If you are going to claim that you didn't know that an IGA report started all this dust up about the IRS slow walking conservative apps then you are way behind in what is happening and need to catch up before proceeding.
i know what started it. the right wing media took an already released email and tried to make hay out of it. that and Obamacare is working. and Benghazi is dead in the water. and Hillary is killing it in the polls.

IRS, Sen. Carl Levin, And The Truth Behind Right-Wing Media's Latest Phony Conspiracy Theory

Judicial Watch's Sen. Levin Emails Are Old News

Levin Requested That His Correspondence With IRS Be Part Of Congressional Record. During a September 19, 2012 Senate floor statement on the IRS and 501(c)(4) organizations, Sen. Levin again argued that there has been a "growth of groups that parade as social welfare groups but are obviously organized for politically partisan purposes," but he a did not single out conservative groups. Levin also requested that his correspondence with the IRS be included in the congressional record.[Levin.Senate.gov, 9/19/12]

Senator Carl Levin: Emails To IRS Are "No Secret." As Levin's office told Media Matters, his letters to the IRS are "no secret" and have largely been available to the public on his website since 2012:

Sen. Levin's correspondence with the IRS is no secret - he entered much of it into the Congressional Record, and posted it on his website, in 2012. He listed both liberal and conservative groups appearing to violate the legal prohibition on campaigning by nonprofits. Letters that were publicized this week focused on four groups, two liberal, two conservative - equally divided, contrary to the implication that he sought to single out conservative groups. He believes any group, conservative or liberal, should not abuse its tax-exempt status by using a taxpayer subsidy to buy campaign ads.[Statement from Sen. Levin's office to Media Matters, 5/16/14; Levin.Senate.gov , 9/19/12]

Discussing anything with a bagger is a real lesson in futility, First after 911 I would have attacked the real culprits that actually did the attack which was Bin Ladin and he was located in Afghanistan not Iraq. And we knew where he was. Iraq was the single biggest blunder this nation ever made and it was all based on homade lies. PERIOD.The FACTS show that to be true. So your pretend anger is very poor acting on your part. We have over 4500 men and women dead now for all of those lies, 30,000 injuries and countless PTSS,also a couple trillion dollars and counting. Before you call me a commie I earned my stripes idiot, you are nothing more than a bagger puppet.
And that's exactly where troops were sent following 9/11-to Afghanistan, where we probably would have NOT have had to go to start with, had Saddam not had pilfered oil from and then invaded Kuwait, forcing Kuwait into having to request allied help (see first Gulf War) in pushing the invading insane Hussien ROGUE dictator back into his own FAILED and crumbled statehood of Iraq, thus inflamming the bin laden et al sociopath jihadist terrorist pack(s) and their hatred of anything western further, along with MORE sociopathicness on bin ladens part, fed by more rejection on Kuwaits part, in that nations denial of "aid" from bin_laden in pushing Saddam the Insane back, opting instead for western allied help.

When are you going to ever realize those simple TRUTHS, vacuous surfer-boi head?

(now ..fast fwd to 2014...and "we don't need no stinking KEYSTONE north continental American oil pipeline--we has OPEC!")

Duhmmy.

Yet right-wing media latched onto a midsection of the email chain, from July 2010, to push the conspiracy theory that Washington directed inappropriate targeting of conservative groups.

conspiracy theory. i know in your world that carries a lot of weight, but in the world that most of us live in, not so much.
Yes, the IRS outlining who should be targeted probably means nothing. You need to step away from your partisan sites. Even the MSM isn't dumb enough to repeat this lack of logic by Media Matters.

It is one thing to think Iraq had WNDs to push for inspections, sanctions and regime change.
It is another to use it to go to a war to kill 4000 soldiers. Especially when already in another war

And of course that should put the ongoing argument to bed__but it won't because the source is not a right nutjob site such as Judicial Watch et al.
