sweetheart deal with china, you know, on oil because we are not buying all their stuff, because he has a great record. the question is minister will be concerned, voting for this or on the basis of the economy. normally at a 6-year point in most president's history they don't do well. president clinton was an exception. look what happened to bush in 2006, and the defense budget was cut by the tea party on the budget control act. president obama didn't cut it. he asked for $115 billion more than allowed by the budget control act. >> if the aggressive action against i.s.i.l. in syria and iraq goes well, could it turn into an asset for the democrats. >> normally when the president deploys american military force in a situation like this one, folks rally to the flag, to the president, and it may - you know, in some instances it may help his party. the problem is the american people are no longer being fooled. they are watching i.s.i.l. behead people, watching the president come out at a news conference and say we don't have a strategy for dealing with i.s.i.l. they have watched the president

matter of fact, it has become more robust as china has arrived with a military aircraft and doing some citings today that may have some potential for locating the exact spot where the plane went down. the prime minister indicating it went down in the middle of the southern indian ocean, of course that is a vast stretch of watch. so far they have not yet been able to locate and confirm a debris field. we can only speculate because he didn't explain it that they have done some interpretation of radar data along with satellite images to determine that the plane crashed in the indian ocean, but the search now is for the debris field and of course for the flight data recorder, the black box. >> reporter: and randall we have chinese satellite images we saw earlier and also have the satellite images now that i guess it's the french that are saying they saw, a container ship that says it might have spotted some debris and also an aircraft in the area, most in the general vicinity saying they have found debris. >> it's a little bit i don't want to say confusing but the french satellite ima

apart and became a full communist state. you say nixon used the exit to open relations with china. we won't get a strategic advantage out of what's happening in iraq, unless president obama can figure out how to improve relations in iran. what i'm suggesting is the iraq war, compared to the vietnam war, in the sense that both were unnecessary and produced catastrophic failure. nixon, to some extent. redeemed that failure through his opening to china, which had fast centraled eegeic benefits for the united states. by putting the soviet union at an advantage. what i'm suggesting is we need similar creativity and boldness on the part of the obama administration. my own sense is trying harder to fix iraq is not likely to produce a positive outcome. maybe we can examine this longstanding isolation of iran as something that should be revisited and perhaps there to there's a chance to make a strategic gain that war. >> you are critical of the bush administration and the obama administration. you talk about bush being reckless in iraq, and obama being naive, listless. do you think he will

asia including japan, india and the united states are strong militarily so china's military assertiveness can be checked, and we share that common interest with india. we also share an interest in opposing the same terrorist groups that are pakistani-based and al qaeda, which is recently made threats against the indian government. india has the third largest muslim population in the world. it's been a long-time american project to build up the strategic military and political relationship with india. the relationship slid back over the last few years. here's an opportunity to president obama and prime minister modi to return that relationship to one of positive forward momentum. i happy that's the result of this visit by the prime minister to washington. >> it's hugely important, because india might exceed the population of china in 15 years. it has an enormous middle class, and it's economy is tremendously important to us, too. ambassador nicholas burns, very good to have you with us. thank you. >>> for more stories from around the world. >> we begin to capital hill where j

, australia, china, france, germany, brazil, everywhere, has some up with statements saying that genetically modified foods are safe. as safe as conventional organic foods, and in many cases they are far more healthy than even organic foods. we have a whole new generation of have it tin enhanced products coming out. i think there is a bit of disingenuousness in the argument that there's a right to know. there's no interest by activists, anti-biotech organizations for a right to know. there are right to know labels. we would say that genetically modified corn is modified to prevent micro toxins which we find in organic corn. that's a right to know. genetically modified golden ricin creasing beta carrotine which would save millions of lives. she wants to cut out choice. if we label we're not going to have any choice on these things, because scare organizations are trying to demonize perfectly safe products that the science community has already evaluated. >> the scientific literature overwhelmingly favorable to the gmos, and putting these labels on, might scare people? >> in terms of the scien
