    BTW, we armed the Libyan rebels directly when they were overthrowing Qaddafi. You know who he was. Right?

    BTW, as to the distance issue. When Libya was arming Syrian rebels, Libya had a functioning government, weapons deals with Muslim rebels in Syria and working out the logistics was just part of that government's operation.

    The Rebels in Syria have no way to ship weapons to Libya. For them shipping arms several thousand miles is a impossible. Besides, the Syrian rebels need their weapons. Are you suggesting that Assad ships arms to his enemies in Libya?
    Are you saying that there is a reasonable chance that a gun running operation of some kind was happening in the area? Sounds like there is room for more questions to be answered, Right? BTW My question about the direction of weapon shipments aren't my allegations or inventions. Former military personnel have suggested this. I just think the questions are worth asking. Is there something you'd rather not know?

    This crap has been investigated to death. You guys and your show trials.

    Like I said, I am happy the GOP is doing this. Impeachment cost the GOP the majority and sent Gingrich packing. I imagine this nonsense will result in a few GOP heads rolling as well.

    Have at it. I'll be laughing my ass off.
    The investigation could have been finished in the first round had the white house fully co-operated. And the truth is that you are not laughing. You are in reality quite nervous about what could come out of the investigation and how it will affect the democrats in the midterms in November.

    If the CIA is involved, any information about said operation would be top secret.

    Yea, it would. That would mean that in the unfortunate case of a botched operation, a cover story would be needed.

    I'd rather hear from the government that it was a top secret operation that went bad. Apologize to the families and the public for ineptitude, have figure heads resign who were in charge, then have closed door hearings to improve process. Instead we get a lame cover story worthy of a 6 year old's imagination.

    So heck yea I want an investigation.

    Maybe they cannot reveal information about anything top secret that is actively going on right now?

    If that is so, then the congressional leaders already know it and the upcoming hearings are a show for political purposes. However, if this is the case the subsequent political show and impact on the electorate is the only measure of accountability possible, because no one will be able to be directly dismissed without explanation.

    An explination might have to wait 60 years if any documents that are classified follow the pattern established in World War Two.

    Oh, ALex Jones is a conspiracy pusher who has a large group of idiots as his following.
    I believe they were suggesting that the arms were going to Syria. Libyan rebels had already been armed. Reacquiring those arms and forwarding them to the battle in Syria via turkey was the allegation.

    I see it hurting more the GOP like it did in November 2012. You don't think the average American, you know those who don't watch Fox, gives a crap about Benghazi?

    THe GOP will probably win seats because they have a motivated dedicated base who shows up for Midterms elections. THe D's have everyone else--and everyone else only votes once every 4 years. I'm not voting in November. Why bother? I'm not that concerned with local elections, and our congressman, Boehner, runs unopposed. My wifeisn't going to vote either, I suspect. Just to give a pair of examples.

    However, there is a chance that this Benghazi overreach crap and the Obamacare successes coupled with RW obstruction in Red States gets out some D votes which would otherwise have stayed home.
