-- Obama administration deliberately stonewalling about Libya as we said a group of Republican senators is demanding answers today.
Republican whip Jon Kyl joins us Canadian -- Good evening Greta and I started.
And I started senator Evan at least about seven letters and Senator McCain -- Lindsey Graham -- it animated Sarah NN.
They don't get answered and they've been going out over a period of time -- these letters just sort of that's futile gesture or will something happen from.
No I've read the -- they asked precisely the right questions and must just respond to a couple of things have occurred already this -- Personal Catherine Herridge who you interviewed has done incredibly good reporting on the story from day one in fact.
David Ignatius in the Washington Post yesterday wrote a piece in which he complemented Fox News for raising all of these important questions which he said had to be answered.
And then he listed a group of the questions some of what you've you've raced here.
And he also says that the timeline of events should be provided before the election not after the election and Greta if I could make that point right now.
You have so many questions about the commander in chief and what he did or what he didn't do whether his orders were clear.
That this has to be cleared -- before the election so we he.
The people who employ the commander in chief.
Can make a decision about whether we want to rehire him and I'm just -- according to congressman shapers of the order that the president allegedly gave that he said he gave.
May not have been clear and one of the first things and military doctrine of course is commander's intent.
The people who follow the commander's orders need to know what his intentions are.
If his order was not clear we need to know that.
If it was clear we need to know why it wasn't carried out because presumably.
It wasn't carried out were there would have been action to protect the people in getting it in Ben -- and Greta gonna make one other point.
Catherine's report about the -- left out one other thing up according to her reporting the cable also noted the fact.
And in in the run up to all of these events.
There -- a question about whether or not the Libyan forces themselves could provide protection and the cable said.
That the the security officer at the the council and didn't think.
That the Libyans had the capability of doing it that these al-Qaeda affiliates didn't pay any attention to them that they didn't respect them at all.
And yet when there was a call for help during the events as they were transpiring.
Our forces had to wait about twenty minutes at least.
For the authority to go forward there.
And in this was only I I'm not sure maybe 63 people and most.
They had to wait that long while our government checked with the Libyan forces to see whether they could show up and do any good and of course they couldn't so eventually.
Our guys were told to go ahead one of whom was killed.
There're so many things about this that need answered the preparation beforehand that the security beforehand that didn't happen.
When we knew that there had been threats we knew that there were warnings there have been requests for more security -- all denied.
The events that transpired on that horrible evening.
Where there are too many unanswered questions about what kind of -- the president gave and whether or not people complied with those orders and then some and we haven't talked about.
But I talked -- here in matters -- follow up the fact that obviously we're not following up very well because the president doesn't wanna have to send anybody to Guantanamo.
Or some other country for interrogation.
For one of the issues you raised a minute about the fact that Kevin did you know before election -- -- -- I was talking to speaker Gingrich of the night on the air and I thought that it was you know quote my -- -- is unfortunate this happens just about the time the election because I was gonna -- politics.
Speaker Gingrich pointed out to me that this has been going on now for about seven weeks and it's a fact that there hasn't haven't been answers in the administration which has -- up against the election.
Which you know -- which I think is a very good -- good points -- not in the hasn't been discussed that we actually since the bombings of the embassies in.
In East Africa in 199798.
We actually have an organization designed to sort of war game out strategies if our embassies are attacked.
I don't know where where they were or where they fall into this because.
You know I certainly would have engaged them immediately see what was the best you know what -- -- a Smart thing whether military action should happen or not but.
There are a lot of unanswered questions in the senator or not I think the last word on that but I do look at comebacks -- as -- -- more things unfold.
Be happy to bring -- thanks --
