8:07 am
arabia. cbs news contributor michael morrell is former deputy and acting director of the cia. what do you make of the president's decision and the fact he put in the a press release. >> there's a long history of u.s. presidents putting priority on national security and strategic relationships over human rights and democratic freedoms. president obama did that with a coup in egypt where he refused to call it a coupe so he didn't have to cut off more aid. he did it more elegantly than president trump just did it and this is an important relationship with the saudis but what i would have suggested is that you need to put some sanctions on saudi arabia so you find the right balance, the president didn't do that here. >> what message duds this send
8:08 am
to folks inside the cia and that the cia is trying to recruit when the president seems to distance himself from their findings. this isn't the first time. >> the unfort nunate thing is tt this is public. somebody leaked the cia judgment and it became a public discussion. usually these things aren't discussed publicly. there are times when presidents disagree with the analysis presented to them. when i was briefing president bush every morning he would frequently say "michael, i disagree with this" and then we would discuss it. so it's usually not public. so what's important is that the cia continue to put its view forward. one of the important things to me here is not the judgment about whether mbs was involved but what did the cia tell the president about implications of no sanctions of letting him get away with it versus the implications of putting some sort of sanctions on to send a message? that's the analysis i would
8:09 am
like. >> what message does it send? i think people are struggling with this, that a person can be lured to the embassy, that you can be hacked up, slaughtered, that the ally can lie about it and we will still stand by that ally. what message does that send to the world and what is to prevent this from happening again? >> i think it sends the wrong message. what the president did sends the wrong message and i'm fully in support of some sort of sanctions that sends a message to mbs. and behind the scenes, back channel, i would say to him this is strike one and in this game of baseball there are two strikes so if you do this again we'll be in a different place. it's important to send a message people can't get away with this. that's why i would have done sanctions. >> but implicit in the president's remarks is that strike two or three you'll still get away with it because -- here's what i want to focus on -- iran. the president is saying iran is the big game and yes this is bad but let's keep our eye on the most national security ball.
8:10 am
so is that right? does he have it right in terms of the primacy of the iranian threat that saudi arabia is helping the u.s.? >> i think there's two critical aspects to our strategic relationships with saudi arabia. one is iran. iran wants to be the hegemonic power in the middle east and we need to push back against this and we need the saudis to help us. the second is we need societal and religious reform in saudi arabia in order to dampen extremism for that continues to flood the world. >> it looks like mbs will be at the g20. we'll see if the two immediaters meet. michael, thank you so much. >> good to see you all. >> happy holidays, thank you. two of the biggest rivals in sports just made an expensive bet. >> i'm willing to risk $100,000 that says i birdy the first hole. so that's how good i feel heading into this match. >> the high stakes matchup between golf icons phil mick
