New questions about the investigation in the deadly terror attacks on the US consulate in Ben Ghazi.
-- Republican senator Lindsey Graham hot on this issue from the very beginning last September.
But now accusing the Obama administration -- telling me injured survivors to keep quiet about the matter.
The White House denies that accusation.
Senator Graham says they feel like they cannot come forward and go up.
In the day we can't we let this administration or any other administration get away with hiding from the American people and the congress.
People who were there in real time to tell the story.
So KC McFarland former deputy assistant secretary of defense during the Reagan administration Fox's national.
Security analysts and good morning good morning you what is senator Graham alleging here.
About these survive.
Well he's found the survivors -- survive turns out there's probably anywhere to thirty up from some of them are still in the hospital some of them -- injured in the Ben -- firefight.
Some of them got away claim.
But he wants it now a couple of things first of -- they come under subpoena if they go to if there's a theater before a congressional committee.
They're gonna talk what are they gonna talk about.
We wore them that it was a dangerous neighborhood and we needed more support they're probably also gonna talk about they'd be.
Actual attack itself was expecting to be rescued -- they've been rescued.
But I think the more important question that senator -- or whoever is going to potentially have congressional committees -- going to -- and that's what would you -- there where every better.
What we should function.
Were you buying weapons we're trying to get hold of weapons that were part of Qaddafi -- arsenal that we had failed to secure and we -- Qaddafi if so that's a real indict.
And so then -- senator Graham got his way in the survivors go Republican maybe did talk to you or me or some other reporter may be either.
Call before committee hearing Brian and then they get that -- question that you just raised what were you doing and then Gaza right why is that so dangerous to -- library.
She has may -- what they were doing with securing the weapons.
That the administration failed to overlooked.
To secure when they topple Qaddafi everyone knew that Qaddafi have a lot of weapons certain kinds of very damaging weapons that we failed to secure.
Mean I was on your show saying I don't tell Qaddafi is I -- -- -- weapons are.
The second question now is what are they doing with those weapons if they got them.
Where -- -- in the back to the United States where they destroying homes where they potentially passing them on the somebody else and at least we know that Qaddafi is arsenal.
Is is really what is supplying all the bad guys in the region -- we going to take some of that arsenal and try to supply people without -- -- know what you're what you're suggesting that was if that is true this theory that you're talking about here that would be a significant yeah.
-- -- -- -- -- I'm not saying it is I'm just saying there's so many unanswered questions and why are these people being held.
Out of about eyesight now are -- being held because -- State Department said you guys are contractors we're never gonna give you another contract if you come forward and say what really happened and then passed.
There has to be -- reason you're suggesting that -- now listen we we've been reporting.
37 personnel Lyndon Ghazi yes working on behalf of the State Department and the CIA -- of those 3733.
Yeah the other four.
Were killed for it so then the question is what with a 33 survivors.
Doing in -- at that.
And who are they where they contractors where they were they CIA employees of a former -- special -- former we don't know there's just more and more questions every time -- I find it hard to believe that you can keep 33 people quiet storm lasted just saying here and that inevitably when -- eventually you do eventually they talk all -- comes out.
And when one talks failed talk -- thank you we weighed on time for that to have -- MacFarlane on the reaction from Lindsey Graham are rightly.
