    Charles Krauthammer: 'The Clock Has Run Out On Benghazi'

    The Huffington Post | by Catherine Taibi | Posted: 04/10/2014 11:59 am EDT
    Excerpts:

    "Charles Krauthammer declared that the Benghazi investigation "is done" and that time has run out for Republicans to get the answers they want.

    "Politically speaking, the administration has won," Krauthammer said on Fox News Channel's 'Special Report' Wednesday. "They ran out the clock."

    The Washington Post columnist was referring to the recent efforts of Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), John McCain (R-Ariz.)and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.)who pushed for a renewed investigation by a special committee into the September 2012 deadly assault on the US consulate in Benghazi.

    Krauthammer said Wednesday that "it's too late" for a special committee as proposed by the three Republican senators, and argued that if there had been a select committee from the beginning then "we would have gotten to the bottom of this."

    But now Krauthammer seems to suggest that the administration has 'gotten away with it,' emphasizing that such an investigation "should have been a year ago, three, four more months ago," but time has officially run out.

    "Unfortunately you only have a certain amount of time, a certain amount of attention," he said. "The clock has run out on Benghazi."

    ......

    IMO: Well, we should give proper respect to the "Scandal without A Motive"...the trumped up lies t5hat republicans tried to make into a major scandal, when the House Oversight Committee was the direct cause of the attack by refusing multiple requests for funds to have extra security in Benghazi!! The true scandal is with the House Oversight Committee in their refusal to authorize more troops for the safety of the Embassy and our troops there.

    The attack that killed 4 people are a direct result of Issa and Company refusing to give the help requested multiple times for the safety of everyone stationed at the Embassy. Why hasn't there been an inquiry as to Issa's Committee motivations in refusing to provide the necessary funds for the safety of America's own troops?

    The lives of those fallen in the attack on the Embassy rightfully lies at the feet of Issa and Company!! THAT is the scandal.

    Just time to hit the snooze button until Hillary announces her candidacy, that's all. The clock will never run out on Americans that still expect accountability from those in power...

    Has anyone investigated the Egyptian Interim Govt's claim that the Muslim Brotherhood had a direct link with Benghazi? It is odd that the problem in Libya was proceeded by the demonstration and breaching of the Embassy's walls in Cairo. And the black flag of Al Queda was raised in the courtyard of our embassy

    Yep! Raise your glasses high, Libs -- the Obama regime lied, mislead, stonewalled, and the hyperliberal "news" media ignored the whole nauseating, disgusting thing. Your next presidential candidate, Hillary, got conveniently incapacitated when answers were demanded of her, and everyone gave her a pass. So, hey, the radical faction of the Libocrat Party got away with a big one.

    The net-net of it: After illegally breaking the War Powers Act in 2011 and overthrowing a government we were at peace with in Libya, the Obama regime stupidly allowed Islamo-Nazis to infiltrate it and fill the vacuum caused by this regime-change. The Islamo-Nazis mounted a pre-planned, orchestrated attack on our Consulate, sodomized, tortured, and murdered our Ambassador, and murdered three other Americans who had tried to come to his aid. Your wonderous President Transparency and the idiots who do his bidding did NOTHING to prevent it, NOTHING to STOP IT, and afterward, NOTHING to keep things like this from happening again.

    Even if you couldn't care less about the poor bastards who died in Benghazi because of complete Obama regime negligence and lies, at the 40,0000-foot level do you think for a minute that this whole thing has gone unnoticed by China? By Russia? By Iran? By North Korea? By dozens of other countries that hate our guts but take our money?

    But, hey, Dr. Krauthammer is right, and the hyperliberal Left has won on the "issue" of Benghazi. For all of you who revel in this victory -- congratulations! You're just that much closer to your goal of a dissolute, demoralized, ruined America, featuring liars and idiots to run our foreign policy.... :cheerleader:

    Thanks, it feels good to win this one. The Battle of Benghazi is a decisive victory for the liberals. I remember when Mitt Romney tried to bring Benghazi up during the second debate and Obama owned him. Romney, smartly, never brought up Benghazi again

    Agreed concerning Romney. The RINO Republicans have quite literally allowed the Obama regime to get away with murder at Benghazi. RINO cowardice is almost as nauseating as deliberate lies and callous manipulation in the Democrats has been.

    "Democrats just memorize Mao's little red book. "

    the fact that you blame the left clearly shows you have no clue as to how gov works. The blame is Issa's and he aint of the left.

    funny how so many of those expecting accountabilty only expect it from the other party.

    The clock didn't run out on benghazi, it ran out of places to look for the non-existent smoking gun.

    OK, splaining. An expression "to get away with murder" does not mean Obama administration committed murder at Benghazi. For further splanation, refer to an idiom dictionary or another.

    Not the way I see it.

    Issa had nothing to do with the Obama/Hillary screw ups before, during and after the attacks.

    Obama was not even interested in the attack while it was taking place

    For him the whole incident was political.

    Why is that in a year and a half we have no suspects in custody?

    I can answer this; can you?

    I'm still waiting on the special committee investigation back in 1983; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_Beirut_barracks_bombing When are McCain, Graham, and Ayotte going to request that investigation where security breaches occurred?

    Yes, the usual reckless language from the American Taliban. Nothing to see here...move along.

    No black president in charge = no investigation.

    Correction- The rest of us Americans have refused to get sucked in to the con's partisan and incredibly dishonest and anti-American hysteria on Benghazi, which is fuelled in large part by their abject terror of Hillary's dominance as a potus contender in 2016.

    If you people were in the least bit interested in the truth, you would have grilled Issa's committee about their partisan obstructionism instead of doing their duty and providing for the security of State department locations and personnel, and spent as much time hounding Bush for all of the embassy attacks that occurred during his watch.
    You're not fooling anybody with these dishonest partisan hysterics about Benghazi.

    Hell, they should have also investigated why Reagan then went and invaded Grenada for no reason other than to distract from his failure in Beirut.
