    Watched the local news and the national news last night, and they were talking about the affair, showing the vid of the girlfriend talking about prisoners being held at the temp embassy, discussing possible leaked secrets etc etc....

    Benghazi was going the way of Fast and Furious, but you add a little sex and betrayal and Americans are interested again.

    A sad commentary on today's society and voter.

    Bill Clinton getting a beej in the oval office was a much bigger story than Barack Obama ignoring the impending deaths of Americans at a consulate in Libya.

    I agree. It juicy perhaps when it's just about the sex but when deaths are involved it says something about us as a whole.

    What's sad is the right's quest for impeachment.

    It basically gets in the way of some pretty legitimate issues.

    Well that's not what happened.

    But keep insisting on it.

    Because you guys are marginalizing yourselves into oblivion.

    Drama with the crooks in Washington is never sexy until you add a cumstain on a dress....

    I think in general Americans have become a bit numb to a lot of violence. You turn on your local news and in many places more people have died that day then did in Benghazi.

    Adding in the sex scandal and leaked information and now you've got something to capture their attention.
