WRONG STUPID! Darryl Issa and his witch hunt have already gotten all of the information available. This is just another example of the GOP wasting time and taxpayer dollars.
They've gotten information only from those who were willing to cooperate. The entire Obama administration including the State Department and the IRS are stonewalling.

There's a reason for stonewalling. Guilt.

The Benghazi survivors have been mysteriously silent, emails and documentation surrounding Benghazi have not been forthcoming and the top echelon in the IRS have been anything but cooperative and truthful.

Brings back memories of Nixon's Watergate.

“A Libyan ship carrying the largest consignment of weapons for Syria…has docked in Turkey,” said The Times in an article published on Friday.

The article’s writer, Sheera Frenkel, said most of the Libyan ship’s cargo is making its way to the armed groups inside Syria.

Quoting a member of the ‘Free Army’, who called himself Abu Mohammad, the article said the over 400 ton cargo included “SAM-7 surface-to-air anti-craft missiles and rocket-propelled grenades.”

Abu Mohammad, who told The Times that he “helped to move the shipment from warehouses to the border” said “this is the largest single delivery of assistance” the gunmen have so far received.

The article said the Libyan ship, which is called (victory), is berthed at the Turkish port of Iskenderun and had been given “papers stamped by the port authority by the ship’s captain, Omar Mousaeeb.”

The article pointed out that Mousaeeb is “a Libyan from Benghazi and the head of an organization called the Libyan National Council for Relief and Support,” which is delivering supplies to the armed groups in Syria.

Darrell Issa (Almost) Successfully Trolls Democrats for Not Caring About Benghazi Victims

Notice how Issa softened the accusation in the second tweet—from all "Oversight Dems" to all but two. Didn't matter—the story rocketed around conservative media that, as Fox News put it, Democrats were "spitting on the graves" of Benghazi victims by not sitting for the parents' testimonies.

Just how cheap is this story? Well: There are 24 Republicans and 17 Democrats on the committee. Democrats sit on the left, from the witness's perspective; Republicans sit on the right. Here's a screenshot from the moment Gowdy started speaking to Woods and Smith.

There don't seem to be 24 Republicans sitting down for this; there seem to be six of 'em. So does Rep. Patrick McHenry not care about Benghazi victims? Does Rep. Thomas Massie not care about Benghazi victims? Does Rep. Doc Hastings not care about Benghazi victims?

Sorry pea brain, try again, Freddie and Fannie don't make home loans but thanks for playing. There's a thought, learn the true function of an organization before uttering an opinion.

While Persecuting Everyone Else, the Religious Right Cries Persecution

It is interesting that at the same time House Republicans are supporting a “Marriage and Religious Freedom Act” that would allow them to persecute same-sex couples on the basis of religion, Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber turns truth on its head when he claims that the Obama administration holds a “pagan worldview” and that that the administration is discriminating against Christians – particularly those same Evangelicals who are backing legislation that would persecute everyone who does not share those Evangelical religious beliefs.

Acceding to Barber, the Obama administration is the “modern-day equivalent” of ancient Rome, where each citizen is made to worship Caesar with progressivism.

Is there perhaps just a little bit of hypocrisy involved here?

So-called Christians like Barber are busily trying even now to coerce worship of Jesus by legislating his beliefs in violation of the U.S. Constitution. While crying persecution and defending freedom of religion, these conservatives are denying freedom of religion to millions of Americans, demanding that their own beliefs be legislated into law and the rest of us forced to go along with them, giving up our own freedom to have different beliefs of our own.

This is like Republicans saying liberals are both Nazis and Communists, or Communists and Islamists. It’s nonsensical and seemingly meaningful only to a Republican mind.

But without lies and distortion and hypocrisy and invented history, what would the Religious Right have?

Not much at all.

Ironic that segments of al Qaeda are infiltrating Obama's beloved Kenya when he tried to convince you he personally has terrorism on the run.

And sad that you believed him.

Fox Host Desperately Tries To Get GOP Congressman To Label Benghazi A "Cover Up"

Fox News' Gregg Jarrett repeatedly pressed Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-PA) to declare that the Obama administration has been engaged in a "cover up" of the September 2012 attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

On the September 21 edition of America's News Headquarters, co-host Jarrett demanded to know why a reluctant Meehan would not describe the administration's response to Benghazi as a "cover up," asking the congressman several times why he wouldn't use the phrase. Watch:

During his interview of Meehan, Jarrett continued his trend of pushing a number of debunked falsehoods about Benghazi, including falsely claiming that President Obama was sleeping the night of the attacks and that no rescue effort was sent to Benghazi. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has stated that Obama was "well-informed" during the attack, and a photo of Obama meeting in the Oval Office with his National Security advisors the night of the attacks has been available on the White House Flickr page since October 2012. Furthermore, as experts have repeatedly made clear, help was sent to Benghazi, and former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has called out those who claimed more could have been done to rescue those in Benghazi for having a "cartoonish impression of the military."

Jarrett's desperate attempt to get Rep. Meehan to use the label is not the first time Fox News has suggested there is a Benghazi "cover up," and continues the network's repeated creation and promotion of lies, smears, and conspiracies related to the attacks.
