Today Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte met with United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice about her role in presenting false information about what took place in Benghazi to the people of America. While she had gone on several Sunday talk show to promote the lie that the attacks were not planned and were spontaneous protests that got out of hand because of a YouTube video, she declared that her statements were not true, which has led to an entire line of questioning as to why she had talking points that were known lies.
Each of the Senators had stunned responses:
“I’m more troubled today…because it is certainly clear from the beginning that we knew those with ties to al Qaeda were involved in the attack on the embassy.” -Senator Kelly Ayotte
“Bottom line is, I’m more disturbed now than I was before.” -Senator Lindsey Graham
Clearly there were issues and it seems that each of the Senators have not changed their opinions of Ms. Rice being nominated as Secretary of State. It seems Graham was also one that didn’t really give an answer for why he threw the intelligence agencies under the bus during the press conference after being “more disturbed than he was before.” Personally, I’m disturbed at Graham’s statements concerning the intelligence community. Why was Susan Rice even included in this scandal? Clearly the State Department was warned and they chose to ignore the threat. Republicans are going to have to get some spine and start pressing this matter more intensely or we will never get to the bottom of it.
