Has been on the store the very beginning Jason shape is the first lawmaker on the ground in Libya digging for answers they -- the days after the attack.
He went to Tripoli he's live now back in his home state of -- -- -- good morning to you.
But -- ago why now.
I don't know I don't know what the new information that the government certainly has the file these charges these are sealed charges I'd be very curious is it.
What these charges are they could make them public they don't have to be sealed.
If there equivalent of say yes subpoena to a terrorist on -- battlefield the real question is is the government committed.
Is present Obama committed to capture and kill these people.
At this point almost -- -- months afterwards it doesn't appear so you don't think he's committed even after this.
Well I guess what's a little bit -- scratches your head is a little bit offensive as to suggest that this is they.
Top priority of the United States government it hasn't been for eleven months the most critical time of any investigation.
Is those are those days and weeks -- after it took our FBI almost eighteen days to even get to big guys -- You've had numerous reporters from Fox News the Wall Street Journal and CNN repeatedly going to talk to one of these people.
That is now charged we had another person that was incarcerated -- another country we couldn't even work with that government to even talk to the person let alone.
Grab him or haven't turned over to the United States of America.
There's not much evidence that that the federal government here the Obama administration has been committed.
To bringing justice to the terrorists and I -- before America I keep coming back to the question of why I mean obviously don't think it's a priority for them whiner line.
I don't know why what what I've always wanted from the very beginning is that they have the same sort of tenacity in getting after these terrorists we kill we killed four Americans.
Remember the other thing it's very important about Ben -- is.
It was bombed once that it was bombed a second time and there were no consequences we didn't go after the people who bombed -- the second time.
And it to me that was a precursor for what with the -- -- tragic events of September 11 itself.
When you don't take care of the problem it just investors now you have these terrorists who are still out there.
And that's what we're so worried about as we don't want this to happen again do you think it's because certain reporters certain media outlets are hot on the trail of this story.
Putting the pressure on -- those.
I mean what what does not explain so -- you got a new FBI director is that part of the explanation the rationale now.
Well -- -- it was just last week eleven of us in the house and the senate that straight -- and that Lindsey Graham and others we joined chairman -- so we sent a letter -- encouraging the FBI to get actively involved in this.
Then suddenly you're one of the other networks that CN is doing an hour long special.
And within hours of their promotion of those commercials these charges are filed.
I don't know maybe that's just a coincidence that it happened within hours after eleven months but part of me -- my head and says.
What we just have to keep after because.
Those families deserve answers -- we as a country have to -- capture or kill those terrorist maybe it's just a coincidence but.
It really is asked you know it's just begs more question Stephen Hayes results with -- an hour ago he says this is an insult.
And you wonder how the families take its.
Well remember it was President Obama who said al-Qaeda was on the run that that that we were winning all of this.
And yet we had four Americans killed and then the administration rather them prior ties in this making it truly a -- top priority.
Was out there misleading the world saying always just -- video and when you have the secretary of state.
Months after the fact when you have Hillary Clinton herself saying what difference does that make.
You understand it sure attitude of not only Hillary Clinton but President Obama.
And now here we are eleven months later for them to say -- well this is a top priority why wasn't -- the top priority when Secretary Clinton testified before congress.
Months after the attack it wasn't that and and you know charges are one thing but apprehension and hunting him down as a whole different deal we'll see whether or not they go that far one other point here.
Five weeks from today is September 11.
We will be one year removed at that point Jason shape -- thank you for your time back home in Salt Lake City and Utah.
