The House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, has concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, said Rep. Mike Thompson of St. Helena, the second-ranking Democrat on the committee.

The panel voted Thursday to declassify the report, the result of two years of investigation by the committee. U.S. intelligence agencies will have to approve making the report public.

Thompson said the report “confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down order (to U.S. forces) was given.” …

No one here can legitimately claim that we need to vote Republican so that we can get control of the Senate and the House, and that 80% agreement is better than 100%, blah blah blah. They simply are not capable of running anything.

Vote RINO? We’ve seen their malfeasance in Kentucky and Mississippi—never mind Michigan, where über-RINO Mike Rogers is from.

They value their own second-tier power and perks more than they value this country and its real citizens.

In a word, this country is screwed—and has been for quite a while, now.

I have no ideas for how to fix it………….

——in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, ——

There was never, ever a US Consulate in Benghazi....

That was the first lie told by the adminstration below the mountain of other lies...

wrongdoing is not the same thing as negligence to me.

An ambassador and three brave people were killed but nobody is responsible. The only real take away from the report is that the talking points were flawed.

All is forgiven. Absolutely pathetic.

Agree 100%. Expecting Republicans to make a difference is simply delusional. It matters not if they control anything.

No wrong doing means they didn’t do anything illegal?

confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down order (to U.S. forces) was given.

Which was not the question

The question was WHERE WAS OBAMA since cross border authority is held only by the President and required before assets can be engaged to cross another country's boundaries???

(apologies for yelling, but I am SO pissed!)

Another step on why the Republicans are going to under-perform in November and will be absolutely shocked when patriotic Americans no longer vote for them.

You are right. Republicans are spectators, not players, and are content with their good seats in the grandstands from which they can watch the real action. They make lots of noise but have no intention of participating in the game.
