Video highlights: Republican Senators
McCain, Graham and Ayotte Hold News
Conference on Benghazi Investigation

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/14/2012 1:08:41 PM

Republican senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte held a news conference on Capitol Hill today to discuss the status of the investigation into the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, and the upcoming hearings on the matter. The trio called for the creation of a joint committee to investigate the attack, similar to panels that investigated 9/11, Iran-Contra, and Watergate. Watch McCain’s opening remarks: Graham later responded to a question about speculation that President Obama will pick U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

Comments:
By the tone of their questioning it´s obvious the media will continue to and always protect 0bama. It´s terribly discouraging. The press conference coming up with 0bama will be even more of a joke.

Do the loved one of the four murdered Americans have the RIGHT to know the truth?
The media should be taken to the woodshed.
Disgusting and shameful.

We watched this presser. It was excellent. All three - McCain, Graham and Ayotte - were detailed, specific and forceful as to why they believed that a joint select committee was the only way to go.

They know - some of them from long experience - that when investigations are fragmented, spread out over hearings before various committees, they often fizzle out and nothing happens.

I know that we have sometimes been disappointed in McCain and Graham. There was no cause for this this morning.

They did not pull punches. Made it clear that this required one consolidated investigation, not multiple ones by various committees whose members might want to ask questions of witnesses called to the other committees´ hearings.

They made it clear that they believed some sort of coverup is going on. They also emphasized that "human failing" and indiscretion should not get in the way of an investigation as serious as Benghazi. A clear shot at any attempt by the White House or their lapdog media to destroy Petraeus´s credibility re Benghazi because of his extramarital affair.

Time to turn the tables on the cowardly, traitorous press and ask them the questions.
Do you care that 4 Americans were murdered in Beghanzi?
Does it not matter to you that someone in the top levels of our givernment is responsible for "leaving them behind"?
Are you willing to let the country fundamentally transform to communism?
Does freedom not matter to you at all?

Did they explain why they cancelled the original news conference that had been scheduled prior to the election? Faux indignation after the won is re-elected doesn´t quite pass muster as far as I´m concerned.

Have any of these Republican Senators asked any of the 30 people who survived the Benghazi attack to testify? Are these people sequestered somewhere to keep them silent? We never hear about them.

I think McCain and Graham are sweet on each other. They always seem to be holding hands.

Nice sentiment by the 3 senators but Obama will skate on this. He`s black and that`s all there is to it. Hold hearings if you want to but it won`t do any good. Hillary already showed Congress what she thinks of this incident....

I like Ayotte. I think she brings alot of spine to the table. I look forward to hearing from her in the future. Its time to start bringing forward the new strong Republicans. This press conference was a start. It sure beats playing to the left script. Make them take the defensive for awhile. If you don´t get your message out front and center then you are constantly letting the left define you. I say keep pounding them.

So, are the American people - that would be those who care about the truth - going to demand answers about Benghazi, as McCain said? Or, are they going to talk among themselves, and point fingers, rather than demand answers by supporting those who are searching and putting pressure on those who are not?

Thankfully, FOX is covering this story. We can´t depend on the rest of the MSM, of course. Even when they mention a nugget of truth they cover it with so much garbage that it is unrecognizable as truth by the time they´re finished.

McCain is right about this. The American people need to demand the truth.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
