    Only if this report was written with the blood of the dead Americans could it be more insulting to their memory, their families and to the intelligence of the American public​


    The wretched absurdity of the Benghazi report



    By: Doug Hagmann
    December 19, 2012

    Under the cover of the Newtown school shooting, an “independent” five member investigative panel quietly released an unclassified, 39-page report Tuesday night, detailing their findings of the attack that led to the murder of four Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The report cites five main reasons for the loss of life, all primarily related to inadequate security for U.S. personnel. However, the independent panel found that no “U.S. Government employee engaged in misconduct or willfully ignored his or her responsibilities, and, therefore did not find reasonable cause to believe that an individual breached his or her duty so as to be the subject of a recommendation for disciplinary action.” Stated another way, no one is to blame nor will be held accountable for the murders of Americans Sean Smith, Glen Dougherty, Tyrone Woods, and Ambassador Chris Stevens., so just continue with your business.

    The report was released in advance of closed door congressional testimony scheduled for today by two senior panel members, retired Ambassador Thomas Pickering and former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Admiral Mike Mullen. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was also scheduled to testify this week, but has declined to do so as a result of her recent fainting spell. Others are unavailable to testify or have not been asked, which is a common tactic when the outcome of an investigation is fixed from the beginning, and this, based on an extensive review of all available evidence, most certainly was.

    2012 Game show panel: To Tell The Truth​


    It is an interesting bit of trivia, perhaps, that the popular television game show To Tell the Truth premiered exactly 56 years to the day that the Benghazi report was released. The objective of the 2012 real world panel appears to be the antithesis of former game show, as ferreting out the truth did not appear to be the panel’s objective.

    So. Four good men are dead and no one is accountable??

    Kinda hope you never need the military to come bail your ass out of a consulate somewhere. I guess when you get killed no one will be accountable either.

    Looks like another big cover your ass moment in the State Department. I'm sure they are overjoyed than none of them will lose their cushy Govt jobs because, gasp, they were incompetant.

    I'm also sure that the families of those four good men will be overjoyed to learn that the State Depatment won't be held accountable for the deaths of their loved ones.

    How wretched it must be to be you since from what I've read they had folks less that two hours away.

    The bozo's deemed it "too risky" to send anyone in. Its the ME. Everything is risky.

    They are all covering their asses and your buying it.

    Hope no one in your family ever needs help at consulate in the ME because you will be going to their funeral.

    Of course the State Deparmtne will be found innocent of any wrong doing. I'm sure that will make you feel better at the funeral.

    Big deal. The same folks who watched and supported Bush while he conducted a war of choice(off budget) in a soveriegn nation 10,000 miles away losing 4500 young Americans and seriously wounding another 35,000, killing 150,000 innocent Iraqis and driving 2,000,000 from their homes are all of a sudden bent out of shape because 4 Americans who volunteered to serve in dangerous surroundings drew hazardous duty pay for every month they were there then lost their lives.

    Where does this right wing absurdity stop? Next thing you know they will be supporting insane people owning military assault rifles.

    Where does the money come from for all these bullshit propaganda right wing sites anyway? There's literally hundreds of them yet no one ever talks about that. I bet Wehrwolfen has 200+ in his bookmark folder or from the source right wing site where he gets all of these bullshit articles.

    You read it three times dumbass. Notice it doesn't address the fact of prevention. We know what happened after the fact.
