Back to the deadly terrorist attack on the US consulate in Libya the Obama administration privately briefing members of congress about the assault that killed four Americans after words.
Lawmakers from both parties expressing frustration and criticism.
Arizona Senator John McCain saying they are still -- in an anti -- -- video for triggering the attack.
And -- that that they thought that it was some kind of spontaneous demonstration.
But the pointless.
But they still are blaming the video.
And they have a fundamental misunderstanding.
They believed it was the video it's not the -- California establishment but the key and as a Republican and chairman of the house armed services committee he took part in the -- and joins us live this morning congressman thank you.
-- -- -- emerged from that meeting he called the useless and worthless.
Were you equally aggrieved -- you emerged from that meeting.
The -- -- the idea.
That they've been telling us for a week that there was -- demonstration that spun out of control when everybody that had any.
In the idea of what was really going on knew that it was a terrorist attack.
It was a follow up to 9/11 it was.
Led by al-Qaeda.
I mean let's get real witness.
We know we're in a war on terrorism and the president now wants to make this a legal action.
He is -- -- the FBI now total control.
This this is just a total joke.
The president the commander in chief the one person that is elected by all Americans.
Is so busy campaigning that he can't focus on what's happening around the world.
Our ambassador and three other great Americans were killed.
On property that should be -- as sacred as in their -- living room.
This is just.
An outrage that you know that.
That's hard to -- congressman the Press Secretary finally admitted yesterday what was obvious it seems to most every one.
Unchecked the use the term self evident is finally describe it as a terrorist attack and yet.
There was the president in the Univision -- review.
Still blaming the videotape in your mind.
Does all of this confusion and contradiction.
Call into question the competency.
Of the Obama administration.
Well I think that that self -- it's.
It in your opening segment where the where the media presence -- you can't change.
From within you know his lack of leadership the ability to really get things done -- old self evident.
He was going to change our situation around the world he has changed.
We have less respect around the world where people feel that they can attack us without any worry of retribution.
And then afterwards were sending some Marines to go beef up some of the embassies.
And yet there are some places where the Marines.
Cannot even enter the country.
And and were still supporting these countries this is totally -- do you think the White House is deliberately.
Trying to -- a false narrative and -- -- is that playing politics.
With national security.
Well I think.
That's also -- up very obvious.
We put it now the FBI has total control.
When and in fact if they find out who did this they have no authority to arrest somebody.
-- it's just.
We've seen this now for years where they try to -- That act that this war on terrorism is just.
A law breaking the law.
And dealing with a this -- matter.
If reassignment to the FBI and -- -- nobody can talk about it and put up the -- you election that's what president wants.
Does the Obama administration where the president himself.
Think that the war on terror is over war in the alternative.
Maybe he is concerned that Americans will learn that.
Under his watch.
The war on terror has actually -- we've lost ground is that a possible.
You have to wonder why they would be putting out this message that it was just -- Demonstration.
That spun out of control and all of a sudden people just happen to have -- PGs and murders.
-- -- -- all -- you hate to think.
That the president would purposely mislead the American people but it it sure looks like it to me does he need to address them directly.
And clear up all this confusion he is after all commander in chief.
Well -- out -- if if he spent some time in Washington.
And had his briefings that the that are available.
And maybe god is.
Had some cabinet meetings and did some things that a president should be doing a commander in chief should be doing rather than traveling around the money to raise money and campaign.
For four more years of what.
Yeah I think it would be good if he did a little bit right of what he's being paid to do congressman -- -- chairman of the armed services committee thanks so much.
Thank you very strong words.
