Krauthammer’s Take: State Dept Response to Benghazi Hearing ‘Pathetic’


Charles Krauthammer called State Departmant spokesman Patrick Ventrell’s response to the Benghazi Hearing “pathetic.” Ventrell told reporters earlier today, ”We dont believe that new information was necessarily presented that hadn’t been already either entered into the pbulic record through congressional testimony or investigated by the ARB or otherwise looked at.”

“That statement from the State Department is pathetic. They’re still hanging on, they’re still trying to cover their tracks,” Krauthammer argued, though he went on to say he believes John Kerry will in fact conduct a thorough investigation into the events. “I believe the new secretary of state when he says he is going to look into this after all. He is entirely untained and he would be tainted if he continues in the cover-up.”
