    Maybe, hopefully its just me being wrong but it seems like the Benghazi scandal is losing steam. Has the violence in Gaza taken away attention from this?

    This is a HUGE issue and better not be swept under! This Admin is GUILTY of not properly securing Benghazi BEFORE 9/11 after repeated warnings and requests for more help....not providing help DURING the 7/8 hr attack that might have saved lifes.....and of course the BS lies for days afterward when they knew almost right away it was planned terrorism.

    DO NOT LET THIS DIE AWAY GOP! His media wants that of course, dont allow it!

    Blood is on their hands. It sure would be refreshing if just ONE lib would admit this.

    It takes an honest media to bring these matters to the public. Suppose, during Watergate, we had a media determined to make sure the whole thing was covered up. Nixon would never have had to resign and no one would have been demanding his resignation. No one would ever have known. Deepthroat gave inside information to Woodward and Bernstein, two reporters. If both of those men had said "Not interested, we stand with the president 100% no matter what he does." There would never have been a Watergate scandal.

    Off course it's losing steam, it will go the way of the birther, fast and furious and the dozens of canards in between. Once the idiot fringe loses interest only the paranoid schizophrenics care.

    Katzndogz........... You nailed it. It all depends on where the media takes it. Fox was leading with it and others had to, grudgingly , follow as things heated up. Somehow the GOP has to keep the heat on and not lie down as they usually do.

    For the most part the media is a disgrace and mockery to those who died for a Free Press.

    The people are tired of political hay being made of a tragic situation. There was no crime committed. Saying something could have been done is nothing more than an opinion and lack of proper security can rest at the feet of Republican budget cuts, as much as anything else. Maybe the people have more pressing things to worry about like the deficit, the economy and what kind of future their children will have.

    Do try to keep up, Benghazi has been supplanted by the left handed sign of the cross (it's really sad when I see more and more idiot fringers uable to keep up with the latest 'scandal')

    There was no crime committed in the invasion of Iraq but that never stopped the Left from bleating Bush Lied People Died.
    We do not have good answers for why Susan Rice went around to talk shows to blame a video when the administration knew all along it was a planned terrorist attack.

    A few things both sides should agree upon.

    Carney lied for a full two weeks.

    Rice repeated the lies, knowingly or not.

    Petraeus must have had no vetting and should not have been put in the position he was, this is one major screw up.

    Why do people lie? To cover the truth, people died and Obama lied.

    Yes, people do care if they have a job more then they care about the truth, that was proved this Novermber. But the facts are pretty damn clear that the adminstration didn't tell the truth. There is only one reason people lie, to cover for the truth. Unless of course Obama comes out and tells us why it was in our best interest to lie.

    Yes. This issue MUST be kept on the front page of the Internet.
