Explosive testimony on Capitol Hill yesterday over -- -- 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.
-- Sarah's reaction.
Florida senator Marco Rubio.
Senator it warranted.
Like -- 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 Ghazi 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.
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 diplomatic its security.
Third apparently they didn't give enough response teams to respond to any sort of attack.
Now there are people saying that maybe there's something we could have done for the second wave of the attack but they didn't 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.
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 no -- 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 -- -- 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 shot up.
And move on later he was -- reprimanded he'd always had a great reviews and then he was demoted.
From the 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 this 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 -- -- 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 he's 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.
I think that was the political motivation behind it what I think it's sad.
It's 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 time.
