WASHINGTON — The House Intelligence Committee’s latest report on the terrorist attacks at a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was harshly criticized by South Carolina U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham. Graham called the report erroneous on several levels.
CNN reported Graham’s remarks on his appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Gloria Borger.
Graham said, “I think the report is full of crap.” He continued:
“I don’t believe that the report is accurate, given the role that Mike Morell (deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency at the time) played in misleading the Congress on two different occasions. Why didn’t the report say that?”
The report was released this past Friday by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Ranking Member Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD). The report said the CIA was not in error in the terrorist attacks and that there was no cover-up, when we at AIM have uncovered information strongly suggesting it was a cover-up.
Also, the report did not detail the inconsistency of the Obama administration, where then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the attacks were “spontaneous” and Susan Rice, another Obama administration official, said the same thing for months.
