    On Monday, President Obama tried this ruse again. But now that the media has finally woken up from a five-year infatuation, he isn't getting away with it. PolitiFact has labeled as "mostly false," Obama's claim that….

    Over the last several months, there was a review board headed by two distinguished Americans, Mike Mullen and Tom Pickering, who investigated every element of [the Benghazi incident.]

    Here is PolitiFact's reasoning:

    While the [ARB] did investigate numerous angles of the security issues, it didn’t look at who perpetrated the attack, nor did it probe the administration’s public communications afterward. No less an authority than the board’s co-chairman undercut Obama’s sweeping claim that the board "investigated every element" with repeated comments on three Sunday shows. On balance, we rate Obama’s claim Mostly False.
