BRET BAIER (HOST): I said this morning, according to this report, Chuck, that there was all this talk about the fog of war in the first minutes. But this report suggests that the fog was really created in Washington. 

CHARLES LANE: Well, I guess what I take away from the report is how little confirmation it offers to the worst conspiracy theories related to Benghazi, things like people deliberately gave an order to stand down and abandon people. That's refuted in this report. Things like in real time the president sat and watched as the former Navy S.E.A.L.S were killed. That's not validated here. I think instead what you do get is confirmation of the fog of war. You get a situation where, with a lot of uncertainty about what's going on on the ground, people in the military and defense department struggled to carry out an order that the president had given to supply relief if necessary and by the time they had not even really gotten their act together, it was too late and the guys had evacuated.
