Charles Krauthammer Reacts to First Benghazi Charges: 'It's About Time


"It turns out the administration tried to run from Benghazi, but can’t hide."

While he is happy to see federal charges filed in the Benghazi investigation, Charles Krauthammer is still curious what took the Obama administration so long.

"Well, it’s about time. It turns out the administration tried to run from Benghazi, but can’t hide," he said. "I think it’s a little curious the timing of this leak about the charges being filed against the Benghazi suspects. We have known who they are. Obviously journalists have spoken with them. They’ve been out there in the open for days, for weeks, for months."

The syndicated columnist argued it's "better late than never" but he said the situation reminds him of the way the Clinton administration handled the attack on the U.S.S. Cole. The U.S. sent the FBI to investigate in Yemen but they faced "resistance by authorities" in the country.

"We were then pre-9/11, looking at the law enforcement paradigm, treating it like a crime instead of like war. I’m glad that we have the sealed indictments, but the question is if we have the intelligence, we have CIA on the ground, we have operatives out there, why haven’t we snatched them, interrogated them," Krauthammer explained.

"The answer is that this administration from the beginning decided to undo everything the Bush administration had done, so we’ve had no interrogations, nowhere to put them, nowhere in Guantanamo. All you can do is an indictment, a trial in New York, or nothing," he concluded.
