Democrats say the moves reek of political opportunism and desperation.
The attack's origins were murky at first. At the time, Egyptians were rioting over an amateur American-made video mocking Islam's prophet Mohammad.
Then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice cited Islamic outrage over the video when she appeared on talk shows the Sunday after the Benghazi attack. Administration officials later said the assault was a calculated terrorist action, not a direct response to the video.
House Republicans have seized on a recently divulged White House "talking points" memo written to help Rice prepare for her TV appearances. The memo said one goal was "to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video and not a broader failure of policy" by the administration.
Republicans say the White House deliberately hid the memo from investigators. (Z: Well, they didn't present the email, soo... by the way, what about those "talking points" and their motivation? It was pretty clear.)
Many Democrats say congressional Republicans want to injure Hillary Rodham Clinton, a possible 2016 presidential candidate, who was secretary of state during the Benghazi tragedy.
SO, you see, America. NOTHING the Republicans can do OR SAY is legitimate, according to the Democrats/this author. Get it? NOTHING.
How does this country survive with the misinformation and mischaracterizations in this article and others? We know by now about Ben Rhodes' delayed emails which finally came out and need review! We know Lois Lerner isn't the only one involved in emails that finally were forced to come out! We know CBS's News Department, which I believe hasn't mentioned Benghazi in the last many months and never ran the Ben Rhodes emails!, is run by Ben Rhodes' brother. ABC and CNN have White House connections that are startling, too. How about this author mentioning that?
How DO we get to the bottom of situations like those above, which NEED getting to the bottom of since, in the time since earlier hearings, more evidence has shown up? Just bow to the Democrats and go away?
WOW. What can we do about articles like this? This piece wasn't in a liberal rag that runs all this kind of stuff, it's a Yahoo HEADLINE. And the author has the NERVE to mention FOX above!? REALLY?
