Joining us now to a well to analyze all of this Fox's national security -- thinking -- She's held national security posts and -- presidents Nixon Ford Reagan.
Also joining us Fox News Middle East expert chair of governor -- Middle East advisor group.
-- -- Let me start with the your reaction to this is the second portion of this interview.
That has been released by sixty minutes.
The first coming in mid mid October I believe the nineteenth of October.
And now this one.
We've only hours remaining before the election.
But what does this once say what this one Shalit says that the president did not talk about it is terrorism from the beginning -- sort of what's the so why everything has been said so far you know we now have the majority of American staffing if there's a cover up.
It could have should be able offices is the mainstream media is.
Our I want to accept -- primary -- a couple of just.
Particularly -- conservative CBS.
Doing an outstanding job Foreign Policy Magazine during an.
-- on Bret Baier Catherine Herridge.
Our Jennifer Griffin -- -- not -- a super Jumbo leave your reaction.
To this stature and staggered staged release.
If you will with the most peculiar time.
Peculiar times by sixty minutes.
Look first default you just mentioned it the fact that this has been east few hours gulf war.
We start voting Americans are not paying attention to -- -- at the same time for history data that would sell what is it before.
This segment itself is so clear the question to the president was since you have not said.
The west terrorism can you confirm now that stairs and to present absurd without investigating.
Meaning that despite all the information that came to the executive branch.
Overnight and that morning still the president said.
We are investigating this is an attack against America's because you don't -- could be affecting Americans that's different from terrorism.
I think that segment is very very clear.
And and what are we to make of the fact that the CIA releases -- time.
After almost eight weeks finally decides to respond.
After before that a few days earlier David Petraeus the head of the CIA makes role as a statement released saying no one -- the CIA.
In any way injured or refused.
Help for those four Americans who were killed.
And then comes a time -- and -- we see a number of news outlets report that timeline by the CIA as if it were gospel.
For example David Ignatius at the at the Washington Post.
A veteran foreign policy correspondent suddenly embracing the CIA.
I have never seen the likes of this I of their version.
But without even qualification.
And you know the tragedy I kept thinking.
She -- -- 1972.
During the Watergate break and that was the time and that movie is seen by every cover corridor as the sort of cult classic how reporters investigate the truth.
-- up against.
You know the establishment and they're -- fight for the truthful what's happened now it's just the opposite we now -- -- mainstream media.
It doesn't want to fight for the truth at all is really the press office of an Obama campaign and I think that's.
When you look back twenty years from now and people look back at -- -- they're not going to talk about.
All the things that you and I are talking about now they're gonna look back -- it was the media.
Why did the media not exercise his first amendment rights why did they not speak truth to power.
Why did they just take what they were -- And go with it because they had political leanings that agreed with the press.
-- I'm gonna ask you if I made -- go beyond.
The Middle Eastern geopolitics.
Is that your assessment the American people.
Are sufficiently blind and deaf.
To the political reality in Washington DC that they would.
-- come to just simply.
A complete unaware.
To buy into the eight but there's been an eight week long Stonewall by this administration.
And the American public is submitted to a blackout.
God and a box 85%.
Of that mainstream box that -- information -- the public.
Is part of the mechanism.
You know they don't want to share information I don't wanna share.
Analysis it is very ironic little.
That the Blogosphere the bloggers FaceBook YouTube.
Shed more information with the public than the mainstream media.
And that's the scandal is not a Watergate this is an all too gates that those who need to inform us and educate us did not.
-- were report.
Maturing Americans want the truth and it's still I think coming and the majority of Americans think that there's been a cover up and I want to know why.
For Americans were killed and why no assistance is given before during or after.
And I and I want to qualify if -- -- Rather.
