What difference does it make anyway?
If you were expecting big things from the Republican landslide in November, don’t hold your breath. Instead of holding Obama accountable for one of the biggest cover-ups in American history, Republicans just gave him a free pass. And their promise to “defund and reverse Obamacare”? I think you now know what that is going to play out.
The Republicans are just as much liars and cheats as are the Democrats. Nothing is going to change, but it certainly will get worse. Hillary was right when she said “what difference does it make, anyway?” Obviously, it makes no difference at all.

Debunking a series of persistent allegations hinting at dark conspiracies, the two-year investigation of the politically charged incident determined that there was no intelligence failure, no delay in sending a CIA rescue team, no missed opportunity for a military rescue, and no evidence the CIA was covertly shipping arms from Libya to Syria.
In the immediate aftermath of the attack, intelligence about who carried it out and why was contradictory, the report found. That led Susan Rice, then U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, to inaccurately assert that the attack had evolved from a protest, when in fact there had been no protest.
