-- back -- speaker Newt Gingrich sir I'm speaker of current speaker of the house John Boehner has written a letter to the -- United States about Libya and he has set among other things that.
No one -- the administration can substitute for his voice in telling him that -- he wishes that he would tell us essentially and congress and the American people.
What happened in -- Libya do you agree with the -- -- Yeah I think -- just -- Boehner has done something important here you know colonel bing west is a -- remarkable marine.
Recently wrote an article pointing out.
That they had seven hours.
To get forces to Ben -- that they had a marine detachment incessantly they had a F eighteen in and Sicily.
The F -- could have been over the constant about an hour the Marines could have landed -- guys in about two hours.
The two seals who are killed don't battle 4 o'clock in the morning.
The fact is we left -- console with all sorts of secret documents uncovered.
Open to anybody.
So you go back and you look at that you say why didn't somebody not -- so the president.
Well why didn't somebody in the national command system.
Figure out in the opening minutes let's get the Marines in -- let's get they Aaron did the fighter aircraft in there.
Let's drive away the insurgents and then let's protect the embassy consulate.
And I think colonel west is -- raise a very.
Very important question that I hope people like John Boehner will pick up one and really push there's a missing seven hours.
When lives could have been saved American secrets could have been preserved.
And something should have been done and apparently not -- was the president not available neither was anybody else in the national command authority.
What -- it's so curious why the president hasn't spoken out and -- gone to roll transcription one on Jon Stewart and he said in part.
What I have always try to do is to make sure that we just get all the facts well that's not true because he went out with the video and that was never a fact.
He goes on a few seconds later and says every piece of information we get -- we got it we laid out for the American people well that's not true they got an email that night in which some terrorist group -- at least claimed responsibility while they were not claiming that it was terrorism so it's just not true.
You know he's left his big mystery for the American people on it and -- you know I -- just do you mean what happened.
-- is not a big mystery.
The president -- -- paddling a set of falsehoods.
Since the very first days for some reason and I don't know whether it's the president sympathy for Islam.
-- the president's unwillingness to confront the reality of Islamic extremists.
Or what it is I'm not rendered judgment here but for some reason he fixated on this really stupid movie.
Which I've never seen most Americans have never seen and friend practical we will common sense -- never seen and my hunch is the president's never seen.
But nobody is -- the United Nations.
But isn't it crazy even more bizarre than that because he fixated on that but it wasn't like he was never mentioned the -- emails -- he he just it's not like it was mentioned -- something might have been a protest.
-- don't weren't Cairo Egypt mean there was never any suggestion that there was a video he -- and that.
It was just bizarre but.
I I think in their minds I think this is a psychological problem not a policy problem.
I think a narrow minds Obama and his top people.
Had this image -- they could explain all the problems in the Middle East as America's fault.
Once again we had done something bad once again they had to apologize US and look at his speech to the UN which is frankly an embarrassment.
Mean here's a guy who -- the in the UC is impersonal think it's as though he's personally offended.
By the attack on Islam and assess personally and emotionally engaged him.
And so I think they did this long to Libya into this larger picture and they were very resistant remember.
Even after his Press Secretary.
Says to the white house press corps OK this was a terrorist action.
The very same afternoon the president -- is in Florida and he says all this is all because of that film.
He cannot let go of this but there's a deeper question here I mean.
Forget Obama for half second.
Chairman of the joint chiefs members of the joint chiefs.
General Petraeus out at the CIA.
Secretary Clinton the national security advisor Tom balance.
None of these people thought of the fact that we had -- sitting in Sicily none of them ask about the F eighteen sitting in Sicily.
This is the point big west is making.
We might have saved these lives if we had a commander in chief or a team though is prepared to do something decisively.
Right to just a quick question on tomorrow lab that governor Romney's giving a speech in Iowa on economics.
What sister of that is -- going to be a service stump speech are they doing your own -- but no.
We lawyers admit things I can't tell -- because -- I frankly have been both in lacrosse Wisconsin and now down here in Austin so I'm not gonna pretend.
I do think that he understands.
But the more vividly he can portray a job creating energy developing free enterprise model.
The bigger the -- and -- between -- and Obama.
speaker -- and I see you thank you sir.
To do it.
