-- house foreign affairs committee.
Is hearing on the Ghazi undersecretary for management Patrick Kennedy is in the hot seat was in the hot city hot seat.
I'm gonna bring in now Republican representative.
Ted yo -- from Florida.
He is on the house foreign affairs committee had to shed some light.
On what happened with mr.
Kennedy today so did we get a lot of information out of him.
-- Laura I think we did I I think we welcome the information we got we've got a long way to go.
But any time we get closer to what went wrong in -- I think it's a great way.
To proceed and it's a great thing for the American people because they want answers.
In the original.
Information that came out of this was that the accountability review board.
Said -- kind of put it to the middle management this was not something that the senior.
Management of State Department really kind of took.
Hold -- did we get closer to understanding really who call the shots on this.
Yet we did we have a line of question.
Questioning today that brought that out you know who's responsible for the -- ordinance under you and it went to the manager and who's the managers.
-- they held accountable buying in it was a superiors.
And so that's coming out and middle point two secretary of state is.
We're all these decisions you know the buck has to stop somewhere.
And I think that'll come out of this eventually.
And you know the important thing as.
Four Americans lost their lives for American families will never see their father brother.
Sun come home again and the Americans want accountability and that's a phrase that -- in in the halls of congress all the time.
But when you look at so many of these -- reports in your freedom there is no accountability nobody wants to be in charge.
And that's gonna stop I mean that's that -- to stop.
Have we concluded that security in big Ghazi was not good enough I -- is not.
The understanding we've concluded that now the decision is it is Hillary Clinton responsible for that lack of security.
Well that's that's the questioning because.
The reports that came out and a lot of arguments coming from.
My and my friends on the other side of the aisle.
So that we need to move forward.
But yet to move forward we have to study the pass in the 1999.
-- RB report.
Which is the accountability review board -- did that.
The secretary of state had to be involved in all security questions -- to protect the personnel.
At those embassies and that falls on -- Secretary Clinton and you know these four people weren't.
Are protected and we know was from a lack of us security it was not from a lack of money even though that some people wanted to argue that.
The -- the facts are out there in this instance it was not a lack of money it was a lack of security and decisions and a lack of management and a mismanagement at upper levels.
You know what -- it sounds like some kind of mismanagement.
Is going on adding that we're looking up but is there any sense of there was an got cover up.
Ambassador Kennedy came out said this was an act of terror and he just said we we -- knew that after the video.
The -- you know for the two and a half weeks that they ran around.
But they they did fess up today and said it was an act of terror we know was an act of -- so.
I think you're gonna find out more facts that come out and as more facts come out somebody's going to be held accountable.
And those of people at the top obviously.
I don't have thank you very much sent -- yes -- -- yellow Republican from Florida.
-- house foreign affairs committee thank you so much.
