Ever since it became crystal clear that ObamaCare is working so well that Republicans can no longer use it is their scandal du jour, Benghazi has been the be all and end all of Republican attempts to manufacture a scandal to keep Americans from focusing on how Republicans in government are behaving.  Why is the terrorist responsible still at large?  Why did you decrease embassy security?  Why didn’t you protect the American Ambassador?  Why did Susan Rice lie to us with that ridiculous tale about a movie setting it off?  On and on they go, whine after whine!  But while Republicans whined, Obama acted.

0619AbuKhatalaAmerican commandos operating under the cover of night seized the man suspected of leading the deadly attack on the United States Mission in Benghazi, Libya, the government announced on Tuesday, ending a manhunt that had dragged on for nearly two years and inflamed domestic and international politics.

With drones hovering overhead, about two dozen Delta Force commandos and two or three F.B.I. agents descended on the outskirts of Benghazi just after midnight local time on Monday; grabbed the suspect, Ahmed Abu Khattala; stuffed him into a vehicle and raced away, according to officials briefed on the operation. No shots were fired, and the suspect was spirited out of Libya to a United States Navy warship in the Mediterranean.

The capture was a breakthrough in finding the perpetrators of an episode that has been politically divisive from the start. President Obama and the State Department have been buffeted by multiple investigations and charges of misleading the public about the circumstances of the attack, which cost the lives of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans on Sept. 11, 2012. The president and administration officials have strongly rebutted the allegations and accused Republicans of politicizing a national tragedy… [emphasis added]

So the terrorist responsible is no longer at large.  Neither is Osama.  Obama brought them to justice.  Bush looked for Osama under the furniture.  Embassy security was reduced, because House Republicans cut the funding for it. The Ambassador chose to go beyond the area where he could be protected, and Susan Rice told the truth, as you’re about to see.

Chris Hayes provided excellent coverage of this story, debunking Republican lies along the way.

There’s little I can add to that, except that Joe Wilson had better take care. Republicans might commit sedition by illegally outing his wife, Valerie Plame from, the CIA. OOPS! To late! They already did that.

  1. Have a listen to the excellent Chris Hayes video intervew above. BENGHAZI LEADER Captured & GOP/FOX lies debunked. Or on the YouTube at:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_F0iavZ2bnk  Well worth the15 minutes listening while you do something else. lol. Joe Wilson offers a scathing review and interpretation of the GOP/Fox bullying tactics and its consequnces. Awesome!

    • That's the video embedded in this article Jim.  To go right to it at YouTube, just click the YouTube logo in the video frame here.

  2. Once again, it takes a Democrat to find the truth and to clean up the problem.  

     

    Republicans cause problems.  Democrats find solutions.  Who would you rather have running the country, trouble makers or solution finders?

  3. I really appreciate Joe Wilson's telling it like it is about the fact that the Republicans are dishonorably, knowingly, and intentionally undermining our national security by their grandstanding.  Sure many are morons.  But some, not just Cheney, Bush, and Rumsfeld, are traitors.

    • I would hope he's switched by now, but Wilson was one of their own.  There's just no toleration for honesty in today's Republican Party.

  4. I think they are very afraid. They have no integrityI

  5. And they are still whining.  Some things never change. 

     

  6. It would not surprise me to find out that the Republicanus/Teabaggers orchestrated the entire Benghazi incident. Sure, they didn't pass adequate funding for embassy security thereby putting people at heightened risk.  But where did this piss poor video come from?  Who orchestrated it?  I have no proof, only questions.  I am not a conspiracy theorist bent on my own agenda.  I believe in the truth, something that does not exist in the minds and actions of Republicanus/Teabaggers.

    • While they did not orchestrate it it, they are at fault for it.  They cut the funding and they were behind the video that sparked outrage.

  7. Well, what are the Republicans going to focus on now?  The ACA, or Obamacare is successful, the Benghazi theories are debunked, the economy is growing, their attacks against his personal life have not done well.  Their little minds must get busy trying to find some justification for their existence in DC.

    President Obama said justice will come no matter of time, my only question is what will Republicans have left to whine about? :roll:
