Nearly a year after the deadly attacks in Benghazi, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson continues to relentlessly pursue the truth:

Even in the face of an obstructive government:

Let’s hear it for transparency!

Ridiculous. And β€” surprise! β€” the White House isn’t cooperating, either:

“Happy to release photos”? Bull.

Attkisson isn’t doing this just for her; she’s doing it for all of us. We all deserve to know the truth.

Heaven forbid!

Because there is no good reason, except that the Obama administration wants to make sure we stay in the dark about what really happened in Benghazi.

But with regard to Benghazi, there’s no football forΒ Obama to spike.

And so … deafening silence.

            Doing quite well, thank you for asking. I remain in awe of your Disqus posting, good buddy. I’m still a newbie here at Twitchy, but maybe I’ll see you more often over here.

    This isn’t surprising given it took over a month for the FBI to survey the scene and 8 months to release the first pictures of the suspects. But, between the investigating George Zimmerman for a hate crime, spying on reporters, and what not, the FBI just doesn’t have the time or resources to devote to bringing the Benghazi attackers to justice. Besides, Holder’s newest priority is eliminating minimum sentences for drug crimes.

    • David

      For sure and Holder and the DoJ is also busy looking at the clown conspiracy . . .

      • IBXNJ

        To Holder, the American people are nothing more than mushrooms….Kept in the dark and given nothing but bullshit!

    • David

    • Darticus

      Point well taken, but mandatory minimums are ridiculous in any case. It’s right up there with “zero tolerance.”

    The Obamastration is as transparent as a bathroom window!

  • Clete Torres

    Yet if the average American withholds information from the FBI or other Federal agency (or makes a video that allegedly causes spontaneous demonstrations complete with RPGs and heavy machine-guns) they’d be (and are) locked in jail indefinitely.
    Transparent, my ass.

  • Marvin Nelson

    Sharyl, thanks for your bulldog tenacity. Obviously, FBI and WH are stalling because the information is damning to Hillary and BO. We love and appreciate you. Keep up the pressure and the good work!!

    Isn’t it amazing that she’s out there alone as a broadcast journalist, picking away at this obvious cover-up?

    • David

      It’s not amazing at all. It’s outright collusion of the press and Obama. They will cover for him and his democrat criminals at all costs.

      I’ve got it! Let’s just make up what Obama and Clinton were doing Sept 11 and put out as the truth. Nature hates a vacuum and we can fill it up. Right? What difference could it make now?

    Actually why can’t anyone just ask for the information? Isn’t this supposed to be for anyone to be able to ask? If so why don’t we just start lighting up the switchboards continuously? 1 voice may not be heard, but thousands upon thousands would make quite a noise.

    One must realize these investigations are complex and take a lot of time.

    Examples:

    Remember how long it took Obama to speak out about that Gates guy and the policeman. He was careful not to say anything that would be prejudicial . . . ooh wait a second, that’s not what happened.
    Okay, how about this one? When Mr. Zimmerman shot Travon Martin, Obama refused to speak out as he did not want to say anything that would be prejudicial . . . hmmm, somehow that doesn’t seem to be what happened.
    Let me take another stab at this. Obama kept his mouth shut on the butchery at Benghazi as he did not want to blame a video for this obscene attack on American interests when he would spend every minute trying to find the perpetrators . . .

    This isn’t working out real well is it?
    I go out of my way to defend the pretend president and I just get myself into a mess . . .

    This is because any info would hamper Hill’s coronation as well as contradict the official story. Something about a video, but what difference does it make now.

    As an aside whoever debates hill in the 2016 race needs to continually use this line when ever hill goes on the attack, ” what difference does it make now”

    Last night on CBS Evening News, I saw Sharyl for the first time since May when she was summarily pulled off reporting on the IRS or NSA hearings. She was covering some insignificant human interest story and introduced something like “Our next report is from Sharyl Attkisson, [our puppies and kittens reporter – or something similarly demeaning]”.

    She has been a tenacious seeker of truth regarding Fast & Furious and Benghazi – alone among the MSM network reporters. What CBS has done to diminish her role and her strong investigative journalist reputation is shameful.

    Two years ago I submitted an on-line FOIA request to the DOD regarding Army medical training for combat medics. After months of hearing nothing, I received a letter in the mail addressed to me stating that since the ZIP Code I entered in my on-line request was in error (I transposed two digits) they could not process my request. (Note that the envelope carrying the rejection letter had the correct ZIP Code on it.)

    I resubmitted my request with my correct ZIP code and never heard from the DOD again. The miracle of the most transparent administration evah!

  • Suzyqpie

    SOP, Jay carney, ” We can’t comment until the investigation is complete.” Then conduct no investigation. Then say, “Oh that was a long time ago.” End of story, go away you are inconvenient and do not fit our narrative and as long as the MSM is covering for us, you STFU. Oh, and have a happy life we have power you do not.

  • tops116

    So, it’s a phony scandal, but they refuse to release any information? Yeah, that’s reassuring.

    • AmericanMom

      It’s as phony as Obama himself. No White House tours but millions on his lavish vacations. How many people who lost jobs in the past few years could have used a few thousand of those dollars to keep their families above water financially? Partying with liberal donors Carly Simon and Larry David, now that’s the real Obama priority.

    They’re not going to release any photos of Obama the night of Benghazi because he was dead drunk and partying on HIS national holiday – 9/11.
