Clash Between US Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) Challenging John Kerry With Benghazi Questions During Syria Hearing and the Obama Administrations Credibility
Representative Duncan shreds Secretary of State John Kerry and the Obama Administration on credibility.
Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) challenged Kerry and the Obama administration on military action in Syria when they have a lack of credibility doing anything with Benghazi, Fast & Furious and other White House scandals. Duncan said to Sec. Kerry, “America deserves answers before we send another man or woman the caliber of Ty Woods in harm’s way especially in another country’s civil war.” Obviously Duncan hit a nerve with Kerry as the Sec. of State became very defensive and thin skinned with his answers and response. Then Kerry said the unthinkable which made his predecessors, Hillary Clinton’s, comment, “What difference does it make” (VIDEO 5:14) pale in comparison … “We’re talking about people being killed by gas and you want to go talk about Benghazi and Fast and Furious!” Unbelievable. So are we to understand that the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Stevens, in Benghazi where no one has been brought to justice and US Border guard Brian Terry’s death are actually less important in the eyes of the Obama administration? We are still the United States of America, are we not?
“These issues call into question the accountability of this administration,” Duncan said. “Its commitment to the personnel on the ground, and the judgment that it uses when, making these determinations. The American people deserve answers before they move forward talking about military involvement in Syria.”
This is what happens when you have a president who cannot be trusted and who has scandals abound. There is no political capital to give him the benefit of the doubt. Obama has no credibility.
Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) during the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s hearing on Syria Wednesday got into a tense back and forth with Secretary of State John Kerry after the congressman brought up last year’s deadly Benghazi terror attack to question the White House’s credibility on foreign affairs.
The administration has a serious credibility issue with the American people,” Duncan said, “due to unanswered questions surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi almost a year ago.”
He went on to mention some of the other major scandals that have plagued the Obama administration, including the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups and the Department of Justice’s monitoring of the Associated Press.
“Bottom line is there’s a need for accountability and trust-building from the administration,” he said. “The administration has a credibility issue.”
Sorry, but the Obama administration has no credibility. Some how they cannot bring to justice those that killed four Americans in Benghazi and pretty much refuse to investigate and get answers, let alone try to lie and defraud the American people as to what happened there. They have no credibility with Fast & Furious, AP-gate, IRS-gate, FOX/Rosen-gate, NSA-gate and the list goes on and on. This administration has a record of being less than honest with the American people. Why should they be given the benefit of the doubt now? Obama tried to rush us into a military action and a Syrian civil war with no Congressional approval until the Brits said no to PM Cameron. JUST SAY NO!
