10:16 am
other people that impacts our organization's ability to take the nation to war or respond to a disaster that may occur. my frustration lies more with more as much as i think we're having an impact here and we've got people coming forward, is it coming fast enough. is change coming fast enough. >> that was tisha thompson reporting. if you want to learn more about lieutenant colonel james' case. go to there you can see why she thinks the guard system is failing service members when they come forward with rape allegations. just click on investigations. the middle east is in turmoil right now. saudi arabia sending military. >> joining us to talk more about it is "meet the press" moderator chuck todd. chuck, the u.s. in very
10:17 am
difficult spot between iran israeli and saudi arabia. at this point, we're two days away any idea if there's a clear path forward for the administration? >> there's not. i for the life of me don't know how he'll sell this politically here at home to congress. a nuclear deal by its definition, if you do one, it's going to allow iran to be stronger in the region a stronger iran is something saudi arabia fears. it's because of what iran is doing in yemen in their mind is why saudi arabia is militarily acting in yemen. the united states helping saudi arabia there, working with iran over there, working with iran in iraq. it's complicated. can you be on both sides? is it going to be a point where nobody trusts the u.s. and everybody is nervous about it or can the u.s. go in and dictate moves in a way they used to be able to do? i don't think so. in this modern era, it's hard to do that. i don't know how he gets out of this. >> one of the more interesting things to come out of this we
10:18 am
learned who is spying on who, right? everybody is spying on everybody. >> shocker. >> obviously there's -- this whole iran negotiation has made the u.s.-israeli relationship a little tougher, the u.s. saudi arabia relationship a little tougher. egypt, israel and saudi arabia three incredible allies for the united states. the u.s. wants to cut this deal with iran but can you keep everybody happy? >> if you don't cut the deal what happens? >> if they don't cut the deal it's hard to imagine there isn't some sort of military confrontation with iran. at some point, whether the israelis saudis the united states they'll say okay we're going to break out. we've got to stop their system there. that's the president's argument. even a bad deal is no deal because no deal leads to a
10:19 am
military conflict. >> quickly give us your take on harry reid saying he's not going to seek re-election. >> i'm not that surprised when somebody who is 75 says gees i don't know if i want to commit to a job until 2022. i wasn't actually that surprised. look chuck schumer replacing harry reid is the important point to focus on. he will bring a different style. he is known as a dealmaker. he is certainly somebody who is going to be more of a public figure. harry reid a little more come rah shy. chuck schumer and camera shy never used in the same sentence. >> also one of the fiercest en fighters behind closed doors? >> yes, but always trying to find a deal. harry reid was known as that guy before he ascended to the top spot. sometimes the spot itself forces you to be partisan and the question is can chuck schumer still be a deal maker and a partisan leader? >> that's tough to do.
