Fox News host Geraldo Rivera on Friday urged his colleagues at the network's morning show to stop the "politicizing" and "preposterous allegations" about President Barack Obama's response to the Sept. 11 attacks in Libya.

Geraldo told the hosts of Fox & Friends that Rep. Mike Kelly's (R-PA) suggestion that the Obama administration was monitoring the attacks in Libya was in real time was "preposterous."

After host Steve Doocy defended the congressman's position, Geraldo shot back, "People, stop. Stop this right now. This whole notion of live TV and why didn't we respond is not what happened."

"I think we have to stop this politicizing," he added. "We're getting away from the real issues which was why wasn't there security before this happened. That's the issue. But these preposterous allegations –- reckless allegations that paint a picture of some fat bureaucrat watching TV –- I think that’s really beyond the pale."
