Unresolved problem segment I did Hillary Clinton mislead congress about -- -- Libya.
On January 23 she said this to the -- -- foreign relations committee.
The specific security requests.
Pertaining to Ben Ghazi.
You know we're handled by the security professionals in the department I didn't see those requests they didn't come to me I didn't approve them I didn't deny them.
Now some Republicans saying this -- Clinton misled everybody.
I don't know what her eyes saw what I do know is that her signature is on some of the denials of those request and what we know for certain is that -- some of these requests did not end with the security folks in the State Department.
They went higher up into the management levels.
Try denial for the requests where they request for more security in Libya because the diplomats are felt in danger joining us now from DC to sort of allowed Fox News chief Washington correspondent James -- What's the truth -- -- I mean we don't we haven't seen the memo that.
The former secretary of state allegedly sign right that's not nobody's.
That's not out in a public at all correct.
That's not the public -- may -- the Republican committees that prepared this report on Ben -- this week did see this April 192012.
Which they say was signed by Secretary Clinton rejecting more requests for security for greater security and Ben Ghazi we know thorn -- is telling the truth when he says as we just saw on your show.
Of these requests went higher up since the mid levels.
They went all the way up to the assistant secretary level.
At least what we don't know is whether Secretary Clinton is telling the truth when she says she never saw on the White House said today Jay Carney the white house Press Secretary that.
Yes it is standard protocol that all -- going out from the Department of State in foggy bottom here in Washington quote unquote carried the signature of the secretary of state as a matter of formality her name is -- there.
But he repeated that it only went to the secretary the assistant -- -- very well -- -- its auto pay and in signature not Hillary Clinton technically the no spin -- and and and putting it on -- that's the apparent claim but.
Let me tell you this about this report by the house Republicans I think they -- senate secretary of state Clinton off the hook in a very key respect she told.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee during that sworn testimony back in January that she was aware of no reports.
Prior to the end bastards the UN Susan Rice going on television on September 16 the famous -- the Sunday showed.
She Secretary Clinton was aware of no reports that stated anything to the contrary to what ambassador rice said which was this was a spontaneous protest but got out of hand in essence.
But in fact in this report itself shows as Fox News was the first report that at 608 PM.
On the night of those attacks -- Ben Ghazi September 11 point twelve the State Department itself circulated to 300 national security principals.
88 sort of and the equivalent a telegram -- a bullet in what's called and spend all alert from the state department's operations center.
Telling everybody again at 608 PM on 9/11 but -- -- Sharia and al-Qaeda linked terrorist group was claiming credit for those attacks it -- credibility.
To imagine that that report was withheld from the secretary of state.
On the night of the attack house here and yet there she testified under oath she was aware of no reports to the contrary prior to -- utilities and possibly.
I agree with you it strains credulity.
To think that mrs.
Clinton would not see.
Hey -- vital.
Op like that that goes out the night our ambassador -- assassinated.
But it's possible.
And she will say.
I never got eight I was it to hairdresser.
Well nobody that you're very well you know -- -- -- that he's gonna say.
Won't put aside your sexist hairdresser remark for the moment -- think of this there's there's that there's a paper trail if she was indeed -- that all the words there would be a paper -- to that effect and it's something that bears further investigation -- -- All right -- what if there's a paper trail.
Does that mean that it went into our inbox is that what you're saying that everybody who got it we CC is out what are you saying.
Right or a yes or that was folded up and down playing devil's advocate here.
If you can say look I and I get thousands of these misses and and they and I never I never saw that exists in my siblings didn't tell me about it.
And then we we revise it and this is what -- -- That's -- I hear you.
That's the claim for this request for more security before the -- step back in April 2012 but after you know that there's been an attack on our facility.
And you're getting constant communications with other national security professionals.
And principles trying to respond in the -- this attack.
-- you this is one you would see and you would remember.
Okay bombs summing up it looks like mrs.
Clinton did know and she said she didn't know but it's not going to be prove it.
And that's what I believe the whole thing is gonna come down.
I disagree I think it'll it'll learn more -- of Garros and -- you're on America and whenever you have some realism.
