For Representative Jason Chaffetz, the United State’s criminal charges against an alleged Libyan militia commander involved in the Benghazi attacks are too little too late and don’t display a serious commitment to the matter.
Chaffetz expressed skepticism about “the new information that the government suddenly has to file charges” against Ahmed Abu Khattala. He questioned why the government decided to keep the charges sealed, despite the fact that they could be made public (news of the charges was reported yesterday).
He explained the Obama administration has clearly shown little interest in the investigation, but didn’t offer an explanation as to why. “Why wasn’t it a top priority when Secretary Clinton testified before Congress months after the attack?” he asked, referencing her infamous “at this point, what difference does it make?” exclamation about what led to the attack.
