This week may be the defining -- in the Obama presidency as a lies about -- -- now begin to unfold tonight evidence is mounting to probe.
What women saying on this program for months and that is that the Obama White House engaged in a widespread cover up.
In the immediate aftermath of the -- -- terror attack and they did it all simply to win an election.
-- there are three breaking developments regarding the investigation into the September 11 assault that took the lives of four Americans including US ambassador Christopher Stephens.
Now this news is emerging in large part thanks to these three men.
Collectively known as the -- -- -- -- whistle blowers each of whom will appear before the house oversight committee on Wednesday.
But as we wait to hear directly from these high ranking State Department officials.
-- -- about what they plan to tell lawmakers well they already come -- -- let's begin with Mark Thompson a former marine.
Who currently runs -- state department's counterterrorism bureau.
Now Fox News has confirmed the mr.
Thompson plans to testified that on the night of the -- does -- attack.
Then secretary of state Hillary Clinton tried to remove her agency's counterterrorism bureau out of the chain of reporting and decision making.
And that's the first piece of evidence proving the administration intended from day one to suppress the notion that this was a coordinated terrorist attack.
Now the second piece of evidence comes to us courtesy of the second highest ranking US official on the night in the attack.
-- that's great -- he has served as a foreign service diplomat for more than twenty years he says he knew it was an act of terror quote.
From the -- now an addition he says his jaw hit the floor when he turned on the television.
And saw ambassador Susan Rice saying this -- one of those five Sunday shelves.
Our current assessment is that what happened -- -- Ghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous.
Reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo.
And almost a copycat.
Of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo.
Which were prompted of course by the video this was not a pre planned premeditated.
That what happened initially was it it was a spontaneous.
Reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo.
As a consequence of the video.
Not true -- let's remember Susan Rice -- independently decide to appear on those shows.
Nor -- she independently come up with the notion that a YouTube video was to blame for Benghazi far from it.
That is thanks to an investigation conducted by the weekly standard we now have proof that are talking points -- develop.
And edited by top administration officials for days.
Now let's review the facts now we know that on the day of the attack the State Department operations center sent out to alerts now one came just after 4 PM eastern.
Times stating that the console was under attack and the other was sent two hours later saying and al-Qaeda -- group had already claimed credit for this attack.
Now that was Tuesday September the eleventh the rice is talking points Warren sent out until just before 7 PM.
On Friday night the original draft accurately included references to jihadist Islamic extremists.
Experienced fighters and al-Qaeda and details of five recent terror attacks in -- -- But take a look at your screen on the left that -- number two of the talking points and as you can see several of the bullet points -- pursing al-Qaeda.
And other words taken out.
And that's how the final version on the right of your screen came to be.
It reads in part quote.
He currently available information suggests that the demonstration in -- -- war spontaneously.
Inspired by the protests at the US embassy in Cairo.
And that as we know what's a complete and utter lie.
Now there are three main things here number one.
Why were repeated requests before the attacks denied they knew that they were in trouble number two.
During the attack why were rescue troops told the stand now we need answers to that.
And why did the president what do you go to sleep that night without asking about the ambassador asking about the embassy and why did he decided to go campaign in the next day.
Also number three.
For the outright lies after the attack and the cover up.
Now remember Watergate was about lying and covering up -- in that case nobody died -- Watergate.
Gonna talk about these developments two men who will be on hand for the whistle -- testimony on Wednesday the chairman of the house oversight committee congressman -- -- Along with a member of that committee from Utah congressman chase and chase -- gentlemen welcome back to Hannity.
Think -- thanks -- back on John our congressman ice that we women through this with both on the human very generous with the time as we've been trying to get answers to all of us.
Although Jay Carney -- -- eight months ago.
Hillary well what difference does it make.
Let's start at the beginning request for a security were denied congressman -- -- Well in October 10 we made the case that it was denied and at that time.
People closely associated that with this career professionals.
Really believe that it was based on this concept of normalization.
In other words pretend like.
