-- that was Bob Beckel Timbuktu to prop up Greg Gutfeld is going to be better his back -- bother him but he'll be back and since public -- Greg -- I hate is that terror attack in -- becoming a political scandal for the white house on FOX News Sunday.
Chris Wallace pressed former white house press secretary Robert Gibbs about it listen.
I -- ambassador rice -- the American people that information.
Well I think he's you heard ambassador rice say the best information that we had at the point in which he gave that answer.
Is the answer that she gave use all the White House say that this was terror attack and and nobody wants to get.
To the bottom of this more than the president and the secretary of state.
So that we can.
Protect our missions -- our consulates throughout the world and remaining -- absolutely no one intentionally or unintentionally misled.
Anybody involved in this absolutely not.
We standard among many who disagree listen -- he wrote.
He writes quote for more than a week the Obama administration misled the country about what happened this isn't just a problem.
It is a scandal.
-- how do you read.
-- As a former -- spokesperson I think I would have refused to got on the -- -- on this past weekend because there's.
As a former person you don't know what you don't now.
There was misleading whether it was intentional or not.
Something happened where the administration for ten days said one thing and it turns out to be the other and they tried to blow that off.
The other thing as.
I wonder where the Director of National Intelligence that is where is the National Security Council -- -- -- -- handle what can there be.
Quoted in the New York Times when they're taking victory laps but the name won't come on to talk about what they know what and what they did not know which is more important question.
And what they're doing -- trying to find out.
Find out about as I would have refused to got to go on.
-- you know on top of that -- senator -- -- hard is that -- probably the most hard how hard right to left guy in this and it says asked to do -- -- he says it looks like it was democratic congressman Adam Smith of the House Intelligence Committee says this was not just a mob that got -- -- and right so the Democrats don't even by the storyline and it's the biggest story today -- -- was on 9/11 I -- his storyline -- it's it's it's all politics are coming up for three things number one President Obama went to -- picked up the check that we talked about earlier.
In just hours after ambassador September 12 -- to hours after number 100.
It's clear that it's -- it.
You know it's been reported even in our president of Libya said it's a pre planned attack and it's not because of 9/11 9/11 symbolic.
The pre planned attack it was a retaliation from.
All these victory laps of the Obama administration has done over bin laps we killed a lot of we killed in -- of this -- -- is alive -- -- just the problem is we don't -- -- -- on it and number three.
-- and failure of information leading up to that.
To to the -- -- They should this be headlines screaming stand I Davis Stephen Hayes is is outrageous and everybody knew it and we had to sit there and act like -- when Steve -- sitting in the -- -- -- -- that's ridiculous never whoever's he's been writing about it.
It's very obvious and -- and -- common sense.
Or intelligence about.
How these things go down in the Middle East that this was something that was planned and coordinated nineteenth sitting around -- -- like.
-- -- right out of the underwear bomber we remember he was about to -- in Michigan and it was it was an isolated extremist it turns out -- trained by al-Qaeda there was a plan in place the Fort Hood shooter at the workplace violence.
We find out that he was right -- Lackey has a radio correspondents.
Bob President Bush to -- -- -- straight years let us know this is more than a generation of a war.
On terror is not going to be over an eight years -- twelve years why is the administration afraid of this war.
Brothers and launch it that much of the vacuum but today this happened I said that this was a terrorist I watched you did say that and it was very clear to me it was a terrorist attack based on just the the obvious I think in my own experience -- -- -- but.
Leaving that aside it's I don't think this is a scandal I think it's endless the way it played out politically I -- I would never have let -- -- -- say these things until I Norris.
Not if it's so obvious and you know it then why did the administration.
Clue as dot com have no I try and light everybody -- -- that there's a difference I don't think that they -- I think they did you know it was so obvious no no I wish I thought it was -- so yes you all they added that they also -- an -- are delighted to have the authentic.
Cause what they did was she stepped out without having the intelligence she -- that she should have done it and at the minimum but that should have said was it good -- -- it could not that we don't know the -- really trying to say -- you trying to say the ambassador rice.
Wrote her own script -- I don't know -- at all but just.
Clearly told by I liked the ideas of -- of this is what I -- say I did that from a political standpoint that is we have promised Bob prior to her saying that we have the interim president.
I can murmurs named it that the Libyan interim president saying it was -- plant right can't let her any interviews such -- that.
They can months and while it's obvious that you're constantly self evident that was pretty good but -- would room we all figured out this himself planned there's no what you could take into court -- -- Just did the party line would not your walk steal it back on somebody sent a -- -- -- Bob I figure is confuses Wheeler so do you bring us inside the of an administration wide is it to their benefit to be so confused.
Well it certainly helped them with the press.
Because -- -- -- -- on the front page of every I don't see it it's not constant -- talk about everything else and President Obama gets to be on the view that -- is still alive today C number -- is reporting it well and at the at CBS hasn't been reported so as Reuters.
On this and I don't think they should let up I don't think they well the fact should just take us where they take us and the politics set it aside.
If they really believe that that that people are gonna vote on this and they're gonna vote on the economy which president would be better at Romney or -- -- Obama.
Fine then let's just be honest about what happened but I think I covered that the night climate change and green -- -- I I area he has heart and -- Probably they want to win again they want to keep the White House and it really there -- I'd like -- yell on the part of the State Department is the first tentatively filled in the on camera you actually yelling yeah I think that I.
Yeah she's giving -- a -- -- -- you don't -- it.
You know down to -- single when he said -- Saturday -- the -- -- the --
