    Why, can you call BO and ask him to issue another? Cmon now.....I am still having fun watching how the MS media keeps saying that BO is defending himself and his EO . You don't want them to have more ammunition, do ya?

    Why do you think they keep using the word defend?

    Hillary doesn't scare anyone, ( maybe herself when she looks in the mirror every morning )

    She went out and campaigned for Democrats in the Mid terms.

    Did it help ? NO

    Did Democrats who ran on being " Clinton " Democrats win their elections ? NO

    Has Marry Landrieu of Louisiana called Hillary down to help her Win her run-off election ? NO

    She's as toxic as Obama.

Does it not strike you as odd that with all the bruhaha you claimed went on in Benghazi not a single person has yet to be found guilty of anything? Do you believe this is coincidental?
    A reasonable question to ask is why didn't Boehner begin this with a select committee? I believe he was helping the cover-up. Any number of fractured investigations done by politicians without the aid of qualified investigators will go nowhere. A select committee with a qualified staff, the right to depose witnesses and question them under oath may uncover the truth. Boehner knows it. So why did he wait until now?

    So you believe Boehner was helping cover up, but now he is ready to select a committee to find the truth that he helped cover it up? Even your conspiracies are BS and make no sense.

    It is not about what I believe happened, or what I think will be included in something de-classified at a later date.

    My statement is entirely about the politics of this of this "special panel" and the likelihood it will result in something found, or action taken, or something.

    From my chair, Boehner is doing this purely for partisan politics. This has nothing to do with honor for those lives lost, or some request from their families. That just sounds good when standing in front of the mic. This is about dealing with Obama now and potentially Clinton in 2016. Even though I think Warren has a better chance than Clinton, Republicans are making moves against any contingency.

    At the same time, the 114th Congress will continue dismal approval ratings with all this activity devoid of actually getting to truth. Perception of truth has more political capital, Benghazi included.

    Yes. If Boehner had wanted the truth he would have appointed a select committee, provided the appropriate budget for it, and let it run for a year.

    Time has passed. Documents have disappeared. Witnesses will have forgotten much and are sure to remember events differently today. It will be far harder after several years have elapsed to establish the truth. Boehner can starve the select committee for resources. He can drag out appointing the other members of the select committee.

    I believe they make no sense to you because you don't know enough yet to draw correct conclusions.

    Why would Boehner allow the regime this kind of cover? He is a drunk. He probably has skeletons he prefers remain in the closet. By the time the select committee finishes its work in a year or so who is going to care?

    You just continue to prove that some Republicans, no matter WHAT evidence is presented or by whom (a Gop-led investigation) you will continue with this conspiracy nonsense.

    Well good luck in your "crusade", you have many "intelligent" people that think as you such as the truthers, the birthers, etc.

    I understand your need to dismiss.

    To what crusade do you refer? Do you type whatever pops into your head? I believe you do.

    It depends on how it is brought out.....as to the Select Committee. Its difference is in the action it can take. Whereas the other committees (plural) couldn't take any action.

    Although the Senate Committee did file the lawsuit to Compel Morrell to Testify as to who was changing talking points. All it took was filing it to the court and presto chango. Someone grabs the Mic. Not many mention that part. Especially not those on the left here. Its like they were trying to avoid that fact.

    It isn't purely for politics when none has taken any responsibility other than saying those words. Moreover.....Clinton never checked back on her people to see if they made it out alive. Which was confirmed by herself that she did not speak to anyone until the next morning, after talking to Hicks.

    While not a crime in itself.....it does point to her True Character.
