Gowdy: ‘Difficult To Explain’ Why Video Became ‘Central Talking Point’ During Benghazi Attack, But Nothing Done About It Before Attack

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) stated, “it is hard for me to explain to the families of those who were killed, how the video became such a central talking point, while the attack was going on, but nobody did anything about the video before the attack happened.”

Gowdy said, “Okay, so maybe we were caught off guard in Cairo, although we weren’t, we had advanced notice, go ahead and give that to the Department of Defense. Cairo happened. How did you change your posture or your readiness after Cairo? And the answer was they did not. So, it is hard for me to explain to the families of those who were killed, how the video became such a central talking point, while the attack was going on, but nobody did anything about the video before the attack happened. That is difficult to explain to moms and wives.”
