But special forces personnel were ordered by higher ups.
In special operations command Africa not to board a Libyan C 130 plane that flew from Tripoli to Ben Ghazi shortly before dawn on September 12 the plane whose mission.
Was to supply reinforcements to the embattled US security agents -- Ben Ghazi.
But former ambassador Thomas Pickering who chaired the state department's post Ben Ghazi review board.
Indicated in an exclusive interview on the Alan Colmes show on Fox News radio last night.
Such hopes of military intervention were ill founded.
-- -- -- -- that nothing could have been done to relieve the initial attack.
Subsequent attacks took place beginning.
About midnight but died we've been an hour.
And I think within those time frame stumping could've been done.
Also tomorrow we will hear allegations that then secretary of state Hillary Clinton and undersecretary of state for management Patrick Kennedy.
Tried to cut the department's own counterterrorism bureau.
Out of the chain of reporting and decision making on the night of the Bengals he attacks.
But George will come from Mark Thompson of the counterterrorism bureau his former boss has already called this -- untrue.
And the State Department speaking for Kennedy calls a quote 100%.
We also expect to hear more -- about the process that yielded those now infamous talking points delivered by UN ambassador Susan Rice on September 16 -- James thank you we'll tomorrow's hero putting the spotlight on former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
The fact is -- -- Ford dead Americans what I got that right protest it was a because of guys out for a walk when not -- decide they go kill some Americans.
What difference at this point does it make.
Well could make a very big difference especially for someone who could well be the democratic.
The next -- 12016 will Democrats circled the wagons to protect -- the former Florida congressman lieutenant colonel Allen west and how.
He sees things playing but he -- -- -- the also pleasure to be with you I think you have to be very careful about playing a political game which is what it.
You hear the other side saying about this investigation come from the house Republicans.
We know -- that without a doubt.
Being Gaza was somewhat swept under the -- to try to enable President Obama to be successful in 2012 election cycle and now.
If they want to continue to try to deflect to protect.
The front runner candidate for 2016 that's another dangerous -- but.
Most importantly let's let's flip this pancake.
Let's just asked a question what if this were a Republican president -- if this were there Republican administration Republican secretary of state.
I mean I believe that you would hear the Washington Post New York Times LA times Chicago Tribune.
Ever -- your major mainstream media outlets just really going to not crazy after this to include going back to the intervention in Libya in the first place.
So I think we all have to understand it does make a difference.
That and embarrassed for the losses life and we cannot see that is the new normal.
Two former Navy SEALs were obviously they're fighting believing.
Then the Credo and leave no man behind that someone would come to assist them in that event.
And you have some thirty survivors that we have never heard anything anything from.
But more importantly where is the commander of US effort comp general Carter Ham who after the been Ghazi is -- Somehow came up for retirement and we have not heard anything from him.
If -- -- -- Rivera she seconds we have -- that.
The president lied that he misrepresented and -- that that it was one thing but it's proven and it was another.
How bad does that -- I think is very bad think that this in rural poor reflection on him as the commander in chief.
To sit up there and say that we did everything we possibly can as Ford's resources and it seems that there was some resource and we could have used with special forces.
That could have been deployed from Tripoli and also fighter aircraft -- -- debate.
As well I believe that when you understand he just lost an ambassador.
That's not the time the next day when you get on an airplane you go to a farmers -- on the Las Vegas.
So I believe that this is self and that.
The administration the secretary former secretary of state need to.
Take accountability responsibility for and give the American people the truth because we now know there was no truth all right colonel -- -- -- thank you very much that hearing of course tomorrow.
Fox will cover it live.
