One might as well ask Barack Obama’s national security staff, “Dude, where was our embassy security?” Along with “Dude, where’s our foreign policy?”

This exchange happened on Fox last night. Bret Baier interviewed former Obama National Security Spokesman Tommy Vietor.

BRET BAIER: The 14th is the day you’re talking about. According to the e-mails and the time line, the CIA circulates new talking points after they’ve removed the mention of al Qaeda, and then at 6:21 the White House– you — add a line about the administration warning of September 10th of social media reports calling for demonstrations. True?

TOMMY VIETOR: I believe so.

BAIER: Did you also change “attacks” to “demonstrations” in the talking points?

VIETOR: Maybe. I don’t really remember.

BAIER: You don’t remember?

VIETOR: Dude, this was like two years ago. We’re still talking about the most mundane process.

BAIER: Dude, it is the thing that everybody is talking about.

VIETOR: We’re talking about the process of editing talking points. That’s what bureaucrats do all day long. Your producers edit scripts multiple times.

The mundane process of telling lies about the manner in which four Americans died. Editing those talking points in the days following those deaths was probably nothing like a producer editing a script. Unless Barack Obama has surrounded himself with cold-blooded vampires.

Vietor also dismissed the talking points that, dude, everybody’s talking about for some reason, in a tweet before he went on the air.

More: Vietor used a hashtag, #TBT, in that tweet. It stands for “Throwback Thursday.” Tweeters typically use that hashtag to post old, funny photos of themselves. Vietor used it to dismiss the deaths of four Americans.

I have new respect for Brett Baier considering the amount of restraint he showed.

Was the President amped, or would you describe it more as just very stoked?

The answer to this impious young fool is being shouted from the graves of four dead men: ”There is no statute of limitations on murder!”

The GOP should begin every news flash with "Dude"...and look for a new PR firm with that title.

Dude, it must be the statute of limitations for crimes against the country by presidents or something. Yeah that's it.

I'm not a 24/7 Fox News guy, but I do like Bret Baier in his current time slot. I still do but I lost an iota of respect because he (Bret) did not overturn the table on Tommy a.k.a "the dude" and proceed from there. Of course, Bret might have lost his job fro that, and that wouldn't be a good thing.

I think everyone should preface every remark with "Dude". The guy is an absolute jerk and seems representative of the quality of person Obama and Michelle hire. They live in the "dude" era and, long ago, adopted that mentality....a lot of emphasis on health, eating "right", and the superficial aspects of life. Being Around the quality of this individual would drive many of us up the wall. ....just what O is doing now.

"We’re still talking about the most mundane process."
Obama himself referred to the incidents in Egypt & Benghazi as 'bumps in the road'.
To this administration, saving American lives is the 'most mundane process'.

Folks, we have reached a milestone: Obama has less than 1000 days left in office. Now that's something to celebrate!

Vietor and FCMABBHO's former head of speechwriting, Jon Favreau, have formed a political communication firm, Fenway Strategies. I wonder if this interview will affect their bottom line.

Favreau and Vietor were the two staffers photographed in 2010 drinking beers without their shirts on in Georgetown.

What Brett Baier should have said about one minute into this farce:

"You are obviously unqualified to talk about this matter, so we're finished here. The exit is over there. When your bosses have someone who knows what he's talking about, they can call my office, and we'll arrange another meeting. Now get out of here before I call security."

I think Brett handled the conversation well. He was obviously stunned.
