Since we're not doing that, it must be partisan politics and Obama will always be a liar on this matter. Why doesn't the administration just say, "is it possible our security was lax and we need to study all 12 incidents to make security recommendations?"
    Have at it...,...and keep the Benghazi investigation going until the truth comes out.

    The Inconvenient Truth About Benghazi


    Why couldn't the administration tolerate the idea that Benghazi was a planned terrorist event? Because they didn't want this attack dominating the headline with an election coming. It would open the administration to criticism of its intervention in Libya. President Obama had supported overthrowing Muammar Gadhafi and put U.S. force behind the Libyan rebels. Now Libyans were killing our diplomats. Was our policy wrong? More importantly, the administration's efforts against al Qaeda would suddenly come under scrutiny and questioning. The president, after the killing of Osama bin Laden, had taken to suggesting al Qaeda was over. Al Qaeda was done. But if an al Qaeda offshoot in Libya was killing our diplomats, the age of terrorism was not over.

    The Inconvenient Truth About Benghazi - WSJ.com
    That is a fault that gets progressive politicians into trouble. They push a given theme such as: "We got Bin Laden...al queda is dead" and just expect that we will all buy it. If something happens that blows that theory, they cover it up....and say "Let's blame the video". That was not Obama's first example of such tortured judgement. After the jihadist shot up Fort Hood in Texas, Obama rushed out the label of "work place violence" instead of calling it what it was....a terrorist act. He also hesitated as long as he could before accepting that the Boston Marathon bombers were terrorists. And Bill Clinton refused armor support for an op in Somalia that he ordered. He refused to allow the armor support because he wanted to be seen as pulling out of Somalia.

    ...and you think another partisan Circus de Issa is going to lead to "the truth?"...
    No matter who "chairs" it, this will still be another partisan circus, just like Issa's.

    You are only considering it a partisan circus because of Obama's party label. Everyone can see that.

    Only those who are so filled with ideological hatred that they have separated the entire country into "us"... those who hate Obama... and "them"... those who don't hate Obama... can "see that." I personally have no use for either political party, and hold both in equal contempt.

    Nor am I now nor have I ever been an Obama fan, having repeatedly referred to him as unqualified, inexperienced, inept. So your attempts to label me as "them" because I am not so blinded by hatred that I can clearly see the obvious are, appropriately, a Fail for you.

    You may not be a partisan hack, however, considering what you have posted against the Benghazi hearings, it is very hard to see you as anything but ideologically biased and an Obama fan. No objective person would have an objection to continuing the hearings until we get to the bottom of what happened and why the administration attempted to cover it up. I am not a republican or democrat either....and I do not like scandals. However when they occur and the administration stonewalls the investigation, I just want to get to the bottom of it. The sooner the Obama administration stops stonewalling and comes clean, the sooner we can move on and put the scandal behind us. Historically, the more an administration attempts to cover up, the more trouble it gets into. Nixon and Clinton are prime examples. Point is.....until all the questions are answered the Benghazi issue is not going to go away, no matrer how much the administration stonewalls and shouts "Nothing to see here."

    Judging by your screen name, I don't see "the truth finally coming out" as part of the equation you're really interested in solving. Methinks your mind's been made up since 9-12-2012.

    Like it or not....my screen name is an honest expression of my opinion of Obamacare If it were the same bill under Bush, I would be calling it Bush
    CareFail. I don't care which party came up with the so-called ACA. It is a monumental disaster and an unconstitutional piece of trash. In any case, my screen name has nothing to do with Benghazi.

    Of course people are still talking about it.

    Even if this new investigation thingy finds that no malicious intent or even incompetent lack of response occurred, people will still be talking about it decades from now.

    Not as many though.
