Plus the attack on the -- -- consulate that killed four Americans including an ambassador to Navy SEALs was -- planned or not.
Now what would think this would be a simple yes or no answer but as is usual with the administration it's complicated over the weekend UN ambassador Susan Rice.
She stuck to -- talking points saying that this was not premeditated.
-- really let's watch this.
Best assessment we have today.
Is that in fact this was not a pre planned premeditated.
That what happened initially was it it was a spontaneous.
Reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo.
It as a consequence of the video.
Our current assessment is that what happened -- -- Ghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous.
Reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo.
And almost a copycat.
Of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo.
Which were prompted of course by the video what our assessment is as of the present.
Is in fact what it -- began spontaneously.
In Ben Ghazi.
As a reaction to what it transpired some hours earlier in Cairo.
-- spontaneous they had rocket propelled grenades in their back pocket of the right time.
That's not what the Libyan president thinks listener what he said.
Was this a long planned.
Tack here is far -- -- or what what do you know about that.
The way these.
Acted and move.
I think -- And that choosing.
So called demonstration.
I think we have no this leaves us with no doubt that this has -- and determined to determine.
And joining me now for Hannity investigation we have the chairman of the house homeland security committee and that is New York congressman Pete king and Texas congressman Louis go over.
-- it's pretty said we live in a country at a moment where I eight believe the Libyan president and Libyan.
Officials over this nonsense that our own government in this administration sent is absolutely right and put -- former judge had on.
You look at the evidence you've got a film a video ridiculous video from.
And it's out there for months.
Nobody noticed a lot of does is -- would have any effect.
And then all of a sudden Egyptian.
Run by the Muslim Brotherhood nothing -- -- I don't -- up morsi could stop anything goes.
And all of a sudden they start blast -- that rot before 9/11.
People get started up and all of a sudden spontaneously.
You have all these weapons show up.
And killer you -- oracle weeping lied to congress and believe in the lie would be -- a couple in a couple of areas one is that this was spontaneous.
We didn't have extra security at our embassies that is malpractice as far as I'm concerned actually for -- Egypt.
The embassy was actually warned that there are going to be -- demonstrations in Cairo that -- And yet nothing was unknown spoke to -- -- even know he gets one point six billion dollars and he did -- do -- protect us as far as Libya.
That -- of -- Ben Ghazi is al-Qaeda stronghold and -- -- Also has a large numbers of forces left and al-Qaeda in the Arabian.
Kyra migrate Q I am all located in that part of.
But -- -- -- -- -- Libyan president and we have high ranking Libyan officials that have come out and are now saying.
That they gave a direct warning to the United States that this was coming and they knew it and we did nothing.
Well has been concerned about security at that you're getting into whether or not this was planned for site.
It was between malpractice not to have security at that consulate on September 11 in the middle of al-Qaeda territory when the American ambassador is coming there.
And also knowing that we knew we didn't know to a -- demonstrations planned for Cairo.
To me it makes absolutely that's indefensible that's also has -- investigated or.
And us and -- and and Valerie Jarrett I read she's gone on vacation it is convenient.
But she has more security than our ambassador at two we lost to Navy SEALs -- -- only not only do we lose and -- But the statement that we would win the press got.
Said that -- former navy seal was killed.
Running for cover.
-- I know I at least that's what that's just the opposite of what I wrote well the account you can find them is that well the administration says.
That he was seeking cover running for cover at the time he was killed.
But let me tell you if you wonder.
You so well is not enough evidence the fact that we have department saying we're community partnering with them.
-- these Muslim front organizations.
If you want evidence of Muslim brother influence in this administration.
Look at the fact that this is the only group of leaders in the entire world.
That is saying all of this is one because they hated America is not because they don't like our administration.
It was all about a video that's what they're being -- about their Muslim -- -- for the first I wanna know this question congressman king -- is really important.
-- -- the Muslim Brotherhood who.
Billion taxpayer dollars and we know that -- was the head of the Muslim brother -- we know we recently and I that was the most under -- Iran and Adolf junior -- -- -- -- right so my question is what -- we -- -- stop funding them and why didn't the president understand that the Muslim Brotherhood was likely successor.
Two to Mubarak why did they not see that I set -- on this pro.
Where did you and others right -- because hiding from reality the fact is the president ever since you began the apologies or.
In this summer of 2009.
Has been apologies for these groups for the Muslim Brotherhood and others.
And also the fact is that the reason they don't know -- -- -- the terrorist attack is that shows his policies have felt that failed miserably isn't I have policy in the middle.
So there are greater the scrutiny here we are -- days out of an election as -- tonight.
And so they went for political purposes they will willingly lied -- the American people.
About what happened here why so so -- to show that is -- apology Richard -- laden is dead and because of his policies -- Qaeda was long reports for them to admit that al-Qaeda led this attack I knocked it is -- failure is shrug apologetically and Australia but he surely a spike the football he went to Cairo inject it whenever you went to Cairo and he said in Cairo.
I'm stopping torture in America.
No enhanced interrogation.
No bin Laden no get -- -- -- no rendition -- all the things you post may look at this is weaker.
And and in fact just this afternoon we hear that the DOJ is now going to be.
These this incident Sean.
These guys are -- -- opened.
These guys are at war with us criminal where they were preparing a criminal case for the courts.
There Warwick does -- mother I'm to go out there that read there's mission statement which says you know the Koran is our our -- way -- is our way and the highest honor is to die in the NATO while president -- -- the morning -- the attacks we mentioned -- he didn't even mention Egypt.
And get more -- terribly back honestly was also actually speaking in Arabic encouraging demonstration and they changed their tune four times even the president said it was terror.
After coup the enormous criticism then Susan Rice goes out and says the opposite we can't make up their mind.
This to me and it in the media wants to beat at Mitt Romney which is driving me we'll look at -- -- like this.
What they stand in the way of messages July the president has known members of terrorist organization come to the white White House.
Come to the wild baby that's that they'll basically the message isn't going -- -- bachelor when Dorsey coming next and a month.
Well there are already asking for the blind -- that I can't imagine anything worse than this and as they do that this election's over I go there what they'll do is have put it off the last week and rightly so -- and even -- seeing that not you have to Netanyahu -- disgrace I gotta go tries to deceive and also we don't coming up we have reached --
