And out Olivia.
Seven weeks after terrorists attacked our consulate -- Ben Ghazi we still do not have the answer senator Lindsey Graham is accusing President Obama -- politics and national security.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Time good evening thank you -- enemy.
-- senator my first time put a story that Jennifer Griffin broke this evening special report Brett bear that eight -- is in custody in and Tunisia.
He was spotted on camera with in at the consulate at the time of the attack and then he was he was picked up and -- he tried to go transfer through an airport there and I.
With false papers turned over to the people of Tunisia.
And that the America and the American authorities have nothing else have access to this man to the asking questions your thoughts are.
Well number -- it would be very disturbing if al-Qaeda.
Operatives in Libya can tell -- al-Qaeda but al-Qaeda operatives in Tunisia.
Finishes they have our regional.
-- -- -- adapt from Tunisia was able to come down to Benghazi Libya that means they're talking to each other in a way where the same before.
But -- -- job then they're twice since Ben Ali was thrown out since the revolution this is where they are spring started.
I know the prime minister very well -- called the Tunisian embassy deny they're gonna give that we name Martha.
I'm stunned to hear that -- -- Asians are denying us access.
To that question this man now I find that very disturbing -- frankly hard to believe.
And animal called the Tunisian officials enough get to the bottom of it.
I'm not so sure we're trying very hard to get to the bottom of it here at home -- the Obama administration's stonewalling the congress in misleading the American people have written.
Almost a -- half a dozen letters to the administration haven't heard one word back.
So is -- commerce issue with the Tunisian authorities will give us access to this menacing -- well I'm gonna find out.
I'm Grimes shot that they're not given us access they work very well the CIA and the ranking Republican.
On our foreign aid subcommittee on our preparations.
You know we're in charge of the money yes someone asked -- -- -- why can't we have access to this.
Person that we believe was involved in attack on our consulate and you know this storm is a terrible thing for America and I appreciate what.
President Obama's doing try to help people -- I wish -- give some attention.
-- Ben Ghazi Libya when it -- mattered there was an al-Qaeda storm brewing for months.
Our consulate was attacked an April attack begin in June.
The British investor was attacked in June.
The British withdrew the Red Cross withdrew from the Gaza a -- -- al-Qaeda storm.
Brewing in building and they evacuated we did not we did nothing to reinforce this consulate.
It became the death trap in the present -- to fund raiser right after this event.
And -- you know he said he was offended by the criticism.
I'm quite frankly offended by this administration.
Not being honest with the American people and sharing any information with -- -- defense -- -- said because there's been some criticism that the United States at least it is thought that that they didn't respond to some -- in -- some methods and met some requests for help on the ground he says -- effect of innocent people in the age without -- the consequence I I know they're also a member of the military reserves -- US -- -- right -- thought about them.
Yeah I think.
There have been a lot of military members be.
Shocked to hear that how many operations have we launched to help comrades in distress not knowing what the outcome would be but -- and that's what we should do.
And here's what the American people -- -- In June our consulate was attacks on June to six they blow hole in the wall at forty people to go -- About a week later the British ambassador's convoy was attacked in the -- Libya guess who came to their aid.
Lieutenant colonel wood and American.
Military member and member of the -- National Guard part of a security team.
Left the American Consulate to come to the -- of the British investor and extracted wounded people out of the convoy while it was being attacked about Qaeda.
I find it very odd that we can have the British and I'm glad we did -- there are best friends in the world.
We were able to help them in June but nobody -- help our people on September 11.
Don't you find that a little odd that we could get to the British convoy in the -- Libya within twenty minutes of being attacked.
In June but we couldn't help them for over seven hours.
I don't September 11 I find that very disturbing.
Tiffany and there's so many unanswered questions and -- President Obama has not sat down to answer questions at a couple questions don't Adam and I responded to it but I'm fifth.
What's going on here.
I think he's I think he's trying to run -- clock.
That the question.
How many there were three request for assistance.
The president told us that he told his people to help those folks provide assistance -- nobody went to their -- why not.
What's the president told that -- April lynching attacks on our consulate why do we leave our consulate open when the British.
And the Red Cross decided to leave in Gaza because it was too dangerous.
How did it become a death trap while we did find -- we did now all the requests for security you don't need an independent panel to address that the president.
Knows whether or not he was informed of the previous attacks in April and June the president knows whether or not anybody tried to help after he ordered them to.
To help these folks in the president cannot possibly believe.
Ten days after this attack this was a a riot based on a mob that never existed.
They're not answering my questions are anyone else's questions because I believe they're trying to run out the clock here.
-- -- -- -- Thank you.
