-- I -- to transition to another topic you've been very involved with this week several hearings on the hill regarding Ben Ghazi who want to play a little bit of a snippet of what you had to say.
In the midst of one of those hearings this week.
It would seem to me that the president should be just as concerned about Americans dying -- -- -- as he is about Syrians died in Syria.
Congressman had to using -- do you believe that the president is not truly is concerned is he should be about what happened and then -- -- getting to the bottom of the truth.
The proof is in the actions the president said right after the attack in the murder of but yet nothing's happened no one administration's been held accountable for their incompetence -- in -- Americans behind.
And just as important nobody's being captured.
Andy's the leader do -- -- and being interviewed on on our television by our reporters sit in a hotel in being Gaza and we can't go get this guy.
So it shows that the -- credibility of the United States in capturing people who murder Americans is very weak.
With Americans and so let's hold people accountable in the administration State Department.
And more importantly go after the bad guys this country can do that we just haven't done it surprise president seems to have -- priority somewhere else other than captured.
These -- what -- president did mention what we believe was supposed to be under seal or secret to some extent.
The fact of the Justice Department has indicted specific suspects.
In this particular case is -- for you at least a sign of progress moving forward.
Well it's a -- that we know who did it.
Now let's go capture the the terrorists from ans are Al Sharia that took credit the next day who have been indicted in this.
Murder and that's capture those individuals working with the the Libyan people order protective captured him so we know who did it why are they in custody that's my question.
After a year.
Are you encouraged by the fact that your counterpart -- GOP colleague over on house oversight committee.
It announces -- realizes now that he's going to subpoenaed to key State Department employees.
In an effort to get their side of the story.
Well yes -- god he's not going away no matter what people want our site that they wanted to just move on down the road it was a long time ago I think that was the word from the administration.
Members of the house and the chairman of the terrorism subcommittee and other committees are -- to continue to pursue bin -- -- we get.
They get the truth and we hope people accountable both the killers that people who showed I think incompetence in our own government.
Our congress until we thank you very much for your time again we'll be speaking with your colleague -- angle from across the aisle shortly thank you served.
-- I want to turn to something you were very involved in this week in his hearings on that -- is still.
A look for answers there we had to Republican counterpart your colleague Ted Cohen a little bit earlier.
And -- been a lot of questions about that accountability review board and whether it was truly independent.
From any influence from then secretary says Hillary Clinton or anyone else.
What is your confidence level in AA RB and what we learn from that I have a.
-- confidence level and because for several you're you're talking about two individuals.
And our chairman of Mullen chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Did both in impeccable people -- mr.
Pickering worked in Republican administrations.
They are not going to whitewash anything they they're trying to get to the bottom of what happened -- for me Ben Ghazi is not so much of where we can assess blame.
It's to make sure no big guys he's ever happen again.
While realizing that there are terrorists all over the world that want to do us harm.
And that they rear their ugly heads -- -- we see what's happening there today and in Kenya.
So for me it's to make sure that we do not have any more than -- -- there is a report that they issued -- 26 recommendations.
Hillary Clinton adopted all of those.
And and I'm I'm satisfied with -- I mean some of my colleagues seem.
Accessed -- heads rolling gore trying to point the finger at Hillary Clinton -- try to soften her up because she's.
Doing so well in the polls for potential Tony sixteen run and an interest -- that I'm interest in making sure.
That this is the last time it happens knowing full well.
And high risk areas there and these these things are going to.
And what about the reality that the the DOJ -- has indicted people know it's been arrested at FBI has not been able to talk to key members.
Should there be more pressure from our White House from our leadership from our president on the Libyan government to help less and that effort.
You know it's been more than a year later these families and and people are still waiting for someone to be held accountable for four Americans debt well.
I want someone to be arrested I'm just as frustrated as anybody but we were told that that they going through the actions to try to find the people that did it.
I'm confident that they will I think someone obviously should be arrested whoever perpetrated the at this heinous act.
But I don't want to see politicized I really don't I I think that Democrats and Republicans have equal.
A charge in in finding out what really happened and I don't want to come becomes if partisan finger pointing I think that's.
I have faith in in in in from in the admiral I have faith in the ambassador.
I don't think that report is whitewash -- Hillary Clinton has what has it had implemented all 26 of the recommendations and then some.
And and let's make sure that the congress.
Plays its part in and puts forward money to to make sure that our our brave citizens that are all around the world in harm's way.
Are protected we need more money for embassy security.
I'd like to lead that charge and let me say in the foreign affairs committee and in in a bipartisan way.
We we are trying to to come up with ways to ensure.
That -- panels that it in the future are are less controversial but I have amazing confidence in in in in these two gentlemen and I.
I have no reason to doubt anything.
Congressman -- always good to see you thanks for coming and thank you.
