“Though the mainstream news media is giving Obama a pass on this, our Representative, Jim Cooper, needs to be front-and-center demanding an answer from the President. When it comes to demanding accountability for the attack on American soil and the loss of American life, there are no political parties. Remember, it was Republicans, including Tennessee Senator Howard Baker, who called upon Richard Nixon to come clean during the Watergate scandal and ultimately forced him from office. Jim Cooper owes the citizens of District 5 an answer to why he is, once again, “missing in action” on this matter of high national security.”
Staats had previously called on Cooper to come on local radio with him and discuss these issues. Staats appeared Monday morning on the Steve Gill Show with the intent of engaging Congressman Cooper on his record. Cooper declined the invitation. “The Benghazi event may be a political “hot potato”, but Tennesseans deserve to know what their elected Representatives are doing to get to the truth about the deaths of their fellow citizens,” said Staats.
