Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy admitted that he is stumped by why the media has taken so long to start paying attention to the Benghazi terror attack.

“I can tell you this, in my district I’m asked about Benghazi much more than any other issue. I mean, from Costco to Wal-Mart to the church, Benghazi is the number one issue I’m asked about,” he said. “And I think I’m asked about it because it kind of involves what we believe about our republic, which is that we’re not gonna send anybody into harms way, under our flag without adequate protection, and if they get in trouble we are gonna go get ’em. We’re gonna save ’em. Or at least we’re gonna make a heck of an effort to do it.”

“So Benghazi kinda undercuts that,” Gowdy said, “And then you throw in the fact that your government, in an orchestrated fashion, is trying to keep you from finding out what happened, it makes for a great, you would think, media story. … I mean it’s been what over eight months, and finally you mentioned ABC, The New York Times figured out how to spell Benghazi. That’s great.”
