Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight will live he'll lose the election for President Obama that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
Excellent reporting by Fox's correspondent Jennifer Griffin has revealed that during the four hour firefight in -- Ghazi Libya on 9/11.
Americans under siege from Muslim terrorists armed with heavy weapons repeatedly asked for help from the CR IAA.
Shockingly help did not -- the agency could of call for air cover or moved a delta force team to the area it did not.
Also CIA officials told the former navy seal -- woods who was a mile away from the attack with a small security team not to enter the fire zone.
woods disobeyed the water and tried to rescue ambassador Christopher Stephens and other Americans.
-- woods was killed that day so was the ambassador he's -- -- Smith and -- -- also a former navy seal.
Today on a radio program.
President Obama said this.
I was not personally aware of any request obviously -- haven't infrastructure of the setup.
Managed requests like that but we're gonna find out exactly what happens.
-- ultimately vote.
Anytime there is a death of American overseas.
I want to find out what happened because my most important job as president is keeping the American people safe.
All right so once again mr.
Obama didn't explain what happened on nine Lebanon Libya once again he said his administration.
But -- much so much misinformation has put.
Been put out there by the Obama administration you would think that six weeks after the attack some kind of clarity could be put forth by the president.
But he doesn't have to do -- because the press is not pushing him.
This week NBC news anchor Brian Williams one of the few journalists mr.
Obama's talking with had a chance to ask him some tough questions.
-- The assessment of your intelligence community as we stand here is that it still was a spontaneous terrorist attack.
And were you happy with what you were able to learn as this -- Hold it it went on for several hours twelve.
As I've said Brian we're gonna do a full investigation.
Obviously win for Americans are killed.
Don't you have to do some soul searching in terms of making sure that.
All our systems where they need to be and that's what we're going to find out.
What I'm confident about -- is that we will be able to figure out who perpetrated this act.
There will be able to bring them to justice.
And we are confident that we've got the cooperation.
That is is same answer.
The president has given for weeks nothing new.
Instead of citing some inconsistencies from the administration about the Libyan attack.
Drop the subject totally dropped it after one misleading question.
Going onto the bogus women's health issues.
Williams implied that American intelligence stands behind the theory.
That the Libyan attack was quote spontaneous.
But it's not a fact but was presented as such by Brian Williams.
Not talking points is not -- being at either the president.
Williams but this is one big Macs and the national media is not demanding answers nor did governor Romney during the foreign policy debate.
By the way despite that interview -- mr.
Obama the factor at 8 o'clock last night.
Beat the NBC program Rock Center in total audience just kind of -- Getting back to -- My view -- Muslim terrorists we're tracking ambassador Stephens they had heavy weapons at the red.
And saw an opening to attack in -- -- there's nothing spontaneous.
The CIA was caught -- then froze when all hell broke loose apparently not understanding rescue options or what was at stake.
When the damage and death became fully known the Obama administration tried to manage it.
Rather than report it and -- chaos developed and people like UN ambassador Susan Rice as well as White House spokesperson Judy corny.
Did not assess the situation correctly to the public.
Talking points believes rice and corn he worked hold what to say.
What -- cool.
Is a question Brian Williams should -- -- because President Obama -- to know the answer to that it is intense.
Evil bull that he does it.
Let me repeat.
If you asked President Obama who hold.
Ambassador rice and Jay Carney to tell the world that a stupid video -- prompted the Libyan attack.
The president hacks to answer the question.
But no one will -- film.
For me it's incredibly frustrating I sat there waiting.
For governor Romney Bob Schieffer and now Brian Williams to ask mr.
Obama a very simple question.
He wasn't acts.
The president will most likely -- more way in the Libyan issue entirely and hope the voters don't care.
One more thing.
All administrations make mistakes from George Washington to Abraham Lincoln to Franklin Roosevelt all presidents.
Have presided over squirrel ops.
Just total of folks the truth Mr.
President tell us what you know.
I knew who you are holding responsible.
For this mess.
And that's the memo.
Before you get your reaction want to give you the latest polling because.
