Two years ago, Republicans in the House of Representatives commissioned a House Intelligence Committee investigation into the 2012 attack on an American consulate in Benghazi. While failures of security were acknowledged by the administration, the investigation was one of many formed with the intent to prove some conspiracy theories about the incident, including a supposed high-ranking order for the CIA to stand down in the midst of the attack.
But the latest report, released Friday, does little to back up Republicans’ suspicion of negligence, and it finds no intelligence failure on the part of the CIA. Link
Like everyone but the TEA Party and Congressional conservatives already knew, there was NO SCANDAL in Benghazi. It was a tragedy, but nothing illegal, unethical, or otherwise nefarious was done by the Administration. This was a REPUBLICAN commissioned report, and it found that NONE of the ridiculous conservative conspiracy theories were true.
So can they please shut up about it already?
All righty then.
