Five days later Susan Rice goes out and tells a story about a spontaneous protest when we now know the -- State Department never thought that was a there was a spontaneous protest and that we know and they were in -- in real time with people on the ground in Ben -- on the allotment.
They haven't you -- but I don't think we know exactly why she did -- -- what was going on but the key which you pointed out.
Did David Axelrod is two weeks later the president -- the UN in -- -- this YouTube video.
I guess half a dozen times that it is we now know had.
Virtually nothing to do with what happened -- -- floor.
-- I I think about Susan Rice going out there on the show and for other shows on Sunday.
And I'd like to know did Susan Rice have any direct or indirect contact with anyone from the Obama campaign.
Maybe Valerie Jarrett still works in the White House privacy very close to the president mom -- Tom O'Donnell and I would like to know that I liked mr.
Axelrod to answer that question.
I would hope that the New York Times as they -- outside of Scooter Libby house during the whole Valerie Plame thing of these are you guys camped outside of the Susan Rice residents and me as seriously whether she was put out as it as a sacrificial lamb or not it's great we lose and -- then I'm not really a litmus.
-- 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 -- Republican president and this went down this way -- 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 then got beat on that Red Cross office the consulate and then postings on FaceBook that were coming after you.
On September -- They didn't have any actionable intelligence what.
This is really ridiculous.
And I think the press is -- will partly culpable here.
-- I think this is one of the things is going to be litigated in the final weeks of the campaign I mean.
-- actually here on out there talking to voters people are are are raising this is a question and this was not the case three weeks ago -- ambassador rice was out making the statement it was not really -- It was not on the minds of people now it is on the minds of the public so I think that's one of the key things that will be discussed at this debate and certainly the next debate next week next Monday in Florida on foreign policy I think the Obama administration and the campaign has created.
Pretty large opening here for governor Romney to make the the broader argument about competence and leadership and things and it it is up to the president to answer some of these questions I don't think we've hit.
Have all the answers right now.
And done I'm fascinated to see how he's going to respond -- when asked by a real person or four when asked next week -- AM moderator about this he hasn't had many press conferences he hasn't really explained.
Himself and they have a lot of I'm.
The questions to answer do you think this has legs in the campaign -- YouTube do you really think voters care about -- don't know I mean I think there's only three weeks left and you know millions of people are already voting so not sure there's and that's time for this to have a huge effect for I think on the margins.
If that does -- more questions in people's minds about what exactly the administration's up to but.
In terms of congressional hearings and other things there's not that much time before the election if this was was a June or July I think a potentially more so.
Well that suggestion and -- -- -- leave early and get over this is -- residential its enlargement a good point.
It shouldn't just be up to the campaign and the candidates to just to try to get to the bottom of this before Election Day.
This should be a job for all the good investigative reporters in the media to be out on this story of investigative teams such as there -- should be all over this this does have.
It seems to me an extremely strong -- of cover up.
And it does look like.
Who it was who engineered in some way there's just something about those fourth -- five appearances on Sunday with a story that they had to know.
Was all place.
That doesn't smell right and then ought to be exposed.
