Democrat: GOP’s Benghazi committee ‘waste of time’
Associated Press ^ | May 4, 2014 10:51 AM EDT

Posted on 05/04/2014 11:10:50 AM PDT by Olog-hai

A Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee says it makes no sense to participate in the select committee that Republicans want to create to investigate the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California says he’d recommend that Democratic leaders not appoint any Democrats to the committee that Speaker John Boehner is moving to set up. …

If only Republicans in the future would remember to use these same excuses, like “it’s a waste of time”.

I wish nothing but misery on anyone who associates with this anti American, filth - ridden, traitorous organization know as the Democrat Party. Not one of them warrants being spit on if on fire.

Thanks for the insight. It's all clear to me now.

I believe Schiff should meet face to face with the families of the four murdered Americans and try to tell them that, if he survived the meeting he may change his mind.

Democrats are just Bolsheviks in a different time zone. So, no.

So, 60% of the American people want answers on Benghazi and all the demoncrats can do is circle the wagons, apply Alinsky tactics, and ignore the will of the people. It’s like were dealing with children here.

WHERE was our Dictator during the the attack on our Consulate in Benghazi?

WHY did he choose to do nothing and let our people be slaughtered?

WHO is involved in the ongoing conspiracy to silence and intimidate the survivors?

WHAT kind of illegal arms trafficking they were involved in that provoked the attack in the first place?

Then there is the matter of the guy they still have in prison for posting an anti-raghead video on YouTube

This tells me a lot. Think: if there was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to Benghazi, and the Republicans were setting up the select committee, Democrats would be ALL OVER IT with TV cameras, setting up for the campaign commercials. 2014 would be ALL BENGHAZI ALL THE TIME.

The fact that they're running from it, belittling it, impuning anyone for wanting to look into it, and recommending not being involved tells me they KNOW that it was far worse than the public has been yet told.

I'm still waiting for someone to ask which White House peon dreamed up the "anti-raghead video" scenario in the first place...and upon whose request?

This is a serious question. Originally, I heard that Obama and Biden were on the phone with Netanyahu the night of the attack. There are references to that online. I don’t know how credible.

Anyway, I always thought that perhaps the Israelis, or even the CIA had valuable “assets” in that mob that they didn’t want killed or exposed. So, they just let it go and hoped for the best. Sort of like the legend of the bombing of Coventry in WWII.

Has anybody else said anything similar?

Interesting, thanks for the correction.

Didn’t know he was a Coptic Christian either.

He’s on probation now, but interesting that the DOJ grabbed his ass and threw him in the slammer BECAUSE he made an anti-raghead video, then kept him there on some trumped up charge that he violated the terms of his probation

He’s also been sentenced to death in absentia by Egypt

Enough White House lies on Benghazi

By: David Limbaugh
5/2/2014 06:00 AM

The Obama administration has no shred of integrity left concerning the Benghazi scandal. Caught in the act with the “loaded gun,” those in the administration are telling us it is a toy pistol, but no honest observer can possibly believe them anymore.

It took a lawsuit to force the White House to release emails that reveal just how deliberate and fraudulent the plan was to deceive the press and the American public about the cause of the attack on our consulate in Libya.

The incident and a nearby attack a few hours later, in which four Americans were killed, occurred in September 2012, just a few short months before the November presidential election. Obama’s foreign policy credibility was on the line, for he had long boasted that he had al-Qaida on the run, despite his efforts to relax our war on terror into a law enforcement matter (except for his precious drones, of course).

Reports emerged that there had been previous attempted attacks on the consulate and that our people there had asked for heightened security, which the administration callously rejected. Was this sheer indifference or a result of Obama’s concern that enhancing security would signal a failure in his magical policy of appeasing terrorists? Either way, it was disgraceful.

It was obvious at the time but is now undeniable that with cold premeditation, the administration hatched a sinister ploy to blame the attacks on an anti-Islam video that had surfaced on the Internet. There was no evidence that this video had incited the Benghazi attacks or that the attacks were spontaneous but much evidence that they were preplanned by al-Qaida terrorists. But the entire White House spin machine immediately went into overdrive constructing and disseminating this false narrative, even to the point of having federal authorities arrest the hapless creator of the video, whom they nabbed on other charges. This was a horrifying abuse of government power starting at the very top, and it is not the America any of us should love.

Finally, after a year of withholding internal emails, the White House, under legal compulsion, turned them over to Judicial Watch. Included was an email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, dated Sept. 14, 2012. Its subject heading was “RE: PREP CALL with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET,” and the email was sent to about a dozen members of Obama’s inner circle, including press secretary Jay Carney.

The thrust of the message was clear: Protect Obama’s image (and re-election efforts) at all costs; American interests and the American public’s right to know be damned. It contained four bullet points:

The rest of the scandal
