Americans should be proud of that non-political, bipartisan cooperation into a serious issue, and yet this thread is full of politics from those on the left without an apparent care for those who lost their lives.

    I didn't see any reference to how the State Department or the White House handled the matter - both as it relates to security leading up to the attacks and the dissemination of false story lines following the events. Perhaps it's in the report or perhaps that was outside of the jurisdiction of the House Intelligence Committee.

    Bottom line, those who complain that the House Republicans are driven solely by politics and attempts to embarrass the President and his administration should be heartened by the fact that at least some members of Congress are serious about their roles in oversight.
    This just in - that's exactly what drives them. There have been more investigations and finger pointing for Benghazi from the Republicans than ever took place after 9/11. Want to compare available intelligence and body counts on those two incidents?

    Yeah, apparently he is. Benghazi is only an issue because of the left!

    I can only conclude that these people are nuts.

    Interesting how the left keeps changing the definition of words to further a political agenda.

    From your own link.

    > "Is Benghazi different? Absolutely," said Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and an adjunct assistant professor in Georgetown Universityís security studies program.

    One reason, he said, is that an American ambassador died in the attack, which hadnít happened since the 1970s. Another relevant question, Gartenstein-Ross said, "is whether what happened was put to the American people in an honest manner, not just with respect to the administration, but also with respect to the intelligence community."..."<
    Actually, Benghazi wasn't an embassy. Had it been an embassy there would have been a significant marine presence there. If you're going to rave, at least get your facts right.
