Sen. Cruz: Syria Distracting From Benghazi

Here is the money quote from an interview Sen. Ted Cruz had this weekend on ABC: “One of the problems with all of this focus on Syria is its missing the ball from what we should be focused on, which is the grave threat from radical Islamic terrorism. This is the one-year anniversary of the attack on Benghazi.  In Benghazi, four Americans were killed - including the first ambassador since 1979.”

So, if you did not before know that there was a difference between being smart and being sane, there you have it. Cruz is smart - he went to Harvard. But, this conservative conspiracy theorizing about the attacks on Benghazi are insane.
