10. It's obvious to me at least
That the whole Benghazi things reeks of the CIA. Of course, are the Republicans asking the questions that might actually be pertinent here? Mainly why is the CIA there who are they training? What are they scheming and how is our Diplomatic Corps being used as cover for these potential operations? Of course not! That would put them in the position of being anti-defense. So instead, as usual they concoct a carnival of bullshit to keep the media occupied on what essentially amount to side stories that have no real relevance to any American outside of Washington and the Beltway media.
As one poster indicated our corporate media has long ago abandoned any pretense of objectivity or real journalism. They are there to do the bidding of their masters, the one percent. It's all a con inside a con wrapped in a con. Sorry Someone must have put an extra dose of cynicism in my morning coffee, so I apologize in advance. But seriously, does anyone honestly think the media would have ever uncovered Watergate as presently constituted? Since the deregulation of our airwaves we have seen a concentration and consolidation of the media and their message. The difference in coverage of Vietnam and the Gulf Wars are a clear case in point. In Vietnam the media through itself out there to find the real stories in Irak and Kuwait they were either embedded with the military itself or lounging in air conditioned hotels and attending press conferences conducted by the military. Of course there are honest and great reporters out there still but in a culture of information overload where every truth has four or five opposing lies that are allowed to stand in an effort to achieve some false equivalence only the people who really, really want answers are going to get them. Alright I'm done, again I apologize for being so freaking cynical, it's hard not to be sometimes.
You can always be 100 percent certain. You can never be 100 percent right.
