Thanks this is the key states.
The FB -- -- meanwhile is finally on the ground in Tunisia thanks to two Republican United States senate President Obama didn't make it happen.
It was Republican senator Saxby and -- was.
And senator Lindsey Graham who did that and they both did it in two days so the good news tonight the FBI is in Tunisia -- the finally question in person.
The Tunisian man caught on video at the Ben Ghazi consulate during the terror attacks so.
How come two Republican US senators could get done in two days but the president United States could not get done in weeks.
Senator Lindsey Graham joins -- -- Good evening.
So what is the explanation I would think -- all due respect to -- the United States senate that if you are the president states you have they have more muscle than you do if you're a member of the US senate and that the FBI and try to talk this man Tunisia.
Tunisia has said no.
And then you and that's senator chant let's get into -- two nights ago and.
Viola you could talk to him.
-- -- rural letter.
Three days two days ago to the and bastard US ambassador Tunisian ambassador -- United States saying that this is a defining moment our relationship -- the ranking Republican on the foreign aid Appropriations Subcommittee -- Tunisia well another prime minister.
And now within two days were able to get the FB out on the ground I don't think the Tunisian government from making this person available to be interviewed -- Law enforcement officials are investigative team.
It's not enough to write questions yet to be on the ground to look people in the -- and Tunisia came through and two days after the letter here we are.
Well yes but it means and -- it's quite extraordinary because we of the investigation has been stuck and my hat.
Goes off do you forget it done for big up the -- Ryan with a but the pres United States I you know I suspect.
Has just as much influence if not more than two US senators and so what is your donation for the -- that you guys had the jump into this.
Well my belief is that this administration is trying to run out the clock when it comes to Ben -- This is a story that changes -- today.
What do we know we know that before the attack.
In April and June of this year at the consulate was attacked twice.
We know that the British withdrew their.
Closer consulate after the British investor was attacked in June.
We know the Red Cross closed their office and -- Ghazi after the attack.
On the Red Cross office we know that on August the fifteenth investors Stephens and this -- security team met.
And discuss the fact that TN al-Qaeda groups have been identified to be roaming around in Ghazi.
And that they told the State Department Secretary Clinton -- Augusta sixteenth.
If there's a coordinated al-Qaeda attack the consulate will be override.
So that's what we know before the attack.
During the -- that we know that 78 hours goes by and not one military person.
Was able to help these four people for over seven hours on September -- eleventh.
And after the attack the administration for almost two weeks blame this on a video -- robbed mob and arrived they never existed.
The president has been a -- when it comes to being Ghazi -- leadership.
They've been denying and deceiving the public and the fact that they haven't pushed hard to get access to this witness is just part of the narrative are running out the clock.
But here it's it's actually extraordinary because unity you said that he was going to get us answers and I'm not -- yeah right.
And I'm not suggesting that did the FBI's interrogation -- made public.
But it -- makes a lot more sense to get him in a time close to the event to rather than waiting three years -- three months or whatever.
And -- if it's a minute say it's extraordinary that we would not have want to get in their quick alert even that the FBI the FBI director I'm surprised he didn't hound the president ya I wanna get in there I would I -- I want our people -- -- you wanna find out what happened in this murder.
Let's move fast now and especially since anybody else was involved is going to scatter.
Well it this -- been the story of Libya for months.
The people on the ground in Libya are begging and pleading for additional security.
They're being denied additional security military and civilian security US's security.
Because we won it quote normalize relationships.
With Libyan government that didn't exist in -- god see this have been a travesty of Eros is spending confidence -- -- -- -- -- our government.
It's been a lack of leadership by the president President Obama isn't -- now when it comes to the states that true state of al-Qaeda.
Al-Qaeda is alive and well throughout the mideast there scanner attacking.
And our attack on our consulate the -- Gaza Libby is exhibit a of a failed foreign policy of leading from behind.
But you could see this coming for months the people on August the fifteenth.
Had a meeting and said we cannot withstand a coordinated attack.
But Jimenez and there's that there's all the sort of alarms -- red lights -- Sid dear Bob the attack in June or whatever in terms of -- security.
