And this is a Fox News alert intelligence sources have in fact confirmed exclusively to Fox News that 100 men took part in what they -- calling.
A coordinated assault on the US consulate in -- -- last week in addition.
The sources say the terrorist strike that took the lives of four Americans was carried out with precision.
In two separate ways.
Now the terrorists were heavily armed and not only rocket propelled grenades -- mortars as well.
And also -- today and a warn you this footage is very -- We can now show you for the first time on this show ambassador Chris Stephen's body being found by looters and later dragged through the streets of -- Ghazi.
Following the shoot out -- the storming of our consulate there.
And what you're seeing a still photo captured of that horrific moment.
They can also make out that this photo has a bloody gash right there you can see it on Stephen's head.
-- light of these breaking developments about the coordinated nature of the attack and now seeing the reality of what our ambassador went through would have becoming more more clear.
That this White House was misleading you the American people in the wake of this tragedy now they first denied that it was a terror attack.
Now they say it was an obvious terror attack we have our president dodging questions yesterday about the lack of security at the consulate.
-- -- UN ambassador has been caught on camera blatantly lying about what caused the incident.
Now with each and every passing day it's becoming more more clear.
That the only way the president knows how to defend his pathetic record and his actions is to distort the truth and deceive you the American people alive.
Four Americans are dead.
Now the president is more interest hitting covering up the facts in this case to save his political career.
And coming clean about the circumstances of this horrific terrorist event committed.
By an al-Qaeda offshoot and that directly contradicts what he promised all of you in the early days of his of minute.
-- -- Police say -- simply as I can't.
And the rule of law will be the touch -- of this presidency I won't stop fighting to open up government.
Now this is hard you know because we don't control what would break.
But I can tell you we have put in place the toughest ethics -- -- toughest transparency rules of any administration in history in -- desperate.
Now correction Mr.
President what we have right now is the least transparent the least accountable White House in American history.
-- -- like to say let me be clear.
This is far from the first cover -- scandal to hit your administration.
From Solyndra to the national security leaks.
To the -- state job offer remember those the list of embarrassment goes on and on and and the very top of it.
Is operation fast and furious another failure that cost brave Americans their lives.
But -- President Obama take responsibility for this reckless program of course not.
He doesn't want that on his record instead what does he do again Eli is pointing the finger of blame.
Who else when all else fails blame George W.
Well first of all.
I think it's important for us understand that the fast and furious program was -- field initiated program.
Begun under the previous administration.
At -- is -- -- and now it's time for somebody to start telling the truth in the Oval Office here with reaction to the ongoing cover up that's going on and Ben -- a much more.
Former speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich and mr.
-- a welcome back.
-- to -- with you the ambassadors body dragged through the streets here's the most the -- -- this this is the most infuriating thing to me.
This is the anniversary of nine elevenths -- we -- beef up security the president and no answer and Univision last night.
We have these attacks on our embassy all this is about -- eight -- we trailer that was released in July movie trailer then they come out finally after two weeks of pressure they admit.
-- he had it self evident that yet this was a terror attack and the president goes on Univision says no this was related to the movie.
They can't get it straight do you think they're lying -- what I mean yes I do -- -- I think.
The president and states.
Lied to the American people but I think you may be aligned himself.
I think this president is so totally one sided -- view of Islam is so misinformed.
He is so willfully ignorant.
If you look at his Cairo speech which was filled with factual errors.
The fact is this is a president who simply cannot face reality when it comes to people want to kill us.
While when I see barbarians.
Torturing and dragging an American ambassador.
I found those scenes.
And I think every American should be -- -- and I don't want to commander and chief apologizing.
And talking about some stupid movie.
Has the right to be a free country America stands for freedom.
We should be standing up around the world telling these people we're not gonna give -- -- and we are prepared to meet your violence with whatever effort it takes.
And since these people are on film.
We should hunt every one of them down.
Well I want to know mr.
speaker I would really like to know.
When what does the president got to do about it -- that we're spending 70000.
Dollars on an ad -- -- this in a minute.
7000 miles on an ad in Pakistan that shows our secretary of state our president apologizing.
For the film that is going to be we -- We we are spending 70000.
