannot leave Afghanistan we don't sold in this because in the end we dole even though.
You know and you've dealt with a Russian going to be -- they had.
-- and Afghanistan also of the country's he was regarded as the US is experiencing the same thing.
Look -- you cannot compare notes to Russia was -- for -- their own costs.
There where there for the same reasons why they're now right now in Mike Pence in -- by 20% of its -- they wanted to subject it offense that what I think.
We are doing -- all of us and dispersion of primarily US but all the other kinds of leaving the cost.
We believe that the country can stabilize that dictates future for that people that -- future for.
Some kind of local version of democracy and functioning government and and basically for safer world and that's basically.
And I think you that is the way we should -- up on that struggle and.
Well I'm not not to believe this book itself Mr.
President you could be right.
But obviously the administration the president wanted to point to warned early on and on what to do about Afghanistan concerns about being in a long time.
The trillion dollar cost.
A lot of lives lost questioning whether on it was worth it and his.
That's the gist of what's causing on -- up here.
Well I I.
Idol I like Bob Woodward that's that's amazing tournaments I haven't read this book so -- it's not militant position to comment on it.
I believe that it goes Americas which when we have serving there.
That commanders are very serious -- -- very committed you know they're taking casualties but you know I've -- those American military they're amazing people.
-- they have certain.
You know special order honorable way off.
Holding them so special intellectually I don't get General Petraeus personally and you know has been very complimentary -- -- Jordan soldiers and there's some American generals have seen this and you know -- -- -- have something that you cannot be described in words to this very special that's true because we've been fighting for freedom.
For own independence and we understand is that for the same values for four centuries now and I believe that the ultimately.
American people and the whole mission will -- and I don't -- did way back from that.
You mentioned Mr.
President -- earlier of course you have had your run ins with the Vladimir -- And and there was an argument some time ago that he was actually trying to kill you Obama -- when there was an uprising.
And you know it I know it's -- -- time.
But you still talk about the most of occupier.
What you think of pollutants you think he.
He is running the show -- do you think you back in full power there one well.
But first full I've noted that took a vote them as -- pars but basically the American official position is that collections and illegally occupied part of Jordan this official position of -- -- you foreign governments.
All the responsible people what they'll -- -- when you come into whether it comes to take part piece over the territory expelled basically 8% of the companies would have -- on the -- -- refugees.
People probable -- for but the if you compare.
Population wise this is happening new world this is happening in a very -- that this is coming down from prudent.
Well obviously none of Tony's done in coming don't think -- he's very proud of it.
And you know and this year he's caught he should addition of these surprise for -- a person that basically ruthlessly.
-- -- his own citizens remember this is the country where they're most talented businessmen.
For the cost him felt for the of course is still in prison and he basically no getting doubled that Joe -- He served -- -- term glut in Siberia.
So it expired so they had to let single and no they brought him back basically -- judge trying to second time -- -- terrible affordable place killed four to say what it does.
-- Russia that has been.
Financing and -- nuclear ambitions peaceful nuclear ambitions -- one -- well what should the world do about what.
What I've been.
-- -- of Russian policy has been.
To keep cold and -- problem.
-- in order to have to lesson that's so you know if you run -- sold -- the whole issue goes away.
Then what's the leverage -- Russians -- the United States so they've been plagued his previous mark in a promising -- -- to a westerner but also.
You know delivering -- Iranians and I think.
And in the process -- -- -- -- called permissible -- but you know they've been doing this forever this is not -- and this certainly was running them -- of course this is put in writing but this whole system -- we know that.
Doesn't respect -- -- property rights.
You know rumored for borders in neighborly relations -- and the basic beliefs of humanity and I think.
This go to Israel acted alone mr.
And decided vote no one else is gonna acts against Iran.
Will act unilaterally.
They've been cool that's true that the news -- the US is what I believe the best solution for everybody's to solve it peaceful.
And by the whole -- their basic principles and -- basic principles are that certainly.
All this these offense right persecute them -- -- and nobody can question that's.
I mean it's crystal clear for me every country has to live to -- in peace and number of people including you throw.
Of course this BD showed there we Palestinians and that's why the subject of negotiation and you know the language of -- -- should be.
You know if it doesn't give benefit and obviously we have we have so close to -- We yes we have such a stake in it's spacious more conscious because when.
He thinks erupt people start to forget -- -- with -- -- is also met -- we are also basic did you meet for a country.
We -- badly so.
I think that's exactly the point where you know did there should be to -- should be given chance and I hope it it was usual wounded U -- have the results.
On financial matters Mr.
President what's coming out of the UN today including.
The president's address to for the -- assembling.
Is this idea of a sort of the world's.
Tax that would help poorer countries.
With banks about rich nations -- combination.
-- -- -- Well it.
We I'm coming from country which is sort of a failed state.
And I remember we had covert programs.
And so much money was -- move my predecessors government and it was all black hole you know they give money for housing they build -- us for themselves they give money Soros and hospitals.
And they had new and bank accounts and the unknown new stuff and that you know they begged him money for education and send their kids to get that you could I came to America and America's course but they send their kids on their own money knowing that leave -- it.
In residency by in the outskirts in Astoria and believed in nice apartments here -- and -- -- points.
Dad died -- it's that this is the future president -- and books and I loved it though it's very dramatic plays Regina.
I mean in downtown wherever you just mentioned of course Columbus -- -- by the almost New Yorker and -- every time -- come back I feel like New Yorker but.
Anyway so what I'm saying is that.
You know you need to really local leadership.
Knowing to mention is that I've resources are needed that's clear.
But unless there's a clear evidence that you know people who apple cool -- citizens -- given to.
-- it's been an old Georgia we had.
We had to -- the entire police force but you don't -- I became president before that 98% of our population said in the polls.
They first sending -- of corruption knows there's a half percent.
We used to be and had like Condit for its own place -- -- -- -- business and we had no top placing these and it's through the way of saying that.
-- -- -- -- -- Support for reformers -- -- didn't believe -- if you don't ability gotcha and that's what Binyamin -- after all -- -- -- work if you're advocates understood.
Then -- works Mr.
