Kerry Calls Out GOP Senator Out For Missing Benghazi Briefing

Johnson pressed Kerry to commit to finding out what, exactly, happened on Sept. 11, 2012 at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

"Well, there was a briefing with tapes, which we all saw, those of us who went to it, which made it crystal clear," Kerry said. "We sat for several hours with our intel folks, who described to us precisely what we were seeing. We saw the events unfold. We had a very complete and detailed description."


Relying exclusively on argument by assertion is already pathetically lame, Ned. You might at least assert things that aren't easily proven to be total bullshit.

I would very much like to know what Ron Johnson was doing during that briefing. I'm sure it was important state or federal business, but still I would like to know.

Maybe someone will ask him.

Of course you leftists had to go and disrupt this nice thread with such an unfortunate revelation.

Thankfully, Merde has created an unnecessary new thread so we conservatives can pretend the above never happened.

Try not to ruin that one too, OK?

Unfortunate revelation? Don't you mean "inconvenient truth?"

Good on Ron Johnson for doing his job and getting to the bottom of this monstrosity.


Ya, good 'ol honest Ron Johnson:

But the 2010 Johnson disapproved of criticizing foreign policy publicly when there are troops in the field. "There's an appropriate way of opposing a policy and an inappropriate way," he told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "The appropriate way if I'm a U.S. senator is going to be not public. If I'm opposed to something, I'll make those views known very, very well, but privately with the administration." Johnson was running against then-Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), a vocal critic of the ongoing war in Afghanistan, and the quote was a shot at him for speaking out.

I guess that means privately with the administration in front a bunch of cameras... and people... and shit, you know, privately. Blerf, what a joke.

[*]ps, if you're gonna post about Benghazi, lets keep it here and not in someone's shitpool of a thread.

Oh, please. What is the deal with leftists like you and Douthat trying to compare Obama to our sainted Reagan?

For Obama to begin to merit such comparison, he'd have to let something of this magnitude happen on his watch:

Is it my imagination or is the GOP much harder on Obama than the Dems were on Bush?

Probably more of a mater of perspective than imagination.

Unless you are talking elected officials. Democrats in congress definitely went easier on Bush. Then again Bush was able to frame a lot of the major decisions of his presidency around 9/11. Obama hasn't had that kind of defining moment in his presidency to rally the country around.

Obama calls it a day in the "search" to find the "real killers" in Benghazi:

Team involved in tracking Benghazi suspects pulling out, sources say

Two weeks after the Obama administration announced charges against suspects in the Benghazi attack, a large portion of the U.S. team that hunted the suspects and trained Libyans to help capture or kill them is leaving Libya permanently.

Special operators in the region tell Fox News that while Benghazi targets have been identified for months, officials in Washington could "never pull the trigger." In fact, one source insists that much of the information on Benghazi suspects had been passed along to the White House after being vetted by the Department of Defense and the State Department -- and at least one recommendation for direct action on a Benghazi suspect was given to President Obama as recently as Aug. 7.

Ned, during Reagan's presidency a Marine bunker in Beirut was blow up, killing over 200 of our military personnel. Reagan vowed that he would bring the killers to justice. That never happened. Are you pissed about that too, or was that so long ago and a Democratic president wasn't in office?

I think that calls for another vote to defund Obamacare.
