Have you made yourself aware of the conclusions set forth in the House Armed Services Committee latest interim report concerning the Benghazi terrorist attack in their latest published assessment?

Why does Fox keep referring to the media? they ARE the media. SMH

I read part of this but one thing that jumps out is that it expresses the opinion of the majority members. The three named are Rep.

I have to question it's validity as it is opinion and the reduction in funding for embassy security again by Reps also bothersome.

It's says Obama, Clinton sent Rice out to lie for political reasons because the election was approaching.

Bwa ha ha ha!

Who would even suggest such a farce? Oh, that's right. A 'news' organization trying to do something for their (losing) guy because an election was approaching.

I had not. Thanks for the link. I just read it, and found nothing in there a surprise. I especially liked that both the President and Congress were mentioned as needing to get their sh*t together before it happens again. Can't argue with that.

With so many high ranking officers being replaced with hand picked Obama followers, I don't respect or believe any excrement coming out of DC. We are in a world of hurt, with all sides trying to cover their own if not someone else's collective A$$es.

The reports actually contradicts many of the original talking points from the Obama administration.

"Terrorist attack" opposed to "spontaneous protest" which came from the CIA talking points

Where is the smoking gun? In the whole report, does it say specifically who was at fault? Someone made several bad decisions. It would be simple to to state the facts on 1 8-1/2" x 11" piece of paper. Instead we get convoluted, superfluous verbiage.

Pol, it's a comprehensive assessment a year and a half after the fact. I'm not surprised at all that it would be different than anything issued days after the attack.

Nonetheless, let's see how this is reported by our favorite news outlets...if it is at all.

Now that you've seen it, keep an eye out for reports on your trusted news sources and how it is reported.

The problem is that I don't think it was a honest mistake. Hicks and this report indicates that many instinctively thought the Benghazi attack was a terrorist attack.

1) why wouldn't you say "we don't know for sure, the investigation is pending, but we think it's related to events that have been happening in several different countries over the past few days", until the investigation was initiated?

RJ, it was reported on Fox tonight on the Hannity Show. He interviewed a congresswoman who served on the committee who wrote this report.

2) "What difference does it make?" It matters because if Hillary or Obama knew otherwise that Benghazi was a terrorist attack then we were lied to.

What's wrong with this report?

political Georgia
02/11/14 9:37 pm

It is sad it took over a year to investigate this. Part of the problem was that we didn't get the little bit of information from Hillary and the whistleblowers until about 4-6 months after the incident.

By 'we' you mean you and other Fox News viewers that 'reported' on this without the facts?

Well I think there were too many "reports" made (on an hourly basis) concerning issues without the facts. It might have been wise for an organization representing themselves as news to have verified facts first.

But I'm old fashioned, I guess.

We still did not get the "full report". And yes RJ we got our news from Fox because they are the only ones who ever talked about it.

Exactly my point. They talked about it. Over and over and over and over, without the facts. And that's the problem.

RJ - the facts were not presented thats why Fox kept bringing it up. Killary said nothing during testimony. Ambassador asked for security for three months several times and was denied. The 3 witnesses that came forward were demoted and not allowd

To speak without Killsrys lawyers in tow. FBI did no inspection till 3 weeks after the fact when site was compromised. Obama told the world at the UN two weeks later that it was a video even tho was told by Panetta that night it was a terrorist

Attack. I could go on and on but very little media coverage on MSM was given and when it was Fox was spoken about more than anything. The next day
less than 12 hours later Obama was campaigning in Vegas. Witnesses were thereted and one guy

What a load of drivel. No, you don't have the facts. And you sound like a child when you say Killery. More than 10 Benghazis happened under Bush, where was the faux outrage then? Again and again faux talking points get discredited. So many

Ignorant people still believe the 60 minutes version of the story, even when 60 minutes themselves no longer stand behind it. The only one which blood on their hands are the "fiscal conservatives" in congress who refused to fund the requested extra
