Apparently, Jason Chaffetz would have you believe that Libya is so dangerous it requires we take a full-time military stance. But not so dangerous he can’t do a quick
political stunt “fact” “finding” trip to Libya with little warning. Predictably, Chaffetz’ extensive investigation onsite in Libya discovered that politics was dictating security.
“Rather than letting security dictate security, they let politics dictate security,” Chaffetz told Fox News.
Predictably, all this happened not just in time for Wednesday’s Chaffetz hearing on the attack, but more importantly in time for Mitt’s big foreign policy speech today, in which he will say,
The attack on our Consulate in Benghazi on September 11th, 2012 was likely the work of the same forces that attacked our homeland on September 11th, 2001.
Imagine what Commander in Chief Mitt Romney would do with the 2001 AUMF if all he needs to determine that the people who attacked the Consulate are “the same forces” that attacked the World Trade Center is to send a campaign surrogate to the Tripoli airport for a few hours.
Speaking of which. I look forward to all the journalists treating Chaffetz’ “fact” “finding” trip as a serious pursuit to ask whether tax payers will be paying for what was clearly designed to serve Mitt Romney’s campaign.
