No Wrongdoing By White House in Benghazi According To GOP Led House Intelligence Committee

From Liberals Unite:

The SFGate reports that the panel voted on Thursday to declassify their latest report, “the result of two years of investigation by the committee.” The report will not be release until U.S. intelligence organizations approve releasing the report to the general public.

Thompson, the second-ranking Democrat on the committee, said the report “confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down order (to U.S. forces) was given.”

More here.

Of course, we've known all this, more or less, for a relatively long time now: no coverup, no stand-down orders, etc. In short, no scandal. I mean, obviously, the whole thing was just awful, and was rightfully investigated, as should all such events, if only to give us a better understanding of how to prevent these things in the future. But was this ever scandal worthy? Hell no! Never. There was just never anything even to suggest it. Rather, it was crazed Republicans in search of a scandal, certainly as something that could hurt Hilliary Clinton, the presumed Democratic presidential frontrunner, but also maybe for something they could use to impeach Obama, just because they irrationally hate him.

But, as they say, there's just no "there" there. So too bad, GOP.

I continue to tell crazed Republicans that they've already got everything they need to draw up impeachment articles, what with drones and an out-of-control NSA, but they just don't want to hear me. Probably because they like drones and an out-of-control NSA. But one can never be too sure.
