Sen. Lindsey Graham on Sunday leveled conspiracy charges against the White House for attempting to cover up the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the Libyan embassy that killed a U.S. ambassador.
Graham said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” he knows for a fact the administration was told within 24 hours of the incident it was carried out by al-Qaida operatives.
“They’re trying to sell a narrative, quite frankly, that the mid East, the wars are receding, and al-Qaida’s been dismantled,” the South Carolina Republican said. “And to admit that our embassy was attacked by al-Qaida operatives and Libya, leading from behind, didn’t work, I think undercuts that narrative. They never believed the media would investigate. Congress was out of session. It just caught up with them.
