Congressman Trey Gowdy Excoriates The Media - did not do their jobs on Benghazi.


Congressman Trey Gowdy Excoriates The Media - did not do their jobs on Benghazi.

 

The Media is supposed to provide oversight, that is why the media has special privileges. 

Congressman Trey Gowdy - South Carolina

0-04

terrible act in Benghazi and make no

0-08

mistake justice will be done

0-10

that was the president of the united

0-12

states over a year ago

0-16

we're investigating exactly what

0-18

happened but my biggest priority now is

0-22

bringing those folks to justice

0-24

that was the president of the united

0-27

states over a year ago no one has been

0-31

arrested no one has been prosecuted

0-36

no one has been brought to justice we

0-38

don't even have access to the witnesses

0-41

you and the media were good enough for

0-45

my 16 years as a prosecutor not to tell

0-47

me how to do my job and so far in

0-49

Congress shall have been good enough not

0-50

to tell me how to do my job

0-52

I'm not telling you how to do your job

0-53

but I'm going to ask you some questions

0-55

and if you can't answer these questions

0-57

then I'll leave you to draw whatever

0-59

conclusions you want to draw about

1-01

whether or not the media has provided

1-03

sufficient oversight can you tell me why

1-05

chris stevens was in Benghazi the night

1-08

that he was killed

1-09

do you know does it bother you whether

1-14

or not you know why chris stevens was in

1-16

Benghazi do you know why we were the

1-19

last flag flying in Benghazi after the

1-21

British had left and the Red Cross had

1-23

been bombed

1-25

do you know why request for additional

1-28

security were denied

1-30

do you know why an ambassador asking for

1-34

more security days and weeks before he

1-38

was murdered and those requests went

1-41

unheeded do you know the answer to why

1-43

those requests went unheeded do you know

1-48

why no assets were deployed during the

1-50

siege and I've heard the explanation

1-52

which defies logic frankly that we

1-54

couldn't have gotten there in time but

1-56

but you know they didn't know when it

1-58

was going in

1-59

so how can you possibly site as an

2-01

excuse

2-02

do you know whether the president called

2-05

any of our allies and said can you help

2-08

we have men under attack can you answer

2-12

that

2-12

do any of you know why Susan Rice was

2-15

picked the secretary state did not go

2-18

she says she doesn't like sunday talk

2-20

shows that's the only media venue she

2-22

does not like if that's true why would

2-26

Susan Rice on the five sunday talk shows

2-29

do you know the origin of this mythology

2-33

that it was spawned as a spontaneous

2-36

reaction to a video

2-38

do you know where that started you know

2-41

how we got from no evidence of that to

2-44

that being the official position of the

2-46

administration in conclusion Congress is

2-50

supposed to provide oversight the voters

2-53

are supposed to provide oversight and

2-55

you were supposed to provide oversight

2-58

that's why you have special liberties

2-59

and that's why you have special

3-01

protections I am NOT surprised that the

3-04

president united states call this a

3-06

phony scandal

3-07

I'm not surprised as Secretary Clinton

3-10

asked what difference does it make

3-12

I'm not even surprised that Jay Carney

3-14

said Benghazi happened a long time ago

3-17

I'm just surprised at how many people

3-19

bought it
