wrong, to clarify that position and are less a, there are situations in which you would approve of that technology. kind of double down to say, well, in instances such as these, referring to boston, yes, but the $50 liquor store robbery you alluded to, that as well, to very obviously different events of difference severity, but he did not distinguish, which coming back to wondering whether this whole drone filibustering thing was just out of place. >> you wonder if what he was trying to do was send some sort of message to the establishment gop, we are talking about terrorism i am willing to be more open to these things, still, that gas station part was really confusing. he used to work on going imminent threat, but the scary part when he was making his clarification. for those of us in the tea party believe we might be on some of those terrorists lists, as you call them, this whole scenario could get very infringing on our
constitutional liberties. neil: what worries me, and maybe i worry because i tend to focus on things that no one else does because land is crazy, but i remember when it provided that he imagery where you get by on someone behind walls or in this case the canvas over a boat. i was thinking, wow. move a few feet and you could do the same with the folks in the house to on the boat. i guess we can and i guess we do. i know it revealed just have a beard and stupid i am, but it did make me think, what if they turn in on the wrong persoo? with a turn it on us and don't like what is being said cub so they spied on. >> with that is exactly right. but if they say we have to register all of our firearmssand then they say, oh, well we were hunting for a criminal with an ongoing immense threat, we just happened to notice, you have an unregistered firearm in your house. they're coming for you. and it does not matter whether that criminal that was supposedly outside your home was live juggernaut.

can release by you in everything that you do, even in the privacy of your own home. now, i do believe that one of the objectives of terrorism is ted disrupts the american economic system, and i do believe the more steps that we can take -- and you know me. i am a civil libertarian, concerned about celebrities -- civil liberties, but i believe it is difficult to run a prosperous economy if we have people trying to blow up buildings and schools and shopping centers and so on. so i see -- in fact, an opinion has moved a little bit still left on this as i see what has happened in boston. of course september 11th and other attacks. that is where i am. bottom line, the more secure we are, you know, the better it is for our economy to continue to flourish. neil: it is that push and shove, and then stand what you're saying. i am sympathetic to both sides, as i was to rand paul squander right now. he is in the middle of all of this.
what worries me is that we as a country, to keep ourselves safe, will justify almost any actions on the part of the government to make sure that we are. in the government can use as an excuse to snoop on my e-mails, snoop in my house, a step in my public websites. and that is going to get dangerous because they can always turn the camera on the wrong guy. >> well, that is exactly right. and not just cameras. you know, those passes when you go on the roads are not to use the tolls. great technology. but it means that the government knows where you are. literally tracking where you are neil: the mail you a speeding ticket if you got from one soul to the next a little too quickly. you get a speeding ticket in the mail i've heard. >> tell me about it. i've gotten them, so i can confirm that story. look. i do think that we really have to be very careful about how we make this balance between security and safety and our civil liberties, but i also believe we are living in a new
age of terrorism. i am petrified that we are going to see more kinds of attacks like we saw in boston, and i think that that could do serious harm, not just our freedoms and, but to our prosperity in this country. neil: always it seeing you. thank you. one of the best writers and thinkers i know in the business. by the way, you think that the cameras are overkill. you know things are bad. bob says we should start screening moslem students in this country because we don't they will kill. he was serious. so is retired colonel who says the problem is not the terrorists against me again. the problem is that terrorists might already be here. ♪ at tyco integrated security, we consider ourselves business optimizers.

and. far more than students, i am appalled and worried about a policy allowing radical extremists into this country as long as they crouched for. and that is a problem. it is not ultimately about the impressionable kids. it is about the ringleaders to convert them and we don't know how these radical muslims that come into this country preaching violence and hate and anti-semitism. they are the core of the problem. students who are young and impressionable, when you have a saudi train radical fanatical mollah telling his parishioners not to integrate into american society, that to become coffers, then we have a real problem. i want to be much more selective about who we let and. especially, you know, i don't want to draw near, but i will tell you, saudi arabia would not
allow a single chapel or synagogue on and the arabian peninsula. yet we allow them to come here and literally terrorized american muslim communities. we should have a lot that no country such as saudi arabia that practices intolerance can fund or sponsor religious institutions and our own country neil: i concur with you. i don't share bob's you which is sort offstopping all muslim students who are here. i tend to worry, the folks doing the teaching the kids presumably during the learning, but having said that, they have done studies. you're more upon this, i'm sure, than i am. a lot of these college educated kids are not americanized. in fact come quite the opposite. not all of them, it's your point, but enough that it does raise concerns. why that happens, why they
become less inclined to like america and more inclined, many of them, to inflect harm upon america. there are huge distinction is to migrate you, but it is something that has been picked up in the press and even acknowledged by those who don't support extreme views like kicking all the muslims out of here. they say it is a phenomenon that is unique to our college campuses. why is that? >> well, two factors in play here. one political correctness make history everybody as though they are all law-abiding episcopalians only believe much of anything. whereas, the problem, one thing he understands now more less, is that, yes, the problem is middle eastern muslims. specify middle east and muslims. north africa through pakistan. indonesian moslems are not a problem. they have not been a problem. but the middle east, they generate more of these religions and also generate a lot of
hatred. and i think we need to do a better job of not barring, but as greeting students from places such as saudi arabia, except. part of the problem is, the company's nutritional call traditional societies and simply cannot cope with american freedoms. does he take the saudis, big deal, lots of money in the family. hear your just another joke around the block and you have to study. they're not used to that at all. neil: a good point. when. >> the radical prime minister of greece was a berkeley college professor and turned against us. neil: and grad school, i was a say in ambassador's son. biggest as on thet. that is also a say. just arrogant, condescending. he did not do any genuine harm, but to be around him for me was psychologically harmful because i am serious such a jerk. my experience was not good.
