Skip to comments.Republicans seek blame on Benghazi rather than solutions

Remember the scandal of the 16 words? If you do, youve probably been inside the Beltway too long, literally or figuratively.
Most of what Wilson said was later proved to be grossly exaggerated, or simply false. But that didnt stop Democrats and partisan media from devoting years to conspiracy-spinning and attempts to pin political and criminal responsibility on Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney or Karl Rove.
A decade later, we have the rights answer to Joe Wilson: Benghazi.
The common thread here is not just the climate of intense partisanship in which media and politicians from the left dismiss what the right insists is a scandal of historic proportions or vice-versa. It is the diversion of what should be serious, bipartisan discussion about government failings.
To be fair, the House Republican investigation of Benghazi also addresses the more substantive issues of the State Departments failure to adequately secure its Benghazi facilities and Obamas lack of a credible national security posture in the region.

After all this time what difference can it possibly make?
Interesting. In this case, finding where to assess blame will also correct the situation when appropriate Constitutional remedies are applied.
How telling that the ComPost believes they are mutually exclusive.
Blow it out your smelly Obama, WaPo.
No one believes your first-grade public school bull-Obama anymore.
Maybe the WaPo can remind us how many people died during Watergate.
We ALL know the solution. But how do we accomplish it when the rats are so experienced at stealing elections?
Clinton, (Bill), laid the ground work for this type of thing. Misdirection, conflicting, confusing accounts, serve to confuse and exhaust the public’s attention.
Here’s a solution - impeach the s.o.b.
Obama was re-elected on a completely false pretense, that he won the WOT and it was over..remaining Muslims loved us..the rest dead or locked up... and Libya welcomed us as liberators.
There is NO solution to that BUT blame.
Did WashPost worry about blaming exactly eight years ago in 2005?
Blaming Busg was so righteous for the newbie Preezy, now assigning blame is passe...
Well Jack, the solution is to remove the people that caused the problem. See how nicely blame works?
The solution is Impeachment for Obama and a through discrediting for Hillary.
There can be no solution without finding out what happened and who caused it.
What solutions are available to republicans so long as the Obama democrats control the state and defense departments? All republicans can do is point out the crimes and demand prosecution.
Blame is good!
Fault is better!
Hey, buddy boy Compost Cr*pper, before you can pass sentence, first you have to figure out who’s guilty.
Elementary justice and rational thought.
The solution is to be developed from universal recognition of the problem.
The solution is to destroy the credibility of the DNC propaganda machine known as the Main Stream Media and to destroy the existing Regime and kick them out of power.
The MSM will be recognized as not only a major part of the problem but as American enemies with no present equal.
WaPo only seeks blame most of the time... when it's blaming the bitter bible/gun clingers.
“Republicans seek blame on Benghazi rather than solutions”
And by writing this, the author has in effect blamed Republicans. Neat little trick isn’t it?
And the press made no effort to expose his lies at the time because they wanted to do damage to the Bush Admin. Now that the election's over the author cam admit it but where was the reporter back then?
” In this case, finding where to assess blame will also correct the situation when appropriate Constitutional remedies are applied.”
Exactly what I was thinking. How can you come up with solutions when you don’t know what went wrong?
No. The SOLUTION is OBVIOUS - IMPEACH the Kenyan Kenysian and change the administration - PROBLEM SOLVED.
The sorry, same old PC crap of everybody is a victim, so let us make sure that this crime never happens again is pervasive in the Zombie Obamanation Administration and the Liberal Agenda Media.
Unfortunately, the standard RINO mantra is as follows: “The relevant oversight committees in the House and the Senate need to flush out the truth of the various matters that catch public attention, and to recommend legislative reforms to bring this outlaw Obama Administration to heel.
These are hardened criminals! They will NEVER be brought to heel!
Passing a new Law is meaningless to hardened criminals in Government!
The Obamanation Administration is filled with hardened criminals who have have NO respect for the US Constitution or ANY of the laws derived from it.
Hard jail time is the ONLY punishment that will be an effective partial solution to partially protecting us from future crimes committed by those dedicated public servants who are paid by taxpayers to govern us.
