I grew up in small town America.
As a kid I worked in a dairy.
My father and grandfather both fought in World War II.
There were a lot of Constance in my life things I could rely on church on Sundays the pledge of allegiance -- school.
The love and support of mom and dad and the fact that I lived in the greatest country in the world where every day dreams come true.
The last Wednesday as I sat in a congressional hearing room on a rainy day in Washington DC.
Listening to whistle blowers riveting accounts of what happened the -- Ghazi.
On the night ambassador Chris Stevens Sean Smith -- Woodson Glenn Dorgan were killed.
My heart broke.
Hello and welcome to justice on just -- -- thanks for joining us tonight.
I spent my career assigning blame for wrongdoing.
Instructing jurors on -- -- was says the truth telling them to use their common sense in deciding who was credible.
Who has something to gain something to lose -- -- a motive to lie.
Telling them it's someone wise once you're free to assume that lied to you again.
And there is something about the truth when you hear it is simply no way.
On the night he died ambassador Chris Stevens called whistle blower Greg -- to say were under attack the statement.
And hicks did everything he was supposed to.
Activating the emergency response plan mobilizing a team to repel the attack.
Calling the state department's operation center.
Continuously updating the operations center throughout the night.
Even chartering a plane to fly to Tripoli response team to Ben -- At some point -- realized he was being left out of all decision making and that the order had been given to stand down.
There would be rescue.
We now know the Obama administration lied to us they misled us and they left Americans to die.
So what do we know.
Backed the president knew with 5 PM his consulate and ambassador were under attack.
He simply told joint chiefs chairman Dempsey and Defense Secretary Panetta to take care of it.
He simply went to bed he didn't even bother to call never checking with them again.
Backed the next morning the president takes Air Force One to fly to a Las Vegas fund raiser for himself.
While Americans -- in the Middle East can -- Air Force One for campaign fund raiser but he can't send fighter jets to -- Americans.
The fight lasted eight hours.
Fact there was no spontaneous demonstration.
No YouTube video that ignited the murderous fury and -- -- and they all knew it.
It's not one fact with each fact taken together is a connected -- that convinces us of what the -- -- And that true.
Jay Carney Susan Rice Hillary Clinton Barack Obama they all lied to -- Now I'm tired of the sugar coating.
I'm tired of putting truth to the falsehood.
A lie is a lie is a lie.
Let's call it what it is.
The whistle blowers changed everything.
The ones who were instructed by Hillary's chief of staff Cheryl Mills not to speak to anyone alone about Ben -- including congressman.
-- hicks says it best.
The job now is it.
A significant it's a demotion so I've been effectively demoted from deputy chief of mission to desk officer.
President with all due respect you actually didn't -- the man who was on the phone all night scrambling to get help.
Destroying your classified records chartering a plane taking on the terrorists by himself.
Why would you do that why would you devote a hero and why would you -- -- what's.
On top line.
Because of a looming presidential election seven weeks away.
Because Americans can't be under attack especially not a terrorist attack if in -- say.
Is -- -- on its heels.
President how could you not send in reinforcements.
How could you not send -- Americans trained for this very kind of emergency.
-- the commander in chief that's your job.
And enter Hillary Clinton.
Backed because the -- godly consulate security was -- sub standard he could only have been inhabited.
If you had issued the waiver.
Fact your department continuously denied both ambassador Stevens and deputy chief of mission hicks request for more security.
Act you actually were -- security what everyone knew of the threats in the prior assault on -- Ghazi.
Don't even begin to try to sell us the idea.
That it was about saving money because Jerome staffer Charlayne lamb who supposedly was dismissed.
Swore that the three sources were not an issue.
And my sources tell me lamb is now up for an even higher -- the State Department.
Why would she do this.
I did tell the accountability review board that.
Secretary Clinton wanted the post made permanent.
Oh OK now we know.
You wanted to arrive on your chariot and announce the establishment.
Of the permanent mission in a normalized.
When you last visited Libya in you have the Defense Department reposition assets off the Libyan coast.
In case you needed rescue.
How could you.
And then you swear under oath just back from weeks abroad.
Logging all those miles recovering from the flu befall the concussion and the blood clot.
You testified you know nothing about your friend the ambassador's request for more security.
Any of the request any of the cables having to do to secure with security did not that come to my attention.
I know you were busy that night calling the president of Tunisia.
-- all the action was in Libya.
But you can't deny requests for more security in Ben Ghazi and then blame the very people who asked for it it can't have it both ways.
And you want us to believe that you and the president are going to get the facts and get justice.
You can't even get to the FBI.
To the crime scene for three weeks and by the way the FBI guys think carry guns don't think.
If it takes them three weeks because it wasn't safe in -- godly.
Hot and -- if it's safe enough for you to keep our civilian diplomats there.
And what to do.
Find some guys -- impeccable reputations.
Beholden to your husband bill and ambassador named Pickering an.
-- -- -- Had -- investigate.
And make sure they don't ask you any questions or talk to the guy in charge of the emergency response.
And Pickering he's perfect.
He apparently believes America is already full of -- of folks.
And why you're -- -- Hillary why not throw the president of Libya under the bus to.
The man who traveled to Ben -- at great personal risk.
Confirming almost immediately what you -- -- knew that it was a terror attack.
You basically call him a liar or clueless to the rest of the world.
And how about your take on our money.
You take it and -- an advertisement to apologize to the Arab world about a video that has nothing to do with bank Gaza while they burn -- in effigy.
That'll keep the -- going to.
Say were obsessed with bank Gaza.
The New York Times says that.
Our Ben Ghazi obsession is all about hysterical allegations of crimes.
Equal the Watergate.
Good memory may not be all that great but nobody died at Watergate.
And no one was left on the battlefield.
Our congress though they are good they'll get to the truth.
I find it truly disturbing.
And and very unfortunate.
-- that when Americans come under attack.
The first thing some did in this country.
Was attack Americans.
Attacked the military.
Attack the president attacked the State Department.
The former senator from the great State of New York former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
You're kidding right.
We have the best military in the world but even with all of -- -- -- -- advances.
They could not get bear in time.
Now this guy hasn't even heard the testimony and he's already accusing the man who has spent the US the most the lose.
His own life and who was actually on the ground and in the battle of lying.
And it gets worse.
Yeah it is a part of life.
What difference at this point does it make.
It's isn't there saying enough with the dead an -- -- the living until my next election.
And remember this one.
The White House and State Department.
And make clear that the single adjustment that was made those talking points by either of those two of these two institutions -- changing the work consulate.
To diplomatic facility because consulate was inaccurate.
Today we know that was a bold faced lie.
There -- twelve deletions of references to terrorism at the instruction of the White House and the State Department.
Hillary intense woman that temple -- veracity Victorian -- Actually tells the CIA.
To remove any reference to the prior Ben got these security warnings because it could be used against Hillary.
But my favorite.
There just wasn't enough time.
Listen to this one from seven months ago.
Monday morning quarterbacking going on here basic principle is that you don't deployed forces.
Into harm's way.
Without -- What's going -- without having some real time information.
It wasn't enough time.
How did you know the fight would last 24.
Or 48 hours or more in which case you could have gotten rescuers there.
You could have saved Americans -- you didn't even start the process.
Because you -- no intention.
But saving those lives.
Should be ashamed of yourself.
Yes Wednesday was a sad day for me personally.
For the families of those killed.
And for any American.
Who believes as I do.
That America is the citadel of honoring freedom.
This past week the dreams that I have as a little girl -- that small town were shattered.
