What sparked the recent violence was the erring on the Internet a very hateful very offensive video.
That that has offended many people around the world.
What happened in Ben Ghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest.
Until we have tracked down and brought to justice.
The terrorists who murdered four.
Homeland Security chair congressman Peter King is calling for UN ambassador Susan Rice to resign.
King says she needs to pay the consequences for misleading Americans about what happened in Libya.
Wasting no time Obama administration official and congressional Democrats are coming to -- defense saying.
She went on the Sunday talk shows and gave the quote best information and the best assessment that the administration had at the time.
After council spokesman Tony that -- had just released a statement saying life has done.
Extraordinary work at the United Nations and for the American people the president appreciates the work she does every day and he's looking forward to -- continued work.
Congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this congressman -- thank you so much for joining us today.
They -- what do you believe it ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in the -- When you -- that -- ambassador rice was deliberately misleading the American people or she's showed and demonstrated such a lack of knowledge of sophistication.
That you -- hole opposition anymore.
The entire administration -- and was wrong from the start.
The admission -- the American people must inform the world.
And she was -- spokeswoman she was our representative to the world.
And as opposed to exploiting what happened and virtually everything -- said was wrong.
And the administration is now trying to cover by say she was given the best information they had available to time.
The fact is they knew there was a lot of information they did not have they also knew that there was a large amount of a very weak circumstantial evidence showing this was a terrorist attack.
And yet she went on steady at that video was the -- of it when she knew.
That that was al-Qaeda.
-- region that she -- there have been terrorist attacks there in the past.
-- she had to have known that the tiger direct and indirect fire was so sophisticated that this wouldn't be carried out by some random mob.
What you should have said was we -- of all the evidence yet we do believe however there's a lot of evidence.
That terrorists were involved.
Or hold off a final decision instead he basically categorically rule out terrorist involvement and contributor all of that film which was absolutely wrong.
Was you know Fox News has confirmed that intelligence officials knew within 24 hours at the event and then Ghazi.
Was indeed a terrorist attack the question remains why -- ambassador rice insist five days after that attack.
That it was a spontaneous reaction to an obscure anti Muslim film.
Mission itself up to explain apple might believe is the administration want this story out because it if the word terrorist attack as -- was this would undermine the president's position.
That's somehow all -- -- have been decimated.
And implying that -- -- -- -- threat if we did have a terrorist attack which we did and former guns were killed including the ambassador.
-- that would undermine a large part of the president's foreign policy.
Position in this campaign running a lot of it was done for electoral politics to cover the president -- -- I try to go along this false narrative that he had -- didn't affect.
Defeating al-Qaeda -- -- And then -- the question if she was sticking to a -- scripted leads one to ask who is telling ambassador rice and for that matter White House spokesman Jay Carney.
To stick with those words using the -- spontaneous incident even -- senior officials knew it wasn't.
I -- we have to have an investigation and that's why I'm saying right now the person -- it was out there the person who's gonna get all the -- From -- all of the morning shows was the best -- -- so to send a clear message to the world.
And the American people what this will not be tolerated.
The best -- right should resign but also we should investigate and find out.
How Ohio this went I would hope the administration itself.
Would voluntarily come forward and say why they gave out this false information when they had to know there was so much else out there and yet they wanted to rule out terrorism from the stuff.
What -- the fact that despite reports the FBI was sending in agents have been -- that no one has been even to the site yet and that attack and that the area has been severely compromised.
Now the FBI there's a great job but the fact is that crime scene has been totally compromised it's been known to have week the FBI has not been able to get that.
And this whole idea of relying on the FBI.
Horseback to a pre 9/11 mentality.
We were treasonous crimes rather than acts of terrorism -- the FBI would do all what can do we really the FBI to tell us whether or not this was a terrorist attack.
The FBI could be helpful in tracking down maybe some of those involved.
But you're relying on the FBI this way -- -- is going back to a pre 9/11 mindset we show what that did on nine elevenths.
Sure get a so.
So are you saying that the president and his team simply don't want the public to know the truth that on nine elevenths.
I -- -- security at our conference was not tight enough and there may be an al-Qaeda linked to the attack and we didn't pay close enough attention to the growing -- at a time.
When the president's elections just weeks away is that what you're saying that this was all done for political purposes.
While it certainly appears away all of the -- fact -- it was a terrorist attack the fact is that the consulate did not receive the security you're supposed to.
Yet administration had to know how weekly is secured that they're console was -- had to know about the prior attacks and they had to know that on September 11 of all days we should have high alert that instead there was virtually no security at all and yet the American ambassador was.
-- with virtually no security and a compound itself.
Have no reinforcement no real security.
It was a tragedy waiting to happen and unfortunately it did happen on September 11 -- Indeed all right.
