    Give it up, Herb. The Bengazi thing is over except in the minds of the craziest RWNJ's.

    Oh, that's right. You're one of them.

    Never mind.

    Dream on lefties. If you pretend nothing happened, maybe it didn't.

    Of course, no one is pretending "nothing happened." That's just a right-wing talking point.

    It's obvious to anyone with a brain that a major screw-up occurred in Benghazi. Someone in the State Department or the CIA probably did. And since, as with any American tragedy including 9/11, there's a whole lot of CYA going on by the bureaucracy. It happens in every administration, Republican or Democrat.

    What's different here is that Republicans who hate Obama more (much more) than they love America are trying to make a political issue out of a national tragedy (something Democrats who hated Bush had too much class to do after 9/11). Let's exploit the death of those four Americans and try to tarnish the Obama Administration with it. Let's have congressional hearings and point fingers and make Obama look bad, even though there's no evidence anyone around Obama had anything to do with this.

    But the endless series of hearings have found nothing. Wow, Susan Rice went on TV with bogus CIA talking points they may have issues to protect their operations in Libya or just normal CYA? Let's blame Obama - must have been an effort to protect his re-election, never mind that there's not a shred of evidence of that.

    I'm not sure if there will be time for more congressional hearings on Benghazi this year, what with the need for more votes to repeal Obamacare. But I'm sure more hearings on Benghazi are somewhere on the Republican priority list, way way above "do the people's business" or "work to improve the economy."

    Wow - the CIA is trying to hide the workings of its covert operations in Libya? Jesus, do these idiots have any idea how a spy agency is supposed to operate??? Why don't we just post everything al Qaeda wants to know about how the CIA runs these operations on the CIA public website. I'm sure that will make America much safer.

    It's rather humorus to watch you lefties blindly worship at the alter of Obama.
