Justice delayed is justice denied.
When crime occurs the investigation let's begin immediately.
I know this firsthand.
As the chief law enforcement officer of accounting.
Of a million people I made sure my prosecutors.
Rapidly responded to the scene of every homicide.
Evidence had to be secured forensic -- forensics analyze witnesses identified.
The true facts had to be frozen.
And for the most part we solved crime without the benefit of videotapes.
And there -- full of people watching the crime take place over an eight hour period.
Without this immediacy the passage of time would dim memories.
Allow witnesses to be influenced.
Indeed even less -- the resolve of those seeking retribution.
Hello and welcome to justice on judge -- bureau thanks for joining us.
President Obama promised us more than six months ago.
But those responsible for the murder of four Americans and Ben -- would be brought to justice.
Make no mistake.
Justice will be done but saying you're going to get justice is not the same as getting it.
This week Obama's chief law enforcement officer top cop Robert Mueller the head of the FBI.
Testified before congressional committee why -- suspects.
Believed responsible for the murders of ambassador Chris Stevens Sean Smith -- woods and -- authority.
Had not yet been brought to justice.
You may remember it took the FBI three weeks to even get into -- -- the crime scene because it wasn't -- Three weeks.
So how is it possible that CNN got in just days after the attack.
And down the ambassadors journal wary writes of his fears of al-Qaeda.
How is it possible but other reporters just days after.
Found -- classified Intel logs that should have been destroyed in the golden hour following the attack.
Last I checked most FBI agents carry guns and reporters carry notebooks.
So what could possibly be the reason for the failure to not only prosecute those responsible.
Or even take them into custody.
Let alone interrogate them.
And make no mistake we know who they are.
They were her on camera.
There was a -- and video.
They actually took credit for the attack.
Witnesses and authorities have identified -- my album cuts column as a ringleader of the September 11 attack and -- Gaza.
Yet -- Tolle doesn't even have bothered -- hide his defiance and hatred for the United States.
He walks around openly in Ben Ghazi in his sandals drinking cocktails.
A leader of -- are -- -- he has praised those construction fighters were seen attacking our mission.
So why have we not even spoken to the -- We're hurdles at the outset -- which are familiar.
In Bangkok -- did not have a you know law enforcement element to provide.
On the one hand the security and on the other hand the ability to act as a our partners.
To assist in developing witnesses.
But now the director is optimistic.
We have overcome many of those turtles we have.
The help of Libyan authorities who have exhibited a willingness to.
The supportive of the supporters and our investigation and it is progressing.
Six months and a 132 million of our dollars later and we're still wishing and hoping.
And then there's Ali -- Karzai.
He is a member of the violent North African extremist network with ties to al-Qaeda.
Actually in custody in Tunisia.
You people weren't cheating -- waiting for five weeks if my memory serves me Kirk on the ground -- -- the initial time they were there were and we've ever end Tripoli for a good long time they'd go.
But into Tunisia to win and one of the Asia there as of attack on the embassy -- right Tunisia on take what September 14 street that's later.
Really five weeks and we get to -- -- 320.
And finally -- -- my job now he set up the training camps and North Africa for terrorists we haven't spoken to him either.
When I was in Egypt two weeks ago I gave them a letter specifically -- asking president -- to allow the FBI to interview.
The person who they have in custody.
Has the FBI be given access to the individual.
Jim all known in the.
And just last week secretary of state Kerry.
Gave the objections 250.
Million dollars last month the few laps sixteen's to boot.
Now CIA director John Brennan says we need to respect those countries and let them do their job.
Sometimes their laws do not allow that to happen.
I think the United States government has to respect.
These government's right to in fact enforce their -- appropriately.
Really we give them money we get nothing in return other than their hatred for Americans and were waiting wishing and hoping.
And what about those they got these survivors.
Why hasn't the president or Hillary visited any of them.
Could it be because those survivors might have a different narrative and then say I told them what really happened.
It's called -- ability folks.
The White House says this weekend talked to them because they're involved and highly sensitive positions.
I -- worth noting.
In this case some of them -- highly sensitive positions have responsibilities.
Existed before and -- after an attack like that but.
Investigation is ongoing the fact of the matter is under investigation.
But the survivors could be made available to members of the intelligence community who have security clearances.
So why haven't we heard from them.
Why should we not heard.
From any of the Bengals -- survivors.
But and it.
I can't tell you the answer that I can tell you that I have visited with one of the survivors will be different.
I don't know what the circumstances are many requests to talk of -- -- White House certainly not preventing anybody from having access to any of the survivors of the Ben -- attack.
Bottom line is they feel that they cannot come forth they've been told to be quiet.
And at the end of the day we can't we can't 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.
Senator Lindsey Graham now there's a man who understands the importance of eyewitnesses and the importance of justice.
What I want to know is is anyone in custody in Libya or anywhere else for that matter.
How many suspects are at large.
How many have been in custody in their home country and then released.
How can we possibly.
Lead to the Libyan government the same government.
They couldn't protect our embassy and couldn't even protect the FBI and provide them access to the crime scene.
The authority or jurisdiction to investigate an apprehend those responsible.
For the murders of four Americans.
I've said it before and I'll say it again.
Justice delayed is justice denied.
