    well head GOP hater Bill Maher claims that this scandal is nothing proves the point that the Dems really did screw up. When a guy who slurps Obama like Maher is trying to minimize this major screw up, you know there really is something there

The "real truth", if anyone has even managed to figure it out yet, would be in thousands of pages of investigative results, which interest neither journalist nor congress-critter.
    This isn't just a congressional hearing, it is a select committee. That means it will be more like a an even handed deposition designed to get to the truth.

    If it was even-handed it would be bipartisan, 6-6 evenly split between democrats and republicans, not 7-5 GOP.

    It's a slobber fest pandering to the base, just in time for fundraising. Get your checkbooks out, boys.

    It's a select committee of Republicans, re-doing everything that 12 other "select committees" have already investigated and submitted reports on. The few democrats "invited" have not even been told if they will be allowed to call their own witnesses or question those who Republicans will call. C'mon. You didn't really post that with a straight face, did you?

The actual reports submitted by bi-partisian investigations have either been cherry-picked for quotes or totally ignored. Husby had Fox News on over the weekend, and they are still harping about Rice's words, when was a terrorist attack a terrorist attack and who knew what when... all crap from a couple weeks after the incident, when Libya was saying one thing and DC was trying to figure out what happened, while being denied access to the site itself.

    Everything else is pure, unadulterated fabrication, speculation, commentary, and partisian bull****.

    I don't have much respect for either the republicans or the democrats when it comes to partisian smokescreens and slight of hand. This time it's the republicans. Next time it'll be the democrats. Bull**** all around.
    Why not just tell the truth then no reworking would be needed. oh nevermind
