Opinion: Debunking the GOP’s false narratives about the Benghazi attack

With the presidential candidates preparing for Monday’s final debate on foreign policy, it is time for American journalism to hit pause on the political spin cycle and — without taking sides — make three corrections to the record about the campaign’s most controversial foreign policy topic: the murder of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.

There are still radical groups intent on killing Americans. As one incarnation of al Qaeda is smashed, another one may emerge.

Win at all costs and apologize later is the rule in political campaigns, and the GOP has seen Obama’s approval rating on foreign policy fall in the aftermath of the Libya attack.

But this is one political strategy that is based on deliberate misinformation about the Benghazi assault.


I've been on Twitter a lot recently and I've been seeing so much misinformation about Benghazi and in light of the email released by CNN today, I thought I'd post this. It's nice to some spin-free reporting on this.

For those that are interested in buying authentic EVOO

just found this site: http://bit.ly/yYrgvE

How to get real olive oil

• Avoid “Light” olive oil at all costs. This is the lowest quality olive oil on the plant.
• If you can find oils with the International Olive Oil Council certification, go for those.
• Buy Californian olive oils, which are far less adulterated than imported oil.
• Do your homework. Find a reputable company or source and buy small bottles from them.

What Olive Oils to Buy… and Avoid

In the UC Davis study, these brands failed to meet extra-virgin olive oil standards:

Bertolli
Carapelli
Colavita
Filippo Berio
Mazzola
Mezzetta
Newman’s Own
Pompeian
Rachel Ray
Safeway
Star
Whole Foods

In the same study, these olive oils met the extra-virgin standards:

Corto Olive
California Olive Ranch
Kirkland Organic
Lucero (Ascolano)
McEvoy Ranch Organic
