That report means nothing, they only completed seven investigations when it was released. The Repugs need to do at least a dozen investigations before they realize that they are wrong.

The rightwing idiots fell for the Benghazi Hoax, they will fall for the rightwing media explanation. Rove & Co. aren't going to give up that easily. They have no morals, no conscious.

left Republicans in the same position they have been in for two years: with little evidence to support

Since when did evidence matter to them?

Leaders lead....Obama went to Vegas....

...while Americans died.

He knows he dropped the ball.....and now waits until after the election to allow any sense of truth to come out.

Those of you who voted him in...bear this as well.

Sorry Greg, but Cragman gets a pass? For a good laugh go back and see what Cragman had to say about it all.

A pass? OMG the guy should go eat a crow or two, not get any pass on anything

What's Obama hiding about Benghazi? How about the Republicans refused to fund upgrading security for embassies before it went down!

On August 1, 2014 the House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi,[291] and that news briefing given by the administration reflected the conflicting intelligence assessments in the days immediately following the crisis.

That's an inconvenient fact, Mark. Don't expect the Republican-controlled committee's latest politically motivated "investigation" to dwell on it.

The new report is devastating to the hoaxster's. Trust that the rightwing will still soldier on with this nonsense, hoping to put Hillary in a bad light. Won't work now.

HEY RIGHT WINGERS...


Where is your outrage over a recent war started by a republican administration...you know...the guys you voted for TWICE...

that was started under FALSE PRETENSES, gross INCOMPETENCE, and outright LIES...

and that killed OVER 1000 TIMES MORE AMERICANS than the four killed in Benghazi?

If you are not seething in anger over that war...

And if you are not DEMANDING CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATIONS into the incompetence and outright lies leading to that debacle...


Then SHUT THE F*#K UP, you miserable HYPOCRITES!

A 2-year hoax, up in smoke.
WASHINGTON — A report released late Friday about the fatal 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, left Republicans in the same position they have been in for two years: with little evidence to support their most damning critiques of how the Obama administration, and then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, responded to the attacks.

Similar to five other government reports, the one released by the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said that the administration had not intentionally misled the public about what occurred during the attacks in talking points it created for officials to use in television appearances that turned out to be inaccurate.

It also said that no order was given by the military to “stand down” in responding to try to save the four Americans killed in the attacks, a claim that Republicans have made based on the account of a member of the security team in Benghazi that day.

Problem is, the damage is done. This is Republican Politics 101- instill doubt and fear about anything...be persistent about it, as this will eventually become 'fact' in the simpleminded masses. No amount of facts or reality will then change the mind of the indoctrinated.

For hardcore RepugNutz, this really isn't relevant, because they are going to remain entrenched in their wingnuttery no matter how ridiculous their chosen 'leadership' (witness: Shrub, Rmoney).

Where it matters is with the precious few amongst the electorate who will & can sway one direction or the other. Fact revelations like this are like arriving to the party two weeks after it's over. It's over.

True, but with the new "investigation" (Gowdy) coming, this report will loom large.
You're right, however, that the rightwing flock will mostly stick with the hoax scenario. Facts don't matter much to this gang.
Can't peel off the bumper stickers.

Apogee, thank you for standing so clearly on the issue of what party pushed so hard for our last two unjustified wars and manufactured evidence to justify it. It does not honor the military to ask them to fight for causes that do not enhance our security. And, we do further the dishonor by wearing pins and making gestures while, at the same time, refusing fund the needs of vets or to truly honor their service by supporting them to be completely reabsorbed into civilian society.

Makes one wonder why we were ever enmeshed in Afghanistan or Iraq when we could have addressed the terrorists involved in 9/11 through special ops supported from an aircraft carrier, taken the gloves off, gotten it done, and called it a day. We could never fix either country - the populace there utimately has to choose differently. All kinds of empires have tried to "fix" Afghanistan beginning with Alexander and all of them have failed, often as those empires went into decline as a result.

Oh, yeah, if you want to know why things happen, you have to follow the money. How much did Haliburton profit our involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq? And who was advocating for Halliburton? What military contractors were chomping at the bit and what oil companies expected to get the contracts to rebuild the oil industry in Iraq?

Makes the Republican use of the Benghazi tragedy sound like the Great Oz demanding to "pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!

Just keepin' it real, Mark.

That report will not make Cheef, or TGT, or Rong, or any number of hardcore braindamaged Repugnutz reconsider their position on BBBEEEENNNGGGHHHAAAZZZIIII!.....they will simply brush it aside, and find the next thing to hate on.

Keep in mind that in less time than what has elapsed since Obama began the coverup of what happened in Benghazi, President Bush was bringing down the wrath of our armed forces in Afghanistan on the Taliban heads.....half a world away.

You guys are unbelievable.....we get attacked on 9-11-01 and our president takes the fight to the enemy.
We get attacked on 9-11-12 and our president ignores cries for help from SEALS...and goes to Vegas.
End of story.

healyje, it's only that the ENTIRE rest of the media is so pro Obama liberal, and know that the TRUTH will hurt their boy....that's why the truth is not being sought.
FOX is willing to tell the truth...wise up.
Fox is telling the truth about the liberal's "boy". Shameful.

Wonder how he'd feel if it was his daughter over there fighting?

I second the motion...

It boggles my mind that people who appear to be intelligent, often quite intelligent, will watch Fox News and not realize it is "infotainment" and not impartial reporting. MSNBC likes to spin their facts, but at least they start with facts. The Fox News crew just figures that saying made up sh#t over and over again very loudly and abnoxiously makes it true.
