Democrat: I’m Not Here to Talk About Benghazi, I’m Here to Talk About the Middle East

Somebody needs a geography lesson, it seems.

At a recent townhall-style event in New Hampshire, Democrat Annie Kuster gave a bizarre reason for not wanting to discuss the tragedy in Benghazi … it apparently isn’t in the Middle East.

Here is a rough transcript:

REP. KUSTER: (Reading) First, can you please let me know your position about on HR 36 that would authorize a select committee to get to the bottom of Benghazi….um, I don’t have…that’s a Senate, I think…I don’t think we have anything about that in the House….

CONSTITUENT: Yes you do.

REP. KUSTER: And the rest of this is also on Benghazi, so…

CONSTITUENT: Can you address Benghazi? What are you going to do about Benghazi? Why isn’t Benghazi at the top of your issue?

REP. KUSTER: Well, I’m certainly not here to talk about it. We’re here to talk about the Middle East.

CONSTITUENT: That is the Middle East!

CONSTITUENT #2: Libya is like right in the middle of the Middle East.

CONSTITUENT: Benghazi is the Middle East!

Inaudible from the moderator, who saves her.

The moderator then adds off stage:

We don’t want to get this — There are a lot of different ideas and a lot of different opinions here. The Congresswoman was nice enough share with this audience questions on the topic and have a civil discussion. That’s why we have the postcards that state the format of answering questions.

Watch the video below:

So not only does she avoid discussing the prospect of a select committee investigating the attack, she mistakenly refers to it as not being in the Middle East.

The NRCC responds:

“Let’s be clear – Annie Kuster is a United States Congresswoman. Four Americans died as a result of the attacks in Benghazi. For her not to even address a voter’s questions about what the United States government is doing to get answers on those terrorist attacks makes her unqualified for the office which she holds.” – NRCC Spokesman Ian Prior

On a side note, I have a solution for Ms. Kuster…

 

See, if only more U.S. Americans had maps.
