chairman I would like to have another hearing where we can ask ambassador rice under oath who told you want to win.
You're -- blame the intelligence committee you come before this committee could you tell us who told you it was a video.
Well there's an angry -- out mean.
During this week's house oversight committee hearing on the -- leaving -- terror attack.
House Republicans are saying they're determined to find out who's to blame for the security breakdown in Libya.
Joining us now Stephen from GA -- expert with The Heritage Foundation.
Thank you for joining us today do you think at this point -- White House and other.
I have to say being a military leader and a government leader my whole life they're not exactly acting -- a real leadership like mode that they've.
Pointed the finger at a subordinate.
And that's that's a pretty poor way to do it.
What's your take away from the hearing this week.
I think that the congress is rightfully upset that they have at best received grossly inaccurate information and possibly deliberately so.
That's their job as the representatives of the people to bring those things to light into investigated I think there.
Their ire is somewhat understandable.
There are many people who are saying it's time for Hillary Clinton -- stepped forward.
And offer some insight on this and to provide information to fill in the gaps.
Well I think Secretary Clinton who is very very well thought of all across the administration and across the government.
She has the gravitas in the integrity I think if she comes.
Before congress under -- I think you get a little more insight into the truth in this and you might get otherwise.
When you take a look at what has been revealed so far it seems that the communication breakdown -- massive on this and yet.
We continue to hear.
From the White House that.
-- -- -- Joseph Biden saying they didn't know.
That's dead diplomatic post there the people there wanted more protection Coxnet -- Well there's always a possibility that nobody told them but.
As a leader you sort of set the tone for your subordinates as -- what things are important to you.
And the fact that there were multiple bombings in Libya attacks on the British council.
Attacks on UN personnel and an International Red Cross personnel.
I think their their awareness should have been heightened enough that.
If something like this was being brought up they should've been informed on -- now I'd be shocked that they weren't.
Going deeper and you take a look at in the narrative that the Obama administration has been putting out there bin Laden is dead.
-- Qaeda has been diminished.
Do you think of that so much of this has become murky and that there's a deliberate attempt now to try and forced this issue to go.
Behind on the back burner so to speak.
As a selection years of dissolving politically driven by the fact that.
It is very clear that al-Qaeda remains strong in some areas and that there are real concerns around the world.
When it comes to those who hate the United States and its interest.
Whom I think you're hitting it right on the head is clearly the narrative that the Obama administration has been pushing for so long as is basically we want.
We can back up we go back to business as usual and this attack in particular store -- shows that is.
It is false and it and it.
Gives lie to everything that has been coming at a White House about the war on terror it's still a war on terror -- still radical.
She hi this terrorists who want to kill us want to kill our representatives.
And in this case in -- -- they were successful.
Lucas thank you so much for joining us live -- -- we appreciate it there's so much at stake right now.
And that we continue to look for those answers thank you for being here glad to be here --
