The Five’s Beckel Goes Ballistic over Benghazi: ‘So What?! Who Cares?!’

As his co-hosts on The Five continued to examine every angle of the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi Friday afternoon, this time focusing on comments made by a former White House spokesperson, Bob Beckel decided he had finally had enough. Deliberating echoing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Beckel pounded the table and said, “We know Islamic radicals killed these people, what difference does it make anymore?!”

“Let me finish!” Beckel shouted at Eric Bolling, as that host tried to prevent him from bringing up any issues unrelated to the Benghazi attack. When Bolling said he should care because the Obama administration “covered up” what really happened, Beckel shot back, “So what? Every administration covers things up!”

“Who cares? Who cares?” Beckel continued. “Average Americans today, they are not sitting there today and saying, ‘Gee, I wonder what happened with Benghazi.'” As the other hosts started to push back, he said, “We’ve overkilled this. The Republicans are using this purely and simply for political reasons.”
