Senator Burr Releases Statement on the Intelligence Committee’s Bipartisan Benghazi Report

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEWednesday, January 15, 2014 CONTACT:Phone: Rachel Hicks(202) 228-1616

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement regarding the Intelligence Committee’s bipartisan report on the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

“Today the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence released the most detailed, bipartisan report to date on the September 11, 2011, terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

The committee’s report presents a wide range of declassified findings that will allow the public to more fully understand the deteriorating security situation in Benghazi leading up to the attacks, and the lack of State Department recognition of the danger to our personnel.

This bipartisan report is a step forward in our understanding of these events, but should not by any means be viewed as a final verdict.  To the extent this report is incomplete, it is not due to the Committee’s unwillingness to investigate, but the State Department’s intransigence.  It is our obligation and duty to continue to ask probing questions and investigate all details as they continue to come to light – as they invariably will.

Despite the Committee’s best efforts to investigate all relevant threads of information, I still feel strongly that there remains a disappointing lack of accountability. It is my hope that this bipartisan report will serve as a foundation to continue the discussion and search for answers.”

  1. The problem with America is there have been so many DAILY scandals with this corrupt Cabal in Washington that we seem to have grown IMMUNE to them…We are accepting them as NORMAL for our government.

    We seem to have reach a point where we EXPECT a new bombshell every day…and if we don’t get it, we are disappointed…’s kind of like the “citizens of Rome who fed on the blood of the Christians every day in the crazed games they played”…We seem to fed on the corruption that is daily coming out of the cesspool in Washington….if we don’t get it, something is wrong with them, not us! At least that seems to be our attitude..

    Yet on the other hand, our courageous and informative national media has no problem in sacrificing a politician in New Jersey over a TRAFFIC JAM that he may or may not have caused…..Please don’t take this as my endorsement of Christie …because I don’t!

    It is only said to show the great difference in how the press covers the “democrat” and “republican” news. One party can commit high TREASON and read about the watered down version on page eight of the paper….and the other party can cause a TRAFFIC JAM and get investigated by the Department of Justice with possible jail time…and more front page news coverage than Benghazi ever got, or ever will get..

    Something wrong in America my friends…….amazingly wrong..

  3. Allen West Goes Nuclear: Obama “Abjectly Despises” Whites, He And Holder “Are The Most Vile And Disgusting Racists”…

    When the concept of doing a website was presented to me, initially I scoffed thinking there wouldn’t be enough critical material daily to comment on — boy was I wrong. Every day I am amazed at the insanity I witness in our America and here is another example.

    According to a report in The Hill, Attorney General Eric Holder is at it again with his racial preference policies,

  4. From that article I just linked to above from Allen West:

    This is my clear and succinct message to white Americans. How long will it be before “you people” realize you have elevated someone to the office of president who abjectly despises you — not to mention his henchman Holder. Combined they are the most vile and disgusting racists — not you.

  6. I like this quote……

    Translation….you don’t know who’s bluffing until all the cards are on the table.

    The behavior of Obama and his minions is so outrageous that Americans are becoming desensitized to the scandals. Whenever we hear of a new scandal, most people think of it as business as usual. Even murder is desensitized in this way. The value on human life in America is sorely diminished. Even when we hear about a suspicious death, we don’t know what to do. The deaths are shocking; but, we’re not surprised.

    The behavior of Obama and his minions is so outrageous that Americans are becoming desensitized to the scandals.
    How true, and THAT is also part of the Obama “plan”! After all, most of us have a life to live, a living to make, loved ones who depend on us, demanding duties, etc. It is next to impossible for the average person who loves his country to effectively counter the outrageous behavior, and our representatives have basically let us down.

    Often we get e-mails admonishing us patriots to “take our country back”, and most of the senders want money to finance their operations. They say, “It’s up to you!” Folks, I’m not certain it is going to happen that way.
    Obama is pledged to run pell mell over whatever is left of Congress, and no one seems to know how to stop him.

    Obama Bails Out Insurers

    One of the least publicized aspects of ObamaCare is its bailout of insurance companies. Far from warring against them, as Hillary Clinton did in 1993, the Obama program is their new best friend.

    Robert Laszewski, a healthcare consultant, points out that ObamaCare is really a giant reinsurance program, capping the liability of health insurance companies. Under its provisions, the first $45,000 of payments to an insured patient come from the company’s coffers. The taxpayer, through the federal government, then obligingly will pick up 80 percent of the remainder.

    In addition, insurance companies are to estimate their payouts during the coming 12 months every year. If they miss, or the costs are greater than they supposed, the feds will pick up 80 percent of the overage. It is a kind of cost-plus deal for insurance companies.

    All told, insurance companies are to get $1 trillion in subsidies over the next 10 years, a staggering amount of tax money. They will make out far better than General Motors, defense contractors or any TARP recipient banks.

    For more disgusting details:

  10. “An autopsy was conducted on Fuddy shortly after the crash, but the cause of death was initially deferred.”

    Anybody read this before?

  11. “Extgremely important: who and when authorized no TSA screening for Macani Kai air terminal at Kalaupapa from where Fuddy flew?”

    “Will I have to go through TSA screening?
    No. Boarding the aircraft couldn’t be simpler: you simply show up and go to the aircraft. There are no lines, no one with a wand, and no one will open your suitcase. Bring as much shampoo as you want.

