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.
