Dem Rep Castro slams Issa; calls year-long Benghazi probe ‘a fairy tale’

You’ve heard the Obama administration and the liberal left call the deadly terrorist attack in Benghazi a “phony scandal” and a “false controversy,” but now one Democratic congressman has called the year-long House investigation into the events that night a “fairy tale.”

U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, joined in the fray Sunday on “Meet the Press” over the New York Times’ bombshell, albeit whitewashed report, that revisited the idea that an anti-Islamic video fueled the attack on the U.S. Special Mission in September 2012.

Castro, buying into the Times’ nonsense, slammed Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and others for spending a year “crusad[ing] on what was really a fairy tale” – that al-Qaida was behind the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Proving he lives in a grim, liberal, fairy tale world himself, he said:

I hope that Chairman Issa and others have learned a lesson from this. Chairman Issa and members of that committee crusaded for over a year on what was really a fairy tale, claiming that the administration knew that al-Qaida was involved and wouldn’t admit it.

But the important thing is that Susan Rice and the administration were trying their best to level with the American people, and some of the information that came out early, although it may have been wrong, that was their best effort. Darrell Issa and others took that and crusaded against the administration in a way that I think has been a big distraction for the American people.
