The beating of a dead horse.

Somehow, the Republicans do not understand the phrase, "Al-Qaeda is on the run," or interpreting it to mean that the killing of Osama Bin Laden will be the end of his organization.

That statement is to describe the situation of Al-Qaeda, soon after the death of its leader by the Obama administration; and that must never be misconstrued in any way as meaning that the demise of one person, however important he may be, will culminate in stopping a movement which is religious in nature.

Muslims believe that Islam is a doctrine, which everyone on earth must submit to; and the Prophet Mohammad is the true representative of Allah, their God.

Therefore, there is nothing that can change that ideology; and the Western world pretending that it (doctrine) will dissipate or evaporate into thin air one day, will be deceiving itself and everybody else. It, doctrine, will continue until its ultimate objective is achieved; and that is converting every person to Islam.

Furthermore, the Obama administration has never said that, Al-Qaeda has been "decimated", as the Republicans have been telling the American people.

That word has never appeared anywhere, verbally or in any statement made by the Democratic leadership. So, that showed the group that was misleading the general public, by putting words in other people's mouths.

The beef that many people have is the Republicans saying that the video that has led to demonstrations around the globe on 9/11/2012 in many Muslim countries, has nothing to do with the Benghazi attack(s). Yet, they refuse to say what has caused them (attacks).

In other words, they are telling the rest of the world that Libya, and therefore Benghazi, is not an Islamic country or part of the Muslim world; and that the people there "couldn't care less" about the Prophet Mohammad, who happens to be the subject of the video and has been insulted in that tape. What?

The coincidence of the two events, the "demonstrations" and the "Benghazi attack(s)", happening concurrently will be considered as very strange, as one not relating to the other.

Now, the Republicans have a Congressional Select Committee in the offing to "investigate Benghazi" once again; though several investigatory bodies in the same U.S. Congress are known to have been doing their best to find fault. They have all arrived at the same conclusion that further "investigation" would be like beating a dead horse.

If the Republicans will accept the truth about Benghazi, and also tell the truth about how it has occurred, rather than attempting to confuse the American people regarding the death of four of their countrymen, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his three colleagues, who have lost their lives serving their beloved country, the U.S.A., everybody will breathe a sigh of relief.

Benghazi is a tragedy that must not happen again. The solution is not to make it into a political controversy; but to find a way to stop it from happening anywhere else.

      Would the U.S. Congress hold seven investigatory committee hearings, reaching the same results, and then asking for a Select Committee to investigate those hearing results? That is what is happening here.

      The ball now is not in the Obama administration's court; but that of the present Libyan government; to arrest those responsible for the Benghazi attack and bring them to justice.

      Best of all, the perpetrators must end up in the hands of the U.S. Government. That must be what the Republicans agree to do.

      In the interest of the dead diplomats and their families, the U.S. government and Congress have the obligation to request that demand from the Libyan government.

      It seems your sentiment is right on the money. But I disagree with the practical application. The policies behind what allowed the catastrophe are at the heart of Hilary. What you refer to as conclusions are more press and democratic spin than reality. If Hilary as head of DOS did a great job, she should welcome the attention.

      I completely agree with you, Emmanuel. We must learn from Benghazi. The Republicans are scared to death of Hillary Clinton and are desperately trying to demonize her in any way they can. It is just that simple.
