They said what they thought was the truth, and corrected the message as soon as they had better information. If there was anything important to discover, it would have been found out within a week. Instead, we've had a year and a half of a partisan witch hunt and conspiracy theories. Right wingers have been so desperate to prove that Obama is something evil or duplicitous, they want a scandal or a conspiracy so badly that they'll make one up.
    But according to the right, Obama is a dumb ass.

    Ha ha ha...yes, you definitely touched upon the most interesting aspect of schizophrenic Right.

    "Obama is an affirmative action idiot who would never have made it into Harvard if he was white..." But yet he's also a mastermind, and a manipulator with Jedi Knight mind control powers that only the Fox News crowd can break through to get to the truth.

    "Obama is a wimp in mom jeans..." But yet he is also an evil dictator who strikes people dead with drones, when he is not sicking the IRS on his enemies.

    "Obama is a Socialist, Marxist who wants to destroy capitalism..." But yet, he is also a crony capitalist who paves the way for his well-connected friends in the 1%, like George Soros, to make billions while the middle class dwindles.

    "Obama is a tool of the homosexual agenda who gives stuff to minorities, especially free contraception to women..." But yet, Obama is also a secret Muslim.

    According to the Right, the man has more dichotomies than a Siamese Twin.

    I should print and frame your post, it pretty much covered everything.

    I've changed my mind. Don't bother finding a source for your silly allegations about "select committees" being so very "special." We're done here.
    False outrage over one asking you to care enough to get answers that have been asked and avoided. All the questions can be put to rest with honest answers. why not ask for them?

    Why are you interjecting other travesties to justify finding answers to this one? Isn't about time we all demanded honest and transparent government. After all it is men and women like my own brothers and step dad who have served in these types of missions. just looking for answers.

    Because I find it a bit hypocritical for those who refused to investigate 911 or the false claims of WMD, instances where thousands died do to inept leadership and outright lies, to be up in arms because four people died in Libya.

    No one to my knowledge refused to investigate 911, as my memory serves it was fully investigated and a bipartisan commission filed a lengthy report. False claims of wmd's were also investigated. There were also reports on this and an admission by the Bush / Cheney team that their intel was wrong. If you'll remember all the congressional dem leaders voted for the authorization of force based on the same intel.

    However neither of those instances have any part to play with this investigation. Let's get the questions answered honestly so we can have an accountable and transparent government. Is that such a bad thing?

    Look closer. THere were a lot of Dems who voted no. ANd, Bush refused to testify t the 911 hearings unless accompanied by daddy Dick Cheney.

    This select committee is a farce. It's aimed at the base. Everyone not brainwashed by Fox News knows this.

    Do you remember the list of unanswered questions I asked in an earlier post? If it were a farce you'd be able to answer those questions; but no, you said you don't care. That means the investigation is valid and any attempt to downplay the importance of the select committee is an attempt to obstruct.
