GOP Benghazi Committee Chairman admits on live TV that ‘nothing could be done’ to stop the attack

There are a number of right wing conspiracy theories surrounding the September 11, 2012 attack on our diplomatic facility and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. One of the most popular being that the military could have responded faster to the attack in order to save lives but was ordered not to do so by the Obama Administration — a theory so popular that an inquiry was launched on Capitol Hill.

There are a number of versions, and two of them involve either President Obama or Hillary Clinton personally ordering the military to “stand down” rather than rescue the Americans who were under attack.

Earlier this week in a letter from two House Democrats to Rep. Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican who chairs the select committee looking into the Benghazi attack, it was revealed that the GOP’s own chief investigator, Army Lt. Gen. Dana Chipman, acknowledged during the investigation that nothing “could have been done differently to affect the outcome in Benghazi.”

In an interview with Fox News, Gowdy confirmed this stance and said:

“Whether or not they could have gotten there in time, I don’t think there is any issue with respect to that — they couldn’t.”

Over two years and $6.9 million have been spent asking the same questions about Benghazi, and receiving the same answers. It is perhaps time for the investigation to be put to rest.
