‘Do these look like protesters?’: Sen. Lindsey Graham tweets photos from Benghazi

The FBI late yesterday released surveillance photos of three men it says were on the grounds of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, when it was attacked on Sept. 11, 2012. In its bulletin, the FBI was careful to note that the men pictured are not suspects in the attack which killed four Americans, but they are wanted for questioning:

The FBI is now asking Libyans and people around the world for additional information related to the attacks, which resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

We are seeking information about three individuals who were on the grounds of the U.S. Special Mission when it was attacked. These individuals may be able to provide information to help in the investigation.

Graham’s tweet obviously is a reference to the Obama administration’s story that the fatal attacks were the result of a spontaneous protest against a YouTube video, but those certainly don’t look like protest signs in the men’s hands. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton isn’t the only one wonder what difference, at this point, it makes.

Not everyone’s quite ready to “let it go, bro.”

    Never, Never let this go. Not until we get the truth.

    When someone in power does not do his job and hides the truth from the people who put them in “power” it is time to think of new leadership, I for one amy tired of the lies and deceit.

    • Jeremy

      Obama is a power hungry arrogant jerk and only cares about himself.

    These morons who are responding are disgraceful. To compare wanting to find out the answers to why Americans died to beating a dead horse shows what scumbags these people are.

    • trixiewoobeans

      If this were a sitting Republican President, there would be student demonstrations, the media would be on it like rabid dogs, the Hollywood Herd would be tweeting and talk-showing, Congress would be DEMANDING answers yesterday! But then again, this wouldn’t have happened under a sitting Republican President.

  • catb55

    Wow .. those replies are disturbing . are the 4 American’s still dead you morons? .. who gave the order to STAND DOWN? Where are the witnesses??? Are they safe??? Let it go .. H NO!

    btw .. not only did I retweet .. I shared Twitchy’s Facebook post.

    • BigTBoom

      The people making the replies probably don’t know there were survivors, it’s a fact which has been seriously suppressed by the media. I had to search foreign media articles in September before I found reports of survivors being evacuated from the area. And now 8 months later, the survivors are still mute and absent while rumors circulate that they’ve been threatened if they do speak out. It smells of deceit and cover up.

        There were at least 30 others, by some accounts. 30!

    My favorites the Racist one typical Liberal BS when they know they lied they call you racist

    • grais

      I liked little Antony, who considers himself a “philosopher,”(lol), & wants someone ELSE to pie Graham, so his little heart can smile (?) and be proud. What a cowardly, little clown he is. His kid(s) is doomed.

      I love when I hear liberals complain about that “n#####” Ben Carson whenever he appears on tv, and then turn around talking about how racist Republicans are. I’ve never personally met a racist Republican. But I’ve sure as hell met a lot of racist Democrats in my town.

      • NY Republican

        Considering I’ve seen more racists here than all the times I’ve went to Texas that seems valid

    • Drive2Slow

      The most overused word in the Liberal’s lexicon! Calling a conservative a racist is the equivalent of grade school kids saying “You have cooties” on the playground.

      • waterytart

        They’d soon soil their knickers if we just started smiling and saying “Thank You!!” as if they’ve just given us a wonderful compliment.

    • Jason Call

      @SenorHamlin I like this. Please continue to end-tag your tweets with #idiot -Sacrifice 6 chr per tweet for a true public service! #benghazi

  • CatHerder

    No statute of limitations on murder. This case will remain open however long it takes.

    • Karl Winrich

      Kind of ironic that the man who spoke the words “The only people who are afraid of the truth are those who have something to hide”, Obama himself, is the one who is working the hardest to try to hide the truth of Benghazi.

      • Jason Call

        My peeve: “…the most transparent administration in history” campaign promise–Ridiculous, insulting use of superlatives. That kind of thing just grates on my ears. Get real. Grownups such as Bush and Cheney never claim the mostest or the bestest in such matters. They just show up and do the damn job and expect to be held accountable. And “irony” does not describe it. “Horsesh*t” comes a lot closer.

        • robcrawford2

          I dunno. I’d say they’re transparent. I can see right through them.

  • moddly

    I can’t believe I live in a country with the likes of those trashing Graham

  • MisterIncredible

    Too bad this is the only thing Graham is good for.

    And it’s also too bad that he isn’t even any good at getting any answers.

    So I guess he really isn’t good for anything.

    It makes you scared to think what obama is really scared of. Hillary says “what difference does it make?” And the filmaker is still in jail. Everyone remembers Nixon because the left kept his name alive in shame. All he did was cover up a crime and no one died.

  • http://www.theretiredbabyboomer.net/ Dave

    People comparing Benghazi to Watergate forget one thing. There were no dead bodies in Watergate.

  • Denise Sanchez

    I feel, our gov. shows, they can’t help or protect our guys & gals far away. Katrina showed me, gov. can’t help or protect citizens here at home.

  • sodakhic

    8 months later and the FBI finally releases some pictures. This reeks to high heaven.

    • ClinkinKY

      6 months after the election seemed like enough time per the “as yet unreleased memo”:)

  • cscape

    Gee…. it only took the FBI 8 months to lower the NET…. well done guys!

  • Dutra

    We owe the truth to the families left behind and the silenced survivors.

  • http://twitter.com/HotRodFan899 Gary Freeman

    And again, liberals try to paint tea-partiers as violent monsters. The liberals don’t want the truth coming out because they know it will be the end of Obama. Seriously, the Dems get pissy when people bring this up, but they still bring up Bush having terrorists waterboarded. So if they can bring up something that happened half a decade ago, we can bring up something that happened 8 months ago and demand answers.

  • Paul

    those sniveling little proggie punks need a beat down. if you know one smash it’s face into mush

  • Jenn

    I cannot believe liberals are so insistent on ignoring a terrorist attack, the attackers, the living witnesses, and the lies of the administration. It’s unreal.

  • ClinkinKY

    This must be Lindsey’s week to be the faux conservative. Monday, it’s McCain’s turn.
    Thanks again, South Carolina and Arizona.

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      Politicians need to be rewarded with praise when they get things right and punished with scorn when they get things left, oops when they get things wrong. This is how we can train them.

  • anywoman

    Obama vowed to “find those responsible and bring them to justice”. Now you liberal bleeding heart types want Graham to let it go? Did I miss the arrest and trial of the perpetrators or don’t the families of the dead heroes have a right to expect Obama to live up to those words? Watergate dragged on for more than two years. Eight months into this debacle – letting it go is NOT an option.

  • Herman LaClair

    i think it’s precious that Jay Carney says “Benghazi was a long time ago”, yet the FBI only yesterday releases these pics of individuals wanted for questioning.

  • Tony Sanchez

    It’s a travesty that so many citizens want to hide the truth to protect their messiah, obama. If I could vomit on every one of them, I would.

  • dralfredbellows

    Why is it that everyone with a tweet that is “pro-let it go” looks like a total Delta Bravo?
