Tempers boiling over on Capitol Hill Republican lawmakers blasting Obama administration -- Ben Ghazi.
Congressman Dana roar -- telling the house foreign affairs committee.
This administration has lied to the American people about this tragedy the -- dishonesty in all of this is breathtaking.
Congressman rob record -- has been any -- Really not -- say they -- to be specific what do you -- -- about.
Well we know that for six days after the attack and we just heard from.
-- member of the intelligence committee who saw the film and they knew within a matter of hours a -- and if not right away.
That this was an organized arm to hit.
Job by al-Qaeda probably -- -- and organize commanded effort to murder our people yet for six days after that.
They were telling the American people that this was movie rage this -- a crowd getting out of control.
In order -- and then they murdered our ambassador or rather than al-Qaeda and what does that do.
That means we were not worried about radical Islamic terrorism it said were worried about a crowd.
Getting out of control our whole lives they knew it was a lie when they said -- when they sent out ambassador rice.
For all the talk shows they knew that was not the truth.
When you tell something that's not the -- is -- American people especially in the middle of the crisis we shouldn't expect to get away with -- can be forgiven.
What this -- -- -- -- -- just bits and pieces leaking out of these closed hearings which is why I wish they'd be more on the open I think that Washington there's attendant tensing up over classify thinks of the people get exploded when we.
We really you know there are certain things don't have to all be classified maybe some but not off.
And apparently what I'm hearing is that the the CIA claims that they -- al-Qaeda in the sort of talking points that went to the White House that more than fed to ambassador rice and then she went to talk shows and somehow cheating get the al-Qaeda talking points -- there's somewhere along the road again.
Only a political the president himself was of the United Nations talking about movie rage.
People throughout the administration were talking about movie rage when they knew damn well or at least the White House and the CIA knew damn well.
That this was an al-Qaeda attack what is it terrorist attack in fact.
Sixty minutes sat on their interview with the president where they tried -- say was this is an Islamic terrorist attack.
And he couldn't get the words out of his mouth.
There's something going on there -- -- -- what president yet whether the words Muslim terrorist attack.
-- what I was -- -- I have I was suggested someone at the White House.
-- perhaps I don't know sure right.
I think that she did it when I can't believe that and that ambassador rice to make the decision to exclude al-Qaeda and go I'm though so I don't make yourself look good really I think in some ways -- it was -- I think she got hung up to drive.
-- this is not ambassador rice was set up by the White House for whatever reason and the president himself is right when he says don't blame her.
Can't blame the president adds it's -- for him then.
To utilize her to lie to the American people and then to nominate Peter -- -- -- float her name as a possible secretary of state.
-- -- I'm -- I tell you where do falter though.
And that's not asking more questions now because it's you know EE EEO even within a day or 2 -- -- -- -- pretty much suspected -- of the -- -- had all the earmarks of an MB people's credit so I would have expected that she would follow through that's question -- -- state Colin Powell.
Went before the United Nations and heated that's very many questions and and he talked about weapons of mass destruction that didn't turn up in Iraq so yes I am a little bit suspicious of these government employees being set out.
To talk essentially give a message the American people that frankly isn't -- I think there's every reason to worry about that just because secretary Powell had been.
Put in the same spot.
Doesn't -- -- -- as -- defense daddy right and doesn't excuse this president.
From sending out someone to lie in the middle of a crisis and we cannot trust the president United States.
To not go out and intentionally mislead the American people and what were his motives.
He just can't get people upset.
About radical Islamic terrorism.
What's what's this it.
He does not want people to believe in that he should I go back to the whole visit his act keeper of the four murdered Americans and an injured Americans and I can tell you.
That if there -- four murdered Americans in this city.
That was unsolved in the on the front page of the Washington Post.
Every single day and we just.
Doesn't call -- bumps in the road from the referred to these these these dead Americans as a bump in the road to better relations with Islam.
The fact is that there are there's an element.
Among Muslims of the world not not even a majority honor winner and -- close to majority of Muslims.
But there is a group of Muslims in the world who want to do us harm and we have to be aware of that if you're determined to defend against it.
This president is trying to minimize that make it go away well.
I don't know what I would also like to know.
What the CIA was doing there mean right here and there is a huge contingency the CA and I recognize the CIA is important function to keep us safe.
But there are so many bizarre aspects of this even the fact that the security seems not to been provided by the State Department.
But rather by the CAA -- I can't help -- be suspicious.
What in the world are we doing that we supplying weapons to the Syrian rebels are we collecting weapons in the Libyan rebels another we're trying to -- -- -- but they know there's a lot and there's there's a lot.
That's not told that's and I think -- trees you'll be suspicious of so much of this.
-- we need to be suspicious and we don't know what what those things are but we do know.
That there was a screw up in terms of how we were going to defend our our our diplomats.
Obviously -- their -- And we check we have got what was -- the Democrats tried to politicize this by claiming it was budget cuts by the Republicans.
-- -- of course.
The -- State Department official who actually made the decision.
Went on and under testimony sworn testimony said.
Budget considerations played none of that but then we got to know also what was the is that what what happened during the attack and we just heard mr.
But then we have to know.
It is the president felt.
And I'm do I said he lied he intentionally.
Misled the American people that it was a -- most I'm terrorists who had done that.
Simple question why didn't -- why new Bob restriction caught Tunisia and say let -- talk to the person the CIA caught on tape that they don't think the last word on that one.
