Vice President Biden blaming.
Of course didn't intelligence community regarding me being -- terrorist attacks have killed four Americans during Thursday night's presidential debate here's what the vice president said.
There were no protests because lies in that -- on what we were told by intelligence community.
Intelligent he really told us that as they learn more facts about exactly what happened.
-- change to their assessment.
And they want to let our security there -- we were told there would do what want more security -- we did not know they want a more security and by the way.
At the time we were told exactly who said exactly what the Intel -- human told us that they -- That was the assessment and as the intelligent can be changed your view we made it clear they change their view.
So did MVP throw the intelligence community under the bus joining us -- -- -- is senior fellow.
Center for advanced defense studies lieutenant colonel Tony -- good to see -- -- -- graphic again Joseph Biden says reset exactly what the intelligence community told us that they knew you did that.
No of course not there is folks like me -- -- getting information from our friends and inside from within 24 hours.
Further there was actionable intelligence.
These guys these attackers were coordinating their activities.
Via blogs and social media and -- the C I didn't see that then there's something wrong I'm told they did see it.
So this information.
Was sent up the chain of command multiple ways so walk the -- but Vice President Biden is saying is either a lie.
Or someone lied to him and the president there's no other way around it.
And let me be clear here they've thrown everybody under the -- You saw the three week delay in the FBI to get there look there I the FBI could have been there in 48 hours and this whole premise for a quick of of budget.
-- did a gimme a break the the military has a separate budget.
Colonel what testified the fact that his team wanted to stay there that comes out of a completely different pot of money a -- that wasn't even touched.
So we've got this -- through the facts here -- and the vice president clearly is politicizing this.
And lieutenant colonel what may help in the wake of the bin Laden killing to talk about our intelligence community to talk about the Navy SEALs.
Building morale what happens in a moment like this when we've got its folks working hard around the world.
What happens within our intelligence community when they are -- -- under the.
-- like this.
-- you're seeing a revolt I've had people ask me to come talk to them I've never talked to before because they're trying to say look this was -- must.
We hit it not been critical intelligence community before -- right -- initial talking about the failures failures they've had.
This was not them they were told in many ways to sit on -- hands don't do their job and and and and Ben Ghazi that's one of the reasons you didn't see a lot of the details we needed.
Break break the same time what we did see was frightening there was a pattern leading up to the attack.
And that's what was ignored and let me be very clear to Jay Carney -- is supposedly briefed that the said that the president was briefed President Obama was briefed on the tenth.
Of September about global security about everything that was going on so either they didn't tell the present truth about the deficit of problem of of security and in Ben Ghazi.
Or something else is -- here but and this that the the elements of the story are not adding up.
Yeah outweigh what I can't quite reconcile.
Is that right away.
Now we know right away.
-- Ben Ghazi consulate said there was no proof of a protest we do have video that there was a clear attack on our facility.
Was there any actual intelligence that this had anything to do with the protest related to of course that film.
No and I think this is for everybody to start focusing.
There's a reason why that information is put out right now there's no one has -- it that there's no indication any thing.
Of that whole video story is true if it was cut out of whole cloth.
So I think this is there's a reason why that information put out I think there's a deeper darker.
Bad reason they're trying to cover this up and I think over the next three weeks.
We're gonna see a lot more on it's -- it's it's as bad as it seems how do we get well -- on this.
You first off the hearings are useful -- in the entire hearing last night and I'm telling you right now there's little clues -- the people ought to be starting to pick up on.
My sources tell me that there were other things going on within that consulate.
That the the White House doesn't want talk about because it's gonna make him look really really bad.
So ultimately -- what you see all these different stories going different directions because it's hard.
When you try to lie to keep a light that is focused.
And the truth is they knew this is an attack they try to cover it up and or something more I think you'll see coming out next couple weeks and the truth is that won't happen until after the election.
Of course right lieutenant colonel -- the whole thing is always for being here.
