According to the Associated Press (AP) Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain are continuing to whine about wanting answers from the Obama administration over Benghazi and are threatening to oppose (yet again) the administration’s choice for another cabinet level appointment, this time it’s the new CIA director.
Graham mewed during CBS “Face the Nation”, he and his buddy, “are hell-bent on making sure the American people understand this debacle called Benghazi.” He also said wants to understand what happened in September at the U.S. consulate in Libya that left four Americans dead.
Perhaps the Senators should have been attending security briefings on Benghazi in November where everything was discussed instead of holding a press conference complaining about not receiving all the information on the attack? Just a thought.
McCain says he also wants answers about policies on torture and the Arizona senator says he deserves answers.Poor Senator McCain, perhaps in a more lucid moment he’ll remember President Bush is no longer in charge; but then again he was also heard saying, “I also want answers on who took the Strawberries, and, by-the-way, I like cheese.”
According to news reports, Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina’s claiming outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “got away with murder” in the Benghazi attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
“I haven’t forgotten about Benghazi. Hillary Clinton got away with murder, in my view,” Graham pontificated on Fox News Monday evening, speaking to Greta Van Susteren. “She said they had a clear-eyed view of the threats. How could you have a clear-eyed view of the threats in Benghazi when you didn’t know about the ambassador’s cable coming back from Libya?”
Well Senator, how about this? Perhaps if the uber-conservative GOTP members of the House hadn’t slashed funding for embassy defenses the four Americans would still be alive? The hypocrisy of the right knows no bounds, it’s amazing how this attack’s somehow criminally negligent but the death of more than 3,000 Americans on 9-11, and then sending more than 4,000 American soldiers to their deaths on faulty intelligence wasn’t? So, using Graham’s logic then, the Bush Administration got away not with murder, but with “mass murder”.
