There are new allegations now the high level cover up over the events leading to the deadly terrorist attack in Ben Ghazi Libya.
Senate minority whip Jon -- making that suggestion yesterday.
On the talk chips.
I think your three questions that have to be answered why weren't the warnings about the need for security.
Why weren't they requests for help during the terrorist attack.
And why did the administration think it had to cover up all of things that occurred before.
By putting out to the American people the narrative that I think will turn out to be absolutely false for three critical questions -- KT McFarland is our Fox's national security analysts and good morning to.
To you is senator Kyl on the something -- -- -- and.
-- they've lied throughout.
They they denied security request prior to.
They Dick denied requests for reinforcements during the attack and they continue to cover up about it now the question is they still need your.
My stories that you don't know what happened now -- the question I Manhattan is not what happened why didn't happen why did they feel they have to cover from the very beginning.
Because I think their entire middle east policy -- turned out to be an abject failure put.
It is that -- the case and that would have to be a decision that was made in the early hours of this.
Attack and then Gaza would you agree with absolutely -- here's why here's the mindset is they had going into this everything that George Bush did the Obama administration said -- do the opposite -- established -- -- from the front will be from behind.
George Bush -- -- on the ground in Iraq we're gonna go in from the air in Libya.
George Bush used contractors -- superb -- security wanted to use those Libyan guys to provide security in Libya.
The problem was -- Libyans went up to the job.
Think the administration has looked at all these countries they've helped topple dictators.
Now they would dictators that they were pro American dictators and they've kept the peace with Israel for forty years.
What do you now seen in this place.
You're seeing country after country either -- fans or electing an anti American anti Islam.
Muslim Brotherhood -- -- them what you're arguing is that they took all these decisions and flip them on.
There -- 480 degree turn yeah how's that working now with our -- -- friend I think they've got away with it so far.
-- -- calls for what what really happened and Ben Ghazi you know you and Fox News have been carrying out the call.
No -- no other mainstream media's really paid attention I didn't even pay attention.
And -- it became a sex scandal with David Petraeus sent everybody paid attention a little bit but mostly about the sex scandal -- here we are ten weeks later.
Still don't have any explanation of what happened.
Or why it happened or who did it ultimately there will be hearings ultimately people will come forward and you will know what really happened.
But will it be too late I don't know -- to meet the bigger question is why is the Middle East now in flames OK and -- as a regional question you -- is change entirely.
And what you would argues that we're on the road losing the entire Middle East we -- would president said we're want to pivot to Asia we're getting out of the Middle East we've gotten out of a rock.
We are we so have bases there but slowly but surely we're withdrawing from that part of the world.
Now what is taking our place all the countries that have relied on us and several without -- to back us up.
There are gonna start making accommodations are -- to accommodate to the growing regional power.
Which is -- run and they're going to worry about the Muslim Brotherhood in their own countries just watched Jordan will be next in.
Jordan next Jordan Amman Jordan Amman Jordan a monarchy.
-- -- country that has had a peace agreement with Israel.
They have a Muslim Brotherhood very active in Jordan and there are now protests against the -- Is true there is a power over vacuum in that region and the world back here though.
Senator McCain was talking about Susan Rice yes and he is suggesting now that she should testify because we need a -- out.
Now some of Parse that and suggested he is softened his language.
Do you see -- that.
Now I think what -- really wasn't here as guest Susan Rice and confirmation hearings because.
If she has confirmation hearings for us the first question they're going to ask -- who.
I was talking points who rewrote the CIA memos -- -- and her -- she'll have to tell the truth but -- -- stop with Susan -- because Lindsey Graham was out yesterday saying I blame the president -- everybody else for what happened Libya I think what the administration wants to avoid its congressional hearings of any sort into what really how is that possible thing you bet it is if they have a confirmation hearing.
A Secretary Rice the first question she's going to be asked is who wrote those talking points for you why did you go out.
Even days later when it was obvious to every housewife in America but it was a terrorist attack why did you go out.
Continue to blaming YouTube video.
Why did you continue to say it was a flash -- from KKT thank you there's a lot more questions on this as you just continue to scratch the surface for.
What is quickly developing into -- change the region thank you came to get to see you there and OK Martha.
