House GOP Report: Despite eyewitness accounts, Clinton, administration pushed video explanation for Benghazi

House GOP Report: Despite eyewitness accounts, Clinton, administration pushed video explanation for Benghazi | Fox News

EXCLUSIVE – The claim that the fatal 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks were sparked by an anti-Muslim video was crafted in Washington by Obama administration appointees and reflected neither eyewitness nor real-time reports from the Americans under siege, according to the final report of the GOP-led Benghazi Select Committee.
The GOP report, released Tuesday, followed by less than a day a report by the Democrats on the panel saying that security at the Benghazi, Libya facility was “woefully inadequate” but former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton never personally denied any requests from diplomats for additional protection.
According to portions of the Republican report reviewed by Fox News, one U.S. agent at the American outpost in Benghazi, whose name was withheld for security reasons, told the committee he first heard “some kind of chanting.”
Then that sound was immediately followed by “explosions” and “gunfire, then roughly 70 people rushing into the compound with an assortment of “AK-47s, grenades, RPG’s … a couple of different assault rifles,” the agent said.
You can read the rest of it. It doesn't look good; the administration manufactured the whole video story. There was zero evidence of a video involved, yet they tried to make a big deal of it. They being the underling appointees. Clinton and Susan Rice went out publically touting it, when they knew better. They should have known better, because they knew it was a terrorist attack within the first minutes; there is zero doubt about that. This fact hasn't changed since the beginning, but now it's conclusive. Clinton is an incompetent boob or a liar. Democrats and those trying to elect Clinton at all cost are trying to get out ahead of this, because they know it's damning. I don't want anyone that corrupt and incompetent near the "red button" (as Clinton herself put it re: Trump).

The issue with this is... we already knew this. Clinton supporters don't want to believe it, so it doesn't matter what evidence they get. "Benghazi" is one of those things only Crazy Republicans care about, and the value of not-siding-with-Republicans outweighs the value of following-the-truth. :(

Re: House GOP Report: Despite eyewitness accounts, Clinton, administration pushed vid

It is important to remember that this attack was 7 weeks before the 2012 election. "UBL is dead, GM is alive and Al Qaeda is on the run" would not play as well if headlines said "Al Qaeda (and its ilk) is still killing US diplomatic personnel". This had to be sold as being about something other than US foreign policy (or diplomatic security) in Libya and the presence of organized terror attacks.

Benghazi was a CIA operation shipping Libyan arms to Turkey to be forwarded to "moderate rebels/ISIS/al Qeda" in Syria. The cover story was blown full of holes and noone wants to talk about arming ISIS by any other name.

LOL.....I guess when you have nothing else in your arsenal you do what you have to do....go back and try Benghazi for the 13920th time. What is it with you Republicans that you keep trying the same failed things over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and expect different results? Doh!

That's actually been proven by the fact the political appointees inside the administration concocted this video story, and had Clinton and Rice selling it. So cue your damn music because the shoe fits. Own it!

It's called a final report, and it's part of concluding an investigation. Because Dems are leaking their own preemptive strike at it, doesn't change anything. The Dem report is a fail.

This report is literally a fail. There is still no evidence of wrongdoing. All the conspiracy theories were found to be bull**** . If anything all they found was "well she should of known!". :roll:

Sorry. You can keep repeating that to yourself to make yourself believe it, but in reality there is no evidence of wrongdoing.

Hillary just secured the nomination and had the best 3 weeks of her political life yet she gained 0 in the polls. That is the definition of nothing in the arsenal. Trump just had his worst 3 week and even the heavily weighted toward democrats polls show he is rapidly recovering.

1. Clinton and Obama lied about why the attack happened.

2. Clinton and Obama lied about asssetd being available to lend assistance.

3. Clinton and Obama never made a single attempt to deploy a relief force.

4. Clinton and Obama denied security upgrades to the personel in Libya.

There was plenty of wrongdoing.

Way to completely miss the point. The point is that not only did she know - they all knew. You and others that believe the half baked stories they've fed you are the only ones who don't know, and willingly so. It's a classic case of putting politics above the truth. Those are the principles on display by the left here. We were hoping that in the end you guys would prove better than that. It's disappointing, to say the least.

September 11 2012 Hillary offered the President of Libya extra security but refused it to our Ambassador. Chris Stevens made dozens of requests in the weeks leading up to that attack all denied by Hillary.

WE all know righties are going to push the Republican report and lefties are going to push the Dem one. Nothing new there.

But let me ask you a question.Do you believe Hillary Clinton?


"Did you tell them it was about the film?” host George Stephanopoulos asked.
“No,” Clinton responded bluntly"

Kate Quigley, the sister of Glen Doherty, insists that Clinton did tell her the video was to blame,
Three other family members of two of the other victims have also gone on the record saying Clinton blamed the attack on the YouTube video “The Innocence of Muslims” at the casket ceremony, and promised to throw the filmmaker in prison.

I think you are using the wrong words here. If you consider purposefully misleading the public for personal gain (a.k.a., lying) as "wrongdoing," then there is plenty of evidence of wrongdoing. I believe you meant to say there is no evidence of criminal conspiracy or a crime being committed by Hillary. I make this assumption because you have a socialist lean. If you can't trust government, how can you trust the government to run everything? I imagine that truthful leadership would be a value we can all agree on.

Oh puh-lease. You guys have tried this story over and over and over and over and over and over and over......there is a reason why the American people aren't buying it....yet you keep trying it again and again....I guess its all you have in your arsenal. Sad. Maybe you should have tried finding a decent candidate out there. That would have been a better ploy.

Did you watch the news conference today? What a crock. It was clear that this is just another Republican political stunt. They all had the same talking points. Did you count how many times they said "new evidence"? LOL.....shameless how Republicans continuously politicize the death of 4 Americans to try to make political points. That is just reprehensible.

LOL....I don't know what polls you are watching. Almost every poll showed huge gains...in which she opened double digit leads. Oh.....I bet you are probably just watching those right-wing sites...the same ones that said that Romney was going to win in a landslide. You need to pay attention more.
