Democrats want to know why there’s a special committee on Benghazi? Hear’s why.
From a Fox News poll out last night:
Fifty-four percent of voters think the Obama administration has been deceitful about the events surrounding the Benghazi attacks. Half say the same about former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton (50 percent).
In addition, by a 51-39 percent margin, voters say the White House knowingly lied about the attacks to help President Obama’s re-election campaign.
Even some Democrats agree:
Among Democrats, 25 percent say Obama has tried to deceive on Benghazi and 23 percent think the White House lied to help the campaign.
What a sad state of affairs. While Democrats are trying to build the line that with the Benghazi committee, Republicans are politicizing the deaths of four Americans, the country believes that in fact this is exactly what President Obama and Hillary Clinton did.
The Ben Rhodes Benghazi email makes clear that the whole focus of the Obama PR team was to protect the president, not get accurate information out to the public about the tragedy.
The panel will ensure we get to the bottom of just how egregious the administration’s behavior was. And even more importantly than the videotape deception, it will hopefully find out whether those four Americans were needlessly left to die by a passive response or worse, a response that took politics into account.
