Understanding the GOP’s
Benghazi Obsession

Time Magazine, by Michael Crowley

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 2/21/2013 2:08:19 PM

For the past five months, the Republican message on foreign policy message has been defined by a single word: Benghazi. Ever since the deadly September 11 attack on the U.S. compound in that Libyan city, Republicans have obsessed over the episode. Mitt Romney made Benghazi a favorite talking point in the 2012 campaign home stretch. More recently, Republicans have invoked Benghazi to shoot down one would-be cabinet nominee, Susan Rice, and delay two others, Chuck Hagel and John Brennan. They have dragged a parade of administration officials, including Hillary Clinton

Comments:
You can tell this has Barry and his media lackeys nervous. This is a whitewash piece which pretty much acknowledges the incompetence and subsequent cover-up, but then wonders why people insist on getting to the bottom of it.
America better keep up the pressure because this stinks.

GOP trying to get the truth out of the Dems about a scandal is called an Obsession.

Media covering for said Dems should be called a disgrace.

Remember the Valerie Plane affair? That was a complete pseudo-scandal made up out of whole cloth by leftists within our government - an investigation initiated without an underlying crime - a complete farce and total witch hunt, and these clowns have the nerve to ask what the GOP´s obsession is ?
We have credible evidence of the POTUS and Sec. State, both with documented histories of lying to the public, conspiring to cover-up the murder of several U.S. citizens, including an ambassador, to conceal the fact that their policies have failed and that they ignored warnings of the attacks. Bill and Hillary got away with the flight 800 cover-up, Barry and Hillary ought not skate away from this.

The Accountability Review Board can hardly be classified as independent. Hillary appointed the members.

Dereliction of duty, which Obama appears guilty of, is a high crime.

Perhaps Mr. Crowley would next like to explore the Left´s obsession with kissing Barack Obama´s posterior. And what about obsessions? Was the left´s endless coverage of Watergate an obsession? No one died. Iran-Contra? Bush and supposed cocaine use...supposed TANG misadventures...a DUI 20 years before running for president...Robert Bork...Clarence Thomas...Scooter Libby, etc Matthew Crowley is either a true believer or an idiot.

I found it interesting that within the entire article, no mention was made of what happened. Oh, it was "deadly" and a "tragedy" and he even made a vague mention of 4 American deaths. But nothing was described or explained as though we ALL know exactly the incident that the author refers to because it´s been explained so well so many times.

What a load of hogwash.

By the way in case you didn´t notce, no on was fired at State for this incompetence, they were merely hidden in other jobs.
Gany Crowley sould have been fired for the misinformation she provided at the debate, and it was obvious that she had been prepared by the 0blamer machine for that scene.
Further there is an ill w blowing in the mieast today, in case you had not noticed.
Maybe you should watch 2016 for some original, if seemingly outrageous ideas.
Just keep them in the back of your mind if you get short of ideas for a motive.

We must accept the fact that our president cares nothing about those Americans killed in Benghazi - one ambassador, one consulate employee, two CIA operatives that were former Seals. Obama does not care about anyone other than his daughters and Valerie Jarrett. He only cares about his own power.

The legacy media is beginning to admit to themselves they have been duped and used. It´s too late for them to do the right thing.

As for Hillary, she cares only about her political future. She has no value and will be almost 70 years old, older than Goofus Biden, when she hopes to run form president. An old white Democrat surrounded by more old white Democrats.

It is becoming more and more clear Obama does not plan to leave in 2016.

I´m so sorry to burst your bubble(head) Mikey but you nitwits in the press have helped Odumbo and his administration lie, cover up and dismiss the truth about Benghazi. The GOP liquid spined eunichs need to pound this issue to get to the truth of the matter. The people who died and those that were injured deserve nothing less. Also if this keeps the Obamanation under it´s well deserved black cloud so much the better.

First, Obama and Clinton denied our people any security in a nation that barely had a government and had a violent revolution. That is a gross violation of common sense and worthy of a charge of homicide against those that refused to provide any security and for Clinton because of her refusal to do her job.

While our people were under attack no effort was made to rescue them despite the fact that we had jets 1 hour away in Italy. Someone told our on the scene Seals to stand down and do nothing while our people were murdered. Obama even fired an admiral and general for refusing to obey an order to provide no help. Lastly, even though Obama knew that our people were being murdered, he got good night’s sleep. Clinton was right about 3 AM phone calls.

After the attack Obama´s primary concern was preventing knowledge of his failures from affecting his reelection. He spent weeks lying about a video. He lied again in the debate when he claimed that he called it a terrorist attack. Then there was his promise to make the attackers pay for these murders. It was a lie. Obama doesn´t want to catch them. He must be afraid of what these terrorists will say? Was Obama providing weapons to Al Qaeda? Did they use the weapon Obama provided to murder our people? Judging on Obama´s past actions, such as fast and furious, you have to expect the worst from Obama.

So in light of these failures and the murders of our people why hasn’t Time and the rest of the Obama media asked any questions of Obama? Why haven’t they investigated this disaster? The answer is that they aren’t reporters anymore. They belong to the Goebbels school of journalism now.

Osama bin Laden´s son-in-law, the voice of fiery al-Qaida propaganda videotapes after the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans for his role as the terror group´s spokesman. The verdict came after about five hours of deliberation in the case against Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking al-Qaeda figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. The Kuwaiti imam had testified during a three-week trial that he answered bin Laden´s request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like

He says that´s necessary to ensure that NATO remains a credible force in the world. Obama says NATO can´t just be a U.S. or British exercise.

"When you shrink that affects what can eat you, what you can eat, how successful you´re going to be at reproducing. Bigger is generally better."

When NASA astronauts were suiting up to go to space in the 1960s, they had to make a big decision before they explored the world above us: How large of a man are you? Getting it wrong could damage the mission. According to a former NASA life support system expert who helped construct space diapers, otherwise known as Maximum Absorbency Garment systems, each astronaut in the Gemini and Apollo programs had to wear a condom-type sheath with a hole at the end for urination inside their suits.

A new species of praying mantis, Liturgusa algorei, indigenous to the thick rain forests of Peru has been named after former vice president Al Gore; one of 19 new species of the insect recently identified by entomologist Gavin Svenson. The discoveries came after Svenson, curator of invertebrate zoology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, decided to search through both old collections at museums and embark on field expeditions into the forests of Central and South America. Unlike the patient, zen-like praying mantis we´re all familiar with, these equatorial cousins take a decidedly different approach to both hunting and self-preservation. "This group,

President Obama, like most Kenyan politicians, loves beating about the bush and avoiding the real issue. In Kenya, we all know the big problem is corruption, but we are addressing virtually everything else but corruption. And so in America, our cousin President Obama dances around serious issues like the typical Kenyan he is. When Russia invaded Georgia in 2008, Obama thundered with indignation and a fulsome, righteous — and justified — anger. The people of Georgia thought he would follow through on his fiery words with real action to set their country free of Russia’s torment, but wapi! With Cousin Barry, as with

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease.
