‘Breathtaking’ lies and dishonesty by Obama and White House spark anger at Benghazi hearing

This is a rush transcript from “On the Record,” November 15, 2012. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Tempers boiling over on Capitol Hill, Republican lawmakers blasting the Obama administration overBENGHAZI,CONGRESSMAN DANA ROHRABACHER telling the House Foreign Affairs Committee, “This administration has lied to the American people about this tragedy. The arrogance and dishonesty in all of this is breathtaking.”

Congressman Rohrabacher joins us. Good evening, sir.View post

REP. DANA ROHRABACHER, R-CALIF.: Good evening.

VAN SUSTEREN: OK, you say they lied. So be specific. What do you think they lied about?

ROHRABACHER: Well, we know that for six days after the attack — and we just heard from a member of the Intelligence Committee who saw the film — they knew within a matter of hours, if not right away, that this was an organized, armed hit job by al Qaeda, probably, but an organized, commanded effort to murder our people.

Yet for six days after that, they were telling the American people that this was movie rage, this was a crowd getting out of control in order — and then they murdered our ambassador, rather than al Qaeda.

And what does that do? That means we are not worrying about radical Islamic terrorism. Instead we’re worried about a crowd getting out of control.

That was a lie! They knew it was a lie when they said it! When they sent out ambassador Rice to all the talk shows, they knew that was not the truth.
