-- Bloomberg thank you very much.
Now for weeks we've been saying the White House has been lying to you the American people about what information that they had about the attack in -- -- -- killed four Americans tonight.
There is more proof that this was all part of an elaborate cover up by the administration now according to the Daily Beast.
Who reportedly spoke with three intelligence officials American intelligence agencies they know within 24 hours that al-Qaeda affiliates were in fact involved in this attack.
And finally Hillary Clinton admits al-Qaeda -- was involved in the attack that killed four Americans.
Now that is what she said earlier today at a UN meeting.
For some time al-Qaeda in the Islamic -- grab and other groups.
Have launched attacks and kidnappings from northern Mali in two neighboring countries.
Now with say larger safe haven and increased freedom to maneuver.
Terrorists are seeking to extend their reach and their networks in multiple directions.
And they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions under -- in North Africa.
As we tragically saw in Ben Ghazi.
-- joining me now -- reaction former presidential candidate co-founder of job creation solutions dot com Herman Cain is back with us.
She was saying Susan Rice was saying Jay Carney was saying everybody was saying this is spontaneous.
This trailer was released in -- this was all on the anniversary of 9/11.
They had mortars they had rocket propelled grenades but it was spontaneous.
And the president still yesterday on the view didn't say.
Well maybe terrorism -- to never said -- definitively.
Failure of leadership.
That fact that the president -- intelligence briefings the fact that his administration.
Had multiple stories different stories come from different corners of the administration shoals that the president was not in -- east.
All of leading on this issue -- And now they'll finally admitting that he was planned coordinated and thought terrorist attack.
Now all of a sudden they are they are finally coming out it's -- it up failure of leadership.
Period well end up.
But it but you know something that there's also -- I was bringing -- -- Bob Woodward.
In this country has sold out the American people and then again when that there are no Woodward Bernstein -- here.
And that is you know could you imagine if George Bush for dead Americans to the Navy SEALs one ambassador just a -- but around talks about her.
This is a guy who ran and said -- and Cuba Venezuela those countries are tiny then -- threat and now is saying -- only noise that the Israelis are making about the Iranians getting nuclear weapons.
No saying that -- gonna wipe Israel off the map what would happen if George Bush said that.
-- they would be all over they would be calling for his resignation -- -- called him to be impeached and you and I know bad but this is this I've never seen.
-- on the part of the mainstream lame stream media issue like we are seeing now that I've never seen like this in a time before.
And it's all this is just downright Obama is laughing his head off our Obama knows he -- regulating all of these guys that absolutely whoever says -- -- -- They and their focus on the insignificant superfluous.
Arguments but they won't go over his record on the economy and here's the other thing.
He will change his story dependent upon who he's talking to.
You pointed out at the beginning of this show how he has failed on all the promises that he -- it he criticized George Bush.
For what happened in his administration relative to the deficit and now is even worse and Obama.
And that other thing that the mainstream media allows President Obama to give away -- -- is double talk.
And -- -- -- -- dishonest I tell you how bad they are in his pocket in terms of trying to help him get reelected you debated Mitt Romney you've been on the stage -- them he will share a stage one week from tonight with the anointed one with the president.
-- and so my question is how do you think he'll do and what advice would you have for -- -- my advice would be presidential.
The -- it be appropriately aggressive in terms of cop out.
Countering the false narrative that's being run against him and explain to the American people what you would do I keep it that simple.
I would keep it that simple and I would do one other thing.
I happen to believe because -- -- it spent on the debate the state to debate Mitt Romney and others here's what governor Romney will clearly show.
His depth of knowledge and understanding of the issues is going to be is cleared.
As night and day.
And that's not a coded racial slur on anything like that you know how to -- off -- you can only say Chicago that is now -- -- Official racist terrible economy -- racial -- look.
You look people -- the on the C.
And how quick and how logical governor Romney is spending make -- President Obama.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Obama is simply going to be using rhetoric.
And -- -- follow words in order to track.
And it didn't dance around the real issues and admit some of the things if the moderate as do that job if that's a big -- OK good to see if has always been coming up.
