Well he held a key position you look at the chain of command of what happened being -- was in charge -- special forces for North Africa.
-- you -- pentagon hit him for a long time they told us repeatedly over a long period of time.
That this person had retired they didn't have an email they didn't have an address they couldn't get in contact with them.
And then a while lie and ends up he was still on active duty so now he's finally on Wednesday and appear before the armed services committee.
What did he know what did he know -- what was his involvement what did he know in the lead up to -- -- what happened that night and then what was there anything nefarious going on with the cover up.

People kernels full bird colonel there in the somebody actively involved in the in the Marines.
Identified as somebody who is retired that they couldn't identify -- in order was.
Ends -- -- in Woodbridge just a few miles south of Washington DC had not yet retired.
I find that a bit curious in the whole string of things that have happened here and -- Ghazi just to add it to the list.
Some of the incompetence.
Or deception from the Pentagon -- -- it's one of the other.
But they did not let us know where he was and then what we had a -- story out about it they said well he actually is still involved so which.
When -- suspicion -- competence or deceitful.
It's -- it's it's the fact that we're getting into eleven months we have four dead Americans.
And we don't have an administration that will give us the truth we have another deposition nobody knows about this we have a deposition tomorrow.
That is going to happen we got a document dump today.
From the State Department.

That I agreed not to -- that there -- name but they're gonna -- become -- out which we've been doing these depositions and regular order.
We've been trying to get as much information out there we have to go do subpoenas German -- has been very good at doing this.
Then they come in and say -- okay well we're not gonna do adept at you we want to a deposition able go ahead do it formal interview.
-- that -- happen tomorrow.
I think colonel -- is going to testify behind closed doors as I understand their.
Why in the world need to and it will be done behind closed doors to me why not could open transparency and -- there's something that comes up that's classified you can throw everybody out how it's done all the time instead -- -- Washington.
A disease where everything has declassified so that we don't find out what's going on.
-- it is a real probably over classification of so many documents and hearings.
I think this'll be a good precursor but I think -- you see the congress get into the fall.
I know chairman -- myself others we're going to have a series of open transparent in front of the American people.
Hearings on Ben got.
Anyway so yeah -- -- starting Wednesday when the current office.
I didn't set this up I I'm not the chairman of the armed services committee I hopefully they're kind enough to invite me to this meeting.
But yes this will be a classified meeting as we've had other classified -- and I want them out in the open.
And you know what and I urge every person who's watching this that watches and do right is congressman senator -- stop all this business about a retaining classified because it -- Very very suspicious to me but anyway Cashman.
