Former Chief of CIA's Bin Laden Unit Reacts to How the White House Handled Libya Attack: "The Democrats Are Very Good at Watching Americans Die"
The Senate Intelligence Committee is set to hold a closed-door hearing to investigate the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, but not until after the election on November 15th.
The former head of the CIA's bin Laden unit, Michael Scheuer, joined Your World this afternoon to react, saying, “The Democrats are very good at watching Americans die.”
To his understanding, the administration had live video for seven hours showing what was unfolding in Libya.
“It was like they were watching 9/11 happen and
just were holding back the police and the fire department and saying, ‘wait a minute, was it terrorism or was it a workplace event?’”
He went on to say, “They’re not adults. An adult would have done everything he could to try to get some help to those people, whether it was helicopters or aircraft or Marines or, for crying out loud, the Boy Scouts -- anyone.”
