Skip to comments.New Benghazi Investigation Spooks GOP Leaders
Posted on 05/14/2014 2:35:19 PM PDT by don-o
Last Wednesday, as the House was preparing for its new investigation into the Benghazi attacks, House intelligence committee chairman Mike Rogers gathered Republican members of his committee for a meeting. While the main purpose of the meeting was to discuss surveillance reforms the committee was about to pass, Rogers also warned his colleagues about the upcoming select committee to investigate Benghazi.
He was saying this could be a rabbit hole, one House member told The Daily Beast. He was warning us that we should not let this investigation get into conspiracy theories.
Contrary to the caricature of Republicans, as singularly obsessed for political reasons with Benghazi, the reality is quite different. There is deep unease within the Republican leadership that the select committee, which has yet to announce a schedule of hearings, could backfire, and badly. Investigate and find nothing new, and the committee looks like a bunch of tin-hatted obsessives. Investigate and uncover previously-hidden secrets, and it makes all of the other Republican led panels that dug into Benghazi seem like Keystone Kops.

Too many Pubbies abhor accountability as much as the Dems do.
Interestingly, I was leafing through a dictionary today and just happened to come upon the word, republican.
Republican: see milque-toast.
No problem, Republicans are deep into their “war on women” thing, we knew that. No matter what they do. This is all to discredit Hillary and Susan Rice. Those guys who died, what difference does it make?
With “leaders” like these pinheads...
Get proof that Bammy and H! were running arms to the Al Qaeda in Syria.
Mike Rogers is compromised. He knows a helluva lot more than he’s letting on.
Ridiculous article which also shows how ridiculous are some Republican “leaders”.
Does anyone even write articles about what’s good for America?
That’s what happens when you get a cut from the mob.
There they go again.
Talking themselves into inaction by obsessing over a worst-case scenario and then assuming that the scenario has already happened.
I don’t think the GOP is as spooked about this
investigation as the RAT leadership, they already
know what the is going to find and that this is going to turn ugly, FOR THEM.
We will see every slimy trick in the book from democrats
before this is over.
The leadership are all yellow. Well...except for the orange one.
Okay Eli Lake, you tell me where Obama was. Why didn’t help come? Why was security denied? Why did the admin lie for 2 weeks about the origin of the attack? Who gave Candy Crowley talking points to use for the debate? If this is all “unhinged” Republicans, why do we still not know anything about all of this?
I imagine they fear the left will put fake evidence out there to make us look bad. They must verify everything.
Republicans are useless. More conservatives!
The Democrat conspiracy theory that the attack sprang out of protests over an “anti-Islam” ‘movie’ seen by a dozen people on youtube was never called a conspiracy theory by the Newsweak media.
