BENGHAZI - It is unclear if this is the last word on the investigation, but it is NEWS.

SFGate, here, headlined, and stating in part:

House panel: No administration wrongdoing in Benghazi attack
Carolyn Lochhead - Published 3:53 pm, Friday, August 1, 2014

(08-01) 11:42 PDT WASHINGTON -- The House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, has concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, said Rep. Mike Thompson of St. Helena, the second-ranking Democrat on the committee.

The panel voted Thursday to declassify the report, the result of two years of investigation by the committee. U.S. intelligence agencies will have to approve making the report public.

Thompson said the report "confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down order (to U.S. forces) was given."

That conflicts with accusations of administration wrongdoing voiced by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista (San Diego County), whose House Government Oversight and Reform Committee has held hearings on the Benghazi attack.

The online item has six links in that excerpt that are omitted in quoting; and it gives further detail.

So, no report text for media scrutiny, yet; and it is a Dem reporting. However, it seems to contradict earlier Issa grandstanding and finger pointing; and the Republicans as majority party had control of the process that has led to this presently still secret report.
