Senator Lindsey Graham went 'On the Record' with Greta van Susteren where he discussed the importance of creating a joint-select committee to investigate the Benghazi, Libya attack.....

GOP Senators: Susan Rice Meeting Left Us 'More Disturbed' Than Before [UPDATE]
McCain, of course, is "softening his opposition" to Rice, so you know she must be unfit.
The fact that Americans re-elected Obama shows there is no will to find the truth or hold anyone accountable for the death of the Americans there.
What does he mean...”bottom”?
Zombo-Americans rose from their graves to reelect Obama. Even if the vote was materially honest, so was Richard Nixon’s reelection vote, and everyone knew about the Watergate break-in prior to election day. There is a will to find the truth in this case. Lindsey Graham is living proof of that. Carney pathetically trying to spin The Wun out of this by calling Graham and his colleagues ‘obsessive’ is still more proof.
“McCain, of course, is “softening his opposition” to Rice, so you know she must be unfit. “
He looked pretty fired up this afternoon. Haven’t seen THAT Mccain for a long time. Maybe he’s getting back in touch with his old inner combative self. Must have been one there once before, doncha think?
Either Barney Frank's or some so-inclined staffer or random attraction.
Let me guess.The GOP will get to the bottom of Bengazi about
4 months from the 2014 Mid-Term election, so they can use it
as a campaign tool, nevermind actually making people pay a price
Saw the clip of McCain’s alleged softening, as linked by HuffPost, and it looks like wishful thinking on their part. I hereby apologize to Sen. McCain, provided he does not soften. That b@#$ should “retire to spend more time with her family,” as they say.
Yep, just a bunch of empty bluster from Graham and McLame. Nothing is going to come of this tragic incident. Republicans will cave as usual and it will all be swept under the rug by the Obama regime and its corrupt allies in the media.
Perhaps the TEA Party can light a fire under the GOP. Perhaps plain-clothes goons will start busting up TEA parties after 20/1/13, though.

Now, if he challenges her, the press can tag team him and write a story that goes “McCain, whose position was softening towards Rice, according to news accounts after their meeting, has now flip flopped on the Rice nomination...”
That should be a question and not a statement. Would love to be wrong but this is entering into the political theatre phase of the DC political game.
Rice will become the Sos, Kerry the SecDef and not a damn thing will be done by the Republicans in regard to Obamacare.
I reference as Exhibit A all the outrage and threats of investigation when Obama's National Security cred was leaked to the NY Slimes earlier in the year - what happened and where did that go?
The very least Congress should do at this point is push the Pentagon to retroactively bring Navy SEALs Woods and Doherty back to active duty status and award them the Navy Cross. These two selfless Americans have been completely lost in the sea of lies spewing forth from State, the White House, the CIA and the media. The military will do this in a heartbeat to prosecute someone; what’s the harm in doing the same thing to honor two heroes?
How will they get to the bottom of it? They have little power and even less will to wield what they do have. They will do as they’re told.
Interesting facts I’ve learned today:
1. Elvis is alive living on Mars.
2. We (the GOP)Will Get To The Bottom Of What Happened In Benghazi.
3. Santa Clause is real.
4. Anderson Cooper is heterosexual.
we'll never have answers..
I'm willing to give them kudos for that. I wouldn't want the job. I pray they can keep it up.
Graham and McCain are the ‘fixers’ for the Washington elites - no matter what party.
They will pack this problem in the back of a white utility van (with no seats) and drive it out of town to never be heard of again.
Graham has said he wants to turn this into another “Iran-Contra” investigation.
Eventually that led Reagan to admit on national tv that the US was giving Iran weapons in return for hostages, but that he never knew anything about it. So while members of his cabinet were indicted, Reagan came away unscathed.
The same could happen for Obama.
And just like President Bush the 1st who pardoned all of Reagan’s cabinet memebrs, President Hillary could pardon all of Obama’s!
McCain Ayotte and Linsey would be wanting to hang on to this story for dear life now that they’ve bit into it.
If they let go (or get flung off), they’ll never live it down with anyone remotely conservative.
If they never give up on it, could it be be a tiny feather in their cap with which to stand for re-election ? Well, maybe for less-informed supporters.
I’m basing this on the next few years producing sever pain for U.S. citizens, which, even more than now, will result in everyone politically center to right becoming very, very, very not happy (to put it politely) with the left. In that case, oldtime hucksters will be faced with a huge uphill battle in getting reelected.
IIRC, McCain was going to retire ? If so, he’d still want to do so with some shred of respect left for the history books, perhaps a tepid positive to top off a career that took a huge nosedive at the end.
Greta is a democrat what else does she dont know?....
Agreed they will fold. Dims gonna blackmail them with the threat of no invitation to their New Year’s Eve Party.
Benghazi is just “Fast and Furious”, part #2.
Expect the same amount of cooperation from the White Hut as what you saw at the Mexican border.
In both instances you saw the administration arming our foes , except that the media had photos and film of the ambassador being dragged through the streets , so they couldn’t ignore it altogether.
The fact that the investigators arrived 27 days after the incident says a lot about how the adminsitration wanted the matter handled .
At least in regard to Benghazi , there hasn’t been an issuance of “Executive Priviledge” .......... yet !!
