Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham senator Graham how important is it.
For us secretary of state Clinton to testify under oath before she leaves office about the again Ben Ghazi terror attack.
And what do you think we still need to know about -- -- Absolutely essential that she testify I wanna know from the sectors states' point of view.
Were you informed -- that fear rating security situation where all these cables coming out of Ben -- did they ever get up to your level.
And they did and that's a problem if they did I didn't -- differently.
I think is very important to know how the intelligence coming from Libya how it was received in the State Department so we can learn and correct any mistakes we need to -- That's correct some of your Republican colleagues say they're prepared to hold up the confirmation of John Kerry as secretary of state until Secretary Clinton testifies.
As secretary before she leaves -- going to happen I've been told by Senator Kerry he's here prick he won't step approach also.
He needs to hear what she says so he can make comments about I agree with her I don't agree with her it makes sense to have her go first.
You get without senator Feinstein that that she needs to testify -- first Alice and have you been assured she will testify.
-- it has been three and a half months and spend Ghazi and she still has never really answered questions.
About -- causing her role before during and after the attack.
Do you have reasonably she will testify as secretary.
-- said she will and I believe she will.
-- you know she's had a very real accident and she's recovering from it and she will be back I gather.
Her first day -- work may well be next week.

Hard learning example for us.
Our partner this is the intelligence -- part of it is the intelligence.
And I've gone through the intelligence.
And there were two full binders of intelligence.
And there is was a great deal of intelligence that would indicate.
That's something well could happen wasn't tactical -- didn't say on September 11 you can expect XYZ.
But there was enough to know that there were problems in the area they were also.
Attacks prior attacks British ambassador of the Red Cross prior attacked on the mission etc.
so -- Had reason to believe that there was a problem there the -- Lindsey pointed out the problem was.
The right people apparently either didn't make the decision.
Or didn't analyze the intelligence because I think if you looked at the intelligence you would have substantially.
Beefed up the security.
In that particular mission in Ben Ghazi and it didn't happen sufficiently.
We lost four people a bright ambassador.
The mission didn't have those basic things gas mask fire extinguishers.
Appropriate cameras that could do -- cameras can do today so we have learned this I think it's up that the State Department.
It's up to us to provide the money here we go again and up to the State Department to make the changes that are necessary the apparent -- -- for.