    Can I bring hazardous materials?
    Our pilots and ground crew are specially trained to handle hazardous materials such as medical items, biological specimens and the like. Please call us ahead of time to discuss your particular situation.”

  12. CitizenWells: “An autopsy was conducted on Fuddy shortly after the crash, but the cause of death was initially deferred.”
    “Cause of death was a cardiac arrythmia”

    Funny how the cause of death is impossible to prove at autopsy, unless you can find evidence of acute myocardial infarction. Interestingly, lethal injection involves high dose of potassium which causes ‘cardiac arrythmias”. Still waiting for final autopsy, but looks less iike ‘accident’.

    Plamegate Update: American Thinker fails to disclose conflicts of interest!

  14. CW…….
    I believe you probably have a really big anger going right now with the USURPER in CHIEF being in your state spewing his BULLSHI#. I would probably be pi$$ed off for a week if it was me, and that BASTARD entered my state. I see Msssss.Kagan even stayed away. Is she a Democrat? RM is in another part of your state,but I doubt if he is in a very good frame of mind today either. I sympathise with both of you. Now you have a lot of manure to clean up.

  15. Interested Bystander

    Hey All,

    I pointed out a couple weeks ago that there is NO connection between second hand smoke and ANY kind of illness.

    Now the “good” people of our Country are outlawing e-cigarettes.

    This is a joke.

    Welcome to freedom:

    This kind of crap has got to stop. It is NOT the Government’s responsibility to “look out” for it’s citizens.

    I have commented before, and I’ll do it many more times, but the way we are today, is exactly why we HATED the Soviet Union, and rallied the masses to force out their suppressive form of Government and replace it.

    I HOPE that we have the same fate, but it is my hope that the reason won’t be because of an outside force, but because the PEOPLE got sick and tired of our LIBERTIES being taken away.

    There is not ONE “good” reason to ban these e-cigarettes. People should be free to use them anywhere the owner of the property allows them to be used. As far as that goes, regular cigarettes should be allowed wherever the owner of the property says they can be smoked.

    But yet they still ban them “for the safety of the air and our children”.

    That is complete and utter bovine excrement.

    When will we learn?

  16. Whistleblower………
    There is NEVER a conflict of interest, UP becomes DOWN, and VOILA no more conflict. Har har

  17. Oldsailor81….

    Frankly, I didn’t even know the bastard was in town !!! (or cared ).

  18. Here’s what the EU has done to Ireland……

    One brave reporter ask questions that the EU banker would not answer…..

  19. RMINNC……
    Yeah,the usurper was in your state today,and telling everybody that UP is DOWN,and it LOOKS as though all of the bystanders,are swallowing the shi# he is serving up. I don’t know which city he was visiting. Senator Kagan didn’t even show up…….is she a democrat,or republican?

  22. Good Morning CW, et. al. –

  23. Good morning Zach, CW et al,

    Wow!, Wow! and Wow! A must watch video. I couldn’t have said it better. I am going to start visiting this man’s site and support him. If I remember correctly, he is a medical Doctor, and he’s pissed. As well as correct.


  24. This is the video I wanted to post. Don’t know why that other one posted.

  25. Ok, it’s going to go through the play list. It’s the third video after the first 2 play I was referring too. Obama with a pen….

  26. Good morning Zach, William, et al.

  27. Gee, what a surprise..Included in the Congressional report on Benghazi was this little tidbit:
    The report also noted, chillingly, that the FBI’s investigation of the attacks has been hampered in Libya and that 15 people “supporting the investigation or otherwise helpful to the United States” have since been killed in Benghazi. The report said it was unclear whether those killings were related to the inquiry.

  28. I wonder if they caught a case of the “arkansas flu” or Obamaitis, either way, they won’t be testifying. Threatened, harrassed or eliminated, that’s the new era of Washington politics!


    Making efficient use of UP and DOWN.
    Remember those beer ads where different sides would chant back and
    forth to each other…….TASTES GREAT !…………..LESS FILLING !…….?
    I propose we profer something similar and take it to other message boards
    across the web, for entertainment purposes only, of course.

    The useful idiots can chant PUT UP ! to show their support that the rest of
    us should PUT UP with Obama because he an intellectual and genuine nice guy you would enjoy having a beer with.

    The well reasoned, seasoned and informed amongst us could chant back
    PUT DOWN ! showing our concerted disapproval, and showing our belief that Obama deserves a…..a……ah……ahhhhhhh PUT DOWN.
    Vote/chant below, please.

  30. Obama FBI Closed Case on IRS Targeting Scandal Before Interviewing Single One of 292 Targeted Groups
    The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

    At least 292 conservative groups
    At least 5 pro-Israel groups
    Constitutional groups
    Groups that criticized Obama administration
    At least two pro-life groups
    A Texas voting-rights group
    Conservative activists and businesses
    At least one conservative Hispanic group
    IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed

    The Obama FBI will not file charges against the IRS for targeting conservative groups.
    And the FBI never interviewed a single conservative group before closing the case.

    American Center for Law & Justice Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow joined America’s Newsroom today to discuss the government’s IRS Tea Party targeting scandal. Sekulow told Bill Hemmer not one of his clients had ever been contacted by the FBI.

  31. Welcome to the 21st Century.
