Sen. Graham slams Obama, media over Benghazi; ‘Can’t believe lack of inquiry over death trap’

Senator Graham (R-S.C.) took to Twitter to slam the Obama administration over Benghazi. He’s been trying to get answers, and is being ignored by the administration. But, hey, they are far too busy sending out photos of Obama in the Situation Room to actually answer any questions about the murder of four Americans.

Bingo. Answering questions doesn’t suit right now; Obama is concerned only with his own reelection.  Last night, Graham rightly slammed the lapdog media.

He went on Fox News to speak with Greta Van Susteren last night as well.

While many still take rightful issue with Graham over his Graham-nesty nonsense, in this instance he is right on point.

As for the media’s wilful incompetence? “Just bloggers” will take care of it.

    Make calls and send emails to the battleground states, help make the
    conservative enthusiasm turnout be 2-1 over the liberal Dems (who think they’ve
    already won). Take back your country!

  • LibertysSon

    Congress needs to expedite a formal hearing in to Benghazi and subpoena the Docs. If refused, then immediate charges of contempt should follow as well as a threat of Impeachment! The test came and Obama Failed!

      The liar will declare executive privilege like he did with Fast and Furious.

    I hope Newt is correct about the rumors that two media outlets have emails from the WH stating military to stand down. Release date TBD. Next couple days is what he says.

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    I still suspect this could all end up with a Berlin Bunker moment.

  • The Daffodil Times

    Meanwhile 39 Americans have died from Sandy and approx 8 million are without power

    • Jim Denney

      If we re-elect your favorite moron all Americans (except the Chicago cabal) will be without power.

      BTW, it’s 48 dead and still counting from the storm. Unlike like our four murdered countrymen in Libya however, their deaths were accidental.

    • Joshua Sumner

      it’s a trajedy when people die from a Natural Disaster that cannot be prevented… It’s a disgrace when people die because of a lack of response to something that could have been prevented

      • rbtpowell

        Nicely done………….

      • Lori Leal

        Excellent point well made Joshua!!

      • The Daffodil Times

        Stop touting Faux News talking points as truth

      • The Daffodil Times

        “lack of response?” riiiiiiiiiiight. You just keep touting those Faux News talking points Joshua and live the foreign policy to the experts. (HINT: not you!)

      • EEKman

        Today, the Benghazi truther movement starts.

    • EastValleyConservative

      This is definitely a concern for all of us. However Daffodil, our president watched 4 others (that he sent into harms way) die on a live feed and refused to help them. You may not think its important, but it’s extremely important. Sandy is being handled by all of the caring and responsible organizations and people in this nation. Libya is being ignored by those entrusted to protect this nation, including the media.

      • The Daffodil Times

        “On a live feed”. Where do you get this crap from?

    • gracepmc

      And Obama is on it! From the sit room.

      • lisaphil

        Actually, I don’t think he was in the sit room. i heard he went to bed. Explains why there are no photos.

    • rbtpowell

      You are so pathetically dense, comparing a tragedy from a natural disaster in contrast to a premeditated attack on American interests, the consequences of which could have been substantially mitigated by effective leadership. These events have two things in common, (a) Americans died, (b)the Vaudevillian in chief has addressed each from the perspective partisan political concerns, specifically hanging on to the plane and the house. This administration is nothing more than a figment of the chronically stupid, cattle like, segment of the US population.

    • Penmar

      Squirrel! Look Sandy says Daffy….sorry, won’t work. We had no control over Sandy, it was going to do whatever it was going to do. But we did have control over what happened in Libya, first and foremost our people should never have been left there in the first place after the previous attacks on the Consulate, the British Ambassador and the Red Cross, secondly, the security detail sent home a month prior asked to be allowed to stay, they were denied, Ambassador Stevens asked for more security, he was denied. Confirmed by Lamb in her testimony to our Congress. The brave men that died asked 3 times for help and to be allowed to help those at the Consulate, they were told to stand down. Now Obama claims he told his ‘people’ to make sure our people were being secured. While Leon Panetta says they didn’t send in help because he and the Joint Chiefs of Staff decided they didn’t have enough information, while Obama and Hillary and Rice and Carney shouted to the rooftops for weeks (Obama mentioned 6 times in his UN speech, weeks after the incident and after Carney had agreed it was a terrorist attack) that it wasn’t a terrorist attack but a spontaneous demonstration against some stupid video hardly anyone had heard of until 9/12/12. Now you can choose to ignore all these contradictions in what exactly happened, but because we value and honor the lives of those that gave them in defense of those left stranded in Benghazi, we will not. One more thing, being prior Military, I can tell you with 100 percent certainity, that for a 4 Star General and Special Forces/CIA to go against a superior’s orders is a BFD, to quote Joe Biden.

      really? Thanks for the update… Who knew?
      I bet your middle name is Einstein!

