Same 3 questions conservatives always have:

1 WHY DON'T YOU GIVE ME WHAT I WANT RIGHT NOW?!
2. WHY DO YOU HATE ME?!
3. YOU HATE AMERICA, DON'T YOU?!


But, it's those people who are entitled? Riiiiiiiiiight.

The only scandal around Benghazi is the time and money republicans are wasting "investigating" it.

Actual questions FTFA:

1. Why was security lacking during the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the U.S.?
2. Why weren't military units moving to support consulate personnel?
3. Why were references to "terrorist" and "attacks" edited out of the Obama administration's talking points?
 
2014-05-08 01:57:05 PM  
1) 4 diplomats murdered in a war torn region
2) Clinton/Hillary accept responsibility for the death of thse 4 diplomats
3) GOP: Oh, ya well we're going to prove you were wrong when you said it was related to protests about a video
4) we were wrong when we initially said it was related to the video/protests
5) GOP: well we have E-mail that shows you orginally thought it was related to the video/protests
6)

To be followed by the questions:

4. Why didn't you ignore Congress's refusal to fund the Libyan consulate to pay for more security?
5. Why didn't you have the top secret government teleporter send Captain America to defend the consulate?
6. Why do you think the words "act of terror" imply that the attack was a terrorist act? A follow up, why, mere days after the attack and while still gathering intelligence, did you not put out a 100% accurate account of what happened? Don't you think Americans deserve better?

I love the libtards that like to claim hindsight is 20/20, and we can't expect everyone to do the precise right thing at the price right moment in real-time.

They just love to pretend Obama doesn't have a time machine.

Fooling no one.

They key to understanding Benghazi politically is that it can never  be debunked, because there's no coherent claim being made. We've been doing this for years, and I've never seen a single person actually explain what the alleged claim actually is. It's just a series of really small "gotchas" which aren't in service of any greater accusation. You can't really debunk such a thing, but you can fundraise off it.

Because Fark right-winger are not as insane as other people in other dark places on the Internet.  Those nutjobs actually indeed have very scandalous claims.  Like Obama ordering rescue teams to stand down because he is actually is in league with the attackers on some level or another.

It is a new variant of their old dog whistle.  Politicians don't dare speak to the insanity but they know that some of the people in their base know that this is really about Obama letting these people die because, as a Kenyan born Muslim, his real allegiances lies with the attackers.

When do people start walking out of the hearings and refusing to appear on the grounds that they have already been dragged out to DC to 5 times already. This can't be cheap for the people that are being called to testify, lawyers, travel etc, and most of these people they are calling to testify aren't millionaires.

I was actually referring to Congress itself. I haven't heard any actual Congressman make any real claims about what they think happened.

Maybe in time to have another investigation (or two) before the 2016 elections!

The darker reason here is that the whole GOP strategy is to stall and deflect from actually trying to change the status quo as much as possible.  The GOP string pullers are fat and the whole system is rigged in their favor, and if anything sensible happens in congress then they might have to stop being parasites and work for once.

I think we're down to investigating how press releases are created, and an attempt to prove Obama was in the wrong room when he was told about the attack. Because that would prove...things.

After 20 months, 25000 pages of documentation, untold hours of testimony and briefings and god knows how much money, 5 committee didn't find anything, but a sixth committee surely will.

Somebody should form a Select Committee to investigate THAT.

I've heard it said that what you said is exactly why the Republicans keep coming back to Benghazi or the IRS scandal -- because there's nothing to hold them accountable for. If they were to go after an actual policy issue, like Obamacare, eventually people would ask them what their alternatives are, at which point they'll end up either coming up with something almost identical to the Democrats' plan, something ticky-tacky and totally unsatisfactory, or propose something entirely batshiat crazy. By focusing on scandals, there's nothing they really have to do other than keep on holding hearings. They're hoping on being able to stall until November, when they have a chance of taking the Senate.

No, there was a 9/11 investigation. However, less was spent on it than investigating Clintons beej.  And, congress more or less accepted it and moved on.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9/11_Commission_Report

It wasn't investigated 4 more times, to try to implicate the administration.
