This is -- Fox News alert acorn did attack against America on the anniversary of nine elevenths.
Tonight fox is new information that the attack on the US consulate in Ben Ghazi.
The attack that killed our ambassador to Libya and three others was directly tied to al-Qaeda intelligence sources tell Fox -- a former detainee released from Guantanamo.
Was suspected to have led the attack.
The Libyan detainee was transferred to Libyan custody on good condition he would be kept in prison forever.
But guess what he was not.
And is now suspected that this former detainee -- led his -- against US consulate in Ben Ghazi.
And the White House White House blind sided in fact for an entire week the Obama administration is stuck to a story line that this year's nine elevenths anniversary attacked.
Was a reaction to an anti Muslim YouTube video.
Well it was not until today that they finally admitted the Libyan -- attack was an act of terrorism -- Allen west joins us Canadians there.
Good evening are you Greta I -- Why are you just learned this now.
Well I don't think we're just -- this now I think that you have an administration.
It was either trying to deceive the American people or showed simply inept inept and send incompetence.
We now know that al-Qaeda in the moon grab as well as and saw Al Sharia.
Was involved in this attack.
They operate in and around the area of being -- and the gentleman that you're referring to boo us and beyond.
Was a release from Guantanamo and he was someone to -- -- and saw -- Sharia.
And he was involved with this.
I'm looking at a document called Department of Defense joint task for Guantanamo Bay.
The secret document that we have -- And it says in the documents it's it's it's all about the released to -- says things like that he was associate of bin Laden in the Sudan.
That his risks the Libyan government itself considered him a dangerous man would no qualms about considering.
To and committing terrorist acts.
That -- risk this is our risk assessment as medium to high risk as he is likely to pose a threat to the US it's interests and it's allies.
We released them why we sent him to Libya and thinking that they would keep him forever.
While we shouldn't have an exact same thing that you saw happen in Iraq.
We'll see gentleman who was responsible for the kidnapping and murder of five US soldiers that was turned over to Iraq and he was actually Palestinian so we did not have to turn them over.
And the Iraqis eventually released him as well so again you see failed policies come from this administration.
About foreign policy detainee policy and on NASA security.
-- he what he was released in 2007 not there in this administration.
But I'm curious.
Would you have expected that we would have monitored him well you have -- is supposed.
Retracting them -- -- two and a half years in Afghanistan.
We had many individuals who came on Guantanamo that went back onto the battlefield in the rate of recidivism.
This quiet hi this is high enough and especially when you and they'll -- -- an ambassador.
Which is a tragic -- once again -- -- you know on 9/11 you're supposed to have a heightened sense of security and preparedness.
All across this entire globe because that's a time when.
The radical islamists want to look to see if they can found a weakness and exploit it.
And all the indicators show that there was something that was leading up to this event happening to include five to six previous attacks on that -- what they're being Gaza.
But I haven't I mentioned there was some discussion was the US had a quote -- or not it's not actionable intelligence.
I -- sort of dismissive of that because -- if I don't think you need to have some special warning to be on high alert.
In in an area that we are not popular or where there has been violence before.
Were you know that there is likely to be trouble.
And you represent the United -- we like we LA.
-- I'm not sure why do you not do you this morning for that this is not rocket scientist.
It is about looking at trends and and -- -- out there that leads you to understand that there is a threat constantly in these areas and not eleven as one of the days.
Were -- supposed to increase their security.
If you have to ask yourself why.
That -- Gaza consulate which is in the middle of Baghdad territories we know al-Qaeda and the moon grab operating in and around there.
This and saw Al Soria is operating there and they had no oil -- no security forces whatsoever -- are depending.
Upon basically Libya you know militia forces to provide the protection.
What are the other server and -- -- -- -- -- were reporting by Catherine -- one of my colleagues here is set.
Found in Cairo the the United States government the White House has said that that was the protests there.
-- they come -- as a result of this YouTube video and begin the -- the US embassy in Egypt.
Tweeted out or email or something I'm says so apologies about the video shortly -- the protest against.
Now it turns out to according to her reporting luncheonette and that what it was is that would be -- that the United States has not released a blind Sheikh.
Who is in our custody for the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.
Absolutely -- house question -- give those reports we have to be concerned once again.
You know either the administration is showing incredible incompetence or they're distorting the truth to the American people either -- -- horrible.
Why why would they distorted to relive what's in it for -- imagining -- you stated they're compensated distort at what's in it for them to the store.
Think the last thing that -- president wants to have this is -- seen -- failure reform policy the last thing this president wants to have his.
He's seen as someone that lacked the vision understand truly what -- when was about.
That he did not have any type of plan once you depose a dictator -- you know you create a leadership vacuum.
And while we trust the Muslim Brotherhood when you understand their charter understand what they stand for the fact that they said there were not going to run someone for president they did and that person want.
And you can go back and look at some of the statements that president -- -- -- he's not a friend to the United States of America.
Well one on us as a Catherine -- gave me she's a resource for all this is that when president morsi.
-- was president elect Egypt he said he is my duty and I will make all efforts to have them free.
He's making reference to the blind -- -- you mean he had he made a promise to Egyptian people that he would get the blind Sheikh.
Well no I don't but -- -- -- it's sort of see the cauldron the united see what's happening and if he's promised in the Egyptian people.
That's not happy we have no intention -- the State Department spokesperson said today and this is not happy in the blind -- has not been released.
And I think the -- where you need the statement coming from the president to set of going off to Las Vegas to fund raisers are going out last night Parnell would Jay-Z and beyoncé.
We have a serious situation here in United States we vascular -- And we have our embassy at risk on high alert capsule of the city of all let us protect our embassy -- I mean there's a lot going this is not business as normal.
And this is now when you need someone down -- situation room.
Develop and -- the strategies across the diplomatic atmosphere of the intelligence and information.
Military and economic solutions to make sure that we send the right type a message to the individuals who perpetrated these attacks -- thanks so -- may have tech.
