But I was also not -- former four star generals because they didn't do anything.
The marine's marine force reconnaissance.
Where is close to -- -- -- as our embassy laws the CIA god bless them.
In our embassy rushed all the way over there former -- waiting charter plane and they got into the fight.
Our Marines and our F eighteens never -- into the fight.

-- all of -- thinks that us.
In terms of -- administration's conduct.
In his whole term.
All -- It was reminiscent of all of what happened in Watergate in my -- -- as a criminal over -- -- I don't think -- a criminal cover up but there's obviously -- And now general to -- -- line.
Well because I think they got stuck they they wanted this narrative before the -- the election to say that you don't worry about terrorism anymore.

That's a lot of nonsense for people leaking to him of the National Security Council advisor and when he wrote his book -- gate.

Guys in the middle scared to death of the polygraph guys have to talk can avoid the polygraph.
