What we have after eight months of investigation, 11 congressional hearings before five committees, 20 staff briefings and 25,000 pages of documents is exactly what we started with: a tragic situation with lessons to be learned, but not a grand conspiracy. It is sad that Rep. Darrell Issa has decided not to conduct a series of hearings to help solve the problems that out diplomats face every day but rather to engage in a partisan, political witch hunt for a conspiracy and cover-up that doesn't exist.

Issa also lead the investigation into the IRS who has come out issuing an apology today. So he was RIGHT on that one. And I believe him to be right on this one as well.

And what did lil Georgie boy when a bunch of religious fanatics started crashing airplanes into buildings. Immediately spring into action, return to Washington and take charge, or sit for 30 minutes listing to some brat reading "My Pet Goat" then get in his plane and haul arse in the opposite direction (like he did during the vietnam war).

Here is the truth about Benghazi:
The ONLY reason Obama allowed the premeditated attack on the Benghazi embassy was to use it as excuse to pass Anti-Blasphemy law in United States and Europe.
The Muslim sympathizer "my Muslim faith" incompetent man-child Community agitator Barrack Benghazi Obama knew more about what was going to happen than he will admit and the Liberal media will protect him tooth and nail.
Liberals had always loved and protected whistle blowers but now they have a radical "Hate America First" Liberal in the White House, so they must attack the Benghazi Whistle blowers. Nothing to see in Benghazi just three American dead. But where was he? Playing golf!!!
See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites.

All of AMERICA should be pissed, since Bush Jr. was the worst and most incompetent President of modern times and was not voted into office by a majority of Americans.

He was the Select-a-Dent, appointed by order of the U.S. Supreme Court. Even Sandra Day O'Connor has doubts about her role in appointing the idiot Resident.

Of course, you are correct.....this is some of the same stuff, we covered before the election....zero progress, yet i can't forget the House republican's glee at cutting funding for items like, Therapeutic Service Dogs for our vets with PTSD....or canceling the expense of the, Meals On Wheels Program, which delivered needed food to disabled military veterans, handicapped and elderly shutins.....Seem's sad, their prioritys.......

Riiiight, because 52% of the US population is welfare "moochers"?

What is the approval ratings for Republicans in Congress, something like 22% more or less? So the one thing that the Republicans have going for them in DC and they are judge by the American people to be such failures that things like this Benghazi "cover up" is considered another time waster.

Hey Dajokerman, have you recognized that when a member of the second largest minortiy population receives a valued promotion/position, within a short period of time he or she is also receiving recognition for some deed of impropriety ? Doesn't happen all the time but enough for front page features. It is almost like, "They got theirs, so I'm going to get mine."
Is it possible that the new power that they suddenly have achieved gives them a feeling of being immune from corruption laws.
Cases in point is the current POTUS that bragged about investigating his opposition and now the IRS acknowledges and appologizes for it's treatment of the TEA party. Numerous lies about Benghazi, etc, etc,.
Simply a condition of not being prepared for the office he currently occupys.

Why are paying less per barrel for oil but the price has not done down. Obama is de-valuing our currency.
When something (money) is “devalued”, don’t you need more of it in order to purchase things? So wouldn’t your crazy conspiracy theory of Obama devaluing the dollar cause gas to be more expensive? Maybe you need a refresher course of basic math.

Oh for real, where can I sign up for that one? I have no problem paying my mortgage but if your paranoid delusions are true I sure would like to have some of your tax dollars subsidize some of my expenses.

The only GOOD thing he has done was authorizing the killing of UBL BUT do you think this will go unanswered? Our enemy is striking back and he is too weak to pull the trigger. Which makes us look WEAK in a time we need to show STRENGHT!!
So, according to you he did a “GOOD” thing by killing Osama bin Laden but he shouldn’t have because the terrorist will retaliate because he is too weak to pull the trigger that was pulled to kill Bin Laden because he needs to show strength that he show by killing Osama bin Laden although he shouldn’t have done the thing that you say was “GOOD” that he did?!?!?!?!?!

WTF are you talking about?

Finally these frauds will be revealed.

This was cover up for Obama to win the election.

Lying to the American public for personal gain.

Treason.

I am glad the good Republicans have sought out the truth.

If not for them we would still not know the truth and Obama would get away with it.
