Meantime there is blistering new criticism over the media's handling of the US consulate attack in Libya on September 11.
In an interview on FOX News Sunday radio talk show host Laura Ingram claiming a very similar attack.
Had happened under Republican president in the White House it would have been a media firestorm instead she argues the Obama administration of the moment is getting a free pass here -- her case.
We have a debt ambassador to Navy SEALs dead another security officer dead the president answers this the next morning by flying to Vegas for a fund raiser.
If I might I submit that if this were -- Republican president and this went down this way you have reporters camped outside of Hillary's house prices house and demand that the president -- -- full blown press conference on what happened maybe it's just incompetence.
Maybe it's a series of innocent mistakes.
But my goodness when you had three attacks of violent attacks inside Ben Ghazi on the Red Cross office at the consulate and then postings on FaceBook that we're coming after you.
On September -- They didn't have any actionable intelligence what.
This is a little ridiculous.
And I think the press is -- will apparently called.
Although there now what about that does she make a fair case Rudy Giuliani former mayor New York City -- Romney supporter mayor good morning to you.
-- sure she doesn't really had to do is look at this morning's New York Times front page nothing about Ben Ghazi was all over them.
A Sunday morning talk show us.
-- dominated the talk shows yesterday what's interesting is that when she made those comments she was sitting next to a correspondent from the New York Times but she talked about listen explain -- does -- -- Explain it as a series of innocent mistakes whatever it is just explain.
-- exactly right I mean the the the the contradictions are astounding -- -- vice president of United States in that debate where he was laughing and giggling and acting acting kind of like -- -- -- Did make a very important misrepresentation.
He said that the White House wasn't informed that there were asking for more secure or more security now that's hard to believe.
It's hard to believe the White House didn't know about it.
If they didn't know about it and how disengaged are they from the security of our people -- all over the world particularly on Libya a country where they have a great interest and -- did.
It -- -- I was on the same program we've talked about this you know this matter of being here in the -- did not arrive or are rise to the level there.
Where the president or vice president will be told of this the White House those are matters handled the State Department -- -- it why don't you believe that flies.
Well maybe this is because the president -- -- doesn't get his national security briefings.
Maybe it is because we have had a president in the year flying off to Nevada traveling here traveling there gets only half his national security briefings.
We have we have a campaigner in chief not a president and chief.
That alone isn't an issue that this -- rise to the level of the president finding out about it.
Six months of desperate request for more security for a -- terrorist incidents that should've warned you.
And September 11 which excuse me maybe you should be a little word on September 11 and not getting ready for your trip to a Las Vegas.
Don't how is Mitt Romney handling this I think Mitt Romney -- and a fine and I think that I think that.
You know at first he got criticized for making this statement that we should of apologized.
For the for the for the Mohammed film which you've got -- to be turned out to be actually right about.
This had nothing to do with the Mohammed -- the weather in a protest in advance and they try to sell that one for ten days.
So I think he's handled it correctly turns out to have been right about his criticism.
I think that he's hurt by the fact that the media isn't covering this even with with basic -- even basic fairness.
So Republicans have to make a point and when we do.
We're accused of politicized but excuse me.
These are very very serious questions.
I don't also was a cover up I don't know who just a series of mistakes.
I'm I'm a former prosecutor I don't believe in coincidences so I kinda think it is a cover up I think they're covering up the fact that they blew Libya.
Just like they blew Egypt and like they're in the process of blowing -- -- -- specific.
-- the media charge you're getting coverage here in the Fox News Channel.
CNN found the dead ambassadors diary and then -- they've been covering it.
You can make the argument -- CBS is doing as well.
But where the rest what's where's the New York Times with the Washington Post world and major newspapers whereas NBC my goodness embassy.
Got got the revision have to cover this I -- that should have been on -- front page of the New York Times today.
It dominated the Sunday news yesterday.
You have to have deliberately taken it off the front page given what happened yesterday on Sunday -- David Axelrod made the claim that Mitt Romney is doing his best to exploit this.
Well I think it is is there an argument to be made there are or how was this handled on Tuesday while they should be he should be exploiting and I mean the fact is there's a real chance -- a cover up here.
They are trying to run out the clock.
Hillary Clinton appointed this commission this you know and investigate that I can report to next January or February -- -- deliberate attempt to run out the clock.
Susan rice's statements are totally inexplicable.
The president's statements or inexplicable when he talks about this as having been created by the Mohammed film and the vice president's statement the other night.
It's either either he's not telling the truth -- this administration is so disengaged.
We need another administration that that can protect us it'll be fascinating to see how it is brought Auburn Giuliani thank you for your -- thank you --
