Closing Thought–14Dec16

Benghazi–Is it finally over?

For what seems like a lifetime the American people have been head about the head and shoulders with the Congressional Benghazi investigation……and yesterday it was announced without fanfare that the investigation was over and the report submitted….

The special congressional investigation into the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi is officially over now that the panel filed its final report the day before the House adjourned for the year.

The Select Committee on Benghazi initially released its findings in June but remained in place for months afterward trying to declassify supporting documents like emails and interview transcripts for public release.

The final report, not including dissenting views from committee Democrats, clocks in at more than 322,000 words. It was added to the official House record without fanfare on Dec. 7 by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the panel’s chairman.

The panel, which spent more than $7.8 million over two and a half years, disbanded at the end of the 114th Congress, before a new Congress begins in January.

Interesting how fast the “investigation” was terminated after a GOP win at the polls….I am sure that it was just a coincidence, right?

    1. Not once did any of these people ask the one question that would tell the tale….why did the ambassador go in so light on security knowing that it was a hot spot of dissent?

      1. According to Newsweek, while he was still in Libya, he knew that the CIA was in Benghazi, but he was not informed as to just how badly the tide had turned.

      2. Nope but if they knew of the possibility of trouble…he should have been warned…if he was then I still would like to know why he went in with light security.

      3. I see your point, but I suppose only he knows the answer to that. I doubt he risked his life and others’ just to occupy that position.
