Imagine for a moment that you’re the subject of an investigation, the results of which will have enormous ramifications both at home and abroad.

You can put your subordinates in a position to evaluate the performance of their supervisors, colleagues and friends. Interviews are conducted, but not transcribed. And after 10 weeks, the investigation is over and no one loses their job.

Can anyone credibly call that type of an investigation a truly independent and objective one?

This isn’t a fictitious scenario - it happened.

The blatant lies, coverup and stonewalling from this administration about the Benghazi attack are worse than the incident. If this were a CIA operation gone wrong the government should acknowledge their responsibility, correct the failures of poor judgement and get on with governing the country.
