in a military commission. >> now we're seeing with afgh afghanist afghanistan, this is george bush all over again. but let me ask you this question, as a lawyer, as a legal analyst, does this matter as much as people are saying? i don't want to talk about the politics of it right now. how fundamental difference is there between the case that would have been presented in federal court here in new york city and the case that will now be presented in guantanamo before a military tribunal. in respects that are very different. a military judge, a military jury. in the united states we have civilian judge, civilian juries. that's a very different symbol. in terms of the actual procedures in place, it won't plo look that different. certainly symbolically a room full of military people looks very different than a jury from lower manhattan. >> you and i as lawyer, i started reading today a lengthy document that compared the rules. surprisingly few differences. that's why'm wondering if this is a mountain out of a mole hill about how the case will be handled? >> i don't know if a mountain ou

speechwriter for george w. bush, mr. frum. welcome to both of you. david, let me begin with you. was it standard practice or is this is your prying to you that the israeli government knew the precise content of the speech before it was delivered and was given a chance to push back? >> it is standard practice to share a speech with all important stakeholders. clearly the administration felt the israelis were an important stakeholder here. it is surprising to me they allowed it to go so long and i think they thought they were going to spring something on the israelis by showing them at the lass minute and got them -- to pushback. you put your finger in your -- opening statement on the key point about all of this, though. which is -- they -- was this the news the president wanted to make in his speech about the arab? 80% of the speech is about the arab, ball rain and syria. what's the headline that he got? about the '67 borders. is that what he wanted? find that hard to believe. if so, that's kind of -- that's a failure in and a disappointment for the administration. >> what david said is

, a constitutional law professor at george washington university, also a criminal defense attorney, a practitioner who knows the courtroom and principles. jonathan, welcome. >> thank you. >> so you are a criminal defense attorney, well regarded. if anthony weiner walked in as a client, how would you assess his potential exposure. >> i think it's unlikely he'll face a criminal charge on these facts, but we don't have a lot of the facts. he already did a very clever thing in avoiding the area where most politicians are indicted in this city and that is not calling for a federal investigation. if he had done that, he would have had to speak with federal investigators. if you lie to federal investigators, you violate 18 usc 2001. it's usually how you respond to these scandals that prove the undoing of these guys. >> so you're saying something critically important here. if you lie to the fbi, any federal agent, law enforcement agent, you're violating federal law, go to jail for five years, it's a felony. he lied to the media, so he has had heaven and hell descend upon him from the media

get, you know, warm up to. so why him? she apparently had george cloob clooney at her beck and call, john cusack, and she ends up with anthony weiner. >> well, you would know better than me what women look for. but i think a sense of humor. he's noted for that. and his intelligence. not evident lately but of course over the years. he's courted her actively. when he met her in the 2008 presidential campaign when she was by hillary clinton's side so long, he met her there and actively pursued her and obviously was victorious because 11 months ago, bill clinton performed the vows, officiating at their wedding. >> and that is what was so interesting to me. what happens when all of this breaks? she's not by his side but we hear she caws hillary clinton. he calls bill clinton. and, you know, this is a woman who has been with hillary clinton through the lewinsky scandal. hillary clinton goes from first lady of arkansas to the secretary of state of the united states. is she a person do you think that has political aspirations of her own? >> well, one would think. actually, she told the "vog

. joining me now are david frum, former speechwriter for george w. bush and krista freeman global editor at reuters. you just wrote a fascinating article about this phenomenon, what did you find the actual impact of globalization has been on the middle class? >> so -- thank you very much, eliot. my piece was based michael spence, a nobel prize-winning economist. he's an adviser to the chinese communist party on their five-year plan. he's someone who knows globalization and believes in it, right, but he did work on trying to figure out what is it doing to the american middle class? what he found is global capitalism isn't working for the american middle class. not only are the jobs going away, but the jobs that people have are moving into sectors where people are paid less. so those 07% who said things aren't working for us, they're right. >> mcdonald's hired 50,000 people, that's great news, 50,000 jobs, but eight bucks an hour and the new hires are at $24 bucks an hour and not the 48. david, you're dissenting on this. >> if the problem were global capitalism you would expect the problem sh

george bush. they were not true emoters. so it's not a hazard getting to the nomination. perhaps when you're up against somebody as gifted as president obama is, then it becomes a problem. i think when you look at what mitt romney has to offer, what they are banging on is that this country has to be about dollars and cents and jobs a year from november and they are banking that his credentials as a businessman and as a certain extent as massachusetts governor will stand him in good stead with republican voters. >> candy, he went for what i would call the economic jug gu lar. he has taken the economic model from europe. it's hard to imagine anything more critical. you're european. >> horrible. >> absolutely. >> but he went through the litany of legitimate economic data, unemployment, foreclosures, everything that has the public deeply concerned but did he given as that will touch a nerve that is sufficient? >> listen, i'll tell you two of the biggest applause lines -- and when you say answers, there were not details. but he did talk about capping government spending at 20% of the econo

george w. bush in terms of military commissions and in terms of people being held for many, many years without really recourse to what we consider a normal trial. >> peter, for both of you what is so clear when you read these wikileaks documents is that the ability to break through and actually find out who detainees are, were they in fact members of al qaeda, it is simply not there. we don't have capacity no matter how many interrogations there have been. some were relying on the fact that some had a watch, very common watch, that was given out at a certain al qaeda training facility to say here's the link. as though somehow there are 1 million people with that watch and that's the evidence we're relying on. when you see this as a lawyer and someone who has been a federal prosecutor, you look at how does it make you feel in that capacity to go forward? >> i think it shows that the original sin was setting it up in the first place. we have had wars before. we have had situations where we had dangerous people who were picked up. we had procedures. we had military tribunals and military
