And tied the White House is -- in -- scandal as there -- shocking new evidence proving that you the American people will lied to by the president by the secretary of state.
And other senior members of the Obama administration now Fox's -- in fact confirmed that within 24 hours of the assault on the Ben -- consulate.
The Obama administration in fact -- with certainty.
That this was indeed a terrorist attack.
Now two sources also tell fox that US intelligence officials.
Or even aware that the assault was coordinated by al-Qaeda affiliated operatives again all of this was verified on September the twelfth.
Less than a day after ambassador Stephens to Navy SEALs and one other American were assassinated.
A rather than tell the truth and acknowledge that the al-Qaeda link existed in admit that the president's.
Triumph and killing of bin Laden was by no means marking the end of international terrorism.
Members of the administration chose to lie and initiate what appears to be a widespread cover up about what they knew and when they knew it.
Now it's obvious they want us all to think that al-Qaeda is no longer work clear threat to America.
And so what do they do they blame the so called spent -- a spontaneous event on the YouTube trailer.
Now let's take a look back -- the campaign of misinformation that was waged an all the days following this attack.
We've seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful.
Internet video this is under investigation.
Around the region has been in response to this video we were not aware of any.
Actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the US mission in Ben -- -- Planned or imminent.
It began spontaneously.
In Ben Ghazi.
It was a spontaneous.
Reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo.
It as a consequence of the video.
Now that was -- lie that was this story for an entire week also tonight we have learned that the filmmaker has reportedly been arrested but for what.
According to reports authorities are claiming that he violated his parole for quote.
Accessing the Internet without proper authorization.
That sounds pretty fishy to me yet the first -- up in their narrative came when a non political intelligence some point he actually had courage and he said that's.
I would say yes they were killed in the course of -- terrorist attack on our embassy.
Now again that was the first time that the words terrorist attack were actually uttered by a government official and it came a week after they had a ready confirmed Al qaeda's involvement.
And it was that statement that box the White House into a bit of a corner now the next day.
Jay Carney reluctantly had to say that's.
-- OK so market down September the twentieth was a day that every -- got on the same page and finally acknowledge what we all -- to be true that this was not about a YouTube video or movie trailer.
Well not exactly the confusion the lies from the White House they continued.
We don't know -- and so we're gonna continue to investigate this what.
Happened in Ben Ghazi was a terrorist attack that I've heard -- Hillary Clinton say that it was an act of terrorism is -- what -- -- -- Well we're still doing an investigation.
As a crude and disgusting video.
Sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world who was neighbors there.
Now we first began our investigation right here on the this program -- these so called mixed messages I said they were the result of one of three things stupidity of cover up or just bad intelligence.
Well now the Fox News has in fact confirmed that the intelligence community they got it right on day one of this investigation.
Well that -- two other options that's either stupidity or cover up.
Neither of which should be acceptable to the American people they deserve the truth and some of the families of these four dead Americans now joining me in studio.
With reaction to today's developments the former mayor the city New York.
New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani Tories are good to see national how we -- so this is what we now know our intelligence knew they did their job they even -- where came from.
Makes sense anniversary of 9/11 the film came out.
In July none of this makes sense they had rocket propelled -- grenades and and mortars and even the president -- -- up.
Why would this administration.
Cover up for the death of Americans.
Well I think it's because they have this narrative that they defeated al-Qaeda and al-Qaeda was no longer really big threat.
They never say the words Islamic fundamentalist terrorism and -- and they want to wish it away.
The president was moving on to Asia he was going to declare this a great victory from -- And unfortunately this terrible act of terror intervened in -- very convenient narratives and what they chose to do is is that this is -- stupidity Sean I said this.
-- -- while back and I got -- heavily attacked for.
The I spent a lot of time investigating cover -- and conspiracies.
Does a cover up.
You know the deliberate attempt to cover up the truth from an administration that claimed the wanna be the most transparent in history and it's the worst kind of cover.
Cover of that involves a national security to cover up that involves the slaughter of four Americans.
And maybe if they had been straightforward about this from the very beginning maybe they can to quell some of these demonstrations that took place afterwards that also did a tremendous amount of them -- What -- not only covering them -- themselves and their competence what personal the first question is why didn't they have beefed up security on the anniversary of 9/11.
But they're also they're covering up for al-Qaeda.
And especially now knowing that our intelligence knew within 24 hours why would they cover up for them push really hard to take them.
-- victory lap they were taking about bin Laden if something like this happens or something like this happens.
