    You see it works like this....


    By decreeing it a "partisan witch hunt" in the proud tradition of Jay sleazeball Carney, you automatically rule out the possibility of there being such a thing as truth.

    One, only a partisan hack would use the term.

    Two, only a propagandist would try to sway others with a false "poll"

    Three, the matter is "settled", some juiced up celebrants wanting to express their love and admiration for their brother Barrack "the liberator" Obama by creating a fireworks display with some RPG's, missile launchers, AK-47's and heavy assault weaponry that happened to be lying there.

    According to the latest spin, there were "13 Benghazi's under Bush" and so the GOP is being a hypocrite as well.

    And we all know nothing but the truth comes out of the Obama, "if you like your plan", "mine will be the most open and accountable administration in history", White House.

    I don't know for sure.

    But I'd say that an investigation is necessary - how they go about it will determine how much partisanship is involved.

    For example if they find nothing worthy of mention yet try to spin it so it harms the Dems, that'd be partisanship.

    I'm nobody's "good little brainless drone", and if you come at me with that crap again I'll be reporting it. I have no use for either the republican or democratic parties; they are both corrupt, partisan-drivel political machines that only care about lining their own pockets and gaining personal power.

    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.

    It is the Dumbocrats that are being the partisan jerks.
    Yeah, sure. We can all see that the republicans are pure as the driven snow, but the "Dumbocrats" are the partisan ones. Whatever, dude.

    In regards to the Benghazi coordinated and sustained AQ terrorist attack on 9/11, the fact of the matter is that Obama administration repeatedly lied to congress and the American people about what happened. And it is imperative that at the very least congress knows the truth. And why we the people and congress were lied to in the first place. It is unacceptable for the executive branch to keep lying to the legislative branch. It borders on treason.

    There is nothing partisan whatsoever about congress wanting to get to the bottom of the matter.

    The only partisanship is coming from the Democrats. If the Democrats in congress actually gave a **** about US national security they would be just as pissed off as the Republicans about being lied to repeatedly by the Obama administration regarding a national security matter. The only reason they are not is because of their partisanship. Partisanship is the one and only reason that congressional Democrats are giving the Obama administration a free pass on this shocking and horrendous scandal.

    It is the Dumbocrats that are being the partisan jerks.
    If the GOP wasn't pushing kangaroo hearing for their base, they would have allowed a 6-6 bipartisan committee instead of one that is 7-5 GOP. Go sell that BS to the base. The rest of us aren't buying.

    Then why are you practically word for word repeating the Democratic party mantra in this thread? You even used the phrase "witch hunt", which is the EXACT phrase that the ultra-partisan Democrats like Van Hollen have been using in their attempts to distract attention away from obvious incompetence. How do you explain that?! You use the EXACT phrase that the mindless Democrat drones are supposed to repeat over and over and over. Why are you doing that?

    You are so ****ing wrong that it is astounding. You are repeating that droning partisan Democrat mantra again. The fact of the matter is that the jungle boy administration has been so non-transparent that we still do not know who ordered Susan Rice to lie to Congress and the American people regarding the 9/11 attack in Benghazi. And it is Congress' duty to get to the bottom of that matter. It doesn't matter how many damn hearings it takes. If the jungle boy administration won't simply fess up, congress must keep prying and issuing more and more subpoenas. They have no other choice. The non-mindless drone demographic of American people will be rightfully livid if congress doesn't get to the bottom of this matter. Us non-partisans are getting impatient, while Democrat partisans wish to sweep it all under the rug and make it go away by continuing to repeat the mindless droning "witch hunt" mantra.

    Repeat it some more DiAnna. Chris Van Hollen wants you to plug your ears, close your mind and repeat these words "witch hunt, witch hunt, witch hunt, witch hunt, witch hunt, witch hunt, witch hunt...

