Hillary Clinton was essentially.
Taken one for the team.
Saying that the did it this whole dust up in Libya stops at her door not the president -- Was she trying to take that grenade away at it tonight.
Look give her credit for trying to cover for the president.
Instead of being thrown under the -- crawled into the us.
But shame on the president for letting me do that the buck stops Harry Truman said the buck stops here it stops in the White House.
But she was saying done that.
Look we get addicted to stops first with the State Department we get -- these briefings but the reason I'm glad to have you here is a former chief -- -- -- you were in on daily security briefings with President Bush senior.
What's involved -- certainly something like this would come up in those briefings -- it.
Look there was -- noticed today with a letter from Lindsey Graham.
That on June 6 there was a breach of the wall by NI ED that put a huge hole in the wall around the compound.
That kind of thing would most certainly have been in the briefings to the president.
If the president does the president had taken the -- now is the secretary of state in on that briefing.
No but she gets so there's an on air and I don't -- president we view but it's it's usually the president the vice president the chiefs of staff from the national security -- and what it's about ten to twelve pages in an attempt to twelve pages of summary.
And then about a half hour discussion.
Between the participants the -- before that were there.
And the CIA briefer and sometimes he brings a couple of specialists to brief on that stuff and and it's the questioning back and forth.
In which the details that the president really needs to know to get a sense as to what's happening around the with a lot of hot spots all over the world right and so so -- Who's to say they've been godsey and growing unrest there would have come up -- a -- do you think is certainly would have been included is the answer.
As as senator Graham said in his letter today on June 6.
The the wall around the compound was breached by an explosive and put a huge -- -- a huge security problem.
That's the kind of thing that would I can't imagine it not being told at least to the national security advisor would have what is -- in a breach in the briefly.
In a briefing and I can't imagine the national security advisor.
Not telling the president particularly.
In a political season so that the president.
Doesn't get -- with a question.
From the press when he gets off the plane someplace if they have just happened to hear about it -- President Bush read the full briefing that pilots -- -- President Bush read the full briefing and had my -- last half hour.
Discussion with the briefings and that's the half hour.
Is what President Obama has skipped almost 60% of the time.
Now with the -- then.
Cuts that it does the highlights for -- -- it is to president.
This is bad in -- has yet this is bit.
So if they didn't read they would at least give him a heads up so they wouldn't make -- let's go to the priorities okay.
Here's primaries because -- is the president could rightly argue.
Well the -- is never briefed.
Well the president can argue a lot of things including two weeks after this thing happened.
When everybody knew it was terrorism going to the UN in -- six times it's the video.
How can you have such a dishonest presentation of what's going on at what went on it with a tragic loss of our ambassador.
And and not see a White House that has a lack of character I don't understand.
-- -- is something your decision before the show started governor that this might not be the venue.
That -- to come up or at least come up combative bullet but insists this is a bet that tonight's venue.
It it is is answering questions from selected members of the public.
And and it is really hard to get hot exchanges in this.
This this is the kind of venue -- creates a draw all the time I think you're going to see us saw coming out here and explaining why our candidate decisively won.
The draw half that.
But what I -- -- that sometime -- it's not always interpreted that way when you're Obama's what he made it -- seriously looked at his watch it was kind.
He do you think that would it.
I always thought that was made a much bigger deal was warranted but -- it was caught on camera so now I understand they'd never.
-- -- watched a division and a whale watch and and and Bill Clinton I will give Clinton credit for.
That moment of empathy there were any kind of set -- standard for this kind of a venue.
I think that's very important and I think it is I think it's going to be a very informative debate I don't think it's gonna be it's exciting is that for us.
Well we are planning.
You know around the clock covered on fox business -- -- to some a little better next time you come by.
Governor but thank you anyway to be -- excuse -- you know welcomed the Long Island groping cleans and went to school without -- -- not too -- premier young man.
