Skip to comments.Udall: get over Benghazi, focus on Syria
Posted on 11/27/2012 6:46:40 AM PST by real saxophonist
DENVER Colorado Sen. Mark Udall, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told FOX31 Denver Tuesday that Americans should shift their focus from the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi that killed four Americans to the deadly civil war in Syria in which 37,000 people have been killed.
After congressional hearings on the Benghazi attack last week, nearly 100 House Republicans have pledged to oppose the nomination of United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice as Secretary of State because she followed incomplete talking points and wrongly attributed the attack to a spontaneous demonstration, not terrorism.
Udall says its time to turn the page.
Ambassador Rice has been scapegoated. This situations been politicized. This is a tragedy in search of a scandal, Udall told FOX31 Denver Tuesday. That being said, we ought to get to the bottom of it, and find out why embassy security wasnt as robust as it should have been.
But there are a lot of significant challenges in the Middle East that we ought to be focused on, instead of demanding that our intelligence community spend the bulk of its time on what happened in Benghazi. I want to turn our focus back to whats happening in Israel, whats happening in Syria, how we can work with Egypt.
To spend all this time on Benghazi, it doesnt serve our national security interests well.
After listening to former CIA Director David Petraeus testify last Friday about the administrations unsteady response to the Benghazi attacks, Udall flew to Canada for the Halifax International Security Forum, where he first called for the Obama Administration to consider a no-fly zone over Syria.

Time to write another letter to my Senator.
Colorado Sen. Mark Udall is a lib puppet.
Syria and all other nations that are critical to America’s national security are irrelevant if we have a “Commander in Chief” that is willing to be TREASONOUS in his decisions in order to protect himself politically.
Benghazi is the most important political news story of the 21st century to-date.
Ignore it at OUR peril, Senator.
He must be trying to garner points with Hussein 0bama, but he should learn that you can't make deals with the devil and come out ahead.
They’re all puppets. I can only think of two reasons why all of the democrats will do anything to protect their messiah. And that is many of them BELIEVE he IS THE messiah. The rest of them BELIEVE he is the opposite and choose to worship him.
We’ve seen the Udall handiwork before...
This is udall’s “put a littler ice on it” moment while America and Freedom are being raped by this administration. What a apologist putz.
Looks like Senator ‘Loyal to all traitors’ Udall is trying to keep Obama from being Impeached.
To date, the media havent asked President Obama and his top officials, why? Why the administration-wide cover-up? Why didnt military help get to Battleground Benghazi?
IMHO, Benghazi-Coward Obama chose Susan Rice to be the perfect deflecting smokescreen for his Impeachable blunders in the Benghazi Massacre.
Susan Rice is female, Black, and above all Had nothing to do with Benghazi.
Why not ignore Obamas throwing Rice at the gullible RINOs, and call Commie Obama to testify under oath to a Congressional Committee?
Here are my three questions for Benghazi-Coward Obama:
1.) Are you HIDING INFORMATION from the US Congress about the Benghazi Massacre?
2.) Have you been LYING to the US Congress, The Media, or the American Public about the Benghazi Massacre?
3.) Were you, as Commander in Chief, GROSSLY NEGLIGENT about your responsibilities to protect and assist those four Americans who subsequently were murdered in the Benghazi Massacre?
Impeach! IMPEACH! IMPEACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The foreign policy approach displayed in Benghazi will not work in Syria either. Get to the bottom of one, you have a better chance at the other.
“He must be trying to garner points with Hussein 0bama, but he should learn that you can’t make deals with the devil and come out ahead.”
If he follows FR, then he might have been positively reinforced by all the “Christie is great for hugging Hussein because he did what he needed to do to get help for Sandy victims” posts.
These groups are all enemies of our country.
Why would we want to stop this war??- Tom
Massive intel and security failures at an existing US facility in a country that just had an uprising to overthrow the a long term enemy of the USA, we bombed and supported the rebels, it exports oil, and we have 4 murdered citizens - 2 from the CIA - but there's no US interest.
On the other hand, in Syria - we have no US presence, they have no oil, and they are in the midst of a civil war with numerous factions - including committed enemies of the USA. This is where the US has vital interests according to this Rat.
Hey, Senator Moron Udall, no Americans were killed in Syria.
CO should change its named to “The Disappointment State”. Did anything good happen there in 2012?
And why were orders to a ready response team to help countermanded from higher authority; why was the general who gave the orders relieved of command?
Hmmmm ..?? A lib senator .. but no “D” appears after his name .. however, ALL REPUBLICANS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE AN “R” BEHIND THEIR NAME.
Time to stop this action. For those who watch this station or listen to other radio in the area .. time to rattle the cage a little and not allow them to get away with this any longer.
My Senator to, sorry to say. I’ve written to him many times and always get a reply...a standard form letter from a man with NO ORIGINAL THOUGHTS! “Puppet”, that and a “F”ing idiot.
And so Big Media’s (Yahoo’s) biggest story now is how great Christie is....
What a surprise.
Like, uh, Benghazi was just some sexy emails and some silly youtube something so why waste time on it, right?
Syria? They are doing just fine, leave them alone.
And some gaming...
Nothing to see in Benghazi because we have a Democrat administration.
What if Egypt is run by Muslim Terrorists ? Why would you actually want to attempt to work with terrorists ?
Okay, let’s focus on Syria...and the role played by Obama, Clinton and Chris Stephens in the Libyan gunrunning scheme to Syrian rebels.
