-- testimony from three bank Ghazi whistle blowers is set to get under -- tomorrow.
Brand new hearings into the terror attack that will take place tomorrow morning this is new questions are growing about what then secretary of state Hillary Clinton and her staff.
Knew that night about how things were playing out and the assault that killed four Americans including US ambassador Chris Stevens.
The chairman of tomorrow's hearings saying that the evidence is pointing to a cover up at the highest levels -- this case.
Here's congressman -- I sat who's on our show yesterday that.
Well I think it's a story grows every one becomes more and more familiar.
That when Hillary Clinton said what difference does it make it makes a big difference it makes a difference.
In in who's responsible for these men's death.
And ultimately whether or not we covered it up for political reasons or is the president's asserting for classified reasons which.
Is becoming more and more doubtful.
And that's a pretty -- -- From -- I sit there and I'm now joined by Utah Republican Jason Tait fits.
Who will be in that hearing as well tomorrow on that committee on oversight and Government Reform Committee -- welcome back to the program.
Good morning -- you know good morning to you will we're starting to get a little bit of more information about what we're gonna hear tomorrow and we're hearing some quotes that have been attributed.
To Gregory techs who was the deputy chief of mission -- he was number 20.
To Cris Stevens in fact he made his his last communication.
I had to mr.
hicks and yet mr.
-- feels like.
He was completely left out of this investigation.
And he says when he heard with Susan Rice set on the morning shows his jaw dropped.
What what what is that -- we'll hear and what more.
Well it is is a very brave patriotic person when I went to Libya three and a half weeks as the first member congress to get there.
I spent a good part of the day with him and I I just think it's so important that we hear from a nonpolitical person a person who is there on the ground.
A career foreign service person who is just cares about his country.
Was deeply saddened personally you know dealing with that the death of ambassador Stevens of the other.
He can provide some insight that the rest of us can't so we're looking forward to hearing from him and and given that personal insight.
-- I I would think one of the moments that this is gonna come down to in terms of shedding light on this.
Is that they were told that the special ops folks were told to stand down that they were ready to go.
They wanted to come in and help.
The two -- former Navy SEALs who were killed in the final hours of this.
According that childhood that call come from who told them to stand down is that would not one of the biggest questions here.
Well we were repeatedly told by the administration from the president himself to the secretary defense and others.
That they did everything they could but unfortunately there weren't any military assets that could get there in time.
First of all we didn't know in the conclusion of this firefight was going to happen.
Remember it started at 9:40 PM local time we didn't have people leaving Ben -- -- after the 6 AM hour.
There was a barrage of attacks that happened a very serious one there in the 5 AM hour.
But we did have military assets there we did have we had four.
Men dressed ready to go armed and ready to get in the car according to two mr.
And then they were told to stand down now that is expects total contradiction from what.
The administration said but they were there were also the ones that said it was a video they are also the ones and said that security officials made decisions on the ground.
None of these things -- end up being true and that's why we continue to pursue this.
You know and there's no pressure day in on this tomorrow for you know and for congressman I sent who have really -- -- holding on to this story.
When everybody else Jay Carney -- -- let this happen on time without in any you -- should really let go and listen and move on.
What do you need what do you feel you need to accomplish in these hearings tomorrow in order to continue to one and earth what you claim is a cover.
Well look we have four dead Americans.
We have terrorists that committed this attack that have never been captured or killed.
Imagine after the Boston bombings that they were eight months after it.
And we didn't have anybody in custody we hadn't killed or take anybody out and at the senior most officials in the government was saying I don't worry about it happened long time ago.
That's just not the -- that's that's not the American way -- different in the United States America we're open we're transparent we learn from our mistakes to make sure that the hundreds of embassies and consulates.
And the thousands of people that are serving overseas.
Are properly protected so.
I just want truth and justice I don't know how this all -- but I can tell if it wasn't for -- -- and the oversight committee.
We would be left with a whole host of wise coming out of this administration is they were not truthful about them.
There's rob and got a lot of people -- attention tomorrow and big moment in these hearings -- -- will -- here alive.
Prior to achieve this thank you very much -- for being -- today we'll be watching intently now.
