Beware the Benghazi diction warsThis article by Marc Ambinder of The Week has put a smile on my face, imagine?
I started to redden the words that were just plain demonstrably incorrect and decided to let you do it. Tell us what's wrong with this.............have fun!
Diction debates therefore almost always obscure more important issues.Back to the specifics of Benghazi:
By the time Susan Rice appeared on the Sunday shows, the idea that Benghazi wasn't an attack by terrorists had been largely dismissed. That's why her comments seemed so weird. That's why people called her out. The zeitgeist already knew what the White House was allegedly trying to cover up. To me, that suggests that the fact of a cover-up is unlikely. Why cover up something that people already knew? And why do it so clumsily? Interagency rivalries DO produce Sunday show bungles. All the time.
oh, by the way...this mess of mischaracterizations and untruths isn't hidden in some leftwing site, it's a headline on Yahoo Homepage :-)
