As many of you might have heard, the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee released its official Benghazi report on Friday, and it essentially debunked every right-wing conspiracy theory conservatives have been perpetuating about the attack for the last two years.
Then again, unless you’re someone who’s foolish enough to believe that Fox News is a factual source for information, you already knew these right-wing conspiracies were absolute nonsense anyway.
But what this latest report does is it essentially puts to rest all the nonsense Republicans have been pushing since the attack in 2012. After all, what kind of Republican buffoon would continue to push Benghazi conspiracies after a committee led by their own party confirmed that there was no massive intelligence failure or coverup by the Obama administration?
Well, it just so happens that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wants to play the role of that buffoon.
During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, Graham essentially dismissed the Republican-led report, saying it’s “full of crap.”
“No, I’m saying the House Intelligence Committee is doing a lousy job policing their own,” Graham said. “I’m saying that anybody who has followed Benghazi at all knows that the CIA deputy director did not come forward to tell Congress what role he played in changing the talking points. And the only way we knew he was involved is when he told a representative at the White House, I’m going to do a hard review of this, a hard rewrite.”
In other words, because even the Republican-led investigation didn’t support the asinine conspiracies that have been pushed by people like himself, Graham is now dismissing this report until he can dig in deeper to try to discredit the official report of an investigation led by members of his own party.
Basically, because this report didn’t support the b.s. he’s been lying to the American people about for over two years, he’s now accusing Republicans of not trying hard enough to verify his lies. As if these House Republicans didn’t do everything they possibly could to try to find some way to pin the fault of the Benghazi attack on the Obama administration.
Graham’s comments might actually make me angry if they weren’t so pathetically comical.
But this is why I always tell people to never waste their time debating conspiracy theorists – there’s no point. If you debunk their conspiracies, they’ll simply dismiss the evidence that discredits their ridiculous lies as being part of the conspiracy itself. Which is exactly what Graham is doing here.
