Benghazi is not a topic I follow. I thought I would wait for the judgment of history on that one. However, I was given a subscription to a little magazine called “The Week: The best of the U. S. and International Media,” and it had a story touted as the “Final Verdict” on Benghazi, so I looked to see if the judgment of history had been issued. The story leads off:
It won’t matter to the true believers, said Eugene Robinson in The Washington Post, but the Senate Intelligence Committee last week confirmed what rational observers have known all along about the Right’s beloved Benghazi obsession: “There is no there there.” After a 16-month investigation, the bipartisan committee concluded that the 2012 attack on the U. S. diplomatic mission that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, was “likely preventable,” but found no cover-up by the Obama Administration. Potential rescuers weren’t ordered to “stand down,” as reported by Fox News. There was no evidence that al Qaida leaders planned or directed the attacks. …
They said that it may turn out that the attack really was the result of street rage over an offensive YouTube video as Ambassador Rice originally said. Who knew?
Spun the other way, the same story reads this way.
And for something completely different, it is reported that “password” is no longer the most common Internet password. It’s now “123456.”
