-- it in -- this deceit or ideology.
Well thanks to vice president -- in the White House taking new heat over the -- attack and last night the vice president -- the State Department.
Under the bus for security failures -- Ben -- he claims they never told the White House the consulate in Ben Ghazi asked for extra protection.
We were told there would do what want more security do we did not know they want -- more security and by the way.
At the time we were told exactly we said exactly what the intelligence community told us that they -- That was the assessment and as the intelligent -- be changed your view we made it clear they changed their view.
And today governor Romney jumping all over vice president Biden's comments.
That raise some questions about Ben Ghazi.
And the and the tragedy that occurred there in the -- there are more questions that came out of last night.
Because the vice president directly contradicted.
The sworn testimony of State Department officials.
He's doubling down on.
Former ambassador John Bolton joins -- -- service could be here I had an idea out because every -- their incompetence ideology or cover up that's my three but this is begin to look a little bit like the old.
Comedy routine and this is not funny but who's on first.
Well I think Vice President Biden last night really crossed an important line and it was reinforced by the White House spokesman today they have dug a moat around the white house on the one hand.
And the State Department intelligence community on the other.
Basically saying that the buck stops at the State Department as Ed Henry asked the spokesman earlier today.
Now if that's the case one has to ask what's our National Security Council staff for is not to monitor what's going on at the State Department to know.
Where security problems around the world -- don't forget.
Ambassadors are the president's personal represented it's obviously they work for the State Department.
But the ambassador covers all of -- agencies overseas.
And they're all presidential appointees sort of say -- we didn't know about it is it is an admission in my view of real.
That failure on the part of the top management of the White House well what.
As secretary of cloud state Clinton said today she said that ambassador rice had an issue an investor -- -- Sunday morning shows on Sunday after the Tuesday when it happened.
This deficit ambassador rice to the same information from the intelligence community that every other senior official -- out of every other means the White House as well.
But it sounds like she's and it's the intelligence community that -- came up with this video protest idea when they are now denying net instead of -- -- Well the intelligence community had it has its own views and they'll get their revenge in their own ways but for the State Department secretary Hillary Clinton to be saying.
That it was based on the intelligence community really defies credulity her own department.
Was in real time communication.
With the diplomatic security personnel at the consulate -- Ben -- when the attack was under way.
And the next day obviously talking to -- -- forget what the intelligence community was saying how about what the State Department itself was -- You know there weren't this -- -- it was a -- is that.
Is the omission what's not there and hasn't been named protest I suspect.
At the US and a bit embassy here -- console before this and then did the explosion was at 940 at PM let's say that there was -- protest at 7 o'clock or 5 o'clock before about.
That information -- would have been relayed to headquarters -- so any human there was never even any information that there was a protest nothing.
Quite the contrary business was going on as normal and they recognize that there was some security.
Concerned because ambassador Stevens did not leave the compound -- that day he was meeting was not eleven other other people -- the last visitor was the Turkish ambassador toward the end of the day.
There'd been no report of any trouble for people getting into or out of the compound up until -- Hi Tom.
The now though the White House said dad we don't know anything.
That's that Jay Carney says they don't blame the president don't blame the vice president don't blame me nobody told us anything -- well we're in the dark.
Yeah look there's no question -- the president and the vice president are going to be involved in the nitty gritty of hundreds of security decisions around the world.
But in a high threat mission where you've had evidence of al-Qaeda attacks against other missions were for goodness sakes the Red Cross has withdrawn from -- guys think.
Did the Red Cross which which lives in the environment of war thought it was too dangerous.
That's something that the president and the vice president and certainly the secretary of state should be aware of all the time -- Nobel Peace Prize today going into the EU the European Union.
Well I'd -- could have been worse they could have given it to Barack Obama again I mean this is this is an example of the trivialization.
And the politicized nation of the -- Nobel Peace Prize.
And it also reflects a fundamental misconception that many Europeans have about why Europe is at peace.
It's not because of the European Union because American -- it's because of the NATO alliance it's because we sheltered Europe during the Cold War.
To give them the chance to work out some of their differences.
You know its decision it would mean you're the EU -- the year is failing a -- that dead their economy is going under and then they're creating another global crisis CIA MF recently said that we're -- and other global crisis.
You've got countries about to go bankrupt that are in the EU.
Any idea that there are now being rewarded and at one point says as a morale boost to remind me a little bit how like we have a -- -- -- -- sports team and you get the losing team all trophies too because they're all six years old and you really want to get bought everybody a trophy.
Mean there's if this is not a success story right now it.
-- you know it's not in fact it contradicts the rationale the prize the argument for European integration -- some people have is that war in New York.
Was caused by nationalism so the way that you avoid war in the future is to reduce nationalism by forming something like the European Union.
Get what is happening today they're rioting in Greece they're riding -- -- because of the German dominance of the European they -- -- even Angela Merkel on the chancellor of Germany was in Greece and a recliner and Nazis and just this last week yet that this doesn't look like the the obliteration of nationalism but but fundamentally that whole point is wrong you know that in Britain.
They're democracy didn't break down in the 1920s and 1930s and that's why Britain is so Euro skeptic they say our nationalism is doing just fine why we have to give it up.
And that's -- thank you sir -- give.
