I just think it's a -- from the administration.
They're not taking it seriously it's not a priority really offensive to the victims here and we owed to victims to catch these terrorist for him to adjust -- That was Republican congressman Mike -- Texas chairman of the house homeland security committee.
Upset about the fact that terrorists responsible for the deadly attack on our consulate in Ben Ghazi.
Are still at large he is leading an effort to find out why those suspects.
Are missing from a State Department program that offers rewards for information on terrorists four Americans died of Ben Ghazi attack more than a year ago.
Including our ambassador Chris Stevens.
Our next guest also sits on the house.
Security committee joining us now is New York congressman Peter King congressman great to see you.
Thank -- -- so the State Department in 1984.
Set up this program called the rewards for justice program and it is.
To garner tips to help find terrorists.
Who was convicted in the first World Trade Center bombing was found using.
Why wouldn't the suspects.
For Ben Ghazi be a part of this program.
House and I agree complete -- Mike McCall I don't see any logical answer to this at all.
To -- that should have been done and it should be part of a whole pattern we've seen -- -- Since September 11 won twelve with the administration has never been forthcoming.
They gave forty reasons why the attack was held in the first place that -- about the video they claimed it was a spontaneous demonstration.
Not a terrorist attack we still don't know where the present -- that I we have no idea what he did the day before when you're having meetings about security.
So that so many unanswered questions there's another one which should -- shows almost a lack of enthusiasm on the part of the administration and it that's a very harsh charge to make but.
I see no other answer to that.
It really does it's -- mystifying this rewards for justice program has spent a 125.
And again it works it has drummed up tips from eighty people and it has captured scores of terrorists so the idea that -- -- not.
It just makes you think that as congress and McCall said they're not taking it seriously or they don't want to find the suspect.
It's because some reason this slow walking this and they again there's been a lack of energy and enthusiasm.
Ever since -- did he attacks of September 11.
2012 -- to be consistent -- was administration policy and you know there's not a nickel that's going to be spent yet unless.
So when turns in the terrorist so it's not a question wasting money the only way that that -- -- dollars spent.
Usually is if -- person to dissolve through the -- so this is money well spent and has worked in the past your right to work with him -- groups have.
And the fact is the type of thing that it should be done almost automatically.
In the case of this magnitude and do we -- all we felt an obligation.
To those four men who were killed -- in Gaza.
We did not carry out we had to do for them the very least we can do about them memory and their families is -- -- we had to apprehend those who part of them.
And right now there's really -- and they I think -- distinct lack of effort.
Congress in the fact that it's been a year and that we have not arrested or prosecuted any suspect.
Even know we even have names and we have some photographs of people there that night it does defy logic -- -- and -- -- let us know what you find out.
As you -- -- on the story thanks so much for being off.
