    This newest "Benghazi committee" is simply repeating what about twelve other governmental committees have done over the past two years, and the reason it's doing so is crystal clear: To continue smearing Hillary Clinton and hopefully diminish her chances of running for president. It's the same reason the GOP is suddenly apoplectic with indignation because the State Department under her watch didn't put Boko Haram on the terrorist watch list... never mind the fact that her republican predecessor hadn't done so either. If you can't see that, then you, sir, are the drone. Personally, I think I'm better served by recognizing partisan bull**** whenever and where ever I see it, and not look at a party designation to decide whether it's BS or not.



    Yeah, sure. We can all see that the republicans are pure as the driven snow, but the "Dumbocrats" are the partisan ones. Whatever, dude.
    It seems as if the republicans just want a few answers. Whats the harm in asking? There are many questions that have never been answered. H. Clinton was not even questioned thoroughly nor did she give any meaningful answers.

You didn't really post that with a straight face, did you?
    There has been no other select committee on this. These committees are reserved for things like Watergate, Iran contra, and the like.

    They SAY they just want answers.

    Time will tell whether that is true or just the usual BS.

    No it wouldn't. When there is a potential for stonewalling one party has to have a committee majority or it will end without resolution. The politics will be on display for all to see, why not let the process work itself out unless one fears the outcome?

    I smell the GOP pining for the old days when they could sick a Special Prosecutor on someone.

    the "process" will be a joke. But, I bet it sells on Fox News.

    Do some research, then get back to me. There have been a dozen congressional and governmental investigations, some of them televised. The words "select committee" were chosen by the Republicans who decided to re-do everything that had already been done because... *gasp!*... it's an election year!

    If you can come up with a governmental law that says the words "select committee" can only be used for certain occasions and under different congressional rules, then by all means post it. Otherwise, you're whistling in the wind.

    I have to ask why you think it is pre-emptivley a joke?

    Do you know why there was a cia operation in Benghazi?
    Do you know who was directing the operation?
    If it was the state department, shouldn't Hillary answer as to why security requests were denied?
    If there were many others on the ground who are under gag order shouldn't they be questioned to find out what happened and how episodes like this can be avoided in the future?
    If the video was a political ruse, do you want to know why they (who ever they are) felt the need use a ruse?
    Do you want to know why there was a Cia weapons operation going on without military cover?
    Do you want to know why no military asset was asked to intervene in the attack?
    I do

    I could care less about Benghazi. It's a GOP witch hunt. If the D had balls, they'd boycott the hearings, and the principle witnesses would challenge each and every one of the subpoenas.
