10:00 pm
that is it for tonight's willis report, thank you for joining us, have a great night, we'll see you back here tomorrow. lou: good evening thank you for being with us, a day of disturbing revelation about the obama administration's abuse of power, contradictory statements by obama administration it may be on set of a constitutional crisis, a defensivend aggressive president today, wildly miscointreauing previous statements by him and his administration regarding the bengzi terror attacks while coming fors first time o a potential crisis involving internal revenue service practice of targeting conservative groups. and pretty much anyone who disagrees with the way that the federal government is being run by the administration.
10:01 pm
we begin with benghazi, president obama, presented a nixonion front during a press conference with british prime minister cameron, angry president obama laying blame for contininuing questions over terrorist attacks on his politica opponents, and severely minimizings importance ofhe false ambassador susan rice talking points that went on to blame the benghazi attack on an amateurish anti-islam youtube video. >> whole issue of this -- of talking points, frankly throughout this process h been a side show. we have been very clear about throughout, was that immediately after the ents happened, we were not clear who carried i out, how it -- it had occurred, what the motivations were. lou: well eyewitness testimony last week, prove that statement
10:02 pm
to be false. and shows that the white house either was not engaged on the issue or purposely trying to spin the truth and days leading up to election day, shades of president nixon famous, i am not a crook, declaration to nation regarding his role in watergate break in before resigning 10 months later, nixon's abuse of power included an enemy's list, tonight we know that the internal revenue service has been maintaining an enemy's list ofts own. the irs admitting that conservative nonprofit groups like the tea party, were targeted. but a leaked inspector general rert shows that list could be rger than first represented, includes groups ttat criticized how the government was being run, groups that sought to education americans on the couldt talk and the -- on the couldn't sawingconstitution andf
10:03 pm
right, president obama claimed he had no idea. >> i first learned about it from the same news reports that i think most people learned, i think friday. and this is pretty straightforward. if in fact, irs personnel engaged in thh kind of practices that have been reported on, and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that is orageous. lou: one of the targets individuals, jenny beth martin, cofounder of tea party patriots will be our guest here. associated press reporting that the obama justice deputy secretly obtained into months of phone records belonging to associated press reporters and editors, associated press ceo gary pruitt demands those
10:04 pm
records be returned and any copies destroyed. claim its goes far beyond anyyhing that can be justified. the government will not say why is sought tho record, associated press saying it is a infringe ainfringement on their constitutional rights. >> back to benghazi, president obama distorted his own wordsn record of his administration. while recounting the narrative coming out of the white house in days and weeks between the benghazi terrorist attack and the election day. fox news chief work work washington correspondent james rosen with our report. >> americans died in benghazi. we also know clearly ty were not in a position where they were adequately protected. and suddenly, 3 days ago, this ts spun up, as if there is something new to the story. >> reporter: president obama's retelling of the benghazi story,
10:05 pm
and how and why it resurfaced to consume pressure time with his news conference with prime minister was selective, president obama argued he has been characterizing benghazi correctly from the get go. >> the day after it happened i acknowledged that was an act of terrorism. >> repter: by president's words in rose garden on september were vague. >> no acts of terror will shake the resolve of this great nation. >> reporter: hours later president agreed he steared clear of word he now claims to have trumeled. >> this morning you went out of way to avoid word of terrorism in connection with libya attack, do you believe it was a terrorist attack. >> it is 5 52 52 too early to k. >> reporter: a week later, september 19, matt olsen testified before the sense sat that benghazi was not a protest gone awry. >> i would say yes, they were
10:06 pm
killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> reporter:etoday the president took credit. >> up to capitol hill and said, it was an acts of terrorism. >> he did not send him to the hill he was called to the hill, and he referred to it as an act of terrorism not in his prepared testimony but in response to a question. i remember quite well, it was a firestorm on capitol hill. because finally someone in the administtation had said, straight out, th was an act of terrorism. >> reporter: the president spend weeks after olson's testimony in campaign season steering clear. >> do you have an indications it was iran or al qaeda? >> well, we're sti doing an investigation. and i n't top speak to something in -- i don't want to speak to something until we have
10:07 pm
