John Kerry: “We have a lot more important things to move on to” than Benghazi

posted at 3:21 pm on April 18, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

By all means, tell us how you really feel.

REP. DANA ROHRABACHER (R-CA): …We need to talk to the people who are on the scene. Can you give us a commitment now that for this administration you will be coming up with the request, the honest request of this investigative committee as to who was evacuated and how to talk to them so we can get a straight answer and an understanding of what happened in Benghazi?

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY: Well, before I became Secretary, Congressman, I believe I got the answers to who was evacuated and had a pretty good sense of what happened there. But now that I am the Secretary and I am responsible to you and the Congress, I can promise you that if you’re not getting something that you have evidence of or you think you ought to be getting, we’ll work with you. And I will appoint somebody to work directly with you starting tomorrow, with you, Mr. Chairman, to have a review of anything you don’t think you’ve gotten that you’re supposed to get. Let’s get this done with, folks.

ROHRABACHER: Thanks.

KERRY: Let’s figure out what it is that’s missing, if it’s legitimate or if it isn’t. I don’t think anybody lied to anybody. And let’s find out exactly, together, what happened, because we need — we got a lot more important things to move on to and get done.

That was at Kerry’s first official Congressional appearance as Secretary of State, with the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday — and while I’m sure he and the rest of the Obama administration are all too eager to close this highly inconvenient little chapter in their recent history, there have still been zero arrests and pretty much zero accountability on the matter, as Guy reminded us yesterday.

Let’s put this behind us,” Kerry chided the assembled lawmakers, but unfortunately for him, whistleblowers are starting to come forward and the House Oversight Committee isn’t prepared to let it go, seeing as how some real answers on exactly what happened in Benghazi are most definitely relevant to the “serious, important, big current developments” on which Kerry would really prefer that everybody start focusing all of their attention. As Oversight Chairman Issa cautioned them yesterday, the Obama admin should probably get their lawyers ready.

“We have a lot more important things to move on to”

Yeah … attacks on our consulates … killing our ambassadors … nothing to see, here. It’s not unusual for the Precedent and SecState to dance on the coffins of dead diplomats and Americans who tried to save them (against orders from the traitor-in-chief in Washington). The movie-maker is still sitting in jail, so all’s good. No sense worrying about the White House having taken to the airwaves to repeatedly lie like banshees about the whole terror attack. No need to delve into the possible Fast & Furious, Libyan-style arming of Al Quaeda scum in Syria.

This is all small potatoes compared to truly important things … all those other things that Washington is either ignoring or actively working against.

Anyone who would even dare question the retarded, Dog-Eating Sukarno copy on Pennsylvania Avenue just doesn’t understand how important it is to act as if the affirI think what he meant to say was what difference at this point does it make?

APACHEWHOKNOWS on April 18, 2013 at 3:51 PM

So let me get this straight.

Getting to the truth about four Americans murdered by Muslims in Libya, including our Ambassador, and to the truth about a possible cover-up of the terrorist nature of the attack and the involvement of al Qaeda, and to the truth about the possible bumbling incompetence of the administration in protecting our diplomatic personnel in an Arab country only two months before a Presidential election on the anniversary of 9/11, is not a very high priority for our new Secretary of State. Do I have that right, John? The American people don’t really need to know about any of this. It’s not very important. What does it matter now? And who cares? Does that about sum it up, John?

BTW, do we have any clues yet about who is responsible and why they did it? We already know it wasn’t because of a video. If there has not been any progress, why not?

That is solely by design of your political Party, in order to further distract Low-IQ Democrat Voters like yourself from the Democrat-created horrible economy, and the Democrat-created horrible national debt. According to the latest C-BS “Poll” (done last month), gun legislation is only cited by 3% of Americans as important, while 49% say the economy, jobs and the national debt are far more important. And gay rights and immigration were not even cited as priorities by the 1,181 people nationwide who took that “poll”.

Didn’t our dear leader promise to find out who was responsible in Benghazi same as Boston? Maybe those in Bean Town need to remember that BHO’s promises tend to expire after a short period of time. Ask those Americans who are still digging out from Super Storm Sandy about that.

we got a lot more important things to move on to and get done.

The arrogance is palpable.

i think his purpose is more to malign the administration than doing something productive

Even if it were decided that the attack was just some local gangsters who went out to rob a shop but picked the wrong building on account of being thicker than the proverbial planks, the peculiar, and obviously deceitful, response about the “video” still needs explaining.

I’ve never understood why some people don’t consider deceitful politicians to be a problem. Do you think it is OK for the government to “make stuff-up as they go along”? If so, please explain why.

Nice to see someone else remembers Mr. K in his non-reg uniform, replete with unauthorized wearing of ribbons, especially the unearned ones!!! Having just returned from VN, I got very hot watching that phony POS lying about his exploits and Genghis Kahn! It still upsets me and many others….. he seemed to emulate Jane Fonda, another traitorous scumbag, when he met with North Vietnamese in Paris! Both of them should have been tried for treason!

Good times huh? He testified about a year before I went over myself. I knew as a teenager he was a miserable lying sack. We have both had the pleasure to see him mature into a fine leader.

No fear. Barky already issued an executive order to arrest the maker of Four Lions. These damn filmmakers …

“What difference does it male?” Another inept, morally corrupt, coward trying to run a misdirection. How about we put our interest on Global warming?

The truth never maligns. If wrongdoing was done by the Obama administration, then we need to know and act accordingly. If no wrongdoing was done, then the Obama administration will be exonerated.

What are you afraid of?

Yeah, Lurch, toss that issue over the wall along with your medals. No need to get any answers for the victim’s families. Not legislation mind you, but answers.

Saltyron on April 18, 2013 at 5:18 PM

I served almost 11 years in the military, none of it under Obama.

I can’t imagine what it’s like to serve under a CIC that could not care less if you live or die.

Obviously this administration would like to move on rather that be inconvenienced with the death of his own Ambassador and two other Americans.

Kerry: . . we got a lot more important things to move on to and get done.

That statement alone should prove the Regime is “hiding the wiener”. Maybe we could get Kerry’s mysterious CIA man of “magic hat” fame to investigate.

SpiderMike on April 18, 2013 at 5:32 PM

Four dead unavenged Americans, a buttload of questions that haven’t been answered and we need to move on?????

Is it just me that wants to punch him in his Lurch face???

John Kerry: “We have a lot more important things to move on to” than Benghazi

Criminal conspiracy.

Dr. ZhivBlago on April 18, 2013 at 6:38 PM

For helping hide several minutes of audiotape Nixon was forced from office. For abandoning & sentencing Americans to die in Benghazi then covering it up 1) Hillary got to ‘retire’, Rice got ‘prompter’s, & Obama got re-elected….and Kerry has always been a lying, American-hating globalist dirtbag! In the infamous words of his fellow nation betraying self-serving waste of human flesh, “What does it matter now?!”

easyt65 on April 18, 2013 at 7:19 PM

“..Rice got PROMOTED…”

easyt65 on April 18, 2013 at 7:23 PM

I still want to examine John Fing ‘Horsehead’ Kerry’s discharge papers. And yes, I want to see the revisions that were added during the Carter years (as short and as miserable those were).

Purple Hearts and Silver Stars my azz.

Missilengr on April 19, 2013 at 3:44 PM

Kerry might actually enjoy making Hillary’s presidential run impossible by turning over something incriminating on Benghazi, but the problem is it probably goes to the president also, and that could bounce back on him.

Either way, they need to take him at his word and ask for all the details over again. Get some accounts from the survivors.
