Howdy-Gowdy!!!! House Democrats release their own Benghazi report

The Democrats, like previous congressional investigations, fault weak security at the U.S. facility in Benghazi, and military resources that were not in a position to respond quickly enough to save lives.

Clinton, they concluded, did not personally deny requests for increased security at the vulnerable compound and claims of an order that the military "stand down" in its rescue attempts are unsubstantiated, the Democrats said.

A large part of the report attacks the Republicans for using the investigation as a political attack on Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president. Gowdy and the GOP have denied it was politically motivated, and instead is meant to be the final fact-based account of the circumstances before, during and after the attacks.

The Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks in Benghazi killed four Americans. Unsatisfied with previous congressional investigations, the House created a special investigative committee in May 2014. Despite a cordial beginning, the investigation became starkly partisan.

Democrats make several recommendations, including that the State Department coordinate with the Defense Department and intelligence agencies to "assess the willingness and capacity of host governments to defend U.S. diplomatic facilities within their borders" and if the host government is unwilling, the "sufficient diplomatic security or military forces must be available to defend or evacuate the facility," the report states.

You've got to see this -Judy Garland’s Daughter Honors Orlando With ‘Over The Rainbow’

Lorna Luft surprised fans at a Wednesday concert in New York with her first-ever live performance of “Over the Rainbow,” a song made famous by her mother, Judy Garland.

The singer-actress, 63, told the crowd at Feinstein’s/54 Below that she’d never performed the song “not because it was too hard for me emotionally, but because I always felt you can’t improve on perfection.”

Pointing to the June 12 mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Luft added, “I thought to myself, if I’m ever going to sing this, now is the time.” (Don’t miss the incredible performance in the video above)

Luft’s decision to introduce the “Wizard of Oz” classic into her concert repertoire had personal significance, too, as June 22 marked the 47th anniversary of Garland’s death at the age of 47.

EU parliament leader: we want Britain out as soon as possible

President Martin Schulz says speeding up of UK exit being considered after ‘continent taken hostage because of Tory party fight’
<snip>

Martin Schulz, the president of the European parliament, told the Guardian that EU lawyers were studying whether it was possible to speed up the triggering of article 50 of the Lisbon treaty – the untested procedure for leaving the union.

As the EU’s institutions scrambled to respond to the bodyblow of Britain’s exit, Schulz said uncertainty was “the opposite of what we need”, adding that it was difficult to accept that “a whole continent is taken hostage because of an internal fight in the Tory party”.

“I doubt it is only in the hands of the government of the United Kingdom,” he said. “We have to take note of this unilateral declaration that they want to wait until October, but that must not be the last word.”

Schulz’s comments were partially echoed by the president of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, who said he there was no reason to wait until October to begin negotiating Britain’s departure from the European Union.
