Another commission are let me switch gears here and talk about us.
Because the president of Iran had some interesting things to say today about our president's.
Yesterday Obama made.
-- release the new nuclear posture review and I spent eight years at Columbia University -- -- Ph.D.
on America's Cold War nuclear targeting and post Cold War nuclear targeting.
I know this subject more -- that I more than I want you.
What Obama did yesterday.
To me apart from announcing he was gonna try to bring Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to New York to -- -- trial.
This is the single most irresponsible thing that this commander in chief has done.
For the first time the American president has telegraph to our enemies when we will and will not use nuclear weapons he is said point blank yesterday.
Nonnuclear states even if they attacked the United States with biological or chemical weapons we will not retaliate with nuclear specifically excited biological in that speech he said it biological weapons get worse.
Then he -- would -- I was just this nuclear posture review was so full of holes and loopholes and end -- -- would be an all kinds of jazz.
Swiss cheese could could -- -- in comparison to how many holes were in this.
He did kind of got an exception for Iran and North Korea.
So I got consumables on the panel.
The exception for Iran and North Korea aren't you -- North Korea nukes Iran is on the verge of having news.
Bush called -- the axis of evil isn't that exactly what Obama is giving props to you by carving out a nuclear section where Iran.
I north clients an exception might -- and I wasn't.
My I didn't get on the North Korea are definitely was my question about it I get those words out of your mouth that I don't like called on the access of evil even -- -- -- -- evil I entitled to stop humble.
This is -- day that Livan.
Both the terrible dictatorships that mystery that early in there aren't going to -- -- North Korea got nuclear weapons under bush and it was a huge mistake of George Bush to a North Korea to go nuclear and I think would be huge mistake of Obama.
To monitor on my where I don't know you can go all the way back to that Bill Clinton know this war agreed framework within the framework we prevented North Korea from getting nuclear weapons program hundreds of actors.
Under bush turned his attention away and they got them and we don't agree with you Monica.
That they'd be running -- nuclear weapons it will be as big a travesty as bush allowing North Korea didn't let -- tonight label bottled or anything like that -- -- I mean I don't want to get -- general -- the deadly weapons in your hands and I think he might be my.
Harsher on them I don't do that so today Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the president of Iran ridiculed the American president and called him.
Let me get this straight I wanna get this he said -- Obama navy's latest remarks because he -- inexperienced and an amateur politician.
-- -- -- sweat you have it president definitely yeah.
I don't -- does Obama wait until your -- drives and get some experience.
Be careful not to just read any paper put -- front -- you or repeat any statement recommended.
And then he said nothing is gonna stop Iran's march to nuclear weapon Liz your reactions -- Ahmadinejad mocking the president well.
Mister -- -- it does not go back a long way to tell you if you really good.
But yeah okay in the city and the headline of the hour thank god.
-- -- -- -- -- Well you know he was one of the revolutionary guard that took our hostages.
The back -- 197982.
-- have that right spending and unite the and I spent.
Month more than a month actually in Iran during that time.
Covering it for CBS.
And not only did I it.
And you may know you they have -- afterwards.
At least half a dozen of the hostages said.
That they recognize.
But did it -- from his photos -- interestingly enough the Bush Administration the State Department would not confirm that.
Which I think was a devastating and wrong thing to do.
You know what's so funny because one of those things are that they they -- have lots and lots of weapons all the -- they never had any ammunition.
They -- a lot of weapons of this was told -- very very good source.
And I keep thinking -- that one incident when I listened we didn't -- because I'm not convinced.
They'll ever the last rocket landed in the -- somewhere right I'm not convinced.
That there of that kind of threat.
But that's what I've met when I said honestly I think yeah.
Listen I don't.
-- -- -- But I gotta say that this is so -- president.
And that's like Ahmadinejad who can smell weakness like an animal.
And go in for the kill this is what they're doing they're gonna play with him.
Every one of our enemies is gonna play with but it is gonna play with Obama because they know that he's already you know Burris -- any can't afford any other kind of defense.
The week president does not Ahmadinejad the guy's not the most -- a person Iran he's a politician his job is to be provocative and that's all he can do.
And the point is you know I'm glad that we so we're not gonna use a nuclear -- that if any kind of musical -- that is the end of the world is no day after the no limited nuclear awards are ridiculous expression.
And what I like if it that the very most of your biggest threat to American the world is nuclear material and secure adequate you're getting in the hands of terrorists he's having this summit next week almost fifty nations unprecedented.
Environmental sit here.
A -- lot of important.
I don't know about that that's -- -- what got me sitting next week environmentalists don't talk about they certainly did.
This LA yes I'm talking about making sure it when the civil union fell apart the -- they're doing it spreads very important.
-- he's not a -- president he's a smart president is strong president.
And you know we need to do is have everybody sign onto the nuclear non belligerent and her -- proliferation to it's hard to say that's what -- -- and other.
India Pakistan Israel are -- and it and we need them to be there but here.
Commander in chief one outline the -- -- You never tell your enemies which you are prepared to do and you never think you should never telegraphed your enemies which you are not prepared to do.
When Obama has just -- -- with Reagan and George W.
Bush and Richard Nixon our enemies didn't quite know where they stand with them.
It's the crazy cowboy from California -- crazy cowboy from Texas had a network -- eight.
Richard Nixon is he nuts enough to give me -- -- criticism of the plan that could -- -- -- you want your enemies to be off balance you want them constantly guessing about what the American president that didn't work well President Bush now you've got the skinny professor in the White House is getting some -- that I -- episode.
I don't worry about -- we're not gonna knew that you don't -- he said it here where you're getting nuclear weapons we're not gonna new Q.
If you get nuclear weapons Obama made it clear that we can -- -- if you -- anything -- an incentive not to get nuclear -- hours if you look at the nuclear powers like Russia is not gonna -- China's not -- new best Pakistan if they're -- run by al-Qaeda that they might make you guys only Israel India.
He's of the nuclear -- -- -- they're not you know yet the threat got a yeah I agree that yeah its promised North Korea -- That's the threat but let me play I don't factor is of the threat to a -- but but he certainly was not a threat is real talk openly about bombing there don't you know.
-- for the Phillies -- very different yeah.
You're talking about defense okay but that act like they feel they need whether it actually run saw that Iraq didn't have had the weapons they were attacked North Korea has been wasn't attacked.
It's raw I don't wanna see you Iran and get it but there's a reason why they wanted and they feel like we're not gonna attack them darling -- I did.
