The latest congressional "investigation" has cleared the Obama administration of any wrongdoing in the Benghazi attack.  The investigation by the House Intel Committee was not conducted by Darrell Issa's Oversight Committee, so he had nothing to do with the conclusions.


It was a thorough acquittal by a Republican led committee.  Mr. Issa has no one to accuse of a conspiracy against him.

So I called Mr. Issa's DC office today and asked about the apology.  Two solid years of accusations of everything up to treason have helped to poison the political atmosphere, and now we know, officially, that these accusations were untrue.  So far he has made no statement in response to the latest finding.

I don't post phone numbers, but it's pretty easy to get the one for Issa's DC office (scroll to bottom).  When you get the recorded message, hit 4 and you get a staffer.  If you live in his district, call the local office, and say...

"Now that we know there was no wrongdoing at Benghazi, how will Mr. Issa apologize to those he accused and to the American people, for slandering public officials and for wasting so much time and money in the investigation?"

It only takes a minute, and it really feels good to say.  I'm only one person.  He needs to hear from you also.  If you read this far, thanks.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
