There are legitimate arguments being made against confirming John Brennan as the director of the CIA, but this isn’t one of them.
A statement from Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
“I have not forgotten about the Benghazi debacle and still have many questions about what transpired before, during and after the attack on our consulate.
“In that regard, I do not believe we should confirm anyone as Director of the CIA until our questions are answered – like who changed Ambassador Susan Rice’s talking points and deleted the references to Al-Qaeda? My support for a delay in confirmation is not directed at Mr. Brennan, but is an unfortunate, yet necessary action to get information from this Administration.
“I have tried – repeatedly – to get information on Benghazi but my requests have been repeatedly ignored.
As a sitting senator Lindsey Graham should be aware that the Senate Homeland Security Committee has already issued it’s official report on Benghazi and that the report concluded that each of the various intelligence agencies had a hand in the confusion that immediately followed the attack on the American embassy. And the Obama Administration has been entirely cooperative.
Case closed, right?
Not for Lindsey Graham who seems to be using last year’s fake controversy to ward off primary challengers.
An unfortunate casualty of Graham’s faux crusade and re-election fears is greater cooperation over immigration reform.
