Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH), head of the Freedom Caucus in Washington D.C., joined The Glenn Beck Program on Wednesday to discuss the latest GOP report on Benghazi. Like most Americans, he's being told that Benghazi doesn't matter, it's time to move on. Jordan took time to outline exactly why it does matter and it's not time to move on.
"We put this out in our report that no military assets were in motion before the attack was even over. But what did start before the event was over was the political spin," Jordan said.
Libya was supposed to be Hillary Clinton's shining moment --- the successful ousting of a brutal dictator. While other countries removed their citizens and embassies from Libya, the U.S. remained, despite a diplomatic security agent warning it was "a suicide mission" and everyone there was going to die.
Why should Benghazi matter now and beyond Hillary Clinton's political life?
"In a country as great as ours, the greatest nation ever, you have to have your leaders, particularly in times of crisis, communicate in a straightforward and honest fashion with the citizens, with the taxpayers, with the people. That is a hallmark of a government built on the rule of law. And here in this case we had just the opposite. Political concerns dominated everything," Jordan said.
