Senate intelligence report takes GOP tirades about Benghazi head-on
The Senate intelligence committee made headlines this week by reporting that the 2012 attack in Benghazi was preventable. But frankly, we knew that. The deeper message of the bipartisan report was that Republicans in Congress wasted a year arguing about what turned out to be mostly phony issues.
The Republican Party’s Benghazi obsession was the weird backdrop for foreign-policy debate through much of last year. Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) used it as a pretext for blocking administration nominations. Rep. Darrell Issa (Calif.) used the issue to impugn the integrity and independence of a review conducted by retired Adm. Mike Mullen and former ambassador Thomas Pickering.
Driving the Republican jihad was a claim, first reported in October 2012 by Fox News, that CIA personnel had wanted to respond more quickly to the Benghazi attack but were ordered to “stand down,” perhaps by political higher-ups. Although this claim was promptly rebutted by CIA officials, it was repeated by Fox News at least 85 times, according to a review by the liberal advocacy group Media Matters. This barrage fueled Republican charges that the Democrats were engaging in a coverup.
The Senate intelligence report addressed this inflammatory charge head-on.“The committee explored claims that there was a ‘stand down’ order given to the security team at the annex. Although some members of the security team expressed frustration that they were unable to respond more quickly to the mission compound, the committee found no evidence of intentional delay or obstruction by the chief of [the CIA] base or any other party.”
The Senate panel also rejected the insinuation, made repeatedly by Republicans, that the Obama administration failed to scramble available military assets that could have defended the Benghazi annex and saved the lives of the four American victims.“There were no U.S. military resources in position to intervene in short order in Benghazi,” the report says flatly.“The committee has reviewed the allegations that U.S. personnel .&#8201;.&#8201;. prevented the mounting of any military relief effort during the attacks, but the Committee has not found any of these allegations to be substantiated.”
These are bipartisan findings, mind you, endorsed by the panel’s Republican members as well as Democrats. GOP members offered some zingers in their additional minority views, but the Democrats rightly credited their colleagues for standing up to the right-wing spin machine:“We worked together on a bipartisan basis to dispel the many factual inaccuracies and conspiracy theories related to the Benghazi attacks.”

Okay, try and stay with me. The bombings in the 1980s were the first attacks against the U.S. by radical Islam. We had not been attacked by jihadists before that time. There were no repeated requests by ambassadors for extra security which were repeatedly denied leading up to these attacks.
And, most importantly....now pay attention....President Reagan did not go out in front of America and the rest of the world and lie about a video for weeks afterwards to win an election.
You might not be able to digest the raw truth and common sense, so chew on it slowly.

Hope she thanks us for the $800,000 gift we gave her. Her husband is so generous with our money - and using our tax paid Air Force One like it's his personal possession.
But what's $800,000 and using Air Force One as a taxi cab? It's only money.
Just glad it wasn't Laura Bush who needed a ride home so she could have some "me" time. Liberals would have gone ballistic. Conservatives wouldn't have been too happy either.
But it wasn't Mrs. George Bush. It was Mrs. Barack Obama. So what's the big deal?
We should all just say, "Happy Birthday, Mrs. President Obama!" She wouldn't feel the need to thank us but we could still say,"You're welcome!" .Just to be polite.

The Ten Commandments are etched in wood in the Supreme Court chambers. Pretty sure we base our moral laws on religion.
Freedom OF religion automatically includes freedom FROM religion.
But where in the Constitution does it say the wishes of the people about social and moral issues, i.e. abortion and gay marriage, should be ignored - even if based on religious bias?
It's not like slavery. Killing life after it's created and undermining the definition of marriage which many believe to be the foundation of any society isn't like enslaving human beings.
Slavery was clearly morally wrong. Abortion and gay marriage to many people is equally morally wrong.
The majority of democrats voted down gay marriage in California and it's my guess the majority didn't do it based solely on a religious bias.
Democrats and especially atheists against abortion don't necessarily have a religious bias in abhorring the legalization of mass killing of the unborn.
It's too simple-minded to think that moral issues are divided strictly along party lines.
Good Luck at finding a house today

you know what's funny, most voter ID laws enacted are aimed at minorities and the poor, but the sad fact of the matter is of the few voter fraud convictions there are, the majority of the guilty are white conservative republicans
maybe that's why they keep screaming about voter fraud, cause they are guilty of it and think everybody else must be doing it too

SPENDING BILL
ABC News’ John Parkinson:“House Passes $1 Trillion Spending Bill” The House voted in bipartisan fashion today to approve a massive spending package to fund the government through the end of the fiscal year, passing the measure by a vote of 359-67 and likely taking the prospect of another government shutdown off the table until at least this fall. Just three House Democrats opposed the vote on the omnibus; 64 Republicans voted against it. LINK

The Hill’s Pete Kasperowicz and Erik Wasson:“House Easily Passes $1T Ominous Spending Bill With 359-67 Vote” The House on Wednesday easily approved a $1 trillion omnibus spending bill that would fund the government for the rest of fiscal 2014 and let Congress avoid the risk of a shutdown until the end of September. Members voted 359-67 to pass the bill, which was opposed by 64 Republicans and three Democrats. The three Democrats who voted “no” were Reps. Raúl Grijalva (Ariz.), Rush Holt (N.J.) and Mike McIntyre (N.C.), a centrist Democrat who is retiring at the end of this Congress. LINK

The New York Times’ Jonathan Weisman:“In Defeat For Tea Party, House Passes $1.1 Trillion Spending Bill” The House voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday, 359 to 67, to approve a $1.1 trillion spending bill for the current fiscal year, shrugging off the angry threats of Tea Party activists and conservative groups whose power has ebbed as Congress has moved toward fiscal cooperation. The legislation, 1,582 pages in length and unveiled only two nights ago, embodies precisely what many House Republicans have railed against since the Tea Party movement began, a huge bill dropped in the cover of darkness and voted on before lawmakers could possibly have read it.

Obamacare is costing us $600 million so the K-Rats can try and sell this lemon. Republicans want declaimers letting people know this advertising is paid for by taxpayers. I agree a disclaimer should be on the propaganda/advertising.

"Another 25 million ObamaCare victims"

It now looks like ObamaCare will hurt twice as many people as it helps — because the law isn’t nearly done with canceling people’s insurance.

The 5 million-plus Americans who’ve seen their health plans canceled thanks to ObamaCare will be joined by millions more this year — because the Affordable Care Act makes their employer-provided policies illegal, as well.
