Tonight in -- Ben -- investigation the FBI releasing photos of three men -- -- the scene of the September 11 attack.
And US consulate in Ben Ghazi and now almost eight months later.
The FBI is asking for your help tracking them down.
All these months later.
And finally releases surveillance photos of the suspects.
The feds say they are now looking for three men who they believe were on the grounds of the compound during the attack.
And can help move the investigation forward.
They had these pictures on day one just like everybody in the media know about obamacare on day one and instead they blame the video.
What sparked the recent violence was the erring on the Internet -- Very hateful very offensive videos I'm not talking generally I am talking specifically about they got -- That people have been threatened and not just the State Department and -- people have been threatened that the CIA big -- the happened a long time.
We are unaware of any agency walking in and.
Boy who would like to appear before congress to provide information related and got number we're we're now where.
Miss tensing and the actions he -- and now she's been a touch of us directly to go about the normalization is just so huge and long.
Rotation making false statements that were unfounded that we were false statements as long.
We think that -- posted -- -- -- that.
Also it's not Republican senators demanding to know the names of the survivors of the Ben Ghazi attack and they are going straight to President Obama -- John McCain is leading the charge along with senators Lindsey Graham and Kelly got.
Joining us is Senator John McCain good -- -- Good evening.
You sent a letter directly to the president you -- -- know the names of the witnesses those guys who was mean the people on the ground -- Ghazi -- went out I think yesterday have you heard anything back from the White House.
No we have incredible but it was -- mr.
That no information has been hit withheld from the congress and the American people.
When we don't even know -- the names of the people who were evacuated from the consulate.
And taken to Germany and should have been debriefed.
Immediately and then any illusion about what kind of attack that was sent.
What caused it would've been dispensed with the and the then then ambassador rice wouldn't have had to go hole on national television and say that this was safe spontaneous.
Demonstrations sparked by -- a hateful video.
It's been a long time and yes it's been a long time and we still haven't gotten answers to -- many questions including.
Who made up the talking points for ambassador rice could go on all -- national talks TV talk shows.
On that Sunday one of which I wish Simon was stunned by her.
By her comments so.
And now we understand.
That the accountability.
That secretary then Secretary Clinton convened.
Is now being investigated by the -- inspector general.
About whether the -- were able to order desired to interview all people involved.
Her stomach and just talk about that for second time in the whole idea was in the very beginning of the White House didn't wanna give out information the state farm because it -- -- Innovators there -- seen investigate outsourcing accountability review board.
That was the idea now we're learning apparently and correct me if I'm -- that they accountability review board didn't even talk directly to the witness is the people with the information isn't that clear understanding -- That's my understanding.
That they didn't even talk directly to them.
And at the same time since we in congress didn't know the names we obviously didn't talk to them and again they would take it.
Taken out the next morning.
They knew what happened.
And you would so I think that one person the CIA are one person -- the White House would have picked up the phone and said hey let me talked -- hundred of these people.
In the fight and were taken to Ramstein Germany for treatment so that they could give their depiction of what happened and guess what.
They didn't do that.
What I also find a bit curious is -- -- aggravate I understand the whole business about an ambassador Susan Rice going on all the talk shows and saying there was some video that had provoked this.
But apparently that they that they knew almost immediately -- a picture of a Tunisian.
And apparently they had these pictures that they're now releasing the FBI's not release of people -- were on the ground.
So the -- in newest far back as September.
And you would think that we I mean why don't understand why that information wasn't disseminated -- earlier why they're dragging their feet.
But I just I just don't understand why it took -- -- months to.
Release these pictures I mean that's another explanation that I think we should be.
We should be provided with -- but but again I also understand.
And these are all rumors and and I'm not positive but.
We're hearing that people who were.
Eyewitnesses to this -- people who knew about.
Whether we could have gotten there in time remember -- these individuals were killed in the last hour.
A seven and a half hour firefight.
That people are being bullied and intimidated and threatened -- -- we don't know if that's true or false I'm not saying it's true.
But I am saying it's an argument for a select committee in congress.
To investigate all of this get to the bottom of it and get it.
What's -- drain on since last September but down now to an -- a new dimension.
Vicky tongs and a lawyer here in Washington is -- his -- is had a disagreement -- declared.
Gently with the State Department I've posted all that on Greta why people could see the different communications.
She says that the spokesperson.
At the state -- -- -- an event -- was incompetent are lying because he said that that he knew of no attorney request when he knew very well this is an email she will meet tonight he knew very well the constant ice had written to letters asking for a process to clear lawyers.
And DOS had not responded and that he purposely miss characterized it as attorney request so he could then shoot it down make her distraught person she then goes on the say it's not just possible then trial was mischaracterized in my statements mean -- She says he did so with intent tonight got -- -- lawyers say this is trying to get a clearance so the chicken talked her clients look at classified and essentially she's saying that the State Department is standing in her way and also this characterizing what she said essentially making her out to be a liar.
When she says she's not a liar.
You not I don't know the details of that back and forth.
But it I think I would have -- Tennessee's side.
Who with her in that respect that since the White House wouldn't even or the administration.
Would not even give us the names of the people who -- -- survivors.
Who were taken to Germany and a house apparently next week is going to have a hearing on this and I hope that that clears up some of these questions.
But one thing I'd like to mention I am hearing from the families.
These people who these four -- brave Americans who were killed.
And I can assure you they are not happy and they do deserve answers.
Does the president have the authority and I actually does something that's just double -- does the president have the authority to order that the names of the witnesses those people on the ground be turned over to congress so congress can do it's job its congressional obligation to oversight on this and investigated can the president do what -- -- and that letter.
But wouldn't that be just routine Greta when they said that they are going to cooperate completely with congress I mean why should it even require.
Presidential attention you I mean.
It just it just would be natural if they're cooperating to say yes he's of the people and here's -- people it would they work and where the action.
What I understand those throughout this whole thing is that I'm saying can't subpoena the president coming in and but I realize you're in the minority party in the senate.
But still likely candidates stand why why the -- house representatives.
Was it more aggressive in trying to get information and issuing subpoenas and demanding people come -- Capitol Hill with the information we.
I understand why the Republicans were more aggressive just to get the facts.
Well I hope you'll have Darrell -- Who is.
Been handling this and I think is they're having hearing -- Wednesday I believe I'm not positive about that.
And I think -- tale of a lot of the efforts that he's made and Mike Rogers as well.
But I think it's pretty obvious -- the senate we haven't.
We haven't pursued it very vigorously.
What -- think the president do in the press conference and present this -- -- anything about any efforts to try to interview the and -- -- any efforts to serve block people from interviewing the survivors what did you think about that.
I think he's not either not well briefed.
Or should have been.
And should have been more involved in it because.
It's a little embarrassing when they pressing United States says something that.
Really isn't very logical.
Said thank you -- Thank you Greta.
