seeks help from the united states. new reaction from the white house expected within the hour. and news right now. one world trade center, the i hey there. we're following the latest heated exchange between president obama's re-election team and the presumptive nominee mitt romney cause the before the killing of osama bin laden and a few days after a much debated web ad was released, that features bin laden touting the decision to take out the al qaeda leader, romney is responding to sharp words from obama campaign adviser robert gibbs who sa n denoonr was h pnebecause o the avtecioand t bravmen and women in our
military. and mitt romney said it was a foolish thing to do a few years ago. >> even jimmy carter would have given that order. >> we'll talk about that. much is being said and written about former president clinton narrating that ad and about he and president obama teamingit gis s ry son o "et thprs. wh dyoma o sreti in >> tnk it wt 'r heinfr a lot of peple. that maybet wasn't appropriate for the obama campaign to be politicizing the death of osama bin laden. but i would point out to you this. on mitt romney's campaign website, when in a certain foreign policy sections that he has, at the very top of one of
his issue positions, it does say president obama deserves credit "mt e es" ud mn'swn wos,eay ait myig, inng outoheact that mitt romney said he would not move heaven and earth to have gone after bin laden. is it fair game? we played a short clim of arianna huffington really upset with the obama re-election team. >> i think we've heard now for probably a year when, since mita cicay ry s ne aerim oorgnocy whh u un astoshg
nsering e resme this president and his team. >> if you're going to say he lacks leader sxip and then give him credit for getting rid of the worst terrorist. a mitt flop. >> is that because it's so severe you see it repeatedly? >> he said it before. and robert gibbs is right. i would not send someone intoth bbt sison colied tatiraf caie we cld nver fgetha ime the fmer president. some said he even appeared to be in costume because it seemed so inappropriate at the time. let me play what ed gillespie said regarding this bin laden ad. >> this is one of the reasons president obama has become one of the most divisive presidents in american history.
he took something that was awor is vy men ate ll rkn cpl o y >> wl -- t answer is yes, isn't it? let's put it on the table. do you think, maybe not mitt romney but someone in the publicity party, do you believe for a moment if all those s.e.a.l.s did not come out of their safe and sound, someone would not have attacked this president. to quote what was said t ohi lnggeid orred is. mdethcio
athti w takng cret fot thn. we can't go back a say if it wasn't successful, the fact is that it was successful. and i think the reason the obama campaign put this ad together, they may have known they would have gotten reaction like this. people saying that they're politicizing it. d erarnoas god strategy gameha onhe ecom thcomysothgth hahu himoioly. that is a k thing for this cycle. they want to be more about foreign policy. that's the bottom line. >> it's not as if mitt romney has not been talking to b to jimmy's point, what he says is a weakness regarding foreign policy. this is a response to the attacks from mitt romney even witnessed in the debates so it is not as if we're talking about foreign policy because the obama re-election team isrina
huinonasai dot nt opo in thriciisu ci omhegh >> i thinkt ohing to lebratthe fact that tey did such a great job. to turn it into a campaign ad is one of the most despicable things you can. do it is the same thing with the 3:00 a.m. call. you are not ready to be commander-in-chief. and it is also what makes politicians and political leaders act irrationally when it comes to war. vese.ee th w aayheba tt ulbearedy puics. sig? ion kw s is rit orwrng
here's wt i'll say about arianna. i respect her and i like her very much. i happen to disagree wholeheartedly. i think when you're the president of the united states and you go in and you take out the number one terrorist in the world and 27 others, you decimate al qaeda all across this world, you ought to be able 0%.est on thoseho hncininaar r spent me ithpron camp. et cera, et ceter ed gillespie is right. the country is divide. john mccain won more than 47% of the vote. and barack obama with virtually no foreign policy experience got osama bin laden and beat john mccain. it must suck to be on the other side of the shoe on this one. >> to the dynamic duo or super friends as we're calling them, utlaonipbad ndanpresident ctob
li. esencltobeevghe eseni bbeer i esenoba is reelected, aaron. >> of course bill clinton thinks that. he's a democrat. but also, bill clinton is need very badly by president obama. he is a very popular figure. he wants to be needed. but this helps him with his legacy. this helps him stay relevant. and i think bill clinton really likes that. >> that's what action he had rod ledil ts tigondors. sue. enark am n e imy backn 2008, i remember there was a huge meeting with the clinton donors and the obama
folks. i think it was at the mayflower in washington, d.c. i have to tell you, that was not a pleasant meeting by all accounts. consequently, to see them progress to these stages is good news. i want to remind folks at the th gof whdo wee alang neinhe ndx. tnkouaaon greatlappreciate your time. m being told we need to go to downtown new york. we've got news. they are placing this final beam that will make world trade center -- one world trade center the tallest building in new york city. these are live pictures. new york city officials are there marking this amazing milestone.pedeng t pogss ul en

one of the reasons that we enjoy such a strong alliance between our nations is because it is rooted in the deep friendship between our peoples. i felt it in my own an oo isinct:4 p. the meth thearth shook. mr. prime minister on, behalf of the american people, i want to say to you and the people of japan, we continue to stand with you as well. we stand with japan in honoring the loss and the missing.

