    into this this matter with the help of my crack investigative staff (HappyinNM.)

    My comprehensive report is as follows:

    Background:
    John McCain and Lindsey Graham are grandstanding buffoons attempting to create a media storm.

    Investigation into Facts:

    - Transcript -
    GREGORY:  ….  Can you say definitively that the attacks on-- on our consulate in Libya that killed ambassador Stevens and others there security personnel, that was spontaneous, was it a planned attack?  Was there a terrorist element to it?

    MS. RICE:  …. But putting together the best information that we have available to us today our current assessment is that what happened in Benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo, almost a copycat of-- of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video.  What we think then transpired in Benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding.  They came with heavy weapons which unfortunately are readily available in post revolutionary Libya.  And it escalated into a much more violent episode.

    Conclusion:
    John McCain and Lindsey Graham are grandstanding buffoons attempting to create a media storm.

    Recommended Actions:
    Call out McCain and Graham at every opportunity.
