House Republicans have concluded that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was responsible for cutting security at the consulate in Benghazi ahead of last years attack there, and that the administration lied about why it downplayed terrorism as the cause of the assault.
A new report the result of months of investigation by five different House committees says there was plenty of intelligence that presaged the attack, but the State Department and President Obama failed to heed the warnings or give the Defense Department the authority to respond to such an attack.
The report exonerates the Pentagon itself, saying the military did what it could to respond once the attack began, but was hindered on account of U.S. military forces not being properly postured beforehand.
In the most damning finding, House Republicans said Mr. Obama and his team lied about the attacks afterward, first by blaming mob violence spawned by an anti-Muslim video, and then wrongly saying it had misled the public because it was trying to protect an FBI investigation.

Yeah, yeah — we know...
But what does it matter? Can we elect her President now?
Somebody needs to lose a job over this....
Plus, we need to remember this for 2014 and 2016.
A Monica euphemism.
Clinton lied, people died.
Sure they can and just may, this will make little difference if any.
I will hold my breath waiting for 2 dozen House Republicans to demand face time on the major networks regarding this.
Hillary! employing the time proven 'the best defense is a good offense' strategy.
Corrupt old goat.
What is it with the Clinton’s & blowing?
At one traitor needs to be arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced for this.
Hillary was used and she knew it. I'd be embarrassed.
What does it matter now.
Hillary....No more political caqreer for you.
Obama is going to get rid of all the chicks right quick!!
And it only took 7 months!
8-hour attack with a major US airbase CLOSER to the scene than Tripoli —but NOTHING.
How emboldening would that be?
Emboldening enough to permit for a highly public attack on a major US city?
Barky has his eye on that life preserver his Secretary of State is wearing.
Thanks, potlatch. That’s excellent!
Around her middle you mean? Lol, I’m a ‘woman’ and sometimes miss ‘nuance’.....
Well it would have been much sooner, but I'm sure that the sequestration is to blame.
