The House Intelligence Committee spent nearly two years looking at every aspect of the Intelligence Community’s activities before, during and after the attacks of September 11, 2012...Snip
This report shows that there was no intelligence failure surrounding the Benghazi attacks that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens...And so on.
Our friends at MediaMatters are reporting that Fox News is quiet about the report. For a "news" service quick to pounce on any (ANY!) "smoking gun" report out of Darrell Issa's committee, it's interesting, is it not, that they haven't had much to say about a report debunking their ever evolving Benghazi mythos.
But then that got me to wondering. How is the House Intelligence Committee report being reported on by our own conservative "news" source, the Tribune-Review?
You'll be surprised to learn, of course, that it's not all together different from what's not being said at Fox.
As of this writing there are three post-Ruppersberger (7/31/14) hits on the word "benghazi" at the Trib search engine. Three. And none of them reference the report.
There is this letter, on the other hand:
President Obama is attempting to shift attention from his scandals by attacking former President George W. Bush. I hope the American people don't fall for that trick.Actually, the Trib's readers would certainly know the answer to the Benghazi question if the paper they rely on for information actually reported on the House Intelligence Committee's report.
If one considers waterboarding to be torture, then Bush allowed torture of Muslim terrorists.
After Sept. 11, 2001, America was under attack. How many American lives were saved and terrorist attacks foiled because we used waterboarding? Sometimes if you want to win, you must get your hands dirty.
I would like some answers to the scandals of the Obama administration. What happened to Lois Lerner's emails? Who ordered conservative groups audited? Who ordered the bugging of journalists? What really happened during the Benghazi attack on Sept. 11, 2012?
I'm sure Obama is trying very hard to bury those answers.
Which they haven't yet.
How surprising is that?
