Yessir, Mr. Issa. We'll get right on that investigation lickety-split. Too bad we won't have our report for you until after the November election.
"I appreciate that you and your committee are deeply interested in finding out what happened leading up to and during the attacks in Benghazi, and are looking for ways to prevent it from happening again. I share that commitment," Clinton wrote in the letter, obtained by The Cable. "Nobody will hold this department more accountable than we hold ourselves -- we served with Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods."
Clinton said that the State Department's Accountability Review Board will begin work this week and the letter revealed the names of all five board members. In addition to former Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Pickering, who will lead the board, the other members will be former Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen (ret.), Catherine Bertini, Hugh Turner, and Richard Shinnick.
Clinton asked Issa to withhold any final conclusions about the Benghazi attack until the review board finishes its work and reports to Congress, which could come as early as November or as late as early next year. She pledged to work with Issa's committee and asked him to submit any requests for information or witnesses at hearings to the State Department's Office of Legislative Affairs.
Clinton was responding to a Monday letter from Issa, first reported by The Daily Beast, claiming that committee had received information "from individuals with direct knowledge of the events in Libya" that the Sept. 11 attack was "the latest in a long line of attacks" on Western diplomatic assets in Benghazi.

‘After the election...’... W T F ???!!!
I suppose that crone thinks she can kick off her 2016 presidential bid then.
This is the most craven political hustle yet. Even for the Clintons, this is a new low.
Is this like, “You have to read it to know what’s in it”?
Oh Lord, deliver us from evil during the Lame Duck period...Nov/16th thru Jan/20th.
Oh Lord, LET THERE BE A LAME DUCK PERIOD FOR OBAMA.
Oh Lord, LET THERE BE A LAME DUCK PERIOD FOR OBAMA, and eliminate his slice so he golfs the whole time.
She has to look for that report in the same place that her Rose billing records were stored.
You can count on this report being a major embarrassment to Dear Leader. Just like what happened at Lockheed Martin on holding off on layoff notices. Who is going to say that Obama will pay for LM’s fines on the layoffs. He will renege on that promise.
Sure thing Hil...only Romney & Ryan will have been elected then. So it’s best to cooperate now with House repubs rather than after the election when they will hold ALL the cards.
