Not even bothering to look it up, if true- it is tasteless and I don't like it. But it doesn't change the FACT that for political reasons the Obama WH lied about the attack and the motivations behind it in order to continue their fiction that "al-Qaeda is on the run."
United States has just under 300 consulates and embassies around the WORLD.....Could your logic, be less obsolete?

Not political? LOL. Sure.
What happens when the American public really starts to make a stink about just how political all of this is, and all of the fundraising.? Can they just shut it down? LOL Of course not. It will make them look bad politically.
This committee must be FORCED to find SOMETHING, even if they have to make it up - which just goes to show how political it all is all over again.
Republicans are stupid. No exit strategy. Just hatred for the man in the white house.
What happened in Benghazi to the American Embassy and Staff, was an act of terrorism. What happened in Washington, and the explanations offered by the Obama administration after Benghazi, despicable. It's about time you learned the difference.

Center Ring at the Republican Circus

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/09/opinion/cen...
The hottest competition in Washington this week is among House Republicans vying for a seat on the Benghazi kangaroo court, also known as the Select House Committee to Inflate a Tragedy Into a Scandal. Half the House has asked to “serve” on the committee, which is understandable since it’s the perfect opportunity to avoid any real work while waving frantically to right-wing voters stomping their feet in the grandstand.
They won’t pass a serious jobs bill, or raise the minimum wage, or reform immigration, but House Republicans think they can earn their pay for the rest of the year by exposing nonexistent malfeasance on the part of the Obama administration. On Thursday, they voted to create a committee to spend “such sums as may be necessary” to conduct an investigation of the 2012 attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The day before, they voted to hold in contempt Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official whom they would love to blame for the administration’s crackdown on conservative groups, if only they could prove there was a crackdown, which they can’t, because there wasn’t.
Both actions stem from the same impulse: a need to rouse the most fervent anti-Obama wing of the party and keep it angry enough to deliver its donations and votes to Republicans in the November elections. For a while it seemed as if the Affordable Care Act would perform that role, but Republicans ran into a problem when the country began to realize that it was not destroying American civilization but in fact helping millions of people.
Party leaders needed something more reliable, so they went back and revived two dormant scandals from last year, the embers of which were faithfully tended by Republican adjuncts on Fox News and talk radio. Their hope is to show that the administration is corrupt and untrustworthy, and if Hillary Rodham Clinton also gets roughed up in the process, so much the better....
The HOR has done enough. The Senate needs to act. What is Harry afraid of?

No, you ignored the main point. The Bush\QTC elephant in the room. You need to pull back the curtain, like in the Wizard of Oz and see who is pushing buttons and flipping switches at the VA.
The Republicans need to stop their Select Committee on Benghazi and start on on Bush damage.
And STILL missing the point of virtual govt run, single payer disaster. And you really should do something about your Bush-Derangement Syndrome.

Sorry Aggie. You're missing the point. Or, more accurately, dancing around the truth.

The VA is not at all an indicator of what single-payer health care would look like, for dozens of extremely obvious reasons.

You're just arguing to be arguing again.

Well it would certainly be glory for all vets if the VA medical centers were all shut down along with any QTC connections. Then allow all veterans to get their healthcare from local doctors and local medical centers. But still the VA\government must pick up the tab as promised. Too many vets go to VA hospitals because they have no other alternative.
But, don't blame me for Bush's Deranged mind. Blame his mom and dad who should have put infant Bush in a toe-sack and dropped him in a creek.

There is plenty of lying going on in politics, no doubt. Most of it by the current administration. That same narrow minded scope put them in office, and hindering the investigation of Benghazi.

So, regardless of the fact that there is NO evidence of any wrongdoing at all from the previous 59 Republican investigations into Benghazi, and regardless of the fact that there is no evidence of wrongdoing at all from THIS investigation into Benghazi, you're making the following statement..

Glad to see that you're keeping an open mind, and patiently awaiting the results of the clown committee. No foregone conclusions on YOUR part, are there?

This post exposes you for what you are. You HATE democrats and Obama in particular for no good reason, and you're just looking for justifications to validate your view at this point.

In other words, typical Fox-slurping republican. Your brain-washing has been deemed complete and successful.

Excellent link. I hope you don't mind if I post a bit from The New York Times article you've included.

Center Ring at the Republican Circus

Their hope is to show that the administration is corrupt and untrustworthy, and if Hillary Rodham Clinton also gets roughed up in the process, so much the better.

ow Republicans are frothing about a newly released email message showing that the White House wanted Susan Rice, the American ambassador to the United Nations at the time, to go on television in 2012 and make the case that the attack was not a failure of administration policy. The message should have been turned over earlier because all it shows is a routine attempt to spin the news in the most favorable way to the White House. Though it is not the slightest evidence of a cover-up, it has become the foundation for the committee’s existence. Demonstrating the panel’s true purpose, Republican political operatives are already raising money by stoking donor anger on Benghazi.

Yeah - Republicans aren't milking Benghazi for political reasons. Sure.....

Where and to what extent was there dereliction of duty as memos, urgent pleas and mounting evidence of danger were ignored and the U.S. ambassador was allowed to enter a deathtrap?

What happened during the eight hours of the Benghazi attack, at the end of which the last two Americans (of four) were killed by mortar fire? Where was the commander in chief and where was the responsible Cabinet secretary, Hillary Clinton? What did they do?

The White House acts as if these are, alternatively, either state secrets or of no importance.

We now know the White House was pushing the “video made them do it” coverup, lest the blame be placed on administration policy. Who was involved in that decision, obviously designed to protect a president campaigning that al-Qaeda was “on the run”?

What difference does it make? The difference between truth and falsehood. The difference between a brazen stonewall that is exposed and one that succeeds.
