    Scapegoating James Clapper Won't End Benghazi Scandal​

    Cover-Up: Intel chief James Clapper taking blame for dishonest talking points won't cauterize the Benghazi scandal. The country was still lied to about terrorists killing four Americans for the sake of Obama's re-election. As Benghazigate became a major pre-election embarrassment for the president, a number of commentators quipped to Obama defenders who minimized its significance that, unlike in Libya on Sept. 11, "nobody died in Watergate."

    Watergate is an apt comparison in some ways. The whole underlying purpose of the 1972 attempted bugging of the Democratic National Committee headquarters was to get President Nixon re-elected. The whole underlying purpose of lying about the killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith, and ex-Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, was to get President Obama re-elected.

    In Watergate, the objective was to collect information that could persuade people not to vote for the Democratic nominee for president.