There are just volumes of questions that cannot be explained.
Something is hidden, and sooner or later, it will come out. Not even the main stream media can stop this coming train wreck. The other train wreck is the economy.
I wish I could share your enthusiasm. However, even the Tea Party
Congresscritters we sent to DC, most have already been turned by
Bonehead and the DC crowd.
...when will the statute of limitations run out????
The bottom of what happened at Bemghazi starts at the top. Unless they are willing to put the POS on the hot seat, he won’t be getting to the bottom of anything. Congress is powerless against Obama because they are afraid of him
Screw Congress. TEA parties on the street are our last hope. If the thugs show up as I expect, there’s nothing else left except CW2.
Do not say P@#$#t H@#$#y. Cussin’s not allowed on Freep.
Lilly Grahamnasty speaks with such conviction.
That’s a darn good idea. McCain & friends could jump right on it.
Diana West finished off on of her latest with this:
“An unidentified reporter asked: “Was he involved in the actual decision-making the night of the attack?”
King: “I don’t want to get into that, but he was — he was definitely fully aware of what was going on, yes.”
Unidentified reporter: “Did he ask for military backup?”
King: “I am never going to get into that. I can’t get into any of that.”
Getting into every aspect of Benghazi-gate is the responsibility of Congress. The American people are owed the truth.”
~~ What they “owe” us is a “debt” that they have no intention of paying.
Graham is really getting pissed on around here when he’s been a pit bull regarding Bengazi. Go to any left wing thread and they hate his guts for what he’s doing. Not sure why so many Freepers knickers are in a twist over this. It’s like the want Obama to get off Scott free.
There’s absolutely nothing to “get to the bottom” of; in fact, even saying “we’ll get to the bottom of it” is to live in a world of make-believe in which what obviously happened somehow didn’t happen.
Our embassy was attacked by Moslem thugs, which is what Moslem thugs do; the ambassador called for help, and Obama turned him down, p*ssed in his face, and threw him and his courageous guard under the bus.
All part of Obama’s delusional Arab Spring fantasy, coupled with his utterly imbecile notion that if we’re “nice” to the moslems, they’ll somehow turn friendly.
They won’t, and Hussein’s gormlessness is the stuff of Alice in Wonderland, which is where the White House seems to be located these days.
Graham has a history of putting himself in the flash bulbs of a serious issue, only to tuck and run when push comes to shove.
if you get to the bottom of it, the question is “then what?” Do you honestly think the Senate or House will do a blasted thing about it? This is the party of Stupid we’re talking about. If they didn’t have the guts to out the issue during the campaign when it meant something, I have very little hope they’ll do anything with it except pen a strongly worded letter that will just go to File 13.
Someone very, very high in the administration WANTED that ambassador dead. The guards were probably irrelevant in those calculations.
We will probably never know WHY the decision was made to isolate this ambassador and watch him die, but it was a decision by someone.
I agree. Why are so many in a twist over this?
Is this a wise thing to do - mad at them when they don’t do a thing, even madder at them when they speak up about the Benghazi scandal?
Why not seize every opportunity we have to keep Benghazi front and center?
Encourage and cheer them on for their good behavior! Speaking up, keeping Benghazi alive and well is good.
If we constantly blame them no matter what they do, can we blame them for not doing the right thing?
Sure we don’t dare to raise our hopes for fear of disappointment, but
isn’t there a better chance to get to the bottom of Benghazi if they keep speaking up and we keep encouraging them, than beating them up because of our own skepticism?
Benghazi might just be the force that will crack the dam. We must not do anything to impede the force.
TREASON. Questions NOT asked. Answers NOT forthcoming. The players...
R.I.P. Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, Chris Stevens, Ty Woods. Condolences to their families. Condolences to their friends.
You make a good point about not wanting the job. It’s tough being a Republican with the Dems lying about everything and the media jackals nipping at your heels. Not many decent people are willing to endure working in a snake pit like Washington DC so you’re right — they do deserve a certain amount of gratitude for making the effort to keep this story alive.
But I do think it would be an easier road for Repbulicans if they were unapologetically aggressive and stuck together more often. They just seem to have a knack for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Lindsey’s the go-to guy when Democrats need a Republican to show outrage and accomplish nothing.
None of us live that kind of life.
Personally, I see a fair amount of sticking together in the GOP caucus. Now, the relationship between "Tea Party Grassroots" and "RINO Politician"...that's another story...and that's one that the MSM exploits constantly.
Nothing will happen to barry no matter how tightly wound these senatorial freaks get.
It is too bad the Repbulicans can’t be as upstet about “crap” spending programs and waste in government as they are about Bengazi. If we took 100 billion of waste from the various departments and cleaned out a little of the waste in the DOD, maybe folks would have some FOCUS on real issues and we would not have radicals killing at FT Hood or Bengazi!! /rant will never stop over waste in government
What’s needed is TEA parties all over Texas focusing on Benghazi. He might be content to be their go-to guy, but not when his own seat might be in jeopardy. Then he’ll have to be the guy to do something, and make it stick.
Actually, the nicer you re to Muslims, the more they demand, the easier they flare up, and the harder it is to appease them. What they need is frequent doses of whoop-ass.