Dollars -- that's in the second -- On now -- they're saying all of these things about about this movie and it's disgusting and it's despicable we disagree with it.
Well next week in New York the Audrey Serrano picture of a crucifix submerged in his urine is coming back.
By the way some taxpayer money when -- award an award to this guy.
And I'm wondering are they gonna speak out so passionately against a crucifix in urine I doubt -- -- -- You have a you know and left wing establishment.
Which things said to being anti Christian.
And pro Muslim is totally appropriate.
I'm tired of being lectured that I should accept Christ being immersed in -- and or a statue of Mary being smeared with -- elephant -- that we should put them in public museums -- -- expense.
-- that we should recognize this is art and then and so I'm not -- -- -- -- makes a stupid movie with no public funding no public support.
Suddenly were apologizing around the world and suggesting censorship of Americans on behalf of Islam.
This is a totally one sided view by our -- at least not just the president not just a secretary of state.
But all sorts of people in the news media some -- -- home wrote strong columns attacking those of us who were offended by.
Immersing Christ in urine and are now writing strong column suggesting that we should be censoring.
People who -- any way offensive to Islam might I think it's totally one -- betrayal of western -- -- as people watch this -- that our State Department taxpayer dollars are being spent in Pakistan.
And by the way as the world continues to burn tonight.
All over the Muslim world anti American protest embassies being attacked flags being burned.
Chanting death to America happening all over the world so all this Muslim quote outreach.
Has has brought no goodwill towards the United States but here's the United States president the United States secretary of state.
This is the -- -- using our money to run in Pakistan to try and appeal to Islamist radicals that are protesting against us.
-- -- found it from the United States donation -- respects all faiths.
All efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.
But there is -- -- no justification to this type of senseless violence.
Let me state very clearly and I hope it is obvious.
That the United States government had absolutely.
Nothing to do with this video.
-- -- its contents.
America's commitments to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.
They they just say this next week about Catholics.
When the crucifixion Christians when the crucifix -- -- there is gonna show up.
Look I I wish they would have shown but does this is -- administration waging war on the Catholic Church.
I suspect cardinal -- of New York would be thrilled if President Obama applied the same ground rule to Catholics.
But he's applying the Muslims.
We'd love to have the Obama administration respect catholicism.
Respect Judaism respect.
Protestantism but what are we get we get attacks against the values of people in America who are Christian.
By a president who then uses our tax money to apologize.
To people who are burning our flag storm and our embassies and as we just saw.
Killing the American ambassador torturing him apparently.
According to one report.
I want a president who stands up for America.
And who lectures the world about American values.
One of which is free speech I don't want a president who apologizes.
To those who -- killing Americans.
Let me show you this other and they came out by a group let freedom ring.
And it shows.
The new president former Muslim Brotherhood had more say.
And what he has what we have captured him saying now this comes on the heels of this very week.
Hillary lob it lobbying for more than the two billion.
Dollars that we're sending the egyptians in aid.
There's a startling add that that they put out watch this.
There's a Muslim Brotherhood rallied for their new Egyptian president Mohamed -- yeah.
They want to conquer Israel and we -- long severed ties with you -- on.
-- country building nuclear when things just -- -- the Israeli people dead.
-- -- -- The Muslim Brotherhood its top leaders and even running about 1018 -- America.
You invited the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House legitimizing the group.
That wants to undermine America and -- -- Israel.
You seem to -- one point five billion of tax -- don't lose yeah.
Why -- mr.
I mean there's the president of Egypt saying our capitals not going to be Cairo Mecca Medina HLB Jerusalem follow willing.
Our cry shall be millions of -- martyrs and marched towards Jerusalem.
You know destroying the western civilization from within.
And and Hillary Clinton administration lobbying for money this area has a simple.
But the answer simple house Republicans should clearly indicate we're going to suspend all aid to Egypt.
Not a penny.
Until we have a very different attitude and the Egyptian government.
-- you who have already had the Egyptian prime minister saying that we should be censoring people in America or expect more riots why would we send them money.
To subsidize their hostility to us.
Yeah especially in light of what their motto is -- we're gonna take a break we'll come back.
And we'll continue with former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich is -- continues.
