House Democrat Dodges Benghazi Question at Forum 'About the Middle East' Rep. Annie Kuster (D-NH) faced some fire from her constituents at a recent event over not having a response for a question about last year’s terrorist attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Kuster denied Benghazi was associated with U.S. policy in the Middle East and avoided offering a response to the question. Partial transcript as follows: REP. KUSTER: (Reading) First, can you please let me know your position about on HR 36 that would authorize a select committee to get to the bottom of Benghazi….um, I don't have…that's a Senate, I think…I don't think we have anything about that in the House…. CONSTITUENT: Yes you do. REP. KUSTER: And the rest of this is also on Benghazi, so… CONSTITUENT: Can you address Benghazi? What are you going to do about Benghazi? Why isn't Benghazi at the top of your issue? REP. KUSTER: Well, I'm certainly not here to talk about it. We're here to talk about the Middle East. CONSTITUENT: That is the Middle East! CONSTITUENT #2: Libya is like right in the middle of the Middle East. CONSTITUENT: Benghazi is the Middle East!
