Gone, Baby': Juan Williams Tells Fox Panel in Benghazi Shouting Match Scandal is 'In Your Head

News

Juan Williams engaged in a shouting match with Karl Rove over Benghazi on Sunday while participating on a Fox News panel.

Williams, a political analyst and Fox News contributor, opened up the segment alleging Republicans have been spreading misinformation about Benghazi, claiming their "is not one shred of evidence" that points to a cover up.

Rove, seated to Williams' right, firmly responded, often while pointing his finger at Williams.

"The American people have a legitimate question," Rove said. "Why were efforts not undertaken to save our people?”

Williams then tried to interject, but Rove continued.

“No assets were put in motion, and as you just admitted, U.S. military on the ground in Tripoli were told don’t go to Benghazi!" Rove loudly declared.

“There was no stand down order,” Williams countered. “What we have is, don’t go in after the fact, when we don’t know what you’re getting into, and it could result in more American deaths.”

“You’re all in the weeds here,” Williams continued, this time as Rove was trying to interject. “You continue to prosecute this like there’s some huge crime. Stop living in the past, and trying to get after Susan Rice or whoever. This has nothing to do with Ambassador Stevens.”

Rove finally responded, telling Williams he "may be comfortable with the American people being told a deliberate lie by the administration, but I’m not, and I think we need to get to the bottom of it,”

After senior political analyst Brit Hume shot off a few quick points, Williams ended the heated segment.

“It’s gone baby,” Williams said “It’s in your head. That’s about the only place.”
