Soledad O’Brien’s interview with Republican Joe Heck grew awkward when she asked the congressman to repeat himself over and over again.
Host O’Brien first asked Heck what he would like to learn from David Petraeus when he testifies before a congressional hearing on the Benghazi attack. Her next question was whether he would prevent Ambassador Susan Rice’s confirmation if she is nominated as Secretary of State by the President.
On his Heck said, "The fact is you can't put somebody out as the face of the issue on all the Sunday morning talk shows, and then turn around weeks later and say she knew nothing about the incident and had nothing to do with it. That's just plainly wrong."
However, O’Brien quickly fired back at Heck by comparing the situation of Rice with Condoleezza Rice when she said that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. "If you use that measurement...and then later you determine that the information was wrong, isn't that exactly analogous to what happened with Condoleezza Rice?"
When Heck tried to clarify the situation, O’Brien cut him off and said, "You've lost me completely. Let's back up again. I'm sorry, forgive me. But you've lost me."
