That was pretty funny...in parts.

Also does a good job in pointing out how flexible the word "scandal" is in Republican hands.

It's not a problem when a Republican does it.  Morality is only something that Democrats can fail out.

Please proceed, Republicans. There's a scandal here somewhere, really. Keep banging your drum as loud as you can you'll eventually get everyone to believe you.

...and tragically, upon hearing the word "mis-feasance" from Col. North, 2,000 dictionaries also committed mass suicide.

Bwahahahahahaha!

Oliver North still has his fans, but they're all bad people.

As Sen. Inhofe pointed out, Benghazi is worse than the Pentagon Papers scandal, Watergate and Iran-Contra.

No it isn't. The Republican definition of a scandal is, and always has been, "A Democrat does something.".

I can get a good look at a govenment coverup by sticking my head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take a Oliver North's word for it.

2013-05-12 02:27:54 PM
North was considered a hero by conservatives for his role in selling arms to terrorist nations to finance other terrorists Reagan supported. So of course changing the talking points after a week is far worse than that.

And so continues the liberal marginalizing of an obvious coverup, so obvious even the New Yorker called it out.

North wasn't involed in a cover up....they got caught red handed and paid the price.

Cover ups are what democrats do....republicans are stand up people who do their time when they get caught.
Demcrats try to weasel their way out of trouble.

I'm surprised noone has claimed the republicans are racist for trying to make Obama look bad regarding Benghazi.

Are you really that obtuse about the cover-up?  Reagan authorized repeated illegal transfers of weapons between terrorist groups, and Oliver North lied repeatedly about it on the stand.

Jeez, the nerve of some people!

No cover-up?

Following is a statement by the independent counsel, Lawrence E. Walsh, regarding pardons granted today by President [George H. W.] Bush.
President Bush's pardon of Caspar Weinberger and other Iran-contra defendants undermines the principle that no man is above the law. It demonstrates that powerful people with powerful allies can commit serious crimes in high office -- deliberately abusing the public trust without consequence.
Weinberger, who faced four felony charges, deserved to be tried by a jury of citizens. Although it is the President's prerogative to grant pardons, it is every American's right that the criminal justice system be administered fairly, regardless of a person's rank and connections.
The Iran-contra cover-up, which has continued for more than six years, has now been completed with the pardon of Caspar Weinberger. We will make a full report on our findings to Congress and the public describing the details and extent of this cover-up.
Weinberger's early and deliberate decision to conceal and withhold extensive contemporaneous notes of the Iran-contra matter radically altered the official investigations and possibly forestalled timely impeachment proceedings against President Reagan and other officials. Weinberger's notes contain evidence of a conspiracy among the highest-ranking Reagan Administration officials to lie to Congress and the American public. Because the notes were withheld from investigators for years, many of the leads were impossible to follow, key witnesses had purportedly forgotten what was said and done, and statutes of limitation had expired.
Weinberger's concealment of notes is part of a disturbing pattern of deception and obstruction that permeated the highest levels of the Reagan and Bush Administrations. This office was informed only within the past two weeks, on December 11, 1992, that President Bush had failed to produce to investigators his own highly relevant contemporaneous notes, despite repeated requests for such documents. The production of these notes is still ongoing and will lead to appropriate action. In light of President Bush's own misconduct, we are gravely concerned about his decision to pardon others who lied to Congress and obstructed official investigations.


Intredasting.

Papers were not shredded intentionally, no siree.

They were just looking to make confetti and accidentally threw some Iran-Contra documents in the shredder.

It totally wasn't intentional.
