The Facts the Congressional Committee concluded about Benghazi, Curious?

Okay, all ye diehard rightwing Republican extremists...let's discuss the facts, shall we?
Between 2001 and 2007 while Republicans had control of both House and Senate during the lawless Bush/Cheney presidency, there were 13 deadly attacks on U.S. diplomatic sites, with two of these deadly attacks on the SAME consulate in Karachi, Pakistan. GW's first Secretary of State Colin Powell told Wolf Blitzer of CNN and then Meet The Press on NBC that he had used a private server the full four years he was at the State Department, in part because of the convenience (same reason Hillary gave) and in part due to the poor qualify of the technology in the State Department. Colin Powell admitted that he had erased all of his e-mails from his four-year tenure. Condoleezza Rice, Powell's successor, also used a private server. Guess how many investigations, hearings, or requests for e-mails the Republican-controlled House or Senate had? NONE, not even for the TWO ATTACKS on the Consulate in Karachi! When asked by the media why no hearings, the same Republicans who have harassed Secretary Clinton over a single attack on a CIA OUTPOST---yes, folks the building in Benghazi was a CIA OUTPOST and the three Navy SEALs were CIA OPERATIVES under the control and jurisdiction of CIA director (and Republican horn dog) General David Petraeus!---HELD NO HEARINGS for any of the 2001-2007 THIRTEEN deadly attacks!
What Congressional Republicans completely ignored is the DIPLOMATIC SUCCESS in Libya by Ambassador Stevens and his boss at State, Hillary Clinton! The night of the Gaddafi loyalists' September 11, 2012 attack, "The Rachel Maddow Show" of MSNBC showed LIVE coverage during and after the violence, and it is the aftermath of the attack that is of interest. The villagers in Benghazi tried to save Ambassador Stevens (who had gotten special permission to use the CIA OUTPOST because the House GOP had (admitted Jason Chaffetz, R-UT) slashed more than $30 million in 2011 and 2012 from the State Department budget...carrying the unconscious Ambassador to their local hospital, but then coming back to hold up handmade signs that read
"We are sorry, America!"; "This is not what Islam is about!"; "We love Ambassador Stevens!"; "We love the United States!" The Libyan people love us. In addition, the Obama administration tracked down the ringleaders of the Benghazi attack on the CIA OUTPOST with the help of Egypt. Two were killed and the mastermind was captured by a covert Delta Forces team, then transported to New York where he is facing the death penalty (see whitehouse.gov).
Hillary Clinton was not allowed to defend herself with the information that it was a CIA OUTPOST because this bit of information was never declassified by the GOP, so she had to take the badgering and bullying on the proverbial "chin"---showing strength, maturity, and intestinal fortitude that a U.S. President needs. Hillary was exonerated by all eight power-abusing dollars-misappropriating GOP-led Benghazi committees and then exonerated again by the Inspector General I. Charles McCullough, whose official memo to Trey Gowdy read, "None of the emails under review had classification or dissemination markings when they were sent or received." Now the registered Republican FBI director James Comey has admitted no crimes were committed. In addition, Comey had to reluctantly admit that the private server used by Secretary Clinton (it was set up for her former-President husband Bill Clinton by his Secret Service detail) was NOT HACKED. The "secure" government server, however, WAS HACKED...TWICE, the most recent time by a high school dropout named Edward Snowden! Thanks to Hillary's wisdom in using a former-President's Secret Service set-up private server, NONE of Hillary's e-mail were included in the TOP SECRET stolen files Snowden took with him to Communist China and then to Russia!
The only CRIMINALS in all this are the Congressional Republicans. We, the American people, should set up a lawsuit to make them PAY US BACK the more than $7,000,000 of misappropriated funds plus interest!

They're not about to tar and feather any American for what happened over there, let alone a candidate for the highest office in the USA.

Media Matters is well recognized to be a left wing support organization, hardly what anyone would consider to be an objective source.

more propaganda ... If there was any proof the Republicans would have brought charges. USA legal system ... innocent until proven guilty. Stop with the propaganda. If there is no real proof shut up.
