According to our brand new official emails -- people at the White House and the State Department.
Knew -- -- attack had ties to terror just two hours at today's -- again.
That -- the question to the White House intentionally.
Intentionally try to cover up those terrorist ties with us right now Georgia senator Saxby Chambliss.
-- to -- into it he is vice chairman of the senate select.
Committee on intelligence and -- he said some to be fascinating moments ago.
You said hey I'd like to see those emails you've been asking for me and you can't get -- -- -- I want to get a copy of before I leave here we have been asking the state department of these specifically medals for weeks now.
And they refuse to given to us to this point.
What does -- tell you would now that you know what's in them that they knew within hours that this group -- taking credit and this email -- -- to everything as far as it into the situation room.
Three -- we view within hours I don't remember where there was two hours or.
Ten hours for work but we knew from the intelligence community that and Charles -- radio.
Had claimed responsibility.
For the attack -- does that mean they were responsible for -- you never know but at least they claim responsibility.
There was also report that AQ Itanium was involved turned out they probably weren't but we know this that.
And -- Sharia is and al-Qaeda affiliate.
So if it were not al-Qaeda directly there was an indication immediately that -- -- was involved.
-- what is the problem.
With saying during this time in which were in the middle of a war on terror there's been a terror attack.
What's the big picture here yeah I'm not sure I don't know what the White House -- problem has been through this whole thing but you know Brian here's what really concerns committee.
You've got four Americans did you've got an -- bastard who is a very important person in in the administration.
And you don't have the president -- they get briefed on a regular basis and you don't have the pros and informing the public.
About what's happened -- for key Americans.
-- -- -- So at the very least it shows a massive disconnect doesn't it.
I don't think there's -- question about that and what does bother me I don't know the members of intelligence committee from day one is that we got pushed back both from the White House as well as the intelligence community -- the home.
And we couldn't figured out I mean it was really strange because they never -- that.
I don't think the intelligence committee in any way would participate in any kind of cover up now what goes home at the White House for political purposes may be something entirely as vice chair of the senate select committee.
Are you going to do the same thing how stayed -- and to have hearings on this in light of the new revelations that are out this morning.
We are senator Feinstein and Marty have been a couple of conversations about this I have told -- and I think we need to have an open hearing which is -- usual for us most about your guest.
But we need to have an open here and we need to get the intelligence officials -- and just let him lay it out there this signing is giving more and more traction.
More and more -- has given out there every day and I -- the thing when need to do is being honest to the American people.
And say here's what we -- here's -- -- here's what the president view.
And when the president do senator knows him very tough especially the election two weeks away thanks so much for coming in this morning those great -- -- -- senator from Georgia here in New York.
