Republican House panel: No administration wrongdoing in Benghazi attack

This should be a lesson to every conspiracy-theory-screaming republican out there that you cannot believe the unadulterated bullshit you are being fed daily by fox news. In the end you just look like the fools you apparently really are. Here are the highlights you should know:
  • 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.
  • Intelligence agencies were "warned about an increased threat environment, but did not have specific tactical warning of an attack before it happened."
  • "A mixed group of individuals, including those associated with al Qaeda, (Moammar) Khadafy loyalists and other Libyan militias, participated in the attack."
  • "There was no 'stand-down order' given to American personnel attempting to offer assistance that evening, no illegal activity or illegal arms transfers occurring by U.S. personnel in Benghazi, and no American was left behind."
  • The administration's process for developing "talking points" was "flawed, but the talking points reflected the conflicting intelligence assessments in the days immediately following the crisis."
So what will be the next insane bullshit lie the republicans will scream at us for months on end only to have it quietly disappear over time without so much as a whimper? The gullibility of republicans seemingly knows no bounds.
