Back -- Benghazi now congress is vowing to investigate.
House CIA talking points about the attack on the American Consulate -- -- were changed.
Being made public.
Former CIA director David Petraeus reportedly told lawmakers in closed door hearings last week.
That the reference to al-Qaeda and -- -- Syria which she claims was in the CIA assessment.
Somehow wasn't there anymore.
In the final version but he has -- happen.
Democrats say they don't believe that the talking points were change for political reasons but top Republicans are calling this is Watergate level cover up.
-- know the narrative was wrong in the intelligence was right we're gonna find out who.
Made changes in the original statement.
Until we do I really think it's unwarranted.
To make accusations.
Here now your tiresome Peter King chairman of the house homeland security committee Carson came good morning good to have you back.
Diet my sentences think he's very good that we are gonna find out who made that change do you think we -- What we have to idea -- shouldn't be the obligation congress obviously we'll do that we -- -- we -- store.
But I don't know why the administration -- Longo just didn't come forward and say.
That these changes are made and give the reasons why.
The longer they wait the longer they delay -- longer they try to confuse things the more people think that something was up that they have some of the motive for doing it.
That's who made the should be very easy they have to know who did it.
And this isn't.
-- shouldn't we are dealing with Soviet despises -- -- -- done within the administration.
Probably in the White House and they have to don't over everything everyone's fortunes when -- sheets of paper is a kind of force would be very simple find out who did it again.
Like I raising it should be pretty clear she say but for some reason I don't want to say.
At this point now the latest iteration of wife Susan Rice went on those shows.
And said what she said which was you know basically -- -- that they thought it was a sort of spontaneous uprising.
Is that she couldn't save the rest of the story she couldn't say anything about credit rob top Syria because that part was classified as it make any sense GO.
That those are in his nation's their names being used in context of this why why that would be classified information.
No because -- would be given the sources and message when we -- how we got the information I'm South Korea.
Is very active in that area so wouldn't surprise anyone we concluded that Jaafari was involved.
-- also an administration change your story gives up somehow there was saying that Susan Rice gave all the information that she was given by the intelligence community -- that this is what she was told.
Now -- say what you told two different stories and -- with one rather than the other which is very -- He wasn't saying until now.
Why do you think you know in the midst of everything that General Petraeus is going through right now he really wanted it to testify.
As to what was in their assessment the CIA assessment.
And he did -- on Friday.
I believe you showed as part of his legacy he wanted to be clear that.
Whatever confusion may have been at the beginning that when the CIA sent its statement to the White House.
It was accurate I was focused and was on point and since then you found people like Joseph Biden.
Strong intelligence community under the Boston remember during -- available for Ryan.
He's so we just said this was -- just said what the intelligence community gave -- And every avert every other -- statements since then.
Has been blaming the intelligence community which is that -- primarily the CIA I think David Petraeus wanted to make it clear that the CIA did have the story right.
And loose change somewhere else along the line -- had to be someone within the administration.
We just gonna go from here I -- in our are we gonna see Susan Rice testify about what she -- and will congress have hearings public hearings what what what form is is gonna take at this point you think.
-- of the intelligence committee and Mike Rogers is the chairman he indicated yesterday.
Also senator Feinstein.
It that you shouldn't have to go -- Wallace.
-- -- for the country.
And also for our whole foreign policy.
If we just had the administration be honest and forwards -- what happened.
But Susan Rice has testified that yes and that's we have do we get the story we have -- the bottom line because this goes beyond Susan Rice -- goes beyond Republican Democrat.
We have four.
Solid good Americans were killed Wednesday.
They were murdered and we have an obligation to them their families our country to find -- what happened and to have these roadblocks thrown away by the administration.
Getting huge in the white has to do with somebody else may have done it.
And again that try to blame the head the CIA which was -- -- -- they had it right.
Very quickly Peter -- can -- got it now.
If you get a chance to question Hillary Clinton what would you ask her what's your biggest question for her.
I would ask so what reports they got from the field let night's State Department people on the ground whether they send back.
And also says Susan Rice is in a chain of command what the State Department tells Susan Rice before she went on television.
Passion Peter King -- will file you all of this of course thank you very much sir good to see this morning.
Thank you want to.
