And senator Graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after make.
And I'm happy to have that discussion would.
But for them to go after.
The UN ambassador.
Who had nothing to do -- doesn't.
And with simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received.
And -- to -- besmirch her reputation.
Or write to us Senator John McCain -- who was talking to reach out.
To the president getting answers from the present senator -- -- what did they get that.
Well I think it's it's unfortunate because.
First of all if she had nothing to do woods and Garcia pars you're an investor and she shouldn't have been out on all the Sunday shows that.
Sunday some five days afterwards stating.
This was a spontaneous demonstration.
That was triggered by -- hateful video which -- turned out to be actually -- there was -- Demonstration so I -- I don't know how you.
Logically assume that she had nothing to do with the diocese since it was the White House and had her out on all the Sunday.
I'm not trying to get into a mono mono with the present and I states I am trying to find out answers to that result.
Situation that resulted in the death of four brave Americans.
And obviously there have been so many conflicting stories and so much conflicting information.
Including the -- United States at the end of the second debate would Mitt Romney saying I said it was a terrorist attack in the Rose Garden.
On the twelfth when that was not true and that night he went on sixty minutes and told Steve -- croft.
He didn't know who would watch that he had no idea what caused it and so he either didn't tell the truth when -- -- and in this second debate.
Or he didn't tell the truth on sixty minutes I think I have it -- the exact quote here somewhere and it's it's really.
You know it the American people deserve answers.
Louisiana he had a reflecting senator on and on making us you know ambassador rice the issue and you're going to have to have proper assessment.
-- -- I -- -- I again I don't I don't know what to think because I don't think someone who.
Gave false information when there was correct information -- -- this was five days afterwards.
When I was on the Sunday show which was.
Face the nation.
Right after she spoke.
The president of the legends the -- legislative assembly came on and said this is al-Qaeda this was a terrorist attack.
So right there it was refuted them.
Obviously -- come in since the attack in the intervening five -- that.
It's clearly indicated that it wasn't just a spontaneous demonstration so she is responsible but the main thing was the president United States.
Is responsible in Houston and we need to find out.
Exactly what happened we owe that to their families and we also have got to do what we tend to make sure that it doesn't happen again.
What would you do it sees his pick for secretaries.
I would oppose her unless she has some logical explanation I will listen to anybody.
You know stellar side of the story.
But I clearly right now I would be -- because the American people were told false information -- her at the direction of the White House.
What would you think if it was senator John.
I I think we'd obviously wanted to advise and consent to.
Senator John Kerry didn't come within a -- of being present -- United States as you know and I've known for many years I haven't agreed with -- among a number of issues but.
You know as you and I are constantly reminded I'm not the president so I do -- how -- do give some.
Some latitude to present Heinz.
There are a lot of people looked at.
What the president did yesterday and said yesterday.
And that indicated -- -- cheap shots at at and view.
As as if to frame it you know we can't pick on me speaking on -- Susan writes.
Well I think I think that if it.
If he reviewed my comments over the last several weeks I think most of my comments were directed.
What did what did the president know.
When did he know it and what did he do about it would win these -- and win this report came in as a result of a meeting on August 15.
That said we don't believe that we can words to this effect we don't believe that we can.
I was standing concentrated attack on the consulate.
What happened what happened there should the -- United States have.
Have known about that -- two attacks on the consulate.
In April and June the attempted assassination of the British ambassador.
All those things we should -- known and then of course during why wasn't there military.
Capabilities in place god knows we've got a lot of it in that part of the world.
It was September 11 there had already been warnings.
Why wasn't there a military capability there why did it take seven hours so all of these questions need cancers.
And I'm not as I say I'm not trying to have a confrontation.
But I do believe that the American people -- -- answers particularly.
From a pure political standpoint be honest with you why he would say what he said at the end of the second debate which was clearly not true.
To some eighty million people you know.
Well senator thank you very much for taking the time and I guess those -- you we would like to senator don't like the senator I think it is fair to say he's not one.
Who avoids confrontation.
What -- to -- deflect on certain people given this he he is always up for the fight.
