BOLTON Well I thought ░░░░░░░░ a stunningly abstract and ░░░░░░░░ speech really touching on ░░░░░░░░ only occasionally and nowhere ░░░░░░░░ that better demonstrated than ░░░░░░░░ the president s lengthy ░░░░░░░░ of Islamic extremism And ░░░░░░░░ think that was the ░░░░░░░░ news coming out of ░░░░░░░░ This is the longest ░░░░░░░░ the president has ever ░░░░░░░░ to the sources of ░░░░░░░░ and I think there ░░░░░░░░ a lot of very ░░░░░░░░ analysis about the causes ░░░░░░░░ it he did lay ░░░░░░░░ out very clearly But ░░░░░░░░ was stunning was that ░░░░░░░░ laid out the problem ░░░░░░░░ recommendation was that the ░░░░░░░░ to Islamic extremism was ░░░░░░░░ and understanding and generational ░░░░░░░░ We have heard from ░░░░░░░░ president so many times ░░░░░░░░ who is on the ░░░░░░░░ or the wrong side ░░░░░░░░ history The discussion of ░░░░░░░░ threat of ISIS which ░░░░░░░░ been thought to be ░░░░░░░░ centerpiece of this speech ░░░░░░░░ relatively brief and he ░░░░░░░░ nothing new Now maybe ░░░░░░░░ ll come in his ░░░░░░░░ to the Security Council ░░░░░░░░ afternoon but this was ░░░░░░░░ speech fundamentally about multilateralism ░░░░░░░░ I know that doesn ░░░░░░░░ make hearts go pitter ░░░░░░░░ in the tight news ░░░░░░░░ but that is really ░░░░░░░░ he was talking about ░░░░░░░░ those international norms in ░░░░░░░░ HEMMER I thought two ░░░░░░░░ stick out I ve ░░░░░░░░ it clear that America ░░░░░░░░ not base their entire ░░░░░░░░ policy he said on ░░░░░░░░ to terrorism And then ░░░░░░░░ bit later he said ░░░░░░░░ external power can bring ░░░░░░░░ a transformation of hearts ░░░░░░░░ minds Did that stick ░░░░░░░░ to you BOLTON Absolutely ░░░░░░░░ first sentence obviously yet ░░░░░░░░ attack on the George ░░░░░░░░ Bush administration And the ░░░░░░░░ I think a real ░░░░░░░░ that the United States ░░░░░░░░ not going to be ░░░░░░░░ involved in dealing with ░░░░░░░░ or regional conflict as ░░░░░░░░ people in the region ░░░░░░░░ He had another line ░░░░░░░░ he said all the ░░░░░░░░ they going to have ░░░░░░░░ sit down and negotiate ░░░░░░░░ solution That s implicitly ░░░░░░░░ Iran Saudi Arabia Turkey ░░░░░░░░ s not going to ░░░░░░░░ in anybody s life ░░░░░░░░ but the president did ░░░░░░░░ the opportunity to slam ░░░░░░░░ by saying that the ░░░░░░░░ in Gaza in the ░░░░░░░░ Bank is not sustainable ░░░░░░░░ more pressure on Israel ░░░░░░░░ resolve those issues with ░░░░░░░░ Palestinians HEMMER I will ░░░░░░░░ conclude with one line ░░░░░░░░ the end This is ░░░░░░░░ America is prepared to ░░░░░░░░ he stated Taking action ░░░░░░░░ immediate threats which suggests ░░░░░░░░ ISIS a Khorasan they ░░░░░░░░ in Aleppo in Syria ░░░░░░░░ pursuing the world in ░░░░░░░░ the need for such ░░░░░░░░ is diminished and repeatedly ░░░░░░░░ came back for his ░░░░░░░░ for the world to ░░░░░░░░ Ten seconds we ve ░░░░░░░░ to run Mr Ambassador ░░░░░░░░ word BOLTON He believes ░░░░░░░░ international institutions as the ░░░░░░░░ a bastion of American ░░░░░░░░ He doesn t believe ░░░░░░░░ American strength he believes ░░░░░░░░ the United Nations And ░░░░░░░░ think that is what ░░░░░░░░ are going to see ░░░░░░░░ the next two years ░░░░░░░░ John Bolton thank you ░░░░░░░░ your time.”
