On Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer downplayed efforts of the trio of Republican lawmakers’, including Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), push for a House select committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
“It's late -- it's too late,” Krauthammer said. “This should have been a year ago -- three, four more months ago. Politically speaking, the administration has won. They ran out the clock. If we had a select committee from the beginning, really had coherent hearings unlike what we've had which were disjointed hearings that let all things sort of slip away, we really would have been somewhere. We would have gotten to the bottom of this. But as a political fact, this thing is done.”
Instead he urged Republicans to focus on attacking the president’s lackluster foreign policy.
“I think right now the best thing for Republicans to do is to look at the broader foreign policy of this administration, to look at the Kerry hearings from yesterday,” he continued. “It is a disaster from one part of the globe to another. Just about everybody agrees except the most hardened and partisan Democrats and that's where you want to hit the administration. Not only for political partisan reasons, but for the good of the country. This is really hurting the country and unfortunately you only have a certain amount of time, a certain amount of attention, and the clock has run out on Benghazi. I think you have to go after Syria, the Iran negotiations, the Crimea, Ukraine, what's happening in Eastern Europe. I mean this really is a collapse of America's stature in the world.”
