All right we'll Arizona Senator John McCain with some very strong words on our show this morning about secretary Clinton's response.
To the deadly consulate attack in Libya.
Curious moments and now.
I -- -- admired Secretary Clinton and frankly I'm.
I'm really a little bit this sad and because she's really harming her reputation by engaging in this.
Incredible cover up throwing yourself under the bus just a couple of time she's.
She's done that.
Joined now by Tennessee Republican.
-- coworker on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee senator good morning good to have you with us tomorrow Martha.
Very strong words -- from your colleague good to have is always serve from her colleague Senator McCain this morning what do you think about Hillary Clinton's role in all of this and and how she has responded to it.
Look -- I've had as Jon -- good relationship whether she's been.
What they think she's been -- stay I think this whole episode is unfortunate and I think it speaks to.
The essential character of this administration over the last four years and that is.
Always find some why the blind.
Someone now for what has happened and you know I -- -- been signed Martha from day one.
This the administration move within 24 hours I know this for a fact -- still know that for a fact I've known it all along they knew that from the very beginning.
Not only that this with a terrorist attack but they also -- which parties were involved than that and I doubt that's thanks it's big for this administration and they're continual efforts to find some reason.
That they're not responsible for what it.
That basically any evidence points to a very prolonged fight.
That ended about seven hours after those initial emails were sent to the situation round.
And it ended in a very bloody fight according to her reporting.
For two former Navy SEALs went guardian Tyrone woods -- have to wonder what's going into the minds of their families and friends as they hear.
That there -- her assets that could have been mobilized military assets during that seven hour period that for some reason we're not sent in to help.
What answers do we have -- for these people.
Yeah so so look in fairness among my major critique of this as -- -- response.
Just publicly about what is happening I didn't -- -- -- there on the ground and I know that they had to call and actually a civilian aircraft.
And it did take them some time to get an aircraft to take the response folks from Tripoli after they've got the when they got have been -- they -- to rely upon a militia to actually get him there and I took a circuitous route around the mother.
Anti American militias that happened to be in the area so I do know the response.
In and clumsy and out with the bath that the folks on the ground bottom of the -- Well let me -- from my may interject to question -- because that sounds like we you know we were relying on.
I'm friendly forces to us in Libya but not bringing in our own US military and I think that is a question a lot of people want answered why didn't we bring them in to help.
I think the question actually goes back Martha even before that and that is what all the things that have occurred in the area the British ambassador leaving all the things that -- -- -- that the previous bombings.
Why did we not have folks there to secure our -- and then -- that to me.
That is even the bigger question because those things were put in those warning -- shown early home -- are they now so.
It's the free effort and then obviously the response from the -- -- stroke -- which again is totally bizarre mostly.
Why not calling an clapper perhaps Leon Panetta the head of defense.
And others who would have been privy to this information in question about this in congress is that something that we can expect to -- eight.
-- PureAV actually had a very terse conversation myself what director clapper since this occurred and it's very disappointed in the presentation that he made and classified setting to senators on both the -- Again Martha.
Again I wanna go -- to the administration.
From day one of this administration has been all about -- and finance -- -- someone out that's just been that character of this administration.
It is still to make totally unacceptable that they would allow their ambassador to the United Nations -- five television programs on Sunday morning.
To purposely mislead the American people I am very upset about that you would thank.
That if they warrant purposely misleading the American people what they would have done on the very first show she was home of somebody -- -- given her the Hawkins that look she's off base.
They allow this to go on and I think -- that speaks again.
This administration politicizing this not not Republicans but this administration politicizing.
That staff for senator corporate thank you our speech against and I you know very.
