MA Dems Walk Out On Families Of Benghazi Victims

benghazi hearing no dems


Almost the entire Democrat section of panel is gone, while families testify

Stay Classy, Democrats!

At the House Oversight Committee today, the mother of dead former Navy Seal Sean Smith was there. So was the father of Tyrone Woods.

You know who wasn’t there? Democrat members of the committee, MA congressmen John Tierney and Stephen Lynch.

During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearingabout Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.

Tierney–best known for the millions of illegal dollars pouring through his wife’s bank account that he (ahem) knew nothing about–was one of the Democrats who walked out on the testimony of the families of the Benghazi victims. So was Rep.. Stephen Lynch.

As Steve Hayes of the Weekly Standard reports, the Obama administration’s “investigation” into themselves was a useless waste of time.¬†

You’d think that four dead Americans, a consulate over-run by terrorists, an administration that hasn’t brought anyone to justice and a president who hasn’t even answered the question “Where were you and what did you do?” would be enough to get a congressman’s attention.

But for Tierney and Lynch, partisanship comes ahead of everything–even dead Americans.

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
