Graham, McCain Praise Obama’s Pick of Nuland

Her role in the Benghazi talking points controversy doesn’t seem to be causing Victoria Nuland trouble.

Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., released a statement Friday praising her nomination to serve as assistant secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs.

Nuland, a State Department spokeswoman and a former adviser to President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, had urged that the Benghazi talking points compiled by the CIA be changed out of concern that reports of repeated warnings would feed members of Congress looking to beat up her department.

“Ambassador Victoria Nuland has a long and distinguished record of service to our nation in both Republican and Democrat Administrations. She is knowledgeable and well-versed on the major foreign policy issues as well as respected by foreign policy experts in both parties,” the Republican senators said in a statement. “We look forward to her upcoming confirmation hearings in the United States Senate.”

McCain and Graham have led the charge in the Senate against the administration for its handling of the Benghazi, Libya, attacks. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on which both senators serve, has not yet set a date for Nuland’s confirmation hearing.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

    With every little thing which appears to be building within this subject material, a significant percentage of perspectives happen to be quite refreshing. Having said that, I appologize, because I can not give credence to your entire theory, all be it refreshing none the less. It appears to everyone that your remarks are actually not entirely validated and in simple fact you are yourself not really fully certain of your point. In any event I did take pleasure in reading through it.

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
