Breaking: GOP House Intel Committee Report – No Obama Benghazi Wrongdoing

The House Intelligence Committee just concluded an investigation on the September 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, and finds no wrongdoing by the Obama Administration -- destroying all claims by Tea Party and conservative activists.

In a stunning rebuke to its base, the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence voted to declassify on Thursday the results of its nearly two-year, $3.3 million taxpayer-paid investigation on the September 11, 2012 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, finding no intentional wrongdoing by President Barack Obama, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, or by the Obama administration. 

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that U.S. Congressman Mike Thompson, a Democrat, "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.'"

Among the Intelligence Committee's findings, according to Thompson:

-- Intelligence agencies were "warned about an increased threat environment, but did not have specific tactical warning of an attack before it happened."

-- "A mixed group of individuals, including those associated with al Qaeda, (Moammar) Khadafy loyalists and other Libyan militias, participated in the attack."

-- "There was no 'stand-down order' given to American personnel attempting to offer assistance that evening, no illegal activity or illegal arms transfers occurring by U.S. personnel in Benghazi, and no American was left behind."

-- The administration's process for developing "talking points" was "flawed, but the talking points reflected the conflicting intelligence assessments in the days immediately following the crisis."

Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died during the attacks.

The Tea Party, Republicans, and conservatives have spent nearly two years claiming the Obama administration committed treason, were at the center of a massive cover-up, and have propagated many other falsehoods and conspiracy theories that have been officially rebuked by this report and several other official government investigations, most led, ironically, by Republicans.

Meanwhile, Republicans will start yet another series of hearings, led by GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy, trying g once again to prove that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were somehow to blame for the deaths of four Americans.

Wow. And you know if it was led by Republicans, they REALLY looked.

The whole thing was really sad. I hope the issue can be laid to rest now.

One of the most left leaning newspapers in the country asked a Democrat if Democrats did any thing wrong and he said "no".

Please one of you all tell me that you aren't really that stupid.

Please.

I'm so sorry, BJ. This has to be a major disappointment for you...no more Benghazi to use in attacks on the Democrats.

Do YOU? The title of this thread says that the GOP found no wrongdoings by the Democrats !!! LOL.  The GOP! They gave  up their empty,meaningless attempt at blaming Democrats. WHy don't YOU ?

Every reply you post is so predictable and so overdone. It is always a sarcastic comment with no thought or reason behind it. Brainless.

The report itself was declassified on Thursday. Do you think no one else is going to report on it?
