Sen. Graham to block Hagel, Brennan nominations until more details on Benghazi are released

Sen. Lindsey Graham says he will block confirmation of the Obama administration’s nominees to fill two important cabinet positions until the White House releases more information on the attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans.

Here’s more from his interview today on “Face the Nation:”

Sen. John McCain tweeted his support of Graham’s position:

If the White House truly has nothing to hide, there should be no issue with releasing more documents.

    Graham is good on military issues, and all our people abroad need to know that at least people like Senator Graham are on their side.

    It’s become increasingly clear that Obama is more interested in the tender feelings of Muslims than protecting our people and our allies like Israel.

    We have a President we can’t trust.

      There are a lot of things we can’t trust Graham on too. Immigration, judges, and the budget process are the first three that come to mind. He changes his mind each time the wind blows, just like his father, er buddy, McCain.

      He’s getting in a lather about Benghazi because he is up for re-election in 2014. Compared to Tim Scott, he will be seen as (and effectively is) liberal. He’s worried that the Tea Party might field a candidate in the primary against him next year. I hope they do.

        You’re right about Sen. Graham, but we can, and will fight those battles as they arise. Glad that he is making so much noise about Benghazi now, when it counts!

    Time will tell.

    According to ‘ Benghazi: The Definitive Report’, Brennan should have a lot of information about what really happened in Benghazi.

    Graham knows something and he is going to slap it out of them.

    Good. If Susan Rice doesn’t get.a job promotion, neither should these people. Take the Lynch mob mentality to them. Since you didn’t have the Lynch mob for Panetta clapper Brennan and Hillary.

    I would be willing to accept the obowmao administration talking points:

    “Innocent civilians would have been killed if we called in an air strike.”
    “We couldn’t send in a rescue because we didn’t have complete information about what was happening.”
    “We decided not to risk more American lives.”
    “The U.S. military can’t be the global 911.”

    If they hadn’t come out so decisively with placing the blame on a youtube video. However, since the video was their first talking point, I don’t accept any of the others.

    This cannot be swept under the carpet and forgotten. obowmao needs to be questioned about this for the next 4 years.

    • Patrick Dennehy

      Absolutely! Why were they pushing the youtube narrative so hard? Especially since there were all these “mitigating circumstances” and “rational explanations”. The WH, time and time again, knowingly deceived the American people by pushing a false narrative. What else are they lying about? Everything.

    Think we’ll finally get some answers?

    cant help but realize that the Obama administration has played politics with the situation and now it looks like theyre coming out on top. i knew in the beginning that going after Susan Rice served as nothing more than a distraction from the main issue (just look at the interview where Kerry said he knew for sometime befrore hand). first we tried to attack the administration, then Susan Rice, then Clinton, and now we’re back to the administration again. from those who arent actively keeping up with this story (and lets admit most of the people in this country arent) it would appear that we’re making confrontation for the sake of confrontation, which is not the case !
