Serious news now while Bolivia's president is and it looks like.
The attack in -- got get our consulate there was pre plans the Obama administration is still claiming that there was quote.
Actionable intelligence foreshadowing that attack with solicited us.
We certainly are aware that Libya is a place where there have been increasingly.
Some violent incidents and -- security.
Personnel that the State Department thought.
Were required were in place it obviously didn't prove sufficient to me that the nature of the attack and sufficient and that and that moment.
You've been following this over the about there -- no actionable intelligence.
That's the administration's position so.
Did America and back abandon its ambassador and its staff in the face of a known risk of attack.
Let's go to lieutenant colonel Tony -- a fellow at the center for advanced defense studies good morning great to see if I see her do that.
OK so there have been reports of at least forty hours prior to the attack in the right -- That US officials there were alerted that there was going to be some kind of attack.
And this runs in -- and direct contradiction to what the administration is saying what do you what do you make of that -- -- make I would go with the Libyan government ministers are great scene in the movie that we all knew -- kids called jaws.
Ford Richard Dreyfuss is looking a dead body there and and -- trying to figure out the shark attack the body or not you're saying.
He opens up and says this and they they say what is this is the boating accident.
This is no boating accident this was a shark attack this -- -- planned this was deliberate this was laid out purposely.
What you see here going on as a backtracking by the administration who does not want to admit there's a terrorist tacked on her watch within sixty days of an election.
Why not admit we all know that many folks in this part of the world.
Hate Americans and -- what we stand for -- just a -- why I think that's the thing to do because they were already going that direction let me tell you -- Jay -- comments about no actionable intelligence that's code for.
We had the intelligence which has not to act on at their -- not actionable.
They also do some major -- Sonny don't -- the Fort Hood shooter they were careful and to this day claim that was quote unquote workplace violence that was another ten.
Way too careful we know what happen to -- that exact situation.
Our men there at the consulate but -- seem like they were certainly on and on undergone right under it did not have the kind of weapons that they needed just like weapons does that need to change -- -- not just our embassies or consulates as well.
Let me say we -- intelligence failure massive scale by the fact that we have -- so much Obama's -- Woodward book the -- to the New York Times has helped the enemy determined -- to not be detected.
With that said then on top of that we chose to not do the necessary things to protect the investor.
At a time when we had a 9/11 anniversary what do we need we need to actually get what's required we have to put us -- bring a security around these guys.
And frankly we have to be listening to people when they tell us when -- We -- have a ring of security because we have a local local military around and then there -- few as we know Navy SEALs they're acts Navy -- there.
But what -- we need it to better protect our people every government has to be responsible for our security of our embassies in the case of Libya we don't we have don't we.
We don't have a strong central government.
-- four west one think with the first -- you were trying to fix that next we have to look at how we secure our members.
This guy our ambassador Stephens was set up to fail.
They put in a situation where they knew that there was going to be violence that is say that there was a trend of this at least four attacks against western -- since June.
And yet instead of being doubled down on personal security for guys give me a break he should had a ring of security of our own guys plus Libyans we trusted that didn't happen.
And there have been numerous attacks -- -- interest leading up to us so we'll keep watching this one because we want to keep our -- safe.
Not just there but every play doesn't around the world certainly and we are -- target you know that lieutenant -- -- -- Tony -- thank you so much thank you for coming and we'll -- general --
