BENGHAZI! BENGHAZI! BENGHAZI! Part 3,455,900
Here's another report from the House Armed Services Committee, headed by a Republican, which the Benghazi-crazed conservatives will ignore.
That makes a gazillion inquiries that have found no scandal in the Benghazi tragedy, but nevertheless, the yawpers on the right will continue their futile efforts to pin scandal on Hillary Clinton and President Obama.
Happily, their efforts will not produce a scandal no matter how often and how loudly they insist there is one.
All the Gee-Oh-Pee-ers will get from their BENGHAZI! delirium is a sore throat.
"In a new report released on Tuesday, the House Armed Services Committee concludes that there was no way for the U.S. military to have responded in time to the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya to save the four Americans killed that night. In doing so, the report debunks entirely a right-wing myth that says the White House ordered the military not to intervene. For months after the attack that resulted in the death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens, conservative media was awash in reports that on the night of the assault the Obama administration at some point ordered the military not to take action that would have saved lives. This supposed “stand down order” led to a bevy of right-wing conspiracies about why the President and his administration had let the Americans die."
"The Democrats on the panel asked their Republican colleagues if they could finally move on from Bengahzi. “This report, produced by House Armed Services Committee Republicans, should finally bring an end to the politicization of the heinous attacks on brave Americans in Benghazi,” HASC Ranking Member Rep. Adam Smith (D-CA) and Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-MA), the HASC Oversight and Investigations subcommittee’s ranking member, said in a statement. “It is time to move forward, take the real conclusions we have arrived at and establish how to best protect our citizens around the globe. It is our hope that today’s report, which was authored by Republicans, finally brings this attempt to manufactured scandal to an end.”
