    Nothing.

    In 2025, the final, final word will be issued, when the last of the last of the investigations finally wraps up.

    The Libbos can't seem to shutup about Beirut.

    No matter what conclusion this report comes to, it doesn't change all the other lies the regime told about Benghazi.

    Internal and public executive branch communications about the attacks on United States facilities in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012;
    Accountability for policies and decisions related to the security of facilities in Benghazi, Libya, and the response to the attacks, including individuals and entities responsible for those policies and decisions;

    The House on Thursday voted 232-186 to create a select committee to investigate the 2012 attack that killed four Americans at a diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya.

    ...creating a special panel was necessary to determine whether the administration painted a false narrative about the Benghazi attack to protect President Obama’s foreign policy record as he ran for a second term.

The 2014 study found that trolls operate as agents of chaos on the Internet, exploiting hot-button issues to make users appear overly emotional or foolish in some manner. If an unfortunate person falls into their trap, trolling intensifies for further, merciless amusement. This is why novice Internet users are routinely admonished, "Do not feed the trolls!" The 2013 study found that trolls often have a high expectation of what it means to be successful, which is higher than they are able to attain, and this results in them resenting others who think they are successful but who fall below their standards.

    No no j-mac, you're not doing that. You're stating why the committee was created. You're not educating anyone on why it is the 'final word' on the matter. Can you tell us why this committee is the final word on the issue ?

Ambassador Susan Rice, whose public statements after the attack incensed critics who said the administration was avoiding calling the attack terrorism."

    and...

    "The Select Committee on Benghazi received the Intelligence committee's report on the Benghazi terrorist attack (in August), and has reviewed it along with other committee reports and materials as the investigation proceeds," spokesman Jamal D. Ware said in a statement. "It will aid the Select Committee's comprehensive investigation to determine the full facts of what happened in Benghazi, Libya before, during and after the attack and contribute toward our final, definitive accounting of the attack on behalf of Congress."

    So, excuse me if I'd like to wait until the Select committee finishes their work...
    And undoubtedly after the Select Committee finishes their work, you'll want to wait for another committee - until eventually you get a result that says not only was Hilary Clinton criminally negligent, but she actually planned the attack. You guys are nothing if not predictable.
