Ambassador rice was saying that it was BI and the -- congress is getting kind of mixed signals to.
Adam and toss our national security correspondent Washington has written on this extensively.
These discussions -- gonna occur when Petraeus -- before the intelligence committee.
I'm gonna deal with this full scope of things and in addition to who knew what win and how was it communicated to Washington.
At and which part of Washington do what wins the White House CIA the FBI differently apparently.
They'll be discussions of how was security handled in big -- There was a large security contingent with the CIA group there.
There was a -- sort of informal relationship with the consulate the consulate relied on that security team that was part of the CIA.
What it was that sufficient to assure security for the consulate.
Can you call in somebody from another agency to provide you security if you need it suddenly -- can you do so efficiently all these things are going to be discussed.

Like this I might call the director of the CIA right or -- and CIA.
Is the one who was also saying this was about a movie yeah or you get a -- -- you get -- from the White House who got a from the CIA it may not been directly you know the White House says that's not what it was -- so I just wonder if the line might become I don't know.

Or was the White House playing down the possibility of an -- Qaeda attack because this was right before the election.
They didn't want to make it -- that al-Qaeda was on the rise again.
These are all kind of questions aren't gonna play out some of this is gonna be the fog of war -- some of it might be.
