Congresswoman Likens Benghazi Attack to Watergate Cover-Up

by Javier Manjarres

Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen made some noteworthy remarks in the post-debate “spin room” immediately following  the Republican presidential debate last night in Boca Raton. Ros-Lehtinen commented on what’s been going on behind the political scenes as the Administration continues its investigation of the Benghazi consulate attack that killed four Americans including the United States ambassador to Libya.

Ros-Lehtinen, who chairs the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, stated that it was she who authored the Iran sanctions bill and that President Obama had “little to no input in the Iran sanctions bill.”  She also said that the “administration has continued spinning this false tale” that the attack in Benghazi was precipitated by a YouTube video and has not been upfront with the members of Congress or the American people regarding the incident.

Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen also divulged the fact that Obama administration officials have recently cancelled a fact-finding meeting with members, and referred to the Benghazi attack cover up as another Watergate scandal, except that in Watergate nobody was killed.

Ros-Lehtinen echoed what Congressman Connie Mack said earlier in an interview with the Shark Tank-

They don’t want to give us the information, and even when they do, they always insist on having it be a classified briefing, they don’t want to come out and be open and answer these questions. They are hiding, its’ a real stonewall, you can say Watergate was a stonewall, but nobody died in Watergate. – Congresswoman Ileana Ros Lehtinen

    The is a murder, not a third rate break-in and they should all be impeachedd.

    At least Nixon had the good grace of quitting when he was caught knowingly lying to Congress. Obami thinks he god, and tat Americans are stupid,

    The Benghazi travesty was far more serious than Watergate. The Democrats would like to relate those murders to the Nixonian Watergate
    escapade, but the two events are not comparable in the least.

    WHERE IS THE RAGE? They had cameras in the compound, drones overhead, satellites all streaming LIVE LIVE LIVE to the WH, Pentagon, State Dept, CIA, FBI.

    Did Obama watch Ambassador Stevens and the three other get murdered in REAL TIME or wait until the next morning en route to more campaigning in Las Vegas???

    The attack lasted for 7+ hours… Did Obama tell the Quick Response Forces (commandos) in Sicily NOT to go save Ambassador Stevens??? Can you imagine being Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey who was forced by Panetta to give a press conference yesterday in which he confessed to leaving men behind to die?

    The American military, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER leaves men behind to die, at least not until Obama’s Presidency.

    The father of one of the murdered Navy Seals called Beck’s program yesterday to get the truth out.

    When his son’s body arrived at Andrews AFB, Hillary told the father: Don’t worry, we’ll get the guy who made this video.

    Why didn’t Obama, Hillary and Biden say: We’ll get the people who killed your son?

    The father just wants to know “Who gave the order not to save my son.”

    Where is the RAGE at EVERY campaign event Obama has? How about the media? Are they so far gone for Obama they have no morals, or sense of right and wrong, either?

    Where is the RAGE???????

    This is the most outrageous thing that I have ever heard of. to purposely leave your people to die for what cause, other than to keep the Muslims from being outraged. Personally due to the censorship that is applied to everything in the Muslim world, I don’t believe that anyone in that part of the world would be allowed to look at anything that mentions Mohammed in any bad light. Then to lie for weeks about what really happened. And place the blame on the producer of a second rate video and jail him for Probation violation. Please tell me, does exercise of your First Amendment rights to the Constitution get you tossed in jail? The cover up and lying to the nation and the United Nations, makes President Nixon look like a school boy. When does impeachment come into play for this Liar?

    Now, our Dear Leader is the most transparent leader we have ever had, and I am sure we will get to the bottom of this as soon as we can re elect him and find out that he personally went to Bengazi and caught the work place violet offenders himself. Give him time at least four more years.
