Nevertheless, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said that he has personally urged House Speaker John Boehner to create a Very Special Benghazi Panel in light of “the building momentum in the House.”
Memo to Linds: The only “momentum in the House” has come from rabid Republicans falling all over themselves to destroy Hillary Clinton’s possible run for president and the current president’s legacy.
That’s kind of like Fox saying that momentum was building for the invasion of Iraq because Judith Miller planted a bunch of lies in the New York Times, and then quoting “a New York Times report” to make their case. Creating news and then reporting that creation as news will indeed build momentum… in some circles. And those circles find themselves going in circles to push any fantasy and propaganda that will benefit their side regardless of where real facts or credible witnesses who they refuse to call might lead them.
A day after three State Department whistle-blowers criticized the administration’s response to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) suggested the Speaker risked becoming “complicit” in a cover-up if he doesn’t create a special panel.
“The revelations at yesterday’s hearing have raised serious questions about the administration’s efforts to respond to the Americans under fire at the annex in Benghazi,” he said in a letter to Boehner. “What remains to be seen is whether the House will be complicit in that failure, or if we will pursue the truth — wherever it may take us — to ensure that we continue to deserve the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve our country.”
Wolf has 139 co-sponsors, which amounts to nearly 60 percent of the House Republican Conference.
Sorry, did I say co-sponsors? I meant co-clowns.
Little Lindsey Graham is in Rejection Mode again. He’s rejecting Susan Rice’s and the Obama administration’s intel-written explanations of the Benghazi attacks… again, although he did entertain the idea of Rice’s potential nomination as Secretary of State.
How big of Little.
But that didn’t stop him from tantruming and pointing fingers. Hell, he’s got bigger fish to fry! Back down now? Not when his BFF John McCain is out there on every talk show every Sunday sounding his familiar loony refrains, including his latest: John McCain: President Obama Is The Real Problem, Not Susan Rice,
Little Lindsey on This Week:
STEPHANOPOULOS: All the evidence is that Ambassador Rice was using the information given to her by the intelligence community.
“I don’t – I don’t believe that… We’ll get to the bottom of this.”
“I blame the president above all others.”
“When she [Rice] comes over, if she does, there will be a lot of questions asked of her about this event and others. But I do not believe the video is the cause …”
“I don’t believe the video is the reason for this. I don’t believe it was ever the reason for this. That was a political story, not an intel story, and we’re going to hold people accountable…”
So there! Even though the intelligence community didn’t release classified information and did release the Rice talking points, Lindsey is insisting it was all some kind of vast left wing conspiracy to get President Obama re-elected. Why, that’s … that’s… gotta be impeachable!
As you can see from the video, he went on and on, including his insistence on pushing for an investigation into Benghazi “like we got to the bottom of Iran-Contra. We’re not going to let up on this.”
No, weekly cranky white Republican Sunday spokesbabblers, President Obama isn’t the real problem. The anti-Obama, anti-Rice GOP conspiracy nutballs are.
It kills me to watch these ninnies blather on about “cover ups” when it’s absolutely apparent that this whole thing is based on just plain not jumping the gun. Idjits. Via Mediaite whose politics we don’t always agree with, blah blah, blah.
