Rogers: We Have Capacity To Get Benghazi Attackers, But Obama Won’t Do It

The Right Scoop

Mike Rogers told Time Magazine the other day that we know who some of the men are who participated in the Benghazi attack, that they are part of Al-Qaeda, but because of this administration’s ‘softer and gentler’ approach, they won’t go get them:

Rogers: We have numerous people that we know participated in the Benghazi attacks affiliated with al-Qaeda that are still on the battlefield. We have the capacity to get them but there’s no planning to get them. We have other serious al-Qaeda threats that normally we would take off the battlefield, but because of this Administration’s more kinder, gentler approach we have not done that.


Mike Rogers Says Obama Has Gone ‘Kinder, Gentler’ Against al-Qaeda

The retiring House Intelligence Committee chief tells TIME that Obama is leaving terrorists “on the battlefield,” and explains his charge that Edward Snowden is “under the influence” of Russia’s security service.

When you think of spring break, you probably don’t envision a congressional hearing on Benghazi. But politics runs deep in the home of Mike Rogers, the House Intelligence Committee chairman, whose college-age son is spending his time off from school in Washington, D.C., this month, and who attended the hearing his dad convened Wednesday on the 2012 tragedy in Libya that Republicans call a scandal and Democrats a dead horse. “Don’t give him any ideas,” Rogers said with a chuckle when TIME suggested to his son that spring break should be enjoyed on a Florida beach, not in a Rayburn building hearing room.
