Krauthammer: Obama Claiming Ignorance About Benghazi Survivors Is "Stunning"


CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Well, there were two things that surprised me. First, is that Obama was asked about a story that broke last night on FOX -- that the administration is threatening State Department career employees who want to talk about what really happened in Benghazi. The president's answer? He hadn't heard about that. That could be true, a little bit hard to believe. That was, I thought, rather stunning. Since he knew that the first question would go to Ed Henry, and since Ed Henry is from FOX News, and there was a big story on FOX News last night.

The second thing that surprised me was that no one in the press corps asked about the Mirandizing of the terrorist who was in the hospital. That is a scandal of the first order. Here we are scurrying around the world trying to speak to people who might have known about the plot -- looking at the wife, looking at others -- and here in the hospital, is the one guy on planet earth who knows more about the plot, other explosives, other accomplices, other plans, other plots, anything out there, he would know more than anybody living. And this administration allows him to be Mirandized and shut up part way through the interrogation. That is a scandal of the first order. (O'Reilly Factor, April 30, 2013)
