Joining us now Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and Fox News contributor Judith Miller.
Bill -- he's the editor of -- long war journal senior fellow with the foundation for defense of democracies and it's good to have you with spell.
Judy let me begin -- -- this report is it in your judgment going to.
Allaying concerns answer the questions that are.
That have been posed about what happened and who's responsible.
For the events -- been -- I'm very optimistic -- that it's going to shed a lot of light on a lot of questions that you and other people at fox have been asking.
-- repeatedly about -- Ghazi because Pinkerton.
-- -- The man who's in charge of this is really experienced T seen all of the kind of excuses before.
And he knows how to assign blame.
-- the year ago.
I don't agree as much -- think Washington is it certainly has a culture of covering for each other and I I don't see that this report winning such stark figures I suspect -- lots of option upper east Asian.
On the point of who's actually responsible and we won't see anyone pay a price looking in the wake of 9/11 no one resigned and no one was fired and I don't expect any.
He to be held to the fire for much smaller incidents.
And -- the accountability I mean the fact is there's just one.
-- -- I guess we can call him.
Of a -- amateurish video.
That person is in jail there's been no other accountability.
Of the events that transpired and -- Gaza.
But I I -- just to support bill's point there.
But I -- to turn to if by made.
Secretary Clinton's absence from the congressional inquiry process she had said she did not want to testify.
The first time she was in Asia with the president.
The second time she.
And said she didn't want to test by then the third time she said.
She'd had a concussion.
And then everyone of course.
All of us would be concerned about her well being.
But the concussion came and the most fortuitous time are you all suspect.
Suspicious of back.
Well in Washington and even in New York -- must be suspicious of all claims in this kind however I do believe that if the doctor says she has compassion.
She has a concussion.
Whether or not it's the most politically.
A fortunate call the fall at this point I don't know but I I must say this slew I think that in a report like this.
Ambassador Pickering is gonna have to answer some of the questions that we've been raising and blame will have to be -- You know -- for dead Americans we can't just forget about them pretend it didn't happen.
We have to ask -- questions about security number pointer and Hillary Clinton.
Has been a master at -- I their appearing on the -- She put out Susan Rice instead to do that she has been a master so far dodging responsibility.
If I -- except she did claim she says she said I accept responsibility before the president did.
Well there was such a stampede to accept responsibility that -- gets lost in some of the numbers.
But I think we have to point out that.
The facts are that she says investor rice.
That she appeared on the spot stations not at the request of Secretary Clinton but rather the White House itself I don't know offensive a distinction without a difference.
You'd be -- -- Note your your final thoughts on big -- see what we can reasonably hope for.
Now back with hope for you think we can reasonably.
-- expect here.
What what I think we should hope for though is that we find okay all right more so.
The White House scrub the mention of al-Qaeda and al-Qaeda affiliated groups.
-- on the talking points.
-- in -- think all this talk about seasoned rice.
Is sort of a deflection from that real issue and the press really needs to answer ask these questions and I would like to think that this report would get to the bottom of it.
Our but it seems like everybody -- turning the other way of running.
And instead of taking responsibility.
For modifying talking points we knew within twelve hours of the attack that al-Qaeda was involved in this attack on -- -- And yet we were told that it that this was.
This attack was came out of some protests -- -- and that's not the case there was never protest of the -- or organized -- attack on the consulate.
And the American public should be made aware of that and fortunately they weren't given the truth prior to election.
Well they -- point of fact I'm proud to say.
To be associated with sparks a news.
Apprised of those facts in fact the fact that.
And posted on its website.
-- warning the attack before it occurred as well as claiming credit for it after it had.
The road show particular point and I thank you being here our hope you'll come back soon.
-- -- thank you so much thank you know coming up.
