To The Daily Sun,
Steve Earle, the twister of facts, is under the mistaken impression that only the State Department found no wrongdoing in the Benghazi tragedy. He cleverly omitted the GOP-led bipartisan Select Committee (which was given the following charge):
"On May 8, 2014, the House of Representatives adopted H. Res. 567, Providing for the Establishment of the Select Committee on the Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi, Libya. The "House Select Committee on the Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi" will have special investigatory tools not available to every standing committee of the House. It will have clear goals designed to force accountability, get the full truth, and help provide justice. The four Americans killed in service to the country and the American people deserve no less."
That quote is directly from http://www.gop.gov/solution_content/benghazi/.
On Nov. 21, 2014, the final report was released: In an article in The Blaze (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/11/21/now-thats-what-i-call-a-friday-news-dump-final-report-released-after-two-year-investigation-into-benghazi/):
"A two-year investigation by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee has found that the CIA and the military acted properly in responding to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and asserted no wrongdoing by Obama administration appointees.
Debunking a series of persistent allegations hinting at dark conspiracies, the investigation of the politically charged incident determined that there was no intelligence failure, no delay in sending a CIA rescue team, no missed opportunity for a military rescue, and no evidence the CIA was covertly shipping arms from Libya to Syria."
Now to quote Steve's letter, "How it works is each department or agency suspected of wrongdoing decides beforehand what the investigation findings should be then announces an investigation then shortly after announces that they cleared themselves."
Wow, Steve. You must have known this report was out. Why did you purposely avoid mentioning it? Oh wait, I know. It's because you are smarter than anyone else (after all, you do watch Fox News) and think that whatever you write is believed by all readers without question. Mr. Osmer was spot on in his factual comments. You, sir, are disingenuous and as usual dead wrong and your purposeful misrepresentation of the facts does a grave disservice to the brave lives lost that tragic day. Who would ever believe anything you write? Shame on you Mr. Earle.
