Got some breaking news now because there are top Republican lawmakers pressing hard -- the Obama administration to release intelligence information.
About the console to attack in -- Gaza that killed four Americans including our ambassador Chris Stevens.
-- -- chairman of the House Intelligence Committee accusing the white house of politicized -- the intelligence to fit a certain story line.
That the violence was sparked by video this is Mike Rogers now listen I -- You the administration made some serious mistakes when they highlighted the video.
Escalated its credibility to the presidential level and then took it on TV in Pakistan with US taxpayer dollars.
That's all I think those were all serious mistakes that were paying the price war and it was because of that view of what they thought their intelligence.
At least what they wanted it to be not what -- wants.
Two critical things instead of battle to talk to New York congressman Peter King about it chairman of the Homeland Security -- -- good morning to you.
And welcome back -- one -- point they highlighted the video he -- Escalating the credibility on the presidential level.
What do you think of that.
I agree fully with chairman Rogers -- on these programs when you Mike is a great tournament.
He's right on this -- the fact is the president took something which really was -- it -- issue.
And -- elevated and give it credibility to deserve.
Somehow put us on defense we don't explain why this video was created here in the United States was absolutely wrong.
And it somehow though I guess -- -- the president's narrative that there's not really a threat from al-Qaeda is just a threat -- radicals -- who get excited about a video when he.
Goes on this is because of that view of what they thought their intelligence at least what they won it it to be.
Not what it was suggesting sort of a cherry picking of information.
You see it that.
Yeah yeah I.
I do and I think -- heard ambassador Bolton in in the last hour and pretty much saying the same thing.
The Obama administration has -- view of the world and what they do -- intentionally and not stand up selectively putting in facts that fit into that Arab.
The president's narrative is that al-Qaeda has been decimated and the war against terrorism has been won and how we can turn our attention to the Pacific.
So it went against everything that he was just saying to admit that this was a terror attack.
Because two things one that would have upset the narrative that are Qaeda is he went defeated -- decimated and secondly would raise questions about the lack of security at the consulate and -- -- Well you're looking it's and at least ten incidents of violence either in Ben Ghazi your Tripoli.
This year alone that's now been document.
And so part of this letter goes out this -- from -- ice and Jason -- its reading in part.
I says the attack to claim the ambassador's wife was the latest a long line of attacks on.
Western diplomats and officials and -- in the months leading up to September 112012.
It was clearly never as administration officials once insisted the result of a popular protests and now they are demanding more information.
From Hillary Clinton and others.
-- does that go and when.
-- -- -- I think there should be definitely investigation Gresham investigation.
Also I think this should be an independent investigation.
Outside experts to -- And analyze what happened to you why was this intelligence so miss -- why was it's so distorted why did the administration ignore these warning signals over the last several months and we -- attacked from the American Consulate.
We attacks in the British ambassador we attacks in the Red Cross the big -- he is known to be.
A haven for the groups like -- South Korea broke Qaeda in the Maghreb.
-- should jihadist militias generally.
-- that area such a dangerous area and yet virtually nothing was done as far as securing the compound there.
The -- was traveling with minimal security.
And then when the event did occur.
Administration went on for more than a week to week denying that it was a yet the terrorist attack so.
Again the general Hayden yesterday and -- from a timeline I agree with that also.
You know Wendell what do they know when -- they know it and what was so much Susan Rice saying why did you say what you did widened Jake Connie continues they what he did.
Well what what's critical about that time line and -- the Susan Rice in a moment here it is knowing when the intelligence committee.
Thought it was not the video in the end but or some sort of spontaneous protest.
But actually was a terrorist hit and that when you wanna do is you -- -- take that moment and align it with the information that Susan Rice was -- And did that happen before or after.
The five networks news shows on Sunday but that that was what general Hayden was suggesting -- our program yesterday.
It is that to -- you referring them.
Yeah I'm referring to that and also.
Even -- park -- houses community we Mike Rogers he was television.
Thursday and Friday two and three days after the attacks.
Giving all reasons why he'd go to wars a terrorist attack the direct and indirect fire the amount of troops -- you'll forces where.
Arrayed against our consulate and the and the -- the fact that it was September 11 the fact that prior incidents ms.
Susan Rice had to be aware of that -- the dangers that take -- that was and that by the there you have it what if you haven't called -- her resignation had.
If -- have either identical Susan -- resignation because she is she was the face that was put out.
By the administration to defend his policies he's our best -- the UN which many human cases make certain effect.
Our best in the world she was put out there has to be accountability.
When such a grievous grievous.
-- has been made as was in this case and whether or not she was just put out -- -- addition to be secretary of state.
Whether or not she believed what she was saying whether or not.
She was mistaken somebody has to pay the price that's -- consequences -- when I was out there I believe it should be our first Smart very able person.
But again that's such a serious error has to -- accountability by heavy charges there we'll see where it goes Peter King thank you for your time.
