New information tonight on the White House is cover up of the -- Ghazi terrorist attack.
Fox News has now learned that 48 hours after that fatal assault.
The National Counterterrorism Center and representatives from the FBI briefed members.
On Capitol Hill and told them there was evidence that al-Qaeda or an al-Qaeda affiliated group was somehow involved.
Well now there at that here's where things get sticky according to sources the very next day CIA director David Petraeus during a Capitol Hill briefing.
Reportedly said the attack was spontaneous.
And equated it to -- flash mob.
So here's the question who in the Obama administration asked General Petraeus to go out and change the story.
Well my next guest is demanding rightly so to know the answer his son Tiger Woods is one of the four Americans killed in the -- Ghazi attack.
His son as a navy seal joining us is Charles woods with his children Jeremiah faith and hope.
Thank you all for being here.
I am so sorry your son.
Turned out to be one of the that this is one of the group most heroic stories I have ever heard in my life.
He was told he was at -- a mile away at the CIA.
I'm a mile away from the consulate he heard the cries for help was told to stand down twice.
And he went anyway you know it does not surprise me at all that my son would disobeyed direct orders from the White House.
To stand down and not to help.
He's trained as a navy seal never to leave anybody behind so it does not surprise me one bit.
That he would jeopardize his military career as well as his life.
To help save the lives and those -- other Americans you shared with me an email you got from one of the people your -- -- Okay this was very -- I received an email from someone who said.
Your son's sacrifice.
Saved my life and I was very much touched by that and he touched many lives he saved many lives but he was his hero long before he went Libya.
What is so frustrating to me.
Is the president two weeks after is still saying that this is related to will be trailer wasn't true.
He still saying it had to do with the movie trailer spontaneous.
This was a terror attack he was asked two weeks later if it was a terrorist still blaming the movie.
That we find out that the ambassador requested security it was deny it and if -- if they reduced it.
And then we find out that they knew from day one they would they could see this in real time.
What what are we to think of why would the president not tell you and your family here and the country the truth why wouldn't they tell me the truth.
I I don't know what their motivation is -- Hillary.
Couple days later when the bodies were flown -- she had the nerve to lie to me I knew she was telling industry if she's smarter than I am she had to know that.
The story that she gave me about the film.
Was not the truth -- and she said they -- then put them in jail she told you.
That filmmaker well someone should be put in jail as a result of the so many people should that I don't think it's a filmmaker we're talking about you blame the president.
You blame the White House let's let's just say I don't want to point any fingers but obviously.
People in the White House were watching this happen.
-- someone in the White House or many people in the White House watched the events unfolding.
And knew that if they gave -- ordered to stand down that my son would die.
They watched my son -- as far as I'm concerned there are people.
In the White House.
Whoever it was that was in that room watching that video my son -- their cries for help.
There order don't help them at all let them -- whoever that might be might be numerous people you have the blood.
My son you have the blood of an American hero.
On your hands I don't know who you are the one of these days the truth will come out I still forgive you that you need to stand up.
All right well -- on this son I would like to -- I mean.
Falwell listen very much connected with -- and by no means is only him but there are many other Americans there right Clinton and bathroom Stevens and -- indoors so.
Just -- usually -- -- -- tell me something New York you looked up to your brother.
Yeah I mean is obviously a good deal older than me a bit growing up his -- as someone who I cannot it was very much he.
How he was is wasn't embodiment of the hero from day one -- obviously.
And -- -- being known for his last act of heroism but it really started from an earlier age than when he was 41 in Libya.
-- it -- salute all of you here.
Chris you've -- you all of expressed a strong Christian faith.
And can you forgive.
I don't know why would be able to I was telling you this in the green room and I'm not kidding I just I would be so angry.
We'll start with -- -- girls in your -- twelve and your fifteen Kenya a lot to ask you know when you lose somebody.
That close to.
God's in control of everything just kind of thing and every day.
And you mr.
-- And began.
Other Christian that we should.
How Jesus would want us to act and that.
Obviously we need to -- Jesus.
-- -- and forgetting and we also want answers you wanna know the truth we did and and the main thing is it is.
He was told to stay in -- why would you say to stand down when he wanted to help and he had the risk is like.
And why if these cries were being heard not only by your son and by others that did risked their lives why didn't.
Why weren't what why would they denied help because your son died seven hours after he's -- women.
You know I can't mention anyone with any heart.
That would watch a battle raged for seven hours knowing that heroes were there that we're going to be slaughtered if you didn't have.
Didn't have helped send him.
As we know the C 130s could have been sent there in less than an hour jets could have been scrambled in minutes from many different parts of -- the globe.
The order was don't help them let them die.
You know I'm sorry.
The people in the military are honorable and when they make -- -- There -- honorable enough to live up to -- part of that now is to defend American lives on American soil from.
All enemies foreign and domestic.
Was American soil by international law and speaking -- an attorney.
By international law and had diplomatic compound is American soil no matter where it's located so we had thirty.
American citizens on American soil this is no different than if it happened in LA or any other city.
It would not.
Take seven hours normally to scramble the jets to send the 130 if this was on American soil in.
Or New York or any other place but -- I don't know why why didn't they do I want the tapes released the tapes that -- your son.
To defy orders to stand down I wanted to they have those tapes they have -- tapes okay they can release them okay.
We're not political I did not vote for either candidate last time I -- to be political would I'm not trying to be put OK okay bit to beep beep.
Political would be dishonor to my son's life and death how ever.
I'm here to honor my son part of the process of honoring -- to forgive but part of the other process is truth and to make sure that justice is pursued.
I hope that it is because.
Justice has to be paid.
