During House committee hearings on President Obama’s proposed intervention into the Syrian civil war, U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., began his questioning of Secretary of State John Kerry by talking about Benghazi and holding up a photo of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods.

Things quickly became heated.
“I cannot discuss the possibility of the U.S. involvement without talking about Benghazi,” Duncan said. “The administration has a serious credibility issue with the American people.”
“The same administration that was so quick to involve the U.S. in Syria now was reluctant to use the same resources at its disposal to attempt a rescue to four brave Americans that fought for their lives in Benghazi,” he continued.
Kerry replied forcefully: “I’m not going to sit here and be told by you that I don’t have a sense of what the judgment is,” he said. “We are talking about people being killed by gas and you want to go talk about Benghazi and Fast & Furious.”
Twitter users were quick to weigh in, as chronicled by Twitchy.com:
