Sen. Graham Calls on Obama to Hand Over Daily Intel Briefings
Tonight on "Hannity," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said President Barack Obama shifts blame to protect himself and is throwing the intel community under the bus regarding the ISIS threat. He called on the president to turn over his daily intel briefings as George W. Bush did.
“I can’t imagine the commander-in-chief in the time in which we live not listening and asking questions everyday about the threats we face. Does he have a television? Does he read the newspaper? Clearly, the rise of ISIS was there to be seen, but on the ‘60 Minutes’ program, he shifted blame. That’s unfair if it’s not true, and if it is true, somebody needs to be fired.”
Graham also weighed in on Mark Levin's remarks on Hannity last night, when he accused President Barack Obama of a “full-blown cover-up” on ISIS.
“The problem that we all have is that we don’t trust the president of the United States to be honest with us. This is the same guy who said, ‘I never referred to ISIS as the JV team,’ when he did. This is the same guy that said, ‘It was the Iraqi’s decision not to leave troops behind, not mine.’ This is the same guy that blamed a video two weeks after the Benghazi attack that had nothing to do with it,” he said.
Graham also told Sean Hannity that he thinks Obama is guarding two failed legacies: ObamaCare and getting the U.S. out of Iraq.
