Skip to comments.Graham to Obama: I hold you responsible for Benghazi
Posted on 11/14/2012 12:37:46 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
The war of words over Benghazi escalated Wednesday when President Obama told his critics to "go after me" rather than Ambassador Susan Rice. Those critics then said they would do exactly that.
"Mr. President, don't think for one minute I don't hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi. I think you failed as Commander in Chief before, during, and after the attack," said Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican.
The exchange came after Mr. Graham and Sen. John McCain said they would try to block Ms. Rice if Mr. Obama tapped her to become secretary of state. They said she hasn't done an exemplary job in her current post as ambassador to the U.N., and also said she has damaged her credibility because she inaccurately blamed the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi on a mob protest.

Graham and McCain are digging their own graves with this tough talk. Obama will have his revenge. Time for the media to start investigating them.
Obamalini doesn’t give a damn Linseed!
I hold Graham responsible for encouraging illegal aliens and pushing amnesty. The blood is on his hands.
Who calls for a Special, Independent Prosecutor and where/why hasn't this happened??
not this time
GOPe version of “hold you responsible”=won’t do a damn thing.
Man, this is good news! Obama is arrogant about this. “Pride goeth before the fall.”
Yeah, get him Lindy! Hit him with your purse!
They need to call him down to testify, and if he won't testify, he should be subpoenaed. And if he doesn't appear, he should be held in contempt.
This guy is acting like a classic bully, it's time to confront him straight on.
1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.
Plus Fact Two:
2) No rescue mission was attempted.
Equals Fact Three:
3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
I'm lmao at this. Anybody ask how that worked out with Eric with-Holder?
There was no surprise about the attack. There was no 'failure of intel.' The attack was predicted in precise detail a month before it occurred. The draw down of security had to be intentional.
The failure to approve a rescue had to be intentional.
Keeping the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) in the dark about the attack had to be intentional.
Tweeting apologies for the 'anti-Muhammed video' beginning early that morning, repeatedly blaming all the violence at all of our embassies on the 'video' and making an apology video to air in Pakistan had to be intentional.
Stevens presence in Benghazi on 9-11 had to be intentional.
Why doesn’t Graham hit him with his purse. I’m done with Republicans and all their talk. Obama is calling them out and they react with “words”? Where’s the followup deeds?????
No, Graham, Rice did not “inaccurately” blame the attack on a video. It was not a mistake. It was a flat out lie.
This POS RINO is the reason why Obama and the Demokrats feel emboldened. Save you tough talk for your boyfriend!
Graham and McCain are themselves responsible. If they had done their jobs and actually demanded some answers from Obama instead of cheerleading, we might not have gotten involved in the Libyan mess to begin with.
