33. Agreed...

Something happened in Benghazi. What the extent of it is or how far or narrow it goes I'm sure we will never know.

The broader story should be how the Republicans have repeatedly politicized national security for petty political points.

I honestly think the Petraus thing is what was reported. FBI was asked to investigate by Kelly through her shirtless advocate. The FBI discovered the affair tried to keep it secret since it did not involve national security. Crazy shirtless FBI agent assumes the FBI is covering something up for Obama, he brings in congress, Peteaus has to resign because the investigation can no longer remain secret, and now the nation has to smell the General's dirty laundry. Someone will make a movie, bank on it.

As far as Benghazi it is certainly possible there is a lot more there. In an effort to use the attack to embarrass the President it's possible the Republicans are flirting with opening the lid on something that our intelligence agencies want to keep secret.

They are coming off as a party that has gone completely insane. There is no lengths they won't go to muddy the political landscape and try to embarrass the President. National Security, our credit rating our whole fucking economy are Not even considerations in their single minded pursuit for political leverage. I keep going back to the 90s because I think this is where it all started. Without really governing or offering any real solutions they were able to hamstring the Clinton administration with a series of bullshit scandals that eventually led to a "real" scandal. So now here we go again. It's all they have. Difference is I think (hope?) people are at last waking up to their bullshit.
