    and what lies were told?  

    I've researched enough detail with reliable sources to take the April 23 House Committee report apart but is anyone even interested in wading through all that muck to read about it?  Why is it important?

    •  "Why is it important?" (0+ / 0-)

      hating what the House Rs are doing is understandable, but dismissing the murder of an ambassador and four others so blithely is really hard to get.

        It seems you understood that I'm talking about a narrow topic, a slice of the drama in DC.  I'm not referring to the attack itself or the events that happened in Benghazi.  Obviously we wouldn't have the drama in DC without the events last September 11.  I'm asking about this particular stage of the political controversy.   What's going on right now.  Why is it important and if the deaths are the only reason that's fine.  I'm trying to understand how people feel about the effect of the controversy on the political process.

    •  I recall watching MTP w/my wife that Sunday (0+ / 0-)

      and when Suzanne Rice made her comments on Benghazi I looked over at my wife and commented what a load of BS.

      Even at that point her commenst about it being a spontaneous event flew in the face of new articles..

      •  Have you ever been involved in the investigation (0+ / 0-)

        of a criminal matter or any type of law enforcement case?
        I think it used to be common knowledge in the US that investigations were done so that factual information could be discovered which would lead to a conclusion.  

        "Conclusion" is  one of those interesting words in English that can be understood more than one way.  A conclusion is the decision one reaches after using a process of reasoning and logic.  It is has a more general meaning as something that comes at the end.  

        That Sunday, Susan Rice also said that the FBI was still at the beginning of an investigation.  In law enforcement, a conclusion at that point, isn't only premature, it also jeopardizes the integrity of the investigation.  Standards have declined. The rule of law has been corroded and undermined. Gossip and biased opinions are abundant. Long live the burden of proof.
