Corker Questions Vice President On Terrorist Attacks In Benghazi

Friday, October 12, 2012

U.S. Senator Bob Corker, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, questioned Vice President Joe Biden’s comments during Thursday night’s vice presidential debate in which Mr. Biden blamed the intelligence community for the administration’s initial false assessment of what led to the deadly attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.  

“The vice president's comments last night about the situation in Benghazi, which claimed the lives of four Americans, absolutely do not square with facts on ground in Libya,” said Senator Corker. “Within 24 hours of the incident the administration knew that this was an orchestrated terrorist attack, and they clearly were aware of the specific details, including requests for additional security, that have finally been made public this week.  With the vice president continuing this ruse with his comments last night, all Americans should ask what the administration is trying to hide.” 

 Senator Corker returned to Tennessee late Tuesday from a fact-finding trip to Jordan, Libya, and the Syrian border. In Tripoli on Monday, Senator Corker participated in a briefing regarding the situation on the ground in Libya and the terrorist attack in Benghazi.  He has continued to note the heroism of the four Americans killed, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, and the security officials who responded to the attack that night.

Don't Squander The 2016 Election Opportunity

This is what I don't understand. Christians refusing to vote for anyone who is not squeaky clean and who doesn't live up to our standards. I'm not bashing Christians. I proudly proclaim Jesus as Lord and Savior.  But If we made our voice known more we could have a lot greater influence than we have. And I don't mean just boycotting. I specifically mean the last two ... (click for more)
