Joe Lieberman: “I Respectfully Separate From My Two Amigos”
Senator Joe Lieberman has broken with Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain on whether the Obama administration should be investigated by a Watergate-style select committee about the September 11 deaths in Libya. Lieberman and Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss were questioned by Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.
WALLACE: Do you think that we need … do we need a special committee or can your standing committees do it?
CHAMBLISS: Well first of all these two guys are two of my best friends and two of Joe’s best friends. We travel a lot together to some very dangerous places but the committees within the United States Senate are very capable of investigating this in the right way and this is one time I have a slight disagreement with my good friends.
LIEBERMAN: Yeah I respectfully separate from my two amigos on this one and I agree with Saxby. This was a tragedy but it doesn’t rise to the level of 9/11/01. Our committees can handle this and come up with answers.
