    Re: Republican-led report debunks Benghazi theories and accusations

    I don' think this report about a report is true at all. Drudge report used to give the Benghazi story a huge amount of space and had big headline banners every time a pundit commented on it. Today - there is nothing. So this is simply not true.

    Re: Republican-led report debunks Benghazi theories and accusations

    Prior to Benghazi, were there 13 attacks on embassies ... under President Bush?

    On May 5, 2014, Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., told MSNBC host Ed Schultz that there has already been exhaustive testimony and investigation of the incident.

    "This thing is just going on and on to boredom actually," Garamendi said. "The Armed Services Committee actually did a hearing and the result was there’s nothing here. That’s obviously a great tragedy, but Ed, during the George W. Bush period, there were 13 attacks on various embassies and consulates around the world. Sixty people died. In Karachi, there was a death of one of our diplomats, and those were not investigated during that period of time because it was a tragedy."
    Interesting conclusion -
    Overall, we found Garamendi slightly understated the number of deadly attacks and total fatalities, even using a strict definition. ... so we rate it Mostly True.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    Sure you can because after the numerous investigations it made no difference.

    BS. Dems had opportunity to hang Beruit politically around Reagan's neck. They did not. Please prove they did.

    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 University’s security studies program.

    One reason, he said, is that an American ambassador died in the attack, which hadn’t 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."..."<

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.
    Where was all this concern about the lives lost when all the republicans and their sheeple were dancing on their graves and disgracing their memories by fabricating lie after lie about Benghazi? NOW that they've been proven to be liars, you just now care about the politics of this topic? There were so many BS Benghazi threads they had to make a whole subforum for the threads in here. All of it lies. If you want to stand up for the people who got killed there, take on all those idiots who made that subforum flow with trumped up crap all in their name.

    Dude, Benghazi wasn't even on an Embassy, it wasn't even on a Consulate.

    It was on a CIA mission.
