Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Sunday on FOX NEWS, host Chris Wallace had White House Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough, on his program.
Wallace asked the same question I have been wondering for months.
After the 9/11 attacks in Benghazi, the President and Hillary Clinton went on and on how this would not stand and they would bring those responsible to justice.
So, the interview went something like this:
Wallace: "Finally, Wednesday marks one year since the terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. The day after in the Rose Garden, the President promised to bring the killers to justice. But, while our government has charged Abd Ahmed Abu Khattala as one of the people involved in this, there's been no arrest, while at the same time Khattala has given interviews to CNN, to the AP, and to The New York Times. Why is it that reporters seem to be able to find this guy, who the government is charging for involvement in Benghazi, but our law enforcement can't find him?"
McDonough: "Look, we've been very clear that we will hold those people who carried out this dastardly, heinous attack against our people to account."
Wallace: "It's been a year, sir."
McDonough: "It has been a year. And you know what the United States does, Chris? Is we track every lead until we find and can accomplish what we say we will do? This president..."
Wallace: "Why can't we find Khattala when the AP can?"
McDonough: "This President has demonstrated that. And we will do that."
Wallace: "Again, finally, not to belabor it, but why can the AP find him? Why can the New York Times find him, and not our government?"
McDonough: "The United States government does what it says. And we will do what we say in this instance. As we do in every other instance, Chris. I have no doubt about that."
Well, I do.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
