Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight is a Libyan situation another Watergate that is subject of this evening's talking points memo today on Capitol Hill.
Senate Intelligence Committee began hearings about the murder.
Of the ambassador to Libya and three other Americans in Benghazi on 9/11 as you may know the Obama administration will not define exactly what happen.
And the press has been largely negligent in pursuing the story well now the testimonies under oath so -- serious.
There are two ways this thing could go first -- -- -- Watergate type spectacle with coverups and bogus statements of the American people.
Or second it could be a big nothing a human error which spiraled out of control.
The problem is compounded by the president's refusal to define anything he continues to say this investigation.
So he can't even give us basic facts like.
When were you told Mr.
President about the attack and -- in -- -- An answer to that question cannot possibly impact any investigation nevertheless mr.
Obama refuses to provide.
That is -- all kinds of conspiracy theories and now you have the -- a situation added to the Max.
At a press conference today reporter from the McClatchy news service -- Senator John McCain is the fact that General Petraeus is mistress had kept secret documents in her possession.
Was it more serious than the entire Libyan debacle.
Well I say was great respect.

Okay it's four dead Americans his four dead Americans is not a social life not a social life I'm answering your question.
Okay you want me answer your question when -- Which do you want.
It is OK there's four dead Americans.
Senator McCain obviously feels very strongly that there is government malfeasance involved in Libyan chaos but that has yet to be proved.
However the senate is doing the right thing by holding hearings trying to get information.
Out to we the people I mean look at it this way back in 1972.
Richard Nixon -- editing -- -- with a low level political break it.
If the press have not been aggressive Nixon.
Would have got away with it.
And certainly the break and at the Watergate Hotel was not nearly as important.
As failing to define -- terrorist attack that killed four Americans.
Pres Obama made a mistake in not getting ahead of the story he should have given us the facts weeks ago he chose not to.
And the press let him get away with.
But now the -- coming down.
As a -- it.
And that's a memo now for the top.
