Leading Conservative Has Sobering News For The GOP On Benghazi:‘This Thing Is Done’
http://thinkprogress.org/world/2014/04/10/342...

A leading conservative pundit on Wednesday urged Republicans to end their Benghazi crusade, saying that “the country is now tired of it.”
“Politically speaking the administration has won,” Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News.“They ran out the clock. If we had a select committee from the beginning, really had coherent hearings unlike we’ve had which were disjointed hearings that let all things sort of slip away, we really would have been somewhere. We would have gotten to the bottom of this.”(Numerous executive and legislative branch hearings and investigations, as well as countless media reports, have already “gotten to the bottom” of Benghazi.)
Most of the House Republican caucus — and a group of GOP senators led by Lindsey Graham (SC)— have been calling for the select committee to investigate the Obama administration’s response to the Benghazi attacks, but have been continually rebuffed by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), who has said the the four committees tasked with the investigation are handling it properly.
Indeed, the Republicans and their media allies have been investigating Benghazi for over a year and haven’t turned up any smoking gun to hang around the Obama administration. And because of that, leading House Democrats are asking their GOP colleagues to stand down on Benghazi and focus on more pressing issues.

UPDATE: House Armed Services Committee chairman Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon (R-CA) said on Thursday that he is satisfied with how the military respond to the attack.“I think I’ve pretty well been satisfied that given where the troops were, how quickly the thing all happened and how quickly it dissipated, we probably couldn’t have done more than we did,” McKeon told reporters at a roundtable discussion.“Now, we’ve made changes since then. We’ve got more Marine fast teams that we built up security around the world.”

Daily Kos, Soros' Media Matters, Salon, Huff Post, ThinkPropress , ProgressivePoulist, ForwardProgress, Potius, PoliticusUSA, Politifacts, PoliticusUSA are nothing more than biased, politically motivated propaganda Web sites, manned and funded by biased political organizations and George Soros who set up the sites for the sole purpose of deviously "backing up" the political arguments of those who hold the same views that they do. It's kind of like you have a friend who is in on your lie and you use him to back up your story and don't tell anyone else he is your friend. Don't be fooled by the names Potius, Politifacts, Think Propress, PoliticusUSA as liberals love to use this Left Wingnut blog for their silly propaganda as their so-called fact based nonsense!

Charles Krauthammer is brilliant and very, very wise. I think he's right. It's over, the lying GOP won. Wish he was our president.

BS on the 'correct military response was made' line. How in the devil did they know how long the violence in Benghazi would last? On what basis did they make the decision to 'stand down' when no one knew how much or what was coming or for how long?

Unless, someone did know. There was a rumor at the time of the attack that Obama did know the embassy was going to be attacked, the ambassador was only to be taken hostage and Obama via Morsi was to gain his release just prior to the Nov. election, making him a shoo in. But someone got carried away and four died. I've always been suspicious of the coinciding protest in Eqypt while the attack raged in Benghazi, and then Obama attempting to wire Morsi $575. Million within 15 days after 9/11/12. Goggle 'Kay Granger stops wire.'

And where exactly was Barry that night/morning? We still do not know.

I'll believe that sooner than some of your pundits, reader.

Reader,'sour grapes' is a damn poor analogy to use when you're talking about four dead Americans and an inept, false and botched cover up that started with a lie,'spontaneous demo over a youtube video' and had ended with even more lies piled on top of each other, and those four families never getting the truth, let alone the American people knowing wth happened.

Where was Obama the night of 9/11/12?
Why have we not heard from the survivors?

Do you even lie to yourself about this administration in quiet, dark hours? Step outside the lines and think for yourself for a change.

Reader would belive anything the half breed queer muslim says. If Obama was on camera fisting a male baby on the White House lawn reader would claim the baby asked for it.

I'm not a teabagger. Although I thank you for the compliment. At least they stand for something and are not sheep.
I'm not angry.
Yes, you are reader, and you just proved it further by telling me to look for the Lord. Don't presume to lecture me on the Lord. You attend a 'christian' church that has a pastor who approves of abortion. I was raised by, and am surrounded by, much more devout Christians than you have proven yourself to be.
Why are you getting so upset about me questioning whether we have the truth on Benghazi and the IRS scandal if you're so sure all has been revealed?

Answer my questions.
Why have we not heard from the survivors?
Where was Obama that night? And no, he was NOT on his way to a fundraiser....he made a completely false and misleading statement from the Rose garden the morning of 9/12/12, Hillary by his side, BEFORE he got on AF 1 to Vegas. Any President with any character at all would have cancelled that trip. But not Barry.

Bush lead us into war because we had been attacked on US soil. It was the right thing to do, in my mind. What would you have done? Send them a nasty note? Now I live closer and have friends who were effected by 9/11/01, so maybe I am a little more sensitive to those events than you are. Very close friends of mine lost a son in Tower 1. Last name 'Sesna.'
Btw, Bush never played one round of golf after the war began. He never entered the oval office without a necktie and jacket. Can't say that for Obama, can we?
Maybe if Clinton had done his job instead of sitting on his hands (or Monica's body parts) when our embassy and the USS Cole were attacked we could have been spared those attacks.
On thing for sure, under dem leadership Al Queda has done nothing but grown stronger in number and weapons.

So, U'r mad, right?

At least I have my own mind and use it. Not swallow any propaganda that's thrown at me.

So, why haven't we heard from any of the survivors of Benghazi?

Why did the US not send in assistance as they had no idea how long the attack would last or if it would escalate?

Where was Obama from 5 PM 9/11/12 until 5 AM 9/12/12?

Simple truths will end it all. Now go graze with the other sheep and wait for Hillary's 2016 run.
