But you wonder in this one why -- the Obama administration just.
Tell us the truth.
They knew within 24 hours that the -- attack.
And four murders of Americans -- -- number ambassador was tied to terrorists not to a YouTube video that was the cover story.
But congress is now investigating and Republican congressman Jason -- has just got back from Libya he joins us nice to see you thanks credit I your thoughts after game back from -- thoughts about being -- Libya.
I left with the impression that politics was striving -- security decisions rather than security dictating what security should be and and they wanted narrative that they were moving towards normalization the appearance of normalization as swiftly as possible but that's unfortunately.
I think led to the idea that we didn't have the security in place to protect our our assets and -- He and there's another.
Part of and it's part of investigations coming -- hearing this week Adam and in this in the bill -- article -- it's been here on the record he's been right about national security for -- for years.
And he quoted an unnamed official I -- says unnamed.
That the Obama administration is afraid to admit al-Qaeda is running rampant throughout the region.
Because of it exposes truths instead of what president Obama's -- -- -- During the Democratic Convention said the official is to quote from the article and of course I -- that -- -- -- about what people do for political reasons however.
I thought that this is there any possible to access.
Hi I wouldn't disagree with that at all I mean I -- left with the impression that.
They were driven to try to create this appearance of normalization he got to remember twice already know but.
The idea that there are bad guys out there -- want to kill us and we didn't let security dictates his security.
Remember in Ben -- you go to Tripoli about two hours to the east is is Ben Ghazi.
Twice in the six month lead up to this attack and death of the four Americans twice the British ambassador had in the -- assassination attempt.
And twice our facility -- -- he was bombed no other place in the planet had been dead to have that.
I can but there are two things a community gross incompetence which we know -- has cost the lives of four people mean is this -- a lot of warning signs for the and they ignore it.
-- or it could be that did they have that there are trying to cover up a failed middle east policy with terrorism growing.
And that there's some deceitful or sinister reason.
I was there all day or that it was an act ours is just an -- prevent -- incident I should -- the go -- I spent most all the day on Saturday first member congress to go into Tripoli.
-- with that met with a whole host of people never once not one time.
Did a single person actually mentioned a video or a riot or something like that that's what the administration been telling the American people in the world that this was a a result of of a video -- on Iraq.
Never once did anybody on the ground ever mention that that was -- -- We've got Susan Rice investing UN who set on every single Sunday morning show within days you've -- Jay Carney white house press second former member of the media also repeating that false story.
I mean got to -- people instead the administration did everything it could do this video there's got to be a reason if they knew -- 24 hours.
That this was terrorism probably related to al-Qaeda.
Why were -- pushing this ridiculous video story to the American people and hoping it would step.
And the American people are gonna have to come to that -- conclusion I can tell you that the security personal up personnel on the ground.
We're asking for more personnel it is to protect them.
Not only did they not got to get that big got a reduction in the -- -- Of the personal accident they did a lousy job they did tell me -- me -- Ford did people are concede that it sort of competence or or they're just horrible locker whatever on their president logic.
But that they -- I just can't get -- that he is is this business about this videotape why if they newest terrorism.
Why did they keep pushing the videotape and it kept pushing it for days there had to be a reason because it's so patently ridiculous.
But the idea that this was a result of a video gone awry is somewhere between patently false and an outright lie I don't know where I'm -- that why.
I I don't know because like I don't think it fit their narrative I don't think it fit the narrative that everything was fine if we just be good neighbors if -- you know if we're just nice to everybody.
-- -- -- -- Al-Qaeda is is still very active in the region as you said and we have to deal with that reality like I said.
The security personnel what it more personnel they wanted more fortification of the buildings -- was denied.
But if you read the builders are -- the thesis which I take away from read from it and I've posted on Greta wire some viewers can read it.
Is that it was done to.
To hide the fact that the middle east policy -- failed that al-Qaeda is growing and that it's now up against an election and this whole thing was there was -- -- put the lid on I.
I evidence as a theory I've written an article.
I would I wouldn't disagree and are trying to obvious factual as a candidate -- for more -- -- denied asked for fortification of the buildings.
Denied in fact there were debt reduction in personnel we had two bombings in in.
Preceding this that one on nine elevenths we had two attacks on the ambassador from from -- And still.
We walk into 9/11 thinking that there was no actionable intelligence are you kidding me that.
So that's a whole another story cystic -- my intelligence -- -- that's another night.
Insinuate thank you can't --
