Kirsten Powers: Why Can't The Obama Administration "Just Tell The Truth" About Benghazi?


BRET BAIER: Kirsten, a lot of push back and say, to use a phrase, 'what difference does it make now?' What about that thinking and the reporting on this?

KIRSTEN POWERS: Well, I think the reporting is important. And I don't understand why the administration can't just tell the truth about this, and that keep saying things that, as George just pointed out, we know aren't true. And we know aren't true from sort of unbiased sources. The Senate Intelligence report is not Fox News. He wants to blame Fox News for everything; it's not Fox News. You have reasonable people thinking that this is not what happened.

I also thought it was interesting that he's talking about -- why couldn't he answer Bill's question? You know, Bill kept asking him, what were you told? And he never really would answer the question, and then he turns around and says, well, we were just focused on getting people safe. Well, of course you were. But weren't you also a little curious if it was a terrorist attack? And so none of this really adds up. And it's so frustrating every time we have to hear a rhetorical cotton candy, perfect way to describe it.
