On a day, when John Kerry was on Capitol Hill to address the Syrian Crises, he spent much of his time stonewalling on Benghazi. Testifying to the House, Kerry was hit with questions on Benghazi and why the House should trust this administration on Syria, after having withheld vital information and outward lying on Benhazi. Kerry stonewalled, insisting that the US was threatened by Syria and it's chemical warfare.
South Carolina Rep Jeff Miller, R_FL, noted that we are threatened more by North Korea and asked Sec Kerry if we would be going after them next. Rep Jeff Duncan, R-SC suggested to Kerry, that after the Benghazi scandal, Fast and Furious and the IRS, this adminisrtration needed to build up some trust in congress. Both reps and John Kerry seemed to be getting pretty tense in their back and forth conversations.
In a matter unrelated to the hearing, Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight Comittee, sent Kerry a letter, demanding that either he allow the Benghazi witnesses testify before the committee by Sept 24th, or he would be forced to make that participation mandatory.
Issa noted tht the media was able to talk to the media, in what appeared to be perfectly staged testimony, but that the US congress was being brushed aside. Issa insisted that only these witnesses could testify on the run up to and the attack on the compound in Benghazi. Both Kerry and the Obama administration have failed in the past to honor or even acknowledge these requests.
