You have to admire his stubbornness, I suppose.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday defended his use of a “60 Minutes” report on the 2012 Benghazi, Libya attack that was retracted this week due to questions about the report’s truth.
Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he would not approach his investigation into Benghazi differently even though the British contractor cited in the report gave a different account of the night of the attack to FBI officials.
Graham said Sunday that he will continue to threaten a hold on Obama nominees in the Senate until he is able to interview State Department witnesses about the attack.
He’s holding up the nominations to fill the vacancy of the Secretary of Homeland Security, which has nothing whatsoever to do with Benghazi except that we could get hit by jihadists and the department that is charged with preventing it is running without someone in charge. Good plan.
Mr. Graham is sure that there’s some sort of coverup about the attack; so sure that even a totally discredited story that he was relying on to prove his case doesn’t sway him from his mission.
So, no, you don’t have to admire his stubbornness at all. Because it’s idiocy.
