But the cover -- Libya a leading to fireworks at last night's debate since -- day after this year September 11 attack the Obama administration's been dishing out different versions of what happened.
Here's a look at their ever changing stories.
What -- -- -- social media what we're seeing in some of the local commentary.
Is largely related to this reprehensible -- -- we've seen rage.
And violence directed at American embassies over an awful.
Internet video that we had nothing to do with.
This was not just.
It's extremely offensive.
Video directed at the -- Mohamad and Islam extremists and terrorists use this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies including the one the consulate in in Libya.
Killed in the course of the terrorist attack on our embassy what happened -- -- it was a terrorist attack.
-- still during an investigation there's no doubt that.
That kind of weapons that were used to ongoing assault that it wasn't just.
A mob action whose group if you -- obviously you conducted that attack.
And now -- President Obama changing his tune again.
For weeks the president spent saying al-Qaeda is on the runs and on -- heels but today and everyone was listing for this.
The president specifically removed those who -- campaign speech senator Lindsey Graham is demanding answers from the -- and he joins us nice to seem it's nice to see -- Thank you out from Wisconsin believe it or not that had a great state of Wisconsin after I -- Nickelodeon that aircraft that.
-- -- a -- -- IN.
A couple days ago to the president and you identified.
To prior incidents at the -- Ben Ghazi 1 April and one in June 1 and June but quite a big enough hole.
In the perimeter to send it to fourteen feet or forty people -- marched through and you asked the president.
Did you consider these serious the -- Why did -- Democrats that.
-- I have to be fair to the president I don't expect that -- -- request for twelve additional security personnel would go to the president.
That does go through the State Department I don't expect him to know the request to keep sixteen Utah national Guardsmen.
In Libya for security.
But I do expect him to know that Ben Ghazi was deteriorating overtime.
That our consulate was attacked twice I can't imagine anyone else -- -- card addressed this directly.
If the consulate in the -- Libya's attacked within sixty days of each other twice.
With a hole blown in the wall were forty people go through it.
-- would expect the president to know that -- also expect him to be informed that the.
British consulate in many guys he was closed after the British investor was -- by RPG's.
And the Red Cross was close to make Gaza because deteriorating security and al-Qaeda was on the rise in your salute and a colonel -- said.
He said we were really the last flag flying in -- -- and then Ghazi.
It was almost inevitable the console would be attacked everybody else had left and the reason they denied the extra security.
Discussed the State Department warning to normalize relationships in Libya.
At the time we were concentrating on normalizing relationships and turning this over -- Libyan government.
They really didn't exist everybody else was leading and I hold the president accountable for that and I want to know Mr.
Were you doing your job were you following that deteriorating situation in -- Ghazi did you know that the Libyan consulate and then Ghazi.
The last flag standing was a death trap for Americans in if you didn't why.
What it is questions -- -- what is your theory as to whether or not.
He knew -- are we didn't know why did not have -- -- 11 questions two part.
And a segment.
What world is when this video.
A story that and that I was a protest why didn't -- and that since 11 September are now backing down of course it recently.
Well -- Well if you say a Triad based on a video this spontaneous.
They have a lot less blame and I'd be first to say it.
That this was a mob that was generated that video that's a different.
National security threat harder to plan for.
So they wanted us to believe that the video had nothing to do this -- -- there was never a mob.
It's pretty hard to have a riot by a mob that never existed.
The video of the compound the consulate showed that there wasn't a soul around the consulate before they attack.
But they wanted us to believe and they thought the media wouldn't check and that -- -- would run out and there's only a few weeks left to the election.
Congress was at a session so they were trying to stand.
A version that would make them less.
Couple -- it.
The truth came out.
They say this that trip and -- that.
These face then but and we have frankly as far as Ellis like Spencer does it take a look truth to -- Seattle -- to it -- -- make it look better way but this actually from the way you laid -- looks like they are.
High eighty net and they didn't want the American people don't know what as -- vastly different.
-- it is and and the best she could say is they took one piece of intelligence and spun it and deny the obvious.
But the most likely scenario is that they can strug did.
Where they would the -- couple ball -- costs if the truth came out.
-- -- in Ghazi consulate had been attacked in April and June previously.
And that the British had to -- -- Gaza in the Red Cross was driven now.
Then that's a different story it's a story about al-Qaeda coming back.
Going south and it destroys the narrative that back killing bin Laden al-Qaeda has been dismantled.
And it also destroys that narrative you can lead from behind in -- and everything's fine hold the president personally accountable for knowing the security situation.
In the world and if you're listening Mr.
-- rockets falling apart if no one else is telling you this.
I'm telling you this since we left Iraq there's been a doubling of al-Qaeda in Iraq they're training camps in western Iraq.
That -- Kurdish president hasn't spoken to prime minister Maliki in a year and the political process is broken and securities deteriorating.
Senator -- thank you -- Thank you.
