I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight does Ben -- really matter.
That is -- subject of this evening's talking points -- many on the left are echoing Hillary Clinton's assertion.
That it doesn't really matter who screwed up security and report Hodge in Ben -- -- The fact is we have four dead Americans what I had to make protest it was a because of guys out for a walk one -- decide they go kill some Americans.
What difference at this point does it make.
-- went on to say the important thing is that the killers be brought to justice and that kind of terror attack never happen again.
But there is no question that the hearings yesterday were embarrassing for the Obama administration and for Hillary Clinton.
But immediately the left wing spin found its way into the media.
And why then does he is generally emerged as a rallying cry for the president's opponents.
When during the Bush Administration there were.
54 attacks on diplomatic targets that killed thirteen Americans.
Yet garnered only three hearings on embassy security.
And zero outrage.
So why is this -- so different for Republicans.
Well here's the answer.
Stewart referring to a study by the University of Maryland that pinpointed terror attacks in January 2001 to December 2008.
But when you study this study.
That many -- -- -- attacks occurred in Iraq during the war.
And none of the attacks were at the level of in -- Not even close.
Should also be noted that Jon Stewart apparently got his information from the far left web -- media matters in the Daily Kos.
But let's get back to the matter at hand.
The most riveting testimony yesterday was delivered by Gregory -- second in command in Libya under the slain ambassador Christopher Stephens.
hicks described in vivid detail how he tried to get help for the Americans under siege -- -- got.
But was not able to secure cooperation in Washington.
After showing his displeasure with that.
Gregory hicks was demoted.
By Hillary Clinton.
That is unacceptable.
-- government is a cornerstone of our democracy there's no question no question.
The State Department screwed up in Libya and mr.
-- by all indications.
Told the truth.
And he was punished for doing.
Today's figure it -- John Boehner said congress would continue its investigation and Hillary Clinton certainly needs to come back to testify.
Clinton is up to her eyeballs in this.
Of course that has political implications for the Democratic Party.
Because she may very well run for president in 2016.
Bottom line Americans need to know the truth about what happened in my -- Why our government misled the world.
And why they did not respond with more urgency.
On the day of the attack.
We all -- know that and that's the memo.
-- the top story tonight.
One of those killed along with ambassador Stevens was 34 year old Sean Patrick Smith he was an information officer with the US foreign service serving -- -- September 14 2012.
Smith was eulogize by President Obama.
Sean Smith it seems live to serve.
First in the air force -- Review of the State Department.
He knew the barrels of this -- and from his time in Baghdad.
And there and been -- far from home he surely thought of -- and Samantha Nathan.
And he laid down his life.
Join us now from Washington pat Smith -- -- -- Chris well Heather is.
Is the widow and than their two children how old -- the children and mrs.
Ten and nine OK -- and so.
We have a situation here where the president I think his remarks were heartfelt they -- sincere to me but there was no follow law is that right.
Did you what did you want.
Secretary of state Clinton and the president to do.
-- -- somebody to tell me why this was done.
Now why didn't know why there was no security there when he was asked for it was -- they begged -- to -- to have security.
And -- instead it was taken away.
All right ten that you wanted to full explanation.
Before the attack it it's documented that.
Did your son ever by the way ever talk to you about that he felt uneasy would not enough security in Libya.
Yes as a matter of fact he called me the day he died.
To tell me that there was someone out there taking pictures of the the com founder of the area over there.
And he was really concerned about it.
So he was concerned about his own security.
Obviously the State Department did that provide enough security for the four Americans who were killed and they -- asked a month ahead of time forehead and it was and give it.
So you wanna know -- who turned it down.
And when you hear Hillary Clinton say listen.
It's all in the past what's important is that we prevent to suffer happening again what do you say -- that.
I think how come somebody hasn't told me about how come somebody has got.
Owned up to their decisions.
And I'm so afraid so very afraid -- Other people dead.
Are serving our country are going to be treated the same way my front Kent -- can get ready god but what about the ones that follow.
And how about the guys that that did finally come up Indians didn't -- their their they're concerned how come they got demoted why is that.
Yeah I mean I very very gambling on the -- on the mr.
Did Hillary Clinton say anything viewed it -- Obama today did they say anything to you lamenting.
There are told me about the the reason that this happen was the video.
Everywhere you guys don't hold you there was a video both secretary of state Clinton and the president told you was the videotape.
Yes they actually did and turns and right up -- Face to face.
That -- -- -- I would put they were hugging me.
And that was.
Three days after the attack correct.
Normally never why doesn't it it wasn't that the ceremony September 14 three days after the attack yet less disturbing.
Do you believe there's some kind of conspiracy cover -- thing going on here or use.
I don't know I don't know what the reason is I have no idea the reason I -- I asked them including.
As well I -- I asked them all every one of them all have been the -- and Biden and in Hillary and in Obama I asked him please please tell me what the story is what why did this happen.
