Trey Gowdy Still Tracking Down Benghazi Conspiracy Theories


Via Steve Benen, I see that the Pentagon is finally getting a little fed up with Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi investigation:

Gowdy’s “nonpartisan” investigators are apparently still obsessed with tracking down idiotic conspiracy theories that originate in Facebook posts, radio shows, and other corners of the right-wing fever swamp. They seem to be convinced, even now, that the military deliberately chose not to respond to the Benghazi attacks even though they could have. Why would they do this? Who knows. Because they were acting under orders from the secretary of state, to whom they had sworn a secret blood oath? It’s just the kind of thing Hillary would do, isn’t it? And by God, the truth is out there. Eventually Trey Gowdy will get to it.
