    Pelosi picks 5 democrats for panel on benghazi

    Representative Nancy Pelosi of California on Wednesday appointed a full slate of senior House Democrats to a special committee investigating the 2012 attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, surprising some in her party by giving legitimacy to an inquiry many had dismissed as a political stunt.

    Ms. Pelosi conceded that congressional Democrats were divided on the wisdom of the move, but argued that by participating, Democrats could influence the direction of the investigation and get access to documents and other evidence.
    i guess if there is going to be a honest investigation, better to have a true bipartisan committee and not a one-sided monologue.

    Heya UWS Yeah.....and after the Demos big Powwow. After all that grandstanding and hoopla of they weren't going to be part of it. They decide that the Political fall out is to Big to allow the Republicans to be the full discourse.

    Although.....the one Surprise is going to be, when they tell Cummings his ass is going to take deposition whther he want to or not. Or he can just put his head on the silver platter and save us a lot of time and energy.

    But really.....Boehner should go back to Pelosi and tell her. No can do with Cummings.....they are going to be putting him thru an Ethics investigation. So he can't be trusted with much that he says out of his mouth. Which we will be spreading that word thru his home district. My hope is.....he don't get a peaceful night of sleep. Until its all over and hes hooked up.

    You're wrong MMC, Rep. Elijah Cummings is a good guy and your attempt to say he had something to do with targeting conservatives is BS.

    Elijah Cummings isn't a good guy.....that's why he has been submitted for an Ethics Investigation due to himself catching his ownself up and lying over Contact with True the Vote.

    Now he might be a good team player for the Demos and be true and true.....but this never made him a good guy, in the first place.

    the democrats that were selected by Pelosi to be on the commit all had experience in prior inquiries.

    The Democrats chosen were Mr. Cummings, who clashed repeatedly over Benghazi with the chairman of the Oversight Committee, Representative Darrell Issa of California; Adam Smith of Washington, the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee; Adam B. Schiff of California, a member of the Intelligence Committee; Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, a decorated and severely wounded combat veteran of the Iraq war; and Linda T. Sánchez of California, the ranking Democrat on the Ethics Committee.
    none of the republicans chosen to be members of the committee are not experienced in foreign policy or military affairs.

    I think its finally sinking in to these slow democrat operatives that this isn't a phony scandal. If not, they will come around.

    Re: Pelosi picks 5 democrats for panel on benghazi

    I have no doubt how this will all play out. Both parties will play politics, at the end of the day the GOP will do nothing but attack the failure and incompetence, the democrats will do nothing but defend at all cost, and there will be a big congressional circle jerk with both parties saying "look what we did!"

    It would be awesome if they were all interested in getting answers and putting the whole thing to bed. Not going to happen.

    Yeah.....and? Don't look the Demos can say the Repubs have any on the panel that can play off of their experience.....huh?


    I mean if we use your analogy.....then why did BO send the FBI to go and investigate in Benghazi, into a Foreign Country. When they have no experience in Foreign Affairs and none in Military? Why wasn't CID investigating? Military Intels?

    They knew who hit us.....and lied about it. Especially after they found out it was Ansar al Sharia. Then there was no way for them to Hide the fact that Hillary and her Team Hired them as Security for Benghazi.

    I doubt this to be the case. I think the democrats selected will simply provide top cover for the administration and if you dare to disagree with them or call them out they will make it be about the GOP attacking a war veteran or women in general, or any issue BUT what they are actually there to investigate. This goatrope goes nowhere.
