House votes to create new Benghazi investigation

WASHINGTON — The House has voted to establish a new investigation of the deadly assault in Benghazi, Libya, with Republicans vowing to dig deeper in a search for truth.

Democrats say the election-year inquiry is actually a political ploy to raise campaign cash and motivate GOP voters, and they're weighing a boycott.

The vote Thursday was 232-186.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission.

Republicans accuse the Obama administration of misleading the American people about the nature of the attack during a presidential campaign and stonewalling multiple congressional inquiries.

Of course they will. Carl Rove ordered it. Always good to rally the base using taxpayer money. Why else would we shuttle 535 members and their staff back and forth. It's not like it is costing the GOP anything. It's FREE campaigning. Then they get the media to report on it which is FREE campaigning. Then the GOP candidates will attach it to their resume and mail it out on using taxpayer postage because it is FREE campaigning.

Here we go again, just like White Water, travel gate, Vince Foster, Obamacare, Fast and Furious and nothing found.
