Sen. Harry Reid blames GOP for spreading ‘constant stream of falsehoods’ on Benghazi

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who distinguished himself throughout the presidential campaign by claiming some guy told him Mitt Romney might not have paid his taxes, keeps calling on Democrats and Republicans to “turn away from divisions of the past” and cooperate. Next year, maybe? For now, Reid is keeping partisanship open for business, especially when it comes to Benghazi.

Sen. John McCain has called for the formation of a Senate select committee to investigate the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Libya which killed four Americans, and Reid today sent McCain a long letter with a very blunt message: “I refuse to allow the Senate to be used as a venue for baseless partisan attacks.” Well, then. We thought the attacks in question had taken place in Benghazi, but Reid is more concerned with providing cover for Democrats in Washington. Besides, what’s the point? Reid wrote further, “The elections are over; it is time to put aside the partisan politicization of national security.”

As the CIA and Pentagon finally release their official timelines of Sept. 11 and Gen. David Petraeus and others testify, it is looking more and more like there has been a constant stream of falsehoods, but not from the GOP.

One point of progress: in his letter, Reid seems to have acknowledged that Amb. Susan Rice’s “blame the video” carpet bombing of television news programs was part of that stream of “Republican” falsehoods.

    Harry Reid wouldn’t recognize a fact even if it was wrapped in a bribe.

    Here’s a direct link to petition for select committee, pass it on.

      I signed it and sent the letters to the POoTUS, Sen. Reid, Sen. Heller, and Rep. Berkeley. I only expect a response from Republican Sen. Heller, though. My last letter I sent about the budget not being passed only garnered a form lettered response from Sen. Heller in snail mail which was thoughtful and hopeful. Rep. Berkeley sent an auto E-mail saying she was basically too busy to read my E-mail, and Sen. Reid has yet to give any response at all months later. Obama will surely not give any form letter response.

    The Obama has not released info about Benghazi! The GOP had to pry to get it. And when info was released, it conflicted w/ the previous info. It keeps getting bigger and bigger!

    • http://twitter.com/mister8nine Emmanuel Stubbe

      the info is being kept secret for a good reason, if you would actually know something about the case you wouldn’t pretend to be so offended

  • digitalPimple

    Well, there is one way to found out correct? A select committee. Duh Reid. How is it people like this are in our government?

      They lie and cheat?

    At this stage it would be impossible for the Republicans to misrepresent the facts because absolutely no one in the Obama Administration has come clean about the facts.

      Exactly! The only people I know for sure who have spread falsehoods are the President and his administration.

      indeed and there is a very good reason for that, so stop being so paranoid

    liberals never make fun of Harry Reid’s magic Mormon underwear.. I wonder why?

      They don’t do that because it might draw attention to the millions he’s scammed on land deals in Nevada.

        The millions are stashed IN Harry Reid’s magic Mormon underwear. No one’s going there!

    Is this the same Harry Reid that said he WOULD NEVER WORK WITH ROMNEY IF ELECTED that now wants co operation.. lying hypocrite

    • Elaine

      My REVENGE will be to work as hard as I can for any Republican running for the Senate in 2014! Taking the gavel from dirty Harry’s senile little hand would give me great pleasure, plus it would render Obama powerless! Take back the Senate in 2014, that would be revenge with a capital “R” Never give up.

  • Catchance

    Is this the same Harry Reid who’s been rated ‘Pants On Fire’ several times? The same Harry Reid who won’t disclose his own dirty deals but claims Romney didn’t file tax returns?

    Would Harry Reid walk away from an investigation into Iran Contra if he had been a senator back then? I don’t think so…..

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/555HP3NPFJ2E7MRU4CZUN7GSEU James H

    Republicans have somehow allowed the Democrats to simply accuse them of everything they themselves are doing. I guess it helps to have the media backing you up ala Candy Crowley in debate number 2. Regardless, have to push back with every opportunity. Sitting silently by is not working.

  • riddler1620

    Remind me why the Valerie Plame story was so important to democrats again? Last I checked no one died there. Here we have 4 American dead and good old Harry says to keep on walking, nothing to see here. Harry Reid is a vile man who cares nothing for people who get in the way of his political agenda.

  • patrick lynch

    could we petition to have them all impeached after of course we get answers for Benghazi and fast and furious

    Senator Reid, if Republicans have misrepresented the facts, then this must mean that YOU know what the facts are. Care to share them with US, the American People?

    Harry Reid is the poster geezer for the cancer that has infested our process of electing representatives to Congress. He is a lying, corrupt, narrow minded, bigoted self serving political hack.
    And those are his good qualities.

    Harry Reid can go FACT himself.

  • Jack Deth

    I’m confused:

    How can one misrepresent ‘facts’ when the flow and timing of those same revealed ‘facts’ are being controlled by the liberal, DNC owned and operated ‘media’?

    Maybe Harry should get his ‘facts’ straight before embarrassingly opening his pie hole?

  • RAllison

    Harry Reid would not recognize the truth if he met it head-on! He’s a disgrace to America and that for which it stands. Being the servant of Unions bosses, progressive liberals, and wannabe socialists is not a very high recommendation. To whom does Harry Reid pledge his loyalty? Only Harrry Reid and God know for sure; others are taken in by the misinformation that flows from his dishonest mouth. God will judge Harry Reid.

    Quotes by Dingy Harry Reid:
    ——————-
    “I can’t stand John McCain.”

    “We found ourselves in a hole that I didn’t dig, but I have dug, dug and dug to try to get out of that hole.” (Note: Most people when finding themselves in a hole quit digging)

    “to investigate whether Bush administration
    officials misused intelligence.”
    ———————–
    These are just three there’s more and more then there’s more after that.

    That’s funny Harry, I always thought Ambassador Rice was the one that was spreading a lot of falsehoods on Benghazi. Even if Benghazi hearings go nowhere, it still shows incompetence by the people running the current Administration. You don’t look like an attack dog Harry, just more senile than Biden.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Oh, hooray for the Senate Obstructionist leader! What is Stinky Reid so afraid of, in appointing a select committee? He’s afraid of something…

    McCain walked out of a classified meeting about Benghazi, but now all of a sudden he is interested and he wants a senate committee? by the way, Petraeus testified (yes he did, so much for any crazy conspiracy cover up theorists) that the government was intentionally vague about the nature of the Benghazi attack ,as not to tip off the terrorists as to how much US intelligence knew about them. This a common law enforcement tactic. Keep them in the dark. They put out disinformation before the WWII normandy invasion and it worked. You would think the republicans would get it’s a decoy. I guess they are only capable of making insults without any real argument, or they are just to stupid to grasp what it’s all about, they just willingly ignore the logical explanation for all this

    I just disproved all of your paranoid ramblings, you can all go to sleep now and start ranting again when the next “conspiracy” surfaces, while you wait for the supposed downfall of democracy and you can finally use your beloved guns on the so called “tyrant”, our President.

    A source I cannot name informed me that Harry Reid ordered the attack on Benghazi and has bribed everyone to cover it up.

    Now he must prove otherwise.

    Was everyone around for Watergate? Nixon had just been re-elected in a landslide and looked invincible. Then, several years later, after some heaven sent leaks, he was gone. Pray the same thing happens now. Yeah, I know, almost the entire news media then lent a hand to expose him. All we have now is FOX News. Let’s also pray they’re enough.

  • lcky9
