Explosive testimony on Capitol Hill yesterday over -- Ghazi.
Three whistle blowers testified that the Obama administration lied about what what led up to the assault.
And blew the response itself.
And then lied about that.
Chris -- reaction.
Florida senator Marco Rubio.
Likewise thank you for having me.
What jamaicans -- -- -- -- hearings yesterday paying very insightful -- there's not a lot more to be learned now here's what we know about Ben -- the first of all -- probably shouldn't have been open.
And the people in charge of that Secretary Clinton State Department -- steady stream of reporting that showed how dangerous it was it was one of the reason why the British pulled out of there you know and so we knew that it was a dangerous.
Place to begin -- Second they didn't have adequate security for the place it was dangerous and then they left it open but they didn't give him -- -- security.
Third apparently they didn't give them enough response teams to respond to any sort of attack.
Now there are people saying that maybe there's something we could've done for the second wave of the attack but they -- let us ago.
So these four things are very very troubling and you know I just want to congratulate those like Fox News and others that have kept on this issue.
Because this is not about politics this is about accountability someone needs to be held accountable for what's happened here.
But it's also about preventing this from happening in the future -- we don't know honestly what happened here how we gonna prevent this from happening -- in the future to other diplomatic outposts around the world.
This is not about hurting anybody politically this is about getting to the truth.
-- the people we held accountable and so that we can prevent this from happening again in the.
Future you know what senator clearly the administration -- and the political people made a calculation all right -- -- and Susan Rice out there she's gonna say was that video.
That's it stirred up Libya.
Here is Greg hicks who was on the ground in Libya on that day reacting to the fact that he heard ambassador rice blamed the video.
I was stunned.
My jaw dropped.
And I was embarrassed.
Did she talk to you before she went only five Sunday talk shows us -- You were the highest ranking official in Libya at the time correct yes.
And she did not bother to have a conversation with you before she went on national television no -- Is just crazy -- then mr.
hicks talked about how.
He talked to one of his supervisors assistant secretary Beth Jones -- it.
Why did the ambassador say it was a video an -- her reaction was I don't know but made it very clear from the tone shut up.
And move on later he was -- reprimanded he'd always had a great reviews and then he was demoted.
From -- deputy chief of mission to a desk officer simply for essentially challenging Susan writes.
Yup that's right and I think there's two reasons why that happened number one is the president was in the middle of reelection.
One of us talking points is that terrorism have been defeated and he had defeated and -- ran counter -- that narrative.
They didn't want to admit there was a terrorist attack because to admit it was a terrorist attack was to admit the terrorism was still got out there and and and and reaching us.
And so that's the reason why they sent the order in my opinion.
And some way shape or form they sent the order that this should not that these talking points should not be allowed to include.
Any reference to terrorism -- -- or at least -- acting as a terrorist attack but rather that they need to be told that this was something that was a result of the YouTube video.
So I think that was the political motivation behind it what I think is sad.
Is how many people -- around the administration.
Including the former secretary of state Secretary Clinton.
Knew this to be the case and allow this to move forward anyway you would have hoped the people would've stood up and said this is wrong the American people deserve the truth that didn't happen.
We do need the answers let's hope there's more to this -- -- -- let's talk about what you're going to be busy with I know him up on Capitol Hill the senate is going to start considering is it true there are 300 amendments down to the to the gang of -- suggestion on how to reform immigration.
And I think that's a good thing I'm -- -- a lot of people are shocked by the sheer number but this is a very complex issue it involves everything from how we treat the high tech industry to what to do with people that are here illegally.
And all sorts of things in between so it's not unusual.
And most of the amendments quite frankly very productive they're designed to make the bill better because here's the good news the good news is the vast majority of Americans understand.
And believe in support an immigration reform package in fact today a letter was released.
24 conservative groups saying we support immigration reform if if you take measures to ensure that this never ever happens again what people are saying as.
We'll do immigration reform but only if you make sure this never happens again we don't get another wave of illegal immigration that is a very reasonable request and I think that's -- -- -- many of these amendments are aiming to accomplish.
What what do you make of the fact that -- Jim dement who was -- with the Tea Party until he's in there in the senate as well until he went on over to The Heritage Foundation.
Is essentially you guys -- at loggerheads over immigration heritage came out with a study that said that if this immigration bill goes through it's gonna cost the federal government.
At least six point three trillion dollars in you know.
All the entitlements and it other things that the immigrants who wind of getting through the course of their lives.
Well first of I have tremendous respect for -- and especially from Jim -- as a personal friend and mentor and we worked together on virtually everything we have a disagreement.
On how best to do immigration reform I dispute that report and strongest possible terms it's based on assumptions that just aren't accurate.
They're basically claiming that all these people that are -- here we'll all become citizens and that they will all be poor for the rest of their lives that's absurd.
They're claiming the based -- a quarter of the cost that they calculate for those over fifty years and a quarter of the cost that they claim -- for things like parks and roads and police.
Things are paying for with -- without them is my last point the Social Security Administration yesterday sent me a letter in response to my letter.
Their letter basically says that immigration reform as we have structured it.
Will grow the economy the United States it will add jobs and it will help -- it'll be -- net positive for Social Security we've got that letter yesterday.
The fact is if we do immigration reform right.
It will be good for America it will be good for our economy -- make a saver safer and Oprah and Oprah protect our sovereignty.
Well the ball is in the -- court right now let's see what happens senator Marco Rubio join us from capitol.
-- thank you very much.
