Special -- veterans.
Signing a letter to congress demanding a select committee.
Look into the September 11 Attacks that killed four Americans including.
Our ambassador to Libya it reads in part quote.
The families of those slain in Ben Ghazi our service men and women around the globe and the American public deserve the truth.
Not the lies missed erection and stonewalling coming from President Obama.
Pretty strong lieutenant general Jerry Boykin is one of the vets who signed that letter is an original member of the US army delta force and later.
Commanded the army's green berets thank you so much for being with us.
Those are strong words as I said do you really think this administration is is lying and mr.
acting and covering now.
Well first -- objective of our letter is as not to go after the administration is to get accountability and to get the truth out now.
I think anybody looks objectively -- what we've heard so for.
Would tell you that this has earmarks a bigger cover up there is much more to be known about this.
That has not yes yet come out and I think that we we can see that there are is some attempt here not to allow the facts to be made public.
General are there are sixteen questions that all of you would like to be answered.
I sifted through them and they're all great questions it's astonishing that there are sixteen plus subdivision questions that haven't been answered yet was put up on the screen though.
Some of the ones that popped out it -- Why was there are no military response why of the survivors not being questioned who are they where -- Who was in the White House situation room during the attack for eight.
Long hours who gave the ordered to stand down that was heard repeatedly during the attacks.
General these are fundamental questions are are you just disheartened.
That we don't have the answers.
To these questions and it's been seven months.
-- Greg listen these 700 people spent their military careers.
Preparing for -- -- -- missions to.
Rescue Americans or to at least recover their bodies and we as a group are appalled.
At the fact that our congress has yet to ask these questions that we put in that letter these are fundamental to understanding what happened and -- Ghazi.
To providing accountability and to -- being able to provide information to these families.
Fox News has reported in the past that at least three times.
These men under fire were begging for help.
It was -- ordered stand down.
How can you make sense of answer.
Well we can't you say we know the history of of how special operations was created and how -- was placed in every creator.
With what we call commander in chief an extremist forces forces that are -- to be able to respond to a situation.
That is exactly like what happened in my -- and these forces have been there for two decades.
There were multiple capabilities in the Mediterranean and the European theater.
That were there to help and on in a situation in Africa.
And the best we can tell none of those were were.
Directed to respond to this and there has to be some answer.
As to why not it wasn't a military failure.
Or was -- a leadership failure it the national level that's what we wanna know.
Bob -- you also want to know.
Where the president was after all there was apparently reportedly real time coverage.
Of the attack for eight hours in various venues in Washington.
Pentagon White House other locations.
You want to know where the president was what his role was.
We want to know where the president was as well -- every other person -- a position of authority and responsibility.
To include the the military commanders as well.
Oh we think that's absolutely fundamental to understanding.
What actually occurred and why it occurred the way it did in -- -- General lieutenant general -- and now who is one of the vets who signed that letter -- 700.
