-- do respect the fact he has yet Ford dead Americans what I had to make protest it was a because of guys out for a walk when not decide they -- kill some Americans.
What difference at this point does it make.
That was former secretary of state Hillary Clinton back in January.
Testifying about the false talking points the misleading talking points.
Offered by the Obama administration in the wake of the bank -- terror attack that killed four Americans including our ambassador.
For the first time publicly.
We will hear directly from the whistle blowers who say this administration.
Mishandled the response put politics ahead of security and has been misleading.
The American people.
Since the day of that attack.
Some are now suggesting that tomorrow's testimony will provide not -- some much needed answers but could also.
The role mrs.
Clinton's political future into question.
For humans are Fox News senior political analysts now -- She may wish she never did that I mean there -- -- the consensus was that that was an orchestrated moment when she gave that testimony what difference does it make it was the most emotion she showed.
In the testimony.
But you have to wonder why she did that now it got so an emphatic on that point what difference.
When now we know I mean now according to the reporting this come out this week her State Department we don't know what it was Hillary Clinton herself her state departments all over.
Changing those talking points to take out the explanation that al-Qaeda was behind this and to cleanse the talking points to lead us to believe.
This is about some spontaneous protest related to a video which we now know it definitely was not.
Megan is really no way for -- -- responsibility for this it's this testimony does what we all expect now that it will of course it's you know.
Years in Washington I've seen mania -- hearing.
Phil to live up to expectations but if it does.
And there's no way I think she can escape this and I think she recognized from the start.
That this was trouble.
I don't think it was an accident that Susan Rice.
The UN ambassador who was kind of unusual choice.
Was -- person went out on the Sunday shows to recite his talking points I think that Secretary Clinton.
-- -- the talking points were shaky she may have participated in making them shaking.
But she did not want any of the any of that mud on her shoes that it might because and then Susan Rice of course.
Has paid and paid a price for being one -- recited them.
But we also know as you suggest Victorian -- the State Department spokeswoman was involved in the crafting of those talking points she reports.
Directly or indirectly to Hillary Clinton when she was telling me.
Other people who were -- the points -- my building that means Hillary Clinton's State Department had a problem with this and -- the other thing.
And they were changed it did at her behest.
Secretary Clinton cannot escape responsibility for that.
And it practically -- and read as a practical matter mediate you have -- your victory -- it.
Writing back saying I've got serious concerns about the draft the talked all about al-Qaeda and how many times they've been attacking in recent.
Weeks and in months a -- serious concerns about the draft.
I'm worried this is going to be used against the state department for not paying attention to CIA.
Warnings and that they keep revising -- -- we're still unhappy they do not resolve all my issues -- those of my building leadership on a mat and it's terror attack.
-- -- our consulate that resulted in our ambassador being killed is it plausible that.
Building leadership did not include the secretary of state Hillary Clinton that she would not be involved in weighing in.
And how we were going to respond to this publicly.
Well look at it another way -- let's assume that she claims that she didn't have responsibility for that what does that say about her stewardship.
Of her department at a moment when it's a terrible thing it's happened.
To an ambassador whom we to believe -- she's given every indication she had great faith in and cared a lot about this.
-- -- murdered ambassador there was her subordinate.
The staff there at the M at the embassy.
-- her subordinates -- so if she took a walk.
During this that doesn't exactly recommend her for a live person who's gonna receive the middle of the night phone calls does it.
What is and this is not I don't think there's any way for her to.
To escape this.
Even if he succeeds in -- -- she -- never fingerprints on it.
-- she didn't she should -- and when she heard the the talking points who decided she had to know they were wrong that if she didn't that's dereliction.
And if she did know they were wrong she should have said something.
So -- it's just out of don't think there's anyway out -- -- -- look to get a vast amount of forgiveness he's an icon of the Democratic Party.
A lot of people in the media will -- excuse -- if they can.
But the facts may prove too heavy.
I want to ask you that to what extent does this influence do you think her decision.
About whether or not to -- I mean obviously shall take some hits if she does run in her opponent a primary or general election gonna use it against her but do you think this kind of think it actually keep her out of the race.
Well we'll have to see how bad it gets.
But it certainly is a weapon in the hands of her potential opponents both within and -- party and in a general election if he gets set for.
And the other thing Megan is this also contributes to another question.
Which is what she really a very successful.
And special secretary of state I think the case for that is pretty weak.
There was no great Clinton doctrine in foreign policy are there any treaties that she forwarded that were it helped negotiate that have made a big difference -- the situation in the Middle East.
Which is always been in the Tinder box there that every American secretary of state must deal with is that when markedly improved by virtue of her stewardship the State Department.
I think -- all those questions is probably -- so how has this really it is this really great credential for her as a last job he held.
Going into -- presidential campaign.
And now and tell -- social.
And now we see I've got to run but now we see you know as as these hearings take place that this is this has become much more than about.
Misleading the American people and a Fox News investigation on TV last -- for.
Well I would just say that you know also the additional question of why the security was not beefed up with the embassy and -- nothing.
Was done to try to rescue these people when when everything hit the fan and there it goes there are a lot of questions that remain on it should there we may get some -- of that as well this could end up being an even bigger debacle than.
Then the air cover up represented by the talking points for him great -- -- thank you.