    Congress also needs to find out why Hillary Clinton's State department sent Ambassador Stevens' team to Benghazi with inadequate security and kept refusing to provide more security even though they kept practically begging for more security. That consulate had been attacked with huge bombs several times just prior to the 9/11 attack. After all these hearings, because of the monkey-boy administration's stonewalling and non-transparency congress still hasn't got to the bottom of that matter either. They have no other reasonable and responsible choice than to keep digging. That is their duty. And it is a tough time-consuming task only because of Democrat partisans who want lick Hillary's anal sphincter squeaky clean. And you are helping them by repeating the droning "witch hunt" mantra that they want you and others to keep repeating over and over and over again like mindless drones.

    Your ridiculous sarcasm aside, the Dumbocrats' agenda regarding the Benghazi scandal is to get mindless drones to keep repeating "witch hunt, witch hunt, witch hunt, witch hunt, witch hunt, blah, blah blaw....

    Witch hunt my ass.

    I can appreciate those like yourself wanting to learn all the truth, however...

    There have been investigations into Benghazi, conducted by the senate and the military. Also, the NY Times launched a major investigation into the attacks and there finding were reported months later. All of them found that there was no cover up, that spontaneous demonstrations caused by a YouTube video played a role, and that al Qaeda was probably not at all leading some kind of long planned for attack. Here is an excerpt from the NY Times about the senate report:

    On the contentious issue of the role of Al Qaeda or other international terrorist organizations in the attack on the diplomatic mission, the Senate committee’s report found that individuals “affiliated with” many such groups had participated in the attack but that none of them appeared to have planned or led the assault.

    The report found that among the many terrorist groups with which individual attackers had some affiliation were Ansar al-Shariah, Al Qaeda’s North African affiliate; Al Qaeda’s Yemen-based affiliate; and an Egyptian network led by Muhammad Jamal. But the report said, “Intelligence suggests that the attack was not a highly coordinated plot, but was opportunistic.”

    “It remains unclear if any group or person exercised overall command and control of the attacks or whether extremist group leaders directed their members to participate,” the report said. “Some intelligence suggests the attacks were likely put together in short order, following that day’s violent protests in Cairo against an inflammatory video.”
    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/16/wo...eventable.html

    Perhaps there was no major protest in Benghazi immediately before the attack, however the CIA believed there was when Susan Rice went to talk about the attacks (not under any oath mind you) on the infamous sunday talk shows. And al Jazeera, the NY Times, and the CIA deputy director all attributed anger over the video to the attacks. There were protests and attacks at the US Embassy in Cairo as well, caused by the video.

    If the Republicans wanted to call out the President and Secretary of State for their incompetence, that would be Ok. Normal partisan banter that is going to follow any event. I get that, fair game.

    But to compare this to Watergate (as dozens (all?) of prominent conservatives have done) is non-sensical and stupid. Just like the comparisons between Solyndra and Watergate were stupid. And the comparisons between Fast and Furious and Watergate were stupid. And the IRS/Lois Lerner comparisons to Watergate are stupid. And the EPA enforcing EPA standards scandal being compared to Watergate is stupid. Just like comparing the individual mandate to Hitler/Stalin/Mao is stupid.

    And to use these 4 dead Americans as a fundraising tool is disturbing, and I give props to Rep Trey Gowdey who has called for this to stop.

    Good luck taking on Hillary boys. She is going to skull**** these clowns the second they go hyper-partisan on this. I will be tuned in daily to watch the beatdown. Anyone here remember Ken Starr? I almost feel like Obama is a matador, urging the tea party on with a red cape of emails being released, while Hill stands behind him with the knife firmly in her hand.

    Re: GOP Benghazi hearings a partisan disgrace?

    What is the charge here really? The President tried to reassure the nation that everything would be OK following an attack on American diplomats?

    Cause he's supposed to go "OMFG FREAK THE **** OUT PEOPLE These MUSLIMS IS TURRISTS COMING For all of US!!!1!!11 Sharia law! SHARIA LAW MOTHER****ERS ITS COMING RIGHT FOR US!!!1!11!!!"


    What we really need is a committee to find the damn birth certificate. When you have a muslim terrorist kenyan in the white house of course al Qaeda is going to feel right at home.

    No. Crafting talking points is an age-old method of politics. Obama did not invent talking points.
