Benghazi probe presses ahead despite new report

(CNN) –– The GOP-led House Select Committee on the Benghazi terror attack shows no sign of backing down despite a report from another congressional panel that, according to a top Democrat, found no intelligence failures around the deadly 2012 assault.

"There is more work to be done and more to be investigated," a spokeswoman for House Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told CNN on Wednesday.

    translation: "There is a lot more innuendo and suspicion we can create even without facts to get the radical right all excited over nothing again."
    All the major theories have been debunked. I know, I know it looks like that but it is a grand government cover up with the Illuminati in Area 51. With aliens.

    As long as it involves republican witch hunts, government shut downs, unnecessary wars, tax cuts for those who least need it, money is no object. Howdy Gowdy/Darrel Issa 2048.

    Teatroll Rosetta Stone says: "This is a mid-term election year and we've got so little else to run on that actually appeals to independents, so no, sorry, no matter what the reports and facts say, we're going to continue trying to rally independent voters around this witch hunt."

    Of the thousands of questions that have been asked and answered about Benghazi, it appears that Howdy Gowdy will have a month to come up with a new question.

    With their eyes tightly shut and their hands covering their ears, Gowdy and Issa resume their ritualistic chant in the hope that it will pay dividends in the upcoming midterm elections:
    "Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi! ..."

    " more work to be done " translates to more camera time to grab, more wild, baseless theories to push, more innuendo to suggest, and of course my favorite, more mouth breathers to pump for donations.

    The GOPT is soooo desperate. They've been running around screaming "the sky is falling, the sky is falling" since the day President Obama took office. They wouldn't give this up if Ambassador Stephens himself came back and told them there was nothing anyone could do.

    After all they have nothing else. They failed at their #1 goal to make him a one term President. They failed to stop his reelection, and despite their very best efforts to stop it, things are getting better. They failed to stop the ACA. They need this.

  21. ThinkAgain: If you don't like Congress, get rid of the repub/tea bag majority

    Hey, voters! When you go to the polls on November 4, 2014, remember this waste of time and resources the gop/tea bags insist on.

    They would rather waste taxpayer money than actually work to earn their paycheck and uphold their sworn duty to the C O N S T I T U T I O N to help our country.

    The gop/tea bags have NOTHING to offer our country – and while all their distractions may keep the wallets of their base open, the rest of us know that what's needed is to VOTE THEM ALL OUT.

    "The GOP-led House Select Committee on the Benghazi terror attack shows no sign of backing down despite a report from another congressional panel that, according to a top Democrat, found no intelligence failures around the deadly 2012 assault." LMAO!! GOP followers should be "SO PROUD" of their representatives. What a joke on the tax payers money!! How many of these so called committees ruled that there was no wrong doing? Like 6 so far. How can people vote for these clowns.
