Obama Doesn’t Have To Answer For Benghazi, Says Obama

Font Size:

Everything the Obama administration told us before, during, and after the September 11, 20012 Benghazi attack has been a brazen lie. They had an election to win, and they weren’t going to be held back by a few dead Americans on foreign soil. Of course, that doesn’t mean Obama should be held accountable to the common rabble.

Rachael Bade, Politico:

The White House and the House Select Committee on Benghazi are at a standoff over whether President Barack Obama should answer a series of questions about the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya that left four Americans dead.

Neil Eggleston, counsel to the president, blasted the committee for sending the president a list of questions about the attack — an inquiry the administration deemed inappropriate and a partisan attempt to frame the White House as uncooperative…

“If the president were to answer your questions, his response would suggest that Congress has the unilateral power to demand answers from the president about his official acts,” the letter reads.

Demanding answers from the king president? We wouldn’t want that.

Not that Obama is afraid of tough questions. He’ll sit down with pretty much anybody:

Meanwhile, the people who murdered Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, and Ambassador Christopher Stevens are walking around free. Take that, Republicans.

And whatever you do, America, don’t watch 13 Hours. Barry and Hillary would really rather you didn’t.
