First, I do not like or trust Lindsey Graham …
I do not trust Lindsey Graham any more that I trust John McCain; both aisle-hopping RINO (Republican In Name Only) who appear to talk tough, but only end up following the democrat playbook.
Second, read Graham’s Facebook page …
Note Graham’s rhetoric … “We’re going to find a system failure before, during, and after the attacks.” Pretty much the same rhetoric used by State Department’s Accountability Review Board for Benghazi. With systemic issues, it is the system, not individuals, who are on trial. Hence, if Benghazi can be explained by a “systemic failure,” Hillary Clinton and her fellow travelers walk free. Free to pursue a 2016 presidential bid without substantial damage. Damage which will be characterized by the mainstream media as “old news” --
State Department Accountability Review Board for Benghazi
Pursuant to Title III of the Omnibus Diplomatic and Antiterrorism Act of 1986, 22 U.S.C. § 4831 et seq., (the “Act”), Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton convened an Accountability Review Board (ARB) for Benghazi to examine the facts and circumstances surrounding the September 11-12, 2012, killings of four U.S. government personnel, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, John Christopher Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya.
(Findings – Page 4) Systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department (the “Department”) resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.
(Page 12) The Board recognizes that poor performance does not ordinarily constitute a breach of duty that would serve as a basis for disciplinary action but is instead addressed through the performance management system. However, the Board is of the view that findings of unsatisfactory leadership performance by senior officials in relation to the security incident under review should be a potential basis for discipline recommendations by future ARBs, and would recommend a revision of Department regulations or amendment to the relevant statute to this end.

Bottom line …
RINOs like McCain and Graham may insure that the damage is contained and Hillary escapes relatively free of taint. Perhaps with the blame being placed of Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta? But, who knows, maybe something will come from the Benghazi hearings.
