Why the House Intel Committee’s Benghazi Report is Worthless

The House Intelligence Committee’s Final Benghazi Report is a whitewash. That’s why the media is currently running around turning cartwheels and misrepresenting the report.

But let’s clear up some myths about the report.

To quote from its introduction, “the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into the Benghazi attacks focused on the Intelligence Community’s activities before, during, and after the attacks in Benghazi… The Committee did receive evidence about the activities of the Defense Department, State Department, and White House personnel, which are explained in both the report and the additional views.  But the Committee does not make final conclusions about other agencies to the extent they were not the focus of the Committee’s investigation.”

While the media is treating this as some sort of conclusive overall report, it’s a look at the actions of the CIA.

That said, the report is a joke. I have no idea why it was even released. It’s a meaningless collection of statements undercut within that same report. Here’s another example from the introduction.

“The committee finds that a mixed group of individuals including those affiliated with Al Qaeda, participated in the attacks on US facilities in Benghazi, although the Committee finds that the intelligence was and remains conflicting about the identities, affiliations and motivations of the attackers.”

That entire sentence nullifies itself.

The report is filled with such self-nullifying conclusions in which the conclusion can be summed up as “Uh.”

The report concludes that there was no intelligence failure because there was no specific warning that an attack would occur on September 11. Aside from the “stream of contradictory and conflicting intelligence” afterward.

Nothing will be done as congress and we the people don't have backbone. Holder called us COWARDS and Gruber called us DUMB and Geraldo called us LAZY. Right now I would say these guys are 100 percent correct. Obama and his administration can do anything they want, (MURDER-FRAUD-THEFT) and people just don't care. We the people have sold out country and God.

Lawrence, I agree with you. It is a disgrace. No, we are disgrace, too. Just read the comments to this posting. It is one big rant devoid of any real action. Neither we the people nor our elected GOP representatives seem to do anything worthwhile. This fraud will go on for another two years; the ranting on this website and the inactivity of our GOP representatives will also go on. Let's just hope that something will change in 2016 and we can finally take back our country and remake it what it once was. But I am afraid everything will stay the same beyond 2016 unless we the people stop ranting and take action.

This cannot STAND! 

Question: So WHAT are WE hearing from Mr. Trey Gowdy?

Exactly!!! Then so-much for all the unprecedented hero worship. WOW! ....very disappointing, to say the least.

I'm just saying, that we are hard pressed to find any real silver lining here and there. If investigations such as this, no matter how egregious, ultimately conclude with a predetermined verdict, than ALL bets are off. The hopes of ever reversing the course will become slim to none.

It's apparent the deck is stacked. All the voting and the cheer leading is going absolutely no where. The results of this quasi-official outcome, does not bode well for a decent and fair fight. It just continues to get worse with us making ZERO progress no matter if we win in a landslide or what. Something has got to give. Something!

RFB: Correct. I get that. However, we cannot expect Washington to change itself, - WE have to change Washington. And to my knowledge, you do that by voting in the primaries, then on to the actual election. If your guy makes it through, (getting elected), you then have a fighting chance. If not, we get more of the same. That would be; watching the country sliding downwards, while the opposition party just looks on.

I agree that time is not on our side. If left to the establishment leadership, everyone's goose is cooked - including theirs. All the money in the world won' save their butt. I know that plenty of them are greedy and out right corrupt, but are they that dumb as well? Yeah, they fear for their jobs (contacts), but if a couple of them got the ball rolling, it would become contagious. They have the damn support from the majority!!!

There I go dreaming again. I'll stick with the cartoons.

I want to know also.

Frankmusic,

That is my question as well.  Where is he and why are we not hearing from him?

We are once again finding that our elected representatives(the Republicans) are as complicit to covering up the events.  What I see is the real concern is should our children or grandchildren find themselves needing clear and honest oversight, they will not receive it.  It doesn't take a scientist to know several questions needed to be answered, where to hell was Hillary and why were there no response by her to give more security.  Need I say that we need to load our guns and I'll let you add what should be done to these jerks. 

Benghazi, IRS, NSA. You can keep your doctor, the release of murders, rapist illegal Mexicans,shovel redye jobs, What has Obama and his administration " Not " lied about Obamacare is the biggest joke of all and yet no one has held held accountable... Do you think that the new's media might have something to do with it ?

 I do, if we are trying to save America from this a slat from the Progressive Socialist to takeover of America . we must find a way to get the truth to the people of America.

I'm telling you that we must " Protest " this blatant deception of the of the American people by the news media we must protest at there offices the offices of there sponsors, we simply can not let left use the media talking points and tell the Damn Truth ! 

We need to wake the hell up even if it is way too late. The republicans and democrats who are elected come across everyday like they oppose each other vehemently but in reality they are working hand in hand to turn this country into a Theocracy where they the (leadership) are the only voices. They could never get by with it if they up and out told us where they stood so they deceive us slowly. The 2014 so-called wave elections were nothing more than a cover up. We have been had. That's why the GOP hates the TEA Party more so than the dems.

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
