Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) defended her committees oversight of the CIA on Sunday, but at the same time, she called the House select committee on Benghazi a lynch mob.
I think its ridiculous, Feinstein told CNNs State of the Union with Candy Crowley. I think its a hunting mission for a lynch mob, actually. I think that's what's going on.
Feinstein says she believes all questions about the Benghazi attack and its aftermath have been answered to the satisfaction of the Intelligence Committee, which she chairs.
She also compared the attack on Americans in Benghazi with the Reagan-era attack on the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut:
If you compare it to Ronald Reagan, who is the big Republican hero, and what happened in Beirut, with three attacks, with 240 servicemen, with seven CIA officers, with one chief of station being tortured to death, and Reagan admitted we weren't ready for it -- well, since then, a lot of things have been done. There were faults. The intelligence was there. Action should have been taken.
Later in the interview, Crowley asked Feinstein about her strained relationship with the CIA:
[W]hat I have to do is oversight, Feinstein said. I'm not there to be the most popular person in any building. It's to see that my committee is diligent, that we do the work of oversight, that when they're wrong, we do something about it. When there is something going on that shouldn't be, we do something about it.
Ah! well..... If only it was so....
What would she call the mob who attacked, tortured and killed our diplomats, whom these politicians enabled to do so?
must keep throwing until something sticks
OK...necktie party at DiFi’s house!
Shut up, chicken neck.
by her words she projected the fact that someone needs to be held accountable for Benghazi
FU bitch...I hope four people you love die with no investigation as to why and the coroner just says, “at this point what difference does it make”.
Wow, I actually agree with Feinstein.
"Lynch mob" is a pretty accurate description for the mob that killed Chris Stevens and defiled his corpse.
I f*in’ hope so!
This is the moral equivalent of yelling fire in a crowded theater.
She know the history of the phrase. She knows the President is black. She is lighting the match and she knows it.
four DEAD Americans is ridiculous too, right ?
Maybe she could tell us where the little islamist was and what he was doing while our people were being murdered over there.
He definitely appears to have been AWOL at the critical juncture.
If you have no facts to support your argument slander the opposition with incendiary frames in the attempt to convince the audience their opponent is not merely irrelevant but is the actual enemy being sought out to be exposed. Change the priority of the focus on to the opponent needing the immediate discipline not the initial suspect(s).
Yes Diane and I hope they Hang em all!
Somebody, well several somebodies, need to be lynched for it. I don’t see the problem.
Hmmmm, the words Feinstein and think kinda like oil and water. I always value the opinion of such an honest politician..................okay I’m laughing to hard to go on.
Libby was lynched during the Plame incident. A republican had to be scapegoated.
Why don’t you stop playing politics with the dead, Senator Frankenstien?
Are you hiding something? Is there some reason you don’t why to know why our president let those men die?
What are you hiding?
