Republican’s Michele Bachmann (Minnesota), Louie Gohmert (Texas), Steve King (Iowa) are visiting Libya.
For people living outside of the US, these three politicians are considered to be on the far right of the Republican party and members of the Tea Party Coalition.
Steve King has called the events in Benghazi 10 time bigger than Watergate.
Louie Gohmert blamed John McCain for the death of ambassador Chris Stevens and said the US should not have helped Libya.
Michele Bachmann did not even know that Libya was in Africa and said it was the wrong decision to support Libya.
It is very curious to see them in Tripoli posing for photos with Libyan politicians who are either clueless or not exercising their best judgement.
These 3 congress members do not care about Libya. They have used “Benghazi” as a political buzz word to try and drive down President Obama’s approval ratings, stir fake outrage and push forward their failed political agenda. The only outcome of this visit will be fake moral outrage and more calls for investigations.
When you have statesmen like John McCain or John Kerry meet with Libyan’s you see the urgency to provide help and improve the situation on the ground. When you see these three, you realize its a very cynical world out there.
