Kerry to Congress on Benghazi: Get over it!

Oh no. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry doesn’t think the terrorist attack in Benghazi is important anymore, but placated lawmakers who still want answers from the Obama administration.

Kerry testified Wednesday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee for the first time since becoming secretary in a hearing called, “Securing U.S. Interests Abroad: The FY 2014 Foreign Affairs Budget.”

U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher told Kerry he believes Americans were lied to about Benghazi by the Obama administration and asked Kerry if he was committed to answering the many questions still surrounding the events before, during and after the attack on the U.S. Consulate.

Kerry pooh-poohed all Rohrabacher’s concerns, but promised to give Congress whatever it is they think they haven’t already been given.

Kerry actually said about a terrorist attack that got four American diplomats killed:

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.

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. [Emphasis added].
