“John Kerry agrees to testify on Benghazi attack”
To avoid having to appear before the select committee. The coward.
Wonder if he’ll blame the US consulate staff and the two dead SEALs for instigating the attacks. After all, his career has gone pretty well for a guy whose claim to fame is marrying wealthy and lying about the behavior of his fellow service men, essentially aiding-and-abetting the North Vietnamese. Though in fairness, there’s a better-than-even chance that this time he simply blames the Zionists and the Christians. For their provocations. Which their continued existence carries with it. Washington Times:
Secretary of State John Kerry says he’s willing to testify before the House Oversight committee on the Benghazi attack.
The State Department sent a letter to Chairman Darrell Issa of California. The letter says diplomatic responsibilities will prevent Kerry from appearing on May 29. That’s the date of the committee subpoena.
But the department offers alternative dates of June 12 or June 20.
The department also says that if Kerry testifies before the House Oversight panel, then there is no need for him to appear before a newly-formed special select committee investigating the 2012 assault on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.
Issa should simply respond that his testimony before the House Oversight committee is no longer needed, as he’ll be called before the special select committee in due time. A failure to do so would suggest that ego has superseded the desire for justice. And while that would be a pity, it would also be completely within keeping of the DC culture of insularity and “collegiality,” the occasional grandstanding not withstanding.
