This unfolding story and -- it will affect the presidential race former special assistant to president George W.
Bush Ron Christie insurance in the studio here.
Also within -- Former freedom watch President Bush -- Brad like when Brian good to have you.
Of let's let's start there Brennan remain with you this is becoming -- -- and unwieldy wait for this administration.
Surely they understand how.
How urgent it is that the record be set straight and soon.
-- here's where the cover up -- they're trying to cover their tracks by saying initially.
The intelligence services were telling them that it was -- spontaneous attack.
But the key questions Lou is what did the president know when did he know it and -- to the narrative change.
We did the president ask questions was east was debriefed in person or did he rely as he has come to rely.
On paper reports one thing is for sure Lou and that's this if this had happened in New York -- -- ambassadors was picked off on the streets of New York.
And our consulate New York to the UN was damaged in the way it was.
In Libya there would have been hell to pay that would have been a much stiffer response what's the difference.
Between where our ambassadors get picked off by terrorists whether be in the streets of New York or in -- Ghazi.
How is it possible.
That the administration and the president who should have superior knowledge to any subordinate allows us support -- to go out and tell multiple storage the American people.
Over a period of time.
Now the congress I believe Louis fed up and the DN I report which now suggest that this was.
A terrorist attack the White House is a lot of answers and thank god for Fox News for being tenacious enough to cause the mainstream media not to ignore this.
Romance but let's turn to this issue that that.
-- -- is is flying out reports and that is now we have -- correcting if you will.
Initial impressions or at least.
A a view.
But at the same time that contradicts.
More recent assertions that they knew within 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack.
It seems that this is beginning to come around.
This administration is being.
It's seems to be compounding the the mistakes of judgment.
Or the outright intentional.
Of reality to the American people.
I think that's exactly right -- it does need to start with a Director of National Intelligence it starts with our national counterterrorism director who came out and testified on Capitol Hill and said that it was.
A terrorist attack it was a coordinated attack it was indirect fire was direct fire.
Now you have been DI coming out with with his statement.
But for me the most important and the most significant thing we've learned today Lou is that all the members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee John Kerry the chairman who was also allegedly.
I'm doing debate preparations with President Obama this week and but in a bipartisan and unanimous show of support have said.
The American people deserve and demand no answers to what happened and that this administration has been less than forthcoming at best.
Misleading at worst and lying if if you -- -- actually get down to it.
To the American people to make the president's political fortunes look better over the tragic death of ambassador -- -- Americans.
Is set to spend the next three days.
With the president.
Outside Las Vegas hatteras or they're preparing -- of that debate.
-- can only imagine attention that might exist between the two.
Brad let let's let's turn to the issue what the Republicans are doing what specifically governor Romney is doing.
And why there is such eat -- -- it is and a -- lack of coordination.
Of interest in this issue amongst governor.
John Boehner Mitch McConnell and the other leaders of the Republican Party including of course RNC chairman write scripts.
We should have united front.
This is clearly a cover up I believe.
That the administration lied because it didn't follow their political narrative that Osama bin Laden's dead and GM is alive Osama bin Laden may be dead that's a great thing.
But al-Qaeda is alive and well and its affiliates and they killed -- US ambassador and three other Americans.
And -- I agree with you -- where is the outrage the legitimate outrage.
On the part of Republicans to come out the united front to get to the bottom of this I think this story is going to have legs because it gets worse every day.
And I think we should be -- dodging Kerry now and every move and say what are you doing.
As a member of the senate.
In order to get to the bottom of this you signed a letter now mr.
-- what are you doing about it and the president has to be.
Held to account at the debate even though the I think domestic debate on Wednesday Romney should cool question -- -- Are your thoughts right now -- the last -- we want you -- -- -- were here.
Look I've -- -- Moines Iowa for the last two days and people out there that I spoke to are very frustrated about what's going on Washington they believe the administration's covering this up.
They don't want this white -- they want answers and I think the president's political fortunes could take a tumble based on what we've seen in the last one -- 48 hours.
If they are not forthcoming and honest with the American people about what happened and transpired and been Ghazi.
I think president Obama's fortunes are gonna go a lot lower supposed to up in the next days to come and think you're trying to -- -- and.
