Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) appeared on Laura Ingraham’s radio show and discussed the testimony of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton relative to the Benghazi attacks on 9/11. At the end of this clip via the Daily Caller (h/t Diana West), Boehner addresses the question asked of Clinton by Rand Paul, which involved whether or not the CIA Annex was being used as a hub for gun trafficking.
Here is the relevant portion transcribed:
Ingraham: Mr. Speaker, Rand Paul asked a question about funneling perhaps arms from Turkey through that CIA Annex to be shipped ultimately to Syrian rebels. Hillary Clinton – there was about four or five beats before she answered the question. Do you know anything about this and have you been briefed on any possibilities…?
Boehner: I’m somewhat familiar with the chatter about this and the fact that these arms were moving toward Turkey but most of what I know about this came from a classified source and really can’t elaborate on it.
If Boehner knows, what are the odds Hillary doesn’t know four months after the attacks?
Also, if Boehner knows that Hillary either knows now or knew then, he knows that she lied in Congressional testimony.
Here is audio of the interview between Boehner and Ingraham. Pay attention beginning at the 3:33 mark:
Remember, if Hillary knows the truth about what was going on at the CIA Annex, she lied when she said she didn’t know.
Boehner has been bullied by the Obama administration for a long time. Perhaps it’s time for him to tap into his inner-Ralphie. The snowball in this movie metaphor should represent Hillary placing the blame for the lack of security in Libya, on Congress. And, of course, Scut Farkus represents Hillary herself.
Then again, Boehner knew he was talking to a conservative audience during his appearance on Ingraham’s show and has historically demonstrated extreme deference when confronting this administration.
One more question… If keeping classified information classified is actually a greater threat to national security than making it public, doesn’t Boehner have an obligation to spill the beans?
