Fox News alert -- now to the breaking news on the terrorist attack at our US consulate in Libya we just got some information in.
And reporting to you a moment ago that Fox News is confirmed now FBI agents have arrived in Ben Ghazi.
Three weeks after the murder of four Americans there.
Now that the FBI has finally arrived at the scene what more.
Will we soon know about the attack.
And what additional elements does this add to the story and now Fox News -- national security.
Analyst KT McFarland so I mean just for the viewers understand what.
You know we've been told by the administration.
For weeks now that the State Department can't tell us anything and the DOJ is not gonna tell -- -- because the FBI's investigating but the FBI leader came out.
Pending -- stepped foot in Libya because it was too dangerous runner and then everybody said what if it's if it's that dangerous.
And why did we had an ambassador sitting there like a sitting ducks of this is the controversy.
As it's been laid out by those watching the situation they are they are now where's the story go from here.
Here's what happens -- three failures and it's going to be one or all of the above it's going to be an intelligence failure they're gonna find out.
That in fact we didn't know that there was going to be a problem in that part of Libya.
That's a big in major intelligence value we never -- the Arab Spring coming we didn't see this coming.
This thing that might be wrong is that if we didn't now what was the security.
Apartment building in New York City have more security September 11 and that ambassador had.
So what what went wrong why with intelligence not recognized and acted upon and then a third thing is has just been a major failure policy.
Now what I think is likely to happen because I was in the White House during Watergate and I saw in the Nixon administration how this all falls out.
The White House is trying to blame everybody remember they were blaming and then leave and they were blaming -- well -- intelligence community I think they're not gonna start blaming the State Department.
Bureaucrats the career diplomats a career intelligence officers are gonna start leaking that's why you're seeing.
All of these little cables that are coming out every day there's a little bit more -- Her -- wanna add to that -- -- and correct myself and I did the information -- David State Department officer reportedly told.
Folks on Capitol Hill there have been thirteen threats made against that -- -- during the six months before the attack on the facility thirteen -- I think was at thirteen attacks for which is.
Yeah so that's what exactly is what's happening because the -- -- -- they know people on Capitol Hill I know people in the media.
And they are gonna start getting their story out because they don't want to be -- -- if they feel they were doing their job.
Somebody else now the question is uncertain what happened in Watergate it's -- the crime.
It's the cover up is the White House -- to -- this.
Last night's debate went to just -- -- the political angle of this last night's debate was about domestic policy but at the town hall debate they're gonna have next week it's lit domestic and foreign.
And then last debate in Boca Raton Florida on the 22 and October is all foreign policy.
Today we have breaking news in Syria.
Where you know they still have a civil war going on there and now they say 30000 Syrians have been killed in the context of the civil war and they inadvertently they say -- some folks over neighboring Turkey.
And now Turkey is weighing in.
Authorizing military operations against Syria they say they're not declaring war.
But -- gonna get it's.
You know what has coming after some Turkish citizens died KT.
The situation Middle East very dangerous right now.
All over and Italy's center and the seriously has three problems I called the three ours there are refugees that are leading -- -- all those neighboring country's east say the gains.
-- destabilizing those countries potentially these are not wealthy countries that can absorb refugees -- the rebels the rebels are having safe havens in Turkey.
That's why the bombing -- that's why.
The Syrian army and -- an accident wasn't an accident they were going after the rebels -- were setting up shop in Turkey and then Turkey retaliated.
And as you just -- that whole region as a cauldron.
You know -- the rhetoric is really ramp up it's -- run.
Israel Syria everybody's talking more -- and big situations getting much reduced to one -- -- Mean in advance of these next two debates and the vice president -- the debate next week is -- -- a major foreign policy speech I think on Monday that this upcoming week.
And as you look at the situation KT -- mean Syria went off the front pages once we got deep into this presidential election in the mess and Libya.
But this is a cauldron I mean this 30000 people dead we have not gotten involved children being tortured and murdered -- is this thing bubbling back up now that we're seeing.
It can't -- -- with turn public gonna get even worse and it never try to make rice and a microwave where all of a sudden it blows up inside the microwave that's Syria.
What's happening in serious bad but what happens is worse when it starts affecting Lebanon Jordan Iraq the whole region.
Could become much more destabilized.
KT McFarland thank you thank you.
