Benghazi: If Chuck Todd says it's over, it's probably over

Chuck Todd has a message for Republicans still harping on Benghazi: it's over, people.

The panel on Tuesday's "Morning Joe" was discussing the new House Select committee formed to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks. The inquiry comes after several others into the attacks, all of which led Todd to suggest that the latest investigation is not necessary and is more of a "partisan" process than anything else.

"Iíll hear from Republicans that say, ĎBut there are unanswered questions!í Well, no, all the questions have been answered," he said. "Thereís just some people that donít like the answers, that wish the answers were somehow more conspiratorial, I guess."

Todd said that there were a number of issues, like policy or the United States' response to Arab Spring, worth discussing. "But to sit here and investigate talking points seems to be totally missing the larger point here," he added. "Itís like investigating who cut down one tree in a forest thatís been burned down."

His comments echo his remarks earlier this month that the new committee "looks nothing more than a partisan stunt.Ē House Speaker John Boehner recently named Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy to lead the investigation, while some Democrats who are threatening to boycott the committee.

So a house in my neighborhood burned down

It apparently caught fire in the afternoon. No one was injured but the entire place is charcoal splinters. My reaction was complete astonishment that the fire department had been able to contain the blaze--the houses are pretty close together--without anything, even trees or lawn on adjacent property, sustaining any damage whatsoever. Someone else's response was to put up a HUGE sign in the yard: "Thank you God for your mercy and blessings."
