It's being called Ben -- -- by some lawmakers who are now demanding more answers from the administration.
About the deadly consulate attack in Libya.
After so many mixed messages.
This was not a pre planned premeditated.
Attack what happened -- -- -- was in fact initially a spontaneous.
Reaction what our assessment is as of the present.
Is in fact what it -- began spontaneously.
In Ben Ghazi.
As a reaction to what it transpired some hours earlier in Cairo.
That of course.
Five days after the deadly attack.
New York Republican congressman Peter King says.
He thinks ambassador I should resign he joins us live this morning from Long Island good to see congressman.
David -- review you often hear don't shoot the messenger why should she resign.
If personal Susan Rice is very capable very intelligent hard working the fact is that she was the spokeswoman she was the F.
She was a -- of the United States in the world.
And she had to known that when they issues asked to do this or she and general probably asked to -- what went out.
And spread a message which -- had to know was a false narrative.
I'm not saying -- about or -- details of fronts she was on that television national television five days after the attacks.
Barely mentioned terrorism at all when all the circumstantial evidence at least.
At least -- circumstantial evidence pointed toward terrorism it was 9/11.
We know that I'm Tauscher is very -- that area or Qaeda in the Maghreb is very powerful or that area we knew there was direct and indirect fire very coordinated type of attack.
Which wouldn't be done by ordinary.
Demonstrators knew -- in recent terrorist attacks in that area we also know.
That there's a lack of fortification at that consort and yet -- clear impression she was sent out to deliver what she did.
Was that this was not a terrorist attack.
Because that would have disrupted the Obama narrative that he does defeated al-Qaeda and that our -- investment add to that point do you feel this is about.
A narrative in general around the world with how the Obama administration is handling that war on terror and how high do you think this one rises.
And the administration.
Gave -- It -- I don't know what other conclusion we can draw and I can read people's minds.
But the fact is that they were so adamant in not just.
As Susan Rice to.
I can only think that who's done to protect the -- Obama campaign message.
And had to go very high and I the only investigation.
Can show how high it goes.
But it's hard for me to believe that the president -- who -- it.
Again said that we -- always wait before we come out with conclusions -- 5678.
His top people were still saying that this was not a terrorist attack I don't believe they would have said that but I can sign off from him but again I think -- an investigation would show that conclusively.
It's one thing for our ambassador to the UN to go out with the message that the administration delivered her it's another thing entirely.
For our Director of National Intelligence.
James clapper to come out on Friday.
And essentially take the blame for all this if she should resign what about James clapper.
I have a lot of regard for general proper and we have to see exactly what happened in the whole aftermath of this but I agree with you.
It appears the general -- was asked to -- his grenade -- because.
The fact is.
Why didn't hit it that there was just a very much of Egg Harbor statement was put out that even when we take a hit.
The fact is that general prop them -- to see what he told.
Again the top people at the time he behaves given the exact facts they knew them.
As far as I was interpretations was that done by him more by the administration I think we have to go to his statement very carefully.
I'm more concerned -- general clapper is saying now it appears as he he's been brought in to clean this up.
To take -- from self run the administration I want to see whether or not he gave them you know what exactly what information you gave them those first several days.
Did -- rule out terrorism be sent -- Susan Rice did I dropped out but again I think all this SB investigators.
That -- that you see how long this takes because we know the Senate Foreign Relations Committee sent a letter of the administration.
No answers until after the election I think the American people deserve some.
In the next 37 days New York congressman Peter King -- -- -- -- -- --
