You are now the first official review of the terrorist attack in -- -- Libya said to be complete.
This comes only days before the hearings begin on the attack on Capitol Hill Hillary Clinton will not testify for now.
Said to be recovering from that concussion John Bolton former US ambassador -- the UN.
And a Fox News contributor -- good morning to you.
Tell me about this review board what do they do who is who's part of this well -- was appointed by the State Department itself to look into the incident and then got Z this is the standard procedure.
And I'm sure they've written a thorough report but it's not going to be the end of the the controversy why would it not be if -- that there -- record because the people who were pointed did people who did the appointing were people whose decisions are being questioned.
So I think it's important to gather the facts but that I don't think the conclusions will necessarily.
And I think they could cover three main areas one why did the State Department.
-- reject continue request for enhanced security before September the eleventh.
Number two could we have done more to protect our people during the attack.
And number three who came up with this ridiculous story that the whole thing was provoked by the know how do you deal you get all three of those answers in a review like this or you -- capability for you do and and it's important to note this is not just former State Department people admiral Mullen former chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff there's a former senior official of the intelligence community -- a member of the sport.
So they could reach out beyond the State Department -- and I hope they did although we obviously don't know at this point but we will get some word on this report because then it goes up the Capitol Hill well we take Eric.
Is an opportunity for congress to ask about do you think that is must see TV on Thursday well I'm certainly got to watch -- I'm very disappointed secretary -- not there obviously we all wish her well for.
Her health situation but it's just postponing a moment when she is gonna have to testify she will testify according to the reports we're getting yet there's -- -- -- this month or perhaps in January after the new year yes I think she's waited successfully two months until the administrator review board report is out that way she can read the report and -- her testimony accordingly we're really not risk contradicting -- -- so you let all the information get out there -- you react and -- yeah I think the secretary should have been on the hill right after the 9/11 attack to explain to congress what happened -- -- she's she's missed two critical -- shall miss this hearing on.
Thursday and she missed the famous Sunday morning talk shows.
Five days -- Ari are you suggesting she's not trying to be tripped up in this or she wants to have all the facts as they understand it now.
Where she's trying to go around some of the facts I think she certainly tried to avoid speaking in public he's only said a few things I think these witnesses on Thursday should be asked why the secretary didn't testify.
Why is the president said this Susan Rice had nothing to do with Ben Ghazi was the designated hitter.
Why didn't want to first secretary Clinton's two deputies testified they'll be up there Thursday what they're certainly competent people why didn't they -- and -- -- so we have two things tell you have the report that will leak out because it is unclassified at least parts of it that you get -- hearings later this week so this story is not over yet not by along -- we will see where it goes after that thank you mr.
