The Republican led House committee investigating the Benghazi tragedy for the last two years has found there was:






The hard-right bloggers, pundits, and squash-headed commentators @FAUX NOOZ will now all admit that they participated in a cirque l'ignorance in service to smearing not only then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but the entire Obama Administration. 


When compact balls of ice have a chance of being formed in Hell.

The reports linked to below vindicate the Obama Administration and show us all that the crowd that screamed BENGHAZI! for the last 2 1/2 years was all about lies and political slander and never the truth.

GOPers and Benghazi

Now we await the right wing bloggers and others to admit that they pursued this whole unhappy debacle only for political purposes and to smear Secretary Clinton and President Obama.

Admit it? Never! Rather, they will throw their fellow Republicans under the bus by saying that they are all part of a massive cover up.

The GOP's Ben Gassy said...

Over $14M spent investigating Benghazi (44+ / 0-) that's waste, fraud and abuse. Pay us back Boehner & House repubs!

Trey Gowdy's super secret select committee? I think I've lost count of failed scandals and the money spent investigating them...

Wingnutter from TeaGooperstan said...

What? No scandal? No cover-up? No stand-down order?



Now lets get back to the EBOLA! scandal!

Shaw Kenawe said...

Jerry, I just read that the GOP will now hold SENATE hearings into the BENGHAZI! non-scandal. They won't give up until they find something, ANYTHING, that matches their paranoia, which means they'll be holding hearings until the Democrats take back Congress.

Mr. Gassy,

The Republican agenda seems to be based entirely on sniffing around for scandals. It has nothing to do with governing.


The Ebola "scandal" didn't turn out to be what the T-GOP hoped it would be, did it. Too bad for them, but good for U.S.

Dave Miller said...

Shaw... here is how the logic goes...

The tea party people are convinced there was a coverup and that Obama hung those guys out to dry, on purpose. Not only are they convinced, the "know" it.

Any result that does not validate that view, is in itself, part of the coverup, because what they believe, must be true.

It is a circular reasoning that cannot be refuted with any empirical facts.

Was what happened a tragedy? Yes. Did people die as a result of bad decisions? Probably, most notably a decision not to have extra security at that facility ahead of time.

Conspiracy? No. Evil? No.

Shaw Kenawe said...

The right wingers were aching for a scandal and they glommed onto this tragedy to make it one. In their minds, this is a made-to-order scandal, and no amount of evidence that proves it isn't will shake their belief that it is.

You can't reason with unreasonable people.

The problem is that media outlets like FAUX NOOZ and internet sites repeat that this was a scandal, and people who are too busy or to apathetic to find out the truth will take the propaganda as it's fed to them.

Kindness99 said...

Why this news only confirms the conspiracy nutz are right.

The conspiracy is so deep they got a Republican House Investigative Committee to issue a report clearing the blah Muslim Userper of treason. It's that deep.


Jerry Critter said...

They are going to keep investigating Benghazi until the find the blowjob. That's what they are really looking for.

Rational Nation USA said...

Don't hold your breath Shaw... It's easier to let it go. Safer too.

Yeah Jerry, there must be a trail somewhere.

Titan you're famous! said...

The media and the right wingers will keep pushing this fake scandal because there's nothing else for them to pin on Obummer.

(O)CT(O)PUS said...

Poor Darrell Issa. He's been spinning his wheels so long, the hamster died.

Stupid things Conservatives say said...

This report is pure BULLSHIT! ! I don't believe a word of it.


All a bunch of bullshit ! lies to cover his ass ****

Obama he's a ******* CRIMINAL !

And he needs to go to PRISON and so does that ******* **** Clinton!

KP said...

Shaw, where did you find that doode beating what looks like a dead horse?!

That is hilarious :)

Shaw Kenawe said...

KP, I found it @Charlie Pierce's blog. If you click on the link just above the gif, you'll see it.

Joe "Truth 101" Kelly said...

It doesn't matter that nothing was found. It doesn't matter that nothing was found in the Whitewater investigation.
The only thing that mattered was the kooks we republicans call our base will believe any shit we tell them.
The accusation is all we need to control them. Truth doesn't and has never mattered.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Joe "Truth 101" Kelly: "Truth doesn't and has never mattered."

Yes, and the proof of that statement is the fact that no right wing blogger that pushed this scandal fantasy has posted the finding of the GOP House Committee--THERE WAS NO SCANDAL, NO COVER-UP, NO STAND-DOWN ORDER, ETC.

And the crazier among them don't believe the report issued by their own party.

You can't reason with unreasonable nutcakes like that.

Jerry Critter said...

The investigation justifies the accusation. That is all that is required by the Republican base.

More dumbass comments from dumbass TPers:

"As for the LIE claiming Benghazi was completely debunked. Well, many of us who know the report is FULL OF SHIT and that the House Committee was too stove piped to even properly investigate it have been refuting the full of holes report. But now people who were directly lied to or lied about are coming out of the woodwork and slamming the report so badly that the dancing in the end zones by Democrats will soon turn to more defeat and depression once Trey Gowdy sets them straight in December with the senate report."

YUppers. No matter that the 7 investigations say there was no coverup no scandal, these pigeon brained know-nothings will not rest until their fantasies of what really happened is validated.

Like someone said here. They won't rest until they find a blow job somewhere in this whole Benghazi thibng.

More dumbass comments from dumbass TPers:

There's always going to be an irreducible core of cranks that continue to insist there's some "there" there, just as there are some who still cling to conspiracy theories about 9/11 or the Kennedy assassination. But it will eventually become a fringe idea.

Unfortunately, these days, that doesn't mean all Republican politicians will give up on it.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) doesn't accept the report out of his own party's investigating committee because it doesn't agree with his pre-formed opinion that there was a cover-up. How does a country deal with people like this? They will not accept anything unless it comports with their opinion on everything.

"The Republican Party is delusional to the detriment of the entire country, and they couldn't live in this dutch oven constantly smelling their own stink if the media weren't complicit. The media is complicit in the damage to our country. For profit. Just recently we have heard that granting a stay on deportations was unprecedented and a violation of the constitution when most presidents have done something along those lines. We've heard that a pipeline that will create 35 permanent jobs and ship Canadian oil to the Chinese is a giant job engine and a no brainer for America's energy security and supply. We've pretty much received the definitive word that Benghazi was nothing more than an unfortunate event caused by a bad movie and with support of the media it will stay on the Republican/Fox News set of "scandals" perpetrated by President Obama.

Graham's latest talk show freakout aside, I find it incredibly cynical that the report was released late Friday prior to a holiday week. This is THE BIGGEST of Obama's many scandals, and a major report about it has to be buried because it doesn't feed the paranoid Republican narrative. What hypocrisy...I have no more respect to lose for these craven people."

Shaw Kenawe said...

Anon, the wingnuts will never accept the truth. At this point in our history, they've gone all funny in the head. I just ignore their fuming and fulminating.

George Cumberland Trail said...

Well they can scream and holler all they like it doesn't change the facts that there was no cover-up and Hillary Clinton did nothing wrong.

Obama's had a very good week again. The immigration speech sent the wingers into a frothing tizzie and now this news that everything the wingers claimed about Benghazi was all wrong and all lies. Heh.

Obama owns them. How's that Nov.4 GOP wave working out?
