Now that the Republican pols have returned to Benghazi as their equivalent of raising the Titanic with the sniffing of Clinton’s emails., you might find interesting this Associated Press report earlier this month which didn’t make much , if any, of a splash in the hometown papers. It began:
“The two-year investigation by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee has found that the CIA and the military acted properly in responding to the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and asserted no wrongdoing by Obama administration officials.
“Debunking a series of persistent allegations hinting at dark conspiracies, the investigation of the politically charged incident determined that there was no intelligence failure, no delay in sending a CIA rescue team, no missed opportunity for a military rescue and no evidence the CIA was covertly shipping arms from Libya to Syria.”
So what the hell are these mind-locked conspiracy theorists thinking about when they can’t believe their own committee?
And with the McCarthy-like Ted Cruz officially in the race, it can only get worse.