all of the information. >> we're still doing an investigation. >> we don't have all of the information yet. and so we're still gathering it. >> reporter: president asserted today confusion reined whether intelligence community completed its earl earliest assessment ofe benghazi attackses. >> nobody understood what was taking place during the course of first few days. >> reporter: cia station chief in libya cabled home that bengzi was a terrorist attack, and first version of cia talking points on benghazi drafted september 15 started we do know that islamicki extremists were tied. >> reporter: president obama did disclose today that lking points delivered by his u.n. ambassador, quote pretty much matched contents of the president's day brief, highly classified he received each morning "wl street journal"
10:08 pm
reported today of it not until september 22, that the pdb was updated to. if that it true, g.o.p. lawmaker will want to know why it was so different from cia's own draft talking points when aost identified al qaeda affiliates as purpose operators -- perpetrators, if you could indulge one personal note, i have spent 19 years working on book of watergate there are a lot of comparisons floating around right now. one point i want to make for historical accuracy, president nixon never ordered or saw or touched theresident's list. lou: that is why we took care to say they were among charges of impeachment not that he committed such acts. >> right, and my pleasure lou thank you. lou: you were going to saying in. >> also that president nixon you
10:09 pm
hear was impeached, he was the not, house judiciariy committ approved three of 5 articles but never voted on. lou: well done thank you. >> thank you, lou. lou: james rosen, outstanding reporting. meanwhile three days after his daily briefing eliminated all references to a protest sparked by an antiislam youtube video. president win the to united nations blaming murders of those 4 americans on that video. >> on this we must agree, there is no speech tha justifies mind less violence. there are no words, that excuses killing of innocence. there is no video to justifies an attack on an embassy. lou: president obama, used word
10:10 pm
terrorism only once during that 55 minute long speech. s president, used the terminal guida only once during that 55 minute speech, and near either in connection with the benghazi terrorist attacks, so why would the president do that if he knew it was terrorism from the get go? it was not until september 28, 3 days after the president's speech before the general assembly, that the office of director of intelligence released a statement saying that the attacks in benghazi were a deliberate and organized terrorist attack, a statement released by james spokesperson. not o clapper himself, joining s now, former pentagon official kt mcfarland, and dr. walid phares, i have to ask you, first. if i may, these -- this sequence
10:11 pm
of events that president used words terror, that president's daily briefing was not correcte3 until the 22 respecte 22nd thatd have been 3 days before president insinuated it of the video ratr than terrorism. in benghazi, the fact that dni did not correct itselff or the office of the dni, until, 3 days after the general assemy speech, and fully 6 days after they correed the president's daily briefing. what kind of monsterrous inconsistency is that? >> lou, there is a lot of math to figure out. if you make a comparison today, in press conference, the statements by the president, that and a quote, immedtely after the incident we didn't know who it was, what it was or the motivations were. that was t state of
10:12 pm
understanding the white house and obama administration after. but then there was a whole, campaign, u.n. ambassador, the president, other officials, stating that what prompted this of a video. at what point the decision of made. what is the assessment that tellings that you video prompted a violent attack again the cons ratconsulate and killed the ambassador there is no answer. lou: your thought >> there is an answer, that is politics, it is made up, it was a fairytale from the beginning, they were allergic to the word, al qaeda and terrorism because there are an election, they did not want to admit that americans died because they had a messed up middle east policy, they said they gotten rid offa al qaeda, they any got succeed, they knew it 4 americans died thattis w they had to cover it up, they didn't want to go into an elect
10:13 pm
saying ooh. lou: olson as he testified before congress, he responds it was a terrorism attack, i response to a question, but not in his prepared remarks. we're talking about 12th, president talked abo terror but that amounted to nothing in the rose garden. by the 15th we have talking points that david petraeus head of cia will not sign up on add inn advance of the ambassador rice's appearance on sunday talk show host. we have a update here this is one of the most confusing trails contradictory trails today the president, contradicted further. his own administration and its record. >> he lied, you are right,here so much fog, and smoke and mirrors no one can figure out the timeline, you did a good job at the beginning of the show, that is time f a house select
10:14 pm
committeeenghazi to get people, to subpoena them, find out what happened, because it is clear that american people were lied to, and the question is why. and what are the consequences. lou: do you, agree walid? >> absolutely, we may see this issue is bigger. not just about not being ready, not just about what we have done to counter, or that we have not responded so far, it our policy in libya, we have not identified this militia and 10 other militias as jihadists this is bigger it has to do with arab spring at a whole, i think it was blocked it is not open that would be a pandora box. lou: the box seems to be -- at this point, a little fuller than we expected. andt thank you so much, and -r. walid phares thank you. house aways and means comehe i
