How Democrats Have Politicized Benghazi
Liberals want to hide the truth.
Check it out:
In the past few days, as new evidence emerged that the White House was directly involved in misleading the public with the lie that the Benghazi terror attack of Sep. 11, 2012 was motivated by outrage at a YouTube video, and as Speaker of the House John Boehner has finally acceded to demands for a select committee to probe the attack and cover-up, Democrats have resorted to a common defense: Republicans are “politicizing” Benghazi.
Would that it had been so. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney famously declined to use Benghazi as a political weapon in the third presidential debate of 2012, which was focused on foreign policy. Much to the dismay of his supporters, Romney left Libya off the table–partly because his attempts to raise the issue in the second presidential debate were quashed by the interventions of the biased moderator, CNN’s Candy Crowley.
As for Boehner, he had long resisted a select committee, allowing the Benghazi investigations to languish in several separate House processes and, most ineffectually of all, in the Democrat-held Senate, where outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton uttered her infamous verdict: “What difference, at this point, does it make?” Her outburst was cheered by the media as a brilliant rejoinder to the Senate’s rather feeble interrogatories.
