-- the impact segment tonight a bombshell allegation from Virginia congressman Frank Wolf.
About how the Obama administration is treating survivors of last year's terrorist attack in Ben -- According to trusted sources that are contact in my office many if not all the survivors.
A that they got the attacks along with others at the Department of Defense -- CIA had been asked or direct bit.
To sign -- -- should run nondisclosure.
About their involvement in the big Gaza attack.
But earlier this year the White House insisted.
It had nothing to hide.
The sort White House certainly not preventing anybody from having access to any of the survivors of the Ben -- -- And today -- State Department spokesman denied congressman -- allegations.
As part of their employment most department in -- -- -- classified information nondisclosure agreement.
However the department has not asked employees and we stressed not asked employees to sign any separate nondisclosure agreements regarding events and then got the.
Joining us now Fox News military analyst colonel David -- Author of the novel terror read and from Washington Fox -- strategic analyst lieutenant colonel Ralph Peters the author of a new novel hell -- Richmond.
Could have -- -- -- here -- the colonel hunt let me start with you.
Any big deal about these folks being asked to sign nondisclosure.
Think guys -- -- you know it's a huge deal could be lost for Americans yes and -- the way we didn't prepare and do everything go after helpful but the non disclosure is signed by everybody.
The issue is that -- this government mistress does not make it available.
People who -- in this fight.
Understand what really happened but did not disclosure issue specifically is a non issue some of them -- were signed as recently as this summer is that a little.
To light after the fact to be decided to sign these -- greens I understand.
It in advance of one's career are an assignment but after something like this has happened is that the appropriate way to go back and asked -- that.
Put a lid on -- -- that is that it was administrative again that the issue is we're not getting them allow people to talk.
ABC people could be talking in class by debriefing the -- But it's shadow overshadowing the fact that it was disaster leading -- the -- that we -- rescue them and it's over year.
We don't we're still talking of his career not very well handled and still we don't have it as we need a non disclosure though.
It's pretty it's fairly straightforward when you working class -- operations -- cease.
Colonel traders weigh in on this because so will we have no clue what really happened and why we didn't send forces into at least makes it -- is nothing happened that night.
Well certainly nothing good happened that night.
Personal congressman wolf.
Isn't one of those hair on fire crazies get on both sides of the -- in the house he's very level headed businesslike.
Really solid American -- enormously vice constituents.
-- I -- one by the way.
So what I would certainly say he wouldn't launched on warning on this one.
-- but this administration.
It's -- cynical.
That's made an art.
Stonewalling and told -- press loses interest and that's certainly what they've done in this case and they do not want.
Anyone dredging this back up we're talking to anyone that was involved they don't want us to know what wasn't done that night.
They don't want to know what requests may have urgently been made and denied.
They don't want us to know what additional requests for security were made in advance but what concerns were expressed.
This administration believes it's very post modern that the truth is infinitely malleable.
And the truth is what they say -- and the rest of us can just take a hike.
Another issue to surface today is over a CIA.
Wanted by Italy -- relationship to a rendition situation.
Found in Panama apparently -- now back in US hands.
Did the United States mishandled that situation colonel hunt.
This a travesty is that in 2003.
And operation approved by the Italian government.
The US government CIA and -- come apart in the -- Italian government.
We took a very bad guy have to street -- wanna -- -- gets dismissed in the Italian gets released not a mistake.
But we've got out of what these -- government approved the gist of Arctic Armitage -- government when -- -- -- he wind -- and the Interpol list in Panama.
State Department now gets -- -- -- -- -- the problem is that these great guys.
Men and women serve like this because we does not let the certainly since then eleven deserve better treatment.
And the beyond and -- DePaul what one of the list for doing their damn jobs this doesn't happen again approved operation and I and so we beat them terribly handled.
And an Italian government has kind of -- broke said okay.
But how dare pin lock in Italy are friends even think about -- -- like this.
Outraged a colonel -- way out of this because is this symptomatic of something bigger the administration -- is just one big -- up that we had with the and misunderstanding with the Italians.
I think there's -- The way international diplomacy and relations really work.
He was on the Interpol list he'd been tried in 2003 because he was a station chief in Milan.
When we snatched extraordinary rendition.
A radical -- off the streets and carted him off.
And the Italians tried all 33 Americans.
And others in -- -- -- This -- station she -- mr.
lady got nine years later reduced to six.
And you just linger in its list out it's about Italian domestic politics.
The Italian law left and some elements of law enforcement had -- -- Paul active hit and one -- -- yeah.
The Italian government I think was probably blind sided when he is actually picked up from Costa Rica and Panama.
The perfect solution Panamanians didn't -- and they didn't -- Italians get safe while we try.
Well on that I've got to say Rivera pitching to both of you and thank you colonel thank you -- how bad I feel so under ranked here I really do.
