    Republican-led report debunks Benghazi theories and accusations

    Oh dear, what will the True Believers say now

    Republican-led report debunks Benghazi accusations - CNN.com

    An investigative report prepared by the House Intelligence Committee finds little to support questions raised about CIA actions on the ground in Benghazi, Libya, the night of a deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound.

    The report, from Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Michigan, and ranking member Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Maryland, concludes there was no intelligence failure prior to the attack, no stand-down order to CIA operatives trying to go assist at the besieged consular building, and found conflicting intelligence in the wake of the attack about the motive and cause, which were reflected in early public comments by the administration.
    I wonder why the report was released late on a Friday

    Given the large number of investigations into the terrorist attack, all of which reached broadly similar conclusions, this outcome really isn't surprising.

    This is impossible.

    The congressman from my district said that he is going to disclose whatever it is that Obama was hiding. Surly Trey wasn't implying that he had knowledge that Obama was hiding something when he didn't have such knowledge. That would make him a lier, we all know that a lifelong politician who has never held a private sector job would never tell such a lie.

    Republicans should pay a heavy price for this, but they won't. They won't even learn their lesson because no one holds them accountable. Two years of politics-polluting vitriol and it ends with a report that quietly lets Republicans off the hook. These same Republicans will be stirring up sh!t again the next time Obama sneezes.

    Until then, to all Benghazi drum-beaters, you're a bunch of losers. Pack your sh!t up and get the f**k out of here.

    Mark my words 20 years from now they will still be bringing up Benghazi anytime the Obama presidency is mentioned.

    That's because squeamish Dems won't hold them accountable.
    Just as Republicans didn't pay a price for their October 2013 government shutdown either--because of the piss-poor messaging machine of the National Dems.
    Meanwhile, Kochs were spending tens of millions pounding Southern Senate Democrats over the roll-out of ACA.
    And all we heard from Dems was the silence of Dukakis .

    Guy, Republicans have moved to a new issue. Benghazi Schmengazhi. It's all about EOs now.

    Re: Republican-led report debunks Benghazi theories and accusations

    I've said this before, and I'll say it again... I don't expect our government to be perfect, especially when it comes to incidents like this that take place over seas in a hostile part of the world. I've always believed that if any mistakes were made by the Administration or State Department, that we just need to learn from them so we handle things better next time. The way I see it, as long it wasn't a case of blatant incompetence or complete disregard for American lives, there is no need to look for heads to put on a chopping block.

    My biggest issue with the entire Benghazi incident right from the beginning, was the fact that the Obama Administration lied to the American people, and did so not to protect national security, not because details were classified, and not as a means to prevent more violence from occuring... They lied purely for personal political gain because the truth might have negatively effected the presidents reelection bid. To make matters worse, the Administration blamed the attack and the deaths of those 4 Americans, on an innocent man who's only crime was exercising his freedom of expression by making and publishing a video on YouTube, that many Muslims found offensive... The Administration then had the man arrested and turned his life completely upside down, all because they were afraid that if they told the truth about what really happened and why, it might cost them a few votes.

    They made up phony excuses and pinned the blame on an innocent person all for political gain... In my opinion, any person or party possessing that kind of selfishness and lack of character, present more of a danger to our nation than terrorism ever could and do not deserve to hold elected office PERIOD...

    But that's what happens when the media abandons investigative journalism to become political cheerleaders, and half the American public acts like their voting for prom king on election day, rather than our nations leader.

    Depends on whether you want to include context. Dunno why so many are afraid of context, but it seems they are.