potgud, inoth wll ta t icphe. th iheirvito unedtas by the japanese prime minister in the bilateral context since the change of government took place in japan. i wish to thank president obama for the warm welcome and hospitality angs how busy he is with official duties. i had a very good exchange of views with the president today s weerle t nfrm fm brde psptis t pse daignificanceof the japan/u.s. alliance and where the relations should be headed in the longer term. the president just now spoke about support and i would like
to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the unsparing support given by government and people of the united states. starting with operation conducted by u.s. forces at the time of the great eetwihe mies ay aern w paedway bu w ok re of ilenntil the very last moment following the great east japan earthquake. i also met with representatives of the fairfax county search and rescue team who came immediately following the earthquake, deployed in the disaster affected region to help the people. so
e dteins n ub i ionto realize the new u.s. forces plan in accordance with the security consultant committee joint statement released the other day, and to step up bilateral security and the defense in a creative manner. we need to work with regional partners and to build a multilayered network that is open, comprehensive and built in

ine disdeed chen guangcheng, would the united states grant him asylum? and prime minister noda, how would japan respond to a nuclear test and what would you like the u.s. to do to respond? >> obviously, i'm aware of the press reports on the situation in china. but i'm s hits meu i o bli tt n oly ttheig thin to do because it comports with our principles and our belief in freedom and human rights. but also because we actually think china will be stronger as
it opens up and liberalizes its own system. we want china to be strongtga b retish wl tat mh rongerndhi wl th mu me prosrous and strong. as you see improvements on human rights issues in that country. i know it wasn't directed to me but i'll make a quick statement around north korea. this was a topic of extensive discussion between myself edh s thk flti w poanouallianis nojutourwoouri buto theeon a whole.
and what i tried to do, since i came into office, to make sure that north koreans understood the old pattern of provocation that then gets attention and somehow insists on the world purchasing good behavior from them. that that pattern is broken. and what we've said is that the more youllnd coeral. d thghwe can ancite, d doato hypothize what might hapn in e coming that's on, i think pyongyang is very clear that the united states, japan, south korea, other countries in the region are unified. and insisting that it abide by its responsibilities, abide by international norms, that they will not be able to purchase
anything fromh an esenoba eli,ith regard to e soalled launch of satellite, the missile launch, we shared the view that it undermines the efforts of the various countries concerned to achieve resolution through dialogue. now in the latest round of a missile launch, they alsona ,beevth ases incoorednhe rent.n
seri cnc chrman's atent ne tbe complied with. and among japan, u.s. and korea, as well as china and russia, we need to communicate with each other fully. and also stress that china's role continues to be very important and cooperate with china whileesesa. anle m aim frotbfr pao ask a question. from tbs television. i have a question for both president obama and prime minister noda. how do you regard the relocation issue in the context of the joint statement? although you did not refer exntificallyli
is being taken is consistent with the security interests of both japan and the united states. we think we found an effective mechanism to move this process forward in a way that is is ao oime thdensooraonbeee ou tcotrsnd the alliance that is the lynchpin not only of our region but the region as a whole. we're confident that we can move forward with a, with an approach that realigns our base posture or our deployments but also, is continuing to serve the broad based interests of oursshas
lgeng ioularal laonipor qteom ti kristy parson? >> thank you, mr. president. we're coming up on the one-year anniversary of the killing of bin laden. i wonder if you would share some thoughts on that anniversary. and i also wanted to mention that your likely opponent said anybody would have made that call, even jimmy carter. so i'm curious t.in pridt amsrerd hre an ouhiran teatnapepeiv t s. islaying itight in marking this anniversary or if
you think you might advise against excessive celebration. >> well, let me make a couple points. first of all, i hardly think that you've seen any excessico bnggousce seb whkied er 3, ofur cizens. and it is a mark of the excellence of our intelligence team and our military teams, a political process that worked, and i think for us to use that time for some reflection, to give
f amyersonro a wh oer folks would do, i just recommend that everybody take a look at people's previous statements in terms of whether they thought it was appropriate to go into pakistan and take out bin laden. i assume people meant what they said when they said it. that has bee terar oershoaine inanno sgehe wld setngls wod l them explain it.
