The Benghazi report from retiring House member Mike Rogers mystifies me. It says there was no cover-up. OK, fine. But these facts are still incontrovertible. Chris Smith repeatedly asked for more security in the months leading up to the attack and didn’t get it; the administration didn’t attempt a rescue in the hours that the attack was ongoing and four people died; Barack Obama left early from White House meetings in order to be ready for a Las Vegas fund-raising event the next day; the administration lied for days if not weeks about a “spontaneous demonstration” in response to a video.
What am I missing? This is still a scandal. But even if it isn’t, we have learned something useful: Republicans know how to conduct a non-partisan investigation; Democrats, not so much.
