    But giving the wrong cause after the fact may not be criminal. Wrong. Despicable. Maybe. but not criminal. So, there's not much of anything that can be done.
    Refusing to comply with a Congressional Subpoena ? Is that Criminal ?

    Maybe. Frankly, outside of a few vocal partisans, there is simply not much on this. It is likely that this is more hype than substance.

    now let's compare that fact with the previous republican president cited in the video insisting he was not concerned with osama bin laden

    your team screwed the pooch, allowing dubya to start a foolish war while not pursuing osama bin laden, yet now wants to incriminate the current administration, an administration which has been found by the republican chair of the house armed forces committee to say "we have no evidence that Department of State officials delayed the decision to deploy what few resources DoD had available to respond."

    Anyone that starts a sentence with "dude", needs to go back to flipping burgers.

    Sorry, but it was David Petraeus who "concocted" the video story.

    ....Representative Peter King, chairman of the House homeland security committee, emerged just after 9am to say the hearing before his committee was over. He said there were discrepancies between what Petraeus had previously told the committee about the Benghazi attack and what he said on Friday.

    King said that earlier, Petraeus had said it was principally a reaction to an anti-Muslim video produced in the US; on Friday he said it was an attack by extremists.

    Five days after the attack, the administration sent UN ambassador Susan Rice on the Sunday news shows to describe it as a spontaneous protest. Rice relied on initial intelligence that proved incorrect, and she is now under attack by some Republican senators who vow to block her if she's nominated as secretary of state when Hillary Clinton steps down. ...

    But looking back:

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush on Thursday refused to comply with subpoenas sent by House and Senate committees requesting documents about the firing of several U.S. attorneys last year.

    Then there was a republican saying this:

    When pressed on how such a thing would be possible, Gingrich suggested the use of the subpoena.

    But, Schieffer argued, "They don't have to honor the subpoenas."

    Gingrich: Congress, president can ignore courts - CBS News

    So, practically speaking, it must not be against the law.

    The Left always focuses on what's legal in wrong-doing, from officials that ought to behave well above minimum legal standards.

    The source of the narrative isn't nearly as relevent as the WH's decision to perpetuate it as a legitimate explanation to the Benghazzi attack.

    A United States Consulate and a American Ambassador were under assault by Terrorists and we get a snarky 15 year old on the Brett Bair show telling us Obama wasn't in the Situation room.

    And then we get a lie about a video.
