37. disconnect this....GOP Rep. Chaffetz admits voting against more security for Libyan consulate

Last edited Fri Nov 16, 2012, 03:31 PM - Edit history (1)

Hearings are currently underway by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), to investigate the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya last month. The attack killed four Americans; U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three security officers.

Republicans on the committee, which includes Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), want to know if politics were driving the decisions rather than security.

Congressman Chaffetz appeared on CNN this morning with Soledad O’Brien where she asked the Congressman about his vote in the U.S. House of Representatives when he voted against more security.

“So when there are complaints that, in fact, that there was not enough security, you’ve just said ‘absolutely’ that you cut that you were the one to vote against, to increase security for the State Department, which would lead directly to Benghazi,” O’Brien told Chaffetz. “It seems like you are saying you have a hand in the responsibility for this? Right? The funding of the security, you’re happy to cut it.”
