I love how Muslims are now using American Free Speech claims in Russia to win some kind of allowance to continue drumming up violence and hate inside Russia. It may work here in Amerca where pansy-Leftists are only too eager to sacrifice American safety and security in order to give Muslims their "free speech" rights...those rights they use to spew filth...hate...and organize violence against the country that allowed them in....WE are that weak and stupid and self-destructive...but...Russia is not....

Fox Ignores Findings Of Bipartisan Benghazi Report To Revive Calls For A Special Prosecutor

Fox Ignores Findings Of Bipartisan Benghazi Report To Revive Calls For A Special Prosecutor | Current Politics | Scoop.it
Yet another bipartisan report finds no evidence of a Benghazi "cover-up", but Fox sticks by its conspiracy theories http://t.co/DJXKHnr9wj
Tom Hauck's insight:

For the idiots at Media Matters on this report...I dropped them my comment as follows:

 

Media Matters Communist tendencies draw their attention from the truth of the Benghazi report and direct their efforts to providing cover and sympathy for their elites.

As fully covered by Matt Stavers, the
Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the Benghazi attacks calls
out the Obama administration for obstruction and says, “The role of the
White House must be fully explored.”

The report also issues a
scathing indictment on the actions and decisions of then-Secretary of
State Hillary Clinton and her management team.

The September
11, 2012, terrorist attacks took the lives of four Americans, including
Ambassador Chris Stevens. Many more Americans were injured.


Although the report only mentions then-Secretary Clinton by name once,
the committee has determined that the attacks were preventable and cites
the State Department for failure to act while having ample opportunity
to heed the calls coming from Libya for increased security. Members of
the committee said this in a press release...

“The Committee
found the attacks were preventable, based on extensive intelligence
reporting on the terrorist activity in Libya — to include prior threats
and attacks against Western targets — and given the known security
shortfalls at the U.S. Mission.

The State Department should
have increased its security posture more significantly in Benghazi based
on the deteriorating security situation on the ground…”

The
most damning details of the report emerged from minority members,
Senators Chambliss, Burr, Risch, Coats, Rubio, and Coburn. Here are a
few of their blistering bullet points:

The Obama administration is called out for obstruction of the investigation…

“Important questions remain unanswered as a direct result of the
Obama Administration's failure to provide the Committee with access to
necessary documents and witnesses… We believe the Administration's lack
of cooperation is directly contrary to its statutory obligation to keep
the congressional intelligence committees fully and currently informed
and has effectively obstructed the Committee's efforts to get to the
ground truth with respect to these remaining questions… We believe the
role of the White House must be fully explored.”

The administration’s “talking points” rebutted…

“From the beginning, the Administration's handling of the Benghazi
attacks has been a source of confusion to Congress, the American people,
other nations, and-most significantly, the families of those killed in
Benghazi… Instead, we were subjected to Sunday news programs, carefully
crafted speeches, and delayed briefings - all designed to label the
terrorist attacks as violent demonstrations spontaneously inspired by an
obscure anti-Muslim film that has long since been forgotten.”

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cited for failure…

“Ultimately, however, the final responsibility for security at
diplomatic facilities lies with the former Secretary of State, Hillary
Clinton… At the end of the day, she was responsible for ensuring the
safety of all Americans serving in our diplomatic facilities. Her
failure to do so clearly made a difference in the lives of the four
murdered Americans and their families.”

As Hillary Clinton
begins her widely anticipated run for the presidency in 2016, every
American should be asking what kind of leadership she would bring to the
nation when it was her failed leadership of the State Department which
is cited as being the major source of fault in the failure to protect
American outposts and lives.

"Important questions remain unanswered."

Every citizen should also be concerned with the Committee’s findings
that “Important questions remain unanswered as a direct result of the
Obama Administration's failure to provide the Committee with access to
necessary documents and witnesses.”

The ability to subpoena
President Obama, witnesses, and necessary documents to uncover critical
details is vital to this ongoing investigation.

It is
high time for the stonewalling to end and for Members of Congress to
establish a Select Committee to uncover the truth!

This is a vitally important issue that cannot and must not be swept
under the rug. We need a groundswell of grassroots support for a full
investigation into the Obama-Benghazi cover-up. As the committee’s
minority report concludes,

“Ultimately, we must ensure that
all the facts about our government's actions prior to, during, and after
the attacks are brought to light for the American people to judge for
themselves. The families of those murdered in Benghazi deserve the
truth, and all of our intelligence, military, and diplomatic
professionals who serve overseas in dangerous
places are entitled to
have confidence that the errors of Benghazi will not be repeated.”

Now...while I understand to Leftist zombies, 4 murdered Americans are not nearly as important as a traffic jam that caused massive "inconvenience"....but please...stop proving how shallow and un-American you are by this continued slobbering over your failures in office and your complete denial a of truth and misrepresentations of facts.
