Two weeks now since super storm sandy has slammed in new York and more than a 125000.
-- -- customers are still without heat and power this morning and the residents of Long Island.
-- not the only ones were angry congressman Peter King wrote a letter to President Obama.
Asking for more federal help and he joins us now nice to see you could -- what has been holed up for two weeks of getting power and -- back to people.
Like to just acted disgraceful and did listen this is not an easy job but the fact is Liberia refuse to communicate with people people -- -- when the -- gonna come back on.
They gave misleading signals.
They've given wrong information.
They're telling people had to have amateur contractor committed certified yes I got a -- -- Brian Kilmeade.
He got the contractors like to shut up sort of wasn't good enough to would change in the signals against hepatitis and people -- from my office to resolve of conflict literally in the middle street I'm Brian apps are Brian's house -- all the neighbors -- with such as one example when you've over a 100000 people still out of power.
Two weeks after this happened in the end of so many missteps so many mistakes and a real arrogant.
This is there any recourse for people in life is for all intents and -- -- -- monopoly in this is who provide new power and the heat on Long Island off obviously lots of states and municipalities have the same Bob what do you do if you're angry with them.
Right now he is under the control of state and I think that after this is settled whenever it is next week to three weeks -- -- -- I think right pass we restructure we have to look at the whole.
Concept knew the state legislature the governor everyone that -- federal involvement fine.
But there's obviously those words and responsive.
-- sources as is not attuned to what have -- done in the 21 century who would have thought we'd see.
In the in the -- -- entry on Long Island hundreds of thousands people out of.
-- for so long it's just is wrong.
At Christie's it -- life but that's sort of -- faceless.
And to see the Long Island power authority -- there are people behind Lebanon to be answering questions the CEO with somebody and Michael Kirby.
We also have a list of the executive staff.
None of whom are answering the phone because -- -- -- -- but they can't get any answers but here are the names what do you want President Obama to do.
All right when there is such as more federal assistance which we do need those -- you argue Army Corps of Engineers in larger numbers than they board their power back to Afghanistan to Iraq and they had a -- and yeah that's the extent of Clinton in fantasy that they did three of debate partition which plan helped get that back on but I -- -- larger federal presence in effect make light truck.
Coordinate that with with the federal plan and it's been in effect have a federal master plan and -- -- -- the -- itself to that because like you can't do -- on -- Let's move to the issue of Ben Ghazi as you know David Petraeus was set or release was called.
To just fine frat house investigators this week but he's now embroiled.
In this scandal and instead the acting CIA director Michael -- will go is that good enough.
No it's not among the intelligence committee Mike -- -- the chairman he'll make the final decision.
But my strong recommendation is General Petraeus has to testify if not this week -- as traumatic for him -- a great American.
But we can't find what happened -- -- -- -- -- -- -- David Petraeus testifies he was the center of at all he isn't absolutely essential witness -- a mature guy.
Good the fact is we have to have someone who was who -- is the largest piece in the puzzle.
Also -- secretary of state Hillary Clinton was asked to come in and speak but she says -- she has scheduled a scheduling conflict.
She will be going to Australia.
Is certain way to.
-- -- to answer questions and over doesn't come to that effective she also I believe ultimately have to testify.
Because was a state you have so many people on the ground State Department people on the ground CIA people on the ground or sending messages back to Washington on the night of the attack.
Also before the attack saying that there was none of security and -- -- he -- somebody coming -- talking points the Susan Rice who was directly in the chain of command.
With the state to Bob which turn out to be totally misleading -- that Secretary Clinton.
-- betrays both are actually essential witnesses.
Are you one of the people who finds the timing of David Petraeus is resignation.
Fishy or do you think this is just an unfortunate confluence of events for him.
I have a hard time believing this whole story first of -- how -- email issue becomes an FBI Matta.
How was investigated for so many months how -- wasn't until election night.
That the FBI suddenly realized that it -- David Petraeus if they're investigating -- for three or four months notably the first thing you know they would have found out.
If they did find it out picture -- immediately put into the president's attention.
As a matter of national security so none of this adds up that that if it does it's the most amazing said -- coincidences I've ever heard of.
Lot of questions answered concentrator king thanks so much rebellion that -- -- great to see you are still.
