In an interview given to 60 minutes, President Obama and republican candidate Mitt Romney discuss various issues surrounding the current element of
national and world affairs, that may have set the stage for the first debate.
Mitt Romney criticized President Obama in remarks broadcast on Sunday for refusing to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister,
during this week’s United Nations General Assembly meeting, saying it sends a message that the administration is distancing itself from an important
Middle East ally.
Mr. Obama, speaking in a separate interview on the same program on CBS, said he spoke frequently with Mr. Netanyahu and described Israel as “one of
our closest allies in the region.”
He also challenged Mr. Romney, who has accused Mr. Obama of not standing up forcefully enough to Syria and Iran, to be more specific about his foreign
policy plans. “So if Governor Romney is suggesting that we should start another war,” Mr. Obama said, “he should say so.”
