U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said he has been in touch with survivors of the 9/11/12 attack on the American Special Mission Compound (SMC) and CIA Annex in Benghazi. His claim? Those survivors have been told by the Obama administration not to talk about their harrowing experience. If true, would that not qualify for obstruction of justice?
Graham is also calling on House leadership – to include Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Majority leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), and Party Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to start doing its job and get aggressive with investigating Benghazi. In short, Graham identifies Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) by name. Wolf has been calling for Boehner to form a House Select Committee.

Of course, this makes Hillary Clinton’s outburst at a Senate Committee hearing this past January a bit more relevant, does it not? It also makes more hypocritical, her statement immediately following that outburst.
Check out this transcript of Clinton’s words as she pounded her fist on the table:
“The fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was because guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans. What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.”
Did you catch the hypocrisy? How can you figure out what happened if you don’t care what happened? How did this go unnoticed? They were even two sentences back to back!
Doesn’t “do(ing) everything (they) can” involve determining motive? Isn’t that one of the first rules of investigating?
Of course, prohibiting the survivors from speaking to Congressional investigators only further underscores that hypocrisy, does it not?