Libya was safe and the war on terror was behind us we still believe that's probably the Genesis of so much of the cover up if you will that occurred immediately following it.
But you said very well in your intro there was a campaign going on there was a president trying to win reelection and the -- -- the changes were made at a very high level.
All right and and congressman changed -- there was AF but we've now discovered through testimony Greg -- among others said there was a C 130.
Ready to bring reinforcements.
-- the attack to help those that war under fire.
And they were ordered to stand down.
The administration including secretary Panetta were very crystal clear there were no military assets but I got -- say.
We have proximity we had capability.
We had four individuals in Libya armed ready to go -- about to get into the car to go to the airport.
To go help their fellow country men who were dying and being killed and under attack and Ben Ghazi.
And they were told to stand down and -- Of all the things I've seen -- is sickening and depressing and disgusting as anything I've seen that is not the American way we had people there were there were getting killed.
We had people who are willing to risk their wives to go save them.
And somebody told them to stand down and that what do you do we confirm that C 130 was on the tarmac we -- people ready to get it I like to say again.
And left without them who gave the order.
Well that's all we -- still today -- gets more information about I think this is what we anticipate.
On Wednesday at the hearing we're gonna have people who were on the ground there in Libya that we'll talk directly to this.
All right let me show both -- you -- a series of statements that were made.
About the -- Ghazi attacks and the YouTube video and I wanna juxtapose this to what we now know that the original talking points more correct.
They mentioned al-Qaeda they mention that this was terror.
And by the time that Susan Rice went on -- Sunday -- by Friday they had all been changed -- redacted.
But -- let's -- -- the administration tell what we now know was a lie.
And -- the -- president said was a lie but yet they still went out with us this message the American people let's remind people what they were sacked.
Some have sought to justified this vicious behavior along with the protest.
That took place at our embassy in Cairo yesterday.
As -- response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet.
We can all condemned this reprehensible video we find the video.
-- it has been so offensive to Muslims.
Disgusting and reprehensible although we have nothing to do with the video.
We find -- -- it's not representative of America's views as it.
Crude and disgusting video.
Sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.
I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do -- this video.
A congressman -- it.
That's two weeks after now under -- -- -- I don't wanna laugh and Gregory hicks as saying they knew from the get up.
And yet these witnesses nor denied access to these witnesses what -- it warned those statements concerted lies in.
I think not only were they.
Untrue and known to be untrue but the these brave individuals particularly.
Gregory hicks coming forward.
Putting his career on the line to say I told them this was an attack I tried to tell them consistently.
He even talks in his testimony.
About calling the State Department.
And saying that was Susan Rice said couldn't have been true how did they do it.
And his he said that his -- his statements were unwanted.
And that that ever sense that and it's been even harder Rodham.
This is the kind of thing that you see and you don't believe you don't believe the denials -- delays and then the outright -- to understand.
The administration including Jay Carney is on the attack trying to claim that these whistle -- somehow are just disgruntled or or lying.
This kind of attack is what we expect.
-- one of the reasons that the whistle our laws -- effect -- to prevent the kinds of of things that are going on with these brave men.
Let me ask both of you -- this question these terrorist attacks happened just two months before the the presidential election.
Is it your belief that will be evident show this week.
That the American people will purposely lied to.
So that this would not have an impact that they were covering up this scandal to win this election congressman -- I I think it's crystal clear that it if it but for the committee -- -- except for Darrell ice myself on the committee trade -- others.
Personally just from the Fox News James Lankford others tenaciously we would still be led to believe by this administration.
That there was a video.
That there's nothing wrong there that the military did everything they could that they didn't tell anybody the -- -- all of these things been uncovered by congress and pushing.
Them to get to reveal the truth and and they still perpetuate these -- and I served as they can't do they cover up this to win an election.
It was part of a pattern that began before the attack -- denying that there was a real threat.
And then denying that they've been a real attack.
And that's what we need to get answers directly from people who were there like we will on Wednesday.
We're gonna ask you get a preview what's gonna happen on Wednesday will continue both congressman when we return then later.
