From Australia on well we're taken advantage of revenue model -- element to our lanterns and announced an -- for appointments so.
Assaults over some stuff so the president and the administration.
Maintain -- almost eight days.
Refused to -- -- this act.
As a terrorist.
Act which -- -- And a CIA.
-- Blah blah blah evidence presented the -- morning.
Shortly thereafter new into one of -- -- and it was not but it was orchestrated.
Terrorist attack and not.
A -- response to some videos so.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yes I mean and I think that's that's is that an accurate.
You know representation of what they were aware of would be an -- I'm not.
You know you look at -- -- and then shortly after the -- the dust settled on the attack.
I think people that have been following Libya following chart there isn't -- this war on terror and al-Qaeda.
You know start talking out in public that it was nonsense to think that this thing -- was spurred by some obscure video.
Given the -- the problems that they had -- -- -- for months and months and months.
And given will be -- detective -- effect there was no protest at this time of the attack.
So united again I think that there was -- really flawed politically motivated narrative that immediately came out a White House.
And like you said last -- days and they've been trying to walk that back ever since and and part of that effort to figure out you know who they can throw under the -- whether it's.
State Department Weathers in community.
Any anti they're trying still find that that appropriate target anything they can get through to deflect blame from.
The person at the top.
So you haven't embassy.
Doesn't want an -- And have anniversary of 9/11 coming out and apparently they had asked.
The ambassador and others had asked for additional security and they.
Not only had apparently.
Additional security -- refused.
But some security had -- withdrawn from.
From that location.
And the secretary of state Hillary Clinton saying she is similar to our responsibility should take a responsible or not which one I was -- irreverent coast.
However deliver it might -- -- -- tried to present.
Some but my question arose when the CIA become solid.
In something like that what somebody it to.
Stated Barbara -- you -- this is a good idea or.
What do what do with the ambassador or other people make -- request for additional security.
What they also make not only -- the State Department but somehow him to listen you know higher -- our work.
Well it's edited and don't on the ground in on on the operational level before you start talking about you know people -- -- It is a collaborative effort that -- regional security officer Tripoli people -- State Department that are deployed out of bankruptcy.
-- -- security and a sort doing their job at a consulate.
The CIA personnel that are there aren't there.
It working whatever may be -- terrorism operations -- or training assistance to the Libyan.
They would all on the street level be working together and saying you know the saying is there's a bit of a go -- -- here we we need more security and they've been saying that her for a long time.
And -- you know essentially the problem has been ever since we put the they conflict and bring it did not do the proper assessment they did not provide a proper security at the outset that the state department's responsibility.
Once you start once the regional security officer or someone State Department starts kicking cable's start -- -- putting them into Washington.
That it's more unilateral operation because the State Department is responsible for this.
The CIA would -- intelligence into the general community.
About it beyond what's going on in the area but it was as plain as the nose on your face what was going on in the area since stable adding that consulate there.
Al-Qaeda elements operating area that concerning foreign fighters from eastern Libya into Iraq -- -- The vast amount of weapons.
A number of developed over several months leading up to the university final.
So that -- wasn't rocket science.
State Department I think -- a couple of reasons.
Want to increase resources there.
For security I think one was they -- looking take money and they days you know they were looking for -- a couple of sources and the other party was.
Improving security putting more insecurity -- You know increasing that that perimeter security on that facility.
It doesn't -- generic that the administration's been trying to put out.
About the Middle East and how successful -- Cardinal my competitors are -- -- as you grow our operations.
And CIA about a situation regarding security.
At an embassy in Gaza and -- But you don't.
-- -- makeup of the common sense to me.
On -- -- in -- knowing anything about anything.
That -- not and I can imaginative very is embassies.
And some of these troubled spots all over the all over the world are -- and -- State Department crazy all of them.
Requests are more security.
Many M suggestion that they don't have enough and probably all -- are right so like industry.
I can make -- case and Justice Department -- inundated with requests for additional security never comes -- Part where you don't have any additional security about anyway.
Back to -- -- re -- no that's -- hot spot Libya.
We know the generation on eleven it's -- and -- -- while you may not provide them with more security.
You certainly Gordon was draw pinning much of what they apparently gentlemen -- -- -- -- -- Well it is -- -- they they had a the -- sixteen and he deployed out there.
You know primarily.
Dad had been operating for I think since about February.
Of this year and they pulled them in August.
After about a six month deployment.
And yeah a trick again it goes back to that that those two points -- they did you know they were looking for ways to redeploy resources they wanted a narrative that -- You things are improving.
Our policies are working.
And it will look this it would just typical administrative cock up.
Not to understand how dangerous Dan and Bob -- and we have more we have -- security but that's -- in Paris and didn't spread around the world.
This was this was as simple matter of saying.
This desire -- clarity area months ago and redeploying assets from other areas what we didn't need them with a -- -- was not necessarily.
As need -- or -- So to me -- you're talking and by the way.
On note on your shoes under -- seven -- secret agent shares falling after Q1 of bio bio enough boxes.
-- certain connoisseur real well.
I I did you know I don't buy it by -- -- to -- all -- popular comic book and and that Soviet -- vote.
-- he's not I'm not a road again well.
There's another question by -- A lot of things that are.
Difficulty -- the world and people also employ the phrase it's not rocket science -- wonder.
Part of rocket science and Warner.
Is -- populist leaders -- -- you gotta be so that early suffered and been very quiet I am.
Event gets harder more difficult let's say bring -- -- Well the slipped as well I would want our rocket scientist reported brains -- -- me that -- that a former CIA guy.