>> translator: president obama has been standing at the very forefront in the fight against terrorism, and i hold him in ebemi vry dirsrd for thails ns . amgsth, beterrosm, for example. between japan and the united states, cyber security as well. so we shall work together to rout out terrorism as well.ul ao
. ers no direct reference to china in the joint statement. what sort of views did you have on china in toward stability in the asia pacific connected with their advances in the oceans and spifnthe military weecni inas aaj rtr t regio in our exchange of views, both of us confirmed that viewpoint. china's development is an
opportunity for the international community, for japan and for the asia pacific. now i explained in the meeting to president ova mtuly neci ratnspad mm satictest a that i wl rk eadilyo implement this. i also told the president, i wish to realize a strategic dialogue among japan, usa and china. with a view that was a success.n
stnd fmlbelievwe lcome a acully rising china. we have developed a very important strategic and economic dialogue with china. we think what they've accomplished in empls the lifting million of people out of poverty is good for its own mean note we lieh cha ctinues togrow, as its influence continues to expand, that it has to be a strong partner in abiding by international rules and norms. whether those are economic norms like respecting intellectual
property, whether these are norms of dispute relvg esisue acss toawe wt cna toe ptnitus a venthinertialul and norms that everybody follows. and i think as china makes that transition, from a developing country into a major power, that it will see that over the long term, it is in its interests as well to abide by these rules and norms. eo all of our actions are not ecd al un prpesu
>> thank you very much. president obama concluding his news conference with prime minister noda. a lot of topics addressed. of course, north korea, this new web ad for president obama is released referring back to the decision to tst acblenghr enskbohe deathof ambilan. u rcanmeet e essterd, campgn adviser robert gibbs says that mitt romney when asked would he have made the decision to go into pakistan, obviously this was prior to the events that took place. he said he did not need to move heaven and earth to go in and kill the al qaeda leader.

interesting, he wanted to remind people. frankly a statement he made during the campaign in 2008 when he talked about, he would be willing to go it alone in pakistan if necessary. and by going it alone, that was criticized at the time. it was this question about violating the sovereignty of pakistan. a supposed ally. sometimes ally. however you want to describe aylelyheast cud t doctipot t ats wre h w going th ths. he wanted to say, hey, i said i would do this. i made it clear and i took a lot of heat on it at the time. >> let me quickly play what the president said when he was asked. we don't have that yet. let me move on to the questionsa
y sing heeeand i awe tprs pos, tt rt, at's like ste e in nfirming. they're not confirming it but they're not pushing back on the idea that this is happening or may have happened. in talking to a press aide off cam remark does the united states even have a specific policy in how it's handling dissidents that, in china, when they are looking for u.s. ene wa. thunedtas nte rel,ot looking like they're meddling in internal affairs but they want to make sure we know they bring up this
issue, particularly with this gentleman. the blind dissident in china. that his treatment of his family has been brought up previously so they bring that up. we're at step one of confirmation on this. they're not confirming it but about enone'in tiann sqre >>epte o of ththg thisdministratn t up every six months, there was a high level meeting of at least secretary clinton and secretary geithner with the equivalent, there appears in every six months, either in beijing or here in the united states. that's about to take place in china this week. now here you have all this tension. it is mostly about economic issues. of course, i
