Speaking to Senator Lyndsey Graham, Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren expressed disbelief and outrage at the fact that it took two Senators, and not the president, to pressure the Tunisian government to grant FBI access to the Benghazi suspect in custody. The Tunisian man is under investigation for his possible involvement in the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11. The FBI has been denied permission to interrogate him until now.
“Well, my belief is that this administration is trying to run out the clock when it comes to Benghazi. This is a story that changes by the day. What do we know? We know that before the attack in April and June of this year, the consulate was attacked twice. We know that the British withdrew their — closed their consulate after the British ambassador was attacked in June. We know the Red Cross closed their office in Benghazi after the attack on the Red Cross office.”
We know that on August 15, Ambassador Stevens and his security team met and discussed the fact that 10 al Qaeda groups have been identified to be roaming around Benghazi and that they told the State Department, Secretary Clinton August the 16th if there’s a coordinated al Qaeda attack, the consulate will be overrun. So that’s what we know before the attack.
During the attack, we know that seven, eight hours goes by, and not one military person was able to help these poor people for over seven hours on September the 11th. And after the attack, the administration for almost two weeks blamed this on a video, a mob and a riot that never existed.
The president has been AWOL when it comes to Benghazi, Libya leadership. They’ve been denying and deceiving the public. And the fact that they haven’t pushed hard to get access to this witness is just part of the narrative of running out the clock.
Van Susteren noted the lack of urgency on President Obama’s part and followed up with the following statement,
“And it’s not only that no one bothered to try to see this Tunisian guy. I mean, if two U.S. senators can make a phone call and send a letter and get us contact, but the president of the United States can’t, that’s stunning.”
“But there’s even more than that, is that the FBI did visit Benghazi after the attack sometime and left. But then fast forward to last week, October 26th, Foreign Policy journalists go in there, after the place has – – people have been walking all over the place and looking at it, and they he recover documents that are critical to this investigation. Like — like, the FBI didn’t even bother! Like, nobody even cared! Nobody even cared that four Americans are dead! It’s a shabby investigation! We’re not talking to people! Four people died! And I — I mean, you wouldn’t even see that kind of investigation in a local homicide case!”
