Graham: House Benghazi report is ‘full of crap’

Source: Washington Times

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that a report on the Benghazi attack released late last week is “full of crap.”

The GOP-led House committee’s report found no failures in intelligence in connection with the 2011 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya and also found that any misinformation released after the attack was accidentally incorrect — not a deliberate attempt to mislead people.

But Mr. Graham, South Carolina Republican, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the report is inaccurate and that the House Intelligence Committee that released the report accepted a “bunch of garbage.”

Time for South Carolina to demand a mental competency examination for Lindsey Graham.

Let this be a lesson: "sane Republican" is an oxymoron.

OMG -- His party carries on costly and redundant hearings and investigations for two years -- they write a report -- and because it doesn't meet the pre-conceived ideas of Graham, he labels it a load of crap. The man just can't accept facts -- no matter on what subject -- facts don't matter to him. He relies on his "feelings" and what he has convinced himself as truth.
One of these days, I expect to see him crumple, fainting, to the floor in the throes of an enormous hissy fit,

11. As J.K. Trotter at Gawker put Lindsey's assessment of the situation

Now, this might be news to a certain segment of the population, but as the AP’s Ken Dilanian notes,the investigation largely replicated the findings of six prior investigations carried out by Congress:

Many of its findings echo those of six previous investigations by various congressional committees and a State Department panel. The eighth Benghazi investigation is being carried out by a House Select Committee appointed in May.

Here’s hoping the eighth, or the ninth, or tenth investigation will finally uncover the truth.

I guess Republicans were concerned that the White House answered letters to Socks the Cat's fan club using White House stationary. Yes, seriously... the same Republicans that called terrorism an "empty threat" back in the mid 90s had to investigate Socks.

55. And there was Fala, FDR's dog.......

And of course FDR had a field day with it, supposedly after being advised by Orson Welles on how to respond.

These Republican leaders have not been content with attacks on me, or my wife, or on my sons. No, not content with that, they now include my little dog, Fala. Well, of course, I don't resent attacks, and my family don't resent attacks, but Fala does resent them. You know, Fala is Scotch, and being a Scottie, as soon as he learned that the Republican fiction writers in Congress and out had concocted a story that I'd left him behind on an Aleutian island and had sent a destroyer back to find him—at a cost to the taxpayers of two or three, or eight or twenty million dollars—his Scotch soul was furious. He has not been the same dog since. I am accustomed to hearing malicious falsehoods about myself ... But I think I have a right to resent, to object, to libelous statements about my dog.[7]

19. What we have here

What we have is a right wing nut basically attacking his buddy Trey saying that his investigation was a sham and that your party couldn't find anything wrong even though your hypocrite tried to use the deaths as a political toy, so we now have a continuing whiner whine.

So, lets ask all you republicans out there in the hinder land this:

One: How much do you think it has cost the taxpayers in million of dollars to come this conclusion from your right wing three plus years of absolute bullsh***t ?: mad:

Two: I want to remind your ilk that you have wasted our tax dollars based on fear and hate and I think everyday we should remind everyone in your party how completely inept you really are.

And what we have here-----------is a stupid hypocrite getting $174,000 a year doing nothing except whine and to top it all off ,being given air time to spew his disillusion, and not challenged on his competency to be a representative of your party and he should be will be reminded of this fact everyday until he has a complete melt down from reality

28. No, he wasn't attacking Trey -- Trey's investigation has only just begun

 

You write, "What we have is a right wing nut basically attacking his buddy Trey saying that his investigation was a sham...."

Graham was attacking the House Intelligence Committee report, which followed a two-year investigation. Representative Trey Gowdy heads the House Select Committee that started its own investigation earlier this year and is expected to conduct hearings through much of 2015 and quite possibly well into 2016 (maybe even generating headlines adverse to Hillary Clinton as the 2016 campaign gets underway, but I'm SURE that that wasn't in the Republicans' minds, no, not at all).

Then of course there were the investigations by the FBI, the State Department, and the Senate.

You can't tell your Benghazi investigations without a scorecard.

54. COSTS

In my reality of all of this is really simply :

Strike One: To keep reminding everyone that these hypocrites are using these deaths as a political toy, and the family requested that
they quit, but they will not, absolutely is shameful

Strike Two: Creating a new investigation by right wing republicans costing the tax payers millions without doing anything except getting
the same answer with 18 or more right wing republicans on the committee x's @ $174,000 = $3,132,000 dollars a day not
including staff or when they are in session running around in circles trying to catch there right wing tail, while we have
70,000 bridges that are falling apart in this country for example and then have a right wing hypocrite whiner, to hear him
whine again and again, stammer, jump up and down with immature hypocrisy of the results and same set of facts

Strike Three: To let the right wing nuts target Hillary all they want, but the simple fact of the matter is they defunded the protection
services of the State and these right wing nuts should be reminded by everyone about this fact and they are in some way
responsible

Strike One, Two and Three of this dog and pony show by these right wing nuts on a score card from four federal investigations and there were no balls to get on base with there right wing rhetoric, and they should be thrown out of the game for the simple fact of being stupid, deceitful and just plain despicable

Look around and we see similar verbiage and planted articles coming out on a daily basis. Hey,the Power Structure of the Rethugs are calling in their IOU's and now their really pissed because they were check mated by M. Obama. Now the battle is on for the soul of what is left,is it going to be the hard right or the Wall Street Wing?

41. The RW meme for Obama is now "lawless"

My Congressman's (Hensarling TX-05) FB page has RWers saying over and over again to "stop this LAWLESS Obama." Lawless has become their favorite adjective, followed closely by "king" and "emperor." (King and emperor are actually nouns, but you get the point.) I don't know, the "lawless" meme really irks me. It doesn't matter what the facts are. The most important thing to them is the vicious hatred that boils up inside them and bubbles over into public discourse.
