Wasserman-Schultz found it shocking that Morgan would accuse U.N. ambassador Susan Rice of being “deliberately misleading” on the nature of the attacks. Morgan followed up by asking if Rice was simply wrong. Wasserman-Schultz said that as more information came out, it became clearer that it was a terrorist attack, and U.S. officials were just going on the information they had at the time.
After Wasserman-Schultz twice tried to criticize the Republicans for politicizing the attacks, Morgan told her she was wasting time on the wrong issue entirely.
“You’re flogging the wrong dead horse! It isn’t about what Mitt Romney or Republicans did. The really… important horse that should be flogged is the behavior and the statements of those who were in positions of responsibility and, we would assume, knowledge, and it’s pretty un-American… to put out completely false statements before you know the facts, isn’t it?”