And you have this kind of just destruction that's not -- have the number of protest to jab and I think it interferes with -- political narrative look.
Right now we don't have a president we have a candidate.
-- -- don't have a president really ashamed the world is in turmoil.
The Middle East is erupting.
Every night I watch what I watch on television I see the failure of Obama's policies in the -- the Middle East his naive approach to Islamic.
Extremist terrorism that many of us have been warning about.
For a very very long time so this terrible act of terror of murder.
And the reality is it destroys their entire narrative it -- And -- needs -- be under the -- was this was what did the president know when did he know it.
You know that let me give me an example because I thought I was actually embarrassed with the president's speech at the United Nations it was embarrassing to this country.
I mean all he did was go back to condemning condemning condemning a movie trailer that is the most avid editors -- absolutely pathetic that it's pathetic.
And here's Benjamin Netanyahu today with moral clarity certainty and understanding of what is at stake in the world.
I want to show you the two of them side by side and show because this is an interest in what's this.
I think the relevant question is there's.
It's not whether this fanaticism will be defeated.
It's how many lives will be lost before it's defeated I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do -- this video.
And I believe it's message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity when it comes to the survival of my country.
It's not only my right to speak.
It's my duty to speak true democracy real for -- it's hard work.
Those in power have to resist the temptation to crack down on dissidents there's only one way.
To peacefully prevent Iran.
From getting atomic bombs.
And that's by placing.
A clear red -- On Iran's nuclear weapons program America wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy.
And we believe that there is still time and space to do so a red line should be -- Right here.
Before we -- completes -- second stage of nuclear enrichment.
Necessary to make a -- -- the United States president.
Pandering to radical islamists.
Saying please like us please we're not responsible and then there's the prime minister of Israel telling them.
If you continue you will be defeated that's America's role -- that's an American president should be doing that.
Put politics aside it's actually frightening the president United States still thinks there's room for diplomacy.
Where's -- living on Morris.
They don't want to negotiate with them.
There's been four years of this man pathetically trying to negotiate -- -- -- was gonna negotiate without preconditions.
Ahmadinejad wouldn't even negotiate with them without preconditions he wants it negotiate with the I -- told -- -- -- -- -- -- negotiate with.
I have a message for the president Mr.
President they don't wanna negotiate with -- they want to build.
And atomic weapon and 21 got to have written and then it's that -- -- wake up.
Well into the this president who is he pandering to by saying please we're really not responsible.
-- he's paid because we always make a distinction.
Muslims the radical Islamist.
He's not pandering to you know moderate Muslims he's pandering to radical Islamic.
He's also losing a wonderful opportunity to explain America to the rest of the world.
From the point of view of a lot of these people they don't understand the reality is we -- free speech in this country.
-- there is a government the government has no responsibility.
For what some person is gonna say about Jesus is gonna say about Mary or is gonna say about.
My -- listen to this because this is important you don't -- it right in it to the the two president -- -- comments -- from the Muslim Brotherhood they pushed out Mubarak they kept the peace with Israel for thirty years far from perfect.
But here's the Egyptian president warning the world of the UN that he will not allow this is a guy we -- two billion taxpayer dollars a year.
Warning that they will he will not allow insults to the prophet.
The incidents models has only prophet of Islam Mohamed.
He's reject we reject this we cannot except I had an -- -- do and we will let.
The local -- of those who do this we will not allow anyone.
Republicans out there to do this by wedge it would eat we will not and it allow anyone to do this by word or -- -- his speeches his speech is actually outrageous his demands on us when we're giving him two billion dollars a year.
His demands on us when this man wants one of the worst terrorist released.
-- cut off funding the but.
I would cut off I would cut back funding I'd make a big forward in the in the future.
Wouldn't care -- Russia took care rumor child let them take care of -- mean the reality is this man wants to blind -- released from prison the blind Sheikh was behind.
The attack on my city in 191993.
Blind Sheikh was convicted of trying to destroy my city in 19959096.
The blind -- put a fat or I don't want my best friends.
The brave -- put him in jail for a hundred years.
If this man wants to blind Sheikh.
President Obama can answer his question about whether Egypt is an enemy or an ally.
And it's pretty clear where where each of -- going and this is because of the unrealistic way in which he tossed Mubarak out without any thought for what.
What is there with.
With objections from Saudi Arabia objections from cutter objections from the Middle East are genius presidents decided we could get rid of Mubarak this is tantamount.
To basically what Jimmy Carter did to Iran -- mr.
mayor good thank you thank you so much for.