But the thing that but then we go into sort of stage two which is what has been -- what has happened since -- -- and it's not only that no one bothered to try to see this Tunisian guy and the and we need it if two US senators can make a phone call send a letter.
And get his contact with the -- United States can't that stunning but there's even more than that is that the FBI didn't visit to Ben Ghazi after the attacks some time.
And then left.
But -- fast but fast forward to last week October 26 foreign policy journalists go in there -- the the places and that people would walk in all over the place and looking at.
And they recovered documents that are critical of this invested like I the FBI didn't -- like nobody even care don't really care of the four Americans are dead it's a shabby investigation we're not talking to people.
Four people denied that any -- do you see that kind of investigation and -- local homicide case.
Filed the people of the United States.
Who really do care about our national security.
Well I understand the poor leadership by this president.
Governor Christie said Alice -- three times by the president what can -- -- to help the people of New Jersey.
The president has taken on a leadership role when it comes to hurricanes sandy.
He's been a law when it comes to Libya from day one until now.
There's really been no effort by this administration.
To help the people when they were under attack.
This administration ignored.
Many warnings coming from being -- Libya about the state of play they've been telling us in the entire world al-Qaeda has been dismantled.
It was clear to anybody who is listening to what was happening in Libya that al-Qaeda was taking big guys -- over.
The -- -- the United States let the consulate in Libya become a death trap.
During the attack he said he ordered people to help those in Libya.
That they have come to the -- of the people on Libya not one person came to there a debate -- his order -- everything give the order.
After the attack he's been making excuses -- have no absolute -- -- bearing to the real facts.
The person -- blame above all else as president Barack Obama.
He is oversold.
The dismantling of al-Qaeda he spiked the ball when bin Laden was killed and created a sense of security that doesn't exist.
Any let these four people on Libya going -- many death trap and didn't do anything about it.
But definitely go back to -- -- at once all that happened.
And these and Americans want to know what happened on repeat any murder investigation -- is he doesn't bother this day to be directed the FBI look if you -- -- gain and it's Tunisia and talking and give me a cop on the phone call so that two US senators eight weeks from now don't have to do my heavy -- and outsourcing -- US citizens in this.
Let's let let's just walk through how hard would have been for the president to pick up the phone to to the prime minister of Tunisia and say.
We're not asking you to turn him over to us we just want access to this witness we want to be good allies were helping your country get back on your feet.
Four Americans were murdered the first investor in 33 years I want to get to the bottom of this mr.
prime minister we need your help.
I had one conversation.
48 hours later the FBI has on the ground.
It wasn't that hard there is no sense of urgency about this investigation.
They're trying to run out the plot there was this sense of.
You -- sense of urgency.
They don't think that you know ordinance that they became -- because yeah I -- BioWare and I and I don't get Asia.
T know what if you -- the facts he's a lawyer right moving and really fast if you've got someone who was a suspect I'm seed who was part of this you know the persons in custody.
We don't sit around sit let's talk til next year you move right now any detective in any homicide case in any Communist country's gonna tell you don't just ignored and look the other way and let's sit like this.
They don't want the truth to come out about -- -- Libya before next Tuesday because of it does come out and it becomes crystal clear to the American people.
It was show a failure of leadership by President Obama that is foreign policy is not working that al-Qaeda has not.
Not been dismantle their very much on the rise and leading from behind is not viable strategy to make a safe in a dangerous world.
That's why you're not gonna find any thing other than pulling teeth from this administration that's why they're not taken up the phone and -- -- people.
Would any other person would do if they wanted to get to the bottom of it they don't want to get to the bottom of -- before the election they want the election to come.
Then no world that worry about Libya later today they think that for Fox News.
Thank god for other outlets like CBS thank god for the house oversight committee if it weren't for a -- being -- and some people in the house and some people in the senate we would know anything about.
A -- -- this president promised transparency.
And all the late signed adding thing is to just just have brave Americans come forward and -- the.
Truth in spite of what the administration's trying to do.
An -- on foreign policy who discovered the documents last week in Ben Ghazi the wanted the FBI didn't bother to see your pick up -- acting the last word on that -- thank you -- Thank you.
