Issa: Is it a ‘phony scandal’ when Americans die?

August 1, 2013

WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, at a special panel discussion with the Republican Study Committee, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (CA-49) took the President to task over his “phony scandal” rhetoric, saying:

“Brian Terry’s family does not call [his death related to Operation Fast and Furious] a phony death when he was murdered at the border. Benghazi is not phony. Four people are dead – people that shouldn’t be dead if the warnings were heeded and some of whom wouldn’t be dead if there was a relief effort mounted in time.”