  • The Daffodil Times

    Republicans are so full of it over Benghazi. Eric Nordstrom’s request was to maintain the number of security officials at the consulate, not increase it. And that request was granted according to Charlene Lamb, the deputy secretary of state for diplomatic security. AND even if a Marine detachment could have been sent to Libya, it wouldn’t have mattered much. Libya has way to many militias operating in the country, and without full support from the host country, no embassy or consulate is truly safe.

    • Terry

      Obama could have ordered air support for our people being hit by mortars. He didn’t, he’s a weak excuse for a commander in chief. He sent the Ambassador and other US citizens to that God forsaken hell hole (which he helped to create) and then he left them stranded to die. Being attacked for 7 hours, they were begging for help, and all they got was crickets. And THEN he blamed a YouTube video and threw a US citizen in jail for making it! What flavor is your kool-aid?

      • The Daffodil Times

        You have no idea what went on so how about you just shut your trap

        • AgntOrngVctm

          Ever been in a war zone there Lady Daffodil? Do you think anybody ever has? Do you think everybody is as willfully ignorant as you? Half the country knows what went on and we are incensed. How can you justify and rationalize this act of treason by the so called Commander In Chief? How can you throw away the lives of those who volunteered to keep you safe from the evil that they endured? Bet you’re not a Christian. Think about it.

          • The Daffodil Times

            The country doesn’t know jack sh it. You conservatives are just making up crap as you go along

          • AgntOrngVctm

            So … no. You don’t think. You’re boring, go away.

        • Bill

          well well – aren’t you special? Just so you know (read the transcript of the Congressional Hearing) Nordstrom did request addl and requested to keep the military that had been deployed. He got neither. But here is the deal – the two former Navy Seals killed 60 by themselves so if a fast reaction special forces (Seals, Delta, Marine Recon, etc.) team had been airlifted to support a whole lot of bad guys would have met Allah and the reason is our guys know how to shoot with lethal accuracy. So – take you own advice!

          • The Daffodil Times

            Read the transcript? How about read the flip-flop

          • EastValleyConservative

            Just ignore this troll—their response to everything has been “what live feed?” “what cover up?”……if I didn’t know any better, I could swear it is Jehmu Greene with her fake smile and blinking her eyes constantly as she peddles another lie. The fact that they just snapped at you means they have lost it–completely lost it. I like it.

        • Lisa

          And you do?? LOL!

        • lainer51

          you mean the trap our troops fell into, thanks to this regime?

    • EastValleyConservative

      Really Daffodil? You can dance around the truth in a million ways if you wish, but the bottom line is no matter what happened—the president has been lying from day one to cover it up. Had there been nothing wrong here, and standard operating procedure as you insist, no cover up would have ensued. This is not a Republican issue, it’s an American one. Pathetic that you think only Republicans want to know what happened.

      • The Daffodil Times

        Cover-up of what?

        • EEKman

          Benghazi fell at freefall speed into its own footprint. Fact.

    • gracepmc

      Yeah, well when a friend of yours is dying over a seven hour period and the CIC is in the sit room watching it in real time perhaps you will reconsider.

      • The Daffodil Times

        You keep talking but all I hear is Faux News bullsh it.

        • Andy Hebert

          And you know what is being said on FOX how? All you seem to know is the misinformation and ignorance of CNN or MSNBC.

      • lainer51

        but our prez. still made it to Vegas on time that night – and that didn’t come from Fox News, but nice try … just keep repeating yourself until you believe your own propaganda, Daffy.

  • EastValleyConservative

    I can’t stand Graham on most issues, but even this raises the hackles on the some in the far left. The realization that if the military is politically expendable should give them chills, if not for common decency and human life, at least for themselves and family. If the military is worthless, a congress member is even less than worthless. Wake up Congress. All members need to speak up.

  • Lyle E Long

    Penatta said we did not enough info to send troops into harms way, so why is it that they sent people from Tripoli to help? Kinda doesn’t follow his statement does it?

  • jqc1970

    Is old RINO Graham coming up for reelection soon?

    • LibertysSon

      Not til 2016..Don’t be too hard on him…I think he is finding that young lion that used to reside in his heart!

  • Traci Fries

    Don’t give up Senator Graham, there are four dead Americans, that the White House watched it happen, gave stand down orders, and let them die is unacceptable! Senator Graham I ask for America, for Ambassador Stevens, his aide and yet two more Navy Seal Heroes, what would Ronald Reagan have done? Nothing less should have been our response, I and many, many Americans rally behind you. Yell, scream, be politically incorrect, do whatever it takes to hold Obama, and Hillary accountable for this tragedy!

  • Robert Hersh

    Maybe the people need to rise up and go to Washington. I am certain we could get the son of a bitch to answer!

    • EEKman

      Talk to the 9/11 truther folks. They could probably give you some tips.
