Joining us now Fox News national security analyst KT McFarland she's held national security post under presidents Nixon Ford and Reagan.
KT let's start with the Washington Post getting this next round of sensitive documents.
Apparently lying on the floor of the consulate in been Ghazi.
Compound of what is I understand it is basically two dollars and there this is outrageous.
Three weeks later we can't even -- the FBI and because it's too dangerous up a couple of reporters are going and they're picking up.
Documents sensitive documents talking about who the people are that we're working with in Libya endangering their lives just three weeks later with some insecure about -- And having not secured because we have no personnel apparently reports through security.
In -- I mean I.
Our friends people in the FBI -- have the highest respect it's.
One of my oldest friends is that via via an -- and the idea.
That they're making the FB had looked like basically what we atlas independent.
I don't wanna come.
Ten -- the description they making them look horrible okay here's what it's all about.
There are two things going on one it was zero massive intelligence failure and not know that there is a security threat.
And if there was -- that intelligence failure that it was a massive security failure to the test but not protect them.
What's now happening is a cover.
The administration first blamed the movie right remembered the YouTube movie -- resolve this and then they said Ralph intelligence community -- they didn't tell us.
That was Director of National Intelligence clapper came out -- -- -- By the way as one of the weirdest things I've ever seen on a Friday night clapper who is by the way -- and art bullet -- and that follows clueless Scott absolutely.
It comes out where -- statement.
On a Friday.
He's not appeared in public to support the document.
I mean for crying out loud he could be on -- river bank somewhere fishing.
A while all of this is going on and we would know no better.
Now -- have a third person they're blaming is going to be the State Department and I think that's a certain thing next.
Why if if the intelligence was -- wide at the State Department not provide anything more than a couple of read accounts we want.
-- would have any war.
Irrespective of his or her level of -- it's declined security for the US -- bastard Libya.
Do any of these people remember that the United States has just launched hostilities against them what it.
Months ago down and you know about -- I think is the key if it is who knew what and where there's an out of whether -- in who decided what.
If the blame game starts and I think it already has on the part of the White House I was in the White House during Watergate and the Nixon administration.
I was and the panic and during Iran Contra what now starts happening.
Is the political people are blaming the intelligence community the diplomats -- -- colonel please.
And then you will see whistle blowers come out of the -- of the woodwork now they'll be off the record else talked quietly.
But they'll -- career diplomats career intelligence officers.
But connections to Capitol Hill who have connections to the media in your -- -- seeing a drip drip -- a little more information.
Every week ultimately I think they'll be hearings and you -- ever -- crisis are gonna -- political -- and.
We have just watched the spectacle of hearings are produced effectively nothing that is the -- -- yet.
We're we're we're going to have to rise beyond the level law.
And congressman sending letters and that being basically the action taken by our -- legislative branch there's got to be.
A higher level of energy and application.
By -- the United States congress and state senate if this if this country's going to be served at all.
Well I'm particularly in you know I think one of the things to -- what happens with Secretary Clinton.
She she should've been a one out there -- -- of the UN ambassador talking about if those were her issues three weeks ago.
Why didn't she do it I checked she was at her house in Washington should have gone on that's talk shows she didn't.
I think she knew there was a problem.
That's why it's what she does next it's going to be pretty important.
And it also raises the question why in the world -- cloth and Axelrod out talking about national security.
Do we have a national security director don't we have got to say marching band -- what the other -- -- with the World Bank is always good.
