Senate Benghazi report blames FBI, CIA but exonerates Obama

The U.S. Senate released a report on Monday that blames the FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies — but not the White House — for the misinformation allegedly contained in talking points that explained the details of the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate diplomatic in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Sept. 11, 2012, Libya attack.

The Democrat-dominated Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee issued a report that said the White House was only responsible for a “minor change” in the White House talking points.

A number of GOP lawmakers questioned whether the presidential staff rewrote the talking points for political reasons, but they were practically silenced by the Democratic leadership in the Senate and by some so-called moderate Republicans.

“Once again, the Obama administration is being let off the hook in another scandal that would have caused a media frenzy in a GOP presidency. Once again, we have evidence of a biased news media coupled with a spineless opposition party,” said former law enforcement and intelligence officer Sid Franes.

I can’t blame the guy for being an arrogant ass..wouldn’t most people if they could get away with a fraction of what zero has pulled off?

I blame the media and his fellow conspirators as much as I do him.

The intelligence report was subject to major changes, for political purposes, but the WH only made a minor change ... oh, I almost missed “Democratic dominated.”

Of course the Democratic Party majority in the Senate would exonerate Maobama. It’s all a set-up. Let’s see what happens in the Congressional investigation.

Yep, that about says it all.

“The committee also blasted the director of national intelligence for stonewalling the panel of lawmakers by holding back a promised timeline of the talking points changes.

“The ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said she had used the talking points to say in television interviews on Sept.16, 2012, that it may have been a protest that got out of hand.”

Both Lieberman and Collins did not exonerate Obama on the source of the Susan Rice lie and slammed the Obama Admin’s “intelligence community” for stonewalling on just who gave what talking points to whom and when, so I don’t think the title of the article is completely accurate on that point.

Of course it is obvious that it is most likely that Axelrod and Jarrett drafted the talking points for Barry, Hilarious and Rice from day one to save his campaign and this is still very much an open issue in the new congress.

It makes sense the culture of death would exonerate the top executioner. It is a signal, from senate rats, to the top executioner to be advised; doing the same again will not force the top executioner into being compromised.

Amen Brother.

Both Houses of our Legislative Bracnh are a joke.

Lacking in courage, patriotism,common sense,and totally too fixed on their own comforts and getting re-elected.

Too many Americans accept their pork and vote them back in.

"Senate Benghazi report blames FBI, CIA but exonerates Obama"

Of course it would exonerate Obama. Obama is responsible for only goodness and success. Evil is caused by Republicans.

I couldn’t do it either - but Obama is a completely different character. He tried all this unbelievable stuff - like saying he was born in Kenya for his publishing company biography - and then running for POTUS and never really having to explain himself. I find the whole thing absolutely unbelievable but it’s easy to see why he is arrogant - and maybe even thinks he is the world’s destiny and savior - he has gotten away with murder. This will go down and the biggest heist EVER.

“A line saying “we know” that individuals associated with al-Qaeda or its affiliates participated in the attacks was changed to say, “There are indications that extremists participated.”

Obama just can’t bring himself to call his bros in AQ terrorists. Says it all in my book.

Wake Up America!!
