Lindsey Graham targets Hillary Clinton on Benghazi

Source: Politico


Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday predicted that “the dam is about to break on Benghazi,” and said that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would shoulder some blame.

“I think the dam is about to break on Benghazi,” Graham (R-S.C.) wrote on his Facebook page. “We’re going to find a system failure before, during, and after the attacks. We’re going to find political manipulation seven weeks before an election. We’re going to find people asleep at the switch when it comes to the State Department, including Hillary Clinton.”

Graham has been a vocal critic of the Obama administration for its handling of the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Amb. Chris Stevens, among others.

3. Hillary has already taken the blame in her testimony. Which is far more noble of an act than

Republicans have ever done.

5. Yep, they are so afraid of Hillary running in 2016 that they are trying to destroy her reputation.

Lindsey should remember how well it went for his party the last time they tried to demonize the Clintons.

6. Had Bush been honest with America about certain threats from BinLaden the 2nd WTC tower

would have been evacuated immediately after the first tower was hit.

Bush refused to allow any investigation for over a year and the corpmedia was too scared of Bush to call him out. Lindsey Graham was in full support of Bush and cared nothing for the loss of lives due to Bush's stewardship of information important to this nation.

GO TO HELL, LINDSEY, you cowardly, lying sack of crap.

7. I think you are right, Senator. I think we WILL...

 

"...find a system failure before, during, and after the attacks..."

It's the same system failure that allows you to sit on the Armed Services, Homeland Security and Judiciary committees. And I think we will also find "political manipulation" and "people asleep at the switch." But I don't think it will be quite what you think it's going to be...

"Senator."

8. Of course, Lindsey wasn't too keen on stirring the pot when Bush was in office

I can't remember which MSNBC show it was on, but there was a segment about all the previous embassy tragedies during Dubya's term in office, and the Republicons sure didn't make a big stink about them.

The biggie for me was 9/11/2001--if you want to talk about a complete, utter failure to protect--that would be it. The GOP sure didn't demand to know why warnings weren't heeded by Bushco. I really don't think any of the Republicons care about who died, they're just using this as a political device.

10. Like Monica Lewinsky... the Republicans are a little *TOO* obsessed about one thing

 

that was 100% entirely the Republicans fault (cut on security on embassies)

And they are still *TRYING* to divert responsibility to Clinton.

11. Yes Lindsey!

and we're all still breathlessly awaiting the video of President Clinton burning the American Flag in Russia...ya' know, the video the right-wingers kept promising us...oh, and the Michelle Obama "Whitie" tape...and on and on "ad nauseum".

Fuck you...you fucking Paul Lynd voiced ass-pickle!

13. Lindsey, your expiration date is up. Quit with the showboating and get to

roping in the idiot Republicans in congress and get something done! You are a disgrace to your state and our country.

14. It's so obvious that this Benghazi thing is all about destroying Hllary ahead of 2016

While it is sad 4 Americans died why aren't they screaming about the 4000+ American who died in Iraq over bush's lies?

15. If anything, his language is far less inflammatory now than right after the attacks.

 

I think that maybe he's not so sure of himself anymore.

Besides, everyone knows the 'murkin public has the attention span of a gnat (or a Republican voter). By next fall, they will have forgotten this manufactured "scandal".

If there's anything at all to it, it's that Congress voted to cut funding for security at our embassies.

17. Front Door, Back Door

And reminiscent of the McCarthy era.

Yes, he is looking to knock Obama down a peg or two but more importantly he is looking ahead to 2016 and trying to dirty Hilary Clinton so she won't get in the race.

The problem with endlessly investigating the same thing and nothing new turns up is then backlash sets in because the purpose becomes clear that it is not about finding the facts but looking for political dirt. I think that we are probably already at this point. The other thing that is damning for Graham is that Secretary Clinton requested increased funding for embassy security but every single Republican voted "no". Since none of these hearing address perhaps the key issue (funding history) then they really serve no real purpose.