Are Republicans seeking blame or are Republicans seeking the truth that Democrats are trying to obfuscate?
hmmm- karma- democrats sought blame on Valerie jarret, on Swenator stevens, on kastrina, on on on on on opn on etc- Typical bullies- they attack the republicans mercileslly, but when republicans fight back, the dems whine like little sissies about beign picked on-
As Dick morris said “This is the whiniest administration i’ve ever encoutnered’
The Wash Compost is one of the most complicit MSM organizations in the cover up of Benghazi. There has been almost no reporting on it.
The solution is to replace a corrupt and irresponsible president. And unfortunatly, the person we chose to nominate to battle the corrupt and irresponsible president cowered in a corner for a month when he was criticized for criticizing the president.
So the solution is to not nominate such a man again. Twice in eight years is enough.
The only possible “solution” would be resurrecting four dead men and returning them to their loved ones.
No, they seek the SOLUTION by removing the one who was to BLAME.
Apparently that is too deep for pea brain's understanding.
Getting Obama (piss be upon him) and his entire posse out of office IS a solution.
and, I’ll bet the author would be goign balisitic if a repuiblican said about hte sandy hook deaths “Well, ya know, death is just a part of life’ and ‘The left are just seekign blame in the shooting rather than real solutions
No longer in the lexicon because light-reflectivity (see 0bama, Holder), plumbing (Hillary, her minionettes) and Communism (the whole lot of them,) trump American interests and the law.
You can’t stop the President from giving orders.
There’s no way to fix this.
“Blame” is equal to “Solution”
1. Find the people who broke trust and Blame them -
2. Excuse them from public trust - that’s the Solution.
Bullcrap. The solution is to act like you know what you are doing, what your job entails, your responsibilities and the resources available to you to earn your six figure salary that we pay you. And then, should you screw up, get in front of it instead of lying like a 4th grader.
Washington Post seeks to cover for administration...........that was easy.
So what if they are? Where is it written that Democrats may engage in witch hunts to destroy their political enemies but Republicans cannot?
What goes around comes around. After what the Dems. did to Bush, does any sane person expect us to just laugh this off?
There is blood in the water, lots of it and we have the opportunity to destroy or severely damage not one, but two very dangerous politicians before another election. The Republicans would be fools to play nice now.
We have a responsibility to support and protect those that are employed in oversea or foreign positions, to attempt to trivialize this whole tragic attack/murder( in truth) ... causing the death of several Americans. It is shameful and those responsible deserve to be removed and censored. None of this transfer of guilt onto others.
God help us, Forgive our sins, and lead us to restoring our values and faith, returning to Thee and Thy Word, in Jesus name, amen.
I’m sure the old dog Republicans are just waiting for just a little more pressure from the MSM so as they can find a good reason to fold like a cheap suit.
I think Obama is President-in-Name-Only. He never takes responsibility for what he (or his appointed group President) does.
The only way to solve the “problems of Benghazi” is find out which group of incompetentnt and unethical people are responsible for malfeasance and remove them from authority positions where they can continue to do further damage.
This fundamentally requires placing of blame on the people responsible.
Unfortunately, the blame resides at the highest levels of government , and the WaPo wants to protect those people who include people with last names like Obama and Clinton
” - - - Theres no way to fix this. - - - “
But, but, Benghazi Coward B. Hussein Obama just now said at his presser that concerning the IRS Punitive Taxing Scandal, and the Benghazi Massacre Cover Up Scandal, that he would do the following:
” - - - fix the system and make sure that it never happens again. - - - “
Why, this punishment bypass could be used for all crimes!
No more jail time for bank robbers, gang and terrorist shooters and bombers, violations of the US Constitution, etc, etc!
Just make sure to FIX THE SYSTEM BY PASSING LAWS SO NOBODY GETS PUNISHED, AND THUS THE CRIME WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!
This will truly be a Political Sideshow Cornerstone for The Obamanation!
Puzzle for the day: If Zipper Boy Clinton claims that it all depends on what ones definition of “is” is, then can our sorry RINOs document that Benghazi Massacre Mastermind B. Hussein Obama assertion that there is no “there” there ?
Would someone in this regime tell me why Stevens was in Benghazi in the first place?
Unfortunately, I know the answers. And imho, those answers would show this regime committed treason.
Blame? It’s about JUSTICE for Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods!
What the Left is trying to prevent is the idea that "blame" leads to dismissal.
Why would anyone in their right mind keep a person in charge whose actions led to such disastrous results? The answer is they wouldn't, which is why the Left is trying to shame Republicans into staying away from the idea.
And they feel pretty confident in their ability to use shame as a weapon against Republicans.
