The headlines would be screaming the above if the aforementioned trio were Republicans. Alas, the screaming is left to me and my lonely roadside blogstand...
Elana Johnson on Hillary's Benghazi testimony:
Secretary Clinton yesterday said that, perhaps out of an “abundance of caution,” the administration “did not conclude finally that there were no protests at all until days after the attack.” Susan Rice, however, was not so cautious when she told five Sunday news shows that, according to the best information available, the Benghazi attack was the result of a “spontaneous reaction” to a YouTube video.
And what did John Kerry say yesterday to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, during his confirmation hearing for (sigh) Secretary of State?
“...the intel that I got, and that I was told by people, is that there were no protests in Benghazi.”
Were he a Republican, the talking heads would be apoplectic, as they demanded more testimony from Senator Kerry, as well as a re-appearance of Hillary Clinton before Congress. But the media's driving interest here is to bury the scandal, so as to protect Hillary's ascension to the throne in 2016 and to allow John Kerry to finally get some payback for 2008.
Kerry wil be a perfect fit for the Obama administration, by the way. He has already promised to do his best to implement "President Obama's vision for the world" (shudder), and has quickly adapted the position of never admitting to error, even when it is staring you in the face: Jennifer Rubin:
Gonna be a hell of a four years, folks...
