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

Last night on Special Report, Democrat and Fox News Political Analyst Kirsten Powers blasted the Obama administration over the ongoing cover-up of the 2012 9/11 Benghazi terror attack.

BAIER: Kirsten, a lot of people 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 they keep saying things, as George just pointed out, we know aren't true. And we know aren't true from sort of unbiased sources. I mean the Senate intelligence report is not Fox News. He wants to blame Fox News for everything. It's not Fox News.

The clip above gets cut off, but Powers went on to mention Bill O'Reilly's interview with the President when he asked Obama about the attack. In the interview Obama implied the only reason why he's still being hammered about what happened in Benghazi is because of Fox News when in reality, it's because he's refused to answer questions about what happened.

"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 just 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," Powers continued. "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. It's so frustrating every time we have to hear a rhetorical cotton candy, perfect way to describe it."


Last month the Senate Intelligence Committee released a bipartisan report showing Benghazi could have been prevented. The report also destroyed the administration's narrative that a YouTube video was the reason for the attack.

The report concluded that under former Secretary of State Clinton’s watch, the department failed to increase security in Benghazi despite intelligence reports that the situation there was deteriorating and warnings ahead of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack that U.S. facilities were at risk.

It also faulted the Obama administration and the intelligence community for being slow to dispel false reports that the attack that killed Stevens and three other Americans stemmed from a peaceful protest gone awry.
