Well, Well, Isn't This a Surprise

From the New York Times, the following news:

"Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault. The attack was led, instead, by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi. And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam."

So, in keeping with right wing tradition, Republicans have battered the Obama Administration for over a year, based on complete falsehoods.  Their normal propensity for devastating the truth was not hampered in the least by the most vital issues of national security.

I wonder if anyone will have the decency to demand an account of how much Darryl Issa and his collaborators knew, as they tried to destroy the President of the United States and drive him from office, based on lies, distortions and smears.  But of course, the people who shouted down anyone who found objectionable the filthy racist and homophobic rants of one of their own, will not give a damn at this seditious undermining of our government, by elected representatives.

This is a country being eaten away from within, and no one seems to care.

Meanwhile, the newest Right-Wign Hero Phil Robertson has advocated child molestation since at least 2009,

“Look, you wait ‘til they get to be 20-years-old and the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they’re about fifteen or sixteen and they’ll pick your ducks.”

Without Rape Republicans would never have sex.

I love the fact that the "Times" released its report when a good many conservative "reporters" and commentators are likely on holiday -- oops, Christmas -- vacation. Of course the ones who are still at their posts are scrambling to deny the story because it challenges a body of mythology that now forms a major chunk of the wingnut cult bible.
