-- the top Republican senator now demanding answers from the FBI director after not being briefed on there -- -- Ghazi investigation for the last six months.
Four Americans died in the assault on the US consulate including our ambassador Chris Stevens.
Now senator Susan Collins says she wants some simple questions answered quote.
Are any of the suspects believed to be responsible for bid for the deaths of these four Americans.
Including ambassador Stephens in US or Libyan custody.
How many suspects in the attacks are still at large.
Few other questions after that Virginia Republican congressman Frank Wolf has been fighting for answers in the Ghazi he -- -- Our guests now sir good morning welcome back morning.
-- I would imagine that those questions are the same ones have been elusive for use it.
They they are they're good questions the answer is there's been somebody picked up in Egypt.
They will not allow the FBI -- we've given the Egyptian government 250 million dollars two weeks ago and they have been suspect in custody.
And it won't allow us to talk them there was some might pick up in to tenacious.
He's been released we get the Tunisian 320 million dollars a year.
There have been no federal employees given -- protection comment.
No one's been subpoenaed know when there's been talk to the people there's still an individual -- -- -- who was wounded six months after.
Still going through rehabilitation.
Officer -- you're doing -- here -- this way you get the rationale for why this is happening.
Well what why well -- answers so looses it.
You know personally I think there's there's an effort by the administration to cover this and I think the only way.
You're gonna get to the bottom of it now is to have a select committee.
Whereby they have subpoena authority.
It can be bipartisan.
You know you are never found out what took place in Watergate if you had not had a select committee to look look at this.
It's been six months you can see administration's not -- Secretary Clinton did she even go out and visit the wounded.
That benefit festive.
And you need subpoena power really to protect the federal employees their careers are on all on the line.
If you're fifty years old you don't -- to get across to breakers with your your your -- -- lose your job -- may -- accusing college.
You have a mortgage -- -- gonna have to have a select committee.
You're gonna have to subpoena them think this can all be done in private again -- humanitarian couples are still Iceland's most of people will never gonna let me cut right to this now you mentioned cover -- What are they trying to cover up.
Well I think that's what this like committee would find out what happened that day why did it take so long why are we not interview -- Secretary Clinton.
When she talked about the four people who were heroes -- who died.
Why did -- not mentioned those who were wounded we have an obligation to them we should honor that we should we should thank him.
There are more questions out here than there are usually -- another question for you than the house committee has subpoena power right.
It and why has it not moved on this.
I you have to ask the chairman of those that's why wanna select committee taking people from judiciary foreign affairs Intel armed services to -- subpoena power.
One committee one council one chairman to ask -- tough questions.
But I don't know why they -- here's another good day should have been.
Yeah apparently there were 33 American survivors that were working in Ben Ghazi at the time the attack on behalf provided the state department of the CIA.
Why is there no access to these people.
That's why we need -- select committee this subpoena them and give them the protection.
To bring them and allow -- -- of the public who have -- relate to testify and I think they're hiding them and I think quite frankly many of these employees are afraid to come in and testify.
Here's another question from senator Collins have any of the suspects.
Believed to be responsible.
From the desk -- otherwise captured or held under the existing authority afforded the American government.
And the war against al-Qaeda and its affiliates I think that goes your first point.
About an arrest in -- and arrest and Egypt that apparently have gone nowhere.
The FBI I was on the ground and Tunisia for five weeks and we're not a -- left left the FBI team talked them.
They then came back they let him talk them for three hours they released him.
And I bet they can -- find the -- there was a guy in -- I was an age of three weeks ago I gave a letter to the Egyptian government.
Asking president -- -- to allow the FBI to come in an interview the person they have.
In -- custody in Egypt and to look at the information the Egyptian government we're not allow the FBI on the field.
Sir thank you for your time fresh losses and on this for sometime -- we'll see whether or not there's a move next time by the house and subpoenas Frankel thank you thank you're Martha was.
