Y’all are probably aware that inaccurate reports and articles about Benghazi, many of witch had to resort to lying outright to perpetuate the “scandal”, have driven me batshit crazy. It wasn’t even the politics of the whole thing that got to me; it was the God-forsaken lack of facts.

Halleluiah, there is finally a report than cannot be dismissed as Democratic propaganda by Team Republicans.

“The House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, has concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans … the report "confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down order (to U.S. forces) was given."

The Democrats cannot have skewed or faked this data, because there was a majority of Republicans on the committee who would have screamed blue murder if the Democrats had pulled any such shenanigans. The Republicans would not have skewed or faked this data, because it does them absolutely no good politically to confirm no wrong-doing in Benghazi. One side couldn’t lie and the other side did not benefit from a lie. Thus it is a reasonable facsimile of the TRUTH.

Now, with any luck, myths and distortions about Benghazi will stop popping up on my fokking Facebook page, disseminated by far-right relatives who think Obama is the Antichrist. It’s doubtful, because reality has not been their friend in the past, but hope springs eternal.
