Republicans Continue to Flog Dead Horse Called Benghazi

(Washington, DC) – Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) announced the creation of a Web site linked from the Republican Party’s Web site on the topic of Benghazi. The Web site provides documents, videos, testimonies, and other pertinent information about what Republicans see as a cover-up by President Obama’s (D-IL/Kenya) administration.

On September 11, 2011, terrorists attacked two United States compounds in Benghazi, Libya, killing four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. The State Department, run at the time by Hillary Clinton (R-NY), is largely criticized for the incident.

“This Web site will provide information to average, ordinary, everyday Americans about the terrorist attack on our compounds in Benghazi,” said a Boehner spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity. “We are committed to nothing but the truth on the matter, and we don’t care how long we have to hammer Democrats on this issue. Nothing is more important to our country than uncovering the truth.”

“We know that average, ordinary, everyday Americans would rather delve into the details – many of which the White House refuses to discuss – instead of focusing on how the Republican agenda has held back job creation and economic growth, all in the name of shaming that Kenyan in the White House,” said a Republican spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity.

House Democrats decried the creation of the Web site, calling it an unfortunate way to keep the true Republican agenda out of sight and out of mind of Americans. Democrats also see the Web Site as a way to put pressure on Clinton, who is seen as a possible presidential candidate for the 2016 election.

In response, Democrats have launched a Web site of their own, linked from the Democratic Party’s Web site. Their Web site’s topic is the August 6, 2001, memo, “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US,” which was ignored at the time by former President George W. Bush and his national security advisor, Condoleezza Rice. One month later, Osama bin Laden’s minions of death attacked the United States with four airplanes, destroying the Twin Towers in New York and damaging the Pentagon in Virginia.

“It’s time the truth came out about this issue,” said a Democratic spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Even though it happened over 12 years ago, we’ve never stopped seeking information to support truth, justice, and the American way. Average, ordinary, everyday Americans deserve no more and no less.”
