Ted Cruz Suggests Democrats 'Can't Handle the Truth' on Benghazi

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) suggested that Democrats could not handle the truth on Benghazi, quoting Jack Nicholson from the movie A Few Good Men during a floor debate with Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ).

“The response of the administration, and sadly the response of Senate Democrats, has been partisan stonewalling, rather than trying to get to the truth. In the immortal lines of Jack Nicholson, it makes one think perhaps they can’t handle the truth,” Cruz said.

Cruz requested a Senate vote to join the House select committee to investigate the terrorist attacks in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.

“This body should join with the House of Representatives with a joint select committee to get to the bottom of what happened, why we didn’t protect Americans, why we didn’t stop this attack, and why we haven’t captured the terrorists who killed four Americans, including our Ambassador,” Cruz said on the floor.

Cruz’s motion was blocked by Menendez, who derided the effort as a “political trick” used by Republicans to “fire up their base.”

Trey Gowdy appears to be more than capable of making his case. Mr. Gowdy also seems to understand that the media is his adversary.

It would be wise for Republicans to rally behind Mr. Gowdy, but let Trey Gowdy do the talking.
