There were some members of one of the conversation -- gonna compare notes on what we know and what we don't know.
And and frankly there is a lot that we still don't know none of those so it was thought that was up from exchange for information.
And and some decisions about a way forward.
-- that was house speaker John Boehner talking yesterday about a new effort to get -- the bottom of what happened in Ben Ghazi Libya more than six months.
After the terror attacks that left our ambassador and three other Americans dead frustration is still growing on Capitol Hill.
As Republicans accused the White House.
Of keeping information under wraps and as calls for access to the survivors are met by silence speaking bond is Fox News national security -- she joins us via Skype -- -- And so what a John Boehner called this did disparate group of lawmakers -- -- it sounds like they still have lots of questions what more needs to be answered.
Well actually you have more and more questions everyday -- -- not.
Well somebody messed up big time before that and got -- parents don't have any answers that.
Why get requests for additional security were -- not we don't have any answers.
About why they were last -- while it checkers I'm going do you really try to rescue them.
Who's available why -- -- not rescued and the excuse that well you know how long cat would go -- Remember because this is the beginning of the attack usually in a situation like XBO and to -- -- -- trying to.
Do whatever they can't help but people were under chat but I think that that really is set this up again.
Is we now know that there were survivors.
Nobody's been allowed to talk to the survivors and -- and I was thinking order.
Why have they not been allowed to come or why have they not been allowed to tell their story.
Is -- something here covering up to the White House wants you not to know what happened during that attack does the White House wants you not to know why those contractors were even.
In and got reimbursements would you everywhere -- is -- an actor and a passport control operation.
Where they -- again weapons -- weapons conduct its weapons remain -- to -- with al-Qaeda in eastern Libya where they intentionally taking those weapons.
That they were collecting from the cannot be arsenal and passing -- -- somebody else Syrian rebels.
Those are all questions that continue to come -- and the more time goes on -- more questions we have.
Well I'll tell you senator Lindsey Graham says that he spoke to some of these survivors.
And some of the information that came out was that there were 37 -- US personnel.
In Ben Ghazi.
On September 11 and at some of them maybe even a majority of them.
Were with the CIA.
So given that would we ever hear from that does that explain why they haven't been more public.
It is and how did it but I think others -- -- and -- tax Oxnard.
One person who was very close to the people who were on the ground -- -- -- We're State Department contractors another seizure people who -- in the CIA he's been special courses they were hired by the State Department doesn't do something we're not sure that's something else.
So that question then becomes why do they not count or they're not protected in the same way that is CIA employees would be.
And there's an issue of some of the administration says well we can't have those people in public because that was a highly classified operation.
But there are ways to do that -- -- in closed session.
Before congress only people who met session here people -- high security parents is -- -- -- -- -- -- so you can start wondering at a certain point.
Why are they trying so hard to cover everything up if there's something there meteors in the -- By the American people and certainly through their members of congress have a right to know what.
Interesting things about what John Boehner did this week is that he brought all of these different committee heads together.
And so normally and he knew how Washington works parents -- generally try to carve out their little fiefdoms.
They want the credit for cracking got -- -- work or controlling Intel but John Boehner brought all of these different committee heads together so that they could pool.
Their information and share their information and -- what congressman.
Mike Rogers told Fox News is it when they cross reference all of their different committee information they found out that there are anomalies.
And wonder what that -- -- Well you USA.
You know for example the armed services committee may well nothing intelligence -- -- -- -- they don't our relations committee something else and homeland security committee sending absentee.
Now I think will happen and -- when I was in the -- -- Watergate I was at the Pentagon during the Iran content here is.
All of what will happen is congress special select committee and other -- members armed services from Homeland Security.
Crummy Intel committee and put them together -- a special committee and then -- into just this subject.
I think that's the direction they're going and it would probably have to be.
Out of the house because that's where Republicans will subpoena power may well maturity so it would have to be something that the Republicans in the house to do because I don't think anybody in the hat and a -- constant -- it.
All right well we will look to see if I select committee is the next step here.
He's got -- -- always great to get your expertise thank you -- Aaron.
