All right time for the -- -- now bill Daley former FBI office.
And Tom Ruskin and -- -- looking scary is alongside Paul Grice he doesn't fear anybody -- anything.
Thank goodness that's why he's able to stay up.
Let let's get back to the question of being -- Susan Rice up on the hill today.
Trying to explain.
Her clothes in the statements on it trying to that as we said make friends and influence people.
If you look one of those senators that she is meeting bill what's the first question you would Oscar.
And when asked -- did she see the classified version of what -- CIA had put forward.
And was she aware of what that said.
Prior to it being brought in price of those told -- play -- this talk.
Point being changed so much you know was she aware of of what they put forward and with the they have said which is that it was they believe -- was a terrorist attack and then from there -- got called down and got.
They get watered down as it went further got a TV that I like to know did -- know that and then did she make a conscious decision or another suggested to work.
That then that may not be played up on.
I would want to know.
What she knew and why she admits what questions it was obvious.
To anyone on the ground that it -- closed to reporters we asking the questions on that Sunday show.
There's something else it happened at that consulate.
And that's something else had transpired.
I would want to know did she knows there was a satellite overhead I mean if I were her I would have asked those questions I would have been satisfied -- just -- declassified.
What public information at that point in time.
And who gave -- the talking points and -- from the White House actually gave of the talking points to go only shows that someday and say that's why isn't.
Yeah and I also think Jonathan is that you know there's no word mentioned that you could potentially be replacement for Hillary Clinton at some point -- You know so I think this is really first litmus test I think this where questions are being asked to start to develop with the characters and the person and this is someone.
That could even be put forward as a candidate for that position.
Right Judy was saying just certain Republicans saying well even if you -- a good soldier doing what you were told -- -- kind of person we want a second mistake.
Can't imagine Hillary Clinton always being a good soldier is maybe a reason she didn't go on the Sunday talk shows.
She really I -- him -- -- -- intelligence in the drone overhead she may have known that they were watching in real time.
What was happening and why into CIA tell the US ambassador.
To the United Nations exactly what happened you want to have the classified.
Conversation because she qualified support she's definitely been cleared so why didn't -- why did they tell are and why didn't she ask.
Well I -- Why she was there at all I mean why her is that the most interesting question she didn't work at the State Department there's no particular reason -- it was.
Hey Al yeah I don't know if states wanted to know immediately Giuliani usually someone to -- is easier than it perhaps you come across as being credible you've probably come across as being someone who.
Was maybe a step removed in -- and may not have been considered in the inner circle but as we well know.
Is that she would have access to classified documents that's why I would like to know what did you see did she make a decision to someone else suggest.
That'd be talked about and in different way or taught -- that just fell off.
Behind you by the way I hope our new ideas you know -- These things.
I think you'll -- -- a tough tough.
Pets are talking about it in the in the police department law enforcement they -- the body count to you put enough bodies between yourself and who's put out there.
So maybe they figured Susan Rice if it really did -- the crap hit the fan and maybe at that point in time they sit well she's expendable.
It's not knowing that the president in his mind was thinking about her as a replacement for Hillary Clinton.
And -- sitting here and we don't know how high that decision went right to put her on the television -- And I mean I think at this point let people may suggest that this is but you know politicizing the issue and and and -- as politics as usual.
And I think you discuss nearly segment perhaps there's some information that is you know but my view is is that.
I do want to know who this person zone and others if this person to be put forward for any other position.
You know are they incredible -- they run truthful are they being candid and transparent.
That's the kind of person you -- -- these positions and we don't want to think that.
Any of those agencies State Department CIA FBI is new and he agencies -- being politicized by people saying things just because.
The -- people say you should say it.
Teresa Hilton writing in on our live chat he is says what I'd like to -- -- Who was in the situation room when this was going down is that something will have enough.
I think we know a portion of it a very good that's come out public I don't know little militaries in front and I know that CIA people as well as administration officials -- in the sit room.
Watching the drone overhead and watching this actually happen in real time.
I mean they used to be we have pictures of course when when did laden mission where bin Laden was going down and that's all well publicized -- situation room but.
I doubt that -- -- a picture of the situation room when we got this unfolding.
And Agassi posters goes to show you that I think it it's still very murky all of these details and eventually I'm sorry to say and -- you know better than -- but some point.
Executive privilege may come into play especially the -- -- -- bit further and people may seem conversations with the president or the people administration.
May be maybe that an attorney client privilege yet.
Okay have a list thank you very much -- -- -- -- and Bill Daly thank you both might -- it.
Missing in action.
Unfortunately he's trying to communicate unless something we're gonna talk about a fugitive hiding in some community somewhere that was clearly about -- made his attention from -- -- move on from that.
