On Wednesday, Wolf Blitzer returned to the program as guest host, amidst the current unrest in the Middle East. Journalist Dan Rather joined Blitzer and weighed in on the reaction to the crisis from Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama:
"My personal opinion is this was a mistake by Governor Romney," said Rather regarding the presidential candidate's attack on the president's handling of the situation.
"Not that long ago, Wolf," continued Rather, "it was considered by both parties that when you had a situation like this, you didn't criticize, at least not immediately, the president, whether he was Democratic or Republican, whomever was in charge."
The anchor of "Dan Rather Reports," also criticized President Obama's decision to continue his campaign schedule at an event in Las Vegas Wednesday. "It may very well be a mistake by President Obama to continue campaigning," said Rather. "This is serious what's happening in the Middle East, and it will have serious consequences and reverberation for quite some time to come. Particularly in the case of Egypt."
Author Robin Wright also joined Blitzer and shared her feelings on the death of her friend J. Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was killed in the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. "He was a wonderful man who had a sense of the streets as well as the elites," said Wright.
"Despite the security restrictions that limit so many diplomats, he was always willing to go out. And he saw Libya through three - all three transition phases. Two years under Moammar Gadhafi, then as the liaison chief in Benghazi for a year and then as ambassador to Tripoli."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Wright talks about how Stevens would have wanted his killers brought to justice.
