Ingraham Mocked By Fox Panel: Benghazi 'Will Never Go Away... At Least, With You'

A Fox News panel on Sunday laughed at the expense of conservative radio host Laura Ingraham after one guest mocked her for bringing up Benghazi in every discussion.

A Fox News panel on Sunday laughed at the expense of conservative radio host Laura Ingraham after one guest mocked her for bringing up Benghazi in every discussion.

During a Fox News Sunday panel on President Barack Obama's 2014 West Point commencement address, host Chris Wallace asked Ingraham if the speech reflected the "Obama Doctrine."

Ingraham admitted that the president's policies reflected the will of the American people, "who are weary of all these military engagements."

"However, the idea that the president goes to West point and says we've never been stronger relative to the rest of the world, I'm sorry, that doesn't even pass the straight-face test," she remarked. "I thought it was a very odd speech, and it was not well received. And that didn't surprise me at all given its tenor and its tone."

Washington Post columnist Bob Woodward argued that the president would have been better off not articulating foreign policy to U.S. enemies because "the explaining is just not working."

"At the same time, there are two jobs there president has," he continued. "And that is to protect the country, and to avoid unnecessary wars. And if you look at the record, you have to give Obama some credit. He's protected the country, and we have not had another war or unnecessary war."

Even though the prior panel segment had been focused on the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Ingraham took the opportunity to bring it up again.

"Benghazi, diplomatic mission on 9/11/12, we kind of failed on that regard, don't you think?" she asked. "That is the country!"

"Well, you are underscoring my point that this will never go away. At least, with you," Woodward quipped, triggering laughter from the entire panel.

"I actually don't think it's funny when an ambassador is murdered," Ingraham grumbled.
