    Yeah, I figured it out. The Republicans on that committee won't have anything better to offer than you do. Just a bunch of lame nonsense about buzzing jets and quick reaction forces, and of course huffing and puffing about how Obama misled the electorate and thereby stole the election with a supposed coverup, one that was "exposed" six weeks before the voting took place.

    Of course you still have Black Panther intimidation. Maybe you can catch 'im by the toe on that one.

    Are Republicans Exploiting Benghazi?

    "Democrats are angered not just by the House GOP's creation of a special committee to probe the 2012 terrorist attacks in Libya that left four Americans dead but by Republican fundraising in connection with the Benghazi probe.

    Raising money in the wake of tragedy certainly isn't new; both parties have engaged in it to greater or lesser degrees.

    But the latest dust-up arrives during a 2014 midterm election year in which both parties are trying to energize their respective voter bases and control of Congress hangs in the balance.

    It also comes with the 2016 presidential race fast approaching, with Republicans doing what they can to dent the Democratic front-runner, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Democrats trying to protect her.

    Republican leaders understand that the idea of Benghazi-linked fundraising is distasteful to many voters.

    For instance, Speaker John Boehner was asked several times at a news conference Thursday about the National Republican Congressional Committee using the probe to raise money. Three times he declined to answer directly, instead opting for: "Our focus is on getting the answers to those families who lost their loved ones, period," or a variation of that.

    When It's All Politics asked an NRCC spokesman if the organization whose job is to increase Republican seats in the House intended to continue using the probe for fundraising, his emailed statement also failed to directly or even indirectly answer the question:



    "The Obama administration has not been honest with the American people with regards to Benghazi, and if Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker the American people will never know the truth. Our goal is to hold Democrats in Congress accountable who vote against creating the select committee on Benghazi and who continue to try to sweep this controversy under the rug."

    Not exactly on point, but even after a follow-up question, that's as far as he would go."

If a militant group armed with heavy weaponry is permitted to attack a diplomatic facility for hours with no host government response -- as was the case in Benghazi -- the attack will cause considerable damage and likely cause fatalities despite the security measures in place." — The Benghazi Report and the Diplomatic Security Funding

    "Although the ambassador was killed, the Benghazi 'consulate' was not a consulate at all but basically a secret CIA operation which included an effort to round up shoulder-launched missiles. In fact, only seven of the 30 Americans evacuated from Benghazi had any connection to the State Department; the rest were affiliated with the CIA.

    So, from the State Department perspective, this was an attack on a CIA operation, perhaps by the very people the CIA was battling, and the ambassador tragically was in the wrong place at the wrong time. But, for obvious reasons, the administration could not publicly admit that Benghazi was mostly a secret CIA effort.

    This basically was a bureaucratic knife fight, pitting the State Department against the CIA. In other words, the final version of the talking points may have been so wan [sic — wanting?] because officials simply deleted everything that upset the two sides. So they were left with nothing. From a bureaucratic perspective, it may have seemed like the best possible solution at the time. From a political perspective, it turned out to be a disaster" — "An alternative explanation for the Benghazi talking points: Bureaucratic knife fight," Washington Post, May 10, 2013
    A post so nice, it should be seen twice.

    Of course; it is politics as usual, especially when they have no fiscally responsible solutions.

    The whitehouse has been anything but up front and transparent on the deaths of 4 Americans. They have stalled, lied, and evaded for too long.
    Now's the time for the truth-so that it doesn't happen again. This is a republic, is it not?

    Not really, its a sign that we are able to get firepower on scene quickly, and will STAY until we get every American.

    It was something-in contrast to Obama's nothing.

    Greased with their blood. And then they left the families and parents of those men hanging in limbo.

    Said as if the democrat party isn't going to take a massive beating in november BECAUSE of its lack of solutions.
    Careful, or you will be mugged by reality.
